Can SERVPRO Stabilize Our Concord Warehouse After Water Damage?

5/15/2020 (Permalink)

A warehouse with blue shelving. Concord Businesses Protect Inventory from Water Damage with Rapid Response from SERVPRO.

SERVPRO Extracts Water and Preserves Contents in Concord Structures

Concord warehouse owners know all too well the risk of water damage to their premises. Water that enters a storage area might damage both the facility itself and everything stored there. Concerns about water damage are justified no matter what kind of warehouse you run – and it is even more worrying if you happen to store food or flowers or anything else that needs to be kept under controlled temperature and humidity.

The first thing to do after a leak or flood in your Concord warehouse is to call SERVPRO for water removal services. Our expert teams arrive ready to remove all the water using a combination of free-standing, truck-mounted and submersible pumps. However, water removal is only the first step in remediating the situation. Our overall aim is to restore your warehouse “Like it never even happened.”

We understand how important it is that your premises have optimum conditions as concerns temperature and humidity. That is why our IICRC-certified technicians pay such close attention to measuring the moisture and humidity and devising an appropriate drying plan.

We equip our teams with a range of perfectly calibrated instruments, including thermal hygrometers, moisture meters and probes, and thermal imaging software. Thermo hygrometers measure the humidity in the air, or in other words the amount of moisture the air is currently holding. Meantime, we use moisture meters and probes to measure the moisture content of particular parts of the warehouse, such as the walls, storage units, or under the floor. Finally, thermal imaging techniques allow us to see hidden patches of moisture that we could not detect with the naked eye.

Once we have a clear overview of the situation in your premises, we devise a drying plan to restore it to the best temperature and humidity. Drying out something as large as a warehouse is a challenge, but do not worry. Our experienced teams are well versed in how to calculate the correct number and placement of dehumidifiers and air movers for maximum effect.

Stabilizing the conditions in your warehouse is a vital part of recovery after water removal, and you can rely on SERVPRO to get the job done right. Protecting the contents is our highest priority.

SERVPRO of Marlboro / Concord is on hand to help with any water removal process for Marlborough, Concord, and Littleton. Simply call us today at (978) 486-9868 for help and advice.

What Should I Do If I Find Mold In the Attic Of My Marlborough Home?

5/12/2020 (Permalink)

Mold on a cream colored wall. Marlborough Mold Remediation and Cleaning It Up

Call SERVPRO for Mold Remediation.

Mold in your attic is a problem that requires immediate remediation because if it is left unchecked, it can quickly spread to other areas of your home, and might also cause damage to the structure of your attic and any items that are stored there. Fungus likes damp environments, and an attic often provides just such an environment and might even become a rich breeding ground for more mold.

You might be wondering what to do if you find mold in the attic of your Marlborough home, or even how to tell if you have fungus growing there. Finding out whether you have mold is usually quite easy: Look for telltale patches of black or greenish discoloration and also take note of any moldy or musty smells.

Now you are sure you have mold, or at least strongly suspect that you do, it is time to call SERVPRO. We train our IICRC-certified technicians in all aspects of remediation. We start with asking some simple questions to get a clear picture of your situation and then we send out a fully equipped team to assess your attic and decide on the best course of action.

Is there anything you can do while you wait for our professional team to arrive? The answer is yes; there are some things you can do. If there is an obvious source of water or damp that you can remove safely, please do so. We recommend keeping the affected area dry. If you happen to have an HVAC system or fans running in your attic, turn those off too as they might help spread spores to other areas of your home.

If it is safe for you to remove porous materials you may do so, as porous materials also present a spreading risk; however please only carry out removal if you have protective equipment on hand to wear. Removal must be conducted slowly to avoid agitating the spores and causing further spreading – if in doubt do not do it.

SERVPRO recommends that you avoid touching or trying to spray or clean the mold and that you do not attempt to paint over affected areas.

Stay out of your attic until we arrive to assist you. Our experienced technicians come prepared to set up containment to prevent mold spreading to other parts of your home, and we use negative air machines to vent contaminated air outside your house. We also use a range of cleaning protocols including HEPA vacuuming, scrubbing, abrasion, and immersion to clean salvageable items and remediate mold growth on walls, floors or ceilings.

Do not ignore a mold problem in the attic of your home. Call SERVPRO of Marlboro / Concord at (978) 486-9868 for help.

I Need My Wet Basement in Marlborough Dryied and Protected After a Storm, What Can SERVPRO Do for Us?

5/9/2020 (Permalink)

Standing water that is backed up to a yellow home. If your basement suffers from a major or minor flooding event, pick up the phone and call SERVPRO for successful drying services.

Our Technicians Will Investigate ALL of the Causes of Your Wet Basement After a Storm, Before Commencing With the Remediation Process.

