East Brunswick Homes and Businesses Count on SERVPRO for Cleanup and Restoration after Mishaps

With thousands of homes and businesses that depend on the fast response of our SERVPRO team in East Brunswick when disasters strike, we have become more dedicated than ever to arriving quickly and working efficiently towards satisfactory results. As overwhelming as any disaster or loss incident can be for your home or business, how you react to the situation can dictate the restorability of many of the property’s contents and structural elements. In every restoration occurrence, we have qualified professionals accredited from the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) available to help.


Here in Jersey, we have seen our fair share of harsh winters where cold snaps can drop temperatures well below freezing for days on end. With East Brunswick homes that have inadequate insulation in their homes or around their plumbing, this can cause many hazardous situations like pipes bursting and flooding the inside of your house or ice dams building on roofs and damaging their structural integrity.

Addressing water losses begins with assessing the current conditions in your home with a visual inspection of the property. Standing water can be a destructive force in East Brunswick homes, saturating porous materials and allowing for conditions to get met for secondary effects like mold and microbial growth. Addressing moisture removal involves multiple tools and devices in our inventory, including:

  • Electric submersible pumps
  • Trash pumps
  • Extractor trucks
  • Wet vacuums
  • Carpet wands

Drying cannot be as effective in East Brunswick homes and businesses without first addressing excessive moisture and surface water present. We can then deploy multiple drying tools, namely our high-velocity air movers, to begin removing cool air barriers surrounding saturated materials and promoting a faster, even drying process.


The same harsh weather that can cause pipes to burst inside of your East Brunswick home can lead to phenomena like ice damming or roof collapse under substantially heavy snowfall. The response to these emergencies directly engages our Large Loss Recovery Team, as many of the structures here in the city have thousands of square feet that could become damaged or compromised by natural disasters. With a considerable roster of qualified IICRC-certified technicians and a nearly endless shared inventory, no job is too big for our SERVPRO team to handle.

Flooding is a typical result of structural breaches and a situation that our SERVPRO team must often address upon arrival to damaged East Brunswick properties. We roll out from our warehouse with multiple extraction options, and for natural flooding, we can often look to our gas-powered trash pumps to get this job done consistently. Clearing out surface water is only a part of the equation; however, as we must also utilize moisture detection devices to determine where focused drying attention is necessary.

One of the advantages of choosing our professionals is a seamless transition between emergency construction solutions like board up and tarping and the mitigation that your East Brunswick property needs. This same fast transition can happen after mitigation where rebuilding and reconstruction are necessary. We have a team of licensed (#13VH06622700) residential and commercial contractors to help with the reinstallation of flooring, repairing your roof, and other structural concerns after storm losses.


After a fire loss incident, there are glaring concerns for homeowners before reentering the property. You should not rush back inside to perform an inspection on your own, as both soot and smoke effects could be overwhelming and provide a hazardous environment in your East Brunswick home. Our SERVPRO professionals are prepared for these environmental changes with the appropriate personal protective equipment and soot removal practices/abrasive cleaning techniques.

Similarly, odors can also make comfortable living difficult in your East Brunswick home if the fire was not bad enough to force relocation. Smoke odors can penetrate porous materials and stay trapped in these contents and structural elements without direct involvement by restoration professionals. Our SERVPRO professionals can utilize multiple deodorizing tools to help in this regard, but one of the most effective for damaged walls and carpeting is thermal fogging. Superheating deodorization agents into a mist/fog can allow it to penetrate affected materials at a molecular level and neutralize these damaged areas.

As much as you might have wanted to take them, leaving a fire damage situation often means choosing to leave some of your irreplaceable belongings and valuables behind in your East Brunswick home. A prompt response by our SERVPRO team can help to assess the current damage to the contents of your home and the appropriate response to clean and restore these belongings as is possible. We even have off-site cleaning at our warehouse featuring advanced soot removal and deodorization.


After a disaster, it has gotten estimated that nearly half of businesses that close their doors for restoration never reopen them again, and much of this has to do with the pace of business and getting ready for reopening as quickly as possible after a fire or water loss. Regardless of the severity, we have a Large Loss Recovery Team capable of helping your East Brunswick structure through post-fire or water damage cleaning and restoration.

In the same vein, many East Brunswick businesses and commercial properties can benefit from the extensive cleaning and restoration that our team can provide without the pressing damages of a disaster. From tired-looking flooring and carpets to stains on the wall and odors in the high-traffic areas, our SERVPRO team can help.

The operating hours that you keep are times that your customers memorize and adhere to, so we can help you to reduce any cleaning concerns around these blocks of time. With a team available 24/7, we can schedule after-hours cleaning and restoration to maintain a professional and polished appearance during the day. Whether you need ongoing cleaning for your East Brunswick business or one-time thorough cleaning and disinfecting application we are ready and able to help.

No matter how we can help, from water and fire restoration to commercial cleaning and storm loss response, you can count on our SERVPRO of East Brunswick / Princeton Meadows team. Give us a call 24/7 at (732) 432-9800.
