Does My Laconia Factory Need Mold Removal?

9/3/2020 (Permalink)

blank conveyors on a blurred factory background Your business needs to run smoothly and has no time for mold. Contact our team for effective mold removal services.

Laconia Business Owners Are Looking For Reliable Mold Removal

Anyone who owns a factory in Laconia knows that looking after such large buildings can be a challenge. From damaged roofs to structural problems and even flooding, many things can pose a challenge for factory owners.

Mold removal in Laconia is another challenge facing local factories. Does your factory need mold removal?

What is mold?

To understand the impact of mold on your factory, let us begin with the basics – what is mold?

Mold means fungi that grow together in hyphae – a type of cellular thread-like structure that joins all the spores together. Mold is a naturally occurring growth, which is most commonly seen on spoiled food or growing in patches in damp buildings.

Mold can grow anywhere that has moisture, food, and oxygen. Fungi can grow on:

  • Foodstuffs such as cheese and bread
  • The surface of damp smooth materials such as around taps or on shower curtains
  • On wallpaper or in the grout between ceramic tiles
  • Building materials such as wood and drywall
  • Fabrics such as leather, cotton, clothes, drapes, and carpets

Where might mold grow in my factory?

Most factories do not have much in the way of office furniture. However, mold can grow on walls, floors, ceilings, wood, drywall, and windows and doors. If a factory building is damp, it can provide a ripe breeding ground for spores.

Mold smells and looks unpleasant and can have health effects. If left untreated, it can spread further and grow on more surfaces. That is why SERVPRO recommends calling a mold removal team as soon as possible.

Are there any particular species of mold to look for?

It is not especially important to know which species of mold are present. SERVPRO trains our teams to handle any commercial mold infestation in Laconia. However, some of the species most likely to grow in a factory include:

  • Stachybotrys chartarum – when people think of mold they are usually thinking of this black mold whose growth is easily spotted
  • Chaetomium grows in drywall that has suffered water damage and causes a musty smell around your factory
  • Aureobasidium grows on wood and materials such as painted walls or wallpaper and has a pinkish black spotty appearance

Visible patches of green, black, or brown spores or slime are clear signs that your factory has mold. However, SERVPRO of The Lakes Region urges you to be aware of other signs of mold. These include damp patches on walls or ceilings and a musty odor.

If you suspect mold growth in your commercial premises, give SERVPRO a call as soon as possible. We train our technicians to handle any mold situation, and we’re Faster To Any Size Disaster.

Can SERVPRO rid my factory of mold?

No – mold is a naturally occurring substance, and it is not possible to completely eradicate it. Please be wary of any company that promises total mold removal.

However, do not worry – there are many steps we can take to remediate your mold problem. Our teams can clean mold from surfaces, deep clean porous surfaces, use negative air filtration to remove mold from the air, and thoroughly dry your factory to discourage further growth.

What is the mold removal process?

The first step in mold removal is an assessment of the situation. We liaise with you to let you know our findings and our proposed plan of action – nothing will happen to your business premises without your say-so.

Next, we set up containment to keep the spore outbreak in one place and discourage spores from spreading further into your business. We also use negative air filtration to pull microscopic mold from the air and vent it outside your premises.

We remove any mold-infested materials that we cannot salvage.

Once the mold is contained, we set to work scrubbing and cleaning every mold-infested surface to remove as many spores as possible.

If your factory needs repairs such as replacing drywall or removing and replacing damaged brickwork, our team is on hand to carry out the restoration.

We also take care of odor removal, so you do not have to worry about lingering musty smells.

Should I make a disaster plan in advance?

You cannot predict when a disaster will happen in your business, including a mold infestation. That is why we recommend the SERVPRO Emergency Ready Plan (ERP). ERP is a popular tool for preparing for fire or flood, but it is also useful for mold. Simply download the app, set up your free account on a PC, and follow the on-screen prompts.

You will carry out a walkthrough of your business and take note of details such as water shutoff points and emergency contact details. You can also add us as a contact for remediation, and put in your insurance details. ERP means that if you spot mold, you can take action quickly.

Handling water loss incidents quickly and confidently can make a positive impression with your guests and promptly remove any possible hazards.

What Can Standing Water Do to My Building? 

In many ways, property owners do not recognize how unsafe standing water and pooling can be for affected areas. Surface water can penetrate exposed materials, fabrics, flooring, and other contents.

How Can I Speed Up Water Cleanup in My Warehouse?

6/1/2020 (Permalink)

A warehouse with standing water and a person in a doorway. When it comes to your Laconia business, water damage can take over. Let SERVPRO help.

