How Do I Get Water Out of My Server Room in Voorhees?
Call us today and get your business cleaned, dried, and back to normal.
SERVPRO knows electronics with water exposure in Voorhees businesses need special handling
A data center is the lifeblood of any business or organization. When a water damage event happens, that involves this area of the building, and it is crucial to get professional cleanup services as quickly as possible to ensure the best outcome. Water leaves behind minerals that have the potential to deteriorate circuit boards, and prolonged exposure to high levels of moisture can play havoc with the equipment. Common losses incurred from damage to servers include:
• Loss of customer data and information critical to daily operations
• Failure of internal communications
• Corruption of important documents
What is the Best Process for Commercial Water Removal in a Data Center?
SERVPRO technicians have extensive experience handling commercial water removal in Voorhees properties that affect their computer equipment, including server racks and data centers. The techs use portable pumps most often to extract the water from within a structure. The ease of mobility allows them to move around angles and corners to ensure all the moisture gets removed.
The most traditional data center set up involves numerous servers and switches stacked on rack units. This setup is ideal for maintenance; however, when there is a water loss event such as a pipe break in a ceiling, this can incur large amounts of loss as water runs down through the rack.
What Should Happen First After Water Damage in a Server Room?
Some preliminary actions property owners can take to limit the loss before the techs arrive is:
• Turn off electricity to the loss area
• Move out server racks if it is safe to do so
• Avoid "testing" equipment
The technicians can remove the equipment to a safe area and arrange for an industry professional to inspect and test equipment and recommend any repairs needed before reuse.
General Tactics After Water Loss in a Data Center
It is not unusual for structural elements in the server room to require removal due to damage. Sheetrock wicks moisture rapidly, and once it begins to buckle or warp, it needs disposal as a loss. Depending on the type of flooring, it may lose adhesion to the substrate and need to get removed for drying and cleaning. Industrial carpets are commonly used as flooring in data centers and usually have a rubber backing. This type of floor covering often has one of the best outcomes after a water loss as it is made to repel liquids and usually has the potential for reuse after drying and cleaning. SERVPRO techs inspect these items for the potential for restoration through cleaning methods and reuse. With their general contractor's license #HIC 13VH01276600, the techs have the knowledge and expertise to rebuild any part of the building that water loss damaged.
Drying the loss area usually involves the use of air movers in tandem with dehumidification equipment. In cases where seepage occurred into the subfloor, the techs deploy drying mats to dry the flooring rapidly. Afterward, they clean the areas with professional-grade cleaners to leave the room disinfected and deodorized. This inhibits the potential for any type of musty water odors remaining within the space.
Monitoring the Drying Process is Important
Highly humid conditions are bad for computer equipment, and during the drying process, the technicians carefully monitor the water vapor levels in the air with their equipment. This attention to detail helps ensure that the interior humidity levels get returned to levels conducive to a good operating environment for both people and equipment. Until the room verifies as attaining drying goals, the final step for cleaning and making any repairs cannot occur.
Avoiding Water Loss Problems in the Future
Once the mitigation efforts complete, SERVPRO technicians give property owners a tour of the loss area and go over actions taken, repairs that got done, and if anything further should get done to restore the data center room to full functionality completely. This information gets compiled into a report that includes photos and detailed descriptions to assist property owners in expediting any insurance claims.
The techs can recommend preventative measures for avoiding water loss issues in the future by taking actions such as waterproofing the server room or the installation of environmental monitoring. This equipment alerts property owners whenever there is a change, such as elevated moisture levels, smoke, or chemicals detected in the immediate area.
SERVPRO of Haddon Heights / Voorhees at (856) 566-3388 has the training and equipment to deal with any size commercial water removal in local businesses. Call us today and get your business cleaned, dried, and back to normal.

How Does Technology Assist with Water Damage Cleanup in Haddon Heights?
We continually train so that we are up to date on the latest and best practices to restore your water damaged home.
Pros and Cons of Thermography Detection in Haddon Heights
A considerable amount of resources goes into having the latest and most reliable equipment to address water loss incidents in Haddon Heights. While you might suspect that most of this has to do with equipment designed to dry and restore the home, many levels of discovery and detection must happen before this drying can occur. Investing in the cutting-edge technologies that empower our restoration technicians to efficiently locate moisture in homes benefits the customer and our team simultaneously.
