Negotiating Glen Cove Water Damage Restoration

When commercial properties in Glen Cove suffer water damage, filing insurance claims and ensuring that insurers cover restoration costs can be quite complex. Successful negotiations between remediation firms and insurance companies are crucial to helping restoration efforts more smoothly and efficiently.

We diligently work to get your insurer to cover all emergency water damage services, including necessary water removal services, basement flooding cleanup projects, and water damage repairs.

  • Gaining a thorough understanding of insurance policies, including their coverage limits, deductibles, and specific requirements for water damage restoration. This enables us to present a well-informed case to insurance companies and negotiate based on policy provisions.
  • Professionally documenting all water event-related damage, with videos, photographs, and written descriptions, gives insurance adjusters clear evidence of what happened, and the scope of restoration required.
  • Maintaining open communication with your insurer and keeping detailed records of all emails, phone calls, and written correspondence with adjusters. Our negotiators build trust and streamline the reimbursement process by promptly responding to all inquiries/requests for information. Also, our records serve as evidence of our negotiations and can be referenced if any disputes arise.

Water Damage Repair Fixes Furnishings & Equipment

Construction in Glen Cove usually means enhanced living from improved roads and additional shopping centers. Sometimes, however, planning doesn't consider every possibility, resulting in unexpected flooding. If dirty water enters your business, our water damage repair experts can help reduce the impact your business endures.

When unexpected flooding affects your company in Glen Cove, you need water damage, repair technicians. SERVPRO's trained experts help local businesses in this and other kinds of emergencies. We can repair equipment, furnishings, inventory, or anything else harmed by invasive, dirty water.

Repairing is the most cost-effective way to manage your restoration process after such an event. Here are some of the benefits local businesses gain from choosing this approach:

  • Faster recovery
  • Enhanced customer relations
  • A more stable work environment

Our customers can rely on our extensive experience with similar situations. While flooding may be a new occurrence to them, we know the steps and measures, and their order, can reduce the impact immediately. Decreasing the effects water has on the interior of your business means it recovers faster and with fewer long-term changes that require adjustments and adaptations.

Current customers who see a favorite business endure a disaster often feel invested in that business's recovery and reopening. People prefer companies in their neighborhood to be open than permanently closed. SERVPRO repairs equipment and affected stock and ensures your furnishings are in sanitary, usable condition.

Flooding isn't the only source of invasive, unwanted water. Our repairs ensure safe conditions, free of trip hazards, compromised electrical systems, and other safety concerns. A leak can create just as much damage as a flood. Regardless of the source, you can rely on us to make any needed repairs.

Choosing Our Inspection and Water Damage Restoration

Large Loss recovery teams like ours must respond fast when water disasters occur in office buildings. We have multiple tools capable of managing effects on a grander scale, such as several inches of water across the busiest areas of the structure. 

How Did the Damage Occur?

Starting water damage restoration in Glen Cove offices means first identifying what caused these problems in the first place. Office settings have several plausible routes to this kind of threat, which can include:

  • Leaking pipes
  • Leaking HVAC
  • Broken fixtures
  • Flooding
  • Damaged sprinkler system

Containing Water Migration

Offices are often known for their wide-open layouts, which can be a challenge when this building floor is contending with migrating moisture. We must work fast to contain these disasters with physical barriers, extractors, drying tools, and other equipment in our inventory.

Can You Keep Your Doors Open?

It is important to consider how to keep your doors open to your customers after a loss. When you can isolate the cause of the water damage and contain its spread, it is feasible that portions of your business can continue to operate while cleanup gets underway. If you can limit the restoration area to a few offices or a part of your work floor, operations can continue during the recovery, even at a smaller capacity.

Services You Need Right Away

There are specific steps that are necessary to start as soon as possible that have the greatest impact on the functionality of your office building. One of these services is controlled demolition. When burst pipes or similar circumstances occur within structural cavities, there is little to slow the spread of this water beyond drywall in vertical wall systems and a drop ceiling assembly with its respective tiles. We can collect and discard damaged materials to allow direct access to the damaged plumbing to ensure its prompt repair. 

