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.

How Our Injectidry System Can Save Your Flood Damaged Home In Concord
If you are ready to get rid of excess water with advanced drying equipment, then give SERVPRO of Concord a call!
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.
If you are ready to get rid of excess water with advanced drying equipment, then give SERVPRO of Concord a call at (603) 225-2825, and we can send our water restoration specialist to your residential establishment.

The Importance Of Achieving Dryness In A Home With Flood Damage In Concord
One thing that homeowners in Concord cannot wholly prepare for is flood damage.
The Importance Of Achieving Dryness After A Flood
Many of Concord's residents are preparing for winter weather by checking their furnaces, installing weatherstripping around doors and windows, and making sure that outside water hoses are disconnected. Cleaning away fallen leaves and other debris helps keep homes looking well-cared for and beautiful.
One thing that homeowners in Concord cannot wholly prepare for is flood damage. Flooding can occur without any notice. The aftermath can shock homeowners with its destructiveness. SERVPRO is always here to help recovery from such situations. Our technicians are certified by the IICRC and continue to train extensively, so they know how to perform all of the methods and techniques your home needs.
Wooden structures in your home can often become dry again and experience little to no damage. Waiting to begin the mitigation process can undermine the ability of wood to dry out before warping, buckling, or other structural damage takes place. SERVPRO uses both heat and concentrated airflow to speed up drying while continually monitoring the drying process. Damage can result if drying occurs too rapidly, also, and we work to prevent this from happening.
Wooden floors, baseboards, doorway frame and trim, and the like, however, can lose their finishes when exposed to water for lengthy periods. Before applying new stains and finishes to these surfaces, they must achieve normal moisture levels again. The same applies to areas where homeowners would like to repaint. Removing these materials and placing them in a temporary drying chamber can help ensure even, thorough drying.
Our drying equipment includes heaters that gently raise the temperature without scorching materials. Our technicians can fit our air movers with hoses to direct the flow exactly where it can perform the most effectively. We use moisture detection equipment that can show us the amount of moisture remaining in any item we test. Removing moisture adequately also prevents situations involving overgrowth of microbes, which can cause damage to both your home and your family's personal belongings.
SERVPRO of Concord helps assist homeowners in Merrimack County cope successfully with the devastating effects of flood damage. Call us at (603) 225-2825 to receive expert guidance after stressful events that damage your home and disrupt your family life.

Concord's Flood Damage Experts Explain Moisture Actions
Flooding can bring an excessive amount of moisture into your home. Contact SERVPRO for effective remediation efforts.
Our SERVPRO Technicians Understand Flooding and How Water Behaves
Monsoon and hurricane seasons are on the way for most parts of the country and could cause a storm to land near Concord. Every once in a while, a severe thunderstorm creates conditions that can cause you extensive property damage. For example, the combination of heavy rains and winds can break off tree branches throwing them into your home. If something that got picked up by the wind collides into your house, exterior walls, windows, or your roof, they can all get ruined. If an object punctures a hole in one of these items, the excessive rain can pour into the interior of the building.
Once a significant amount of rainwater gets into your home, problems can start to take place. When flood damage in Concord occurs, our SERVPRO technicians are experienced in diagnosing every issue that a storm could have caused. We start by taking measurements including moisture content, humidity, and temperature readings. We first take readings of the conditions in the affected area of the structure. We then go to places of the house that we know did not get affected by water to come up with drying goals.
Rapidly drying out a structure takes specialized equipment and knowledge of how water behaves inside a structure. Our SERVPRO restoration crews take temperature readings because how hot it is inside your home affects whether water stays in the air or condenses to liquid form. Air can hold different amounts of water at various temperatures. For example, when you pour a cold drink on a hot day, water from the air forms around your glass making the outside of it wet. The temperature at which water vapor turns into liquid water is known as the dew point.
When drying out contents and building materials, it is vital that the temperature never reaches the dew point or water can form on interior surfaces and cause secondary damage. During the drying process, the goal is to create the ideal conditions to speed up the natural process of water turning from liquid to water vapor also known as evaporation. Dehumidification then forces water in the air to condense into a liquid, removing the evaporated water coming from the wet items out of the air. Any time you suffer property damage after a thunderstorm, call SERVPRO of Concord at (603) 225-2825 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

SERVPRO’s Crew is Trained and Experienced to Thoroughly Restore Your Home after Flood Damage
Torrential rain and lightning storms wash away the dirt and grime covering the city in Concord, but the damage it can cause to your home through flooding can bring about severe problems.

