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

Dealing with water incidents at your home or business can sometimes require expensive or technical equipment. 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.

Our Experts Are Prepared 24/7 To Restore Your Lindenhurst Home After A Flood

Dealing with Flood Damage in Lindenhurst

High tide water and winds create a potential for flooding in coastal towns like Lindenhurst. After the floodwater recedes, it is crucial to assess the damage and remove sludge, mud, and dangerous debris from your residence as quickly as possible. The floodwater is rarely just water. With the groundwater, often comes chemicals, sewage, bacteria, viruses, and more.

The professionals at SERVPRO can help with flood damage in Lindenhurst and neighboring areas. Our trained technicians are available to safely and effectively clean up the mess left behind from a flood. Our fast response minimizes secondary damage and home restoration costs. We're Faster To Any Size Disaster. However, there are some things you, as the homeowner, can do immediately to help salvage items from the residence.

Relocate valuables from the wall, tabletops, and floor to a dry place within the home. Remove excess water by mopping and soaking up as much as possible. Move anything that might become damaged by moisture, be extra careful around electrical cords. Turn on the air conditioning if the flood is in the summer to ensure maximum drying.

Do not leave any colored items on the floor. Colors can bleed onto surfaces. Do not use anything requiring electricity, including television and other household appliances that are situated in the affected area of the home. The power for impacted areas of the home may need to be cut off to ensure safety.

When SERVPRO professionals arrive, often the leader is a project manager, they scope the damage and create a plan. Part of the drying and restoration process often includes a flood cut. When there is contaminated black or gray water, wet insulation, or mold growth, it is necessary to remove part of the wall. It is a controlled demolition in which technicians remove lower levels of damaged sheetrock.

To ensure no lingering flood damage several inches above the visible damage (also identified with moisture meters) is cut from the wall. After the cut, a technician removes any of the soggy drywall material. The exposed area can now be inspected, cleaned, and dried before the replacement of the sheetrock. The goal is to restore the home to preloss condition by replacing the wallboards and adequately drying, disinfecting with an antimicrobial product, and deodorizing the home.

When flood damage occurs, contact SERVPRO of Amityville / Lindenhurst at (631) 319-1680 twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. We make it "Like it never even happened."

How to Find the Right Flood Damage Remediation Service For Your Amityville Home

10/13/2019 (Permalink)

flooded living room with beige couch Flooding quickly causes flood damage. Contact SERVPRO for water removal and remediation services.

Dangers of Inadequate Flood Damage Mitigation and Remediation in Amityville

Up and down the Eastern Seaboard seasonal storms, including the residual winds and rain of hurricanes, can cause significant damage. Amityville’s location on the southwest Long Island shore puts it in the path of these weather systems and the flooding they bring. If your home takes on water during one of these storms, it is critical to get the help needed. Removal of all moisture is vital to prevent the risk of progressive harm to both structural components and contents.

Water Migrates and Does Hidden Damage

When you inspect the flood damage in your Amityville home, be cautious. What you see collected in your basement or lower levels might not be the entirety of the problem. Water seeks an outlet, seeping through cracks and moving through porous materials like drywall. The cinder block construction typical in many foundations also offers flood water numerous empty cells to fill. If this hidden standing water remains unaddressed, progressive deterioration of building materials occurs.

Microbial Growth a Real Concern

The SERVPRO team knows floodwaters can contain human and animal waste, filled with potentially hazardous pathogens including bacteria and viruses. The moisture can activate mold spores found in almost all environments, including the flooded areas of your home. If contaminated water remains trapped, the chances of a microbial growth explosion are high. Although the multiplication of the organisms begins behind walls, under floors, or over ceilings, they eventually make their way into living and storage areas. A noxious smell is a signal that trouble brews unseen. The health of your family can be impaired by unchecked microbial growth. Organic structural materials also suffer breakdown as molds and mildew consume the surfaces upon which they live. 

