How Water Loss Events Can Lead to Mold Damage in Nashua

How We Use Desiccation during Water Removal to Protect Against Moldy Areas in Your Nashua Home

Water loss incidents in Nashua can cause a home to have a damper environment or standing water in some areas. It is easier to see puddles on your floor, but damp air can also cause problems and make breathing inside air uncomfortable.  

Overdrying can also cause problems, so we use unique instruments that keep our machinery from doing so during water removal projects in Nashua. These pieces of equipment do not become as crucial during the use of pumps and extraction wands as they do when we turn on our desiccation machinery.  

Desiccation pulls moisture out of the air. The removal of water vapor forces moisture trapped behind less-permeable coverings, such as vinyl wall coverings and gloss paints, into the atmosphere and then into our machines. As this occurs, taking readings to prevent the over-drying of your house's interior components becomes very important.  

Everything in the typical home includes some moisture content. While things may seem dry under normal circumstances, even the driest wood still contains some small percentage of moisture. Dropping below this through induced environmental changes in your home can cause permanent damage. SERVPRO technicians know the desired amounts of everyday materials and can easily prevent such damage from happening.  

Moisture readers tell us the amount of moisture inside anything we test. The items we check with our readers include wood floors, trim, and furniture. Without our testing machinery, these items could end up too dry and split, crack, peel, or become damaged in other ways. We want to return your home to its preloss state, "Like it never even happened." Allowing the things inside your residence to end up too dry keeps us from achieving our goal of helping you and your family.  

Call SERVPRO of Nashua for all of your home's restoration and mitigation needs, particularly when water removal services can help. Our 24-hour services number, (603) 889-2311, is always answered to serve you better.

Extreme Weather Causes Flood, Storm, and Wind-Related Damage in Nashua

Nothing changes more than the weather, and the aftermath of extreme weather in Nashua is a change most homeowners do not relish. Heavy precipitation, high winds, and stormy conditions can wreak severe damage to residential property, sometimes causing enough harm to force families to temporary lodgings. Minimizing the disruption to your happy family life is our goal as we work to mitigate the damage done by violent and punishing storms. 

Flood, storm, and wind damage in Nashua can devastate your life as well as your home. The force of straight line and tumultuous power of tornadic winds can rip roofs off their supports and send trees and utility poles crashing into the exterior and windows of your house. Once breaching the external integrity of your house, heavy snow, ice, and rain make their way into the interior. From top to bottom, the structural components of your dwelling absorb copious quantities of moisture, starting a cycle of damage and deterioration. 

When SERVPRO arrives, a seasoned project manager evaluates the situation. Our crews tarp and board up areas open to the elements to prevent further water incursion and protect the spaces while technicians begin implementation of the tasks listed on the manager’s work plan.

If possible, we create areas within your dwelling where you and your family can live during the work. Contents damaged by the storm’s effects might be packed out, tracked by our Content Claim Inventory System (CCIS), and cleaned and dried by technicians at our productions facility. SERVPRO contains the damaged areas with physical barriers and sometimes negative pressure air scrubbing systems to prevent the migration of water and drift of residues. 

We use powerful pumps and extractors to remove standing water and industrial strength air movers, heaters, and dehumidifiers to reduce moisture to normal levels. The SERVPRO remediation crew spends the time and effort necessary to return the interior of your home to preloss condition. 

SERVPRO of Nashua is the right call when fierce storms visit severe harm to your home. Call us day or night at (603) 889-2311, and a highly-qualified team of experts soon will be on the way.

Water Removal and Recovery for Flooded Nashua Basements

The basement of your Nashua home could be the location for storage, laundry, or extra living space. While you have many options with this lowest level of your home, it is also the most susceptible to situations like flooding. With something as simple as a broken window in the small area above the ground where your foundation gets exposed to the elements, you can allow water to flow into your home unabated. While you might not know how to stop the situation once it has started, our professionals can help to clean up the mess and restore the damage fast.

Many phases make up flood removal and damage restoration for your Nashua home, even if these effects only occur in your basement. Our SERVPRO team has effective and advanced equipment designed to extract floodwater and dry up the area quickly. We can set up these machines as soon as we arrive, and with a 24-hour response to emergencies like flooding, our team can arrive quickly to get mitigation started to prevent further loss.

When our team first arrives at your home, and we begin our initial assessment of the water damage, some of our professionals get tasked with moving at-risk items to a safe area. If it gets determined that the damage is likely to remain in the basement area, many of these items can get safely stored in an unaffected portion of your property. Our team can then safely get set up to begin vital extraction work.

We have several tools and machines that can help through the extraction process, both to reach inaccessible places and to quickly pull high volumes of floodwater from the affected areas. Our equipment ranges from handheld wet-vacs with extraction wands for more challenging extraction points to truck-mounted pumps that can quickly remove the water. The goal is to remove the excess as promptly as possible to get to essential drying efforts.

While there are numerous steps to recovering your basement after a flood, removing the pooling water and mitigating loss is an essential first step. Our SERVPRO of Nashua rapid response team is available 24/7 for all facets of flood recovery by calling (603) 889-2311.