Water damage restoration for an office building requires fast action and the right tools to overcome widespread loss effects quickly. You can count on our Large Loss team to help when disasters strike. Call our SERVPRO of Glen Cove / Jericho team at (516) 671-1919.

Proper Dehumidification during Water Mitigation in Glen Cove Businesses

7/20/2022 (Permalink)

water dripping from ceiling Water damage? SERVPRO's IICRC trained team can come to the rescue!

SERVPRO Eases Water Restoration for Glen Cove

Most of the items in your Glen Cove office are made from diverse materials with different vulnerabilities to moisture. Some swell, stain, smell, or rust when kept in a high-moisture environment. Including a sound dehumidification plan in your water mitigation efforts is essential since it effectively removes moisture trapped in materials and the air.

Dehumidification can be a final step during water mitigation in Glen Cove properties, or you can incorporate it right from the beginning. The process works best with other procedures, such as enhanced evaporation by setting up air movers within the property. Our SERVPRO technicians help assess the dehumidification requirements for your property.

Crucial considerations for dehumidification:

  • The grains per pound rating of the equipment used
  • The dehumidification technology equipment uses
  • The temperature levels in the house

Dehumidification is a modification process that helps water mitigation by changing moisture physically and then transporting it away from the wet structure. Two primary technologies are used to facilitate this process. A device can use chemicals to draw in moisture from the air or use temperature changes by cooling the air to the dew point allowing the water to condense into a liquid. Devices that use chemical processes are known as desiccants, while those that rely on temperature changes are called refrigerants. 

GPP Rating

The level of vapor in the air is measured in grains per pound. On the other hand, the speed of vapor flow through materials is measured in grains per hour. Understanding the implications of GPP rating is essential when choosing dehumidification equipment for successful water mitigation. SERVPRO has IICRC-certified Structural Drying Technicians who readily understand these technical aspects, thus choosing the right equipment and balancing them with other restoration steps such as temperature control.

How heat affects water restoration:

  • Heat boosts the air's capacity to hold water
  • When cooled, air releases moisture leading to condensation
  • Heating wet materials break vapor barriers

SERVPRO of Glen Cove / Jericho expertly manages all aspects of water mitigation, dealing with any damage "Like it never even happened." Call us at (516) 671-1919.

After Fire Soot With advanced equipment, SERVPRO restores property to pre-damaged conditions, "Like it never even happened."

Fire Restoration for Glen Cove Business Owners

Fire damage can interrupt your Glen Cove business for weeks or even months. Fires impact every business element like the building, tools, supplies, products, and people. Taking the proper steps after a fire incident can help recoup costs and re-open your business on the right foot. SERVPRO ensures that smoke and soot cleaning is done on time so you can resume business operations as soon as possible.

Fire restoration professionals help Glen Cove business owners secure and move any salvageable valuables. Computers and other electronics or documents may be prone to further damage from the fire residues, so salvaging and documentation are essential steps. We work closely with your insurer to guide you in proceeding with the claim. The insurer might want to inspect the items, so we wait for their approval before we begin restoration.

Various Damages Fire Can Cause

  • Soiling from smoke and soot
  • Moisture or chemical damage by fire suppressors
  • Damaged finishes from charring

Cleaning Residue Stains

Smoke and soot damage escalates quickly, and if given time, it causes yellow stains on walls. The acidity in soot begins to tarnish or stain metal within hours. If no measures are taken in weeks, the soot permeating building materials leads to corrosion.

SERVPRO considers the different types of surfaces when cleaning soot from walls and ceilings. Some sections may require dry cleaning methods where we use a sponge to wipe. On the other hand, surfaces with oily soot residue respond effectively to wet cleaning methods with a high-alkaline detergent.

