Sprinkler Malfunction? Call SERVPRO

6/15/2021 (Permalink)

Automatic fire sprinkler systems are effective ways to extinguish a fire, but they can also pose a risk of water damage.

When activated, quick-response sprinklers will release 8-24 gallons of water per minute. In 20 minutes, they can dump hundreds of gallons if the water isn’t shut off. It’s no wonder the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) respond to over thousands of unintentional sprinkler activations each year.

SERVPRO responds to many water damage emergencies throughout the year in the Aberdeen and Holmdel areas. Our water restoration technicians have the specialized equipment and advanced training necessary to mitigate water damage quickly, no matter how big the job is.

We follow the one-four-eight rule:

We make the first contact within one hour of your call.

We arrive onsite in four hours or less.

We contact your insurance adjuster within eight hours.

When your home or commercial business has water damage, SERVPRO of Aberdeen/Holmdel is ready to respond 24 hours a day.

Call us today at (732) 290-3170, and it will be “Like it never even happened.”

Avoid the High Cost of Water Damage

6/15/2021 (Permalink)

The Insurance Journal recently reported that aside from weather events, burst and leaking pipes are the most common causes of water damage. And unfortunately, water damage is also the second-most expensive type of repair, right behind fire damage. 

When you’re dealing with the aftermath of a water emergency, SERVPRO can help prevent further damage that can lead to costly repairs and health threats.

SERVPRO Can Mitigate the Damage

A leak, overflowing bathtub, sink, or clogged toilet might seem more like an inconvenience rather than a dangerous threat. But water can do a lot of damage, especially when it’s the result of a long-time plumbing problem. Prolonged contact with water, even small amounts at a time, has a serious impact on floors, carpets, walls, and furniture.

Water damage can lead to:

  • Fire and electrocution, when water comes in contact with electrical sources
  • Mold and mildew, even on hard surfaces like masonry
  • Rotted wood that may compromise a building's structural integrity
  • Stains
  • Spread of bacteria and pathogens from contaminated sources such as sewers
  • Odors from mold, mildew, and bacteria

All of these issues are more costly to repair or remove than simply fixing leaks and persistent overflowing. To prevent mold, rot, and other problems from developing, water damage, of any degree, should be addressed within the first 24 to 48 hours.

The team at SERVPRO of Aberdeen/Holmdel is always ready to assist, regardless of the size of the water spill. Whether you need a simple inspection or complete demolition service, we have the expertise and knowledge to prevent further damage.

What Happens When a Structure isn’t Properly Dried Out?

4/19/2021 (Permalink)

We’ll immediately send out a trained professional to perform an inspection and mold damage assessment, checking for moisture and check the humidity. From there, our teams follow industry-standard protocols to rid your home of mold and bring the levels back to normal, including:

  • Mold Containment

What are the Key Factors for Drying a Home?

3/18/2021 (Permalink)

When water collects in your home from a burst pipe, poor drainage, or weather-related incidents, immediate water mitigation is essential. A team of water removal specialists must arrive as quickly as possible to prevent the water from affecting other areas and causing more damage

The experts at SERVPRO of Aberdeen/Holmdel know that when it comes to water extraction, the drying time is key. Here are four factors that impact how long it takes to dry the building and contents inside.

4 Factors that Impact Drying Time in a Water Emergency

  1. Temperature
    Hot air contains more moisture than cold, so 70°- 90° is the ideal range for drying. If heat isn't available, SERVPRO technicians can use portable heaters. They'll also ensure the drying process doesn't release too much moisture in the air by using dehumidifiers.
  2. Air Movement
    Rooms with water damage are often damp and humid. Experts will use industrial-strength air mover to blow warm, dry air in and to blast the moist air out. -
  3. Humidity
    The measure of air moisture at a given temperature is known as relative humidity (RH). If the RH is over 60%, drying time will be slower because of the air's saturation. SERVPRO techs use dehumidifiers with air movers to lower the RH to for optimum drying power.
  4. Water Requiring Evaporation
    Physically extracting as much water as possible at the scene is much more effective than using dehumidifiers. SERVPRO extracts water with submersible pumps, truck-mounted pumps that can extract 36,000 gallons per day, portable pumps, rovers for carpets, and squeegees for hard surfaces.

Call SERVPRO to Dry Your Home in the Right Amount of Time

Successful drying involves the right humidity levels, temperature, water extraction, and air movement. All of these things differ, depending on the circumstances of the water damage. You can count on SERVPRO for the fastest extraction and drying solutions for your Aberdeen or Holmdel property.

How Quickly Should Homeowners Begin Water Mitigation?

2/3/2021 (Permalink)

If you're dealing with flooding, spills or leaks in your Aberdeen or Holmdel home, you should not delay restoration. The longer you wait, the worse the situation can get, leading to expensive repair bills and potential health dangers.

