Storm Damage What Happens When Flood Water Sits in Your Nashua Home SERVPRO of Nashua has the equipment to extract water and dry your home quickly.

Prompt Flood Water Removal in Nashua Homes Prevents Secondary Destruction

Floodwater may enter your home because of river flooding, storms, or a torrential downpour, and it can cause permanent damage if not removed right away. Flood damage to your residential property can leave an unsanitary and unhealthy mess in its wake. Dealing with this mess necessitates flood cleanup expertise.  

When in need of flood water removal in Nashua, SERVPRO franchise professionals can help you get your home back to the preloss condition speedily. We are a professional water damage remediation company and offer a full range of water extraction and drying services. We can remove water and moisture from your home and its contents effectively and safely.  

We assess a home to determine the extent of the destruction from flooding and dry the affected areas. We have the expertise to deal with black water, which usually contains pesticides, chemicals, industrial waste, and sewage. The sewage may contain parasites, bacteria, and viruses that could pose health problems.  

Floodwater can cause cracks on the foundation of your home. Soil can absorb water unevenly and cause the concrete slab on which your home rests to lift or crack. This shifting may lead to ruptures in embedded pipes, cracked exterior walls, and a sagging roof.  Foundation shifts can affect windows and doors. The frames become distorted, causing the glass in the windows to break. Windows and doors that do not open are a common sign of damage.  

Our SERVPRO technicians examine the entire flooded area, including carpet and carpet pad, floor and subfloors, insulation, walls and surfaces like brick and concrete. Our protocol is to remove and discard flooded carpet. For other areas, we can use truck mounted or portable pumps to extract as much water as possible since this helps expedite the drying process.  

Our crews can also use air movers and dehumidifiers to dry your home. We can also use thermal imaging cameras to inspect and monitor the moisture in building materials. We locate areas of dampness that may not be clear and remove the moisture to ensure that mold does not grow.  

If your home has suffered flooding, call SERVPRO of Nashua immediately at 603) 889-2311 for water extraction services. We restore homes to their preloss condition safely and efficiently. We’re Faster To Any Size Disaster.

SERVPRO Assists with Water Cleanup in Nashua Basement

Water damage brings several problems to a home. The longer the exposure of building structure and contents continues, the more damage that happens. Then there are the concerns of mold growth and foul odors.

SERVPRO responded to a call for water cleanup in a Nashua home. The homeowner stated he was not sure where the plumbing issue was, but he turned off the water before our arrival. When our technicians arrived, they determined the cause of the water was hydrostatic water seepage and was not due to a plumbing problem at all. The locally heavy rains caused groundwater to be pushed into the basement through the foundation, as water always follows the path of least resistance. When the pressure outside the basement was higher than the pressure inside, the water entered because this type of water loss is a category two, also known as gray water because it has the potential to contain contaminants. It can be considered a Cat 3 if known pesticides, chemicals, organic or fecal matter is present.

Fortunately, the only items stored on the basement floor were in plastic bins, so it was simple to clear out. We used submersible pumps to extract the water from the basement quickly and checked the outside of the home to ensure the gutters and drainage had no bearing on the water intrusion in the basement as water collecting around the surface of the house can sometimes be the cause. The homeowner had gutters that needed cleaning badly, and they were not able to direct the flow of rainwater away from the property.

After our SERVPRO technicians extracted the water, we set up air movers and dehumidifiers to dry the surfaces. Then we cleaned and disinfected the affected areas to inhibit mold growth. Once we completed our cleanup efforts, we gave the homeowner a list of the necessary actions to restore the basement to preloss condition and preventative measures to take to avoid this situation from occurring again.

SERVPRO of Nashua stands ready to assist homeowners with water cleanup of any type. Call us at (603) 889-2311, and we can be on-site soon after your initial call with the necessary equipment because We're Faster To Any Size Disaster.

How to Restore Fire Damaged Personal Contents in Nashua

Fire Damage How to Restore Fire Damaged Personal Contents in Nashua You can trust SERVPRO of Nashua to restore your fire damaged home.