Methods of Cleaning Walls and Ceilings

  • Wet cleaning
  • Wiping with dry cleaning sponges
  • Peroxide active cleaning
  • HEPA vacuum cleaning

SERVPRO of Glen Cove / Jericho uses various methods to clean and deodorize surfaces and items damaged by smoke and soot during fire restoration. Call us at (516) 671-1919. We're Faster To Any Size Disaster.

Get Efficient Commercial Flood Damage Cleanup For Your Glen Cove Department Store

Department stores have a significant stronghold in American consumerism and are the anchor stores of shopping complexes and malls. They provide consumers with various services and products in a one-stop shopping format. Flash flooding can cause water to enter your department store. It can lead to significant financial losses if consumer goods such as furniture, clothing, home appliances, housewares, toys, hardware, and cosmetics, among others, get ruined.

The floodwater can also ruin the floors, walls, and other structures. If there is commercial flood damage in your Glen Cove department store, you need experienced restoration specialists to return the establishment to its previous condition safely and quickly. SERVPRO is a trusted leader in flood damage restoration. We take immediate action to minimize any negative impact on commercial property and the health of the people who work in it. We provide efficient flood cleanup services to make the destruction seem “Like it never even happened.” The steps we take to restore a commercial property include:

  • Assessing the damage
  • Our technicians walk through the premises with the business owner to inspect the damaged areas and prepare a scope of work for approval.
  • Writing a detailed flood remediation estimate.
  • After getting an approved scope of work, we write an estimate for the flood damage cleanup.

Water Extraction

If you approve the estimate, our experts can proceed with the water extraction process and removal of damp contents for disposal or salvaging. Our Water Damage Restoration Technicians (WRT) use portable or truck-mounted pumps to remove standing water. Floodwater can enter the basement of your department store quickly, and it could contain mud and other debris. We can remove the items in the basement that have not sustained damage, take them to the upper floors and then remove the sludge and floodwater.


Standing floodwater and flooded damp materials are breeding grounds for microorganisms like bacteria, viruses, and mold. These microorganisms can cause health problems to the people working in the department store long after the flooding incident. We use EPA-registered disinfectants to prevent microbial growth.

Drying of the Flooded Space

Our technicians set up a combination of air movers and dehumidifiers in the building to ensure that the entire structure dries appropriately. The machines must run continuously for several days. Our crew monitors and documents the drying conditions of a building regularly. We write readings for temperature, relative humidity, and moisture content and evaluate them to see if drying goals are reached.

Removing Odors

Floodwater can bring unpleasant odors into your department store, and they can affect the shopping experience of your customers. At SERVPRO, we use different strategies to deal with flood odors, including pairing agents and odor removal equipment such as air scrubbers and hydroxyl generators.

With many years of experience in flood damage restoration, the team at SERVPRO of Glen Cove / Jericho possesses the capacity and knowledge to complete challenging projects. Contact us at (516) 671-1919 for immediate help.

Does the Source Affect Fire Damage Restoration Processes in Glen Cove Properties?

2/16/2022 (Permalink)

After Soot in Commercial Kitchen Don’t let fire damage overwhelm you, call the professionals at SERVPRO of Glen Cove / Jericho.

Examining the Source in Glen Cove Properties Helps SERVPRO Resolve Fire Challenges

Although it may not seem so, a fire can start in any section of your business premises. Various things you use in your daily operations increase fire risk, including waste materials, solvents, and heat-generating objects such as machines. Apart from causing unexpected damage at your Glen Cove premises, different fire sources also influence the work you need to do to restore the premises.

In many cases, the fire source determines its intensity, thus influencing the fire damage restoration procedures undertaken in Glen Cove properties. Since fire can be contained in good time by the fire department or an internal suppression system, intensity is not always high. Other factors related to the source can still affect restoration. An experienced restorer like SERVPRO can help you address any challenges that arise.

Challenging Aspects Connected to the Fire Source Include:

  • Variations such as organic and synthetic residues
  • Heat levels which range from scorching to smoldering
  • Residue spread patterns

The combustion process affects materials to different levels. Incomplete combustion results in residues like soot. While soot appears as a standard black residue, its chemical properties differ depending on the burnt material. Therefore, if a fire is caused by malfunctioning electronics or other appliances made of plastics and other synthetic materials, the resulting soot is not the same as what would be produced by waste papers igniting. Soot from synthetic sources tends to be wet and smeary, thus difficult to clean.

