SERVPRO of Dover/Stillwater is Available 24/7 to Assist with Flooding Cleanup to Lessen the Onset of Secondary Damage

Located along the Rockaway River, Dover is a town within the Morris County region within the state of New Jersey. Situated a little over 30 miles to the west of New York City, NY, this town has a population of just over 18,000, according to 2010’s United States Census. Overall, the town of Dover is mostly a minority community, with roughly 70% of the population being of Hispanic descent.

Dover is Rich with History

In 1713, Joseph Latham was given the deed to the land that is now known as Dover, New Jersey. This came from parcels of land purchased from local Native Americans during the acquisition of West Jersey. In 1722, Mr. Latham and his wife deeded over 500 acres to a man from Flushing, New York, by the name of John Jackson. Jackson took to settling on an eastern portion of his land situated on Granny’s Brook. This is the site that would eventually turn into Park Heights Avenue at the Ross Ribbon Factory location.

Incorporated back in 1869 as a town in Randolph Township, Dover then became totally independent in March 1896. In May of 1896, Dover then received reincorporation as a city. Throughout Dover, early years saw immense popularity with mining iron ore. Many points along the Mine Hill area at Dickerson Mine is where a majority of the local iron ore was harvested. The iron ore was then taken to Jackson’s Forge, where it would get processed into bar form, then taken off to industrial areas like Paterson, New Jersey, and other locations for purchase.

Throughout the past, Dover thrived from an economic standpoint with avenues such as:

  • Bridge works
  • Mill works
  • Stove works
  • Range works
  • Furnace works
  • Machine shops
  • Drill works
  • Rolling mills
  • Silk mills
  • Knitting mills
  • And more

  • JFK Memorial Commons Park – As a popular park and gathering spot for locals, JFK Memorial Commons Park is home to the annual Christmas Tree Lighting ceremony, Halloween parades, Easter egg hunts, town parades, ceremonies, and summer concerts. The park took on the name after the assassination of President John F. Kennedy that took place in 1963.
  • Mountain Park – Located on the historical Munson Mine Tract, this park in South Dover is quickly becoming a hot spot for some of the best hiking trails in the area.

Only a Professional Water Restoration Technician Can Restore a Dover Office Building After its Bathrooms Malfunction

Office buildings in Dover are often the home of several businesses, and any disruption in operations can affect the bottom line of more than one enterprise. The sooner a water restoration team goes into the building and assesses how far the water is seeping into walls and carpeting, the quicker the restoration project can begin. More than ever, it is crucial that the team taking care of the issue is knowledgeable in water remediation and has the equipment to work efficiently.

Calling SERVPRO for water removal services in Dover is the best decision any business owner can make. Not only is our staff certified by industry experts, but we are also quick to respond to your call with our 24-hour crew. As soon as the issue happens, we travel to your office building and evaluate the damage while implementing barriers to protected unaffected areas. Our goal is to mitigate your loss and coordinate for repairs as quickly as possible.

Are industrial fans enough to dry a commercial space?
Your initial instinct may be to rent the most potent fans and ventilators you can find to dry the bathrooms and surrounding areas and make the water disappear. Even though this is a sound approach, it may not be enough. Our SERVPRO staff can provide the necessary air circulators, dehumidifiers, and extractors to control humidity, but our work goes beyond water extraction. Some of the dangers of water include:
    •    Weakening of drywall
    •    Residual water that creates a favorable environment for mold growth
    •    Compromising flooring including carpets and laminate

When you call a professional team, you ensure that possible ramifications of excess humidity, including structural consequences and esthetic, are reviewed, and a restoration plan is developed accordingly.

Why is Fire Damage so Tough to Clean?

10/22/2020 (Permalink)

fire damaged foyer Although this fire was confined to the foyer, the smoke and soot damage throughout the house was significant.

SERVPRO Fire Restoration Technicians in Dover Face Many Different Challenges when Tackling a Recent House Fire. We Undergo Specific Training and Qualification for Cleaning a Fire-damaged Structure

Why are smoke residues different throughout the home?

Fires cause hundreds of chemical reactions in your Dover home. How these different interactions occur can be an influential factor in the type of losses found in a home. There may be any combination of wet smokes, protein fats, grease residues, or odor-causing particles in a fire loss site. SERVPRO technicians are on hand to help you recover from a home disaster. Whether using our knowledge and testing equipment to produce a time estimate or using industry-leading equipment to restore precious items, we are confident of returning your home to its preloss condition.

Can moisture affect the number of fire losses?