Thermal imagery is one of the most readily used pieces of technology in our job scoping equipment as it can quickly give crew chiefs a better eye on the migration of water damage in Haddon Heights homes. Much like any equipment that gets used in the restoration industry, it has areas of application where it is less effective. Understanding the pros and cons of this equipment allows our responding SERVPRO technicians to make informed decisions about the best detection devices to use on damp areas of your residence.
Benefits of Using Thermal Imagery
- You can get instantaneous information
- You can get a better look at the material affected
- Unit is portable and easy to use
- Readings are not complicated
- Information in real-time
Disadvantages of Thermography
- You can get false positives of water damage
- You cannot see into a wall or structural cavities
Because of how readily this equipment gets used, the benefits outweigh the disadvantages, especially with available devices to corroborate moisture level findings with thermal imagery. The deployment of surface moisture meters and probing moisture detection tools can showcase the presence of damp pockets and the concentration of this water damage in areas we have identified with thermal imagery.
Thorough water damage drying and restoration involves having the right information from the start. Our SERVPRO of Haddon Heights / Voorhees team puts the time and effort into having the best detection tools to make shorter work of the inspection and assessment phases before mitigation begins. Give us a call anytime that disasters strike at (856) 566-3388.

Eliminating Water Damage In Your Haddon Heights Home
SERVPRO of Haddon Heights / Voorhees ensures that your home looks, “Like it never even happened.”
Eliminating Garage Water Damage from a Haddon Heights Home
When water damage strikes in your home, it may not seem like as big of a deal when it happens in the garage. However, garages typically have plenty of vulnerable structural materials. From unfinished concrete floors to wall joists and insulation, the repair costs can be both immense and frustrating for homeowners to tackle on their own.
If your Haddon Heights home's garage suffers water damage, SERVPRO's IICRC-certified technicians can provide you with rapid mitigation services at any time of the day or night. These certified professionals receive extensive training in water damage mitigation, structural cleaning, drying, and even restoration of structures after disaster per Institute of Inspection Cleanup and Restoration Certification standards. Your local SERVPRO also offers licensed general contracting services (license #HIC #13VH01276600).
How to Seal Cracks in Your Garage
Chase the crack. This process entails using a hammer and cold chisel to remove loose edges and material that might be hiding in the crevice. Make sure the chisel runs in line with the crack and hit it firmly with your hammer to break away loose material. Clean up debris with a shop vac.
Fill the area. Vacuum again and scrub the area with a wire brush to prep the space for filling. Two-part epoxy gel or sand slurries work well for this purpose. Trowel the surface until smooth and let the material set. If you are repairing a large crack, fill the area partway with silica sand.
Smooth out your repairs. After the floor cures, you can grind it smooth and apply paint or an epoxy coating of your choosing.
SERVPRO's Careful Measurements
Moisture measurement is a must for effective mitigation. SERVPRO techs use both penetrating and non-penetrating tools, as well as infrared imaging, to determine the moisture contents of structural materials, surfaces, and even moisture behind walls. Technicians also use thermohygrometers to detect relative humidity and calculate specific humidity. This helps determine the accurate placement of drying equipment and realistic structural drying times for materials in your garage.
SERVPRO of Haddon Heights / Voorhees ensures that your home looks, “Like it never even happened.” Call (856) 566-3388 for service that can come to you 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year.

How Can I Keep the Cost of Fire Damage Restoration Reasonable?
Voorhees your fire damage needs SERVPRO’s tools and reliability.
Emergency Services to Rebuilding: SERVPRO Manages All Aspect of Structural and Contents Recovery After Your Voorhees Home Fire
Reliable and integrated response to a home fire disaster quickly calms the panic felt by homeowners in the aftermath of a household blaze. Few residents feel the need to prepare for the steep learning curve of cleaning fire residues, repairing and restoring charred structural components, and eliminating overwhelming malodors until the unspeakable happens. Even with insurance, many fear financial ruin as they survey the chaos and loss. After a fire, you do not need a mere restoration contractor. You need a disaster survival partner.
Should I Try to Clean Up Fire Damage Myself?
One of the ways you might consider economizing is to take on yourself the cleaning of fire damage in your Voorhees house. A small fire that was contained quickly might seem within your abilities. Unfortunately, you have no readily available method to determine whether the damage confined itself to space where the fire started. The residues created during the combustion of building materials, foods, grease, oils, and other contents are sometimes hard to discern and even more challenging to follow into other areas inside your home. Consider the following:
- Smoke and soot, the incompletely consumed fuels burned, drift freely on air currents.
