What Kinds of Flooding Can Damage Your Home? 

Not all flooding situations are the same, so knowing how floodwater entered your Newburgh home can be vital to determining the best approach for restoring the damage. Often there are a few primary varieties of flooding common to the area, including flash flooding, natural rising floodwaters, and water penetration from structural breaches like roof vulnerabilities. Each of these situations involves a pressing need for repair and restoration practices like extraction and cleaning. 

What Steps Can Our Team Take to Get Control?  

Extraction and water removal are the heart of flood recovery, and this can involve multiple tools and technologies. Standing water in your Newburgh home or business can lead to unfavorable conditions like structural deterioration, microbial growth, or the spread of contaminants. Through equipment like submersible pumps and wet vacuums, we can remove standing surface water and prepare the home for effective drying with air movers, dehumidifiers, and other specialty drying tools.
