In Hicksville, the Most Competent Services Have a Wide Range of High-Tech Gear to Efficiently Remove Water from Your Home

Homeownership can be a wonderful thing, but it also comes with its occasional difficulties.  It is, therefore, crucial to plan for these potential difficulties before they impact you. Some common issues Hicksville residents have been keeping up with routine home maintenance and protecting their property from weather-related damage. Over time, when homeowners fail to perform these essential tasks, they eventually have to deal with the problems resulting from their inattention. However, sometimes, even unavoidable accidents or unpredictable weather can lead to negative repercussions like standing water inside your home. Local water cleanup services, including SERVPRO, routinely encounter and effectively handle these unforeseen situations.

What Can Cause Standing Water in Your Hicksville Home?

Hicksville water cleanup services have dealt with standing water from a myriad of sources. These sources range from the readily apparent to the more inconspicuous. Water leaks can arise from structural issues, defective pipe networks, deteriorating containers, and malfunctioning appliances.  Some examples of water leak sources are:

    •    Ruptured water pipes, resulting from natural freeze-thaw cycles or long-term deterioration
    •    Rusted-out or otherwise deteriorated water containers
    •    Malfunctioning appliances like washing machines or dishwashers
    •    Clogged gutters or roof leaks, which allow rainwater to enter your home

While you cannot reasonably prevent all of these potential problems, you can avoid many of them with regular attention and maintenance.

Is There Any Way to Lower My Risks of a Water Leak?

There are several ways you can substantially reduce your chances of developing a water leak. Many of these suggestions involve limited effort on your part, while others require more. Some of the measures SERVPRO recommends for preventing water leaks are:

    •    Allowing your faucets to drip during periods of freezing weather
    •    Periodically examining exposed pipes for signs of deterioration and having those with issues repaired as needed
    •    Routinely monitoring the condition of containers and appliances and having deteriorated ones repaired
    •    Regularly examining your roof for leaks and repairing those found
    •    Cleaning your gutters periodically
    •    Cutting tree limbs that could potentially damage your roof during a severe storm

Often, by taking these relatively simple steps, you can prevent most potential leaks. Dripping faucets during freezing weather helps prevent water from freezing in pipes and rupturing them. Noticing container and appliance deterioration early enables you to fix or replace them before leaks occur.  Regular roof inspections and gutter cleanings often prevent leaks or allow you to discover them early enough so that they can be repaired before they do much damage. Ultimately, these suggestions should save you a lot of future trouble.

What Tools Does SERVPRO Usually Use to Clean Up Standing Water?

The water cleanup industry has advanced rapidly in recent years, and SERVPRO is no exception to this tremendous progress. Water removals in Hicksville that were more difficult twenty or more years ago have been made much easier now with our state-of-the-art water removal equipment. This gear more rapidly removes water and dries moisture-affected structural elements and contents. Our advanced tools include:

    •    Moisture sensors/meters that can identify precisely what is affected by moisture and how much it is affected
    •    Infrared cameras that can see through baseboards, walls, and ceilings to identify the source of leaks
    •    Industrial-strength truck-mounted and portable water extractors that can quickly remove inches to feet of standing water
    •    Submersible pumps that further facilitate fast water removal
    •    Large desiccant and refrigerant dehumidifiers that rapidly dry your home’s interior and air
    •    Powerful fans and air movers that circulate air, pulling dry air in as they blow moist air out of your home
    •    Advanced Injectidry systems that can be attached to air mover-dehumidifier networks to dry hard-to-access areas behind walls and ceilings

Using an arsenal of high-tech tools, SERVPRO’s technicians can often solve your standing water problems effectively, efficiently, and quickly. We do the job right the first time so that you can save time and money in the long-run.

Call a Company that Performs Fire Damage Restoration in Hicksville

Watching your property and valuable items engulfed by fire is among the most heartbreaking things a property owner can experience. After such a devastating incident, reassurance comes from having clear guidance in restoring your property from fire and smoke damage. Seek help immediately from a reliable restoration company like SERVPRO.