Marlborough and our part of Massachusetts went through an incredible amount of extreme weather this year, and the upcoming winter is not expected to be any milder right now. Problems and damage not completed repaired or restored can resurface after the first heavy rain.

Many homeowners found themselves with a wet basement in Marlborough after a storm last year. If the water level was low, many of them used a water-vac to remove it and then let everything air dry as best as possible. At SERVPRO, we understand that this does not solve the problem, only push it back for more water intrusion later.

With the next storm, more water finds its way into the basement. After one of our restoration teams arrive, they start with two tasks, remove the water and determine how it entered the basement.

They start removal with a commercial grade pump to remove any water higher than ankle-deep. Depending on the area of the basement, this can take a few hours to a day or two. If there are any carpets on the floor, team members next use extraction wands to draw out the water and then remove the carpets to dry outside. If there is a pad underneath them, they dispose of it immediately.

With the water gone, a SERVPRO inspector carefully checks the walls and floor for cracks and seepage points. Some of these can be as small as the tip of a pencil, so the inspection takes a long time. In some cases, a seep does not show until enough water comes through to reveal a damp patch.

Technicians fill any cracks and seep with hydraulic cement to seal them off. Next, they coat the walls and the floor if needed with a layer of masonry cement. It adheres tightly to concrete and forms an excellent barrier against further water intrusion.

If there are a large number of cracks inside the basement, then there are usually larger cracks in the outside walls. To protect the basement and the foundation, we recommend allowing our team to dig out around the foundation, expose the walls, and cover them with a thick, liquid rubber compound. It seals the entire concrete surface and does not leak unless there is physical damage that separates the blocks.

Flooding, Water Extraction, and Drying--Call SERVPRO

Marlborough has had fewer storms this year, but it is not over yet. Winter weather can tear into a home from top to bottom, causing storm damage issues at every level.

 After a storm, a Marlborough wet basement usually means there is more damage than just floodwater. There was a pathway for enough of it to get in and leave more water than a mop and a shop-vac can handle. SERVPRO technicians are trained to remove the water, find out how it got in, and lower the risk of a flood happening again.

If the water level is more than ankle high, we bring in a commercial grade pump to remove it. Even in a larger home, we can clear the excessive in a single morning or afternoon. For lower levels of water, we bring in water extraction wands and other suctioning devices. These devices are designed to draw water off of floors and out of carpets without harming the surface or tearing up the nape. Contaminated water always plays a role in salvaging materials.

As SERVPRO technicians remove the water, one of our inspectors determines how it got in. Since the problem appeared after a storm, the inspector looks at the foundation walls which make up the basement for seepage points and cracks. Cracks are easy to spot, but a seepage point often looks like any other patch of rough surface on the exposed cinder blocks.

To seal and cover the damage, we use hydraulic cement to fill in the cracks and seepage points. When we complete that, we cover the entire wall surfaces with masonry cement. It is a thin coating that adheres to the surface and forms a waterproof barrier.

The water should be stopped before it gets into the foundation though. Once we have the inside taken care of, the inspector moves outside the home. Our recommendation is to allow us to dig out around the home and expose the foundation walls where we perform the same inspection as we did inside. We seal any cracks and seepage points with the hydraulic cement, but we cover the outside walls with a liquid rubber compound. The only way water gets past these barriers afterward, is if there is enough damage to shift the house even partially off of its foundation walls and pad.

A wet basement is usually a minor problem, but it can become an expensive one if not dried and repaired properly. SERVPRO of Marlboro / Concord is here to help you protect your home from this and other effects of severe storms. Call us today at (978) 486-9868 for more information and to set up an inspection.

How Do We Get An Odor Out Of Our Marlborough Business?

5/6/2020 (Permalink)

A man with a white clothespin on his nose. SERVPRO Eliminates Odors that Affect Commercial Buildings in Marlborough

SERVPRO Assesses and Eliminates Sources of Odors and Improves IAQ to Commercial Buildings.

Maybe you are coping with a lingering smoke odor after a fire at your Marlborough business. Moldy areas can emit that musty smell even after remediation. Traumatic or criminal events also have residual aromas that are unpleasant and upsetting to employees and customers. Use the expertise of our deodorizer specialists to eliminate the odor.

When planning for odor removal in your Marlborough shop, hotel, restaurant, factory, or other business our crews follow a step by step process. Each step may be repeated until the odor is removed entirely. Some of the processes involve cleaning and disposal of smelly residues. Others use advanced technology to rid the area of the smell in other ways. We are confident that our crews can find a solution to even the toughest odor problems.

