Why Choose a Full-Service Restoration Partner in Brooklyn

With hundreds of vendors vying for your business after a water, fire, storm, or mold event in your Brooklyn residence or condo, townhouse, or brownstone your might believe it necessary to act as a general contractor. Arranging for different companies to handle individual tasks and coordinating their efforts wastes time and money. Your focus is better aimed at regaining yours and your family’s emotional equilibrium after a disaster. Let our full-service restoration team manage the details.

Water Damage
Dozens of reasons might lie behind your need for water removal in Brooklyn, but the most critical issue going forward is finding a company that can deliver a rapid response, ridding your residence of the excess moisture with pumps, extractors, and an appropriate drying plan. Our crews are Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC)-accredited, up to speed on the latest water removal techniques and operation of state-of-the-art equipment. We do not fall for gimmicks, and untested means to come to your aid. Hard work and proven methods are our mainstays.

Once you engage our services, we take on all the tasks needed to mitigate further water damage and remediate the harm already done. We permit no downtime, working ceaselessly to make it right. The multiple certifications in specialties like Water Damage Restoration Technician (WRT) and Applied Structural Drying (ASD) held by our crew members allows us to move from task to task without delay. The full-service approach is why SERVPRO delivers on our promises fast and professionally.

We hold both general contractor (Residential Contractor License #: 2015353DCA) and mold remediation ( Mold Remediation Contractor License #: 00055) licenses giving us the flexibility to take on secondary damage issues and help arrange for rebuilding and restoration of structural components destroyed by the water loss. Our commitment to transforming a watery mess to preloss condition is at the center of our mission, and we are eager to help you with the consequences of plumbing leaks, appliance malfunctions, spills and overflows, or any other event that requires water removal in your home.

Fire Damage
Fire cleanup in Brooklyn is an involved process. If your residence has a sprinkler system or the fire department needed to use quantities of water to quell the blaze, the first order of business often is water removal and drying. The reason water damage moves to the front of the line is exposure to the risks of slips and falls, or electrical shock, in addition to the deterioration water does on its own. Our multi-certified technicians can switch from task to task with confidence.

Soot and other residues need evaluation and matching with appropriate products and methods before cleanup, and ventilation can become an issue in multi-unit buildings. These issues are why SERVPRO’s full-spectrum restoration capability has benefits. We often use air scrubbers that use negative pressure to force contaminants through HEPA filters before exhausting to the outdoors. Air quality is improved, including the clearing of any fumes from cleaners or solvents used to remove protein-based soot from kitchen fires.

We have workers specially trained as Odor Control Technicians (OCT) to resolve lingering smells. A clean and dry home that still contains malodors is not where we welcome our customers. If deep cleaning and debris disposal does not do the trick, we use advanced technology such as thermal foggers, hydroxyl generators, and ozone machines to neutralize the tiny odor-bearing particles floating or settled in your residence through a chemical reaction that eliminates the stench. Do not rely on coverups when we offer this service.

Mold Remediation
Mold damage in your Brooklyn residence can be more of a challenge than the average homeowner can manage. Hosting mold and mildew in your home does not label you as a poor housekeeper. It merely means that the spores these organisms use to reproduce have found a source of moisture. Spores are present in every environment indoors and out on the streets. They coexist invisibly until an opportunity presents itself in an unmopped spill, leak under the sink, or condensation on a window pane.

Within 24 to 48 hours, the watermeal results in active mold growth and eventually, damage. Molds munch on organic surfaces, including wood, wallboard, ceiling tiles, and insulation. A few dead skin cells and soap scum on bathroom tile provide an incubator. A regular phase of any of our water damage projects is inspecting for mold growth, and our ability to remediate the fungal invasion as well is why SERVPRO’s extensive menu of disaster remediation services is so advantageous to our customers.

After you find mold and call us, we send a specially prepared and equipped remediation crew to your location. We isolate, contain, and remove the microbial overgrowth following the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) protocols. Frequently we employ an air scrubber negative pressure system to seal the affected area off, and our crew wear personal protective equipment (PPE) to limit contamination from the debris we remove, bag, and discard. Count on us to help you pinpoint the unwanted water source and arrange for its elimination, so mold spores go hungry in the future.

Storm Damage
Severe weather can strike anywhere, and the devastation it can do to your Brooklyn residence is often significant. Roofs can fail, and trees and light poles can damage windows and even knock holes in exterior walls. When your living spaces suffer this kind of damage, you definitely need to obtain professional help immediately. Not only do you require assistance to secure the building to prevent further damage from the elements, but you also are likely to have a long list of concerns inside your house or apartment as the water spreads.

If you use lower level storage, storm-related flash flooding can cause damage to rarely used items, seasonal clothing and decor, mementos, and documents. When we arrive, we might suggest moving the endangered stored items to our production facility where specially trained technicians can evaluate their condition and use appropriate techniques to clean, dry, and restore the articles. We utilize the Contents Claim Inventory Service (CCIS) to document the location and condition of the items, another example of why SERVPRO considers every aspect of the damage done to our customers.

Many of your neighbors might also have storm damage, but with our team on your side, you do not wait for help. Our affiliation with a nationwide fellowship of disaster providers means we can scale our response to the level of need in the community. We also can arrange for repair and rebuilding services to ensure this tough situation does not get even more disheartening as remediation completes. Once again through rigorous training and testing, we can offer these two licenses to our customers: Residential Contractor License #: 2015353DCA and
Mold Remediation Contractor License #: 00055 thereby assuring them of a full-service recovery.

SERVPRO of Northwest Brooklyn is by your side every step of the way after a crisis damages your home. Call (718) 522-4400 24/7 for help with any household emergency and see how We’re Faster To Any Size Disaster.
