It is natural to reach for a mop and bucket or your shop vac whenever you have a water spill or appliance failure inside your home. However, having any standing water means that moisture often lurks in areas where the naked eye cannot see.

This plan also includes detailed calculations for the number of fans and dehumidifiers we need to achieve our drying goals.
Moisture Detection Tools At-The-Ready
Our technicians must work to restore relative humidity (RH) to normal levels with any water-related incident.

- Thermal imaging

SERVPRO’s Mold Damage Assistance Is There for Niagara Falls Residents
Mold removal is something you may see listed on over-the-counter cleaning products or hear from a company claiming they can eliminate all the black mold in your Niagara Falls Property.

Why Not Spray the Mold and Clean It Myself?
Calling in the professionals ensures your safety and those within your home. Black mold can cause severe damage, so you want to have a skilled team handling the cleanup.
Fast facts about mold:
Mold spores are microscopic, and they are everywhere in the world around us. There are countless types of mold, both inside and outside. The tiny spores can get into your home via your home’s HVAC system, open windows, on your clothing, and even on your pets. Some facts to keep in mind include:
- Strong, musty odors are usually a tell-tale sign that mold is developing somewhere within your home. This colony could be in your basement, around bathroom fixtures, under cabinetry, or even behind walls where a hidden pipe leak is lurking.
- Mold spores thrive on moisture and colonize rapidly in the right environment. All mold needs to multiply is moisture, warm temperatures, and an organic food source.
- Many people may have a hidden mold issue that develops due to poor ventilation or water damage that was not addressed thoroughly.
- The cause of the mold infestation must get handled with any mold cleanup and damage project; otherwise, the mold can come right back.
SERVPRO is Also Available for Commercial Mold Remediation

What Should I Do Until You Arrive for Mold Damage Cleanup?

- Never spray anything on the mold or disturb it with cloths or brushes
- Turn off your HVAC system or any fans