Why hire professional restorers?

The professionals at SERVPRO have years of experience. We are certified by the (IICRC) Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification to restore Hicksville homes with fire damage. Our response team is always available and responds fast to our customers’ emergency calls.

We use advanced equipment and tools as well as edge cutting techniques to restore homes in a brief period. With our expertise and experience, we can prevent further smoke and soot damage. Our team of technicians can repair most items and dispose of extremely damaged items.

How do you clean up the smoke residues?

As we restore smoke damaged materials, we seek to restore them to their preloss condition. We apply some basic principles of cleaning to accomplish the task. They include:

    •    Carefully inspecting the affected areas in locating smoke residues.
    •    Identifying the type of residues present.
    •    Identifying the type of surface that is affected.
    •    Capturing and removing residues
    •    Disposing of the debris and cleaning waste

How do professionals deodorize the affected property?

Whether small or significant fire damage, the odor can be present in your property. Depending on the intensity of the damage, the odor can persist even after a thorough cleaning. We can use a ventilation box fan to deodorize your property. The equipment generates a high velocity of airflow, which replaces the odor with fresh air from outside. The machine also helps in speeding up the drying process since the dry clean air from outside increases evaporation even in hard to reach areas.

Fire damage is devastating for homes, and you need technicians who can respond fast to it. SERVPRO of Hicksville / Plainview can help you restore your home quickly. Call us 24/7 at (516) 733-1800.

How Long Will It Take to Clean the Floodwater in My Home?

4/28/2020 (Permalink)

Inside of flooded home SERVPRO knows how hazardous flood damage can be to you and your Hicksville home.

SERVPRO Works Fast in Your Hicksville Home to Get the Flood Damage Taken Care Of

Flooding, no matter the extent, is the type of situation that Hicksville homeowners never want to experience, but it is often unavoidable, depending on the cause. Many floods bring standing water into your basement that could lead to immense damage if not addressed promptly. Calling in the help of IICRC-certified professionals ensures your home gets the prompt water restoration necessary to get it back to the pre-loss condition.

How Do You Begin Flood Damage Restoration?

When you call SERVPRO for help with flood damage in Hicksville, we arrive at your home in as little as four hours or less. We start right away on the assessment of the loss, always preparing for it to be worse than described. Any steady moisture penetrating the materials in your basement can become a catalyst for mold development as well as structural damage. This is why we have specialized plans in place that allow us to execute water restoration efforts quickly and efficiently.

How Do You Begin Water Removal?

Taking away any of the water that has pooled over the concrete flooring in your basement calls for careful selection of the best extraction devices. Our Green Fleet comes fully equipped with tools such as:

  •   Truck-mounted extractors that allow us to remove hundreds to thousands of gallons of water from the flood loss zone
  •   Submersible pumps that work best for removing standing water that is higher than two-inches deep
  •   Wet vacuums with wands that allow our team to address any remaining surface water

What Happens During the Drying Process?

We utilize a specialized formula for drying after a flood within your home. Our team formulates the best course of action that tells us exactly what and how many fans and air movers must be placed within the loss zone. Evaporative processes such as these usually include a combination of several types of drying machines:

  •   Air movers are critical throughout the drying process for any water loss
  •   Dehumidifiers are essential to help with basement drying, which are spaces in the home prone to elevated humidity levels
  •   Industrial-strength fans also help to keep the air circulating

Regardless of the number or type of drying tools used, our skilled technicians know how and when to move them around to get the best results.

Will I Need Any Repairs After the Flood?

With any ground infiltration during a flood loss situation, there can be immense damage to the blockwork that makes up the foundation of your home. This sometimes requires patches using hydraulic cement or full replacement of concrete masonry units (CMU). With strategic repair to areas of the walls that are most vulnerable, it is possible to help dry up the damp basement over the long term.

