What Should I Do When Flooding Affects my Construction Site?

SERVPRO Equipment and technicians Call SERVPRO for any type of water removal and remediation efforts you need. We can get you back to work in no time.

SERVPRO is a Concord Restoration Service for Commercial Flood Damage and Loss Recovery.

What is Commercial Flood Mitigation?

A construction site can contain expensive equipment as well as metal and concrete building materials. When flooding occurs, this equipment is at a high risk of sustaining damage from water exposure, which could present itself as rusting or as mold damage to the building's structure. As a foreman, you may need to act quickly in the face of flooding by using a restoration service in Concord to avoid permanent losses to equipment or the structure itself. SERVPRO water restoration technicians (WRT) can perform essential mitigation at a building site to ensure that damages to scaffolding, equipment, and concrete structures are kept to a minimum. We are available for emergencies twenty-four hours a day and, as a local service, can arrive on-site within four hours of notification of loss. 

How can you prevent rusting to metals during flooding?

Rusting of scaffolding or equipment and machinery can be an unfortunate by-product of commercial flood damage in your Concord building site. The most effective method of mitigation is to remove floodwaters using an electric submersible pump before establishing humidity controls to prevent the upper areas of the structure from adversely affected. By ensuring that the work-site is dry, we can perform the crucial steps to avoid water exposure from affecting metals. The next step is to ensure that corrosion does not occur by applying an industrial rusticide directly onto vulnerable materials to remain resistant to lasting damage. 

What steps can I take to avoid water losses at a construction site?

- Inventory any equipment that can be removed from the site before flooding occurs

- Use a restorer with access to external storage for any material that does get wet

- Dry out the affected area quickly and establish humidity controls

If flooding threatens the equipment and scaffolding of your construction site, contact SERVPRO of Concord at (603) 225-2825.

Who Assesses Odor Buildup in Concord Stockrooms?

business stockroom with shelves and boxes Many items can get damaged when your commercial stockroom suffers from water damage. Contact SERVPRO for water removal.

SERVPRO Technicians Are Experts at Finding the Source of an Unpleasant Odor and Performing Commercial Water Restoration in your Business.

Why Does My Stockroom Smell Musty?

The stockrooms and storage areas of Concord businesses can often suffer water-related problems over-time. Since these areas are infrequently visited and not open to customers, it may feel like there is less urgency when odors strike. Musty odors commonly occur as a result of water leaks or rainwater intrusion. The source of these damp spots may not be noticeable without a thorough inspection of the affected area. SERVPRO technicians can perform a professional inspection of your stockroom and put in place a drying strategy.

How can I remedy water odors on my business premises?

Reaching out to a commercial water restoration company in Concord can help you address your issue's root cause. Air fresheners may be a useful stopgap solution. These need changing every few weeks, and there is a strong likelihood of an untreated water problem causing damage over time. These damages can be permanent if left long enough, while the odor may become more potent and overpower air-fresheners or affect your indoor air quality.

How can I stop water odors at the source?

- Remove items that are covering walls or ceilings

- Visually inspect for any signs of discoloration or wetness

- Place a dehumidifier where odor is strongest

Do water odors disappear by themselves?

Changing seasons and temperatures are more or less noticeable, but they generally do not make odors disappear completely. To effectively remediate odors, you need to address the source of the problem and dry out any damp spots. SERVPRO can inspect and dry the wall cavities to ensure that your stockroom returns to its preloss condition. To address indoor air quality, we can place premium air filtration devices that can remove particles as small as 0.3 microns from an indoor environment.

If you need help dealing with stubborn odors in your business, contact SERVPRO of Concord at (603) 225-2825.

SERVPRO Ensures Commercial Water Cleanup in Your Concord Office is Addressed Quickly to Reduce Damage

When you arrive at your office to find out that a pipe burst, it adds a great deal of stress to your plate. However, having the experts help with restoration ensures your business is back up and running sooner than later. The restoration process often includes securing your contents and moving them to a dry area so mitigation can get underway.

