Commercial Water Damage Cleanup in Your Nashua Restaurant

3/26/2018 (Permalink)

Commercial Commercial Water Damage Cleanup in Your Nashua Restaurant A leaking pipe can cause extensive water damage to your commercial property, especially when it goes unnoticed.

SERVPRO Can Thoroughly and Properly Dry Out Your Water Damaged Property

Water is essential to keep your restaurant in Nashua running, but it can be damaging to your property as well. A leaking pipe can lead to damage to the structure of your building, besides abnormally high water bills. Water pipes might look airtight and durable, but they can give way to excessive pressure or can be destroyed by activities relating to construction. If there is a hidden leak that is unnoticed for a period, the damage is even worse.

When you suspect that you have a leak coming from your plumbing or pipeline in your Nashua business, it is crucial that you take action right away. The longer the water is allowed to sit in your building, the more commercial water damage is done. You need the professional help of our staff at SERVPRO, as we are a trained and experienced water damage restoration company.

When drying structures, airflow is one of the most important tools we can use. Drying your building efficiently requires knowing the correct techniques for using airflow. When an air mover blows directly at a wall, the air bounces back, plus it forces moisture into the wall, which is not good. Instead, if we place the air mover at a 45-degree angle, the air bounces off the wall and carries moisture away so drier air can replace it.

SERVPRO techs also place air movers in a clockwise pattern with the inlet facing the wall and nose against the wall. We might have to put extra air movers in closets, large windows, and offsets. We monitor all the equipment daily and move the machines to the left or right in a circular pattern, so we can evenly dry the structure in a timely fashion.

It is sometimes necessary to dry ceilings as well. Airflow has to be directed over wet ceilings to evaporate the moisture. Doing so also circulates the warm air which has risen to the ceiling. A few panels on each end of drop ceilings are opened so we can direct airflow into these open areas.

SERVPRO of Nashua understands how to thoroughly dry your business in Nashua or the surrounding counties after a water damage emergency. Give us a call right away at (603) 889-2311 when you believe you have a problem.

Water Damage The Risks Of A Wet Basement In Your Nashua Home Don't Duck Getting Your Basement in Nashua Dried--Call SERVPRO

SERVPRO Rapidly Extracts Water and Dries Out Basements to Mitigate Losses

When coming out of the winter season, your Nashua home is bound to experience several different kinds of weather. When the temperatures quickly fluctuate by cold and warm fronts passing through the region, what just left snow and ice yesterday is now pouring down the rain. With the ground never getting enough time to thaw before the rainfalls this time of year adequately, the earth is less able to absorb the moisture, and so it runs along the surface and against the foundation of your home.

While many homes remain prepared for the possibility of flooding and subsequent storm damages that were listed above, no home can remain in opposition to pressurized exterior water against their foundation for long. Every Nashua home inevitably contends with a wet basement, unless the appropriate provisions are taken to prevent this occurrence from happening
 
There are significant risks to having a wet basement. For starters, while the damage might not appear extreme at first, the more water that can penetrate through weak points in your foundation, the wider these pathways become. This fact leads to untold volumes of water eventually penetrating through the walls of the basement and onto the floors unabated. Preventative work now can keep this flooding from occurring, but that begins with an initial assessment from our certified SERVPRO professionals.
 
Another concern for a wet basement in your home is the possibility of mold growth. Since mold spores only require moisture and warmer temperatures to form colonies, the conditions can easily get met with allowing water to seep through the walls of the basement level of your house. With the high levels of expertise and necessary equipment for our SERVPRO mold remediation specialists to correct and restore this damage, it might also inspire you to act on your wet basement a little more quickly.
 
Ultimately, no one is going to be as well informed about your wet basement in your home as you are. Without knowing about the trouble you are facing, our experienced team of professionals has no idea that you might require our services. Save yourself a considerable headache in the future, and let SERVPRO of Nashua take care of your wet basement now. Give us a call anytime at (603) 889-2311.

Mold Remediation Mold Damage From Ice Dams In Your Nashua Home The water may end up leaking down into your walls and get trapped inside the walls, leading to mildew and mold growth.

Mold Damage From Ice Dams

In Nashua, it is not uncommon to hear of ice dams. Gutters can sometimes get clogged with ice during the winter season, preventing any water from the roof flowing down properly as it should. Instead, water ends up back onto the roof, where it can get underneath shingles and cause lots of structural damage and leaks. The water may end up leaking down into your walls and get trapped inside the walls, leading to mildew and mold growth.

When you notice mold growth and mold damage on the walls of your Nashua home, you know you have a problem.

We first inspect your home carefully for signs of visible mold. There can be hidden mold as well that you are not seeing. Various technologies are used to detect the mold and any hidden water sources. We also use different containment methods to stop the mold from spreading throughout the rest of your home. Negative air chambers and physical barriers may be used to keep mold spores from spreading while we are cleaning up the affected area. Any cooling and heating systems are turned off as well, so the mold does not spread.

SERVPRO staff use special filtration equipment that allows us to trap airborne microscopic mold spores. HEPA vacuums and powerful air scrubbers stop also mold spores from spreading during remediation. The process depends on how much mold there is and what kinds of surfaces it is on. We use treatments which are antimicrobial and antifungal to get rid of colonies of mold and help stop new ones from starting. Sometimes we may need to remove and get rid of porous materials that are infested with molds, such as carpeting and drywall.

We then clean any restorable items which were affected by the old with a variety of techniques to clean and sanitize them. We are trained to remove odors as well and perform deodorization using fogging equipment. Minor repairs may need to be made such as replacing drywall and painting.

Avoiding A Long-Term Shutdown With Commercial Water Removal At Your Nashua Factory

1/30/2018 (Permalink)

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

1/18/2018 (Permalink)

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.
