  • Cleaning the property with industrial-grade disinfectants, biocides, bleaches, and detergents.
  • Using equipment such as gas pumps to transport water out of the property quickly.

SERVPRO of Nutley Can Perform Fire Damage Restoration on Upholstery, Draperies, and Belongings.

Property fires can be damaging to your home and contents. Usually, homeowners use professional restoration services to repair damages and return the property to a preloss condition. SERVPRO is a local service that can help with:

  • fire damage restoration
  • smoke remediation 
  • House fire cleanup

The procedure for fire damage restoration of your Nutley home is to start from the source of a fire, where damage is at its worst, and work outwards. Hot smoke and ash can travel quickly through rooms of your home, affecting upholsteries and draperies with soiling, odors, or ash deposits. We have several treatments for restoring upholstery and draperies in your home after a fire. 

  • Soil repellents are a mitigation treatment that slows down soil absorption into fabrics allowing technicians more time to restore them.
  • Soil release agents increase the permeability of fabrics, making them more receptive to water-based cleaning products like detergent.
  • Cleaning products can sometimes remove fire retardants from furnishings. Our team can apply new fire retardants once items are restored.

Act quickly to prevent the permanent soiling of fabrics after a house fire. Contact SERVPRO of Nutley / Bloomfield for fire damage restoration at (973) 662-0062.

Water Removal After a Roof Leak

Roofing is one structure commercial facility owners do not often consider, primarily due to the long life expectancies on their roof membranes. However, when the cracks on your flat roof lead to leaks and unwanted water on the floor and fixtures of your clothing storefront, you need a commercial water removal service. SERVPRO can save your structure and merchandise from mold and other water-related ailments that can occur in water damaged structures.

When our SERVPRO team comes to you, we can get straight to work on moving and cleaning your floor, ceiling and fixtures. For drying, we can establish polyethylene chambers to contain moisture and make drying with air movers and dehumidifiers more efficient. Pooling water on your floor can be quickly picked up with wet/dry vacuums. We can also use EPA-registered disinfectants to clean surfaces and prevent the proliferation of bacteria on benches, hangers, and other items affected by water damage.

After drying, we can deodorize your store to prevent odors from developing on clothes, flooring, or in your ceiling. SERVPRO odor control technicians can use thermal foggers to emit a dry, solvent-based smoke that binds with odor-causing particles to eliminate potential smells from developing on your merchandise or structures. Before and after deodorization, ventilation box fans are utilized to both improve airflow and accelerate deodorization so that you can get back to business as usual.

The Secret to Successful Nutley Water Damage Remediation

SERVPRO Saves Contents from Water Damage

As the science of restoration advances for better remediation of water damage for contents and structures, we can help property owners experience less property damage and possessions through our proprietary methods.

Water damage in a Nutley home occurred from a burst pipe running through the ceiling over a bedroom closet. The water saturated the ceiling and nearly everything in the closet area before the homeowner had a chance to shut off the water. SERVPRO arrived quickly and removed the salvageable contents from the closet for drying and deodorization in our facility.

Water Clean Up

SERVPRO technicians always try to restore the contents of homes rather than have the homeowner replace them. Carpeting saturated in a clean water damage event does not automatically need replacing if it is cleaned quickly and professionally. This is why our technicians spend a good deal of time extracting water from carpeting and padding. Doing several passes with an extractor wand lowers the amount of time needed for drying.

A drying configuration called "floating" was used for the carpeting in the closet. One side was loosened, and an air mover was directed underneath to effectively pull all the moisture out of the padding and dry the carpet from the bottom up. As air movers force moist air to the surface, dehumidifiers capture it.

Mold is always a concern after a water intrusion. Our technicians thoroughly wipe down all surfaces affected by the water with our antifungal solutions to inhibit mold growth after drying.  This also is an effective way to neutralize odors left behind, so there are no lingering reminders of the drenching every time the homeowner opens the closet door.

SERVPRO of Nutley / Bloomfield has 24-hour emergency services at (973) 662-0062 to solve your water damage problem. We can handle any size home disaster and arrive within hours to make it "Like it never even happened."

