It is natural to reach for a mop and bucket or your shop vac whenever you have a water spill or appliance failure inside your home. However, having any standing water means that moisture often lurks in areas where the naked eye cannot see. This means that DIY is never the best course of action if you want your Niagara Falls property back to pre-water loss condition. SERVPRO is ready and able to make it “Like it never even happened” with our extensive skills and access to professional-grade restoration equipment.

We provide a prompt response so that water mitigation can begin as soon as the assessment and inspection are complete.

This plan also includes detailed calculations for the number of fans and dehumidifiers we need to achieve our drying goals.

Moisture Detection Tools At-The-Ready

Our technicians must work to restore relative humidity (RH) to normal levels with any water-related incident.

  • Meters
  • Sensors

Fast facts about mold:

Mold spores are microscopic, and they are everywhere in the world around us. There are countless types of mold, both inside and outside. The tiny spores can get into your home via your home’s HVAC system, open windows, on your clothing, and even on your pets. Some facts to keep in mind include:

  • Strong, musty odors are usually a tell-tale sign that mold is developing somewhere within your home. This colony could be in your basement, around bathroom fixtures, under cabinetry, or even behind walls where a hidden pipe leak is lurking.
  • Mold spores thrive on moisture and colonize rapidly in the right environment. All mold needs to multiply is moisture, warm temperatures, and an organic food source. 
  • Many people may have a hidden mold issue that develops due to poor ventilation or water damage that was not addressed thoroughly.
  • The cause of the mold infestation must get handled with any mold cleanup and damage project; otherwise, the mold can come right back.

  • HEPA filtration is rigged with our air scrubber technology to extract odorous particulates from the air.

What Should I Do Until You Arrive for Mold Damage Cleanup?

You must try to stay out of any areas where mold is suspected. We also suggest that you:

  • Never spray anything on the mold or disturb it with cloths or brushes
  • Turn off your HVAC system or any fans

Efficient Water Damage Repair in a Niagara Falls Commercial Facility

12/13/2022 (Permalink)

Vacuum Water SERVPRO of North Niagara County understands how important your business is. Let us help you out.

The Key to Recovery after Water Damage in Niagara Falls

Appliance malfunction or plumbing leaks in Niagara Falls commercial premises cause unexpected destruction. Timely water damage repair is necessary because the longer water is left standing, the higher the risk of mold damage, electrical hazards, and corrosion. Conducting business as usual is also heavily impaired, and the risk to your business equipment and inventory rises. Even if your equipment is not submerged, higher humidity levels can lead to condensation damaging your electronics.

Successful water damage repair in a Niagara Falls business space is possible if business owners act quickly and seek help from professional restoration teams such as SERVPRO. Our crews arrive on-site quickly enough to execute optimal cleaning and sanitation actions and emergency extraction to prevent further damage. We have highly trained personnel to determine which steps to take first and how to use various restoration equipment to extract moisture from your facility.

Moisture extraction methods:

  • Dehumidification
  • Extraction
  • Air moving

Moisture Extraction To Restore Commercial Facilities 

Commercial premises which have carpeted floors would be heavily affected when water ingress. Light wands can be used on glue-down carpets and are appropriate for the initial extraction steps. Also, deep extraction tools such as self-propelled extraction rovers help with other rugs. Powered by an independent motor, these devices are designed to allow a restorer ride on them, adding weight which improves effectiveness. They compress the carpet and pad to squeeze out the water before extraction through the vacuum system. The devices typically move at variable speeds, either forward or backward.

Other extraction equipment include:

Water restoration continues after extraction as water can hide behind walls and flooring; hence, drying must occur. SERVPRO has the best detection equipment to measure the humidity levels in your facility and the materials throughout your factory or office. We use moisture sensors and thermal imaging cameras to inspect and monitor the moisture in building materials, then set up air movers and dehumidifiers to further reduce humidity levels.

SERVPRO Gives Tips for Drying Water Damaged Walls in Niagara Falls

9/12/2022 (Permalink)

water damaged wall and floorboard; water stains on wall Water damage is a common occurrence in homes. Just a little water can ruin walls. SERVPRO has the know how to fix the damage.

Effective Wall Drying Techniques for Niagara Falls Homes 

Because of our growing knowledge of rapidly changing industry standards, equipment, and practices, we are well prepared for the needs of your Niagara Falls home after a water loss. We can work to slow or entirely stop the water migration throughout the property with our initial arrival, establishing clear drying zones for moisture removal over the days following our first visit. 

Structural cavities and wallboard are among the most challenging materials and elements to dry and restore, leading to many critical decisions during water damage restoration in Niagara Falls homes. Although the project manager and estimator determine many initial choices during the scoping phase, we must also continually monitor changes in water migration and newly saturated materials to determine the best course of action when recovering a water-damaged residence. 