How Do Skilled Technicians Rid My Office of Moisture?
Successful commercial water cleanup in Concord involves more than removing all visible fluids. Your office has carpeting, furnishings, and small cavities where water migrates, leaving behind notable damage and the potential for mold and mildew growth. Our team of skilled technicians at SERVPRO brings along powerful equipment to tackle the job, including:

    •    Submersible and truck-mounted pumps that allow us to remove hundreds to thousands of gallons of water.
    •    Light wand technology for the removal of excess water and moisture from carpets and the padding below.
    •    Moisture sensors allow us to detect moisture left behind in soft materials, while moisture meters help us to monitor the total moisture content in various materials so that we can determine when the structure is thoroughly dry.
    •    Antimicrobial agents are applied to fight against the development of microorganisms and bacteria that cause foul odors.

There are some situations where DIY mopping from your maintenance crew can get the job done. However, the real issue lies in failing to locate all areas of hidden moisture where damage multiplies. SERVPRO is Faster to Any Size Disaster, and we work hard to restore your office space to normal quickly so that you can resume daily operations.

SERVPRO of Concord is available whenever you need help with high-quality commercial water cleanup. Give our team a phone call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week at (603) 225-2825, and we send out a team as soon as possible to begin the assessment.

Concord Tax Prep Office Needs Commercial Water Cleanup

When tax season rolls around, tax preparation companies count on a brisk business and not dealing with commercial water cleanup.

A local Concord tax filing service needed commercial water cleanup after a pipe break overnight saturated one of their offices. Since this type of business is seasonal, the property owner wanted to reopen as fast as possible.

Immediate Scoping for Water Loss
One of the first actions taken by the techs is to scope the property and determine areas of excessive moisture. The advanced detection equipment lets the techs see behind walls and under floors, so the appropriate steps get taken for opening areas for extraction and drying, such as removing baseboards when elevated moisture gets detected behind them.

Extraction Techniques
SERVPRO technicians found the glue-down carpet delaminated, and it required removal and disposal. The technicians did several passes with their extraction equipment to pull up as much moisture as possible with their portable pumps to expedite the drying process.

Protection of Items During Mitigation
Because elevated humidity can ruin paper and some electronics, SERVPRO technicians moved boxes of IRS forms and computer equipment out of the loss area to ensure those items were not affected by the moisture.

Drying So the Business Can Reopen Quickly
When SERVPRO mitigates water loss, their goal is to get the business open and running again as fast as possible. Through the use of multiple air movers, they can bring down the ambient moisture levels in the office rapidly and get the building dried.

Final Touches
After a water loss, it is vital to restore the property to sanitary standards as well as remove any residual water odors. The techs wiped down all surfaces with their professional-grade cleaning agents. To ensure no foul scents remained, the application of low volume fogging uses a heated fogging solution that penetrates areas and neutralizes any odorous molecules.

SERVPRO of Concord at (603) 225-2825 is available to help local properties with commercial water cleanup needs. The certified technicians can clean and dry the loss area and make it “Like it never even happened.”

Make a Resolution to Better Prepare for Disasters Needing Commercial Water Removal in Your Concord Business 

SERVPRO realizes that the demands of running a business keep business owners and managers in Concord busy. We also understand that unexpected disasters can force a company to falter or even fail. We want business owners in our area to succeed and encourage each one to become better prepared for such crises. We can help your business survive a disaster by decreasing the time it takes to recover.  

Many disasters that affect businesses require commercial water removal in Concord as part of the mitigation process. Our READY Profile Plan helps businesses of all sizes and types, from small storefronts to major manufacturing facilities, service providers like gymnasiums, restaurants, and schools, to speed up the restoration work. This Plan, once completed, cuts away the time needed to communicate the scope of the problem, as well as help us in preparing to serve your business during a crisis.  

Restoration to dry conditions after a water leak, flood or fire must happen for other mitigation efforts to achieve their full effectiveness. Damp conditions destroy many building materials while also providing an ideal environment for unwanted lifeforms like vermin and microbes. Our goal is to remove any water present in your business after a disaster. Having a Plan with us helps us immensely in setting up our machinery.  

