How to Prevent Damage to your home

8/5/2021 (Permalink)

Fallen trees When trees fall, know who to call

Storms are as unexpected as the damage they bring. However, with the right preparation, much of the storm damage can be circumvented or averted altogether. Here are some tips below to help avoid the damages future storms may carry. When disaster strikes let us be the ones you call. 

Clean Your Gutters

As it rains, and your gutters are clogged from a lack of cleaning, overflow will run down into your home. Often, this water will remain undetected and sit pooled up. Over time, mold growth occurs in these areas that have remained moist. Cleaning your gutters and ensuring they are sturdy before the rain comes can minimize the damage a storm may cause.

Landscaping and drainage

Depending on the land your home was built on, water runoff after any amount of rain can accumulate around your foundation, in turn causing a flood in your home. Fortunately, there are solutions with specialized landscaping. Better pathways can be made for water runoff, guiding the water away from your home. If you notice puddles or water accumulation near your home when it rains, contact a professional to help, before a storm comes. This will make a difference in whether your home is damaged or not.

Damaged or Dead Trees 

Severe damage often occurs when a tree or limbs break off and topples onto or even into a home. Snow and rain can weigh down trees, while wind causes them to bend. If this happens to trees and limbs that are dead or damaged, there’s a high chance that they will break. Before the storm season comes, be sure to trim your trees, and remove all dead limbs.

Five Services We Offer That MAY Surprise You

8/21/2020 (Permalink)

Technicians and Customer Did you know? We offer services that go beyond emergency response to provide some routine services for your home or business!

“I didn’t know you guys did that?!?”

It’s a line I hear often. Most who are familiar with our household name, SERVPRO, don’t realize the catalogue of services we’re equipped to offer. I’m still educating my mom on what exactly SERVPRO does, besides the clients and neighbors that I speak to daily about what sets our team apart from all the rest. Aside from the rapid response time, nationwide network, and decades of expertise, I like to tell them about all of the services that are not immediately obvious to those who have heard of the SERVPRO name before.

As the #1 name in Cleanup and Restoration, to the average on-looker it seems that we are primarily an emergency service provider. Which is only half of the story. The truth is that your local SERVPRO can provide cleaning and maintenance that provides high value in one stop. I’m talking about a deep clean that will leave you speechless when you walk into your home. Or having a one-stop that takes care of cleaning your office’s air ducts each quarter, without hassle.

#5 Carpet Cleaning

SERVPRO offers a professional carpet cleaning and maintenance service that can extend the lifetime of your carpet and upholstery by a longshot. To help your carpets look in top shape, our professionals offer specialized cleaning methods that target both optimal cleaning based on type of carpet or upholstery and levels of clean for deeply soiled carpets. 

  • Bonnet Cleaning / A more gentle, but effective method for short pile carpets.
  • Hot Water Extraction / A deep cleaning method for all carpet types.
  • Deluxe Precondition and Rinse / Helps restore deeply soiled areas.
  • Showcase Premier Cleaning / The most thorough cleaning method in the business.
  • Dry Cleaning / For more sensitive materials

Think of a carpet as a filter. Carpets trap dust, dirt, gases, animal hair, and more. Besides frequent vacuuming, preventative maintenance includes spot removal, pilating the carpet, and using mats to limit soil getting tracked into the home. In order to prevent moderate to worse soil buildup, it’s important to regularly schedule carpet cleaning by a professional. If you think that at-home cleaning methods are just as effective, think about this. Your carpet could be causing itchy skin, athlete’s foot, asthma, and eczema. The list goes on, but you get the idea. Dirty carpets = health risks.

Our recommendation? A professional clean for your home’s carpet should be done at least annually to keep them as close to their original appearance as possible. By hiring a professional, you get access to the industrial cleaning materials that can penetrate layers of dirt that can hide behind what you see on the surface. Get rid of those stains and keep your home clean.

BOTTOM LINE: If you have carpets in your home or office, it’s time to think about the last time they were cleaned and taken care of professionally. Besides appearance, it can help prevent allergies and save you money by not having to replace your carpet regularly.

#4 Air Duct and HVAC Cleaning

Have you ever experienced bad indoor air quality? It can cause headaches, fatigue, coughing, sneezing, and dryness to your skin and respiratory system. The usual suspect is ventilation systems that are not maintained regularly. 

