Key Focus Areas for Effective Flood Restoration

Nashua is a beautiful city of approximately 90,000 residents. Some landmarks in its downtown region include Black Bridge, La Dame de Notre Renaissance Française Statue, and Foster Square. For outdoor exploration, the Nashua River Rail Trail is a peaceful escape. Alternatively, local parks like Greeley Park and Mine Falls Park provide a perfect setting for picnics. Other attractions include shopping facilities like Pheasant Lane Mall and historical facilities like the Abbot-Spalding House Museum. 

Whether you anticipate flood damage in your Nashua neighborhood or not, you may end up with an unpleasant situation where your home is drenched in water, mud, and silt. Flooding also degrades many structural materials, including drywall, insulation, and carpets. Responding to these changes requires time and resources. SERVPRO® is well prepared to handle such incidents. We also offer guidance on things you can do as part of your response.

Focus areas when responding to a flooding incident

  • Finances
  • Handling temporary repairs
  • Handling contamination 

Most aspects of flood restoration involve costs, whether replacing damaged materials, buying cleaning products, or seeking alternative accommodation until the issue is resolved. For someone dealing with an incident for the first time, you might be unaware of what cost implications you might face. Our SERVPRO crew chiefs inspect your property, determining the damage levels and hazards, thus helping you understand how long restoration may take, the necessary precautions, and the financial implications. 

Before you can resolve all flooding issues, your property may need some temporary repairs that limit further damage. In case strong winds or falling debris shatter windows or cause roof cave-ins, you need to protect the interiors from rain and other weather elements. SERVPRO takes care of this by doing temporary repairs such as boarding up windows and tarping the roof. We can also set up containment inside the house to isolate some sections from contamination.

Contamination by chemicals and biohazards is common in flooded areas since groundwater pushes raw sewage, herbicides, and other chemicals inside homes. Other forms of contamination include mold since microbial development is common in humid areas. Our crews combine cleanup, decontamination, and drying procedures to address contaminants. 

SERVPRO of Nashua is a reliable partner to help you navigate flood damage incidents. You can reach us at (603) 889-2311.