Advanced Contents Restoration in Fire Damage Removal for your Nashua Home

The lasting impact of a fire in your property can seem catastrophic at the time. However, by enlisting the help of a professional restoration service, you can get your home back to its preloss conditions quicker than you might think.  We repaint walls and ceilings, clean surfaces, and restore possessions. Our service is available for minor, medium, and severe property damages.

An essential part of our service is fire damage removal in Nashua properties. When materials have burned at low temperatures for a significant period, personal possessions can suffer heavy soiling and require removal to an external facility for cleaning or storage. SERVPRO can subcontract professional movers on your behalf as well as creating a detailed inventory of your valuables.

One of the advantages of a removal procedure is that cleaning work for structure and structural components are efficient. By removing items, we can gain access to wall cavities as well as performing refinishing or repainting works. Also, third-party general contractors can only begin work on repairing your home's structure once the removal of contents is complete.

At our facility, we can treat items to specific cleaning methods for fire damaged contents. Immersion cleaning, for example, allows us to place dense items like chandeliers or drapery rods into a solvent solution. Ultrasonic soundwaves create high-temperature pressure to the surface of the material and are exceptionally useful at removing stubborn soiling or smoke residues.

Porous items that are not suited to ultrasonic cleaning may include fabrics, drapes, or clothing. SERVPRO can make use of mechanical cleaning methods like Esporta washing machines to restore fabrics. These machines are proven to remove up to 99% of soiling from damaged materials and have a good chance of getting valuable possessions back to their preloss condition without having to resort to an expensive replacement.

Pack out procedures are invaluable in restoring your contents. Contact SERVPRO of Nashua at (603) 889-2311 to see how we can help.

5/24/2019 (Permalink)

Water Damage Steps to Handling Water Damage in Your Nashua Residence After an Air Conditioner Leak If and when appliances malfunction and cause water damage, our SERVPRO team will be there to help.

Is Your A/C Causing A Major Leak in Your Home? Call SERVPRO! 

Your air conditioner can malfunction and soak several structures in your home, including the ceiling, baseboards. It can also ruin carpets and drywall if it in on the ground floor. When this occurs, you need to address repairs and take care of the resulting water damage. 

Some of the causes of AC leaks include a cracked drain pan, a dirty unit filter, faulty condensate pump, condensation buildup in duct-work and a damaged evaporator coil. If your air conditioner leaks and causes water damage in your Nashua residence, you need to turn off the unit, check for the cause of the issue, and perform the necessary AC repairs. After that, it is vital to hire the water damage restoration professionals at SERVPRO to assist you to handle the cleanup, drying, and restoration of your home. 

Our remediation experts can use equipment like wet vacs to extract water from carpets and hardwood flooring. We can also set up air movers to create cross-currents of air throughout the affected area. We can then use dehumidifiers to expedite the drying process and eliminate moisture. Dehumidification dries a home thoroughly to prevent further damage. 

Here at SERVPRO, we use a scientific approach to water cleanup and removal whose emphasis is on monitoring and documenting the entire drying process. Our technicians can use moisture meters to check for moisture in walls, ceilings, and flooring. If moisture is present, we create a comprehensive drying plan to eliminate it quickly and safely. 

After we complete the drying process, we can determine if additional structural repairs are necessary. If the damage is significant, we can patch and repaint ruined baseboards and drywall. We can deal with the structural damage caused by AC condensation leaks in ceilings, tear out and replace any ruined drywall, and replace badly soaked hardwood flooring and subflooring to restore your home to its pre-water loss condition. We can make your water loss incident appear “Like it never even happened.” We involve our customers throughout the restoration process and provide them with a certificate of completion after they are satisfied with the work.

If water from an AC leak has damaged your home, SERVPRO of Nashua can help you to remove the water and restore your home. Contact us 24/7 at (603) 889-2311 for prompt water damage restoration services.

Commercial Here Is What You Should Do If You Experience Commercial Water Damage in Your Nashua Business Your Nashua laundromat can experience water damage that accumulates quickly with no warning. Contact SERVPRO today for all remediation assistance.