This grime also includes pathogens, microbes, and other biological matter that can cause health effects.
SERVPRO assists homeowners in Concord by undoing the flood damages affecting their homes. Our extraction equipment removes the water, of any amount, and then we begin to dry out your home's interior thoroughly. Heat, air currents, and drying equipment all work together and at specific times to create a drier atmosphere. Our training and experience help us determine the best approach, even in homes with closed in spaces and long hallways.
In addition to drying your home's interior, we also perform sanitation services so that we return your home's interior pathogen load to within normal ranges. We not only have equipment that reads the amount of moisture in a material, but we also use devices that can read how many foreign particles cover the surface. Our extraction machines also remove those tiny organisms which can cause health effects in both people and pets.

These odors, evidence of microorganisms and decaying matter can last for months or even years, or until we remove them. Our Odor Control Technician (OCT) holds IICRC certification and can help your home lose its post-flood musty odors. Ozone treatments or the use of hydroxyl gas can eliminate such problems.

Water Contamination Concerns When Flood Damage Affects Concord
Contact SERVPRO after a flooding event in the home. We will assess the situation, begin removing standing water, and formulate a restoration plan.
SERVPRO's Technicians Remove Water First After Flooding and Then Assess the Remaining Damage
Severe storms over the past few months have Concord residents concerned about flooding in their homes. Saturated soils and overwhelmed storm sewers allow water to seep through foundations and backup in basements. When water floods into your house, we can help, especially important if the water standing in your lower level is at risk of contamination.
It is always important to remove water intruding into a building quickly, but removal needs to be speedy and safe when post-storm flood damage threatens your Concord home. Water that floods your home after days of rain collects all manner of chemicals and debris from the surrounding area. Adding a sewer backup to the mix increases the risk from gray to black water. Our crews have experience with the dirty water that fills your foundation, and we assure you we know how to remove it safely and dispose of it properly.
Whenever a sewer backs up, you face the probability of human waste, animal waste, bloodborne pathogens, and a broad array of lawn and pavement residue depositing inside your house. Even water that seeps through the foundation because the soil surrounding your home is overloaded with rain and runoff can carry hazardous chemicals and other pollutants into the pools forming in your basement or crawl space. SERVPRO has the equipment operated by certified staff that extracts and contains this foul water for disposal according to local regulations.
When dealing with black water, you need a professional flood damage restoration company with which to partner. Unless the contaminated water is eliminated immediately, you risk microbial proliferation and permanent damage to HVAC systems, appliances, and personal possessions stored in the affected areas. SERVPRO requires and supports advanced training for our workers managing your contamination and flooding issues. After the water exits, we evaluate your heating and cooling system for safe operation capability, cleaning and sanitizing it to prevent a spread of any of the dangerous substances to which it was exposed.
We also help determine whether furnishings and stored items are safe to dry out given the nature of the water soaking them. You can count on SERVPRO’s professionalism as we review your options, ensuring that you and your family are safe now and in the future.
SERVPRO of Concord awaits your call if storm flooding damages your property and threatens your health and well being because of contaminated water. We are available around the clock to answer questions and to schedule an inspection at (603) 225-2825.

