How to prevent flooding in your Basement

Obviously, having water damage in your basement is an unfortunate event to happen in your home, but here are some ways to prevent water damage: 

1. Check for Leakage

  • Check for dark spots under pipes inside sink cabinets, stains on ceilings, toilets that rock, and of course, drips.
  • At least once a year, inspect your roof. This is very important. Repair missing, loose, and damaged shingles. Repair any cracked caulking and check for leaks around flashing

2. Sump Pumps

Make sure you test sump pumps regularly to ensure they will work during a flood. Here is how to do test them. 

  • Slowly fill the sump pump pit with water. Watch for the “float” (similar to the float in your toilet) to rise, which should turn on the pump. Then watch to make sure the water level falls.
  • Test your backup pump the same way, but unplug the main pump first.
  • You want your sump pumps to work to prevent any floods from happening

We at SERVPRO of Babylon/Deer Park are always here to help with any Water Damage issues. 24/7.  Just give us a call at 631-661-3802 "Like it never even happened."

Emergency at an Elementary School

water on ground Emergency flood at Elementary School

This school had an abundance of water in it last April. This was a very urgent matter because the school was still in session at the time. This situation needed to be fixed immediately so nothing will be disturbed. SERVPRO of Babylon/Deer Park was called to solve the issue. 

The first thing that needed to be done was to clear everything off the floors. Also, get rid of anything that was damaged in the water. After that, the area (floors, walls, etc.) was sanitized and then it was dried properly. No bleach or other substances was added because that can cause mold. The situation was taken care of professionally. 

Please give us a call at 631-661-3802 for any emergencies or questions. We are open 24/7 for our community. We are here to help "Like it never even happened."

One of the most important parts of performing any restoration project, whether it be from a fire, flood, smoke, mold or any other catastrophe is the preparation of the project. Here at SERVPRO of Babylon/Deer Park, we consider this one of the most important parts of our process. We cover, or move contents to prevent them from getting damaged. On some of our projects like the one, we are showing you could take up to two hours to just prepare the location for the clean-up. We had to cover sanitized metal units with a complete seal of plastic before we could start our mold remediation project. It is important to take some time to make sure you give your client the most professional job possible. This is what separates SERVPRO from the rest of the companies that are out there. If you want a truly professional remediation project done at your location, Call SERVPRO of Babylon/Deer Park.
