flood in kitchen Having issues with flood damage in your Plainsboro home? Call SERVPRO to mitigate the problem.

Our professionals can offer fast extraction and thorough cleaning after flood loss scenarios in your house. 

One of the more alarming aspects of natural flooding in your Plainsboro home is contamination and health hazards. Carefully assessing each situation, including how floodwater penetrated the house, can provide the right information to determine potential risks with flood loss scenarios.

While flood cleanup for Plainsboro homes is necessary to some degree in every loss incident that our professionals address, the severity of these situations vary from one to the next. Natural flooding is almost always considered contaminated, as interaction with health-hazardous substances like sewage and bacteria cannot get fully ruled out.

What Are the Risks of Contaminated Water? 

While there are always homeowners debating the possibility of DIY restoration, exposure to contaminated water could cause health effects. Our SERVPRO professionals utilize the appropriate personal protective equipment to keep our team and occupants of the house safe from:

  • Bacteria
  • Viral Pathogens
  • Chemicals
  • Sewage
  • Mud

While exposure to contaminated waters might mean controlled demolition and reconstruction, we can help with a full-service approach that keeps the full spectrum of the work under the same roof. Give our SERVPRO of East Brunswick / Princeton Meadows team a call today at (732) 432-9800.
