What Do I Do When an Ocean Storm Causes Flood Damage in My Lockport Home?

SERVPRO Can Help You Remediate Severe or Mild Flood Damage in Your Lockport Home!

Storms can bring heavy rain, wind, and even lightning to your home. Sometimes, these storms can bring flash flooding, which can leave your home heavily water damaged. However, accidents happen, and what matters is how you react when a disaster does occur. 

For example, imagine your Lockport home suffering flood damage. A tree struck by lightning happened to fall over and break an upper floor window, allowing water to drain inside of a bedroom. In this circumstance, it is critical to get help to your home as quickly as possible. Fortunately, here at SERVPRO, we're experts when it comes to arriving as soon as we can. 

When inside your home, our expert technicians can focus on three main goals: removing the water, drying the structure of your home, remediating any affected belongings. Within these three goals, our other focus is on swift action. We want to get you back in your home as quickly as possible because we understand that it is not practical to be locked out for multiple weeks on end. 

The first thing we could do with this situation is taping over the broken window and then tarping it to help prevent even more moisture from getting inside. Secondly, we can begin to clean up any debris (twigs, leaves, branches) and then use a wet/dry vacuum to clean up standing water. While one team works upstairs, we could have another downstairs, using thermal imaging to look for hidden pockets of water which seeped below to the first floor. 

Should we need to make any flood cuts or remove flooring, we can do that before laying down drying equipment, such as floor drying mats and heaters. Our objective is to remove as much moisture as we can from your home and prevent microbial growth. Once finished, we try to return your possessions to how we found them, so you can go on feeling like your home is in its pre-flooded condition. 

When you need storm remediation, get help right away. Speak to SERVPRO of Eastern Niagara County by dialing (716) 694-7776. We want to help you get your home back to normal!
