How Do I Get Rid of Water from a Burst Pipe?

6/18/2020 (Permalink)

burst pipe Water damage in your home? SERVPRO can make it "Like it never even happened."

SERVPRO Has Powerful Water Removal Extractors to Fix your Glen Cove Home.

What causes a pipe to burst?

Water pipes transport gallons of water through your Glen Cove home each day. These plumbing systems can age and perform less efficiently over the lifetime of your home, leading to buildup inside the pipes. Buildup blocks water flow, creating unwanted pressure in the system, which can cause the pipe itself to burst when combined with weak joints. The water pressure building up inside the joints can force water out of them rapidly, which can quickly lead to pooling water. In a matter of hours, your home can fill with several hundred gallons of water. Our technicians work in the local area and can arrive at your property promptly to remove water and mitigate losses. 

What happens to my home when a pipe bursts?

Sometimes the water pressure overall can dip, which has consequences to the rest of your plumbing system. Equally, the water that releases into the home can absorb into materials causing significant damages. To recover your house effectively, you can enlist the help of a water removal specialist in Glen Cove. SERVPRO operates twenty-four-hours a day and has experience working with the building materials unique to homes in the community. Our focus is to remove excessive quantities of moisture quickly before putting in place an efficient drying procedure that can help to mitigate against further losses like mold growth

What should I do when a pipe bursts in my home?

- Shutoff water mains to prevent further release of water. You can do this by accessing and turning off the main stopcock

- Contact your insurer to inform them of the situation

- Arrange for a service from a professional restorer to remove water intrusion in the home

How can I document damages caused by a burst pipe?

It can be challenging to assess the extent of damage to your home immediately after a burst. High-levels of standing water and material permeance are hidden factors that can only be evaluated once initial emergency mitigation is complete. In a typical home flooding scenario, we use electric submersible pumps with sufficient lift volume and power to transport standing water away from home and into an open sewer point. Once complete, the risk of structural collapse lessens, and we can spend time performing an inspection of damages noting the material construction of your home as well as the spread of moisture. We document all signs of damage during the initial scoping stage, which is recorded in a digital inventory ready to be passed on to your insurance adjuster. 

What kind of water extraction equipment do I need to remove water from my floors?

Water extraction varies depending on the requirements of your specific restoration. Semi-permeable floors like wood, tiles, or concrete can usually benefit from light-weight extraction wands. These are commonly known as wet/dry vacuums and can pass significant amounts of water by combining heat and suction. However, if your property is carpeted, we may need to use weighted extractors. Carpet fibers are very porous, absorbing lots of moisture. This moisture can be tough to remove from the inner layers of the carpet, mainly when thicker fibers are in use. Weighted extraction equipment exerts a downward force onto the carpet either through its construction or the technician's standing weight. By applying downward pressure to the rug, we can squeeze fibers and draw moisture to the surface for extraction.

Are carpets ruined after water damage?

The length of time between the event and the drying procedure is crucial in determining whether carpets are salvageable. Clean water can deteriorate over time as it mixes with other contaminants like microbial spores or dust in your indoor environment. In as little as seventy-two hours, a clean water emergency can degrade into a grey or black water contamination issue. With their porous fibers, wet carpets are ideal for spores to form mold colonies that can spread rapidly throughout a carpet. Equally, the presence of moisture can lead to delamination of the carpet. SERVPRO technicians have extensive training in carpet restoration. We can apply to condition or buffering techniques to ensure that carpets return to a preloss condition providing that water exposure time is kept low.

How Can I Restore Wet Carpets

- Precondition and thoroughly dry the carpet using extractors and dehumidification

- Inspect the mat and perform spot cleaning to remove any residual markings or visible damages 

- Use a rotary machine to buffer the fibers of the carpet and return it to its preloss condition

Burst pipes can occur at any time, and the longer the water remains, the higher the chance is of sustaining permanent damage to flooring or contents. Contact SERVPRO of Glen Cover / Jericho at (516) 671-1919 to arrange a call with our water restoration technicians (WRT).

SERVPRO Restores the Damage as Quickly as Possible

If your Glen Cove gift shop had a water leak, it is crucial to deal with it right away to prevent further damage. You do not want your unaffected items to retain moisture or mold colonies to grow due to excess water. The quicker you dry your belongings and the interior of your shop, the quicker you can get back to business.

