Storm Damage Cleanup and Restoration

SERVPRO of Northern Sussex County cares about your safety.  Please follow these safety tips when dealing with a storm flooding situation:

  • Sometimes the power goes out after a flood. Many people use portable generators for electricity during flood cleanup which produce carbon monoxide (CO). You cannot see or smell CO, but it could kill you in minutes if you breathe it in. Use portable generators and other devices OUTSIDE and FAR AWAY from buildings.
  • If any area of your home or business has standing water, ensure that power is off before entering that area to avoid possible electric shocks.
  • Before you enter or inspect a home that may be moldy, keep in mind that breathing in mold may cause health effects, such as allergic reactions or respiratory irritation. Be sure to protect yourself from exposure to mold and other contaminants.
  • Remove standing water as soon as possible.  Microorganisms, such as bacteria, can multiply and grow in standing water. From there, they can get in the air, where you can inhale them. 
  • Dry out your home or business and remove wet materials as soon as possible to prevent mold growth by calling SERVPRO of Northern Sussex County.
  • Use special caution if asbestos.  Elevated concentrations of airborne asbestos can occur if asbestos-containing materials present in the structure are disturbed. Airborne asbestos can cause lung cancer and mesothelioma, a cancer of the chest and abdominal linings.  If you suspect asbestos is present, STOP! and call in a professional.
