Call SERVPRO for Prompt Water Damage Assistance in Paramus

One of the more prevalent forms of damage found in residential homes and commercial businesses is water damage. This is due to many causes that may sometimes go undetected. Any excess water can make its way into your Paramus property because of weather conditions like heavy rains and flooding. There could also be internal problems like leaking or burst pipes, excessive humidity, and leaking fixtures. Because the extent of the damage may be deceiving, having trained technicians from SERVPRO take a look is the best course of action.

While it may be tempting to address water damage in Paramus on your own, hiring a professional ensures nothing gets overlooked. DIY methods and someone with an untrained eye could make it where you have the potential for costly secondary damage or mildew and black mold growth. Here at SERVPRO, we have IICRC-certified water restoration technicians (WRT) with all the experience and equipment to handle any size residential or commercial water restoration project.

Top Reasons to Hire Skilled Technicians for Water Damage Issues

Aside from the need for results, there are plenty of benefits that come from having SERVPRO for water removal services and restoration, including:

  • Hidden leak and water damage detection – One of the most challenging things about water issues will be understanding the extent of the damage. Water gets absorbed into building materials like drywall, insulation, and wood. We dive in to follow the path of migration to ensure no moisture gets left behind, pinpointing and addressing the root cause of the water problem.
  • Professional-grade equipment, tools, and products – We bring state-of-the-art equipment to each water damage call to ensure all excess moisture and water get removed. This includes advanced drying equipment like air movers, shop vacs, drying mats, and dehumidifiers. There will also be helpful tools like moisture sensors and meters that find hidden moisture and tell us how we are doing as the project moves along.
  • Rapid response and proven methods generate results – Once you make initial contact with our customer care team, we arrive at your door within hours to get to work. We assess the issue and begin water extraction as soon as possible to ensure proper water mitigation. 

How Can Professional Water Damage Cleanup and Restoration Save Me Money?

It may seem that hiring professionals for water damage are a cost that you cannot take on. However, it saves you time and cuts losses in the long run. We want all Paramus area customers to know that SERVPRO makes it “Like it never even happened” while working to restore versus replace whenever possible. Things to keep in mind:

  • Having our Green Fleet on the scene as soon as possible to perform water mitigation keeps water from getting absorbed into your building materials. It can generate more extensive damage or mold growth.
  • Restorations for extensive secondary damage and structural issues brought on by water and mold can be more expensive than calling us initially.
  • We work with the restore versus replace mentality, meaning we salvage and clean whatever we can to save time and money.

We are Your Insurance Liaison to Ensure Your Claim Goes Smoothly

Should your home or any personal belongings get damaged because of excessive water or moisture, you must file a claim for insurance compensation. We work with your insurance provider to ensure all paperwork is in order so that your claim goes off without a hitch.

mold damage on the concrete walls of a basement Do you know how to locate mold damage in your home? SERVPRO does! We have the tools to remediate the mold quickly.

SERVPRO’s Mold Damage Techniques Offer Results for Paramus Residents

If you find mold in your Paramus home or business, you should never take it lightly. Seasoned property owners who spot mold on floors, walls, and furniture will know that something needs to get done as soon as possible. SERVPRO is there to help you remedy the issue and clean all surfaces to restore your property, ensuring everything gets our Certified: SERVPRO Cleaned seal of approval!

Why hire professionals rather than embark on a DIY journey for mold damage in Paramus? Most people do not have the proper gear, tools, and products to handle mold infestation. Additionally, any over-the-counter products that tell you they remove mold are simply a myth. You should always have the pros handle any mold mitigation and cleanup!

We Know How to Handle Careful Mold Remediation

Several issues can arise from a mold problem in your bathroom, kitchen, basement, and other areas of your home. Mold comes in many forms and only needs the right environment to thrive and colonize – moisture and organic materials to feed and grow. All it takes is a slight increase in humidity, and it can kickstart the mold growth process. Some problems that may occur once microbial spores multiply include:

  • Severe structural damage
  • Permanent damage to furnishings and contents
  • Devaluation of your home

What if I Find Mold During a Renovation Project?

During a renovation to your Paramus property, you will repair or remodel any broken, damaged, or outdated building areas. Most mold types will be noteworthy and apparent as far as appearance. Just a few of the visible mold types include:

  • Velvet-like mold grows in damp areas around leaking sinks, showers, and bathtubs.
  • Black, pink, or brown mold may develop around furniture, wooden surfaces, and behind wallpaper. 
  • Gray, pink, orange, or white mold can sometimes be found around cooling coils, drain pans, window sealants, and humidifiers.