  • Moisture can cause residues like dry smoke to set into surfaces, particularly textiles or soft furnishings like mattresses.
  • Sprinklers or other fire-fighting equipment can make a fire loss site much harder to restore and requires immediate mitigation.
  • Damp in the property or condensation can further complicate a fire loss site.

Why are there splatter effects on some areas of the home after a fire?

The splattering effect of that can be found during fire restoration in your Dover home results from impingement. Impingement can occur when air-movement reaches high velocity, and smoke rushes through the property. As smoke residues collide with walls, they leave behind a splatter effect. SERVPRO technicians can pre-test these residues to understand the type of soiling and pH balance of the residue. Using chemical agents and solvents, we can dissolve these stubborn soots and rinse the wall using a detergent. Sometimes, odor sealants are applicable and can provide a clean base paint for wall repainting.

What factors affect cleanability in fire restoration?

  • The age of surfaces can play a role, with older ones typically becoming more porous and more susceptible to smoke infiltration.
  • Air-pressure can lead to driven smoke due to the expansion of hot air within a property. Driven smokes can penetrate surface layers of walls or paintwork.
  • Temperature changes can cause oily smokes to form a film across surfaces, making them resistant to water-based cleaning agents.

The different types of smoke damages can affect surfaces' cleanability and require dedicated restoration technicians to clean appropriately. Contact SERVPRO of Dover / Stillwater at (973) 810-2825.

Does SERVPRO Test for Specific Types of Mold during Office Mold Inspection?

10/16/2020 (Permalink)

"Mold Inspection" If mold is left unchecked, it can spread very quickly. Contact our IICRC certified mold damage remediation team for an assessment today.

Dover Entrepreneurs are Concerned about Mold Inspection Results.

Building maintenance can eat up a large chunk of any Dover business’ budget. Building maintenance includes fixing leaking pipes or dripping faucets, window cleaning, clearing out gutters, and even employing a regular cleaning crew to keep the office spick and span.

Dealing with fungus is an essential part of building maintenance. Mold inspection in Dover companies helps keep buildings free from mold and its potentially damaging effects:

  • Mold looks unsightly and creates an unpleasant working environment
  • Mold can cause health effects
  • Mold can damage everything from office furniture to walls, ceilings, and insulation

Mold spreads rapidly throughout a building. The microscopic spores quickly become airborne, travel on employees’ clothes, or get into the HVAC system. That is why it's important to call SERVPRO of Dover / Stillwater if you suspect fungus in your office. If you do not see visible signs but can smell a moldy smell, that is still reason enough to call us. We will get back in touch within an hour to arrange a site visit, and our expert technicians will assess the situation and let you know the best course of action.

It is better to get an expert opinion than to run the risk of mold spreading and causing more costly problems further down the line. Meantime, encourage your staff to stay away from the mold and do not attempt to clean it.

What sort of mold grows in an office?

Many common types of fungus thrive inside commercial buildings. Here are five of the most common – and where to look for them.

  • Trichoderma is a green and white woolly-looking mold. It typically grows on wet surfaces, including damp wallpaper and carpet and other fabrics such as upholstery or drapes. You can also find it in HVAC systems that have a buildup of moisture.
  • Mucor grows in thick white or gray patches. Mucor mostly thrives around air vents and HVAC systems that have a sheen of condensation to provide moisture.
  • Cladosporium is a green or brownish mold with a suede-like look. Cladosporium grows in fabrics such as carpets or upholstery, and can also hide under floorboards.
  • Alternaria is a prevalent type of indoor mold, which is deep green or brown, with velvety-looking growth. It thrives in damp areas, so look for it under sinks or around faucets.
  • Aureobasidium is a pink or brownish mold, which sometimes darkens to nearly black as it ages. It is most commonly found hiding behind wallpaper, and also grows on painted or wooden surfaces.

Of course, you should also be on the lookout for Stachybotrys. This is what people usually mean when they talk about “black mold.” Stachybotrys appear as black or deep green patches of mold with a slimy texture. It thrives in moist, damp areas, and is particularly likely to grow on paper (including wallpaper), cardboard, and wood.

Does SERVPRO test for specific mold types?

In most cases, we do not need to send spores away for sampling and confirmation of the mold type. The mold remediation process is the same for all fungus types, so knowing the specific species is not usually necessary. However, if your office has extensive mold growth, it might be required to test the spores to help figure out why the problem is so bad. A third party expert carries out mold testing – if testing is needed, SERVPRO can find and liaise with a mold testing company on your behalf.

What tests will SERVPRO carry out?