- The heat of the fire drives residues to move upwards, even into second and third stories of your home.
- The HVAC system, frequently operating normally when the fire starts, carries smoke and soot throughout your home via its ductwork.
- Odors borne within soot particles hidden in cracks and crevices can persist long after all visible signs of fire damage disappear.
What Special Skills Do Fire and Smoke Restoration Experts Have?
Above all, SERVPRO Fire and Smoke Restoration Technicians (FSRT) offer knowledge gleaned through rigorous coursework completed through the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) and experience gained on the job with our seasoned mentors. The soiling deposited by smoke is unlike ordinary dirt and grime. Attempting to clean it up using standard techniques can at best smear and stain surfaces. At worst, failure to successfully remove fire residues permits continuous deterioration of structures and allows hazardous substances to linger in spaces where you and your family eat, sleep, play, study, and attempt to live life as usual.
How Does a Professional Fire Restoration Company Begin the Structuring of a Comprehensive Restoration?
When our crew arrives, our highly-qualified project manager assesses the damage and begins to develop a work plan. We check for safety issues before beginning the first phase of tasks. Then a series of mitigation steps ensures that the progressive harm halts. Steps might include:
- Water removal
- Disabling of the HVAC system to prevent further spread of residues
- Ventilation of affected areas
- Containment of heavily involved spaces, and set up of air scrubbing systems
- Crew members assigned to commence fire damage mitigation often don personal protective equipment (PPE) as the residues we clean up are toxic
What Does Remediation Look Like During Fire Damage Recovery?
As crews get busy with preliminary mitigation tasks, management evaluates the types and levels of smoke and soot damage in all spaces of your home. Using knowledge obtained during IICRC training and on the job experience, senior members of the team match cleaning products and methods with the residues found.
How do we handle dry soot?
Loose and ashy residues dust, brush, or vacuum away. Dry sponges, sometimes called chemical sponges, are useful in removing light coatings on surfaces.
How do we handle wet soot?
Sticky coatings often need the help of a cleaning product to loosen the bond between the soot and the surface. Soaps and detergents, often applied as sprays, contain wetting agents and surfactants that help break up the residues so it can be wiped or rinsed off.
How do we handle protein-based soot?
Tightly adhered residues that are actually dehydrated foods and cooking grease and oils are notoriously tricky to remove. Solvents and abrasive products or tools assist in dislodging this common and challenging fire damage.
What Can We Do About Charred Structures?
The heat and flames sometimes burn deeply into woodwork or other fixtures. Our crews use brushes, scrapers, and sanders to remove the damage. Sometimes the remediation is inadequate to return the materials to preloss condition. Our general contractor license permits us to offer repair and rebuilding services in these cases, saving you time, expense, and the stress of hiring additional contractors.
Take advantage of the wrap-around services of SERVPRO of Haddon Heights / Voorhees when coping with fire damage in your residence. We can manage everything from the initial assessment to rebuilding after the mitigation and remediation complete. One call to (856) 566-3388 sets the restoration ball in motion.

Flood Damage Restoration In Haddon Heights
“Like it never even happened.”
Flood Damage Restoration In Haddon Heights Can Involve Removing Different Types Of Moisture
During the late winter and early spring seasons in Haddon Heights, the combination of snow and variable temperatures can cause problems with your roof. An ice dam is a type of flood damage that can happen to houses that receive significant amounts of snowfall. What occurs is when part of your roof warms up the snow melts, but the edges of it do not; a dam can form and keep the moisture from running off.
An ice dam can cause moisture to back up and saturate your roofing materials. Once your roof starts leaking, flood damage inside your Haddon Heights residence can take place. Once your shingles get saturated, water can get beneath them and flow to your other building materials and structural components. As time goes on, the H2O can eventually find its way into the interior of your home.
Once your building materials and contents get wet, it is wise to call in a professional restoration company such as SERVPRO. We can use extraction and drying procedures to help you return your home to its preloss state, “Like it never even happened.” When items inside your home get wet, moisture can be easy or difficult to remove, depending on how it is contained within the material. The form of the moisture inside a substance is described as either free, surface or bound water.
This is the moisture that lies on top of the surface of an item, and it is the type that is dealt with first. The majority of the surface moisture gets vacuumed up by our SERVPRO technicians during the extraction process, and then the rest of it quickly dries once the air circulation created by air movers hit it.
