Our SERVPRO Team can help with Fire Debris Cleanup, Odor Removal, and Restoration.

Niagara's region encompasses a large area, 1140 square miles, with 54% of the area consisting of rivers and lakes. The city of Niagara Falls is named after the falls and has a population of approximately 50,000, while the county has around 216,000 people. The Niagara River is part of the US – Canada border, the escarpment cliff that forms the falls, the Niagara whirlpool downstream from the falls, and the Niagara Gorge also downstream from the falls.

The city of Niagara Falls and the Niagara Falls State Park is close to the falls and brings thousands of visitors to the region. The city, originally incorporated in 1892, has evolved from a heavy industry-driven concentration facilitated by the availability of inexpensive hydro-electric power to today's tourist-focused economy driven by the falls. There are three waterfalls – The American Falls, The Bridal Veil Falls, and the Horseshoe Falls on the river's Canadian side.

Must-See Activities in Niagara Falls, New York

There are maps along with directions available from many nearby cities and towns. Also, visitors can download a walking tour app to their smartphone to assist in navigating around the park.

Every Season Offers Special Attractions in Niagara Falls

Wintertime transforms the falls with substantial ice buildups on the river above the falls and at the base of the falls. Ice can obscure the water cascading over the falls providing wonderful scenic pictures for those brave enough to stand the cold. Illumination of the falls occurs nightly from 5:00 pm until midnight. Millions of lights transform the falls into millions of fantastic colors that bounce off the ice creating a kaleidoscope of color.

Unsafe Seasonal Decorations Can Lead to House Fires in Niagara Falls

There are many things to see and do in Niagara Falls, however with winter approaching and the pandemic limiting many activities, we all are spending more time inside our homes. Recently a house fire started in a home and quickly engulfed two neighboring homes. Firefighters were unable to get the fire under control before the damage was done. Opportunities for small house fires abound unless we take precautions and follow safety guidelines as we go about our daily routines.

The local Niagara Falls Fire department offers guidelines on preventing fires and keeping your home safe for your family. These guidelines are even more critical, with many people working from home and spending more time in the kitchen. Fire prevention guidelines include:

  • Use LED candles in decorations – real candles can quickly start a fire
  • Keep items like corn stalks or bales of hay away from the front door or a fire source

Fire safety in the kitchen

  • Never leave oven mitts, towels, or trash on top of the stove
  • Keep towels well away from the oven door as you open and close the door
  • Use the new range safe knobs that are considered safe for children
  • Turn handles of frying pans and pots to the inside, so little hands cannot reach them

General Guidelines to follow

  • Purchase a fire extinguisher for your home with the designation, ABC
  • Install smoke alarms in sleeping areas and on all levels of your home
  • Test smoke alarms every month
  • Design and practice monthly your fire escape plan with your family

Remember to get out and call for help. The fire department can respond quickly and limit the damage if they arrive on the scene within minutes of the fire starting. Their fast response limits the damage from the fire as well as the collateral damage from fire retardant chemicals and water.  

How SERVPRO Can Help Residents Restore their Homes & Businesses After a Fire

Even a small fire can significantly disrupt daily activities for homeowners in Niagara Falls as well as businesses. There might not be much damage from the fire; however, a combination of the firemen's efforts to quell the fire and the smoke odors distributed through the home are more of a concern.

Many small fires are caused by cooking activities or spills on hot elements in the kitchen. Grease fires can damage kitchen cupboards and distribute smoke particles on surfaces in the kitchen and adjacent rooms. Our fire restoration technicians assess the damage from the fire, the fire retardants used by the fire department, and the distribution of smoke odors throughout the home or building, including the HVAC system.

SERVPRO technicians can remove odor sources such as items and building materials damaged by the fire to reduce odor sources. All surfaces are cleaned, and all portable items are washed and sanitized. Fabrics may be sent out for specialized cleaning. Depending on the amount of contamination, defogging equipment may also be recommended.

SERVPRO of North Niagara County provides fire restoration services to Niagara Falls residential and commercial business customers and the surrounding area. Call (716) 299-0330. Our technicians are available 24/7 to help with all fire debris removal and restoration needs.

Does a Residence in Niagara Falls Need Cleanup if Only Rain Water Gets Inside?

10/28/2020 (Permalink)

Water No matter the cause of the water damage in your home, call SERVPRO for any water removal and remediation efforts you need.

Fierce Winds can Force Rain into Walls in Niagara Falls Homes, Causing Extreme Damage.

