Broken washing machine Faulty appliances can quickly cause water damage in your home. Call the professionals at SERVPRO today for assistance.

Several potential issues could affect the washing machine in your Nashua home and cause it to leak or flood the areas around the appliance. Broken seals in the discharge line can happen without you noticing, and once a breach exists in this outlet, the full water contents of a load can empty onto the floor of your laundry room. Even worse, damage to the input hose that fills your appliance could leave you contending with an endless flow of water on the floor until you shut off the valve supplying it.

With both qualified restoration technicians and in-house residential contractors, we can meet the needs of your water damaged home.

How Do I Clean Soot Residues From My Nashua Restaurant's Kitchen After a Fire?

For Commercial Fire Damage Restoration in Your Nashua Restaurant Call SERVPRO

One of the most common sources of structural blazes are mishaps in the kitchen. When operating your Nashua restaurant, your staff uses heat and multiple hot appliances to produce the food you sell every day. Therefore restaurants can be at high risk for structural burns.

How can you get rid of soots and soils on my restaurant's appliances and kitchen walls?

When mitigating commercial fire damage in your Nashua eatery, our SERVPRO technicians can use different techniques depending upon what types of surfaces got affected. If wooden or other porous surfaces got coated in residues, then we can utilize dry cleaning methods such as vacuuming or sponge cleaning. If non-porous surfaces like your stainless steel appliances got negatively affected, then we can use water-based detergents or solvents to remove the soot. Whenever we clean and remove soot residues, we utilize the following cleaning actions:

    •    Mechanical Action- Physical agitation of the soot can be a very effective way to remove soot residues. Dry cleaning methods rely on agitation since water-based detergents cannot be used on porous surfaces. Wet cleaning methods also use agitation by scrubbing with a rag or steel wool.
    •    Lubrication- Lubricating or making things slippery can aid in releasing the soot's bond with your affected surfaces.
    •    Chemical Action- Many products cause chemical reactions to occur that can aid in cleaning and removing residues.
    •    Suspension- During most chemical actions, the cleaner causes the soot to suspend into the detergent. Suspension can occur when a soil dissolves into a cleaning mixture, or they emulsify into a product it cannot be mixed with.
    •    Dispersion- Once the soils get released from the affected surface, they then get dispersed into the cleaning formula.
    •    "Like Dissolves Like"- This phenomenon refers to soils getting dissolves by chemicals that are like them. Water-based detergents will dissolve water-based soils, and solvents made of oils will dissolve oil-based residues.

If a fire burns in the kitchen in your restaurant and leaves behind soils and soot residues, it is wise to call SERVPRO of Nashua at (603) 889-2311 immediately after the fire gets extinguished.

How Adversely Can Smoke Damage My Nashua Home Contents?

SERVPRO Helps Evaluate the Level of Damage and Use Advanced Cleaning Techniques to Reverse the Effects of Fire and Smoke Damage in Your Nashua Property

Although you might not worry much about smoke damage compared to other effects of fire, it can devastate your Nashua property. One unique aspect of smoke damage is that it can affect areas of a property that the heat or flames from the fire do not reach. Even an outdoor fire or one that only affects a detached section, such as a garage, can still cause damages inside the main house. Several factors combine, leading to such outcomes.

What characteristics of smoke are likely to worsen fire and smoke damage in my Nashua home?

It is standard for a fire to produce smoke as different materials combust. Experienced fire and smoke restoration technicians in Nashua are also aware of other common characteristics that smoke exhibits during a fire that influence the resultant damages, including:
    •    Accumulation of smoke deposits in enclosed spaces
    •    Penetration of smoke residues into older surfaces
    •    Accumulation of more smoke residues on synthetic fibers

Such outcomes are influenced by factors like cooler temperatures within enclosed spaces such as cabinets compared to the rest of the open rooms. Older surfaces, on the other hand, tend to be porous, thus allowing deeper penetration of smoke residues, while synthetic surfaces attract residues ionized during combustion, thus collecting more deposits.

How does understanding smoke behavior help when dealing with damages?

Understanding smoke movement patterns help establish where most residues are likely to accumulate for better focus during cleaning. It also eliminates the chances of overlooking some areas such as locked cabinets where you might not expect smoke deposits.

