Stormy Summer after a Cold Winter? Get Professional Help for Paramus Flood Damage

When warm weather comes to Paramus, it is hard to fit all needed maintenance during busy, fun-filled days. If winter’s ice and snow bent gutters and downspouts, some of the connections might be loose, causing poor drainage. Blossoms and seeds from nearby trees also add to last fall’s leaves, creating clogs that interfere with the smooth flow of summer rainwater. Any of these conditions can increase the chance of a flooded basement.

Torrential summer rains sweep across New Jersey, resulting in flood damage to Paramus homes struggling with roof drainage issues. When water pools in a portion of a gutter, it spills over with force into a concentrated area of your yard. Since it does not follow the drain pattern that was designed to channel water further away from your foundation, it often seeps into your basement.

We see this flooding every year, and our technicians bring the tools and training to your home as soon as possible after your initial call. Our SERVPRO  project manager or crew chief assesses the damage and devises a plan to rid your basement of the current flooding. Team members unload gas-powered pumps and truck-mounted extractors to remove the water quickly. We assess the water’s category, and if contamination is evident, we contain and dispose of the fluids according to local ordinances.

If you use part or all of your basement for storage or living quarters, SERVPRO might suggest moving wet items either to a dry staging area on your property or to our production facility. Our pack-out service saves many possessions and treasures from the scrap heap. We use the Contents Claim Inventory System (CCIS) to track the condition and location of any moved items.

Clearing the flooded area allows our crew to work rapidly to remove the water. Minimizing the number of wet materials in the affected area during structural drying permits our air movers, heaters, and dehumidifiers to work more efficiently during the drying phase. To avoid flooding from the next storm on the horizon, you should consult with a trustworthy roofing or gutter cleaning contractor to solve the drainage issue.

SERVPRO of Paramus provides fast and reliable assistance when poor roof drainage results in flooded areas in your lower levels. Call (201) 445-5588 to arrange an assessment followed by prompt flood remediation.
