Comprehensive Water Damage Restoration in Central & Southern NJ

Professional Water Damage Cleanup Services in NJ

When it comes to water damage, a typical situation involves the spreading out and flow of water through the path of least resistance, especially toward substructures, lower floors and your property’s foundation. Porous materials like wood, sheetrock or other building materials, will soak up the water as it flows. The result includes discoloration, swelling, broken adhesive bonds, flooring separation, warping and the overall breakdown of your building’s structure. The more time that passes before calling in a professional to begin the restoration process, the greater the damage will be. Even if the water evaporates unassisted, it will not be properly dried and therefore can cause damage to ceilings, walls and contents as well as encourage mold growth.

Step-by-Step Water Damage Restoration Process

Water damage can strike unexpectedly, whether due to a burst pipe, flooding, or a leak. When such an event occurs, swift and effective action is essential to minimize damage and restore your property to its pre-loss condition. At ServiceMaster of The Shore Area, we specialize in water damage restoration, and our comprehensive process is designed to get your life back on track as quickly as possible.

Our comprehensive water damage restoration process includes:

  • Initial Assessment: Our journey to restoring your property begins with a thorough assessment of the water damage. We evaluate the extent and severity of the damage, identify the areas affected, assess structural integrity, and pinpoint potential safety hazards. This initial step provides us with a clear understanding of the situation, allowing us to plan effectively.
  • Water Extraction: The next crucial step is removing the standing water from your property. We utilize industrial-grade pumps and vacuums to extract water swiftly and efficiently. This action prevents further damage and sets the stage for the drying process.
  • Moisture Detection and Monitoring: Water often seeps into hidden areas that are not immediately visible. Our team employs state-of-the-art moisture reading equipment to detect water in concealed spaces such as walls and ceilings. This ensures that no moisture goes unnoticed, preventing potential issues like mold growth.
  • Dehumidification and Structural Drying: Drying out the affected areas is essential to prevent further damage and mold growth. We use advanced dehumidifiers and other equipment to ensure that wet materials like wood flooring, carpets, and walls are thoroughly dried, restoring the structural integrity of your property.
  • Sanitization: Our comprehensive sanitization treatments help eliminate hazardous microorganisms that can cause health problems. This step ensures that your property is not only dry but also safe and free from potential health risks.
  • Mold Inspections: Mold is a common consequence of water damage. We conduct mold inspections to identify any growth and, if necessary, perform mold remediation to ensure a safe and healthy environment.
  • Documentation for Insurance Claims: We maintain detailed records of the restoration process, including photographs, moisture readings, and repair details. This documentation facilitates the insurance claims process, making it easier for you to navigate.
  • Reconstruction: Once mitigation and cleaning are complete, we initiate the reconstruction process. This phase involves rebuilding damaged structures, replacing materials as necessary, and repainting to restore your property to its original state.
  • Assistance with Insurance Claims: Throughout the insurance claims process, we provide support to streamline your claim, including communication with the insurance company, to ensure you receive the compensation you deserve.

Our goal is to address the immediate water damage, prevent further damage, and return your property to a safe and habitable condition.
