SERVPRO Can Remediate the Storm Damage in Your Falmouth Home!

Falmouth was first settled by English colonists in 1660 and has grown to become the second-largest municipality in Cape Cod. The city was named after a port in England, Falmouth, Cornwall. Today, it has a population of 31,531, according to the 2010 census.

Falmouth Facts:

Early in its history, the settlement became known for:

  • Farming
  • Salt Works
  • Whaling
  • Sheep Husbandry

Falmouth Attractions:

  • North Falmouth Village
  • Falmouth Village Green
  • Waquoit

North Falmouth Village:

North Falmouth Village is a heritage site constructed in the 1800s. The townsfolk traditionally used the area for fishing and for gathering together in celebration. Many of the historic districts of Falmouth are excellent areas for tourism.

Falmouth Village Green:

The Village Green is centered around the triangular green of Main Street. It is a historic site and has been the town center since 1756. Many people travel here to see the traditional colonial layout of a traditional settlement.


The Waquoit Historic District encompasses the village of Waquoit in southeast Falmouth. It has more than 80 properties of historical value and was placed on the National Register of Historic places in 2004.

When Storm Damage Interrupts Your Life:

Living so close to the ocean can make it easy for storm damage to affect your Falmouth home. An intense storm can bring water, wind, and even debris to your door and cause trouble. Picture winds more than fifty miles an hour blowing signs, tree branches, and yard decor around your neighborhood. A mighty gust of wind could throw open the door of your home and allow storm damage inside. Storm damage like this could enable:

  • Blackwater to rush into your home
  • Carpets to become waterlogged
  • Mud and muck to cover interior rooms and furnishings

Blackwater is a serious issue and should not be ignored. It can contain biohazards, petroleum, gas, and other harsh chemicals. Should it impact the rugs in your home, they cannot be remediated as there is no way to ensure safety. Our team understands the health risks of contaminated groundwater and removes any residual amount as we begin the cleanup and restoration.