When leaks in your plumbing caused the problem, we can refer to the Plan's details. Entryways and other openings play a role in how we position our extraction machines, air movers, and dehumidifiers. Placing these machines in specific ways facilitates peak performance, ensuring they dry structure, contents, and the air, all at optimal rates.  

Water removal does include extracting water with pumps and other direct removal machinery. We use a range of devices to both remove moisture and measure the steadily decreasing moisture throughout your business. We recommend starting the new year prepared for disasters by calling SERVPRO of Concord at (603) 225-2825 to complete your business' READY Profile Plan.

Steps to Take During Commercial Water Removal in a Concord College

10/7/2019 (Permalink)

A room with a bunch of sinks, yellow ceiling and checked floors. We know more than just the basics when it comes to your Concord water damage.

SERVPRO will take on your Concord water damage no matter how deep the water gets.

Several disasters can occur in a college, including water damage. Since many buildings exist in an institution of higher learning, the dangers of water damage vary. For example, a water intrusion problem in the administrative block can differ from one that occurs in a gymnasium or lecture hall. Students and staff members can face various risks during a water loss.

Water can ruin the structures and contents of the affected buildings, and slips and falls can happen because of wet and slippery floors. Performing commercial water removal in a Concord college can prevent the risk of electric shock and health risks from contamination in the water. It can also prevent secondary damage such as rotting, oxidation, and mold growth. To clean up and dry the affected areas quickly and adequately, you can work with a professional restoration company such as SERVPRO.

In the unfortunate event of water damage at a college, notifying the facility manager is vital. The operations manager can take the following steps while waiting for professionals to arrive:

  • Determine the source of the flooded water. It could be from sink overflows, broken pipes, or other issues.
  • Stop the source of the water leak.
  • Determine if there are any other risks at the facility like electrical hazards, slip hazards, and other injury risks.
  • Communicate to students and staff at the college about the disaster.

When we arrive, we can handle the job efficiently since we have advanced equipment and experience. We can inspect the affected buildings thoroughly to document the water category. Our restorers can document primary damage, pre existing damage, and potential secondary damage. Preexisting destruction can include rotting flooring and peeling paintwork.

We can also determine which materials are salvageable and the level of personal protective measures to take. We use moisture detection devices to find the location of saturation. We can inspect everywhere the water could have moved through the buildings. Our SERVPRO crew can complete the cleanup and drying process quickly to prevent secondary damage. We can also apply disinfectants like formaldehydes, phenols, quaternaries, chlorines, and alcohols to affected areas such as floors and walls to kill microbes.

After a water loss incident, you need prompt, professional aid. SERVPRO of Concord can help restore your college to preloss state. Call us at (603) 225-2825. We can deal with the water loss to make it “Like never even happened.”

We Make Your Bow Building Safe Again After A Fire

8/19/2019 (Permalink)

Pictured is an air scrubber that recycles the interior air through HEPA and activated carbon system to capture the airborne particles and the odors.

Challenges When Fire Damages Your Bow Day Care Center

Keeping the space safe for vulnerable little one is the charge after a fire loss in you Bow Day Care Center. The families who depend on you and your staff for loving care now look to you for answers. They need assurance that safeguards are in place to prevent another fire. The certainty that the residues, odors, and debris left after the blaze can wholly and safely be removed is another understandable demand. We can help with the cleanup.

Small Fires Can Feel Like Big Problems

Although the minor blaze in an office of your Bow Day Care Center confined fire damage away from the children's areas, the risk of spreading residues and odors worries you and your staff. Contacting us for advice and mitigation and remediation services helps you answer the concerns of your small charges' families and should meet the requirements of licensing agencies. 

Containment of the Remediation Work Space

To keep the unaffected spaces in the day care free of hazardous residues during the cleanup, SERVPRO partitions the fire site off. We use heavy plastic sheeting and add an air scrubbing system to accomplish several goals. The negative pressure generated by the air scrubber seals the edges of the partition. The suction pulls the contaminated air in the office through HEPA filters and then vents it to the outside. Our technicians wear personal protective equipment while working to clear the office of all residues. This also prevents the toxic debris from the fire from spreading on our employees' clothing or shoes. 

