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.

Appliance Leakage, Mold Growth, and SERVPRO® to Help Concord Homeowners

Mold Remediation Appliance Leakage, Mold Growth, and SERVPRO® to Help Concord Homeowners YIKES!! Mold in my Concord Kitchen. Time for Reliable Remediation from SERVPRO

Mold Removal Crews in Concord Discuss Problems with Dishwashers

An unnoticed water leak inside your home can be a problem that gets worse over time. It is possible that a fungus can develop without you noticing it right away, which can eventually motivate you to call in a professional mold remediation company like SERVPRO®. Your kitchen is a room in your house that contains a large number of water pipes running in and out of it. All it takes is for one of these pipes to break and spill out water that can negatively affect any organic materials inside your kitchen. Appliances like your dishwasher can also malfunction and develop a slow leak that can eventually lead to water damage and a mold infestation.

If your dishwasher malfunctions and starts to leak water, it could be difficult for you to notice the leak right away. Since your dishwasher is usually tucked inside your kitchen cabinets, water inside this dark, confined area can create a situation where mold growth occurs in your Concord home. If a fungus does form in the area where your dishwasher is placed, our SERVPRO technicians take extra measures to make sure that the contamination does not spread throughout your home. We first can come in pull out and disconnect your dishwasher so that we can assess the situation. We then determine where the water is coming from and make sure that the problem has stopped once the dishwasher is disconnected.

After we figure out the source of the water leak and make sure no more water is entering your kitchen, we deal with removing the hyphae structures the fungi have formed. The first step to mitigating the contamination is to build a plastic barrier around the affected region of the kitchen. This containment chamber helps keep spores and harmful dust particles from getting released into the air and causing contamination in other areas not close to the initial source. After your kitchen is contained with thick plastic, take steps such as scraping, soda blasting, or sanding to remove the visible contamination from the organic materials inside your home.

We can tear out non-salvageable back walls, or drill holes and inject warm air to help dry out the moisture-filled voids. Our technicians can adapt on-the-fly to situations as they become apparent — another reason to rely on our highly skilled crew.

If you ever see mold in your kitchen, call SERVPRO of Concord at (603) 225-2825 any day of the week.

When Your Items Are Damaged After A Fire In Your Bow Home Our Experts Have The Equipment To Restore It To Pre-Damage Condition

Why SERVPRO When Your Items Are Damaged After A Fire In Your Bow Home Our Experts Have The Equipment To Restore It To Pre-Damage Condition Our 24-hour services line, (603) 225-2825, is here for you, 365 days a year.

Why SERVPRO Uses Ultrasonic Technology To Clean Sooty Items Recovered From Fire Damaged Homes In Bow

Our goal in any job is to make the customer's Bow area home exactly “Like it never even happened.” Many disasters destroy more than the structural framework and severely impact the contents. Decades ago, many of the items lost in a fire could not become usable again, no matter how much cleaning occurred. Now, we have the technical ability to restore many things that homeowners would need to replace.

We take pride in explaining to our customers why SERVPRO uses ultrasonic technology to restore the majority of their items from soot contamination that happens as part of fire damage in Bow. We use this technology because it is suitable for so many different things. The main requirements that an object must meet include its ability to become submerged in water and afterward, our ability to dry it quickly.

In a similar manner to hydrogen peroxide that cleans debris from a wound, the bubbles produced by the intense vibrations in our ultrasonic machine lift foreign matter and substances away from the surface of anything placed inside the basket and submerged in the water. This process can take a bit of time when surfaces hold a thick layer or the item contains extensive grooves and other indentations, but the results are much less labor-intensive and more uniform than work conducted manually.

Our Fire and Smoke Restoration Technician (FRST) understands the stress families experience when not only their home is affected by fire damage, but their most prized possessions seem lost forever. Knowing that we can restore both keepsakes and everyday items for you makes our work incredibly satisfying from both a professional and personal level. Our work in restoring your belongings with our ultrasonic machine is enhanced by the way we inventory these items as we pack them up for transporting to our facility, eliminating losses and ensuring that we make a notation detailing any newly discovered damage.

SERVPRO of Concord wants to help families in the surrounding area, including Penacook, to recover as quickly and as painlessly as possible when fire damage causes ruin to their homes and belongings. Our 24-hour services line, (603) 225-2825, is here for you, 365 days a year.

Do You Struggle With Fire Damage in Bow After a Heating Unit Fire?