The term "free" describes the moisture that is absorbed by a material and has not yet chemically bonded with the molecules of the substance. This kind of H2O starts evaporating when the airflow from the air movers is directed across the surface of the wet item.
Moisture is considered "bound" when it has chemically bonded with a material. The only way to remove bound H2O is to heat the wet material.
If you ever notice wet items in your house after an ice dam cause moisture to enter, call SERVPRO of Haddon Heights / Voorhees at (856) 566-3388 24 hours a day.

Drying After Water Damage in Your Voorhees Home
Having a water leak in your kitchen can cause havoc to your home and routine. It is vital to deal with it quickly to avoid any long-lasting damage. Only drying the water with old towels and mopping it up is not enough in most cases. Water can seep through vapor barriers to cause secondary damage like warped flooring, soggy drywall, or even dangerous mold infestations.
Water damage in your Voorhees home requires immediate attention. It is essential to safely remove all of the excess water out of the impacted areas and then go about the task of drying to preloss moisture levels. It is important to fully dry, but not over dry, causing the wood to become brittle, and materials to potentially shrink.
An essential part of the drying process is using air movers together with dehumidifiers to dry the materials within your home. As warm dry air exhausts out of the dehumidifiers, and air movers push the air across impacted areas at the surface level. It cuts through the boundary layer of wet, cold air and replaces it with warm, dry air.
Depending on the type of water damage, SERVPRO technicians may choose to use ventilating systems if there is any moisture trapped within cavities of the structure. Restorers can direct air using hoses into small spaces like under a kitchen cabinet. The ventilation systems use warm air to replace cold, moist air and speed up the evaporation.
Ventilating systems use either positive or negative pressure. Most commonly, the restoration specialists use positive pressure to push air into a cavity through the use of an air mover. However, some cases require negative pressure where the air is vacuumed out. SERVPRO professionals typically use this when they want to dry materials without removing what is behind the walls, keeping everything intact.
Technicians also use air filtration devices when needed to move the air and also filter it if contaminated particles are floating in the air. Usually, there are multiple filters, including HEPA (High-efficiency particulate air) filters that take out particles and trap them within the filter. The filters essentially act as air scrubbers that can attach to ducts, which allow restorers to direct the airflow, creating either negative or positive air pressure.

Voorhees Homes Receive the SERVPRO Biohazard Treatment to Secure the Property Safely
SERVPRO Can Remove a Sewage Problem from Your Voorhees Home and Make It Safe for Your Family
How Sewage Contaminates the Bathroom of Your Voorhees Home
Much like substantial water damage, sewage threats to your Voorhees home can compromise the structural integrity of nearly every surface exposed for prolonged periods. In addition to the destruction that saturation can allow, biohazardous situations like this also present the immediate threats of bacteria, pathogens, and other harmful microorganisms.
Addressing these concerns must happen quickly after a sewage backup biohazard in Voorhees homes. One of the most significant hazards that exist after an emergency like this is underestimating the threat. Severe contamination is imminent with raw sewage backing up through toilets or floor drains, and this can cause health effects for those exposed. Our SERVPRO professionals have intensive training through the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC), and Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) to thoroughly and safely address these hazards as they exist in a residence.
As briefly mentioned, contaminants and bacteria are among the most pressing threats. While surface water presents risks of its own for exposed materials sensitive to saturation like wallboard and wood trim, the circulating germs and bacteria can lead to illness and other health effects.
After a Day of Exposure
While the threat of contamination and the spread of these volatile microorganisms and bacteria can continue, after a day, there is an increased risk of structural compromise as well. While much of the affected materials must get removed to reduce the severity of health threats in the house, when our SERVPRO professionals begin mitigation, more than a day of exposure makes the salvaging of outer lying, uncontaminated materials a challenge.
Even with the removal of structural elements and fixtures like shelving, vanities, and wallboard, water can continue to migrate and affect new materials and surfaces. We strive to protect frameworks like studs and joists, so we can clear out construction materials around these bones of your house and thoroughly clean the wood with biocides, disinfectants, and antimicrobial agents.
Water damage from a sewage backup is an emergency that should not get underestimated. Trust in the fast response and the training of our SERVPRO of Haddon Heights / Voorhees recovery specialists to help. Give us a call today at (856) 566-3388.
