SERVPRO Can Swiftly Provide Commercial Properties with Water Cleanup Services

As Floods continue to storm New York state, many residents and business owners are worried that they could suffer next. Unfortunately, there are many ways that flooding can occur inside your property, and it is not all from storms. For example, a broken pipe can spew hundreds of gallons of water into your property at a rapid pace. Should you have trouble accessing your water shut-off, the volume of water could become alarming. Fortunately, here at SERVPRO, We're Faster To Any Size Disaster.

As an example, let's say that a burst pipe has left your gym in sudden need of professional Newburgh water extraction services. While burst pipes are not typical in the fall months, that does not mean they cannot happen due to irregular pressure build-ups or other issues. No matter how the problem occurs, promptly calling can positively affect costs, damage, and repair time.

Furthermore, here at SERVPRO, we're available 24/7, and we always have highly trained technicians ready to help you no matter what time you call. Some ways we can speed up our arrival time include:

  • We always have highly trained technicians ready to leave immediately to help.

Upon arriving at your fitness center, our first focus is to use our advanced technology to get the standing water removed from your property as soon as we can. Due to the volume of water in this scenario, our technicians could use truck-mounted wet/dry vacuums. These devices are designed to remove water as swiftly as possible and fill a tank attached to one of our trucks to dump it elsewhere. After the water is gone, we can test the moisture levels of your property and set up drying equipment as needed. Our goal is to secure your equipment from water damage and mitigate any harm to structural assemblies in the building.

SERVPRO Provides Mold Damage Services for Newburg Businesses That Is Detailed and Thorough

Mold can develop in commercial facilities from leaky pipes, high humidity, or water spills. When it does take hold, mold can shut your business down until it gets removed in some instances. You need professional mold removal services to thoroughly clean and sanitize the building and content.

A Precise Mold Remediation Process

When mold damage is present in Newburgh, you can count on SERVPRO to provide relief. While other steps may be required, there are significant steps required in just about every situation where mold and mildew are present. These steps include:

•    Establishing Containment – It is important to contain the mold contamination to prevent it from spreading. Airflow must be monitored to prevent spores from traveling. Plastic sheeting gets used as a barrier. Negative air pressure is established in the area using air movers or air scrubbers.

•    Removing Contamination – We base the process for this on the material. Nonporous material can usually get cleaned. We generally have to discard porous material with visible mold growth. Semiporous material such as wood or concrete can often be cleaned with abrasive methods.

•    Cleaning Dust & Settled Spores – HEPA vacuuming and damp wiping get used, even when the material is porous. 

• Drying the Material – Thoroughly drying the building and contents is vital to prevent further mold growth. 

• Proper Disposal – Damaged materials must be disposed of properly. We take care of the disposal.

Contact the mold specialists at SERVPRO of North Orange County and SERVPRO of South Orange County. You can reach us at (845) 342-3333. SERVPRO can get your business up and running in no time.

SERVPRO Uses Different Cleaning Methods to Battle Fire and Smoke Damage in Middletown

When a fire strikes a commercial building, the building itself may not be the business owner’s concern. Many companies rent building space. But you are responsible for the content, and you want to salvage all you can.

What Type of Cleaning Methods are Used for Content?

Fire and smoke damage impacts Middletown business even when it is a small fire that gets quickly contained. Smoke residue travels rapidly, causing soot to settle in the nooks and crannies of the facility. SERVPRO mitigates that, and other fire damage, with various cleaning methods:

  •   Dry Cleaning – Removes light to medium non-greasy soils. Pre-cleans excess residue before wet cleaning. Dry sponges, feather dusters, dusting cloths get used.
  •   Wet Cleaning – Effective cleaning method for moderate to heavy residues. Water gets used, typically with a cleaning agent. 
  •   Spray and Wipe – The cleaning product gets applied with a spray bottle. The surface is then wiped clean. 
  •   Foam Cleaning – This method is used for things like upholstery fabrics that might shrink when wet or when the colors may bleed. For light residue and delicate materials.
  •   Abrasive Cleaning – A liquid crème cleaner is often used with a sponge. Other cleaning products can be used with abrasive tools such as steel wool.
  •   Immersion Cleaning – For items that can be completely saturated. The item gets dipped into the cleaning agent. Excellent for things like Venetian blinds.

SERVPRO strives to restore rather than replace whenever possible. For professional fire damage restoration, contact SERVPRO of North Orange County and South Orange County at (845) 342-3333.

The source of in-home flooding can come from many places. The dishwasher may overflow, the ice machine hose can disconnect, and the water heater can spring a leak. Whenever there is any water intrusion in your home, you can count on SERVPRO to have the right tools for the job.

What Does a Moisture Sensor Do?

When we arrive at a home with water damage in Newburgh, the first thing we do is perform a scope. We use equipment that allows us to track moisture within a structure. One of the pieces of equipment we use is a moisture meter. A moisture meter:

  • Detects water in carpet and padding
  • Has sharp probes that penetrate through carpeting
  • Tracks water that has migrated to the subflooring
  • Blinks and beeps to let the tech know there is moisture present

a flooded basement with water everywhere Flooding can cause damage even in your garage. Contact SERVPRO right away to arrive on the scene and remediate the flood damage.

Several Mitigation Actions can Make the Restoration of Middletown Property More Efficient and Thorough

When flooding occurs to your home’s garage or main property, you need fast and reliable help. SERVPRO professionals are experts in flood restoration and water damage mitigation, which aids you in getting back to normal life after these emergencies.

Extraction Solutions for Concrete Garage Flooring

Flood damage in Middletown garages might not overwhelm concrete flooring, but the lack of absorbency can cause issues in other ways. Pooling can happen much faster with concrete floors, impacting sensitive materials like drywall and wood. Quick extraction solutions are critical, which can vary based on the presence of solids in the floodwater.

Surface Cleaning and Mold Prevention

Flooding into the garage space might require surface cleaning options to overcome any possible contaminants and biological hazards. Viral pathogens and fungi can often travel with natural floodwater, and affected surfaces that do not require removal and replacement must be thoroughly cleaned with disinfectants and mold-inhibiting biocides to protect the structure from further damage.

Drying a Damp Garage Space

Flooding into the garage often requires several days of drying and evaporation. Continual monitoring of the progress of drying tools and instruments ensures that we have the appropriate number of devices and the best placement of these tools to maximize output and production. For broad, open spaces like a garage, some of the best drying tools include:

  • Axial Air Movers
  • Desiccant and LGR Dehumidifiers
  • Portable Electric Heaters
