Commercial Expert Help For Marlborough Office Wet Carpet Woes SERVPRO's Water Extraction from Wet Carpets Mitigates Damages in Marlborough Commercial Properties

Wet and Water Damaged Commercial Carpets Get the Professional Service Needed for Restoration from SERVPRO in the Marlborough Area

Wall to wall carpet gives a professional look to your Marlborough office or hotel, but adequately maintaining it is necessary to preserve its appearance and function. Leaving the cleaning and repair of damage to your floor coverings to your housekeeping staff might not be the best choice, especially if a significant water incursion soaks your carpet. Our crews are experienced in resolving wet carpet issues and are available to help quickly.

If a water cooler or lobby aquarium breaks and spills in your Marlborough office, restoring and drying the wet carpet must be job one. Merely mopping up the moisture or renting a cleaner cannot give you the peace of mind a professional restoration delivers. Carpets take a beating even without the addition of excess water but are expensive and time-consuming to replace. IICRC trained technicians from our production teams approach the job of removing the water and drying the floor and carpet with strategies back by research and best practices.
 
Removing the carpet is an option, but that is disruptive to your business operations. SERVPRO crews receive advanced training on in-place drying of the floor, padding, and carpeting. When we arrive, we assess the extent of the water saturation and take steps to minimize further migration of the fluid to unaffected areas of the carpet. Drying the several layers of floor covering requires the operation of weighted extraction wands, using pressure to force the moisture out of carpeting and padding. Only certified technicians can ensure the repeated passes of the extractors do no damage the carpet further, including potential rips, tars, stretching, and delamination of the backing from the fibers. When commercial grade glue-down carpeting has been affected by a large water spillage, the requirements are different and can be covered in another blog article.
 
Sometimes it makes sense to remove and replace the padding, particularly when the water holds contaminants. This can be done in stages without requiring the entire carpet to be taken up at one time. As the areas under the padding are exposed, examination and drying of the underlying floor can occur. SERVPRO crews work closely with you, and our office provides a liaison to your insurance company as we complete the job to ensure the restoration efforts chosen, including replacement of parts of the carpeting system, are covered by your policy.
 
Cleaning, sanitizing, and thorough drying must also be a part of the procedure. SERVPRO uses effective and dedicated carpet cleaning solutions and EPA registered disinfectants after the water removal to ensure clean and sanitary conditions. We position supports and air movers to direct warm airflow over and under the carpet while running dehumidifiers to speed the water vapor migration out of the fibers.
 
SERVPRO of Marlboro / Concord is ready to assist when a water spill or crisis soaks your office carpet. Call (978) 486-9868 immediately to avoid secondary damage -- reach us 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Returning A Marlborough Hotel Room To Non-Smoker Odor-Free Status

Commercial Returning A Marlborough Hotel Room To Non-Smoker Odor-Free Status SERVPRO Can Eliminate Odors from Marlborough Hotels and Residential Properties

SERVPRO Remedies Odor Problems in Commercial Establishments in the Marlborough Area

As a hospitality and lodging provider, you want each of your guests to find comfort and relaxation in their Marlborough hotel room. You make a promise to guests that request a non-smoking room that their environment is free of the smell and residues associated with cigarettes while staying at your hotel. Our deodorization technicians and innovative equipment may be your answer.
 
When guests check into the non-smoking room your staff prepared for them, the success of any odor removal techniques used in your Marlborough hotel is on trial. If a previous guest ignored the signs and smoked in the room, your non-smoking customers may be upset at the lingering odor. Effective odor removal often requires trying many approaches until one works, and our OCT, odor control technicians, IICRC-certified crews are familiar with this process.
 
Upon arrival, SERVPRO’s crew lead assess the room or rooms that need odor removal. Although it may seem that the smell is airborne only, we seek out other, remediable sources. Furnishings and carpeting attract and hold the tiny particles of ash, tar, and other substances incompletely burned. We start with a thorough cleaning, including the upholstery and carpet using our commercial strength steam extractors and professional cleaning products.
 
Nicotine and other substances can stain walls and from there emit smells. Our crews wash walls with appropriate cleaners. SERVPRO might suggest repainting the walls and sealing wooden portions of furnishings and headboards to keep odor penetrating beneath these surfaces from vaporizing. Frequently each room has a separate heating and cooling system, and we also inspect and clean the vents and any ductwork to prevent the smoke smells from recirculating.
 
SERVPRO also can access resources that eliminate odors by changing the chemical composition of the minute particles floating in the air and embedded in surfaces and fixtures. One option is thermal fogging, a process where air cleaners combust in a heated chamber and then bond with and render smell-free the particles remaining in the room. Other resources include hydroxyl generators and other oxygenation systems. A form of UV light creates the hydroxyl radicals that then react with solid pollutants like cigarette smoke and help destroy them. These processes eliminate the odors, not just cover them up like most air fresheners.
 
