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.

Are You Building a Fire With Your Merrimack Craft Supplies?

Fire Damage Are You Building a Fire With Your Merrimack Craft Supplies? Hot glue guns and other crafting supplies can cause fires.

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. Call us at (603) 262-9293, so we can help you get things back to how you want them.

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.

Blizzards Spell Big Trouble For Your Amherst Home

2/6/2019 (Permalink)

Storm Damage Blizzards Spell Big Trouble For Your Amherst Home The high-speed winds and snow associated with blizzard conditions can create problems that are best mitigated by a professional restoration company.

Flood Damage Technicians In Amherst Talk About Problems Associated With Blizzards

The storms that come through Amherst in the winter time can be brutal. The high-speed winds and snow associated with blizzard conditions can create problems that are best mitigated by a professional flood damage restoration company such as SERVPRO. Winds can blow snow drifts or other objects into weak spots in your exterior walls or windows. Any type of hole that gets created can become a portal for water to enter the interior of your structure. Moisture can then start to saturate your contents and building materials as well as cause other types of flood damage.

If snow builds up deep enough outside it is possible that moisture or snow will find its way into your building. If the snow gets into your house, it is wise to call in our SERVPRO technicians to complete flood damage restoration in Amherst. If the snow gets heavy enough, it could cave in your roof. If any snow or ice enters your home, moisture related issues can occur quickly as the snow heats up and thaws out. Water can then saturate your contents and building materials and cause them to lose their structural integrity.

If water or snow gets into your structure after a winter storm, our SERVPRO technicians start by making sure your structure is secure and taking measures to prevent more moisture from entering. Next, we begin removing as much of the snow or water while it is in its liquid form as possible. We accomplish water removal using a variety of tools including high powered vacuums and mops.

After we remove as much liquid and frozen H2O as we can, we begin the structural dry-out phase. During this step, we use specialized equipment to create an environment that is ideal for rapid drying and evaporation. We use heavy-duty box fans or air movers to create a circular movement of the air so that moisture keeps evaporating from wet materials to find equilibrium. We then set up dehumidifiers to remove moisture from the air and exhaust out hot, dry air to be used in the circulation.

If you ever notice excessive moisture after a storm, call SERVPRO of Merrimack at (603) 262-9293 any time of the day.

Why Swift Remediation is Needed to Prevent Water Damage to Your Milford Home

1/30/2019 (Permalink)

Why SERVPRO Why Swift Remediation is Needed to Prevent Water Damage to Your Milford Home This damage was caused by an upstairs leaking toilet. The damage spread even to the flooring downstairs.

The Reasons Why SERVPRO's Water Damage Experts are Right for Your Milford Home

Milford homes experience water in all three forms. Water from overflowed sinks or leaky pipes, water vapor from hot showers and cooking, and even ice that forms on your roof can cause deterioration and other problems.
 
Taking care of your Milford home throughout the year includes preventing water damage, regardless of the form it takes, which is why SERVPRO's specialists train extensively, to ensure that we can effectively mitigate the effects of water, humidity, and ice. Our employees earn different certificates from the IICRC and arrive with industry-standard equipment when preparing to assist homeowners.
 
Once water enters your home's living space, breaking free from where it should only exist, damage begins to occur. This slowly spreads when leaks or drips are the sources, even if the damage seems inconsequential. Sudden problems involving large volumes of water are more easily seen and reacted to, but both types can damage a home and lead to secondary water damage. SERVPRO employees are also highly skilled in mitigating such issues, from stains on ceilings and mold in attic spaces.
 
Your home's various materials react to the presence of water in different ways, but we understand this, and the most efficient ways to make it all “Like it never even happened.” Our technicians are always ready to repair the damage and restore your home's integrity.
 
Ice dams and frozen gutters can force moisture into your home, and then spread downhill, while saturated ground near your foundation can increase your basement's humidity excessively. Ventilation systems can carry steam from the dryer to the basement to the upstairs, and everywhere in between, and along with it, spores that lead to microbial infestations. A leak under a sink can trickle down and across your floor, staining the ceiling below while weakening your floor. There is no reason to tolerate these deficits when we can easily make things right again.
 
Call SERVPRO of Merrimack at (603) 262-9293 to get things squared away in your home, quickly and efficiently. We are always ready to help you with water damage issues and other forms of deterioration your home might experience.

How SERVPRO Remediates Mold in Your Amherst Home

Mold Remediation How SERVPRO Remediates Mold in Your Amherst Home Is mold hiding behind your drywall?

Our Mold Remediation Services are Effective in Controlling Microbial Populations in Amherst Houses

SERVPRO invests significant amounts of energy, time, and money into training our employees and supplying the most effective equipment to put into our Green Fleet. We do this because we want to serve the people in Amherst to the best of our ability, effectively cleaning and mitigating homes from the effects of disasters.  

