Opening a Window and Flipping on a Fan Is Probably Inadequate As Your Sole Water Loss Intervention -- Let SERVPRO Manage Your Marlborough Water Damage Repair

No time is preferable for water damage in Marlborough, but certain atmospheric conditions make cleaning up and drying out after water loss more challenging. Your first inclinations and the advice you receive from friends, family, and research might have you opening doors and windows wide as the water damage planning progresses, creating what the industry calls an open drying system. Depending on the materials affected, the temperature and humidity in different environments, and other factors, an open drying system could be spot-on effective or cause more water damage to repair.

Does Science Really Matter During Water Damage Repair, or Should I Follow My Instincts?

Repair of Marlborough water damage depends on a comprehensive understanding of how water, air, temperature, and structural components relate when materials are wet. Extraction of liquid water and then applied drying techniques are how research indicates damaged materials regain their function and appearance. Fundamental to the science of drying, or psychrometry, is that liquid water and airborne moisture (water vapor) damage the structure they touch. The damage is progressive and cumulative, emphasizing that rapid and equipment-assisted water removal and drying are vital to its repair.

Will Waiting for Water to Dry Out on Its Own Cause More or Less Damage?

Failing to respond immediately to water damage in your Marlborough home ensures that the harm will continue and worsen, complicating the repairs needed. If you try to hasten the drying by introducing outdoor air and running fans or dehumidifiers without managing psychrometric conditions appropriately, the hope of repairing the damage fades. Our managers and technicians complete the rigorous coursework developed by the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC). The training provides them with a context for planning an effective water damage repair plan, manipulating the three psychrometric conditions for optimal outcomes:

  • Humidity -- determines how receptive air is to accepting more water vapor from damaged materials
  • Airflow -- air movers positioned advantageously sweep vapor-saturated air away from surfaces, permitting the less humid air moved adjacent to wet surfaces to accept additional vapor
  • Temperature -- warmer air can hold more water vapor

Wait -- Do I Want My Home Filled with High-Humidity Air?

As the humidity of the air rises, the chance of additional damage to structures also increases. Our certified and experienced water damage repair technicians do not merely balance airflow and temperature until the humidity becomes oppressive. Once the air movement and temperature fully load the air with vapor, we configure dehumidifiers to absorb (desiccant) or condense the water vapor, containing it for disposal outside of the house.

Will Even Well-Balanced Drying Repair the Water Damage Alone?

It is also useful to note that failing to use aggressive extraction prior to choosing a drying system is a huge mistake. Extraction with pumps and truck-mounted extractors is vital to successful water damage remediation, substantially shortening the time needed to dry structures:

  • Truck-mount extractors can remove 36,000 gallons of water a day
  • High-efficiency dehumidifiers, in contrast, remove 30 gallons of fluid a day

We always start with pumping and extraction, completing the job with the most advantageous drying system.

Why Is Opening My House Up to Outside Air a Questionable Action During Water Damage Repair?

Employing an open drying system, where outside air exchanges with the air inside your home, can work in some circumstances. Those circumstances, however, are limited and unlikely to be easily understood without IICRC training. Only when the following conditions are in place and stable over time will the desired air exchange, and repair of water damage, occur:

  • The outdoor air must be warmer and much drier than the interior air (high temperature and low relative humidity)
  • The contrast between the humid indoor air and dry outdoor air must show at least a 20 grains per pound (gpp) lower humidity

Note: Optimal levels for efficient drying are at less than 40 percent relative humidity

All that it takes for an open drying system to slow down or reverse structural drying is for the weather to change. Additionally, 40 percent humidity may rarely or never occur in some climates.

Partnering with SERVPRO of Marlboro / Concord to repair water damage ensures your home benefits from scientifically based best practices, welcoming you back to “Like it never even happened,” condition. Call us at (978) 486-9868 day or night to schedule an assessment and planning session.

How do I Restore My House After A Fire?

7/17/2020 (Permalink)

House of matchsticks on fire Call our experts after you experience a fire disaster, we have training in fire & smoke restoration, odor control, upholstery & fabric cleaning.

Let SERVPRO Restore Your Littleton Home 

Restoring your Littleton property is a multi-tiered process. Our technicians scope the damage to determine your needs and for insurance purposes. You might face water damage if there were firefighting efforts along with deodorization and extensive cleaning. It is an arduous process. However, our technicians are well trained in restoration based on individual needs. 

What is the Difference Between Structure and Contents?

There Are Different Components to Every Home.

To best understand the fire damage restoration process, it is vital to know some of the terminologies. The structure of your home is the permanent parts of your house, such as the walls, flooring, and ceiling. The structure includes building materials such as drywall, lumber like studs and sheathing, exterior coverings, system components like electric and water, tiles, and more.. On the other hand, contents consist of everything else within your home, including appliances, furniture, and other personal belongings.