Efficient and profitable management of your hotel requires all rooms possible are available, and SERVPRO of Marlboro / Concord is ready to deodorize areas of your premises damaged by previous guests smoking in spaces designated “non-smoking.” Call for a consultation at (978) 486-9868.

Deodorization For The Odors That Imperil Your Concord Business

Commercial Deodorization For The Odors That Imperil Your Concord Business Make Your Concord Business Center "Purr with Purity," Call SERVPRO for Odor Control and Improved IAQ

Concord Enterprises Turn to SERVPRO for Odor Control and Abatement

Businesses come and go throughout Concord, and some of the ones that are on their way out of the picture can leave an unwelcome reminder of their presence by a lingering odor in the building or strip center unit that traditional cleaning and deodorizing spray cannot overcome. Your new office could have recently experienced a fire before you acquired it, for instance. Your new restaurant dining area could get positioned in what used to be the locker room for a local athletic team. The list goes on. Fortunately, in circumstances where you have a persistent odor to overcome, and you cannot seem to handle it alone, you can count on professional restoration.

Regardless of what is causing the lingering foul odor in your Concord building, you want to be able to separate your new business from whatever happened in that space before. Our SERVPRO restoration specialists can help you through our expertise and sophisticated equipment to remove this persistent problem once and for all.

When our team arrives at your building, we go over the entire facility to ensure that there are no apparent sources of the odor, and to assess how widespread this effect is throughout your building. To remove this odor, our SERVPRO technicians often employ thermal fogging machines throughout all of the affected areas. This process integrates open areas, surfaces, furniture, fabrics, and textiles into the deodorization efforts.

This machine emits a chemical compound that can break apart foul odor molecules in the air and those that embed into surfaces and fabrics. This process neutralizes the molecules and leaves no discernable smell behind. Our SERVPRO OCT odor control technician may set up an air scrubber or two that utilizes several different types of filters. A HEPA, high-efficiency particulate absorber filter, can capture airborne motes as small as 0.3 microns that may contain smoke, dander, pollen, mold spores, and varying odorous materials. The second filter is activated carbon, well-known as an odor eater. Purifying the ambient environment and improving the IAQ indoor air quality offer benefits to employees, clients, customers for a sense of well-being and even less sick days.

Whether you are overcoming a disaster of your own doing or trying to separate your business from its distinctly smelly past, professional restoration can help you through every step. When it comes to deodorization and restoration for your business, regardless of the source, SERVPRO of Marlboro / Concord can show you how to reclaim your space. Give our experienced restoration specialists a call 24/7 at (978) 486-9868.

Commercial Odor Removal Experts can Make Your Commercial Setting in Marlborough Like New Again Buildings in the Marlborough Area Rely on SERVPRO for Odor Control and Good Indoor Air Quality

SERVPRO Restores Good Indoor Air Quality with Commercial Odor Control

Circumstances beyond our control can lead to unwelcome developments, including odors that seem to come from nowhere. When your commercial building in Marlborough develops such a problem, knowing that solutions exist can set your mind at ease. Welcoming clients and potential partners to your business can happen more easily when you and your employees feel confident and at ease. An odor permeating your building can prevent that from happening.
 
Marlborough businesses in need of odor removal can get help. SERVPRO specialists include IICRC-certified Odor Control Technicians (OCT) who can combat the odors making your business' atmosphere unpleasant. The cause of such odors helps determine the most appropriate methods.
 
Our methods use the latest in technological advances so you can rest assured that your building's odor problem becomes a thing of the past. We work hard to improve IAQ indoor air quality. Some causes that may exist in your building include vermin in enclosed spaces, smoke from fires or hidden smoking of cigarettes, and cooking odors that permeated into non-kitchen areas. The list goes on with dirty HVAC or furnace systems that caused puff-backs.
 
After we discover and solve the cause of such odor, we can begin eliminating the residual effects left behind. Rodents and other pests leave nests behind, as well as other debris. Raccoon urine latrines require the discarding of tainted insulation. Removing this, then sanitizing the area often removes the source of the offensive odors. However, when liquids permeate into absorbent materials, these may require removal, followed by replacements, to solve the problem.
 
Smoke can deposit tar, from cigarettes, or soot, from the burning of wood, papers, and plastics, which combusted during a fire. Thermal fogging can help in this situation, as its forced fog carries deodorizing agents into the same small crevices that the smoke entered. This method produces excellent results and does not require a building to remain closed for long periods, if at all.
 
