8/19/2020 (Permalink)

"We can help" Flooding is no match for SERVPRO. We are equipped and ready at a moment's notice to restore your home.

Call SERVPRO Technicians in Little Falls to Handle the Storm Flood Damage in Your Residence.

As a homeowner, you need to know what to do after a storm causes flooding in your residence. An experienced flood damage mitigation company such as SERVPRO can help you to restore your Little Falls home to its pre-incident state.

What can happen in my house after it floods?

Floodwater can weaken or completely ruin flooring, walls, and ceilings, among other structures. Do not hesitate to contact restorers to mitigate the storm flood damage in your Little Falls home. If you wait long before hiring a restoration firm, there is a chance for mold and other secondary damage occurring.

What can I expect from your flood remediation services?

When you contact SERVPRO technicians to perform flood damage cleanup and remediation, our team can come to your residence ready to start working right away. We usually begin the flood remediation process with a damage assessment to determine the extent of the destruction.

When inspecting a home, we consider how many materials are contaminated, if the materials are non-porous or porous and if it is possible to ventilate the area. Our technicians also consider if it is necessary to perform containment and if we can decontaminate and restore the affected materials. It may be impossible to restore some materials like carpets. In that case, we can remove and replace them. We offer an estimate that outlines the cost of our repair and restoration services.

What does flood restoration involve?

Flood remediation and restoration services depend on the severity of the damage. Generally, they involve the following:

Debris removal

Water removal

Water damage repair



We have trained our technicians to clean up and repair flood-damaged properties to their preloss condition. We can mitigate the damage and rebuild the affected areas, enabling you to save time and money. We are fully equipped with industrial-strength water removal and drying equipment such as:

Self-priming trash pumps

Centrifugal air movers

Refrigerant dehumidifiers

Should I turn off the equipment?

The restoration equipment we use can run for days without being turned off. It does not overheat. Unless our technicians advise you otherwise, you should let it remain running until we complete the restoration process. Our technicians monitor the equipment and job progress daily, adjusting, and moving the equipment as necessary.

Flooding can lead to extensive secondary damage if you delay the restoration process. Call SERVPRO of Clifton at (973) 928-3705 for efficient flood restoration services. We’re Faster To Any Size Disaster.

What Should I Do After I Have a Grease Fire in My Kitchen?

8/10/2020 (Permalink)

"Contact us" In the event of a fire incident, you need a team you can count on. Our SERVPRO technicians are available around the clock to assist you.

For Fire Damage Restoration After You Suffer From a Mishap in Your Kitchen in Little Falls Call SERVPRO.

The most common way a fire starts inside residential buildings in Little Falls is by a cooking accident. Sometimes people get distracted and leave whatever they are cooking unattended, and then a mishap occurs. Grease fires can start quickly and burn many items inside your house in a short period.

What problems can occur even if I extinguish the blaze quickly?

During fire damage restoration in Little Falls, our SERVPRO experts first inspect your entire structure for possible issues. When something sets ablaze inside your kitchen, the heat and the smoke coming from the flames can cause problems with your building materials and contents. Smoke can travel through various parts of your house and leave behind residues. Partially combusted particles first rise with the heat, and then they can harden and attach to cooler surfaces like the upper part of your walls and your ceilings. A grease fire can create oily residues that can prove to be difficult to remove from the various surfaces inside your home.

How can you remove greasy, oily residues from my walls and ceilings?

"Like Dissolves Like": This phrase describes the fact that water-based detergents work best on soils that are H2O-based and oily residues can be removed more efficiently by using oil-based products.

The Use of Solvents: A solvent simply is any solution that has the capability of dissolving another substance. In the cleaning and restoration industry, though, a solvent is defined as any cleaning agent that is not water-based. Solvents can be used to remove soils that aren't water-soluble or in situations where water-based detergents could damage the item being cleaned.

The Use of Detergents: Water-based solutions can sometimes be effective against oil-based residues because the detergents can attach themselves to the soil molecules, and then the water can pull them away.

If you ever suffer from a grease fire, call SERVPRO of Clifton at (973) 928-3705 24/7.

