Assessing Contents After Newington Flood Damage

7/7/2022 (Permalink)

Caution WET FLOOR SIGN We aim to restore your property as quickly as possible, “Like It Never Even Happened.”

Contents Can Suffer Severe Flood Damage 

Floods are more common in Connecticut and our specific service area than most might think, making it essential to have a plan for restoration and recovery. SERVPRO responds quickly to these emergencies to protect your belongings from harm.

Where Is the Flood Damage?

The location of flood damage in Newington homes and businesses can play a part in the impact that these disasters have on the contents. For example, basements used for storage might ultimately be more costly in content restoration than unused attic space above a residence's second floor.  

How Are Contents Affected? 

The intruding water presents a formidable concern for any contents in the path of migrating flooding. Because we cannot often rule out contaminants and bacterial pathogens, many of our SERVPRO team's natural disasters are considered blackwater events. High category loss scenarios like these leave items at risk for: 

  • Water damage
  • Saturation
  • Contamination
  • Mold

On-Site Cleaning Strategies 

Flooding can pose substantial surface damage, including residual soils and contamination in some situations. Our formulated plan can sometimes include creating a clean work environment to restore damaged personal belongings, furniture, and contents on-site. While off-site restoration exists when necessary, local cleaning is more cost-efficient.

Are the Contents Salvageable?

Answering this question shows whether it is worth the efforts of our restoration team to refinish, resurface, repair, or restore damaged contents and personal belongings. Sometimes the homeowner can replace these items as part of the catalog of losses addressed with their insurance company, making it more reasonable to discard heavily compromised objects.

Your personal belongings and contents can be significantly damaged or even ruined by your home's flooding. As leading restoration professionals with effective mitigation strategies, we have direct approaches for protecting what matters most to our customers after a disaster.
