How SERVPRO Can Protect Amityville Attractions from Water Damage

11/17/2020 (Permalink)

back of SERVPRO service vehicles When the Horror of Water Damage Strikes Your Amityville Home--SERVPRO Is There to Help!

With many unique points of interest, Amityville and Suffolk County are attractive tourist destinations.

Amityville is one of the most recognized, or possibly feared, municipalities in New York. Its fame as it is connected to a grisly crime and subsequent globally embraced horror movie franchise brings in a steady stream of tourists and visitors all on its own. When you consider the multiple otherattractions and historic structures here in the Long Island community, a town of under 10,000 residents can feel much larger and more developed.

Lauder Museum

Protecting Amityville's history and the nearby communities that makeup Babylon here in Suffolk County has fallen to the Amityville Historical Society. Among the most comprehensive of their efforts, records, and examples of educating travelers and locals about the colorful histories of Long Island, is the Lauder Museum.

Many events and eras have influenced and developed Amityville to become what it has, and these are the exhibits and artifacts that you can expect to see in the museum. Scaled models of the famous Suffolk County structures, 19th-century replicas and parlors, historical artifacts from Amityville's most famous (or infamous) residents and visitors are just a portion of what can be discovered within this free museum in town.

The Triangle

Many of the structures throughout Suffolk County are more than 100 years old, including one of Amityville's most recognizable buildings, The Triangle. The plot of land is created by the intersecting streets and town elements Broadway, Park Avenue, and Ireland Place. The field left was enough to construct the building that still exists on the property in 1892. In the mid-1990s, the Triangle and its newer gazebo at the northern point became officially recognized as a continual and community monument dedicated to those who have served Amityville throughout the years.

Amityville Beach / Sand Island

While not every part of the year is beach season here in the northern United States, the late spring and summer months can offer favorable climates for the sun and sand. The shore at the edge of town is one of the attractions for travelers to Long Island, making shops and boardwalk activities highly popular between May and September.

Sand Island might not have many structures and homes that our SERVPRO professionals might need to restore or clean when disasters like Hurricane Sandy in 2012 strike. However, it is still a desirable location for those that do not mind the short boat ride to the island south of Amityville Beach for privacy and quiet.

The Amityville Horror House

Perhaps one of the most famous structures in all of Long Island, the house intertwined with the infamous Amityville Horror film franchise, book, and true crime, has been a hot spot for tourists since the late 1970s. The story behind the original horror film added credibility to the legend of paranormal activity that influenced inhabitants. George Lutz and his family lived in the house on Ocean Avenue for nearly a year before claiming they needed to escape the property to save their lives.

The house itself has one of the most iconic looks recognized by generations of movie-goers. Despite municipal officials attempting to slow the traffic to the area by changing the name of the street or the house number, it has done little to deter avid fans from taking a shot of the house as they drive through the neighborhood. Structural changes and upgrades to the 5-bedroom Dutch Colonial residence have changed the recognizable half-moon windows from the third floor with traditional shuddered windows to match the rest of the property better. Despite changes to the exterior, fans still find their way to the house for photo opportunities.

Famous Influences on Amityville

Despite the infamy that Amityville embodies with the controversies surrounding the events happening in the Ocean Avenue Dutch colonial, there are positive ties back to the community from Hollywood and the world of professional sports as well. While many of the most prominent and recognizable names raised or that lived part of their life here in our Long Island community are accounted in the Lauder Museum, these individuals help to shine a brighter light on our town in each era of our history.

Modern celebrities and professional athletes like Alec Baldwin and Mike James continue to inspire and influence Amityville residents today. Basketball courts where Mike James first honed the skills that would take him to the NBA's greatest stages have been renamed in his honor here in town. In years past, the village became an attractive option for history's most infamous and legendary names like sharpshooter Annie Oakley and mafia boss Al Capone.

What Can Be Done About Water Damage in Amityville Basements? 

