After A Fire, SERVPRO Helps Your Family With Cleanup Services In Merrimack

When thick smoke darkens your home in Merrimack during a fire and firefighters douse everything with their hoses, your home becomes an unsafe mess. Smaller fires do much the same thing but in a more concentrated area.

SERVPRO can help you make your home livable again after a fire in Merrimack with their cleanup and restoration services. Our certified employees work in teams in restoring your home. Cleaning of soot-covered elements of your home and your family’s belongings, removal of materials destroyed in the fire, and repainting areas along with the installation of new materials make your home safe again, “Like it never even happened.”

We clean everything according to its composition. Getting the layer of soot off these items means that they no longer risk becoming marred and dull. Some items need a vacuum to remove dry soot, while others need wipe-downs with damp cloths or smaller tools. Some items require more intricate cleaning which we can perform with an ultrasonic bath.

We go through your home and place burned items in bags for disposal. This protects your home, the rest of your belongings, and anyone who comes into contact with the area. When structural components become affected like this, sharps points like nails, screws, other fasteners and even glass can create additional hazards.

Some items may seem too damaged to restore, but if the sentimental value is high, let us know. You know your belongings best, and we want you to experience as little stress as possible while we work on your home’s contents.

After we have removed the water used by firefighters and cleaned up your home, we can begin making the necessary restoration work. We measure the location that new materials must occupy and cut them accordingly. This reduces waste and excess expense. We prime areas slated for repainting, to seal in odor-causing soot and keep it from affecting your home. Flooring cleanup happens first, but new replacements occur last. Making things safe for cleanup work to commence and then waiting until all the work finishes prevent floors from experiencing any of the wear and tear that might make them look less new before your family can enjoy their appearance.

SERVPRO of Merrimack wants to help ensure your family’s home receives skilled and complete cleanup and restoration after a fire. During such a stressful time, we understand your family needs expert assistance from people who care about making this tragedy a thing of the past. Call our crew at (603) 262-9293, so we can help speed up recovery.

Commercial Can Water Damaged Documents be Restored in Merrimack? Water damage can ruin important documents. SERVPRO has a freeze drying mobile unit to help mitigate the damage to your important records.

Drying Records and Storage Contents in Your Merrimack Office

With so many offices fitting into smaller plaza properties throughout Merrimack, many owners have had to get creative with storage and hard copies of documentation. With groundwater and moisture being such a common issue with homes and commercial properties throughout the Northeast, storage of these documents and contents in basement areas can often lead to unexpected damages. Recovering from these effects requires a team of professionals adequately trained in the restoration of water-damaged documents and contents, which requires both specialized equipment and the experience of our trained IICRC-Certified restoration technicians.

Many business owners do not realize the ramifications or consequences of a wet basement until the water damage has spread throughout the entire Merrimack office space. Without the experience to successfully and entirely protect and dry damaged documents and paperwork, owners often do more harm than good to these affected contents. Our SERVPRO team has on-site and off-site solutions for recovering damaged records affected by a wet basement.

When our SERVPRO professionals first arrive at your plaza office building, we work quickly to identify the source of the moisture in the area. We must dry out the water damaged areas of your building and set up the appropriate approach to prevent the same situation from occurring again in the immediate future through sealing off vulnerabilities for moisture to penetrate the basement or identifying water leaks or breaks in plumbing moving through this portion of the building.

Freeze drying is an effective approach to completely removing moisture from affected records and documents without allowing them to become too badly damaged as they would with conventional cleaning approaches. With many of these documents getting written with pen ink, moisture can cause these words to bleed on the pages if the situation does not get addressed quickly. Best of all, we have the means of freeze drying with a mobile unit, ensuring that your documents do not have to leave the vicinity to get restored.

Quick drying damaged documents can be an effective means of protecting your records and documents damaged in basement storage when moisture and dampness get out of control. You can count on our SERVPRO of Merrimack professionals to make these damaging effects “Like it never even happened.” Give us a call anytime at (603) 262-9293.