Did you know? According to the EPA, indoor air is actually way more polluted than outdoor air. This is due to the closed environment where particles can be easily trapped and develop into toxins that linger in the air and also on surfaces.

Our teams routinely inspect heating, ventilation, and air conditioning units (HVAC). This means a regular check-up on your HVAC to keep them running clean that will A) extend the lifespan of your equipment and B) make sure you’re not breathing in dirty air and C) save money on energy costs by making sure your equipment is not overheating or leaking.

BOTTOM LINE: If you’ve never scheduled an air duct or HVAC cleaning, get it done ASAP! Waiting any longer could allow for prolonged health consequences in addition to money wasted on equipment that is not maintained optimally. Allow a SERVPRO technician to inspect and tell you the best cleaning method to make sure you’re breathing clean air and saving money on your utility bills.

#3 Drape and Blind Cleaning

Surprised? Join the club. But, SERVPRO professionals are trained at cleaning various fabrics. Care is taken to inspect fabrics to make sure that the best cleaning method is chosen, making sure that we are treating your fabrics expertly. Draperies are dry cleaned by our technicians using our state of the art equipment, and they are done inside the home!

How does it work? We use a special solvent on your draperies, then it is then put under pressure to extract the chemicals. The result? No damage to the material and brand new looking curtains and drapes!

BOTTOM LINE: We recommend cleaning your drapery approximately every two years. It’s not invasive and will keep your curtains looking brand new as well as reduce odors that may be clinging to the fabrics. 

#2 Vandalism and Graffiti Cleanup

Destruction of your property can be extremely aggravating. As a native New Yorker, I see it all the time on homes, apartment buildings, and commercial spaces. Simple acts, such as breaking a window, are a gateway for water and mold damage to come in and wreak havoc on your property.

But, you may wonder what exactly can our team do to fix your issue? We can: remove graffiti from exterior walls, clean outdoor spaces (think driveways, walkways, asphalt), remove debris, and remove odors.

BOTTOM LINE: If you find graffiti on your property or find that your place has been vandalized, call our technicians. Our team will clear out the mess and make it look "Like it never even happened." We might even help you teepee their house in retaliation (just kidding!).

#1 COVID-19 Cleaning

As we slowly return to brick-and-mortar establishments, it’s crucial to make sure your business or organization is equipped to deal with the high standards for hygiene. Certified: SERVPRO Cleaned, our newly unveiled defensive pathogen program, is designed to offer a professional clean that is just not possible via regular custodial cleaning. We aim to inspire confidence in our communities by working with businesses to create a custom tailored plan to make sure they are ready as they welcome back employees, increase indoor capacity, and/or routinely sanitize to protect against the virus.

Did you know? Our technicians are biochemical spill remediation specialists. Our high standards of cleaning have been the norm for our company for over 50 years. Compare that to other professional services that are scrambling to create cleaning solutions that are able to tackle the unique challenges of the COVID-19 strain. 

What to expect? If you’re interested in participating in this program, a team member will go over what we call our 3 unique C’s: Consult, Clean, and Certify.

Let’s Break It Down

Consult - Upon inspection and your businesses unique needs, we custom-create a cleaning program to keep your facility clean and disinfected properly.

Clean - Time to enact the plan. Our team will come in to perform a deep clean using our EPA approved solutions that abide by the standards for decontamination and cleaning. Our cleaning methods abide strictly by CDC standards, in order to give you and your customers the highest level of confidence possible when returning.

Certify - Once your facility is sparkling clean, our team will provide you with a Certified: SERVPRO Cleaned shield sticker to adhere to the front door of your business. This acts as a declaration of your businesses commitment to the comfort and safety of the community. 

BOTTOM LINE: Businesses, schools, offices, private residences, churches, gyms, and other establishments can sign up for our COVID-19 cleaning. If you’re just re-opening? This can make sure that you’re ready to welcome back employees and/or clients. Been open at a limited capacity? Use our program to inspire greater confidence to the community that you’re equipped to handle the dangers of being open amidst a still-prevalent pandemic.

Simply put? There is no better way to clean and protect against the virus than with our team for our Certified: SERVPRO Cleaned. Call (212) 768-9400 to schedule a consultation today.

Staten Island Business Scorned by Mold

10/28/2019 (Permalink)

green equipment cut walls Your locally owned and operated, SERVPRO of Southern Staten Island has a crew of trained professionals for you & we are available 24/7 to help!

