SERVPRO Helps Local Dover Properties With Flood Damage
Dover Residents Trust SERVPRO for Handling Flood Damage
As an incorporated town in New Jersey, Dover has a small population of only 18,000 inhabitants. It does, however, have an abundance of engaging venues for both visitors and locals to take in.
The Dover Little Theatre
Dover's number one destination is not a historical monument or even a park; it is a theater. The Dover Little Theatre has been a fixture in the town since 1933, when the Dover Women's Club sought to establish a year-round place for performances for the community to enjoy. This small 100-seat venue averages five mainstage productions per season and uses local talent for:
- Set creation
The Baroque Orchestra of New Jersey
The Baroque period of music was most popular during the 16th century, with dynamic, gallant tempos and symphonies being its trademark sound. The Baroque Orchestra does not limit itself to a single musical genre and places many diverse genres. The orchestra has a four-season concert calendar and even incorporates some modern new classical compositions into their performances. The troupe has a home base established in the historic Dolan Performance Hall in 1996, where attendees can take in chamber music, cabarets, operatic performances, or enjoy the summer music fest.
Great Golfing in Dover
Picatinny Golf Club has been a part of the area since 1921. This 18-hold championship course offers multiple sets of tees, short games, and a Sam Adam's pub to kick back and enjoy some 19th hole relaxation post-game. The course has a design to challenge golfers of every experience level and is newbie-friendly for anyone just starting out on the greens. Picatinny has a reputation as a fair, balanced, and well-maintained course for a competitive game. Lessons are available for both children and adults as taught by experienced local pros. The golf club also reinvests in the local military community by donating a portion of every membership towards the quality of life programs for vets such as childcare, food, and physical activities.
Can Professional Flood Damage Restoration Save Dover Furnishings?
After flood damage in a Dover property, the water tends to recede rapidly in most cases. However, there may still be significant amounts of moisture behind walls and absorbed into furnishings throughout the home. SERVPRO works on each article in a home one by one to ensure the best outcome from the water damage.
When scoping furniture with exposure to floodwater, the IICRC certified technicians look for specific aspects to determine the potential for reuse through restoration methods. Signs of damage to furniture in the home include:
- Cracked or swollen joints in hardwood furniture due to exposure to water
- Shrinkage or bleeding of dyes in upholstery
- Deterioration of composite wood furnishings from excessive moisture
There are two primary outcomes during floodwater cleanup. The techs can restore the items for reuse through drying and sanitizing cleaning, or the article gets disposed of with permission from the homeowner or adjuster.
