Eliminating Water Damage In Your Haddon Heights Home

SERVPRO of Haddon Heights / Voorhees ensures that your home looks, “Like it never even happened.”

Eliminating Garage Water Damage from a Haddon Heights Home

When water damage strikes in your home, it may not seem like as big of a deal when it happens in the garage. However, garages typically have plenty of vulnerable structural materials. From unfinished concrete floors to wall joists and insulation, the repair costs can be both immense and frustrating for homeowners to tackle on their own.

If your Haddon Heights home's garage suffers water damage, SERVPRO's IICRC-certified technicians can provide you with rapid mitigation services at any time of the day or night. These certified professionals receive extensive training in water damage mitigation, structural cleaning, drying, and even restoration of structures after disaster per Institute of Inspection Cleanup and Restoration Certification standards. Your local SERVPRO also offers licensed general contracting services (license #HIC #13VH01276600).

How to Seal Cracks in Your Garage
Chase the crack. This process entails using a hammer and cold chisel to remove loose edges and material that might be hiding in the crevice. Make sure the chisel runs in line with the crack and hit it firmly with your hammer to break away loose material. Clean up debris with a shop vac.
Fill the area. Vacuum again and scrub the area with a wire brush to prep the space for filling. Two-part epoxy gel or sand slurries work well for this purpose. Trowel the surface until smooth and let the material set. If you are repairing a large crack, fill the area partway with silica sand.
Smooth out your repairs. After the floor cures, you can grind it smooth and apply paint or an epoxy coating of your choosing.

SERVPRO's Careful Measurements
Moisture measurement is a must for effective mitigation. SERVPRO techs use both penetrating and non-penetrating tools, as well as infrared imaging, to determine the moisture contents of structural materials, surfaces, and even moisture behind walls. Technicians also use thermohygrometers to detect relative humidity and calculate specific humidity. This helps determine the accurate placement of drying equipment and realistic structural drying times for materials in your garage.

SERVPRO of Haddon Heights / Voorhees ensures that your home looks, “Like it never even happened.” Call (856) 566-3388 for service that can come to you 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year.