Proprietary Cleaners and Disinfectants Safe for Use Around Children

The last thing SERVPRO wants when completing a fire damage project is switching the fear of exposure to fire residues with concerns about the hazards of cleaning and disinfecting agents. We are always upgrading our products to strike a balance between effectiveness and safety. Today botanically derived cleaners and disinfectants deliver the results needed in the restoration agency while being safe to use around pets and children.

Count on SERVPRO of Concord to use industry best practices and innovative new products to keep you and your littlest customers safe after fire damage. Contact us at (603) 225-2825 for a fire damage assessment and project plan.

Commercial fire damage restoration for Restaurants in Bow

8/13/2019 (Permalink)

We can sweep in and take away all your fire fears in Bow as soon as they appear.

Let SERVPRO come in and sweep you off of your fire in damage in Bow.

A busy restaurant kitchen is full of potential fire causing hazards, including naked flames, butane gas, oils, animal fats, and other flammable materials. As a business manager, your responsibility in the immediate aftermath of a fire is to get your commercial services back up and running with as little loss of revenue as possible. In places that serve food, professional restoration services are even more essential to ensure that health and safety standards are met.  

A restaurant manager with commercial fire damage in Bow, you may find that soot, smoke, odors, and surface damages are too extensive to be restored by your regular cleaning contract. SERVPRO provides a commercial service to businesses with trained fire restoration technicians that know what to do to get your restaurant back to its preloss condition. We can dispatch a team of trained technicians alongside an experienced crew chief to ensure your business can re-open as quickly as possible. 

Larger commercial recovery operations after a fire are usually affected by two factors that affect cleanability. Impingement is a process where increasing air temperature creates air perpetual air movement during a fire. This phenomenon is why smoke creates a billowing effect during a fire. In terms of restoration, impingement causes smoke residues to contact vertical surfaces at high speed resulting in a splatter effect. In an enclosed environment, like a kitchen, heat can also cause the finish on appliances to melt, char, or bubble. 

SERVPRO fire restoration technicians can use mechanical cleaning equipment, like air whips, to loosen the heavy soot caused by impingement before dissolving them in oil-based solvents for a clean finish. Appliances may require a more concentrated effort using corrosive cleaning agents to remove both finish and soiling. The resulting clean equipment can then be refinished to get your contents back to their pre-fire condition. 

Temporary closures can have a significant impact on revenues, especially during busier times of the year. Contact SERVPRO of Concord at (603) 225-2825 for a commercial recovery team.

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.

SERVPRO can extract the standing water from your business quickly to reduce damages and disruptions. We are available 24/7 so don't hesitate to call.

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.

Seeking professional help makes it easier to deal with the different aspects of fire damage.

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. For example, smoke residues are acidic so cleaning them from surfaces fast prevents secondary damages like staining. By working in teams, our SERVPRO crew can deliver results faster. 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.

Seeking professional help makes it easier to deal with the different aspects of fire damage. Call SERVPRO of Concord to assist. You can reach us at (603) 225-2825 any time.

Professional Fire Odor Removal For Your Hotel In Bow

The internet has numerous suggestions, ideas, tips, and fanciful instructions about dealing with odors on your property after a fire.

However, this often causes additional problems and ends with you calling a professional regardless.


You need to understand that calling a fire odor removal specialist in Bow provides you with the highest chances of successfully removing unwanted odors. Keep in mind that every fire damage situation is entirely different. Often requiring a different solution, depending on your specific situation. Someone getting lucky by using vinegar, baking soda, dry coffee grounds, and Febreze to remove smoke odors on their property does not mean that their solution is going to remove smoke odors from furniture in your hotel.

You can safely ignore most of what you read on the internet about removing smoke odors from your property. Save yourself a headache, your time and money are more valuable. Stop chasing someone’s step-by-step instructions and avoid causing secondary damages that drive your guests away.

Hit With Commercial Fire Damage? SERVPRO Has Got Your Back

Our technicians have the certifications and training to take care of your warehouse and restore it "Like it never even happened."

