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. In case your home is hit by a flood, 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 floods, 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 loss 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.
