What Can I Expect from Water Damage Restoration Professionals in Toms River?
Tom River Property Owners Love SERVPRO's Full-Service Water Removal and Build Back Services
Until you experience the frustration and chaos after a burst pipe sends water throughout your home, the challenges of water loss recovery to your home are hard to imagine. Much more intense than a spill or overflow, a pipe leaking behind a kitchen wall can put not only the wall but also woodwork, floors, and cabinets at risk. Water migration is hard to follow without proper tools, but leaving water behind risks progressive deterioration of building materials and mold growth.
When Can I Expect an Assessment of My Loss?
Our trained and experienced project managers arrive within four hours to inspect and plan the mitigation and reconstruction of your Toms River water damaged home. Visual examination precedes moisture detection and metering, helping our crew map the contours of the affected area. To achieve these goals we have:
- Thermal imaging camera to discover temperature fluctuations
- Boroscopes to locate trapped water and moisture in building cavities
- Moisture meters for determining the amount of dampness
- Moisture sensors for indicating areas of wetness
After data collection, the SERVPRO crew chief creates a project plan. Emergency services proceed. Our technicians use pumps if the water is deeper than two inches and roll extractors off our service vehicles to follow-up with less volumes of standing water. In a kitchen-centric plumbing emergency, water can seep under cabinets and built-in appliances, necessitating creative strategies for removal and drying.
How Are Cabinet Drying Challenges Met?
The walls and floors behind and under cabinets can allow water to collect and also impede drying. SERVPRO technicians examine your cabinets to discover details about their construction to help prevent further issues and remediate the current damage. Backless cabinets can be opened, and holes drilled in the wall behind to release trapped water and permit access for dry, warm air during drying.
Cabinets with backs complicate both water removal and drying with additional layers of materials. Holes can be cut through the cabinet back and then through the wall to facilitate water removal and drying. Additional holes at the top of the wall might help create ventilation to speed drying.
Cutting holes in the toe-kick under the cabinet or removing these strips, combined with the use of a vent system to force dry air into the exposed space, accelerates moisture reduction to normal levels. We can utilize an injecti-dry device to facilitate this drying effort.
