Working with an Experienced Team can make this Stressful Process a Bit Easier to Handle 

New Jersey is no stranger to intense weather, including hurricanes and nor'easters. This wicked weather can bring high winds, rain, and flood damage to both commercial and residential properties in the local area.

When a winter storm rolled through with cold, heavy rains, causing flood damage in an East Brunswick basement home theater. The grade on the property did not direct the water away from the basement, and it entered around the windows and ran down the walls, pooling on the slab floor. 

Scoping and Priorities for Water Loss

The homeowner was concerned about their home theater projection equipment and the soundbar system in the basement and requested SERVPRO technicians remove them as quickly as possible. The techs advised the homeowner to have the electronics inspected by a qualified electrician, or they could arrange for one before the equipment got used again. 

Rapid Water Extraction

The area rug on the slab floor was heavy with water, needed the moisture removed because it could get safely taken out of the basement. The techs moved the couch in the basement and boxes of DVDs to another area of the home during the water cleanup process. After that, the removal of the rest of the water went quickly.

Drying the Basement 

SERVPRO techs take air measurements in unaffected areas of the home to determine the usual conditions to ensure a healthy environment. Through this method, drying goals get set and monitored while the air movers and dehumidification equipment runs to ensure the basement attains preset markers for air quality.
