SERVPRO has Newark Covered for Fire, Mold, Water, and Storm Restoration and Remediation
Why Newark Residents Trust SERVPRO Restoration Services for Fire, Mold, Water, and Storm-related Loss Recovery
Professional home restoration services encompass emergency action as well as remediation of long-term damages. SERVPRO of Newark is here to serve the many residents in this corner of Delaware. As a restorer of private and commercial property, our primary concern is to mitigate further losses in your home before then seeking to reverse the damage. Generally, these two procedures go hand in hand to get your property back how it was before loss- what we call a preloss condition. Our trained technicians are capable of rectifying mold, water, fire, and storm-related harm caused to your Newark property. You can reach us anytime by contacting our twenty-four hour customer service team.
Fungi is a microbe that makes up a part of any home environment. As such, the complete removal of microbial growth is impossible. What we can do at SERVPRO is bring microbial growth back under control. We do this by remediating the source of mold damage in your Newark home and taking steps to ensure it does not reoccur. You may need to bring in professional, Newark-based restoration services if you discover microbial growth or notice musty odors in some areas of your home.
Our experienced team is made up of qualified mold assessment and remediation technicians. We carry the necessary licensing and equipment to combat mold growth effectively. The first concern for a restorer facing a microbial growth issue is to find the source of the problem. As a homeowner, you may have already spent time removing mold only to find that it returns within a day or two. Our restoration services here in Newark mitigate against that by investigating the source of the problem- which is usually a slow-leak, damp spot, or insulation issue.
After resolving the source of the issue using essential cavity drying equipment or plumbing repair, a SERVPRO technician can begin to reverse damages. Fabrics suffer the most from a mold infestation but, by using our Esporta washing machines, we can remove up to 99% of soiling. During the removal of mold colonies, we can set up harmful air pressure zones to prevent spores from becoming airborne during cleaning. This process ensures your mold issue does not spread to unaffected areas of the home.
Water Damage Restoration
It is common for microbial issues to be the result of a previous water damage issue in your Newark property. SERVPRO restoration services incorporate anti-microbial protection into our water restoration methods. Usually, the most effective measure to prevent long-term issues is to ensure the property is thoroughly dry. We can achieve this in your Newark home by taking regular humidity, moisture content analysis, and water meter measurements during service.
Water always migrates from wet areas to dry areas. In a water-related restoration service, SERVPRO needs to trace possible water migration. We can achieve this by using thermal imaging cameras to check inside wall cavities or underfloor without having to perform demolitions. However, if the discovery of water inside a cavity in your Newark home, it is essential for us to gain access to it and dry it properly.
Structural cavity drying does not need to be invasive or destructive. SERVPRO water restoration technicians (WRT) can use drying mats and injectidry systems for cavities. An injectidry system features several "injector" nozzles at space of four inches apart. These nozzles are attached to a hose connected to a vacuum system. By removing the baseboard and drilling small holes into the wall, we can connect the injectidry system to the wall and circulate hot air into the cavity. This equipment can be extremely effective at neutralizing potential damp spots or future microbial growth issues.
Fire Damage Restoration
When a fire starts, hot smoke containing all kinds of harmful, odorous chemicals releases into your Newark home. The rapid changing of temperatures can create air circulation, which spreads ash and soots all over the immediate area. Beyond that, smoke can travel through the home, leaving unpleasant soot deposits on walls and ceilings. Restoring fire damage in your Newark home yourself may seem like a cost-effective endeavor. However, you do risk spreading damages around without the correct cleaning methods or chemicals.
At SERVPRO, we believe a homeowner can help to correct certain damages but should also be mindful of the expertise needed to restore others. As a general rule of thumb, light vacuuming, as well as removing charred materials or debris from the property, can be helpful to a restorer. Areas where the soot deposits are thickest, like walls and ceilings, are best left to professional restoration services. Your technician can guide you in the cleaning effort of your Newark home if you would like to assist with the cleanup.
Smoke residues fall into two main categories. The first is water-based staining, while the second is oil-based. SERVPRO technicians use oil and water-based solvents to dissolve thick soots and remove them together with the solvent. The type of solvent matches the type of staining, so water-based for natural soots and oil-based for synthetic ones. SERVPRO equip technicians with a full-range of cleaning agents for use in your Newark home and are confident of restoring it to a preloss condition.
Storm Damage Restoration
Adverse weather conditions can cause extensive storm damage to your Newark property. These issues can range from broken doors, windows and roofing, to wide-spread flooding. It may be necessary in some cases for temporary relocation while restoration services are carried out at your Newark home. SERVPRO restoration services are on-hand to help guide the process from mitigation of further losses, removal of unwanted materials or floodwater, and restoration of the damage left behind.
Depending on the severity of the storm damage, third-parties may be required to perform the full restoration. These third-parties may include electricians, plumbers, general contractors as well as architects and remodelers. A SERVPRO restorer works as a connecting element between third party restoration and the mitigation of immediate losses. Mitigating efforts may include packing out your possessions for safe storage as well as removing water from the home.
We can also perform deodorization and safety inspection to secure the structural integrity of the property that allows third-parties to work there safely. The immediate aftermath of a storm exposes your Newark home to the elements or trespass. SERVPRO can prevent this by placing emergency tarps over roof cavities or performing board ups of doors and windows to prevent unlawful entry. Storm recovery can be a stressful experience for homeowners and last anywhere from a few days to several weeks. At SERVPRO, we keep in contact with you throughout service and can provide a detailed inventory of all restoration work for passing onto your insurer.
Home loss recovery projects can be frustrating, but they need not be permanent or overly expensive. For water, mold, fire, or storm-related issues, contact SERVPRO of Newark at (302) 733-7933.
