SERVPRO Pros Use Reliable Tools to Remove Fire Damage from Nashua Homes 

Nashua, New Hampshire, is home to over 89,000 citizens as of 2018. The Gate City is currently crucial to such businesses as: 

  • Dell
  • Arista Networks
  • Amphenol
  • Silicon Labs
  • SRC Inc., a nonprofit formerly known as Syracuse Research Corporation 

The city's name originally comes from the Nashuway tribe, Nashua being a Penacook word referring to both a pebbly-bottomed beautiful stream and land located between two rivers. Nashua is situated between the Nashua and Merrimack Rivers and was initially formed by acquiring a 1673 land grant for a settlement named Dunstable. 

Historically, Nashua was well-known for its textile manufacturing. Still, when demand declined due to advancements in technology and agriculture, much of this crucial industry moved to the southern United States, closer to where staple textile crops like cotton were cultivated. Manufacturing in Nashua waned between World War I until after the end of World War II. 

Two significant industries played a significant role in the city's revival in the mid-twentieth century: defense and technology. Today, Nashua is a booming New England city with extensive recognition for being one of America's best places to live. The city won the number one spot for this category in Money magazine's annual surveys in 1987 and 1998. 

The Nashua Fire of 1930 

The Gate City is, unfortunately, no stranger to the devastation that fire can cause to a community. In May of 1930, the Nashua Fire destroyed 500 citizens' homes and incurred over $2,000,000 in property damages, a staggering figure for the time. Other reported properties razed by the flames included two churches and four manufacturing plants. 

The fire, which ignited somewhere along a wooden Boston & Maine railroad bridge, was exacerbated by winds exceeding 40 miles per hour, which fanned the flames toward Nashua's residential area. It took several fire rescue teams from neighboring communities to successfully suppress the inferno. 

However, during such trying times, heroes are bound to show themselves. Almost a dozen priests, including Fathers Ubald Simoneau and Isadore Janelle, who coordinated to lead 600 children to safety as the flames threatened their church during a play performed in the hall. Father Janelle also salvaged some of the church's sacred vessels before collapsing and being rushed to the hospital. The clergymen's swift actions saved hundreds of lives from the flames that would engulf their church a mere ten minutes later. 

In the 1950s, a new church was constructed, and by 1960 the burned convent had also been restored. To this day, the Infant Jesus complex is used as a church, convent, and school. 

The Nashua Fire Rescue 

Collaboration is a vital part of what has helped keep Nashua safe from destructive fires. The Nashua Fire Rescue evolved from a volunteer fire department in the 19th century into a full-time effort nearly a century later. The fire department in Nashua is New Hampshire's second-largest and currently has an Insurance Services Office (ISO) 2 rating. 

The ISO's Fire Suppression Rating Schedule, of FSRS, relies primarily on four crucial factors that affect local insurance rates: 

  • The effectiveness of local emergency communications and responsiveness
  • Community outreach and education efforts regarding fire safety
  • The quality of your local fire department's staff, including the training and availability of firehouses near communities
  • Water supply availability for fire suppression, including the prevalence of operational fire hydrants 

Fire departments are scored from 1 to 10, with 5 being both the mean and median score. A 1 is awarded to 0.71% of all communities participating in the FSRS program. 

Nashua's Fire-Rescue service sports 176 career firefighters and administrative staff, six stations, a training site, and a dispatch facility. The team responds to a whopping 20,000 service calls per year to protect over 7,000 businesses and almost 90,000 citizens. The average response time in 90% of cases is less than four minutes after a service call. 

Fire suppression is essential for keeping communities safe. SERVPRO technicians aid in the restoration process after a fire is extinguished to keep communities safe after a disaster while preventing further damages. 

How Do SERVPRO Technicians Remove Fire Damage Odors from Nashua Properties? 

SERVPRO technicians are certified to provide Nashua homes with fire restoration services covering everything from removing unsalvageable debris to performing necessary structural and contents repairs to restore a residence to its preloss condition. 

Smoke and soot damages can cause significant stains on odors, particularly on porous surfaces like clothing, upholstery, drapes, and carpeting. Water damage may also be present from fire suppression performed by firefighting services. HVAC systems and ventilation intakes can also house copious amounts of soot, requiring various degrees of both manual and chemical intervention to salvage ductwork and mitigate odors. 

SERVPRO technicians use EPA-registered solutions to combat soot and odors. Cleaning products include: 

  • Enzyme digesters that turn oily, odorous protein residues from cooking fires into water-soluble byproducts for easy cleaning and odor control
  • Solvent-based deodorizers that can be dispersed in sprays, thermal foggers, and injection systems
  • Biocides and alkaline cleaners that combat heavy soils, mold, and other related concerns from both the fire and fire suppression
  • Some abrasion cleaning mediums, like soda ash, can aid odor control efforts
  • HEPA filter air scrubbers capture soot particles and other contaminants in the air as small as 0.3 microns 

Hydroxyl generators are another noteworthy means of odor control that can also eliminate volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from an environment. These generators dismantle these concerns at the particle level and mitigate the effects of over 5,000 known chemicals and compounds that can affect a home's comfort. 

