Is Standing Randolph Water Dangerous?
Randolph, SERVPRO knows how hard water damage can be. Give us a call.
Standing Water in Your Randolph Residence Can Threaten Your Health
A water incident can be annoying and disruptive to your daily life. It may come from a plumbing issue or an oversight on your part. Regardless of who is to blame, removing excess water and moisture from your home is of paramount importance. Water left unattended can become an even bigger issue when it becomes a breeding ground for mold and bacteria, further compromising your home and your health.
To avoid complications and for effective water removal from your home in Randolph, you can count on our SERVPRO team. Our crew is certified in water restoration and ready to address your needs methodically. Once we arrive at your home, we begin by assessing the scope of the damage and developing a viable plan to return your home to mint condition.
How can I remove the water left by a leak?
Water can hide where you least expect it. Aside from the apparent wet carpet and furniture, your wall cavities, drywall, and subfloor may all cover excess moisture. Our SERVPRO team uses industrial equipment to detect and quantify water deposits hiding in your home. Once we know their location, we can apply specific techniques to remove excess moisture, including the following-
- Wand extractor- this handheld device extends our reach into tucked-away corners and hard to reach places.
- Injecti-dry technology- by drilling tiny holes in your baseboards, we can inject warm air into your walls and encourage water evaporation.
- Wet-dry vacuum- it can help us dry carpets and other surfaces.
Pumps of varying capacities are also useful when extracting water from your home. The most important thing is to call a professional crew and to avoid leaving water evaporation to chance. The longer water stands in your home, the more damage it causes.
SERVPRO of Southwest Morris County is your ally during your home emergency. Call us at (973) 895-5000 and let us work with you to leave your home, "Like it never even happened."

Removing Water Damage from a Randolph Attic
Your home is in good hands with SERVPRO. We are available day and night to assist you.
Call SERVPRO for Your Randolph Water Damage to Avoid Mold Growth
Attic water damage tends to sneak up on homeowners, especially if the attic is primarily used for storage. Without regular checking and fast mitigation, these spaces can become host to extensive structural damage and mold growth that can lead to costly repairs and replacements for your home. When disaster strikes, however, there is a team you can count on for fast mitigation.
If you require water damage removal in your Randolph residence, SERVPRO technicians are only a phone call away from arriving at your home to restore it to a preloss condition that is clean and safe. The emphasis in SERVPRO's IICRC-based protocols is not just on structural cleanup, but also the maintenance and restoration of your property. If your home requires general contracting for further repairs, SERVPRO is licensed to offer these services (#13VH06013000).
SERVPRO's Commitment to Education
SERVPRO technicians, staff, and franchise owners alike receive in-depth, hands-on training and education in fire, water, and mold damage mitigation and remediation, as well as the restoration of various materials. Empirical measurements and a scientific approach to cleanup are crucial to the success of any home restoration, and technicians get extensive training to stay consistent with IICRC standards.
SERVPRO also offers credit and non-credit courses for insurance and real estate professionals, including the following:
- Water Damage Restoration
- Fire Damage Restoration
- Understanding Mold in the Restoration Industry
- Restorative Drying for Loss Control
- Mitigation Awareness Response Seminar (non-credit course)
SERVPRO's Science-Based Approach
One of the essential aspects of tackling any water damage situation is being able to measure the amount of moisture in several sources. Without knowing how much moisture is in saturated surfaces, in the air, or what the ideal humidity of each affected material is, it is impossible to implement a drying plan that fits the needs of your structure.
For example, if wooden supports in your attic are affected by flooding, SERVPRO technicians can use moisture sensors and meters to determine drying goals for the wood. From there, centrifugal air movers can be placed every 10 to 16 linear feet to optimize drying without overwhelming dehumidifiers, which must capture and eliminate moisture pulled up by the air movers. As drying proceeds, polyethylene drying chambers can be erected to increase efficiency.
SERVPRO of Southwest Morris County supports the community by being Faster to Any Size Disaster. Call (973) 895-5000 to have a team at your home within hours.

Become Familiar With Randolph Mold Damage Remediation Success
A mold infestation can seem quite overwhelming. Contact SERVPRO immediately for mitigation and remediation services.
Why SERVPRO's Full Service Approach Successfully Manages Severe Mold Damage in Randolph
When Randolph homeowners returned home from vacation, they were horrified to discover an entire room covered in mold colonies. The family was completely unprepared for the magnitude of the mold growth and damage, and were concerned about potential health effects. Because of the scope of the infestation, the family left the house and called us for immediate professional intervention.
