Walking through the flooded office.
When a water heater on the 3rd floor of this Holmdel corporation leaked, the owner immediately called SERVPRO of Freehold to dry out the 60,000 square foot building. The employees walking into the office were alarmed by the water flowing across the carpeted areas of the office, but remained calm until our emergency crew arrived on the scene. Using special extraction tools, the expertly trained technicians were able to quickly remove the standing water from the office floors. The affected carpet and trim were removed and special equipment was placed to completely dry the structure.

Water Trapped Behind the Wall
Water damage behind the wall due to storm run-off from outside.
Even though SERVPRO of Freehold was called in to dry out a commercial building which had wet carpets from a water purifier, we took the initiative to take care on an ongoing issue behind the walls. The water originated from improper run off due to the building's gutters and outside slope. We picked up some leader extensions so that the water would run away from the building. As you can see, over time the water had run behind the walls causing the paint to peel.
Always take some time to inspect your property around your window wells and foundation walls. Clear your gutters and add some gutter down spout extensions so the water does not end up against your foundation. Any water that lays there could work its way into your home and in the future cause possible mold issues.
SERVPRO of Freehold will always provide you with advice to avoid future losses and develop an emergency ready plan for you.