Restoration Plans For Unique Cases Of Flooding in Bow
Flooding happens quickly and can bring mold into your house if not dealt with right away. Be prepared by having SERVPRO on speed dial.
SERVPRO Technicians Arrive Equipped to Remove Flood Waters from Your Property
Our community lies to the west of the Merrimack River, occasionally posing a flood risk. Strong storms also threaten residents with watery basements due to roof runoff or seepage. Appliances and tubs overflow, among other household water hazards. No matter the cause, SERVPRO offers experienced crews and powerful equipment to restore residences affected by flooding.
To extend the growing season year-round, you installed a hydroponic garden system. The reservoir holds more than thirty gallons and unfortunately sprung a leak while you were out of town over a long weekend. The lower level, including a carpeted family room, suffered flood damage in your Bow home. Water, fortified with the nutrients necessary to grow plants without soil, needs removal and structures, fixtures, and belongings need drying. Expect us at your home within hours, implementing a plan to return the flooded spaces to preloss condition quickly.
Flood water classifies as clean, gray, or black. Gray is somewhat and black greatly contaminated with substances that can be harmful to buildings, contents, and occupants. Professional cleanup is essential when the water has added chemicals as with your hydroponic system, and SERVPRO ensures technicians trained in abating tainted water complete your job.
First, an experienced project manager assesses the challenges presented by the flood of water mixed with the hydroponic growth medium. The fertilizer intended for plant growth may instead encourage microbial colonies as it soaks into building materials, flooring, and up the walls. Just 48 hours of wetness risks mold growth, so the first task is removal of the water with pumps and extractors. Our truck-mounted system allows us to collect the gray water for disposal off-site in accord with local hazardous waste procedures.
Because carpeting and drywall soaked up the water, we evaluate whether drying of these materials is possible. The disintegration of the pressed fibers in the drywall signal that at least a portion needs to be removed and replaced. The padding under the carpet is relatively inexpensive to switch out and increases the likelihood that the carpeting itself dries thoroughly. Air movers and dehumidifiers speed the removal of moisture in the carpet, the floor beneath, the walls, and the air itself. The SERVPRO team applies antimicrobial agents to the carpeting during the restoration process as a safeguard.
SERVPRO of Concord is up to any challenge, including the concerns that arise when your lower level floods due to a hydroponic growth system leak. Call (603) 225-2825 for an inspection and the development of a plan that fits your unique flood damage issues.

The Risk Of Carpet Delamination After Flood Damage From A Dishwasher or Storm In Concord
Concord Carpeting Needs Restoration or Replacement After Appliance or Storm Damage
Storm Water or Appliance Leakage Both Require SERVPRO Restoration to Salvage Carpeting
Dishwashers are a wonderfully convenient household appliance, but as with any such device, there is always the risk of the dishwasher breaking down and causing a flood in your kitchen or utility room. Groundwater from storms is a dirtier flood to deal with but occurs less often.
Following flood damage in your Concord home, saving your carpet is a priority. After all, carpet is expensive to replace, and you want to avoid paying out for a new one if at all possible. SERVPRO is on hand to dry and restore your carpet – our aim is to make it “Like it never even happened.” Contaminated carpets filled with dirt, bacteria, waste from flooding requires a more complex inspection and treatment.
Carpet delamination is a real risk if your dishwasher floods in a carpeted area. To understand carpet delamination we need to know the construction of a carpet. Carpet has a primary backing and a secondary backing. The secondary backing is the one that is in contact with the floor underneath. Typically, soaked carpets and padding from groundwater flooding requires disposal and then a thorough drying of the floor base.
Delamination occurs when the primary backing becomes separated from the secondary backing. There are several causes of delamination, including poor quality manufacturing and improper installation. Another reason is flood damage. Water might cause the bonding glue to break down and the two backings to separate.
Drying carpet as quickly and as thoroughly as possible is necessary to lessen the risk of delamination. SERVPRO technicians are equipped to deal with the results of a dishwasher flood and dry the surrounding area effectively. Our technicians can also extract water post storm to reduce lamination effects.
Our IICRC-certified professionals have free-standing, truck mounted and submersible pumps on hand to remove water from the flooded area. Extraction is more efficient than drying, so it is important to spend plenty of time on this stage to hasten the drying process.
There is also a risk of delamination if the wet carpet is handled too roughly. You can rest assured that our team takes the greatest of care during the extraction process to minimize the risk of damage to your carpet. We also make several passes with the appropriate extraction tool because we know that extracting as much water as we can shorten the drying time.
After extraction, we position air movers and dehumidifiers around the area to evaporate water from your carpet and bring down the humidity in the surrounding air. If the storm dictated that the carpet was not salvageable, our techs can prep the sub-base and disinfect all exposed areas.
If you are concerned about the state of your carpet after a storm or a broken appliance, give SERVPRO of Concord a call at (603) 225-2825 for assistance.
