Mitigating Standing Water Damage in a Cranford Basement
As the Before Photo shows, this Cranford home needed emergency water mitigation that would act quickly to prevent mold growth or structural damage to the basement. SERVPRO responded with fast-acting extraction and drying services to restore this basement to a clean, dry state, ready for any necessary repair or replacement services for structural materials and contents. Such services include wiping down furniture with EPA-registered antimicrobials, demolishing wet walls, and installing new sheetrock.
In the After Photo, the standing water has been extracted from the basement, and air movers have been set up to circulate air in a counterclockwise motion around the room. This procedure is part of how SERVPRO technicians are trained to use air movement in conjunction with dehumidifiers to remediate the last traces of excess water from a property. After this process finishes, restoration professionals can focus on tasks like odor control, making necessary repairs to structures or contents, and moving belongings back per homeowner's needs.
