Why SERVPRO For Water Removal In Basking Ridge Homes

Basking Ridge is about as picturesque a community as you can find in our part of the state. Our location is inland just far enough to protect us from much of the flooding that happens to other communities. That does not stop broken dishwashers or rusted out water heaters from spilling 30 gallons or more across area kitchens, hallways, and living rooms.

Quick removal of this water from your Basking Ridge home is why SERVPRO should be your first choice to return your home to its original state. Careful, rapid drying of the home can prevent extensive loss of structural property.

Most of these incidents involve smaller amounts of water, so our technicians often use smaller extraction wands rather than commercial pumps, to remove them. The extractors in our inventory have multiple vacuum speeds and a heating element, so personnel can adjust both to match the level of water needing removal without causing any secondary damage to wood floors.

After removing the standing water, SERVPRO response team members look for water that may have seeped between floorboards and collected into the sub-floor below them. If this happens, personnel take steps to remove the water without harming the wood.

They start by removing a floorboard that is partially covered by floor trim or is usually hidden by a hutch or another large piece of furniture to gain access. Technicians then direct an air mover to force warm air into the sub-floor cavity and speed up the evaporation process. If there is a large amount of water in the cavity, they also have the option to use one of our smaller extractors to draw it out of the affected space. Once completed, they replace the floorboard and any floor trim they pulled up earlier.

At SERVPRO of Bridgewater, our goal is to help every homeowner return their residence to its condition before the water intrusion happened. If you have had any water come across your floors, no matter the source, call us today at (908) 222-2020 to schedule a visit from one of our service teams. We are here for you.
