Flooding can happen in a Broome County home or business for many reasons, some related to severe weather or external water supply breaks, and some related to plumbing leaks, broken appliances, or sink and tub overflows by mistake or inattention. When a large amount of water invades, both structural components and the contents of your home are at risk. Our trained crews have many strategies to help you recover from this crisis. When flood damage impacts your home or office, your furnishings, household goods, papers, and other personal articles are often at risk of severe harm. Leaving these portable possessions in your home during flooding remediation also can interfere with the water removal and structural drying necessary to restore soaked building materials. A pack out of contents to a dry area on your property may be necessary to better impact the drying progress of equipment. Removing wet contents allows SERVPRO on-site crews to move through the damaged areas of your home more quickly and efficiently. Water removal, extraction, and structural drying must be completed fast to avoid secondary damage and progressive deterioration of porous materials. When the spaces are cleared, our employees can concentrate on employing powerful water mitigation and drying equipment not on moving boxes and furniture repetitively around the affected areas. SERVPRO inventories and tracks the contents packed out using our Contents Track proprietary program, using bar coding, lists, and digital images to maintain order as we work on restoring items and documenting the process for you and your insurance carrier. Our team members can assist in determining what is salvageable; we will assist in inventorying, and produce the final pack out. When flood damage exposes your home and its contents to potential ruin, a pack out of contents may be necessary. If you experience a flood loss call our office- we can help!
