SERVPRO Technicians Offer Fast and Effective Flood Damage Restoration in Milton

A town in Saratoga County, in the state of New York, Milton hosts a population of 17,103 according to the 2000 census. The population has risen since the census held in 2010 recorded 18,575.

Most Milton residents believe that the town was named after John Milton, a poet, while others say that it is the shortening of "Mill-town" since it was an active milling area. 

Milton has a total area of 92.3 square kilometers (35.6 square miles). Water covers 0.06 percent or 0.1 kilometers.

The largest river Kayaderosseras Creek popularly known as Kaydeross flows through the eastern part of Milton town. The northern part of the county is the Kayaderosseras Range, where the river originates from flowing through several cities within the county. The Kayaderosseras River also serves as the boundary between the Town of Malta and Saratoga Springs before emptying into Lake Saratoga.

Flooding history in Milton

The heavy rainfall in late June of 1972 associated with Tropical Storm Agnes caused the worst flood damage in New York State's history. On June 19, the flooding began in Westchester County, followed by widespread flooding in the Finger Lakes regions and the Southern Tier on June 23.

The flooding caused by the Tropical storm led to the deaths of 24 residents and displaced over 100,000 residents. The flood destroyed more than $400 million worth of private property and over $221 million of public property.

SERVPRO restorers can handle flood damage in your Milton property even without an electricity supply

When you involve SERVPRO restorers to help you restore your property, nothing stops or affects our restoration process. Our team of restorers understands storms can affect the electricity supply across your region. We, therefore, respond fully equipped with diesel-powered industrial generators that can run for long periods.

The generator can power fixtures such as:

  • Wobble lights
  • String lights
  • Stand lights

The generator can also power our water extraction and drying equipment, among other equipment.

Safety is always our primary concern before and during our restoration process. Since water and flood-damaged areas contain various potential hazards to human health, we equip our team with personal protective equipment. Apart from the PPE, we also use equipment such as:

  • Portable ground fault circuit interrupters
  • Non-contact voltage detector
  • Circuit analyzer 

When flooding strikes, contact SERVPRO of Sullivan and South Ulster Counties. We aim to minimize damage and get your property to its preloss state, "Like it never even happened." Talk to us at (845) 791-7647.