Fire Damage Are Fire Damage Odors Lingering in Your Nashua Home? Don't let the smoke odor linger in your fire damaged home. Call SERVPRO of Nashua to remove the odor.

Indoor Air Quality Concerns for Your Fire-Damaged Nashua Home

Many disasters can impact indoor air quality in your Nashua home. While many homeowners might think of these concerns as particulates and contaminants in the air that can cause health effects or hazards, this is not exclusively the case. After situations like fires, there are smoke and soot particulates in the environment, but there are also harsh odors often left behind from wet smoke situations where fire smolders at a lower heat. These concerns can also make it difficult for families to live comfortably in a home, even with the rest of the property restored.

Addressing fire odor in your Nashua home is often one of the final steps for professional restoration and recovery, as many of the worst elements that worsen these conditions get removed and replaced through demolition and reconstruction. Our SERVPRO professionals can work quickly to identify what areas of your property cannot sustain restoration efforts and require removal and later replacement, and quickly remove these from the area along with other hazardous debris.

When the time has come for odor removal and deodorization, our SERVPRO team has multiple machines that can work to eliminate lingering scents from materials and open areas of your house. Hydroxyl generators, which have likely been in use since the demolition portion of our restoration work, also work to reduce noxious odors throughout your home actively. For more concentrated effects, we can utilize ozone generators and thermal foggers to eliminate these harsh smells permanently.

For the contents of your home that can also fall victim to the wet smoke scent and residue, our contents department can remove these items from the house and take them to our nearby facility for cleaning and deodorizing. They get safely stored in our facility until your home gets fully restored and prepared for their return.

Fire odors can be a challenging effect to overcome without the expertise and equipment of our professionals. You can count on the rapid response and advanced equipment of our SERVPRO of Nashua fire restoration specialists. Give us a call today at (603) 889-2311.

When Foul Odors Linger After A Fire In Your Nashua Office Building, Call The Professionals At SERVPRO!

Commercial When Foul Odors Linger After A Fire In Your Nashua Office Building, Call The Professionals At SERVPRO! SERVPRO of Nashua is thorough when cleaning your office building in Nashua or the surround areas after a fire has occurred.

Restoration Of Commercial Fire Odors In Your Nashua Office Building

A fire in your Nashua office building can be devastating, even if the fire was small. It can lead to the temporary shutdown of your business, besides costly repairs and restoration. Of course, preventing a fire from happening in the first place is the best thing, but if one does occur, you need to move fast to get help, so the settled smoke and soot do not do additional damage.

Commercial fire odors in your Nashua business are also an issue after a fire, which is even more reason to hire a professional remediation specialist, like SERVPRO. Our staff is trained and equipped to handle all damages from fire including the damage from the flames themselves, water damage, from firefighting efforts, and smoke odors, which can travel through areas that weren’t even affected by the fire.

One of the most critical parts of fire restoration is smoke odor elimination. It is essential that we act immediately, so get in touch with us as soon as the fire is out. Smoke can cling to upholstered furniture and carpeting if they are not adequately deodorized. SERVPRO techs’ deodorization procedures break up the smoke molecules to eliminate the lingering smell.

Smoke can also enter and remain in between the walls. Smoke odor can reoccur if we do not correctly remove it in these areas. Depending on the amount of smoke damage, the ceilings and walls might need to be cleaned and repainted.

Smoke and odor particles are also airborne after the fire, and we use multiple treatments during the restoration process with specialty equipment to clean the air. Air scrubbers which are equipped with HEPA filtration systems help to remove the odor particles from the air, which enhances the efficiency of cleaning the air to make it safe again for you and your employees. Microthermal fogging uses a strong deodorizer so we can neutralize odor which permeates the air that was affected by smoke.

SERVPRO of Nashua is thorough when cleaning your office building in Nashua or the surround areas after a fire has occurred. We understand the importance of getting your building wholly restored to its previous condition, so call us right away at (603) 889-2311 once the fire is out.

Nashua Attics and Basements Often Suffer Mold Infestations--Call SERVPRO for Remediation

Mold Remediation Nashua Attics and Basements Often Suffer Mold Infestations--Call SERVPRO for Remediation Need a Moldy Nashua Attic Remediation? Call the IICRC Certified Team from SERVPRO

Mold Remediation Needed Due to Poor Attic Insulation in Nashua

Mold is resilient and can grow anywhere it has access to two things: moisture and food. Moisture can come from the direct introduction of water to high humidity conditions created from poor ventilation and organic materials ranging from wood to dust can be used as food. Our mold remediation services are two-fold for both determining the cause as well as the thorough elimination of both spores and mold.
 
This attic in Nashua had multiple issues leading to a perfect environment for mold growth. While there was no leaking in the attic, it did have inadequate insulation and a poorly connected bathroom exhaust fan. The ineffective evacuation of air led to moist air entering the attic regularly whenever the homeowners used the shower. The expelled, humid air became trapped, resulting in a perfect home for dormant mold spores to activate.
 
