There’s More Than Floodwater Here, Can Your Restoration Teams Remove It All?

Flood damage to Cliffside Park homes always includes debris picked up by the floodwater before it enters a home. SERVPRO has specially trained Water Damage Restoration Technicians (WRTs) that can remove every type of debris along with the water to return your home to its original condition.

What Do WRTs Do First?

Since the debris can include soil, animal waste, sewer contents, and other contaminants, WRTs spray an anti-bacterial cleaner on the water and every exposed surface. This eliminates the immediate health threat so team members can bring in pumps and smaller extractors to draw out the floodwater.

After drawing out the standing water and water trapped in carpets, technicians detach the carpets and pads for immediate disposal along with other debris. Removal eliminates a large source of contaminants that can not only stain and ruin the floors underneath but also get rid of the source of odors that can permeate your home, resulting in further restoration costs.

What Does the Restoration Team Do Next?

After removing the water, SERVPRO has Applied Structural Drying Technicians (ASDs) to complete the restoration process. These team members train to use specialized devices like dehumidifiers to remove excess moisture from the air and out of nearby property like upholstered furniture and even drywall panels that absorbed a portion of the floodwater.

As the ASTs carefully dry out your personal and structural property, they also examine each item for contamination from the floodwater. Team members use an extensive inventory of cleaners designed for everything from glass to marble to wood to remove the soil and other contaminants without harming their surfaces.

To learn more about what our Teams can do for your home here or in Edgewater, call SERVPRO of Fort Lee at (201) 496-6024 today. We are here for you.
