Brick residents, we specialize in Water Damage Cleanup

4/6/2017 (Permalink)

You ever have a leaky pipe in your home?  Unfortunately, for this Brick resident, a pipe leak in their kitchen caused severe water damage to their home.  Several areas of their home were affected by this leak including their entire finished basement which consisted of ceiling tile, carpet, pad & personal belongings were affected, as were kitchen flooring & cabinets.

 

We started the road to recovery for this homeowner by manipulating a lot of content in the basement, and although we had to dispose of the wet carpet pad, we were successfully able to lift, dry and ultimately salvage the carpeting.  Being able to salvage the carpeting was great news for the homeowner and a testament to the advanced quality of SERVPRO’s equipment and training of our crew. 

 

There was also significant damage to the kitchen.  We need to remove the laminate floor in order to dry the plywood subfloor.  As with all our losses, we try to preserve and protect as much as possible and fortunately for the insured and their insurance company, we were able to clean, dry and salvage much of the content.

 

After using our advanced techniques and fleet of dehumidifiers and air movers, this house had a “dry” bill of health.  Thank you to this homeowner for trusting SERVPRO of Howell/Wall when disaster struck and we are thrilled to have put their home well on its way to making this leaky kitchen pipe “Like it never even happened.”

Home Maintenance Checklist to be Ready for Spring

General Home Maintenance Checklist to be Ready for Spring Spring is Here!

Punxsutawney Phil said we would have six more weeks of winter and he was right.  But winter has past and now its time for spring.  Here is a checklist of things to check on your home this spring from your friends at SERVPRO of Howell/Wall


 


1:  Examine the shingles on your roof.  Now that winter is gone, you want to check to make sure that you haven’t been damaged or lost.  Any shingles that cracked, buckled or loose need to be replaced in order to keep your house dry through April showers.


 


2: While your up there, examine your chimney, if you have one, for damage.  Also, its not a bad idea to get a chimney sweep to examine and clean the flue.


 


3:  Check your wood, including the trim around windows, doors, railings and decks with th a screwdriver to probe for trouble spots.  Be sure you make your repairs before the spring storms do more damage to your wood.


 


4:  Check your gutters to make sure they are still secure or leaking.  Also, make sure gutters are unclogged, free of debris, and that they are not draining into the foundation.


 


5:  Inspect your concrete slabs for cracks.  If you have cracks, fill them silicone caulk or concrete crack filler, then, when the weather cooperates, power wash and seal the concrete.


 


6:  Time to check the outside faucets that may have been damaged in the freezing temps of winter.   Turn on your faucet and try and stop the flow of water with your thumb.  If you can stop the water, that is an indication the pipes inside the home are damaged and need to be replaced. 


 


7:  Have your outside AC unit serviced by a qualified HVAC contractor.  Have your unit cleaned annual to keep your system running efficiently and at peak performance.


 


Thanks for reading and enjoy your Spring.

Asbury Park: We Specialize in Water Damage

Water Damage Asbury Park:  We Specialize in Water Damage Damage to the ceiling due to water pipe burst

Recently disaster struck for one resident in Asbury Park when a pipe burst on the 3rd floor of their home.  The pipe burst caused major damage to the lower floors and over a foot of water in the basement.  SERVPRO of Howell/Wall was called to begin emergency water mitigation services.

 

First, we accessed the damage and packed out all the salvageable items from the home and are storing them for the duration of the clean-up and rebuilding process.  Unfortunately for this home owner there was a lot of personal items that could not be saved.  Those items were inventoried and disposed of in multiple on site 30 yard dumpsters. 

 

This Asbury Park home was constructed with drywall over plaster on every wall.  The demolition of the water damaged walls was a extremely labor intensive and down right back breaking for the team of SERVPRO of Howell/Wall, but as always, the team was up to the task!  After several days, the demolition of the water damaged first and second was complete and we could begin the next phase of this project…drying.  

 

SERVPRO of Howell/Wall needed to use our industrial-sized drying equipment to remove the remaining moisture left behind by the breaking of this 3rd floor pipe.  We worked with the homeowner and utility company to get the power restored to the home to allow us to complete the drying process with our dehumidifiers and air movers.  After several days of drying, our work was complete and the homeowner was ready to begin the rebuilding phrase. 

 

We want to thank this homeowner for trusting SERVPRO of Howell/Wall when disaster struck and we kept our promise to make it “Like it never happened”, a promise we make to everyone who trusts us with their homes.

Fire Damage Howell and Wall Residents:  We specialize in Fire Damage Cleanup Extensive damage to ceiling

SERVPRO of Howell/Wall is your go to professional when disaster strikes.  Recently we were called to action for SERVPRO’s expert fire mitigation services.  We were on the scene of a house fire in Wall Township.  The fire started in the attic and caused extensive damage throughout the home. 

We started our work by conducting an initial inspection of the fire damage throughout the home.  Upon our inspection, we immediately mobilized air scrubbers to begin filtering the inside air of all the impurities left behind by the fire and to help with odor control.

Next, we arranged for on-site storage of our homeowner’s salvageable belongings.   We cleaned and packed the items that could be saved.  After storing and cleaning, clean up on the structure damage began.  We demolished the affected areas of the house, which included fire and water damaged floors, walls and ceilings.  In order to prevent disaster from striking again during cleanup, the utilities were turned off, but at SERVPRO of Howell/Wall, we are fully equipped with an on-site generator to power our drying equipment which includes dehumidifiers and air movers to help prevent microbial growth.

These are just some of the services we are committed to providing you at SERVPRO of Howell/Wall.  We are available 24/7, 365 days a year to help you when disaster strikes.  Call us anytime at 732-577-1010.
