Are We Going to See A Hot Summer?

7/8/2019 (Permalink)

If the first week of July is any indication of what summer in the northeast will be like this year then we are in for a long hot summer. When looking at recent trends in the northeast one can estimate that there will be at least 20 days that will reach 90 degrees Fahrenheit. Last year 23 days in the northeast were over 90 degrees along the coastline, making it even hotter inland! And, after one of the wettest springs on record in the midwest, moisture in the ground will ensure it will be humid and uncomfortable for many of those hot days. These conditions will be perfect for mold growth in damp places and if left unchecked can lead to an expensive outbreak! If you plan to leave any of your properties unattended for an extended period of time contact our office today to learn more about renting our professional dehumidifiers and air purifiers. We can give you peace of mind that your school, business or home will be safe from the threat of mold while you are away for the summer!

We were out early on a Sunday morning visiting a commercial client for a monthly facility cleaning. This particular client requires we clean the premises outside of their regular business hours when they are closed and there are no employees in the building. Did you even know SERVPRO provides scheduled cleaning services? Most people are not aware of this service and assume we only handle disaster restoration clean-up after a flood, storm or fire. But our general cleaning services are second to none. Our technicians are professionally trained and have access to a vast array of SERVPRO equipment, cleaning solutions and techniques. If your business is in need of a weekly, monthly, annually or even one-time cleaning services we can help!

Retail Store Flood

Reaction-time cannot be underestimated when disaster strikes a retail establishment. At SERVPRO of Long Island City we strive to react and be onsite within the hour for most disasters. Recently we responded to a call from a retail store where flooding had occurred. Our team arrived on-site and immediately removed & stored all retail goods from the affected area saving the owners thousands in lost merchandise. Next the team began to contain the water damage to the already affected areas of the store to prevent further damage. Using the drying equipment at our disposal the crew was able to begin mitigation processes within 30 minutes of arrival. Once further damage was contained our repair crew began to take preventative measures to safeguard the structure from further flooding knowing another rain storm was due the following day. Once drying was complete our contracting team took over and began the repairs needed to fix the damage from the flood and to repair the building to prevent a future flood.

Hotel Lobby Flood

When disaster strikes a business or commercial property SERVPRO of Long Island City has scored high ranks with our clients, we understand the importance of ensuring a business or commercial is in operation as soon as possible. In many cases we are able to isolate the area where the disaster has struck and the business can remain in operation. Recently we were called to a disaster at a hotel where water from persistent rains flooded the lobby. Upon arrival our first goal was to clean and restore as much of the lobby as possible. We knew that by doing so we could allow the hotel to operate and service their customers as we continued to mitigate and dry the public areas of the business. Our team built temporary barriers to block the view of the equipment and the crew as the mitigation work was underway, 24/7 until the lobby was 100% recovered.

Serving Long Island City

Some of the most rewarding work we do is directly in our community. When we are called to a disaster in Long Island City we know that our every-step is on display to individuals we may end up seeing around the community many times over afterward and we must step-up our performance. A few years ago our sister franchise had been called to a summer home in Rhode Island on Atlantic Ave which had flooded after a winter storm. We were on the scene within the hour and began the process of mitigating and repairing the home. Little did we know the owner of the home was also a business owner in Queens, NY and his boatyard also suffered damage after the storm. Thanks to our Rhode Island crew and their professional approach in the beach home we were called into work on and mitigate the water damaged suffered in the warehouse and office building of the yard in Queens.