Setting the Scene
Residents seeking help in Randolph for severe mold issues are scared and stressed. Nothing can prepare for the stench and look of an extensive mold outbreak. In this case, as seen from the photo documentation, mold covered the entire room, including the floor and trim. Sagging ceiling tiles hint at water damage from above or humidity in the area so high that porous materials became saturated. After assessment and consultation with the insurance company and our management team, the decision for mold-based demolition finalized. Disinfecting before work and after the demolition and removal were keys to preserving the safety of our work crews and the home's inhabitants.
What to Expect from Professional Mold Remediation
Our promise to customers is first and foremost to prioritize the health, security, and safety of all, why SERVPRO trains mold remediation crews in the nationally recognized Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) protocols:
A mold infestation this extensive requires the highest level of containment security. Our team isolated the affected space, partitioning it off with a 6-mil sealed heavy-duty poly dust barrier. We set up a dual-barrier airlock for entry and exit, and enforced a stringent rule that technicians wear full personal protective equipment (PPE). During the project, HEPA-filtered negative pressure air scrubbers cleaned the atmosphere within the room, venting to the outside. The amount of dust and hazardous debris stirred up during mold removal and demolition is why SERVPRO takes the utmost precautions during mold remediation.
Mold and Moldy Materials Removal
This particular mold project required demolition, resulting in a large quantity of mold materials removed for disposal as hazardous waste. The widespread nature of the mold growth combined with the damage done to the materials infested made it problematic to try to retain and restore the interior structures. Our familiarity with proper mold debris containment paired with our capability to do demolition and rebuilding under our general contractor's license is why SERVPRO was an excellent match for this complex project.
As part of any mold remediation project, strict adherence to contamination protocols is essential. A thorough cleanup of all affected spaces is vital to prevent cross-contamination. The care needed is second nature to our experienced and highly-qualified team members. Meeting regulatory marks and providing peace of mind is why SERVPRO is a top regional mold remediation firm.
Disinfection with EPA-Registered Products
Before beginning the mold demolition process, we applied a broadcast EPA-registered disinfectant. This practice limits exposure to opportunistic mold spores and debris, although the PPE and containment do the heavy lifting of keeping all safe. Once the area was cleared of mold, additional treatment with approved antimicrobials ensured that any structural drying needed would not spread moldy residues. Our team is consistent in our follow-through on these best practices, why SERVPRO inspires confidence even after profound mold damage.
Water Source Elimination
Mold does not grow in the absence of moisture. Our proven ability to find and eliminate the source of water damage is why SERVPRO is uniquely qualified to manage severe mold demolition and disinfection projects. We do not feel the job is complete until the water issues resolve as well.
Severe mold challenges need the most professional and up to date equipment and systems, why SERVPRO of Southwest Morris County is the choice of many in our area. Call us at (973) 895-5000 to arrange for a mold damage consultation at any time.

Randolph Property Owners Know that SERVPRO Provides Solutions after Structural or Cosmetic Damages from Cleanup to Rebuild
No Matter the Damage--Storm, Fire, Mold, or Water--Randolph Homeowners Love to See SERVPRO on the Job
Why SERVPRO Restoration Services Can Consistently Exceed the Expectations of Randolph Homeowners
Property care and maintenance can help to prevent you from incurring expensive damages and keep your insurance premiums low. Occasionally you may run into a property issue that is difficult to prepare for which is why we set up SERVPRO here in Morris County. Our restoration services encompass mold, water, fire, and storm damages while our training covers even more than that. For homeowners in need of restoration services that could reduce the expense of your claim and help you handle the paperwork on your behalf, you can contact us twenty-four hours a day on our emergency line to arrange for a call out.
Microbial fungi, known as mold, has a habit of cropping up during wet or humid periods of the year. Any small malfunction in your insulation, attic spaces, ventilation, or crawlspaces can lead to microbial growth issue. Sometimes, these effects are immediately apparent, and you can carry out remediation yourself by cleaning away soiling and enlisting the help of a professional plumber. Other times, mold damage in your Randolph home may be extensive, which is when you should seek out professional restoration services.
Mold grows when spores settle on damp spots in your home. Mold itself, is present in dust and considered a natural part of the home environment. However, uncontrolled mold growth can cause problems for some because it creates musty odors and is unsightly to look at. Infestations naturally spread outward from the source of moisture and can contaminate porous materials that then must be disposed of professionally to ensure the issue does not return.
SERVPRO mold assessment and remediation technicians are capable of handling mold issues from start to finish. Using thermal imaging cameras, we can trace the source of moisture and shut it off. We may need to temporarily remove restrictions like tiles, floorboards, carpets, and drywall to allow our drying equipment to do its job before removing soiling from surfaces and materials. Unfortunately, some materials may not be salvageable, in which case, a SERVPRO technician can place them in sealed containment bags and carry them to a designated waste facility. Once the infestation is removed, we can replace materials and repaint surfaces to make it, "Like it never even happened."