With SERVPRO's water mitigation tactics, you have peace of mind knowing your home is in expert hands — no matter how serious the water incident is.

What Happens if You Delay Water Damage Restoration?

Deterioration starts within minutes of a water incident, and continues over the hours, days and weeks that follow. Problems that can occur within hours include:

  • Carpet or floor stains caused by leaching of furniture in saturated areas
  • Discoloration of furniture finishes
  • Running of dyes in fabrics or upholstery
  • Swelling of wood furniture and installations
  • Delamination of carpets
  • Household odors amplified by humidity

Most of these issues wind up becoming permanent property losses that often could've been prevented with professional assistance.

SERVPRO Technicians Find Ways to Prevent a Water-Loss Incident

It's difficult to instantly respond to a water-loss incident, but the sooner you reach out, the less damage your property will incur. Once we arrive, our team can eliminate odors immediately with water-based deodorizers and cleaning solutions. Our advanced moisture-control tactics can also reverse swelling in wood and prevent cracking.

How Professionals Clean After a Water Heater Leak

11/23/2020 (Permalink)

One of the most problematic sources of water damage in New Jersey is a leaking water heater. Whether it’s caused by age or environmental factors, the leak can risk damage to your home and valuables. Once you've stopped the flow of water, the cleanup begins. 

Cleaning Tips for a Water Leak

Be sure to take safety precautions when beginning any cleanup procedure involving a broken water heater.

  • Wear proper safety gear, like gloves and masks, when dealing with water in the home
  • Make sure electronics and appliances in the wet area are unplugged
  • Transfer rugs and movable items to a dry area
  • Dry the floor a mop, towels, or a shop-vac
  • Reduce moisture in the air with a dehumidifier, or open windows and run fans
  • Rinse wet items with clean water
  • Dry items indoors as the sun and outdoor heat may be too intense 

Investigating, repairing, and mitigating the damage caused by a leaking water heater should include thorough cleaning and drying, which a qualified professional service would be well-equipped to manage. 

When in Doubt, Contact SERVPRO, a Water Damage Restoration Company 

The team at SERVPRO of Aberdeen/Holmdel know how to inspect, repair, and restore damage caused by water in the home. We have the equipment and training to make the process easier for you.

Top 5 Causes of Emergency Water Cleanup

6/17/2020 (Permalink)

With years of being one of the best water damage cleanup companies, SERVPRO of Aberdeen/Holmdel has seen our share of water issues. No two restoration projects are exactly the same, but some are more common than others.

Take a look at the top five causes of water issues in the central Jersey area. By knowing the most common triggers, you will know where your home’s weaknesses might be and possibly prevent a costly emergency water cleanup.

  1. Dishwasher

Your dishwasher can cause water damage if not properly sealed, the latch is broken, or it was loaded with the wrong soap. Make sure any leaks are immediately addressed and your dishwasher is repaired or replaced ASAP.

  1. Washing Machine

The same goes for your washing machine. Perform regular checks, inspecting beneath the unit as well as behind it. Make sure all fittings are securely connected, and there are no leaks underneath. If you have an older washing machine that gives you frequent issues, consider replacing it with a more efficient model.

  1. Air Conditioner

Your A/C removes moisture from the air and that moisture can build up within the unit itself. If not properly drained, that water could be slowly leaking into your home potentially ruining the flooring and drywall and, in many cases, introducing mold, which is always an emergency water cleanup situation.

  1. Leaking Pipes

If you notice water pooling in the kitchen or bathroom, you may be dealing with a loose-fitting pipe under sink. Don’t wait to call a plumber. One leak can be a sign of other leaks in the home, too.

  1. Clogged Drains

Clogged drains aren’t just annoying—they also cause water damage (and mold growth) if left unchecked. A clogged toilet can cause water to back up into the shower, sinks, or bathroom floor. Sewer water is extremely dangerous because it contains raw sewage and bacteria, requiring help from water damage cleanup companies.

If you are experiencing water issues in your home or business, call SERVPRO of Aberdeen/Holmdel today at (732) 290-3170.

What to Do if Your Toilet Overflows

6/17/2020 (Permalink)

When your toilet overflows, it’s not only frustrating, it can be dangerous. When the overflow involves a sewage backup, viruses, bacteria, and other contaminants can threaten your health.

Here’s what to do the next time you’re in this inconvenient situation. 

Clogged Toilet Solution

 Step 1: Stop Flushing

When the first flush doesn’t work, many people rush to flush again. Unfortunately, this will only make a flooded toilet situation worse. Each flush contains more than a gallon of water that you'll have to clean up off the floor.

Step 2: Turn Off the Water

There should be a water shut-off valve located near the floor behind the toilet. Once the water has been shut off, you won't have to worry about more water making the situation worse.

