SERVPRO Cautions Northampton Homeowners

Flooding in your home is inconvenient and stressful, and you want to start cleaning up immediately. However, before you rush to deal with the flood problem in your home, please be aware that people make common mistakes when cleaning up a flood.

If you are trying to fix flood damage in your Northampton home, please try and avoid these mistakes:

  • Using the wrong equipment. A regular mop and brush are not enough for flood damage. You need proper water extraction gear, such as the kind used by SERVPRO.
  • Ignoring the risk of hidden damage. Flood water can seep into walls, drywall, insulation, and wooden floors, causing damage. Our techs use monitoring equipment to check for hidden water damage.
  • Forgetting about the contamination risk. Flood and stormwater can contain microbes, human waste, dangerous chemicals, and other contaminants. We train our teams in the safe disposal of contaminated water and materials.

Our teams have the training and equipment to assess the situation and take action. We check for hidden damage, deal with contamination risks, and ensure your home is structurally sound.

Do not take risks with flood damage cleanup. Call SERVPRO of Hampshire County at (413) 324-1300.