SERVPRO of Nashua renders emergency fire damage response service for homeowners that is Faster To Any Size Disaster. Call (603) 889-2311 to have an experienced crew at your home to coordinate with you and your insurance adjuster.

How is Restoring Commercial Properties Different from Residential?

A Commercial Fire Damage Repair Can Be Complicated by Architecture and More Extensive Structural Components. SERVPRO Works with Nashua Businesses to Deliver On-time and On-budget Restoration

What coverage does a business have for fire losses?

The kind of insurance coverage you have for your Nashua business can vary depending on policy and provider. Business insurance typically covers lost revenues, whereas a separate policy covers the structure and contents. We understand that insurers divide the system and contents. Our technicians clean these two aspects separately while recording any works in a digital inventory. Commercial builds usually have a more complex structure and structural components such as archways, chandeliers, and foyers. Our experience allows us to be confident of removing smoke deposits and returning your business to a preloss condition.

What are the separate categories for commercial restoration?

  • The structure may include any brick and mortar or building assembly.
  • Structural components could include electrical fittings, chandeliers, or other decors.
  • Contents refer to furniture or other items and ornaments in your business.

Are lighting fixtures restorable after a fire?

When conducting commercial fire damage repair in your Nashua business, it is vital to pay extra attention to lighting fixtures. These fittings usually have crevices or cracks that can become coated in soots and other soils. Without addressing these areas, your business may continue to carry burnt odors or show noticeable signs of the fire event. Lighting fixtures like chandeliers can often require specific and targeted cleaning to return them to a preloss condition. Our crew chiefs have the knowledge and access to technology that allows them to perform effective repair.

How are chandeliers cleaned after a fire?

  • Hand-cleaning delicate chandeliers can be useful for handling light to moderate smoke damages.
  • Low-pressure steam cleaning can dislodge soots without risking damage to the material structure.
  • Ultrasonic cleaning methods usually give the best results providing that the chandelier can withstand full-submersion in a cleaning fluid.

Businesses can sustain all kinds of fire damage affecting the structure, contents, and components. Contact SERVPRO of Nashua at (603) 889-2311.

How Can Owners Return Their Homes to a Clean, Safe Condition after a Mold Infestation?

hand peeling wallpaper away revealing mold Do you know how to locate and remediate mold? SERVPRO does!

Nashua Residents Call SERVPRO for Thorough Repair after a Mold Infestation 

Is Mold Always a Threat to Area Homes? 

In its inert state, mold spores are no more dangerous to Nashua homes than house dust and almost as common. SERVPRO response teams can remove the water, causing the spores to expand and grow, then remove any mold growths before they spread further.  

Why is SERVPRO a Preferred Choice for Area Homes? 

Our response team technicians understand that mold damage repair in Nashua starts with stopping the mold from causing more damage to the home's unaffected parts. To help mitigate to this end, we establish containment with the following actions: 

  • Install plastic sheeting to seal off contaminated rooms and hallways.
  • Turn off the HVAC system and cover all vents to prevent cross-contamination throughout the home.
  • Create negative air pressure in the contaminated areas to direct airflow outside the home.  

Our SERVPRO technicians also build 'clean rooms' that allow them to leave tools and protective clothing in a sealed area to avoid spreading mold to other home parts. Once established, they clean everything in the affected area. If the structural property cannot be cleaned, technicians go to different methods.  

Can Your Technicians Repair or Restore Everything?  

In most cases, yes. We have the skills to replace wall and ceiling tiles, then paint everything to match the color of the infested panels. Technicians use scrapers and sanders to remove the surface layer of wall support carefully and other structures to get at the mold spores deep inside. If the mold spores deeply penetrated a large area, they also can use a soda-blasting device to dig them out without further damaging the wood. We can also partner with reputable companies to facilitate the build back. 

Call SERVPRO of Nashua today at (603) 889-2311 to begin repairing your home. No agency can eliminate mold, but we can stop the damage to your residence, so it looks "Like it never even happened."

Can SERVPRO Save My Hardwood Floors After Flood Water Removal?

Nashua Homeowners Are Keen To Save Expensive Hardwood Flooring After Flood Water Removal

Hardwood flooring adds something special to a Nashua home. The look of hardwood floors is elegant, warm, and luxurious. Wood flooring often represents a significant investment, and so of course, residents are keen to keep their floors in good condition.

