Water damage is a serious concern for residential properties and can cause severe damage if it is not addressed quickly. There are plenty of things that can cause water damage within one’s home, such as leaking pipes, roof leaks, or flooding just to name a few. It can cause structural damage and lead to mold growth which can cause health issues for those in the affected area. It is important to take swift action to mitigate the damage brought on by water damage in order to prevent further issues from occurring.

When a water damage situation presents itself, the first thing one should do is turn off the water and/or have it fixed by a plumber to prevent further damage. This will stop any additional water from causing the problem to get worse. Once you are able to control the situation assess the areas of your home that have been affected, once this is done call a restoration professional like SERVPRO of Northeast Bergen County. Our team has the experience and the equipment to handle water damage effectively to mitigate your water loss and potentially prevent further damage from occurring to your property.

A team of technicians will get to work as soon as they are on the job site. They will begin to remove any standing water in any of the affected areas. Technicians will use mitigation equipment such as special pumps and/or vacuums to extract the water from the property. They will then perform demolition/disposal of non-salvageable materials if necessary. Once that is done the drying process can begin. We will begin to set up dehumidifiers and air movers to dry out the areas affected by the water damage. When everything is dried depending on the classification of the water loss, we would then sanitize and disinfect the affected areas.
