There Are Many Good Reasons Why Potential Flood Damage Should Concern Locals.

Berkeley Heights residents benefit greatly from the town’s picturesque natural environment, but sometimes also suffer at the hands of it. This circumstance arises because of the area’s heavy rains and sometimes violent, stormy weather, coupled with its swampy, flood-prone topography. 

Experienced flood restoration firms like SERVPRO know the potential flood damage threats Berkeley Heights homeowners face. These result from a myriad of interrelated natural and manufactured causes, like the:

  • Area’s heavy rainfall during the summer and fall months, which makes the town rainier than the national average and one of the rainiest places in New Jersey
  • Powerful hurricanes and Nor’easters that annually impact the state, rapidly deluging the region in inches of rain and overflowing local waterways
  • Low-lying, swampy nature of the town’s land that prevents it from quickly draining off excess storm waters
  • Poorly designed or storm debris-clogged city drainage systems 
  • Region’s overdevelopment which blocks natural drainage networks and hinders floodwater subsidence 

As a consequence of these various issues, town residents are more likely to require biohazard remediation, water removal services, and water damage repairs than people in other communities. Therefore, it is in their best interest to be mindful of local flood risks and plan ahead.

Considering all this, SERVPRO of Western Union County wants to help you clean up and restore your flood-damaged home if you ever suffer a flooding event. Call us whenever you need us at (908) 791-9177.
