Even minor storm damage can open up a Closter property to more extensive structural damage. For example, given, a small leak in a roof can allow water into the attic that drops through a ceiling and causes a sagging ceiling and damaged walls. 

SERVPRO has decades of experience handling flood damage in Closter properties. An inch of water may not look like much in a home, as it does not even cover a baseboard along a wall. However, a mere inch of floodwater can result in thousands of dollars in damages to a home as it migrates under flooring and wicks into walls. 

Frequently seen damages that homeowners see are:

  • Ruined building materials
  • Articles in the home that require disposal
  • Need for extraction and drying

Locating the migration path of any water damage is crucial and never more so than when dealing with floodwater. SERVPRO technicians extract the water quickly and then use their moisture detection equipment to determine any areas within the property that need additional attention. The use of infrared cameras assists with this task and allows the techs to peer behind walls and within ceilings without putting holes in these areas. If the display on the camera shows blue, indicating cooler temperatures, the techs mark off that area to dry. Equipment such as the Injectidry System may get used as it is ideal for forcing a large amount of warm, dry air into a small, focused space. The techs limit the number of building materials that need removal due to water damage to save the homeowner from the cost of replacement materials whenever possible.
