Flood Damage Restoration Service – Berwick, ME

Written by jsolloway on . Posted in , , .

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.

The Nature of Flooding in York County, Maine

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:

  • Heavy rains
  • Overflowing rivers
  • Broken dams
  • City drain overflows
  • Storm surges
  • Nor’easters
  • Melting snow and ice

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.

Flood Damage Restoration Service or Do It Yourself?

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.

Soil-Away Provides Flood Damage Restoration Services

The owners decided to call a local business, Soil-Away Cleaning and Restoration Services, to take care of the flood damage.  Soil-Away is a local restoration business that covers Maine, New Hampshire and Massachusetts.  Soil-Away comes highly recommended from several businesses in the community, who claim that Soil-Away truly understands the New England climate and culture.  The owners were specifically pleased to hear about a restoration service that does not only provide services to fix flood damage, but also encourages the locality of New England.

Soil-Away sent their IICRC-trained professionals.  First, they inspected the flood damage, then they set out a plan to clear the building of flood water.  The technicians not only extracted and dried the facility using professional equipment, they also checked for mold and other areas of damage that were concerning.  Lastly, the professionals worked with the maintenance team to coordinate reconstruction services for areas needing more extensive repairs.  The whole process was quick and efficient, and the technicians were respectful and informative.  The owners were extremely pleased with the all-around professionality of Soil-Away Cleaning and Restoration Services. There business was open in time for their summer clients.

All I have to say is WOW and FANTASTIC. I just got done building out my new professional office with Soil-Away’s construction division and they went ABOVE and BEYOND. Scott and Mike, the carpenters are skilled artisans. The project got done on time and the project came in on budget! The finished results have been blowing people away. Much better than I could have anticipated. Anyone is welcome to come to our office, Bright Light Chiropractic in Hooksett to check out the fine work they did. Simply can’t sing enough praises for them. Sorry that the picture doesn’t do the job justice. Thank you Jack and your team. -Dr. Jay

Since day one, I’ve known the owner, Jack, to be a hard-working and selfless leader. Through the efforts of him and his team, he was able to restore my flooded restaurant to tip-top shape. I was amazed with Jack’s orderliness throughout the entire process. Jack has proven to me that he is trustworthy, as both a friend and an individual in the work environment.

Highly recommend Soil-Away. A pipe in our upstairs bathroom gave and sent water down through a wall for at least a day before we noticed water dripping through our kitchen ceiling. Our insurance put us in touch with Soil-Away and they were at our house the next morning to assess the damage and dry things out. Joe, Ray and Tom were phenomenal to work with. They explained every part of the process to us and were very professional and friendly. If you have to deal with similar issues call Soil-Away, you won’t regret it.