How Do I Protect My Merchandise?

SERVPRO Has Offsite Secure Storage for Your Merchandise

When dealing with water damage restoration at your Glen Cove business, you may need to remove your merchandise to an offsite facility for a couple of reasons. First, you want to keep the items dry and remove the possibility of them absorbing moisture from the raised humidity levels in the shop. Second, if any items sustained damage, technicians can clean and dry the items offsite. When taking items out of your shop, our specialists inventory each item so that you can keep track of your merchandise each step of the way.

What Would Happen if I Try to Dry My Store with Only Ventilation and Box Fans?

  • The drying process would be much slower without proper equipment or technique.
  • Moisture may remain, exposing your merchandise to humidity that can damage the gifts you sell.
  • Unpleasant odors may develop, making your business a less desirable gift-buying destination. 

What Type of Equipment Does SERVPRO Technicians Use to Dry My Floors and Reduce Humidity?

  • Air movers direct air across the floor to assist in evaporation of moisture. 
  • Technicians use dehumidifiers to pull moisture out of the air.
  • Air scrubbers to purify the air and remove odors.

There Was a Fire in My Kitchen. How Do I Get the Smell Out of My House?

"Contact us" Our professionals have state of the art equipment to clean up and restore your home so you can return safely after a fire.

SERVPRO Uses a Variety of Techniques and Products to Remove Odors in Your Glen Head Home

A fire in your Glen Head kitchen often means that there was a protein fire, especially if meat was the cause of the fire. Protein fires usually leave a minimal yellow residue. However, it produces strong, pungent odors. The biggest issue after a protein fire is odor removal. Fires that do not include burnt fish, meat, or poultry cause odor, but not to this extreme extent. 

Do I Clean Surfaces First or Deodorize?

After a Protein Fire SERVPRO Fire Restoration Specialists Usually Clean Surfaces First 

Each fire damage situation in Glen Head is slightly different, so our technicians assess the damage and create a plan to restore your home to the preloss condition. Cleaning surfaces right away is crucial because the longer the residue sits on a surface, the harder it is to remove. Technicians may need to clean protein residue off every surface in your home, even if there is no visible residue, protein residue seems to affect more areas than just the kitchen. 

What Deodorization Techniques Do You Use After a Protein Fire?

  • Remove the odor source- if the burnt salmon is on the stove, get rid of it quickly. 
  • Mask the odor with masking agents that cover the malodor with more pleasing scents. 
  • Combine odor particles with pairing agents that either neutralize (wet fogging) or absorb the odor (thermal fogging).
  • Use enzyme digesters to break down the organic protein molecules that do not smell like CO2 and H2O. 
  • Clean the air with air purification equipment using filters and ventilation fans.

SERVPRO technicians work quickly to remove unwanted protein smoke residue while incorporating deodorization techniques. We make it, "Like it never even happened."

SERVPRO Helps Ensure Water Cleanup Exercises in Glen Cove Address All Underlying Issues that Lead to Problems after Water Spills

It may seem absurd that you have to do extensive cleaning around your Glen Cove home when a pipe releases gallons of clean water that flows all over your house. However, a combination of several factors necessitates cleaning to restore the property to its preloss state.

What typical reasons compel people to perform water cleanup in their Glen Cove homes?

  • For the safety of the occupants.
  • To ensure a comfortable stay.
  • To protect the structure or contents. 

As the water pools around on hard floor surfaces such as tiles or concrete, it leaves them slippery, increasing the chances of slip-and-fall accidents around the house. Water intrusion also sparks microbial growth, especially if moisture management is postponed. Microbial growth can lead to respiratory issues if left to progress unhindered. 

Once water spills, evaporation starts immediately, which raises the humidity levels inside the house. At best, it is uncomfortable to stay in a house once relative humidity exceeds 60%. Bad odor can also develop in the house, especially when materials such as rugs or carpets are left wet for too long. When our SERVPRO technicians clean up your house, we can preempt the problems, guaranteeing your family a comfortable stay.

How does cleaning stop water from damaging the structure?

