SERVPRO Offers Flood Damage Restoration in New Brunswick

Even a small amount of floodwater seeping into a home in New Brunswick can cause a great deal of damage, especially in finished basements where the water collects. Carpets and under padding along with the subfloor may be soaked with water. Any delay in removing the water and lowering the humidity levels can lead to mold growth. Mold colonies can materialize in as little as 24 hours, and mold can cause health effects for many people.

SERVPRO responds in less than four hours, providing flood damage restoration in New Brunswick homes. Our quick response team can begin removing water immediately and lowering the humidity levels before mold spores form into colonies.

We use weighted water extractors to remove excess water from the carpeting and the underpad. Dehumidifiers and air movers usually are sufficient to dry the flooring materials and reduce the humidity to acceptable levels. However, there are situations where we must remove the carpet to expose the underpad and the subfloor to dry them properly.

Our SERVPRO technicians are careful to avoid damaging the carpet and your home in this process:

  • We avoid folding the carpet, as the rug is removed, exposing the underpad, which can cause creases.
  • We are careful to avoid damaging the walls or baseboard.
  • If the under-pad must be replaced, we bag it in the room before removing It for disposal to avoid water dripping onto unaffected areas.
  • The subfloor is dried, and a new underpad is installed before reinstalling the dried carpet.

Our water removal technicians can answer any questions you may have about our water removal services.

Mold Damage Mitigation and Restoration Service in Somerset

Remove Mold Spores and Damage in Somerset

High moisture and humidity levels, along with warm conditions, can lead to mold colonies forming and causing mold damage in Somerset homes. With the right conditions, mold colonies can begin growing in as little as 24 hours after a water leak or humid, warm conditions inside your home. Drywall, carpeting, and structural materials can be damaged and often needing to be replaced.

SERVPRO provides mold damage mitigation and restoration in Somerset homes. Our highly trained technicians evaluate the mold infestation, the surface that is affected, whether it is porous or nonporous, and the moisture source that contributes to mold growing in the space. SERVPRO AMRT - Applied Microbial Remediation Technicians and restoration specialists assist in removing and restoring your home.

One of the first actions is to remove the source of the moisture. Nonporous surfaces such as glass, plastics, and metal can be cleaned and disinfected. Active mold growth on porous materials such as drywall, particle board, fabrics must be removed and discarded. Insulation inside walls must also be removed and discarded once contaminated by mold. Heavily contaminated surfaces such as wood studs in the walls are usually replaced.

SERVPRO manages cleaning and control of mold spores by:

  • HEPA vacuuming and damp wiping
  • Cleaning from top to bottom since mold spores usually settle downward
  • We clean surfaces in the direction of airflow
  • We set up negative air pressure rooms to avoid contamination of other areas of the premises.

Once everything is cleaned, SERVPRO dries the structure and the contents to stop further mold growth. Our teams can restore damaged areas and contents to their original conditions, “Like it never even happened.”

SERVPRO Provides Flood Damage Repairs & Restoration in SERVPRO

Not only do storms cause a great deal of flood damage to homes in Somerset, but water and moisture allowed to remain in place too long can also cause secondary damage to structure and contents exposed to floodwaters. Wood floors absorb moisture and begin to swell, and subfloors may lose their integrity if floodwaters remain and the structure is not dried.

SERVPRO provides flood damage restoration, repairs in Somerset, and temporary board-up services to homes damaged in Somerset during a storm. Technicians respond in less than four hours from your call providing equipment and technicians to remove debris and floodwaters from your home.

Floodwaters can also carry contaminants into your home, which are harmful to your family and your pets. These contaminants may include –

Carpeting, underpads, fabrics, and other porous materials must be removed and disposed of due to the contamination from these hazardous materials. Flood cuts along walls may also be required if water has penetrated the wall, leaving water pockets inside. The drywall may have been damaged due to the absorption of water.

We also check for compromised electrical systems, which can pose a hazard to anyone entering the home. If necessary, we can provide temporary power systems to run pumps and water extractors to remove water, along with air movers and dehumidifiers to dry your home.

Upon arrival, SERVPRO evaluates the situation, reviews the damage with you and your insurance adjuster, and makes recommendations on how to proceed. We aim to minimize the secondary damage caused by the storm and floodwaters and return your structure to preloss condition as quickly as possible.

SERVPRO Delivers Water Damage Repairs from Storms and Flood Damage in Somerset

Storms can roll through our area delivering high winds and heavy rain, causing damage to roofs, windows, and flooding that can inundate a Somerset home in minutes. Even if your home does not experience flood damage, projectiles carried by high winds can cause roof punctures and break windows. The rain washes into the roof area and through windows, causing water damage to your contents, walls, ceilings, and flooring.

SERVPRO provides flood damage mitigation and repairs to Somerset homes. Once the storm has passed, our team can install tarps on the roof to protect the attic. We also install plywood over broken windows to prevent rain and animals from entering your house. These plywood panels remain in place until the windows are replaced.

Roof punctures can allow a great deal of water into the attic, soaking the insulation and penetrating the ceiling into the living areas of your home. Water can drip through the ceiling inside walls and spread out over the floor, damaging flooring materials. SERVPRO can mitigate the water damage by immediately removing wet insulation, vacuuming excess water, and using large fans and dehumidifiers to dry all areas, including inside walls.

Our services include:

  • Water damage remediation
  • Water damage restoration and repairs
  • Repairs to leaking roofs after a storm

Need Ceiling Repairs from Burst Pipes in New Brunswick – Call SERVPRO

It is not uncommon for pipes in the ceiling to spring a leak in a New Brunswick home, causing damage to the ceiling and the contents below. Many residents may not even notice a leak until they see bulging panels full of water, or worse, the panels and water have all crashed to the floor. This creates a huge mess, potentially damaging the flooring materials and the room's contents from the water and moisture.

SERVPRO provides water cleanup services to residents of New Brunswick. Leaky pipes inside a ceiling can be tricky, especially if the ceiling has not succumbed to the weight of the water. In situations like this, SERVPRO drills tiny holes in the panels to drain the water to avoid the entire structure crashing down on the floor, causing even more damage. Once the water has drained out, we can remove portions of the panels to dry all areas.

If the ceiling has already caved in, we use extractors to remove moisture from flooring materials after removing the debris from the ceiling. All of your contents are cleaned and dried. They are stored in a staging area until the room is fully restored. We use air movers and dehumidifiers to remove the remainder of the moisture. We can also help with repairs. SERVPRO also holds a general contractor license - 13VH06622700.

Our services include:

  • Water clean up
  • Water removal services caused by burst pipes
  • Ceiling repairs from water damage

Can SERVPRO Help with House Fire Clean-Up in Somerset?

Everyone loves a fireplace on a cold winter night in Somerset to heat the house and provide a great ambiance for residents as they watch TV. Well-maintained fireplaces offer many hours of enjoyment; however, fireplaces that are not well maintained can cause a great deal of smoke damage. Technically a chimney fire is not a fire in your home. However, smoke can billow out of the fireplace due to a plugged chimney, or even a chimney fire can quickly circulate through the entire house.

SERVPRO provides fire damage and smoke odor removal in Somerset residences. If there is a fire in the chimney, the firemen can quickly douse the fire and check that there is no damage in the attic near the vent from the intense fire. Chimneys can also become blocked with birds or squirrel nests if there is not a proper cap at the top of the chimney. This blockage causes smoke and soot to back up into the home.

We can help with repairs caused by any fire damage, clean all of your contents and remove the smoke odors throughout your home. Our services include:
