High Pressure Supply Could Cause A Need For Water Removal in Your New Milford Home

4/23/2018 (Permalink)

Water Damage High Pressure Supply Could Cause A Need For Water Removal in Your New Milford Home Hoses that attach your washing machine to the water supply can fail causing a great deal of water to be dumped into your washroom. Call SERVPRO.

Team SERVPRO Understands that Quick Drying Services Are a Must After Water Damage in Your Home

Appliances are a leading cause of water emergencies inside of New Milford homes, yet, there are still many people that are unaware of how to remedy this problem. While preventative maintenance can aid in keeping the appliances themselves from malfunctioning, the pressure of the water in the pipes themselves feeding these appliances might be an equally contributing factor.
 
Your water pressure is going to vary based on your proximity and elevation to the water tower that services the mainlines your home gets connected to. When you are at a lower elevation and the farthest reaches of the tanks distribution system, your pressure is among the highest. Many homeowners opt for pressure reducers for more comfortable showers, but in reality, failure to reduce overly high pressures could result in the need for water removal services in your New Milford residence.
 
High water pressure puts a strain on hose connections to water-fed appliances, which can cause them to disconnect and pour untold amounts of water on the floor surrounding the appliances until this supply gets shut down. Once the immediate emergency has gotten handled and no more water is pouring into the affected area, contact our SERVPRO professionals to help you clean up the mess correctly to prevent further damages.
 
From the moment that our experienced technicians arrive at your home, we get to work quickly extracting the water from the area with the use of truck-mounted pumps from our SERVPRO fleet and wet-vacs with various attachments for concise cleaning. Drying the area is a process that typically involves using our industrial strength air movers and dehumidification equipment. Once the area has gotten successfully dried, we can assess the full scope of any remaining damage to structural elements and construction materials like flooring, walls, and ceilings.
 
While you might not ever want to need water removal services for your home, sometimes emergencies can happen. With our 24/7 emergency response team at SERVPRO of Teaneck / Englewood, you can always remain confident that help is only a phone call away. Reach out to our experienced technicians anytime at (201) 266-0482.

Mitigating Flood Damage within Englewood Homes

Storm Damage Mitigating Flood Damage within Englewood Homes After you and your family are safe, contact SERVPRO in order to thoroughly dry out and remediate your flooded property.

SERVPRO Remediates Flood Damage Quickly to Prevent Any Secondary Damages From Forming

Many disasters bring a multitude of risks with them whenever they affect properties in Englewood. As both a cause of perilous situations and a way for other dangers to remain hidden, water, especially murky, muddy flood waters, can turn your home into a treacherous place.
 
If your Englewood home suffers flood damage, it may seem insurmountable, but professional restoration can undo the damage and make your home safe again. Removing the risks, including those that can cause damage to your home in the future, should begin as soon as possible. SERVPRO's professional restoration technicians hold IICRC certificates in fields related to all stages of flood damage restoration and mitigation.
 
Our experienced crews are Always Faster To Any Sized Disaster, including flooded homes and businesses. We also arrive prepared and ready to start the work involved in restoring your home so your family can return to their usual routines. Interruptions such as flooding and other catastrophes can cause stress and other issues that affect people adversely. These problems only add to the already complicated situation, making it worse. This makes a quick recovery even more crucial.
 
Besides the interruptions caused by flood damage, your home's living environment becomes saturated with organic matter that includes pathogens, animal waste, and other unwanted materials. Motor oil and other vehicle-related liquids from the roadways can get washed into your home, as can chemicals placed on lawns and gardens. These can seem unlikely to cause harm, but in the interior environment of your home, they can pose risks your family should not face.
 
The water itself also creates hazards for your home's structure. Woods warp when exposed to water for extended periods, and metal fittings, fasteners, and other items can corrode rapidly. The glue under linoleum floors can dissolve and allow bubbled areas to form. Carpeting, due to its construction, often becomes so saturated with the filth carried by flood waters and requires removal and replacement. We have the equipment to dry these floors entirely so new carpeting does not rot or create the perfect environment for microbial growth underneath them.
 
Because water can travel up via capillary action, we use the Injectidry system. This allows us to dry out areas that otherwise might pose problems for us to reach. The tubing directs air from our air movers exactly where we want. Speeding up the process also saves you money by only drying out areas that need our attention.
 
SERVPRO of Teaneck / Englewood can be reached by calling our local number, (201) 266-0482, whenever you need our help dealing with flood damage or other risks to your home. We restore homes in the Tenafly and New Milford areas, as well.

Learn to Salvage Your Items During Mold Damage in Bergen County

3/21/2018 (Permalink)

Mold Remediation Learn to Salvage Your Items During Mold Damage in Bergen County Depending on the degree of mold damage, SERVPRO technicians may use limited or full containment to prevent the mold spores from spreading.