Water can cause materials to deteriorate in many ways. For instance, the cellulose in wood readily absorbs water leading to structural changes such as warping or swelling. Water exposure also causes many other problems in different materials, including:

  • Rotting
  • Mold development
  • Rusting
  • Discoloration and staining

The cleaning process removes standing water from the structure and manages the humidity levels in the air. If cleaning agents are utilized, their antibacterial and antimicrobial properties help limit microbial growth. Therefore, it is possible to stop or at least minimize the intensity of the problems that develop, unlike a case where nothing is done after the water spill.

Why involve someone else to do the cleaning?

The prospect of removing pools of uncontaminated water and then cleaning the house may not seem daunting. However, several reasons can compel you to consider involving a team of professional restorers like:

  • Lack of the right of cleaning tools.
  • To guarantee the safe use of cleaning products.
  • To expedite the process.

What you might consider a simple water removal process can turn into backbreaking work when using mops and buckets. Drying the wet materials is even more difficult because it works through evaporation, and opening windows and doors is not an optimal solution. Our SERVPRO technicians use wet vacs to remove the water then we set up powerful air movers and dehumidifiers to manage the drying process cutting down the effort and time it takes to complete the job.

Away from efficiency, a professional team also helps guarantee your safety during the cleanup process. The process of cleaning your home after a water spill can pose some risks, although they might not be apparent. For instance, a simple task such as mixing cleaning products can lead to injury if you mix ammonia and chlorine bleach due to the production of harmful chlorine gas. The spilled water might reach power outlets leading to electrocution if you step into the house without protective wear. Professionals are prepared to tackle these risks because of their training and experience dealing with similar loss sites.

What is involved in cleaning a house after a water intrusion?

If it is the first time dealing with a burst water pipe or other severe water spills, you might not have a true picture of what you are dealing with until you start performing the cleanup. Unfortunately, such an approach leads to delaying or missing some of the initial preventive steps that help keep the loss manageable. For most water spills, these actions are typical, so you should make plans on how to complete them before starting the cleanup.

  • Removing the water
  • Cleansing surfaces
  • Drying materials
  • Deodorization

Knowing the steps you need to take beforehand helps in planning, and in some cases, you can take the initiative to optimize the process. For instance, instead of waiting until you finish cleaning and drying your house, then you think of deodorizing if you smell a bad odor, you can incorporate deodorization in cleaning. Our SERVPRO technicians mix water-based deodorizers with the cleaning solutions to ensure the areas we clean have a sweet scent. We also maximize water extraction, thus simplifying the drying process since extraction is 1200 times faster than evaporation.

What are the vital steps you take to restore business premises?
Water removal is an essential step we take when restoring a property. We work fast to prevent expensive repairs. Some of the equipment we can use to remove water include:

    •    Electric submersible pumps
    •    Wet/dry vacuums
    •    Self-priming trash pumps
    •    High-pressure pumps

We choose the right extraction tools based on how much water is in a property and if it is mixed with solids. For instance, a self-priming trash pump is useful when removing water with solids from a property.

What is the Best Way to Get Floodwater Out of a Sunken Den?

4/22/2020 (Permalink)

SERVPRO technicians can remove the water quickly from your Glen Cove property

During a storm, there are numerous ways that water can enter a property in Glen Cove. When high winds damage a roof, the resulting leak is clean water, and as long as it gets cleaned up quickly, it poses no threat to inhabitants of the home. Groundwater is a far more severe issue. When this type of floodwater enters a home, it can have all kinds of bacteria, chemicals, and often sewage. Avoid coming into contact with it and get restoration services started as soon as possible.

What Should I Expect with Flood Damage Cleanup in My Home?

Flood damage in a Glen Cove den had numerous issues for SERVPRO technicians to address. Roughly an inch of water entered the home and quickly migrated into furnishings, flooring, and the structure. The technicians tested the water upon arrival to determine the nature of any bacteria or the presence of sewage (known as black water), so they could choose the proper cleaning agents to disinfect the worksite and make the cleanup process safer.

Part of Flood Loss Cleanup is Removal of Loss Items

The low-seated couch and loveseat in the den absorbed water from the wet carpet into the frame and stuffing and made them non-restorable as most porous items that take in black water cannot get returned to a sanitized condition for reuse. This meant they required removal as a loss with permission from the homeowner. Fortunately, a number of items had restoration potential. A solid wood coffee table got removed to another area for drying and cleaning. The accent pillows on the sofa remained dry and got moved outside the worksite with other items for cleaning and disinfection. The homeowner was pleased to find out the foosball table could get saved through washing with mild cleaners.

