Flood Cleanup & Damage Repair
Water damage in your Long Island home is something that you may have never considered to be a serious concern until now. The sight of standing water in your home can cause your stomach to sink and your blood pressure to rise. While water is essential for life, it must be properly contained inside the home at all times. Significant damage can occur within a very short time when water is not sufficiently controlled, so you understandably are concerned about the impact that this flood may have on your property’s value and condition. A flooded home may be caused by a ruptured pipe or another type of plumbing issue. A severe storm with heavy rains may result in water gushing into your home or rising in your basement. Regardless of whether your home is in Suffolk County or Nassau County, our reliable team at G-Tech is ready to provide you with the fast response that the situation calls for.
The Need to Act Quickly
The presence of gushing or standing water understandably may make at least a portion of your home unlivable until water mitigation and removal service has been completed. While this is a strong motivator to act quickly when you are dealing with this type of situation, there is another serious concern related to minor or severe flooding inside of a home. A common result of flooding in a Long Island home is mold growth. If mold growth develops in your home, the cleanup process is more significant, time-consuming and costly. Mold can dramatically impact property condition and value, and it may cause health concerns for you and your loved ones in the home.
