SERVPRO Handles All Underlying Issues during Mold Removal from Oceanside Business Premises

Unseen problems such as a hidden roof leak allow water to penetrate the ceiling space soaking various materials like insulation, wooden trusses, and other structural supports. Unless the intrusion is significant enough, the water can remain in the void for days before discovery. Since black mold starts developing in as little as 48 hours, mold remediation and other services are necessary to restore the business premises.

Under such circumstances, the mold remediation process in your Oceanside business premises presents additional challenges such as removing deteriorated materials, protecting the contents in your work areas, and dealing with the mold. SERVPRO deals with various mold-related issues during our regular cleaning assignments, including:

  • Mold Removal
  • Attic Mold Removal
  • Black Mold Damage Repairs

Our SERVPRO technicians incorporate the protection of your valuables into the removal process. For instance, we have plastic sheets to cover items in working areas before tearing down the ceiling to remove wet and moldy materials. When cleaning the moldy residues, we avoid approaches that can spread them further. We clean surfaces from top to bottom or in the direction of negative airflow machines eliminating settled spores. Using antimicrobial products helps kill spores.

SERVPRO of Long Beach / Oceanside can help save your business by performing exceptional mold remediation. Call us at (516) 536-1801.

SERVPRO Performs Separate Deodorization during House Fire Clean Up Exercises in Long Beach

Fire incidents in properties lead to different offending odors. The odors are emitted by the residues left over from the combustion process. Since residues are deposited on surfaces and embedded in between or within materials, each loss site has several odor sources. The cleanup alone rarely takes care of the offending smells.

SERVPRO seeks to remove all offending odors during fire damage restoration in Long Beach properties. Combining different deodorization techniques is one of the effective ways we use to defeat odors. In most cases, we use a multi-phased odor control process to improve efficiency and avoid using some processes if the initial ones are effective.  The phased process involves:

  • Chemical containment 
  • Vapor odor control
  • Thermal fogging

The phased approach helps in many ways. For instance, chemical containment prevents odor molecules from vaporizing into the air. Vapor odor control neutralizes molecules that are already airborne. Fogging spreads counteractants everywhere, including deep within materials, thus pairing with malodor particles, thus neutralizing them. The processes are helpful in different situations, including:

  • Fire damage restoration
  • Smoke remediation
  • House fire clean up

SERVPRO of Long Beach / Oceanside uses various approaches to ensure conclusive restoration of fire damage. Call us at (516) 536-1801 when you need help.

SERVPRO Takes Care of All the Nitty-Gritty of Water Damage Remediation in Oceanside Properties

The ease of movement from one point to another is one of the significant considerations when choosing a place to live, which means an area with a good road network is favorable to many people. Even if you rarely pay attention to roads, you are bound to notice if emergency services take time navigating through traffic to reach your property when you need help. Oceanside has several interconnected roads, including Rockaway Avenue, Oceanside Road, Atlantic Avenue, and several others.

Apart from roads, there are several other ways to get in and out of Oceanside. For instance, the final stop for the Long Island Railroad is off Lawson Boulevard. Travel by boat is also viable along the coast or on various waterways within the area.

Open Spaces and Public Areas

When not going to work or staying at home, public places are the next best places to spend time.  An area with numerous public places where you can partake in hiking, picnicking, or other relaxing activities is desirable. In Oceanside, there are several open spaces that people visit, including:

  • Marine Nature Study Area

The area is idyllic and perfect for a relaxing walk as you enjoy the scenery, which includes open grass patches, ponds, and slightly wooded areas. There are numerous bird types in the area, including Ospreys and Ruby-Throated Hummingbirds. Changing tides expose the mudflats creating a unique experience.

  • Oceanside Park

The park is a large waterfront property located on Mahlon Brower Drive. It has several sports fields for handball, tennis, basketball, and volleyball. Its location adjacent to the bay means it is normally windy, although that is not an issue when engaging in physical activities. The stream running on the edge of the park provides an excellent location for kids to explore.

  • Middle Bay Country Club

If your ideal relaxation is playing a round of golf, The Middle Bay Country Club is a perfect location to tee off within Oceanside. The course lies on the southern shore of Long Island, providing unique views of the bay. The course is airy with nice fairways and manicured greens.

Oceanside is a collection of small towns and villages known as a hamlet in New York State's Nassau County. The region was first settled upon by English Puritans who originally named the area Christian Hook in 1674. Proximity to Long Beach and the eastern coast saw Christian Hook prosper as a prime spot for oysters and other marine trades, with Mott's Landing's prime location. By 1864 the town was renamed Oceanville, famous for sales of Oyster and other seafood-related products. It was not until 1890 that the hamlet gained its modern title of Oceanside. 

From the twentieth century onward, Oceanside fulfilled much of the requirements of a bedroom community. Close connection to New York City via the Long Island Railway ensured that many larger cities' residents moved onto the shore side hamlet. The low-lying flat grounds around Oceanside have made it at a higher risk of extreme weather and flooding issues. These issues were brought to a head in 2012 when Hurricane Sandy had a devastating impact on the local community and commerce. Despite the high flood risk in the area, many residents have decided to stay put with minimal effect on housing prices.

  • The Marine Study Conservation Area on Slice Drive is home to rare birds and wildlife that frequent the east coast of America. An abundance of local fish in the area ensures that the conserved nature continues to prosper while regular tours are available for residents and visitors.
  • The Barrier Brewing Company on New Street has a rotating tap selection of up to twelve craft brews at any one time. One of the earliest Nathan's Famous restaurants is located on Long Beach Road, serving fresh seafood from the bay.
  • Popular streets in Oceanside include Long Beach Road, Oceanside Road, and Atlantic Avenue. Despite primarily being a residential community, these few streets offer some excellent food options and nightlife as well as occasional live entertainment.