Frequently Seen Structural Damage After Flood Loss

Once water enters a home, the damage begins as it migrates and penetrates flooring and wicks into sheetrock. After quickly moving out the furnishings, the technicians scoped the den to determine all areas of water migration. They found it several inches into the sheetrock and wainscotting around the room. The techs measured over the water line on the walls and cut off the sheetrock several inches. This assists in drying the interior wall spaces.

Carpet wet from groundwater needs specific handling.

  • Once black water gets found within the carpet, it requires removal and disposal as a biohazard.
  • Due to the heaviness of wet carpet, the techs extract the water to make it safe to move.
  • Once the maximum amount of moisture gets extracted, they cut the carpet into strips to make it easy to handle. This action exposes the concrete substrate, which needs attention to ensure it dries completely.

What is the Fastest Way to Dry Flood Damage in a Home?

Floodwater brings elevated humidity to the loss area that needs multiple pieces of equipment to remedy. SERVPRO technicians carry in different types of devices to deal with the moisture in the den.

  • Portable pumps to pull as much water up as possible off most surfaces
  • Rovers are valuable for removing the water from the carpet before disposal
  • Squeegees work to push remaining water off the concrete
  • Air movers blow at high speed and cause a chain reaction that results in embedded moisture in the concrete to rise
  • Dehumidifiers seize this water vapor and remove it
  • Monitoring during the entire drying process to maintain timelines and achieve drying goals

Handling Concerns for Electronics Exposed to Floodwater

 After items such as the television and stereo equipment had exposure to the flood loss, the homeowner had concerns about their safety for reuse. Because it is not safe to test electronics with probable water exposure, the technicians arranged for a local industry expert to inspect the devices for the homeowner to reuse or if any repairs were necessary.

How to Removal Water Odors in a Home

Floodwater brings its own musty odor and may be made worse due to sewage or other elements in the water. Drying the property goes a long way towards lessening the foul scents in the home; however, the deodorizing cleaning agents also assist in the removal of any residual water odors. The use of antibacterial and antimicrobial cleaners as needed If needed, the technicians can use equipment such as air scrubbers and hydroxyl generators to capture any remaining airborne droplets and neutralize them. After the completion of these actions, the property is ready for the needed repairs to bring the den to its pre-water loss condition.

Flood damage needs immediate attention. Call SERVPRO of Glen Cove / Jericho at (516) 671-1919 for rapid action to restore your home and property.

Did a Leaking Water Heater Damage Your Glen Cove Home?

4/15/2020 (Permalink)

The Benefits of Professional Water Removal in Glen Cove Homes 

There are so many ways that water damage can hit a house. Some of the most common events include hot water tank failures, supply line leaks to appliances such as the fridge or washing machine, and plumbing issues. All these events have in common is they need cleanup efforts to begin as early as possible to lessen loss to the structure and contents. 

There are many perks for bringing a professional restoration service in for water removal in a Glen Cove property. One of the biggest is that it is almost impossible to do a comparable cleanup job using consumer-grade equipment and products.  

Differences in Setup

The techs scope the loss area to determine problem areas. We also place a barrier between furnishings with stained legs and wet carpet to stop the potential for any bleeding of the stain onto the damp carpet. 

Differences in Water Extraction

Homeowners that own wet/dry vacs can get ahead of the water loss in their homes. However, this machine type does not have the pulling power of the portable pumps and other water removal equipment that SERVPRO techs bring to the site. The certified techs know that the more moisture that gets pulled up lessens the needed drying time. 

Differences in Drying Equipment

When a homeowner has a wet carpet and sets up multiple fans to blow on it, the tops of the fibers may feel dry to the touch after a time. Should carpet's bottom backing and padding still retain moisture, a host of issues may develop from mold to unrepairable damage to the materials from prolonged exposure. SERVPRO techs use centrifugal air movers en masse to deliver high-velocity airflow. This airflow causes a reaction that forces embedded moisture to rise where the nearby dehumidification equipment is ready to port it away. Specialized drying devices and methods such as floating the carpet or drying mats to save expensive hardwood flooring give results that home-based efforts cannot attain.