Moisture left behind after a storm can cause severe deterioration to the interior side of your Niagara Falls home’s walls. Cleaning up floors helps with water, and homeowners are encouraged to take this proactive step. However, mops, buckets, and towels cannot sufficiently remove hidden water.

Detecting and removing water inside wall cavities before it can ruin the exterior can prevent the need for more extensive cleanup and demolition work later. Storm cleanup prevents permanent damage for Niagara Falls homeowners. Cracked window sills, gaps in between shingles, and badly aligned gutters can all help windy storms force water into your home’s shell. Not only is restoration work more expensive and avoidable, but it can also become a serious disruption. SERVPRO can help mitigate such consequences with infrared technology. With special cameras, we can “see” inside walls and locate damp areas.

Dampness from rain can damage different types of walls, starting in the interior cavity and spreading to

  • Drywall, weakening it, resulting in crumbling wall surfaces,
  • Plaster, allowing it to detach from its base in pieces of all sizes,
  • Wallpaper, causing bubbling centers and peeling seams.

Once we know where, if any, damp areas exist, we can dry these out and prevent damage that later requires more extensive cleanup. This is crucial if property owners want to protect their residence from preventable destruction. When walls disintegrate, mold can also become pervasive. SERVPRO can remediate such situations, containing affected areas within negative pressure enclosures. However, demolition can still create a mess, increasing the amount of time needed cleaning up before reconstruction takes place.

Available 24/7, SERVPRO of North Niagara County answers customer calls at (716) 299-0330 when you need us most. Flooding from heavy storms can leave your Barker, NY, Burt, NY, or Wilson, NY residence uninhabitable, but we can make it “Like it never even happened.”

Fire Restoration Technicians Clean the Structure and Personal Items After a Fire in a Niagara Falls Home

A fire in a Niagara Falls home can leave significant damage in its wake. Walls, columns, and other structural elements may be weaker, and your belongings may host significant levels of soot. The air in your house can also be questionable, and deciding where to start can be daunting. Because the chaos following a fire can be overwhelming, it is best to enlist a professional crew's help to help bring some order into your life.

In Niagara Falls, fire damage restoration plans are the foundation of every task our SERVPRO team undertakes to minimize your loss. By applying our deep understanding of the theory of fire and the latest techniques available to our industry, we can provide a comprehensive plan of action to return your house to normal as soon as possible. When you call our 24/7 hotline, we arrive at your home and take safety precautions to safeguard your health and your valuables, then proceed to set the stage for a successful restoration process.

What is the first step in a fire restoration project?
There may be competing priorities after a fire, but our SERVPRO crew knows that removing debris and charred objects is essential. Our staff focuses on safely removing ashes, soot, and any other items capable of expanding the damage by remaining in the home. Advantages of completing this first step may include:

    •    Minimizing the power of the odor left behind
    •    Opening the path to cleaning on-site elements
    •    Identification of items suitable for specialty cleaning solutions in an off-site location

Throughout the process, our SERVPRO of North Niagara County coordinates with you and insurance as appropriate in an attempt to create a seamless claim process for you. Call us at (716) 299-0330 as soon you need us and let us leave your property “Like it never even happened.”

How Can Niagara Falls Homeowners Preserve Hardwood Floors After Water Damage?

10/18/2020 (Permalink)

water droplets leaking in bucket from ceiling, damaged roof Make sure to act quickly when water damage affects your hardwood floors. Contact our certified technicians to remediate the damage.

IICRC-Certified Restoration Technicians Can Perform Water Removal Services for Niagara Falls Homeowners

Many Niagara Falls homeowners enjoy the polish and longevity of hardwood floors in their residences. However, this long-lasting flooring solution still needs repairs and restoration every 10 to 30 years and requires immediate care after a pipe leak or other water damage situation. Without fast mitigation, moisture exposure can create permanent damages and lead to higher repair and replacement expenses.

SERVPRO technicians can provide water removal services for Niagara Falls homeowners, including drying and preservation of hardwood flooring when possible. This experienced team of restoration pros renders water damage mitigation per restoration industry standards as determined by the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC).

What Methods Can Homeowners Use to Protect Hardwood Floors from Water?