What If I Have Damage to Exterior Walls?

There are some cases after floodwaters recede that the high humidity levels within a basement can start to damage the walls. Even with the use of water extractors, dehumidifiers, and air movers, our technicians may need to move forward with further restoration efforts. 

  •   Flood cuts just above the waterline helps to expose water pockets within the walls while removing all damaged drywall. 
  •   Cinder Block construction homes could also hold water inside the walls. We use detection equipment to determine if there is hidden moisture that must be removed.

All of your exterior walls are checked using specialized moisture sensor technology. If high moisture levels are present, we drill holes along the bottom of the walls to bring out water from the cinderblock. Holes may also be necessary at the top of the wall to force air inside to remove moisture and expedite drying.

It may also be necessary to inspect the exterior of your home to determine if there is enough drainage going away from your building. What this does is help you to avoid high moisture conditions in the future so that water does not migrate back into the cinder block walls. Of course, our IICRC-certified technicians take note of all of these factors to share with you and your insurance company. 

Will There Be Lingering Odors?

Something many homeowners worry about is lingering foul odors after a water loss event. Our technicians understand that odors and mold are essential to address as part of the cleaning and restoration process. We take all the necessary precautions so that no issues are left unaddressed. Using sophisticated equipment, we trace all of the patterns of water intrusion, leaving no cavities unturned. Deodorization and sanitization using EPA-registered cleaning agents also help us to ensure that your basement is free of harmful microbial and bacterial growth.

Some of the tools that we use to look for hidden moisture include:

  •   Moisture sensors to help detect moisture that may be left behind in any soft materials, including carpets and any furniture located in your basement.
  •   Moisture meters that feature probes allowing us to check moisture content within wall cavities and other structural materials.
  •   Thermo-hygrometers that help to determine the relative humidity and temperature throughout your basement.

You need flood damage help fast, and you can count on our team at SERVPRO of Hicksville/Plainview to be available 24/7 for emergency service. Call us today at (516) 773-1800, and a team will be dispatched to make it just “Like it never even happened.”

Addressing Time Issues when Handling Fire Damage Incidents in Hicksville

Fire damage incidents present diverse challenges. However, the issue of time can be complex to address. For instance, there is a need to establish how long the repair of resulting damages is likely to take. It is not very easy to determine the restoration time by merely checking the loss site. Assistance from a professional restorer like SERVPRO helps with estimates and other time-related issues.

Determining the Period of Restoration
Many factors affect the time it takes to restore fire damage in affected Hicksville properties. The total surface area affected by the fire matters because restoration requires removal, cleanup, and replacement of materials, among other actions. The kind of damage left matters. Even cases, where smoke residue deposits are the main issue, can take longer to resolve if they involve wet smoke or other hard-to-clean residues. Our SERVPRO crews include qualified FSRT, Fire and Smoke Restoration technicians who rely on their training or past experiences to come up with estimates of how long the process might take.

Addressing Time-based Secondary
The damage from a fire doesn't stop when the fire is contained. Some secondary damages develop if no action is taken or the actions taken are not adequate. From experience, our SERVPRO technicians understand which issues can lead to secondary damages. For instance, the water released into the property when fighting the fire can lead to water damage. Soot can also stain or corrode surfaces. We can prevent adverse outcomes by prioritizing water extraction and protection of surfaces from the effects of soot. Simple actions such as setting up a dehumidifier in the property immediately after arrival and pre-cleaning surfaces help.

Limiting Exposure for Health Reasons
Fires leave some particulate matter and aerosols suspended in the air. Breathing in such air over extended periods can lead to irritation or respiratory issues. Our crews help limit exposure in different ways, including ventilating the property with axial air movers to push out the particulate-filled air or using protective gear when venturing into the property, thus limiting exposure.

Restoration of fire damage involves several time-related aspects. Call SERVPRO of Hicksville / Plainview at (516) 733-1800 to help manage the process. We’re Faster to Any Size Disaster.

