Commercial Avoiding A Long-Term Shutdown With Commercial Water Removal At Your Nashua Factory The presence of standing water in any Nashua business can cause many problems, and the same holds true for factories.

Commercial Water Removal

The presence of standing water in any Nashua business can cause many problems, and the same holds true for factories. These issues can last months, decreasing profits, creating an unsafe working environment for employees, and damaging both products and raw materials. Machinery can also become severely damaged when factory managers or owners delay in obtaining proper water removal services.

Many factories in Nashua avoid closing their doors by obtaining commercial water removal services whenever water collects in an area from broken water line es, damaged roof sections, or drain backups happen. Factories often close permanently after managers consider such services unnecessary.

Wet Winter Weather is One Cause of Mold Growth in the Attic of Your Nashua Residence

Mold Remediation Wet Winter Weather is One Cause of Mold Growth in the Attic of Your Nashua Residence Mold Growth and Remediation by SERVPRO for Nashua Area Properties

Many Factors Contribute to Mold Growth in Nashua Homes Until SERVPRO Remediates the Colonies

The winter months, with its strong winds, freezing temperatures, and wet snow can affect your Nashua home from top to bottom. When ice dams form over loosened shingles, birds or other pests open small holes around vents, or inexperienced workers install insulation poorly, moisture can get inside your attic.

Inside your Nashua home's attic, mold can begin growing after only a small amount of water enters. The cold weather cannot stop its growth, especially when the warm air becomes trapped inside, or the sun melts the snow and warms the roof. Slight changes in temperature around spores can trigger their growth. Some attics contain small nooks and areas that receive little air circulation. However, these can experience prolific growth because once mold spores enter, they cannot leave and their accumulated mass steadily increases over time.

Mold causes damage to both structures and belongings. We at SERVPRO remediate both problems simultaneously to serve our customers better. This reduces costs as well as the time required to fulfill both aspects satisfactorily.

Containing the area begins by installing temporary barriers made of heavy plastic sheeting (6-12 mils thick). Once we attach an air scrubber and hose to this set-up, we achieve negative air pressure. Because the air being forced out of your attic never enters your home's other areas, mold cannot spread to them. IICRC standards view this as a very effective method at containing mold while remediation work proceeds.

Our Applied Microbial Remediation Technician (AMRT) ensures our work meets acceptable standards from the EPA because this help provides long-lasting protection against the damages microbial colonization can cause inside a home.

Other equipment used includes dehumidifiers and moisture meters to decrease the moisture content in your attic and to detect where this moisture might enter in the future. Sealing these areas or repairing them helps prevent future mold growth.

SERVPRO of Nashua employs qualified technicians to protect the homes in our community. Contact us for remediation of mold in your attic and other areas of your home. Our 24-hour services can be reached at (603) 889-2311 365 days a year.

Removing the Odor From Your Fire Damaged Nashua Home

1/12/2018 (Permalink)

Fire Damage Removing the Odor From Your Fire Damaged Nashua Home Fire damage involves more than just charred items. When the lingering smell of smoke leaves your home with an awful odor, contact SERVPRO for help.

Team SERVPRO Remediates Damage Thoroughly After a Fire, All the Way Down to the Lingering Odor

Sometimes fires do not leave significant structural damages or any substantial damage at all. When a small kitchen fire occurs in your Nashua home, sometimes the worst of the lingering symptoms is the odor. Necessary cleaning efforts might leave your walls and appliances back the way that they were before the fire, getting rid of the smell of smoke from the affected area can sometimes be one of the trickiest things to accomplish.
 
There are many things that people tend to try to overcome a significant noxious odor like smoke. Merely trying to mask the smell with a stronger one is a common choice, though it rarely lasts long enough to be useful, and indeed does not last long enough to be deemed a solution for the fire damage to your Nashua home. Professional restoration efforts ensure that the smoke damage is neutralized completely, with no scent at all left behind.
 
