SERVPRO Techs Can Perform the Flood Restoration Actions Needed for Wayne Commercial Properties

Many businesses utilize Wayne warehouse spaces as the choice for a location. The slab floors are usually easy to clean, take paint well for a more finished look, and be disinfected when needed, such as a sewage backup or floodwater with contaminants.

SERVPRO recommends professional flood damage mitigation in Wayne commercial properties for several reasons such as:

Professional Flood Restoration Avoids Potential Issues

  • The water is likely to have contaminants if it is groundwater inside the facility and needs handling as a biohazard
  • Water migrates and can wick into walls
  • Elevated humidity levels may affect stock stored in cardboard

SERVPRO technicians have the equipment and experience to test the water and determine any locally present bacterium or pathogenic elements requiring treatment from biocides or antimicrobial solutions. Also, if the water wicked into sheetrock or wood on the walls, it can get found, dried, and disinfected. SERVPRO technicians perform interior air humidity readings to ascertain if items within the warehouse need to be covered during the mitigation process or moved to a safe, secure area to ensure no damage occurs. Most of all, the team at SERVPRO works to get the warehouse reopened quickly and working as normal.

SERVPRO of Wayne at (973) 546-4977 handles big and small commercial flood damage cleanup and restoration in Wayne properties. The technicians are available 24/7 and arrive quickly when needed.

Floodwaters cause extensive damage to West Milford homes every year. The water is contaminated, soaks everything it comes in contact with, and can cause ongoing damage if it is not removed.

SERVPRO offers Emergency Service Storm Damage Cleanup in Wayne

The township of Wayne is located in Passaic County, NJ, and has an approximate population of 54,000 people. Wayne is less than 20 miles from Midtown Manhattan, New York. The land was purchased from the Lenape Native Americans in 1695. Many historical events have occurred in the area.

One such event centers around the naming of the Preakness Stakes. In 1868, a gentleman named Milton H Sanford purchased a racehorse for $4000, a tremendous amount of money at the time. He called the horse Preakness. This horse went on to win its first race at the new Pimlico Race Course in Maryland. Future races were named after the first horse to win a race at its track. It is now known as the Preakness Stakes, and the Preakness is the 2nd race in the Triple Crown of racing for thoroughbreds.

There are many activities to consider being so close to New York and the historical events in the area. We have assembled a few that many residents enjoy:

  • Dey Mansion Washington’s Headquarters
  • Laurelwood Arboretum
  • Willowbrook Mall
  • Van Riper House Museum
  • Terhune Memorial Park
  • Schuyler Colfax-House
  • Mead-Van Duyne Historic House Museum
  • Tintle Park
  • Shea Center for the Performing Arts

Dey Mansion Washington’s Headquarters

The Dey Mansion was built in 1770 by Theunis Dey. General George Washington used the homes as his headquarters during Oct-November 1780. 

Both Dey and Washington had much in common. They were the same age, large landowners, agriculturalists, and both believed in serving their respective counties and states in a government capacity.

In present times, you can visit the mansion, now museum, and experience the life of the wealthy back in General Washington’s time. There are guided mansion tours, exhibits, and collections to view. The museum is normally open from Wed to Sun from 9 am to 5 pm. However, visitors should plan their trip and confirm the availability of tours and access to the museum in advance during current health issues.

Van Riper House Museum - Terhune Memorial Park

Albert Payson Terhune was an American Journalist, dog breeder, and author. He became well known for his novels he wrote about his collies and his breeding of collies at Sunnybank kennels. He passed away in Feb 1942, leaving his estate, Sunnybank in Wayne, NJ, where many of his beloved dogs are buried. Visitors can view the graves of many of the dogs mentioned in his literary works, the museum, his books, and dog awards at the Van Riper-Hopper Historic House Museum.

Wayne, NJ, is a town steeped in history. It got its start in 1694 and played an essential role in the War for Independence. At that time, the area was part of Saddle River Township. The Dey Mansion was used as George Washington’s headquarters in the summer of 1780 and then again later in the year. The Marquis de Lafayette made his headquarters at the Van Saun House close by. The township is named after “Mad” Anthony Wayne, a Revolutionary War hero.

Dey Mansion

Once known as the Bloomsburg Manor, this Georgian-style home sits on 377 acres in Preakness Valley Park. The home, which originally sat on 600 acres, was built by Colonel Theunis Dey sometime in the 1770s. It is now a museum and living history site and can be visited year-round. Theunis was a colonel in the militia during the Revolutionary War and had met Washington previously. This led him to offer his home to Washington for his headquarters in 1780. The mansion played a unique role in the war. Peak events included:

• 4 rooms were used as military war rooms by Alexander Hamilton, Tench Tilghman, James McHenry, and Robert H. Harrison.

• Visitors during that time include the Marquis de Lafayette, Major General Lord Stirling, General Anthony Wayne, and Benedict Arnold.

• While there, in July of 1780, Washington wrote over 946 pieces of correspondence and commissioned Arnold to West Point.

Mold Remediation. Services Needed in West Milford

SERVPRO can provide quality water damage restoration services in West Milford

If a pipe inside your home breaks, the moisture can quickly soak into your walls, subfloors and increase your indoor humidity levels. Drying out your structural components can require a mixture of air movers and dehumidifiers to aid with evaporation and drying out your building materials and contents.

When our SERVPRO crew provides water damage restoration in West Milford, we must first figure out how many dehumidifiers it takes to remove moisture from the air within your affected space. The amount of dehumidifiers we use depends on the following:

  • Physical Aspects of the Room: One major factor that can change the number of dehumidifiers used is how many porous materials such as carpets, upholstered furniture, clothing, paper products, and unfinished wood exist. A more considerable amount of items that can easily absorb moisture can require more dehumidification.
  • The Capacity of the Dehumidifiers: Manufacturers measure a dehumidifier's ability in the following two ways:
  1. The machines get measured by how many square feet they can condition per minute.
  2. The unit's makers also test how many water gallons the dehumidifier can remove within 24 hours at 80 degrees Fahrenheit and 60% relative humidity.

If you ever notice wet building materials after a pipe breaks, call SERVPRO of Wayne at (973) 546-4977.

SERVPRO can always assist you with mold remediation and cleanup in Wayne

If a fungus ever develops anywhere inside your home, it can cause foul odors and possibly some adverse health effects and make the items' surface look contaminated. Depending on where the contamination has grown, it can be relatively easy or challenging to remove.

Whenever our SERVPRO technicians work on mold remediation cleanup in Wayne, we primarily focus on removing the contamination present on the surface of your contents and building materials. One way to remove fungal formations on the surfaces of items inside your house is to implement dry ice blasting. This method has the following benefits:

  • Remediates Mold Quicker: Dry ice blasting can be a much faster way to remove surface contamination.
  • It's a Less Abrasive Method: These devices can remove formations without harming delicate surfaces.
  • Does Not Add Moisture: This method is considered a dry way to remove fungi because it does not make the affected materials wet.
  • Decontamination and Deodorization Capabilities: Dry ice blasting can eliminate spores and neutralize malodor particles.
  • Ability to Access Hard to Reach Areas: This blasting technique gives restorers the ability to remove contamination in tight corners and around wiring and plumbing fixtures.

If you ever need fungal formations removed from your home, call SERVPRO of Wayne at (973) 546-4977.
