SERVPRO Cleans and Removes Materials from Nashua Homes during Mold Remediation

Noticing signs of mold calls for rapid action to stop further contamination and restore preloss conditions. Since each mold contamination case varies, you might not know what restoration procedures may be necessary. Typically, the level of infestation determines the actions required so that a response can range from simple cleaning of soils to demolition of materials.

The signs that indicate whether your Nashua home has mold damage begin as very slight changes on surfaces or even in the air. You might notice your home feels stuffier than usual, which then progresses to a musty smell that makes staying indoors for a long time uncomfortable. Other signs include dark patches, browning, and deterioration that leaves materials crumbly. SERVPRO can provide an appropriate response at any stage of contamination.

Mold remediation combines different aspects since it must address existing deterioration and limit chances of future growth. The most crucial factors include moisture management and inhibiting microbial growth processes since they are responsible for continued development or future breakouts. 

Typical Actions Against Mold Damage

  • Containment of some house sections
  • Teardown of structural materials
  • Application of chemical agents
  • Various drying procedures

Once mold starts, it spreads over vast areas affecting the structure and contents of organic materials. However, it rarely affects the entire home unless it is abandoned. SERVPRO technicians isolate contaminated areas from the unaffected sections when remediating the damage. Constructing airtight physical barriers helps keep mold debris from spreading. Such a barrier is made from plastic sheets held up by PVC pipes or spring-loaded metal rods, making it convenient to set up and disassemble. 

The Reason that Mold Damage Occures

Mold formation is a natural process that aids the natural decomposition of materials. When naturally-occurring spores settle on surfaces, they sprout root-like hyphae that penetrate organic materials and break them down as food. Therefore, when mold develops inside your home, the affected materials deteriorate and maybe unsalvageable if intervention is delayed. Demolition to remove porous and structurally unsound materials is a likely process for your home. Our SERVPRO IICRC certified technicians help perform controlled demolition, which removes the affected materials while minimizing damage in unaffected areas.

Controlled Demolition Tasks

  • Precision cuts
  • Targeting particular areas
  • Organizing debris

Demolition is usually done to open up walls, ceilings, and floors removing moldy materials from the surfaces or within the cavities. These three areas contain different materials, including the covering panels, tiles or boards, and the support structures such as frames and joists. Various utilities like air ducts, plumbing, and electric ducts also run through these areas. You must do demolition in a way that saves utilities to avoid unnecessary costs. Our SERVPRO technicians use precision cutting tools and accessories such as stud finders to ensure unnecessary destruction does not happen. 

Demolition produces various wastes ranging from large chunks of materials to fine dust. These wastes need a clear organization plan to minimize soiling and protect your households from unnecessary exposure to mold debris. Our crews use heavy-duty sealable plastic bags to collect the larger debris. We also establish negative air pressure before demolition to prevent the finer debris from spreading. 

SERVPRO of Nashua knows what to do in a property affected by mold damage and can help you devise an appropriate remediation plan. Call us at (603) 889-2311. We're Faster To Any Size Disaster.

Preventing Mold Growth in Your Nashua Home

9/7/2022 (Permalink)

Mold Up Close Humid Conditions Encourage the Growth of Mold in Nashua

SERVPRO Tip: Keep the Relative Humidity Low to Discourage Mold Damage

Preventing mold in a hot, humid climate is not costly or difficult; however, when you have a mold issue, the reality is it can become challenging and expensive to remedy. Suppose you do have a problem with fungi. The best thing to do is to contact a remediation service such as SERVPRO, which will have all the knowledge and tools to clean up your mold problem properly.

You can't reliably control mildew and mold growth and prevent mold damage in Nashua by just using an air conditioning system. To avoid this infestation problem, the relative humidity of the structure shouldn't go over 55%. In hot weather, an air conditioning system will work well. However, in your home, the highest relative humidity will probably happen in mild weather when you do not need the AC that much during the day. In cool, warm, but damp weather, the HVAC system isn't on much. The weather is most likely to promote the growth of mold.

Moisture must be removed from your home during the day when the temperature is hotter by using an air conditioner or dehumidifier at night. The best method by far is to use a dehumidifier. For the best results, purchase one with a humidistat control, permanent drain, and timer. If you still see or smell mold, call SERVPRO right away so that we can remove it and clean up your home.

