SERVPRO Offers Prompt Flood Removal Services in Poughkeepsie

Storm and flooding events involve the presence of heavy rainfall, powerful winds and landslides among other undesirable things. Therefore, recovery and cleanup activities can be hazardous. The hazards that could be encountered include physical, ergonomic, biological and chemical hazards. It is necessary to hire professional emergency recovery and response workers like SERVPRO technicians who are aware of the dangers involved and take the appropriate safety precautions.

The flooding associated with storms poses a severe risk to a property and its contents. You can trust us to perform efficient storm flood removal in your Poughkeepsie residence. Flooding often leads to contamination, which may include sewage. Our SERVPRO team can apply biocides twice if there is sewage contamination. We apply the initial treatment before the restoration process begins to make the work-site safer for workers to complete the cleaning tasks. The biocides begin to decontaminate the affected surfaces but not disinfect the surfaces fully.

We apply a second treatment after cleaning the contaminated surfaces since biocides are more effective after they contact microorganisms on clean surfaces. A storm can also cause roofing and structural destruction. Our SERVPRO team has the expertise required to offer a wide range of restoration services to bring your home back to its original condition. Our restoration process may involve:

  • Removing debris and cleaning up the property.
  • Roof repairs due to extreme winds or water damage.
  • Boarding up your home to prevent injury or theft.
  • Contents move out and storage as restoration occurs.
  • Property reconstruction services.

We also address standing water during the storm damage restoration process. We can use self-priming trash pumps to remove the water. These pumps are ideal when little lift is needed or when water is supposed to be transferred horizontally. For instance, they are suitable for removing water from single story structures. Our SERVPRO team also uses air moving and dehumidification equipment that minimize drying time. We also use moisture detection tools to measure moisture content in all areas of a building to meet drying goals.

In the event of storm flood damage, call SERVPRO of NW & SE Dutchess County at (845) 635-4550 for effective restoration services. We’re Faster To Any Size Disaster.
