My Camillus Company's Warehouse Has Been Flooded By Spring Rains and Snowmelt, Who Should I Call to Clean It Up?

Several Camillus Businesses Handle Commercial Flood Damage Cleanup, but SERVPRO is One of the Better Services

Spring rains sometimes bring substantial challenges for Camillus business owners and residents.  Seasonal storms, often delivering torrential rainfall, can rapidly melt the area's remaining winter snowpack. This rapid melt, in turn, usually floods local lakes, rivers, and streams. All of this tends to cause flash flooding that can suddenly, and without warning, inundate your commercial buildings. If you're ever unfortunate enough to experience such an occurrence, your business could be severely impacted. Essential documents, equipment, inventory, and facilities could be at risk of irreparable damage. Ultimately, if you do not act swiftly in finding the right commercial flood damage cleanup and restoration company, you might have to totally cease operations.

Why Should I Contact a Company Like SERVPRO for Help?

When dealing with commercial flood damage in Camillus, the old adage "time is money" rings true.  The more time it takes for you to effectively address flood damage, the more expensive it usually becomes to repair. Also, you often only get one chance to restore certain things like documents and equipment. If you hire the wrong cleaning and remediation company and its workers fail to properly restore these items the first time, they could become irreparable. This kind of failure costs you both time and money, as well as access to crucial business documents and equipment. So, what makes SERVPRO better than other area services?  Well, our company:

    •    Disinfecting all affected surfaces
    •    Eliminating any moisture from your structures and contents that is in excess of normal amounts

    •    Employing strong fans, air movers, and dehumidifiers to dry the interiors of your buildings, as well as any salvageable essential contents
    •    Eliminating unpleasant odors and harmful fungi with state-of-the-art foggers

SERVPRO's methods generally save business owners like you from costly long-term closures.  Moreover, they often enable us to save all your most important documents, inventories, and equipment. In doing so, you are able to return to your operations as soon as possible. These are not the only things our services do for you, however. We also help protect you from experiencing future floodwater damage issues like mold and dry rot.

Unlike hurricanes and tropical storms, flash flooding is not very predictable. As this weather-related phenomenon's name indicates, these floods can happen suddenly and without much warning.  Even hot dry weather can trigger them if the area's snowpack is extensive enough, and the resulting snowmelt sufficiently overloads natural and artificial drainage networks. Also, your commercial buildings are more susceptible to these natural hazards if they happen to be in a low-lying part of town.

Whatever your luck maybe, rest assured that there is someone that can help you if flooding ever affects your facilities. If disaster does strike your business, remember to act fast and get the right cleaning and remediation service to help. Contact SERVPRO of SW Onondaga County at (315) 488-3900 for assistance.