The first attempts to rid the areas affected are pretty intuitive. We discuss what the owner, manager, and employees of the business feel might be the source of the smell. Then we scour the area to look for remnants that may have gone undiscovered. Odor removal typically improves Indoor Air Quality, IAQ. For example, if the smell is linked to dead animals all carcasses must be found, bagged, and discarded properly.

The SERVPRO team also looks for residues that make surfaces smell. Soot and smoke are typical examples, but a crime scene could have pepper spray or tear gas remnants. The residues are cleaned off as thoroughly as possible, and we may use heat to drive the odor vapors out of porous articles.

Next, persisting odors may respond to professional air spray deodorizers. SERVPRO employees try to replicate the way the odor was dispersed originally to capture and eliminate the smell. Smoky odors are often defeated by thermal fogging, where deodorants are combusted in a heat chamber, and then fogged in an area. The deodorant particles cling to odor particles and neutralize them at a molecular level.

Hydroxyl generators emit tiny particles that also latch onto the smelly bits, airborne and on surfaces, and change the chemical composition to eliminate the odor. SERVPRO may use ozone in certain circumstances, but only when other attempts are unsuccessful.

Sealing in odors is an option when you do not want to discard articles that may carry the smell. Sealing is not always the perfect solution but can work well with other strategies. SERVPRO crews are relentless until one of the efforts works and the smell is gone.

If persistent odors plague your commercial space, rely on SERVPRO of Marlboro / Concord to find a deodorizing solution that is permanent. Call (978) 486-9868 to schedule an odor eliminating consultation.

What Are Some Fundamentals to Know About Flood Damage Remediation in My Littleton Home?

5/3/2020 (Permalink)

Insulation being blown into an attic. When the insulation in your attic gets wet, problems such as mold damage can occur. Contact our team to investigate the extent of the water damage.

Heavy Rains Can Cause Flood Damage To Your Littleton Attic Due to Faulty Roofing.

Thunderstorms can bring intense winds and rains to your home, but they can become disastrous and cause flood damage inside of your home when the roof above you is sporting a hole. Over time, roofs become weathered and damaged. With enough time, those damages can become extensive and lead to holes forming as the shingles rot away. Getting your roof replaced is expensive, but pushing it off as long as possible can cause more problems, such as rain pouring through a hole and into your home.

The water from flood damage inside of your Littleton  attic soaked the insulation and wooden structure inside. Some of the water even traveled down to the structure of your house, causing bubbles to form in the paint covering the walls in your living room. In this situation, the best thing to do as quickly as possible is to call someone about the hole in your roof as well as calling for professional water damage remediation services.

When you get in touch with SERVPRO, we make sure to send our technicians to your home as quickly as possible. After a brief investigation, our technicians may decide it is best to remove the soaked insulation, especially if this is not the first time rain has gotten into your home and there is evidence of mold damage. Afterward, SERVPRO can create a drying plan and then begin to set up equipment in your attic, meant to create an ideal environment for evaporation.

SERVPRO can set up axial fans, air movers, and dehumidifiers in the attic, devices that work in conjunction to remove moisture from the air, as well as to introduce fresh and dry air to the area of impact. Where water slipped down to your living room, we can feed air blasting tubes down through the walls, from the attic, to ensure that the space between your walls is also adequately dry.

If sudden flood damage impacts your home, get help immediately. Speak with SERVPRO of Marlboro / Concord by dialing the number (978) 486-9868. Day or night, our technicians are always available to help you.

Why Do I Need Professional Fire Damage Restoration After a Fire In My Littleton Property?

4/30/2020 (Permalink)

A home with a fire burning out of two sets of windows. To ease the process of restoring your property after a fire, you should call SERVPRO.

Smoke, Soot Particles, and Odors Need SERVPRO Restoration Methodologies for Comprehensive Cleanups.

Fire damage to your Littleton home can be a traumatic experience for any homeowner. Apart from the damage due to the heat, fire can cause significant damage to your property and belongings due to smoke and soot. The smoke particles can coat walls, ceilings, and almost any surface and cause permanent damage if not cleaned quickly and efficiently.

The particles in the smoke contain unburned carbon that can be very difficult to remove after a fire to your Littleton property. Furthermore, not all soot particles are alike, and it takes a multi-step process to eliminate them. It is a job for the professionals who have years of training and expertise in fire damage restoration. Here are some of how professionals get rid of the smoke and soot damage from your property.

Strategies are developed based on the type of soot residue

The plan to restore the smoke damage depends on the type of smoke residue. Here at SERVPRO our team of expert restorers evaluates the type of smoke residue and prepares a plan accordingly. The dry smoke residue is easier to clean compared to the wet smoke residue. As dry smoke residue does not stain the surface as intensely as wet smoke residue, it is easier to remove by wiping. Our IICRC certified technicians use less aggressive methods to clean such films.

