Hands holding home You can trust that your home is in good hands with our experienced team of experts at SERVPRO. Give us a call today.

We Have Stood in Your Shoes In Need of Emergency Help -- This Is  Why SERVPRO Water Damage Restoration in Bellmore Is More Than a Job to Our Management and Technicians.

We understand how hard it is to hand over the reins of responsibility when a disaster affects your Bellmore home. The owners, managers, and technicians making up our team commit to our community, living and working in the same place as our customers. We strive to develop a robust team of highly qualified restoration experts who bring to every project premier disaster mitigation and remediation skills and empathy and compassion for the stress homeowners suffer. The full-spectrum of services and commitment to your comfort and concerns are why we are a local restoration leader.

What Kinds of Skills and Training Do Reputable Water Damage Restorers Possess?

Water damage restoration professionals in Bellmore must follow the industry’s best practices for optimum results. They have to be ready to respond to urgent emergency needs as well as having the knowledge and background to complete the followup tasks needed. We believe the rigorous coursework offered by the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) meets both requirements. Only restoration firms and their employees who are certified by the IICRC should be on your shortlist when selecting a company to return your home to preloss condition. Our crews can hold certificates in the following IICRC specialties, among others:

  • Water Damage Restoration Technician
  • Applied Structural Drying Technician
  • Odor Control Technician
  • Applied Microbial Remediation Technician
  • Building Moisture Thermography

What Can I Expect When the Water Damage Restoration Crew Arrives?

We know we are in your home at a particularly difficult time, and that you and your family are likely under considerable stress because of the water loss and the chaos it caused. These not inconsiderable circumstances are why SERVPRO stresses clear communication and respectful delivery of services. You often hear that "knowledge is power," and we want to share the power with our customers, residential or commercial. Because of this dynamic, we spend uninterrupted time with you, listening intently to your story, worries, and requests. The more we know about the crisis that caused the water damage and any details about your home or its construction, the more appropriately we can respond. After the initial conversation, our project manager conducts a safety assessment. We must ensure the health and well being of occupants and our workers before assigning emergency tasks to our awaiting crew members:

  • Live electricity shut off
  • Signage and barriers set up to keep non-affected areas safe
  • Securing of structural damage 
  • Hidden moisture detection and measurement
  • Careful release of trapped water above ceilings and between walls
  • The positioning of submersible pumps for water deeper than two inches
  • Truck-mounted extraction of remaining visible water

Note: Pumps and truck-mounted extractors use gas to operate or work off on-board power generators, avoiding delays in the urgently needed tasks if electricity is unavailable.

Are You Finished with the Job When the Visible Water Is Gone?

We are aggressive in our extraction of the water invading spaces inside your home because research shows that liquid water removal is far more efficient than drying strategies alone. If needed, we employ tactics to access and remove hidden water as well. When we are sure all fluids are contained and disposed of, we move on to the next phase. 

Can You Explain Structural Drying? 

Many of the contents and the building materials in your home absorbed water that we could not remove by extraction. Structural drying is a vital second phase of water damage restoration, why we discuss how we plan to accomplish it, and what we need from you as the homeowner to achieve optimal results. Drying requires the following to be most effective:

  • Moisture detection and measurement completed during the extraction phase provides a baseline for dying goals, and:
    • Testing of an unaffected space in your home provides a valid comparison point
    • Testing of materials repeats periodically throughout the drying to avoid under or overreach
  • We manipulate and balance air movement, temperature, and humidity to reach drying goals, carefully positioning:
  • We count on you and your family to allow the equipment to work undisturbed until the drying goals are met

SERVPRO of Bellmore / Wantagh is ready to earn your trust by providing prompt, professional, and practical assistance when you need water damage restoration. Call us at (516) 809-9600 as soon as you suspect a significant water loss.

Is Junk Mail in Wantagh a Fire Damage Hazard?

