Of all of the disasters and unfortunate events that could befall your Bow residence, fires are among the worst. No matter the severity of these incidents, there are always lingering effects that a homeowner must contend with to be able to move on with their life. While some of these effects might be on the lower end of the threatening spectrum, nearly all of them still require professional restoration services to remedy.
 
While you might not ever want to think about fire damages to your Bow home, this unfortunate event is something that several homeowners have to face at some point. With our efforts to respond rapidly to every call, our SERVPRO professionals are a wise choice for restoring the damage to your home. Our unique training in modern techniques and the latest equipment for fire damage repair and restoration makes us individually qualified to handle anything you might face after a blaze in your house.
 
From the moment that our professionals arrive at your home, we get to work on assessing the damage. There may be damages in your home that require boarding up or tarping over to protect them from further external damages; we prioritize this process. When the damage is too severe or widespread, a residential contractor must complete this repair before our restoration process can begin or continue. This inspection also looks for signs of water damage present in your home, which is a common side effect of the extinguishment effort.
 
Deodorization is a significant component to restoring a home after a recent fire because the noxious odor of smoke and charring can linger for a long time. Remedying this effect utilizes thermal foggers with a chemical compound that neutralizes this harsh scent on a molecular level, effectively removing it. Soot cleaning is another critical piece of the restoration process, as it affects surfaces and contents of your home that have been aesthetically marred by the recent fire. We set out to do this with sponges and high-powered vacuums to pull soot out of fabrics, textiles, and porous surfaces.
 
Finding a way to recover from a recent fire might not always be an easy thing to do, but with the right professional assistance, it does not have to remain overwhelming for long. You can trust the experience and dedication of SERVPRO of Concord restoration specialists to help you overcome the damage and begin the process of moving on.

Water Damage Water Heater Water Damage in Your Concord Home Water Removal and Cleanup After an Appliance Leak in Concord? Call SERVPRO

Concord Homeowners Turn to SERVPRO for Water Cleanup and Restoration

Water heater failure is more common in Concord homes than most realize. It can occur from a slow leak that you do not notice right away, instead of the water rushing out all at once. If the water heater is on an upper level of your home, the damage can be much more extensive since water always travels downhill. Even though regular inspections can help you prevent such a disaster; however, sometimes problems can still arise.

A water heater failure in your Concord home can create a significant amount of water damage to your house, especially if the appliance is on an upper floor. Either way, you do not want to hesitate in getting the mess cleaned up. Our SERVPRO techs are here to help you for this reason. The longer you let the water sit, the more damage there is.

Once we remove the water from your home, we need to clean the structure as well. Items like subfloors and walls may need cleaning. We clean materials that are restorable with a method that is right for the kind of material we are restoring.

Our SERVPRO technicians use professionally formulated products, following all the label directions. Our end goal is to ensure that your home looks as good, if not better, then it did before the water damage, "Like it never even happened."
 
If any carpeting was affected, SERVPRO teams dry, clean and deodorize it. We choose a cleaning method that is right for the amount of soiling that happened. Other contents might need to be cleaned as well if they were affected by the water. Sometimes, your wooden furniture requires cleaning due to exposure to high humidity. We also check closets, clothing, and areas of storage for contents that may be damp. Photographs and wall hangings are checked for damage from condensation and high humidity as well.
 
We ensure you are satisfied with our work before finalizing the job. Moisture levels are rechecked to assure your home is dry, and a complete walkthrough is completed for this purpose. If any problems are found we correct them, and lastly, we remove any equipment and supplies.

Flood Damage in Concord and Your Home

3/18/2018 (Permalink)

Storm Damage Flood Damage in Concord and Your Home If storm damage strikes your home, call the professionals at SERVPRO to restore your home "Like it never even happened."

SERVPRO’s Crew is Trained and Experienced to Thoroughly Restore Your Home after Flood Damage

Torrential rain and lightning storms wash away the dirt and grime covering the city in Concord, but the damage it can cause to your home through flooding can bring about severe problems. This type of water carries that washed-away grime directly into your home and then leaves it there once the waters recede. This grime also includes pathogens, microbes, and other biological matter that can cause health effects.

SERVPRO assists homeowners in Concord by undoing the flood damages affecting their homes. Our extraction equipment removes the water, of any amount, and then we begin to dry out your home's interior thoroughly. Heat, air currents, and drying equipment all work together and at specific times to create a drier atmosphere. Our training and experience help us determine the best approach, even in homes with closed in spaces and long hallways.