Fires Are Hotter or Colder Than You Expect

To most people, a fire is just a fire. However, during restoration, the unique fire characteristics stand out and can impact the process. For instance, the temperatures involved as various materials ignite, affect the cleaning difficulty. Scorching temperatures result in turbulent air movements, forcing residues to collide with vertical surfaces like walls leading to splattering and penetration into the substrate. Such residues require a greater cleaning force. That is why our SERVPRO technicians use rotating brushes to agitate such surfaces. 

SERVPRO of Glen Cove / Jericho can conduct fire damage restoration addressing any challenging issue, “Like it never even happened.” Call us at (516) 671-1919.

How do SERVPRO Techs Combat Odors After the Smoke and Fire Damage to Glen Cove Homes?  

Successful elimination of odors after the fire and smoke damage to your Glen Cove home is contingent on the restorers using the right approach during deodorization. Therefore, it is critical to hire restorers like SERVPRO who have the experience, tools, and training to get the job done efficiently. 

Technicians at SERVPRO understand that combating odors after the fire and smoke damage to your Glen Cove home involves meticulous planning and spot-on execution. We use several deodorizing techniques and tools depending on the type of fire and the extent of the smoke damage. 

How Does Thermal Fogging Neutralize Odors During Smoke Remediation of Your Glen Cove Home? 

SERVPRO technicians use thermal fogging in your fire-damaged Glen Cove home to neutralize odors of smoke and soot particles that are lodged in tough-to-reach spots. The thermal fogger is equipment that generates a fog of a powerful deodorizing agent with the help of heat. 

The technicians can recreate conditions under which the smoke particles initially penetrated the surfaces using a thermal fogger, increasing the deodorization efficiency. Once the deodorizer reaches small cracks, pores, and fibers, it neutralizes the odor-causing particles. 

What are the Advantages of Thermal Fogging Over Other Deodorizing Methods? 

Thermal fogging offers several advantages over other deodorizing methods, including ultra-low volume (ULV) fogging. Some of the benefits include-

  • Produces deodorant particles as small as 0.5 microns enabling them to penetrate deeper
  • Removes odors from a variety of surfaces, including walls, floors, and fabric 
  • Faster than ULV fogging

Commercial Mold Damage Restoration In Glen Cove

SERVPRO Equipment and technician Call SERVPRO for mold remediation services day or night at (516) 671-1919.

Mold Damage Restoration Can Require Soda Blasting Procedures

If moisture ever stays inside your Glen Cove breakfast diner for too long, fungi can develop on any of your building materials or contents that contain organic materials. If organic substances such as paper or wood stay wet for longer than 48 hours, mold damage could occur inside your place of business. A fungus only needs excessive moisture, an organic food source, the correct temperatures, and time to form and grow.

Anytime moisture gets left in an area inside your diner, naturally present spores could activate and cause your building to become contaminated. During mold damage remediation in Glen Cove, our SERVPRO technicians can utilize various specialized techniques and equipment to remove all contamination. Once a fungus forms, it starts growing in all directions, and it starts to release reproductive spores into the air. The spores can then float around the interior of your breakfast diner and contaminate areas that were previously unaffected by moisture or mold.

Once fungi have developed and are visible, our SERVPRO team's first step is to contain the affected room or rooms so that spores cannot spread across your structure. Then, we remove the fungal contamination from any of the affected surfaces inside your business's building. Next, we can use chemicals to help eliminate spores so that mold cannot form anywhere else.

Soda Blasting for Mold Damage Remediation

In some situations, the fungus could have grown deep into an item, and scrubbing and scraping methods do not prove effective. In these more severe cases, we can implement soda blasting techniques. Soda blasting removes contamination by spraying the affected region with pressurized baking soda. The process is somewhat abrasive, but it can be proven to be more gentle than sanding or other more abrasive removal methods. The baking soda also has properties that help neutralize any foul odors present within the contaminated items.

