Figures of people standing in the dark in front of a fire. We know exactly what your Whitehouse Station home needs after a fire, let us take on the fight.

Let SERVPRO fight your Whitehouse Station home fire.

Flames and smoke from a fire tends to burn or stain many items found in your Whitehouse Station home, often causing what seems like irreversible damage. However, with the help of an Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Technician (IICRC), there are many ways to limit the losses you might experience. 

When fire damage occurs in your Whitehouse Station home, dealing with what is left after the flames go out can be devastating, especially if left unaddressed for too long. You need to understand your options, act fast, and work with a professional early to protect your property correctly. 

Understand that the heat produced by flames radiates throughout the area, causing surrounding items to lose moisture, crack, shatter, or even melt. SERVPRO has a highly trained team of restoration specialists available 24/hrs a day, 7/days a week, who respond, We're Faster To Any Size Disaster, — offering quality solutions designed to adjust to your specific situation.  

Smoke and fire residues act like acid, eating away at the various surfaces found in your home, long after the flames subside. A properly trained Fire & Smoke Damage Restoration Technician (FSRT), like those offered at SERVPRO, can help you assess current damages and create a custom mitigation plan to help restore all fire-related damages found on your property. 

SERVPRO technicians can help you determine which of your affected items should receive cleaning or whether it is more feasible to discard and replace. We work hard to help you keep costs associated with your claim lower than you might expect and keep you informed throughout the restoration process. Our team also can assist you with the paperwork associated with your claim and communicates with your insurance company regularly, when appropriate.

At SERVPRO, we witness many incidents where homes become completely ruined by smoke, even though the majority of the building remains untouched by flames. Even if you put out the smallest fire as quickly as possible, smoke damage can still occur, often creating an uncomfortable and unsafe environment. We can improve the indoor air quality IAQ to restore your home to its preloss condition.

Never settle for less, get the quality services you deserve, by calling our office at SERVPRO of Greater Hunterdon County. We remain steadfast in our vision of providing quality cleanup and restoration services to every member of our surrounding community. (908) 788-8770

Preserving Construction Materials with Fast Drying in Flemington 

No matter the size or severity of a water loss incident that occurs in your Flemington home, failure to respond quickly can result in widespread and significant damages. Protecting the structural integrity of your home and its installed construction materials is a priority that homeowners share with our responding technicians, as we have premier equipment and techniques that can help to maintain many exposed elements with fast-drying solutions.

As overwhelming as water damage in Flemington homes might initially seem, the response to this emergency is what determines how widespread the loss becomes. Our SERVPRO team is on call for water loss incidents 24/7, ensuring that qualified professionals and the top-tier restoration and recovery equipment we have are en route shortly after a customer makes the first contact with our office. We’re Faster To Any Size Disaster, and that is as true in the middle of the day as it is in the middle of the night.
 
Elements like drywall can be particularly susceptible to moisture exposure and direct saturation, often leading to bloating and distortion in as little as 24 hours. To protect the sheetrock walls of your home, our technicians strategically position air movers, dehumidifiers, and even positive pressure systems like our Injecti-Dry unit. We are skilled and nimble to maintain three fronts for the rapid drying of open areas and structural cavities.
 
Flooring is another area of your home that becomes uniquely susceptible to migrating moisture and water loss effects. Despite the speed with which our technicians can arrive to begin extraction and drying solutions for the wet areas, specialized tools like drying mats might still be necessary to draw out moisture from materials like hardwood flooring. With the combined efforts of these mats and moisture meters, we can maintain the ideal humidity levels for the wood flooring to prevent unnecessary removal and reinstallation. In crawlspace structures, we also check to make sure that the floor joists and supports contain acceptable moisture content levels. If not, we can set the equipment up to complete the drying task.
 
Protecting construction materials throughout your home is a priority of our SERVPRO of Greater Hunterdon County team. With our experience in the industry combined with our extensive inventory of cutting-edge equipment, we can help to make water loss incidents, “Like it never even happened.” Give us a call today at (908) 788-8770.
