SERVPRO Provides Emergency Mitigation and Restoration Services

  • Mitigation efforts are meant to prevent further damage and loss from occurring due to the existing threat, thus increasing the overall amount of work that needs to be done during the restoration itself.
  • Restoration is performed on items that could not be saved by mitigation efforts, and items that were damaged before the restoration company arrived. This step is often a longer process and may involve the complete replacement of floors, roofs, walls, and other portions of your business that have been too damaged to save.
  • Both are necessary to get your home or business back in order after a flood, or other disaster event, and should be performed by a professional disaster restoration company.

What Should I Do When I Notice a Water Loss?  

Your Water Damage event might not be entirely avoidable, so you need to know what to do when you notice that a problem has occurred and continues to threaten the building. This immediate action can help better to protect some of the building's potentially compromised areas and can reduce irreparable damage to essential contents and equipment. Some of the initial steps that you can take in the earliest stages of water loss include: 

  • Move Important Documentation – One of the most critical steps that your staff can take when water loss first begins is to gather sensitive documentation and records and move them to a safe location. Migrating water can be a destructive force for these hard copies. 
  • Notify Our Restoration Professionals – Getting restoration professionals like our SERVPRO team moving on your disaster is also an essential initial step to take. We have staffed emergency lines running 24/7, so you can talk to a real person about the situation and pass helpful information along to our mobilizing technicians.  
  • Stay Out of the Damaged Space – Once water losses have spread into the main areas of the building, it is wise to keep yourself and your staff out of these areas altogether. Not only does excessive foot traffic make restoration more challenging, but with worsening water damage, these individuals could face potential health hazards like shock or slips.  

Our SERVPRO Storm Damage Property Restoration Team has the experience and resources to handle your weather-related water property damage quickly and professionally. We know what comes next after your property suffers a disaster storm water damage and we are prepared 24-7 with Emergency help to repair your home or business when you need us!

An active 2021 Atlantic Hurricane season expected - SERVPRO is READY to Help after any size disaster

5/26/2021 (Permalink)

hurricane season sign with stormy sky and lightening Our storm damage mitigation team will work with you to make any emergency repairs needed and explain the rest of your recovery process.

After the record-breaking Atlantic hurricane season last year, it appears likely that 2021 is in for the sixth consecutive above-average year. The 2020 Atlantic hurricane season was the most active and the fifth costliest Atlantic hurricane season on record. First predictions have been released, and the message is straightforward: Yet another very active hurricane season is expected in 2021. With a quite concerning notice that also an above-average probability of hurricane landfalls along the US coastline and in the Caribbean is likely.

The official Atlantic hurricane season runs from June 1st through November 30th. The Atlantic basin includes the entire Atlantic Ocean, the Gulf of Mexico, and the Caribbean Sea. The long-term average (taken over the last 70 years – between 1951 and 2019) of named storms is 11. The short-term average (taken over the last 15 years – between 1995 and 2019) is 14 named storms.

When a hurricane makes landfall, the force of hurricane strength winds can destroy buildings, topple trees, bring down power lines, and blow vehicles off roads. When flying debris, such as signs, roofing material, building siding, and small items left outside, is added to the mix, the potential for building damage is even greater. When a storm hits your Suffolk County home or business, you need help immediately, SERVPRO of Medford is here to help with property restoration and repairs. Our team of storm and water damage specialists get started promptly to maximize recovery and reverse storm damage. 

Hurricane winds and rain can bring a massive amount of damage to a community. Hurricane winds impact homes and other buildings in two different ways: 1) differential pressures act on the building envelope, which includes roofs and walls (and their associated components), and 2) wind-borne debris may strike a building, with windows and doors the most susceptible to impact. Additionally, downed trees and power lines, being blown-down onto a building, is another way hurricanes can cause damage to structures. Rainwater damage to a building’s interior will normally result after damage to the building envelope has occurred.

