Your Key To Success in Flood Damage Remediation in Newark

Flood damage in Newark can be exhausting if done alone. Call the remediation team SERVPRO today for help.

Seasonal Storms Bring Flood Damage to Newark

Fierce storms rage across Delaware in spring and summer, threatening your Newark home with straight-line winds and tornadoes. Heavy precipitation overwhelms storm drains, forcing backups into basements. One storm follows another, dumping rain on the same area several times over a short period. Flash flooding and significant seepage into residence lower levels then occurs. Professional flood mitigation and remediation is a must.

Newark flood damage needs fast action to avoid structural deterioration and to manage water contamination. Our managers and technicians master the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) training to learn the best practices to restore your flooded house. 

Storms often knock out your electricity, but SERVPRO uses gas-powered pumps for water two inches or deeper and truck-mounted extractors connected to onboard generators for final water evacuation. Our service vehicles stock the water removal and structural drying equipment needed to contain and dispose of floodwater and then dry out the wet spaces. As our crew moves the water out, we use thermal imaging to locate any large caches of fluid migrating into building cavities during the flooding. If needed, our crew makes flood cuts, sawing through and pulling out wet drywall from the floor level up to several inches above the waterline.

The flood cuts open access to trapped floodwaters and enhances the reach of warm, dry air circulating when we set up the drying perimeter. After SERVPRO cleans and disinfects the wet surfaces with EPA-registered products, our Applied Structural Drying (ASD) technicians design a drying plan based on the recorded moisture levels of structural components in the flooded space. 

Air movers and heaters dry the air so that moisture absorbed into building materials vaporizes. Our high-efficiency dehumidifiers condense or absorb the vapor for collection and removal outside of your home. Once we meet the drying targets SERVPRO rebuilding specialists can replace and repair the storm damage and the structures we tore out to remove the water. 

SERVPRO of Newark has the trained technicians and equipment to return your storm-damaged home from chaotic and flooded to  “Like it never even happened.” We answer customer calls round the clock at (302) 733-7933.
