SERVPRO Technicians Provide Glen Cove Dwellers with Fire Damage Restoration Services to Make it "Like it never even happened."  

Glen Cove city is located on the north shore of Long Island. According to the 2010 census, the city is home to over 26,964 people. Between 1680 and 1917, Glen Cove was under the jurisdiction of the town of Oyster Bay. Due to its appealing location on Long Island Sound, this city attracts many people, and they can participate in different locally themed activities.

If you want to learn about this area's early inhabitants, you can visit the Garvies Point Museum. It is set amidst a sixty-two-acre reserve, and it provides visitors with an insight into the culture and history of the Native Americans who lived in Long Island and other areas in New York. From the Native American gallery, you can learn how people migrated from Asia to America and how their cultural practices evolved as they moved to different regions of the continent.

If you like hiking to stay in shape, the Welwyn Preserve is a great place to do that. It sits on the land that Harold Irving Pratt, a petroleum heir, owned. The large nature reserve covers over 200 acres. It has four marked trails that lead visitors to a salt marsh, swamps and freshwater ponds, a stretch of shoreline, and a stream that cuts through thick woodlands. While visiting the preserve, you can see some of its wildlife, including a hundred bird species, reptiles, amphibians, and small mammals.

The History of Glen Cove City

In the early 20th century, people considered the city as part of the North Shore's Gold Coast since wealthy businessmen like J.P. Morgan, Prybil, Phipps, and Pratt developed large country estates along the waterfront. During this period, the city hosted several successful manufacturing companies that attracted many immigrants from Eastern Europe, Ireland, and Italy. A good number of the population that resided in the city worked in manufacturing companies, local agriculture, and retail businesses.

For thousands of years, the city has preserved the cultures of indigenous people. The English migrants from New England used Glen Cove as a port before 1668 and named it "Moscheto." Joseph Carpenter bought around 2000 acres of land on May 24th, 1668, northwest of the Town of Oyster Bay. He later admitted four other residents of Oyster Bay as project partners. The settlement was later named Musketa Cove Plantation. 

After the Second World War, the area's population grew rapidly, just like other suburbs. After completing residential developments on farms and pastureland, most of the residents were the second or third-generation descendants of Eastern European immigrants. Most African Americans who reside in the city are descendants of slaves from the colonial period, while others migrated to New York during the first half of the 20th-century's Great Migration.    

Glen Cove city has an extensive waterfront area with three public beaches, including:

  • Morgan Beach
  • Prybil Beach
  • Crescent Beach

For those who love sailing, the city has several sailing clubs and secure boating storage. The Brewer's Boardyard is the only existing yard in the city. The city also hosts sailboat racing on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday evenings. On Saturdays, the event is held in the afternoon. Tourists and residents can watch the event from various points on Garvies Point Preserve hills and the neighboring village of Sea Cliff. Those who reside, work or spend most of the time at the waterfront have a saying that goes, "if you hear the train, it is going to rain." That means when the train whistle blows, the wind from the east is coming, and a storm is on its way.   

The City's Rich Culture

Glen Cove is rich in different cultures. The city is home to the headquarters of the (ASDA) American Stamp Dealers Association. In July and August, free concerts take place during the Morgan Park Music Festival in Morgan Park.

The city is home to several other historic mansions and buildings, such as the U.S. Post Office, built during the Great Depression in 1932, and the Justice Court Building. The local authorities renovated the two buildings and adapted them for use. 

However, fire incidents in the city can ruin historical monuments. For instance, on January 6th, 2018, a stubborn, raging fire destroyed a 120-year-old mansion. According to fire officials, the strong wind and low water pressure contributed significantly to the property's loss. The $1.6 million mansion featured 11 bedrooms, two partial bathrooms, and four full bathrooms.  When a fire incident occurs, it is essential to hire professional restorers.

How SERVPRO Technicians help Glen Cove property owners with Fire Damage restoration        

Fires can cause severe property damage. Secondary fire damage can take place shortly after a fire incident. The solution that results when smoke residues mix with water can cause yellowing of carpets and furniture and corrosion on metallic surfaces like kitchen appliances. Charcoal-like odors may linger across the property, including the unaffected areas. To get your property to its pre-damage state within a short period, thorough cleanup is necessary.

Restoring your property to its preloss state is not an easy task. You need a professional restorer to help you restore damaged structures and contents and clean up the affected surfaces. The entire restoration process can be a headache, especially for inexperienced persons. Therefore, it is vital to involve an experienced restoration expert with the necessary equipment and tools to handle the task.  

At SERVPRO, we use state-of-the-art equipment and advanced products to complete the fire damage restoration process. For instance, we can use a reducing bleach solution like a natural fabric brightener mixed with shampoo super concentrate to clean oxidized stains from furniture and wool carpeting.

Our Fire Damage Restoration Includes:

  • Conducting a thorough property inspection to determine the intensity of the damage.
  • Removing soot and debris on all surfaces to minimize damage and improve air quality.
  • Removing house contents damaged beyond restoration.
  • Drying wet surfaces in the property using our high-tech equipment to speed up the process.
  • Deep cleaning and deodorizing the property using our innovative techniques.

Depending on the damage intensity, SERVPRO technicians can completely restore your property within a few days. We can work fast and efficiently to get you and your family back to your normal routine.

A fire can cause severe primary and secondary damage to your property if you delay the restoration process. Contact SERVPRO of Oyster Bay immediately to minimize damage and restore your property to its pre-fire state. Talk to us today at (516) 464-3300.