Become Familiar With Niagara Falls Fire Damage Remediation Services
Regardless of the room currently facing fire damage, one call to SERVPRO gets you the help you need to tackle the issues involved. Call 24/7.
What to Do About the Fire Damage in Your Niagara Falls Home
In our homes, there are many potential sources of fire damage. However, a significant portion of homeowners finds themselves ill-prepared for when a fire strikes their property. Should a blaze break out on your property, you must seek professional help as soon as possible.
Imagine that fire damage strikes your Niagara Falls home. You may wonder when you should make a phone call to a professional cleanup and restoration company. Ideally, you should make the call as soon as possible.
Discoloration begins once objects begin to cool. Plastics can begin to yellow, making it a lot harder to remediate certain things. Ideally, fire damage should be addressed before an object has returned to its former temperature. Remediation does not become impossible once something has cooled; however, it is considerably easier for professionals like SERVPRO to treat damage before it cools.
Let's say the fire in your home was relatively small, and firefighting services were unnecessary. A candle left to its own devices on a bookshelf caused a small fire to some old journals. A fire extinguisher took care of the flames, but scorch marks and greasy soot stains remained behind the shelf.
After receiving your call, SERVPRO could assemble a team of fire and smoke damage technicians to send to your home. Once we determine the type of smoke that has stained your shelf, our technicians can quickly get to work to ensure that your home can once again feel "Like it never even happened."
SERVPRO uses lubricative house-made cleaning agents designed to lift the grime from whatever surface they are applied to and then break it down. While removing the stains and smoke damage from your shelf, our SERVPRO techs can set up an air scrubber to ensure no lingering smell is left behind.
Should you need help with fire damage, never hesitate to call. Get in touch with SERVPRO of North Niagara County by dialing (716) 299-0330. We're always ready to help you.
What Do I Do if Flood Water Seeps into My Home?
We’re Faster to Any Size Disaster.
Call SERVPRO for Prompt Mitigation if Your Niagara Falls Home Suffers from Flood Damage
Weather can be unpredictable, so if you are faced with flash flooding, it might leave a substantial amount of water in your Niagara Falls basement. When this happens, your belongings can be destroyed, but you must also deal with water removal and cleanup. It is natural to worry about the best way to address flooding, but this is where trained flood mitigation technicians come to the rescue.
How Long Will It Take to Recover After a Flood Loss?
SERVPRO has the training and equipment necessary to help you address flood damage in Niagara Falls in a fast, efficient manner. Our team undergoes extensive training and uses IICRC techniques to help manage and work through flood loss events. We have crew chiefs available 7 days a week, 24 hours a day, and often can have a team on-site and ready to get to work in just a few hours.
Is the Water in My Basement Hazardous?
Whenever excessive flooding happens around your property and water infiltrates your basement, it often contains debris, mud, and contaminated materials. As a homeowner, you have the choice of trying to address the water removal on your own or calling in the help of trained technicians. It is not recommended to treat potentially contaminated water with DIY methods as you could put yourself at risk. When you call SERVPRO for help with water removal, we come fully equipped with tools such as:
- Extraction Equipment: Each of our trucks comes loaded with the necessary tools. Truck-mounted water extraction tools allow us to quickly remove hundreds to thousands of gallons of water. We also have powerful submersible pumps to help remove water from targeted spots with high water levels within your home.
- Air Movers: Our team has a unique formula that allows us to strategically place industrial fans and high-speed air movers that increase airflow over your floors and furniture to help speed up moisture evaporation. We often reposition the air movers as needed to ensure efficiency.
- Dehumidifiers: Industrial-strength dehumidifiers are vital for any water removal job we respond to. We have specialized dehumidifiers to help pull moisture from the air inside your home, thus lowering humidity levels. This allows us to keep your home safe from secondary water damage that can cause your flooring, walls, and furniture to warp.
Can I Save Some of the Contents of My Flooded Basement?
Many items in your home with a hard surface can be recovered. Packout service allows us to move items to a staging area at our facility or in another area of your home. We can then work on cleaning and sanitizing all of these items safely until moving them back in at the end of the project.
We understand how important it is for you to try and salvage whatever you can from your home after a flood event. We consider what the items are made from and how long they are saturated with water. Materials like drywall and pressboard are susceptible to immense damage with water penetration, just like other porous items within the space. Things like upholstery, carpets, carpet padding, and other fabrics can hold a great deal of water. Our skilled technicians work as quickly as possible to limit the amount of loss. Some items may be moved off-site for detailed cleaning, while things made with glass, ceramic, marble, or metal might be dried and disinfected.
How Do You Address Mold Growth?
Mold and mildew growth are common whenever water infiltration is involved. Our team ensures that proper cleaning and disinfection are part of your project so that we can inhibit dangerous mold growth, keeping your interior safe for you and your family. Some of the ways that SERVPRO works to slow down or inhibit the onset of mold include:
- The application of products to baseboards, walls, subfloors, and other organic materials known for microbe development and odors.
- The use of EPA-registered, broad-spectrum disinfectants that work on non-porous materials to thwart microbial contamination.
- Thorough wiping down all non-porous surfaces followed by complete disinfection
- The application of deodorizes to carpet fibers, carpet backs, and other materials helps limit odor onset.
We are Faster To Any Size Disaster at SERVPRO of North Niagara County, and you can reach us for emergency flood damage services at any time of day or night. With a phone call to (716) 299-0330, we set a team in motion to arrive at your home to begin the assessment as soon as possible.
How Water Damage Repair Benefits Niagara Falls Homes
Call SERVPRO of North Niagara County at (000) 000-0000 for fast and efficient service.
SERVPRO Water Restoration Safeguards Niagara Falls Homes
A leaking roof should not be taken lightly, and quick mitigation should be taken immediately before your Niagara Falls property gets further damaged. Do not panic, though. With SERVPRO professionals, you can have the damage repaired rapidly. Our technicians have the experience and proper tools to get the situation under control.
SERVPRO helps prevent water damage at a Niagara Falls property from worsening by establishing where the water is coming from. A damaged roof or plumbing issues are a possible cause of water damage on your ceiling. For example, if the plumbing system is old, a corroded pipe could leak and lead to water damage.
Signs of water damage on the ceiling:
- Discoloration or water spots
- Sagging ceiling
- Musty odor
- Cracked or bubbling paint
An obvious sign of water damage is discoloration around the affected area. These yellow or brown stains often indicate a leak. Also, a damaged ceiling affects the paint as it might start to peel or crack. A lack of physical signs does not mean there is no water damage. If you notice a musty odor on your property, it may be a sign of water damage, and it might be from your ceiling.
How to Repair
The plasterboard is very porous and hence quickly absorbs water. Even though a general contractor can fix the minor damages in the form of cracks, severe ones like crumbling the material and sagging the ceiling require cutting and installing new drywall sheets. There is also the need for drying to ensure total moisture removal.
SERVPRO crews drill weep holes to free trapped water, then set air movers. Air movers help sweep moisture away from the surface, evaporating it into the air. Once the moisture is in the air, we set up dehumidifiers to dry it.
Other essential actions:
- Fixing leaking pipes
- Replacing damaged shingles
- Priming and painting the ceiling
SERVPRO of North Niagara County helps restore home sections that have sustained water damage, including ceilings, "Like it never even happened." Call us at (716) 299-0330.
Niagara Falls Flooding Affects Cinder Blocks and Basements
When Niagara Falls floods your basement, Call SERVPRO for Cleanup and Repair
Who Can Fix my Basement Flooding?
Natural flooding can affect your Niagara Falls home quickly in the right conditions. Rising water around your structure can present immense pressure on elements like your foundation masonry units. Vulnerabilities that exist in the mortar joints or blockwork itself can quickly become exposed when hydro-static pressure forces water through these openings. Once water damage exists on the basement floor, it is vital to begin work on removing this threat as soon as possible.
Because flood damage in Niagara Falls homes can be a widespread and devastating force, it is a situation that our SERVPRO team remains prepared to face all year round. When we first arrive at a flooded address, the chief objective is to begin extraction work to identify any considerable structural breaches that require repair or reconstruction. Extraction can involve multiple tools, but the standard machines and devices that our team chooses for natural flooding include:
- Submersible Pumps
- Trash Pumps
- Truck-Mount Pumps
- Wet Vacuums
What Repairs Can Prevent Flooding Again?
A thorough inspection of the blockwork and other vulnerable points of your basement can identify where floodwater entered your home and if this continues to be a threat. In some situations, hydraulic cement can seal over smaller vulnerabilities, while more substantial breaches might require controlled demolition and reconstruction of foundation walls. Homeowners who experience flooding regularly might also consider the installation of diversion equipment such as sump pumps.
Addressing the pressing concerns of flood damage and preventing it in the future are two efforts that blend the restoration and reconstruction abilities of our SERVPRO of North Niagara County team. No matter how we can help, we are available 24/7 at (716) 304-2163.

