A Harsh Atlantic Storm Could Cause Flood Damage To Your Paramus Home

Living adjacent to the Atlantic Ocean can put your Paramus home in danger of flood damage. A severe storm off of the ocean could bring heavy rains, ripping winds, and rushing waters to your home. In these scenarios, it is imperative for you to reach out for help as soon as possible. Doing so could significantly reduce the overall damages that your home could suffer.

Imagine a situation where a severe thunderstorm uprooted a tree on your property and plunged it into the side of your Paramus home, causing flood damage. The tree shattered a window and did structural damage to the side of your home. Furthermore, the tree allowed for hundreds of gallons of rainwater to pour into your home. In this scenario, what is the best course of action for your home?

Calling for professional cleanup and restoration services as soon as you can after the damage occurs is essential. Heavy rain could have flooded streets and uprooted more trees near your home. However, those things cannot deter SERVPRO from setting out to arrive at your home as quickly as we can manage.

Once we arrive, our water damage restoration technicians (WRT) could begin to remove the tree from your home. We could use chainsaws to make it easier to remove the tree, section by section. After the obstruction has been removed, we could put a tarp over the damage, to limit the amount of rainwater coming into the structure. As we work with your home, SERVPRO can keep in touch with your insurance adjuster.

Our SERVPRO WRT can use a few different devices to remove the standing water from your home, including wet/dry vacuums. To limit the damages to your walls, we can make flood cuts. If the rainwater might have extensively damaged any of your floorings, we could tear it up and expose the base so that it can be adequately dried. Our technicians can use a variety of advanced equipment to dry out the structure of your home, including devices like air movers, heaters, and ventilation fans. Afterward, we can call in trusted contractors to expedite or complete any reconstruction or remodels that we may not do.

If your home ever ends up suffering from flood damage, never wait to reach out for aid. Speak with SERVPRO of Paramus by calling (201) 445-5588. No matter the time, we're here for you.
