Claim Approval for Somerset Shops After Flood Damage

What Does Your Insurance Need After Flood Damage?

Working with the insurance provider after a disaster can be stressful, as many customers do not know what to expect or what the company needs to approve a damage claim. As a trusted restoration vendor, SERVPRO can help.

Cataloging the Structure Condition

While your insurance company is sure to entrust damage documentation and reporting of flood damage in Somerset shops to an adjuster, SERVPRO is also a trusted name to conduct needed inspections and reports. We work directly with the policy providers to meet their demands after disasters to ensure we can quickly start mitigation and restoration services.

Documenting the Loss

Another type of documentation needed after a flood loss is the impact of this contaminated water on various materials and contents. We carefully note these losses based on a thorough inspection of the shop and its connected rooms. The more detailed these assessments can be, the more quickly restoration and recovery steps can begin for:

  • Documents
  • Electronics
  • Wares
  • Contents
  • Furniture

What Restoration is Needed?

To meet the demands of an insurance provider and get the damage claim approved to begin cleanup and restoration, SERVPRO must create a custom recovery plan. When the insurance company understands what our experts deem necessary to restore the shop and the expected timeline for completing this work, they can more confidently approve damage claim mitigation and cleaning.

The Importance of a Detailed Estimate

Estimations are projections made by experienced professionals like our production managers about expected costs for the restoration work to come. It is necessary to fully evaluate any needed actions, products, and specialty recovery services as these ultimately impact the final expense to the customer or their insurance provider.

Estimations and insurance approval are essential to restoring and recovering your shop after flood damage. Intruding water is traumatic and destructive, especially to the wares and inventory of your boutique. The fast response of our SERVPRO of Southeast Somerset County team can help when you call (908) 490-6462.

Start to Finish Commercial Water Damage Restoration in Somerset

Managing a multi-family condominium, townhouse, or apartment building provides plenty of challenges in Somerset. When one unit experiences an issue like a plumbing leak or overflowing sink or tub, other residents in the complex are also affected. The water incursion needs attention wherever the moisture migrates, including complicated situations where residents above, below, or next to the leak or overflow see similar damage.

Migration Pathways Identified

Our team of Somerset water damage recovery professionals trains extensively concerning the expected movement of water under a wide range of circumstances. General rules like “wet goes to dry” are a good start, but we also take advantage of tools like thermal imaging, moisture detectors, and moisture meters to map the pattern of water seepage from home to home within your building. Although we cannot help with the frustration neighbors might feel when dealing with the unexpected results of negligence or simple bad luck of the folks in an adjoining unit, we can plan for a fast and effective restoration.

Thorough Extraction Is Job One

Research confirms that removing liquid water is about 1200 times more efficient than drying alone to return moisture levels to normal levels. SERVPRO crews pursue aggressive extraction, using a variety of strategies to access water trapped in building cavities between units. Removing baseboards and cutting access holes is useful, permitting us to use systems like Injectidry to suction fluid out with negative pressure. We might also punch through drooping ceiling tiles, bulging wallpaper, or bubbling paint to release trapped water, using portable extractors to get into even tight spaces.

Cleaning and Disinfection Before Drying

The affected surfaces need deep cleaning and disinfection with EPA-registered products. SERVPRO brings all needed cleaners and antimicrobials along with water removal and drying equipment and technicians in familiar green service vehicles. We use the moisture data collected during water migration assessment to set drying goals. To create the balance among airflow, temperature, and reduction in humidity needed to dry out wet building materials, we roll out air movers, heaters, and dehumidifiers.  

Rebuilding options offered by the construction division SERVPRO of Southeast Somerset County finish your journey back to full business operation after multi-family residential water damage. For wrap-around restoration, call us at (908) 402-0297.

Main Obstacles to Reopening Somerset Offices After a Fire

1/21/2022 (Permalink)

a fire damaged space with soot covering the rails of the stairs When your office is facing fire damage, time is of the essence. Tackle the situation with a quick call to SERVPRO. We are standing by 24/7.

Mitigative actions in Somerset office buildings overcome significant hurdles in resuming operation after a fire.

Offices and commercial structures operate safe environments for their employees and customers. When disasters like fire losses impact these facilities, it is up to experienced restoration professionals like our SERVPRO team to manage the pressing concerns and mitigate damages as thoroughly as possible. Our roster of technicians is available 24/7 to help with various post-fire cleanup needs.