Call SERVPRO If Your Clifton Property Is Damaged By A Disaster

Our Experts Are Here To Help After A Disaster In Clifton

While we have some of the most awe-inspiring recreational areas like the Garret Mountain Reservation, Clifton’s thousands of residents also have seen their fair share of disasters over the years. From fire and water losses to destructive storms and mold growth, we have trained technicians and licensed residential and commercial contractors capable of helping. With our fast response to these emergencies, we can get to work quickly on making losses, “Like it never even happened.”


Scoping out a fire loss incident involves more than just determining how damaged your Clifton property has become. For our SERVPRO team, this initial evaluation helps to determine the pre-existing conditions of your home, the expectations of the customer, and the necessary equipment and personnel to meet these goals. Also, this preliminary assessment helps our professionals to interact with your insurance adjuster to determine their expectations and needs for damage claim approval to get work started on your home as soon as possible.

Cleaning soot from your home can be one of the many ways that the environment can get made safer and present fewer health hazards to those exposed. Microscopic particles of soot can be a threatening presence to a respiratory system, not to mention the damage that it can do as a residue on many surfaces given its acidic nature. Our professionals have multiple strategies to clean up soot, including both soda blasting for surface cleaning and the use of air scrubbers and other filtration tools throughout your Clifton residence.

Deodorizing after a fire loss can also be a challenge for even our experienced restoration professionals. By utilizing advanced tools like thermal foggers or hydroxyl generators, we can neutralize harsh lingering smoke odors, even those trapped in structural elements and contents of your Clifton property. Removing odors is one of the final steps that our technicians take before we take the final walkthrough with our customers.


Water losses can be more familiar to the city of Clifton than you might have thought. With more than 85,000 residents in the municipality alone, water losses continue to be one of the most common threats that these residences face. From burst pipes to leaking faucets, managing water emergencies can be the key to reducing the time and cost of restoration services. This management begins with a fast response at the first notification of a loss incident, and our SERVPRO team can rollout fast with pre-stocked water loss production vehicles and trucks.

Extracting water from materials is often more prevalent than surface water removal for your Clifton home, and this involves several advanced tools and technologies used by our professionals. With carpets being a magnet for absorbing pooling water, it is crucial to remove the majority of this trapped moisture to allow later drying techniques to be more productive. Weighted extraction tools, both ride-on and stationary, can press layers of carpeting and padding against the subflooring material and force moisture to the surface for collection.

Drying out damaged areas of your Clifton residence also involves a blend of advanced tools in our inventory, with air movers and dehumidifiers being at the heart of nearly every one of these tasks. In addition to the evaporation that air movers can allow, specialty tools can also help to manage trapped moisture in structural cavities and wood materials like plank flooring, including:

    •    Floor Mat Drying Systems
    •    Positive Pressure Systems
    •    Negative Pressure Systems


Severe weather threats like heavy snowfall or hurricane-strength torrential rains can be a destructive natural disaster for Clifton homes and businesses. Addressing structural concerns as well as the secondary effects like flooding does not have to fall to multiple contractors and restoration professionals, however. Our SERVPRO team has both reputable and knowledgeable water restoration and biohazard cleaning professionals to work alongside our in-house residential and commercial contractors.

Stopping flooding means slowing the penetration of water through structural breaches in your Clifton home. Our emergency response team can get to work on both tarping and board up services to prevent further damage to the structural elements and contents of your household. Other emergency services that we can offer during these disasters is content management, tree removal, and muck-out cleaning to remove flood debris on the floors of your residence.

Extraction and drying are vital elements of flood recovery for Clifton properties. Accomplishing either of these objectives involves the use of premier tools in our inventory, including powerful extractors and vacuums or high-velocity air movers and desiccant dehumidifiers. Remaining structural elements and contents can get cleaned and disinfected appropriately once drying has completed.


Higher humidity levels and unresolved water loss incidents can both be common contributing factors to mold threats in Clifton homes and businesses. When the organism can grow and spread for several days before discovery, it can be a challenging obstacle for even our experienced Applied Microbial Remediation Technicians (AMRT) to face. Remediating active colonization requires specific approaches tailored to the severity of the disaster, the area of the damage, and the materials affected.