Drying Water Damage In Your Amherst Basement

Many Amherst residents combat moisture-ridden basements throughout the year. Some homeowners struggle to keep water penetration through their foundation in check, while others battle with moisture leeching in from the concrete flooring from saturated soil underneath the house. However the problem arises, caring for this situation quickly is essential to prevent damaging situations like mold growth from occurring, which can have devastating effects on the occupants of your home and structural elements like framing, supports, flooring, and drywall.

While many consider drying to be the primary focus for recovering your flood damaged Amherst basement, this is unfortunately only part of the restoration process. Our SERVPRO technicians can work quickly to begin drying out elements like the concrete and blockwork that have allowed moisture penetration but must also determine the source of the damage and find lasting solutions to prevent further exposure once our drying efforts complete.

With penetration through degrading and eroding foundation blockwork, our experienced professionals can apply compounds like hydraulic cement to seal up penetration points. This high-strength solution can resist highly pressurized water penetration to prevent it from getting into the basement at that specific point. Wicking concrete can be more challenging to resolve, and often requires the installation of diversion equipment like sump pumps to direct water away from the basement.

Often many times with basements that are partially or fully underground, preventing water penetration entirely is an endless task. Instead, to keep moisture levels below acceptable parameters for preventing mold growth and other concerns, the installation of a permanent fixture like a dehumidifier might also be advisable. These provide lasting solutions to remove the moisture from the basement consistently enough to prevent degradation of essential structural elements and help to prevent mold colonization in this area.

A wet basement might seem like a common staple to area homes but should get addressed as the serious problem that it can become for homeowners. Give our SERVPRO of Merrimack water restoration specialists a call today for our assistance to dry out your basement and provide solutions to protect your home moving forward. Give us a call today at (603) 262-9293.

Commercial Flood Damage For Your Merrimack Business

When flooding occurs in Merrimack, many times the focus is on the residents who are displaced, and the damage done to their properties. However, many commercial buildings also suffer. Besides property damage and the possibly displaced employees, flooding in your jewelry store can create a loss of revenue and profits, damage to your inventory, a decrease in production and more.

Since you can’t stop the storms from coming, you should learn what to do to help safeguard your commercial structure in Merrimack from flooding and related losses. When the waters do come rushing in, and your building suffers flood damage, you need to enlist the help of a professional remediation company, such as SERVPRO. Our staff has the tools and training needed to help get your business back to looking the way it was before the flooding.

To protect your business, the first thing to do is to make sure you are covered. Commercial property insurance typically isn’t enough protection against flooding. Look over your policy and think about adding flood insurance.

When we arrive, the SERVPRO staff assesses the damages. In many flooding cases, we can remove merchandise and furniture as needed, such as jewelry and display cases in this case, to an off-site location while we restore the rest of the building. Truck-mounted pumps help us remove as much standing water as we can, then we can proceed with drying and restoring the rest of the building.

If your building is in a flood plain or low-lying area, you could be at a higher risk for flooding than those atop a hill. However, any location can possess vulnerabilities, and you should address any risks your building presents and shield it as much as you can against floods.

Floods aren’t always at record heights, but even small amounts of water getting inside can lead to damage. You can limit the destruction by sealing any weaknesses and cracks in your structure and adding a waterproofing layer to the building itself.

Make a plan as well in case a flood does occur. You can establish an emergency and plan to help protect your property, you and your employees including evacuation routes and offsite backup plans for any critical documents and data.

SERVPRO of Merrimack is always standing by to dry your business building in Amherst, Milford, or Mt. Vernon after flooding. Our crew can be reached whenever you need us by dialing (603) 262-9293, so do please don't hesitate to ask us for help.

One of our managers visits your site, evaluating how a disaster might impact your property and operations. When we learn ahead of time about your layout, storage methods, essential equipment, and customer needs and expectations, our response in the event of a flood is personalized and optimized.

During the walkthrough of your business, we note the vulnerabilities and strengths of your current set up. Expect the SERVPRO team to make practical recommendations intended to keep flood damage to a minimum. We gain knowledge about items we might choose to pack-out and make recommendations to shield equipment and inventory from significant damage.