What are the Methods of Structural Cleaning?

  • Washable: These materials can sustain wet cleaning with both water and cleaning agents such as Wall Rinse and Industrial Cleaner.
  • Non-Washable: These materials cannot sustain wet cleaning. Water and cleaning agents would create smearing and push the residue deeper into porous surfaces. For non-washable materials, technicians use dry brushes or vacuums to remove residue.

Different fires produce different types of residues. For instance, protein fires, usually in the kitchen, create a sticky residue that requires special attention, such as a dry solvent cleaning agent to remove the residue. The type of surface also determines whether or not the material is washable or non-washable; more porous surfaces tend to absorb a more considerable amount of residue, making it more difficult to remove using dry methods. 

For assistance after a fire, contact SERVPRO of Marlboro / Concord at (978) 486-9868. We make it, "Like it never even happened."

How Do I Go About Cleaning Rough Surfaces in My Fire Damaged Home?

7/6/2020 (Permalink)

soot and smoke damage on a brick wall Do you know how to clean masonry? SERVPRO does!

SERVPRO Technicians Use Specialized Techniques and Products to Clean Porous Surfaces in Your Littleton home 

Depending on the severity of the fire in your Littleton property, virtually every surface may have some impact. Your items such as clothing and keepsakes suffer damage, but the materials and structure of your home can face loss, even in the case of smaller kitchen fires. 

How Should Exposed Brick in My Littleton Home be Cleaned?  

SERVPRO Removes Smoke Residue from Even the Most Difficult Places 

Masonry, such as brick walls or a fireplace, can incur fire damage in your Littleton home. It may seem simple to wash away the smoke residue. However, brick tends to be a porous surface that can hold soot and residue. It can be challenging to remove, especially if your brick surfaces do not have a sealer acting as a barrier. 

How Do SERVPRO Technicians Remove Residue from the Masonry? 

  • Dry Cleaning: Our team uses a sponge or brush to remove any loose residue carefully. If the residue begins to smear or feel wet, dry cleaning is not sufficient.
  • Wet Cleaning: Technicians use either an alkaline cleaner or strong acid depending on the surface and extent of the damage. With both types of cleaning, it is vital to rinse after use and protect surrounding surfaces fully.
  • Abrasion Blasting: Technicians use this method only when necessary, as it is the most aggressive method. Abrasives range from dry ice, corn cobs, or in extreme cases, sandblasting. 

Our professional fire restoration team comes equipped with the proper equipment, knowledge, and products to restore every surface. Each surface requires specific, different attention, differing by levels of fire damage, and type of residue. Sometimes too much agitation of a surface can cause more damage making it imperative to remove residues as carefully and efficiently.

What Do I Do About the Water Damage Inside of My Marlborough Home?

SERVPRO of Marlborough Can Help You Remediate the Water Damage Inside of Your Residence!

No Marlborough homeowner wants to discover water damage on their property. Home damages of any kind can cause unprecedented stress on the occupants of said house. However, it is a comfort to know that there is professional help nearby all day and all night hours.

Imagine a situation where you come back from a grocery errand and find your Marlborough kitchen flooded with water. The water supply line running to your sink had rusted significantly and finally broke down under the wear of time. Water gushed from the line and soaked the cupboard base, as well as the hardwood floor. It continued to spread and then settled under your fridge and stove. In a short amount of time, your small kitchen floor became sopping wet.

What Might Happen to My Kitchen if I Wait Too Long to Get Help? 

Water damage in Marlborough should be dealt with as quickly as possible. If you swiftly get help for your home, it can help ensure a smooth remediation. The longer that excess moisture sits, the more damage can accumulate. Without restoration, excess water can:

  • Cause wooden floor to bubble, swell, crack, and split
  • Wooden vanities and cupboards can absorb water and split
  • Appliances can rust
  • Mold can grow 

Getting help for your home as soon as possible can help ensure remediation costs are as low as possible.

If you can avoid any result of standing water, it would be mold damage. Mold can cause health effects in the individuals living in your home. Furthermore, it can damage any organic materials in your home, such as the wooden framing. Should you find excess moisture in your home, it is essential to get help within seventy-two hours, to avoid microbial growth.

How Do I Know SERVPRO Technicians Are Well Trained? 

Here at SERVPRO, we always try to ensure our technicians have the newest and latest information. From their first day, our technicians are continually being trained and learning new information. Most of our techs:

Trust SERVPRO to have your back when you are in your time of need. We're always available to help, no matter the day of the week or the time of day.

What Equipment Can SERVPRO Use to Mitigate the Damage in My House?

