After a long winter, just after the snow and ice has melted, the owners arrived to their seasonal business in Berwick, Maine. They are eager to prepare and clean up the property for the summer, only to find that it was flooded. The owners of the business now seek a flood damage restoration service to restore the facility back to its pre-flooded state.
New England is known for its messy and muddy springs, humid weather in the summer, its beautiful trees in the fall and harsh winters. The farther people travel north, the colder the weather gets in winter months. Water damage can occur in so many different ways within the ever-changing New England climate, whether it be summer, spring, or winter. There are many causes of flooding, which are common to New England. These include:
Being the northernmost New England state, but also by the shore, Maine can experience a large amount of snow during the winter, heavy rains, and storm surges in the summer that cause overflow of bodies of water throughout the state. Both of these can lead to flooding if the weather is severe enough. In the case of the seasonal business in Berwick, ME, flooding occurred when the snow melted in the early spring, due to an extreme increase in temperature. Now the owners and maintenance staff are in a bind to clean and open the facility in time for the summer season.
The maintenance staff first evaluated the flood damage. They started to take care of most of the flood damage themselves. However, they couldn’t complete this task as quickly as they needed to and they did not know the dangers of handling flood damage all by themselves. The owners decided that it was best to hire a professional flood damage restoration service. Trained professionals would complete the job both quickly and efficiently, as well as get the maintenance staff on schedule to fix up the building before the first summer customers arrive.
The owners decided to call a local business, Soil-Away Cleaning and Restoration Services, to take care of the flood damage.