Our SERVPRO professionals have several ways of accomplishing the neutralization of odorous molecules. The first is through the use of dense fogging machines. This chemical fog has no scent, but it reacts with smoke damage on a molecular level and nullifies them entirely. This process has also been proven effective for specific upholstered items, drapes, and furniture in the affected area.
 
Another piece of equipment that our SERVPRO restoration specialists might choose to use for deodorizing your home is an ozone machine with a HEPA filter. This machine cleans the air of the foul lingering odor and removes any harmful molecules that might also still be around following your recent fire. The choice between these two different approaches becomes based on the condition of your home and how widespread the odor has become by the time you have called in our team to take care of the problem.
 
Dealing with lingering symptoms of a small fire can make it hard just to live comfortably in your home. Let our experienced professionals restore your home to the way it was before the incident and help you to enjoy life in your house again. Give SERVPRO of Nashua a call today at (603) 889-2311.

Hotel Crisis Averted With Competent Commercial Water Removal in Nashua

1/4/2018 (Permalink)

Commercial Hotel Crisis Averted With Competent Commercial Water Removal in Nashua When hotel hot tubs or showers overflow and cause damage, it is important to contact SERVPRO right away to dry out the property and prevent mold.

SERVPRO Technicians Arrive on the Scene With the Equipment and Training to Dry Out Your Water Damaged Establishment

Hotels in the Nashua area meet many needs for residents, area businesses, and visitors. Travelers stop to visit attractions or rest while passing through, family members gather for reunions or events like weddings and graduations, conferences planners need meeting rooms and overnight accommodations for out-of-town attendees, and school groups or sports teams require a home base during a tournament or other contests.
 
Occasionally during these stays, pranks or accidents cause issues that require commercial water removal in a Nashua hotel. Mistakes like draping the curtain outside of a tub during a shower or parties that result in hot tub water or cooler ice spreading across a suite or common area cause serious consequences for hotel management. Cleaning staff at the hotel do not have the specialized training nor the equipment we use to bring these problems under control.
 
Hotels that need water removal gain good results when SERVPRO answers the call. We understand that even a day lost to commerce because of a water emergency can spell disaster for an inn, resort, or motel. Guests rely on you for accommodations, and the community expects to be able to recommend your rooms for business associates or family members in town for a limited time.
 
Our service vehicles have submersible pumps and water extractors onboard, so if the power is interrupted in the flooded spaces for safety reasons, SERVPRO can still begin to remove the water immediately. If a meeting or ballroom is affected, we make certain the crew member numbers and equipment we provide meets the size of the water removal problem.
 
Drying out tiled areas still requires us to look for migrating water or recesses where pooled-up moisture hides. SERVPRO makes sure that all responding teams have members who know how to measure moisture and scan for pockets of water between walls, above ceilings, or other unexpected areas. Drying goals set through the use of this information allow a systematic and efficient approach to drying.
 
Where wet carpeting is a problem, our employees use their training to dry it in place, using weighted wands and moisture monitoring to achieve proper moisture reduction at all levels -- carpet, padding, and the subfloor. SERVPRO technicians appreciate the necessity of removing the water fast and thoroughly to avoid secondary issues like mold growth or building material deterioration.
 
SERVPRO of Nashua prepares for commercial water removal requests by employing only IICRC trained technicians and stocking state-of-the-art industrial strength equipment. When unanticipated water needs removal, give us a call at (603) 889-2311.

Clogged Gutters Can Create Flood Damage To Nashua Homes

12/13/2017 (Permalink)

Storm Damage Clogged Gutters Can Create Flood Damage To Nashua Homes Flooding in Nashua from Clogged Gutters Can Be Prevented Says SERVPRO

Storm Waters without Proper Draining Cause Flooding

Clogged gutters are not an uncommon issue to find in Nashua through the fall and winter seasons. With leaves coming off the trees, it does not take a lot of this kind of debris to dam up the gutter or prevents water from getting through your downspout. When there is no natural way for rising water to go, it reaches the point of spilling over the brim, down the siding, and around your foundation.
 