Our technicians are trained to use many advanced technological devices. To mitigate the damage in your kitchen, we can: 

  • Use wet/dry vacuums and extractors to remove standing water from your kitchen
  • Remove toe kicks and dust-guards to remove water from beneath your cupboards and appliances 
  • Set up drying equipment, such as flood drying mats, dehumidifiers, and air movers, to reduce excess moisture

Flood drying mats can help reduce moisture by pulling water up from the base of your floors, using intense suction. Our technicians can also use air-blasting tubes to provide dry air in tight and small spaces, which are hard to reach. Should mold damage have set in already, we can also use devices such as air scrubbers to reduce the musty-smell associated with it.

What If Deconstruction Needs to Happen? Can SERVPRO Do That? 

Occasionally, water damage can unfortunately go beyond just remediating it. If porous materials begin to show signs of mold growth, our technicians can: 

  • Make flood cuts to walls which have been affected and soaked by water, to minimize mold growth
  • Take apart cupboards and remove any material beyond repair
  • Pull up any flooring which has become too warped 

Our technicians can handle any deconstruction that needs to happen inside of your home. Furthermore, in some cases, we can handle reconstruction too. If we cannot provide reconstruction services, we can help you get in contact with a reputable contractor who can.

SERVPRO can try to help return your home to its preloss state if we use many techniques in conjunction with our advanced equipment. We can find hidden pockets of water with moisture meters and infrared cameras. We believe in doing a thorough job and always want to try and return your home to you, "Like it never even happened."

How Can I Clean Soot Residues From My House After a Fire?

6/10/2020 (Permalink)

Items with smoke/soot damage Littleton, your fire damage needs SERVPRO’s tools and reliability.

For Fire Damage Restoration in your Littleton Home Call SERVPRO

Once a fire starts, the smoke coming from it can negatively affect your building materials and contents in places located far from the source. Our SERVPRO technicians can find and eliminate many of the problems associated with smoke and soot because we understand the theory of fire and how smoke behaves.

What is the theory of fire?

When working on fire damage restoration in Littleton, our SERVPRO team utilizes knowledge of how blazes burn to remediate all of your problems. Knowing the theory of fire means that we understand the components of smoke and how heat, flames, and smoke can affect a structure and its contents. Understanding the theory also helps us figure out what items inside your house we can restore and which ones will have to be removed and replaced.

How does smoke behave inside my house once a fire starts?

The temperature of smoke: Since smoke is usually hotter than the air inside your house, it will rise. This process is called convection, which means that heat transfers through air movement. Warmer air will always rise above cooler air because it is not as dense.

The temperature of the surrounding surfaces: Hot smoke always moves towards cooler surfaces. This phenomenon is known as hot goes to cold, and it occurs because the cooler air surrounding the surface drops and allows the cold air to rise.

Arrangement of building space: When smoke comes from the fire's source, it can travel around anything that obstructs it via the air current that pushes it. Each obstruction can act as a filter and collect residues as the smoke passes.

Ionization: When plastic materials get burned, they tend to release electrically charged particles that get attracted to materials that have the opposite charge.

Understanding how smoke interacts with the surfaces inside your home in Hudson or Boxborough can help us remove all of the soot residues present. For professional assistance, call SERVPRO of Marlboro / Concord at (978) 486-9868 24/7.

6/8/2020 (Permalink)

Close up of water flooding on living room parquet floor in a house We’re Faster to Any Size Disaster!

Certain Telltale Signs and Regular Inspections Often Reveal Hidden Water Problems in Your Marlborough Home

Slow water leaks from damaged roofs and deteriorated pipes can go unnoticed for a long time. This dripping water can, over time, accumulate in attics and behind walls, causing destructive fungal growth and fostering harmful bacterial proliferation. This is why it is important to know the signs of a hidden water leak and to routinely look for them around your Marlborough home. Also, it is essential to periodically have your house inspected for water damage.

What are the Signs of Hidden Water Damage?

There are numerous sure signs of water damage.  SERVPRO, a Marlborough water cleanup service, tells area homeowners to look for the following hints of unseen water issues:

    •    Unpleasant musty odors
    •    Mold on baseboards, walls, or ceilings
    •    Waterstained or discolored structural elements
    •    Paint/wallpaper bubbling or drywall/plaster deterioration
    •    Warped walls or buckling ceilings/floors

If you notice any of these symptoms, you need to contact a good water cleanup and remediation company as soon as possible.

How Can SERVPRO Tell If I Have Unseen Leak-Related Damage?

SERVPRO has an arsenal of state-of-the-art moisture detection equipment at its disposal. This gear enables us to quickly and efficiently find the location of water leaks and identify the materials affected by the related moisture. Our high-tech inspection equipment includes:

    •    Moisture sensors that can detect moisture in walls and baseboards
    •    Meters to measure the actual moisture levels in structural elements and household contents
    •    Infrared cameras that can look through ceilings, walls, and baseboards to locate leak sources

Ultimately, these tools enable our technicians to rapidly diagnose your particular water issue and get to work resolving it.