Soot and Smoke Debris 

To manage fire damage in Somerset offices, one of the first obstacles that must be overcome is soot and smoke debris. Not only can certain types of soot damage be carcinogenic and health-hazardous, soils prevent the proper operation of the building and its equipment until the residues and smoke damage get resolved. Some of the removal techniques for soot include:

  • Wet cleaning
  • Dry cleaning 
  • Controlled demolition

Content and Structure Damage

Furniture, equipment, and fixtures can all be compromised by the presence of smoke and fire damage. Through efforts like content relocation and structural repairs, we can provide the needed attention for the building to get you up and running again. 

Water Damage and Pooling

Water suppression to quell the spreading blaze during the disaster can also leave behind wet areas for professionals to contend with during restoration. Initially, pooling can be addressed with light wands, squeegee wands, and wet vacuums. 

Harsh Malodors Lingering

Combustion aerosolizes solids and particles, which can contribute to severe malodors present around the office. Even with much of the soot and residues cleaned up, deodorization requires specific tools and products in our inventory to neutralize offensive smells attributed to the fire disaster.

There are multiple obstacles preventing businesses from staying open after a structure fire. Our experienced SERVPRO of Southeast Somerset County team can help mitigate and restore after disasters. Call today at (908) 259-6603.

Containment in Water-Damaged Somerset Restaurants

1/9/2022 (Permalink)

the dining area of a restaurant Make sure that your restaurant patrons don’t find a new bistro for their celebrations. Call SERVPRO right away for commercial water removal efforts.

Containment strategies allow Somerset businesses to continue some operations during the restoration process.

Restaurants and other service industries are at a considerable loss when contending with disasters that shut the doors of the building temporarily. The ideal situations allow these facilities to remain open and operational, even in a limited capacity, to ensure that customer service lapses do not occur. We have credible solutions to mitigate damage from several sources like:

  • Burst pipes
  • Broken fixtures
  • Damaged sprinkler systems
  • Flooding

Managing Standing Water Concerns

Among the first steps in water removal for Somerset businesses, especially restaurants and structures of the food industry, is removing any standing water. The best method of achieving this result is with a combination of vacuums and pumps. Vacuums provide the most versatile approach to removing standing water across multiple surfaces like hardwood, tile, carpeting, and concrete.

Establishing Physical Barriers 

One of the best ways to preserve unaffected areas of the restaurant or cafe from additional damage is to establish barriers that prevent the migration of standing water, moisture, and other threats. Reducing cross-contamination is another considerable aspect of establishing firm perimeters of the workspace. Plastic sheeting and sealing over air pathways allow for a focused drying and cleanup of the damaged zones.

Reducing the Impact on the Building

When water is not stopped and quelled from freely moving, greater surface areas of the restaurant must be shut down to foot traffic and service. Swift action with containment and mitigation makes it possible to partially operate while work continues, but only if these emergency services happen right away. 

Protecting your employees, customers, and facilities after substantial water damage incidents begins with effective and efficient mitigation solutions. Our SERVPRO of Southeast Somerset County team has leading extraction and drying equipment to help as soon as you call (908) 259-6603.

SERVPRO helps Somerset business owners get back on track

Somerset, which gets its name from the county of Somerset in England, is a charming community of just 22,083 people. Somerset has an impressive claim to fame, though: It was home to one of the first Marconi Wireless Stations in the United States. Engineers completed the New Brunswick Marconi Station in 1914, but in 1917 the United States Government confiscated it. The station became the primary radio link between the United States and the United Kingdom, and operators used it to transmit Woodrow Wilson's Fourteen Point Speech in 1918.

Visit the historic homes of Somerset

The Marconi Station is not the only historically exciting thing in Somerset! When you visit, be sure to check out these nearby sites:

  • The Abraham Staats House used to be General Baron von Steuben's headquarters, and local lore says George Washington visited it twice. The house has an authentic Dutch section from 1740, including Dutch hinges, woodwork, and beams. The building was once a tiny two-room structure and is now one of the best-preserved examples of Dutch architecture in the area. Viewings are by appointment.
  • The Jacobus Vanderveer House and Museum was General Henry Knox's headquarters during the Revolutionary War. It was also the home of the first Military Training Academy in the United States. The house offers an authentic look at Dutch colonial life and hosts regular re-enactments and educational events throughout the year. 
  • The Millstone Valley National Scenic Byway lets you step back into the canal era, with towpaths, quaint villages, and historic sites, including the newly opened Bridgetender's House Visitor Center. You can quickly drive the Byway in about an hour, but we recommend blocking out more time so you can explore the wealth of villages along the way. TheBywayy also offers opportunities for walking, cycling, fishing, and horseback riding.

