Storms can result in serious damage to your home in Hamburg, NJ, or anywhere across northern New Jersey, making it necessary to contact an experienced firm like ServiceMaster Metropolitan for storm damage cleanup. Our technicians are trained to treat a variety of types of damage, from broken windows to water damage, caused by storms.

Once we reach your home, our technicians will get to work to treat all areas of storm damage to your home. Let’s take a look at a few of the important tasks we perform to restore your home.

Flooring Cleanup

During cleanup, restoration professionals face a unique challenge when it comes to cleaning damaged flooring. With so many different types of flooring, our technicians utilize their experience and training to choose the proper techniques and products to use on your floors. For example:

  • Vinyl: If our experts find that the floor covering in your home is comprised of vinyl composition, or vinyl tiles, they will closely inspect the flooring to determine if the edges have started to curl due to water exposure. If the flooring is curling, they will have to remove it
  • Wood: Water damage causes wood flooring to swell and buckle. To minimize the damage, our restoration professionals will dry the flooring as quickly as possible. If the damage is too severe, they will remove and replace the flooring

Cleaning Interior Walls

Storm damage cleanup experts need to consider various elements while cleaning interior walls. Let’s go through the details here:

  • Sheetrock: After entering your home, our cleanup professionals will determine whether the walls are constructed of sheetrock, plaster, or some other form of wall covering. If they find sheetrock, they’ll determine how long it has been exposed to water. If it has been exposed for two hours or more, the material will have to be removed. This is why calling restoration experts quickly is so important
  • Insulation: Another building component our experts will check is the insulation within wall cavities. If insulation is present, they’ll determine whether or not it has absorbed water. If it has, the insulation will have to be removed

Throughout the storm damage cleanup process, our professionals utilize their training and experience to restore the different elements of your home. By ensuring each part of your home is cleaned properly they will prevent further damage and provide effective restoration.
