Fire Damage Experts In Nashua Talk About Integral Strategy And Planning

Any time a disaster occurs on your property in Nashua, it is wise to call in a professional restoration company such as SERVPRO. Fire damage is one of the most common types of insurance claims. Fires are also the most expensive claim, with each one costing over $50,000 on average. Damages due to a fire inside your home are costly compared to other types of damages because several different types of problems can occur. Any time fire damage occurs, the smoke coming from the fire can cause further issues besides the charred material generated from the blaze.

This is why our SERVPRO team always provides fast 24/7 service when helping you with your fire damage project in Nashua. We answer our phones at any time of the day and every day of the week. Our technicians are located in the region, giving us the ability to promptly arrive at your residence shortly after receiving your phone call.

Once we complete the initial inspection and estimate, we start to formulate a plan of completing all of the work needed. To make sure things get done as efficiently as possible, we develop an integrated strategy.

Planning the Restoration Process After Fire Damage

During this stage, we map on paper exactly which tasks need to be performed. We then figure out where each task fits into the overall restoration process. We know that proper pre-planning is essential when providing satisfactory job performance. Having priorities set and a solid plan that states which work gets done when can help prevent unnecessary work repetition and make the overall process run faster and more smoothly.

Why Not Let SERVPRO Handle Your Flood Damage Emergency

Our community surrounds the confluence of the Nashua and Merrimack Rivers, sharing their natural beauty and opportunities to enjoy water activities with our families and neighbors. On occasion, these waterways also cause stress for homeowners when flooding occurs on a seasonal basis or after heavy rains cause them to overflow their banks. If your home lies in the path of rising water from our local rivers, your lower levels can sustain flood damage to both the structure of your house and its contents. Fast relief from this disaster is in order when SERVPRO technicians arrive to help you remove the water and dry the interior quickly, restoring living areas as well as the storage and mechanical systems frequently found in the basement. 

Flood damage causes serious challenges for Nashua homeowners, and it can strike without much notice. The extent of the water intrusion can be significant as the rivers rise, far beyond your ability to mop up and solve yourself. Even homes equipped with sump pump systems or other waterproofing can become overwhelmed with the floodwaters, necessitating a professional response to the problem. The potent combination of our high-efficiency water removal and drying equipment partnered with our trained and certified technicians means your flooded basement or lower levels can be assessed within hours of your emergency call. A plan is developed to restore the damage immediately. Our fast reaction ensures the best outcome after standing water and moisture are removed as complications like mold growth or black water contamination are limited if we can manage the damage as soon as possible.

Can Hardwood Floors Be Saved After Kitchen Flooding?

SERVPRO equipment at work in kitchen Flood damage in your kitchen doesn't make for a happy home. SERVPRO techs are ready at a moment's notice for the water removal service you need.

SERVPRO Provides Water Damage Restoration in Nashua That Can Restore Hardwood Floors

Kitchen flooding is something that often happens in homes. A burst pipe, overflowing dishwasher, or water line to the refrigerator could be the cause. If the kitchen has hardwood floors, they can be permanently damaged if immediate mitigation does not occur.

Is Replacing the Floor the Only Option After Water Damage?

Hardwood floors are lovely. They are easy to care for and durable. One thing they do not like is moisture. When there is a water intrusion in the kitchen, the hardwood floors soak it up rapidly. It is vital to get professional help within the first twenty-four hours if you want to save your flooring. If you do not get water damage restoration help in Nashua, you could end up with:

  • Crowning – the water pushes the wood upward
  • Cupping – the moisture depresses the wood
  • Buckling – lifts the floorboards off the subflooring
  • Mold – can happen in less than 24 hours

Restoring Instead of Replacing

Genuine hardwood floors can be restored if dealt with quickly and professionally. Wood not only absorbs water but pulls moisture from the air. Hardwood floors can seem dry but have moisture underneath or trapped in the wood. We make sure the proper action gets taken to restore your hardwood floors.  Other services we provide include:

Maintaining Your Gutters Prevents Water Damage in Nashua

gutters filled with debris Clogged gutters cause water damage issues to your Nashua home. SERVPRO has you covered from start to finish on all water damages restoration services.

SERVPRO Tips for Your Nashua Home to Stop Damage by Water

Keeping your home’s gutters in good shape is one of the most important things you can do to avoid water damage to your home. The one thing gutters are designed to do is to channel water away from your foundation. They are critical in protecting the structural integrity of your home. However, for gutters to work correctly, they need to be kept in shape and free of holes, clogs, and sags. If your gutters have caused water damage to your home, you may be wondering where near me is a water damage remediation company, such as SERVPRO, who can help you clean up the mess.  

Most gutter problems are easily avoidable with proper upkeep to your Nashua home. It is worth the time and effort to avoid water damage to your Nashua home. Gutters are something where regular maintenance and inspection can stop more significant problems down the road. 

