A Leak in Your Randolph Home Can Cause Secondary Damage That Only a Professional Team Can Help You Address.

A burst pipe in your Randolph home can cause a dramatic event or leak for some time before you notice what's happening. The water compromises your walls, personal belongings, and other structural elements in your home. Rather than take a wait-and-see approach, take the proactive step of calling a water restoration technician before secondary damage erupts.

SERVPRO is at your service for water cleanup services for homes in Randolph. Our team is certified by the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) to apply industry best practices to help restore your home. The dangers of leaving water unattended are far beyond cosmetic. In some cases, the excess humidity can cause mold to grow, becoming a threat to your health. To prevent future problems, call our 24/7 hotline and let us put our expertise to work for you.

What can I do before professionals arrive?

If water is seeping into your carpets and flooring, you may want to elevate your items if possible. Our SERVPRO team has all the necessary equipment to help you do this and the capability of boxing and moving things out of your home as needed. When the damage isn't as extensive, we may set up a staging area in another part of your home where your belongings are safe from absorbing any more water. Another step you may take is to ventilate the site as much as possible and soak up excess moisture with a wet/dry vacuum if available. Once we arrive, you can see our staff use a combination of some of the following techniques-

Drying mats to extract excess water from hardwood materials 

Injectidry to circulate warm air within wall cavities and protect your walls

Wand extractors to remove water from hard-to-reach corners

The size of the leak does not matter when it comes down to protecting your home. SERVPRO of Southwest Morris County is here to help when you need us. Call us at (973) 895-5000 and we will leave your home, "Like it never even happened."
