SERVPRO Provides Emergency Mitigation and Restoration Services
- Mitigation efforts are meant to prevent further damage and loss from occurring due to the existing threat, thus increasing the overall amount of work that needs to be done during the restoration itself.
- Restoration is performed on items that could not be saved by mitigation efforts, and items that were damaged before the restoration company arrived. This step is often a longer process and may involve the complete replacement of floors, roofs, walls, and other portions of your business that have been too damaged to save.
- Both are necessary to get your home or business back in order after a flood, or other disaster event, and should be performed by a professional disaster restoration company.
What Should I Do When I Notice a Water Loss?
Your Water Damage event might not be entirely avoidable, so you need to know what to do when you notice that a problem has occurred and continues to threaten the building. This immediate action can help better to protect some of the building's potentially compromised areas and can reduce irreparable damage to essential contents and equipment. Some of the initial steps that you can take in the earliest stages of water loss include:
- Move Important Documentation – One of the most critical steps that your staff can take when water loss first begins is to gather sensitive documentation and records and move them to a safe location. Migrating water can be a destructive force for these hard copies.
- Notify Our Restoration Professionals – Getting restoration professionals like our SERVPRO team moving on your disaster is also an essential initial step to take. We have staffed emergency lines running 24/7, so you can talk to a real person about the situation and pass helpful information along to our mobilizing technicians.
- Stay Out of the Damaged Space – Once water losses have spread into the main areas of the building, it is wise to keep yourself and your staff out of these areas altogether. Not only does excessive foot traffic make restoration more challenging, but with worsening water damage, these individuals could face potential health hazards like shock or slips.

We know what comes next after your property suffers a disaster storm water damage and we are prepared 24-7 with Emergency help to repair your home or business when you need us!

Summer is the season for volatile weather, SERVPRO is prepared to help restore your property after Spring storm damage
Spring and summer are notorious for producing a broad range of extreme weather, including major snowstorms, severe thunderstorms, flooding, big temperature changes and high winds. Temperatures can swing back and forth between balmy and frigid. Sunny days may be followed by a week of stormy weather. That temperature contrast fuels a strong jet stream, and in turn, highly variable weather conditions.
Spring is the time of year when many things change—including the weather. Storms can be unpredictable, we can't stop spring showers, but our team is ready to provide restoration and repairs to your home or business should it suffer from summer thunderstorms, severe winds, flooding, or other property damage disasters. There are a variety of potential property damages that you may experience. These include:
• Roof or structural damage to your walls from a fallen tree or high winds
• Broken windows from hail storms or objects thrown by heavy wind
• Lightning strikes, which could lead to a fire
• Water damage caused by loose or damaged shingles, clogged gutters, or leaking roofs
• Flooding in your basement or home
• Animal infestations caused by critters looking for shelter during the storm
Our professionals first assess the severity of the situation and determine the full extent of the storm, flooding or additional water damage. Restoring your home or business quickly, takes specialized equipment and highly skilled IICRC professionals. Our team closely inspects the flooded or other water damaged areas; measuring the moisture content, humidity, and temperature to assess the full extent of the damage. It is important to note that storm property damage emergencies are rarely mild enough to not require some form of intervention and work by our experienced technicians. Some conditions that could encourage a prompt call to our SERVPRO team are:
Standing Water – Pooling water in a damaged area can be destructive to many of the materials. Wood and sheetrock exposed to standing water can quickly absorb this water and allow for a much more rapid deterioration of the construction element.
Migrating Water – You might not always know how widespread water loss effects can be, but if water has moved beyond the surface of materials, you need the sophisticated tools of our team to identify moisture pockets and dampness beyond what the eye can see.
Hidden Damages – In the same way that water can migrate throughout your apartment, damages can exist and persist out of sight without discovery tools and positive pressure drying systems getting used.
When water damage occurs in your home or business, knowing what to do will save precious time and ultimately minimize losses to your property and building contents. SERVPRO of Old Bridge/Cranbury professionals have extensive experience repairing and restoring catastrophic water damage to countless locals in our community.

FIRST STEPS TO FIRE RESTORATION:
Isolate Fire Damaged Areas
SERVPRO professionals will start with containment to help restrict odors and debris from contaminating the air throughout the house and keep the damage contained at the source of the fire and affected areas of the home.
Water Damage Remediation
Fire suppression and rescue uses a lot of water, and it can be just as destructive to structural components and contents as the fire. Our SERVPRO professionals will take the steps needed to minimize the damage by prioritizing water extraction.
Pack-Out for Contents
Fire damage mitigation and restoration is more effective when furnishings and personal possessions are relocated to avoid continued exposure to contaminated air and debris. Our Contents Claim Inventory Service (CCIS) creates a digital listing of the affected property, very helpful when corresponding with your insurance company. Specialized contents technicians evaluate the pack-out items’ conditions and recommend and implement efficient strategies to clean, dry, deodorize, and disinfect them.
Customized Soot Removal
Smoke and soot damages are especially invasive attacking every space of your residential property, including areas far from the actual fire. The residue from the fire travels with the air coating surfaces SERVPRO will test the soot to determine which type of smoke damage occurred. The cleaning procedures will then be based on the information identified during pretesting. Quick action is crucial to minimize damages; soot must be removed before it begins etching, distorting, discoloring, and disintegrating wood, carpeting, fabric, drywall, plastic, metal, and glass.

