We Mitigate Flood Damage Around Your Schedule

The sub-zero temperatures of wintertime in Waterbury can affect your house in severe and detrimental ways. This kind of flood damage can affect every level of your residence.

An ice storm in Waterbury can cause flood damage to homes and businesses in other ways. Debris can block street drains and cause cold, dirty water to flow into low-lying houses. Frozen tree branches are more likely to break when battered by strong winds. SERVPRO® technicians can mitigate the destruction caused by any water entering from the outside. Rain might seem clean because it didn't pass over the ground. 

We mitigate flood damage wherever we locate it within your property. We carry the tools in our Green Fleet, ensuring we are ready and prepared for possible surprises. Here are some of the ways storms can cause flood-like conditions in your dwelling:

  • Ice dams on your roof,
  • Tree branches rip through your roof or siding, and
  • Precipitation draining incorrectly.

Insulation and other elements of your roof and attic need skilled and experienced technicians. We must remove and replace wet insulation, but we can dry out and restore other materials. We handle your stored belongings like they are our own, helping to ensure that fragile items don't break. We inventory these and advise you on any additional steps recommended. 

Sharp, splintered tree limbs can also cause similar damage. We take care of the interior of your home to mitigate any storm or flood damage, and we remove the branches. Afterward, we fix the structural damage to prevent additional rain or snow.

Basement windows, especially those with old caulking or cracked panes, can give way to standing water near your home, flooding basements and crawlspaces. We extract such water, disinfect, dry everything out, and clean so it's "Like it never even happened."

When you find any indications of flood damage, call SERVPRO of Waterbury at (203) 757-5050. We are Faster to any size disaster™.
