Company from MA comes to town to help with flood cleanup
HERKIMER, N.Y. (WKTV) - Out-of-state businesses are helping with the flood clean up in Herkimer County.
SERVPRO, a company that specializes in residential and commercial restoration services came down from Plymouth, Massachusetts almost immediately after hearing about the flooding.
Owner Kenneth Matejek says that his team is removing debris, disinfecting, power washing and drying basements. He says that the excessive rain isn't making his job easier.
"I was here yesterday to give an estimate and today there is two inches of water in there and the water didn't come in through the street, it came in through the foundation," Matejek said.
They are removing all the dirt and grime from the homes that were impacted, but waiting to extract and power wash until after rain is no longer in the forseeable forecast.
