Sump Pump SERVPRO Says--Keep Your Sump Pump in Order to Help Prevent Flooding in Your Monticello Basement

When Your Basement Has Unwanted Water, Call a Professional Water Restoration Team like SERVPRO for Help

Heavy storms in Monticello can damage your neighborhood and your home. Even the most cautious homeowners stand to lose against rising water levels and torrential rain. When floodwater enters your home, calling a professional cleanup and restoration service is the best you can do to protect your health and home.

If you face storm damage in Monticello, call us at SERVPRO for assistance. Our team is available around the clock as we wear personal protective equipment and tour your home to assess the damage. With factual information in hand, we develop a specific plan of action to suit your needs.

What Are Dangers Of A Flooded Basement?

In our industry, floodwater is considered category 3, which means it carries biological and chemical waste that threatens your environment and family. With biohazard in mind, our team can connect sump pumps to sewage lines directly to dispose of extracted water safely. Other ancillary equipment which is necessary for a complete restoration include:

  • Submersible pumps complement the pumping efforts of sump pumps.
  • Industrial strength dehumidifiers to evaporate water
  • Injectidry equipment to push hot air within wall cavities as needed

Since groundwater is deemed Black Water, at times, it may be necessary to discard carpeting, some contents, and non-salvageable building materials like drywall or trim work.

Forgoing a professional service like SERVPRO of Sullivan and South Ulster Counties can invite more problems into your home. Call us at (845) 791-7647, whether you are in Milton or Gardiner. Our team will work with you and leave your home "Like it never even happened."
