Water Damage Repair in New Providence Homes after a Storm
For Efficient New Providence Storm Cleanup, Contact SERVPRO
A storm is usually characterized by torrential rains and high wind speeds that exert colossal pressure on the exterior surfaces of a structure. The windows, doors, and roofs are the most sensitive components of a home, as the winds can snap tree branches throwing them all over. Significant water volumes could enter your New Providence home when windows and roofs are compromised and cause appalling damage.
Speedy water damage repair at a New Providence property is essential, as excess moisture can affect every structural component, including the framing and foundation. When your floor is exposed to large amounts of water, the floor covering may deteriorate. Signs of high moisture levels in your flooring include buckling, cupping, and warping. SERVPRO responds quickly to storm emergencies extracting excess water, using a pump or squeegee, from your floors to prevent material deterioration.
Readily identifiable damage includes:
- Fallen and sagging ceiling panels
- Deteriorated drywall and insulation in walls
- Soaked carpet and furniture
- Damage to electrical fixtures
Storm Damage Repair
The restoration professionals at SERVPRO determine the best approach based on the state of your home - the affected contents and structural components. Since storm-damaged structures pose many hazards, like broken glass pieces, exposed nails, wood splinters, and other sharp objects, our teams are well-equipped with PPE to avoid injuries.
Steps during repair:
- Boarding up and installing tarps to halt water intrusion
- Remove absorbent materials such as carpet padding, furniture, and drapes
- Use air movers and dehumidifiers in affected areas to restore humidity
- Remove hidden moisture behind wallboards to avoid mold
Board-ups are crucial to help stop further moisture intrusion. Before installing tarps, SERVPRO crews determine the structural integrity of the roof. The ceiling may also pose dangers as it might be holding water. We drill weep holes starting from the edge of the sagging area to drain the cavity.
