What Are Some Best Practices During Water Cleanup for Lindenhurst Businesses?

SERVPRO Helps Improve Planning and Expedites Water Cleanup for the Benefit of Commercial Establishments

Many problems can arise after accidental water release into your business premises. However, the worst problem is a poor response. Your response can be deemed correct if you follow some established best practices. Hiring a professional helps ensure you get the desired outcomes.

Keeping calm even as you make plans to expedite water cleanup at your Lindenhurst workplace is a useful trait. Rushing things can cause unnecessary mistakes that damaged items or cause delays. Knowing that a professional team like SERVPRO is in charge of the process can help reassure you.

Other essential best practices when dealing with water intrusion include:

  • Staying motivated 
  • Making a plan before starting the restoration
  • Segmenting the loss site 

The extensive damages from water intrusion can happen almost instantaneously. Drywall panels can swell while ceiling panels sag. If such surfaces are painted, flaking and bubbling can follow while documents and books are distorted from absorbing water. The feeling of despair on visiting the site can derail you since you might feel like all is lost. However, with advanced cleaning resources such as what SERVPRO uses, it is possible to halt or even reverse some of the damages from the water.

The steps taken in the aftermath of water intrusion should:

  • Minimize moisture contact for materials and contents
  • Control microbial growth processes
  • Organize the clutter resulting from water damage

The problems that moisture causes, whether rusting, staining, or rotting, worsen the longer a material is exposed to moisture. SERVPRO technicians aim to limit such exposure by expediting extraction of the intruding water and using cleaning methods that rely on minimal moisture. For instance, using the spray and wipe approach rather than immersion can remove soils without over-wetting items. Limiting moisture also minimizes the chances of microbial growth.

SERVPRO of Amityville / Lindenhurst follows many established best practices ensuring the best outcomes during water cleanup. Call us at (631) 319-1680. We’re Faster To Any Size Disaster.

Clearing Smoke Damage and Odors from Amityville Offices

Post-Fire Effects in an Amityville Office Require Specific Restoration Services to Overcome 

Fire loss effects can spread quickly throughout open spaces in an office building. Smoke damage can appear in many forms, requiring mitigation and restoration strategies to remove and recover. Our experienced technicians can respond fast to help when you need it.

Emergency Services Protect the Property

The fire damage restoration of Amityville office buildings exists on a finite timeline. The longer restoration and mitigation take to begin, the more damage that ultimately the property endures. Emergency services are a way to get mitigative actions started even before much of the job scoping phase determines where official restoration is necessary. Some of these actions include:

  • Controlled demolition
  • Debris removal
  • Air filtration
  • Water removal

Clearing Smoke Residues and Soot from Surfaces and Furniture

Soot and smoke residues are another consideration for the way smoke can impact an office building. These soil deposits resting on the furniture, building materials, and electronics require a combination of wet and dry cleaning strategies to emulsify or dissolve stubborn soot particles to clean the hosting material.

Overcoming Smoke Malodors Left Behind 

One effect of smoke that can spread the farthest in open areas of Amityville office buildings is malodors. Burning smells created from the combustion of varying materials can create noxious and severe odors that make working impossible. We have deodorization practices to help reduce and neutralize these harsh and unwelcome malodors.

Smoke can affect local offices and commercial properties heavily after a fire. Considering the many possible effects that could exist throughout the building, trust an experienced fire restoration team to help. Our SERVPRO of Amityville / Lindenhurst professionals are ready 24/7 to help make fires “Like it never even happened.” Call us today at (631) 319-1680.

Routine Inspections and Proper Maintenance Best Limit Water Damage in Lindenhurst.

Lindenhurst businesses face year-round severe weather risks due to the South Shore’s susceptibility to heavy rains and cyclonic coastal storms.

Lindenhurst water mitigation experts at SERVPRO are exceedingly skilled at locating leaks and remediating the damage they cause. After years of experience providing such emergency water damage services, our skilled technicians have discovered the most effective ways of minimizing the potential problems caused by roof and ceiling leaks.

