Winter Storm Season In Oyster Bay Is Here, We Can Help

Snow along the a path to the beach. SERVPRO is available throughout Oyster Bay and Long Island to help you if winter weather damages your properties. Contact us today.

This week we are set to experience some colder weather and may see some snow accumulation to kick off the first week of the new year. As we head into the colder months of January and February it is important to remember that your local SERVPRO is available if your property suffers damage due to cold weather. 

Typically in our area, when we see long spells of cold weather, water supply pipes that are not well insulated can freeze and burst. If left unnoticed for a long period of time the damage to the home or commercial property can be catastrophic even requiring homeowners to move out temporarily while extensive repairs are underway. 

Another type of damage from winter weather can come from ice dams that typical start at night when water from snow melting on a roof top freezes and expands slightly opening a rooftop at the eves and allowing water damage to occur within the walls of the structure. If you see large icicles hanging from one particular area of your home or commercial property this may indicate an ice dam.

Our team is available 24/7 to help if your home or commercial property is damaged to winter weather. Call us now!

Be Prepared For Storms This Winter, SERVPRO Can Help

Car Driving On A Snowy Road SERVPRO is here to help when winter weather damages your home or business property. Available 24/7

It's that time of the year again. This season is jam-packed with special occasions, events, gatherings, holidays, and other activities. This season is full of warmth and joy. However, it is important to ensure that your warm fuzzy feelings are safe and secure.

It is almost impossible to live in a region that experiences heavy winter weather, so it is crucial to be prepared. Let's take a look at some things to remember as winter draws near, while fall is slowly disappearing.

Protect your Family

Intentional, clear and consistent communication is key to keeping your family safe. Make sure your family has an emergency plan to ensure everyone is prepared in case of an emergency. Practice the plan frequently and practice it regularly.

Make sure your vehicle is winter-proofed. Have your vehicle winter-proofed. Rotate or replace your tires if they are showing signs of wear. Get new windshield wipers!

Protect your home

Frrozen pipes could cause severe damage in already-dangerous deep freezing conditions. We are not going to lie when we tell you that this is something you do not want. To relieve pressure, let the water flow from your showerhead and faucets.

Check the heating system in your home, whether it is gas, electrical or other. You can make sure that your heating system is ready to withstand the winter storms. Getting it serviced early will help prevent an outage later.

You should ensure that your wood-burning furnace or fireplace is well ventilated and clean. Also, you must use safety precautions when lighting fires.

You can seal your windows and add insulation to your attic now to prevent cold air from blowing around.

Take care of your pets

Winter may be a time when your pets have to come in, even if they are used to being outside. You can provide a warm place for your pets to rest until the weather warms up.

If you have livestock, or animals that spend winter outdoors, ensure that they are provided with shelter and water that will not freeze.

Be on the lookout for flooding and melts

As they melt, snow and ice can cause deadly floods. These can pose serious dangers and should be closely monitored, from rooftops to local water bodies.

Allow local news and alerts to inform you about flood dangers in your area. Always leave these notifications on.

In the event of winter storms causing flooding or damage to your property, call SERVPRO immediately for quick, effective solutions.

Water Damage Repair Oyster Bay SERVPRO of Oyster Bay is Here to Help The Long Island Sound Community

Winter is coming and colder weather is on the horizon. You should inspect your commercial or residential property to see if there are any areas that need heating or insulation that can prevent freezing weather from damaging your property. This type of damage may cause thousands of dollars of damage depending on the size of your home or commercial property. It could also require several weeks (if not more!) of construction.

Check all areas of your property where water pipes run. Check pipes near exterior walls, basements, attics, and other unheated areas. Garages or pipes in colder parts of your property. To determine if the temperature inside the space is higher than outside, place an exterior thermometer.

These areas may need to be insulate or heated. These small steps can help prevent major disasters. Call our office 24 hours a day if you have questions!

Our technicians will have several tools at their disposal when mitigation begins.

  • Truck-Mount Pumps
  • Wet Vacuums

SERVPRO Will Assist with Your Residential Fire Damage

Candles can bring beauty and scent to your home. Homes can also be damaged by fire if candles are not kept in a safe place.

After leaving a candle in the room and blowing a piece of paper into it, a homeowner required assistance to put out the fire. Although firefighters quickly extinguished the fire, smoke damage was extensive.

Take Charred Items Out

The candle's contents were too damaged to be cleaned in the room, so they had to be removed. Without homeowner consent or an adjuster, the techs won't dispose of any items found in the room. This allows property owners to know the status of restoration work and ensures SERVPRO® is covered by their insurance.

Test Before You Clean

It is important to test any smoke residues in a room before you attempt to clean them. The amount of smoke residue will depend on the temperature of the fire and the items burned. So, both dry smoke and moist smoke may be present in the same room.

Techs use dry cleaning sponges to remove dried smoke from walls and other painted surfaces. To remove wet smoke from walls and other painted surfaces, solvents are required.

Bedroom Odor Control

It is essential to get rid of charred materials. This will reduce the stench of fire. When a fire is started, hot air expands and pushes the odorous smoke out of porous materials. Thermal fogging is one way to get rid of the odors.

Duct Inspection

The fire was contained to the bedroom, but the family used the HVAC. High potential for soot to get through the conduit work was there. SERVPRO® technicians cleaned the ducts to eliminate any lingering odors.

SERVPRO® returns properties that have been damaged by fire back to their original condition.