Most of the basements constructed underneath older homes in Amityville were designed to be cellars that can keep vegetables from perishing quickly in certain seasons. Because of this, the temperature and conditions were designed to cool and moist. Even more than the persistent threat of groundwater, the basement is where the hub of plumbing services, the water heater, and even washing appliances are located

When under-insulated pipes become exposed to the cold snaps of the winter, or aging copper and lead plumbing pulls apart at weakening connections, the resulting water damage could be substantial for your property. Standing water presents immediate risks for exposed structural elements like wood framing and other porous components. Removing this surface pooling involves multiple tools ranging from various vacuums with wands and attachments to more formidable submersible pump options.

Removing water from the flooring is one considerable water mitigation step to take for damaged homes in the area, but eliminating the risks of secondary damages like mold growth hinges on thorough drying practices. As general contractors licensed through New York, we can offer a wide range of practical actions like controlled demolition, weep hole drilling, and plumbing repairs to make water damage incidents "Like it never even happened."

Water disasters can happen without warning in your basement, but our SERVPRO of Amityville / Lindenhurst team can respond fast to help. Contact us 24/7 at (631) 319-1680.

Our Specialists Discuss The Science Of Drying Your Flooded Amityville Home

1/26/2020 (Permalink)

mold growing on the wall Moisture must get dealt with, or conditions can easily get met for secondary effects like mold growth.

The Science of Drying Flooded Amityville Homes

Drying a damaged Amityville home is never a one-size-fits-all solution. We must address many of the same threats from one property to the next, but the drying solutions must change per the affected materials, migration of the damage, and the severity of the saturation. Our trained restoration professionals have extensive education through the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) in the science of drying to apply practical solutions to the projects we undertake.

Knowing the balance between airflow, humidity, and temperature can help our SERVPRO team gain control of flood damage in Amityville homes. How each of these elements can help or harm the drying process is vital information to providing efficient service to our customers.

Temperature
Heating surfaces and moist areas can often increase the drying rate, but not without drawbacks. Many surfaces cannot get heated up too quickly or too fiercely, as it can damage their appearance and functionality. Our technicians must evaluate any material that requires heat to speed up drying to ensure that the right limitations exist to protect the property above all else.

Airflow
The movement of air through a damaged region of the house is essential to continue evaporative drying efforts. In many situations, this component of drying science hinges on the use of air movers. The movement of air can help to clear a cool barrier from the surface as the water evaporates, allowing for other drying processes to continue being productive.

Humidity
As water evaporates, the humidity in the room rises. Moisture must get dealt with, or conditions can easily get met for secondary effects like mold growth. In an area already prone to higher humidity levels, the calculated placement of desiccant dehumidifiers can remove moisture from the air and help to expedite drying after flooding conditions.

While extraction is often one of the initial stages of recovery after a flood, our SERVPRO of Amityville / Lindenhurst must balance several factors to offer the most effective drying efforts possible. The better we can maintain this balance, the more of the affected materials and contents of your home that can get restored completely. Give us a call anytime at (631) 319-1680.

Act Fast to Mitigate Commercial Water Damage in Amityville.

A SERVPRO van parked in a parking lot. Calling us, the professionals will get you right back on track for your Amityville business.

Amityville, your company is your life, let us help you get back to business.

There are many instances when the weather poses a problem for your business. However, interior water damage is often widespread, and the cause may include a burst pipe or a broken water heating system. No matter what problem your commercial space is faced with, calling the professionals helps you to mitigate the damage to get your business back to normal sooner than later. 

SERVPRO technicians understand the importance of prompt response whenever there is commercial water damage in Amityville. Our process starts with a quick phone assessment so that the right tools and equipment get dispatched with the crew. We have a crew chief or a project manager for larger water loss jobs, that arrives with the team to do the initial assessment onsite before organizing the staff to ensure your business is back to regular operations as quickly as possible. 

