Managing the Risks of Flood Damage in Great Neck
SERVPRO Helps Great Neck Property Owners Manage Direct and Secondary Risks
Flooding after storm incidents is associated with various risks, including immediate damage to the structure or contents and heavy contamination. However, the passage of time can create secondary issues, compounding the risk to occupants or the people doing the restoration.
Proper management of a flood damage site in Great Neck helps mitigate various risks if done correctly. Appropriate moisture management is one of the primary ways to minimize secondary risks from flooding. For instance, it is easier to curtail mold growth through moisture management. Drying wet floor surfaces also helps minimize the chances of slip and fall accidents.
SERVPRO takes different steps to manage flooding loss sites, including
- Creating physical barriers by boarding up openings
- Setting up warning signs indicating hazards such as slippery floors
- Spraying EPA registered disinfectants directly into the water pooling in the house
By limiting access to affected areas and using chemical agents such as phenols and quaternaries to destroy up to 99% of microorganisms, we can maintain safety at the loss site.
