Why SERVPRO is the Company You Should Hire If You Have to Deal with Water Damage this Summer

7/15/2019 (Permalink)

Water can be disastrous to your home and property when it flows unexpectedly and/or in large quantities. And the longer it sits, the worse the water damage can get.

SERVPRO of Hackensack / Little Ferry knows from helping thousands of clients, just how hazardous water can be – as well as exactly what can be done to prevent further damage and fully restore your property. Sometimes there are minor water issues you can totally fix on your own.  But sometimes the best bet for your long-term investment is to bring in professional water damage specialists, for problems big and seemingly small.

If you’re dealing with water damage this summer, here are 5 reasons why you would want to hire SERVPRO:

  1. Advanced Training

Our SERVPRO technicians have advanced training and even continuing education so that they are well prepared to deal with the contingencies that come up around water damage.

In training, our technicians learn best practices and focus on the skills and techniques that are needed to thoroughly dry, clean, and restore properties after water damage occurs, ensuring safety and a long-term solution.

  1. Professional-Grade Equipment

It’s a fact that the longer it takes to extract water and dry affected property, the less likelihood there will be to save those affected items. While you may be able to start the process with a dehumidifier and some fans, you really ought to have professional grade equipment to quickly and fully dry significant water damage.

In addition, the professionals will bring specialized testing gear, such as hydro sensors and moisture meters, which can help determine just how wet your items, floors or walls are, and what would be the most efficient drying method.

  1. Years of Experience

You may be handy around the house, but water extraction and proper restoration takes practice and know-how.  By hiring professionals, you will be getting a guaranteed experience.

At SERVPRO, our average technician has been on the job for years and has seen multiple water damage situations, so they are able to quickly assess your particular situation and put in place the most effective plan to dry your property and minimize the extent of your damage.

  1. Thorough Assessment

One of the most common mistakes property owners make is to underestimate just how bad their water damage problem is. 

Not all damage is easily visible. Beyond any obvious flooding, water may have seeped through tiny cracks and may have even gone through drywall or flooring.

Without all the right tools and training, you might miss the thorough extent of the damage.  But professionals from SERVPRO can and will follow the water problem to the source and make sure nothing is missed. 

  1. Complete Restoration

Fixing water damage is not just a matter of drying out the affected area. After drying, your property still needs to be properly disinfected for safety, deodorized, and often restored in order to be normal again.

Restoration can include everything from a new coat of paint to a thorough structural reconstruction. Our SERVPRO technicians are experienced in getting your property back to pre-damage conditions as efficiently and cost-effectively as possible.

If you’re dealing with water damage to your home or business, SERVPRO of Hackensack / Little Ferry is always here to help.  Our team of restoration experts is available 24/7 to come help you fix any size water damage issue.