As a homeowner, one of your chief concerns is keeping water from pooling around your foundation to prevent flood damage to your Nashua residence. While french drain systems offer a reasonable amount of support against runoff getting too close to the blocks, this is anything but full-proof. In fact, these underground drainage systems are meant to work alongside a functioning gutter structure all around the house, preventing an excess of rainwater from reaching the french drain in the first place.
 
When water is allowed to collect against your foundation wall, the ensuing pressure puts an enormous strain on the blocks and their mortar joints. Weak points are exposed, and flooding occurs in your lower levels. Regardless of how it happened, you need the water cleaned up and to keep the damages from getting any worse. That is where our SERVPRO team can come in to help.
 
Patching holes in the foundation or wherever the water has been allowed to access your basement is the first step in the restoration process. Removal of the source prevents the problem from getting worse while our SERVPRO professionals begin eliminating the present water in the area. Air movers work to dry the floors and walls while simultaneously reducing the moisture in the room that might fuel mold spores from sprouting on nearby organic materials.
 
While a regular inspection of your gutter system can prevent this one avenue of flooding, it is nice to know whom you can call when you are facing a challenge like this one. We at SERVPRO of Nashua are available 24/7 at (603) 889 – 2311.

Eliminating Fire Damage Odors in Nashua

12/4/2017 (Permalink)

Fire Damage Eliminating Fire Damage Odors in Nashua SERVPRO has the training and equipment to thoroughly rid your home of the odors left behind by fire damage.

SERVPRO's Three-Step Process to Remove Odor from Fire Damage

In small to medium fires, most of the cleaning cost to a Nashua homeowner is from smoke odors and residues. Cleaning residues can take a lot of time and effort, but the results are fairly easy to see. Eliminating odors is often a more difficult task.

Remediating Nashua fire damage, especially odor removal, requires multiple methods. To put your home back to its pre-fire condition, SERVPRO uses a three-step process we call Multiple-Phase Odor Control.

Chemical Containment is the initial phase. Our technicians spray a deodorizing agent directly onto any visible smoke residues. The agent forms a barrier that slows or stops the evaporation process which prevents odor particles from turning into a vapor. This free vapor is the actual smell in the air.

Vapor Odor Control is phase two. For odor particles already in the air, SERVPRO technicians use counteragents or deodorant vapors to block them. Simply put, the granular counteragents contain a variety of stronger, more pleasant odors that overcome smoke odors.

Thermal Fogging is phase three. For very strong and difficult to remove odors, technicians use the heat generated by a thermal fogging device to break down a deodorant chemical to the same size particles as the odor vapor. These deodorant particles bond with them, which neutralizes the odor particles by changing their chemical composition. The fog evaporates in just a few hours and leaves behind almost no moisture to stain personal or structural property.

This reduced moisture also makes thermal fogging perfect to prevent color running on delicate fabrics, upholstered furniture, and building material sensitive to too much moisture, like drywall. Not every residence needs all three phases to clean and remove odors. Technicians examine the property after each action to determine if they have finished the job, need to repeat a phase, or move to the next phase.

Removing odors from your home is perhaps the most difficult part of the restoration. We have to eliminate every trace, or the smell returns as strong as before. SERVPRO of Nashua has decades of experience in odor removal and can help you return your home to its pre-fire condition. Call us at (603) 889-2311 today to get started.

Remediating Mold in Nashua Attics

11/16/2017 (Permalink)

Mold Remediation Remediating Mold in Nashua Attics Not having enough insulation in your attic can be a cause for mold growth.

SERVPRO's Mold Remediation Process

Nashua homes can handle some of the worst storms and come out often needing no more than some new trim or maybe replace a garden shed. It is often a quiet disaster like mold that owners never notice until the restoration costs approach putting on an addition to their home.

