Flooded Gym in South Plainfield

During a severe freeze this gym sustained multiple pipe bursts which caused flooding in several rooms including the gym. They were very happy when we were able to have it dried out in time for weekend basketball games

Air Flow Necessary

Air Flow Necessary

This photo was from underneath a set of basement stairs. There was no flood but humidity in the basement was at very high levels with no type of air flow. It is very important to have both a dehumidifier and air flow in damp basements

Hidden Mold

Hidden Mold

We were called to this Piscataway basement because the homeowner noticed a bad smell. They had a flood and thought there was no problem once the water on the floor was cleaned up but didn't realize that the walls were also affected. We had to do flood cuts all around.

The owner of this Piscataway kitchen left a pot cooking on the stove and went into another room. There was not too much damage from fire but smoke affected the entire house. The homeowner was pleasantly surprised that we cleaned the entire house so quickly.

Raining Indoors

Raining Indoors

During a New Jersey cold snap a pipe in this house burst while the homeowner was away and water ran for several days before being shut off. By the time we were called in the weather had warmed up. When we arrived the humidity inside the house was so high that these beads of water had formed on several ceilings and it was literally raining inside their house. This homeowner learned a very valuable lesson, albeit a little late, that it is a good idea to shut the water to the house off at the main when leaving for vacation.

Heavy Rain Burns out Sump Pump

Heavy Rain Burns out Sump Pump

During very heavy thunderstorms the sump pump in this Piscataway basement was overworked and burned out. By the time we were called in there was over 2 feet of water in this basement. Before the sump pump could be replaced we had to pump out the water using a submersible pump so the plumber can access the area where the sump pump was located. Sadly, this homeowner was storing a lot of things in the basement which were ruined. He has since learned to store things off the floor and to use plastic totes instead of cardboard boxes. Better late than never!

Ingenuity at Work

We had a commercial building with double layer sub floor. A small area had been affected by a flood and the building owners did not want to remove the top layer. So we covered it with plastic that was sealed air tight and sent in warm dry air from a dehumidifier. It worked like a charm!