1/20/2019 (Permalink)

Fire Damage Do You Struggle With Fire Damage in Bow After a Heating Unit Fire? Space heaters are often necessary when it gets cold. But they can cause fire damage when they are not attended. Contact SERVPRO for remediation.

Cleaning and Removing Space Heater Fire Damage in Bow Homes

At this time of year, Bow residents are more interested in staying warm and saving money than worrying about a disaster like a fire. Cold nights and distracted homeowners though, can be a dangerous combination.
 
A space heater is a useful, money-saving way for residents to stay warm. The fire damage in Bow that can result from leaving one unattended needs a professional restoration team like SERVPRO to clean the damage and put everything back together.
 
In most space heater fires, the damage begins with the floor where the device failed or tipped over. Because of this, the physical damage from heat and flames results in more property that our technicians dispose of, rather than clean and remove smoke or soot damage. Depending on how long the fire burned, the damage can extend to the subfloor, and require more demolition and disposal. If there was a carpet or rug over the floor, it requires disposal as well. Team members can replace the sub-floor and floorboards if required.
 
Next, SERVPRO technicians examine nearby walls and ceilings for damage. Since the fire started at a lower point, more floor trim and drywall panels are physically affected. Team members remove the damaged panels for disposal, and then an inspector checks the wall framing behind them.
 
If they discover scorch marks on the wall framing, then technicians have options depending on the severity of the burned material. For surface damage only, they can use hand or powered sanders to remove the burned material without affecting the structural integrity. Covering the wall framing with new drywall only hides the physical marks. The burned material eventually begins to exude smoke odors and then the entire piece, and any new drywall soon requires replacing as well.
 
Every fire can be devastating to a homeowner. At SERVPRO of Concord, our goal is to restore every home to its pre-damage condition. If you are working through the results from a recent fire, contact us today at (603) 225-2825 to schedule an inspection or a service call from one of our teams.

Drying by Water Removal and Evaporation Are Key to Restoration in Concord Condos and Homes

Water Damage Drying by Water Removal and Evaporation Are Key to Restoration in Concord Condos and Homes How Do You Spell "SERVPRO" for Moisture and Water Removal in Concord?

Water Drying Removal Technicians In Concord Explain How To Create The Best Environment For Drying

Any time objects get wet inside your townhome, your building materials, and contents can get ruined. If water drying removal does not get performed by a professional company like SERVPRO, then the problems can quickly get worse. If items stay saturated, they can lose their structural integrity and degrade. If organic substances stay wet for more than 48 hours, fungi can develop and ruin more of your building materials and contents. Elevated humidity levels can also cause secondary damage if water drying does not get completed promptly.
 
Our SERVPRO technicians know that time is always of the essence when it comes to moisture damage mitigation. We always respond quickly after we receive your call for a water drying removal project in Concord. We immediately begin following through with steps that are designed to remove all moisture inside any building. When rapidly drying out a structure, there are a few main principles that our team always follows.
 
First, we use extraction equipment to remove water while it is in liquid form. Pulling out water right after it gets inside your townhouse is 500 times more efficient than just drying out building materials. We have specialized extraction tools that we can attach to our heavy-duty truck-mounted extractors and use for several different situations.
 
The next important phase is to create airflow and speed up evaporation. We have access to high-velocity air movers that are designed specifically for structural drying. The air movers get placed so that they push air in a counterclockwise direction and speed up the natural evaporation process.
 
Once moisture gets removed from carpet and upholstery, it does not just disappear; it gets put into the air as water vapor. The dehumidification stage removes moisture from the air so that raised humidity levels cannot cause secondary damage — we use established measuring goals to achieve comfortable RH relative humidity levels indoors.
 
The last principle our SERVPRO technicians follow when removing moisture from your structural components is to control the temperature in the area we are drying. Warm air is essential for the drying process and maintaining temperatures between 70 and 90 degrees Fahrenheit can help speed up evaporation. If you ever need rapid structural drying at your residence, call SERVPRO of Concord at (603) 225-2825 any day of the week.

Your Concord Attic Is The Perfect Environment For Mold To Grow

12/19/2018 (Permalink)

Mold Remediation Your Concord Attic Is The Perfect Environment For Mold To Grow Give our SERVPRO of Concord rapid response team a call anytime you find mold growth in your home.

Failing Attic Insulation Can Create Mold In Your Concord Home

The winter months can often prove harsh on Concord homes. With heavier snowfalls expected year after year, the strain this puts on a roof and its supports can create vulnerabilities and damage over time. More pressing than this, however, is the insulation inside of the property in the attic space. When this gets thin in places for any number of reasons, the heat from the inside can create a hotspot on the roof that allows moisture penetration from the melting snow. With a warm and damp attic space, conditions like mold growth can develop over just a few days.

