Need House Fire Cleanup in Glen Cove – Call SERVPRO

Homeowners in Glen Cove who have tried cleaning up after a small fire in their homes can sometimes make the situation worse. For example, grease fires on the kitchen stove produce an oily residue that can smear when owners attempt to clean items while using the wrong cleaning agents. Odors from the residue are further embedded in porous materials making it more challenging to clean and deodorize.

Why not leave the fire cleanup to the experts at SERVPRO in Glen Cove? Our first step after every fire is to make sure that the house and the occupants are safe. We inspect the fire damage and smoke damage, the distribution of smoke throughout the home, and whether the residues are oily in nature or light and fluffy.

We also assess the surfaces that need to be treated. Are they hard and nonporous, porous, or include fabrics? Each one must be treated differently based on the surface type and the smoke residues. Treatment may include:

  • Mild Agitation using mechanical action.
  • Medium Agitation using dusting cloths and cleaning towels.
  • Heavy Agitation using abrasive materials.
  • Absorption on delicate materials using absorbent powders and cleaning agents.

How Does Secondary Water Damage Mitigation Prevent Further Damage in Glen Cove Homes?

Whenever there is a water leak in your Glen Cove home, the water and moisture can quickly spread from the source throughout your house. Primary water damage to flooring materials includes delamination of carpet backing, swelling or buckling of hardwood floors, and metal surfaces begin to rust. If the moisture and water are not removed quickly, it can lead to secondary damage.

SERVPRO understands that you can avoid a great deal of primary and secondary damage with proper water mitigation action in your Glen Cove home. We respond within 4 hours of your call, and we are available 24 hours per day, seven days a week. Even if the water does not touch some surfaces, high humidity levels can cause secondary damage. For example:

  • Ceiling tiles can moisten and crumble.
  • Wallpaper softens and falls.
  • Mold and mildew can begin growing in warm and damp locations.

Our fast response water mitigation approach aims at preventing as much secondary water damage as possible by removing all liquid water and drying the contents and flooring materials as soon as possible.

Why is water restoration so crucial in residential and commercial buildings?

Many clients are not aware why it is essential to clean up after water leaks and properly dry contents, flooring materials, and structural materials.

SERVPRO can provide water restoration services in Glen Cove, including recommendations on properly drying your home or office after a water leak from a burst pipe or overflowing sink. Insufficient attention and action often cause the damage to become worse over time.

How can the situation become a larger problem? For example:

  • Water penetrates wood products and drywall, causing swelling and permanent damage
  • Mold infestations may increase health risks for employees, customers, and occupants
  • Day to day routines are disrupted by extended water damage left unattended

Many homeowners will mop up excess water and hope that flooring materials will dry naturally. Wet or damp carpets, moisture between hardwood planks, and water that penetrate the subfloor can create a great deal of structural damage to these materials if left unattended.