Apart from helping pinpoint soiled areas, understanding smoke behavior can also help in making a better choice of cleaning resources. For instance, when our SERVPRO technicians notice that smoke filtered into a room with closets or cabinets, we prepare several resources to help with cleaning, odor management, and prevention of residues from setting. Typical resources include:
    •    Dry cleaning sponges
    •    Denatured alcohol
    •    Sanding equipment

In the case of old surfaces where we expect deeper penetration of residues, we prepare for several cleaning steps starting with mechanical action to help dislodge residues without sending them deeper into the material. One effective mechanical action is vacuuming the area before using other cleaning procedures such as wet cleaning with solutions.

What signs indicate severe smoke damage on contents?

Smoke tends to deposit residues on items. However, the accumulation of residues does not necessarily lead to serious damage. Most residues are easy to wipe off with a cleaning sponge or wet cleaning procedures. However, some outcomes signify severe damage and may include:
    •    Yellowing
    •    Staining
    •    Rusting
    •    Bad odor

The changes can appear on a wide range of materials, including plastics, ceramic items, metals, and fabrics. Our SERVPRO technicians use various approaches to clean your contents, thus reversing the damage, “Like it never even happened.”

Yellowing mostly happens on plastic items such as utensils, toys, appliances, or any other plastic item within your house. Whitening the items require a couple of supplies, including a chemical agent to reverse the yellowing, agitation resources, and rinsing or regular cleaning detergent.
Our technicians use chlorine bleach, hydrogen peroxide, or other specially formulated cleaning agents to help remove the yellowing. For small items such as utensils and toys without electrical components, we use emersion methods such as ultrasonic cleaning. The system creates and collapses millions of bubbles, and the energy released helps agitate the affected surfaces. Such a system also helps in other aspects of cleaning, such as controlling the amount of cleaning agents used, the temperature of the solution, and increasing the dwell-time, thus improving the outcome.

Is it possible to reverse significant changes such as rusting or staining?

Smoke contains several substances, including particulate matter, water vapor, and chemicals such as nitrogen oxides and tar. When these substances are deposited on different contents in the house, they can cause staining or rust in metallic items or finishes. Our technicians inspect the affected material to determine whether restoration is possible. For fabrics, we use a variety of tests, including:
    •    Chemical tests
    •    Specific gravity test
    •    Burn test

Once we establish that restoration is possible, we use different approaches, including applying chemical agents, agitation, or sometimes we may use enzyme cleaning agents where necessary. For the best outcome, we focus on the stained section and then clean the entire item.

Replacing damaged contents is a costly affair. Call SERVPRO of Nashua to help find a way to save your valuables. You can reach us at (603) 889-2311. We’re Faster to Any Size Disaster.

Check Out the Smoke and Fire Recovery Strategies SERVPRO Customizes for Nashua Households

Few events are more disruptive to your family’s daily life than a residential fire and its aftermath. As you try to get things sorted, it becomes clear quickly that you need reliable and expert help to take the first steps back towards a normal existence.

Is It Safe for Your Loved Ones to Breathe the Smoke?

Fire and smoke damage in Nashua exposes your  home and family to airborne particulates, even if the blaze seemed minimal and extinguished swiftly. Smoke contains tiny bits of incompletely combusted structural components and contents.  They drift on air currents and through your HVAC system, containing bits of the following materials:

  • Plastics and foams
  • Rubbers
  • Organic fabrics, including cotton, wool, and linen
  • Carpets
  • Wood and wood products
  • Synthetic fabrics
  • Asbestos and lead-containing materials

Can Smoke Be Cleared Out of My House?

Fire and smoke damage present severe air-quality issues. Cleaning the air of contaminants is high on the list of tasks of the SERVPRO plan. Opening windows and using industrial axial fans to move air out is one method. Another strategy our trained technicians use to reduce the toxic air contamination in affected spaces is the employment of an air scrubbing system. 

How Is an Air Scrubber Set Up?

Our team encloses areas of your smoke-damaged home with heavy-duty plastic, sealing the edges of the partition with negative air pressure generated by the air scrubbing machine. We might partition off whole rooms, or build smaller chambers inside large areas with polyvinyl chloride (PVC) pipe or steel tension bars.

What Does an Air Scrubber Do?

Air scrubbing equipment forces the air inside the enclosure through high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filters before exhausting it to the outside. The United States Department of Energy (DOE) mandates that the filters remove at least 99.97 percent of particles 0.3 micrometers or larger. HEPA filters can clear most smoke particles from the air inside the containment areas we build. 

The fire and smoke damage mitigations technicians at SERVPRO of Nashua improve air quality outcomes with proven techniques. Call (603) 889-2311 for a fast and professional response to your household’s crisis.

