SERVPRO Acts Fast to Help with Flood Damage for Allston Residents

Allston residents could be subjected to storms that bring on flooding and water damage regardless of the season. If you have flood water coming into your property, you must be cautious when navigating any standing water. Not only that but having a skilled team of water restoration technicians (WRT) available to handle extractions and cleanup will get you the best results. SERVPRO is available around the clock for rapid flood water removal services and storm cleanup – We’re Faster to Any Size Disaster.

When it comes to all flood damage in Allston, there is a genuine concern about contamination. SERVPRO handles safety concerns from contamination within saturated materials to possible structural damage. Our team also takes added precautions to ensure contaminants do not turn into an issue throughout areas unaffected by the floodwater.

It is important to note that protection is vital for storm flooding anywhere in your home. Exposure to floodwater could mean possible chemicals, feces, vermin, etc. Should you have any contact with water entering your home, you can:

  • Wash hands/body parts with clean water and soap as soon as possible. If clean water is not available, hand sanitizer or alcohol wipes make suitable substitutes.
  • Clean any clothing containing flood water or sewage using hot water and detergent before wearing it again.
  • Any wounds that possibly come into contact with floodwater should get looked at and cleaned/appropriately dressed.

SERVPRO enters all flooded properties with the utmost caution while wearing personal protective equipment (PPE). We set up containment barriers, place drying equipment, and utilize pumps and truck-mounted extractors to pull up all standing water. Flood situations also call for water pre-treatment with antimicrobials before water removal services begin.

Flood damage gets handled quickly and effectively by our team at SERVPRO of Allston, Brighton & Brookline. Contact our team at (617) 903-5055 if you require assistance.