Settings For Your Thermostat in Hot, Humid Weather

Every degree increase in your thermostat setting will lower your air conditioning cost by around ten percent. Put your thermostat to the highest temperature, which is comfortable for you. It is recommended to have a temperature of seventy-eight degrees Fahrenheit or more. Set the thermostat to the "cool" mode and not the "auto" mode. Put the fan mode of operation to the "auto" and not the "on" or continuous setting.

It would be helpful if you did not try to control mold by lowering your thermostat settings since this does not work. It would help if you never left outside windows or doors open in humid, hot weather while you are running the air conditioner. This not only promotes the growth of mold and allows the entry of more mold spores, but it will waste electricity as well and maybe damage your AC. Instead, ceiling fans can keep you comfortable while you save money at the same time.

Keep your air filters changed regularly and get professional service once every year to clean the coils. Ensure the sprinkler system doesn't hit the exterior walls of your home and angle bathroom dryer vents and exhaust fans outside of your house. You should also keep the amount of live indoor houseplants to a minimum and get rid of all leaks and standing water under or in your home. Moisture is the main culprit that enhances fungi proliferation.

Mold growth can cause the quality of the air in your home to become unhealthy for you and your family, so if you encounter any mold growth in your home, contact SERVPRO of Nashua immediately. We will take care of the mold problem as soon as possible. Call us at (603) 889-2311.

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 are 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 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 polluted 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 use 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 penetrate 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. Hence, it looks "Like it never even happened."

Can SERVPRO Help Me? I Fear There is a Mold Infestation in My Home.

1/12/2022 (Permalink)

Got mold? Mold remediation mitigation is no easy task. SERVPRO has the equipment and manpower for every job needed.

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 infests 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 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 commercial-grade mold inhibitor is safe for use around people, pets, plants, and even damp carpeting and other delicate items in your home that ozone can harm. We can apply this like we would apply paint for large, open areas with brushes or rollers. We apply antimicrobial sprays in tight spaces where access is more difficult. 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.

How Can Homeowners Avoid Frozen Pipes and Achieve Ice Damming Prevention in Nashua?

12/5/2021 (Permalink)

an outside view of a frozen pipe When frozen pipes burst and affect your family home, team SERVPRO can help. Contact our technicians for remediation and for help in your home.

Mastery of Water Migration Theory and Effective Avoidance of Cold Weather Pipe Bursts and Ice Dam Build Up are Why SERVPRO is a Reliable Resource for Nashua Residents

In late autumn, frozen pipes and ice damming prevention tops Nashua home maintenance chores. Plummeting temperatures plus sleet and snow can spell disaster for vulnerable residences. Fortunately, homeowners have a range of preemptive strategies that can avert the conditions that lead to cold weather water damage.  

What Can Nashua Property Owners Do to Prevent Frozen Water Lines?

The pipes in your plumbing system, freshwater supply, and waste, can freeze and crack when temperatures drop below freezing. Inadequate or absent insulation allows the moisture inside pipes to freeze and swell, exerting enough pressure to split the casing. This is why SERVPRO urges owners to know where cold and moisture enter a home, stopping the water damage and basement flooding in Nashua by:

  • Purchasing and wrapping affected lines with inexpensive pipe insulation
  • Closing exterior garage doors to trap warmth near pipes
  • Opening bathroom and kitchen cabinets to enhance warm airflow
  • Keep interior thermostats at warmer levels, even at night or when away (55 degrees is the bare minimum)
  • Allow water dripping from a faucet to keep water moving throughout the system

Why Does SERVPRO Focus on Gutter Cleaning and Roof Inspection?

When called to evaluate an attic leak, our IICRC-certified crews seek icicles as a sign that an ice dam is present. Just like the pressure of frozen water in a pipe, the moisture trapped by an ice dam swells, causing gaps at the roofing edge, resulting in ceiling leaks after it flows into an attic. Clogged gutters and downspouts you failed to clean during the fall allow water to pool during daytime thawing and freeze at night. Maintaining gutters and adjusting drainage avoids the creation of ice dams. Sealing joints between roofing materials and attic structures stop the thawing of gutter ice as warm air from your home stays inside.

Thorough training and on-the-job experience are why SERVPRO of Nashua is ready to help homeowners minimize frozen pipes and ice dams damage. Call (603) 889-2311 for winterization insulation and repair suggestions and assistance if water damage does occur.