Are Mold-Infested Materials Saveable?

SERVPRO Can Often Save High-Value Items from Mold Growth in your Oceanside Home

Mold attaches itself to materials using hyphae- which are vine-like growths. These hyphae also produce new mold spores. The core factor in saving mold-infested materials is the porosity of the material itself. Porous materials generally sustain growth below the surface level, making them impossible to restore. 

The advantage of using professional mold removal companies in Oceanside is that a homeowner can ensure their belongings stand the best chance of recovery. SERVPRO technicians are certificated by the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certifications body and follow S500 protocol when conducting mold remediation. 

  • Molds are a type of microbe or microorganism that require food, water, and temperature to grow. 
  • Microbial contamination is a high-risk when performing remediation, often setting up a containment room or decontamination space.
  • Negative air pressure machines work in a similar way to vacuums and can reduce mold spores spreading during remediation. 

Reduce the long-term effects of mold infestation. Contact SERVPRO of Long Beach / Oceanside for leading mold removal companies at (516) 536-1801.

SERVPRO Odor Control Technicians (OCT) Can Control and Reduce Persistent Burnt Odors

A property fire can lead to numerous types of damage in the home. Among the hardest to remove without an expert equipment is odor. The odor is a volatile particle that materials release during combustion. The particles can often become embedded in surfaces leading to persistent odors. 

Our fire damage restoration services in Long Beach include the removal of unpleasant odors. We use a variety of methods to find and counteract odors. Usually, SERVPRO production technicians identify various sources of odor and remove them from the property. These may be charred items or other types of fire debris. Once odor-causing items are removed, we can thoroughly fumigate the area. 

  • Ultra-low volume (ULV) misting equipment can be effective in localized spaces and remain safe for property inhabitants.
  • Air fresheners and other masking agents can often cover an odor until it naturally disperses in two or three weeks.
  • Performing an air exchange can help to ventilate a property with odor issues thoroughly. We can deploy box fans to achieve high-efficiency air exchange.

SERVPRO helps stop mold spores from spreading in Long Beach

If you spot signs of mold damage in your house, it is vital to immediately deal with it. Fungal spores can quickly become airborne, or hitch a ride on your clothes or pet’s fur, and spread throughout your home.

If you are looking for a Long Beach mold remediation company, choose one that understands the importance of containment in fighting mold. SERVPRO trains our technicians to use containment to lessen the spread of mold spores:

  • Thick polyethylene sheeting and duct tape create a barrier.
  • Air scrubbers and negative air machines pull fungus spores from the air.
  • Taping over vents, ducts, and window and door frames means fewer places for mold to escape.

We also set up staging areas, if needed, to lessen the risk of our technicians carrying mold spores on their clothes. Staging areas give us a focused place to don and remove protective equipment and dispose of mold-damaged materials.

When we are finished with mold remediation, we deodorize the area to get rid of musty fungus smells.

For a thorough mold remediation service, call SERVPRO of Long Beach / Oceanside at (516) 536-1801.

SERVPRO is Here To Help After Fire

Oceanside is a delightful hamlet in the state of New York. With a population of just 32,109, it is small enough to explore easily while still being convenient for the larger city of Hempstead.

Despite its name, Oceanside does not directly face the Atlantic. Long Beach Barrier Island and the strait of Reynolds Channel separate the hamlet from the sea. You might wonder why it is called Oceanside in that case. When settlers came to the area in 1674, they named their settlement “Christian Hook” to honor the predominant religion among the settlers. However, residents decided in the early nineteenth century that the town needed a more attractive name, and in 1864, they agreed on Oceanville. After the name became official, residents realized there was already an Oceanville in New York and re-named their town to Ocean Side in 1890. In 1918, townspeople condensed the name to Oceanside, and so it has remained.

Fun for all the family in Oceanside

Oceanside is famous for many things, including fresh oysters and nearby nature walks. One of the most attractive things about the town is how well it caters to families. If you are on a family vacation, you will not be bored. Some of the best attractions in and near Oceanside include:

  • Just Escape offers fun, creative escape room events for all the family. You might find yourself trying to escape the mob or get out of an illusionist’s trap. Just Escape offers games for both kids and adults, and you can even book it as a party venue.
  • Fun Station USA is perfect if the weather is terrible. This indoor attraction features bumper cars, a multi-level maze, laser tag, and arcade games. Kids of all ages can while away many happy hours here.
  • Long Island Children’s Museum offers hands-on learning for kids. There are several permanent exhibits, including the ever-popular soap room filled with bubbles and a place to build sandcastles.

If you are craving some fresh air, take a trip to nearby Hempstead Lake State Park. You can bike or hike the trails or go for a more leisurely walk along the lakeshore. There is also a playground and a wooden carousel to amuse the children.

When it is time to stop for a snack, Oceanside does not disappoint. You can find everything from locally caught seafood to authentic Italian food and a wealth of adorable tea shops to satisfy your appetite.

SERVPRO helps Oceanside homes smell fresh after fire damage

One of the most upsetting parts of fire damage to your home is the lingering smoke smell. Fire odors can be tough to get rid of, and catching a whiff of smoke is an unpleasant reminder of what happened.

SERVPRO understands that your home simply does not feel like your own while it still stinks of smoke. That is why deodorization is a crucial part of our fire damage remediation process. Some of the options are:

  • Odor fighting pellets, granules, or beads, which can mask or absorb odors.
  • Water-based ULV misters to spread odor-fighting agents into every nook and cranny.
  • Thermal fogging distributes a solvent-based agent, which we then leave for several hours or even overnight to do its job.

To get your home smelling fresh after a fire, call SERVPRO of Long Beach / Oceanside at (516) 536-1801.