Our customers who need flood water removal in Nashua often tell us they are concerned about their hardwood floors. They want to know if the floor is salvageable or damaged beyond repair by the floodwater.

What does water do to wood floors?

Wood absorbs moisture from the air around it, and of course, it can absorb water from its surface. Unfortunately, this makes hardwood floors susceptible to damage during a flood. Water can cause:

  • Cupping – moisture causes the planks to curve downwards
  • Crowning – moisture causes the planks to bend upwards
  • Buckling – planks lift away from the subfloor altogether

When should a homeowner call SERVPRO?

Call SERVPRO of Nashua as soon as you realize floodwater has touched your hardwood floor. We're Faster To Any Size Disaster, which is essential because time is of the essence if you want to save your floor. The longer the wood is wet, the more likely it is to cup, crown, or buckle. There is also more risk of water getting into the subfloor and a higher chance of fungal growth.

Please put in a call to us at once. We will be in touch within an hour to arrange a time for our team to come to your home and begin the mitigation process.

What should a homeowner do while waiting for the remediation team to arrive?

A homeowner's actions depend on how safe the situation is. If the water is from a river or sewer, it could contain contaminants, and it is not safe to touch it. Please wait for the experts.

However, if the flood is from indoor plumbing (not the toilet or sewage) or a leaking appliance, it may be safe for you to mop up the water carefully. If it is safe to do so, we recommend:

  • Wearing protective gloves and an apron
  • Using a mop or microfiber cloth to soak up water gently
  • Moving rugs, books, magazines, textiles, or any other colored items away from the floor to prevent further staining

Please do not attempt to clean up large amounts of water – leave that to the professionals. Do not try to clean up if you are unsure whether the water contains contaminants, or if it is not safe for you to be in the room. Always put your safety first.

What factors affect whether SERVPRO can save the floor?

There is the possibility of saving cupped or crowned floors, but buckled floors must usually be replaced.

The type of floor makes a difference in the damage and the remediation process. Real hardwood floors consist of a single layer of wood, which can be dried and refinished. Real floors are more straightforward to salvage than engineered floors, with multiple thin sheets of woods placed in different directions. The various layers can crack underwater damage, rendering them unsalvageable.

There are other factors which affect whether we can save the floor:

  • How much water is present and how much has sunk into the floor
  • Whether the water has penetrated to the sub-floor
  • How long the water has been in contact with the floor – it is easier to save floors within 24 hours of the incident
  • The category of water – we cannot keep floors flooded with blackwater (which contains sewage and other contaminants)

What equipment does SERVPRO use to tackle water-damaged flooring?

We use moisture meters, moisture probes, and thermo-hygrometers to assess the amount of moisture present, how deep the water goes, and the humidity of the air across the floor's surface.

We employ truck-mounted and free-standing pumps to remove floodwater from the floor and prepare it for the next stage of cleaning and drying. The more water we draw, the better the floor's chance of survival. When the floor is clear of water, we use dehumidifiers and air movers to lower the humidity and encourage drying.

We can also apply microbial and deodorizing treatments to the floor if needed.

Can householders do anything to prevent flood damage?

Although you cannot change the laws of physics and prevent the wood from warping under the influence of water, you can make your floors more resistant by taking care of the finish. Ask your installer for tips on how best to care for your floor's distinct finish and make it more robust.

You can also flood-proof the room by ensuring door and window seals are in good condition and keeping appliances and plumbing in good condition.

Different Kinds of Soot Call For Different Cleaning Methods – Hiring Professionals in Nashua Ensures the Job is Done Right

Small fires are more common in Nashua than large ones that consume a residence. Quickly contained, these small blazes can still leave smoke residue throughout the home. An oil furnace puff back can spread soot everywhere with no fire involved. SERVPRO has technicians, equipment, and expertise to mitigate soot damage.

If I Wipe Down My Walls Won’t That Take Care of It?
While kitchen fires are the most common source of residential fires, faulty appliances, and other issues can cause them as well. The fire may not have been extensive enough to char the walls or peel the paint, but they can still do damage. Since you can see soot, it looks simple to clean. But using the wrong cleaners can make the situation even worse. Fire cleanup in Nashua needs to be handled by professional technicians. Here’s what you need to understand about soot:
    •    Soot is smoke residue that has settled.
    •    It is made up of microscopic particles that spread rapidly.
    •    It is acidic in nature and when in contact with skin, can worsen the damage.
    •    It causes hidden damage.
    •    To neutralize soot, specific chemicals are needed.
    •    There are several types of soot, each requiring a different cleaning agent.
    •    It eats away at the material it covers if left untreated.
    •    Has a strong odor.

