Water Contamination Concerns When Flood Damage Affects Concord

9/8/2017 (Permalink)

Storm Damage Water Contamination Concerns When Flood Damage Affects Concord Contact SERVPRO after a flooding event in the home. We will assess the situation, begin removing standing water, and formulate a restoration plan.

SERVPRO's Technicians Remove Water First After Flooding and Then Assess the Remaining Damage

Severe storms over the past few months have Concord residents concerned about flooding in their homes. Saturated soils and overwhelmed storm sewers allow water to seep through foundations and backup in basements. When water floods into your house, we can help, especially important if the water standing in your lower level is at risk of contamination.
 
It is always important to remove water intruding into a building quickly, but removal needs to be speedy and safe when post-storm flood damage threatens your Concord home. Water that floods your home after days of rain collects all manner of chemicals and debris from the surrounding area. Adding a sewer backup to the mix increases the risk from gray to black water. Our crews have experience with the dirty water that fills your foundation, and we assure you we know how to remove it safely and dispose of it properly.
 
Whenever a sewer backs up, you face the probability of human waste, animal waste, bloodborne pathogens, and a broad array of lawn and pavement residue depositing inside your house. Even water that seeps through the foundation because the soil surrounding your home is overloaded with rain and runoff can carry hazardous chemicals and other pollutants into the pools forming in your basement or crawl space. SERVPRO has the equipment operated by certified staff that extracts and contains this foul water for disposal according to local regulations.
 
When dealing with black water, you need a professional flood damage restoration company with which to partner. Unless the contaminated water is eliminated immediately, you risk microbial proliferation and permanent damage to HVAC systems, appliances, and personal possessions stored in the affected areas. SERVPRO requires and supports advanced training for our workers managing your contamination and flooding issues. After the water exits, we evaluate your heating and cooling system for safe operation capability, cleaning and sanitizing it to prevent a spread of any of the dangerous substances to which it was exposed.
 
We also help determine whether furnishings and stored items are safe to dry out given the nature of the water soaking them. You can count on SERVPRO’s professionalism as we review your options, ensuring that you and your family are safe now and in the future.
 
SERVPRO of Concord awaits your call if storm flooding damages your property and threatens your health and well being because of contaminated water. We are available around the clock to answer questions and to schedule an inspection at (603) 225-2825.

Fire Damage Fire Damage Restoration Services After a House Fire in Concord Fires can get out of control very quickly. Once you and your family are safe and the fire is put out, give SERVPRO a call for remediation efforts.

SERVPRO Technicians Remediate All Aspects of Fire Damage in Your Home

It only takes a few seconds for a small flame to grow into a full-blown inferno. In as little as half a minute, a small fire can turn into a life-threatening disaster. It can ravage a home and put the lives of the occupants into major risk within no time. In fact, studies have shown that fires claim more American lives every year than all the natural calamities in the U.S combined. Additionally, the damage left behind can amount to tens or even hundreds of thousands of dollars. The increased usage of flammable materials in the house has not made the situation any easier.
 
If your property sustains fire damage in Concord, you can trust SERVPRO to restore the items in your home. We have industry-leading equipment for quick and efficient smoke odor and vapor removal. Additionally, our IICRC-approved technicians have many years of experience and know how to use different cleanup methods for different situations.
 
Water used to extinguish the fire can soak the floors and walls of the house. We must remove this water and dry the structure thoroughly to prevent wood rot and mold growth. Soot from the fire, on the other hand, can saturate and stain your upholstery. In this case, professional restoration requires combining various chemicals, equipment, and techniques to salvage the furnishings, draperies, carpet, and linens.
 
Smoke odors from the fire damage can pervade virtually anything in the home, including clothing, rugs, linens, and furnishings. The smoke can also damage the air ducts in the structure, triggering foul odors every time you turn on the air conditioner or furnace. It is essential that we clean up and repair the ducts before using the HVAC system again.
 