There are a variety of proactive measures homeowners can undertake to preserve their hardwood floors even before installation begins, including the following:

  • Inspect plumbing before installing wood floors. Plumbing leaks and burst pipes are among the most common causes of water-damaged hardwood flooring in Niagara Falls. Contact a licensed plumber to take a look at your plumbing and make any necessary repairs.
  • Clean floors carefully. Sweeping, vacuuming, and mopping with conservative amounts of moisture regularly all go a long way toward preserving your hardwood flooring and minimizing issues with water, dirt, dust, and scratches.
  • Protect your floors with a strong sealant. A reliable sealant, like wax or polyurethane, provides an aesthetically pleasing finish that also protects your hardwood. While these sealants cannot ensure a completely waterproof surface, they can offer you extra time to clean up moisture that might otherwise damage your floorboards. Wax sealants only need to be reapplied on an annual basis, while a coat of polyurethane lasts approximately three to four years at a time.
  • Minimize contact with water as much as possible. Moisture, especially in high traffic areas of your home, can accumulate quickly from day-to-day use. Clean up spills as soon as possible, avoid leaving damp objects like shoes and towels on the floor, and set aside a designated area for wet items, particularly shoes and umbrellas.

However, even with meticulous care and attention, accidents and disasters can happen. Your local SERVPRO is ready to serve Niagara Falls properties with cleanup and restoration at any time of the day or night, including weekends and holidays.

When Do Hardwood Floors Require Refinishing Versus Replacement?

Refinishing is typically performed every 10 to 12 years. This process entails sanding down old sealants and damages to return the floor to a smooth, scratch-free condition. After sanding, a fresh coat of sealant is applied to protect the surface of your flooring.

Niagara Falls homeowners may notice the following signs that can indicate that it is time to consult with a hardwood flooring specialist about refinishing:

  • A lackluster shine.
  • Scratches and scuff marks from furniture and daily use.
  • An uneven finish.
  • Stains, and dirt buildup, especially in high-traffic areas.

Refinishing is generally a more cost-effective option than replacing planks. However, water damage can render planks too damaged for refinishing in some areas. Common hardwood flooring issues that may necessitate replacement include:

  • Excessive warping, cupping, cracking, or buckling of planks.
  • Microbial growth from prolonged moisture exposure.

If your hardwood flooring requires repairs, your local SERVPRO team can make the necessary fixes as well as extract excess moisture from your floors and subfloor.

Can SERVPRO Technicians Salvage Water-Damaged Hardwood Flooring?

SERVPRO professionals take cleanup and repair of hardwood flooring seriously. While hardwood is often salvageable after a water damage incident, special care is necessary to ensure that flooring returns to a standard moisture content without further damaging floorboards. Restoration technicians measure the moisture content of your hardwood with moisture sensors calibrated for wood flooring.

Structural drying technicians must take a plethora of factors into account when restoring hardwood floors, including the following:

  • Floorboards can facilitate microbial growth when the moisture content is above 20%. Mold proliferation risk can be addressed with EPA-registered biocides in tandem with structural drying equipment.
  • Vapor barrier sealants on your flooring, like polyurethane, can impact the efficacy of moisture removal equipment and may require partial or full removal to salvage your floors. Technicians consult with both you and your insurance adjuster about whether to remove sealants or facilitate airflow with tools like pin rollers.
  • Hardwood often needs drying both above and below the planks to remove moisture. Depending on the situation at hand, this strategy can eliminate the need to perforate or remove sealants.

SERVPRO of North Niagara County can mitigate damage quickly with service that shows We’re Faster To Any Size Disaster. Call (716) 299-0330 to have an emergency response team on your property within hours of your initial contact.

There Is Mold Damage In My Niagara Falls Car Shop – What Should I Do?

Niagara Falls Shop Owners Are Unhappy With Mold Damage

Running a car shop takes planning and skill. As well as providing all the necessary equipment for car repairs, you need a team of staff you can rely on and a safe place for them to do their work.
Unfortunately, mold damage in Niagara Falls can affect any business. Mold is bad news for entrepreneurs, because:

Mold can damage wood, drywall, and paper, playing havoc with both premises and contents
• Mold spreads quickly and can set up new colonies throughout your premises
• Mold smells terrible and can cause health effects

How do I know if my car shop has mold? There are several tell-tale signs to watch out for:
• Visible patches of black, gray, or brownish mold on walls, ceilings, or window and door frames
• Discoloration from moisture damage
• A moldy odor

What should I do if I suspect a mold problem?
Call SERVPRO at the first sign of mold in your business. We’re Faster to Any Size Disaster! We have the equipment and training to remediate mold quickly and effectively.

The patches of mold you see are called the mycelium. Spores detach from the mycelium and drift throughout your business, looking for other places to grow. Time is of the essence, which is why it is essential to call us as soon as you suspect fungal growth.