Notice a Strong Musty Odor in Your Nashua Home – Call SERVPRO

11/19/2021 (Permalink)

Got mold? Mold remediation is no DIY project. SERVPRO techs use the latest technology and equipment for every mold remediation service.

SERVPRO Provides Mold Remediation. Inspection and Removal in Nashua

Mold spores are present everywhere indoors in our homes and outdoors in Nashua. Under the right conditions, mold spores can germinate into mold colonies and release a strong, musty odor. High humidity, small plumbing leaks, condensation, and a warm environment usually provide the best conditions for mold growth. Many residents and business owners may not even realize they have a mold problem until they encounter a mold colony in a little-used room and notice the musty odor.

SERVPRO provides mold remediation services in Nashua. We can assist in identifying the source of the moisture and recommend solutions to reduce the humidity levels. We also complete thorough mold inspections and recommend a plan to remove the mold along with any items that may be too damaged to be cleaned. Long-term mold infestations can also damage structural components of your building forcing removal and reconstruction.

Non-porous materials such as glassware covered in mold can be cleaned, disinfected, dried, and removed to a staging area until the mold colony has been removed. Porous materials cannot always be cleaned. They may be too damaged, or the cleaning process may not allow them to be returned to their original condition. Often mold on drywall is an indication that the moisture has penetrated the drywall, causing swelling and disintegration with mold colonies inside the wall cavity. We carefully place these materials in bags onsite and remove them. In some situations, negative pressure rooms are established to prevent mold spores from being distributed to the remainder of the building while cleaning and removal are underway.

SERVPRO provides the following Mold remediation services.

  • Mold inspections and removal
  • Bathroom mold removal
  • Establish clean rooms, decontamination rooms, and staging rooms

Call SERVPRO of Nashua for mold remediation in Nashua and surrounding areas. We can help 24/7. Call (603) 889-2311.

Things about Mold Damage that Nashua Homeowners Need to Know

8/14/2021 (Permalink)

mold damage Mold remediation for your home is no DIY project. SERVPRO techs are trained and experienced in every phase needed for your property.

Why SERVPRO? We are Certified to Remediate Your Mold Damage

A house serves several different purposes, and many homeowners want to do the right things to protect their homes. Damage can always happen to any home, and it can come from many different sources. Some are less costly or affect only the house itself, without posing any risks to those living in the home. Other types of damage can be more expensive to repair, and others can pose possible health effects. 

In Nashua, mold damage is one of the worst types of damage that a home can have. Mold can create a malodorous environment, contaminate food, destroy clothing, and do many other things inside your home. It can also discolor walls and eat at semi-porous building materials in your home. 

Cleaning mold yourself is not recommended. Surfaces in your home should never be cleaned with bleach. Bleach is mainly composed of water, and mold needs water to live. Cleaning with bleach is ineffective in combating it, and by doing so, you could provide the mold with the water it needs to survive. Changing the color of the mold with bleach does not do anything towards removing it. 

Mold Inspections, Remediations, and Removal

We can assess your home for mold by using sensors that detect even the slightest rise in humidity and moisture. SERVPRO technicians are trained in using these devices and can tell within a very short time where water has been coming from, and this can often help determine the location of mold colonies. You don't have to live with mold that has grown out of control, and you don't have to clean it yourself, either. We can stop any further damage from affecting your home and restore or repair the damage when we begin work. 

Call your local mold remediators, SERVPRO of Nashua, at (603) 889-2311 whenever you believe you might have a problem with mold damage in your home. We listen to your concerns and answer your questions, then provide you with the service you deserve while we return your home to a healthy and clean state again.

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:

    •    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.

SERVPRO’s Thorough Technician Training Program, Along With Its High-Tech Gear, Makes It One of the Best Nashua Flood Damage Remediation Services.

Situated near the stormy northeastern coast, Nashua experiences the yearly effects of powerful coastal storms.  As these weather systems pass through, torrential rains often swell and overflow the nearby rivers and ponds.  These excess waters, in a relatively short period of time, can inundate area homes and cause thousands of dollars in damages.  Fortunately, when this happens, help is available.  Your neighborhood SERVPRO, has a staff of highly trained professionals that are dedicated to serving you and ensuring your satisfaction.  Moreover, they are equipped with all the latest advanced tools to quickly resolve even the most difficult issues.  Many times, our experts can even make your home seem like it never even experienced flooding.