Containment is often one of the priorities of our responding technicians, as colonies can emit volatile organic compounds (VOCs), and there is a higher concentration of potentially hazardous mold spores. Containment is instrumental in preventing the continued spread of the organism and helps to more easily regulate environmental conditions to make them less favorable to mold growth. Physical barriers in a Clifton home can get constructed with wood and thick poly sheeting, while non-physical barrier equipment like negative air chambers reduces spores and VOCs by pulling compromised air through a HEPA filter.

With its proximity to the Hudson River and Upper Bay, Clifton and the rest of Passaic County remain at nearly constant risk of meeting the conditions necessary for mold growth when humidity hovers above sixty percent. Our SERVPRO team stays prepared for these threats with pre-stocked trailers and production vehicles that can roll out quickly after the first notice of loss.

For Fire Damage Restoration Inside Your Woodland Park Home Call SERVPRO.

Depending on the severity of the blaze that burned inside your Woodland Park house, you and your family may be able to stay living in your home during the restoration process. For example, if the blaze was small and the building is still safe to be occupied, then you can live in sections that did not get affected.

What safety steps do you take when we can stay in or house during restoration?

During some fire damage restoration projects in Woodland Park, your insurance adjuster may ask that a professional company like SERVPRO conduct emergency cleaning procedures to make part of your home livable. In some cases where strong odors exist from protein-based residues, we can perform deodorization procedures. We can also clean areas of your home needed, such as your bathrooms or kitchen, as well as any clothing you need. We can establish a containment chamber to keep contaminants from the affected portions of your house getting into your living area.

What precautions can you take when I cannot stay in my home?

When the damage proves to be excessive, you may have to move out of your house because it is not safe to be occupied. When this occurs, we can do several things to secure your home, such as boarding it up and making sure the power and heat work. We can also prevent structural issues by doing things like reinforcing your floor joists.

How can you board up and secure my home?

Cover Over- One method we can use is to cover over the opening by attaching a piece of plywood to the surfaces surrounding the opening.

Insert. We can insert plywood inside the opening, which provides more security than covering over.

Bolt with Tension- The most secure way to board up an opening is to bolt the wood by nailing 2 x 4's around the piece of plywood.

If you ever notice that your structural components got burned during a fire, call SERVPRO of Clifton at (973) 928-3705 24/7.

What is The Best Ventilation System to Use for Drying after a Flood in Little Falls?

7/18/2020 (Permalink)

Flooded Floor From Water Leakage In Front Of Man For 24/7 assistance after a flood, contact SERVPRO of Clifton!

SERVPRO Uses Various Devices for Your Little Falls Home Moisture Removal Goals

A flooded home in Little Falls is devastating, but it is crucial to buckle down to go about the restoration process quickly. In all likelihood, your home requires airflow and extensive ventilation to ensure proper drying and help keep odors at bay. The best way depends on your particular location, weather, and security of your home. An open system uses outside air to assist in the process, and a closed system prevents outside air and air coming from unaffected areas of your home.

Should I Use Drying Zones During the Drying Process?

SERVPRO Assesses Your Unique Situation to Determine Drying Zones
Extensive flood damage in your Little Falls home typically means that most of the first floor in your home sustains damage. However, if you live in a two-story house, technicians may seal off the second story with 6-mil polyethylene to limit airflow within the structure. Sealed drying zones are also beneficial if some rooms took in more floodwater than others, requiring different drying techniques.

What Are the Advantages and Disadvantages of an Open Drying System?

    •    The evaporated moisture pushes outside of your home.
    •    Potential to use less energy because technicians incorporate outside air.
    •    Outside air needs to be significantly drier for an open system to work.

    •    If weather changes, your drying system may be in jeopardy.
    •    Leaving windows and doors open may pose a security risk if you leave your home.

What Are the Advantages and Disadvantages of a Closed Drying System?

    •    Outside weather is not an issue.
    •    Allows for precise drying measurements enabling technicians to reach their drying goal effectively.