Cleaning Up a Smoke Damaged Home
Soot gets into the furniture, the cracks in the ceiling, and everything in between. SERVPRO has experienced technicians that understand the proper fire cleanup and removal of fire damage from your home. Our fire and smoke restoration technicians (FSRT) address the situation with advanced technology and the best tools for each situation. They use HEPA vacuums and filters, dry sponges, and potent cleaning agents to leave your home, “Like it never even happened.” Contact SERVPRO of Nashua at (603) 889-2311 for quality fire cleanup services.

A Storm Left Me Dealing With Flood Damage in My Basement. How Do I Restore It?

Lightning Strike/ Storm Art Storms can bring floodwater and storm damage. The professionals at SERVPRO are always on call to handle your water damage restoration needs.

Contact SERVPRO Technicians to Help You Perform Flood Damage Restoration in Your Nashua Residence. 

Floodwater in a home can lead to extensive damage that can be expensive to repair if ignored for an extended period. Involve SERVPRO restorers to return your Nashua property to its pre-damage state in the shortest time possible. We have decades of experience and hi-tech equipment that helps us to complete the restoration process with minimum disruption to the customer.

What are the causes of basement flooding?

Flood damage can be frustrating to most property owners, especially those who do not know what to do. Our technicians can help you handle the storm flood damage in your Nashua property. We also offer emergency cleanup services after storms. It is essential to know the common causes of basement flooding to take preventive measures. Some of the common causes of basement flooding include:

Poor basement sealing: During the construction of your property, the basement foundation and tiles require proper sealing. If it was not done correctly or deteriorated with time, water from the ground could begin to seep into your basement.

Poor downspout installation: Downspouts direct water away from the structure and its foundation. However, if the downspouts are missing or broken, water can pool next to the home. 

Gutter debris: Gutters are vital in moving water away from the property. However, clogged gutters with twigs and seed pods can stop water from moving off the roof, away from your home.

How can you extract the water effectively?

Water extraction is an essential task that speeds up the drying process. We use our state-of-the-art equipment to speed up the extraction process. However, we first have to inspect if the floodwater contains debris and dirt. If the water is clear, we can use an electric submersible pump powered by our portable generator. The pump eliminates the suction lift limitations and provides continuous quiet operation. It can move up to 1000 gallons of water per minute through a 4" to 2" hose. The machine extracts the excess water leaving only moisture behind. We can eliminate the moisture using air movers and dehumidifiers. 

How do restorers get rid of odors in crawl spaces?

Our technicians understand that odors in crawl spaces may get into your home even after cleaning and thoroughly drying the property. Since it is challenging to maneuver crawl spaces, we can use the Aquafog Cherry Deodorizer to thermal fog the crawl space. The product gets into small cavities and cracks to combat odor molecules.  

Floodwater can devastate and frustrate homeowners, especially when the secondary damages begin to occur. Call SERVPRO of Nashua at (603) 889-2311 to get your property to its preloss state. “Like it never even happened.”

SERVPRO Can Perform Effective Water Restoration in Your Nashua Home

Plumbing issues are among the common causes of water damage in most properties in Nashua. Professional plumbers and water damage restoration experts may have to work closely together to identify any likely contamination in water and the problem's source to determine the right approach for mitigation and restoration.

When should I contact professional restorers?

Most water damage incidents call for fast extraction and drying to minimize damage. SERVPRO can use advanced equipment and tools to conduct water restoration in your Nashua residence. We use the necessary equipment depending on the level of standing water present in our customer's property. For example, if there are two or more inches of stagnant water in your house, we can use an electric submersible pump to extract it.

Unfortunately, even a small amount of water sipping into various surfaces in your property can cause mold growth, stain your walls, and warp your wooden surfaces if ignored for more than 48 hours. You need restoration services after any amount of water event that:

  • Saturates your upholstery and carpeting
  • Gets into a confined area or behind a wall
  • Touches your drywall
  • Creates a pool of water

When do you start the restoration process?

An efficient water restoration process needs to get a reputable plumber to fix the plumbing issues. It is possible to minimize damage by switching off the main water supply and removing the excess water. Minimizing the spread of contaminated water may be useful to contain damage, reducing the number of contents that need cleaning and disinfection. Mitigation can have a limited effect if you do not fix the plumbing issue first.

How do you dry carpeting?

A leaky supply line causes category one water damage since it releases clean water. In such an instance, our technicians do not need to clean or disinfect the affected area as we extract the excess water and dry it on time. Our SERVPRO technicians can use a self-propelled extraction tool to remove the excess water from your carpet. The machine only leaves moisture behind, which we can extract using indirect-fired furnaces. These tools can dry the area thoroughly. 

Water damage can cause health issues if ignored for an extended period. Contact SERVPRO of Nashua at (603) 889-2311 to handle the water damage in your property to make it "Like it never even happened."