Step 3: Clean Up Spilled Water

If the toilet was only flushed once or twice, you can probably mop it up pretty quickly. If there were more flushes and the resulting four to five gallons of water are flooding the bathroom, you may want to contact a professional to prevent water damage.

Step 4: Address the Clog

Hopefully, you'll be able to dislodge whatever was stuck in the pipes and return to normal function. If not, it’s best to contact a professional.

Remember to protect your home and family from sewer damage. If you’re having trouble finding a clogged toilet solution, contact SERVPRO of Aberdeen/Holmdel. We’ll get things running smoothly in no time.

Whom Should I Call to Remove Water Damage in My Holmdel Home?

4/23/2020 (Permalink)

standing water in room of home Did your home experience water damage? SERVPRO has the equipment to restore your home.

Holmdel Residents Should Call SERVPRO for Thorough Water Removal Services

Most of us are staying home more than ever before. Enjoying the comforts of the house we live in is a real treat, but it can also strain our utilities. Our power bill may be higher because we are cooking more, and our water bill may increase. Appliances and plumbing could also suffer, and spring a leak when we least expect it. 

Removing water damage from a broken pipe or appliance in Holmdel should not be overwhelming. Our SERVPRO team knows how to handle situations like yours, regardless of the size of the damage. When you call our office for help, we dispatch a knowledgeable team that is ready to tackle your problem before it worsens.

Is a dehumidifier enough to dry my home?

Dehumidifiers certainly have a place in extracting water from your home. Our SERVPRO team often turns to industrial-grade dehumidifiers to assist in evaporating water from your home. However, we know that removing water is not enough to protect you from the threat of bacteria. Microorganisms thrive in moist places, which is why restoring normal humidity levels in your home is essential to the restoration process. Our comprehensive approach counts on some of the following technology to guide results and optimize outcomes:

  • Infrared moisture meters- these provide accurate readings and help us identify areas of concern such as water remaining in wall cavities and behind cabinets.
  • Handheld wand extractors- these allow us to access remote corners and hard to reach places within your home and remove excess humidity in those places.
  • Pumps- depending on the volume of water in your home, we may use a submersible or truck-mounted pumps, which allow us to extract water quickly and in large amounts.

Our business experience prepares us to clean up your home in the best possible way. At SERVPRO of Aberdeen/Holmdel, we strive to mitigate your loss when disaster strikes. Contact us at (732) 290-3170 and let us leave your home, "Like it never even happened."

Water Removal In Your Aberdeen Property

3/21/2020 (Permalink)

water damaged home Correct water restoration requires attention to detail in both primary and secondary phases.

The Two Phases of Water Removal that Aberdeen Residents should know

Large bodies of water can affect a home in several negative ways. The first may be primary damages that can affect structure, stain, or shrink fabrics as well as migrating from the source of moisture outward across the home. Secondary damages may be a concern when water problems persist for longer than seventy hours. These may manifest as microbial growth issues, discoloration, or degradation in water quality. As a homeowner, overcoming water-related damages is challenging without access to the appropriate and expertise.

Many homeowners resort to professional water removal services here in Aberdeen. Professional services can take the stress out of water removal while also providing you with peace of mind regarding secondary damages. Our team here at SERVPRO is adept at dealing with water-related issues in residential properties. Using the correct equipment, as well as applying it in the right manner, is essential to ensure your losses are kept to a minimum. We can also frequently restore possessions to a preloss condition following water loss.

Water mitigation can be split into two distinct categories. The first may be emergency water loss situations. These could include flooding, multi-story damages, or appliance malfunction. Our team at SERVPRO is local, which can reduce callout times and help us to prevent water migration as well as degradation. Emergency services may include shutting off the supply of water at the source, as well as removing larger bodies of water using specialist pumping equipment.

A secondary category may be preventative measures that SERVPRO employ to ensure your property does not suffer unnecessary harm. Preventative measures work with the building materials in your home as well as its psychrometrics to ensure that no secondary damages occur. Thorough dehumidification or air-scrubbing of the affected area may be necessary to avoid high humidity levels causing mold growth or odor. We can also treat the affected area using anti-microbial chemicals and biocides to prevent microbes like fungi, bacteria, or viruses from developing.

Correct water restoration requires attention to detail in both primary and secondary phases. Contact SERVPRO of Aberdeen / Holmdel at (732) 290-3170.

Deciding on Pumping or Extraction for Water Removal in your Aberdeen Home

2/5/2020 (Permalink)

Water on tile floor in kitchen Don't let standing water wreak havoc in your home. Call the experts at SERVPRO. We are always available to help.

SERVPRO Chooses The Appropriate Water Removal Method Your Aberdeen Home Needs

During the length of homeownership, you may face challenges that affect your possessions as well as the infrastructure of the home itself. Wetrooms such as bathrooms or kitchens tend to be vulnerable to water incidents since they have a regular flow of moisture. A weak pipe, joint or fitting can quickly result in large quantities of water entering your property. Homeowners tend to use professional companies to remove these bodies of water because they lack the necessary equipment to perform the job themselves. 