How Can I Get Fast Help with Water Damage to My Hicksville Business?

4/7/2020 (Permalink)

water damaged property “Like it never even happened.”

SERVPRO proudly serves the local Hicksville community with a full scope of water-related restoration services

There are numerous ways that a business property can wind up with water damage. Pipes break due to cold snaps and inadequate insulation, hot water tank or HVAC issues, supply line failures, and sometimes vandalism. One thing all of these situations have in common is the mitigation process needs to start as soon as possible to avoid issues such as:

    •    Dangerous slip and fall accidents from wet floors
    •    Musty odors
    •    Loss to essential documents or equipment

Is Mopping Enough for Cleaning up Water on the Floor of My Business?
The short answer is, probably not. You may have a regular janitorial crew, but the most powerful piece of equipment they most likely have on hand is a wet/dry vac, and that is not enough for commercial water cleanup in most Hicksville businesses. SERVPRO technicians bring professional-grade water extraction units on-site with the power to pull up deeply embedded moisture. Additionally, because of the way water migrates throughout a property, the use of moisture detection equipment is crucial to ensuring a complete job gets done.

Waiting to Start Commercial Water Damage Mitigation Can Cost You, Literally
The longer the water remains behind walls and under flooring, the more loss that occurs to the structure.

    •    Sheetrock, in particular, wicks water rapidly and begins to buckle and warp. At that point, it requires cutting away, which means time for repairs before reopening.
    •    Tile and glue-down commercial carpeting can lose their adhesion and come loose, creating a safety issue and the need for replacement.
    •    Boxes and items stored on a wet floor can absorb the moisture and deteriorate, causing loss of stock and storage items.

SERVPRO of Hicksville / Plainview at (516) 733-1800 has decades of experience assisting local properties with commercial water cleanup. The certified techs are ready to help you, 24/7, call us today.

We Have The Proper Techniques To Restore Your Hicksville Property After A Flood

Ensuring Structures are Safe after Flood Damage Incidents in Hicksville

Moving water is one of the most powerful forces, which can cause severe physical damages to property. Apart from causing damages through force, floods cause massive water intrusion leaving many items submerged in water, damaging them through wetness and contamination. When your Hicksville property floods, there is a need to confirm that it is safe before reentering.

Checking the foundation

Foundation problems can be one of the severe outcomes of flood damage incidents in Hicksville. However, in many cases, the signs that there is a problem with the foundation may not be obvious. The problems may also take years to materialize, and when they do, it might be too late to take remedial action. Depending on the intensity of a flooding incident, our SERVPRO technicians can help determine whether foundation problems are likely. Extreme flooding that leaves properties submerged for days is likely to result in foundation weakness. We also check for subtle signs such as bulging or dislodged sections, buckling walls, or new cracks near windows or doors.

Removing all traces of contamination

A flood damage incident is classified as a black water loss involving high levels of contamination ranging from chemicals to biological agents. Our SERVPRO technicians help deal with contamination in different ways, including removing all porous materials like carpet, pad, drywall, and insulation, which cannot be cleaned to sanitary levels. We also clean all hard surfaces with disinfectants and professional cleaning agents. Once we finish cleaning, we use specialized equipment such as luminometers to confirm the removal of all traces of contamination

Structural Integrity

Apart from the force of water pushing against the structure, wetness can affect the structural integrity of a building. Wood swells when it absorbs, and in some cases, alterations to physical form such as warping can occur. Wood can also rot from extended moisture exposure. All these aspects affect the structural integrity of a building. Our SERVPRO technicians use specialized equipment to monitor moisture levels and also dry any excess moisture. We can use borescopes or thermal cameras to check for wetness in hidden areas. We also have penetrative and non-penetrative moisture meters.

It is crucial to check the safety of property after flooding. Call SERVPRO of Hicksville / Plainview at (516) 733-1800 to help. We’re Faster To Any Size Disaster.