Working with Professional Restorers after Commercial Fire Damage in Bow Helps

There is no convenient time for a fire, but if you are prepared, you can deal with the aftermath better. In case of a warehouse fire, a lot needs to be done to restore the property to its preloss condition. Apart from removing charred remains of the contents that once occupied the expansive space, the structure also requires cleaning and any damaged areas fixed. Working with restorers can help reduce the cost of your claim by minimizing the number of items that need replacement. Knowing the right restorers in Bow before a fire happens is an important aspect of preparedness.

There are several aspects of fire damage in Bow, so restoration takes different approaches. Seeing everything covered in soot and other fire residues might tempt you to throw every item out and replace them with new ones. However, the cost involved is prohibitive of such actions. You can reduce the costs through resurfacing of some items. Common ways to resurface affected items include repainting, refinishing or covering upholstered surfaces afresh. The cheapest option though is cleaning. When our SERVPRO technicians visit your affected property, we do a thorough inspection to establish which areas can be cleaned thus reducing the costs you incur.

Cleaning a large building such as a warehouse is tedious work. Lack of the right equipment or workforce further compounds the level of difficulty. When you call SERVPRO, our team has the necessary tools such as high-pressure washers which clear smoke residue from walls faster than using brushes. We also have scissor lift platforms which enable our technicians to reach various sections of the structure for close-quarter cleaning or inspection.

Because of the different contents in a warehouse, the fire residues left might not be uniform. Our SERVPRO technicians use different approaches to address every type of residue. The primary method is the agitation of affected surfaces. We might also rely on chemical action by applying professional cleaning products that dissolve, emulsify, bleach or oxidize the residue. Do you also know that the temperature of the cleaning product when it is applied to a surface affects the outcome?

Why SERVPRO Is Not Missing The Mark When It Comes To Commercial Fire Damage In Bow

9/24/2018 (Permalink)

Small businesses in Bow can suffer drastically when commercial fire damage strikes.

Commercial Fire Damage From Congested Ducts In Your Bow Laundromat

Smaller laundry facilities in Bow provide area residents with quieter environments than larger laundromats can. This more quiet atmosphere can seem attractive to young mothers who want their baby to sleep and college students who count on every possible minute to study. If your smaller laundromat uses traditional dryers, cleaning out the vents on a regular basis only helps prevent fires but can never eliminate the risk.

Small businesses in Bow can suffer drastically when commercial fire damage strikes. September is National Preparedness Month, and while we offer the free READY Plan Program, we also hope local businesses, especially smaller ones, take part this month in becoming better prepared for disasters.

The Red Cross addresses issues of public health and how disasters can affect individuals. The EPA focuses on disasters that affect property, land, and drinking water. Wildfires are also a disaster that federal agencies focus on this month, mainly because they cause damage to both open land and residential and business properties when fires spread, and containment efforts fail. Inside your own business, however, a fire can have equally devastating effects on your ability to remain open for business.

Small items that slip through dryer vents can cause fires. Shoestrings, lace ribbons, and other things disappear in both washers and dryers, never to be seen again. However, these items can cause clogs in both drains and ducts. When they build up in tubes, lint gets trapped, and in turn, this keeps steam from exiting. Heated items inside can eventually ignite and spread a fire.

SERVPRO wants to help your business recover as quickly as possible from all kinds of business-killing disasters. Fire damage can cause some of the worst damage because of the widespread scope of it and the water used to stifle the fire. This makes it so much easier for mold to grow unchecked, hidden with the soot. Our technicians have experience in mitigating the damage and restoring your business back to normal. Removing the damaged materials and the water that soaked your property makes sure your building is ready for new materials to come in and for installation to begin.

SERVPRO of Concord also serves those in the Penacook area. Fire damage causes many businesses to fail, but our IICRC-certified technicians can help you successfully reopen your small laundromat and get back to providing your customers with the service that is so crucial to their well-being. Contact our 24-hour services line at (603) 225-2825 any day of the year.

Cleaning and Removing Commercial Fire Damage in Bow

Paper in your insurance office is quickly combustible and can spread fire. Contact SERVPRO after a fire in your place of work.

