Remediating Commercial Flood Damage In Jaffrey

9/17/2018 (Permalink)

Commercial Remediating Commercial Flood Damage In Jaffrey Regardless of the source, Jaffrey commercial flood damage can result in tens of thousands of dollars in cleanup and restoration costs.

Remediating Commercial Flood Damage

The weather around Jaffrey has been usually severe this last year, but many businesses still found many of their flood problems came from plumbing issues like a broken pipe connection or a failed appliance such as a water heater with a rusted out bottom.

Regardless of the source, Jaffrey commercial flood damage can result in tens of thousands of dollars in cleanup and restoration costs. SERVPRO teams respond quickly to remove water, dry property, and either restore or replace damaged items.

First, we find and stop the source of the water. If this was not outside water brought in by storm flooding, we need to stop the leak or rupture. A technician turns off the water main while an inspector finds the leak. Once he finds it, team members block the flow so water can be turned back on for the rest of the facility. That is particularly important for small businesses like a bed-and-breakfast operation.

We can perform minor repairs and even replace broken connections and short sections of pipe. For a major plumbing problem, SERVPRO team leaders recommend the business owner bring in a plumber or general contractor to fix it.

Now, our specialists bring in pumps and extraction wands to remove any standing water. Both devices operate swiftly, and the wands can also begin drawing water out of carpets. The quicker we can draw water out, the more property we can dry and restore instead of remove and replace it.

With the water gone, technicians set up a combination of dehumidifiers, air movers, and fans to reduce the humidity and dry property. Each humidifier can draw out up to 25 gallons of water from the air and surrounding property every 24 hours.

The action augments the air movers, which we use to force warm, dry air across damp surfaces like drywall panels to carefully restore them before the moisture they absorbed causes them to crumble in place, forcing replacement. As the air movers operate, we set up the fans to increase air circulation and draw the damp, inside air to the outside of the business.

For SERVPRO of Cheshire County, our task is to help you reopen your doors as quickly as possible. If you need us, call (603) 352-7251 at any time to schedule a visit. We are here for you.

Slight Commercial Fire Damage can Severely Affect Rindge Area Bed and Breakfast Establishments

6/13/2018 (Permalink)

Commercial Slight Commercial Fire Damage can Severely Affect Rindge Area Bed and Breakfast Establishments Several methods to remove soot damage are evaluated by our crew to determine the best solution for your fire damaged building.

Removing Fire damage from your business

A small snafu with an overturned candle or a frying pan that got too hot and caught on fire can both cause larger areas of your bed and breakfast home business in Rindge to suffer from bad odors. These odors, depending on what caught on fire, can range from mild and barely noticeable to extreme and heavy smells that make the area unbearable. Any unpleasant smells can cause a decline in your profits, as well as your good reputation.

Small businesses in Rindge with commercial fire damage often find it quite easy to restore the building's physical damage, as its visibility makes repairs seem more critical. Once things look perfect again, unexpected odors make themselves known. Certified by the IICRC, SERVPRO's restoration technicians understand that odors remain behind unless we carry out the necessary treatments to rid your business of all of the odor-causing particles.

Removing damaged materials and cleaning up the visible soot merely reduces the amount of odor occupants experience. Painting specific areas with a smoke-killing paint product helps immensely, but this only works for the specific area covered with a fresh coat. A significant portion of the soot that causes odors exist in other places where even the best equipment cannot mechanically reach and remove to prevent the production of malodors.

Once we eliminate the oily soot and greasy residues from the surfaces inside your bed and breakfast, thermal fogging conducted by our Odor Control Technician (OCT) forces the fog into the same locations the fire pushed the smoke. The heated steam carries odor-neutralizing agents which bond at the molecular level with soot and smoke debris on contact. Afterward, your business smells like it should again, "Like it never even happened."

SERVPRO of Cheshire County serves small businesses in the Dublin and Chesterfield areas, making fire damage a past disaster that no longer affects their daily operations. Contact us at our 24-hour emergency service line, (603) 352-7251, for the assistance you need to restore your business. Also, our employees are always available to assist you in making a READY Plan for your business. Doing so can save valuable time in responding to this and many other disasters that can cause extensive harm.

SERVPRO's ERP Emergency READY Profile Plan Helps Prevent and Mitigate Water Damage


When you own a business in Dublin, planning is essential. As many as 50% of businesses may not recover from an unforeseen disaster; the ones that survive usually have a preparedness plan intact.

