Fire and Smoke Damage

This family’s Metuchen home suffered from a fire caused by a fan issue. It’s always devastating when a family experiences a house fire, but SERVPRO of Edison worked hard to recover the structure and contents. We were able to remove the soot and even the smell of the smoke from the home, so that the family returned to a safe, clean space. Our goal is always to make your home “Like it never even happened.” 

Protecting your Edison Property

At SERVPRO of Edison, we understand that the property we are working on is not just a house, it is your home. Because we understand just how devastating water, fire, and sewage losses can be, we take every precaution to ensure that your property is not damaged any further, whether that is through covering your kitchen in plastic (as pictured above) or you floors in paper to keep them protected.

What to Expect

When you call, we will ask several questions regarding your water damage emergency. These questions will help us determine what equipment and resources to bring, including how many trained SERVPRO Professionals may be needed. 

Our SERVPRO Representative will ask several questions: 

  • Your name and contact information
  • Your insurance information (if applicable)
  • The street address of the water-damaged business
  • When did the flooding or water damage occur?
  • What caused the water damage (if known)?
  • Is there electricity available (on-site)? 

Mold Following a Storm

After a storm struck in the winter, mold began to grow on a pitch of drywall hidden behind the furnace that had gotten wet during the storm. By the time the family discovered the mold, it had spread to other walls. They then called SERVPRO of Edison whose trained technicians that were able to test and remove the mold growth, and then restore the space to preloss conditions.

Water Loss and Drying

Flooding and water damage is very invasive. Water quickly spreads throughout your home and gets absorbed into floors, walls, furniture, and more.  SERVPRO of Edison arrives quickly and starts the water extraction process almost immediately. This immediate response helps to minimize the damage and the cleaning and restoration costs.

Thunderstorms cause extensive flooding

This family’s Edison home suffered serious damage after a recent thunderstorm. Thankfully they called SERVPRO of Edison and we were able to help them and several other Edison families clean up debris and restore the property to preloss conditions or prepare for a remodel. The homeowners were grateful that our 24/7 services were available to them in their time of need. 

If your home has been damaged by severe floods or storms, call us right away at 732-248-9555. Disaster can strike when we least expect it, but SERVPRO of Edison will be there to help you weather the storm.

Pipe Burst

SERVPRO of Edison has the expertise and equipment to mitigate residential water losses just like this one.

Proper Equipment Is Crucial

To complete any job correctly, one needs the proper equipment. That's why SERVPRO of Edison ensures that we are equipped with top of the line equipment to service all your restoration needs.

Faster To Any Size Disaster

With our fleet of vehicles that are always equipped with the tools and supplies necessary to clean up any issue, SERVPRO of Edison specializes in being faster to any size disaster. 

Hoarder Basement Cleaned Up

SERVPRO of Edison takes pride in their work.  After removing the wet contents, and drying the structure, the basement was encapsulated.  The clean basement is "Like it never even happened." 

Hoarder Basement Sewer Backup

This was the state of the basement when we arrived.  The owner had significant content in the basement.  The sewer had been backed up and the water in the basement left for a long time.  The transformation of the basement was amazing.

Water damage sources

Water damage can come from any number of sources.  Whether it comes from a broken pipe, an overflowing toilet, a failed water heater, or a bad storm.  In this unusual instance, an above ground pool collapsed sending water crashing through the back door, instantly flooding the entire finished basement.

Drying Equipment

After extracting water from carpets, moisture still remains in the affected areas.  Think of it like your laundry - even though the spin cycle removes a lot of the moisture in the washing machine, you still put your clothes through the dryer.  SERVPRO of Edison uses dehumidifiers and air movers to remove any remaining moisture to ensure that the home is healthy and dry.

In this photo, water came from the room above, so two air movers are aimed at the ceiling, one is drying the carpet and the dehumidifier works to reduce humidity in the entire room.

Water extraction

One of the most important factors in any water damage event is a good extraction.  In the photo, one of SERVPRO of Edison's highly trained technicians uses an extraction wand to remove water from a flooded carpet.  

Mold on the underside of wooden floorboards

The mold shown in this picture was the result of a water damage that was not properly addressed by the homeowner.  A sink overflowed in the kitchen on the first level of the house, and though the room appeared to be dry after a quick mopping, they never thought to check the underside of the floor.  Moisture had gotten trapped in the insulation directly below the kitchen and kept it pressed up against the bottom side of the flooring. As a result, mold grew on the rafters and sub-floor.  SERVPRO of Edison handled the mold remediation by removing the wet insulation, treating the affected area applied antimicrobial techniques and drying the remaining wooden structure.

SERVPRO Uses HEPA Filter Air Scrubbers on Mold Remediations

During a mold remediation it is important to control for mold spores and other particulate matter that may become airborne.  That is why SERVPRO of Edison uses High Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) Filter Air Scrubbers.  The picture here shows just how much dust and debris one Air Scrubber can capture and clean out of the air on a typical job site.

