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.

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.

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.

Fire Damage Restoration Services After a House Fire in Concord

3/21/2019 (Permalink)

Why SERVPRO 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.

Mold Damage Cleaning in Bow

3/21/2019 (Permalink)

Why SERVPRO Mold Damage Cleaning in Bow  SERVPRO technicians have the professional equipment to remediate mold damage found in attics and crawlspaces.

Mold Damage Remediation for Hard to Reach Spaces of Your Home

The township of Bow is in a great location. We are far enough inland to usually miss the worst of the coastal weather and just close enough to larger cities like Concord to enjoy small-town life without losing any of the benefits of a larger city.

Being a picturesque, small town does not protect Bow from mold damage, however. With decades of experience in New Hampshire, SERVPRO is ready to defend our community from this quiet disaster that still causes millions in cleaning, repair, and replacement costs every year. Since our area has a relatively high level of humidity throughout the year, our office makes use of our extensive inventory of chemical cleaners and equipment to eliminate the threat mold presents.

When it comes to damage, most of what mold spores affect is structural property. In older homes like many that make up our community, mold can go undetected for years. The many crawlspaces and dead spaces created by renovation over two centuries are difficult to get into and examine for mold or insect infestations.

For areas like this, SERVPRO technicians use an anti-microbial agent combined with a fogging machine. This device forces the chemical cleaner into small regions and wood joints where a spray would be unable to penetrate. The fog begins killing the mold spores on contact. The few that do survive retreat to an inert state and present no threat to a home or its residents.

In attics and other more easily accessible areas, we use a hand pump or powered sprayers to deploy liquid anti-microbial agents. As with the fog, the chemicals begin killing the mold on contact.

If the mold has expanded into the walls and other support structures, we are licensed to remove and replace posts and support beams up to the point where a new roof may be needed. Work such as installing new, interior wall frames or ceiling supports we accomplish in a few days, leading up to a couple of weeks, depending on the size of the home.

Taking care of our community is the top priority for SERVPRO of Concord. As a locally owned office, the homes we clean and repair are our friends and neighbors. If you need us, call (603) 225-2825 today.

Balancing Expectations After Commercial Fire Damage In Bow

The damages left by a fire at your workplace may disrupt regular operations, but perhaps the most pressing issue is the expectations from different parties affected by the blaze. Your customers want you to resume serving them immediately, while your employees could be traumatized by the event thus requiring a few days off. You also need to liaise with the property owner to ensure the restoration done does not lead to friction later on. We offer professional restoration services in Bow that can help you meet all these needs.

Depending on the intensity of the blaze, restoring commercial fire damage in Bow can take days or weeks. Giving your regular employees time off as you handle the restoration can help them cope with the loss. Since we send an entire team of restorers from SERVPRO, it is easy for your employees to take days off. Our team handles the core restoration tasks such as cleanup of residues, debris removal and refinishing, as well as mundane tasks such as moving items and rearranging spaces to their preloss state.

Working quickly to fix the damage helps you resume serving your customers as usual. It can also help save costs.

We also use different equipment like HEPA vacuums to clean residues from surfaces, and self-propelled scissor lifts to ease access to different sections in a house including high walls and ceilings.

Fire can leave severe damage to structural components necessitating replacement. Apart from the extra costs involved whenever replacements are necessary, there is also a need to involve the property owner to ensure you meet expectations. Our SERVPRO technicians help in different ways. First, we do a thorough inspection to unearth every possible issue including problems in the HVAC system. We also prioritize restorative cleaning over replacement where possible saving unnecessary costs. We also work closely with the parties involved including the property owner and insurance adjusters.

Don't Wait For Water Damage to Strike Your Bow Home

Water Damage Don't Wait For Water Damage to Strike Your Bow Home Stop water damage issues in their tracks. Call SERVPRO before any damage accumulates.

Water Cleanup and Future Proofing your Home Against Further Damages in Bow

When excess water enters your home, it can saturate furnishing causing stains. Although the priority is to get your property dry as quickly as possible, it is also vital to take preventative measures to ensure there are no further issues after the event. A lot of odor or fungi related issues come from a water spill that has not been remediated the first time correctly. Taking an approach that accounts for both primary and secondary damages is essential to making a property problem "Like it never even happened."

Rooms in need of water cleanup in Bow should be treated with professional care and attention. Sometimes that means placing physical barriers to ensure that damages do not contaminate other areas of the home. At other times, it is necessary to take measures against future damages. SERVPRO uses technicians with IICRC qualifications to achieve both.

Water naturally migrates from wet spots to dry ones. In a home environment, that could mean migration into cavities, under fittings or absorbing into insulation and upholstery. However, the same process can be used to dry an area effectively. By creating an airflow in a controlled area, water can be drawn out of fabrics and ensuring they are dry within and without.

