Every home and building has had a water damage issue at some point and even though its common to experience minor water damage, it can still become a huge problem. Water damage can be caused by many factors such as wet weather conditions that include flooding and heavy rain, or issues within your home such as plumbing leaks, overflows, burst pipes, and sewage backups. Once the damage starts, it will gradually get worse as the excess water and moisture penetrates absorbent building materials. ServiceMaster Restoration by Complete provides water damage restoration services in Newark, NJ to cleanup excess water from homes and businesses and repair the damage. Our technicians arrive quickly to contain the damage and begin the drying process before the excess water causes structural damage or mold.
Most building materials within a home or building including flooring, wood, insulation, and drywall are absorbent. They allow excess water to spread far and deep into your home and the damage it causes to these materials could threaten their structural integrity. Water significantly weakens building materials like wood and drywall which only increases the risk of structural damage. The presence of excess water and moisture also leads to mold growth which will make the property damage even worse while putting those inside at risk for mold related health issues. At ServiceMaster Restoration by Complete, we use the best available water extraction equipment to remove standing water as well as moisture absorbed by porous materials. It usually takes about 3-5 days to ensure that all the water is removed and that the affected materials have been thoroughly dried.

Newark, NJ sometimes experiences frigid temperatures during the winter that are cold enough to freeze the water within your pipes. This is most likely to happen in areas like your attic or basement where pipes are exposed and uninsulated. Once the water inside freezes, it begins to expand and put pressure on the walls of the pipe. If the ice causes the pipe to burst, you can have hundreds of gallons of water spilling into your home. Our technicians at ServiceMaster Restoration by Complete have experience dealing with burst pipes. We will quickly remove the water that has spilled into your home and set up our drying and dehumidification equipment to dry the area.