Enjoy the freshest local produce

If you are hungry after exploring the homes and byways of Somerset, be sure to stop off at once of the local farmer's markets. Humans have been farming this area for hundreds of years, and there is still a strong tradition of enjoying local food. Many growers are embracing sustainable agricultural practices, and the site is getting increasingly popular with green tourists.

There are lots of lovely farmers' markets in the area, and they are the best way to enjoy local produce fresh from the field. Why not visit one of these popular gatherings:

  • Bound Brook Farmers Market is well known for offering lots of local crafts and delicious food.
  • Bedminster Farmer's Market offers everything from locally raised beef to handmade soaps, lotions, and much more.
  • Bridgewater Farmers Market has a great selection of fruit, veg, and cheese, along with jewelry, face painting, and live music to entertain you.

Can you protect your business from water damage?

Water can damage the structure of your building, ruin décor, and put your business at risk of fungal growth. There are some things you can do to help prevent water damage:

Look for signs of mold, as this can be a sign of water damage.

Check bathrooms and kitchens for leaking faucets or pooling water.

Keep the roof, doors, and windows in good repair.

If you notice flood damage, call SERVPRO at once. Our trained technicians are waiting to help you get back in business. We take care of every aspect of water damage remediation, from assessment to drying, cleaning, and deodorizing.

How Difficult Is It To Clean Up After A Fire Incident At A Somerset Hotel?

SERVPRO Manages Fire Damage Cleanup in Somerset Based On the Specifics of Each Incident

You need to take various actions in the aftermath of a fire incident. Cleaning up soiled surfaces and materials is one of the essential steps for recovery. The level of intricacy varies depending on the specifics of the incident. SERVPRO helps ease the burden of cleanup for Somerset business owners by providing expertise and advanced equipment to tackle the job.

Which typical factors determine the difficulty of fire damage cleanup exercises in Somerset hotels?
    •    The type of fire involved
    •    The intensity of the fire
    •    The period it burns

The damage caused by fires is not uniform since many factors influence the outcome. The fires in Somerset also differ depending on the materials they burn or the type of accelerant fueling the flames. The common types of fires include those involving:
    •    Ordinary combustibles
    •    Flammable liquid and gas
    •    Electrical
    •    Metal
    •    Cooking oils and fats

How does the intensity of fire affect the cleaning process?
A smoldering fire might not consume many materials in a house. However, such fires tend to produce thick or wet smoke residues, soiling materials heavily. Removing such residues requires significant agitation and the use of potent cleaning agents.

Intense fires tend to consume most of the materials while the residues left tend to involve ash and dry soot residues and thus easier to remove. However, timely firefighting efforts can lead to different outcomes. For instance, when the dry soot mixes with water, it can soil beddings and upholstery items heavily. Our SERVPRO technicians use cleaning agents made uniquely for cleaning fire residues to avoid setting the soils. We also have state of the art immersion cleaning equipment such as ultrasonic cleaners.

SERVPRO of Southeast Somerset County is equipped to handle the cleanup after any fire incident, “Like it never even happened.” Call us at (908) 251-9097.

Immediate Water Mitigation is Needed at Your Somerset Inn to Prevent Permanent and Secondary Damage

Somerset is a beautiful place to visit. As an inn owner, you understand the importance of keeping those visitors happy. When you experience water damage, it can shut down your business, leaving you and your guests unhappy. That can lead to bad reviews and permanent loss of repeat customers.

The Problem is in the Basement – Can’t it Wait a Day or Two?

If you have a water instruction, even in the basement, you need water removal in your Somerset inn fast. Typically your guests would not be in your basement, but standing water can cause serious problems. The water gets slowly absorbed by any porous material, including drywall, wood, and insulation. Flooring and stored content can be impacted, as well. This can lead to structural degradation and material deterioration. Mold can begin forming within 24 hours and can cause health effects. Our SERVPRO team can be there within hours and begin extracting the water from the basement. Our pumps are powerful, and we have several options depending on the extent of the flooding. This includes truck-mounted, portable, and submersible pumps.

How Fast Can You Dry My Inn?

