Schools should be a safe environment for our children to learn and grow, during the summer while a lot of the hustle and bustle of a typical school day is less present it’s an ideal time for water damages or mold growth to cause BIG concerns. There is no doubt that this year has brought new challenges to every school across the country and our local schools are making plans to provide students with the best choices for the upcoming school year. SERVPRO is here to help with a vast array of services to provide property cleanup, mitigation, disinfecting and restoration solutions to whatever crisis your building maybe facing.

While planning for this school year maybe different, but these facilities have one thing in common they are large public spaces that see a ton of activity. Each space is under careful consideration to provide the safest environment possible. Each school building contains a vast array of intricate systems; ventilation, plumbing, electric, communication and other working parts including; equipment, supplies, furniture and personal property. These buildings are particularly vulnerable to hidden property damage or vandalism during summer months. Unexpected water damage can go undetected or poor ventilation and high humidity can cause secondary damages including mold growth or structural damage. Summer is often an ideal time for school to make improvements, which can sometimes unearth other hidden property damage concerns including pests, water leaks or mold growth.

SERVPRO Provides Emergency Mitigation and Restoration Services

  •  Mitigation efforts are meant to prevent further damage and loss from occurring due to the existing threat, thus increasing the overall amount of work that needs to be done during the restoration itself.
    •    Restoration is performed on items that could not be saved by mitigation efforts, and items that were damaged before the restoration company arrived. This step is often a longer process and may involve the complete replacement of floors, roofs, walls and other portions of your business that have been too damaged to save.

    •    Both are necessary in order to get your business back in order after a flood, fire or other disaster, and should be performed by a professional disaster restoration company.

SERVPRO provides Professional Restoration Services for All Types of Flood Damage in Long Island Homes and Businesses

6/25/2020 (Permalink)

severe contaminated seawater flooding and other water damage It’s critical to take fast action to contact a local SERVPRO professional in your area, following a flood or storm water intrusion.

Many Nassau and Suffolk County properties are near the ocean and other natural seawater sources, saltwater flooding and the resulting damage can be a common occurrence. Similarly, to flood damage from ground water and other category 3 losses, ocean water can cause severe property water damage and can create unique restoration concerns and complications for local home and business owners.

Continual increases in storm intensity and tidal flooding is making flood and storm water damage a regular concern for many South Shore Long Island towns and communities. Flooding can have a devastating impact on your coastal building or residence, it can be difficult to predict the full extent of water and storm related damages. Additionally, saltwater can be extremely dangerous and destructive to building materials and has added safety concerns for cleanup and restoration providers. Extracting the water is just the first step that SERVPRO professionals take to thoroughly dry and restore water and storm damaged areas inside and outside of your property. Floodwater is dangerous, it’s advised to contact a reliable property damage restoration company such as SERVPRO that specializes in natural disaster and flood cleanup and remediation.

It can be difficult for the average property owner or management team to determine if the contaminated areas and contents of your property have been properly remediated, to avoid continued damage from salt corrosion and mold growth. Our restoration technicians are IICRC trained and certified with countless hours of experience responding to local coastal property damage cleanups and repairs. Starting the restoration process begins with a visit from a highly trained staff member to assess the full extent of your flooding or water damage intrusion and present a comprehensive plan for a complete property damage restoration and construction solution. While assessing your property damage our managers will help determine what parts of your loss our team can clean, sanitize and restore. Unfortunately, some items are unsafe for restoration and some controlled demolition and replacement maybe necessary. Our restoration teams work closely with our construction crews and management to provide a seamless transition from destruction to reconstruction. Throughout the process our philosophy is to restore over replacing materials and contents whenever possible, helping to lower overall cost and time needed for property disaster recovery.

Coastal Properties experience a much higher risk for property damage from salt-water, sand and other beach and waterfront related concerns.


