Homes in Basking Ridge and Surrounding Areas Can Face Structural Issues as the Result of Stormwater

Homes in Basking Ridge needing emergency water remediation services after a storm can have more problems than one might think. Floodwater carries microorganisms and waste that enter your home and settle within porous surfaces, such as upholstered furniture, while also weakening dry-wall and flooring materials. As time lapses, the negative effects of flooding worsen, and structural elements can be in grave danger if homeowners don’t act quickly.

To handle flood damage in Basking Ridge, call SERVPRO and let our specially trained staff take care of it all. When microbes are allowed to grow and spread through your home, you might find some of the following evidence taking up residence in your house-

  • Mold growth and mildew spreading on walls, floors, and subfloors
  • A musty odor permeates every surface and is resistant to household air fresheners
  • Discoloration of walls and ceilings, indicating water damage

Our SERVPRO team relies on advanced equipment to assess the problem to achieve a full water cleanup and restoration. Thermo-hygrometers and thermal imaging help us find where water is hiding and how moisture spreads within building materials. Based on their readings, we strategically place air movers, dehumidifiers, and other specialty drying equipment to encourage water evaporation and restore optimal humidity levels. In many of the jobs we perform, removing certain items is necessary, and our team handles their disposal according to relevant environmental regulations. As needed, we can also provide move-out services to preserve your belongings in an off-site location while we dry, clean, and disinfect your home.

At SERVPRO of Bridgewater, we are available around the clock to serve our community. Call us at (908) 222-2020 and let us leave your home “Like it never even happened.”