Rely on SERVPRO for Expert Mold Remediation Services

Apart from causing health effects, mold damage can negatively impact the quality of air and permanently damage your contents. If you suspect this kind of damage on your Bergen County property, we advise you to seek professional help. The remediation process demands that those performing the restoration work wear protective gear and employ techniques that prevent spreading the contamination.

If you decide to work with our SERVPRO technicians after experiencing mold damage in Bergen County, we document every condition and devise appropriate remediation procedures before the restoration work begins. Since moisture is the primary cause of fungi and bacterial growth, we use moisture meters to measure the level of saturation. We also check on the degree of contamination and plan to return your property to its preloss state. Stopping the source of the water is also necessary at this stage.

We may use limited or full containment measures to prevent spores from spreading. These might include keeping the room under negative pressure, ensuring HVAC vents are not running and introducing plastic sheeting to act as containment barriers. At this point, we are ready to remove the contamination either by physically moving the affected items or using specialized cleaning methods.

Our SERVPRO technicians can decide to perform wet vacuuming to collect any stagnant water. When cleaning hard surfaces, we can perform damp wiping or scrub with a detergent and water. When cleaning, we may opt to discard porous materials that have mold contamination such as insulation, ceiling tiles, and papers. High-Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) vacuuming may come in as one of the final cleanup procedures. HEPA filters can entrap mold spores and dust, which might have settled in areas within and outside the site. We usually place any unsalvageable contaminated materials that we collect when cleaning in sealable plastic bags and then discard them off as waste.

At SERVPRO of Teaneck / Englewood, We're Faster To Any Size Disaster whether it is water, fire, mold, or storm-related. Call us at (201) 266-0482 at any time of the day if you need industry proven restoration services.

Putting Everything Back Together After Flood Damage in Tenafly Homes

Storm Damage Putting Everything Back Together After Flood Damage in Tenafly Homes If your home is facing a flooding situation, get to safety with your family and pets. After that, contact SERVPRO to dry out your flooded home.

Certified SERVPRO Technicians Quickly Dry Out Your Home as a First Step Towards Flood Damage Remediation

Floods are the least predictable natural disasters that can hit a home in terms of the damage they can cause. In some cases, it is possible to salvage the home even if the homeowner has to get rid of some appliances, furniture, and items such as curtains and carpeting. In other cases, the homeowners may incur tens or even hundreds of thousands of dollars in damages. Worse still, mold may start growing behind walls and other places that are prone to water damage.
 
If you find your home in a flood damage situation in Tenafly, SERVPRO has experienced restoration experts that can respond quickly to your emergency. We follow IICRC guidelines in every cleanup job, and our equipment is up to par with industry standards. Our aim is to help you get your property to preloss conditions quickly and efficiently.
 
Flood damage often comes with chemical toxins, sewage, bacteria, and mud when the flood water disrupts sewage disposal systems and causes chemical spillage and overflow of waste sites. Porous materials absorb the water, but the contaminants stay behind and may present serious health issues. As such, it is advisable to discard porous materials such as vinyl flooring, upholstered furniture, mattresses, rugs, and carpeting, especially if they have been underwater for more than 24 hours.
 
SERVPRO technicians use various techniques to clean, disinfect, and dry salvageable items and fixtures. This includes those made of concrete, plastic, porcelain, and glass. For safety purposes, nobody should enter the house if the ground is still wet and the power supply is turned on at the mains. Indeed, apart from causing water damage, flooding can increase the risk of fire through the electrically charged water.
 
Electronics such as dishwashers, washing machines, and DVD players should be professionally cleaned following a flood damage event. The toxins and sediments from the floodwater are extremely difficult to remove. Some of these devices may not even be salvageable in the event of severe water damage.
 
Getting your home back to normal after a flooding event can seem impossible. As a part of your community, SERVPRO of Teaneck / Englewood is available 24/7 to provide quick and efficient flood damage cleanup services. Call us anytime at (201) 266-0482.

Water Damage from a Leaking Skylight in Your New Milford Home

2/26/2018 (Permalink)

Water Damage Water Damage from a Leaking Skylight in Your New Milford Home Skylights add natural light to your home. But the disadvantage is that they are another way that water can get into your home. Contact SERVPRO.

SERVPRO Technicians Receive Training and Have Years of Experience Drying out Homes After Water Damage

Having a skylight in your New Milford home is a great way to allow natural sunlight in almost any room. However, if it is installed improperly or it is not maintained, the skylight can develop leaks. Leaks like this cause numerous problems for you as the homeowner, including severe damage to your property. Leaking skylights need to be repaired as soon as possible to minimize the damage and stop the leak from spreading.
 
If you have discovered any leaking coming from the skylight in your home, getting it fixed and any water damage in New Milford repaired, it is essential to act upon quickly. Water damage can promptly create other problems such as mold growth, plus the leak can keep spreading. Our SERVPRO staff can help you anytime you need. We are professionally trained to handle all kinds of water damage situations in a timely fashion.
 
