We also can assist with reconstruction and mold damage repairs in situations where heavily contaminated structural items must be carefully removed and replaced.

Based on the inspection results, we prepare plans to repair, remediate, and remove the mold without jeopardizing the rest of the building.

  • We install plastic sheeting and wood framing to contain the spread of mold spores
  • Follow approved disposal methods of damage contents and structure
  • Reconstruction and repair of a mold-damaged structure

Many accidents can cause water damage inside of your home. Something as minute as a pipe leak or as large as a burst pipe could leave your home in serious need of help. Fortunately, when accidents do occur, there is professional help nearby who can help you!

Imagine finding that your refrigerator had leaked from the water supply line and left your home in need of North Tonawanda water restoration services!

To clean up such a spill, the first thing our technicians can do is use extractors to remove the standing water.

Furthermore, we can use thermal imaging to check under your cabinets to see if water drained in a way that was not visible to the naked eye. 

After removing the standing water, our technicians can focus on using advanced technology to help provide an optimal drying environment. Devices such as air movers, axial fans, heaters, and dehumidifiers help reduce airborne moisture and return your home's humidity levels to an acceptable percentage.

What Do I Do When an Ocean Storm Causes Flood Damage in My Lockport Home?

SERVPRO can tarp your storm damaged roof to help prevent further damage.

SERVPRO Can Help You Remediate Severe or Mild Flood Damage in Your Lockport Home!

Storms can bring heavy rain, wind, and even lightning to your home. Sometimes, these storms can bring flash flooding, which can leave your home heavily water damaged. However, accidents happen, and what matters is how you react when a disaster does occur. 

For example, imagine your Lockport home suffering flood damage. A tree struck by lightning happened to fall over and break an upper floor window, allowing water to drain inside of a bedroom. In this circumstance, it is critical to get help to your home as quickly as possible. Fortunately, here at SERVPRO, we're experts when it comes to arriving as soon as we can. 

When inside your home, our expert technicians can focus on three main goals: removing the water, drying the structure of your home, remediating any affected belongings. Within these three goals, our other focus is on swift action. We want to get you back in your home as quickly as possible because we understand that it is not practical to be locked out for multiple weeks on end. 

The first thing we could do with this situation is taping over the broken window and then tarping it to help prevent even more moisture from getting inside. Secondly, we can begin to clean up any debris (twigs, leaves, branches) and then use a wet/dry vacuum to clean up standing water. While one team works upstairs, we could have another downstairs, using thermal imaging to look for hidden pockets of water which seeped below to the first floor. 

Should we need to make any flood cuts or remove flooring, we can do that before laying down drying equipment, such as floor drying mats and heaters. Our objective is to remove as much moisture as we can from your home and prevent microbial growth. Once finished, we try to return your possessions to how we found them, so you can go on feeling like your home is in its pre-flooded condition. 

When you need storm remediation, get help right away. Speak to SERVPRO of Eastern Niagara County by dialing (716) 694-7776. We want to help you get your home back to normal!

SERVPRO technicians are trained and IICRC certified for all matters of restoration. Call now for the fire damage remediation services that are needed.

Calling SERVPRO and its Team of Experts is the First Step to Restoring a Lockport Home After a Fire

When a fire happens in a Lockport home, it is hard to discern where to start addressing its consequences. The flames and smoke cause damage that can spread much further than one would expect, making it difficult for the average homeowner to organize the sequence of cleanup steps. Calling a professional fire restoration team can help mitigate losses and preserve some of your belongings.

SERVPRO is available for fire damage restoration for the Lockport community. Our fully trained staff arrives and safely considers the damage caused by the fire itself and by firefighters attempting to fight it. Fire damaged homes usually require water extraction and fire and smoke remediation services, both of which our team is ready to offer.