As discussed above, some mold species are hard to spot and might hide behind wallpaper or floorboards. That is why visual inspection alone is not enough. We use a range of moisture meters and other instruments to measure moisture in carpets and walls, and measure humidity. Our tests give a clear indication of the extent and pattern of both mold and water, which is a vital component of mold propagation.

What happens after mold inspection?

After inspection, SERVPRO technicians carry out mold remediation. We:

  • Set up containment to keep the spores from escaping
  • Scrub, wipe, and vacuum away visible mold
  • Use media blasting if appropriate, for a fast and effective result
  • Use air movers and dehumidifiers to dry the area

Drying is vital because if there is still moisture, the mold can quickly re-grow. We also deodorize your office to leave it fresh. If you are concerned about mold in carpets, drapes, or office furniture, we can deal with cleaning and replacing these as necessary. We can also assist with re-painting, hanging new wallpaper, and fixing any structural damage caused by the fungus.

An Old Water Pipe Burst and Caused Water Damage in a House. Who Can Help to Restore it?

9/18/2020 (Permalink)

Piping and tools Homeowners have to deal with many things which may include water damage from a burst pipe. Contact SERVPRO right away for assistance.

Talk to SERVPRO Technicians to Help Perform Water Extraction in Dover Properties. 

Water is among the substances that can potentially cause substantial destruction in Dover homes. Property owners that have suffered severe water leaks should engage with professional restorers to extract water from their property. SERVPRO technicians can stop water from seeping deeper into various surfaces and get your property back to the original condition it was in.

What is water extraction?

Water extraction in a Dover home is a process where technicians remove standing water from the structure and dry the affected surfaces. We have experienced technicians who specialize in water extraction to prevent additional damage after a water intrusion incident occurs. During the process, our goal is to minimize water damage but also:

Minimize the chances of permanent damage.

Prevent mold growth that can pose serious health effects.

Restore your property to its pre-damage state.

Why should I hire SERVPRO?

Before getting in contact with the affected surfaces, it is essential to note that standing water from a burst pipe can cause health issues. As the water flows on various surfaces, it gets contaminated along the way. Water has a destructive effect on a majority of contents and building materials. That is why it is best to let professionals perform water extraction and salvage your valuable items. We have the training, specialized equipment, and expertise to restore water-damaged structures. Our technicians are knowledgeable about the technical aspects of water restoration and can also communicate effectively with you, your adjuster, and the insurer.

How do you check for moisture?

When we get to your property, we find the water source and shut it down. Since water can flow into hard-to-reach areas, we can use our advanced equipment to identify areas with a high moisture level. Our technicians can use infrared cameras to see how water traveled. We can also use a luminometer to test surfaces and water for organic contamination. This information helps us develop a customized restoration plan and a detailed estimate for our customers.

How do you remove the standing water?

Water extraction is an essential process that helps speed up drying. We typically utilize specialized equipment like electric submersible pumps to remove it. Extracting excess water in the affected area helps stop the spread of primary and secondary water damage. After completing the extraction process, our technicians can dry your home thoroughly using air moving and dehumidifying equipment.

With the help of SERVPRO of Dover / Stillwater, you can have a mold-free and clean home after water damage. Talk to us today at (973) 810-2825. We’re Faster To Any Size Disaster.  

Does the HVAC System Need Cleaning After a Fire?

9/13/2020 (Permalink)

fire damaged room in a home with burned furniture Fire damage includes burned items and lingering odors. Make sure to mitigate the situation properly with a call to SERVPRO.

When fire losses occur in Hopatcong homes, damages like soot and odors can move through ducts and damage the entire system and connected rooms.

Tracking the progression of fire loss effects throughout your Hopatcong home is a vital effort for the first job scoping process. Understanding the full measure of current damage and the expected path of odors and soot before containment barriers and equipment can be installed can ensure that the right tools and products are brought into the staging area assembled near the damaged region of the property. This inspection needs to be as thorough as possible to ensure that every possible impacted area of the house has been documented.

Fire restoration for Hopatcong homes and businesses is often more intricate and involved than many property owners realize. Our objective in recovery is to restore over replacing damaged structural elements, especially when the exposed surfaces can be more valuable than the costs of removing and replacing. Essential aspects of your household can get overlooked in self-inspections by homeowners, such as the HVAC system. When this network of air ducts becomes compromised, it could be damaging to all areas of the home.

What Makes HVAC Cleaning Important?

