3 Necessary Steps to Take AFTER A FIRE Occurs

3/8/2020 (Permalink)

The impact a fire can have on you, your home or business is, of course, overwhelming. Losing property, keepsakes and sometimes even more, can be devastating. In addition to the reality of the destruction that a fire might cause, the rebuilding process is often believed to be a lengthy and stressful project. However, it doesn’t have to be. With the right plan and tools, getting back on track after a fire can be easier than you think.

Step 1: Secure What You Can

We know that a fire can rip through a home or business and leave nothing left in its path. Should you be fortunate enough to be allowed access, after a Fire Marshall has given the OK, make sure that you’re practicing safe measures. In addition, salvaging what you can from the home is probably best done, as soon as possible. Depending on your limitations, you might not have access to the area once remediation work begins.

Step 2: Call Your Insurance Company

If you haven’t already reported the fire, this is a very important next step. This helps them gather the information they need in order to begin the claim process.  At this point you will be given the claim number to give to your remediation company.

Step 3: Select A Reputable Company

When choosing a company to help with the remediation, they have to be reliable. It’s important to ask for referrals, read reviews, and conduct your own research in order to find the best company to help get your home or business back to the way it was before the damage occurred.

At SERVPRO of Ronkonkoma, we take great pride in our remediation and have been helping Long Island families and businesses get back on their feet for years. If you or someone you know has experienced damage caused by a fire, please call us today at (631) 585-0007 or fill out our contact form and we will be happy to begin the conversation toward a cleaner future.

Winter Storm Watch: Preparation You Can Take

1/28/2020 (Permalink)

At home, winter storms can take a toll on not only your home, but you as well! Hours upon hours spent shoveling, de-icing, and protecting your cars, roofing and other items adds up to one giant lengthy homeowners maintenance list.  While storms are hopefully few and far between, there’s always the inevitable -- which means there should always be a plan in place! Below are a few things to add to your list of things to do or compile at home to prepare yourself for a winter storm this season.

Rock Salt

It’s important to have something that can melt ice when temperatures drop. The last way you want to start your morning is on your back because the stairs were icy and you lost your footing. Keeping a small container nearby to place near your entryway is a great idea and can save you from injury and potential buildup of ice in areas where it shouldn’t be.

Generators

Winter storms are deceiving and what looks like a white wonderland one minute can cause power outages and spoiled meats rather quickly afterwards. Try to consider keeping a generator handy and nearby when a storm is expected to hit your area. Enjoying the cold outdoors isn’t as fun when your home is just as cold!

Special Tools

For those in an area where snow can hit hard, it might make a bit more sense to have something built to handle the onslaught of precipitation and freezing temperatures. Roofline snow removers and special shovels are great items to have nearby when snow hits. Additionally, make sure that you’ve inspected your gutters before the storm, to rid them of any debris that may otherwise cause clogging, pooling of water, which can also lead to freezing, cracking, and flooding once it’s thawed out. 

Don’t let potential damage from a winter storm leave you out in the cold and your home/business struggling to recover. If you’ve fallen victim to the wrath of winter this year, make sure to partner yourself with a team that can make the situation right the first time. SERVPRO of Ronkonkoma has been assisting home and business owners recover from damage for years, and we’d love to help you!

Is My Home At Risk For Water Damage In The Winter?

With cold weather here, and here to stay for a while, it’s important to assess the risks associated with the weather and understand if your home is going to be at risk during this time. While a winter snowstorm might seem like the only time damage is possible, it couldn’t be farther from the truth. Here are a few things that might tell you if your home is at risk for damage.

Do You Have Foundation Issues?

It’s important to understand the structure of your home or business and if there are associated issues with the foundation or anything that provides a structural help to the home. Because moisture, snow and rain can get between the cracks, ice can form, freeze and then expand.  This is how it can pose a huge risk to your home.  

Roofing Issues Can Be Costly 

Having a roof over your head is possibly everyone’s goal -- however, when it begins to let water into your home, things can appear bleak -- and cold! When the layer of ice melts and begins to let water into your home, not only are you at risk for more roofing damage, but you’re now dealing with moisture, mold, and a hefty repair bill. Make sure to inspect your roof annually and make a call for a repair as soon a there’s any noticeable change that occurs. 

Are Your Windows Sealed?

It might seem trivial to think that your window seals could be causing moisture and water damage -- but it’s not that far fetched! As moisture gets between the window and the frame, it can quickly be brought into your home or business and sit on the window, walls, or even seep into other materials such as the carpet. To combat this from happening and attracting mold in your building, make sure your windows and doors are properly sealed and defending against excess moisture from creeping in. If not, invest in a dehumidifier which cuts down the moisture in the air and can safely protect you from any damage.

Experiencing damage from a winter storm can leave you out in the cold and your home or business full of damage. If you’ve fallen victim to the wrath of winter this year, make sure to partner yourself with a team that can make the situation right the first time. SERVPRO of Ronkonkoma has been assisting home and business owners recover from damage for years, and we’d love to help you!

Plumbing Mistakes that can lead to Water Damage

1/21/2020 (Permalink)

We’ve all seen quick fixes for plumbing issues online, or heard of DIY remedies from friends and family.  While these cures might work, they’re generally never long-term solutions to life’s plumbing problems. When something is acting up within your plumbing system, is it really an ideal solution to go at it yourself? We would venture to say it’s not a good idea.  Some of the smallest ‘fixes’ have the potential to lead to big problems, which can lead to extensive and expensive water damage. Make sure you’re not making any of the mistakes below.

Heating Up A Pipe

When your pipe freezes, there are certainly a few moments of panic. What if it bursts? Surely, this is the worst case scenario — and a leak is the last thing you need behind the walls. But if you’re going to take the classic ‘just heat it up’ advice, make sure you’re doing it correctly. If you’re using something to heat up the pipe, make sure your heat is not too hot. The quick change in temperature on something like copper can actually cause the pipe to expand rapidly and crack.

Disconnecting Fixtures

Sometimes, removing small fixtures is simple and is easy to do on your own. Repairs, however, can be a different story. Without properly disconnecting pipes and shutting off water lines, your quick DIY project can turn into a disaster in the blink of an eye. Make sure if you choose to take on a  project on yourself, that all of the preliminary boxes are checked off and you’re triple checking your own work to ensure that you’re not putting your home or business at risk.

Ignorance

Plain and simple, the ignorance of a potential issue is one of the worst mistakes to make in your home or business. If something seems like it’s not working the way it once was, get it checked out! There’s no harm in being proactive to a situation you’re unfamiliar with, and that type of tenacity just might save you hundreds, if not thousands in repair costs. However, keep an open mind and triple check to make sure that everything in your home is operating the way it should and is monitored closely.

If your home or business has experienced water damage this season, there’s only one company who can quickly and effectively restore the area. With SERVPRO of Ronkonkoma, we take pride in our fast and effective response team, dedicated to getting you back up and running as soon as possible. Contact us at (631) 585-0007 for rapid response and service!