Did You Know There Could Be Mold Development Throughout Your HVAC System?

It is no secret that mold spores detach and move through the air that we breathe to find new materials to thrive on. It is essential to call for professional mold remediation if you suspect it has infiltrated your HVAC system. Any trapped moisture in your air ducts can become a problem during the spring and summer months as cool air moves through. In just a couple of days, spores can accumulate and spread throughout the rest of the system. 

When you call in SERVPRO to help with mold cleanup efforts, we will:

  • Suit up in a full set of personal protective equipment (PPE), including hazmat suits, boots, gloves, goggles, and respirators.
  • Turn off your HVAC system to keep the mold spores from blowing around your home. 
  • Identify all areas where mold is present, ensuring everything gets thoroughly cleaned, sanitized, and deodorized with the help of EPA-registered disinfectants and antimicrobials. This may include cleaning air vents, handling mold that may have developed in your insulation, and looking at areas where mold could be hiding. 
  • Our IICRC-certified technicians also ensure the cause of the mold growth gets addressed, whether it is a slow leak in your plumbing, a faulty tub or shower, or poor ventilation in a bathroom, laundry room, etc.

For areas where materials are deemed unsalvageable, our team performs controlled demolition to remove the mold damage to make everything “Like it never even happened.”

Call SERVPRO of Paramus whenever you suspect you have a mold damage issue. We can be reached by dialing (201) 445-5588.

Fire Damage Restoration You Can Trust in Paramus

fire damaged living room with soot-covered items and debris Don't worry if you have fire damage in your Paramus home. Call SERVPRO for their specialized service.

SERVPRO is Here for Fire Damage Cleanup for Paramus Residents

There are instances after a fire gets put out in a home where little thought goes into the impact of smoke and soot on your interior. This is a common problem when anyone attempts a DIY fire restoration rather than calling in the expertise of skilled fire and smoke restoration technicians (FSRT) after having a fire in their Paramus home or business. SERVPRO understands best practices for house fire cleanup and smoke remediation so that we can help you restore your home to pre-fire condition. We’re Faster to Any Size Disaster and come armed with the right equipment and methods to get the restoration project completed promptly.

There is the fallout from charred debris and other fire damage in Paramus, but you also need to think of the impact of smoke and soot throughout your home. These residues are byproducts that can cause corrosion or discoloration of various materials. This is why it becomes essential to enlist the help of a trusted restoration team to address fire damaged homes to get at all of the soot and smoke that traveled into crevices and various materials. 

We Understand the Damage Brought on By Soot and Smoke Residue

There are several factors at play with any fire restoration project. Not only do we handle the removal and careful disposal of all charred contents and debris, but we follow best practices for smoke remediation. The different types of issues to remember when it comes to smoke residue and soot include:

  • Wet Smoke – This gets generated with a smoldering fire that burns at a lower temperature. Unlike the dry, powdery soot you will have in a fast-burning fire, as wet smoke settles, it becomes sticky and clammy. It will also be challenging to clean due to smearing, so we bring specialized cleaning agents to each project.
  • Odors – Some smoke damage will be easy to see and smell depending on the nature and materials impacted. Fabrics like upholstery and clothing make it easy to detect smoky smells. Because the particles can become embedded in certain materials, they can linger for a long time if not appropriately addressed. Our Odor Control Technicians (OCT) know how to root out and manage all areas where odorous particles are settled, using ultra-low volume (ULV) foggers and various products to eliminate them rather than masking the smell.
  • Staining – Once flames get extinguished, there will be some signs of visible smoke damage, while other surfaces might not show it until days later. Walls, granite or marble countertops, and any exposed wood may experience permanent discoloration if not treated as soon as possible. Due to smoke damage, tarnishing may also develop on iron, steel, brass, and aluminum.

We Are Here to Ensure You Get Prompt Restoration to Ease Your Mind

Homeowners that go through a fire often feel several stages of loss and grief. SERVPRO’s technicians understand the impact and devastation fire brings, so we take the time to carefully navigate your project, keeping you apprised of our progress at each step. It is normal to feel shocked, angry, and even hopeless seeing the charred remnants of a fire. We are here to:

  • Restore your belongings versus replace them whenever possible
  • Working as a liaison with your insurance company for your fire damage claim
  • Board up and tarping services to protect your interior from further damage during restoration
  • Controlled demolition services to make your home “Like it never even happened.” – General Contractor License #13VH001305854800

Hillsdale Home Having a Water Problem?