Some things local business owners can do to lower their risks of suffering severe, roof leak-related water damage are:

  • Having roofing done only by reputable, quality companies that are trustworthy and capable of doing the job right
  • Properly maintaining the drainage system of their business’ roof and promptly cleaning out clogged gutters before they cause any issues 
  • Routinely having roofing examined for damage and quickly repairing any found 
  • Regularly hiring a professional water damage remediation service to inspect their business for the telltale signs of water leaks
  • Vigilantly having any trees or tree limbs that could potentially fall on your business during a storm trimmed

What Is Involved In Fire Restoration For Amityville Condos?

SERVPRO vehicle When a fire damages your Amityville condo, contact the experts at SERVPRO right away for remediation services.

SERVPRO Helps Resolve Different Issues on Different Floors during Water & Fire Damage Restorations

For storied houses in Amityville, such as condominiums, the damage from a fire can vary on each floor unless the structure is completely ravaged during the blaze. In some sections, materials degenerate from exposure to flames and heat. On floors further from the seat of the fire, smoke damage is more likely.

When executing fire restoration in an Amityville condo, it is essential to address all the problems without creating additional damages, which calls for the right resources. SERVPRO restoration teams are capable of tearing down damaged materials, cleaning soiled areas, setting up protective barriers, and refinishing affected areas. We rely on state-of-the-art equipment, and experience gained handling fire losses over time.

The Most Common Restoration Tasks Involve:

  • Fire damage restoration
  • Smoke remediation
  • House fire clean up

Although issues vary in a fire-damaged condo, it might be hard to tell from casual observation since most surfaces are blackened with soils and debris strewn all over the facility. Our SERVPRO crew chiefs first inspect the facility to establish the problems at your facility since every loss is unique. 

The Typical Damages we Expect Include:

  • Torn down insulation and wall panels
  • Wet materials or contents from firefighting efforts
  • Foul odor because of smoke residues
  • Deep soiling from fire residues or firefighting chemicals

Our SERVPRO technicians help tear down all unsalvageable materials affected by flames or excess moisture absorption. We also check the char depth on framing to determine whether replacement is necessary. In case the structural integrity of the frames is still intact, we can sand off the charring and apply a sealing agent to contain any odors.

SERVPRO of Amityville / Lindenhurst is highly experienced in fire restoration and thus addresses any issues, “Like it never even happened.” Call us at (631) 319-1680 for assistance.

SERVPRO Mold Removal Companies Help Business Owners in Amityville Address Mold Quickly

If there is excess moisture in your commercial space, it can be a breeding ground for mold. Mold spores are everywhere, and it is vital that you have trained technicians, like our SERVPRO team, provide mold remediation so that it is properly cleaned and removed.

What Does Mold Testing Involve?

Should you have a mold issue, we recommend getting in touch with a certified specialist; a qualified AMRT applied microbial remediation technician from your local SERVPRO franchise. Mold removal companies in Amityville can check for mold, but with a commercial enterprise, you may need to be approved for reopening, depending on what the business is. Industrial Hygienists can assess your business and test for mold infestations and air quality. Once the IH has made a recommendation, then our techs get busy:

  • Setting up containment to prevent the spread of the mold
  • Lowering the humidity in the area
  • Turning off fans and HVAC systems to the space
  • Utilizing equipment and air purifiers to achieve goals
  • Using EPA-registered cleaning agents and disinfectants
  • Stopping mold in its tracks so you can get back to work

For professional mold remediation that deals with black mold and more, contact the mold specialist at SERVPRO of Amityville / Lindenhurst at (631) 319-1680.

Can You Save Amityville Business Carpets During Stormwater Mitigation?

4/13/2021 (Permalink)

A green road sign that says Amityville Like our towns broad history, SERVPRO of Amityville / Lindenhurst has a broad variety of ways to assist a property after water damage.

Helping Amityville business owners handle stormwater mitigation

Amityville needs no introduction – the name has become synonymous with the novel, The Amityville Horror, and the movie of the same name. The book's author, Jay Anson, maintains that it was based on the Lutz family's true story and the supernatural hauntings that plagued them in their village home.