    •    May take longer to set up.
    •    It can use more electricity.

Are There Different Types of Fire Damage?

7/7/2020 (Permalink)

Fire When fire damage happens, contact SERVPRO at (973) 928-3705. No matter how big or small the problem.

With smoke effects, there are multiple types that our SERVPRO team must address in Little Falls homes based on the material burned and the conditions of the fire.

Smoke is one of the most common effects of a fire because it gets generated during the combustion of almost every material in your Little Falls home. The variances in the type of damage that occurs involve the kind of material combusting and the areas of the house impacted. As challenging of a loss effect as this can become to clean up, there are several methods at our disposal to address these conditions.

Our SERVPRO team strives to be the one-stop-shop for all of the fire damage in Little Falls homes and businesses. To do this, we begin with a prompt response amid the crisis to begin mitigation and emergency services as soon as possible. This fast arrival can dictate the kind of smoke damage and structural losses present in the house and determine the appropriate surface and content cleaning techniques.

What Kind of Smoke Damages Exist? 

The combustion of a fire is often a combination of three primary factors: oxygen, heat, and fuel (material that burns.) A perfect blend of these elements would leave no residues or coatings behind, but this is rarely the case. Instead, smoke gets generated. As if the situation were not enough of an obstacle, the variances in heat, structural components, and exposure can leave homes contending with each of these smoke types in certain circumstances:

  • Wet Smoke
  • Dry Smoke
  • Protein Smoke
  • Fuel Oil Smoke

Is Wet Smoke Challenging to Remove? 

Identifying wet smoke often occurs with a pre-test when our professionals arrive. When we can note that most of the damage results from a slow-burning fire, deposits on the surfaces of construction materials and the contents of the house are often this more challenging residue. One of the reasons that this type of smoke damage can be a substantial obstacle is the time that these loss effects have during the fire itself to spread. Thick residues commonly left behind after smoldering can get pushed and forced into crevices, cracks, and inaccessible areas of the property.

Specific cleaning practices exist for wet smoke damage, typically involving agitative approaches like vacuuming, brushing, scrubbing, and more, along with our more potent chemical agents. In some cases where it gets believed that materials can get preserved, restoration might involve stripping and refinishing a surface. Cleaning up after wet smoke is not without its potential problems, however. These residues often lead to:

  • Smearing
  • Staining
  • Strong Odors

How Does Dry Smoke Form? 

Dry smoke is another challenge resulting from a specific fire type. Instead of a slow, smoldering fire, dry smoke gets created from a fast-burning, quick-moving blaze. Combustion is far more complete with dry heat fires. Instead of a thick, oily residue, our technicians instead must clean up a chalky film left behind on surfaces and contents otherwise unaffected by the fire.

Materials impacted directly by the moving flames before extinguishment are often too charred, blistered, and burned to protect and preserve. Controlled demolition is a practical approach to these situations. Removing only the compromised portions of wall systems, flooring, and ceiling materials can reduce money spent on materials and the installation you later require.

What Makes Protein Residues Challenging to Remove? 

Protein fires are not often thought of when it comes to fire restoration but can be one of the most common obstacles in kitchen fire scenarios. Often these fires originate from food burning or grease igniting. Burned meats, foul, and fish can leave a thick and odorous residue on surfaces in the kitchen area. Some of the worst areas impacted by these protein smoke residues are the cabinets and wall materials directly connected to the ignition point on the stove. Be mindful of the risks of grease fire flare-ups in your kitchen and the appropriate ways to handle emergencies when cooking:

  • Red Meat
  • Poultry
  • Fish

How Common is Fuel Oil Soot Damages? 

Furnace puff backs result from the ignition of your furnace getting delayed, and with older units, this can happen more often than homeowners think. Vapors can build up in the chamber to the point of a small explosion when the furnace does start. This blast shoots soot and other debris through the house and out of registers and vents. This ionized smoke damage can easily be identified as it commonly stays within the vicinity of registers and vents in the furnace system and can appear like black spider webs on surfaces.