Access to beautiful beaches and oceanfront views can be one of the many advantages to living, working or owning coastal Long Island property. However, considering how the environment, and surrounding landscape, could adversely affect your commercial or residential property could quickly turn your dream property into a potential nightmare. Waterfront properties are more exposed to driving rain and winds off the ocean during an intense storm, battering your properties exterior and creating a need for frequent maintenance. Damage caused by debris and salt is unavoidable, blowing winds and salty sea air are likely to cause some cosmetic and structural damage including; rusting metalwork, chipping and scratching to exterior surfaces, and possible damage to mechanical elements such as window latches. Suffolk County is no stranger to bad weather including hurricane force winds, storm and tidal surges, high waves and rising water levels can mean more coastal flooding leading to an increased risk for both indoor and outdoor storm, flood and water property damage.

Why Saltwater Flooding Does More Damage

Salt Breaks Down Building Materials

Similarly, to all other types of water intrusion and flood damage, saltwater flooding can quickly penetrate a variety of building materials causing significant damage to structural components and property contents. Unlike some other water sources, saltwater is more dangerous and causes more severe property damage because it is highly corrosive. The combination of water and higher levels of salt can weaken or even dissolve many types of building materials; including concrete, wood, plaster and drywall. Delignification is when saltwater penetrates wood forming fuzzy salt crystals on the surface and slowly pulls out lignin causing damage to the wood on a cellular level. If a structure is repeatedly exposed to saltwater flooding or proper decontamination (using fresh water to neutralize the excess salt) doesn’t occur, the longer the salt-water remains in contact with affected materials, this process will continue to weaken the internal structure developing serious structural problems that could lead to collapse.

Saltwater Damage Can Quickly Lead to Mold

Like any flood damage, if the moisture is not properly mitigated it can lead to mold growth in under 24 hours. Did you know salt-water accelerates the development of mold following a flood disaster? Mold needs moisture to grow, but flooding can penetrate hidden corners of a structure that can be very hard to dry. SERVPRO professionals use advanced technology including moisture detection equipment and thermal imaging cameras to help identify hidden moisture concerns during the structural drying and disinfecting process. Air movers, heaters, and dehumidifiers are strategically positioned to speed up the drying process. Transferring moisture out of damaged materials into the air, to be captured through evaporation and absorption and removed permanently. EPA-registered disinfectants applied throughout the affected areas reduce the potential for fungal growth and kill lingering bacteria or viruses.

SERVPRO Responds to Flood or Storm Water Property Damage Immediately

It’s critical to take fast action to contact a local SERVPRO professional in your area, following a flood or storm water intrusion. Be assured that our managers and crews take every necessary step to mitigate your water damage from becoming an even bigger disaster. Seawater can cause significantly more damage due to the additional salt content involved. Our SERVPRO of Oakdale/North Bay Shore team will start the flood and water damage recovery process with an inspection. Our Water Damage Restoration Technicians (WRTs) are trained to classify what kind of water they will be working with on the job site and adjust their methods accordingly. While extracting water is part of every water damage job, saltwater intrusion my also require additional steps to neutralize the salt reaction from further damaging building materials and surfaces.

Is Seawater from Storm Flooding Contaminated?

Yes!  The water from oceans, lakes, rivers or streams is considered Category 3 Water.

Category 3 Water: is known as "black water" and is grossly unsanitary. This water contains unsanitary agents, harmful bacteria and fungi, causing severe discomfort or sickness.

    •    Class 1 is the least amount of water, absorption and evaporation. It affects only part of a room or area, or larger areas containing materials that have absorbed minimal moisture.  Little or no wet carpet and/or cushion is present.

    •    Class 2 involves a large amount of water, absorption and evaporation. It affects at least an entire room of carpet and cushion (pad). Water has wicked up walls less than 24 inches.  There is moisture remaining in structural materials and substructure soil.

    •    Class 3 involves the greatest amount of water, absorption and evaporation. Water may have come from overhead.  Ceilings, walls, insulation, carpet, cushions and subfloor in virtually all the entire area is saturated.