You give us the needed details by working through our mobile app. The Profile you build allows you to list priorities, nominate employee-agents to act on your behalf, share information about vendors and contractors who helped you build your infrastructure and systems, and designate SERVPRO as your preferred restoration partner.

Effective Water Cleanup For Carpeting In Amherst Homes

Overflows that occur in the bathroom or the kitchen of your Amherst home can initially stay contained to the waterproof flooring common to the construction of these areas. After only a brief period, this water can begin to spread to neighboring rooms and seep through carpeting to affect subflooring materials and floor support materials. It is important to address water loss incidents quickly in your home, as lingering moisture can prove devastating to structural integrity and provide the conditions necessary for damaging effects like mold growth.

While you might require water cleanup for your Amherst home, your carpets require specialized tools and equipment to restore. Our SERVPRO professionals have a mindset when we begin a project to protect and preserve original materials when possible. With carpeting, there is a finite timespan between saturation and irreparable damage, so immediate action is vital to prevent tear out and replacement.

With water loss incidents, assessing the damage is an important step that happens as soon as our technicians arrive at your home. We can determine the spread of the water with moisture detection equipment and thermal imagery. As it is easy for carpet fibers to absorb spreading water, this damage can quickly move beyond the base of the material and into subflooring or structural elements beneath it. Extraction and drying efforts must begin as quickly as possible.

Our SERVPRO team arrives with our ROVER weighted extractor equipment that can roll over carpeted areas and force water to the surface for removal by the high-powered vacuum attached to the system. Once saturation gets reduced, our team can float the carpeted areas by allowing our high-velocity air movers to force heated air beneath the carpet and above the subflooring material to maximize efficiency.

With many steps necessary to entirely removing the water and moisture damage from an overflow or appliance malfunction, you need professionals that can arrive quickly with the tools and expertise to make a difference. Our SERVPRO of Merrimack water restoration specialists can make the damage in your home “Like it never even happened.” Give our crew a call today at (603) 262-9293.

Why Our Professionals Are The Best At Tackling Mold Damage In Amherst

3/1/2019 (Permalink)

Why SERVPRO Why Our Professionals Are The Best At Tackling Mold Damage In Amherst Our technicians are IICRC certified and can safely remove mold from your home. We are available 24/7 so call us day or night and we will be there.

Skilled IICRC-Certified Technicians for Amherst Home Remediation

The discovery of fungal growth in your Amherst home has many owners turning to the internet for solutions that can save them money and allow them to care for their homes on their own. Unfortunately, with thousands of varieties of mold that could affect your property, solutions that can get found on the internet are not “one-size-fits-all,” which can lead to further structural damages or heightened potential health effects for those exposed in your house.

While professional mold remediation does cost money, it is often the only solution for removing harmful mold growth from your Amherst home and restoring the damages that the organism has caused. This effective approach begins with highly-trained IICRC-certified technicians that you can find on our SERVPRO rapid response team. This extensive training ensures that each of our professionals arriving at your home has the same knowledge and expertise to identify what the situation requires.

With inadequate “mold removal” strategies that you can find on your own, common practices only scratch the surface of the entire organism embedded in surfaces and materials throughout your property. While it might appear as though the work was successful, the organism continues to grow and spread beneath the surface, perpetually eroding and degrading the host material and continuing the potential health effects that result from exposure.

The extensive training that our SERVPRO professionals undergo to obtain their IICRC certifications for mold remediation is just the beginning for our knowledge of effective solutions for your damaged home. Our technicians continue training through ongoing educational opportunities both in-house and online to provide every customer with the most effective and efficient restoration work that their property requires amid a potential disaster like this.

As destructive as mold growth can be in your home, it is not something that you should leave to chance to remove. You can always count on the fast response of our SERVPRO of Merrimack mold remediation technicians. You can reach our team 24/7 by calling (603) 262-9293.