Team SERVPRO First Determines the Materials That Burned in Order to Clean the Residues Efficiently

Business owners in Bow do not have to deal with a massive blaze unless it comes from a forest fire. Even then, the physical effects rarely include major damage like total loss of the structure.
 
Commercial fire damage to a Bow insurance office can be a mix of damage, to include some effects from the water of the fire suppression system or the firefighters. Most of the fire effects come in the form of smoke and odors. SERVPRO technicians begin the cleaning process by determining the extent and finding the source of the fire and determining what burned to better clean and eliminated them.
 
For a business like an insurance agency, the fuel for the fire is primarily building material like wall and ceiling panels. There can also be a significant amount of paper that burned as well. These materials often burn quickly and cleanly, leaving behind mostly dry, powdery residues and mild odors.
 
Depending on where the fire started, other materials that fed it could be the linoleum floor in a break room, small appliances, and commercial, plastic furniture. These items burn slowly, with more smoke, leaving behind thicker, grease-like residues and stronger odors.
 
SERVPRO technicians start eliminating both with circulation and removal. They set up air movers and exhaust fans to push the odors in the air out of the facility. For stronger odors, some of our team specialists put out granulated air fresheners to block and replace the smoke odors with a more pleasant scent.
 
As team members increase air circulation, others remove items affected by the smoke. They immediately dispose of property with physical damage and place any items with odors or residues in another location, or even outside, if weather permits.
 
For these items, technicians apply a cleaning agent, a deodorizer, or both. Once the chemicals have taken effect, the techs wipe down each surface with a dry or wet sponge, depending on the thickness of the residue. If the items are paper products like contracts or payment records, technicians can use only a deodorizer and a dry sponge to avoid damaging them.
 
Eliminating the effects of a fire often depends on what burned. SERVPRO of Concord has the experience to restore items and help every owner reopen their doors to support their customers as quickly as we can provide a clean environment. If you need us, call today at (603) 225-2825.

In fact, when your business operates during morning and early afternoon hours because it is centered on selling breakfast and lunch, it is even worse. When a fire breaks out in the early hours of the morning during food prep, the time it takes to deal with it can cut into your service. As a restaurant, an interruption to the foot traffic of your business can sometimes be a missed opportunity for daily profits.

Situations like this are precisely why it is a good idea to call for a professional restoration company to come to your breakfast cafe in Bow to handle the fire damage. Calling for help allows you to focus on opening the doors of your business again. You do not have to lose out on valuable customers and essential daily profits if we do the restoration work.

Here at SERVPRO, we understand that time matters, especially when it comes to the damage that a blaze leaves behind. A fire breaking out in the kitchens of your establishment can cause problems with preparing food, even if the blaze was small. Soot and smoke damage can be left behind and, as a result, a foul-smelling odor can be left in the air. A kitchen fire may result in powder dusting the prep areas and exposed foods. There is always the possibility of needing official post-food inspection okay before reopening.

SERVPRO can get to your business as soon as possible after your call and bring the right equipment to handle the job. To leave space in your kitchen for your employees to work while our techs start the cleanup, we can section off the area that has suffered damage from the small fire, if at all feasible. After, we can employ the use of a hydroxyl generator to neutralize odors in the air safely. We can use chemical cleaners to loosen and remove the soot residue that was adhered to the surface of your equipment. At SERVPRO, we make it our priority to clean and disinfect the area that suffered damage as quickly as possible so you can go back to business as usual.

Do not hesitate when a fire breaks out in your cafe kitchen. Dial (603) 225-2825 to contact SERVPRO of Concord.

Smoke and Fire Damage Cleanup for Your Bow Business

2/5/2018 (Permalink)

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.

Professional Water Damage Remediation Saves Concord Nature Center Displays

12/31/2017 (Permalink)

Exhibits often house priceless history that cannot be replaced. If your exhibit has suffered from water damage, it is best to contact SERVPRO.

SERVPRO Technicians Bring Moisture Detection Tools For Thorough Remediation at Your Commercial Location

Honoring a sense of Concord's natural history through dioramas and other educational displays offers citizens and visitors a grasp of the past, present, and future in our area. Significant damage to the indoor exhibits is possible when water intrusions go unnoticed or ignored. Our water damage crews employ best practices to restore affected areas, preserving both the structure and the history contained within its walls.
 