Whether you believe the story or not, there is no doubt that the Lutz's former home is a popular tourist destination! The house is an imposing Dutch Colonial style, with five bedrooms and its own boathouse just off Long Island Sound. Many people do not realize that the home in Amityville is not the one from the famous horror movie. That home is in New Jersey – filmmakers had to go there because Amityville authorities would not allow them to film the actual house.

The house has attracted so much tourist interest that its former owners, James, and Barbara Cromarty, changed its address from 112 Ocean Avenue to 108 Ocean Avenue in the hope of discouraging the hordes of visitors who came to the village wanting to see the house. You can, of course, still view the house from the outside today, but you are unlikely to find any ghosts – several people have owned it since the Lutz's lived there, and all reported no paranormal activity.

Explore the weird and wonderful in Amityville

As you can imagine, Amityville's history has made it popular with those looking for something a little off the beaten track. If you want to try something different in and around Amityville, be sure to check out:

  • Amityville Psychic & Medium Center is the place to go if you are interested in psychic readings. Visit this quaint little store in the village to ask about your life, love, or career.
  • Amityville Apothecary is a delightfully bohemian shop where you can purchase crystals, oils, incense, books, and much more. You can also take classes in many topics such as healing or astrology.
  • Darkness Rising is a haunted house near Amityville, and many visitors have called it one of the scariest haunted houses they've been to. From zombies to ghosts to aliens, you never know what you might encounter here. It is not for the faint of heart!

Of course, Amityville is not only about hauntings and other spooky things. It is also a vibrant and friendly Long Island community that is ideal for exploring Long Island's beautiful beaches and countryside. Amityville beach is only open to residents, but there are many lovely beaches in the area. The village also has a beautiful green space named Pearsall Park, which is near the road yet offers a green, lush place to stop for a picnic or a walk.

What happens to business carpets during stormwater mitigation?

Stormwater can quickly soak a business premises and leave it in need of professional water damage cleaning. SERVPRO is a locally owned and operated franchise that is here to help Amityville businesses after a storm.

Unfortunately, it is not usually possible to save carpets after a storm. Stormwater carries the risk of contamination from microbes or even sewage or animal carcasses. SERVPRO cannot save the carpet, but we can help by:

  • Safely removing and disposing of carpets.
  • Evacuating stormwater and drying out your business.
  • Carrying out antimicrobial treatments. 
  • Deodorizing your premises.

For help getting your business back on track after a storm, call SERVPRO of Amityville / Lindenhurst at (631) 319-1680.

SERVPRO Restorers Perform Commercial Water Mitigation in Amityville

Originally known as Huntington Southwest Neck, Amityville is a village in Babylon town, Suffolk County, in the state of New York. Its early inhabitants adopted the name Amityville at a raucous village meeting in 1846. Sammual Ireland, a prominent Amityville citizen, became restless during the debate and suggested the name “Amity,” which means friendly. The villagers in attendance agreed to name the village after Amity, his schooner.

The village’s history

Amityville was rich in salt hay, which attracted a significant number of farmers from Huntington into the area. The farmers began settling in Amityville in 1653 and used the salty hay as animal fodder. On March 3, 1894, the village became Babylon Town’s second incorporated area. The first Village President was Charles Wood. 

Amityville was a popular tourist point of interest with large homes and hotels on the bay. In its infancy, the village had strong ties to the farming, fishing, and boating industries. However, as time went by, the farms and marine industries paved the way for tourism. The beaches and cool breezes from the Great South Bay offered summer visitors comfort. 

Amityville’s economy

From the beginning, the village has been the heart of transport and business. In 1867, the Southside Railroad began its operations in the area, and in 1909, the first Cross-Island trolley line came from Huntington.

In 1892, investors founded the Bank of Amityville, and in 1907, the village’s library was organized. In the late 1800s and early 1900s, the village became a popular summer resort area for tourists.

Water damage in resorts or other places of business can lead to short- or long-term loss of customers. When a water loss occurs, getting help from an experienced restoration firm is vital.

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.

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

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.

Don’t Tackle Flood Damage to Your Amityville Business Alone

Flood damage remediation in your Amityville business can be tiresome. Call the professionals at SERVPRO today for help.

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.

Prepare your business for possible commercial flood damage in Amityville by taking advantage of our Emergency Ready Plan and Profile (ERP). 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.
