A black banner with the word SERVPRO on it. Let SERVPRO show you why we will always be your best choice for remediation Clinton.

Clinton, we have your residents and businesses covered, we can break it down for you why.

With more than 25 years of combined experience in facets of the restoration industry, our SERVPRO team continues to grow and expand. More than just the fundamental niches of water, fire, mold, and storm recovery, Clinton residents have also been helped through natural disasters, post-construction cleaning, and biohazard recovery. Disasters do not wait for the convenient times to strike, and that is why you can expect our team members to remain active 24/7 to respond to emergencies as promptly as possible. With thousands of homes in Hunterdon County, it has become a valuable trait that We’re Faster To Any Size Disaster.

Fire

Being the fastest to traumatic situations like fire damage in Clinton homes is only part of practical restoration efforts. Our emergency services provide real-time solutions for damaged properties that seek to reduce costly secondary or continued loss effects in the house. Before proper mitigation ever starts, we can focus on damages like water losses from extinguishment efforts that can develop into microbial threats, and we can begin documenting loss for content management techniques for off-site recovery and restoration of personal belongings.

Fire damages vary from one Clinton home to the next, and that is why our SERVPRO team must stay diligently prepared for any loss effect that might exist. Continued in-house training and education through the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) ensure that we can provide our customers with the modern techniques and practices that can save time and money on already costly professional restoration.

Deodorization and soot removal are two areas after a fire in Clinton homes where our professionals can utilize advanced technologies and potent products to restore affected surfaces. From soda blasting countertops to remove light residues to agitation cleaning practices to safely remove sediment and debris without staining, we can make fire losses less time consuming and expensive to restore.

Storm

There is no calm portion of the year where severe storm events do not threaten Clinton homes. With the extreme temperature drops expected in the middle of winter to the torrential rainfall and hurricane-level systems tearing through the city, our SERVPRO professionals must stay ready for whatever damage can result. Because flooding can so readily occur after harsh weather events, a team with effective extraction and drying equipment available can benefit your property.

Extraction is one of the most challenging mitigation tasks after flood losses and storm damage in Clinton homes. Depending on the severity of the situation, we have numerous units that can work to continually pull water from the flooring of affected areas and discharge it to nearby drains. Electric sump pumps, for example, provide a continual, quiet draw of standing water without excessive power demands.

Containment and decontamination practices can help to protect exposed surfaces and contents of your Clinton home from potential bacteria, microbes, and foreign substances that exist in standing floodwater. Our technicians can utilize potent cleaning and antibacterial products to eliminate microorganisms on exposed surfaces while drying gets underway.

Mold

Mold can result from several sources in your home, and that is what makes initial scoping of the jobs so essential. Our SERVPRO project management can dictate the extent of moisture damage and its location in a Clinton home so that the appropriate measures get taken to reduce humidity, dampness, and other catalysts to microbial growth. Long-term solutions can begin with a proper diagnosis of the cause of dampness.

The cleaning and deodorization phases of remediation can be among the longest-lasting and vital of the entire process. Colonization in your Clinton home can emit a harsh, musty odor that penetrates walls and materials, moving considerable distances from areas of highest mold concentration. Our thermal fogging, hydroxyl machines, air scrubbers, and ozone generators can all play different roles in improving the indoor air quality from a higher volume of mold spores as well as reducing the presence of pungent odors.

Remediation is an intricate process and requires unique and advanced technologies. Clearing surfaces of surface mold can often noticeably reduce harsh odors and the concentration of active spores. Soda blasting and other abrasive cleaning tactics can remove mold colonization in Clinton homes without damaging the host material, while simultaneously helping to reduce the emission of odors and volatile organic compounds.

Water

The first 48 hours of a water loss incident are the most critical for recovery. During this period, water damage is still mainly on the surface of the materials and contents of your Clinton home. Surface moisture and water are the simplest effects to remedy with our extractors and rapid drying solutions. Once this moisture has penetrated materials and saturated through its composition, it can become more challenging to preserve these installed elements.

Drying out water damage in Clinton homes relies on our large inventory of air movers, dehumidifiers, and specialty moisture removal tools. Our experienced professionals can balance the presence of these tools to ensure that materials do not become overly dried and damaged from the other side of this spectrum. Consistent monitoring can help in this process, which includes detection devices such as surface moisture meters, thermography, and probing moisture detectors. Maintaining an understanding of our progress can ensure that our team is always doing everything possible to maintain our set restoration pace.

Many water losses require controlled demolition and reconstruction, and our SERVPRO professionals can help with focused cleaning efforts after these phases. Effective cleaning processes after drying, including vacuuming, wiping down surfaces, and deodorization can be vital in making one of these emergencies “Like it never even happened.” Residues are another concern that can lead to permanent staining if not addressed promptly with premium cleaning agents in Clinton homes.

As a local team of professionals capable of responding quickly to an emergency that affects your Clinton area home or business, we have a stronger chance of helping our customers before the situation has reached extremes. With our level of experience and continued training in the restoration niches, you can count on our SERVPRO of Greater Hunterdon County team for a focused and confident approach for almost any threat your residence faces.

Let us break down our cleaning process for your Lebanon water damage. 

Because we have such a fast response to water damage emergencies in Lebanon homes and businesses, we can offer a nearly total project management solution beginning with the dispatch of our team after your initial call. Cleaning up after a water loss incident involves many careful steps taken in a specific order.

Part of our successes in both fire and water cleanup for Lebanon homes can get attributed to the growing line of SERVPRO cleaning products. Cleaning agents, disinfectants, deodorization solutions, and more are accessible to our entire team as needed when restoring compromised residences. With debris and residue removal being such a necessary effort after water loss incidents, we can utilize several types of cleaning products to help. 

Sanitizers

These are an important element used by our SERVPRO team to regulate bacteria, contaminants, and even microbial presences within set limits. We comply with the specific regulations set in place by local health authorities and the state of New Jersey to exceed minimum safety levels.

Detergents 

Cleaning surfaces is more than removing the microorganism threats that they face. Clearing stains and present residues can protect the surface underneath, and even improve its look beyond preloss condition. We have specific products for clearing hardwoods, tile, and other materials commonly found in area homes.

Biocides

No matter how long water damage remains in your home, our SERVPRO professionals must address the possibilities of mold and microbial growth. The first two days are critical for drying efforts, but treating surfaces with microbe-controlling biocides can limit the development of colonies so our professionals can get the water loss situation under control.  

As challenging as any water loss scenario might be, our team of cleaning technicians can help to return your home to its original condition. You can trust our SERVPRO of Greater Hunterdon County team to have the potent cleaning and disinfection products that make water emergencies “Like it never even happened.” Give us a call today at (908) 788-8770.