Drying walls and similar materials typically come down to three potential practices that might need to get implemented to protect either the sheetrock or structural cavities and framework beyond this wall layer. For example, additional demolition beyond what occurred in the pre-mitigation phase might be necessary. It is also possible that cavity injections with positive or negative pressure systems can now benefit the drying process. Lastly, addressing vapor barriers can be another challenge that changes regularly, and our technicians must vigilantly monitor when these barriers exist and should be perforated. 

While balancing the presence of air movers and dehumidifiers is also an essential restoration practice, there are numerous points throughout the drying process when these machines must move to new locations. This practice continues to provide constant moisture removal from affected surfaces and prevents water damage to materials and contents from over-drying. 

There are many ways that we can maximize the drying of wall materials in your home. We can reduce the need for tear-out and reconstruction through the appropriate placement of drying tools to more intricate practices like injecting structural cavities and perforating vapor barriers.

SERVPRO Offers Many Cleanup and Restoration Services for the Greater Niagara Falls Area

The majesty of Niagara Falls’ main attraction draws tourists from all over the world. While the water might be beautiful to watch cascading off a rock face, water in your home can be another story entirely. Addressing disasters that affect your home and business is the centerpiece of our restoration team, and we can offer fast and efficient solutions when they matter the most. From prompt extraction to fire debris removal, our response is quick and confident to save customers time and money on the recovery that their property requires after an emergency.

Water Damage Cleanup and Restoration

Water damaging incidents top the list of our most common callouts, meaning that these situations are what our SERVPRO professionals must stay most prepared to face. With dozens of reasons that water emergencies can befall your Niagara Falls home, many have turned to our SERVPRO team for an efficient extraction response. By arriving quickly after you call, our professionals can deploy water removal equipment and preliminary drying tools to make the spread of damage throughout your home less devastating.

In addition to the water cleanup and drying that your Niagara Falls home might need, our technicians must also often work our restoration around steep temperature drops. Cold snaps can lead to burst pipes and other water loss hazards, but it can also slow the evaporation of moisture and water trapped in structural elements like flooring and wallboard. We can establish a drying zone upon arrival that helps to improve the efficiency of evaporation with the use of portable electric heaters.

Air movers are the foundation of drying water losses in area homes. Because of how widespread water effects can become after a disaster, multiple units might need to get used simultaneously. We can daisy-chain several air movers together to minimize outlet usage and to improve the output of heated air in vulnerable points of your Niagara Falls home.

Storm and Flood Water Extraction Plus

There is no mistaking the powerful storms that can affect the area throughout the year. From summer rainfall and fierce winds that can threaten many of the hotels and accommodations throughout the city to heavy snowfall that can lay on roofs and cause collapses, storm losses can thoroughly damage Niagara Falls properties. Many shoreline cities like Lewiston are also susceptible to these powerful storms making landfall. 

How you react to storm losses can make the difference in how much of your Niagara Falls home or business can get salvaged and restored after a disaster. Reaching out to our SERVPRO team as soon as possible can get both our experienced restoration technicians and our in-house residential contractors on the way to help. Our contractors can offer both temporary solutions like board up and tarping services as well as full reconstruction where necessary.

Flooding is always a concern with structural damage after a storm loss, so along with qualified contractors, we send our experienced technicians to help your Niagara Falls property as well. We arrive with efficient extraction tools like gas-powered trash pumps and fierce drying tools and other related items like our centrifugal air movers, desiccant dehumidifiers, and potent disinfection products.

Mold Remediation Done Right!

While it might be impossible to remove all of the mold spores in your Niagara falls home, as these exist in every environment naturally, we can work to provide real-time filtration and remediation of your Niagara Falls property. Mold colonies can spread rapidly, meaning that nearly every area of your home could be at risk when the colony begins moving from its original location to new organic materials.

Remediation can involve numerous approaches happening simultaneously. Some situations involve surface treatments that can remove spotting and early-state mold growth. The application of antimicrobial agents in these circumstances can often remove the pressing threats. Other conditions might have our remediation teams utilizing controlled demolition tactics to remove active colonization and keep this threatening organism from moving farther throughout your Niagara Falls residence.

Among the final steps that our SERVPRO team might take mitigation of mold damage in Niagara Falls homes is deodorization. With potent products and effective delivery systems like thermal foggers, we can do more than ever to make it “Like it never even happened.” The same goes for long-term dry solutions for your residence. With a positioning on Lake Ontario and other substantial bodies of water, moisture content and humidity are persistent threats to most structures. Installing permanent dehumidifiers or helping to address continued moisture penetration concerns can help to prevent recurrences of mold damage moving forward.

