Flooded living room If you suspect your home needs flood damage restoration services, don't wait.

SERVPRO is Here to Help You When Your Home Suffers Flood Damage!

Living on Long Island puts you adjacent to the Atlantic Ocean and opens up your home up to the possibility of flood damage. In particular, harsh storms can wrack your home with significant damage and leave you confused about the best course of action.

What Should I Do if a Storm Causes Water Damage in My House?
Imagine going to sleep and then waking up to find your bathroom floor covered in water. You did not think much of the rain pouring throughout the night because you forgot that you left the small ventilation window open in your bathroom. Unfortunately, the open window allowed for water to soak the windowsill and floor. You must get help for your home as soon as possible because flood damage in Bellmore should never be left to sit.

What Are Some Signs of Flood Damage?
Water has a way of getting under every nook and cranny. Wood has a habit of absorbing water and swelling, causing splitting, cracking, and bubbling. Furthermore, should flood damage sit too long, it can begin to create other problems, such as mold damage. Always strive to address damage as soon as it happens, to avoid problems such as:

    •    Swelling wooden floors, vanities, and cabinets
    •    Swelling wooden framing
    •    Soaked insulation between walls
    •    Soaked baseboard underneath flooring
