Our Professionals Are Ready To Remove Your Cresskill Home Flood Damage
Why SERVPRO Makes the Difference After Flood Damage in Cresskill
Tenakill Brook can overflow its banks or persistent, and torrential rains can saturate the ground surrounding your Cresskill home. Storm water flows into streets because of overtaxed sewage systems and poorly maintained gutter and downspouts configurations dump water near your foundation. Flooding is a problem because of these and other causes, and your need for immediate relief is why SERVPRO has crews available 24/7.
Category 3 Water Needs Specialized Handling
Although rainwater starts as clean, Category 1 water, overland flood damage in Cresskill transforms it to Category 3. It is impossible to tell what contaminants the fluids pick up as they move across the ground and combined with other sources, eventually seep into your house. Keeping your family safe from pathogens and building materials free from corrosive chemicals is why our team contains and disposes of floodwaters as hazardous waste. Homeowners cannot keep current with local regulations, but we make it our business to do so.
What Happened to Categorization by Color?
Sometimes customers ask why SERVPRO does not consistently use the traditional three-color categorization after a water loss. Clean, Gray, and Black waters are the equivalents to Categories 1, 2, and 3. The number system emphasizes the type of contaminants rather than the look of the water. Dangerously contaminated water does not always look black. We strive for accuracy when assessing water contamination for your family’s health and safety.
Personal Protective Equipment and Contamination Training Required
If you are used to managing household emergencies on your own, involving our professional crews might seem like an overreaction. Quite to the contrary, failing to appreciate the hazards of human and animal waste, chemicals, and fungi or other pathogens can put you in harm's way. Viruses and bacteria can make people sick. Chemicals can create an indoor environment that can cause irritation and allergic reactions in people and pets. The reactions chemicals can have with building materials can weaken and destabilize your structure, why SERVPRO expertise is needed after flood damage strikes.
