What to Do:

  • Stay out of affected areas.
  • Turn off the HVAC system and fans.
  • Contact SERVPRO of New Hyde Park/Mineola for mold remediation services.

What Not to Do:

  • Don’t touch or disturb the mold.

Commercial Carpet Cleaning

6/7/2018 (Permalink)

Commercial carpet cleaning for your office carpets is most likely one of those things on your list you'd like to avoid. But there are at least three important reasons why you should get the carpet in your office or place of business cleaned on a regular basis.

Reason 1. It Prevents Mold Formation – You may not realize it, but your carpet is actually a great home for mold. Mold can lead to your carpet smelling and looking older than it should, and in some cases mold can even be dangerous to the health of you, your employees or customers. 

Reason 2. It Gets Rid of Bugs – Much like mold, bugs love the warmth that carpets can hold. And with bugs in your carpet, they can begin to snack on the fiber leaving a lower quality carpet - in looks and longevity.

Reason 3. It Helps Maintain Your Investment – Over time your carpet will begin to look worn out and old. The more sun and foot traffic it gets, the faster this process will begin to happen. Keeping them cleaned twice a year will extend the life of the carpet.

A consistent carpet cleaning routine will help stop mold and bugs from calling your carpet home, and will help your carpet look fresh and clean longer. We offer discounts for regularly scheduled maintenance cleaning and for new customers.

So give us a call (516)742-1008 We have the people and the tools that you need to help keep your carpet in great shape.

Biohazard Dangers in a Hoarding Situation

6/7/2018 (Permalink)

Garbage, Trash and Debris

Perhaps the most common form of biohazard hoarding is garbage and trash.  When garbage is hoarded instead of being properly disposed of, many biological threats can present themselves within the home.  Remnants of spoiled or rotted food can develop a variety of bacterial and pathogenic threats to people living in a hoarded home.  Infection and allergic reactions could cause severe illness and even death if garbage is left unattended for long periods of time.

Also, the presence of garbage attracts vermin, rodents, and wild animals and insects.  All of these creatures have the potential of destroying property as well as carry bacterial, allergenic, and even viral infections of their own with them.

We have the experience and certifications necessary to properly, efficiently, and legally dispose of biohazard materials.

Dirty water is filled with all kinds of deadly substances

Water Damage Dirty water is filled with all kinds of deadly substances Bathroom backup

Excess moisture is bad enough, but when a home is flooded or hit with a plumbing disaster the situation can quickly get out of hand. Floods, sewage back flows, and other sources of contaminated fluid usually cause the worst damage. Dirty water is filled with all kinds of deadly substances, ranging from chemical residues to animal feces to parasites. Bacteria, viruses and fungi grow explosively in contaminated fluid, and severe health risks, like salmonella and hepatitis, are common in flood waters. In addition to surveying the home for structural problems, we will dry the home quickly and apply antibacterial, antiviral, and anti fungal agents to all surfaces that had contact with the water. This ensures the family can return to a safe home, and not one harboring a collection of deadly pathogens. We can help. Call us today.

Mold of any kind is considered a problem

5/21/2018 (Permalink)

When you find mold in  your home it's cause for concern. Mold of any kind is considered a problem and something you should deal with right away. When homeowners find mold in their homes and report it to their insurance company, the process is often called "mold damage restoration." This is the process of restoring your property to its condition pre-mold.

There are certain things that must be done to make sure the mold damage is truly repaired and you won't have a problem in the future. Here are a few:

  1. Identify the location: where is does the mold originate? Is it growing somewhere you can't see?
  2. Find out if it is dangerous. Testing the area where mold is growing is a necessary step to restoring your property and easing your mind.
  3. Call us to clean it well. Small areas of mold can usually be cleaned by the homeowner with a disinfectant. But if it's more than 10 square feet, you should consider hiring professional help.