SERVPRO Handles Water Cleanup with Prompt Action to Restore Your Laconia Commercial Space

A significant water spill or leak inside your Laconia commercial building can saturate materials and many items. Whether you had a plumbing problem or another water incident, you need to know that even the smallest amount of water has to get cleaned up before it turns into a much larger problem. Even with DIY cleanup, you could leave behind moisture that begins to deteriorate building materials or pose a threat from harmful mildew and mold growth.

Can My Staff Start the Cleanup Process?

For a large-scale commercial water cleanup project in Laconia, hiring trained water restoration technicians (WRT) gets you the prompt results you need. SERVPRO is your answer when you need water removal to bring your warehouse or storage facility back to preloss condition. These are a few critical questions that you must ask yourself before attempting DIY cleanup:

  •   Do you see water seeping under cabinetry or wallboards throughout the space?
  •   Is it possible water seeped underneath areas with flooring, such as an office?
  •   Could sewage or chemicals be in the water that must be removed?
  •   Is there damaged roofing, windows, or a skylight that is part of the cause of the water loss?
  •   Is there any indication that sheetrock throughout your commercial building is wet or buckling?

If you answered yes to one or more of these questions, it is better to call our IICRC-certified technicians to assist you with the prompt water cleanup you need. We are available 24/7 for emergency service, and a crew arrives at your Laconia business in as little as four hours or less. Once we arrive, we spring into action to assess the water loss zone so that we can implement our specialized process to get the water cleaned up before drying begins.

If Water Has Moved into Other Areas, How Can I Tell?

Water migrates quickly to dry areas while following the path of least resistance. Our trained water restoration technicians (WRT) know exactly where to look to find hidden moisture to eradicate it before it brings about secondary damage. The trucks in our Green Fleet come loaded with professional-grade equipment powerful enough to pull up copious amounts of water from your commercial building. We also have the latest in moisture detection technology to find hidden moisture pockets without the need for the total removal of walls and other building materials.

What Tools Does SERVPRO Use for Water Removal?

If the water loss incident in your building is smaller in scale, our team may be able to use industrial fans and wet/dry vacuums. However, if the loss is more significant or the water has been standing for an extended period, more involved measures are necessary. We utilize a broad range of advanced technology that allow us to execute water extraction in a fraction of the time of DIY methods, such as:

  •   Submersible pumps whenever the water inside your building is two inches deep or more.
  •   Powerful truck-mount extraction tools capable of removing hundreds to thousands of gallons of water (including debris) efficiently.
  •   Mops and squeegees to shorten water cleanup time.
  •   Industrial fans and centrifugal air movers to maintain airflow.
  •   Desiccant dehumidifiers that bring down the level of relative humidity in the air.

Can You Take Care of Water that Came from an Overflowing Toilet?

Blackwater that comes from an overflowing toilet is foul-smelling and messy, but it should also be cleaned up by professionals using the right safety protocols. Before we arrive at your building, if toilet water is present, you should try to close off all foot traffic to the area. Rags or towels may also be put down to absorb the water and keep it from migrating. However, mopping should be avoided as this can start to spread the contaminated water.

After our crew arrives, we assess the loss and test water so that we can accurately identify the level of pathogens and bacteria present. From there, we choose the best anti-bacterial and anti-microbial treatments. Our team always wears full personal protective gear to keep us safe from harmful airborne moisture droplets, including respiration equipment. Throughout the cleanup, we also use air scrubbers that trap airborne contaminants while improving air quality.

How Long Will the Cleanup Take?

The length of time for any water cleanup projects depends on a number of factors, including:

  •   The scope of the water loss zone
  •   The amount of water that must be cleaned up
  •   The types of materials that have been saturated
  •   The number of contents that must be packed out for proper drying and cleaning
  •   Special circumstances that may call for controlled demolition efforts to replace unsalvageable materials

Whether you have a big or small water cleanup project for us, the team at SERVPRO of The Lakes Region is here to help. Call (603) 527-2518 to have a crew deployed to your business for an assessment.

What Can I Do When Fire Damage Threatens the Bottom Line of My Laconia Business?

4/12/2020 (Permalink)

fire causing damage Contact SERVPRO of the Lakes Region at (603) 527-2518 to see how we can help your business.

Laconia Business Owners Often Reach Out to SERVPRO to Restore Their Commercial Site—We Can Help You

A property manager may require emergency fire restoration services at any point of the year. Restaurants, cafes, or other food outlets are among the most popular businesses to suffer from fire damage in Laconia. However, lighting, electronics malfunctions as well as wiring issues can also lead to a fire loss scenario.