Wet smoke residues, on the other hand, are significantly more difficult to clean. SERVPRO technicians use a variety of methods such as wet-cleaning, foam-cleaning and abrasive cleaning to mitigate the damage caused by wet smoke residues. The heat streams during a fire can drive these smoke particulates deep into cracks and crevices and porous surfaces further exacerbating the cleanup difficulty.

Deodorizing  

Smoke and soot pose another challenge during the restoration process- the odor. If proper precautions are not used during the restoration process, the odor can linger on long after the fire. SERVPRO technicians use equipment such as Ultra Low Volume (ULV) foggers, heat foggers, deodorizing beads and other methods to combat the odors after a fire. Our technicians have years of experience in managing odors after fires of all sizes. We get your home smelling like home again in no time.

How To Deal With Various Aspects Of Fire damage In Hudson

Considering it only takes 30 seconds for a small fire to turn into a huge blaze, every Hudson home faces the risk of fire damage. With more and more items being made from synthetic materials nowadays, fires can start and spread within a few minutes. These materials also tend to produce excessive smoke that can damage areas not affected by the flames. The wrong approach can hamper recovery efforts.

Most cases of fire damage in Hudson also include damages from water. When fighting the fire, no one concentrates on the amount of water used so it might form pools or soak into porous materials. Extracting such water should be given priority once restoration starts because extended water exposure has its challenges. Our SERVPRO team is well equipped with extractors and other tools necessary to handle this.

In most cases, your insurance covers the costs involved. However, you might ruin the claim process if you fail to do proper documentation. Instead of waiting for the adjuster to arrive before starting the restoration, you can find out if photographic evidence is enough for the claim process. Calling the adjuster can help you confirm this and begin restoration. Our SERVPRO technicians can help you take the necessary photographs as they do the restoration. Doing this saves time thus limiting the chances of additional damages happening.

Unless it is a massive blaze that consumes the entire structure and its contents, most fire incidents leave many salvageable items. However, it might not be easy to tell the difference especially when everything is covered in soot. Our SERVPRO team begins by separating items into three groups. The groups include salvageable, unsalvageable and questionable items. To a trained eye, it is easier to make these distinctions. We can also move some contents to an offsite facility for cleaning. Move Outs improve the outcome of the salvage process.

Call SERVPRO at Marlboro/Concord at (978) 486-9868 today to talk to one of our fire restoration experts.

Can SERVPRO Help Me With Water Damage From An Ice Dam In Littleton?

4/24/2020 (Permalink)

A gutter with icicles hanging from the gutters. Icicles are beautiful to see but it Ice is forming in your gutters, you could get water damage inside your house.

How Ice Dams Cause Water Damage to Homes in Littleton, SERVPRO Can Help.

The attic space above your home experiences much more significant fluctuations in temperature throughout the year than the rest of your Littleton home does. When attics become warmer than the outside air and begins melting the underside of any snow or ice on the roof, water from this snow and ice melting can enter the home.  

Littleton homeowners might experience water damage inside their homes when ice dams form on their roof. An ice dam traps water while the weight of the ice and compacted snow forces the water to travel upward in between shingles. This water eventually drips or trickles into the attic area and begins destroying materials. Insulation can become too compressed to protect from loss of heat, which often creates increasingly more massive ice dams later.  

Water that enters your home in this manner can ruin more than your insulation. It can create the perfect oasis for microbes to occupy in your attic. Any air ducts with cracks or other breaks in them can whisk microbial matter into your living space downstairs, also. More visibly, water from slowly leaking roofing can cause stains on ceilings and in the upper portion of walls. Floors in your attic can become weak, making them unsafe. Items of a more fragile nature stored in your attic can also sustain water damage directly from seeping water or indirectly from water vapor that condenses on the surfaces of a box's interior and its contents.  

The technicians at SERVPRO professionally mitigate the effects of water damage caused by ice dams in attics and living spaces. We can tarp the roof for temporary relief and recommend a team of professional roofers who can make the repairs necessary to prevent the problem from recurring. Once water finds a way into a home, that pathway remains open until we close it off physically.  

SERVPRO employees understand the importance of following local guidelines in the disposal of materials like insulation, and we always do this in the safest manner possible. Double bagged materials remain safely contained as we carry them out of your residence. We bring the equipment necessary to dry out any dampness remaining quickly, as well. Once finished, we clean up the area and leave it all looking “Like it never even happened.” 

SERVPROof Marlboro / Concord is always ready to help you restore your home by mitigating water damage that can continue to spread and worsen. Call us at (978) 486-9868, so we can help you, also. We serve those in Bolton, Stow, and Acton, as well as neighboring communities.