In dealing with carpets, the standard SERVPRO procedure is to remove the carpet along with the subfloor mat. Subfloor mats absorb water rapidly and in the majority of cases must be demolished if excess quantities of moisture have been absorbed. Carpets, on the other hand, have a strong chance of being restored to preloss conditions using techniques like floating- where a wet carpet is attached to a rapid air mover and dried by running hot air through it at speed.

When your SERVPRO technicians replace the carpet, they can apply an anti-microbial treatment on the underside of the carpet to ensure that a reduction in mold or mildew buildup. We can also use anti-microbial paints to help guard against moisture absorbed by walls or fittings does not go on to become a severe secondary issue.

Are You Making These Types of Fire Damage Remediation Mistakes in Bow?

3/6/2019 (Permalink)

Why SERVPRO Are You Making These Types of Fire Damage Remediation Mistakes in Bow? When your home is facing fire damage due to candles, it is time to contact the certified and experienced SERVPRO team to remediate the damage.

Safe Candle Usage and Why SERVPRO is the Right Choice for Fire Damage in Your Bow Home

Candles are a great way to liven up any room in your Bow home by adding some warm light and fresh scents. However, if you do not use them carefully, they can also create devastation. Understanding the dangers of candle use and knowing how to use them safely helps to prevent a tragedy in your residence.

Fire damage to your Bow home is not something that you should try to handle on your own. You not only have the damage from the flames, but also settled smoke and soot, plus smoke smells, to clean. That is why SERVPRO should be called in for help. With our experience and trained staff, we can restore your home in a timely fashion to prevent additional damage.

Overall, fires from candles are not as destructive or prevalent as the ones caused by kitchen or heater incidents. More than half of home fires related to candles begin when the candle was placed too near combustible material like a drape or a curtain. Some of the most common items which are ignited from candles are cabinets, bedding or mattresses, clothing, or blinds and curtains.

SERVPRO techs must deodorize all odors left behind, besides restore the damage done. Odor molecules are quite volatile and vaporize easily. They dissolve and carry odor vapors to your nose when humidity levels are high. Therefore, odors in humid air seem strong than those in dry air. High temperatures also let odors penetrate surfaces more easily. Weather conditions, therefore, impact how evident odors are and require us to be even more thorough when removing them.

Taking precautions while using candles can help keep you and your family safe. Always place candles on stable furniture where pets and children cannot knock them over, and do not fall asleep when a candle is burning. Before lighting, trim wicks to ¼ inch, and use holders that are noncombustible to catch the dripping wax.

Keep hair and clothing away from an open flame and do not use candles near paper, holiday decorations, flammable liquids, blinds, books, curtains, lampshades, bedding, clothing, and other combustibles. If there are any compressed air tanks in the home, do not use the candles near them, either.

SERVPRO of Concord can come to the rescue when your home in Bow, Penacook, or Concord suffers from fire damage. You can call us anytime at (603) 225-2825 when tragedy strikes so we can help you make your home look as if it never happened.

Don't Let A Microburst Cause Flood Damage To Your Home In Concord

2/13/2019 (Permalink)

Storm Damage Don't Let A Microburst Cause Flood Damage To Your Home In Concord We are available 24/7 to assist you, and one of our certified experts can begin the process of returning your home to normal.

SERVPRO Turns Around Flood Damage From Microburst In Concord

A microburst is a weather phenomenon that continues to be frustrating because of the rapid setup and quick moving nature of these storms; they are both difficult to predict and track for meteorologists. Common occurrences during this type of weather event include dangerous downdraft winds of up to 80MPH, localized heavy rains that can cause flood damage and hail.

SERVPRO took on the task of restoring the storm damage in a Concord attic. The homeowner contacted us shortly after the storm had passed and the roof had temporary patching applied to stop any further water from entering. Our technicians immediately got to work pinpointing the problem areas. Roof damage occurred from high winds and hail, which allowed water to leak into the attic space.

Plastic sheeting was used as containment around the attic entry to minimize transference of dust to the rest of the home during cleanup. SERVPRO technicians determined the fiberglass insulation would not need to be replaced and used insulation vacuums to remove and hold for reuse and allow for complete drying of the sheetrock underneath. This attic was small, so the team chose to use smaller but powerful, portable wet/dry vacuums that eliminated the standing water quickly, while the technicians determined the sheetrock had not sustained damage that would require replacement and there was no danger of sagging if it dried in place.

Air movers and dehumidifiers were used to dry the affected side of the attic quickly; technicians used moisture detectors to ensure all trace amounts of moisture were undetectable before wiping down with a fast-drying antifungal to inhibit mold growth and reapplying the insulation.

Whether the flood damage is a little or a lot, SERVPRO of Concord has the knowledge and resources to restore your home “Like it never even happened.” Call (603) 225-2825 we are available 24/7 to assist you, and one of our certified experts can begin the process of returning your home to normal.
