High winds and rains can lead to flooding. People seek shelter to protect themselves from getting wet or putting themselves in dangerous situations. The shelter we use, such as our homes or offices, schools or retail locations, is designed to withstand the elements and keep them from getting into the property's interior. This is important because it gives you immediate protection against the elements. You are more secure indoors than you are outside. Our indoor spaces are designed so that we can live in them year round. However, it is when the structures fail that we should be prepared to make repairs to ensure safety.

Storm damage to commercial properties or homes can be apparent and require immediate attention. However, it is possible for the damage to go undetected for long periods of time. SERVPRO can help with both types of damage. Our damage repair team has the ability to provide construction services as well as restoration services. The job can be completed with less material and labor. 

No matter if you need to board up or tarping or complete construction services we can help. Call us today and speak with a manager about our services and how to help you.

In recent years, New York City has been experiencing more severe flooding, particularly in the summer months. Experts predict that these problems will affect tens to thousands of residents and become more problematic as the city's water and sewage systems age. Experts also believe that climate change will only make the problem worse. Historical weather data shows that this increase in rainfall is a real concern. In the last 100 years, the daily average rainfall in the city has more than doubled. This change can be observed all year, but it is most noticeable in summer, when the average rainfall has risen more than two-and a half inches in just sixty years.

The Modern Impact of Flood Damage to the City

New Yorkers have suffered significant losses from flooding in the last twenty years. According to the First Street Foundation, 14% of all properties in New York are at risk from flooding. According to the organization, flood-related damage will increase by approximately 15,000.

If your property suffers water damage from flooding, call us immediately. We work with your insurance company to quickly begin restoration and repair services.

Candles can add a warm, inviting look to your home and give off a pleasant smell. Candles can burn homes if they are not taken care of.

A homeowner accidentally set fire to his daughter's bedroom after leaving a candle burning. The flames were also ignited by a fan. Although firefighters were able to extinguish the flames quickly, the smoke damage in the room was severe.

Removing Charred Items

The damage caused by the candle in the room had to be repaired. The homeowner/ adjuster must approve the techs before they can dispose of any items. This ensures that homeowners are informed about every step of the restoration process. It also ensures that SERVPRO(r),'s actions don't fall outside their insurance coverage.

Testing before Cleaning

Before using any solution, it is crucial to test for smoke residues. This will help ensure that the correct agents and methods are being used. The temperature of the fire and the objects that were harmed by the flames can affect the amount of residue. You can find both dry and wet smoke in the same area.

Techs use dry cleaning sponges for removing the dark, fine smoke often found on walls. Solvents are often used to remove wet smoke from surfaces.

Odor Control for the Bedroom

The removal of charred items can reduce fire odors. Hot air expands in a fire and can push odorous smoke into porous objects. The same methods of odor control, such as thermal fogging, can often be used to remove the stench.

Duct Inspection

The fire started in the bedroom of the daughter's room, but the family still used the HVAC. It was possible that the soot could spread through the ductwork and into the rest of the house.
SERVPRO(r), technicians eliminated all traces odors from the air ducts.