7/27/2020 (Permalink)

stove fire that burned the wall behind the oven Fires happen often and can negatively affect the people living in the home they occur in. Call SERVPRO today to get professional remediation.

Wantagh Homeowners Risk Fire Damage With Too Much Junk Mail

SERVPRO wants all Wantagh homeowners to be as fire-conscious as possible. It is far better to protect your home and remove potential hazards than deal with the aftermath of a blaze-ravaged house.

Wantagh residents looking to cut their fire damage risks in their home can start with a simple action: Cutting down the amount of junk mail in their home.

Is junk mail a fire hazard?

Most training on home fire hazards focuses on apparent risks such as cooking, open fires, or heaters with exposed elements. However, anything that is flammable is a potential fire risk, as flammable materials give the fire plenty to burn and help it spread further.

A handful of letters on your dresser is probably not going to cause you an issue. However, if you have circulars and newspapers and advertisements and junk letters piled in corners, it might be time to tidy up a bit.

The less clutter in your home, the less chance it has to cause a fire damage hazard.

How can I make junk mail less risky?

SERVPRO suggests taking some simple steps to reduce the fire risk from excess junk mail:

  • Unsubscribe from mailing lists that you no longer want to be a part of
  • Put a “no junk mail” sign on your mailbox
  • Dispose of unwanted junk mail as soon as it arrives – preferably by recycling
  • Divide piles of papers into smaller piles, so there is less material available to burn

How can SERVPRO help me if something does go wrong?

In the unfortunate event of a home fire, call us. We’re Faster To Any Size Disaster, and we train our cleanup crews to cleanse and restore your home as quickly as possible. Our crews will:

  • Assess the fire damage in your home
  • Clean away unhealthy and unsightly soot residues using a range of scrubbing, submersion, chemicals and deep cleaning
  • Use air scrubbers and air movers to deodorize your house and leave it smelling fresh again
  • Repair structural damage to walls and ceilings, so your home is safe

7/17/2020 (Permalink)

water in basement If you don’t act quickly, water damage in your home can escalate. Contact our experienced SERVPRO team right away.

SERVPRO Uses a Variety of Water Removal Equipment

Standing water in your Wantagh basement can cause damaged floors, walls, electrical and mechanical components, and musty smells. It is paramount to suck out the water, access underlying problems, and begin the drying out process in your basement. SERVPRO provides professional and friendly residential water removal services.

How Do I Shut the Water Off From a Broken Pipe?

Find the Water Mains

The first step for a broken water line in your home is to shut the water mains off. Water mains are typically located on the concrete wall in your basement nearby boilers, hot water tanks, and other components or on the exterior side of a structure close to the ground. 

Use the following steps below to shut the water supply off from a broken pipe safely:

For starters, do not step into standing water where electrical components are present without wearing protective equipment such as gum rubber boots.

Next, shut the main breaker off from your electrical panel. Which will prevent the risk of being electrocuted while making your way to the water supply valve.

Lastly, find the water mains and shut it off. Most water mains typically have a large wheel-shaped valve, turning it clockwise until it stops will shut the main water supply off coming into your home.

What’s the Best Method for Water Removal?

Depending on the water depth, a variety of water extraction tools can be used. For example, if you have water in just certain areas, you can use a wet/dry vac. For standing water 2-inches or more, a submersible pump can get the job done. However, if your home is severely flooded, a disaster mitigation specialist such as SERVPRO is generally recommended.

Anytime you deal standing water in your home, it can create havoc and disrupt your way of life. For fast and reliable water removal services, contact SERVPRO of Bellmore/Wantagh at (516) 809-9600 today and get your home restored, “Like it never even happened.”

How Can I Remove Leaking Appliances and Water from My Launderette?

7/2/2020 (Permalink)

row of blue clothes dryers--commercial SERVPRO gets Wantagh Laundromats and Commercial Structures Dryer than These Devices

SERVPRO is a Commercial Water Removal Service for the Wantagh Area. We Can Mitigate Water Losses of Faulty Appliances and Get your Business Back to its Best.