How can SERVPRO help?
After we assess the situation, we will set up containment to discourage spores from spreading. We have a range of cleaning techniques and solutions in our repertoire, including powerful HEPA vacuums, scrubbing, ultrasonic cleaning, and baking soda blasting. Our technicians will choose the best options for your premises and get to work.

However, we do not stop after cleaning. We also use thermal imaging, moisture meters, and thermo-hygrometers to measure moisture in the air and behind walls. Our crew will set up air movers and dehumidifiers to dry out your shop and discourage further mold regrowth.

We also use air scrubbers, carbon filters, and sometimes fogging to deodorize your business and leave it Certified: SERVPRO Cleaned. If you have mold in your business, do not delay. Call SERVPRO of North Niagara County at (716) 299-0330.

Will Flood Water Ruin Our Basement?

9/10/2020 (Permalink)

"We can help" We understand how seriously flood water can impact your home. No matter when you make the call, we have technicians who can assist you.

To Help Inhibit Mold Growth and Structural Issues after Flood Damage to Your Niagara Falls Home, SERVPRO Arrives Fast with the Latest Restoration Methods.



A flooded basement is an event that brings worry and stress, which is never something that any Niagara Falls homeowner wants to deal with. When faced with a devastating storm, it is imperative that you address floodwater as soon as possible. The longer you allow standing water to fester in your basement, the more mildew and mold can multiply. Along with that, you face potentially harmful effects on your foundation, or moisture starts to migrate throughout other regions of the home. The best way to stop flood damage in its tracks is to call for help from trained water restoration technicians (WRT). 

Do I Need to Have Water Removal Right Away?

Waiting too long to address flood damage in Niagara Falls leads to many problems. Stagnant water in the home damages belongings and impacts structural integrity. Additionally, floodwater brings in a variety of contaminants and possible health effects from mold spores. Our team at SERVPRO works fast to halt the damage, which can save you a great deal of time and money.

Floodwater is a threat to the physical integrity of supporting structures of the home. This comes about due to the pressure and force of storm flooding, which includes:

  • Metal or wood framing may bend or sheer off
  • Doors, windows, and siding could begin to break or warp
  • Areas of your foundation may crack or begin to wash out

Along with the harmful deterioration of your home’s structural components, you also may experience harm to all of the porous materials located in your basement. The longer that you wait to start cleanup, your particleboard, insulation, ceiling tiles, drywall, and the framework takes on water. This leads to crumbling, warping, or total inability to restore using traditional methods.

Is Flood Water Contaminated?

There is a risk of contamination with any loss from a flood when storms bring water into your home. The surfaces and contents within your basement are subject to contaminants, but your indoor air quality also comes into question. Some of the various hazardous substances known to lurk in floodwater may include:

  • Mold, mildew, bacteria, and dangerous microbes
  • Human or animal waste, both of which must get treated as hazardous pathogens
  • Chemicals from various containers located outside the home or inside your basement, including oils, gasoline, fertilizers, cleaners, and more
  • Asbestos or lead that infiltrates from other surfaces or structures disturbed from floodwater or other activity throughout the cleanup process

What Does Flood Water Cleanup Entail?

All of our SERVPRO technicians are trained and certified via the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC). We work using best practices and the latest methods for securing your structure. We mitigate the damage, working to slow deterioration while preserving your interior. All debris and potentially biohazardous materials are promptly removed and properly disposed of. Our crew chief monitors a plan of action that allows us to extract water, clean up the zone, and disinfect all areas impacted by floodwater. We adjust our course as needed to ensure we reach our drying goals so that everything is left in preloss condition, “Like it never even happened.”

What Happens First?

After our Green Fleet arrives at your door, we assess the damage and begin securing your basement and the entire flood zone. We do this by:

  • Taping up any holes, tarping up or boarding up and broken windows
  • Bracing your home’s structure, which ensures safety for our crew as they work
  • Shutting off electricity and other utilities in the zone to eliminate shock or fire risks

SERVPRO slows damage in several ways. Initial assessment commences where our project manager or crew chief develops a detailed plan for water removal, cleaning, and restoration. Every project we get called to is unique, but common steps generally include:

  • Extraction of all water in the basement
  • Contaminated water containment, ensuring everything unsalvageable gets disposed of according to local guidelines 
  • Buffer placement to help when only partial flooding is present
  • Packout services to relocate belongings off-site for drying and cleaning
  • Plastic sheeting containment barriers in conjunction with air scrubbers to create negative pressure

Our technicians always wear personal protective equipment (PPE) for their safety throughout the floodwater removal and cleanup. This step also helps eliminate the tracking of contamination and debris into unaffected areas of the home.

