SERVPRO - Eliminating Fire Damage In Concord Homes

With I-89, I-93, and I-393 running through it, Concord is truly a crossroads community for our state and much of New England. Steady growth with an emphasis on family and education makes it a wonderful place to live. Only a major disaster like a fire can disrupt that life.

Returning to that beautiful, life means quickly eliminating the effects of fire damage in Concord to each residence. SERVPRO response teams train to take care of the obvious, physical damage left by the heat and flames of a fire, and the less obvious problems created by smoke and the soot residues left behind after the fire.

Property directly affected by heat and flames is usually beyond repair or so changed by the fire that it requires immediate disposal. Take the ceiling and interior walls after a kitchen fire as an example. The material usually is sheetrock or drywall panels, which is an affordable and excellent building material that lasts for decades, but very fragile when burned or soaked by the water used to extinguished the fire.

Because of its value, disposing and replacing it is cheaper and faster than attempting to patch and restore it. SERVPRO team members can quickly demolish affected panels, replace them, and apply a fresh coat of paint. The same restoration method applies to tiles used in drop ceilings and other materials like paneling and linoleum.

Quickly disposing fire damaged property also helps team members exert cleaning efforts only on the salvageable property. Since the residue particles are tiny, other companies might pass by an area or item that looks clean. Our technicians, however, know that these particles eventually stain almost every surface and the odors left behind can linger for years.

They begin cleaning by wiping down each surface with a dry sponge or cloth. Where needed, team members use a cleaning agent that also serves to eliminate odors. If the odors are exceptionally pungent, they also have access to chemical agents designed to cover and eliminate them. For odors that penetrated deep into the house, technicians use an ozone generator to create particles that can go just as profound to breakdown and eliminate them.

At SERVPRO of Concord, the goal is to help each homeowner return to a clean and safe home as swiftly as possible. If you and your home have been through even a small, quickly extinguished fire, contact us at (603) 225-2825 today to make sure there are no lingering effects that can spoil your life here in the Granite State.

Reliable Commercial Water Cleanup Services to Revive Your Concord Business

The role of commercial water cleanup services is to help your business return to its former state after experiencing a water damage event. Since you can never predict when such experiences are likely to take place, knowing the right actions to take is essential. Every hour your business remains closed means you are losing a lot in terms of productivity and revenue. Our team offers reliable and fast restoration services to residents of Concord, and we are here to highlight some of our operations.

When our SERVPRO technicians visit your Concord property for commercial water cleanup, there are several aspects we consider. Remember, there might be several items in the structure, and each may have differing cleaning needs. It is our work to evaluate the different cleaning needs of different items by looking at their level of exposure to high humidity or water. For instance, we may decide to clean and polish your furniture as part of the restoration process. On the other hand, electronics may require specialized attention in an attempt to return them to their preloss state.

Our SERVPRO team thoroughly inspects all the storage areas, closets, and other locations at the site for items such as clothing, photographs, and wall hangings. After that, we come up with appropriate restoration techniques for the affected items. It is also our work to return the items to their original positions once the cleaning is complete. In instances where your electronics needs further inspection that is outside our scope of operations, we may advise you to subcontract such services.

We understand that a smooth restoration process requires constant communication with our clients. Our SERVPRO team always keeps you updated in every step we undertake to make you feel involved. At the end of the job, we check whether the site has the required moisture levels and perform a walk-through to make sure everything is in order.

SERVPRO Turns Back The Clock On Small Scale Fire Damage In Bow Home

Fire damage can leave behind multiple issues. It's not uncommon for our technicians to deal with smoke, soot, foul odors, water damage and sometimes smoke webs.

SERVPRO received a call to mitigate fire damage in a Bow home. The fire itself burned a small area in the room and extinguished quickly by firefighters. The homeowner began cleaning the room and noticed wiping smeared the smoke, along with the formation of cobwebs up in the corner of the room. In addition to being difficult to remove, the soot carried a pungent odor.

