Holmdel any damages can be overwhelming, let SERVPRO walk you through.

Though our doors only opened roughly a decade ago, we have already helped more than 2500 customers with a wide range of restoration services. From water and fire cleanup and recovery to mold remediation and storm response, our SERVPRO team works hard to live up to the commitment that We’re Faster To Any Size Disaster. When disasters strike Holmdel homes and businesses, residents are relying more and more on the award-winning service our team can provide, including heavy cleanup, large loss response, and full-scale reconstruction when needed.

Fire

Fire is a traumatic and stressful ordeal for all parties involved, and when it has consumed your family home, it can be even more overwhelming. We know you do not want to entrust your home to just anyone, and that is why over this past decade, we have worked to set ourselves apart as more than just another restoration company. We have sympathetic and compassionate technicians that care about your property and have the experience and the education to overcome most fire loss obstacles in Holmdel residences effectively.

The effects of a fire can spread quickly and fiercely through a Holmdel property, encompassing many of your personal belongings in rooms far from the ignition point. Soot and smoke damages are among the worst and most hazardous of these effects, and that is why our SERVPRO team works to provide immediate mitigation tactics to address the presence of these conditions beginning as soon as we arrive.

For widespread structural fire damage in Holmdel properties, we have a division of in-house reconstruction specialists to help. These experienced contractors can oversee fundamental aspects like debris removal and controlled demolition to reduce harsh odors and soot effects, but also can provide a seamless and efficient transition to the full-scale reconstruction needs of your property after a substantial fire loss scenario.

Mold

We do not need your business so badly that we are willing to sell you a service that your Holmdel residence does not need. When you are unsure if mold exists in your home, let us help you with a free inspection and assessment of this risk and determine definitively what your property needs and how our team can help you. We are renowned for our mold remediation services because of their efficiency and thoroughness, even into long-term solutions designed to prevent recurrences.

Not only do we need to remove mold colonies when they get discovered, but we also must eliminate the effects they introduce to the environment. Apart from the volatile organic compounds that can make exposure to mold colonies a hazard to occupants of your home, colonies also emit a harsh, musty odor that can make comfortable living difficult. Removing visible signs of mold damage can reduce the concentration of these odors, but the full deodorization often requires thermal fogging or the deployment of hydroxyl generators in Holmdel houses.

While we have many effective remediation practices that can preserve lightly damaged surfaces and contents on-site, we also must prepare for the possibility that deep-rooted organisms can change the composition of sensitive materials. The only solution for colony removal at this point would be controlled demolition by our team of contractors. Once the area gets dried, these same professionals can reinstall removed construction materials to complete the remediation process in your Holmdel residence fully.

Water

Much of our success with water restoration rests on the shoulders of the premier drying and extraction tools available to our SERVPRO team. From our hundreds of high-velocity air movers to our dehumidifiers, drying mats, and heaters, our professionals have an extensive inventory of recovery tools to manage water damage in Holmdel properties. With a fast response to your water emergency, much of the drying can occur when the threat is still on the surface.

The technicians available to help have thorough training in both structural drying and water restoration to provide a fast and confident response for your damaged Holmdel house. These specialists have material-specific strategies utilizing advanced tools and technologies. Tile and hardwood, for example, can benefit from tented drying mats that offer a steady draw of moisture in an easily monitored system.

To further protect your investments after a water loss incident, our professionals can move your personal belongings to an unaffected area of your Holmdel residence. In situations where this option is not possible, we have designated technicians to carefully pack up these items and store them safely in our climate-controlled warehouse until our team has fully restored your water-damaged home.

Storm

Structural concerns can quickly open up the door for flood damage in Holmdel residences without a fast and deliberate response from our SERVPRO disaster relief team. Even though we are on call 24/7 and can mobilize quickly, substantial damage to your structure can immediately lead to these water damages in some situations. We have the appropriate techniques that we can begin immediately to reduce the intrusion of new water and to work on mitigation of the current flooding effects.

Before we can address interior flooding concerns, we must seal up holes and vulnerabilities in your structure. We have a team of licensed contractors capable of offering immediate repairs and temporary construction solutions to prevent flood water penetration. From roof tarping to board up services, we can prevent further flooding so that our SERVPRO team can get to work on restoring the damage inside of your Holmdel house.

Because floodwater is rarely free of debris and sediment, a common extraction choice by our technicians is the self-priming trash pump. Though this can lose its prime when water levels drop below two inches, this is a manageable damage level for light wands and wet-vacs. There are many stages of recovery for a flooded Holmdel residence, but as a large loss service provider, we have the resources, personnel, and experience to help.

While you cannot predict what, if any, disasters your home might face over its lifetime, you can count on the experience and education of our SERVPRO of Aberdeen / Holmdel technicians to help however you need. Give us a call anytime at (732) 290-3170.