What do fire restoration services cover?
The fire department can extinguish the initial flames and contain the damages. But it is fire restorers that can help get your business back to its preloss condition by performing the cleanup, debris removal, fire restoration, and smoke or odor control. Our company has a litany of experience working with Lakes Region businesses and helping them get back on their feet with a minimum loss of revenue.

What Aspects of Restoration does your service cover?

    •    Fire Cleanup
    •    Debris Removal
    •    Cleaning
    •    Smoke odor control

When can we get to work?
After the fire department extinguishes a commercial property fire in Laconia, you should wait to receive an all-clear from fire marshall before entering the property. In high temperatures, many noxious gases, as well as chemicals, release into the surrounding atmosphere. These can be harmful to ingest, while monoxides and other fire gases can be exceptionally dangerous to your health. These gases usually disperse shortly after the event, but what is left behind is significant blackening, soot deposits, and smoke residues.

How can we prevent further losses occurring during emergency mitigation services?
In cleaning up a fire in your business, one method SERVPRO use is to light dry vacuum soils and soots. Dry and wet soots differ in their relationship to the surface. Some soot bond with the surface and become challenging to remove. By removing any surface-level soots, we can ensure that wet cleaning or sponging does not push loose soots into surfaces and cause further harm. Stubborn soots often respond to chemical action or, in severe cases, cutting techniques like sandblasting, which remove both soot and surface layers altogether.

What are restorable contents?
Fire loss scenarios are categorizable by salvageable and non-salvageable goods. Our restorers have to navigate a tricky equation when making choices about commercial contents. Being able to delineate between is restorable, and what is not is a fundamental part. But equally, the cost of restoration, as well as the time frame, are considerations. A commercial storage warehouse, for example, may require restoration of items of storage. Equally, a retail store may need to scrape large amounts of stock since the costs and timeframe of restoration may be too lengthy.

How do we dispose of non-restorable contents?
The job of commercial fire debris removal here in Laconia requires an intimate knowledge of restoration principals and technology. We operate with national-scale infrastructure, which allows our restorers to use technologies like Esporta washing, Ultrasonic contents cleaning as well as in-house dry cleaning. We are also capable of mobilizing skips and significant transits to transport non-salvageable waste from your business. Our mantra is to restore rather than replace items wherever possible to the benefit of the businesses that we work within this community.

Is fire debris toxic?
Fire debris can often be toxic or have a specific set of disposal guidelines. Our fire restoration technicians are well-versed in the different types of materials and the disposal they require. We can offer sizable human resources for small businesses as well as much more extensive operations. At SERVPRO, we understand how temporary closure can influence your bottom-line, working quickly, and efficiently to ensure the loss of revenues is minimal.

How can we help you with structural cleaning?
Property managers need to provide safe, secure, and sanitary conditions for their workforce at all times. Often a property management disaster like a fire can throw up challenges for both the business and the workforce. Frequently these challenges are beyond the scope of your employees to fix, and you may need to bring in professional restoration services. Businesses at particular risk of fire, such as factories and food outlets, should make sure that their insurance program covers sudden emergencies.

What can we do to get rid of unpleasant odors?
Nothing turns customers away more than unpleasant odors. Combusting materials release various gases into the surrounding area. In an enclosed area, like commercial property, these odors are likely to get trapped and require professional odor removal. All odors dissipate naturally over time, but for many businesses, these timescales may affect revenues or their reputation.

Odor control frequently relies on rapid air-exchanges. Even when using water-based deodorants, odor control technicians need to exchange indoor and outdoor air up to fifty times before it is safe for the business to re-open. We can mobilize and deploy industrial vent box fans, which can help to perform the necessary air exchange. Where natural ventilation may be tight, we can use large exterior dehumidifiers or air scrubbers to ventilate the area effectively.

What devices do we use for odor control?

    •    Air scrubbing
    •    ULV Fogging
    •    Misting
    •    Odor Control Pellets
    •    Box Fans and Venting Equipment

The impacts fire can have on your business are manifold, and you need a restoration service with the human resources, equipment, and experience to perform a timely restoration. Contact SERVPRO of the Lakes Region at (603) 527-2518 to see how we can help your business.

Eliminate Commercial Water Damage In Laconia

Appliance Store SERVPRO of The Lakes Region aids businesses with mitigation response that is Faster to Any Size Disaster.

SERVPRO Eliminates Commercial Water Damage From a Laconia Appliance Store

Large retail spaces are easy to pack with beautiful show areas for your products and services. However, when water damage occurs, these displays can also prove to be vulnerable to saturation and damage that can be difficult to mitigate with the tools you currently have available. Fortunately, there is a team that can help.