On certain fire damage occasions, SERVPRO technicians use ozone treatments to repair the smoke damage. This process requires tenting and treating the contents or even the entire house. We may use chemical sealers to fix smoke damage on flooring, drywall, and air ducts. Chemical additives can come in handy for treating smoke-damaged textiles such as carpets and draperies. Most floors, ceilings, and walls usually need strong chemicals to get rid of soot before repainting or re-carpeting them.
 
Fire is a very destructive element that can decimate your house very fast. As a locally based fire damage restoration company, SERVPRO of Concord can arrive quickly to restore your property. For emergency services, call us anytime at (603) 225-2825.

Keep An Eye On Condensation To Prevent Mold Damage In Concord

Mold Remediation Keep An Eye On Condensation To Prevent Mold Damage In Concord Most homes have condensation at some point.

Prevent Mold Damage

Most homes have condensation at some point. We are sure you have seen water droplet collecting on a window on a cold winter day, or seen the bathroom mirror all fogged up after a shower. The problem with condensation is that it is water, and that means it is wet. Dampness of any kind in your home puts your house at risk from mold. There are several signs that condensation is affecting your home, including visible water droplets, damp patches, or peeling wallpaper.

The presence of dampness provides an ideal breeding ground for mold. A condensation problem in your house can quickly turn into mold damage to your Concord home. SERVPRO recommends you take steps to prevent water droplets from forming around your home.

Adequate ventilation is a must. Air your home regularly by opening windows and even doors to allow air to move through. Get your ventilation system, HVAC and extractor fans serviced regularly and be sure they are working at optimum levels. Always switch on your extractor fan while bathing or taking a shower. If you do not have an extractor fan fitted, consider getting one installed. You might also want to get an extractor fan for your kitchen if you do not have one already.

Ways To Decrease Condensation

    •    Always close the kitchen door when cooking, cover pans with a lid when simmering or boiling food, and shut the bathroom door when bathing or showering.

    •    Wipe away water droplets as soon as you spot them. It is important to dry wet kitchen surfaces or appliances immediately. SERVPRO recommends that you always dry your shower stall and bathroom tiles after you take a shower or bath.

    •    Plants and home aquariums are unexpected sources of condensation. That is why you should always keep aquariums covered with a lid, to prevent excess evaporation. It is also an excellent idea to monitor the area around house plants for signs of dampness, and if you see such signs, move the plant or even transplant it outside if appropriate.

If you notice evidence of condensation or dampness in your home, it is a good idea to call in the experts. Get in touch with SERVPRO so our IICRC-certified experts can thoroughly assess your property for condensation, dampness, and signs of mold. SERVPRO uses state of the art tools to test dampness levels and have dehumidifiers, air movers and box fans on hand to increase ventilation and decrease humidity. Do not let water damage run amok in your house. Call SERVPRO of Concord at (603) 225-2825 for assistance.

Water Damage Can Come From The Smallest Of Leaks In Concord

7/21/2017 (Permalink)

Water Damage Water Damage Can Come From The Smallest Of Leaks In Concord Small leaks around pipes or drains are often ignored.

Water Damage From Leaks

Small leaks around pipes or drains are often ignored. Many homeowners and tenants feel that the water has the ability to evaporate faster than it can accumulate because there seems to be no or very little puddling under the leak.

If you own a home in Concord, you should protect your property from this kind of water damage. While it may seem that evaporation is going on at a rate that would not allow such harm to result, this is only because the water is being absorbed by the materials closest to where the water drops are landing. If the water is also running down a vertical surface such as a pipe or a wall, then this can only add to the damage sustained.

Water that seeps behind walls and under floors eventually makes its presence known in other ways. Mold growth, the development of water stains, and dry rot of weight-bearing support structures can all harm your home and create expensive repair problems. Repairing the leak, even a tiny one, is almost always beneficial in more than one way. After the leak is repaired, the damage can be stopped from advancing, and the area can then be successfully repaired.

When water damage has not shown any signs, our technicians can use moisture meters to detect where elevated levels of moisture exist. Trained according to IICRC standards, SERVPRO professionals know where to look for water damage even when it is invisible. A wall may seem sound because of the way it looks while it is really damaged and in need of repair or replacement. We always repair, along with cleaning and sanitizing, before resorting to removal and replacing, as this is the least-intrusive, least-expensive route to take when restoring someone's home.

