Wildfire Danger In NJ
The wildfire danger usually remains high until around Memorial Day.
There have been 336 wildfires so far this year in New Jersey. State Fire Warden Gregory McLaughlin says the risk of woodlands fires is high now because the hot weather and low humidity causes combustible material on the forest floor to dry out quickly. McLaughlin says the wildfire danger usually remains high until around Memorial Day. He says 98 percent of wildfires are caused by humans. He says people might not realize ashes or coals from their barbecue grills are still hot. If you live near a wooded area, take some simple precautions such as cleaning up dead leaves around your house, cleaning the pine needles out of your gutters, cutting dead branches off of the trees, and keeping your plants watered and hydrated.
If your home is affected by a wildfire, SERVPRO of Bordentown/Pemberton is here to help you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year to respond to your disaster.

Commercial Water Damage
If water damage strikes your business at any time let SERVPRO of Bordentown/Pemberton clean it "Like it never even happened".
If water damage strikes your business at any time SERVPRO of Bordentown/Pemberton has the trained technicians and skilled knowledge to clean the disaster up "Like it never even happened." Fast response is the key to minimizing the loss in water damage jobs. Water starts to evaporate on its own if the cleanup process doesn't start immediately. The air absorbs the evaporated water and redistributes the moisture to other items like ceiling tiles and drywall. The result is secondary damage that can dramatically increase the claims cost. Some examples include:
- Mold spores start to colonize
- Hardwood floors start to buckle
- Plaster and sheetrock sag and crack
- Vinyl loosens from the floor
If you have any water damage you can call us at (609)894-8555 or check out more on our website at http://www.SERVPRObordentownpemberton.com/commercial-water-damage
Attic Water Damage
Weather in colder climates can cause ice dams to develop on the roof, which can leak into the attic when snow and ice melt.
The attic is much like the basement in that it is an area of your home that may be largely ignored for an extended period of time. Stains, mold and wet or swollen installation are signs of a leak in the attic. If your roof has cracked, curled, or missing shingles, damaged flashing or signs of wind/rain damage, it could be vulnerable to leaks, which could result in water damage. Weather in colder climates can cause ice dams to develop on the roof, which can leak into the attic when snow and ice melt. Pay attention to possible problem areas including around roof vents and chimneys, the flashing (where the roof connects with the walls) and the valleys (where two roof planes connect) to help prevent water damage. If you've had water damage in your attic call SERVPRO of Bordentown/Pemberton to dry the structure and prevent secondary water damage like mold. You can call us at (609)894-8555 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Sump Pump Failure
In most cases, sump pumps fail during rain events.
In most cases, sump pumps fail during rain events. When that happens, the water usually seeps in through the foundation or basement walls and begins pooling in the lowest area of the basement, gradually rising as more water comes in. So what do you do at that point? Here are a few suggestions we have to help you navigate a difficult situation.
First, you’re going to need to get the sump pump fixed. A plumber is going to be necessary to get the sump pump back up and running. Immediately call a licensed plumber in your area and get on their schedule as quickly as possible. Second, call SERVPRO of Bordentown/Pemberton to begin the water mitigation process so we can clean the mess up "Like it never even happened".

Did Your Home Suffer From Rainwater Damage?
Your gutters must also be cleaned and clear of debris so the rain water can flow through them and the downspouts should be pointed away from the house
Rain is essential to our natural environment but it can become a problem if it gets into your home. One of the most common sources of water damage in a home is rain and it can get into your home in so many ways including leaks or seepage in the foundation, poorly sealed windows, and openings in the roof or siding. Excessive rainfall can lead to considerable damage in a home as it has the potential to flood basements, ruin foundations and building materials, and contribute to mold growth. It is very important for every homeowner to be aware of how rain can lead to water damage in their homes.
