What Causes Most Flood Damage in Haddon Heights?

11/12/2021 (Permalink)

When a storm causes flooding issues for your home, SERVPRO is the team to call. Storm damage restoration is a specialty of ours.

Flood Damage Often Results from Excess Moisture, Hazardous Wastes, and Microbes.

Haddon Heights annually suffers the effects of various coastal storms and, once every ten or so years, a major hurricane returns to terrorize homeowners of the area. These powerful weather systems often cause flooding that brings damage-causing excess moisture, hazardous wastes, and microbes into local homes.

SERVPRO understands the numerous ways standing stormwaters promote flood damage in your Haddon Heights home. While some of these ways are more obvious than others, all of them can lead to catastrophic harm to your residence over the long term. A few of the specific means by which flooding damages homes and their contents are:

  • Waterlogging household contents and building materials in structural elements so that they deteriorate significantly in a short period of time
  • Bringing hazardous wastes like toxic chemicals, which corrode or disintegrate materials around your home, and sewage that irreparably harms whatever its dangerous bacteria come into contact with 
  • Filling interior areas with sufficient moisture to foster the proliferation of harmful fungi like those causing wood-destroying dry rot and damaging, odorous mold growths
  • Weakening the foundation and ground around your residence by loosening and dissolving the earth that keeps everything in place

SERVPRO performs several high-quality tasks, like water removal services, biohazard remediation/sewage cleanup, and water damage repairs, to combat these serious issues. In doing so, we are usually able to effectively limit the negative effects of flooding and quickly return your house to its pre-flood condition.

As helpful neighbors, the skilled technicians of SERVPRO of Haddon Heights/Voorhees would like to assist you in resolving whatever flood damage your home may have. So, call (856) 566-3388 whenever you need us.