Remember, the absence of a wet surface in the presence of a small leak only means that the water is being hidden under the surface but still present. SERVPRO of Concord can help you and your family by locating these types of leaks, and restoring the area, so no trace of water damage remains. Call us at your earliest convenience, even in the middle of the night or during a holiday, at (603) 225-2825.

Restoration Plans For Unique Cases Of Flooding in Bow

7/11/2017 (Permalink)

Storm Damage Restoration Plans For Unique Cases Of Flooding in Bow Flooding happens quickly and can bring mold into your house if not dealt with right away. Be prepared by having SERVPRO on speed dial.

SERVPRO Technicians Arrive Equipped to Remove Flood Waters from Your Property

Our community lies to the west of the Merrimack River, occasionally posing a flood risk. Strong storms also threaten residents with watery basements due to roof runoff or seepage. Appliances and tubs overflow, among other household water hazards. No matter the cause, SERVPRO offers experienced crews and powerful equipment to restore residences affected by flooding.
 
To extend the growing season year-round, you installed a hydroponic garden system. The reservoir holds more than thirty gallons and unfortunately sprung a leak while you were out of town over a long weekend. The lower level, including a carpeted family room, suffered flood damage in your Bow home. Water, fortified with the nutrients necessary to grow plants without soil, needs removal and structures, fixtures, and belongings need drying. Expect us at your home within hours, implementing a plan to return the flooded spaces to preloss condition quickly.
 
Flood water classifies as clean, gray, or black. Gray is somewhat and black greatly contaminated with substances that can be harmful to buildings, contents, and occupants. Professional cleanup is essential when the water has added chemicals as with your hydroponic system, and SERVPRO ensures technicians trained in abating tainted water complete your job.
 
First, an experienced project manager assesses the challenges presented by the flood of water mixed with the hydroponic growth medium. The fertilizer intended for plant growth may instead encourage microbial colonies as it soaks into building materials, flooring, and up the walls. Just 48 hours of wetness risks mold growth, so the first task is removal of the water with pumps and extractors. Our truck-mounted system allows us to collect the gray water for disposal off-site in accord with local hazardous waste procedures.
 
Because carpeting and drywall soaked up the water, we evaluate whether drying of these materials is possible. The disintegration of the pressed fibers in the drywall signal that at least a portion needs to be removed and replaced. The padding under the carpet is relatively inexpensive to switch out and increases the likelihood that the carpeting itself dries thoroughly. Air movers and dehumidifiers speed the removal of moisture in the carpet, the floor beneath, the walls, and the air itself. The SERVPRO team applies antimicrobial agents to the carpeting during the restoration process as a safeguard.
 
SERVPRO of Concord is up to any challenge, including the concerns that arise when your lower level floods due to a hydroponic growth system leak. Call (603) 225-2825 for an inspection and the development of a plan that fits your unique flood damage issues.

The Risk Of Carpet Delamination After Flood Damage From A Dishwasher or Storm In Concord

6/2/2017 (Permalink)

Storm Damage The Risk Of Carpet Delamination After Flood Damage From A Dishwasher or Storm In Concord Concord Carpeting Needs Restoration or Replacement After Appliance or Storm Damage

Storm Water or Appliance Leakage Both Require SERVPRO Restoration to Salvage Carpeting

Dishwashers are a wonderfully convenient household appliance, but as with any such device, there is always the risk of the dishwasher breaking down and causing a flood in your kitchen or utility room. Groundwater from storms is a dirtier flood to deal with but occurs less often.
 
Following flood damage in your Concord home, saving your carpet is a priority. After all, carpet is expensive to replace, and you want to avoid paying out for a new one if at all possible. SERVPRO is on hand to dry and restore your carpet – our aim is to make it “Like it never even happened.” Contaminated carpets filled with dirt, bacteria, waste from flooding requires a more complex inspection and treatment.
 
