Emergency Residential Water Damage Cleanup
During a water damage disaster, the water will follow the path of least resistance, seeping down to lower floors and soaking up into porous materials, including wood or sheetrock. The damage can be devastating. Possible effects of water damage include welling, warping, discoloration and delamination (or separation of flooring). The longer building materials remain damp, the greater the damage becomes, which is why it is vital that you call the professionals as soon as you experience water damage in your Bayville, NJ home.

The Drying Process
We always work diligently to complete the drying and restoration of your home as quickly as possible while still providing exceptional quality.
PHASE 1: Emergency Service
As soon as our professional crew arrives on site, they assess the damage. A project manager can provide you with a rough estimate of the cost of damage. As soon as we receive a signed Statement of Authorization from the homeowner, we begin work immediately. We identify which materials can be saved, and get to work drying those out. Depending on the damage, carpet that can be saved may be dried in place, or it may have to be lifted so the carpet pad can be removed. Commercial grade dehumidifiers and high velocity air movers speed up drying and increase the chance of saving your carpet and pad.
Job Site Inspections
To ensure best results, we monitor moisture levels regularly throughout the entire water damage restoration process. In order to do this, we require access to the property during business hours for the duration of the cleanup.
PHASE 2: Reinstallation/Cleaning
If carpeting can be restored, we will do so at this time. This may require installing new pad and restretching the carpeting. Carpet and upholstery will be cleaned, and antimicrobials and deodorizing treatments are applied throughout. Any remaining equipment will also be removed.
PHASE 3: Structural Repairs
If any strucutral damage has occurred, we repair this once the dry-out is completed. For affected walls, ceilings, or floors, removal and replacement of affected materials may be necessary. Depending on the nature of the structural damage, this phase may take place before or after cleaning.
