Air Scrubber

Air Scrubber in Action

Here is a photo of an air scrubber we use for several different reasons but in this example we are using it to remove mold spores in the air while we perform mold remediation. An air scrubber is an air filtration system with a HEPA filter that removes particles in the air and limits cross-contamination. 

Mold In Kitchen

Take a look at the amount of mold found behind these lower kitchen cabinets. Unfortunately, it is hard to check for mold behind cabinets without actually removing them. It is common for there to be some mold due to the amount of moisture found nearby from appliances like a dish washer which can have leaky connections or pipes. That is why it is important to check the connections between these types of appliances to make sure moisture is not escaping. 

Large Chain Restaurant

Local large chain restaurant in Paramus, NJ suffers from a broken sprinkler system pipe. This photo shows the main entrance to the restaurant where the waiting area for customers is covered with about a half an inch of standing water in some areas.

Take a look at how much water this carpet is holding on to. Here you can see the homeowner was trying to extract the water with their own shop vac but they weren't able to handle the large carpeted area with all the water it had absorbed.

Surgical Eye Center

This photo shows this surgical eye center in Fair Lawn, NJ undergoing mitigation. Our team set up containment to keep the area as sterile as possible. The reason for the containment was due to asbestos found on site as well as poor air quality testing showing high mold spores count. We tried to limit any contamination with the unaffected areas. 

Generator in Action

Sometimes we fall into situations where a loss site we are called to doesn't have any power for us to run or use equipment. We, at SERVPRO Of Paramus, will still be able to get the job done by providing a generator on site to produce electricity to get everything up and running.

Sneak Peak Inside Our Warehouse

Here is a shot of one section of our warehouse where we store some of our drying equipment. This 14,000 square foot facility is not just used to hold our equipment and tools but can be used to store customer belongings that need to be held in storage until mitigation/restoration is completed. 

Let's Get These Floors Dry

This water loss located in River Vale, NJ started in the second floor bathroom and made its way through the ceiling below and onto these hardwood floors shown.

Yankee Stadium

On Saturday I had the good fortune of taking my daughter to her first Yankees game. It was against the Red Sox, sold-out and a beautiful, hot day. The Yanks lost but I could not have had a better day with my daughter. 2 years ago when Derek Jeter retired, we watched his last game together at home. She turned to me and said "Great, now I'll never get to see him play in person". Now it's Brett Gardner, she saw him play AND he hit a Home Run.

I hate when the weather changes. Sometimes though, there's beauty in autumn. I took this picture off my front deck. The leaves are all gone and I can see out to the mountains. Sometimes you just have to take a minute and enjoy the things we usually take for granted.