When running a diner, we know that cleanliness is one of the keys to being successful. For professional assistance with restoration services at your place of business, call SERVPRO of Glen Cove / Jericho at (516) 671-1919 24/7. We can help you restore your company's building to the way it was before, "Like it never even happened."

  • Powerful water extractors and pumps allow us to rapidly pull up any standing water in your real estate office. 
  • Light wands to remove moisture from the carpets and the carpet padding beneath.
  • Moisture meters, sensors, and thermal imaging technology help us locate areas where hidden water may be lurking.
  • Industrial-grade antimicrobial agents that we apply to help thwart bacterial and microorganism growth known for causing foul, musty odors.

Many flooding events with significant water intrusion call for controlled demolition. SERVPRO handles all material removals and reconstruction to restore the interior of your office. With our qualified company in your corner, you save both time and money so that you and your team never miss a beat!

modern restaurant interior design Flooding can be overwhelming for restaurants, but our SERVPRO of Glen Cove / Jericho team can help 24/7 by calling (516) 671-1919.

Natural flooding can overwhelm floor drains in your Glen Cove restaurant, making it vital for our professionals to utilize extractors to remove standing water as fast as possible.

Flooding can be devastating to entire Glen Cove communities when creeks and streams rise above their banks following prolonged rainfall. With so many quick-service restaurants close to one another along the main strips through our city, unexpected flooding can find its way into these structures and require immediate attention. A fast response from competent professionals like our SERVPRO team ensures that more significant damages do not require a lengthy shutdown of the facilities.

With natural disasters, the floor drains and water diversion installations in your restaurant can become overwhelmed, leading to flood damage in Glen Cove kitchen areas. Resolving the compromised drain and plumbing issues first requires removing any standing floodwater in the restaurant with several tools and devices.

Trash Pumps – Gas-powered extraction devices capable of moving solids and debris along with the water are suitable implements for natural flooding in your restaurant. These are portable and can get moved to different areas of the building as required.

Extractor Trucks – Our SERVPRO Green Fleet features extractor trucks capable of removing water at a powerful 300 psi. These removal tools can also remove solids and debris. The pumps get powered from the engine of the truck.

Specialty Wands – Wet vacuums are an everyday staple of extraction and can support multiple attachments and specialty wands to help with the final touches on floodwater removal. Squeegee wands on the tile floors of your kitchen area can be an excellent example.

How Can Water Diversion Implements Get Repaired After Flooding?

Assessing the damage to the drain and potential clogs can ensure that repairs happen if necessary. With contractors available on our roster, we can reinstall drains or repair these diversion implements as necessary.

Flooding can be overwhelming for restaurants, but our SERVPRO of Glen Cove / Jericho team can help 24/7 by calling (516) 671-1919.

How Can I Clean Up My Restaurant After an Accidental Sprinkler Discharge?

SERVPRO Techs Can Restore Glen Cove Eateries with Commercial-Grade Water Damage Repair Tools

Accidental sprinkler charges are more common than most Glen Cove business owners might expect. The current industry standard for sprinkler heads is a failure rate of 1 in 16,000,000. However, when a failure does occur, just one or two sprinkler heads, each discharging several gallons of water per minute, can leave businesses with a substantial cleanup job on their hands.

SERVPRO can respond to Glen Cove businesses requiring water damage repair in as little as several hours after the initial contact.

Preventing Accidental Sprinkler Discharges

  • Have the plumbing for your sprinkler heads inspected regularly. Corrosion in pipes is one of the major causes of accidental discharges. Many businesses mitigate this by filling pipes with nitrogen to prevent oxygen from deteriorating the plumbing when it is dry.
  • Consider installing sprinkler head guards to minimize safety concerns from mechanical failures. These devices are most effective in commercial environments with high rates of foot traffic, which can increase impact risk.
  • Prevent freezing pipes from building pressure in your sprinkler system by adding an approved antifreeze solution, insulating plumbing, or making use of electric heat tracing.

