SERVPRO Can Help You Remove Flood Damage From Your Glen Cove Home! 

Living in an ocean-side state, such as New York State, can bring some intense storms to your front door. Furthermore, these weather events can suddenly shift and change, causing more rainfall than expected. While it is possible to be prepared for a particularly nasty storm, sometimes your home cannot avoid damage. 

If your home sustains damage during heavy rainfall, reaching out for professional Glen Cove flood damage restoration services is crucial. There are many ways a storm could cause water to get inside of your home, but for this example, let's say rushing rainwater leaked in through an open basement window. It is easy to forget that a window is a jar, and it happens more often than you might think. 

SERVPRO can travel to your home with urgency in mind. We do our best to operate despite the weather and fulfill our promise that We're Faster To Any Size Disaster. The earlier you call us, the quicker we can arrive. 

Many basements are unfinished. Imagine that your basement is also incomplete and that you are primarily using it for storage. Rainwater rushing in through an open window can: 

  • Soak stored boxes of possessions
  • Damage furniture, such as extra chairs and table extenders 
  • Damage the structure of your home, such as the wooden framing 

Once there, SERVPRO can begin by removing furniture, possessions, boxes, and other stored items. Your boxes can be transported to our facility and then remediated. Afterward, our technicians can repack them in new boxes and store them on site until the restoration is finished. 

On-site, our expert technicians can remove the standing water with advanced technology and then remove impact insulation. We can set up flood drying equipment, such as dehumidifiers and floor drying mats before we bring your belongings back to your home.

SERVPRO Techs Have Comprehensive Training in Restoring Glen Head Furniture Post-Fire Damage

One of the most daunting things for a Glen Head homeowner to see after a house fire is the sheer amount of soot covering the interior. Since there are different types of soot, often in the same area, it is best to outsource the fire damage cleanup to a professional service.

SERVPRO has years of experience handling fire damage restoration in Glen Head properties. A big mistake that homeowners attempt is trying to remove soot from their furnishings. Applying a liquid to dry smoke can ruin the surface by driving the particles into the item rather than cleaning it. Also, scrubbing thick, stuck-on wet smoke can mar a surface. 

The technicians have extensive training in the proper removal of all kinds of smoke damage. The SERVPRO technicians have a systematic process that includes:

  • Testing residues to determine the type
  • Choosing the appropriate cleaning method
  • Ensuring no odorous soot gets left behind 

Hardwood furnishings and countertops may look as though they need to be removed; however, if these articles do not have heat or water damage, they can often have the potential for restoration and reuse by the homeowner. The technicians use their skills to assist Glen Head homeowners in realizing as few replacement purchases as possible.

SERVPRO of Glen Cove / Jericho at (516) 671-1919 provides the local Glen Head community with fire damage restoration services. The trained technicians are available 24/7 to handle all types and sizes of damage from house fires.

Many Extractors and Water Removal Tools Help With Mitigation, but Some are More Versatile in Glen Cove Homes Than Others. 

With any water damage incident, there is a finite timeline to do the best for the property before irreparable damage occurs. Our fast response to emergencies can get powerful extractors and other mitigation devices where they work best to save customers time and money.

Emergency Services and Water Removal 

Water mitigation for Glen Cove homes often focuses on the use of extractors and water removal tools. Because each damage incident can vary substantially, there is often a combination of available machines and extraction units like:

  • Submersible pumps
  • Trash pumps
  • Truck extractors
  • Light wands
  • Wet vacuums

What Makes the Electric Submersible Pump Ideal for Extraction?

The electric submersible pump is one of the most heavily used extraction units for several reasons. The first of these is that it can run on a traditional power supply like portable generators typically required after substantial water damages. Its continuous and quiet operation allows it to manage thousands of gallons of standing water in areas of the house without losing prime or power.

Mitigation is easily one of the most important services that we can offer area homes after water damage. These initial actions dictate the time and money involved in the restoration process, so we carefully choose among our tools and strategies to maximize our production. You can reach our SERVPRO of Glen Cove / Jericho team anytime at (516) 671-1919.

How Are Hidden Moisture Pockets Resolved After Flooding in Glen Head Homes?

7/24/2021 (Permalink)

SERVPRO logo Flood damage in your home means you need the help of SERVPRO. We use the latest equipment and technology for all disasters. We will help!

Migrating moisture can  Cause Substantial Structural Issues for Glen Head Properties. 

After flooding, your home can be devastated. While the focus is often on the damage you can see, all the water must get addressed. We have powerful tools and strategies to overcome trapped floodwater in area homes.

Identifying the Presence of Trapped Moisture 

With several tools and devices in our inventory to identify trapped water pockets in porous construction elements, flood damage in Glen Head homes can be more easily managed. While superficial damage and surface water concerns are quickly identified, these advanced devices are necessary for tracking moisture movement.

Drying Damp Pockets in Wall Systems 

Wall systems can be a point where water can collect and become trapped. Migrating moisture seeking a balance between damp and dry areas of the property can use porous materials and open space in wall systems to achieve this equilibrium. As a result, moist pockets are formed that can be identified with moisture meters and thermal imagery cameras. We have several methods for addressing these trapped threats, including:

  • Positive/Negative Pressure Systems
  • Flood Cuts and Centrifugal Air Movers
  • Wall Demolition and Axial Air Movers/Extraction

Water can easily become trapped in wall systems and structural cavities without the notice of the homeowner. Our SERVPRO of Glen Cove / Jericho can help get these areas dried and restored to avoid damaging secondary effects like mold growth and degradation. Give us a call today at (516) 671-1919.
