What Information Does SERVPRO Collect in the Job Scoping Phase?
Available 24 hours a day/seven days a week, SERVPRO of Toms River responds quickly to your Toms River business’s fire and water damage emergency.
The job scoping phase for business is one of the vital efforts that our SERVPRO of Toms River team begins as soon as we arrive. This inspection and evaluation of the property help us determine the structure's condition and what must get done to restore it. Careful documentation and readings get conducted during this phase to ensure that all parties, including our fire restoration professionals and the insurance adjusters, know what to expect when restoration and mitigation efforts begin shortly after that. Job scoping seeks to determine:
- Environmental Conditions – The conditions in the environment can vary from one fire-damaged structure to the next. Often, circulating particles like soot can have hazardous effects on those exposed. Air quality control, as well as many different emergency services, must occur before other restoration actions can take place.
- Content Damage – Because your shop is your livelihood, you are often concerned with how damaged your stock and wares have become. Careful evaluation on an item-by-item basis can help designate which corrective actions can happen on-site in which your content needs restoring in our nearby warehouse.
- Structure Damage – There is no mistaking how destructive fires in Point Pleasant Beach can be to the building itself. Structural damage must get addressed as soon as possible because breaches in the building's envelope affect how efficient and thorough restoration actions like cleaning, drying, and deodorization can be.
- Estimated Costs – Job scoping is also vital for our project manager and crew chief to determine the work's estimated costs. Documentation of the damage and the corrective actions needed to recover the property helps the insurance company designate the appropriate amounts for the restoration of the building and its affected items.
Whether you need water or fire damage cleanup, mold removal, storm or flood cleanup, sewage and bio-hazard cleanup, professional cleaning services or Covid-19 cleaning services, SERVPRO of Toms River handles it all.

How Do SERVPRO Tools Accelerate the Restoration Process?
Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC)-accredited technicians at SERVPRO are not only trained to adhere to restoration industry guidelines. They also receive extensive training and education in using both sophisticated technologies and tried-and-true techniques for home disaster mitigation. These tools include the following:
- Sophisticated moisture measurement technologies, such as calibrated sensors and meters, and thermal imaging, help establish structural drying goals and determine water damage locations behind walls, above ceilings, and under floors.

- OSHA approved cleaning solutions that aid in the remediation of microbes and unpleasant odors from water damage.

What Are the Causes and Signs of Ceiling Water Damage?
There are many ways that ceiling water damage can befall a Toms River home, including the following:
- Pipe leaks and burst pipes.
- Appliance leaks in upstairs rooms or attics, including the HVAC system.
- Bathroom leaks or waterproofing failures.
- Refrigerator or dishwasher leaks.
- Washing machine failures.
Finding the source of leaks and mitigating the water damage is a highly involved process that requires specific tools to accomplish. Homeowners are advised to contact a trusted restoration firm for your mitigation and restoration needs. SERVPRO performs this service 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year, including weekends and holidays, to minimize structure and contents damage and microbial growth resulting from moisture exposure.
What Should Homeowners Do If They Notice Their Ceiling Is Sagging?
Toms River homeowners with sagging ceilings should go through these steps to quickly remediate damage to their home:
- Stabilize the leaking area of the ceiling. Move the contents of your home away from the leakage area where possible. Catch the water with a bucket or other deep, nonporous container. Consider adding a tarp to prevent damage to your carpet.
- Locate and identify leaks causing the sagging. This process can be challenging because water damage can manifest quite a ways away from the leak source. Porous materials like drywall can absorb significant amounts of moisture. If you are concerned about a leak, look for the following common signs of water leaks in your home:
- Missing caulk
- Broken or cracked pipes
- Leaky drains or supply lines
If you are unsure of the source of the leak, shut off your water main and contact a licensed plumber. Keep any documentation you receive from repair professionals for your insurance claim
- Contact a restoration team as quickly as possible for mitigation. Restoration technicians like those at SERVPRO receive extensive training in structural water damage cleanup and drying. Other services rendered include odor control, sanitation with EPA-registered biocides, and mold remediation that can improve the safety and indoor air quality of your property.
Do SERVPRO Structural Drying Tools Work for Ceilings As Well?
SERVPRO tools do accomplish structural drying for water-affected ceilings. This process typically involves removing the drywall that is sagging so that technicians can replace it with a fresh installation after repairing the damage. Depending on the leak’s location, partial removal of drywall may also be necessary to circulate air from air movers above the ceiling or underneath the subfloor above the leak. This process also allows dehumidifiers to capture moist air and eliminate it from the property.
SERVPRO of Toms River keeps disaster-affected homes looking, “Like it never even happened.” Call (732) 349-9898 to begin the mitigation and restoration process at any time of the day or night.

What Caused the Mold in My Toms River Basement?
As soon as signs of mold colonies get found, call SERVPRO of Toms River at (732) 349-9898 for expert mold remediation.
SERVPRO techs can diagnose the reason and establish a plan of action for handling mold infestations in Toms River properties
The majority of basements, finished or unfinished, have poor ventilation, and being below grade tends to easily lean towards being a moister environment than the rest of a Toms River home. Once an infestation begins, it needs professional mitigation, or chances are it will not get better. There are only three critical elements that mold needs to invade a home successfully:
• Sustained air moisture levels over 50%
• Organic materials to consume such as wood or paper
• Temperatures over 70 degrees Fahrenheit for optimum growth
What Can I Do About Mold in My Basement Bathroom?
When bathroom facilities get installed in a Toms River basement, the need for mold remediation may arise. One of the main reasons for this is the need for an injection pump to replace gravity that works for toilet flushing on upper levels in a home. Diligence is needed for these hardworking pieces of equipment because if they develop a leak, the already moist air conditions create a perfect environment for mold growth, which can spread rapidly across sheetrock. It is a good idea to perform an inspection monthly to ensure small leaks get handled before they become big problems in the home.
Necessary Actions for Cleanup From Mold Damage
Once sheetrock has a mold infestation, it requires removal as it has no potential for restoration through cleaning. The techs carefully cut off the damaged portions and expose the framework underneath for drying, cleaning, and the application of antimicrobial sealant as needed to inhibit the reestablishment of any colonies post-mitigation.
As soon as signs of mold colonies get found, call SERVPRO of Toms River at (732) 349-9898 for expert mold remediation. The techs have extensive training in the safe handling of this type of infestation and can restore your home to its preloss condition.