What Makes Your Company So Knowledgeable About Flood Damage Remediation?
Our Nashua flood damage remediation service has successfully cleaned up local flood damage for twenty-two years.  Company professionals have several years of industry experience, and their knowledge base includes everything related to actual flood damage cleanup to complex issues involving insurance.  This is because, in addition to working for SERVPRO, some of our staff members have previously been involved in the insurance business.  Additionally, technicians know and adhere to the standards set by numerous reputable authorities such as the:

    •    Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC)
    •    American Bio Recovery Association (ABRA)
    •    Indoor Air Quality Association (IAQA)
    •    Institute of Environmental Education (IEE)

Armed with both our own knowledge and that developed by these various specialized organizations, we are better able to effectively deal with your flood damage.

In What Specific Remediation Topics Have SERVPRO Technicians Received Training and Been Certified?
SERVPRO technicians are individually certified by the IICRC in numerous flood damage cleaning and restoration topics.  These topics include everything from structural and contents drying, to specialized cleaning, disinfecting, and odor neutralization.  Some of the specific certifications our experts earn are in:

    •    Water damage restoration
    •    Applied structural drying
    •    Applied microbial remediation
    •    Odor control

The above certifications are indicative of company technicians’ advanced training and knowledge in all aspects of the remediation process.  This knowledge is important because it helps us resolve flood-related issues quickly the first time.

Does SERVPRO Have a Good Track Record When It Comes to Customer Service?
One of the many things that set SERVPRO apart from its competitors is its commitment to customer service.  As neighbors, our staff is always concerned about your satisfaction and wants to meet or even exceeding all of your expectations.  Also, our in-house Employee Certification Training Program (ECTP) emphasizes the importance of this, instructing workers to always listen carefully to, answer the questions of, and courteously serve all customers.  It is likely this intense dedication to serving customers that have earned us a 4.7-star customer satisfaction rating on Google Reviews and a 4-star rating on Facebook.

What Advanced Tools Do Your Technicians Use?
Some of our success is made possible by the top-notch remediation tools we use.  This equipment enables our experts to rapidly remove large volumes of floodwater from your home, expertly dry its structural components and contents, professionally remove hazardous waste and disinfect impacted surfaces, and effectively deodorize your residence.  A few of the notable tools we use are:

    •    Powerful commercial-grade truck-mounted and portable extractors
    •    Submersible gas pumps
    •    High-velocity box fans
    •    Advanced air blowers

    •    A vast array of EPA-approved disinfectants and deodorizers

This extensive arsenal of state-of-the-art gear helps us deliver the best results to our customers, often in less time and for less money than our competitors can.

How Do You Eliminate the Harmful Microbes Associated With Flooding From My Home?
We employ various methods to sanitize your home and make it safe to live in after a flood.  First, after the floodwaters have been removed, we spray strong disinfectants on structural elements and affected surfaces around your house.  Next, our workers remove hazardous waste and impacted materials from your residence.  Then, in order to make your home less hospitable to microorganisms, they use powerful dehumidifiers to dry out and lower the overall humidity of its interiors.  Afterward, using aerosolizing foggers, technicians further treat your home with antimicrobial compounds.  Once completed, all of these efforts ensure that your home is free of hazardous microorganisms that could cause negative health effects.

Considering everything, it is important to be mindful of the ever-present threat of flooding in the coastal Northeast.  Remember to prepare your home accordingly and always know your restoration options in the event of a potential flood.  With that said, if you ever experience flooding, you can always call your neighborhood SERVPRO of Nashua at (603) 889-2311 for assistance.

Recovering From Fire Damage In Nashua

12/29/2019 (Permalink)

fire damaged home “Like it never even happened.”

Recovering Fragile and Porous Materials from your Nashua Home after Fire Damage

One of the challenges you are going to face when performing fire restoration is the considerable amount of different materials and surfaces you may encounter. Your home is full of fabrics, stones, woodwork, and plastics. Each of these categories divides further into even more considerations. Silk, for example, cannot respond well to the same restoration procedure as a robust polyester or cotton. Smoke does not delineate between different materials but can bond with some and not others.

Pre-testing and due diligence when applying cleaning methods to fire damage in your Nashua home are both essential. While agitation may be an easy option to dislodge and remove soils, it can spread costs further or cause harm to the materials you are attempting to recover. Take care to read the instructions of both the article you are trying to clean as well as the cleaning solution itself. Oil-based cleaners work with oil-based stains. Water-based cleaners, on the other hand, work with water-based soiling.