In addition to drying your home's interior, we also perform sanitation services so that we return your home's interior pathogen load to within normal ranges. We not only have equipment that reads the amount of moisture in a material, but we also use devices that can read how many foreign particles cover the surface. Our extraction machines also remove those tiny organisms which can cause health effects in both people and pets.

Our experience with flood damage and its effects include the control of odors left behind by water. These odors, evidence of microorganisms and decaying matter can last for months or even years, or until we remove them. Our Odor Control Technician (OCT) holds IICRC certification and can help your home lose its post-flood musty odors. Ozone treatments or the use of hydroxyl gas can eliminate such problems. Helping restore even the way your home smells remains an important goal for our crew members.

SERVPRO of Concord can help your family after flood damage makes things unlivable. Call us at (603) 225-2825 if you live in the area around Bow or Penacook so we can help restore things quickly and efficiently.

Basics of Mold Damage Remediation in Concord

3/11/2018 (Permalink)

Mold Remediation Basics of Mold Damage Remediation in Concord If you find mold in your home, calling SERVPRO right away is the first step to getting the mold infestation under control.

Team SERVPRO Has Experience When it Comes to Remediating Mold Damage

To prevent your materials from mold damage, you need to dry water soaked contents and rooms quickly. Damp areas are prone to fungi and bacterial attack which leads to possible decomposition, and that translates to additional losses. With that in mind, it is crucial for any Concord resident to know what to do after making such a discovery.
 
Understanding the basics is necessary for any mold damage remediation process in Concord to be a success. If you are working with our SERVPRO technicians, we first do a pre-inspection to determine the degree of contamination. We are aware that moldy areas may cause health effects, and as a result, we wear protective gear such as masks during the process. The pre-inspection enables us to plan the procedures to use during the remediation exercise.
 
Usually, mildew growth starts from one point and spreads to other clean areas. That is why our SERVPRO team first identifies the source and tries to prevent it from becoming airborne. One of the techniques we use to achieve that is by ensuring the movement of air is from the clean areas to the contaminated areas, and not vice-versa. We use negative air machines to do that, and in the process protect our technicians from the level of exposure.
 
If we discover that the level of contamination on the dry walls has gone beyond normal levels, we might perform some demolitions. We also remove the excessively damaged contents from the area and recommend replacements where necessary. HEPA vacuuming is also so helpful when we need to remove the mold spores.
 
Another critical step that our SERVPRO technicians do is cleaning the soiled surfaces and materials. We use detergents that have sterilizing properties when doing damp wiping to reduce the chances of future mildew growth. We can also perform deodorization and set up air movers in the area to improve the quality of air.
 
SERVPRO of Concord is an industry leader in storm, water, fire, and mold remediation. Call us at (603) 225-2825 when you face any size of disaster to get served with reliable services.

Fire Damage from a Space Heater in Your Bow Home

2/26/2018 (Permalink)

Fire Damage Fire Damage from a Space Heater in Your Bow Home Space heaters can be very dangerous and should be kept away from flammable objects.

SERVPRO is Here to Help if a Fire Starts in Your Home

In the colder winter months in Bow, homeowners commonly use some type of portable space heater for one reason or another. Using them in bedrooms at night is one popular use. However, many people do not think about the potential dangers of these heating devices when they are misused. You need to keep anything combustible away from the heater, and if something fell onto it or close to it while you are sleeping, a slow fire can start.

Before you know it, your bedroom could be filled with smoke, even from a small fire. The fire damage your Bow home sustains needs to be taken care of right away. The soot and smoke damage left behind can continue to do damage after the fire is out. Our staff at SERVPRO are always standing by to help you after a disaster like this. We can get it cleaned up for you in a timely fashion so you can get back to life as usual.

Fire damage creates several different challenges when it comes to cleaning it up. A building that has burned includes various complicated reactions between various elements. These include how much oxygen, heat, and moisture are present, the kind of material being burned, the kinds of smoke that are present, the airflow patterns in the building, and what kinds of surfaces are impacted by heat and smoke.

When it comes to surfaces, SERVPRO understands that porous ones let particles and odor permeate deeper and are a lot more difficult to clean. Surfaces that are nonporous, such as glossy enamel paint and vinyl wall coverings, are easier to clean than paper wall coverings or flat latex paint. Synthetic fibers attract greater concentrations of residue than natural fibers. However, synthetics clean better than natural fabrics.