An Emergency READY Profile Plan places you a step ahead if damage takes place; you may even be able to avert the incident from ever occurring.

First, our SERVPRO representative comes in and gives you a no-cost inspection and assessment of your facilities. Our SMR records any critical information we would need if a problem occurs. We then prepare a concise profile document that contains only the crucial information needed in case of an emergency. This package also offers a mobile app to guarantee access is at your fingertips.

Commercial Water Damage in Your Dublin Restaurant

SERVPRO Strives to Extract Water and Mitigate Damages to Your Eatery

The plumbing system in your busy Dublin restaurant puts up with much use. When many people are filtering in and out of bathrooms all the time, it is essential that you keep up with plumbing repairs and maintenance. Not only can plumbing problems like sewer backups and broken pipes cause water damage to your building, but also inconveniences and potential health hazards for your customers and employees.
 
Therefore, it is a good idea to have the plumbing system for your business maintained and regularly inspected. When a disaster or just a leak does strike, you could have plenty of commercial water damage to your Dublin restaurant to clean up. You want to do this quickly so your restaurant can be back up and running quickly, and to reduce revenue loss. That is where our staff at SERVPRO can help.
 
We understand time is of the essence in these situations, so we do not waste any time getting to your building to help you. Once we have removed any standing water, something we need to pay particular attention to is the flooring. In the case of ceramic tile, the tiles and grout joints are water resistant when they are installed over plywood. However, any cracks make the tile and underlying subfloor vulnerable to water damage.
 
Many times, the tile is unaffected, but water can penetrate the grouting, which causes the subfloor to warp or expand. Because of this, the tiles break apart at the joints and come loose. The tiles have to be reinstalled once the subfloor is dried and restored or repaired. It might be necessary to dry the floor from the bottom or to drill holes into the floor so we can adequately monitor the drying process. To check for moisture under ceramic tiles, SERVPRO technicians use a non-penetrating meter.
 
SERVPRO of Cheshire County wants to get your eatery in Walpole, Fitzwilliam, or Swanzey open for business as quickly as possible, but we also take care to dry everything thoroughly that was affected in the water emergency. By dialing (603) 352-7251, you can be helped by professionals.

Lingering Effects From A Small Fire In Your Jaffrey Bank

Commercial Lingering Effects From A Small Fire In Your Jaffrey Bank Don't Burn Up Your Bank Inventory in Jaffrey, Call SERVPRO for Fire Damage Cleanup and Restoration

Call SERVPRO for Fire Damage Restoration

Electrical fires can happen at a moment's notice and without giving off much of a warning. When it comes to professional establishments like the Jaffrey bank you manage, even a small electrical fire that sparks could lead to a high-stress situation. While your primary concerns rest with the sensitive information and money that you have on site, lingering effects from the fire can make it difficult for you to conduct routine business.  
 
When you are recovering from fire damage to your Jaffrey bank, getting things restored quickly is very critical to your overall business model. As a bank, you can always get assured that people are going to come into your establishment on a regular basis regardless if they have new business or not, but having your doors open is an overall statement of the dependability of your brand and convenience to your customers who bank regularly with you.  
 
While the extinguishing efforts were minuscule for a small electrical fire to your building, there are lingering effects which make it difficult for the employees and clients to want to be around. The odor is usually one of these lasting effects that make it hard to run a business, but SERVPRO has the tools and expertise to handle this symptom quickly and efficiently.  
 
With the use of a dense fogging machine, our SERVPRO technicians release a chemical compound onto the materials, surfaces, and air in the affected area where the fire occurred. The chemical itself is odorless, and when it interacts with noxious scent molecules present in the area, it neutralizes these molecules. Then a pleasant scent can be sprayed to enhance the ambiance and indoor air quality.

Smoke and soot damage might not be excessive in a localized electrical fire, but cleaning the area gives your building back its presentable appearance. Depending on the severity of the damages and its thickness, our technicians utilize scrubbers that run with a wet solution or dry to remove this film from the surfaces in the region of the fire.  
 
Your bank is a staple of the community that gets used every day that you are open, and it is because of this that you should seek out the professional assistance of our SERVPRO of Cheshire County team whenever you are facing an emergency situation like this. You can reach our certified restoration specialists anytime by calling (603) 352-7251.