If your Laconia retail space has suffered commercial water damage from pipe leaks, appliance issues, or structural damages, SERVPRO technicians are ready to clean the mess and restore your facilities to their preloss condition. This team's focus is on using cutting-edge tools to monitor affected spaces and carefully restore them so that you can minimize replacement costs while maximizing the safety of your business. SERVPRO is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week to assist you.

Cleaning Your Ceiling Tiles
Plumbing or HVAC failures can often cause ceiling tile leaks that not only damage tiles but also saturate surfaces below. Cleaning keeps your storefront looking bright and clean and allows you to inspect the ceiling for potential water damage.

    •    Take care to cover or move inventory below the tiles and remove tiles from the ceiling grid to clean them.
    •    Vacuum vents, corners, and near light fixtures if possible. A dusting attachment is especially helpful for this job.
    •    Wash the tiles with a solution of 10 parts water and one part dishwashing soap. Swab them with a wet sweeper. Avoid over-wetting the tiles, which can warp and damage them.

SERVPRO's Drying Process
SERVPRO technicians use centrifugal air movers and commercial grade dehumidifiers to address water damage. Air movers require careful placement and calculation, typically one every 150 to 300 square feet of affected surface area, to pull up moisture from surfaces effectively. Dehumidifiers catch this air and isolate the water using a variety of mechanisms, such as silica gel or refrigerant coils, depending on the material. This condensation can then be collected and safely removed from your property while the dehumidifiers put out warm, dry air.

SERVPRO of The Lakes Region aids businesses with mitigation response that is Faster to Any Size Disaster. When disaster strikes in your commercial facilities, you can call (603) 527-2518 for rapid cleanup that can begin in as little as four hours.

We Can Save Flood Damaged Carpeting In Belmont

wet carpeting after storm Let our qualified SERVPRO of the Lakes Region team help you however you need.

In-Place Drying of Flooded Carpeting in Your Belmont Showroom

Your Belmont mattress store must keep up a polished appearance to show your potential customers that they are making a wise decision with your business for their bedding. Because of how vital it is to stay open after the holidays for those looking to upgrade their bedrooms following Christmas and even into the early spring, the expected severe weather events and potential flooding could threaten your availability to your customers and their needs.

As with all water loss incidents, the faster that you address flood damage in your Belmont store, the less time consuming and costly that recovery ends up being. With carpeting stretching from wall to wall in your sprawling showroom, how you approach the drying and restoration of affected carpeting can determine how long restoration ultimately takes. In-place drying techniques can be advantageous to business owners looking to get back to normal operations as promptly as possible when floodwater has no potential contamination risks.

In-place drying of carpets can only work if the pad beneath the carpet has not remained directly exposed to water damages for more than three days. If 72 hours have passed and moisture persists, then it is best to remove the padding under the carpet at a minimum. If the padding must get removed, an inspection of the subflooring material must also occur – any warping or bowing of these joists or supports can indicate more work that is required. In many situations, in-place drying can save your business money, despite the time spent moving bed frames with mattresses to unaffected areas of your showroom.

Floating carpet can be another method of drying out both the carpet and the lightly saturated padding. We can detach corners of the carpet to vent the air mover blasting to prevent the stretching of your carpet. When moisture indicators and detection devices relay that the material is dry, we can reinstall the detached portions of carpet, and focus on any final cleaning tasks that must occur to make this loss incident “Like it never even happened.”

No matter how severe flood loss incidents can initially seem, We’re Faster to Any Size Disaster. Let our qualified SERVPRO of the Lakes Region team help you however you need. Call us today at (603) 527-2518.

Why Heat Management Is Vital During The Water Damage Restoration Process In Belmont

10/23/2019 (Permalink)

office suffering from water damage “Like it never even happened.”

How Heat Management Helps During Commercial Water Removal Situations in Belmont Offices

Different resources are crucial for efficient water removal. Lift capacity is the principal resource without which, removal of standing water can be a tall order. Once liquid water is exhausted, lift capacity is not very useful in eliminating the moisture left in materials or contents. In an office setting, you might have wet carpets, drywall, ceiling panels, and even document. Various processes can help deal with moisture during commercial water removal, but regulation of heat plays a crucial role.