When materials burn, they release several chemicals into the surrounding environment in the form of smoke. Some of these chemicals can be harmful; others can cause smoke residues and staining. Hot smoke seeks out cooler surfaces and clean air, which means an electrical fire in your living room can cause significant smoke damage to your staircases or passageways. We have technicians to help restore fire damage in your Randolph home using tried and tested restoration methods.
Once you have arranged a service with one of our customer service team, you can begin mitigating loss in your home by laying old sheets over floors, carpets, and staircases. When temperatures cool, soot deposits and ash begin to drop from ceilings, which can cause further damage to the surfaces below. You can vacuum these deposits once surfaces have been covered to help remove loose ash or soots to speed up restoration procedure. On arrival, SERVPRO technicians can take over the cleaning effort and begin restoration service procedure. The other option, and safer, is to simply wait until our crew arrives to begin the cleanup.
Walls and ceilings require professional attention because they are naturally cooler and therefore buildup thicker smoke and soot deposits. Your SERVPRO technician has to consider which cleaning techniques and chemicals can be applied without causing further damage to the paintwork of your Randolph home or the unnecessary spreading of soils. Once the removal of soiling is complete, we can dry the property, deodorize it using fogging equipment then set to work refinishing, and repainting areas of damage until your Durham home is restored to its pre-incident condition.
Large loss recovery teams are designed to handle restoration services for a severely damaged property from start to finish. If you are unfortunate enough to suffer severe storm damage in your Randolph home and have been temporarily relocated, you can trust us to restore start to finish on your behalf.
In large loss scenarios, it is not uncommon for your Randolph property to become extensively damaged. Windows may be blown in along with doors and other areas of structural weakness in the home. Overnight, heavy rainfall may enter the property, causing waterlogging as well as water damages to possessions. The longer these items are exposed, the greater the likelihood of permanent issues, which is why SERVPRO offer pack-out services and storage facilities for Randolph homeowners that have become displaced by a storm event.
Pack out restoration services involve removing contents from your home for safe storage while the repair is carried out on your home. SERVPRO technicians can inventory your belongings and arrange for professional movers or us to transport them to our climate-controlled warehouses. Without possessions, the structure of your home can be dried efficiently, secured, and prepared by our general contractors (General Contractor License #: 13VH06013000) to arrive and conduct remodeling, rebuilding, and repair on your home.
Water leaks do not have to be severe to cause water damage in your Randolph home. A slow leak can be just as harmful over time and, in some cases, more harmful, as they are frequently spotted by homeowners at a late stage. Issues with sealants or plumbing can often linger out of view in your property slowly weakening materials and discoloring areas of the home. Once you spot the signs of an internal leak, which may be an odor or visible signs, you should contact professional restoration services immediately to prevent further losses.
SERVPRO technicians are available throughout Randolph and have the ability to conduct restoration services on-time using a combination of experience and equipment. We can temporarily remove floorboards, drywall, and other physical barriers to get to the source of your water issue. In situations where temporary removal or demolition may be time-consuming, our team can use a full inventory of moisture sensors, meters, hygrometers, and thermal imaging cameras to find water without performing demolitions.
Wall cavities in your Randolph home can be notoriously hard to remove inner residual moisture. To tackle this issue, a SERVPRO technician can deploy structural cavity drying equipment to get the job done. We start by removing the baseboard at the bottom of the wall and drilling small holes four inches apart. These weep holes allow us to insert injector nozzles along the baseline of your wall. By switching on the injectidry system, we can then circulate hot air directly into the wall cavity without having to remove the wall itself, resulting in a full restoration of your water damage issue.
SERVPRO of Southwest Morris County have decades of experience delivering restoration services that consistently exceed your expectations. Reach out to us today at (973) 895-5000.

Does Water Damage in Your Randolph Home Leave You at Risk for Mold or Foul Odors?
SERVPRO of Southwest Morris County is ready to Help with all your water damage restoration needs.
How SERVPRO Can Help Reduce Secondary Damages in Your Randolph Home
In a home, you are most likely to experience water damage in the kitchen or bathroom. However, plumbing issues and accidents have the potential to occur in nearly every location in the house.
When SERVPRO performs water damage cleanup in Randolph homes, we pay special attention to the water extraction phase as this lessens drying time. We have some of the most advanced technology in the restoration services industry to ensure property owners have the best chance for limiting loss to their homes and possessions. Our portable pumps enable our certified Water Restoration Technicians to move quickly and change attachments to effectively remove water out of carpet and padding and also upholstery.
Inadequate water damage cleanup leads to secondary issues that have the potential to incur additional costs for remediation of mold infestations and odor removal. We have advanced moisture detection and specialized water extraction equipment to ensure the cleanup goes as expected the first time.