Remediating Mold Damage in a Hazlet Home

New Jersey homeowners know to be prepared for mold, as unpleasant as it may be to endure. However, they may not realize it has reproduced until it is more than they can readily handle. Because mold can cause health effects, it is safer to leave the cleanup to professionals who can remediate the issue without putting homeowners at risk.

If your Hazlet home requires mold damage remediation, IICRC-Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification--qualified SERVPRO technicians are available 24/7 to mitigate issues and restore your home. This team is available at any time of the day or night, including all holidays, so you can enjoy a clean home without microbe proliferation that can damage structures. All buildings contain some amount of mold and spores, but too much can affect the safety and stability of structures by eating away at wood, insulation, and other organic materials. Moisture and leak detection are crucial inspections to help prevent future outbreaks of mold colonization.

SERVPRO's Cutting-Edge Technologies
SERVPRO technicians employ a wide variety of measurement and mitigation technologies, including the following:

?    Moisture detection tools such as sensors, meters, infrared cameras, and Thermo hygrometers
?    High-powered extraction equipment designed to remove large amounts of water, including submersible and gas-powered pumps, as well as portable and truck-mounted extraction units
?    Commercial-grade air movers and dehumidifiers designed to restore materials to their optimal relative humidity
?    Odor removal equipment including HEPA filter air scrubbers, thermal and ultra-low volume foggers, and EPA-registered antimicrobials
?    Sanitizing agents designed to kill germs as well as stop bacteria, fungi, mold, mildew, and other microbes

How SERVPRO Can Help
If mold is affecting your property, SERVPRO technicians have a variety of tools available for removing mold. For porous surfaces that have extensive mold exposure, removal may be necessary and is done with the permission of property owners and insurance adjusters. Affected materials can include fabrics, upholstery, and carpet. For nonporous surfaces that have surface mold, or are soiled by organic material with mold growth on it, wet or dry cleaning methods may be implemented to dislodge and remove the mold. Mold-affected blown-in insulation can be sucked up with a specialized insulation vacuum. We recommend not to attempt to rehabilitate this material but to use a new product. Rolled, batten type insulation often harbors mold colonies within the paper backing. This contaminated insulation should be added to the trash heap.

SERVPRO of Aberdeen / Holmdel can ensure that your home looks, "Like it never even happened." For professional mold remediation from certified professionals, you can always call (732) 290-3170.

Holmdel Home Smells after a House Fire? No Worries, SERVPRO Has the Skilled Technicians and the Gear for Abatement

Why SERVPRO Uses a Selection of Smoke Odor Removal Equipment After Fire Damage in Holmdel

The odors a fire leaves behind in your Holmdel home can be tough to remove. Even after our team of talented technicians work hard to remove all the visible signs of heat and soot on surfaces, the lingering smells make it impossible to forget the fear and worry you and your family experienced when the flames swept through. Deep cleaning and debris removal do not always eliminate the malodors, why we cycle through various types of equipment to find a solution.

Odor Removal Is a Process

Determining the source of odors caused by fire damage to your Holmdel home is not a straightforward task. We toil until we are satisfied we have cleared away all the debris and residues possible. Any odor remaining is why we need to focus on the tiny particles of soot that are still airborne or settled in cracks and crevices. The solids in smoke are incompletely combusted materials, and they can hold on to the stench conventional cleaning cannot remove.

Fogging Machines

Our technicians use an Ultra Low Volume (ULV) mister for “wet” fogging. Water-based deodorants are atomized into a fine mist, creating a deodorant fog of particles 20 to 60 microns in size. They are small enough to penetrate spaces where the tiny odor-bearing solids settle. ULV misters are employed in HVAC system deodorization and in covering inaccessible areas like attics and crawl spaces. Thermal foggers work by recreating the conditions experienced during the fire, combusting solvent foggers work or petroleum-based deodorizer. The minute particles generated pair with odor-bearing molecules, causing a chemical reaction that eliminates rather than masks the smells. The success of these methods is why SERVPRO tries these options in many cases.

Ozone Generators and Photocatalytic Oxidizers

Ozone machines create an unstable gas that reacts with the odor-carrying molecules to oxidize them, removing the odor. Pets and inhabitants need to vacate the premises during the treatment. Photocatalytic oxidizers, also knowns as hydroxyl generators, use UV rays to produce hydroxyl radicals to break the odor-bearing bits into water and carbon dioxide. Advanced training is why SERVPRO technicians can explain how this process is safer to use in the presence of humans and animals.

Air Scrubbers and Ventilation Equipment

Negative pressure air scrubbers pull contaminated air through HEPA filters, removing malodorous particles. High-velocity air movers create a flow of 1000 to 3000 cubic feet of air per minute, clearing odors, fumes, and vapors. Airborne residues and vapors are why SERVPRO uses air movers after thermal fogging, exchanging the air 40 or more times to ensure air quality is optimized.

Our commitment to the science of odor removal is why SERVPRO of Aberdeen / Holmdel employs the above equipment and other strategies to remove the smells that persist after fire damage. Call us at (732) 290-3170 for a fire recovery consultation, including an odor removal plan.