As our SERVPRO staff inspects your home, there may be areas unaffected by the incident, and we attempt to preserve those intact as much as possible. Some steps we might take to prevent the spread of fire damage throughout your home can include-

  • We can establish physical barriers between areas with plastic sheeting and set up clean zones where we can store undamaged goods.
  • Provide move-out services where we physically inventory and remove clean items from your home and keep them in an offsite location to avoid contamination. Once the cleanup is done, we return each item to its original spot.
  • Addressing your home ventilation system and cleaning it as needed. Controlling the paths through which soot and smell particles can travel helps us protect part of your home outside of the fire’s reach.

SERVPRO of Eastern Niagara County is an expert in fire damage restoration, and we’re ready to help as soon as you contact us at (716) 694-7776. Place your trust in us, and let us work hard to bring your home back to pre-fire condition.

Water damage restoration is no easy task. Call SERVPRO for the help and service needed for your property.

Water Restoration Technicians in Lockport Provide Water Cleanup and Restoration Services

The real estate market is thriving, and the idea of buying a fixer-upper in Lockport is tempting. Aside from evaluating the location and bones of the home, prospective buyers must take into account whether and how water cleanup efforts may help restore the home. Calling a certified team to make an assessment and develop a plan for restoration is the first step in the process.

To look at water damage in a Lockport home, you don’t need to look any further. A call to SERVPRO opens the door to a trained and certified team capable of assessing the extent of water damage, whether it was caused by a ceiling leak or sewage backup. Whatever the origin, our staff has at its disposal industry-grade equipment to handle water damage remediation jobs of all sizes.

One of the most obvious and cumbersome consequences of flooding includes floor damage. Before deciding to replace all flooring in the home, consider the following-

SERVPRO staff uses specialized equipment to gauge humidity levels in your floors and determine how to restore optimal measurements. Accurate measurements are particularly important when dealing with hardwood floors that may have buckled thanks to the water.

Drying mats can remove excess water out of floors by using negative pressure and suctioning it thanks to the air-tight environment created.

Subfloors can be dried efficiently when using injecti-dry technology, which circulates air through subfloors.

Consulting with our professional staff at SERVPRO of Eastern Niagara County can give you a clearer picture when looking at the work needed within your home. Call us at (716) 694-7776 and let us partner with you through the water damage restoration process.

Local Fire Restoration Services for Lockport Residents

Team SERVPRO has the equipment and tools to tackle the fire damage situation in your home. We are standing by 24/7 to handle your emergency.

SERVPRO is Available 24/7 for Emergency Fire Restoration – Call Us to Your Lockport Home After a Fire

A small fire in your finished basement, a medium blaze in your kitchen, or a substantial house fire that impacts several spaces – each one calls for skilled fire damage restoration. SERVPRO knows how to handle whatever fire and smoke damage that you may experience in your Lockport home. We also arrive fast so that you can get the remediation process going as quickly as possible. Before you know it, your home gets returned to pre-fire condition, “Like it never even happened.”

There are several challenges that fire and smoke restoration technicians (FSRT) experience when called for fire restoration in Lockport. Even the most minor fire event can bring a host of issues, such as:

  • Stubborn smoke residue left on a variety of surfaces
  • Charred building materials that call for complete removal and replacement
  • Water damage and moisture left from first responders extinguishing the flames
  • Hidden smoke damage that could lead to foul odors if not addressed fully
  • Unsafe structural elements

Smoke damage is a significant issue that our IICRC-certified technicians face when handling house fire clean up. The kind of residue present and the surfaces it touches will dictate which cleaning method is required. With loose dry particles, our technicians may use dry cleaning with brushes, sponges, or hand vacuums. Wet, heavier residue often calls for dissolving with the help of solvent-based cleaning agents. These products loosen the grip on surfaces so that the technician can start carefully wiping it away.

Once you get in touch with SERVPRO of Eastern Niagara County for fire restoration, we will have a team at your door within hours to begin the assessment. Call us to have our Green Fleet dispatched by dialing (716) 694-7776.