5/19/2022 (Permalink)

standing water on a concrete floor What! DIY'ers drying their home in Paramus without advanced equipment like SERVPRO's centrifugal heated air mover? Call us for positive results.

Tips for Performing Water Cleanup in Your Hillsdale Property

The scene of standing water in your kitchen, dining room, living room, or even the bedroom can be stressful. Water does not belong there. If you do not take care of this problem quickly, you may incur unimaginable damage within a short time. In any water  incident, you can take the following steps to clean up your residence.

Observe safety

Before you start performing water cleanup in your Hillsdale home, take precautions to ensure safety. Switch off the power to prevent the risk of electrocution if the water is pooling around outlets or appliances. You should also try to wear thick rubber gloves to protect your hands.

Remove the water

You can remove the water using mops or a shop vac. Remove as much water as possible to speed up the drying process. Please consider hiring a professional water damage restoration company like SERVPRO to help you out. We have powerful water extraction equipment such as portable pumps and wet/dry vacuums. We can use them to remove water from your carpets and hardwood floors effectively and quickly, perhaps saving your efforts and possessions.

Dry the affected areas

Drying your home after a water intrusion incident is best done by professionals because the typical fan may not remove all the moisture. Dampness can cause secondary damage to your home. The moisture enables the growth of fungi which can cause wood rot. Paint and plaster can deteriorate, and wallpaper can loosen. Our technicians can use industrial-grade air movers and dehumidifiers to dry the floors, walls, and other surfaces in your home thoroughly. We also use thermal imaging cameras to inspect and monitor the moisture in building materials. If the water pooled on your carpet, our technicians can use moisture sensors to detect moisture in the carpet and pad. Moisture sensors have sharp probes that can penetrate through carpets and padding to determine if there is moisture in the subfloor underneath.

Disinfect and deodorize

Regardless of the cause of water intrusion, it is essential to disinfect your home to kill bacteria that the standing water might have spread. Microbes are present in any water damage, be it black, gray, or clean water. They may proliferate and cause one category of water damage to deteriorate into a more contaminated category. Our SERVPRO crew can use antimicrobial products to sanitize the affected areas. Your home may also have bad scents after a water intrusion incident. We can use equipment like hydroxyl machines, air scrubbers, and Vaportek units to remove the offensive odors. We understand how odors spread through water, and we can eliminate them.

If you need help to restore your Paramus, Westwood, or Washington Township home after water damage, contact SERVPRO of Paramus at (201) 445-5588. Our SERVPRO team is available 24/7 and will respond quickly to your emergency.

Our Experts Explain How A Flood Could Damage Your Paramus Home

5/19/2022 (Permalink)

yellow background with words need help on it Call SERVPRO of Paramus at (201) 445-5588 to help restore your property to its preloss state.

What Could Worsen Flood Damage In Paramus Homes?

Flooding is not an outcome that you would typically expect to deal with in your home. However, flooding in urban settings is a real danger due to several factors such as inadequate storm drainage systems and landscaping options such as paving of driveways and walkways. If a flood hits your home, some factors may worsen the situation. Our professional flood damage mitigation services help Paramus homeowners prevent a bad situation from turning worse.

Delayed removal of water and excess moisture after flood damage in Paramus can worsen the situation. Other problems, such as mold start developing within 24 to 48 hours. Rotting and other forms of deterioration affecting various materials such as wood may also occur. Our SERVPRO technicians begin water extraction procedures as soon as possible. We expedite the process by using sophisticated equipment such as truck-mounted or portable water extractors depending on the severity of the situation.

Having the wrong expectations can worsen the situation. Since it is probably the first time your home has flooded, you might not expect the restoration process to take long. However, many flooding situations require weeks or even months for proper cleanup and restoration. Alternatively, you might feel that the situation is dire and therefore see no urgency in starting the restoration process. A lackluster approach could create an opportunity for avoidable deterioration. Our SERVPRO technicians rely on extensive experience to help you understand the situation. The training and IICRC (The Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification) certification we receive also helps us evaluate the damaged site, and give rough estimates of the time it can take to fix.

Failure to do proper scoping after a flooding incident can leave some issues unaddressed, worsening the initial problem. The water left pooling around after flooding migrates due to gravity action. Therefore, even extraction efforts might leave pockets of wetness. Our SERVPRO technicians do thorough scoping and rely on sophisticated moisture detection equipment such as thermal cameras and moisture sensors to ensure we identify all wet areas.

Suppose you need professional help for the proper management of flood damage. Call SERVPRO of Paramus at (201) 445-5588 to help restore your property to its preloss state. We’re Faster to Any

Car Driving Through Water in The Road Heavy rains can cause rain runoff to enter your home. Call SERVPRO for the expertise to remove it quickly.