Critical elements for avoiding mold and foul odors in the home are:
- Indoor humidity lowered below 45% to inhibit mold growth
- Using moisture detection equipment to ensure no areas of excessive moisture remain after drying
- Using odor control applications if any water odors remain after attaining drying goals
- Use of professional quality antibacterial and antimicrobial cleaners on water-affected surfaces
Sometimes actions such as damaged sheetrock removal, tile lifting, and weep holes drilled for airflow occur after a water loss. If there are repairs needed to restore the home to its preloss condition, we have a General Contractor License #13VH06013000. This lets us offer homeowners a single source for both the restoration services as well as any needed reconstruction.
Water damage needs fast action to minimize loss. Call SERVPRO of Southwest Morris County at (973) 895-5000, and we arrive on-site within an hour to turn around water loss in your property and make it "Like it never even happened."
Why We Are The Leader In Mendham Flood Damage Restoration
Our professionals restored this home from significant water damage. We responded quickly, which limited further damage, call us right away.
Why SERVPRO Is the Solution for Managing Mendham Flood Damage
Torrential rains and accompanying high winds can expose your Mendham home to the risk of flooding. Roofs, windows, and siding take a beating during increasingly more common extreme weather events. The harm done needs a fast and efficient response, which is why hiring our team of highly-qualified flooding remediation technicians is a prudent decision. Rely on our training, experience, and state-of-the-art equipment to return your damaged home to “Like it never even happened” condition.
Flood damage in your Mendham home following severe weather conditions requires professional assistance. Our team arrives with some expectations about the tasks needed, but we also assess the circumstances of your particular flooding loss carefully. The crew leader develops a plan based on your scenario, and crew members immediately begin its implementation. Our employees are trained in the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) best practices in all tasks needed from securing exterior damage to flood mitigation to applied structural drying. Effective cleaning and disinfection are also skills we apply. The full range of flood remediation services we offer is why our team delivers successful flood damage abatement.
Once tarping and boarding up limits further exposure to the elements, our team begins water removal. Flooding deeper than two inches pumps out, and then we use wanded extractors to eliminate the residual. The faster flood waters evacuate, the better the outcome which is why SERVPRO avoids delay by stocking the needed equipment on each service vehicle. We follow local rules as we contain and dispose of the water.
The availability of alternative power sources is another reason why SERVPRO is a reliable partner in flood damage mitigation. Stormy weather often knocks out the electricity as trees fall on lines or lightning strikes transformers. Our submersible pumps use gas or are connected to portable generators as are our truck mounted water extractors.
Thorough moisture removal is crucial to your home’s structural integrity and is why SERVPRO technicians use a range of thermal imaging and moisture monitoring equipment to ensure no hidden caches of water remain trapped. Controlled demolition such as flood cuts gives our team access to pockets of water and permits better airflow as we complete drying.
The answer to why SERVPRO of Southwest Morris County should be your first call after flood damage is the difference our trained technicians and high-efficiency equipment make. Call 24/7 for our professional services at (973) 895-5000.

Don't let a splash of bath water create a bigger problem for your Randolph home.
Professional Water Removal in a Randolph Home
Bathtime with the little ones can often prove to be an adventure. When you have small children that decide to overflow the bathtub and cover your bathroom tile and hallway carpet with water, the prospect of water removal can be overwhelming to consider between all of the other obligations of daily life.
If your little ones have a little too much fun during bath time and you need water removal in your Randolph home, SERVPRO professionals are here to help. Our team is outfitted with the latest in water detection, extraction, and drying equipment to mitigate damage to your home. Infrared cameras can be used to measure moisture levels behind walls and other structures, and we use scientific drying principles for fast and reliable methods of eliminating moisture in your home. OSHA-approved cleaners and EPA-registered biocides can be used to disinfect surfaces on your property and prevent bacterial growth after a home has suffered water damage.
After you call one of our SERVPRO representatives, we can have a team out to you within hours to assess the damage to your flooring and subflooring. Moisture sensors and meters can be used to examine moisture levels in your carpet and on your bathroom floor. From there, we can prepare your flooring for drying. The carpeting may be pulled up so drying can better affect both the carpet surface as well as the padding underneath.
Drying floors, whether tile or carpet, is crucial to preserving both the surface and the subflooring that is supporting it. If left unchecked, water can seep into the wooden framework of your home and become a haven for mold and structural damage. Our team uses air movers and dehumidifiers to extract moisture from surfaces and replace it with warm, dry air, so any damage is dried quickly and efficiently.
SERVPRO of Southwest Morris County strives to leave every residential water damage disaster restored to its pre-damage condition, or as we like to say: "Like it never even happened." If you need our services to clean up your disaster, give us a call today at (973) 895-5000.
