SERVPRO Commercial Storm Damage in Bergen County
Professional Technicians Can Get Your Property Back to Normal After a Storm
Extreme weather is almost a regular occurrence along the Hudson River the last few months. Storms have damaged commercial buildings (i.e. small and large businesses, industrial areas) in numbers typically only seen farther down the coast in South Carolina and Florida.
Attempting to remove or replace structural property and furniture with regular employees usually results in further damage to the structure and often personal injury to untrained workers. Cleaning up and repairing the effects of storm damage in Bergen County requires a professional restoration company. SERVPRO has decades of experience in restoring businesses to their original state and reopening their doors to the public.
Grocery stores were particularly vulnerable. There is more glass present to attract people, and large coolers and freezers require continuous power to maintain produce, meat and dairy products. One blizzard, hurricane, or a dangerous thunderstorm can turn the corner store into a large, open warehouse that only sells dry food, magazines, and cheap toys. Our restoration teams specialize in the following, emergency services to prevent further damage:
Boarding doors and windows – We secure broken doors and windows with plywood and plastic sheets. We also offer this service as a preventive measure before a storm can cause damage.
Emergency power – If the electricity is out, our response teams place generators to serve as a stop-gap measure to prevent spoilage of perishable foods. We also have generator trucks for larger businesses such as refrigerated warehouses.
Water removal – Rainwater and melted snow leave hundreds of gallons of water across the floor. We use commercial-grade pumps to remove it in less than a day. Quick removal prevents moisture from working its way under the tile or linoleum floors, preventing thousands of dollars in replacement costs.
Emergency reconstruction – Our response teams quickly perform tasks such as roof repairs, door, and window replacements, and shoring up damaged roof supports.
It is critical to respond to damage from wind, rain, and snow as quickly as possible. The sooner you start, the lower the costs are regarding replacement of property and inventory and repair of the facility. SERVPRO of Teaneck /Englewood is here to help you reopen your doors to customers and return your life to normal. Call us at (201) 266-0482 today.
