Have you recently experienced water damage from a storm or flood?

On the East End of Long Island it doesn’t take much for our homes or businesses to experience water damage. Whether its from a seasonal storm, coastal flooding, or high tides and strong winds, it happens quickly. It can lead to damage that may not be apparent at first glance. While we might think that we can save money from cleaning it up ourselves, that choice often leads to more expensive repairs down the line.

Here’s why you need to call the professionals at SERVPRO of The East End and Hamptons after a storm or flood water damage:

The American Red Cross offers the following flood safety tips:

According to the American Red Cross (ARC), floods cause more damage in the U.S. every year than any other weather-related disaster. 

  • Stay away from floodwaters. If you come across a flowing stream where water is above your ankles, stop, turn around and go another way. Six inches of swiftly moving water can sweep you off of your feet. 
  • If you approach a flooded road while driving, turn around and go another way. If you are caught on a flooded road and waters are rising rapidly around you, get out of the car quickly and move to higher ground. Most cars can be swept away by less than two feet of moving water.
  • Keep children out of flood water. They are curious and often lack judgment about running water or contaminated water.
  • Keep your pets safety in mind and keep them out of flood water too.

The word "mold" can be scary for a homeowner.

The word "mold" can be scary for a homeowner.

Not only can it cause damage to your home, it  can also be a potential health hazard to you and your family. Here are three warning signs that you shouldn't ignore: 

1) Water spots

Any wet spot in your home can be a potential sign of mold growth. This may include water spots on your ceilings or walls, or on floors in your basement or crawlspace. If you find evidence of water spots, you need to find the source of moisture and have it taken care of immediately. 

2) Discoloration

If you find a spot on a wall or floor that's discolored, it is a potential sign of mold. Discoloration that is green or black is a definite warning sign of mold growth. However, any discoloration can mean growth is present, even if it isn't of the tell-tale colors.

3) Bad smell

If you have mold growth in your home, it may cause a bad smell. Depending on the type and how much of it you have, it could be a very faint smell or it could be completely overwhelming. It can smell musty or earthy, or produce a more pungent odor. Any bad smell needs to be investigated and addressed.

Mold is not something to be ignored. If you experience any of the warning signs above, call the experts here at SERVPRO of The East End. Our trained and certified team is here to help. We have state of the art equipment and techniques to carry out mold remediation tasks of any size to keep your home safe and clean.

Summer storm damage and flooding.

Summer storm damage and flooding

Summer storms can cause flooding and wind damage. Roofs in particular, often suffer from wind damage. This can lead to water leaking through the roof to the interior of the home or business. These leaks are often difficult to detect until a great deal of damage has already been done. Storm and wind damage can also loosen flashing, which can cause leakage and water damage. Repairing your roof and flashing quickly and properly may help to prevent long term interior damage. 

Heavy summer rains can also cause flooding. Flood pump failures contribute to basement flooding and contaminated ground water in some locations as well. Flooding may also disrupt municipal water systems. Experts will need to assess ground water and evaluate the condition of pipes following flood damage.

SERVPRO of The East End is here to help with your storm damage cleanup and restoration needs! If you have questions or need additional information give us a call, 631-653-9595.

Fire & Smoke Restoration

Knowing what to do after a fire or smoke damage is stressful, but that’s where we come in. Once you contact us, our team will spring into action. Every fire damage event is different, and while our highly trained team can come up with a unique solution that is tailored to your needs, the general process remains the same.

Here are the steps that are included in our process:

1. Emergency contact. When you make your initial contact with us, you will be asked a series of questions regarding the fire damage. This helps us make sure our team is dispatched with the appropriate equipment and resources.

2. Inspection and fire damage assessment. Once on the scene, the team will inspect and test adjoining rooms of the property to determine the extent of damage caused by fire, smoke and soot. This helps us determine the right plan of action moving forward.

3. Immediate board-up and roof-tarp service. There’s a pretty good possibility your window, walls and roofs will be compromised by fire damage, so we will make sure that your property is secure and protected from further damage by boarding up missing windows and walls and placing a tarp on damaged roofs.

4. Water removal and drying (if water damage is present). Fires also generally bring water damage. We begin the removal process, getting all wet items out of the structure right away. We bring in dehumidifiers and air movers to remove the remaining water and finish up the drying process.

5. Removal of smoke and soot from all surfaces. Through the use of specialized equipment and techniques, we are able to remove smoke and soot from ceilings, walls and other surfaces.

6. Cleaning and sanitizing. We will clean restorable items and structures when it is possible. Not only will they be cleaned, but we engage the use of industrial air scrubbers and fogging equipment to help remove odors.

7. Restoration. The final step in getting your property back to pre-fire condition is restoration. This can include minor repairs like replacing drywall, painting and installing new carpet, as well as possible major repairs like reconstruction of damaged areas.

The team of highly trained experts at SERVPRO of The East End is available for emergency cleanup and restoration services 24 hours a day, seven days a week. 631-653-9595
