Fast Flood Cleanup in Mansfield CT Fast Flood Cleanup in Mansfield CT

As winter progresses into spring, melting snow and heavy rains often cause flooding. After the waters recede, you need a flooded house clean-up as soon as possible. At SERVPRO, we’re experts at performing water damage cleanup and restoration. Whether you need a simple wet carpet cleanup or a full line of basement flood cleanup services, we respond 24/7 and we get the job done fast. 

When floodwater enters your home, it soaks everything in its path. It’s not usually just water. Floodwaters often contain sewage, dirt, bacteria, and harmful contaminants. You feel less stressed after the water drains away, but it usually leaves a wet, dirty residue behind. It’s a messy cleanup but the SERVPRO team arrives fast to meet the challenge.

SERVPRO Emergency Basement Flood Cleanup 

When SERVPRO professionals perform Flood Cleanup, we realize that timing is critical. That’s why we only send cleaning and restoration professionals to your home. Each one knows how to clean up water in a basement, remove dirt and debris, and eliminate the floodwater contaminants that can make your family sick. 

We use industrial-grade extraction, deodorizing, cleaning, and dehumidifying equipment. We bring only safe and effective cleaning and deodorizing solutions into your home. We work quickly to eliminate water before mold, mildew, and bacteria begin to grow. 

Flooded House Clean Up Assessment

The initial stages of our fast flood cleanup in Mansfield CT homes involves evaluating the damage and planning our work. Each flood leaves a unique pattern of damage behind. To determine your specific needs, we complete a walkthrough and inspection.

We look for areas that need black water cleanup and other specialty processes. We check for signs of water seepage beneath your floorboards and behind your walls. We determine the best strategy for returning your property to pre-flood condition. 

Separating Undamaged Property

Before we begin fast flood cleanup in Mansfield CT homes, we separate damaged and undamaged property. This allows us to prevent floodwater-soaked furnishings from contaminating property that remains salvageable. We quickly assess each item. We then remove it immediately to a dry location to perform necessary repairs and restoration.  

Water Extraction

Water extraction is a time-critical task. After floodwater recedes, your rooms and property usually remain wet, allowing mold, mildew, and bacteria to thrive. We begin the dry-out process by removing the water with industrial-grade extractors. We do wet carpet clean up and water removal from wet fabrics, upholstery, and other porous surfaces.


We use industrial drying equipment to remove any remaining moisture. If porous surfaces remain moist, they encourage mold and mildew to grow. They release an odor that combines with floodwater residue to create an unpleasant smell. Airborne mold, mildew, and other post-flood contaminants move throughout your home. They sometimes irritate your lungs and cause medical difficulties. We minimize this problem by thoroughly drying out your home and property. 


Dehumidification is central to fast flood cleanup in Mansfield CT homes.  When your ambient air remains humid, the moisture eventually settles into your upholstery, wood, and other porous surfaces. We remove the moisture before it encourages mold, mildew, and fabric rot. 

To perform this step right, our team calculates your room dimensions, relative humidity, and temperature. These calculations help determine the number of industrial dehumidifiers necessary for the job. They also determine the best dehumidifier placement for maximum performance.  

Odor Removal 

When floodwaters recede, they usually leave an unsettling mix of odors behind. Dirty water, mold, mildew, sewage, and other scents combine to form an unbearable smell. Even after we dry out your home and furnishing, the smell can linger in the air and porous surfaces can absorb them. During our fast flood cleanup in Mansfield CT homes, we remove noxious odors with industrial scrubbers, foggers, and odor-neutralizing solutions. 

Repair and Restoration