Spring and Summer backyard barbeque safety tips to avoid property damage

5/20/2021 (Permalink)

open flames from backyard grill Simple precautions can help your family enjoy a safe grilling season

SERVPRO is always here to help, with years of experience and commitment to property damage cleanup and restoration throughout Suffolk County. Barbeque safety is a key component to avoid seasonal fire damage to your property and injury.

According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), U.S. fire departments respond to an average of 8,900 home fires involving grills, hibachis, or barbecues every year. Unfortunately, almost all these fires can be prevented. Fortunately, with some simple precautions, your family can enjoy a safe grilling season.

Backyard Grilling Safety Tips to Avoid Fire Damage

Monitor and control the fire - Never leave the grill unattended. Avoid flare ups during cooking by keeping your grill clean, scraping the grates, and cleaning the trays to remove grease and fat buildup each time you use the grill. Keep a spray bottle of water handy incase of a small flare-up.

Position your grill in a safe place - choose a location for your grill that open and well ventilated, at least 10 ft away from structures including your home, deck railing, eaves, and low hanging branches.

Keep the grill out of a high-traffic area - Be sure to warn adults and children alike of a hot grill. The surface of a grill can heat up to dangerously high temperatures – certainly hot enough to cause serious burns. Keep kids and pets at least 3ft away from the grill, even a grill that's turned off and cooling down can cause serious burns.

Have a plan to put out a fire - Have the correct type of fire extinguisher within reach and, if you are using a gas grill, make sure you know where the emergency cut-off is before you start cooking. Keep matches, lighters, and combustible liquids out of reach and sight of children.

SERVPRO is a trusted leader in the property restoration industry; our team is ready to respond to your emergency property fire damage event, quickly and effectively with unparalleled training and equipment. Giving you peace of mind that your property is being cleaned and restored by caring and competent restoration professionals.

Often during a fire restoration, many recovery operations need to happen simultaneously, some of our crew will work on water extraction and demolition, while others will inventory and pack up items to move to another location to help prevent further property damage from exposure to contaminated areas. Smoke and soot particles are small and can get deep inside building materials, furniture, and other porous items. HEPA filters help our industrial strength air scrubbers and vacuums capture soot, purify the air, and neutralize odors. Our SERVPRO of Medford location is fortunate to offer restoration and rebuilding services following a property disaster from fire, water, or mold. Using our highly qualified construction team will help keep your recovery process moving steady and hassle free, often it can also minimize costs and completion time.

We specialize in Basement Water Removal and Damage Restoration

4/19/2021 (Permalink)

A Basement is a wonderful asset to your Long Island home or business, it can provide additional storage or living space to a crowded property. As unfortunate as it may be, basements are prone to flooding and water damage concerns, their location at the lowest level of a building and usually underground makes them a target – water always runs from high to low ground. Whether the excess water comes from a burst pipe, backed-up sewer line, failed sump pump, malfunctioning water-using appliance, or heavy rainfall, basement water damage is common and causes plenty of concerns to an unfortunate property owner. The first 48 hours are considered the most important time period to react, as it is crucial to preventing further damage, in addition to contributing to structural and foundation problems, basement water damage can destroy your personal belongings and interior finishes and it also has the power to create the perfect environment for toxic mold growth.

Dry everything out as quickly as possible

When a finished/unfinished basement experiences significant water damage, timing is everything. The sooner you begin the disaster recovery process, the more likely you will be able to restore the condition of your possessions and minimize building materials from becoming completely destroyed. A professional restoration company can help expedite this process. 

Actions that can minimize water damage to your basement:

  1. Extraction: The first step toward restoring your building to its pre-flood condition is removing the standing water from the affected area. Our teams use wet vacuums and pumps to move large quantities of water to a specific location. Starting the process with this kind of removal is more efficient, and it allows us to get more liquid out of your carpets and the cushioning below.
  2. Evaporation: Next, we’ll set up high-velocity airflow equipment to evaporate any remaining moisture. Units designed for structural drying are more energy-efficient and move a larger volume of air in less time.
  3. Dehumidification: As water evaporates from furniture, carpet and building materials, that vapor turns into humidity. Left in the air, water vapor seeps back into absorbent furniture, clothing and other materials. Water damage dehumidifiers remove moisture, which protects your property from future damage and prevents mold growth.
  4. Temperature control: Cool air hinders the evaporation process. Warm air — 70 to 90 degrees Fahrenheit — is ideal for completely drying your building’s structure. A thorough drying process is essential for preventing mold growth and other complications that come from residual moisture.

