Flood waters by home Flooding is no match for SERVPRO. We are equipped and ready at a moment's notice to restore your home.

Cresskill Homeowners Can Rely on SERVPRO for Fast and Efficient Flood Damage Restoration 

Floodwater accumulating on your property after a storm can be heavily contaminated and must be promptly removed to avoid any secondary damage. SERVPRO technicians are prepared, experienced, and capable of handling any size of flood damage to your Cresskill home.  

The course of action that SERVPRO restorers take after flood damage to your Cresskill home depends on the severity of the contamination in the accumulated water. In most flooding situations, the water is often heavily contaminated, and the SERVPRO professionals need to evacuate the occupants. The technicians that work on the site use protective gear, including a full-face respirator with HEPA filters and a full bodysuit. The next step in flood restoration is to establish containment zones with negative air pressure to limit the spread of the contaminants to the unaffected areas of the building. 

How do SERVPRO Techs Extract Water and Remove Bulk Material During Flood Restoration of Your Cresskill Home? 

Apart from water, SERVPRO techs often need to remove solid waste, debris, and silt from your flooded Cresskill home. The restorers use various equipment, from rakes and shovels to high-capacity trash pumps for this purpose. 

It might be necessary to treat the contaminated water with a disinfectant before pumping it out in some situations. Removing water from basements and crawl spaces can be quite tricky, especially after long exposure to floods. The soil adjacent to the walls and foundations can become saturated with water causing structural integrity issues. SERVPRO techs often extract water from such places in batches to monitor the effect of the water on mortar joints or signs of structural failures in the wall.