Airflow is one of the essential tools that we use. Drying your home efficiently requires that we use the right techniques for using airflow. If we place the air mover, so it blows directly into a wall, air not only bounces back but it forces moisture into the wall, which is not good. On the other hand, if the air mover is angled at forty-five degrees, the air bounces off the wall, and the moisture is replaced with drier air after it is carried away.
 
SERVPRO techs use a clockwise pattern to position the air movers, facing the inlet at the wall and with the nose touching the wall. We ensure all of the walls affected are in the air stream. To do this, we might place additional air movers in closets, offsets, and windows. Every time we monitor the equipment, we move the machines to the left or right in a circular pattern, so the structure dries evenly.
 
We also need to dry the ceiling. Airflow has to be directed across the wet ceiling to evaporate the moisture. Directing the airflow over the area circulates the warm air which has risen to the ceiling. With drop ceilings, we open a few panels on each end and direct the airflow into the open areas.
 
SERVPRO of Teaneck/Englewood takes the time to ensure your home in Tenafly, New Milford, or Teaneck is thoroughly dry after a water damage disaster. When you contact us at (201) 266-0482, you can be sure that your home is in good hands.

Combatting Commercial Mold Damage in Your Englewood Warehouse

2/19/2018 (Permalink)

Commercial Combatting Commercial Mold Damage in Your Englewood Warehouse When moisture forms on surfaces, any microbes present can become active and begin to grow and spread.

SERVPRO Offers Thorough Commercial Mold Remediation

Mold can grow anywhere and on almost any material, including the metal sheeting used in many Englewood warehouses. When condensation forms on surfaces, any microbes present easily become active, quickly growing and multiplying.

When temperature fluctuations occur in Englewood warehouses, commercial mold damage can get a boost because of the gathering of moisture droplets on metal surfaces. Because moisture tends to accumulate in the same locations repeatedly, any microbes in the area receive an ongoing supply that permits continual growth. These microorganisms continue to grow and soon reproduce via the release of spores into the air.

Once in the air, spores travel along the air currents already in the warehouse. If these spores land in a spot that contains moisture, new growth can rapidly happen. The mold remediation experts at SERVPRO hold certificates from the IICRC. Mold damage can affect not only your building but the contents inside. Removing mold growths found on non-porous items helps to reduce the overall microbial population.

At SERVPRO, we understand that any interruption of your warehouse operations by either our working on-site or the effects mold causes to your inventory can create severe financial trouble for your business. Our workers receive training on how to best work alongside our customers' employees in all types of situations. When finished products and raw materials become covered in mold, extraction methods using HEPA-filtered vacuums can often provide excellent results. However, at times, new packaging can work better. Cleaning inventory may not suffice in some situations. Reboxing and rebagging of items may provide much better results.

No matter what your warehouse' unique needs might be, SERVPRO of Teaneck / Englewood can help provide the services needed. Our Applied Microbial Remediation Technician (AMRT) is always ready to help ensure the best handling of your facility to contain any size mold damage situation. Contact us at (201) 266-0482, day or night, 365 days a year so we can start remediation services.

Restoring Flood Damage

If your home in Bergen County is in an area that is flood prone, you need to know some precautions you can take to protect your home from the heavy rains. The first thing you should do is install rain gutters and other drainage systems. These help to catch the rainwater and direct it to the ground. You can also grade your lot so that ten feet or so of the ground around your property is sloped at least six inches to funnel away rainwater. Sump pumps, backflow protection devices, and flood insurance are also essential things to have.

When the rainwaters have still gotten past your preventative measures and caused flood damage inside your Bergen County home, you need to act fast to get the water out. The best thing to do is to trust in professionals like SERVPRO to help you out. We have all the training and tools which are needed to dry your property out again and salvage whatever possible.

If you do not address the flood water inside your home promptly, your flooring, walls, carpeting, ceilings, and personal property can become damaged fast. An unsafe environment is created because of this, making the perfect environment for breeding rot, bacteria, and mold. Our restoration process consists of two major phases – flood water removal and flood cleanup.

SERVPRO uses professional grade drying equipment and truck-mounted pumps to dry our home out again. The pumps remove any standing water, and the drying equipment, such as dehumidifiers, large fans, and air-movers, dry your home out the rest of the way. We also have moisture meters that we use to detect any hidden moisture inside walls, flooring, and ceilings to ensure your home is genuinely dried back to its normal levels.

Any unsalvageable contents are also removed, such as carpets and padding, drywall, paneling, cabinets, or shelving. The affected areas are cleaned afterward with disinfecting and deodorizing agents.

SERVPRO of Teaneck / Englewood makes sure to thoroughly dry your home in Tenafly, Teaneck, or New Milford back out after a flood emergency. You need to get in touch with us as soon as possible after the disaster by dialing (201) 266-0482 so we can help you get your home back in order.
