Everywhere is a flood zone, but areas near bodies of water or coastlines, such as New Windsor, NY, are particularly at risk. It’s best to assess the risk of flooding and what to do before, during, and after a flood to ensure the safety of you and your loved ones.

With its location on a river and a coastline, New Windsor and its neighboring New York areas are susceptible to flooding.
Likewise, with the addition of global warming, locations like New Windsor are even more likely to experience flooding when melting glaciers and rising sea levels occur.
New Windsor isn’t always at a high risk of flooding, but its risk level is moderate, meaning that over the next 30 years, floods will likely increase in the New Windsor area, impacting the day-to-day life of the local community.
While only a relatively small number of people currently live on exposed land, the risk of flooding will only increase as the threat of climate change becomes a reality.
The areas most a risk are those situated by the water. Likewise, those on the lower ground will also likely suffer from flooding.
Following a flood, floodwater might contain sewage. Eating or drinking any item contaminated by such water could introduce E.Coli or Salmonella into your body, causing diarrheal disease. Ensure you wash your hands thoroughly and discard any contaminated food or drink.
Infectious diseases such as hepatitis A, typhoid fever, and Leptospirosis pass through floodwater, with severe health consequences. Likewise, with so much water acting as a breeding ground for mosquitos, mosquito-borne disease can also spread more quickly.
After a flood, roads will likely crowd, making it difficult for emergency services to reach people in need, alongside plumbers and electricians aiming to restore power or remove sewage.
With flooding comes property damage, which can affect both the internal and external components of your home, damage including but not limited to:
While New Windsor has thus far managed to avoid continuous flooding, you must prepare adequately in the event of a flood to prevent adverse aftermath effects.
When flood water enters your home, the extent of the damage can be significant. Your walls, floorboards, and carpets can suffer water damage, as well as your objects and furniture.
If your home has suffered from a flood, there will likely be leaks, especially if the flooding is also a result of a natural disaster like a hurricane. The damage to your property results in water getting into your house long after the flood, potentially causing more internal damage.
When flooding occurs, the excess water can cause a sudden flow into the sewage system, which can cause sewage to back up into homes. When the water on the street pours into the sewage system, even after a heavy storm, the water can surface in basements, and if it can’t drain properly, the sewage system floods.
Mold can be highly hazardous, and should you have it in your home, you and your family are at a greater risk of:
Importantly, those with respiratory conditions like asthma are at a higher risk of severe reactions.

Over the weekend we discovered a discoloration in our bedroom wall and immediately suspected water damage. I called All Dry on Tuesday and made an appointment for the following day. All Dry was very professional and performed well. I was very happy with the service and would use them again or recommend them to a neighbor or friend.
Blake and his crew came out by 9:30 in the morning and immediately looked over the damage and where water had started from. They were very professional and took great care of furnishings and household items They were very courteous and understandable to my mom whose dementia was pronounced with the flood. Very helpful team.
We had a water leak in our in our bedroom with mold. Blake came out and thoroughly examined the damage helping us get to the root of the problem. He helped us develop a treatment plan for our mold problem and reassured us. He was great. I will definitely refer All Dry restoration to anyone with issues like ours.