SERVPRO’s Structural Drying Process

After extracting water from your commercial property with such tools as rovers and portable extractors, SERVPRO technicians prepare the affected space for drying with centrifugal air movers and dehumidifiers.

Air movers are typically placed every 10 to 16 linear feet along the length of the affected space, but positioning can vary based on the material being dried. For walls, air movers are placed at 45-degree angles to pull moisture into the air for dehumidifiers to absorb and replace with warm, dry air.

SERVPRO of Glen Cove / Jericho serves local businesses with cleanup and restoration services that make your business look, “Like it never even happened.” Call (516) 671-1919 to get the services you need at any time of the day or night.

How Do I Protect My Merchandise?

SERVPRO Has Offsite Secure Storage for Your Merchandise

When dealing with water damage restoration at your Glen Cove business, you may need to remove your merchandise to an offsite facility for a couple of reasons. First, you want to keep the items dry and remove the possibility of them absorbing moisture from the raised humidity levels in the shop.

When taking items out of your shop, our specialists inventory each item so that you can keep track of your merchandise each step of the way.

What Would Happen if I Try to Dry My Store with Only Ventilation and Box Fans?

  • The drying process would be much slower without proper equipment or technique.
  • Moisture may remain, exposing your merchandise to humidity that can damage the gifts you sell.
  • Unpleasant odors may develop, making your business a less desirable gift-buying destination. 

What Type of Equipment Does SERVPRO Technicians Use to Dry My Floors and Reduce Humidity?

  • Air movers direct air across the floor to assist in evaporation of moisture. 
  • Technicians use dehumidifiers to pull moisture out of the air.
  • Air scrubbers to purify the air and remove odors.

There is Flood Damage in My Glen Cove Retail Store, What Should I Do?

Flooded Floor From Water Leak Do not let flood damage affect your revenue.

Call SERVPRO to Deal With the Commercial Flood Damage in Your Glen Cove Store

Flood damage in a retail store can be devastating. Apart from ruining your stock, every day, your retail store remains closed because of the flooding can affect your finances. Fortunately, you can call SERVPRO to help you clean up and restore it.

Our flood restoration services can also help you preserve the structural integrity of your building. Our services include:

    •    Project management
    •    Water extraction

    •    Drying

Our response team is always available, including during holidays or late at night. Since we understand the impact that flooding can cause in a retail business, we offer a timely response to emergency calls.

What are the vital steps you take to restore business premises?
Water removal is an essential step we take when restoring a property. We work fast to prevent expensive repairs. Some of the equipment we can use to remove water include:

    •    Electric submersible pumps
    •    Wet/dry vacuums
    •    Self-priming trash pumps
    •    High-pressure pumps

We choose the right extraction tools based on how much water is in a property and if it is mixed with solids. For instance, a self-priming trash pump is useful when removing water with solids from a property.

How can you dry my store effectively?
Moisture in the air and on surfaces can affect the health of your employees and customers. We can use structural cavity drying equipment to remove the moisture in your retail store. The equipment allows our technicians to direct airflow into wall cavities and hard to reach areas to replace the moist air with dry, warm air. This increases the temperature on the surfaces leading to a high rate of evaporation. Before we leave a business facility, we ensure that the client is satisfied.

Do not let flood damage affect your revenue. SERVPRO of Glen Cove / Jericho can handle the destruction to make it “Like it never even happened.” Talk to us today at (516) 671-1919.

Commercial Water Damage Glen Cove – Plumbing Break

A commercial client stands to lose more than just the damage caused by a water leak when a water line breaks. Their business has to close until the water is removed, everything is dried, and repairs are made. The business may have to lay off employees, and customers cannot visit the site until everything vis returned to normal. A fast response by water removal specialists and construction repair contractors can reduce the loss significantly.

