Mold Damage Cleanup for Your Dublin Residence

Have you discovered mold in your home? You might panic at first, especially since mold can create health effects. However, with the right help, you can have a clean, safe home again in a short amount of time.

Professionals best handle mold damage remediation in your Dublin residence. At SERVPRO, we have the training and tools to help you clean up the mold infestation and keep it from coming back to the affected area.

There are five principles for restoring mold-contaminated buildings that SERVPRO techs follow. First, we protect the health of you and our workers. Some safety work practices prevent our staff from exposure as they are disturbing the mold during cleanup. Other practices stop the mold from spreading to areas of your residence that are still clean.

We also record conditions in your home, like the extent of the contamination and how much moisture saturation is present. After remediation is complete, we may have an independent environment professional record that the mold in the structure has returned to normal conditions.

We try to ensure that we keep the mold contamination from getting airborne and spreading to clean rooms of your home. We may place negative air machines during drywall demolition to lower how much airborne mold is circulated. We can set up this process with containment measures like plastic sheeting to further isolate the work area from the clean rooms of your home.

After the fungi have developed large colonies with possible staining, the best solution is to remove the excess contamination. We can do this by taking out the materials which the mold has damaged, by wiping soiled surfaces with a damp cloth and cleaning products, and vacuuming the excess mold spores with into HEPA filters. Controlled tear-outs are the last option since we try to restore and not replace structural elements.

Our SERVPRO crew can fix the moisture source if it is minor. If not, another contractor would be needed to prevent persistent moisture that is an essential step to dealing with mold. The best cleanup and antifungal spraying may not keep the mold from returning if your home still has a moisture problem.

SERVPRO of Cheshire County makes it our goal to leave your home in Jaffrey, Walpole, or Rindge in the state it was before the mold attack, "Like it never even happened." We can thoroughly clean and restore your structure when you give us a call at (603) 352-7251.

Excess Moisture Can Spell Mold Trouble For Your Dublin Home

Mold Remediation Excess Moisture Can Spell Mold Trouble For Your Dublin Home Call us to protect your home from mold damage caused by leaks, drips, and past flooding events.

Extensive Mold Damage Caused By Water Seeping In And Activating Tiny Microbes In Dublin Homes

Every home in the Dublin area holds many different microbes. Some of these can potentially cause health effects while others rarely cause any problems at all. Others only become in need of the homeowner's attention after specific changes occur in the home's environment. A common one is water that appears in locations that should always remain dry. These situations include sudden events like flooding or water leaks and drips along feed lines to appliances.

Either situation can cause significant mold damage in your Dublin home. Not all mold in a home comes from the same strain or variety, either. However, all types of mold require the presence of available water to remain in an active state. Stripping mold of its access to water causes it to revert to a dormant state and discontinue growing. SERVPRO professionals receive training and learn that shutting or sealing off sources of water and preventing mold from gaining future access helps prevent future outbreaks of mold growth.

When we begin the process of remediating mold damage, we remove any water in the area and locate the source so we can eliminate it from the area. We use infrared imaging devices that detect hidden water, so we quickly find it, and we also use moisture meters to determine the amount of moisture contained in walls and other materials. With these instruments, we can accurately determine the situation and provide the homeowner with more information about the situation. Once we complete our remediation work, we check for the presence of water again to ensure that the repairs corrected all sources of water.

Removing the mold through different methods often requires a chamber, which we quickly build. These chambers help produce a negative pressure containment area around the mold damaged section of your home. We may need to build more than one of these when mold appears in several areas within a property. Highly effective at containing dust, debris, and mold that might contaminate other areas, we bag up anything that leaves the chamber in doubled bags. We increase the chamber's effectiveness by using HEPA filters on our air scrubbers and vacuums.

SERVPRO of Cheshire County also provides mold damage remediation services to those in Walpole, Fitzwilliam, and Troy. Call us at (603) 352-7251 to protect your home from mold damage caused by leaks, drips, and past flooding events.