Cooking odors, including those from grease fires, require special cleaning agents that remove the grease and soot produced by the fire. When odors travel on air currents to non-related areas, as in a hotel, these areas also require treatment.
 
SERVPRO of Marlboro / Concord can help your business smell as it should once again. Call us at (978) 486-9868 for odor removal services tailored to your exact needs. We are always available to answer your questions, from that first phone call through the completion of the job.

SERVPRO Delivers On Odor Removal For Concord Businesses

Commercial SERVPRO Delivers On Odor Removal For Concord Businesses Call SERVPRO to Eliminate Unpleasant Odors from Your Concord Office

From Eateries to Offices, SERVPRO Eliminates Odors

Any number of different causes can underlie an odor problem for a Concord business. Water and smoke damage after a catastrophic event are obvious reasons, but other sources of unpleasant smells can include mold, decaying organic matter, and even volatile organic compounds from remodeling or planned maintenance. We invest in the training and equipment to solve these smelly challenges.

Odors in a Concord commercial location are unacceptable, especially if your customers or guests notice and it decreases their approval of your business. Our odor removal specialists complete IICRC certification as Odor Control Technicians and then employ a number of strategies to eliminate malodors.
 
Removing debris and thorough cleaning often does the trick. Odor control is almost always one of the final steps in a fire, water, or mold remediation, becoming the focus after cleanup and other restorative tasks fail to eradicate lingering smells. Professionally formulated sprays and treatments that use enzymes work on some smells. Our SERVPRO also invests in innovative equipment such as thermal foggers and hydroxyl generators to neutralize odor-bearing particles at the molecular level if necessary.
 
Understanding how the smell invaded is the key to elimination. If the smell traces to a dead animal discovered in a storage area, the surfaces it infiltrated can need sealing. Smoky smells respond to thermal fogging, as the super-heated delivery of the deodorizer replicated the way the smell spread through the space. Equipment is available to produce neutralizing particles that seek out odiferous airborne or settled and embedded molecules, an exciting and compelling option that manages a broad range of stenches. Our SERVPRO employees are well-versed on the tactics the restoration industry finds to be best practices to deal with hard to eliminate smells.
 
Do-it-yourself remedies a business or a traditional cleaning service might try often result in a short-term effect. The smell can fade, but then return over time or when the indoor environment changes. Cover-ups are not a sustainable answer and can add to the unpleasant odor load and even cause irritation to your customers and employees. SERVPRO odor removal services offer a permanent remedy to this frustrating problem, not just a temporary masking solution.
 
SERVPRO of Marlboro / Concord is ready to get to the root of your odor issues and resolve them. Call (978) 486-9868 for an evaluation and to schedule odor removal treatments that work.

Getting The Odor Out Of Your Marlborough Business

Commercial Getting The Odor Out Of Your Marlborough Business 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.

Marlborough Duct Work Maintenance Avoids Winter Woes

Commercial Marlborough Duct Work Maintenance Avoids Winter Woes Duct Cleaning in Marlborough by SERVPRO Saves You Many and Provides Better Indoor Air Quality

Keep Cool & Warm When SERVPRO Inspects and Cleans HVAC Systems

The duct work in Marlborough homes and businesses is designed to handle changes in temperature, even extreme weather like we have seen over the last couple of years. There are still weak points in every system though, and they are not always easy to see until the seasons change and suddenly the monthly heating or cooling bill skyrockets.

Preparing the duct work in a Marlborough home or business for the winter is not technically challenging, but the task still needs a professional service to ensure the job is completed right the first time. SERVPRO has extensive experience with duct work and HVAC systems in Massachusetts. Proper circulation of air in furnace systems helps reduce the chance of puff backs resulting in messy, costly cleanup. Checking for clean filters, and vacuuming out ducts when needed can also ensure a better quality of indoor air to the structure.

Often, the problems are caused by water from a leak in the roof or along the eaves of the home or commercial building. It can happen over a single season, summer or winter. When water collects on the surface of the ducts, nuts, bolts, and screws can rust. If the water drips down over the brackets, then the damage to the wood beams suspending the conduits can cause the screws or bolts to pull away and shift thanks to the weight of the system.

Moving ducts means they bend and the joints start to twist. Now, the inside air that is supposed to heat your home or business is leaking into the crawlspaces. Our technicians are trained to spot these problems and the potential for them.

The cost of replacement parts is usually cheap. Individual brackets and several handfuls of nuts and bolts only run a few dollars. Depending on the size and extent of the ducts, we can usually finish each job in a day or two. For large, commercial buildings, a full inspection, and repair may take four or five days total.

