Flooding can create many threatening safety risks and concerns for homeowners. 

The presence of standing water after a flood in your Jamesport home can be an overwhelming situation, and that is often before recognizing how many potential safety hazards and threats exist within this specific circumstance. Talented technicians on our SERVPRO team can reach flood-damaged homes quickly to begin vital mitigation efforts that expose structural weaknesses and other potential safety hazards that might exist and slow restoration efforts.

Safety Concerns that Exist After Flooding 

Flood damage in Jamesport, like standing water, can be enough to engage with electrical outlets or appliances plugged into active and live circuits. Electrical shock can be a continual threat to your home when standing water exists, making DIY inspections and evaluations of the damage a threat or risk to the homeowner. Our building trade professionals can begin implementing specific mitigation and repair tasks upon arrival. Some of these include:

  • Board-up/Tarping
  • Debris Removal
  • Controlled Demolition
  • Content Relocation

Flooding presents several safety hazards to those exposed, but our SERVPRO of The North Fork team can help when you call (631) 591-3771.
