There are a number of reasons why your Farmingdale/Massapequa basement could flood, including: 

  • A blocked or failed sewer lateral pipe
  • Heavy rain causes surface water to pool around your home
  • Storm sewer backup
  • Sanitary sewer backup
  • Foundation drainage failure
  • Water supply-line break or hot-water tank failure
  • And many more

Identify The Three Types of Contaminated Water

4/30/2019 (Permalink)

Water Damage Identify The Three Types of Contaminated  Water SERVPRO of Farmingdale / Massapequa will inspect the contaminated water to determine the type of water and then plan the appropriate response.

Category 1: "Clean Water"

This is water from a clean source, such as a broken clean water supply line or faucet. If left untreated, category 1 water can quickly degrade into category 2 or 3 water depending upon such factors as time, temperature, and contact with contaminants.

  • Water from a clean source like a broken water line
  • If left untreated, can degrade into category 2 or 3

Category 2: "Gray Water"

This water has a significant level of contamination that could cause discomfort or illness if ingested. Sources for category 2 water may include washing machine overflow; toilet overflow with some urine, but no feces; or dishwasher overflow.

  • May contain bacteria and viruses
  • Can quickly degrade into category 3 if left untreated

Category 3: "Black Water"

This water is grossly unsanitary and could cause severe illness or death if ingested, and any contact should be avoided. Sources for category 3 water could include flooding from rivers or streams, water from beyond the toilet trap, water from the toilet bowl with feces, or standing water that has begun to support microbial growth.

  • May contain untreated sewage, harsh chemicals, and microbes
  • Water from flooding rivers or sewer backup

Fire Damage Call SERVPRO of Farmingdale/Massapequa Help You Destroy Odors Destroy your odors

Even a small fire can cause odors for years to come if the affected areas are not properly cleaned and deodorized. Fire, smoke, and soot damage in your home or business can create unpleasant and potentially permanent problems. As various materials burn, the smoke produced travels throughout the structure, leaving odorous residues and deposits on surfaces and in hard-to-reach places. Unless fast, professional action is taken, these residues and deposits can cause permanent damage to contents and may result in resurfacing odors. With technicians certified by the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration (IIRC), SERVPRO of Farmingdale/Massapequa Franchise Professionals provide specialized services that can rid your home or business of offensive odors left by fire or smoke damage. SERVPRO of Farmingdale/Massapequa Franchise Professionals will not cover up lingering odors with a fragrance; they seek out and remove the sources of the odor.

Other Odors that may require DEODORIZATION:

  • Cigarette Smoke
  • Pet Odors
  • Decomposition
  • Mold

 Whether its fire, water, or mold damage, or just a stubborn odor that refuses to go away, we'll help make it "Like it never even happened."

If you or a customer suffer fire damage or some other accident and require deodorization services, contact SERVPRO of Farmingdale/Massapequa Franchise Professionals @ 5156-221-3666.

What is Soot?

3/12/2019 (Permalink)

Fire Damage What is Soot? Soot will adhere to walls and any other surface that is cooler than the heart of the fire.

Smoke is the result of incomplete combustion, which produces tiny particles of approximately 2.5 microns in size of carbon in the air. When deposited, these particles are identified as soot. Soot particles may contain chemicals or metals making it hazardous because they are small enough to enter into your lungs.  To put into perspective, any particles that is 10 microns or larger gets trapped in the upper respiratory track.  Particles that are 5 microns or smaller can penetrate the lungs.

Soot will adhere to walls and any other surface that is cooler than the heart of the fire. If a wall is free from soot, which can help to indicate the area where the fire started and making the hottest area.

Different Types of Smoke:

There are two different types of smoke–wet and dry. As a result, there are different types of soot residue after a fire. Before restoration begins, SERVPRO of Farmingdale / Massapequa  will test the soot to determine which type of smoke damage occurred. The cleaning procedures will then be based on the information identified during pretesting. Here is some additional information:

Wet Smoke – Plastic and Rubber

Low heat, smoldering, pungent odor, sticky, smeary. Smoke webs are more difficult to clean.

Dry Smoke – Paper and Wood

Fast burning, high temperatures, heat rises therefore smoke rises.

Protein Fire Residue – Produced by evaporation of material rather than from a fire

Virtually invisible, discolors paints and varnishes, extreme pungent odor.

Keep Your Rain Gutters Clean

3/4/2019 (Permalink)

The gutter will become heavier from the excess debris and water, potentially causing it to break. If your gutter breaks away from the house, you’ll have to cover the costs of a new gutter, as well as any damages done to your siding and/or windows. If the gutter is barely hanging to your roof and there is resting water, it can lead to the risk of rusting. Excess water in the rain gutter can lead to spilling over onto the house’s siding, and flooding in the basement etc.  These complications and costs of repair can be avoided by keeping your rain gutters clean.

 Faster Response

Since we are locally owned and operated, we are able to respond quicker with the right resources, which is extremely important. A fast response lessens the damage, limits further damage, and reduces the restoration cost.
