What Happens If Water Mitigation Waits in Haddon Heights Homes?

2/18/2021 (Permalink)

Property owners breathe a sigh of relief when the SERVPRO green fleet swiftly arrives for water loss mitigation. Don't wait, call us right away.

SERVPRO Techs are Available 24/7 for Water Damage Cleanup in Haddon Heights

Two main factors determine how much restoration potential property and contents have after water damage occurs. Those determinants are the type of water and how long it degraded before the cleanup began. Rainwater or a pipe burst is safe to handle if extraction starts within 24 hours; however, if a toilet backs up or groundwater enters the home, the water's potential to contain hazards is likely. All water types that wait longer than 24 hours for professional attention get handled as degraded.

SERVPRO technicians carefully test when handling water mitigation in Haddon Heights homes. The testing looks for:

  • Contaminants or pathogens
  • Chemicals
  • Sewage

Along with wearing full-body protection gear, the techs treat the water before extraction with their professional quality biocides and antimicrobial solutions to make it safer to handle. The water disposal may get directed down storm drains or into tanks to get emptied off-site safely if there is a flooding situation from storms and the drains are backed up. 

SERVPRO of Haddon Heights / Voorhees at (856) 566-3388 stands ready to serve the local Haddon Heights community with any size needed water mitigation services.