In an area of the home where moisture build-up was already an issue, SERVPRO technicians chose to use soda blasting as a way to clean the mold from surfaces. This effective method uses sodium bicarbonate (also known as baking soda) which is mildly abrasive, delivered under pressure to both clean and deodorize during the same application. This method helps rid the tell-tale odor that comes with mold. Once the mold colonies were removed from the surfaces in the attic, we treated the wood and exposed areas with a specially formulated antifungal product to ensure the attic surfaces were not favorable for the return of mold.
 
Some items stored in the attic also had signs of mold colony invasion. We were able to hand clean those items with an antifungal cleaner to destroy the fungi on numerous possessions. Once the items were dry, the homeowner was advised to store items in airtight plastic containers to ensure the cleaned contents remained mold-free and weren't allowed to collect dust, setting up the problem again.
 
Mold remediation should begin as soon as you notice any signs of mold in your home. Our technicians are IICRC certified and available 24/7 to assist you. Contact SERVPRO of Nashua at (603) 889-2311 to get started immediately.

Nashua Wet Basement, Again?? Call SERVPRO for Mitigation and Solutions

Why SERVPRO Nashua Wet Basement, Again?? Call SERVPRO for Mitigation and Solutions SERVPRO Says Sump Pumps Help Protect Nashua Area Basements

Why You Can Count on SERVPRO to Cleanup Your Nashua Home's Wet Basement and Get it Dry Again

While the weather in Nashua overall keeps snow and ice from disappearing altogether, substantial amounts melt. When this happens near homes, the ground surrounding the foundation can quickly become saturated. Cracks that generally cause no problems in the lower portion of your basement can let in this otherwise trapped water.
 
We want to help homeowners in such situations, which is why SERVPRO is always ready to help get your wet Nashua basement cleaned up and adequately mitigated. Wet basements are notorious for problems with mold infestations, excessive humidity in all areas of a house, and damage to stored belongings.
 
Our arrival at your home signifies the end of these problems. We use extraction methods that remove the water currently present. Our team can install a sump pump and ensure the trough around the perimeter is clear of debris, so any newly deposited water enters the sump pump.
 
As both concrete floors and concrete blocks making up the walls can retain water, we need to manipulate the environment, so these materials dry out. We increase both the temperature and how fast the air circulates through the area. The air currents inside a basement do little to facilitate drying, so our efforts provide a crucial change.
 
Proper drying of a wet basement requires additional heat, but turning your home's thermostat up does not give us the environment we want. Not only does it whisk off humidity from the basement and force it into the rest of your home, but it also makes it uncomfortably hot in your living area. We bring heat-producing equipment to increase the temperature in enclosed areas without affecting the rest of the house.
 
Once the air in the basement becomes warmer, it can hold additional moisture. We pull the moisture out of the harder materials like brick, concrete, and cement with air movers that continually dry the exterior of these surfaces. Because moisture seeks drier conditions, not only does absorbed moisture continually move toward the exterior of materials, but our desiccant machines endlessly pull that same moisture out of the air.
 
We can help you maintain a dry basement, so your home's environment remains within the normal range for humidity. This helps protect your house and belongings until basement waterproofing specialists can make the necessary repairs to your foundation and basement walls and floors.
 
SERVPRO of Nashua has the equipment a wet basement emergency calls for, and we can help keep the area dry, so secondary damages of several kinds do not cause additional harm. Call us at (603) 889-2311 when you notice puddles of water on your basement or cellar floors.

Will Frozen Pipes Cause Water Damage in Your Nashua Home This Winter?

1/16/2019 (Permalink)

Storm Damage Will Frozen Pipes Cause Water Damage in Your Nashua Home This Winter? Winterize your home to prevent frozen pipes.

Nashua's Technicians Discuss Flood Damage and Frozen Pipe Problems

Every year, winters in Nashua can bring about severe, cold weather. When the temperature drops, flood damage and frozen pipes can cause you problems and force you to call in a professional restoration company such as SERVPRO. When water freezes, it expands and can cause your pipes to crack. Once there is a hole inside your plumbing system, gallons of water can pour into your living area quickly. Should you leave moisture for too long, you may be dealing with mold inside your Nashua home.

Once water starts to leak the issues can get much worse as time goes by. Mitigating problems with flood damage or a frozen pipe in Nashua is our SERVPRO team's specialty. When we first arrive at your house, we figure out exactly where your plumbing system failed. Once we find the crack in the pipe, we often shut off your water; then we call in a certified plumber to fix the crack where the pipes froze. After the original problem gets repaired and there is not any more moisture entering the home, we can begin the restoration process. Before we begin mitigating issues inside your building, we inspect the affected area and make sure there are no potential safety hazards for our workers or your family.

Once any issues like falling drywall or slick floors get mitigated, we then figure out which of your building materials and contents got wet. If items get saturated like your carpet or pad, we start with removing the ruined objects. After removing destroyed items, we extract water from porous materials such as carpets and fabrics. After we have removed all of the water we could while it is in its liquid form, we set up air movers and dehumidifiers to speed up the natural evaporation process. We keep the equipment set up until our moisture sensors indicate that levels are back to preloss conditions.

If a pipe inside your home ever freezes and breaks, call in the professionals at SERVPRO of Nashua at (603) 889-2311 any time of the day.
