What Should I Do if My Carpet and Furniture Gets Wet After a Flash Flood?
For Flood Damage Repair at Your Residence in Coram Call SERVPRO.
During this time of year, it is common that a vicious rainstorm can strike the Coram area. Once the rain starts pouring at a steady rate, flash flooding can occur. If your street, driveway, and yard start to get puddles and water is flowing on them, it is always a possibility that moisture can make its way into your house.
What can you do if my floors and personal items get wet?
During flood damage restoration in Coram, our SERVPRO technicians start by trying to remove as much water as possible by extracting it while it is still a liquid. Then we can set up a combination of air movers and dehumidifiers to remove the moisture that has soaked into your building materials and contents and evaporated into the air. If there is a significant amount of water, we can move all of your contents out of your house and dry them in a separate location to speed up the drying process. If our technicians and your insurance adjuster find it necessary, we can pack up all of your items, move them to another location and unpack them to dry them out.
How do you pack up my contents to move them?
Step 1: We start by placing the packing material flat on the surface we will be packing on.
Step 2: We then lay the item we are packing into the center of the packing material.
Step 3: Next, we fold the sides of the packing material so that your items are completely covered.
Step 4: We can then place more packing material into the box if needed.
Step 5: Once the item is wrapped and there is more packing material placed in the box, we put the item into the box.
Step 6: We then place more packing material on top of the item, so it does not shift during the move.
If the inside of your house ever gets flooded after a storm, call SERVPRO of Patchogue at (631) 924-1801 any time of the day.