Mold can have a destructive impact on a commercial property. Mold from storms or other types of water exposure can badly damage local businesses and homes. Commercial properties are at a high risk of losing business until or while the mold issue is being resolved. Commercial Properties need a crew of highly trained professionals to remove or re-mediate mold. 

Our crew is extremely familiar with dealing with mold remediation and removal. We were recently working at a commercial mold loss. When our crew arrived on site, we removed all the carpeting in two rooms that were impacted by mold. Then, we finished removing the sheet rock on all four walls of the office.

We needed to remove all the debris. Unfortunately, the mold issue had spread to three palettes near the company’s file room that was supporting several empty boxes. The bottom rows were completely contaminated, so we had disposed of them for safety purposes. The area was completely wiped down with antimicrobial, to get rid of any harmful toxins that could have spread. Our crew then placed additional drying equipment by the conveyor belts of the office and stairwell in the back end of the warehouse.

In the days following, our crew began removing the screws from the frame holding the sheet rock and HEPA vacuumed all debris. The area was sprayed with a second coat of antimicrobial. The floors in one of the property’s storage room and the main office were removed. The room was HEPA vacuumed and wiped down with antimicrobial, this was necessary to kill the spread of bacteria and viruses that. We manipulated the filing cabinets to provide the property’s workers with accessibility to their contents. The filing cabinets were thoroughly wiped down with antimicrobial. All affected contents, including two desks were photographed for insurance purposes and then disposed. 

SERVPRO of Southern Staten Island is fully prepared with a qualified crew and the right materials to remove a commercial property’s mold infestation of any size. We can respond quickly with 24 hours, around the clock services to get your business back up and running in no time. Call us at (718) 979-4100.

why use SERVPRO

If there is flooding in your New York home you should use SERVPRO to help to remove the aftermath of the flood. NYC is, after all, a serious of islands and sometimes floods from hurricanes and problems like sewage backup, but even the occasional burst or leaky water pipe can reap havoc on your home. SERVPRO provides flood remediation services, but understanding what this exactly involves can provide insight into just how valuable this service is. 

Inspection of Your Home 

If you call them in after a flood, they will start by visiting your home, inspecting the flooded area, and putting in place a flood remediation plan. Homeowners are generally aware that excess water should be removed from a flooded home, but often find themselves unable to locate other problems that are present after flooding. This is often because a significant portion of the damage that results from a flood can be hidden behind your walls and not noticeable to the naked eye. This danger is not immediate in nature and grows over time, and having it remedied quickly can be of significant benefit. 

Once the damaged area has been surveyed, the flood remediation plan can be put in place. 

Water Remediation Services 

Water can cause all sorts of problems in your home. Once it gets behind walls it can contribute to the growth of mold. In the case of salt water flooding, the salt water can cause electrical fires and contribute to other serious home problems. Further, it can contribute to structural problems in your home. 

SERVPRO works to address these problems by getting rid of water quickly using high quality fans and dehumidifiers to remove moisture from the flooded area. They apply anti-fungal treatments to the area which helps to inhibit mold growth and other addressable problems. They then will identify any structural problems that are identified through this flood remediation process and provide you with recommendation regarding future services to address the problems. In the meantime, they will often provide you with some basic band-aid like solutions for major problems that are being identified in the process.

Infrared Detectors

Infrared Water Damage Image

Identifying the source of water damage at home or in your commercial building could prove to be a challenging task. This is because you only see the signs of a problem when they manifest themselves through ceiling, wall, floor or other parts of the building. However, our company is there to assist you in finding the source of the problem and helping you fix it. SERVPRO of Southern Staten Island makes the whole process hustle free where we use advanced technology like infrared detectors to identify the source of your water leakage.

How it works

The infrared detectors are tools with cameras that take rainbow-colored images. The images do not show the exact source of the problem. However, they show temperature differential and thermal patterns. The images help identify cold spots by the of presence of uneven insulation and moisture. Water spots in the images are always seen as dark blue spots since evaporative moisture cools the surface of nearby materials. Only a profession can be able to read the images and interpret them for you and at SERVPRO of Southern Staten Island we have just the right team to do so. Give as a call for any assistance in finding the source, cleaning and restoring your house. Save your house and on cost with us.
