Kitchen Fires Always a Danger

Kitchen Fires Always a Danger

The NFPA reports that ranges or cooktops, with or without ovens, accounted for "the majority (62%) of home cooking fire incidents and even larger shares of civilian deaths (88%.) Unattended cooking was by far the leading contributing factor".  Don't get distracted when the oven and stove is on - set a timer to remind yourself to check in.

When water hits your carpet, you may think when the surface is dry you are in the clear, but that is not always the case!  Padding and the subfloor can trap and hold water.

Water in your warehouse?   Call SERVPRO of Great Neck/Port Washington!

Water in your warehouse? Call SERVPRO of Great Neck/Port Washington!

Coming in to discover that your commercial warehouse has flooded overnight is never a good thing.  In an instant your rows of shiny new merchandise and inventory can be ruined - at the very least affecting the packaging. This tidy warehouse for a national retail store unfortunately had neatly stacked cartons at the end of each shelf that were all affected by water.

Improperly done egress windows can cause mold

Improperly done egress windows can cause mold

Basements that have been finished must be monitored for excessive moisture - in this home the moisture was hidden behind the wall under an egress window. The wood studs, paper covered sheetrock reacted to the moisture levels that were not drying, and mold growth began.  Remove the moisture and remove the ability for mold to grow - in this case, requiring the drainage outside the window to be redone.

How does water get into my house?

How does water get into my house?

Do you see the access point of water in this photo?  Where the brick pavers meet the wall of the house, there is missing brick mortar - this little bit of missing mortar allows water from rain and irrigation systems to run into the home, behind a wall - causing mold damage in the basement.  Seal the HOUSE brickwork, not the pavers.  Your sidewalk and patio pavers should have been installed with a self draining system of gravel and sand.  Seek out the areas INSIDE your house that have evidence of water, sand or dirt and seal from the inside as well.

Mold will spread and grow when ignored

Mold will spread and grow when ignored

Mold is a tricky thing - it often grows silently and unseen, and at times is visible but seems innocuous - until it isn't.  Mold poses respiratory and skin health problems and should be professionally remediated to ensure the safety of your family and home.

What happens if you leave wet carpet on wood floors - Mold!

What happens if you leave wet carpet on wood floors - Mold!

When wet carpet sits on wood floors long enough, mold will grow to the point where it can permanently damage the wood.  We recommend extraction of the water first, then either drying of the carpet if it is worth saving - or discarding it.  Why extract water if you are discarding?  Weight!  Wet carpet weighs a lot more than dry carpet, making it more difficult and sloppy for the person/people tasked with the removal.

Get your Contents Out of Water

Get your Contents Out of Water

Cardboard boxes are handy and convenient, and tend to be used frequently for storing stuff - we all have lots of stuff.  But when the head to the basement, trouble can ensue - as moisture + cardboard = opportunities and food sources for mold to grow.  Store your items in plastic totes with lids, and ditch the cardboard.  If your cardboard boxes get wet, empty the box, dry out the contents 100%, then replace with a plastic container and toss the water damaged box, even if it appears to have dried.

Raw Sewage is a BioHazard

Raw Sewage is a BioHazard

We see a lot of this.....  Never try to cross a basement that has been flooded with contaminated water loaded with bacteria.  It is not recommended saving contents soaked in raw sewage - expect that you will have to let it go and discard.

Mold Can Cause Illness if Left To Grow
