Sewage Backup in a Commercial Building in Fanwood, NJ
Check out this before and after!
A commercial building in Fanwood, NJ called us recently about a sewage backup in one of their bathrooms. We got a crew chief out to them the same day so we could see what we were dealing with. After evaluating the damage and identifying the course of action, we got a crew in there to begin the cleanup process. The after picture was taken only a few days after we got the call about the backup. The landlord was extremely pleased that we were able to clean up the sewage and water so quickly and that there was no odor left behind. This is what they had to say about our work:
"When one of our toilets backed up in our bathroom, to say we were shocked is an understatement. After doing some research, we decided our best bet would be to go with SERVPRO of Fort Lee. After our first phone call, I knew we had made the right decision. I am so glad I decided to give them a call. I don't think any other company would have been able to get the job done like they did. They truly are amazing!" - Andrew. F - Fanwood, NJ
Stay Warm This Winter!
As the temperatures begin to drop and winter closes in, it can sometimes be difficult to keep warm with the wrath of winter against you. However, we have a few tips to help keep you warm all winter long!
The use of area rugs can be extremely helpful in the winter. This simple addition helps to insulate rooms with hardwood or tile floors and regulates the temperature inside your home.
In addition to using an area rug, a helpful tip is to close the fireplace damper when the fireplace is not in use. By closing the fireplace damper, you are preventing the warm air from escaping from your home.
By utilizing these couple tips, you can make sure you and your family stay warm all winter!
Space Heater Safety
When the weather begins to cool down, the use of things like space heaters will continue to increase. If used improperly, they can cause some serious damage. Luckily, there are a few ways to try and avoid this!
When using a space heater that burns fuel, like a kerosene heater, always use the manufacturer's specified fuel.
Another important idea to remember is to always turn of portable heaters off when leaving the room or going to bed. If not, an unsupervised space heater can cause an unpleasant surprise.
The last tip to remember is to plug the space heaters directly into outlets, never into an extension cord or power strip.
By following these simple tips, we hope you are able to avoid a visit and call to us here at SERVPRO of Fort Lee!
What To Do When a Pipe Bursts
A pipe burst can happen at any time. When it does, people are often left unsure of what to do. Here at SERVPRO of Fort Lee, we are equipped to deal with that type of situation in the best way possible. While you wait for us to get to the scene, there are a couple of things you can do:
- Turn of the water to your house. If the water remains on, odds are the water will continue to leak or even flood. By shutting off the source, you are reducing the amount of damage done to your house.
- If the pipe continues to leak or drip, use a bucket to collect the water to contain the problem.
- If the pipe breaks in a wall or ceiling, switch off the power at the main breaker and avoid electrical fixtures or wiring. The mix of wires and water can be extremely dangerous.
We are trained to help and deal with these kinds of situations. If you ever find yourself in that place, give us a call at (201) 496-6024.
Categorizing a Water Damage
When our crew gets to a water damage, they identify the extent of the damage by categorizing the risk and immediate threat the water poses.
Water is categorized to describe how dirty and unsanitary the water is.
- Category 1 - The source of the water is sanitary and it does not pose a risk. However, if left untreated, it could change categories and become unsanitary.
- Category 2 - The water is significantly contaminated and it can cause a human to become sick if they come in contact with it.
- Category 3 - The water is the most unsanitary and contaminated and contains harmful pathogenic or toxigenic agents.
Water is categorized not only for the safety of the homeowner but for our crew as well. By categorizing the water, it also allows us to use the proper chemicals and equipment to deal with the task at hand. If you find yourself in this situation, give SERVPRO of Fort Lee a call at (201) 496-6024.