Focus on fire safety to avoid backyard summer accidents and property damage from grills, fire pits, and candles
Summer is a fun time, family and friends gather for pool parties, and people take vacations, but Summer is also a prime time for home fires. This year as our community continues to endure the global pandemic and people are encouraged to entertain in small groups outdoors and with social distance, outside spaces will likely see more use. Much like every other type of property disaster, BBQ’s, fire pits, portable heaters, and other cooking or recreational flames can cause accidental damage.
Spring and Summer Fire Hazards can cause property damage in your backyard
Open flames are hazardous whatever time of year, the changing of the season to warmer weather brings outside spring and summer fire hazards to your backyard. Every year, there are between 350,000 and 400,000 home fires in the U.S. (according to the National Fire Protection Association). Your home is at risk of catching fire for a variety of reasons no matter what the season, knowing some common reasons for residential fire damage can be important to fire prevention. SERVPRO of Old Bridge/Cranbury has been providing property disaster cleanup and restoration service to fire damage victims for nearly 30 years, our IICRC certified fire damage restoration specialists arrive ready to rescue and recover your home and property following a fire, "Like it never even happened."
Common causes of residential fire property damage disasters:
Grilling: Nothing announces the arrival of summer like firing up the grill. In the summer months, many people grill outdoors for various holidays and barbecue dinners. In fact, 5,700 home grill-related fires occur each year.
Prevention tips: To prevent barbecue fires, check for gas leaks before use, regularly clean your barbeque, and try to create a dedicated safe barbecuing space that is free of clutter and away from children.
Fire pits/Heaters: On cool summer nights, kids and adults alike will enjoy a cozy place to gather and stay warm. Fire pits are known to be a great source of warmth and ambience. Unfortunately, due to the increase in popularity, the number of fire-related injuries and accidents is on the rise as well. The good news is that with the proper safety precautions, a fire pit can be safely enjoyed by the whole family.
Prevention tips: Before striking the match, never place a pit closer than 10 feet from anything flammable, including your house and overhead tree branches. Keep children and pets at least 3 feet away from the fire.
Electrical fires: About 2,300 residential air conditioners start fires each year. These fires are usually the result of inadequate wiring while having to deal with heavy electric loads, short circuits, or other electrical malfunctions. It’s not just the AC that catches on fire, if your AC heats up, flammable materials near your unit can catch on fire. Fires are most likely to occur when it’s hottest outside—between 2 and 8 p.m.
Prevention tips: Using fans may allow you to set your thermostat a degree or two warmer than you may have been able to stand otherwise—especially if you rotate the blades clockwise, which directs airflow downward and prevents hotter air from rising up and signaling the A/C unit to kick on.
Candles/Torches: A flickering flame is both comforting and exciting, they are guaranteed to elevate your backyard living space. Adding candles and torches can provide ambient lighting and fend off mosquitoes and other nighttime insects when used with citronella. Yet, like anything that involves a fire or open flame, it’s important to exercise caution when installing, handling, and storing these creative outdoor lighting options.
Prevention tips: It’s important to exercise caution with these lighting options, consider placement carefully, do not place torches under trees, overhangs or near other flammable materials. Position torches at least 6 feet away from the house or other structures. Never leave an open flame unattended, keep an eye on any flames and ensure they are entirely out before you go inside for the night.
Be aware of the risk of fires and prepare by checking the batteries in your smoke detectors and having functioning fire extinguishers. If you find yourself faced with a fire emergency this summer, we are here to help!

Mold colonization in commercial facilities and warehouses can quickly get out of control without appropriate mitigation, SERVPRO is here to help with mold remediation for all types of local New Jersey businesses.
Flooding and water damage most often have sweeping consequences on a commercial property, requiring many different types of property damage restoration services including water removal, demolition, deodorization, and decontamination, drying and dehumidifying and rebuilding. Whether your property just experienced a heavy rain intrusion, a common appliance malfunction or hazardous plumbing leak. Commercial water damage cleanup and restoration can be complicated, it most often requires a set of detailed steps to make sure the water is properly extracted, cleaned up, dried, and mitigated, when these steps aren’t taken, and moisture continues to plaque your building mold growth will often occur. Mold grows quickly and can spread throughout a property in as little as 24-48 hours. Any commercial property can quickly become infested with mold if a source of water is present, the key to preventing excessive mold growth is to control moisture. That’s why it’s important to act quickly if your commercial property experiences a water damage or you see any signs of hidden water damage or visible mold. SERVPRO is a leading provider of mold remediation services across the country, our mold certified technicians can assess your commercial warehouse or building to evaluate the extent of the damage and advise owners and managers of the proper steps to remediate and restore your facility, “Like it never even happened.”
Mold Damage to Your Commercial Warehouse or Building?
Mold is a microscopic, airborne fungus that exists all around us, it occurs naturally in our surroundings and usually reproduces by releasing spores into the environment. In nature, mold plays an important role in the decomposition of organic material. Mold requires both organic material and a consistent source of moisture to grow. Many materials in homes and business contain the organic materials and under the right circumstances can be conducive to mold growth. When excessive moisture accumulates indoors, drywall, wood, paneling, ceiling tiles, carpeting, insulation, paper, cardboard, fabric, upholstery and even paint will encourage mold growth. If there is a consistent water source, mold will continue to colonize and break down organic material into dusty, dirt-like matter. Neglecting mold damage for an extended period can cause unnecessary damage to your home and risk possible health effects to occupants. It’s never too early nor too late to address commercial property mold damage.
When excessive moisture accumulates inside buildings or on building materials, mold growth will often occur, particularly if the moisture problem remains unaddressed. It is impossible to eliminate all mold and mold spores in the indoor environment. However, mold growth can be controlled indoors by controlling moisture indoors.
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recommends these tips to prevent commercial property mold damage
- Ensure all leaky plumbing is fixed; Correct all noticed wet spots.