What Do You Do After Your Nashua House Floods?

5/9/2020 (Permalink)

House Flooded after storm Call us as soon as possible after a water loss event for the best outcome.

SERVPRO knows seeing your Nashua home flooded can be overwhelming, bring in professional help to make the restoration process go smoother

Floodwater in any part of your home is overwhelming to look at. One of the first actions you should take when it happens in your home is to engage a professional restoration services company.

Can Carpet with Flood Damage Get Cleaned for Reuse?
Flooring often gets the brunt of the loss when flood damage happens in a Nashua home. Once groundwater enters and saturates carpeting, in most cases, the carpet requires disposal as a biohazard due to the contaminated nature of the floodwater. Anything it runs through, it brings into the house, and sometimes the water has chemicals, debris, or sewage. Any of those elements alone make the water dangerous, and often there is a combination of those in the water. This is why SERVPRO techs wear protective clothing and use respirators to avoid aspirating the water vapor.

Signs of Water Damage to Flooring and What to Do About It
Once saturated, flooring types react in different ways to water exposure. Here are some of the most common situations that occur after an inch of floodwater enters a home:

    •    Floating and laminate floors - this type of floor covering tends to lose adhesion after exposure to water. SERVPRO technicians can remove the tiles and inspect the pieces to determine the nature of the construction materials. In some cases, the tiles can get cleaned, disinfected, and re-installed.
    •    Carpet and padding - is categorically a loss. The carpet does not have the potential to get returned to a sanitary state for reuse, and frequently the backing comes loose and causes permanent damage that is not restorable.
    •    Hardwood Flooring - many factors determine the outcome. For one, the amount of water exposure and also the type of composite materials that make up the flooring. Engineered hardwood with veneer topping may come loose or otherwise deteriorate. Solid hardwood floorboards may buckle or warp, but often can get dried, sanded and refinished, thereby saving the investment.
    •    Ceramic Tile -If the seal on the grout line is intact and the tile itself is in good shape, this type of flooring has the best potential for a full recovery. No seepage into the subfloor and no absorption of the floodwater means after extraction of the water, drying, and disinfection, the flooring stays in the home.

Proactive Actions Homeowners Can Take When Flooding Happens
If there are electrical outlets in danger of coming into contact with floodwater, turn off the electricity to the home, if it is safe to do so. If not, vacate the property and inform anyone entering the home of the potential for shock. Other efforts from homeowners that help lessen loss include:
    •    Removal of small items from the floor
    •    Take valuables out of the home
    •    Important documents should get removed
    •    Small furnishings that are easy to move should get relocated

Professional Extraction and Drying is a Must After Water Damage
SERVPRO technicians have certifications in handling biohazards and have experience dealing with the removal of contaminated floodwater safely. They can quickly extract the water and determine the migration path within the home with their advanced moisture detection equipment. This can assist in locating areas with water loss that may be outside the initial flood zone within the home, so nothing gets missed during the restoration process.

Once the techs extract the maximum amount of water, ascertained by doing "dry" passes where little to no moisture gets picked up by the equipment, they move on to the drying phase. Careful goals get set for drying times, and numerous air movers paired with dehumidifiers get deployed to bring down the moisture rapidly. The technicians carefully monitor this process to ensure the timeline gets maintained for completing this phase of the restoration.

Is It Possible to Remove Floodwater Odors By Drying?
In most situations, the odors will not diminish very much through drying. This is because the odorous molecules remain, and although the professional disinfectant and cleaning agents used by SERVPRO tech can markedly reduce musty water odors, sometimes stronger applications get used to eradicate odors fully. For airborne particles, the very safe hydroxyl generators use UV rays to eliminate odors and stop them from spreading. Thermal fogging is also a very effective way to eliminate foul scents through the use of a heated solvent delivered as a fog that penetrates items and structural elements throughout the property and makes odors a thing of the past.

SERVPRO of Nashua at (603) 889-2311 has the tools and equipment to clean up, dry, and restore local properties with flood damage. Call us as soon as possible after a water loss event for the best outcome.

From the moment that our professionals arrive at your home, we can get to work quickly on extracting the water from the affected areas. The longer this pooled water gets permitted to stay, the more damage and farther reach it has. Ultimately, this makes it exponentially more challenging to dry the area thoroughly. This extraction typically involves a combination of equipment such as wet-vacs, portable pumps, and even a pump truck from our SERVPRO fleet if a high enough volume of water is present inside your house.

