Cleaning Up Rockaway Park Homes After Storm and Water Damage
Water Damage Resulting from Storms
The New York City area experiences severe weather throughout all seasons of the year, so Rockaway Park homes and businesses must stay prepared to face the threats involved. Violent winds, torrential rain, and heavy snowfall can all take their toll on your residence, introducing water into several areas of the structure.
Water damage in Rockaway Park requires specific approaches and mitigation when it results from storm losses. The first step must be to determine the damage's extent and affected areas of the property. We have a fast-responding mitigation team for emergency services and repairs. SERVPRO understands the vulnerabilities of the house based on where water enters.
- Water Through the Roof
From fallen trees to wind damage that destroys portions of shingles on the roof, water can easily make its way into the attic from damage to this structural system.
- Water Though the Exterior
Other exterior elements that make up the building envelope can also become compromised by severe storm systems or freezing conditions. The water behind the veneer of the building must be dried and removed promptly before mold damage results.
- Water in the Basement
Through vulnerabilities in the foundation or entry via below-grade stairwells, water in the basement level of the building can be a challenge to extract and manage.
Effective Water Removal and Cleanup
Knowing where the water comes from can help start repairs, but when the water has already made it inside, our SERVPRO team must also mitigate loss with effective water removal. We use extraction tools like pumps and vacuums first to clear surface pooling. Effective drying can follow with strategically placed air movers and dehumidifiers throughout the affected rooms.
Storms are not an uncommon part of living in our service area. When your home suffers damage that introduces water into your living spaces, contact our SERVPRO of The Rockaways, Coney Island team. Our disaster response crew is ready 24/7 at (718) 400-9051.