Smoke can be a considerable obstacle for even well-trained service professionals. Let our SERVPRO of Clifton help you to make fire losses “Like it never even happened,” no matter what kind of smoke damage you have to face. Give us a call anytime at (973) 928-3705.

Will Professional Water Mitigation in Woodland Park Save My Carpets?

6/28/2020 (Permalink)

water soaked carpet pad on the floor of a home Don’t panic when facing water damage in your home. Contact our certified technicians to assist during this time.

SERVPRO Provides Skilled Water Mitigation to Salvage the Carpeting Throughout Your Woodland Park Interior

A water leak within the home is often an unavoidable emergency. Whether your plumbing begins to leak or a water heater breaks down, you have to work fast before water migrates into dry space. The longer water saturates your carpeting, furnishings, and personal belongings, the more significant the impact. Calling in the help of SERVPRO’s IICRC-certified technicians lessens the onset of secondary damage and increases your ability to salvage your carpeting.

How Does Mitigation Work?

Our team understands how crucial prompt action is when it comes to water mitigation in Woodland Park. Because of this, SERVPRO offers restoration services 24/7, arrives on-site and ready to get to work in as little as a few hours or less. Upon arrival, we assess the damage and use a unique formula to set a plan in place for water removal, drying, and deodorizing.

Can I Save My Rugs and Carpets?

No two surfaces are created equal, which is why our team uses specialized methods and spot testing to ensure we preserve the integrity of your rugs and carpets. When we begin the mitigation, we take into consideration several factors of your carpeting, including:

  •   Color
  •   Material
  •   Weave
  •   Installation technique, and more

This assessment allows us to dictate best practices for water extraction and what cleaning products are the right fit for the job. Once the bulk of the water gets removed, we utilize a broad range of drying and dehumidification equipment to eliminate the remainder of the moisture. We do this with the help of:

  •   Wet/dry vacuums
  •   Wand extractors
  •   Air movers
  •   Industrial-strength fans
  •   Desiccant dehumidifiers, and more

Throughout the mitigation project, all efforts are made to save your carpeting and rugs. If we are unable to salvage these materials, everything gets removed, adequately disposed of, and replaced with brand-new materials. Call us whenever you need us at SERVPRO of Clifton at (973) 928-3705, and we will send out a team as soon as possible.

Can I Operate My Clifton Salon While Mold Remediation Occurs?

6/10/2020 (Permalink)

black mold on the wall Call SERVPRO of Clifton for a mold damage consultation.

SERVPRO Listens to You! We Have Strategies to Keep You Doing Business in Clifton While We Complete Mold Remediation!

It might have been a while since you opened your Clinton salon doors to clients, but now you fear another shutdown because of mold growth in your utility room. Do not despair. Our highly qualified crew of remediation specialists know how to rid your salon laundry space of active mold growth. We feel confident we can do it while you snip and trim in your customer area.

How Can Professionals Hide Mold Remediation?

Mold remediation in your Clifton hairstyling shop must occur in a contained space for the health and welfare of you and your clientele. Because the mold is located in a separate room, you are halfway there. Our technicians might opt to contain the space even more effectively by wrapping all or a portion of the room in 1.6 mil polyethylene. A negative pressure air scrubber installed inside captures tiny particles of moldy debris in HEPA filters and exhausts to the outdoors.

Can I Spray on a Disinfectant and Repaint the Stain?

Even though it seems like a solid material, the drywall in your salon laundry is permeable. The hyphae or “roots” of mold organisms infiltrate the structure and frequently rebound if the colonies are not removed mechanically by scraping or brushing. Blasting with baking soda can restore the drywall in some cases, but we often suggest the removal and replacement of porous materials.

Will Mold Come Back?

Mold spores are everywhere, impossible to eradicate. If they do not absorb moisture, they rarely grow and damage surfaces. We help you determine where the water originated, and offer hints to manage moisture like:

    •    Fixing leaks
    •    Installing and using exhaust fans
    •    Cleaning spills immediately

Punch in (973) 928-3705 to call SERVPRO of Clifton for a mold damage consultation. Our trained crew follows EPA guidelines to remediate mold growth, and we have reliable recommendations to help you inhibit mold issues in the future.