One way we do this in Amherst is by using highly effective mold remediation techniques. We want our customers to know that while there is no such thing as complete elimination of microbes from a house, we always do our utmost best to reduce the majority of microbes inside their home. Because spores regularly enter the house, controlling their ability to grow is what becomes crucial in our power to control the life cycle of mold within the confines of the home.  

To control mildew and mold, we must control their water intake, and the most effective way to do this is to eliminate it from your home. Without water, microbes become dormant and no longer release spores, nor spread in size. We must consider all sources of water, including condensation. Microbes do not require much water at all to become a problem.  

After our infrared thermal imaging cameras reveal damp areas and possible sources of moisture, we eliminate these and then dry the area. This step prevents future mold from surviving if newly released spores settle in the area.  

We then remove mold-covered materials, but only if we determine these have become damaged. When mold only covers the surface, we can clean these things instead. It is always more cost effective to restore structures through cleaning than it is to replace those same items. It also takes significantly less time, allowing us to finish more quickly that if we needed to wait for replacement materials to arrive.  

Before remediating contaminated areas of any mold damage, we build a temporary chamber to contain the microbes in the area. As we work, this machine runs continuously, creating a negative pressure, all while whisking dirty air through the device and then outside a window.  

Once done, we clean the area with HEPA-filtered vacuums. These trap any dust, mold, spores or other debris and leave the area safe, “Like it never even happened.” We apply a quick-drying liquid antimicrobial agent to kill off any residual microbes and prevent any newly settled ones from ever finding a supportive environment again.  

SERVPRO of Merrimack can help you keep your home free of an over-abundance of mold and mildew. Call us for professional mold remediation services. Our number is (603) 262-9293 and is answered 24/7, 365 days a year.

SERVPRO Provides Odor Control for Our Merrimack Neighbors

Building Services SERVPRO Provides Odor Control for Our Merrimack Neighbors Don't Use a Clothes Pin for Odor Control in Merrimack--Call SERVPRO

Merrimack Household Odors, Whether Real or Imagined Need SERVPRO Service for Clean Air Quality

Smells can last a lifetime in your residence without even realizing the bad odors in your home. Surveys show that odors can catch the attention of the Hippocampus, in the brain and retain certain memories from that odor. Creating memories is always important because our memory recalls certain snapshots of our life, and with bad odors lingering around it can create bad memories associated with the house, and nobody wants that. Phantosmia, or imagined smelling of an odor, further complicates the issue.

SERVPRO can come in and remove those nasty odors around your Merrimack house and get it back to smelling fresh again. Bad odors can stem from fire & smoke damage, musty refrigerators, unwashed bedding or even your furry friend’s shaggy hair and dirty paws, so it is important to understand what you can do to keep those odors from lingering around the house.

The first trick is to eliminate the source of the smelly odors. Say the source is the nasty odor stemming from the smoking habits that was left behind by the previous owner. There are many do it yourself techniques you can use to try to get rid of that lingering smoke odor. However most times it does not eliminate the deep odor itself. When you call SERVPRO, we are there to respond as quickly as possible, and we have the tools and necessary equipment to take care of that smoke that was left behind and to locate the source easily.


SERVPRO uses a set of particular chemicals that we use to pre-spray the surface, and then we clean the surfaces thoroughly and intensely. We use orange and lemon scented chemicals to give the surfaces a proper fresh wash. After the washing of the walls, ceilings, carpets, and furniture is completed, we utilize a sealer to conceal the surfaces and keep them clean and free of the nicotine residue. The HVAC system will need to be cleaned out as well due to the piles of debris left from the smoke and odors in the air and clumping up in the vent registers. When the heat or A/C is turned on, all those particulates of smoke debris are just going to blow back into the house, causing the lingering smell of smoke to recycle throughout the home. After everything is heavily washed the SERVPRO team use chemicals to deodorize the smell entirely to keep those nasty smoke odors from destroying your new journey in your new home.

SERVPRO also has the availability to place HEPA air scrubbers with additional charcoal filters to help move the nicotine odor molecules out of the house as smooth and quickly as possible.
Fortunately for us, we have the world's best furry companions with us on this earth, unfortunately for us, they get dirty and bring in elements that can linger around the house for long periods. Creating those memories with your furry friends is so important for development, therefore clean and fresh odors are a must!  Pets do produce dander, dirt, dandruff and more grimy smells that come from the outside and bring them into your house. SERVPRO can come in and conduct a deep cleaning to get rid of the animal hair or fur to get the debris from spreading.

We have highly advanced vacuum wands and fully certified equipment that can eliminate those dirty odors and debris from your furry little friends. In any case of how the odors get into your house, they still are there. You can always call SERVPRO of Merrimack to help deodorize your home and get rid of those nasty lingering odors.