On arrival at the home, our technicians contained the area and tested the smoke to determine the proper type of cleaning method. It tested as wet, which is the calling card of fires where synthetic materials burn. The smoke of this type of fire is wet, sticky, smeary and challenging to remove. Smoke webs sometimes referred to as "smoke tags" are another feature commonly seen with this type of fire, generally deposited in the somewhat cooler ceiling corners of the room.

We used extractors to remove as much excess moisture as possible and removed the charred building materials using controlled demotion techniques. The goal of SERVPRO is always to restore fire loss items for homeowners rather than have them replaced, and each item in the room was inspected for restorability potential through our proprietary methods. Air movers and dehumidifiers quickly lowered the moisture in the room to predetermined dryness standards.

Then, we cleaned the soot and smoke webs using the damp sponge method to pull up the residue and leave surfaces clean and sanitized. After we complete cleaning, that is often enough to eliminate smoke-odors from a room. When it is not, our SERVPRO techs possess certifications in the science of odor control. We have specialized equipment and methods such as thermal fogging or Hydroxyl generators to remove odors at the molecular level.

SERVPRO of Concord is available 24/7 to handle fire damage in your home of any size. Call us at (603) 225-2825, and our certified technicians arrive on-site within hours of your initial call because We’re Faster to Any Size Disaster.

Severe storms often result in torrential rainfall, which could cause flooding in homes, especially if the rain damages the roof.

Our Specialists Explain How We Address Water Damage In Your Concord Rental Home

Water Damage Our Specialists Explain How We Address Water Damage In Your Concord Rental Home If you need our services to restore your home at any time of day, including all holidays, give us a call today at (603) 225-2825.

Addressing Water Damage In A Concord Rental Home

Bathrooms in any home are built to withstand lots of moisture compared to the rest of the home. However, when the shower pan in your second-floor bathroom starts to leak, it can cause first-floor ceiling stains, rotten wood, and potential mold growth that is difficult to address on your own.

When an unexpected leak in your bathroom causes water damage in your Concord rental home, certified SERVPRO technicians are ready to come to your home 24/7 to address the damage and restore your ceiling to its previous condition.

After assessing the extent of damage with our moisture measurement tools, such as sensors, meters, and even infrared cameras, our team can get to work. Weep holes may be drilled to extract water and improve ceiling air flow during drying. If your furniture, carpet, or other items in your home have been affected by water, we can move and dry them as well. For porous surfaces such as fabric or wood, this is especially vital for preserving your possessions, preventing stains, mitigating mold growth, and keeping finishes from eroding.

There are several types of air movers that can be used for drying, though centrifugal ones are quite common and prized for their increased static pressure for a given air volume when compared to axial models. As drying goes on, our SERVPRO team can continually reposition air movers for more efficient, targeted drying of water-damaged areas in your home. For wet ceilings, air movers must be positioned directly across from instead of at 45-degree angles to target moisture and allow for optimal airflow. Precise placement calculation allows for air movers to pull moisture away from surfaces for dehumidifiers to absorb. The moist air pulled from wet surfaces is then passed over components like refrigerated coils or silica gel in industrial-grade dehumidifiers to isolate moisture and collect it for removal.

Ways To Ease Restoration Of Flood Damage In Concord

Flooding incidents can happen in different ways including rising water that gains access to the house through regular openings such as doors. Winds or falling tree branches can also open up holes in the roof or walls allowing rainwater to reach the interior of the house. All types of flooding incidents leave considerable damage, but taking some steps can ease restoration.

Standing water causes most of the problems during flood damage in Concord. Removing such water fast can help minimize the losses suffered. Apart from using sophisticated equipment for extraction, other approaches such as opening up walls might also help. Our SERVPRO technicians remove baseboards or make flood cuts to help ease removal of water trapped in wall cavities.

