What You Should Do When an Especially Rainy Season Floods Your Fort Lee Home

Having a home located near a river can be a fantastic experience, except when said river causes flood damage to your property. Due to an incredibly rainy season, the Hudson river collected a significant amount of water and became dangerously full during the rainy season. Unfortunately, after another thunderstorm, the water became too much, and your home took the hit.

Fortunately for you, the flood damage to your Fort Lee home was not catastrophic. As the water level rose, your home, which is located on a slight hill, managed only to suffer water damage in the basement. The floodwaters rushed into your home through an open basement window and pooled around your laundry room.

Understandably, you are concerned about the concrete floor in your basement, your washing and drying machine, as well as the furniture in your laundry room.  The most beneficial thing you can do for your home, upon discovering the flood, is to call for professional cleanup and restoration services. The sooner a company, like SERVPRO, arrives at your home to take over the remediation, the better.