Our specialized equipment and highly trained staff has the scope of services to handle your property restoration needs from start to finish. We understand you may not have all the answers, calling our team connects you to professionals that can provide the answers to your restoration concerns and tailor a solution to repair your home or business, “Like it never even happened.”

Inspecting your property for seasonal damage can help avoid storm damage and mounting repair costs

Springtime is here and it’s time to open the windows and get outdoors - use the sunshine and warmer weather to inspect for seasonal property damage. Winter can be hard on your property with frigid temperatures and snow and ice. The effects of winter are especially evident to the exterior of our homes and buildings, it’s important to get any damage repaired quickly, before Spring has the chance to storm. 

Clean and Inspect the Exterior and Landscaping

While sprucing your yard, take the time to clear out overgrown bushes, dead plants, watering cans, garden tools and other items cluttering your landscape. Messy outdoor spaces and exterior structural systems like your roof and gutters can often lead to property damage, including slow water leaks or poor ventilation, cleaning up your surroundings will prevent accidents and increase the safety and security of your property.

  • Examine the roof
    Winter storms can take a toll on your roof, so be sure to inspect it thoroughly once spring rolls around. Look for things like missing, buckled, or otherwise damaged shingles, roof damage can lead to water and mold damage. Call a licensed and insured roofing expert to perform repairs, if you experience water intrusion or see visible signs of mold give SERVPRO a call for help.
  • Check and clean gutters and downspout
    Gutters and downspouts divert rainwater away from your roof and foundation, which is especially important when seasonal showers begin. Make sure all gutters are secure and unimpeded by debris. If your gutters seem damaged from the winter weather, make sure to replace them quickly.
  • Exterior walls
    A thorough inspection of the exterior walls will help to identify trouble spots. Paint is your house’s first defense, it works as an added layer of protection from the elements, helping to keep your home safe from weather damage, and insects.
  • Check foundation and walkways
    Fix and fill cracks in your foundation, porch and walkways, fluctuating temperatures and water can cause your foundation, porch or walkways to crack during the winter months. Reduce the opportunity for water damage by filling these cracks as soon as possible to prevent structural damage.
  • Check outdoor faucets and plumbing
    Now that spring is here, you’ll want to get started on gardening. If you turned outdoor faucets off and winterized pool plumbing to prevent frozen pipes in the winter, open them back up and check that they are all working properly.
  • Trim tree and shrub overgrowth
    Give the plants and trees on your property a once over, make sure to trim them, especially if there is a danger that they could fall on your home or car.

You can't control the increase of allergens in the spring air, but you can improve the air quality in your Long Island commercial or residential property, bolstering your fight against allergy symptoms? HVAC units, air ducts, registers, upholstery, carpets and flooring can hold much more dust, dirt and pollen than you would think. Scheduling periodic professional cleaning and odor removal services with our SERVPRO cleaning crews during spring can reduce allergens in your home or business and assure healthy air quality throughout your property. SERVPRO professional cleaning services can help minimize indoor allergens and alleviate your seasonal allergy symptoms and improve the overall indoor air quality of your home or business.

  • Air Duct and Register Cleaning
  • Intensive Carpet & Floor Cleaning
  • Odor Removal & Refresh

HVAC Unit Cleaning, Air Duct and Vent Cleaning

HVAC systems are often the biggest culprit in poor indoor air quality and a leading cause in increased allergy symptoms. The air inside your Suffolk Long Island home/business is full of tiny particles like dust, pollen and debris. When your furnace or air conditioner draws air, it also pulls in airborne particles. Over time, these contaminants can build up inside the ducts, reducing airflow and re-circulating allergens throughout your living/working space. Keeping dust, pollen, pet dander, and other irritants out of the air you breathe involves more than changing the air filter, proper HVAC unit and air duct maintenance is essential to reducing allergens inside your commercial or residential property and improve air quality. Our trained professionals at SERVPRO of Medford use commercial-grade, duct-cleaning equipment, brushes, and air whips, that remove dust and debris trapped inside your duct system and leave your property with optimal indoor air quality.