Also, the older the surface is, the harder it can be for us to clean. Heat causes surfaces to expand and then become porous. Odors and residue can penetrate surfaces more efficiently. It does not matter whether it is fabric, paint, or carpet. As old paint deteriorates, for example, it becomes more porous, and its adhesion is weakened.

SERVPRO of Concord has the training and tools to clean the fire damage in your home in Bow, Penacock, or Concord correctly and thoroughly. Reach out to us at (603) 225-2825 when you are dealing with damage left after a fire.

Water Damage Learn To Secure Your Concord Property From Water Damage Related Problems Don't Waste Money on Leaks in Your Concord Home--SERVPRO Tip

Preventing Leaks to Your Concord Home Is Better Than Mitigating Damages

Water damage can occur in many ways and all we have to do it to know our options to mitigate the effects. For instance, think about the kind of challenges that a clogged gutter can make your Concord home experience. By failing to address it in good time, the water leaks and accumulates around the foundation of your house. Within no time, cracks appear, and that means foundation damage could be the end-result.

Even when the foundation of your Concord home does not suffer from water damage, there are chances that the resulting dampness may lead to mold growth. Mildew growth may lead to health effects and to avoid that you need to work with a restoration company like SERVPRO. This is the time when you need the right equipment to extract that water within the shortest time possible. When there is stagnant water on your property, our team may use vacuuming. Vacuum pumps work in such a way that they remove the water from a given area and direct it to a distant place or in a tank outside the house.

One of the most important activities we undertake during a typical water removal exercise is to identify concealed areas that might contain the moisture. Our SERVPRO technicians use specialized equipment such as infra-red cameras, moisture meters, and detectors to sense the presence of water in such areas and work towards removing it. In the process, we inspect whether the ceilings and wooden floors in your property are safe, and if not, we recommend a replacement.

While some water-related challenges are hard to prevent, there are some that our SERVPRO team can help you reduce their chances of happening. I am referring to having inspected your plumbing system, washing machine, water heater and air conditioning units which are known to cause moisture build-up.

SERVPRO of Concord is a proven industry leader in water damage restoration. Call us at (603) 225-2825 at any time of the day for service.

Smoke and Fire Damage Cleanup for Your Bow Business

Commercial Smoke and Fire Damage Cleanup for Your Bow Business Having too many cords plugged into one electrical strip is a hazard and can result in an electrical fire.

Trust the Professionals at SERVPRO to Properly Restore Your Business after Fire Damage

Electrical fires can occur at any time in your Bow pizza parlor, many times from outdated wiring, faulty outlets, or too many items plugged into one electrical strip. To reduce the risk of this happening, make sure all your electrical outlets, wiring, and cords in your building are up-to-date, not damaged or broken, or running underneath an appliance or rug which can make the wires overheat. Make sure extension cords work correctly and do not have exposed or frayed wiring.

If an electrical fire did break out in your pizza parlor in Bow, the fire damage left behind wouldn’t be just from the heat and flames. You are looking at soot and smoke damage as well, plus perhaps water damage from firefighting efforts. It is a lot to deal with, so call our professionals at SERVPRO to help you. We are professionally trained to handle all aspects of fire damage, and we have the tools to do the job efficiently and correctly so you can get your business back on track.

When restoring materials that have been damaged by smoke, our goal is to restore them back to their preloss condition. We apply some basic principles of cleaning to accomplish this task.

First, SERVPRO techs locate smoke residues by carefully inspecting the area affected. We begin near the source of the fire and then trace how far the smoke moved through your structure. Different kinds of smoke residues can be in the same loss environment. We select a cleaning method which effectively removes the kind of smoke residues that are present.

We also need to identify the kind of surface the residues are on, which determines what cleaning methods and products are safe to use on the particular surface. We are careful to preserve the surface or material being cleaned. However, we may not be able to restore some materials if they cannot withstand the process of cleaning.

Smoke residues bond with surfaces they contact, so we use dry and wet cleaning procedures to release and carry the residue particles away from the surface affected. Then we can properly dispose of the cleaning waste and debris.

The methods of cleaning up after a fire at SERVPRO of Concord are designed so we can thoroughly restore your business in Bow, Concord, or Penacock. Get in touch with us immediately after a fire at (603) 225-2825 so we can get you back and up and running quickly.
