Cleaning Up After Flooding in Your Portsmouth Apartment

9/27/2019 (Permalink)

Apartment building flooded on the sidewalk up to garage doors. SERVPRO is very knowledgeable when it comes to flooding in your Portsmouth community. Let us help.

Let us show you the way with your Portsmouth flooding.

Powerful storms are nothing new to the residents of Portsmouth, and property owners work to limit how destructive these weather events can be with a prompt response from professional restoration technicians. From hurricane-level threats making landfall from the Atlantic Ocean to the threats that can even attack the coast from the Piscataqua River, cleaning up after destruction and the related flooding of an apartment is a challenging situation.

Cleaning is a critical element to every recovery project that our SERVPRO team undertakes, and it has the same level of importance with flood damage in Portsmouth apartments. Strong systems pouring in from the coast often bring fierce winds that can not only endanger seafaring trades but can also circulate debris to break windows and cause widespread structural damage to the apartment building. Considering the torrential rainfall that can accompany these weather events, a breach like a broken window is the ideal opening to allow runoff and direct water exposure.

Addressing this situation often requires the use of confined space extractors like our light wants and portable sump pumps. Even when the building has lost power, we can utilize these submersible pumps that we can run off of generators. The ideal situation is to limit excessive discharge and lead hoses to the floor we are working on, so we work to have the specific extraction and drying tools helpful to your apartment explicitly.

Cleaning up the glass is also part of the process, and our team has a full roster of qualified cleaning technicians able to address each hazardous effect in your home after a flood loss. From clearing the broken glass to using our potent products to clear residues, dirt, and debris from surfaces, we offer a full-service approach to recovering your residence. We can even supply experienced general contractors to help with emergency board up and later full reconstruction of the apartment if necessary.

Flood damages to an apartment building put multiple properties at risk simultaneously. You can count on the fast response and expertise of our SERVPRO of The Seacoast to help. Give us a call anytime at (603) 433-4300.
