Safeguarding Property and Reversing the Water Damage 

Hicksville, NY, is a census-designated place with a population of 43,869. It's historically significant as a former Long Island Rail Road (LIRR) hub. Various landmarks can let you know that you are in Hicksville, including Broadway Mall, Hicksville Public Library, and Hicksville Fire Department Museum, which features antique fire apparatus and memorabilia. Local events such as the Hicksville Street Fair bring people together for fun and interaction. 

If an incident requires water damage repair at your Hicksville premises, you must be well-prepared. Otherwise, mishaps and improper tools might interfere with the process, costing you time and money. SERVPRO® prioritizes four key areas when handling incidents, ensuring the process runs smoothly. 

The Focus Areas

  • Safety
  • Moisture management
  • Material removal
  • Material disposal

Water creates several hazards, including slippery surfaces, short circuits, and unstable structural areas. Therefore, your premises might be unsafe for customers, visitors, and workers. Enhancing safety before starting repairs minimizes the chances of mishaps, so we bring accessories such as wet floor warning signs and barrier tape to isolate the affected areas. Enhancing safety is critical, especially when handling tasks such as demolition to remove carpets, insulation, and electrical and deteriorated structural materials. Our crews have different tools to cut, dislodge, and strip materials from surfaces.

Handy Tools for Safe Demolition of Wet Areas

  • Utility knife
  • Pry bars and crowbars 
  • Circular saws

Water damage repairs are not over until the intruding moisture and the waste materials accumulating within the premises are removed. Depending on how you prepare, this part of the process can be tedious. Our SERVPRO crews bring wheeled trash cans or heavy-duty plastic bags to keep the debris and soil removed. We also have water extractors, air movers, and dehumidifiers for moisture management. 

SERVPRO of Hicksville / Plainview manages water damage repair professionally. Call (516) 733-1800. Faster to any size disaster™.
