Flooded Room Don’t let your property be a victim of flood damage, SERVPRO of Allston, Brighton & Brookline is only a call away.

Brookline Flood Damage Cleanup Services

Storms can cause many problems for your home, from damaging the shingles on the roof to removing siding. One of the greatest threats to homes is flood losses, where penetrating water makes its way into areas like the basement of your house. 

Where Did Floodwater Enter Your Home?

Flood damage for Brookline properties, especially in the basement, must be carefully evaluated and inspected. Knowing where the water entered this lower level of your household can show where actions will be needed to repair the foundation or seal up vulnerabilities. 

Effective Floodwater Extraction

Standing water is one of the greatest obstacles in professional cleaning and restoration of these disasters. Because of the potential for debris and solids in the water, not all of the extraction tools in our inventory are capable of helping the situation. Larger discharge options like the trash pumps and truck-mount extractors provide consistent pull of standing water without being significantly slowed by floating debris concerns.

Starting Muck-Out Cleaning

Cleaning after a flood is a much-needed action for our team to take. Natural flooding introduces contaminants and debris into the structure, which can become plastered to vertical surfaces, float in standing water, or cake to the flooring as water recedes. Muck-out cleaning involves shovels, wet vacuums, and other tools from our inventory to collect and safely dispose of:

  • Organic Matter
  • Debris
  • Bugs
  • Solids
  • Contaminants

Complete Drying Solutions

Drying involves numerous strategies. The full scope is to remove water damage from building materials, surfaces, and the environment. Achieving this is a product of combining tools like air movers and dehumidifiers to promote efficient evaporation solutions. Air movers are placed at a 45-degree angle to offer continuous moisture removal across a broad surface area.

Flood damage can be a compromising situation for your home. You must work on overcoming these conditions as soon as possible, and our SERVPRO of Allston, Brighton & Brookline team is ready to respond with storm damage relief and cleanup. Call us at (617) 903-5055.
