Dealing with Storm Water Damage in Mattapan

Water Damaged Floor The first step to resolving water damage is calling your local trained professionals at SERVPRO of Hyde Park / Roslindale.

SERVPRO Can Conduct Water Damage Restoration Services in Mattapan

Problems with your home could arise whenever a storm breezes into town, whether a blizzard during the winter or a rainstorm during other seasons. Storms during the wintertime can bring about different conditions, but damage to your house could still arise from frozen pipes, ice dams, or floods due to rapidly melting snow. Anytime moisture enters your house outside the pipes where it is supposed to be; issues can arise. And, if the source of the moisture is H2O coming inside from the outdoors, contamination could become another issue. 

When storms cause water damage in Mattapan, our SERVPRO technicians can assist you with restoration procedures. We know that any time moisture from the outside gets inside your home, we must provide prompt action to prevent secondary issues. Rainwater or moisture coming up from the ground could be contaminated, so we can take extra precautions to prevent contaminants from spreading to previously unaffected areas of your structure. 

One thing we can do is set up a containment area around where moisture has entered. We can attach an air scrubber to the containment chamber to create negative pressure within the region. The air scrubber will then suck all of the air through a HEPA filter that traps harmful particles before dispensing the air back into the atmosphere. Establishing good containment with an air scrubber attached can help prevent any harmful particles from getting airborne and spreading throughout your home. 

We can conduct the following when dealing with contaminated water:

  • Use a submersible pump for standing water deeper than two inches
  • Use a portable extractor to remove moisture from furniture or tight spaces
  • Use a heavy-duty extractor to remove water from thick carpets
  • Set up dehumidifiers and air movers

If moisture from the outdoors enters your home in any way after a storm strikes your neighborhood, call SERVPRO of Hyde Park / Roslindale at (857) 399-9797.