The first order of business is ensuring the water is turned off to the impacted area of the building. We work quickly to make sure that no slip-and-fall or electrical hazards are posing a problem. Our technicians use high capacity water extraction tools to remove standing water, and all of the future gets a thorough wipe-down before relocation to a dry space. Any electronics or computers are disconnected before the surface is dry, then these items are taken to a dry location to receive an assessment by a computer specialist. 

If water still lingers, water extraction tools help remove any excess moisture before we bring in industrial air movers and place them strategically throughout your business. Some situations call for the creation of negative pressure areas to bring dry air through the building to expel humidity in the air. We also have high-strength dehumidifiers to help ensure all materials and spaces are thoroughly dried.

SERVPRO technicians understand how important it is for your commercial space to get back to normal function as soon as possible. We work with you to set up temporary workspaces, so operations remain underway while recovery takes place. Our team communicates each step of the process to ensure nothing hinders the progress resulting in reopening.

Do you want to learn more about commercial water damage mitigation? Our team at SERVPRO of Amityville/Lindenhurst is here to help. Just give us a call at (631) 319-1680, and we can send out a team as quickly as possible to get started.

Portable or Industrial Generators to Power Emergency Flood Damage Equipment in your Lindenhurst Home

1/4/2020 (Permalink)

Multiple homes in flood waters SERVPRO can restore your home after flood damage occurs.

SERVPRO has the equipment and expertise to restore your property after flood damage

Flash flooding can knock out the electric supply to your property or cause severe damages to the electronic circuits within. Powerful storms can make your home uninhabitable, leaving you in need of several week's worth of restoration to get back water and electricity supplies. Our local restoration service can enter your property to perform mitigation, maintenance, and security tasks that allow for third-party electricians, plumbers, and remodelers to get your home back to a livable condition. 

When flood damage occurs in your Lindenhurst property, the circuitry is likely fully-submerged in water. Usually, exposure to water of any type can require replacement of wires as well as sockets, which can rust and cause flickering power. However, the electric supply to your property is likely to be the least of your concerns when your property is flooding with outside water. SERVPRO technicians can arrive on-site to prepare your property for renovation in even the most adverse conditions. 

In the immediate aftermath of a flood, SERVPRO can send technicians with portable generators to assess and prepare your home for restoration. Portable generators have a typical run-time of between 4 and 12 hours. However, they can be instrumental in powering extraction equipment, setting up temporary lighting as well as drying equipment. They are also quick to deploy and run, which is useful in a situation where time can be a factor. 

Sometimes residents may need significant amounts of power supply to their properties. This may be true in situations where rewiring or remodeling is necessary. SERVPRO stocks industrial generators that run for up to twenty-four hours at a time and can support a full range of restorative and remodeling equipment. We can provide these generators to electricians, general constructors, and plumbers during the restoration phase to assist with your home's full recovery. 

We have extensive experience working in large loss recovery projects with trusted third parties. After flooding, contact SERVPRO of Amityville / Lindenhurst at (631) 319-1680.

Minor Fire Damage Leaves Homeowners Inconvenienced in Farmingdale

While the tragedies and aftermaths of two- and three-alarm fires are perpetually in the news, small-sized ones can leave part of your Farmingdale home inhabitable. Despite not making the news, smaller blazes can certainly impact your family in several negative ways. SERVPRO crew members understand how smaller fires produce changes in your house, and how they impact your life. Our training covers this, as well as the most effective remediation methods to help our customers.

We want to assure you that restoring your property in Farmingdale after fire damage occurs is possible, and we can make this happen for you in the most cost-effective way possible. We discuss the work necessary, both before and during the job, to keep our customers knowledgeable about the processes taking place. 

Fire damage mitigation and restoration covers many areas of your house, with several having different options. Because we want to gain your satisfaction with the final result, our project manager is always available to answer questions and explain variations of the project in more detail.

SERVPRO teams work together to address the physical fire damage to both structure and your belongings, the odors now offending your family members' noses, and also the water used to put out the flames. Our building crew helps by taking part in the removal of any requisite materials needing tear-outs and reinstallation, cleaning of soiled carpeting and other flooring, and HVAC duct cleaning. 

