Water Damage in Local University

Living with roommates can have its ups and downs. Each person has to adjust to the other person's idiosyncrasies. One thing that definitely will not help the relationship blossom is water damage in your dorm room! This was exactly the case wit a local university. There was water damage in one dorm room that eventually effected multiple other units in the facility. Water left untreated can lead to mold, which is a health risk. We care about our local universities and the students that make them up. Pictured here is the moisture reader reading a 99.9% water in the dorm room. SERVPRO of Hoboken/Lower Manhattan consistently monitored the moisture readings to make sure we removed all the water from each dorm room. We make it "Like it never even happened."

We'll Fix Your Frozen Pipes

Although the frosty breeze and sparkling snow can be breathtaking during winter, there are risks we must be aware of. Winter can be enchanting but this is the season where frozen pipes can be an awful disaster. This change in weather can cause temperatures to drop to extremely low levels and can cause pipes in your home to freeze and burst. If pipes are not properly insulated or if there are cracks or gaps where the pipe enters your home, this can cause the pipes to freeze easily. During the dramatic temperatures, water freezes and expands continually and eventually the pipes can burst. Be sure to maintain and check your pipes regularly to help avoid these situations. If you find yourself in this position, you can contact our location at SERVPRO of Hoboken/Union City and we will be glad to provide our services. You can call twenty four hours a day seven days a week, we're #heretohelp. 

Sewage Draining Cleanup

Our crew here at SERVPRO of Hoboken/ Union City work day in and day out to provide our customers with the best service to ensure the best results. One of our clients had a case of sewer damage and called us to help with the problem. You can see in the picture where most of the damage had taken place. The sewage reached a couple of inches, which is never a good thing. Our crew set up a draining system with trash pumps that moved the sewage from the property and placed it where it belongs, in the sewer. These types of jobs are never the prettiest but our crew is trained well and knows exactly what to do in these circumstances. Our client was very pleased with the results they received.

While water is vital to our existence it can lead to a number of issues. Too much water is definitely a problem many individuals face on a day to day basis. Here at SERVPRO of Hoboken/ Union city we've seen a great deal of flood incidents. Pictured in the photo you see the ceiling panels beginning to slouch down as a result of flooding. The water is absorbed by the panels and if not treated properly can lead to a case of mold (which is another service SERVPRO provides). Our crew went into this job with the acquired skill that comes with doing this so often. They removed all the water from the job and then worked from there. The owner of the building was thrilled that we could fix as much as we did.