Commercial Find Out How SERVPRO Takes Care of Your Bookstore  After Fire Damage! SERVPRO of Cheshire County is here to take care of your bookstore and restore it "Like it never even happened."

An Electrical Malfunction Can Cause Fire Damage in Your Rindge Bookstore


When fire damage happens inside your establishment, the situation can be very sudden and overwhelming. However, it is important not to let the initial dread that you can feel once the blaze has been put out to control your actions and delay you from contacting help. Emergency services do not end once the fire department leaves your property. In fact, it is imperative for you to get damage remediation professionals to your property as soon as possible.

When the blaze broke out in the storage room of your Rindge bookstore and caused fire damage, it was contained relatively quickly to just one shelved-wall. Most of the books and other merchandise on the shelving unit were destroyed. You might be asking yourself why you should hurry and get professional remediation services to your property if most of the merchandise in the area is unsalvageable?

Fire damage causes smoke and soot to bellow and spread throughout the immediate area. The longer that soot lingers on the walls, shelves, door, and flooring, the more likely it is to cause discoloration. The faster that a remediation company, like SERVPRO, can arrive at your store, the more likely it is that the job can go smoothly.

When SERVPRO arrives at your business, we can immediately begin to sort through your storage room whenever it is best for your time. We work on your schedule, and we can stay out of sight from your customers. We understand how vital foot traffic is to your business.

We can unbox merchandise and repackage it in new boxes that are not covered in greasy soot. Once we remove the merchandise, we can throw away any ruined materials and then begin the process of eliminating the soot stains from the walls, shelves, ceiling, and floor.

SERVPRO can use the spray-and-wipe method in conjunction with a lubricant-based solution in order to gently remove the grime from the various surfaces of your storage room. Furthermore, to address the foul odor that fires leave behind, SERVPRO can employ the use of a thermal fogger to neutralize the very particles that cause the scent in the first place. At SERVPRO, our ultimate goal is always to leave you feeling "Like it never even happened."

Locally Owned Company with National Resources


You should never hesitate once the fire on your property has been extinguished to follow up with the next step. Phone SERVPRO of Cheshire County by dialing (603) 352-7251. Our doors are always open to help you.

What Goes Into Our Restoration Process For Your Flood Damaged Dublin Home

Storm Damage What Goes Into Our Restoration Process For Your Flood Damaged Dublin Home In case your property floods, calling SERVPRO of Cheshire County helps ensure proper restoration.

What You Need To Fix After Flood Damage In Dublin

Flooding damages Dublin properties in many unique ways depending on how the incidents unfold. Restoration can, therefore, mean different things. If winds push debris and puncture a hole on the roof or another part of the structure allowing rainwater to flood the property, the restoration processes would differ slightly from a case of flooding from rising water. Because of our IICRC certification and experience restoring properties, we understand the main problem areas, and how best to deal with them.

Identifying the level of moisture migration is crucial when restoring flood damage in Dublin because excess moisture affects everything from the structure to the contents in the property negatively. Whatever material is in the loss area whether it is concrete, wood, upholstery or metal among others deteriorates when a property floods. Luckily, it is easy to forestall most of the effects by limiting exposure time. Our SERVPRO team identifies the level of moisture migration using advanced tools like FLIR thermal cameras, moisture sensors, and meters, which help determine the extraction and drying equipment to use for fast results.

Removing debris, soiling, and contamination is also essential. The level of cleaning depends on the source of water. Flooding involving rising water dumps the most soils and contaminants including raw sewage into the property. Proper cleanup includes removal of porous materials affected by the floodwaters. Our SERVPRO crew is fully equipped to remove carpets, particleboards, insulation and any other porous materials affected by the water. We also have pressure washers to clean non-porous materials effectively. We spray EPA-registered disinfectants in the affected areas neutralizing contaminants.

Restoring flood damage involves teardown, whether it is to ease cleanup, or to help with moisture control. Doing such teardown requires skills to avoid causing unnecessary damages that exaggerate cost. Our SERVPRO crew performs a flood cut two feet above the water line. We also have the necessary tools to remove baseboards, door frames and other parts of the structure without ruining them. When the property is clean and dry, we can put everything back together nicely “Like it never even happened.”