How can I prevent appliances from leaking?

Faulty appliances can lead to massive amounts of water affecting your Wantagh business. These issues can deteriorate rapidly without quick intervention. Water-based appliances connect to mains plumbing. Buildups of grime or dirt in either the plumbing system or the washing machine can cause pressure, which eventually exceeds the pipe's capacity or duct. When pressure spots occur, your business can quickly become flooded in more than two inches of standing water leading to temporary closure and adverse effects on your daily takings. SERVPRO is available to perform fast and effective water mitigation in your business to re-open sooner rather than later.

What can I do to prevent water damage from a leaking appliance?

Regular maintenance is crucial to avoiding commercial water removal emergencies in your Wantagh business. Maintaining internal plumbing and the health of appliances using water can prevent leaks from getting out of control. When a leak occurs, shutting off water or disconnecting the machine can be valuable for mitigating losses. If it is too late to reduce losses, you should contact a professional water restoration technician (WRT) to prevent further damage. If flooding is limited to a specific area of your business, attempting to stem the flow of migration of water using water blocks or avoiding unnecessary foot traffic can be beneficial. Our technicians can bring sandbags to your premises to prevent water migration and block appliances to keep them above the standing water level until pumping occurs.

How do I assess the extent of water cleanup needed?

  • Start from the source of the damage, visually noting down wet areas of the property
  • Work your way outward repeating the same process counting rooms and areas of damage
  • Contact an emergency water technician to explain the level of losses

How do I get rid of standing water in my business?

SERVPRO technicians use a variety of pumping equipment to reduce standing water levels before they cause lasting damage. Most of these pumps can function when submerged beneath standing water. These pumps use a central engine to provide lift and suction via a water duct. Standard electric submersible pumps can transport water up to twenty-five feet outside of a property. High-pressure pumps can move water uphill, whereas self-priming trash pumps can transport any solid waste that may be present in the water. Some equipment can be more efficient than others, depending on the specific water loss situation. Our technicians hold qualifications from the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning, and Restoration Certifications (IICRC) body, which allows us to assess a situation accurately and perform the required method to achieve quick results.

Is water intrusion in business premises a health and safety hazard?

When large amounts of water intrude into a property, there can be numerous slip and trip, electrical, or bacterial health risks, even when the water supply is from a clean source. SERVPRO technicians perform a scoping procedure before restoration to ensure that any hazards or threats a neutralized. This procedure can be ideal for business owners who may require specialized repairers for appliances or electrical equipment. Our technicians can create a safe, dry, and sanitary environment for any third-party repairers to work. If you need assistance to find a specialist, our crew chiefs have a roster of trusted third-parties that can be included within your claim.

What is the method of water removal from start to finish?

  • Isolate the affected area and inspect for water migration as well as potential hazards
  • Begin emergency mitigation by pumping or extracting water from the business premises
  • Establish a solid drying plan using air movers or dehumidifiers to remove residual moisture
  • Perform final steps of deodorization and air-filtration to return the area to its preloss condition

Is commercial business restoration worth it?

When something goes wrong on your business premises, it can add a massive amount of stress and take your mind away from crucial business decisions. You may also experience unnecessary losses by using non-professional restoration methods. These losses may include things like mold damage or unpleasant odors and bacteria in certain areas. SERVPRO aims to remove the inconvenience of water damage by communicating closely with you and efficiently performing the city's effective cleanup. We can pass our paperwork directly onto your business insurer to reduce the impact insurance claims can have on your time and business. We also have extensive experience working with companies like yours in the Wantagh area.

How Difficult Is It to Remove Flood Water from My Wantagh Home?

6/10/2020 (Permalink)

A basement floor with standing water. When a storm catches your Wantagh home by surprise, call SERVPRO.