How We Remove Water From Dublin Offices After Sprinklers Flood The Building

11/13/2017 (Permalink)

Commercial How We Remove Water From Dublin Offices After Sprinklers Flood The Building While sprinklers are an indispensable resource in your office's fight against future and potential fires, they can also cause significant damage.

Water Removal In Offices

While sprinklers are an indispensable resource in your office's fight against future and potential fires, they can also cause significant damage in their own right. Sprinklers can soak and flood an area or perhaps even the entire building, and may not halt their deluge even after the fire has been put out. Our water removal services for Dublin offices helps to both remove signs of damage from the building and keep sensitive items and documents safe. Here are a few steps we usually have to take to reverse damage from sprinklers in any commercial office.

Document And Item Recovery
Water removal for offices in Dublin typically involves the recovery and restoration of many varieties of items. Paper products, furniture, decorative features, and sensitive electronics are all common victims of water damage that require a professional touch to salvage. We combine the efforts of specialized contractors and our own well-trained and certified technicians to recover as much as possible and avoid costly replacements.

Water Extraction
In many cases, the sprinklers may continue to spill water for so long that we must bring in water extractors to pump out entire rooms or buildings at a time. Usually, we only need to use portable and lightweight extractors, but we also have access to bulkier truck-mounted variants if they are needed. Quick removal of standing water is essential to prevent mold damage from developing and to minimize direct impact from the water.

Complete Drying
To finish up our water removal efforts, we use air movers to accelerate natural air drying processes and whisk water droplets into the air. However, this also drastically raises relative humidity, so we use thermal and chemical dehumidifiers to collect moisture and transport it out of the building. Once this task is done, we can move on to damage restoration and repair efforts.

SERVPRO of Cheshire County is a locally owned franchise with national certifications and resources to provide your business with the best care possible after a disaster. Call us 24/7 at (603) 352-7251.

Recurring Odor Issues After any Type of Commercial Fire Damage in Keene Hotels

7/31/2017 (Permalink)

Commercial Recurring Odor Issues After any Type of Commercial Fire Damage in Keene Hotels Hotel rooms need to be free of unpleasant smells. If you have a fire or water damage event, contact SERVPRO to remove any lingering odors.

SERVPRO Technicians Focus on Remediating Fire Damage Including the Lingering Smell of Smoke

Hotel guests come from all different ethnic backgrounds and geographic locations and have specific reasons for traveling. Meeting hotel guests' needs and expectations include the normal situations as well as those that are highly unique. One that plagues hotel managers is complaints based on opinion, such as how a room smells.
 
Residents, tourists, and business executives who visit hotels in Keene can often detect smoke odors caused by past commercial fire damage. Any smoky-like odor can be highly disturbing to sensitive individuals. The root of an ongoing and steadily lingering odor can often be discovered quickly by SERVPRO professionals. Not all fire damage must be created by out-of-control blazes, and sometimes, guests fail to advise hotel staff of small fires that have happened. If a fire involved only removable items, the scent could still permeate walls, carpets, and draperies.
 
Depending on the odor's source, our technicians, relying on their IICRC training, can do one or more of several techniques that are long-lasting and quite effective. When carpeting is the source, injections into the carpet's pad with deodorizing liquid can be a highly effective solution. If fire damage has created a stench to envelop the walls, we can repaint them so they are resealed and fresh again. Draperies and upholstered items can be successfully cleaned at your hotel or our site, removing any unpleasant odors and imbued with a fresh scent again.
 
If guests complain to your staff about such situations, making sure that the problem is resolved can help prevent negative feedback posted online from adversely affecting future reservations. Showing a readiness, in addition to a willingness, to make things right for guests and to ensure their comfort can help your hotel's image. Guests in this type of situation are likely to be relieved that you are willing to do something, and possibly more prone to give your hotel and staff glowing feedback. Even if this is only on their social media profile, what they write can help many future guests decide to reserve a room at your hotel. This applies to fire damage-related issues and everything else that affects the quality of their experience.
 
SERVPRO of Cheshire County wants to help make your hotel as pleasant as it possibly can be for your hotel guests. If fire damage of any size has left behind unpleasant smells that are negatively affecting your guests, call us at (603) 352-7251. Our office is open 24/7, and we can help right away.