In case your property floods, calling SERVPRO of Cheshire County helps ensure proper restoration. You can reach us at (603) 352-7251 any time.

Storm Damage Our Highly Trained Professionals Can Save Your Home And Belongings After A Flood In Walpole Flood damage in the Walpole area can destroy your mattress and other items in your home.

Should You Save Your Mattress After A Flood Damage In The Walpole Area?

Rainstorm or any bad weather can ruin your plans. The worst part is that mother nature can get out of control, and bring a tremendous amount of water leading to a flood that can ruin your property and belongings. One of your most valuable items is your mattress.

Flood damage in the Walpole area can destroy your mattress and other items in your home. You might be wondering if it's worth restoring it or if you should discard it. Before you spend hours fixing a water damaged mattress or even hiring a company to dry it, here are some things to consider. If this is a cheaper or older mattress, then you are better off getting a new one. If the mattress contains material like foam, rubber, or cotton, then you should get rid of it because mold and mildew can grow inside of the mattress where it can be difficult to clean. If the mattress contains springs, then there is a big chance that it might survive the aftermath of the flood. After all, the spring material allows for adequate airflow. Unfortunately, in the aftermath of a flood, it is best to discard the mattress because flood water contains a lot of contaminants from the sewage system and other components.

Luckily, the SERVPRO technicians are experts when it comes to flood damage. They can inspect your belongings to see if anything is salvageable. The SERVPRO tech can utilize advanced technology and process such as the mitigation procedures and high tech vacuum system to get rid of excess water from your establishment. They can inspect your place to search for hidden water as well as getting rid of unsalvageable items and mattresses. It is essential to let these experts check your belongings before determining if you can keep it or not.

Do You Know What to Ask When Your Dublin Home is Facing a Water Damage Emergency

10/7/2018 (Permalink)

Water Damage Do You Know What to Ask When Your Dublin Home is Facing a Water Damage Emergency Regardless of whether the water came from an inside or outside source, drying out your property is our top priority. Call SERVPRO right away.

Five FAQs Dublin Residents Ask About Water Removal

As a Dublin resident faced with water damage, knowing more about the causes, what to do, how to overcome the problems and many more can help avert the crisis. To help you with these, here are the top five FAQs commercial property and homeowners have about water removal.

What are the causes of water damage?
As water removal experts in Dublin, we have identified the following causes of water damage: pipe leak, pipe burst, faulty appliance or leaking roof. If you are a commercial property owner, water can also infiltrate your business. Causes include poor drainage, roof leaks, appliance malfunction or pipe bursts.

What are the effects of water infiltration?
When water comes into contact with your walls and floor, absorption occurs making the structure damp. This promotes mold growth. If left unchecked, a colony of mold grows behind the wall. If your home has hardwood floors, they are likely to warp and buckle too. Also, your carpets are likely to delaminate due to the water.

What should I do if water infiltrates my home or business?
The first step is to contact your insurance adjuster. Next, take a few pictures which act as evidence and present them to the insurance adjuster. Do not attempt to remove or move anything. Finally, call our water removal specialists.

Should I attempt to remove the water?
Mopping up a small puddle of water made by your faulty appliance or leaky pipe is okay. If the problem is extensive, leave it to SERVPRO water removal experts. As a property owner, you lack hygrometers and other equipment to detect moisture in your walls, floors, and ceiling. Also, you lack the knowledge our experts have to detect the source of the problem and presence of mold.

Should I move out of my home or close my business during water restoration?
Yes, we recommend you move or close your business until your property is dry and safe. Doing so also eliminates the chances of coming into contact with the water and mold. That is not all. The equipment we use can be noisy as it dries your home or business.

SERVPRO of Cheshire County water removal technicians are at your beck and call. We respond fast to any water emergency and help avert further damage to your home or business. Also, we use advanced water removal and drying equipment to restore your home back to its pre-water damaged state. If you have more questions, call our 24/7 emergency line at (603) 352-7251.