At SERVPRO, our technicians undergo years of training and qualifications to assess your home after a fire confidently. While we have extensive access to mechanical cleaning equipment, there are many parts of your home that may not suit abrasive cleaning. Carpeting and expensive fabrics, for example, may lose much of their texture and fibers during aggressive vacuuming or rotary cleaning. These fibers may also clog up your vacuum cleaner or extractor, causing problems.

Our routine for sensitive materials and fabrics is to use absorption. Absorption incorporates the dispersal of power directly onto the surface of the material. SERVPRO can adapt truck-mounted extractors to disperse powders quicker over a large surface area. These powders absorb odor particles as well as smoke. SERVPRO technicians find they are effective at recovering porous materials like marble, brick, and concrete, as well as fabrics, upholstery, and drapery. Once soiling is absorbed, we can use light vacuums to remove them from the affected material.

Fragile materials that are a part of your home environment could suffer permanent harm without the correct cleaning method. Contact SERVPRO of Nashua at (603) 889-2311.

Eliminating Washing Machine Water Damage in Nashua

12/28/2019 (Permalink)

A washing machine with soap suds flowing out of the machine. Nashua let us help you through your washing machine water damage. So you can get back to your normal life.

The way we help Nashua water damage due to a washing machine.

Washing machine failures can be frustrating for a variety of reasons. Supply line failures are common, with the typical supply line giving out after 8.7 years of use. After the deductible, these incidences can cost $5,308 on average-- a costly endeavor for homeowners to deal with after a disaster occurs. On top of that, without quality extraction and mitigation, mold and other bacteria can proliferate in floors and other nearby surfaces, leaving residents with more to worry about than leaks or wet spots on their walls or floors. 

If a washing machine supply line failure causes water damage to your Nashua home, certified SERVPRO technicians are ready to mitigate the issue and ensure that your home is restored to a preloss condition. Not only do technicians have access to comprehensive education in water damage cleanup, but they also have extensive experience in the field. This team is dedicated to serving the community with quality disaster cleanup that works per the needs of property owners and insurance adjusters. 

The Right Tools for the Job

SERVPRO technicians and franchise owners rely on tools and methods that comply with standards set by the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification. The IICRC sets specific practical standards based on the field of psychometry to set a high bar for cleanliness. 

SERVPRO technicians can use a variety of moisture measurement tools, including infrared cameras, thermohygrometers, and moisture sensors and meters, to ensure that temperature and relative humidity requirements are met. Throughout the cleaning and drying process, technicians monitor the moisture levels of materials as well as the surrounding air to set drying goals.

How SERVPRO Can Restore Your Home

If your laundry room has vinyl tile flooring, great care must be taken to restore it. With extensive exposure to water, vinyl tiles come up easily from concrete, but this also makes replacement very easy and inexpensive. Replacing vinyl tiles is often more cost-effective than drying and reinstalling them. 

Tile installed over wood underlayment can lead to water damage that warps or otherwise affects the structural integrity of the subfloor. Technicians can use non-penetrating moisture meters to determine the state of the subfloor and whether it needs drying after a washing machine appliance failure. Technicians can also test whether vinyl tiles are glues containing asbestos. If so, they can bring in a certified asbestos abatement contractor to remove any remaining asbestos from the property.

SERVPRO of Nashua serves the community by being Faster to Any Size Disaster. Call (603) 889-2311 when disaster strikes in your home.

Did Water Damage in Nashua Leave Foul Odors in Your Home?

Using Hydroxyl Generators to Deal with Odor Causing Water Damage in Nashua

Any water that enters your home brings with it microbes and, therefore, the chance of microbial infestation. Over time, a clean water emergency can interact with pre-existing soiling in the home and degrade. This degradation can impact a homeowner in several ways, including unpleasant odor as well as structural rot and fungi growth. Generally, water incidents allowed to fester can see water contamination levels deteriorate into a grey or black emergency after seventy-two hours.

Our qualified technicians are here to bring water damage in your Nashua home back under control. We work quickly to detect the source of moisture, shut it off then begin work to reverse any damage. SERVPRO technicians are particularly adept at controlling the indoor environment within your property to decrease drying times and encourage evaporation. We can also work hard to restore any contents that may suffer harm using advanced chemical cleaners and odor-controlling equipment.