Carpet delamination is a real risk if your dishwasher floods in a carpeted area. To understand carpet delamination we need to know the construction of a carpet. Carpet has a primary backing and a secondary backing. The secondary backing is the one that is in contact with the floor underneath. Typically, soaked carpets and padding from groundwater flooding requires disposal and then a thorough drying of the floor base.
 
Delamination occurs when the primary backing becomes separated from the secondary backing. There are several causes of delamination, including poor quality manufacturing and improper installation. Another reason is flood damage. Water might cause the bonding glue to break down and the two backings to separate.
 
Drying carpet as quickly and as thoroughly as possible is necessary to lessen the risk of delamination. SERVPRO technicians are equipped to deal with the results of a dishwasher flood and dry the surrounding area effectively. Our technicians can also extract water post storm to reduce lamination effects.
 
Our IICRC-certified professionals have free-standing, truck mounted and submersible pumps on hand to remove water from the flooded area. Extraction is more efficient than drying, so it is important to spend plenty of time on this stage to hasten the drying process.
 
There is also a risk of delamination if the wet carpet is handled too roughly. You can rest assured that our team takes the greatest of care during the extraction process to minimize the risk of damage to your carpet. We also make several passes with the appropriate extraction tool because we know that extracting as much water as we can shorten the drying time.
 
After extraction, we position air movers and dehumidifiers around the area to evaporate water from your carpet and bring down the humidity in the surrounding air. If the storm dictated that the carpet was not salvageable, our techs can prep the sub-base and disinfect all exposed areas.
 
If you are concerned about the state of your carpet after a storm or a broken appliance, give SERVPRO of Concord a call at (603) 225-2825 for assistance.

How to Seal Up Smoke and Fire Damage in Concord Properties

5/18/2017 (Permalink)

Fire Damage How to Seal Up Smoke and Fire Damage in Concord Properties Dealing with the aftermath of a fire can be devastating. Call SERVPRO to be your ally during the entire process. You'll be happy with the results.

SERVPRO Technicians Thoroughly Remediate Fire Damage

In recent years, the use of primers and sealers has become very common among fire damage restorers. While they are not suitable as a primary strategy, they can be very effective as a supplemental response to stains and odors. When a high-quality sealer gets applied to a wall or skirting board, for example, it traps the sooty residues inside.

It is something which conventional paints cannot do. They let smoke stains and odors seep back through the material, while sealers isolate and bond settled combustion particles. They hide discoloration and minimize the transmission of unpleasant smells. For all of these reasons, SERVPRO regularly uses them when repairing fire damage in Concord homes.

Surface Preparation

Most primers and sealers require a clean, smooth surface for a successful application. It is why SERVPRO spends time removing surface soot and caked on grime before using any of these products. There are two types of combustion particles which develop after a fire. They are surface contaminants and settled residues.

Surface contaminants get captured in a HEPA vacuum. It is a fast, effective way to remove large amounts of dry, dusty soot. Cellular rubber sponges pick up additional particles. The problem is that the tiniest particles tend to escape surface wiping because they are small enough to hide within microscopic dips and troughs.

Consequently, this kind of cleaning is usually a two-step process. These much smaller settled residues are, in most cases, water soluble. So, the SERVPRO technicians can wet wash to prevent the electrostatic bonding of particles. For embedded dirt and soot, a degree of abrasion is necessary. If the stained area is sizable, we can power sand or grit blast it.

Sealer Application

Once the surface is as smooth and clean as possible, a sealer chemical gets sprayed onto the targeted area. The process may take some time because successful odor prevention depends upon the construction of a flawless membrane. There can be no gaps or holes in the sealant. The spray nozzle must be held perpendicular to the surface for even coverage.

It should be made clear that sealers and primers are not a magic cure. They are powerful and effective, but they age just like everything else. So, while your treatments should last a long time, you may need a respray a number of years down the line. If you require help with this or you have a poorly applied primer which needs fixing, SERVPRO is here to lend a hand.

SERVPRO of Concord has many years of experience handling smoke and fire damage. We are in your neighborhood and ready to assist with repairs whenever you need them. Call us 24/7 at (603) 225-2825 today.