Clogged Gutters 

If left unattended, the most common problem is that downspouts and gutters get clogged with debris, which renders them useless. The extra weight of twigs, leaves, and standing water can make them sag as well and pull away from the fascia. Clean out your gutters once a year or twice if there are a lot of nearby trees. Maintenance should be scheduled four times a year, with more checks after big storms. If you are comfortable on a ladder, cleaning your gutters is possible on your own if your house is not unusually tall. Once the muck is cleared out, flush the gutters with a garden hose to ensure they flow well. 

If you still wind up having a problem with clogged gutters causing water damage to your home in any way, our trained staff at SERVPRO can come out and help you. We have the tools and experience to correct the damage and prevent more from occurring. 

Sagging Gutters 

Generally, this is a problem with the hardware which secures the gutters to the fascia. The fasteners could have backed out of the wood, the hangers may have deteriorated over time, or are spaced too far apart to support the whole weight of the gutters. As soon as you notice this problem, get new hangers right away to prevent any water damage. The fasteners are inexpensive, and this is an easy fix. 

Holes and Leaks 

You can seal gutter joints that are leaky by caulking the joint with gutter sealant on the inside. A tube is only a few dollars, and gutter sealant can be used to fill minuscule holes. Bigger holes need patches. 

Gutters that are not operating the way they should can cause severe water damage to your home. Once you realize there is a problem, contact SERVPRO of Nashua right away.  (603) 889-2311.

Three Simple Steps for Taking the Stink Out of Fire Damage in Nashua Homes

SERVPRO Technicians Follow a Multi-step Process for Odor Removal

When we think about fire damage, we imagine charred walls, burned carpets, and collapsed ceilings. Our minds tend to picture the worst scenarios because fire is a very destructive force. However, there are lots of ways in which even a small blaze can cause significant devastation.

The common misconception is that the flames themselves pose the biggest threat. This is not usually true, particularly when it comes to fire damage in Nashua homes. Much harder to deal with can be smoke and soot. The stains are difficult to remove; they contain harsh toxins, leaving an extremely stubborn odor.

This lingering, acrid odor requires expert attention from a fire damage repair company like SERVPRO. Please keep reading to determine how our technicians use cutting-edge deodorization techniques to get homes smelling fresh again.

Removing the Source

Before bringing any deodorizing instruments or tools into your home, the SERVPRO team first carries out a full inspection. This allows them to assess the extent of the problem and identify which fire damaged items need removing. If structural materials have been charred, they remove as much of this as possible.

Preparing the Deodorizer

There are all kinds of different ways to ‘deodorize’ a fire damaged room or area of a house. The reason for this is because the effectiveness of the process often depends on getting the application right. The deodorizing particles released into the area must be able to make contact with the lingering odor particles to neutralize them.

To do this, they need to travel and disperse in the same way as the bad smell did. For fire damaged properties, this typically means that a fogging device or machine is used. Smoke does not flood an area; it travels around it in a kind of mist formation. This is why the SERVPRO technicians apply deodorizing chemicals, sanitizers, and neutralizers as a fine ‘mist’ spray.

Sealing and Containment

In some cases, it is also possible to seal smoke odors away beneath a layer of paint. This will not always be a suitable method, but it is one of the most efficient. If we believe that it can be effective, we save you time and money by taking this quicker, more affordable step. However, sealing and containment are only really viable in mild to moderate fires, in which walls and ceilings have sustained primarily aesthetic damage.

The damage caused by soot and smoke can be extensive, but it does not have to be permanent. Reliable, effective fire damage repairs and remediation services are just a phone call away. SERVPRO of Nashua is based in your local area, and we are here to help you. Call us 24/7 at (603) 889-2311.

As leading water restoration professionals, we have large loss drying solutions for Nashua businesses. 

Pumping out standing water is the initial action that must occur before other mitigation and restoration actions can happen. After flooding or burst pipes, pooling can be substantial and require credible solutions that remove high volumes fast, like a pump truck or submersible unit. Standing water and trapped moisture must get removed from:

  • Carpets
  • Hardwood flooring
  • HVAC system
  • Wall materials

How Can We Prevent Content Losses After Water Exposure?

Protecting furniture, stock, inventory, documents, and other items is an objective of water removal in Nashua office buildings. Cleaning textiles and carpets cannot happen without first removing standing water, but this also applies to on-site drying efforts with tools like axial air movers and dehumidifiers. In many situations, it is an efficient practice to remove contents to allow trailered desiccants a faster resolution on moisture extraction and evaporation with warm air exhaust.

Water removal hinges on a quick response. Our SERVPRO of Nashua team will show We’re Faster To Any Size Disaster when you call (603) 889-2311.