Mitigating water loss revolves around stopping deterioration at the point of arrival. That can include repairing or shutting down the source of water into the home. SERVPRO can remove large volumes of moisture quickly using pumps and truck-mounted extraction units. Our truck-mounted extractors can also be loaded with anti-microbial or carpet pre-cleaning conditioners to add a layer of efficiency to loss mitigation. Once large amounts of water are gone, the goal is to dry the property thoroughly, which can control odors and microbial growth.

There are many different methods of odor control available to a SERVPRO technician. We aim to inconvenience the homeowner as little as possible, which can rule out Ozone generators and ULV fogging equipment. By strategically placing a hydroxyl generator, we can restore your indoor air quality with minimum invasiveness and inconvenience. Hydroxyl generators use UV radiation similar to sunlight to break down particles quickly. These generators are especially effective at breaking down odor particles or chemicals that may affect indoor air quality.

Bring your home emergency back under control. Contact SERVPRO of Nashua at (603) 889-2311.

When Battling Wet and Damp Basement in the Nashua Area, Try Calling SERVPRO for Help

Can You Reduce Water Penetration into Nashua Basements?

Choosing the right restoration professionals for a wet basement in your Nashua home can often come down to which technicians provide lasting solutions. In addition to this critical reformation of your property to reduce recurrences in the future, you also must find a team of professionals that can address the acute effects that have become immediate threats. Reducing the penetration of water into your basement is an excellent first step, and our certified team of restorers can help.

While there can be many restoration teams to choose from, our SERVPRO professionals can do more to dry and repair the wet basement in your Nashua home. Because there are so many avenues that moisture and water can follow to get inside your home, combating these effects can often feel like a never-ending task. With the right tools and equipment, our technicians can learn more about the penetration of this water and devise the best strategy to prevent further intrusions.
Moisture detection devices and discovery tools are an essential element to a thorough and accurate inspection of the affected areas. Our professionals choose from a deep inventory of these advanced tools, including hygrometers, thermal or infrared imagery, and moisture sensors for areas like the carpets, baseboards, and walls. We can isolate areas of cinderblock that may be damp and harbor liquid in their hollow cells. This knowledge can also help to determine where the most significant moisture concentrations exist, so the points of penetration can get more easily discovered.
Reducing water penetration involves discovering these precise points and working to seal them up with permanent fixes. Compromised masonry can often become a vulnerability for your basement, and the solution for these breaches involves sealing the points with a compound like hydraulic cement. If you know where water enters your basement, you can attempt this initial repair on your own. There are many quality products available in home improvement locations in the area. In many cases, the efforts of the homeowner might still be insufficient.
A dry basement, free of lingering dampness provides a healthier indoor air quality. The contents stored in a typical basement also are safer from rotting and developing mold colonies. We can provide sump pumps, and exterior sloped grading for rain run-off, and more.

We can continue to search for other avenues of moisture penetration and work to seal these up through products or controlled demolition and reconstruction. No matter how regularly you combat a wet basement, our SERVPRO of Nashua team can help. Give us a call today at (603) 889-2311.

Our Skilled Specialists Can Handle Any Size Disaster That Plagues Your Nashua Property

Why Nashua Residents Can Expect On-time, On-budget Restoration Services All Year Round

Owning a company that provides restoration services for the second-largest city in New England has its challenges. Which is why our crew of trained technicians meet every week to discuss the role we play in securing commercial or residential properties in Nashua and returning them to their preloss condition. Our meticulous attention to small details is what allows us to take on mold, fire, storm, or water damage incidents and complete both in time and under budget. SERVPRO stress-free claims process lets you focus on your everyday life while we manage your insurance process and paperwork for an efficient restoration service from start to finish.

The remediation of mold damage in your Nashua home is a painstaking process that involves the careful balancing of containing, cleaning and preventing microbial growth from becoming a permanent problem. SERVPRO restoration services use local Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) qualified technicians who can control mold growth while the removal process is underway.

We achieve this first by preventing the spread of mold which, in ideal conditions, can grow significantly in as little as 48 hours. By bringing the relative humidity of the affected area to below 60% using desiccant dehumidifiers, we can slow the progress of mold in your Nashua home. Containment barriers may be set up to block mold spores from spreading into unaffected areas of the home while decontamination zones can be established for the storage of salvageable contents and personal protective equipment (PPE.)