We Find and Remove Trapped Flood Water

The Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC)-trained crews SERVPRO sends to assist employ sensitive moisture detection equipment. We scan with thermal imaging cameras to locate trapped caches of floodwater, relying on discrepancies in temperature as clues. Once we establish the migration pathways, we get to work releasing, containing, and lawfully disposing of the water. 

Disinfection a Must

SERVPRO crews have at our disposal highly effective and EPA-registered disinfectants and cleaners. These products inhibit the growth of molds and have approved kill rates for the pathogens found in floodwaters. When added to the menu of flood water removal and structural drying we offer, your flood-damaged home remediates to preloss condition.

SERVPRO of Amityville / Lindenhurst offers the skilled technicians, equipment, and products to transform your flood-damaged spaces back to “Like it never even happened.” Contact us at (631) 319-1680 round the clock for fast and efficient solutions to storm-related flooding.

SERVPRO Can Clean the HVAC Systems of Your Fire Damaged Lindenhurst Business Quickly

10/5/2019 (Permalink)

Several HVAC units HVAC units can spread smoke and soot throughout your business. Call SERVPRO to restore your business quickly.

Cleaning Up Affected HVAC Systems of Commercial Manufacturing Sites with Fire Damage in Lindenhurst 

Synthetics produce toxic black smoke when burning. This smoke and the oils and other aerosolized gases can permeate any porous materials in your Lindenhurst plant. Your carpeting, paperboard, acoustic tiles, showroom draperies, and wood and concrete structures can continually get dirty from newly deposited particles. Some come from the ceiling, but an HVAC system's ducts can harbor many of these that became trapped during the fire.

When a business in Lindenhurst calls about commercial fire damage, we know that the HVAC system can play a significant role in how permanent our efforts turn out for that specific site. Our building services crew handles the HVAC system's cleaning.

Our restoration team wants to start working on clearing away soot and cleaning up surfaces right away, but we also want a clean environment as we work. A hydroxyl generator can clean smoke and soot contaminants out of the air quickly and does not require waiting for it to take effect. We can work while it is running, unlike ozone generators. To keep your plant's interior free of new soot deposits, our HVAC team also starts working on removing anything inside the ducts.

In some factories, there are locations within the ventilation ducts that cannot come clean with the usual methods. When this occurs, we can still make the system free of contaminants. Sealing the inside of the ducts keeps contaminants from entering your facility. We use an ultra-low volume (ULV) fogger to fill the ducts with aerosolized sealant.

Starting where the air leaves the HVAC system and enters the ducts, we force the fog into the system. Intermittent bursts prevent drips and streaking. Then, beginning at one of the air intake vents, our HVAC technicians direct the sealant inward sporadically. Once done at one vent, we perform the same technique at another. Room temperature air dries the sealant and keeps any further particles from coming loose and entering the air your employees breathe, using only the blower on the lowest setting, 

SERVPRO of Amityville / Lindenhurst wants everyone to enjoy a clean working environment. We start cleaning as soon as possible, making things safe for ourselves and your employees. Fire damage causes both visible and hidden damage to factories in Wyandanch and Farmingdale, but we are prepared to handle all of it for you. Call us at our 24-hour emergency line, (631) 319-1680, any day of the year.

How SERVPRO Restorers Recover Amityville Homes and Businesses

9/25/2019 (Permalink)

SERVPRO vans in a parking lot. Let us help you get your Amityville community back in order after a devastation.

We will show you all you need to know for your Amityville location.

Establishing and maintaining your reputation in Amityville and its surrounding areas is not something that happens easily. We have worked for years to gain credibility with our customers and showcase our ability to exceed the expectations of our clients for their homes and businesses. We have earned our place among the premier cleaning and restoration companies in the region. In this pursuit for customer loyalty, our entire SERVPRO team has evolved into a restoration service provider that can offer recovery solutions in every niche of our industry. The bulk of our work still falls with water, fire, mold, and storm loss incidents. 