When Art Projects Cause Fire Damage, SERVPRO Technicians Remove the Mess from Merrimack Homes

Putting together a project that shows off your creative, artistic side can help build memories with your children while helping them increase fine motor skills. Some can become perfect one-of-a-kind decorations for your Merrimack residence. The different instruments used during the making of these crafts require special handling to keep things safe.  

When your home in Merrimack sustains fire damage because of a glue gun that tipped over or a soldering gun that burned too hot, SERVPRO can help undo the damage and clean everything up for you. The use or nearby storage of flammable liquids used to thin paints or clean brushes, as well as low-temp plastics can make a small blaze violently expand.  

Both tables and floors see a lot of use as spaces where families work on art projects together. Both of these can burn during a fire, as well as become part of the way a tiny fire gets out of hand. When SERVPRO's fire damage specialists mitigate such damage, we know that melted plastics and other substances can mar surfaces if we allow them to remain adhered to surfaces for longer than necessary. We start work as soon as possible to get things clean. Removing melted on arts and crafts products from flooring or other surfaces helps restore your home's interior, but removing the heavy soot generated by synthetic products and containers is also required.  

Your home's contents in the vicinity can once again feel clean and look perfect after a thorough treatment in our ultrasonic equipment. After a quick bath in one of our machines, your beautiful items soon look new. This machine uses a bubbling action, generated by ultrasonic waves, that acts how hydrogen peroxide does when you apply it to a wound. It leaves the finishes such as paint and varnish intact while abrading dust, soiling, and soot.  

We also remove soot from durable, non-porous surfaces in your property, giving all your affected contents and any structures the attention they need to restore your home's interior “Like it never even happened.” When structures become damaged, and beyond restorable, we remove these, also, and ensure the area is ready for the installation of replacement materials.  

SERVPRO of Merrimack understands that building memories within your family is a significant activity that covers many areas. We do not want fire damage to diminish the fun you and your children have, so we work quickly to clean the damage up and remove all traces of what might have been a traumatic event for your family.

How to Take the Headache out of Water Damage Remediation in Your Merrimack Business

2/14/2019 (Permalink)

Commercial How to Take the Headache out of Water Damage Remediation in Your Merrimack Business Keep your patrons loyal to your superb coffee shop by never displaying the closed sign due to water damage. Contact SERVPRO immediately.

Restoring Water Damage that Threatens Your Merrimack Coffee Shop

While it takes a great deal of effort to keep your Merrimack coffee shop moving at the pace of its customers, it can often be the areas you least expect trouble to provide you with a profit halting incident. Facilities like the bathroom are amenities for both your customers and employees to utilize, but this area can also be prone to damage from misuse or vandalism. When fixtures break naturally or get intentionally broken in the bathroom, it is important to begin cleaning up the resulting water loss as promptly as possible.

As your bathroom area is likely primarily tile, water damage in your Merrimack coffee shop can be less widespread with a fast response. Our SERVPRO team is available 24/7 to provide quick mitigation tactics to reduce the penetration of this pooling water through grouted joints in the tile flooring and damage to the drywall also used in the construction of the room.

With a fast response to the situation, our team can begin sopping up the water from the affected areas to reduce the penetration through vulnerable points in the tile. As this flooring material gets designed to be impervious to water, drying solutions beginning from the moment that our SERVPRO team arrives can keep water damage from affecting subflooring and concrete beneath the tile.

Drywall can absorb moisture quickly, especially when the broken fixture forces water back into wall cavities. Identifying this moisture involves thermal imagery equipment. It does not take long for sheetrock to become oversaturated, so using tools like our air movers, dehumidifiers, and the injectidry system can help to quickly drop moisture levels in these affected areas to preserve materials when possible.

With a higher volume of customers that rely on your baristas every day, it is important to have skilled technicians working to get your doors open quickly once you discover water damage in the bathroom. From initial cleanup and drying to reconstruction and plumbing repair, let our SERVPRO of Merrimack specialists help you restore your business. Give us a call today at (603) 262-9293.
