This Area in Your Hillsborough Home Gets Hit Hardest from Flood Damage

Flood damage is one of the most stressful and severe events a homeowner can face. The loss adds up quickly, and in cases of groundwater, even a small amount has the potential to leave behind catastrophic damage. 

When a Hillsborough home has flood damage, first and foremost, the cleanup needs to begin as soon as possible. SERVPRO technicians advise homeowners to avoid contact with groundwater and only stay on-site if it is safe to do so. 

Why SERVPRO?

The technicians have extensive experience handling all types of water loss, including groundwater, which carries a rating as a category three biohazard. They have the safety and professional extraction equipment to manage the water removal cautiously and efficiently. 

Tracking Floodwater

Using their state-of-the-art moisture detection equipment, SERVPRO technicians identify all areas of excessive moisture and extract as needed. 

Controlled Demolition is Common

Depending on the type of flooring, it may be a loss. Carpet and padding saturated by groundwater have no restoration potential and require removal and disposal. Tile and other hard floorings might respond to disinfection and cleaning if the subflooring remained dry. 

The clean cuts on sheetrock often seen in flood loss properties (aka "flood cuts") performs the dual function of allowing greater airflow during the drying phase of mitigation as well as halting any further water wicking into the sheetrock. 

Make Ready for Reconstruction

There are several considerations to handle before a flood loss property is ready for rebuilding. SERVPRO technicians ensure that the residence has no danger for mold infestation, no foul odors, and is completely dry. 

Lessen Stress for Rebuilding 

Through their general contractor license#13VH05228000, SERVPRO offers homeowners the ability to get any needed repairs or reconstruction handled after the restoration services complete. This service takes the anxiety out of finding and vetting a contractor for any rebuilding required. 

At the first sign of flood damage, contact SERVPRO of West Somerset County at (732) 805-9944. The technicians have the training and equipment to make the water loss in your home, "Like it never even happened."