When they find mold in the attic, Nashua homeowners at first cannot believe it. Most think our weather is too cold for mold or mistakenly believe since the attic is clean of food, that it should not be able to grow. After decades of cleaning and removing mold from homes, SERVPRO knows that attics are a perfect place for spores to expand and grow, spreading over the top of the entire home.

One factor that promotes mold growing in an attic is not having enough insulation. Too little insulation allows heat from the home rise into the attic where it meets with the colder air. It leads to condensation, which can form small pools of water across the attic that mold spores can use just as easily as those from a leaky pipe or stormwater. Since condensation can occur throughout Fall and Winter, the potential threat is even greater.

To change this, SERVPRO technicians check the amount of insulation and if it has become compromised by the moisture and mold. Both can weigh down blown-in and rolled insulation, making it less efficient and causing even more condensation. If the insulation is still clean and useful, we can add to it after removing the mold.

Since we want to avoid contaminating the existing insulation, technicians first secure plastic sheeting over it. It allows us to bring in vacuum hoses connected to commercial grade pumps. We insert HEPA filters designed to capture the tiny spores and remove most of the mold present.

Next, we spray or use a fog device to deploy anti-fungal and anti-microbial agents throughout the attic. Our chemical agents kill the spores on contact, making it much safer for our technicians to scrape and brush the remaining spores by hand out of the attic.

Our last cleaning step is to remove the plastic sheeting and perform a final inspection. Then, we add to the insulation unless the homeowner wants to use another service.

Mold can expand and grow in any home in New Hampshire. Not having enough insulation should never be the reason for the process to start though. If you have mold or suspect there may be a problem, contact SERVPRO of Nashua at (603) 889-2311 today. We are here to help.

Indoor Water Line Breaks Solved by Commercial Water Removal in Nashua Furniture Galleries

11/9/2017 (Permalink)

Commercial Indoor Water Line Breaks Solved by Commercial Water Removal in Nashua Furniture Galleries SERVPRO can help restore your furniture after water damage to a like-new condition.

Quick and Efficient Water Removal Services for Your Commercial Space

Helping furnish the homes in Nashua takes skill and a desire to help people raise their families in a comfortable home while entertaining guests in style. Part of this requires having floor models on hand so customers know exactly how individual pieces of furniture look and feel, and how the dimensions might play out in their homes.

When a water line breaks inside a Nashua furniture gallery, commercial water removal can help make everything right again. Area businesses know they can rely on SERVPRO and our professional technicians to provide the exact services needed for catastrophes of any size, type, or severity.

With furniture, particularly new pieces, carpeting can quickly stain from the finishes on furniture legs. As soon as we complete our initial assessment, we set these pieces on unfinished wooden blocks to protect the carpeting. These must remain until the furniture and carpeting dry thoroughly.

Removing the water standing in your showroom happens quite fast with the use of our truck-mounted pumps. Solidly built, these steadily remove the water causing you grief. When floors become visible again, we switch to hand-held pumps that our technicians can comfortably handle, making water removal around furniture pieces, stairways, and tight places possible.

Just as our Water Damage Restoration Technician (WRT) knows precisely what the inside of your building's interior requires, our Upholstery and Fabric Cleaning Technician (UFT) knows what each piece of waterlogged furniture requires for restoration. While you might now not be able to sell these items as 'new,' we can often restore furniture items to like-new condition, making your potential customers quite pleased with the new price.

While we assist you in keeping sales strong by performing restorative work, SERVPRO can also help as a neutral party by keeping an inventory sheet of damaged items restored by our technicians. The difference in regular price to after-damage price is often recoverable as a business loss, either via insurance or tax credits, but both may require written documentation.

SERVPRO of Nashua can be reached by calling (603) 889-2311, every day of the year, and at any hour. We remain dedicated to helping all our customers achieve their goals of returning everything to normal once again.
