Experience and Reliability Are Why SERVPRO Is Hillsborough’s Flood Damage Expert
SERVPRO can give you the breakdown.
Flooding can cause significant damage to your Hillsborough home. Rapid water removal and efficient structural drying are required to get your property back to preloss condition. Overland flooding or sewer backups are common sources of residential water damage, so the company responding must be skilled in water category assessment, containment, and appropriate disposal protocols as well. Our decades of disaster remediation work are why we are ready and able to help with all flood recoveries.
When heavy rains overtax the Hillsborough sanitary system flood damage inside your home can include raw sewage as well as seepage from the wet ground around your foundation. The scenario includes the potential for serious health risks as human waste and landscaping chemicals can both be in the mix of fluids collected in your basement or lower level. Our Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Reconstruction Certification (IICRC)-trained crews identify the flood water as Category 3 or black water. The ability to manage highly-contaminated water emergencies safely is why our team stands out among remediation providers in our region.
Our crew chief assesses the circumstances upon arrival and develops a plan the crew follows immediately. Water deeper than two inches pumps out, and wanded, truck-mounted extractors remove the remainder of visible fluids. Employees use thermal imaging to trace the path of any migration of the flood waters into building cavities. Limited demolition strategies like flood cuts or drilled holes release that water for containment and proper disposal. We measure moisture levels throughout the affected space as a baseline for drying goals. The skill our highly-qualified technicians bring when employing innovative and sensitive technology is another reason why SERVPRO delivers superior remediation results.
Our crews clean and disinfect the flood-damaged space, using EPA-registered antimicrobial products to inhibit mold growth and minimize the presence of any lingering pathogens. Powerful air movers, heaters, and dehumidifiers dry out the cleaned and sanitized area. The positioning of the equipment and continual monitoring of moisture levels depend on our crew understanding the science of structural drying, which is why SERVPRO sends crews, including certified Applied Structural Drying (ASD) technicians.
Training in remediation industry best practices and investment in state-of-the-art equipment are why SERVPRO of West Somerset County meets all your flood damage needs. Call us at (732) 805-9944 when the water rises for a fast and professional response.