That's why SERVPRO provides commercial water damage services in Glen Cove and surrounding areas. We know how important it is to get to the job site and begin recovery to limit the time your business is offline. We are available on a 24 /7 day a week basis and usually can be onsite in less than 4 hours. A water line joint that blows out inside a wall can deliver hundreds of gallons of water in a few.

What Moisture Mitigation Work Needs to be Completed

One of the first steps SERVPRO takes when the team arrives onsite is to assess the situation, remove the source of the water damage, and there are no electrical or other hazards that might be dangerous to employees and our team members. If the water leak is inside a wall, which many are, we can remove the drywall to expose the water pipe for repairs.

Water can spread quickly, and in many cases, water seeps behind baseboards, into walls, under carpeting, and into the underpad. If we do not remove all sources of moisture, our experience tells us that these areas can be a future source of microbial growth and odors. If the carpet begins to delaminate (the backing separates from the carpet fibers), the carpet must be replaced.

We may need to remove baseboards and make a one-foot flood cut in the drywall, especially near the water leak, to gain access to water and moisture inside the walls. We remove all of the moisture using directed air movers to evaporate the moisture and dehumidifiers to remove the humidity. Once the commercial space is dry, contractors can begin work to replace the drywall, baseboards, and install new carpeting and underpad.

Call SERVPRO of Glen Cove / Jericho at (516) 671-1919 for 24/7 service. We proudly serve East Norwich, Oyster Bay, and surrounding areas. We're Faster To Any Size Disaster.

Commercial Flood Damage can Ruin Structure and Merchandise in a Glen Head Bookstore

10/14/2019 (Permalink)

A stack of books with an open book at the top of the stack. We can help you save the pages in your Glen Head flood damage.

SERVPRO can help with even the most particular items such as books in your Glen Head flood damage.

In spite of the Internet, many people in Glen Head still love to find and read a good book. Often, finding a classic in print helps share a beloved story with a child, which often reduces reading problems in school. Both new and used bookstores carry thousands of items in their inventories, along with other items.

Bookstore owners in Glen Head fighting commercial flood damage after a storm often need professional restoration experts to obtain the best possible outcome. Water of any kind and from any source is a book's worst enemy. Swollen bindings and warped covers give a good indication of the pages' condition – wavy and curled, discolored, and in some cases, tinted from the dyes in a cloth or leather cover.

Just as without books, there is no bookstore, the structure needs restoring to preloss condition, also. Our building services department carries out many tasks needed during the restoration of a business. Boarding up windows to protect inventory and furnishings from looters and tarps over the roof can keep openings from letting in pests and precipitation. They also help with restoring books and other documents, as well as fine art. SERVPRO can handle almost any type of flood damage that happens to your business.

Our goal is to shorten the time required for mitigation, restoration, and remediation and get your business back to operational status. Lyophilization is a method that involves freezing books and other paper-containing materials to dry them with little damage. 

Because lyophilization must begin without delay, we highly recommend that bookstore owners create a READY Profile with SERVPRO. A Profile saves time by allowing us to access information about your business during a crisis.

Extracting silt and water involves both pumps and buckets. SERVPRO works in teams keeping efficiency high, so the work gets completed as quickly as possible. Elevating bare shelves and bookcases helps them dry fast because air currents can travel around them evenly. Wiping condensation off rarely needs to happen because our desiccant machines strip the air of water vapor. 

We also provide odor control measures that eliminate odors caused by microorganisms, soils, and other debris. We use hydroxyl generators to kill airborne microbes and to eliminate any odor-causing particles. We can run these generators even when the bookstore is occupied, unlike ozone generators. It also causes no changes or bleeding of colors in fabrics.

SERVPRO of Glen Cove / Jericho understands how unexpected store closings can harm your bookstore in Oyster Bay. We also serve Upper Brookville and East Norwich when flood damage and other weather events threaten your company. Call (516) 671-1919, day or night, 365 days a year, because We're Faster To Any Size Disaster and always arrive fully prepared. We can also give you more information about the READY Profile and help you complete yours if needed.