Once the standing water has gotten removed, air movers and dehumidifiers work to dry out open areas of your home. Drying mats could get used to penetrate beneath the top layer of flooring and eliminate moisture seepage here. In the same way, our injectidry system can prevent moisture from persisting in wall cavities by forcing air through hoses inserted through holes commonly drilled (and then later repaired) behind baseboards.

Can SERVPRO Help Me I Fear there is A Mold Infestation in My Home?

4/17/2020 (Permalink)

Mold on the ceiling of a attic. White Mold, Black Mold, It Still Needs Removal and Antimicrobial Application--Call SERVPRO for a Fast Response in Nashua

Nashua Home Owners Need Not Fear Mold Infestations--Just Call SERVPRO

Few homeowners in Nashua have not yet heard at least one frightening tale of black mold and the harm it caused somebody. However, the reality of these stories is that true black mold incidents are highly uncommon and extremely rare. A mold of any color or variety is not as scary as stories like this might lead you to believe.

SERVPRO wants property owners in Nashua to understand truthful information about mold. One fact that we want our customers to know is that the color of the mold appearing on walls and ceilings in your home does not indicate if your home contains a harmful variety or not.

Many of the strains of mold that appear black in color are not any more hazardous than white, green, or orange molds. Many molds are necessary to break down and decompose organic matter in nature. However, any mold colonies that grow too large and begin to colonize areas of your home require professional remediation.

The fungus itself may not cause health effects but the damage created should concern you. Clothing that becomes infested with mold and its spores can wear out quicker, develop musty and unpleasant odors, and show permanent stains. Even though the majority of materials targeted by mold in your house are much more durable than many clothing items, mold damage can destroy them if given enough time.

Another reason why black mold may seem so terrifying is that this color often represents the unknown, hidden and harmful facets of things, or even superstitions. With mold, the color rarely indicates its potential to cause health effects or how aggressively it may destroy materials inside a home. Many species of mold, regardless of color, can cause problems, and this is why SERVPRO AMRT applied microbial remediation technicians take every mold damage situation seriously.

Finding Mold in the Attic of Your Nashua Residence Leads to Control of the Situation

Nashua is the location of many of New England's best-looking homes. The striking architecture of most promises beautiful homes complete with spacious attics full of surprises from the past. What often a remains hidden, though, is vast microbial growth.

In Nashua, SERVPRO cleans up mold located in the attic of many homes on a regular basis. Doing so is crucial to the health of the home and those living there. Mold and other microorganisms can pass easily through tiny openings in the ducts found inside the typical attic.

Many microbes present in an attic may have traveled there through the ducts, to begin with, showing how easily this can happen. As air flows through a tube, a slight vacuum can form, suctioning any nearby spores and then depositing them in other areas of the home. Finding mold in the attic can indicate mold problems in other locations in your home.

The technicians at SERVPRO hold certificates from the IICRC, showing expertise in Applied Microbial Remediation (AMRT). Ridding your home of excess fungi and spores through the process of mold remediation does not eliminate these organisms. Doing so is an impossible feat, as mold exists in every corner of the planet. The conditions which permit mold to overgrow are what we can control, and this, in turn, controls how much microbial activity occurs inside your residence. When growth is at a standstill, mold damage also remains under your control.

The treatment for an attic with signs of the mold includes the application of Concrobium. This is a commercial-grade mold inhibitor that is safe for use around people, pets, plants, and even damp carpeting and other delicate items in your home that ozone can harm. For large, open areas, we can apply this like we would apply paint – with brushes or rollers. In tight spaces, where access is more difficult, we apply antimicrobial sprays. When applied like this, the liquid penetrates extremely well. Regardless of location, Concrobium dries clear and provides lasting protection. We can also direct antifungal agents using fogging machines and HEPA filtered air scrubbers.

Belongings stored in the attic can also suffer from microbial growth. Cleaning each item and ensuring it remains dry afterward can help prevent damage from occurring. We can pack your items up and perform this task at our location or do the work on them while still in your attic.

Whenever mold is located in an attic, a complete examination and inspection of the roof and all of its components can provide answers about the source of the moisture that boosted the mold's growth. Correction of any discoveries should happen as quickly as possible.

We employ the latest in technological advances and proven methods to secure your home after a mold infestation. SERVPRO of Nashua understands your concerns about mold, especially black mold, and the damage these microbes can cause your family and home. Call us today at (603) 889-2311, so that we can put your fears into a better perspective.
