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)

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

Commercial 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.

Commercial When a Fire Breaks Out In Your Bow Breakfast Cafe, What to Do SERVPRO Helps Clean Up Your Bow Cafe After a Fire

Fast SERVPRO Response Can Mitigate the Fire & Smoke Damage and Downtime

Fire damage is never an ideal situation for any business. 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)

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

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

Electrical fires can occur at any time in your Bow pizza parlor, many times from outdated wiring, faulty outlets, or too many items plugged into one electrical strip.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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Professional Water Damage Remediation Saves Concord Nature Center Displays

12/31/2017 (Permalink)

Commercial Professional Water Damage Remediation Saves Concord Nature Center Displays 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)

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