It might surprise you how your Brockton roof drainage system can affect the severity and potential for flood damage. It is important to remember that household configurations such as gutters and downspouts can be overlooked. Proper installation, maintenance, and repairs can all help prevent flood damage.

What are the purposes of downspouts and gutters?
You are likely to not think about why your roof edges let rain runoff into your gutters. However, this is a major reason for flood damage to your Brockton house. Rainwater that has accumulated over hundreds of feet of shingles would directly fall on the ground, causing it to flood your foundation. The gutters direct rainwater to the downspouts if it is in good condition and has the appropriate capacity. The downspouts should be able to meet the ground and extend so that the water reaches the soil 10 feet from the foundation. Also, it is important that the soil surrounding your home's footprint slopes down to prevent water from pooling or entering the space.

Flooding can occur despite the following preparation recommendations?
Even the best-laid plans can't prevent real disasters. SERVPRO is available to assist in the event of flooding . What should you expect from us when we arrive?

* A safety and damage assessment by an expert
* Boards and tarps are used to secure exteriors that have been damaged.
* After safety hazards have been controlled, emergency services are available
* Water not more than 2 inches deep should be pumped

* Portable extraction units can be used in tight spaces
* Containment and lawful disposal of contaminated floodwater per local regulation

SERVPRO employee working on an AC unit. SERVPRO of SW Onondaga Helps You After A Fire. Quick Recovery & Open Time. Call Us 24/7.

Air quality is a major concern when it comes to fire restoration in an Onondaga company. The soot that is formed from burning materials during a fire sticks to walls, ceilings and furniture, leaving behind a smoky stench.

It is tempting to turn on the HVAC to get colder air flowing. Please don't do this, as:

  • You risk further damage if any part of the system is damaged by fire.
  • It is best to not turn the system on until a professional inspects it.
  • HVAC systems can release smoke odors and sooty residue throughout an entire office complex

It is best to contact us immediately and not touch the system till we arrive.

What is SERVPRO's HVAC cleaning service?

Every fire damage restoration project should include a thorough inspection of the HVAC system. Our technicians are aware of how easily soot can enter the HVAC system. There are many ways to clean it.

  • We can clean the vents and grilles at the front if the soot has not reached them.
  • We have long-handled brushes that can be used to clean up any damage further back
  • Mild detergents can be used to remove stickier residues
  • To remove soot from the air, we can use HEPA vacuums.

Thermal fogging machines can be used by our technicians to remove hard-to-reach particles and deodorize every corner of your HVAC system.

When can you turn off the HVAC?

Our Franchise experts can help you determine when it is safe for the HVAC system to be turned on.

But don't worry, soot can get into the smallest of places. We can clean up any particles and leave your office certified: SERVPRO Cleaned.

SERVPRO Employees load equipment into a SERVPRO van. SERVPRO of Stoughton, Brockton • Disaster Restoration Services & Construction • Call Us 24/7

The winter freeze is on here in the Stoughton, Brockton area of Massachusetts. The last few days have stayed below freezing throughout the day and the potential for water supply pipes to freeze and break increases by the day when conditions are this cold. 

If you are in the unfortunate situation of having this type of disaster there are a few things you can do to save yourself money and stress. In immediate after math find the closest shut off and stop the flow of water. If you are unable to locate the shutoff you will want to call an emergency plumber quickly as stoping the flow of water into the build must happen as quickly as possible.

Next, if you can, remove water logged items in the room such as curtains, area rugs, toys and clothing, etc. The more damp items that can be taken out of the home the better. That extra humidity will quickly promote mold growth so removing it is imperative.

At this point your next best move is to call SERVPRO. Our water damage restoration team will provide the correct drying equipment and services to quickly remove any other wet materials such as carpets and sheetrock from the home. Then we will provide dehumidification services to stop mold growth.

Finally we can provide complete construction services to replace carpets, flooring, sheetrock, cabinets and more.

Call us 24/7, if needed we will arrive immediately to begin restoration services.
