The Secret to Successful Nutley Water Damage Remediation

SERVPRO restoration equipment being used in water damaged room No matter the source of the loss, water damage requires fast cleanup to prevent secondary issues. SERVPRO is available 24/7 to dry your home.

SERVPRO Saves Contents from Water Damage

As the science of restoration advances for better remediation of water damage for contents and structures, we can help property owners experience less property damage and possessions through our proprietary methods.

Water damage in a Nutley home occurred from a burst pipe running through the ceiling over a bedroom closet. The water saturated the ceiling and nearly everything in the closet area before the homeowner had a chance to shut off the water. SERVPRO arrived quickly and removed the salvageable contents from the closet for drying and deodorization in our facility.

Water Clean Up

SERVPRO technicians always try to restore the contents of homes rather than have the homeowner replace them. Carpeting saturated in a clean water damage event does not automatically need replacing if it is cleaned quickly and professionally. This is why our technicians spend a good deal of time extracting water from carpeting and padding. Doing several passes with an extractor wand lowers the amount of time needed for drying.

A drying configuration called "floating" was used for the carpeting in the closet. One side was loosened, and an air mover was directed underneath to effectively pull all the moisture out of the padding and dry the carpet from the bottom up. As air movers force moist air to the surface, dehumidifiers capture it.

Mold is always a concern after a water intrusion. Our technicians thoroughly wipe down all surfaces affected by the water with our antifungal solutions to inhibit mold growth after drying.  This also is an effective way to neutralize odors left behind, so there are no lingering reminders of the drenching every time the homeowner opens the closet door.