Many owners are not aware that there is mold damage in their Concord attic until it became severe enough to spread to the lower levels of the property. Contending with this situation requires a fast response, as the colony has already spread beyond the attic space and into a floor beneath it, exposing the occupants of the house to spores and debris, and threatening the integrity of materials used to host the spreading colony. Our SERVPRO professionals can help to contain this situation and remove the organism from the house.

Once our team arrives at your address, it is critical to understand the full spread of the damage. We put on full personal protective equipment to keep our SERVPRO technicians safe as we identify the spread of the damage and where containment measures need to get installed and operated to keep active spores from seating elsewhere in the home.

While reconstruction and repair are ultimately necessary for both the attic space and the damaged roof that allowed the moisture penetration, this is not the primary focus for our team. Our professionals work to dry up the affected areas thoroughly so we can prevent these areas from remaining habitable for ever-present mold spores in the environment.

The professionals sent to your mold emergency have the full measure of our industry-leading equipment and advanced training in mold remediation to make this process as seamless as possible for our customers. Give our SERVPRO of Concord rapid response team a call anytime you find mold growth in your home at (603) 225-2825.

Using A Injectidry System After A Flood In Concord

The weather is an unpredictable entity. You never know when a massive storm might hit you. This situation can result in a tremendous amount of water that can enter your establishment. Flood damage can be very detrimental to your hardwood floor. It can take forever to get rid of all the water and to repair the floor. Plus, it can take hours to mop or flush out excess water, and the longer the water stays on your floor, wall, and ceiling, the more damage that it can cause. The worst part is that flood water comes from the sewage system so there are a lot of toxins, chemicals, bacterias, and other contaminants that can be hazardous to your home.

Luckily, flood damage in the Concord area does not have to be a total nightmare. There is advanced equipment out there that can save your hardwood floor. For example, the injectidry tool is designed to get rid of moisture and water from the floor. The vac-it panel in the injectidry can draw out moisture that is deeply embedded in the hardwood floor and padding. It can also extract water from the wall and ceiling to allow optimal drying time. It puts out consistent pressure to dry out wet materials such as headers, plaster walls, tiles, and subfloor. As for difficult wet area like plaster walls, the injector dry can utilize negative pressure to extract the water. Because of its innovation and efficiency, it is often used by water restoration specialists to get the job done.

The injectidry requires extreme skills and experience to operate efficiently. The SERVPRO technicians are trained to utilize such advanced equipment to extract moisture from flood damage. The SERVPRO water restoration experts have used the injectidry system for many years. It takes high speed and accuracy to extract the maximum amount of moisture before any real damage can happen, which is why it is essential to call in the experts.

Professional Mitigation for Flooding in Your Concord Home

Whenever disaster strikes your Concord home, you want to make sure that the items and contents within the house get protected from the substantial risks present. Within a brief period, circumstances like flooding can spread throughout the property and affect not only these contents you wish to protect from harm but also countless structural components and materials that could oversaturate and ultimately fail. Taking care of the situation quickly is critical, but that requires advanced equipment used by experienced and highly trained technicians like ours.

Once flood damages have affected your Concord home, your entire property is at the mercy of a timeline where the situation continually gets worse for the structure and the items inside of it. Immediately, materials begin to soak up pooling water as they become exposed. Throughout a day, surfaces like drywall can become so overly saturated that they distort and erode. Fast action is necessary to prevent this degradation of your home. 

Our SERVPRO professionals have the industry-leading equipment to make a difference. We strive to have advanced technology designed to make water restoration and mitigation more effective and efficient, which saves you money and time but also makes the job easier for our experienced technicians on-site. From the moment that we arrive, our team begins by assessing the damages your home has sustained and determining which of the extraction tools is necessary to overcome the excess. For substantial damages, our gas-powered pumps and truck-mounted pumps can remove water fast. 

Drying the area is a critical component to slowing the damage before official restoration work begins. Our technicians utilize air movers to force moisture out of saturated materials and dehumidifiers to collect vaporized dampness and remove it from the area. Both of these machines integrate dry heat back into the environment, improving the efficiency and speed of overall drying efforts. 

Our equipment plays a big role in the work that we do for our customers when recovering from flooding. You can count on our SERVPRO of Concord emergency response team to help preserve the structure and contents of your home with our quick response and advanced equipment. Give us a call today at (603) 225-2825.