During a structure fire, ducts can fill with hot smoke and move quickly to colder areas of your house, seeking a temperature and pressure equilibrium. This rapid movement through the system can leave the inside of these ducts heavily compromised by soot and smoke residues in Hopatcong. If you do not successfully and thoroughly clean this air circulation network before your appliance begins to run again, you can recirculate these potential contaminants and particulates throughout the house in areas that have already been cleaned and restored by responding fire restoration technicians like our SERVPRO team. A thorough inspection of the system can identify threats such as:

  • Smoke Particles
  • Soot
  • Debris
  • Odors

When Do Air Ducts Get Inspected for Damage?

During the job scoping phase where a restoration plan ultimately gets determined, and the damage to the property gets cataloged, we can assess the impact smoke and soot have had on the HVAC system. Air ducts can attract ionized and magnetized particles circulating in the air after a fire gets extinguished, which can continue to threaten this network of ducts until the appropriate measures get taken to either clean up the present damage or to seal up openings and vents into the ducts until cleaning and restoration complete in other areas of the house. The condition of the system often comes down to a few questions the evaluating project manager must ask:

  • Where Was the Fire? – Understanding where a fire spread can show where it might have entered the ducts. Determining the supply side or the return side can help to narrow where and if damages might exist within the air ducts. 
  • How Long Did the Fire Burn? – The disaster's longevity can also indicate the likelihood of residues and soils becoming a factor throughout the HVAC system. The shorter the incident, the less likely soiling occurred or became overwhelming to clean. 
  • Was the HVAC System Running? – Because conditioned air is a luxury that most homes and businesses have, it is often likely that no matter the time of year, the system runs to heat/cool the environment. The intake of dirty air from the fire loss can move through all avenues and pathways of the ducts in your home. 

When Should Cleaning Take Place?

Cleaning up your HVAC system after a fire loss involves multiple products and tools, many of which typically get used in air duct cleaning services commonly, such as drill-powered whips, brushes, and vacuums. During mitigation and restoration, the cleaning of this area of the house can begin. Approaches, products, and equipment used vary based on:

  • Type of Damage – Varying residues present different concerns for technicians, as wet smoke is thicker and more challenging to remove than dry smoke. 
  • Severity of Residues – The concentrations of these coatings can require different pre-cleaning actions for agitation, like brushing and vacuuming. 
  • Smoke Odors – Negative air chambers can often be a vital containment measure for duct cleaning, but there are also deodorizing tools like ULV foggers that can remove smoke odors trapped in the ducts.
  • Accessibilities – How readily the damaged areas can get reached and restored plays a role in the necessary recovery approaches.

Regardless of how damaged or compromised HVAC systems might become after a housefire, our SERVPRO of Dover / Stillwater team can help with efficient cleaning and recovery solutions. Give us a call anytime disaster strikes at (973) 810-2825.

There's Water In My Walls, Can Someone Help?

8/26/2020 (Permalink)

SERVPRO technician consulting with customer Water damage in your home? SERVPRO can make it "Like it never even happened."

Removing Water From Walls Is A Job For Professionals.

Water in the walls of your Dover bedroom might not seem like a pressing issue, however, without proper mitigation, the damage can seep from the walls to the rest of your room. 

How Does SERVPRO Remove Water From Walls?

SERVPRO water removal in Dover homes starts with wet vacs and portable water extractors that allow our teams to clean up water from confined spaces like your walls. Once the standing water has been removed, our technicians can begin the drying process that consists of: 

Using moisture meters, moisture sensors, and thermo-hygrometers to gauge the extent and severity of moisture in your walls. 

Drilling holes in your baseboard to allow air to flow into the damaged sections of the wall. 

Removing wallpaper from parts of your bedroom wall to assist the drying process. 

We make sure to drill holes only when necessary, and we can consult with you throughout the drying process to ensure that both you and your insurance adjustor are aware of the extent of damages. 

What If Water Leaks Onto My Bed, Can SERVPRO Save it? 

It is common for the head of beds to be against the wall. This arrangement can be problematic if water seeps out of the wall and onto your pillow and blankets. Fortunately, professionals from SERVPRO have experience with upholstery water damage mitigation. When drying damaged furniture, we can:

Treat furniture stains by wetting the furniture evenly

Extract the upholstery

Focus on drying buttons, zippers, and other metal attachments to avoid rust.

Tent your cushions and sheets around air movers and dehumidifiers to quickly dry them. 

Our teams act fast to enact these drying procedures to prevent mildew growth and permanent stains.

Without a quick restoration, your bedroom can turn into a home for mold and bacteria. To help with mitigating these risks, call SERVPRO of Dover/Stillwater at (973) 810-2825.