Other team members set up air scrubbers, desiccant machines, and work to extract the water, and in some cases, the foam, sprayed on during firefighting efforts. Even a small fire can fill a large home with smoke, depositing soot everywhere. Repainting of some walls and ceilings might need to happen if covered with oily or greasy soot. This type of smoke residue discolors paint that otherwise remained unaffected during the fire. 

With dry soot, such as that made by cellulose-fueled fires, wiping it off with a dry sponge can leave it clean, avoiding the need for repainting. Touching up might be all that we need to do to leave it “Like it never even happened.”

Making fire damage, no matter how extensive or isolated in your Copiague or Wyandanch residence, a thing of the past, SERVPRO of Amityville / Lindenhurst is committed to our communities. Call (631) 319-1680 for 24/ assistance.

How Deodorizing Tools Work After Fires in Amityville Homes

12/18/2019 (Permalink)

A SERVPRO truck parked in a parking lot. Amityville your fire damage needs SERVPRO’s tools and reliability.

SERVPRO has the time trained and tools to properly handle your Amityville fire damage.

After a fire gets extinguished in Amityville homes, the work of a professional restorer begins. Through careful inspection and scoping of the present damage in the property, our SERVPRO team can determine the most efficient and cost-effective approaches to restore and recover nearly every damaged area in the house. We even have an in-house team of licensed general contractors that can work on controlled demolition, full-scale reconstruction, and other emergency services that your damaged home needs.

Lingering odors can be one of the most challenging and stubborn fire damages in Amityville properties, especially if these effects have infiltrated porous surfaces like fabrics and drywall. Even without structural concerns, the existence of heavier saturation of smoke odors can be a struggle for our sophisticated tools to reach and neutralize. Choosing the right equipment is vital to eliminate smoke and charring odors permanently.

Ozone Generator

A portable version of our ozone chamber is one of the most versatile deodorization tools available to our SERVPRO professionals. These units create an unstable gas that contains three oxygen molecules (ozone.) This gas reacts with odor compounds by bonding with them and neutralizing it on contact. The production and presence of ozone are hazardous to living creatures, however, so the unit runs for a designated time and then has a chance to air out before our technicians return.

Hydroxyl Machine / Photocatalytic Oxidizer 

Ultraviolet rays are another effective method for cleaning and deodorizing an environment. These machines use UV rays to generate hydroxyl radicals, which can break down existing foul odors in the area to a combination of carbon dioxide and water. This unit can treat a larger affected area with the appropriate containment barriers.

Air Scrubber 

Often one of the most effective strategies for reducing the severity of odors after fires get extinguished is to filter the air in the damaged zones. Air scrubbers, and any other filtration equipment, pull dirty air through a HEPA filter in the machine to begin trapping particles, debris, and ash circulating in the room.

Fire odors can be a challenge to overcome, but our SERVPRO of Amityville / Lindenhurst team can help. We’re Faster To Any Size Disaster, and you can reach us 24/7 at (631) 319-1680.

We Have The Specialized Flood Damage Cleanup Crews Necessary In Lindenhurst

12/6/2019 (Permalink)

a ceiling caving in after flood damage struck Our storm damage technicians have the equipment and experience to restore your business to pre-damage condition.

We can Help You Reopen After Commercial Flood Damage Shuts Down Your Lindenhurst Movie Theater 

Flooding is unlike a broken pipe, no matter how much water is involved. When a business in Lindenhurst floods, SERVPRO's technicians arrive soon after to start mitigation and restoration. Theaters pose unique challenges than what we see with most other businesses because of the sloped surface of the theater rooms' floor. However, our team members are both creative and dedicated to restoring our communities' businesses to preloss condition as swiftly as we can.

Flooding requires specialized cleanup crews like those at SERVPRO, who provide Lindenhurst businesses with commercial flood damage mitigation and restoration. Our building crews also provide much-needed services wherever reconstructing parts of your building needs to occur before patrons can flock back to the latest features.