Rain Runoff Causes Flood Damage in Paramus

North Jersey is densely populated, and our many retail and commercial outlets offer paved parking for all. Residents of Paramus can find rain runoff impacting their homes, filling basements and lower levels with potentially contaminated water. We invest in state-of-the-art equipment and a highly-qualified workforce ready to help with flood water woes. 

Flood damage in your Paramus residence is unduly disruptive and destructive. It cannot be ignored and requires the assistance of professional remediation specialists. Rapid removal and a complete dry out are essential to avoid progressive deterioration of building materials and inhibit mold growth. 

Our SERVPRO flood damage remediation crews are prepared to work immediately after our experienced project manager assesses the situation and develops the job plan. We stock our vehicles with the equipment, products, and specialized tools needed for the series of tasks we anticipate completing so that we can begin working as soon as we reach the worksite. 

The crew is also fully trained and certified in various specialties such as Water Damage Restoration Technician (WDRT) and Applied Structural Drying Technician (ASDT). The Institute of Inspection, Cleaning, and Restoration Certification (IICRC), an international standards development organization for the restoration industry, provides the coursework and knowledge base supporting our employees. 

Water quality assessments generally indicate that floodwaters are contaminated, so we contain and dispose of them following applicable regulations. SERVPRO uses commercial-grade pumps and water extractors to get that part of the job accomplished. We use sensitive moisture meters and thermal scanners to detect hidden water, using flood cuts or top-down extraction to release it. 

Cleaning and disinfecting with EPA-registered antimicrobials follow. The flooded space receives thorough structural drying using air movers, heaters, and dehumidifiers. We continuously monitor for moisture levels, ceasing the drying efforts only after the reading return to normal. 

We also assist with an evaluation of the damage done to contents, often transporting them to a protected area on your property or our production facility. Specialized SERVPRO technicians offer innovative strategies like freeze-drying for papers and photos and controlled drying chambers for electronics and furnishings.

Because water losses are such an everyday staple to the work that we do, we have made it a requirement for all of our technicians to have Water Restoration Technician certification through the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC.) Because of how quickly the symptoms can migrate and saturate construction materials, contents, and flooring in a Paramus home, many technicians have additional training and certification in Applied Structural Drying (ASD) and extensive training through the American Drying Institute.

How to Remove Soot and Smoke Damage From Your Paramus Home

4/7/2022 (Permalink)

Soot In A Room Removing smoke and soot damage from walls can be difficult. You can trust the experts at SERVPRO of Paramus to clean your home.

Dry Cleaning is not Just for Clothing - We Use it to Cleanup Smoke-Damaged Homes in Paramus. 

Restoring our customers' homes in Paramus means that every aspect of their house's damage needs attention. We provide this in a diverse number of ways, using different methods. We have the necessary materials to ensure that not only do we do this effectively but that we also do so efficiently. 

If the surfaces inside your home in Paramus become soot-covered, permanent staining and corrosion can happen. We know how to remove this from both washable items and non-washable ones. Dry cleaning methods work to remove soot and smoke residue from non-washable surfaces. Wetting these items could lead to irreversible damage. SERVPRO's dry cleaning methods prevent this from happening and save you from needing to replace such belongings and other materials. 

Two of the most relied upon methods are the dry sponge and the vacuum. Both remove and trap soot particles. The sponge relies on its pores, and the vacuums we use come with HEPA filters. Our vacuums trap lighter particles of soot. SERVPRO technicians often use a brush with the vacuum to remove more of the larger-sized particles. We can get surfaces cleaned more fully with the sponge after removing a significant portion of the soot. 

A sponge can clean large areas of walls and ceilings before it begins to show overload by leaving streak marks behind. Once this happens, we continue with another sponge. While these are reusable after we rinse and air dries them, we do not need to do this on the job site, as they come in packs of a dozen.

Another method that removes soot is compressed air, which can blow soot off surfaces without introducing any moisture into the material we are cleaning. 

The stress on a displaced family can create additional problems, and we want to eliminate the mess that keeps our customers from residing in their residences. We use these same techniques to prepare washable surfaces for wet cleaning, as the removal of any soot beforehand makes the process more efficient. 

SERVPRO of Paramus can help your family with these and other methods after smoke and fire damage create a dirty mess in your Hillsdale, Washington Township, or Woodcliff Lake residence. Call us at (201) 445-5588, any time, 365 days a year, to speak to us about how we can help.