Is Niagara Floodwater Contaminated?
Spring storms, melting snow, and an overflowing river can lead to flooding in your Niagara home. After the initial shock, and you and your family are out of immediate danger, it is time to go about the task of removing the contaminated floodwater and dealing with the cleanup.
Many of My Belongings are Wet and Dirty, Should I Throw Them Away?
No, SERVPRO Technicians Assess Items to Determine Restorability
After flood damage in Niagara, it might be tempting to simply go through your home and dispose of damaged belongings such as furniture, textiles, documents, and books. However, our restoration specialists have a process to assess the contents in your home. Depending on the severity of the damage, technicians may take affected items to a secure offsite storage facility where they clean, dry, and restore your items whenever possible.
What Building Materials Are Subject to Damage? How Are They Removed?
- Everything from carpet to ceiling may suffer damage during a flood.
- Technicians remove ruined building materials such as soaked drywall and carpet padding.
- SERVPRO disposes of destroyed items according to local and state ordinances, so you do not need to worry about hauling yourself.
What Might Happen if I Do Not Deal with The Flooding Right Away?
- Moisture may travel throughout the walls.
- Strong, musty odors may develop.
- Mold colonies may grow and flourish with excess moisture.
- Slow mitigation results in further damage and expenses
After a flood, safely cleaning your home is also an important consideration. Flood water is considered contaminated water by the EPA, requiring disinfectant use and careful safety precautions such as wearing appropriate PPE (personal protective equipment). As the homeowner, you may need to leave your home for safety purposes during some or all of the restoration process while technicians thoroughly sanitize your home.

- We address smoke and soot residue on all surfaces using carefully selected techniques.
- Materials get categorized into two categories: washable and non-washable.

Scalability is vital in any commercial fire restoration project

When Fire Damages Your Niagara Falls Home
House fires are traumatizing. Let SERVPRO remove some of the stress and restore your home.
Addressing Smoke and Fire Damage in Your Niagara Falls Home
Once you experience a fire in your home, there is more than the burnt remains from the flames that are cause for concern. In many cases, the smoke can leave lingering damage that needs addressing appropriately. Instead of trying to tackle a do-it-yourself project, calling the professionals at SERVPRO gets you the results that you need, fast.
If you need help addressing fire damage in Niagara Falls, there are several ways that we can help at SERVPRO. Here are just a sampling of the reasons why addressing smoke and soot are so important:
Smoke Infiltrates More Areas Than Flames
Even the smallest fire contained in a confined space puts out smoke that spreads out to other areas. Smoke travels, carrying soot as well as other contaminants. Choose professionals to help with smoke and soot removal throughout your home regardless of the span of the flames.
Smoke Brings on Long-Term Damage
Fire damage in the home might be evident to the naked eye, but smoke damage can linger and remain undetected. Particles from soot and smoke can get into your electronics, causing the hardware and metal to corrode. SERVPRO technicians address your devices, televisions, computers, and other electronics and either clean using specialized methods or suggest a replacement. We can recommend a reputable third party to repair the devices for expensive and necessary electronics.
Smoke Odors Can Be Tough to Remove
Foul odors from a fire can remain present throughout your home for a long time. Even if you try to clean it on your own, the harsh residue and remaining particles are hard to eliminate. Porous materials like your walls, carpeting, and upholstery need careful cleaning to remove all stubborn contaminants.
SERVPRO technicians employ the use of a wide range of products and equipment to rid your home of smoke orders after a fire loss. With water-based thermal fog deodorizers, the tiny particle-sized fog gets into small crevices and cracks to neutralize tough odors. By using deodorant granules or pellets, odors are absorbed safely and effectively. When we come in to do an assessment, you can count on our team to put together the best course of action for quality, long-lasting results.
Call us at SERVPRO of North Niagara County when you need help with fire damage restoration. You can reach us at 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, by calling (716) 299-0330 so that we can make it “Like it never even happened.”