SERVPRO professionals will cleanup and restore your Long Island property after seasonal water damage

6/17/2020 (Permalink)

Controlled demolition and air movers minimize structural water damage A fast response and action to a water damage situation can significantly reduce the overall damage.

SERVPRO of Oakdale/North Bay Shore professionals specialize in the cleanup and restoration of Long Island residential or commercial property after a seasonal water property damage emergency.

A Fast Water Removal Response Minimizes Damages

Our crews are available 24/7 to aid our local Suffolk County community with both commercial and residential water damage emergencies. A fast response and action to a water damage situation can significantly reduce the overall damage to your home or business. SERVPRO can deploy submersible pumps, water extractors, air movers, and dehumidifiers. The capacities of these units are tailored to your situation. Our objective is to return your home to its original condition as quickly as possible.

If the water level is over two inches, each team of WRTs starts removal with a commercial grade, submersible pump. All water we remove goes directly in a drain, and not across the backyard to cause a problem for neighbors or the residents one street over. If possible, technicians direct it into sewer access if one is available.

For water levels under two inches, SERVPRO WRTs utilize extraction wands and other, smaller devices. Each one has three components, but technicians start by using only the pump option to remove water from the floors. Once they begin drawing water out of carpets, upholstery, and other items, they use the other two, a heater and vacuum to carefully draw water out of carpets and from between floorboards.

Water extraction is the heart of this water restoration process, and depending on the severity of your issue, can get accomplished in several ways. For smaller volumes needing removal, a combination of portable pumps and wet-vacs get used to pull the water from the floors. For larger projects, especially those that stand to risk the structural integrity of your home considerably, our SERVPRO technicians might opt to use a pump truck.

There’s no way to completely eliminate all risk of water damage to your property, but knowing common concerns, practicing good maintenance and taking preventative measures will reduce your risks and help you respond better if something does occur. About one in 50 insured homes has a property damage claim caused by water damage or freezing each year. Our SERVPRO of Oakdale/North Bay Shore staff is highly trained and experienced in the cleanup and restoration of water property damage from seasonal temperature and precipitation. Our team can respond quickly and help you assess your damage and find a restoration solution that you can trust. If your home or business experiences a water or flood damage, calling our IICRC certified water restoration professionals can minimize the damage and help reduce your repair cost.

Most common water damage concerns impacting Long Island properties:

  • Worn Appliances and Equipment
    If your home or business has equipment that utilizes water, leakage is an ever-present danger. Air conditioners, water heaters and washing machines or anything that uses tubes, pipes, gaskets or filters to operate has the potential to leak. Regularly inspecting and maintaining your equipment, replacing old or worn parts and having adequate insulation can help prevent an unnecessary leak or pipe burst.

  • Roof Damage
    Make sure you’re checking your roof regularly, closely monitor for any damage to your perimeter flashing, roof membrane or roof penetrations like drains, pipes and gas lines. Over time, small concerns can cause incredible strain and lead to leaks leaving you with a minefield of potential hazards.

  • Faulty Pipes and Drains
    Your property’s plumbing system is susceptible to stoppages, clogs and other types of damage that could potentially spill over 250 gallons of water per day. Even a small leak can cause secondary damages such as mold growth or high-levels of humidity. Regular inspections and proper maintenance is critical to avoid plumbing concerns, look for outward signs of moisture, blue stains, rusting, cracking and bulging. Also, if your facility is exposed to lower temperatures, keep your pipes insulated at all times to prevent freezing.

  • Sprinkler Systems
    Overspray, installation errors and broken pipes and sprinkler heads can all cause water property damages. Always check your sprinkler system for signs of damage or rust, and replace them regularly to make sure they are functioning properly.