Robust structural components can benefit from powerful pressure washing or sandblasting to remove the mold-infested surface layers in your Nashua property. SERVPRO restoration services encompass the removal and replacement of non-salvageable materials like drywall or insulation. After thoroughly deodorizing the affected area, and disinfecting it, we can stop the source of mold by drying interior cavities or damp spots to prevent recurring issues. A SERVPRO technician can then share an inventory of works with your insurance adjuster to ease your claim.

Materials combusting at high temperatures release several toxins including carbon monoxide, in the form of wet smoke. Wet smoke deposits are characterized by their greasy, oil-based texture which releases a stubborn malodor. For homeowners with fire damage in Nashua, the offending odor creates an unpleasant reminder of the incident and can be extremely tough to remove using household air fresheners.

SERVPRO uses two methods to remove malodors from home with significant wet smoke residues. The first is to clean the source of odor using oil-based solvents that dissolve soot. This method is effective at removing odor, usually requiring an open system air circulation to exchange odor particles with natural outdoor air. However, in some cases, the placement of box fans does not completely clear malodor presenting a challenge for SERVPRO restorers.

Malodors come from a variety of sources and, where smoke residues are widespread, it can be inefficient to track down every cause. To combat this, SERVPRO odor control technicians (OCT) use several deodorizing methods to get your indoor air back to its pre-incident condition. In cavities like draws, furnishings, and ventilation shafts, we can place powerful odor masking pellets to control odor until it dissipates naturally. In other circumstances, fumigating the affected area, or the whole property, using ultra-low volume (ULV) foggers can find malodors and neutralize them through a chemical bonding process.

Our large loss recovery crew is here to help guide you through the process of getting your home back to its pre-incident condition after a violent storm or weather event. In the years that we have served this community, our proudest moments have been restoring storm damage for Nashua's private residents and commercial centers. Our skilled experts are with you every step of the way from the first phone call to the completion of the job that makes it seem, “Like it never even happened.”

The damages that violent storms cause a property comes in many different shapes and sizes. Sealant in your roof may have worn away, allowing rainwater to pour into your loft space, windows or doors may be blown through, or internal plumbing can collapse under the increased pressure of flash flooding or drainage. SERVPRO offers restoration services for all of these circumstances via our twenty-four-hour call-line and can arrange for an out-of-hours technician to visit your property to mitigate loss.

After an adverse weather event, your home is at its most vulnerable. SERVPRO technicians can plug the gaps by performing emergency board-ups or fixing temporary tarps over voids in the structure. Stopping water from getting in is the most crucial task in controlling the scale of damages. After we have established a safe zone, we can begin pumping out water and rapid drying the property to prevent further losses as well as arranging for third-party contractors to maintain or restore the structural integrity of your home.

A burst pipe can cause an immediate water damage issue for Nashua residents. Overnight these incidents can release as much as 400 liters of water an hour into your lounge, kitchen, bathroom, and garage. As standing water levels rise, the increased weight and pressure causes water to migrate into wall cavities or into your subfloor where, if not restored effectively, it can return in a mold or microbial growth issue days or weeks later.

SERVPRO restoration services use IICRC trained water restoration technicians who can arrange a visit to your property and mobilize the equipment needed to mitigate loss quickly. Using submersible pumps, technicians can remove the vast body of water efficiently before tackling waterlogged furniture and flooring. Structural components like carpet pads can break apart after coming into contact with water. SERVPRO can identify, remove, and replace non-salvageable items from your Nashua home once water levels have returned to normal.

Even hard concrete subfloors can absorb moisture under the right conditions. Temperature changes cause the absorbed moisture to expand and contract periodically, resulting in gaps in flooring where mold or other microbes can begin to grow. SERVPRO restoration services encompass the proper drying of your subfloor using desiccant dehumidifiers to lower indoor air moisture content to below 40 grains per pound (GPP.) This dehumidification process allows us to draw moisture from hard floors and restore them to a pre-incident condition.

SERVPRO of Nashua has industry-leading experience in providing restoration services to this part of New England. Contact us today for expert assistance in mold, water, fire or storm-related damages at (603) 889-2311.

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.

