SERVPRO’s Extensive Experience Delivering Water Removal Services Leads to Better Understanding of Damages

In your house, there are sections such as the floors where personal preferences largely influence the choice of material. For instance, you might opt for hardwood, tiles, carpet, or laminated wood. You may only realize the hidden merits or demerits of your choice when there is a significant water leak in your Morris Plains home.

Materials are vulnerable to moisture exposure in different ways. Therefore, the water damage in your Morris Plains homes may also depend on how you react after the intrusion. Some materials, such as carpets tend to absorb moisture quickly but can be fully restored through drying. On the other hand, laminate wood flooring is not restorable once it absorbs significant moisture. If you call SERVPRO immediately after the water spills, we can give you advice on how different materials are likely to behave so that you plan the response better.

Broad experience helps in dealing with many of the water-related situations that arise, including:

  • Water clean up
  • Leaking roof from storm
  • Ceiling repairs from water damages

SERVPRO plans the right response depending on the materials you have in the affected sections of your home. For instance, in the case of laminate floorboards or laminated wood veneer and particle boards in cabinets, we prepare for a controlled demolition to remove the affected materials and to refinish the areas. 

Carpets are readily restorable by cleaning and drying. However, our SERVPRO technicians may need to remove the carpet and replace the pad for faster drying and to prevent secondary issues such as mold

SERVPRO of East Central Morris County has the right solutions for water damage regardless of the materials you have at your property. Call us at (973) 887-9100 to help you resolve any issue, “Like it never even happened.”