Our area has not been hit as hard by weather as other parts of the country, and the forecast looks fairly good as well. Now is the perfect opportunity to contact SERVPRO of Marlboro / Concord to prepare your HVAC ducts for the coming winter. If you need our services, call today at (978) 486-9868.

Stabilizing A Concord Warehouse After Water Removal

Commercial Stabilizing A Concord Warehouse After Water Removal 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.

Let The Drying Experts Help When Your Marlborough Business Is Awash In Wet Carpets

7/7/2017 (Permalink)

Commercial Let The Drying Experts Help When Your Marlborough Business Is Awash In Wet Carpets Keep the Red Carpet Dry with SERVPRO's Help

Business As Usual in Marlborough After SERVPRO Dries Wetted Carpets

Even as little as an inch or two of water in a retail or office setting, can soak a vast amount of carpeting. A company’s cleaning or housekeeping staff rarely have the capacity to respond to this degree of water damage, but the carpeting must be dried quickly. SERVPRO offers business owners the tools and technicians to dry out even acres of wet carpeting fast and efficiently.

A pipe burst in the wall you share with an adjoining shop, pouring water throughout your retail area. Wet carpeting extends for thousands of square feet in your Marlborough furniture showroom. You need professional water restoration help immediately, and reaching out to us, and our crews of carpet drying specialists, is the first step to putting this devastation behind you.
 
Even if the subfloor in a mall or shopping center is concrete, a brisk run over with a carpet cleaner is inadequate to manage soaked floor coverings. SERVPRO has industrial strength water extraction and drying equipment designed precisely for the crisis you face. Our technicians receive thorough and up to date training on water extraction techniques that remove the majority of the moisture but also protect the integrity of the carpeting.
 
Furnishings in your showroom must also be protected during the restoration, and prevented from staining or otherwise damaging the carpet. Our team moves through your store systematically, extracting the water and shifting your inventory, so it and the carpet escape further harm. Using foam blocks, foil-backed cardboard squares, or other appropriate aids, SERVPRO crew members keep the wood from bleeding its finish or absorbing moisture, and metal from rusting during the drying recovery period.
 
Chances are good we dry out the carpeting successfully in place. This task requires disengaging the carpeting enough from the subfloor to position air movers and dehumidifiers, directing air floor over and under the carpet. We often replace the padding as it disintegrates easily and adds a layer that impedes the carpeting from drying. Tack strips also must be monitored for retained moisture and may be replaced to avoid strips of dampness after the carpeting is returned and stretched.
 
Because of the risk of secondary harm, such as mold growth or delamination of the carpet from its backing, contact SERVPRO of Marlboro / Concord as soon as possible after retail flooding. A call to (978) 486-9868 sets up an inspection and implementation of a drying plan within hours.

Restoring Areas Impacted by Commercial Water Damage in the Historic Sites of Concord

Commercial Restoring Areas Impacted by Commercial Water Damage in the Historic Sites of Concord Historic Homes in the Concord Area Deserve Water Damage Restoration from SERVPRO

SERVPRO Provides Quality Restoration to Unique Structures Post Water Damage


Maintaining a historic site requires many resources. When something damages or threatens to harm the integrity of such locations, immediate action is required. Sometimes, however, the damage is not truly evident until after it has already occurred.
 
When a historic site in Concord has developed commercial water damage, it is imperative that all signs of the loss be removed. SERVPRO has the know-how to complete any size job, in any setting imaginable, including historical ones that need to be restored to a specific time-period. We know that your site needs to remain authentic, not only for aesthetic reasons, which are relevant to visiting guests but also for continued registry inclusion.
 
Water damage can affect historic buildings and sites in similar ways to modern buildings and homes, and also in ways that are unique to the historic sites that remind our youth of their heritage in a unique, hands-on, tangible manner. Because of the requirements of many sites to remain authentic in areas that are not typically visible, as well as those areas that are, we always stay in close contact with administrators of such places. We want to assure you that we understand that these locations are special, and irreplaceable, to our country.
 
A major aspect of removing water damage is to stop any additional water from entering the site and creating future damage. We can take any contents at the site to a safe and dry location, mitigating or preventing harm to these items.
 
If anything within the contents is already damaged, we can work with you to determine the best course of action for each type. SERVPRO's IICRC certified technicians are trained to clean under unique condtions such as leather items like saddles might need to be cleaned of mold but have any patina left in place, documents and books may need to be dusted off and vacuumed of dust and other debris, and clothing may need to be simply aired out in the sun. However, at all times, we make it a point to listen to our customers about how to proceed.
 
SERVPRO of Marlboro / Concord knows the climate can be harsh in our area, and that it can bring unique challenges to any location when it comes to water damage. Call us at (978) 486-9868, any time, day or night, weekends and holidays included, as we are always available.