Water

Water loss situations are common threats that often get underestimated and misdiagnosed in their severity. Without sophisticated discovery devices like thermohygrometers and infrared imagery, many Amityville property owners have no real understanding of the spread or saturation of exposed materials and inaccessible areas of their home or business. Our SERVPRO professionals utilize these tools not only to gain a non-invasive understanding of the spread of water effects throughout a property but also to check our progress and verify successes once we believe drying has been completed.

Specific materials are most at risk from exposure to standing water and spreading moisture. Water damage in Amityville homes can often concentrate on areas like your drywall and wood flooring, allowing both of these materials to absorb substantial volumes until they swell, distort, and deteriorate. We have drying mats and other specialized tools that can help to protect these elements when possible.

Improper drying is a situation our professionals often address in Amityville homes after unprofessional and unlicensed restoration work has taken place. We can quickly identify lingering concerns and work with our powerful drying tools and antimicrobial solution to both restore the damage and work to limit the possibility of mold growth. 

Fire

The recovery of fire loss incidents cannot often happen as quickly as they occurred in your Amityville home, and that is partially due to the multiple layers of hazardous and threatening effects to contend with spanning the entire property. Our team must address symptoms related to excessive heat, combustion, smoke, and soot, all of which require specialized equipment, products, and practices. 

Because of our extensive training and certifications through the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC), including accreditations as Fire & Smoke Restoration Technicians (FSRT) and Odor Control Technicians (OCT), we can offer a knowledgeable and confident response to even significant loss incidents that affect Amityville homes. We encourage our fire recovery team to pursue multiple endorsements with the IICRC, as this can provide our customers with technicians that can single-handedly address all symptoms and effects of a recent fire, including water cleanup and structural drying.

Fire damage in Amityville homes and businesses can spread rapidly, posing a risk to the contents of your property. We have a full-service content management division that works independently from the recovery in your house to remove affected items to a safe location nearby. In our care, these removed possessions can get focused cleaning, deodorization, and safe storage in a climate-controlled environment.

Mold 

We consistently strive to be among the premier remediation choices for the entire state of New York, and that starts with addressing the often-widespread mold damage in Amityville properties throughout specific humid points in the year. With many properties constructed with subterranean levels, it can be a challenge for these areas to get adequate sunlight and ventilation required to prevent ideal conditions for mold colonization entirely. Blockwork bleeds moisture over time, especially in the areas most prone to in-ground springs and dampness. 

With tourism a big part of the revenue that the area depends on, you cannot allow your restaurant or store to succumb to excessive humidity, either. While it might be difficult at first to spot colonization in your property, suspecting its presence can be enough to warrant our inspection and testing. You can count on our SERVPRO team to offer genuine and honest assessments and only encourage remediation when mold damage threatens your Amityville structure. 

Many of the homes in the Amityville area got constructed decades ago, and to protect your investments and the original materials, we have specialized approaches for remediation like soda blasting. These machines can remove the organism and kill mold spores without damaging the material hosting the colony. 

Storm

With our positioning against Great South Bay and the whole of the Atlantic Ocean, Amityville homes and businesses remain at nearly constant risk for substantially damaging weather events in every season of the year. From heavy snowfalls to hurricanes, our SERVPRO team has become equipped to handle it with confidence and the full measure of our parental company and nearby franchises when the need arises. 

Flooding is a typical threat following structural storm damage to Amityville properties, and these conditions must be addressed immediately. With a 24-hour emergency line our customers can reach, they are always within moments of getting our professionals mobilized and in route to recover damages and threats to a property – even amid the storm. We arrive with a broad array of extraction tools that we can tailor to the specific depth and severity of standing water on the premises from wet-vacs to gas-powered trash pumps. 

We understand how devastating storms can be to the Amityville area and beyond because we live here too. When disasters strike the coastline, we pull our resources together to help our neighbors return to their homes and businesses to preloss condition in a cost-effective and time-saving way. We intend to minimize our impact on your life and get things back to normal for you as promptly as possible. 

There are multiple types of threats and emergencies that our SERVPRO of Amityville / Lindenhurst team have addressed over the years, and we continue to be a constant factor in the lives of those needing premium restoration services. Regardless of how disasters occur, or their severity, we have the personnel and the substantial inventory of recovery and mitigation tools to make it “Like it never even happened.” You can count on us, and our team is available 24/7 by calling (631) 319-1680.

