Water Damage Ask the Expert - Flood and Water Damage Restoration Getting your life back is your priority. Its ours too.

With every flood comes a flood of emotions.  What will I do?  Who do I call?  What is going to happen?  Where can you turn when your most precious asset, your home, has been damaged by water?  That's where SERVPRO can help.  At SERVPRO of Fredericton, we are Faster to Any Size Disaster.  We know that you don't just want things clean, you want your life back as well.  As a member of a team with 48 years of experience and more than 1,700 locations throughout North America, we have the experience and expertise to return your damaged home to pre-loss condition to help make it "Like it never even happened."

Not every Contractor is a Restoration Contractor

Water damage restoration requires a high degree of skill and certification in order to comply with your insurance company's requirements.  Your contractor needs to be able to respond 24/7/365 to whatever your need is.  Not all contractors are willing to do this.  What's more, training and equipment specific to water damage restoration are needed in order to dry your home as quickly as possible so that you can get your life back in order.  SERVPRO of Fredericton has highly trained technicians who adhere to industry accepted standards developed by the IICRC, an independent body that works with insurance companies and property managers to develop industry best practices.

We use equipment that is specific to water restoration, including commercial dehumidifiers and air movers that have large scale capacity, as compared to hardware-store models.  This equipment is supported by highly specialized monitoring equipment and proprietary software.

As a consumer, when you are selecting a restoration contractor you need to ask a number of important questions:

  • Will the contractor respond immediately?
  • Do they have the skills and training to do the job properly?
  • Do they have the proper experience and certifications?
  • Do they have the right equipment?
  • Do they carry the proper insurance?

If you can answer YES to all of these questions, then you should feel comfortable knowing that you have selected the right water damage restoration contractor.

What happens once I call SERVPRO?

Most importantly, SERVPRO will respond immediately.  The longer water damage sits, the more secondary damage there could be, and most insurance policies state that homeowners must mitigate further damage by taking action immediately.  Therefore, an immediate response is paramount.

After the initial walkthrough and inspection, the SERVPRO technician will inform you of what the required steps are.  Beyond this, we use our expertise and specialty equipment to complete the drying process, properly disinfect, make any necessary repairs, and return your home to pre-loss conditions ASAP.  SERVPRO of Fredericton also completes the reconstruction, where necessary.  Your technician will update you regularly as the drying and reconstruction process unfolds.

Getting your life back is your priority.  It's ours too.

At SERVPRO of Fredericton, we can help you through one of life's most difficult and stressful experiences.  At SERVPRO, we can help make it "Like it never even happened" by calling 451-9000

  • What Not to Do:

    Does Your Fredericton Home Have A Mold Problem?

    6/29/2016 (Permalink)

    Microscopic mold spores naturally occur almost everywhere, both outdoors and indoors. This makes it impossible to remove all mold from a home or business. Therefore, mold remediation reduces the mold spore count back to its natural or baseline level. Some restoration businesses advertise “mold removal” and even guarantee to remove all mold, which is a fallacy. Consider the following mold facts:

    • Mold is present almost everywhere, indoors and outdoors.
    • Mold spores are microscopic and float along in the air and may enter your home through windows, doors, or AC/heating systems or even hitch a ride indoors on your clothing or a pet.
    • Mold spores thrive on moisture. Mold spores can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water. These colonies may produce allergens and irritants.
    • Before mold remediation can begin, any sources of water or moisture must be addressed. Otherwise, the mold may return.
    • Mold often produces a strong, musty odor and can lead you to possible mold problem areas.
    • Even higher-than-normal indoor humidity can support mold growth. Keep indoor humidity below 45 percent.

    If your home or business has a mold problem, we can inspect and assess your property and use our specialized training, equipment, and expertise to remediate your mold infestation.