Mold being HEPA Vacuumed

SERVPRO of Edison adheres to strict industry standards of how to safely handle mold remediation.  One essential part of our procedure involves a HEPA Vacuum to remove mold spores to minimize the risk of further airborne contamination.

Fallen candle ignites laundry, causes extensive damage.

The fire damage in this closet was caused when a candle was accidentally knocked off the dresser into a pile of laundry on the floor.  Notice how even though the fire began on the floor, the majority of the smoke damage is up at the ceiling.  The whole bedroom where the fire started needed to have the drywall removed and the framework encapsulated.  Smoke and soot spread throughout the rest of the house and SERVPRO of Edison worked to make this disaster, "Like it never even happened."

Encapsulated wood framing after fire damage

After a serious fire, like the one in this Woodbridge home, it is necessary to remove as much of the charred structure as possible.  However, smoke odor can persist even after the worst of it is gone.  This photo shows how SERVPRO of Edison encapsulated the remaining framework to seal in smoke odor.

SERVPRO doing a thorough cleaning after a fire

Tom, one of our project managers, demonstrates the proper way to remove soot and smoke residue from drywall.  The homeowner attempted to clean this fire damage by themselves and caused the soot to smear and lock permanently into the paint.  When they realized their error, they called SERVPRO of Edison to bring much needed expertise.

Testing for Smoke Damage

One of the techniques SERVPRO of Edison employs to determine the extent of damages caused by a fire is shown in this photo.  Our technicians use "Chemsponges" to remove soot and smoke residue from the walls and ceiling.  By placing an "X" within a square, we are able to demonstrate how much of a difference our cleaning process can make.

Overnight flood at Assisted Living Center

SERVPRO of Edison is at the ready 24/7.  This assisted living center had a sprinkler head break in the middle of the night and SERVPRO responded immediately.  Our technicians know that a fast response is important when dealing with a commercial water damage, especially when it affects the living arrangements of our senior citizens.

Monitoring drying process at a dental office

When this dental office flooded, SERVPRO of Edison came to the rescue to dry and sanitize the affected rooms.  You can see one of our Water Remediation Technicians, Kevin, in this photo taking special care to monitor the drying process.

Healthcare facility flood

The water damage in this healthcare facility was caused by a construction crew working after hours on a renovation.  A water supply line broke sending water throughout 17 exam rooms and labs.  SERVPRO of Edison had a crew on site within the hour and worked late into the night to extract water.  The photo shows the special care our crews take to remove wet insulation that was trapped inside the walls.  Hospitals and doctors offices use a special type of flooring to prevent the spread of infection - so the floor and walls meet at a curve.  With this in mind, our crews cut 6 inches above the intersection to remove wet insulation and allow for easy repairs.

Retail store floods in the mall

A high end retail store in the mall all of a sudden found themselves in the middle of a flood.  The restaurant next door had an ice machine break, causing the water to flood into the adjacent units.  SERVPRO of Edison arrived quickly to extract the water and get them back in business!

Monitoring water damage after heavy rains

Heavy rains caused flash flooding in the Edison area and some of that rain water found it's way into this ground level family room.  After extracting the standing water, SERVPRO of Edison removed the carpet and pad and placed Dehumidifiers and air movers to continue drying the sheetrock.  Our technician can be seen in the background of this photo monitoring the drying progress in the walls.

SERVPRO rescues hardwood floor from storm damage

Unusually strong winds blew rain water sideways, and into an exhaust vent in this Woodbridge home.  The rain water seeped through the plaster ceilings and soaked into the hardwood floors. The photo shows SERVPRO of Edison's drying equipment including dehumidifiers, air movers and the Injectidry system.  The injectidry is specialty drying equipment that removes moisture from between and beneath the hardwood floor slats.

Winter storm causes water damage in Colonia

Last year's "Polar Vortex" forced freezing cold winds to blow for days throughout the Edison area.  SERVPRO of Edison was called in to this Colonia home after a pipe froze and caused the ceiling to collapse.  

Safety is our #1 Concern

Each of our highly trained technicians at SERVPRO of Edison is equipped with full face respirators.  Our crew gets FIT tested annually to make sure the masks keep them safe when handling dangerous mold.

Carpet Cleaning in Action

After cleaning the carpets at a local church, Isaiah was eager to use SERVPRO of Edison's "Extreme Extractor". This motorized extraction tool uses the technician's body weight to squeeze more water from the carpet.

Suit up!

No job is too large for SERVPRO of Edison. Our highly trained staff suited up to clean a waste water treatment facility that backed up 40’ deep in dirty water.

Thermal Imaging Camera

Kevin demonstrates how SERVPRO of Edison's thermal imaging camera can help locate moisture in a home or commercial building that has been affected by a flood. Notice how the bottle of water he is holding shows up a deep blue on our camera? This tool helps us determine the extent of the damage so we can make it "Like it Never Even Happened"
