Removing Excess Water from your Closter Home on Your Own May Leave you at Risk for Aggravated Water Damage. Call a Professional Restoration Service for a Thorough Cleanup Process

You may look at the damage left behind by a leaky pipe in your home and think that water extraction is a simple process. As you prepare to mop your floors and open all your windows to accelerate evaporation, take a minute to consider the risks of leaving water hiding beneath your floors or within your walls. The longer your Closter home is exposed to water, the higher the chance that its foundation and structural elements weaken due to excessive moisture.

Thankfully, our Closter neighbors facing water damage can call our SERVPRO team around the clock for help. As we arrive at your home, we assess the damage by inspecting your home and using state-of-the-art technology to monitor humidity levels, thus detecting any accumulation hiding from the naked eye. If needed, we rapidly establish a staging area where we can protect your belongings and avoid cross-contamination. In the meantime, we also discard any items damaged beyond recovery and begin to extract water with our industrial-grade equipment.

What does SERVPRO do differently in terms of water removal?
Our water restoration technicians' training is certified by the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration (IICRC), which validates our knowledge base of all matters about the treatment of water damage. We particularly understand the perils of leaving moisture behind, as it can damage your property and create a suitable environment for bacteria, such as mold, to prosper. As we use our pumps equivalent to the volume of water we need to extract, we consistently monitor the environment to optimize our efforts. The following equipment helps record these observations and guide our next steps:

    •    Moisture sensors to detect humidity in carpets, upholstery, and other porous surfaces
    •    Moisture meters are similar to sensors, but they allow us to probe behind walls and baseboards for a more thorough assessment
    •    Flexible cameras enable us to review hard to reach places without having to create further damage in gaining access
