Water discovered on the floor Monday morning.

The manager of a real estate office in Weehawken walked into a flooded office Monday morning and was shocked at the amount of water on the floor.

Water Trapped Behind the Wall

Paint peeling from a wall. Water behind the wall from runoff.

Even though SERVPRO of South Jersey City/Bayonne was called in to dry out a commercial building which had wet carpets from a water purifier, we took the initiative to take care on an ongoing issue behind the walls. The water originated from improper run off due to the building's gutters and outside slope. We picked up some leader extensions so that the water would run away from the building. As you can see, over time the water had run behind the walls causing the paint to peel.

Always take some time to inspect your property around your window wells and foundation walls. Clear your gutters and add some gutter down spout extensions so the water does not end up against your foundation. Any water which lays there will most likely work its way into your home and could eventually create mold issues.

SERVPRO of South Jersey City/Bayonne will always provide you with advice to avoid future losses and develop an emergency ready plan for you.
