Sewer Damage In Woodbridge, NJ

1/16/2020 (Permalink)

Equipment setup on a sewer damage. Equipment had to be set up after cleaning up of the sewage.

In our industry we require the use of certain equipment to do our job correctly.  This may include detection devices, extraction equipment, air moving and dehumidification equipment, as well as safety equipment.  Having access to the right equipment is only part of the process. 

Equipment utilization involves three levels of understanding.

  1. Water restoration technicians must be aware of the proper equipment to accomplish the job. For example, the water technician should know that a desiccant dehumidifier would be ideal for drying low evaporation materials like hardwood floors. 
  2. Technicians must know how to properly operate equipment, adhering to instructions by the manufacturer of each devise. In connection with the prior example, the technician should know to duct the desiccants’ wet reactivation air outside of the structure so the humidity inside can decrease. 
  3. The technicians must know how to effectively and efficiently operate the available equipment to dry structure and contents. In the example above, the technicians must know how to contain the floor with plastic and to duct hot, dry air (from the desiccant) to the affected hardwood floors. 

We provide training to our technicians and send them out to get their WRT (Water Restoration Technician) and ASD (Applied Structural Technician) certifications by the IICRC.  We take pride in how our technicians are trained in our field.  Therefore, SERVPRO of Marlboro/Tinton Falls is the one to call for your water damage needs.  SERVPRO of Marlboro/Tinton Falls can be reached at 732-536-7555.

Stocking up We are stocking up for the upcoming cold weather in case we loose power.

Wow we are into mid-January and the weather has been very mild so far.  But from what reports are saying we should be getting back into the bundling back up days.  With the cold coming it’s that time to make sure you are prepared.  We often forget about the little things that are needed during this time.  For example, if you are traveling during the winter you should carry a blanket in your car in case you break down and have to wait for someone to come and get you or make sure if a storm is coming have plenty of water on hand in the house in case the power goes out.  Ensure your vehicle have plenty of gas so you don’t run out in the middle of a storm and get stuck.

Water Damage In Jackson, NJ Water loss caused by power failure in a commercial building in Jackson, NJ.

Whether it’s your business or home, you should think about investing into a natural gas or liquid propane generator.  There are many benefits to having one.  In the Monmouth and ocean county area we are prone to losing power during storms.  Losing power could affect your business in many ways and end up hurting you in the pocket in the long run.  We have seen customers turn to putting in these types of generators and it helps because there is no power needed to operate them.  The purchase of one of these generators could help if you’re a restaurant and need to keep your food cold/frozen.  Depending on the business and size generator you get you might not ever lose business during the outage.  The loss of power can also cause water damage if there are sub-pump failures and having a generator will help with this.  The natural gas generators are better for the environment because they burn cleaner, so this is a huge plus to getting one.  If you do encounter a loss and haven’t decided to purchase one of these generators give SERVPRO of Marlboro/Tinton Falls a call, 732-536-7555.