How Can I Get My Clifton Restaurant Open Quickly After Water Losses?

6/2/2020 (Permalink)

cafe with tables ready for business Did your restaurant experience a water loss event? SERVPRO can quickly restore your business.

Our SERVPRO Team has Efficient Extraction, Drying, and Cleaning Solutions to get Your Doors Back Open as Soon as Possible. 

A water loss incident in your Clifton restaurant can cripple your ability to serve food and remain available to your loyal customer base. As damaging as these conditions might initially appear, our technicians' fast and reliable response can help manage immediate losses and better protect your investment in advanced equipment in the kitchen and the furniture and flooring materials of the dining areas.

Moisture and water can move quickly after a loss incident, making water removal in Clifton restaurants and businesses a vital step in slowing the migration of loss effects. Even when the damage remains isolated to your restaurant's specific area, you cannot expect to restore these losses and keep your doors open to your patrons without a deliberate response by our experienced SERVPRO professionals. Because most of our roster has water restoration (WRT) certifications through the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC), we have educated professionals able to help 24/7. 

What Are the Most Efficient Extraction Methods? 

Extraction is a critical process that can be instrumental in determining how long before your doors can reopen. Standing water can be destructive to electric equipment and can deteriorate sensitive materials like wooden booths or chair legs. The sooner that our professionals implement some of our premier extraction tools, the better protected these exposed materials and areas become. Removing surface water in your restaurant often falls to multiple extraction units, including: 

  • Electric Submersible Pumps – While we have several submersible pumps, electric units are versatile because of their longer discharge lines and continuous, quiet operation. These units can take standing water down beneath two inches in depth. 
  • Wet Vacuums – Once the pooling is a manageable couple of inches, wet vacuums play cleanup. These are much more mobile units that can get placed precisely where water still exists and remove the lingering surface water threats. 
  • Carpet Wand - With the dining area carpeted, it can be costly to replace all of this flooring material after a water loss. It is possible to prevent tear-out and reinstallation by implementing carpet wands to extract trapped water and make drying more efficient. 

How Can My Restaurant Get Dried Quickly?

Drying the restaurant is vital, especially when it is feasible to keep your doors open in some capacity with the application of the right containment methods. Regulating specific drying sciences like airflow, temperature, and humidity can increase the overall efficiency and pace of the drying process. Some tools that can be instrumental in evaporative drying include:

  • Air Movers 
  • Desiccant Dehumidifiers
  • Positive Pressure Systems 

How Do I Get My Doors Open As Soon As Possible? 

Statistically, businesses have a hard time bouncing back from widespread loss incidents. From Clifton water and fire losses to even flooding and storm losses, the building's effect can be costly and take longer than expected. Our SERVPRO team works to ensure that we can do whatever you need to get your business back open as soon as possible so that you can get back to business. Often, this commitment to our commercial customers comes with a three-part system: 

  • Job Scoping – Appropriately diagnosing the building's problems and the specific processes necessary to restore them is a vital system for efficiently recovering your restaurant.Our project manager can work with you to determine pre-existing conditions and the particular priorities you have to get back to work in some capacity to keep your business afloat through the restoration. 
  • Appropriate Containment – Operating your restaurant in a limited capacity means keeping your staff and customers out of the drying zones. We can build physical barriers to prevent cross-contamination in work areas and to expedite the drying process. 
  • Round-the-Clock Restoration – We know that you are not going to rest until your building looks the way it should, so we will do the Our SERVPRO professionals can offer around-the-clock restoration of your property to make drying and recovery after a water loss as fast as possible.

Is Demolition Necessary? 

It is always our policy to restore before replacing whenever possible. That is especially true with the investments that you have made in kitchen elements, dining room furniture, and flooring. While we have in-house contractors that can oversee controlled demolition and full-scale reconstruction when necessary, we work first to restore the property to preloss condition. 

We know that every minute counts when your restaurant suffers a water loss. You can count on the fast and reliable response of our SERVPRO of Clifton team. Give us a call today at (973) 928-3705.