As a homeowner, you need to remain vigilant in guarding against all water-related threats. This vigilance involves keeping a watchful eye out for signs of inconspicuous water damage and having your home periodically inspected for such problems.

How Can I Mitigate Storm-Related Flood Damage?

5/29/2020 (Permalink)

SERVPRO equipment on shelves in a warehouse. When storms wreak havoc Marlborough, call SERVPRO we will be right there.

You Can Mitigate Storm-Related Flood Damage in Marlborough by Taking a Few Precautionary Steps and Calling a Good Remediation Service Provider Like SERVPRO.  

New England is famous for its strong coastal storms that wreak havoc on the region every year.  This severe weather, which can occur at any time of the year, impacts Marlborough and causes a great deal of damage in our local area.  While this common yearly weather is bad enough, sometimes a “perfect storm” passes through and brings with it massive flooding that deluges our small city.  Since our area is prone to this kind of weather, local home and business owners should always prepare for potential storms in advance.  When a disaster does strike, they need to contact a good flood damage remediation service, like SERVPRO, as soon as possible.

What Makes SERVPRO an Excellent Flood Damage Cleaning and Remediation Service? 

As a local resident, you should research Marlborough’s flood damage cleaning and remediation services before disaster strikes.  When examining the various companies handing this kind of damage, some really stand out.  Businesses like SERVPRO offer numerous fast and cost-effective home-saving services, including:                  

  • Standing water removal, using truck-mounted extractors, portable extractors, and wet vacs
  • Professional disposal of hazardous waste and water
  • Expert disinfecting and cleaning of affected surfaces to hinder harmful fungi and bacteria growth
  • Scientific drying of interiors with dehumidifiers, air movers, strong fans, injectidry systems, and high-tech detection equipment like moisture meters and sensors
  • Odor removal with sprayers and foggers

Finding a good, reliable flood damage restoration company before storms hit makes it much easier to recover after they have passed.  Undoubtedly, doing this saves you time, money, and heartache in the long run.

What Precautionary Steps Can You Take to Secure Your Home Before a Storm?

As previously noted, a key way you can limit storm damage to your Marlborough residence is to adequately prepare your home beforehand.  This has been made easier in recent years by advancements in weather forecasting.  Forecasts often give homeowners a few days warning before big storms.  Once you become aware of a storm’s approach, these are some measures you can take to limit potential flood damage:

  • Shut off electricity, gas, and water utility switches/valves before you leave your house prior to a storm.  This simple measure protects your property from further damage and others from gas explosions and electrical shocks.
  • Repair and seal any foundation damage.  This repair work helps prevent floodwaters from entering the ground floor of your home.
  • Ensure that your roof is in good condition, and your gutters are clean.  These measures help safeguard against leaks and related water damage.
  • Properly cover your windows with storm shutters or plywood.  By doing so, powerful storm winds and airborne objects are less likely to break your windows and allow rainwater to enter your home.
  • Divert flood waters away from your residence with strategically-placed sandbags.

In doing these things, homeowners might be able to largely avoid major flood damage.  However, nature is never a hundred percent predictable, and trying to defend against it is rarely completely effective. 

If Floodwaters Damage My Marlborough Home, What Can SERVPRO Do?

Our technicians in Marlborough are trained and experienced in mitigating and cleaning up catastrophic flood damage.  This is done with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)-approved disinfectants, high-quality deodorants, and the most advanced equipment available in the industry.  The process our professionals generally take to return your home to pre-flood condition is as follows:

  • Arrival at your home, in most cases, within four hours of your call
  • Removal of standing floodwaters with submersible pumps and extractors
  • Clean up and disposal of hazardous flood wastes
  • Disinfection of affected surfaces with EPA-approved disinfectants
  • Drying the interior of your home with dehumidifiers, air movers, and connected injectidry systems
  • Periodically measuring moisture levels in the air and interior materials with thermohygrometers and moisture meters/sensors  
  • Ensuring that they have effectively completed all interior drying by reaching a pre-established drying goal
  • Deodorization/odor sealing with high-quality deodorants or paint

Usually, once this process is complete, our customers are pleasantly surprised by the results.  Our technicians are often able to save your home and limit overall flood-related damage.  Also, their efforts help safeguard your house from future issues, like harmful microbial growth, dry rot, and bad odors.  At the same time, SERVPRO can often save you time and money.

Although you live in an area prone to powerful storms and flood-related damage, you don’t have to live in fear of these things.  There are actions you can take to protect yourself and recover from these problems if you are ever unfortunate enough to encounter them.  Properly prepare your home before every major storm to limit effects from them.  Then, if you do need help recovering from a flood, call SERVPRO of Marlboro / Concord at (978) 486-9868 for assistance.

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.
