SERVPRO Flood Damage Response Teams Can Help Return your Home to a Safe and Sanitary Environment

Flooded properties are usually full of highly contaminated materials and substances. It is vital to avoid contact with floodwaters as they are often full of pathogens, which can make you sick. The fastest way to get your home back to a sanitary state is by using a dedicated and certified restoration team. The Institute of Inspection, Cleaning, and Restoration Certifications body (IICRC) provide essential biohazardous waste removal qualifications. IICRC technicians can help with:

  • Biohazardous waste disposal
  • Flood restoration
  • Sanitizing

Contamination is often present in flood damage for Upper West Side residents. The key to controlling a site with contamination is through clear communication as well as through physical containment. It is usual for SERVPRO technicians to allocate spaces for decontamination rooms, storage for non-affected items, and clean rooms. We provide our technicians with personal protective equipment, and each team member is carefully vetted for their skillset and experience in dealing with the urgent emergencies presented by flooding. 

  • Wastewater can be pumped out of a building using specially designed electric pumps capable of transporting solid waste. 
  • Porous materials in the home can be disposed of at designated waste facilities or, if not contaminated, can often be restored.
  • Drywall, insulation, and other porous materials used in a structure must be replaced with clean materials. Often the framework, the structural basis for a building assembly, can be salvaged following floodwater intrusion. 

Floodwaters can be dangerous. Contact SERVPRO of Upper West Side for flood damage at (917) 498-1362.