For Professional, Thorough Water Removal in Your Wantagh Home, Call SERVPRO

Flooding can affect every home in our community. A clear sky today can turn into a major storm by tomorrow, sending water through Wantagh entire neighborhoods, affecting everything from basements to attics. 

What Kind of Damage Can I Expect from the Flood?

Flood damage to Wantagh homes can include cracked and split floorboards, ruined carpets, crumbling drywall, and even mold when the floodwater is not removed quickly and structural property not cleaned professionally. SERVPRO technicians train extensively with the latest equipment to restore these, and other, items to their pre-flood condition. 

What are the First Steps Technicians Take in My Home?

Since this is floodwater, it contains soil and other contaminants. Technicians spray the water and all affected surfaces in your home with an antibacterial agent to reduce the health risk to everyone who has to step inside. After that, team members take the following steps:

  • Inspect every room and space that took on the water; this includes the attic if there was damage to the roof. If the insulation was soaked by the water, we remove and replace it after cleaning the floor and drying the crawlspace completely.
  • Bring in commercial-grade pumps and extractors to draw the floodwater off the floors, out of carpets, and from between floorboards. Since we cannot guarantee a clean carpet after a flood, technicians immediately remove them for disposal. 

With the Floodwater removed, what is next?

SERVPRO technicians bring in fans to begin forcing the damp air out of the home. Once set up, they use air movers and dehumidifiers to draw moisture out of wood floors and drywall. This preserves the structural property and reduces the amount that team members have to replace. 

If a recent storm has sent any water into your home, call SERVPRO of Bellmore / Wantagh at (516) 809-9600 today. We are here to help you restore your home to its pre-flood condition.

How Much Damage Can a Clogged Gutter Do to a Bellmore Home?

6/4/2020 (Permalink)

flooding in home If you ever do need help with a water cleanup, call SERVPRO of Bellmore / Wantagh at (516) 809-9600 for help.

A Simple Clogged Gutter Could Cause Substantial Damage to Your Home and Necessitate the Assistance of a Good Water Cleanup Service

Many times, in life, seemingly insignificant things can eventually cause major problems. This is the case with blocked gutters in Bellmore. When they are clean and doing what they should, we never think about the important function they serve. Normally, when they are in good working order, gutters conveniently convey rainwater off your roof and away from your house. When tree leaves and debris clog them, water remains on your roof and in your gutters. Eventually, this liquid causes roof leaks and seeps down into your attic and behind your walls. This unnoticed situation could cause thousands of dollars in damage over time, without you even realizing it.

What Can I Do?

There are a few things you can do regarding gutter-related water cleanup in Bellmore. First, you should periodically check your roof for leaks and its drainage system for blockage. This is especially necessary after storms and during the fall season when trees shed their leaves. Many homeowners, busy with work and family life, simply forget to clean their roof’s drainage system, and they fail to detect problems early. A second thing you can do, if you suspect there is a water leak, and you have damage associated with it, is to call a good water cleanup and remediation service like SERVPRO for an inspection. We have extensive experience in and state-of-the-art tools for detecting and dealing with just about every water-related issue:

• Our firm’s workers are trained to follow the standards set by the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC)
• Technicians are individually certified in, among other things, applied structural drying and water damage restoration
• We use only the most advanced moisture detection equipment, like thermohygrometers and water sensors/meters, to find moisture in carpets, baseboards, walls, and home furnishings

If you discover standing water or obvious water damage in your home or we find it during our inspection, you can have us clean it up for you.  SERVPRO’s highly-trained Bellmore technicians are ready to help you 24/7 and can often be on-site within four hours of your call. They have an arsenal of high-tech equipment to perform whatever cleanup is necessary. Their gear includes:

• Wet vacs, submersible pumps, and portable and truck-mounted extractors
• Refrigerant and desiccant dehumidifiers
• Injectidry systems
• Industrial-strength fans and air movers
• Thermal and ultra-low volume foggers

Using their experience and tools, SERVPRO’s technicians can clean and restore your home to pre-damage condition quickly and cost-effectively.