SERVPRO Says to Nashua Property Owners--Be Prepared to Prevent Frozen Plumbing Water Damage

SERVPRO Says Keep Your Nashua Home's Plumbing from Freezing with Planning and Preparation

Frozen Pipes Can Cause Water Damage in Nashua Homes

The temperatures are rapidly falling around your Nashua home this time of year, and with that, the door gets opened for potential problems with your plumbing. Freezing temperatures can adversely impact plumbing constructed of all types of material from PVC to copper. Swelling of an exposed portion of the line can result in separations, burst pipes, or failing joints from the excessive stress. The result, as you might imagine, is often severe water loss throughout the affected area where the plumbing became damaged.

While no Nashua homeowner wants to face water damage from frozen pipes, the extreme cold weather throughout the season makes this type of repair inevitable for our highly-trained professionals. Our SERVPRO team has the tools and expertise to make a difference quickly regarding extraction and drying efforts, and this fast response we provide can help to preserve structural elements such as flooring and drywall from becoming irreparably damaged by the pooling water.

SERVPRO advises property owners, both residential and commercial, to be proactive concerning the threat of burst pipes from frozen water. Warmth, whether generated through heating devices or insulation of exposed plumbing using tape or foam, can prevent a lot of grief and a ton of money.

Assessment plays a critical role in the mitigation of a water loss incident in your home. Our IICRC-certified professionals dispatched to your address know to make accurate inspections of the damaged areas to determine the full extent of the effects and the processes necessary to return your home to original condition.

As a certified contractor as well, we can offer our customers a comprehensive approach to restoring their home that does not involve the stress and legwork of securing a reputable contractor in the residential sector. Our SERVPRO team can identify the source of the leak as the burst pipes drip or spew water, remove only the materials that allow access to this source and those that became too greatly damaged to save, and build back the damaged elements to restore your home entirely.

With our comprehensive approach to water restoration, we offer our customers critical time-saving progress that limits the cost of focused restoration work to follow our mitigation process. You can count on our SERVPRO of Nashua specialists to help you overcome all of the effects from a burst pipe to return to your home quickly. Give us a call anytime at  (603) 889-2311.

SERVPRO Cleans Ductwork for Improved Indoor Air Quality in Nashua Homes

SERVPRO Use Industry Leading Equipment for Duct Cleaning in Nashua Homes and Businesses

Hey, Nashua Homeowner--Call SERVPRO to Clean and Sanitize Your Property's Ducts

As we all know, SERVPRO offers many mitigation services to help restore property after a fire or water damaging event. These are the cornerstones of our services. However, we also specialize in cleaning, and some examples include general cleaning, carpet and upholstery cleaning, air duct cleaning, and much more. Many homeowners do not understand the adverse effects of not maintaining clean and sanitary air ducts.

It is noteworthy to understand why cleaning and maintaining the duct work in your Nashua home is critical. Evidence suggests that in one year, the average family household accumulates around 40 pounds of dust, not even counting animal hair, and residue blowing from the outside. Our air duct cleaning service is professionally done, and we leave our customers satisfied always.

Everyone wants to believe their residence is producing clean air. However, that is not always the case. Air ducts collect large amounts of dust, animal dander, mold spores, allergens, dirt, and other particles that start to pile up from floating around in your residence. When the AC or heat is turned on, those accumulations of dust and filth can travel through the conduits and cycle throughout the interior. This dirty air may cause harm in many ways and has been evidenced to weaken the immune system due to the impurities in the air. SERVPRO has fully certified and licensed technicians to undertake this cleaning process and advanced equipment to accomplish this task.

This service includes a detailed inspection of the vents, filters, and checking for poor seals resulting in leaks. Our heavy-duty vacuum equipment working in conjunction with whip brushes and scrapers can dislodge and remove most of the built-up residue. The vent grates and registers are all cleaned with a mild detergent to help prevent debris from sticking to the surfaces.

Our SERVPRO technicians focus on improving IAQ indoor air quality once the physical removal of unwanted dust and debris has been completed. We can fog the ductwork with an antimicrobial agent that can exterminate mold spores and many species of bacteria and viruses. This improved ambient air is further enhanced with a light deodorizer to create a pleasant atmosphere within the home. This wholesome air affords you and your family a healthier environment to go about your daily routines.

Our recommendation is to contact us for a free inspection to determine if your circulation system requires cleaning. An annual inspection can prevent damage to the HVAC or furnace system while keeping your home cleaner and your family safer. Rely on SERVPRO of Nashua for a fair assessment, and we always leave our customers satisfied and feeling "Like it never even happened." (603) 889-2311