Can You Be Sure the Basement is Dry?

Along with removing water, cleaning all surfaces, and using EPA-registered antimicrobial agents for disinfection, we also use moisture monitoring tools to ensure your home is thoroughly dried. Thermal imaging cameras, moisture sensors, and moisture meters help us to locate hidden pockets of moisture to clear them up. We always reposition our heaters, dehumidifiers, and air movers until we obtain regular readings.

At SERVPRO of North Niagara County, We’re Faster to Any Size Disaster. We can help with emergency flood damage services 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Call (716) 299-0330, and we can send out a crew as soon as possible.

How Can I Restore my Wood Floors and Furniture After a Fire in Niagara Falls?

9/2/2020 (Permalink)

kitchen burnt in fire At SERVPRO of North Niagara County, we take a comprehensive approach to your home's restoration.

A Fire Restoration Technician Can restore wood Floors and Furniture in your Niagara Falls Home

When a fire affects your Niagara Falls home, you may be at a loss in the next steps. Seeing your home in flames and then covered in soot can be quite overwhelming, but when you call an expert team, your fear should subside. Fire restoration technicians can explain the process in simple terms and explain what you should expect until your home is back to mint condition.

In Niagara Falls, your fire damage should be in our SERVPRO team's hands for the best results. Our expertise in the field and understanding of the theory of fire combine to make your restoration process as smooth as possible. We are uniquely equipped to handle all fire events with the latest equipment and techniques, which allows us to shine in our jobs.

Do I need to replace all wood items in my home?
Since wood is a naturally porous material, it is easy for soot and smells to permeate it. As a consequence, you may worry that cleaning agents will damage your floors and strip them of their beauty. Our team focuses on pre-testing any cleaning options in an inconspicuous area to determine the correct application for your particular case. Generally speaking, there are two types of wood surfaces our teams concentrate on; finished and unfinished. For finished surfaces covered with some sealer, we apply a cleaning solution and gently wipe the soot from it. Unfinished wood tends to absorb more residue and can stain easily, so we take this into account as we perform the cleanup process. Beyond cleaning, we focus on deodorizing your home by doing the following:

    •    Distributing odor pellets to counteract the smell
    •    Fogging with deodorizing solutions
    •    Incorporating a charcoal filter into your ventilation system to clean the air

At SERVPRO of North Niagara County, we take a comprehensive approach to your home's restoration. Call us at (716) 299-0330 whenever you need us and let us leave your home, “Like it never even happened.”

Water Damage Mitigation Services In Niagara Falls?

Close-up Photo Of Flooded Floor In Kitchen From Water Leak If you require water damage mitigation services, call for help today!

SERVPRO Can Help You Remediate the Water Damage in Your Niagara Falls Home!

Visualize a scenario where your Niagara Falls home suffers water damage. You might picture a burst pipe or a leaking appliance causing water to spread throughout your home. Unfortunately, these situations do happen, and many homes face accidents, both catastrophic and diminutive.

A calm reaction is genuinely the best defense you can have when dealing with water damage in your Niagara Falls home. Immediately reaching out for help can reduce wait times and help reduce the chances of the damage inside your home becoming permanent. Here at SERVPRO, we vow to "respond quickly when you have a water emergency."

Recently, SERVPRO helped a local home that ended up "flooded due to a toilet tank overflow while the owner was away." Unfortunately, something as small as a water supply line can be the culprit of significant damages. As soon as we arrived, our SERVPRO techs "extracted the standing water and [then] set up drying equipment."

When so much water spreads throughout the entire home, the job becomes more complicated. We have to do a lot more than merely removing the water, setting up drying equipment, and then checking for appropriate moisture levels. Whenever water sits for a significant period, flood cuts and floor-removal usually become a factor.

In the local home, the busted water supply line put "half of an inch of water throughout the whole home." Once we removed the standing water with advanced technological devices such as wet/dry vacuums and extractors, we packed up the entire home. We relocated their belongings to one of our facilities, where they could be treated.

Flood cuts are done to ensure that mold growth does not occur and save as much material as possible. For as little as half an inch, our flood cuts can be "two-foot" in height. Throughout the home, our technicians can remove carpeting, flooring, and toe-kicks. We can detach cabinetry from the walls and check the framing for damages. Here at SERVPRO, it is our job to inspect every inch of your home to ensure that you can go back to living your life, “Like it never even happened.” No matter the damages, we can help you, like we helped this local home.

If you require water damage mitigation services, call for help today! Speak with SERVPRO of North Niagara County by dialing (716) 299-0330. We're always available to help you.