The sloped floor that allows all of your patrons to view a movie easily lets floodwater run down toward the screen's location. Our submersible units, attached to our pump truck, extract this contaminated water out of the area. Depending on the materials making up your theater's floors, we might need to roll up carpet covering walkways. Larger pieces covering your lobby floor, bathrooms, and office space can require cutting into smaller pieces for smoother disposal. The easiest flooring to restore is sealed concrete, although it can require extended drying time. 

To make drying take place as rapidly as possible, we elevate the heat. Flooring is not the only component that sustains flood damage. Upholstered seating can absorb moisture and odors, too, from the damp air. We dry these out and then sanitize them afterward, to ensure nothing affects your patrons' health or comfort. Drying rows and rows of seating in situ requires several of our powerful air movers to create adequate air movement through the area. 

However, any padded seating directly saturated floodwaters often means you need to throw those units away. The more cost-effective option for more than a few might be replacing them, while thorough cleaning of only a few might cost less, overall. We discuss such options with our customers to provide them with the best results.

One thing that goes hand-in-hand with the movies is the smell of popcorn and other treats. Odors related to flooding can ruin this, so we take the time to work with you or your designated staff to eliminate these. Fogging and other deodorizing methods can leave the entire theater smelling new and pristine.

SERVPRO of Amityville / Lindenhurst's specialists receive training in the restoration and mitigation of all types of businesses. Our expertise means your Copiague, Farmingdale, or Wyandanch theater reopens as soon as possible. Our 24-hour emergency services number is (631) 319-1680, and We're Faster To Any Size Disaster, making a recovery fast and painless.

SERVPRO Green Vehicles Parked and on the Job Amityville Property Owners Breathe a Sigh of Relief When the SERVPRO Green Fleet Swiftly Arrives for Water Loss Mitigation

Here is Why Amityville Property Owners Rely on SERVPRO for Water Loss Mitigation

We have a combined knowledge and experience base that spans over forty years in water restoration services. Our teams work in substantial loss recovery and storm damages across the country as well as here in Long Island. As such, there is no job too big or too small for SERVPRO of Amityville / Lindenhurst, and We're Faster To Any Size Disaster. If you are a resident or a business owner in Long Island in need of water removal, water damage restoration, storm damage, or water cleanup, contact us today.

Water Removal
At some point in your life as a homeowner, you may need professional water removal services in Amityville to get your house back in order with minimum expense. Our team of trained servicemen and women at SERVPRO can help to limit losses by acting fast to negate the effects of water on the structure and contents of your home. Using innovative techniques, we can remove not only excess moisture but also prevent unnecessary damages from occurring. Sometimes, we can restore a property without causing further abrasive harm to items like carpets, floorboards, and contents.

One non-invasive technique for drying floors is by using flat lay drying or large 6-mil thick poly sheets. Flatlay drying may be useful in situations where flooring is exposed to moisture for less than 72 hours. This method does not require the removal of floorboards or clearing of the affected area before use. We find that Amityville homeowners can benefit from the convenience of non-invasive drying techniques, which can also cause less damage to the surrounding area from a spill and less inconvenience to a homeowner.

Flatlay drying works on the principle of creating a smaller, contained drying area within the affected structure. SERVPRO technicians seal the affected area using waterproof tape and plastic sheeting. In effect, we create a "tent" that reduces the treatment area while also limiting the circulation of excess moisture to other areas of the structurer. We can then fit a rapid air mover with a hose inside the smaller drying zone. Doing so allows us to decrease drying times and gain greater control over psychrometrics- the balance of temperature, moisture, and air. At SERVPRO, our restoration services are focused on providing techniques that suit each individual job-site, and each Amityville homeowner.

Water Cleanup
Restoration services like ours offer water cleanup for Amityville residents that encompass both drying and damage prevention. Moisture contains microbes that, without proper cleaning, can deteriorate into serious property issues like mold growth, rot, or malodors. When water is spilled in your home, it not only introduces microbes into the affected area but also interacts with soiling that may have been unnoticeable previously. SERVPRO restoration services can dry your property thoroughly while cleaning and disinfecting the area.

