Flood Damage Restoration – York, Maine

Written by jsolloway on . Posted in , , .

Winter, spring, summer and fall all have their perks for York, ME residents. However, with each season can come weather challenges. Harsh weather can lead to property damage and the need for flood damage restoration services. Summer is peak tourist season for York. Thousands each year look forward to swimming, camping, cookouts and other activities. During these activities we also have to watch out for the weather. Every so often we enjoy a nice rain to help us cool off. But there are terrible storms related to summer weather. Not every day is a warm, relaxing day, even in York, Maine. In the spring and summer, you must always be prepared for thunderstorms, floods, and even hurricanes.

While many storms can be more common in certain areas, floods can occur anywhere it rains. And since it rains just about anywhere, we must be on our guard. No one is safe from coastal flooding. Floods are one of the most destructive natural disasters. As a matter of fact, floods are the # 1 natural disaster in the United States. They can bring with them intense water damage, disease, and severe business interruption. They can cause extensive property damage and can be costly financially. If, by chance you are hit by this natural disaster, you will certainly be in need of flood damage restoration.

Causes of flooding

Water is essential to our well-being. It keeps us hydrated; in the sweltering summer days, it provides vital relief. Water can also be dangerous. It large quantities, it can tear through communities engulfing everything in its path. Torrential rains can cause severe damage to buildings, people and animals. There are various things that can cause floods, from natural to manmade; some are:

  • Unusually heavy rainfall at the river source. In this case, water can rise above the banks and spill over. Unfortunately, this typically occurs in well inhabited areas.
  • Snow melt – after a particularly heavy snow fall and a dramatic spring temperature rise, snow can melt and overflow banks.
  • Irresponsible damming – when landowners illegally erect dams to protect their farmland, the water can be driven toward inhabited communities.
  • Natural disasters at sea – earthquakes or coastal rock falls can cause tsunamis. These massive walls of water can travel at more than 600 mph. When they come in contact with land they can cause enormous damage and loss of life. The tsunami that hit Southeast Asia in 2004 was responsible for the deaths and homelessness of 150,000 people.

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.