If Your Home Has One of These, Lack of Maintenance Can Bring Fire Damage to Your Lindenhurst Home

Many homes have fireplaces, and even if used occasionally, the need for regular maintenance is crucial to prevent fire damage. The culprit in many fires of this type is a creosote buildup in the chimney. Creosote is a byproduct of burning wood and is sticky, difficult to remove, and ignites easily. Fortunately, this type of fire loss is preventable with the regular removal of the buildup of combustible materials in the home's chimney and ensuring the damper functions properly.

When SERVPRO technicians clean up fire damage in Lindenhurst homes where the fire originated from the fireplace, they pay special attention to the smoke damage on various surfaces in the house. As fire consumes objects, different types of residues get left behind, and each has its own unique requirements for proper cleansing for the best outcome. 

Smoke Damage Brick is Often Restorable

After a fire loss event, homeowners do not have to resign themselves to living with blackened brickwork around the fireplace. Although unsealed brick is porous, it often has restoration potential upon the application of the correct cleaning methods. While traditional liquid solutions can drive soot deeper into brickwork, professional-grade acid-based cleaners work to release and dissolve the residue for easy wiping away. 

OSHA-Based Training

Using knowledge and methods approved and taught by OSHA, SERVPRO technicians safely turn around fire loss in the home with the expert use of cleaners and techniques to eliminate soot and smoke damage from homes.  

Smoke Odors Eliminated from Carpet

When fire damage occurs in a carpeted room, as hot air expands the smoke and odors get driven into porous objects and carpet is no exception. Fortunately, unless the fibers received damage from charring, the carpet frequently has restoration potential through deep cleaning and odor control methods to return it to its preloss condition. 

SERVPRO of Amityville / Lindenhurst is available 24/7 by calling (631) 319-1680 for cleanup and restoration services from fire damage in your home. No matter if the fire loss is small or large, We're Faster to Any Size Disaster.

What Few People Know About Water Damage Remediation in Amityville

9/8/2019 (Permalink)

pipe water leak Water damage can happen very quickly and become devastating if not dealt with right away. Contact SERVPRO immediately.

Water Damage Amityville – Moving and Storing Contents

Water leaks can cause a great deal of disruption, not to mention damage to flooring, walls, and the contents of a client's home. Many events are relatively small in terms of the amount of water. The client can turn off the main water valve to the home or at least stop the leak before too much water spreads throughout the home. Even with small amounts of water, entire rooms may require water removal and cleaning as well as your contents removed.

SERVPRO crew chiefs have a great deal of experience dealing with water damage events in Amityville. The team understands that the client wants their home restored as fast as possible with minimal disruption. We aim to provide this service and meet the customer's expectations.

Where Should Your Contents be Stored

We prefer to move items after being cleaned and dried to another part of the home. Your contents could be moved to another room or even the garage while restoring your home.  Moving items within the home is the preferred approach since it minimizes the time required to complete the job. Also, there is less chance of damage while in SERVPRO's staging area.

Mats are always laid down on your floors for protection and avoid transferring moisture and soiling to unaffected areas. Furniture is placed on blocks to avoid marking the floor or transferring moisture.

Moving Heavy Items

We often move heavy items to another room. For example, if the water damage is in the kitchen, the fridge may need to be emptied to avoid spillage inside it and moved to a dry location. We use protective floor mats while moving the fridge as well as protecting the floor in the storage location. We make sure that your perishable items are placed back inside the fridge and that the fridge is always plugged in so it can continue doing its job. The same applies to freezers if affected.

SERVPRO looks after all of your needs and returns your home to its original condition, "Like it never even happened."

Call SERVPRO of Amityville / Lindenhurst at (631) 319-1680 for 24/7 serve. We serve the towns of Copiague, Farmingdale, Wyandanch, and surrounding areas. We're Faster To Any Size Disaster.