We understand you want your business back to normal as quickly as possible. You can rest assured our professional technicians understand the need for expediency. They provide the drying methods that best suit your particular situation. There are basic drying methods and equipment that apply to any water-damaged building. These include using:

  • Air movers
  • Industrial fans

  • Moisture sensors
  • Chemical drying agents 

We understand your need for fast water removal. We are available around the clock and can work with your schedule to provide the required water mitigation. Your guests count on you to take care of them. You can count on us to take care of you. Contact SERVPRO of Southeast Somerset County at (908) 251 - 9097 for quality water removal service.

Regardless of the size of a water loss incident in your Somerset office building, there are many distinct reasons why many would choose to have the damage professionally restored. Our SERVPRO professionals are available 24/7 to help with any water emergencies that could impact your property. This response can prevent the situation from getting out of control and damaging many of the structural elements and fixtures that could become exposed in the kitchen area of your office building.

Water cleanup for your Somerset structure requires multiple tasks to occur. We have qualified cleaning technicians available to help oversee the restoration of your property from the initial job scoping and mitigation phases through the final cleaning touches for the structure after the restoration completes. As with any loss incident, our professionals must first determine the extent of the damage and what actions must get taken to return the property to preloss condition. Even with seemingly smaller loss conditions, the actual impact could be worse than the surface might indicate.

How Bad is the Damage?

We understand how valuable time is for your company and its staff. We do not waste our efforts offering services that your property does not need. We can determine what is necessary quickly through a job scoping phase. Our project manager can determine the extent of the water damage and its path of migration during this initial evaluation of your property. By tracking moisture from the source, we can identify moisture pockets and damp areas that must get addressed with thorough drying practices to come. Several of the sophisticated tools that we use to identify these moisture pockets and track the movement of water beyond the surface include:

    •    Moisture Detection Tools
    •    Thermal Imagery
    •    Thorough Visual Inspection

Does SERVPRO Do Repairs?

One of our team's ways of separating from others in the area is through a comprehensive restoration and recovery solution that we can offer local businesses. With a team of in-house contractors to help with both residential and commercial properties in need, we can ensure that the right repairs and reconstruction occurs at the appropriate times. The mitigation phase can be the proper point for damaged fixtures to get repaired so that pipes can get pressurized again with water.

These are all steps that help your office get back to normal. Our contractors can help through various phases of the recovery of your office kitchen and its surrounding areas. Mitigation can see the repair of plumbing and controlled demolition when necessary, while later stages of restoration in the building might require these discarded materials to get replaced. Initially, upon discovering the source of water damage, our contractors can fix:

    •    Plumbing
    •    Fixtures
    •    Valves

What Tools Are Best for Efficient Water Removal?

Not every loss situation requires us to pull out the most powerful and efficient tools in our inventory. In some cases, extraction tools are not necessary at all. With small leaks that can begin to spread through the kitchen and break areas of your office building, it is possible to sop up water on the surface to prevent penetration and saturation of exposed materials. Removing this mild volume of water from the surface of damaged materials in these areas most often requires conventional cleaning and restoration tools that many property owners are already familiar with, including:

    •    Mops
    •    Towels
    •    Wet Vacuums

How Do I Efficiently Dry the Room?

The drying of this space requires several tools in our inventory working together. Efficiency is vital in this regard, as drying can often be one of the most prolonged phases of restoration after a water loss. With the right information regarding where moisture pockets exist, we can utilize tools like air movers and dehumidifiers to gain control of these conditions. If drying must occur within structural cavities, we have specialty tools such as are positive pressure systems that can inject dry air into these openings to increase evaporative processes.

Not every loss situation requires the full extent of our restoration team and equipment, but can still benefit from the experience and fast response of competent professionals. We can track water damage beyond the surface to ensure that the drying process is thorough and avoid more hazardous conditions such as mold growth.

Bring in SERVPRO to Professionally Restore Your New Brunswick Business in a Safe, Swift Manner

In New Brunswick businesses, even a small fire, quickly extinguished, often causes closure of at least several days. For a restaurant like a pizzeria, this can take even longer to meet the city and state health requirements for cleaning and restoration. 

Why do cleaning and restoration take so long?

Every fire generates a large amount of smoke and soot particles. The fire damage to New Brunswick Businesses can be very detrimental to the ebb and flow of money in the area. The amount and type of them depend on how hot the fire burned and what was consumed. Our Fire & Smoke Restoration Technicians train extensively to clean every affected surface of physical debris and soot particles and deodorize the entire structure of the malodors left behind by burned material.

What about the water from the sprinklers?

Our teams also have Water Restoration Technicians that can draw out the water and quickly dry the kitchen, customer seating, and bathrooms. Depending on the square footage and water level, they can clear most businesses in less than a week.
