Restoring Patchogue Properties Flooded by the Rise of Swan River

Swan River is a staple of the landscape and even some of the economic backbone of the Greater Patchogue area. Much like any other body of water, though, substantial rainfall over a prolonged period can cause water levels to rise to dangerous heights. When the water levels crest after a few days of collecting runoff from natural paths and the sanitary sewers, homes along the banks of Swan River become at risk for rising waters and flooding in their basements and main floors. Preventing this intrusion might not be possible, but restoring the property afterward can be more efficient and effective with the acquisition of our experienced professionals.

We know how devastating flood damage can be to Patchogue homes with the river levels rise to severe levels. Even if many of these homes only experience flooding of their basements, this can still be a costly and widespread damaging event that requires immediate attention from trained IICRC-Certified Water Restoration Technicians like our SERVPRO team. With readiness for all emergencies that threaten our region, our experienced team remains prepared for natural disasters that could occur.

Basements are targets for flooding

While many homes have taken preventative measures to avoid catastrophic water intrusions along the Swan River, these solutions are rarely entirely effective. With many modern homes throughout the region constructed with finished basements, our SERVPRO professionals must react quickly to provide effective mitigation services to prevent the spread of these effects to new areas. Our technicians implement controlled demolition techniques to remove damaged materials.

With the potential for chemical and bacterial contamination of rising floodwaters, the cleaning done by our technicians in your home plays a vital role in preventing the presence of hazardous contaminants and germs.

While you cannot predict when rainfall has occurred steadily and heavily enough to allow for dangerous cresting of Swan River, but when this happens, you can count on SERVPRO of Patchogue to help you through the restoration of your damaged property. Give us a call anytime that you need us at (631) 924-1801.