Intensive Upholstery, Carpet and Floor Cleaning

Scheduling a deep cleaning every 12-18 months by an IICRC trained SERVPRO professional will renew the look of your upholstery, carpet and flooring by removing the deepest dirt and debris. SERVPRO of Medford utilizes the best technology and highest-quality equipment that effectively removes dust, pollen and other allergens to keep your home or business allergen free and your carpets and flooring looking like new. Our professional cleaning will address moderate and heavy soil conditions in your carpets, dirt builds up in layers, and when a carpet looks dirty you are only seeing the dirt at the tips of the fibers. More dirt is hiding below the surface down near the base of the pile, causing damage to the carpet.

Odor Removal

Rely on SERVPRO technicians to have the expertise to effectively deodorize your home/business. Take advantage of our residential and commercial cleaning services to remove unwanted odors. Our Suffolk County SERVPRO crews have the training and equipment to identify and eliminate these offensive odors. Our experienced technicians have access to specialized odor removal products and equipment capable of penetrating surfaces to neutralize odors and help restore your home or business to a safe, healthy, and fresh environment.

SERVPRO is here to help minimize seasonal allergens with professional cleaning services

As spring allergy season approaches, our professional cleaning services can improve your health by reducing allergens in your property. Many American adults and children suffer from asthma or allergic rhinitis, or hay fever, the symptoms of both can be triggered by dust mites, mold, and other allergens often found in air ducts. Allergies, according to the CDC, are the 6th leading cause of chronic illness in the U.S.

Benefits of Air Duct & HVAC Cleaning
Like furnaces and air conditioners, air ducts require proper cleaning and maintenance to perform at their best. Keeping ducts free of dust and debris can also help reduce your energy bill and improve air quality in your home/business. More frequent duct cleaning is recommended if you have indoor pets or are sensitive to indoor air quality issues for example you suffer from asthma. You should also have your ducts cleaned if you have recently renovated your home or business, as this will increase the amount of dust in your forced air system. It’s also recommended to have your HVAC system and air ducts cleaned and services following a property damage event.

Having your ducts cleaned can save you money in the long run, and create a better environment for your family, friends, employees, and your customers. Restore energy efficiency over time and reduce the possibility of microbial growth with ventilation cleaning services from SERVPRO of Medford.

Contaminants That Are Distributed Through Your Ducts

When considering a duct cleaning service, it is important to realize that your HVAC system is responsible for air circulation in your home. Some of the things that can cause irritation are:

  • Pollen – Pollen is the number one cause of airborne allergies and your air duct system distributes it throughout your home if left uncleaned. Pollen is brought into your home on your clothes or through open doors and windows. Any pollen that makes it through your vent filters will simply be re-distributed by your HVAC, causing major problems for allergy sufferers.
  • Dust Mites– Keeping your home dust-free is impossible if your HVAC is constantly spewing dust that has built up in your ducts. Dust mites are one of the most impactful irritants for allergy sufferers.
  • Mold and Mildew– If moisture happens to enter your duct system, it can lead to mold and mildew development. If your ducts are moldy, it can spread spores throughout your property.
  • Pet Dander– While we all love our pets, we don’t love the dander that spreads from their skin. Cleaning the dust with a duct cleaning service will help to prevent the redistribution of these contaminants by your HVAC.


DIY CLEANING TIPS to Help You Control Indoor Allergens and Improve Indoor Air Quality
The best way to improve your air quality is to get rid of the sources of allergens and irritants from your home or business. Take measures to avoid and reduce your contact with allergens. Also increase the flow of outdoor air into your home and reduce humidity as much as possible.
When you have environmental allergies, it can be hard to bring yourself to open a window, much less stir up dust, dirt, debris or pollen while cleaning your home or business.

