SERVPRO Specializes in Restoring Oyster Bay Homes After Flooding

Homes in Oyster Bay may suffer after copious rains cause damage throughout the area, and basements are particularly susceptible to rising water levels. With careful attention, homeowners may detect the problem shortly after it happens, but in some cases, water has time to permeate carpets, walls, and furniture before the homeowner finds out.

Homeowners dealing with storm damage in their Oyster Bay home can rely on SERVPRO to help them sort out the next steps. Restoration in a basement can be challenging due to limited access, but our industry-grade equipment and know-how, the process can be smoother. Invite our Green Fleet into your home and let us make an expert plan to restore your home as soon as possible.

Can wall-to-wall carpet be salvaged after a flood?

SERVPRO staff can help you determine which items to discard and what we can salvage. Due to the bacteria and debris living in floodwaters, we remove your carpets to protect your health. Other porous items such as upholstery and textiles may also need to be discarded while we apply cleaning and antimicrobial solutions to other surfaces. For the restoration to be complete, we focus on the following-

  • Water extraction
  • Achieving suitable humidity levels
  • Applying sanitizing solutions to prevent mold growth

SERVPRO of Oyster Bay gives you a team of experts when you call us at (516) 464-3300. Our experience and knowledge come together in your time of need to leave your home, “Like it never even happened.”
