A stack of books with an open book at the top of the stack. We can help you save the pages in your Glen Head flood damage.

SERVPRO can help with even the most particular items such as books in your Glen Head flood damage.

In spite of the Internet, many people in Glen Head still love to find and read a good book. Often, finding a classic in print helps share a beloved story with a child, which often reduces reading problems in school. Both new and used bookstores carry thousands of items in their inventories, along with other items.

Bookstore owners in Glen Head fighting commercial flood damage after a storm often need professional restoration experts to obtain the best possible outcome. Water of any kind and from any source is a book's worst enemy. Swollen bindings and warped covers give a good indication of the pages' condition – wavy and curled, discolored, and in some cases, tinted from the dyes in a cloth or leather cover.

Just as without books, there is no bookstore, the structure needs restoring to preloss condition, also. Our building services department carries out many tasks needed during the restoration of a business. Boarding up windows to protect inventory and furnishings from looters and tarps over the roof can keep openings from letting in pests and precipitation. They also help with restoring books and other documents, as well as fine art. SERVPRO can handle almost any type of flood damage that happens to your business.

Our goal is to shorten the time required for mitigation, restoration, and remediation and get your business back to operational status. Lyophilization is a method that involves freezing books and other paper-containing materials to dry them with little damage. 

Because lyophilization must begin without delay, we highly recommend that bookstore owners create a READY Profile with SERVPRO. A Profile saves time by allowing us to access information about your business during a crisis.

Extracting silt and water involves both pumps and buckets. SERVPRO works in teams keeping efficiency high, so the work gets completed as quickly as possible. Elevating bare shelves and bookcases helps them dry fast because air currents can travel around them evenly. Wiping condensation off rarely needs to happen because our desiccant machines strip the air of water vapor. 

We also provide odor control measures that eliminate odors caused by microorganisms, soils, and other debris. We use hydroxyl generators to kill airborne microbes and to eliminate any odor-causing particles. We can run these generators even when the bookstore is occupied, unlike ozone generators. It also causes no changes or bleeding of colors in fabrics.

SERVPRO of Glen Cove / Jericho understands how unexpected store closings can harm your bookstore in Oyster Bay. We also serve Upper Brookville and East Norwich when flood damage and other weather events threaten your company. Call (516) 671-1919, day or night, 365 days a year, because We're Faster To Any Size Disaster and always arrive fully prepared. We can also give you more information about the READY Profile and help you complete yours if needed.

Get Efficient Commercial Flood Damage Cleanup For Your Glen Cove Department Store

Department stores have a significant stronghold in American consumerism and are the anchor stores of shopping complexes and malls. They provide consumers with a variety of services and products in a one-stop shopping format. Flash flooding can cause water to enter your department store, and it can lead to significant financial losses if consumer goods such as furniture, clothing, home appliances, housewares, toys, hardware, and cosmetics, among others get ruined.

The floodwater can also ruin the floors, walls, and other structures. If there is commercial flood damage in your Glen Cove department store, you need experienced restoration specialists to return the establishment to its previous condition safely and quickly. SERVPRO is a trusted leader in flood damage restoration. We take immediate action to minimize any negative impact on a commercial property and the health of the people who work in it. We provide efficient flood cleanup services intending to make the destruction seem “Like it never even happened.” The steps we take to restore a commercial property include:

    •    Assessing the damage
    •    Our technicians walk through the premises with the business owner to inspect the damaged areas and prepare a scope of work for approval.
    •    Writing a detailed flood remediation estimate.
    •    After getting an approved scope of work, we write an estimate for the flood damage cleanup.

Water extraction
If you approve the estimate, our experts can proceed with the water extraction process and removal of damp contents for disposal or salvaging. Our Water Damage Restoration Technicians (WRT) use portable or truck-mounted pumps to remove standing water. Floodwater can enter the basement of your department store quickly, and it could contain mud and other debris. We can remove the items in the basement that have not sustained damage, take them to the upper floors and then remove the sludge and floodwater.

Standing floodwater and flooded damp materials are a breeding ground for microorganisms like bacteria, viruses, and mold. These microorganisms can cause health problems to the people working in the department store long after the flooding incident. We use EPA-registered disinfectants to prevent microbial growth.

Drying of the flooded space
Our technicians set up a combination of air movers and dehumidifiers in the building to ensure that the entire structure dries appropriately. The machines must run continuously for several days. Our crew monitors and documents the drying conditions of a building regularly. We write readings for temperature, relative humidity, and moisture content and evaluate them to see if drying goals are being reached.

Removing odors
Floodwater can bring unpleasant odors into your department store, and they can affect the shopping experience of your customers. At SERVPRO, we use different strategies to deal with flood odors, including the use of pairing agents and odor removal equipment such as air scrubbers and hydroxyl generators.

With many years of experience in flood damage restoration, the team at SERVPRO of Glen Cove / Jericho possesses the capacity and knowledge to complete challenging projects. Contact us any time at (516) 671-1919 for immediate help.

Flooding Threats to Glen Cove School Properties

Natural flooding scenarios can present substantial risks and hazards to many commercial and residential properties throughout Glen Cove. Even with precautionary measures, large structures like schools in the area remain susceptible to penetrating flood water and its damaging effects on the property. Addressing these concerns quickly can help to reduce the amount of time that students and faculty needed to stay away, but in most cases, widespread flooding requires the facility to shut down for a short time to allow proper cleaning and restoration to occur.

With years of experience in storm recovery and water restoration, we have the experience and the training to overcome all of the obstacles to fully recovering the building.

Our team of general contractors rolls out with our disaster relief team to offer fast and effective temporary construction solutions to prevent water penetration in damaged areas like brickwork, the seal of the roof, or other areas that could become vulnerable. With board up and tarping services, we can prevent further floodwater coming inside while our professionals work to remove these effects through our mitigation approaches.

We know how important it is to get your facility back up and running quickly, so we work tirelessly to overcome the hurdles making it unsafe for education to continue. Our SERVPRO professionals have extensive training in every facet of the restoration industry, including water restoration and applied structural drying.
