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

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 to Choose The Correct Company For Flood Damage Remediation in Your Amityville Business

Treadmills and other exercise equipment along the windows of a room in a fitness gym; dumbells on a rack on the opposite wall Don't let your Amityville gym be shut down forever due to flood damage. Call the professionals at SERVPRO today for remediation assistance.

Faster Recovery when Commercial Flood Damage Affects Your Gym in Amityville

Many health enthusiasts enjoy working out at the local gym. Returning to work at their Amityville job after spending lunch hour exercising becomes a habit for many when patrons can take a shower on-site. However, saving time never means cutting corners when it comes to exposure to microbes that might cause unwanted health effects. Your showering facilities need to meet high standards for cleanliness at all times.

Helping cover all facets that affect your Amityville gym after commercial flood damage includes cleaning shower and locker room facilities to working order. Your own staff only needs to reopen the doors to let patrons in upon our completion of the mitigation and cleaning. We take care of everything else, from cleaning up debris and disinfecting surfaces.

We work with our building services crew members, as well, in providing our customers with the services their commercial buildings require to reach preloss condition again. They work with you on the bulk laundry of towels, robes, and other items, reinstalling ruined flooring, and making necessary repairs to the electrical system. Our specialists work on cleaning vertical surfaces marred by floodwater and pulling ruined materials away from the structure's frame.

We also spend time re-situating your business' furnishings from the wastebaskets at the front desk to laundry baskets between the shower stalls and the changing room area. Anything that helps put your business back together and makes it look and feel “Like it never even happened” means your staff needs to do that much less.

Flooding can also leave behind severely distracting odors. Our Odor Control Technician (OCT) understands where the source of these smells hide and uses effective methods to eliminate them. Because locker rooms often have strong odors from different sources, many people typically respond positively to slow-release gels in these areas. Other locations, like the lobby, might respond sufficiently with one-time treatments with a fogger or hydroxyl generator.

SERVPRO of Amityville / Lindenhurst's dedication to our local communities, particularly in Copiague, Farmingdale, and Wyandanch ensure that the effects of flood damage and other disasters are short-lived and felt only temporarily. Call us at (631) 319-1680 when an emergency threatens your business with permanent closure.

Prepare for Commercial Flood Damage in Amityville

It is rare for an Amityville business to be more than a few thousand feet away from a waterway. Positioned between Great South Bay and South Oyster Bay, the coastline, rivers, and canals of the village are nearby most commercial buildings, with Narrasketuck Creek on the west, Wood’s Creek to the east, and the Amityville River in the center. As sea levels rise, the potential of flooding for restaurants, yacht clubs, and boat supply vendors increases.

Successful businesses have backup plans for all kinds of crises. We offer an opportunity for your shop, dining spot, event center, or another endeavor to partner with our team of disaster remediation experts before the waters rise and the damage occurs.

Customization of SERVPRO’s ERP is a joint effort. We appreciate that the more we know about your business’s physical layout and operations ahead of any flooding loss, the more likely our interventions result in a successful outcome. One of our experienced project managers walks through your premises, sketching your layout and noting the location of utility shut-offs and equipment. We familiarize ourselves on how you conduct your business so we can identify strengths and vulnerabilities if flood damage is imminent. Expect suggestions for ways you can minimize your exposure to severe flood damage by adapting storage, moving or raising equipment, or other personalized recommendations.

You are encouraged to add details by using our mobile app to complete your Emergency Ready Profile. Make it easier for SERVPRO to contact the vendors and contractors who sold you equipment or designed your systems by listing them and their contact information. Expand on your priorities if disaster strikes. Designate trusted employees, family members, or other individuals who can act on your behalf if you are not available at the time of a flooding disaster.
