Commercial/Business Interruption is Crippling!

Water damages don’t just occur to residential homes. They can affect businesses of all sizes and when they do it is a big problem for all parties involved, especially depending on the type of business it is. Business owners have to fear customers going elsewhere during the down time and employees not being able to work or possibly be displaced to other locations.

We must be as proficient as possible since time equals money. There are certain aspects of drying structural damage that cannot be rushed, however, being certain that the correct types and amount of pieces of equipment are in place to be able to most efficiently remediate the space is of utmost importance.

Once a business owner sees our crews in action and recognizes that we are sensitive to how important the disruption is for them creates a customer for many years to come.

Freedom Fit 5k Run!

11/12/2018 (Permalink)

At SERVPRO of Patchogue, we like to sponsor a lot of events that take place right in our community.  This event was a 5k run hosted by the organization LIAT which we sponsored by providing water bottles and orange juice to all the race runners while also running in the race.

LIAT stands for Long Island Against Trafficking, and was founded when a group of individuals were awakened to the realities of human sex trafficking while attending a lecture. The words of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., "Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter" resonated in their hearts and minds. They were compelled to join in the fight for those sex trafficked on Long Island and abroad. Long Island Against Trafficking was established to raise funds for those victimized and raise public awareness of this modern-day form of slavery. They accomplish this by speaking at public and private events as well as lobbying at the local, state, and federal levels. They plan and host fundraisers to aid in financially supporting the victims. They also partner with other human rights organizations to create a powerful collective voice. To date, LIAT has raised more than $750,000 towards the aid of trafficking victims.

This event was an overall great day for all who participated and SERVPRO of Patchogue proudly supports everything that the LIAT stand for and everything they do to make Long Island a better place to be.

Mid Construction Commercial Water Damage

11/1/2018 (Permalink)

We Must Be Prepared For Anything!

Wow! This one was a challenge and time was of the essence! This Veterans Rehab Facility extension was under construction and the contractor had deadlines that had him sweating to get it done on time as it was and then the sprinkler line was accidentally hit and water was EVERYWHERE!

We were called in immediately and not only had to remediate the water damage but work in very crowded and messy conditions as it was an ongoing construction site. The space was in a bit of disarray prior to the water damage, so we worked hand in hand with their foreman to work throughout this very expansive space as efficiently as possible.

Our efforts enabled the contractor to stay on schedule with our help and at the end all parties were grateful that we were on their team!

Managing Mold

11/1/2018 (Permalink)

From the Ordinary….

Fungi and mold naturally occur in our environment.  In fact, over 100,000 kinds of fungi have been identified.  Even though some forms of mold can add value to our lives, other forms can be harmful.  Excessive amounts of mold, different types of mold, and/or exposure to molds may present health concerns for some people.

To the Unhealthy….

Intrusion of water into your home or place of work can result in mold growth.  Water intrusions can result from storm damage, plumbing, or equipment failures, long-standing leaks, and poor humidity control.  When water intrusions are not addressed right away, the resulting damage can present increased risk of harmful mold growth.  If the humidity and moisture levels in a water-damaged environment are not promptly returned to normal, mold spores may grow and multiply.

Take Precautions

SERVPRO Franchise Professionals handle water damages every day and know prompt action is required to prevent mold growth.  If there is an ongoing moisture problem in the building, be alert for:

  • The presence of visible mold.
  • Strong musty odors, which may indicate mold is present.
  • Any evidence of past moisture problems that might have caused undetected mold growth.
  • Excessive humidity.
