Who Knew There Would Be So Much Water After a Fire in East Brunswick -- and Who Can Help Get Rid of It?
The Need for Fast Water Removal Is the Norm for Fire Damage Scenarios -- Our Expertise in Both Water and Fire Damage Recovery Is Why SERVPRO Is a Preferred Disaster Contractor in East Brunswick
It is a rare residential fire scene in East Brunswick that does not include significant water damage. Despite its prominent role in eradicating a home fire, the urgent need to contain and remove water can be shocking to homeowners already overwhelmed with other parts of the fire’s aftermath. Fortunately, our multi-certified managers and work crew members master both water and fire mitigation and remediation skills during the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) training. Our commitment to leading-edge employee training is why we are sought after by area residents during a crisis.
Why Does Water Removal and Structural Drying Move to the Top of the Fire Damage Response Agenda?
Water incursions complicate East Brunswick fire damage recovery, presenting significant safety concerns needing solutions before fire residue cleanup proceeds. The hazards presented by firefighting water include but are not limited to:
- Structural weakening when water collects in cavities such as those between walls and above ceilings
- Slip, trip, and fall risks
- Electrical shock risks
- Contamination exposure, including contact with biohazards such as asbestos and lead, revealed during mitigation or remediation
- Mold growth if water remains unremediated for 24 to 48 hours or more
Can Fire Damage Cleanup Happen Concurrently with Water Removal?
Every situation is different, but we can adjust our workforce to have some technicians responding to the water concerns while at the same time, others begin the evaluation of and planning for fire residue removal. Employees with well-rounded dual water and fire restoration resumes are why SERVPRO is a good fit for most homeowners.