Flooding affects materials through saturation, which can lead to loss of structural integrity. Materials like drywall, insulation and particleboard partitions readily absorb water. Our SERVPRO technicians use moisture meters or sensors to check the level of water absorption and decide whether to dry the materials or remove them altogether. In cases where the water sits over an extended period, we opt for removal because it is not possible to restore the materials to their preloss state. We also remove porous materials such as carpets and pad to eliminate the risk of contamination because cleaning cannot remove all traces of contaminants left by floodwaters.

Flooding soils properties by dumping silt and mud, which can leave your property murky. The water may also contain biohazards such as raw sewage and other chemicals. Removing the visible and invisible soils can take time. Our SERVPRO technicians use various automated cleaning equipment to ease the task. We use pressure washers to clean mud and other heavy soils from the loss areas. We also use various multi-surface scrubbers to remove soils that adhere to surfaces. Combining such equipment with the application of professional cleaning agents allows us to clean your property to a sanitary level.

Dealing with flooding incidents is not easy. Call SERVPRO of Concord to assist with the restoration. You can reach us at (603) 225-2825 any time. We’re Faster to Any Size Disaster.

How to Handle Commercial Water Damage to Your Concord Retail Store

If your retail store has sustained water damage, leaving the cleanup to your staff can expose you to some significant risks, including structural damage and mold growth. Insurance cannot cover this damage if you could have prevented it by taking the right steps. To avoid additional damage, you need professional water removal services. Prompt and proper action recovers more items, prevents secondary damage and delivers the soonest return to re-opening.

Commercial water damage to your Concord retail store could occur due to a faulty fire sprinkler system, burst pipe or a roof leak. To prevent secondary damage, you can contact SERVPRO. We offer water damage restoration services on a 24 hour 7-day basis. We bring the latest in equipment and decades of experience to the table, and we can be at your store within a short time.

Water can ruin your stock, store fixtures, furnishings, flooring, and equipment. Without prompt removal, drying, dehumidification, and sanitizing, secondary damage adds to repair time and expense, often requiring the complete shutdown of a business. Lost customers may not return. SERVPRO franchise professionals can assess the extent of the damage, and create a comprehensive plan for extracting water and drying out your retail store.

Our technicians can use sophisticated equipment to remove water from vinyl tile flooring, which is common in retail stores. We can use portable extractors to remove water from restricted areas. The three major components of an extractor are the heater, pump, and vacuum system. The heater heats cleaning and rinsing solutions so that they penetrate a surface quickly. The pump generates pressure to spray solutions through a wand onto the surface. The vacuum removes moisture and soil from the surface and collects it in the waste recovery tank.

If your store has carpet flooring, we can use weighted extractors to force the water out of the wet carpeting. We also use dehumidification equipment to remove moisture from the air. Our technicians monitor and maintain proper humidity, temperature and moisture levels throughout the drying process to ensure complete and fast drying.

When dealing with commercial water damage, SERVPRO of Concord has the expertise and specialized equipment to make it appear “Like it never even happened.” Contact us at (603) 225-2825 for water damage restoration services in Concord, Bow, Penacook, and neighboring areas.

The Flood Damage Remediation Mystery in Concord Revealed

4/7/2019 (Permalink)

Storm Damage The Flood Damage Remediation Mystery in Concord Revealed Sometimes your flood damaged home needs help with water removal and remediation. Let SERVPRO mitigate the damage in your home.

Flood Demolition Restoration for Your Concord Home

After flooding in Concord, many homes suffer from the biological hazards which can be in the floodwaters, let alone the water itself. Your general cleanup and restoration services won’t do for biohazards. You need experts who are certified to tackle this kind of damage. Many times, your local government has regulations and restrictions to prevent just anyone from cleaning up the mess.

When you are dealing with flooding in your Concord home that contains contaminants in the water, you need immediate results. SERVPRO staff is professionally trained and knows how to handle a biohazard cleanup scene. Sometimes in situations like this, flood demolition repairs need to be done, and we are prepared for that as well.

