When Flood Damage Ravages Randolph SERVPRO is Ready

Extreme weather patterns have brought significant flooding activity to the Randolph area in recent years. When a homeowner sees the water rising in the lower levels of a snug and comfortable dwelling, it is devastating. Fast action is necessary because water itself is very destructive, and floodwater mixed with debris, including mud, field and landscaping chemicals, sewage, dead animals, and more, is catastrophic in its effects.

When contaminated water from the neighboring area sweeps flood damage into your Randolph home, help is needed immediately. Our team of disaster response experts is on the move to you within hours of your first call. A seasoned project manager assesses the damage, devising a workable plan to remove the water, containing it for hazardous waste disposal if necessary. Technicians trained in the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning, and Restoration Certification (IICRC) best industry practices implement the plan.

SERVPRO service vehicles are loaded with the equipment, products, and tools needed to extract excess water and then clean and disinfect the spaces affected. We use thermal imaging to locate any water trapped behind structures and take baseline moisture measurements to inform our ultimate drying goals. When dealing with floodwaters, we take particular care, typically characterized as Category 3 or black water, the most contaminated.

When living areas flood, carpeting, and padding is usually discarded, as is most insulation. Cleaning these fixtures is difficult because of the residues and debris in the water. EPA-registered disinfectants do an excellent job of sanitizing solid surfaces, and the SERVPRO crew is skilled in their application.

Once the water is out and the area disinfected, SERVPRO technicians create a perimeter of air movers, heaters, and dehumidifiers to dry the flood damaged space. To ensure that the warmed, dry air pulls moisture from cavities, we might make flood cuts near the floor and ceiling to create a chimney effect. Our workers monitor the moisture content of structural components and the air to ensure we achieve drying goals.

SERVPRO of Southwest Morris County is ready to answer the call when residents find their lower levels flooded. Call us at (973) 895-5000 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, to set up an assessment.