  • Mother Nature
    Natural disasters like hurricanes, severe thunderstorms and flash flooding can do untold damage to your property. You certainly can’t control the weather, but you can control how ready you are for it. Keeping your gutters clear, installing barriers and storing sensitive files and electronics at a higher level are all things you can do to keep the damage minimal.

High Humidity Levels could be causing property damage in your Bay Shore Home or Business

6/17/2020 (Permalink)

chipped paint and other water damage signs Over time hidden moisture can contribute to high humidity levels, creating ideal conditions for mold growth and other property damage concerns.

South Shore Long Island homes and commercial buildings in local towns are at increased risk from water damage disasters. Flooding, pipe bursts and sewage backups are just some of the top reason for property water damage and insurance claims in our area and obviously require emergency response cleanup and mitigation services from our SERVPRO property disaster restoration professionals right away. However, “hidden moisture” water damage can be difficult to detect and often leads to a considerable amount of property damage and an increased cost for water disaster restoration including cleanup, restoration and repairs.

One concern hidden moisture problems or sustained water damage can cause is an increase in the overall humidity of your property. The EPA recommends keeping indoor humidity between 30 and 60 percent. During warm spring and summer months keeping an ideal relative humidity can be difficult, especially if your property is hiding a moisture issue. If you are having trouble with high humidity in your South Shore residence or commercial building “hidden moisture” could be a cause.

Potential problem areas in your property for high humidity are, damp basements, moisture prone high traffic areas, bathrooms, laundry rooms and kitchens with high humidity activities and poor circulation. Common signs of excessive humidity include condensation on windows, pipes, and walls. Over time hidden moisture, for example a slow attic leak or a foundation crack can contribute to high indoor humidity levels and during ideal conditions can cause mold growth and other property concerns to emerge. The possible causes of water damage lurking in your home can originate from many different sources, with varying intensities, contamination levels, and scope of damage. Some of our largest Suffolk County property restoration projects start as small water leaks that cause serious structural and indoor air quality issues over time.

Our SERVPRO of Oakdale/North Bay Shore crews use many tools and techniques to successfully and thoroughly locate and address Long Island home and commercial property high humidity and other hidden water damage concerns. Calling local SERVPRO restoration professionals can help investigate the source behind high humidity or hidden water damage concerns and inspect for any sign of visible mold or other secondary property damages.

Common signs of hidden water damage look like:

  • Water spots or warping under sink cabinets

    If you see water under the bathroom or kitchen sink, it’s a warning sign that you have water damage and potential mold growth around the sink area. If the leak is bad enough, it could cause additional damage to the building structure, including the floor and walls, even if there’s no water present, water spots clearly indicate that pipes under the sink have a slow leak.

  • Ceiling or wall stains and bubbling

    Ceiling and wall stains are obvious signs of a roof, appliance, or plumbing leak, water saturates insulation and drywall, it can also lead to major water damage, that can compromise the structural integrity of the property. Check your roof for damage, broken tiles or puddling, also investigate appliances such as the washing machine, dishwasher, and toilets for leaky spigots that could be dripping water and causing damage
  • Squishy or Warping kitchen/bathroom floors or tile

    Water damage is  not always visible.
    In fact, it’s more common for damage to occur behind the floor, ceiling, and walls where you can’t see it. Since the bathroom is the most humid room in your home, it’s a common place for water damage and mold growth.

Moisture detection equipment can help our SERVPRO restoration professionals to identify problem areas within your home that could be contributing to your home’s high humidity. Excessive moisture and high humidity can also cause mold to grow and spread in areas behind walls and ceilings where it is not easily detected. If water damage isn’t properly mitigated, mold and other secondary damages can begin to spread throughout your property in just a few days. That’s why it’s important to choose quality restoration professionals to dry and restore your property and take necessary steps to avoid further damages.

Ask SERVPRO of Oakdale/North Bay Shore about a Visible Mold Inspection

If you suspect your South Shore Long Island property is suffering from excessive high humidity, get in touch with our SERVPRO staff right away.