Persistent leaking from a poorly draining flat roof caused commercial water damage to the Concord nature center. Some of the educational exhibits affected have soaked walls, and the depictions of plants, animals, and birds are at risk of severe deterioration. We offer the tools and the training to find and remove water, and then to dry out and restore the displays.
 
A thorough assessment of the extent of the water damage informs the next steps taken by the SERVPRO team. Because of the unique characteristics of the rooms affected, water damage may be hidden. Our employees train in effective methods to measure and monitor the moisture content of both the underlying materials forming the structure of the building and the various natural and artificial components that make up the displays. Sophisticated scanning equipment helps us locate water pooled in recesses, between walls and behind partitions, and any other pockets of moisture that are likely to cause continuing damage if not removed.
 
We extract standing water, taking care not to damage the exhibits further. The next step is to develop and execute a drying plan to reduce the remaining moisture to normal levels. With the high risk of damage threatening articles that cannot be replaced, speed and skill are both necessary. SERVPRO crews train under the auspices of the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning, and Restoration Certification (IICRC), an international standard-setting organization for the water damage remediation industry.
 
Training in psychrometry, also known as the science of drying, is a core IICRC course taken by our crews. We learn how to balance air movement with heat and dehumidification to move water vapor permanently out of structures and contents. Air movers, heaters, and desiccant dehumidifiers positioned appropriately swiftly lower the moisture content from the water damaged areas, allowing us to repair and touch up deterioration, making the center look “Like it never even happened.”
 
SERVPRO of Concord is ready to tackle any water damage in your business or community space. Call us at (603) 225-2825 to set up an appraisal and get the restoration process moving.

Water Removal in Your Concord Office Building After a Failed Sprinkler System

11/16/2017 (Permalink)

Water Removal from Your Concord Office? Call SERVPRO

Malfunctions Lead to Water Damage in Many Office Workplaces

If your Concord office building is older, the sprinkler system could be as well. Keeping them updated is essential, as older systems can fail and cause water damage that is debilitating to your business. Not only do you have much water to clean up, but there are also many items that are now damaged such as expensive computers and other electronics, and necessary paperwork.
 
Because of the scope of the damage from a sprinkler system malfunctioning in your Concord office building, you need professional help for your commercial water removal problem. Our staff at SERVPRO are fully trained and ready to help you anytime you need, so do not hesitate to get in touch with us after an emergency strikes.
 
Besides all the items in your building which require drying, we need to dry out the structure as well. Once the standing water is pumped out with our heavy-duty truck-mounted pumps in the event of large volumes of water, there are structural items which need to be dried out to prevent additional damages such as those caused by mold.
 
Drying multiple layers of sheetrock requires a longer drying time. Cost is also a factor. The time and expense to dry the material to its preloss condition could be more than replacing the actual sheetrock. Drying a single layer of saturated drywall takes five to seven days on average. Typically, when business continuity and production is of paramount importance, the most rapid means of either restoration or replacement is the solution.

Drying two layers of drywall could take ten to fourteen days. SERVPRO techs can monitor the layers using a penetrating moisture tester with long, Teflon coated probes. We use the probes in areas that are inconspicuous, and patch the holes during the process of restoration. Drywall gets more fragile when it is wet and more stable as it dries out.
 
Ceiling tiles are usually less expensive to remove and replace than to dry out. As the building owner, you likely want to have new tiles since water usually stains tiles and causes them to bow. Some kinds of ceiling tiles can withstand moisture better than acoustical tiles. Ceiling tiles should usually be removed so air can circulate and dry wet areas above the gridlines. Some tiles are salvageable depending on how severe the damage is. Older ceiling tiles which contain asbestos require removal by licensed contractors.
 
SERVPRO of Concord ensures your office building is dry again so that you can continue normal operations as fast as possible. Businesses in the areas of Bow, Concord, or Penacook should contact us at (603) 225-2825 as soon as they notice a problem.