Here are cleaning tips you may want to add to your regular routine to reduce indoor allergens

  • Reducing dust-collecting clutter
  • Regularly vacuuming carpeted floors with a double-bag or HEPA filter vacuum
  • Dusting blinds and window treatments bi-weekly
  • Regularly washing blankets and throw rugs
  • Washing all bed linens in hot water every week
  • Keeping counters and other hard surfaces clean and dry
  • Getting all water damage restored quickly


However, duct cleaning is not always necessary. Our technicians will make recommendations about the best way to address any indoor air quality concerns. This can save you money and provide peace of mind on the health of your commercial or residential HVAC system.

Visual clues, like signs of mold and excessive dust around the air vents, can point to a need for cleaning. Otherwise, these additional concerns can indicate that your property could benefit from a professional cleaning.

  • Has your property had a routine cleaning in the last 6-10 years, or sooner if you suffer from allergies or own pets.
  • Is your property collecting dust even after you have done a regular cleaning?
  • Do you notice allergy symptoms or asthma flareups when you turn on your heating/cooling system?

If indoor allergens are causing your seasonal allergies to flare up, a professional duct cleaning can remove irritants and improve overall air quality. A professional cleaning has many benefits to your property including reducing humidity and odors, our professionals are trained technicians, with state-of-the-art equipment and unique knowledge and experience. They will pay careful attention to the details that matter most when cleaning and restoring your property to a healthy work or living environment.

Spring is the season for volatile weather, SERVPRO is prepare to help restore your property after Spring storm damage

3/18/2021 (Permalink)

Spring is notorious for producing a broad range of extreme weather, including major snowstorms, severe thunderstorms, flooding, big temperature changes and high winds. Temperatures can swing back and forth between balmy and frigid. Sunny days may be followed by a week of stormy weather. That temperature contrast fuels a strong jet stream, and in turn, highly variable weather conditions.

Spring is the time of year when many things change—including the weather. Spring storms can be unpredictable, we can't stop spring showers, but our team is ready to provide restoration and repairs to your home or business should it suffer from Spring thunderstorms, severe winds, flooding or other property damage disasters. There are a variety of potential property damages that you may experience. These include:

  • Roof or structural damage to your walls from a fallen tree or high winds
  • Broken windows from hail storms or objects thrown by heavy wind
  • Lightning strikes, which could lead to a fire
  • Water damage caused by loose or damaged shingles, clogged gutters, or leaking roofs
  • Flooding in your basement or home
  • Animal infestations caused by critters looking for shelter during the storm

Our professionals first assess the severity of the situation and determine the full extent of the storm, flooding or additional water damage. Restoring your home or business quickly, takes specialized equipment and highly skilled IICRC professionals. Our team closely inspects the flooded or other water damaged areas; measuring the moisture content, humidity and temperature to assess the full extent of the damage. It is important to note that storm property damage emergencies are rarely mild enough to not require some form of intervention and work by our experienced technicians. Some conditions that could encourage a prompt call to our SERVPRO team are:

Standing Water – Pooling water in a damaged area can be destructive to many of the materials. Wood and sheetrock exposed to standing water can quickly absorb this water and allow for a much more rapid deterioration of the construction element.

Migrating Water – You might not always know how widespread water loss effects can be, but if water has moved beyond the surface of materials, you need the sophisticated tools of our team to identify moisture pockets and dampness beyond what the eye can see.

Hidden Damages – In the same way that water can migrate throughout your apartment, damages can exist and persist out of sight without discovery tools and positive pressure drying systems getting used.

When water damage occurs in your home or business, knowing what to do will save precious time and ultimately minimize losses to your property and building contents. SERVPRO of Medford professionals have extensive experience repairing and restoring catastrophic water damage to countless locals in our Suffolk County community. Our technicians understand that unattended water damage continues to cause harm to your property over time.