What are the Signs of a Leaky Roof and the Water Damage Associated with It?

Detecting the early signs of a roof leak and related water damage can be difficult, especially if the leak is minor. Of course, it is always much easier to spot the effects of a major or long-term issue. With all that said, there are some telltale signs of a leaky roof. These signs are:

• Musty odors
• Wood rot or discoloration in attic rafters
• Moldy attic insulation
• Water stains on walls or ceilings
• Wall or ceiling discoloration
• Floor and ceiling buckling
• Wall warping
• Moldy growths on baseboards or walls
• Deteriorating plaster or drywall
• Bubbling wallpaper or paint

Whenever you notice any of these issues, it is best to take action. Call for a home inspection in Bellmore as soon as you can to locate the precise source of your water problem before it develops into something even worse.

How Does SERVPRO Work to Resolve Your Dilemma?

After you notify us of your issue, we are at your Bellmore home within a few hours. After SERVPRO’s experts evaluate your property for damage, they plan a course of action and set a drying goal. Once the leak(s) are found, and your roof is repaired, workers use moisture meters and sensors to determine which structural elements and furnishings have been affected by moisture. We then dry attic areas, fiberglass insulation, and other impacted parts of your home’s interior with dehumidifiers, air movers, and fans. Any standing water is usually vacuumed up with a wet vac. Liquid and wet spots behind ceilings and walls are dried with Injectidry systems. After everything is dried to the drying goal, our technicians inject disinfectants, fungicides, and deodorants into affected places.

As a Bellmore homeowner, there are certain maintenance needs you should be aware of. The lush green, tree-lined streets of our suburban hamlet produce loads of fallen leaves during the fall season. Coupled with debris, carried by the strong winds of our frequent coastal storms, these leaves can quickly clog your gutters. So, you should routinely make sure your gutters are not blocked.  If you ever do need help with a water cleanup, call SERVPRO of Bellmore / Wantagh at (516) 809-9600 for help.

The Water Heater Ruptured in My Bellmore Basement--Who Can Help?

6/3/2020 (Permalink)

Water heater SERVPRO professionals are trained to handle all types of water damage.

Trust the SERVPRO Team to Take Care of All Aspects of a Bellmore Appliance-Related Water Damage Crisis

When you imagine the worst kind of water loss that could happen to your Bellmore home, you probably think of the impact the tail-end of a hurricane roaring across Long Island or a backed-up sewer line can inflict on your dwelling. Although no one wants to have those hands dealt, the situation in which you find yourself when an appliance like a water heater ruptures can be incredibly devastating as well.

How Much Water Can Leak from a Broken Water Heater? 

When preparing for disruption after water damage in your Bellmore home because your water heater cracks, start your calculations with the capacity of the heater. Twenty to 50 or even 75 gallons of water can pour out of typically-sized household water heaters. Laundry and showers for the average family dictate the size you choose for a holding-tank system, and you are looking at that amount spreading across the affected space at a bare minimum.

Is the Water Damage Limited to the Capacity of the Tank?

Even though 50 or more gallons of water are daunting, the usual operation of water heaters increases the amount of water flowing into your basement or utility room. As water leaves the tank, a valve stays open to allow cold supply line water to fill the tank. This balance assures you adequate hot water for your needs. Because a ruptured tank continuously empties, the supply line also continuously attempts to refill the tank. A leak or rupture of the heater that occurs when you are sleeping or out of the house for work, school, or another reason can cause hundreds to thousands of gallons of water to invade your home without your knowledge.

Should I Turn Off the Water Supply to the Ruptured Hot Water Tank? 

If you know where the dedicated valve is located, shutting off cold water from entering the tank is crucial. When you are not sure of the location of that valve, shutting off the water at the main connection into your home is an option. When SERVPRO arrives, we check for the water shutoff, and then we move to assessment and planning for water damage mitigation and remediation. 