Areas that may be of particular concern to Amityville homeowners could be carpets, which, after exposure to moisture, can cause the fibers to become flat or lifeless. SERVPRO has a full-range of topical treatments for carpets that can help to enhance fibers, and most can be applied to both wet and dry fabrics. Usually, when applying topical treatments, your SERVPRO technician can mix in deodorants as well as anti-microbial treatments to further protect your home.

Valuable fabrics in the property may be only suitable for dry-cleaning. SERVPRO can use solvent-based topical treatments like Upholstery and Carpet Guard Plus to dry-clean only fabrics or on natural fabrics to reduce drying times for Amityville homeowners. Our water-based topical treatments cover leather, vinyl, rubber, and plastic as well as water-safe fabrics. SERVPRO can also apply fire-retardants for synthetic or natural fibers. Whatever items you may have in your home during a water-related emergency, we have the correct treatments and cleaners to bring your Amityville home back to a preloss condition. For atypical drying, we can recommend a third-party to ensure our customers receive the best service possible.

Water Damage
You may require restoration services for water damage in your Amityville home after large quantities of water have entered, or there is a fault with your internal plumbing and appliances. These situations can deteriorate quickly without due care and attention, especially when fabrics or contents are affected.

In some cases, a longstanding water issue may only become apparent at a later stage. You may notice yellowing, odor, or discoloration of paintwork. You should always seek a responsible restoration service to address the immediate damages and prevent further harm.

SERVPRO technicians are equipped to remove large quantities of water from the home as well as providing vital cleaning and drying services. The most effective method of limiting damages is by drying a structure using extractors, air-movers, and dehumidification equipment. However, once immediate damage risks are under control, SERVPRO can provide a resolute cleaning plan to get your Amityville home back to its preloss condition, "Like it never even happened." Our service trucks are equipped with both machinery and cleaning chemicals to cover all aspects of the water restoration service. Trained in the best practices and guidelines of the IICRC--Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification, assures our customers of top-tier services.

Reversing staining or soiling can be achieved using efficient cleaning equipment alongside specialized chemical cleaning agents. SERVPRO technicians are adept at finding the right cleaning solution for each problem they encounter. Carpets can be shampooed, treated, and then mechanically cleaned using rotary floor machines. This equipment can also be applied to non-fabric flooring to ensure any residual staining left behind by water is fully restored.

Storm Damage
Storm damage in your Amityville home can strike at any time, causing excessive flooding. These scenarios can often become complicated by the contamination levels of floodwater, which is known in restoration services as a Black Water emergency. SERVPRO is a fully-licensed black water restorer and can perform the steps required to return your home to a clean, safe environment that is free from harmful human pathogens up to the disinfection level. You can contact us on our twenty four hour emergency line to arrange a service as soon as possible after flooding.

The complications arising from water contamination can result in elements of structure, carpeting, contents, and valuables becoming infected with potentially harmful substances. These substances may include raw sewage, animal carcass, herbicides as well as pesticides. Unfortunately, in many cases, items of the home need to be replaced to reduce the risk of cross-contamination. Items that are primarily affected are those made from porous materials such as drywall, fabrics, wall-paper, carpeting, and some furnishings.

Porous items are more susceptible to irreparable damage because they can absorb contaminants in moisture. SERVPRO can perform controlled demolitions of structural components like drywall during the restoration service. These items must be sealed inside biohazardous waste bags and disposed of in a proper waste facility. We can then disinfect the remaining areas of the home using industrial cleaners before replacing infected materials with new, clean materials. Our restoration service incorporates deodorization of the home to tackle any lingering malodors that remain.

If your home is a victim of water emergencies related to flooding, water damage, and water cleanup, or you require water removal service, contact SERVPRO of Amityville / Lindenhurst at (631) 319-1680 today.
