Preparing for Severe Weather

3/4/2021 (Permalink)

Severe weather can happen anytime, anywhere. Being prepared to act quickly can be critical to staying safe during a weather event. In 2013, there were more than 440 weather related fatalities and nearly 2,800 injuries. Deadly weather caused more than $8 billion in property damage and many businesses affected by major disasters never reopen–especially if they do not have an emergency plan in place. Knowing your risk of severe weather, taking action and being an example are just a few steps you can take to be better prepared to save your life and assist in saving the lives of others.

KNOW YOUR RISK. The first step to becoming weather-ready is to understand the type of hazardous weather that can affect where you live and work, and how the weather could impact you, your business and your family or employees. Check the weather forecast regularly, obtain a NOAA Weather Radio, and learn about Wireless Emergency Alerts. Severe weather comes in many forms and your shelter plan should include all types of local hazards.

TAKE ACTION. Take the next step in severe weather preparedness by creating a communications plan for your home and business. Put together or purchase an emergency kit. Keep important papers and valuables in a safe place. 

BE AN EXAMPLE. Once you have taken action to prepare for severe weather, share your story with co-workers and family and friends on Facebook or Twitter. Your preparedness story will inspire others to do the same. 

Preparation is the key to making it through any size disaster. Always have a plan in place. Don’t wait until disaster strikes. 

Build an Emergency Supply Kit

Suggested items to include in basic emergency kit

  • Water (one gallon per person per day)
  • Food (non-perishable 3-day supply)
  • Manual can opener
  • Battery operated radio, preferably a NOAA Weather Radio
  • Flashlight and extra batteries
  • First aid kit
  • Whistle to signal for help
  • Clothing
  • Dust masks or bandanas
  • Plastic sheeting, garbage bags and duct tape
  • Wrench or pliers to turn off utilities
  • Hygiene items
  • Important documents; copies of insurance policies, identification and bank account information
  • Cash
  • Fire extinguisher

Water Damage? Don't Delay Drying! Call SERVPRO of Garden City/Hempstead

3/4/2021 (Permalink)

When flood damage strikes, the results are usually far too serious for property owners to handle on their own. Professional restoration services like those provided by SERVPRO of Garden City/Hempstead help to return a home back to the way it was before a flood. But many fear the costs and responsibilities associated with a full-scale restoration project. Unfortunately, few if any of the unpleasant consequences inherent in flood damage disappear without appropriate care and attention. To prevent long-term adverse effects from developing in your home or business, call for help immediately.

Here are two of the most serious problems that can develop when professional drying is delayed:

  1. Weakened Foundations

Long-term exposure to standing water and the additional moisture that’s produced during flood damage events can cause permanent and expensive damage to the very foundation of your home. Even the solid materials that foundations are made of, whether masonry, concrete or stone, can soak up small amounts of water through the cracks and pores in their material. Unless these pockets of water are removed, they can create defects in the building foundation that eventually weaken the entire structure. In the winter, water trapped inside those cracks will expand as it freezes, resulting in very serious structural issues that will be incredibly expensive to fix.

Fast and thorough drying processes are the only way to protect your home against these threats. SERVPRO of Garden City/Hempstead has the specialty equipment that’s designed to remove all unwanted moisture.

  1. Mold Growth

Mold grows wherever there’s a lot of moisture, such as around leaks in roofs, around windows, or pipes, or where there’s been flooding. It can grow most anywhere, but especially where it finds food, such as on porous surfaces like paper, cardboard, wallboard and wood. Mold can also grow on many nonporous materials such as concrete and brick. And with the right temperature, moisture and food, mold will grow most anywhere. A rolling stone may gather no moss, but one sitting still sure can. Preventative treatments can help, but the only reliable solution to developing mold problems is rapid drying and dehumidification that SERVPRO of Garden City/Hempstead offers.

Add to those two problems the fact that water, often called the universal solvent, can slowly dissolve, break apart and destroy most of the materials in your home or business and you can see why you need to call SERVPRO of Garden City/Hempstead immediately should you experience a flood or water damage of any type.

SERVPRO of Garden City/Hempstead Will Get You Back To Business After A Water Damage

1/8/2021 (Permalink)

Commercial Water Damage– Pipe Break

A commercial client stands to lose more than just the damage caused by a water leak when a water line breaks. Their business has to close until the water is removed, everything is dried, and repairs are made. The business may have to lay off employees, and customers cannot visit the site until everything returns to normal. A fast response by water removal specialists and construction repair contractors can reduce the loss significantly.

That's why you should call the experts at SERVPRO of Garden City/Hempstead as soon as you have a commercial water damage. We know how important it is to get to the job site and begin recovery to limit the time your business is offline. We are available on a 24 /7 day a week basis and usually can be onsite in less than 4 hours. A water line joint that blows out inside a wall can deliver hundreds of gallons of water in a few.

What Moisture Mitigation Work Needs to be Completed

One of the first steps SERVPRO of Garden City/Hempstead takes when the team arrives onsite is to assess the situation and make sure that there are no electrical or other hazards that might be dangerous to employees and our team members. If the water leak is inside a wall, which many are, we can remove the drywall to expose the water pipe for repairs.

Water can spread quickly, and in many cases, water seeps behind baseboards, into walls, under carpeting, and into the underpad. If we do not remove all sources of moisture, our experience tells us that these areas can be a future source of microbial growth and odors.

We may need to remove carpets, baseboards and make a one-foot flood cut in the drywall, especially near the water leak, to gain access to water and moisture inside the walls. We remove all of the moisture using directed air movers to evaporate the moisture and dehumidifiers to remove the humidity. Once the commercial space is dry, contractors can begin work to replace the drywall, baseboards, and install new carpeting and underpad.

The faster you act following a commercial water damage, the faster we can get you back in business. Call SERVPRO of Garden City/Hempstead at 516-620-4579 for 24/7 service.