Why Is a Safety Assessment Essential When the Water is Clean as It Flows Out of the Heater?

Every water damage project must begin with an evaluation of the safety risks inside the specific space affected. Each home presents a different level of risk because of a broad range of elements, including:

  • The location of electrical lines
  • The location of other utility lines
  • The types and amounts of debris submerged under the water
  • The structural features not readily viewed such as steps, depressions, low walls, pipes
  • The chance of available building cavities filling with water, threatening collapse

What Are First Steps After We Manage Safety Risks?

Our crew uses submersible pumps where water is deeper than two inches. Truck-mounted extractors can efficiently remove additional standing water using onboard generators if the electricity is temporarily shut off for safety reasons. Confined spaces might hold significant quantities of water, and we use portable extractors to access those areas and clear them of liquids. During water removal, a designated crew member begins testing of structural materials with moisture detectors and meters. This data informs our managers’ projections and drying goals as they begin planning for the structural drying stage.  

What Is My Role in Structural Drying?

After aggressive extraction, the next step is using air movement, temperature adaptations, and dehumidifiers to accelerate evaporation and capture water vapor for disposal. Our Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC)-trained Applied Structural Drying (ASD) technicians use the moisture data acquired during the testing phase to calculate how to dry out your property most efficiently:

  • The number of air movers needed
  • The angle by which we position these air movers to prevent secondary damage and optimize airflow 
  • The need for heaters to increase the temperature to increase the capability of the atmosphere to hold more vapor
  • The type (evaporative or desiccant), number, and positioning of dehumidifiers to remove water vapor

Your role is to permit the equipment to operate as long as necessary to hit the drying goals set. Our communication with you is precise and detailed as regards the need for sustained drying adhering to the results of our computations. If you or a family member moves or turns off equipment, the drying time will increase, and the chance for secondary damage like mold growth increases.

No matter how water invades your home, SERVPRO of Bellmore / Wantagh quickly develops a plan to extract it and dry the structure quickly. Call (516) 809-9600 to get the process in motion. We’re Faster To Any Size Disaster.

How Can I Get Rid of Water Under my House?

5/28/2020 (Permalink)

White mold on boards under a home. When water enters your Bellmore crawl space, call SERVPRO right away.

Why is there so much water beneath my house?

Periods of heavy rainfall can see groundwater levels rising, which can flood crawlspaces and lower regions of your home. Rising water levels beneath your property are a significant cause of concern, and you should reach out to professional water removal experts in Bellmore as soon as possible. SERVPRO technicians can adapt extraction equipment to tight spaces and perform efficiently at draining and drying subterranean areas of the home. 

Can I leave a flooded crawlspace to dry naturally?

Lack of light and ventilation can result in slow evaporation of water in your Bellmore crawlspace. Furthermore, as water evaporates, it can penetrate the underside of your subfloor or the structural frame. Without careful intervention, water in your crawl space can lead to dry rot or water damage on the lower floors of your home. There may also be microbial growth concerns which can spread rapidly through the cavities in your property. 

How can I prevent a flooded crawl space damaging my home?

- Install a vapor barrier to prevent moisture reaching the subfloor

- Proactively reduce standing water levels in a crawlspace using pumps

- Deploy dehumidifiers into the crawlspace to bring relative humidity under control

How do you dry a crawl space?

Crawlspaces are tricky to dry because they frequently have limited or restricted access. You may need to adapt traditionally drying equipment to use in a crawlspace. SERVPRO technicians attach flex hose to the return side of air-moving or extraction equipment to allow us to reach the affected area while keeping the bulkier equipment outside of the crawlspace altogether. By installing ducting and exhausting boards to the crawlspace, we can thoroughly dehumidify it and reduce secondary harm.

If standing water resides underneath your home, contact SERVPRO of Bellmore / Wantagh at (516) 809-9600.