SERVPRO Takes Care of Any Hazardous Tasks during Fire Damage Restoration in Nutley Offices

A fire in an office setting creates many unique problems, including releasing dangerous substances when electronics or other gadgets combust. Fire restoration efforts must take care of the physical damages and minimize hazardous exposure for the occupants or the work crews handling the restoration.

Addressing safety issues before embarking on fire restoration in your Nutley office is essential. A simple walk-through at the loss site can help reveal what issues need addressing before they cause any adverse effects. Before the primary restoration team starts working, our SERVPRO crew chiefs carry out such inspections. The walk-through reveals electrical hazards from frayed wires or chemical residues and even firefighting chemicals. It is such issues that readily cause bodily harm if improperly handled.

Inspection of fire loss sites is necessary under different scenarios, including:

  • Water & fire damage restorations
  • Commercial fire clean up
  • Smoke remediation

The level of difficulty in resolving fire damage might vary depending on what the inspection reveals. For instance, if electrical systems are affected, it is essential to strip all the cables down and clean electrical outlets before resuming normal office operations. Our SERVPRO technicians take various precautions, including using circuit testers to check whether wires are powered and using safety equipment such as heavy-duty gloves and rubber boots when performing the teardown.

Proper cleanup and disposal of wastes are also necessary steps. Our SERVPRO crews bring different trash receptacles to the loss site, including trash bags and wheeled cans, making it easier to separate various wastes. Dumpsters can be ordered and filled with large volumes of charred building materials and contents.

SERVPRO of Nutley / Bloomfield handles cleanup and all other necessary actions during fire restoration. Call us at (973) 662-0062 when you need assistance. We're Faster To Any Size Disaster.

How Nutley Residents Overcome Mold Damage

Microbes, including fungi, bacteria, and viruses, need three things to grow: food, water, and warmth. During wet periods of the month, central heating combined with wet conditions can cause a benign mold issue to get out of control. Microscopic spores can settle on damp surfaces and find an abundant food source in the home, including insulation, drywall, duck work, and crawl space materials. Malfunctioning sump pumps, blocked drainage, or appliances can also lead to uncontrolled microbial issues that may require professional assistance to bring back under control.

You might want to look into professional mold damage remediation in Nutley if you have a stubborn microbial issue that either presents a challenge to remove or returns days after removal. SERVPRO technicians hold qualifications from the nationally recognized Institute of Cleaning, Restoration, and Certification body. We can help you get back control of a tricky mold situation and advise you on how to avoid repeat visits. Using a wide range of chemical cleaners, antimicrobial treatments, and equipment, we can help to restore your home to its reasonable, preloss condition.

Air quality can suffer as a result of microbial growth. Mold colonies release spores into the indoor environment as well as producing unpleasant malodors. SERVPRO can bring in premium High-efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) scrubbers to help remove unwanted spores from an indoor environment. These devices are beneficial in closed areas that do not receive natural air passages or become difficult to ventilate.

Existing mold colonies can be scrubbed or scraped away, and the affected area treated with a thorough disinfectant. These chemicals help to destroy spores that are invisible to the naked eye, as well as the colonies themselves. In some situations, repainting may be necessary to restore your home to its preloss condition. SERVPRO can use antimicrobial paints to suppress odors and provide a clean, mold-resistant base layer for further decoration.

Getting rid of a troublesome mold problem is best left to the professionals. Contact SERVPRO of Nutley / Bloomfield at (973) 662-0062.

Smoke and soot can get into almost any room, including seemingly unaffected interior walls and ductwork.

If not extracted immediately with advanced cleaning solutions and procedures, it is acidic, can corrode metals, and stain just about everything porous. Our restorers can use natural fabric brightener mixed with shampoo super concentrate to remove oxidized stains from wool carpeting or surfaces made from cotton.

It is also important to remove fire odors as soon as possible since odor-causing compounds can penetrate so deeply that they are no longer removable. Incorrect procedures can push it deeper.
