Water and Flood Damage
Whether a basement flood from an East Brunswick area downpour, burst pipes, or just a minor roof leak don’t underestimate the potential for water damage, much or all of which can remain hidden for weeks or months. Water soaks in quickly, often in a matter of minutes, beneath flooring and inside walls. Deterioration can really get going in as little as 24 hours, yet without special drying equipment and expertise, it can linger for weeks deep within the structure, causing progressive destruction all that time.
By IICRC guidelines (www.iicrc.org, the non-profit international leader) anything more than a few square feet of wet carpet is likely to soon lead to problems such as
- Bacteria and mold growth,
- Delaminating paneling,
- Crumbling drywall,
- Warped and splitting wood framing, and
- Weakened foundation cement.
Exposed surfaces may feel dry relatively soon, but moisture likely remains deep within the structure itself.
East Brunswick, New Jersey Water Damage Restoration
It doesn’t take a flooded basement to need professional water damage restoration. Anything more than a few square feet of wet carpet or other flooring lets enough water soak into the structure to cause trouble. Mold, crumbling sheet rock, and warping wood framing can all get going in as little as 24 hours, yet with even minor flooding it can take weeks for the building to dry out. Over that time wiring can corrode and cement weakens. And even a small roof or plumbing leak leads to severe deterioration over time, often progressing completely unseen.
Putting a stop to all that requires skill and special equipment in order to eliminate excess moisture in days rather than weeks. Tailored to each situation, our flood cleaning service may involve lifting carpet, forced-ventilation drying, replacing the pad, and cleaning the carpet. For significant flooding we’ll use high-performance gear (way beyond carpet cleaners) for surface water extraction not just from flooring but from walls and ceilings as well (unfortunately, soaked acoustic tile must usually be replaced). We’ll then use refrigerant dehumidifiers and other commercial-grade equipment for structural drying.

We customize each project to exactly what’s actually needed. Wherever dampness is hiding, we’ll get rid of it before it has a chance to do much harm.