You can contact our Water Removal Specialists here in Aberdeen by contacting us on the phone. Our operators work round-the-clock to ensure that residents of the community can always get the help they need. Generally, high volumes of water in the home need extraction equipment or pumping equipment to transport it from home into a nearby sewer point or storage tank. The factors that SERVPRO consider when deciding on extractors or pumps include how much standing water there is, measuring in inches, as well as the size and distance of the structure itself- a hallway, for example, may benefit from a different method to a living room. 

Extraction is essential to fast-acting restoration. Evaporation is a typically slow process that can be ineffective with large bodies of water. Opening windows immediately when faced with a large body of standing water is a practical step for homeowners to take. Still, it is rarely a decisive action in the overall restoration. Extraction units vary from light wands that can vacuum in water to weighted extraction tools, which can be useful on thicker rugs. In situations where there is an ample space requiring restoration, SERVPRO may use truck-mounts with larger storage tanks of over one hundred gallons. 

If a room is tiled like a kitchen or bathroom, and there is a large amount of standing water, SERVPRO technicians may decide that pumping is more effective than extraction. Depending on the location of the room, we may use electric submersible pumps that are capable of pumping 100 to 18,000 gallons of moisture per hour. Subterranean levels may benefit from high-pressure pumping equipment, which has the requisite power to move water upwards and out of a cellar or basement. 

Practical restoration is available to the community via our twenty-four-hour emergency line. Contact SERVPRO of Aberdeen / Holmdel at (732) 290-3170 now.

Water Extraction and Drying Are SERVPRO Cornerstones of Mitigation Services for Our Hazlet Neighbors

11/25/2019 (Permalink)

Laundry room in a home with several inches of standing floodwater No matter what floor your laundry room is on, SERVPRO technicians have the tools to extract water from your residence.

Fast-Responding Laundry Room Water Removal in Hazlet

A washing machine is an appliance that most homeowners can count on to work as it should most of the time. However, accidents can happen, parts can wear out, and other problems can crop up that can make your home susceptible to water damage. Whether you have a damaged water pump or defective supply valves, it can be challenging to mitigate a sudden influx of water on your own.

If your home requires water removal in Hazlet at any time of the day or night, certified SERVPRO technicians are ready to address the issue. If left unchecked, water damage can create a thriving environment for mold, mildew, and other types of structural problems for your home. SERVPRO uses tried-and-true methods as well as cutting-edge technologies to minimize damage and restore your home.

Common Causes of Washing Machine Leaks

  • A faulty tub seal.The water seal between your machine's outer tub and the transmission that turns it can wear down over time, which can cause leaks under the tub.
  • A broken water pump.The drain hose connected to your water pump is a vulnerable area for holes. Check hose clamps and hose quality to ensure that there are no leaks.
  • Faulty water supply valves.Make sure the valves work before connecting the hot and cold lines.
  • Faulty water supply valves.Make sure the valves work before connecting the hot and cold lines backflow. If the laundry room does not have a utility sink, your machine likely drains into the sewer line via a pipe.

SERVPRO is Here to Help

Whether your laundry room is on the first floor of your home or in the basement, SERVPRO technicians have the tools necessary to extract water from your residence. Flooring materials like concrete and tile are very hardy, but over time, exposure to water can compromise their effectiveness. Without thorough drying, concrete can have chalky surface blooms (efflorescence) that come back periodically. In the case of ceramic tiles, too much water in the grout can create warping and expansion that can crack or otherwise compromise the adhesion of tiles to the floor. If the washing machine is on an upper level of a home, as is now the trend, water seepage presents another set of issues that are SERVPRO techs can identify and treat.

Whatever the case may be, SERVPRO professionals monitor moisture throughout the drying process to ensure that moisture content reaches normal levels for those surfaces to prevent further damage. Dormant mold spores exposed to some moisture can develop into troublesome colonies. In cases where moisture may have affected the subflooring, SERVPRO can set up centrifugal air movers and dehumidifiers to dry from underneath and restore your flooring to a preloss condition.

SERVPRO of Aberdeen / Holmdel can generally ensure that your home is, "Like it never even happened." Call (732) 290-3170 today for an emergency response to your home disaster.

Have a Flooded Basement?

5/1/2019 (Permalink)

Whether you have a finished basement or one that you venture down to, you need to know how to keep your basement dry and safe. A flooded basement can pose many threats including mold, pipe damage, and fire hazards – and the basement can be the prime culprit.

If flood water is not handled quickly and properly, it can jeopardize your health and safety, and cause severe damage to your home’s structure. Remember, the longer you wait, the worse the problem will get.