Fire Debris Removal, Odor Control, and Build Back Is Why SERVPRO Is the Right Choice

From the time that you first recognize a fire emergency is underway in your Niagara Falls home, you should be thinking about restoration. The longer that you wait to get vital emergency services started like fire debris removal and content management, the more destructive these disasters can be to both your home and your belongings. We have a fast response to fire losses 24/7, so you can be assured that you always have qualified and highly trained technicians (Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification) accredited mobilizing quickly when you need it.

Controlled demolition seeks to prevent structural concerns from getting worse, or from compromised materials collapsing on our working crew or occupants of the property. Only removing the damaged portions makes reconstruction go faster and cost less in the long run.

Cleaning and deodorization are vital elements of every fire loss recovery, and these processes involve many of our cutting-edge tools, including:

  • Thermal foggers

  • Soda/media blasting equipment

Water Damage Mitigation Services In Niagara Falls?

SERVPRO Can Help You Remediate the Water Damage in Your Niagara Falls Home!

Visualize a scenario where your Niagara Falls home suffers water damage. You might picture a burst pipe or a leaking appliance causing water to spread throughout your home. Unfortunately, these situations do happen, and many homes face accidents, both catastrophic and diminutive.

A calm reaction is genuinely the best defense you can have when dealing with water damage in your Niagara Falls home. Immediately reaching out for help can reduce wait times and help reduce the chances of the damage inside your home becoming permanent. Here at SERVPRO, we vow to "respond quickly when you have a water emergency."

Recently, SERVPRO helped a local home that ended up "flooded due to a toilet tank overflow while the owner was away." Unfortunately, something as small as a water supply line can be the culprit of significant damages. As soon as we arrived, our SERVPRO techs "extracted the standing water and [then] set up drying equipment."

When so much water spreads throughout the entire home, the job becomes more complicated. We have to do a lot more than merely removing the water, setting up drying equipment, and then checking for appropriate moisture levels. Whenever water sits for a significant period, flood cuts and floor-removal usually become a factor.

In the local home, the busted water supply line put "half of an inch of water throughout the whole home." Once we removed the standing water with advanced technological devices such as wet/dry vacuums and extractors, we packed up the entire home. We relocated their belongings to one of our facilities, where they could be treated.

Flood cuts are done to ensure that mold growth does not occur and save as much material as possible. For as little as half an inch, our flood cuts can be "two-foot" in height. Throughout the home, our technicians can remove carpeting, flooring, and toe-kicks. We can detach cabinetry from the walls and check the framing for damages. Here at SERVPRO, it is our job to inspect every inch of your home to ensure that you can go back to living your life, “Like it never even happened.” No matter the damages, we can help you, like we helped this local home.

If you require water damage mitigation services, call for help today! Speak with SERVPRO of North Niagara County by dialing (716) 299-0330. We're always available to help you.

Working On Commercial Fire Damage Repair in Niagara Falls

a store on fire with firemen in front of it trying to put it out with a hose Has your business recently been affected by a fire? Team SERVPRO has the equipment and technicians to help mitigate the damage.

SERVPRO Aids with Fire Restorations in Niagara Falls

Despite efforts to make buildings safe and prevent fires from occurring, it is still possible that an inferno could ignite due to a freak accident like an electrical short. Even if the fire that sparked up inside your company's storage warehouse is small, several issues can still arise. In fact, the smoke coming from the blaze can create more problems with your structure than the actual flames.

Whenever our SERVPRO technicians work on restoring commercial fire damage in Niagara Falls, we pay extra attention to smoke-related issues. Once we arrive at your business' storage warehouse, we can start by conducting a thorough inspection of your building. We can begin inspecting the location of the fire and determine what items got torched severely and need to be removed and replaced and what things we can save by either cleaning or refinishing. We can then inspect your entire structure to see which storage warehouse areas were affected by soot residues. We can also perform a wipe test on affected surfaces to determine which methods and chemicals work best in each affected area.

Procedures we can perform as a part of the restoration process

  • Fire & Water Damage Restorations
  • Fire Debris Removal
  • Fire Damage Cleanups
  • Smoke Remediation
  • Content Cleaning
  • Restorative Carpet Cleaning
  • Structural Deodorization

Smoke flowing through your warehouse can also cause unpleasant smells to linger since smoke can penetrate porous materials. In some cases, cleaning soot residues from all affected surfaces can help eliminate foul odors. But in other cases, we can use a thermal or ultra-low volume (ULV) fogger that breaks down deodorants into microscopic particles to mimic smoke's behavior. 

If you ever have a small fire break out inside your storage facility, call SERVPRO of North Niagara County at (716) 299-0330.