Never Hesitate to Get Help When Your Nashua Laundromat Sustains Water Damage

A laundromat full of appliances is an unfortunate place to experience sudden water damage. A broken water-supply line can leak out many gallons of water quite swiftly, which can lead to you having to close your establishment until the problem is fixed, and the standing water is cleaned up. Fortunately, experience help is never far.

The best thing that you can do for the water damage in your Nashua laundromat is to call for professional remediation services immediately. Leaving the damage to its own devices for any longer than necessary can spell out trouble for your business. Not only can the water damage the structure of your building, but it can also endanger the other units on the property.

When water damage becomes a problem for you, SERVPRO is ready to help. We build our schedule around yours. No matter the time, or the day, we're always ready to send a team of our experienced water damage restoration technicians (WRT) to your home. Should you find your problem at either 3 AM or 3 PM, it does not matter. We are ready to get to your shop and begin remediation.

The first step SERVPRO can take when we arrive at your property is an investigation. It is essential to remove the standing water from your establishment as soon as possible, as the longer it stays, the more damage it can do to the laminate flooring and the drywall. We can use extractor wands and wet/dry vacuums to remove the still-water from your laundromat, as both are designed to remove the water as swiftly as possible. From there, SERVPRO can remove the units from your store so we can address the flooring.

If the laminate floor has been too damaged, our technicians can remove it so we can dry out the base of your flooring. Similarly, if the drywall has been significantly impacted, SERVPRO can make flood cuts to reduce the changes of microbial growth. Once finished, we can set up some basic drying equipment, such as heaters, dehumidifiers, and air blasting tubes, to encourage the final bits of outstanding moisture to evaporate.

If water damage hits your establishment, never allow it to sit. Dial (603) 889-2311 to speak with SERVPRO of Nashua. Night or day, we can respond to your call.

Helping Homeowners with Effective Odor Removal after a Fire in Nashua

When things burn, the combustion creates smoke that deposits soot on any exposed surface. You might not see all of these exposed surfaces, however. Your Nashua home can contain many hidden areas that make removal of all soot deposits impossible with standard equipment.

Because SERVPRO specialists are determined to help homeowners restore their homes "Like it never even happened," we consider it essential to perform Nashua odor removal services after any fire and smoke incidents. Our equipment comes in a variety of different types, ensuring that we always have what we need to protect your family and guests from foul odors.

When smoke fills a room, the solids in that smoke settle as they cool down. Because of the heat pushing the smoke into areas does not dissipate quickly, smoke can enter into small spaces behind walls, above ceiling panels, and inside furniture.

For areas that become sources for smokey odors like this, we use thermal fogging. Hot steam loaded with powerful chemicals that render odor-causing soot inert and unable to get back into the air helps resolve the problem quickly. When other areas of your home require attention, we use different methods.

Walls and ceilings can continue to give off odor, even after cleaning. Priming these surfaces and repainting can stop the odor from coming into the air your family breathes. Various surfaces also respond well with clear sealants. Concrete and brick can hold soot in tiny pores that become worse whenever heat or water vapor in the area increases. Ensuring these particles of soot cannot leave means your home stays fresh-smelling.

When highly porous materials become loaded with soot, like carpeting, we use the application of scented gels and liquids. While these may seem like only a covering of the odors, regular vacuuming steadily removes the particles that cause the odor. Reapplication also helps maintain continued control of odors.

Because we do not live in your home, we rely on your judgment of the effectiveness of our odor removal and control measures. SERVPRO of Nashua considers your involvement in the restoration of your home, including those involving odors, as an essential part of our work. Call us at (603) 889-2311, so we can partner with you when smoke and soot affect the indoor air quality of your residence.

How Water Loss Events Can Lead to Mold Damage in Nashua

4/18/2019 (Permalink)

Water Damage How Water Loss Events Can Lead to Mold Damage in Nashua Each vehicle in our Green Fleet is stocked with equipment to restore your water damaged home.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