Sometimes when there is flooding, the contaminants that get into the water can be dangerous to you and your family. This type of water, classified as category 3 water or black water, is extremely contaminated and can contain things like pesticides, raw sewage, toxic organic substances, or heavy metals. Because of the toxicity of this water, it is recommended that you and your family remain outside until restoration is complete.

SERVPRO technicians do not enter a home with black water without the proper protective gear. We likely need to remove carpeting and padding that was affected and discard it and cut out walls and drywall up past the water line and replace it with new materials. Any furniture is removed while we are restoring your home and brought to a safe location where these items can themselves be restored if possible.

After floodwaters have been removed or have receded, there is going to be silt, mud and other debris left behind which we must clean out from the home. Dehumidifiers and industrial fans assist us in completing the drying process., and all surfaces are scrubbed and cleaned with professional biocide anti-fungal and anti-microbial cleansers to ensure that your home is thoroughly disinfected.

SERVPRO of Concord wants to ensure that your home in Penacook, Concord, or Bow is clean and safe again after toxic floodwaters have invaded. Do not hesitate to call us at (603) 225-2825 so we can help restore your residence as soon as possible and put your mind at ease.

Clearing Indoor Air Quality Threats In Your Fire-Damaged Bow Home

Fires can pose significant risks to your Bow property that make it unsafe or even impossible to manage damage assessment or fire debris removal on your own. In most cases, it is already advisable to seek out the training and expertise of professionals like our fire restoration team, but this is, even more, the case when it comes to managing potential indoor air quality concerns that could cause health effects to those directly exposed. With the fast response of our professionals with air purification equipment, we can manage these threats quickly to get mitigation, reconstruction and restoration work moving as promptly as possible.

While many fire damage effects threaten your Bow home after the disaster, many of these require focused cleaning and traditional restoration efforts to overcome. Our SERVPRO professionals can appreciate the concerns of indoor air quality threats like soot and smoke particulates, chemical residues and vapors, and other contaminants. With our fast response with filtration equipment, our team can work to quickly reduce the presence of these threats in the breathable air.

One of the ideal machines that arrive with our Green Fleet to fire-damaged homes is our hydroxyl generators. These devices have a two-fold effect on environmental threats. With an onboard HEPA filter, the machine can begin trapping harmful particulates and debris in the air. These devices are also ideal for preliminary odor reduction, which can be a common effect to battle with widespread fire damages.

Ozone generators also provide this same effective two-fold air quality purification, with a greater ability to reduce harsh odors and eliminate them permanently. Often our SERVPRO professionals choose these units when people and pets are not in the home for the restoration and recovery. These machines are not safe to use in these situations.

While it might be tempting to perform a damage assessment or preliminary cleanup of your property on your own, you cannot always anticipate the indoor air quality threats. Let our SERVPRO of Concord rapid response team make all of the fire damage effects “Like it never even happened.” Give our crew a call today at (603) 225-2825.

Concord Residents Call Upon SERVPRO for Rapid Water Removal

Most of us think of flooding in rainy weather and burst pipes when people talk about water damage in Concord. However, homeowners often call in the team here at SERVPRO due to a malfunctioning clothes washer or dishwasher.

Water lines break, and hoses wear out. The result is standing water on kitchen and utility room floors, warped linoleum, and stains on the wall. How can you avoid these mishaps? Experts say homeowners who do regular inspections avoid many types of water damage issues in Concord. A good rule of thumb is once every season and before you go on vacation. 
 
This inspection should include a look at pipes under the sink and around the outside of the dishwasher, including along the door and on the floor. Check the hoses on your clothes washer and the outside of your water heater. If you notice excess condensation, drops of water, and problems with the materials of your floor or wallboards, don’t hesitate to call in a plumber. 
 
If you already see signs of water damage, call the experts here at SERVPRO.

We use the movers in conjunction with dehumidifiers, which remove moisture from the air. With our advanced training, we know how to calculate the right type and number of equipment to use to get rid of moisture in the affected space.

We can help with any water emergency at SERVPRO of Concord, (603) 225-2825. Our technicians are here to assist with all types of water damage, 24/7.