It is common to use heat generally for drying, but during commercial water removal situations in Belmont offices, temperature regulation can address various specific issues such as;

    •    Preventing Rusting in Electronics
    •    Breaking Chemical Water Bonds in Wood
    •    Increasing the Volume of Moisture Air Can Hold

Most of the electronics in the office can be affected if the water spill touches them directly or by the high levels of humidity in the air. Exposure to moisture mostly leads to rusting in the internal components. Drying the items quickly can help save them. By regulating heat, our SERVPRO technicians also ensure that the appliances do not cool down to the dew point, which helps prevent rusting.

Wooden items are traditional in office environments, and since wood absorbs and holds water, there is a need to ensure it dries thoroughly. The absorbed water can exist as free water or bound water within the cells of the wood. Bound water does not evaporate easily, complicating the process of saving wooden items such as furniture or even floor materials. Temperature regulation is the key to breaking such chemical bonds. Our SERVPRO technicians heat the materials to vaporize the bound water. Vapor pressure then moves the moisture from wetter sections of the material to drier areas until it escapes to the surface.

Supplying sufficient heat to achieve different goals can be difficult. Our SERVPRO crews use different equipment to ensure we have the heat where we need it. We can use portable electric heaters, which are perfect when we need to heat limited areas. We also have indirect fired furnaces, which can heat the entire building.

Proper heat management is essential when completing water removal. Call SERVPRO of The Lakes Region at (603) 527-2518 to help manage the process, eliminating traces of the incident, “Like it never even happened.”

How SERVPRO Turns Around Commercial Mold Damage In A Belmont Hotel

Commercial mold damage can harm a business on several levels, especially the hotel industry, where guests have the assumed assurance of comfort and cleanliness as part of the package. There are possible health effects from mold exposure, and often a foul odor accompanies the growth of mold colonies, which makes it unpleasant for both employees and guests. Plus, the loss of revenue due to closure during remediation can be stressful for property owners.

When SERVPRO works on a hotel in Belmont with commercial mold damage in a guest room, our main goal is to cause as little disruption as possible and get the hotel reopened quickly. It's crucial to identify the cause of colony growth. We look for slow leaks in pipes, poor ventilation, roof or other structural leaks to name a few of the most common reasons.

Once SERVPRO technicians identify the cause, we recommend to the hotel manager or property owner the proper repairs needed to stop this situation from reoccurring in the future after the completion of our remediation efforts. We have stop measures in place to inhibit growth such as our antimicrobial solution and antimicrobial sealer, but repairs to fix the cause of excessive moisture are vital. Our technicians are certified Applied Microbial Remediation Specialist (AMRS), and they possess the knowledge to reduce the effects of mold to near zero.

One of the first actions our technicians do is containment. This setup is designed to halt the spread of spores and consists of an airlock barrier zipper chamber which works to seal off the area from the rest of the hotel. The furnishings in the room are wrapped, pre-cleaned, and cataloged for storage in an on-site pod and returned to their places in the room after we complete remediation.
Then, SERVPRO techs scope the property to ensure we identify the location of all mold colonies and contain the areas around them. It is a commonplace to utilize the services of an Industrial Hygienist to test the air quality and visually identifiable colonies for the presence and type of mold.

Because mold spores range anywhere from 3-100 microns in size, a negative air fan scrubber with HEPA filtration and negative air exhaust fans within the space assist with the capture of airborne spores during remediation of the room. SERVPRO technicians perform abatement on dried colonies by hand-cleaning or in stubborn cases, soda blasting to remove all traces so the hotel can reopen the room for guests safely without any reminders of the mold problem.

At the first sign of commercial mold damage contact SERVPRO of The Lakes Region at (603) 527-2518, and we can remediate existing mold and inhibit the conditions that caused it, so it is “Like it never even happened.”

Is Mold Taking Over Your Franklin Dry Cleaning Business?

4/9/2019 (Permalink)

Mold frequents warm, humid environments. Call SERVPRO at the first sign of mold.

Tackling the Challenge of Commercial Mold Damage in Franklin Dry Cleaning Facilities

Mold develops fast when there is excess moisture on surfaces or higher than normal levels of humidity. Mold colonies can develop on building materials, furniture and even fabrics, which is a significant problem in a dry cleaning facility because such infestation can lead to patches on surfaces and a musty smell. It is hard to convince people that your facility can clean their items if such conditions prevail.  

Mold colonies tend to develop in areas out of sight, so by the time you realize there is mold damage in you Franklin dry cleaning facility, the problem could be severe. Learning to spot initial signs such as the presence of a musty smell and spots on surfaces can help you take abatement measures early. Our SERVPRO technicians can help you check for wet areas in concealed spaces using FLIR thermal cameras. We can also help establish whether relative humidity levels are higher than usual using thermo-hygrometers.  

In many cases, mold damage is confined in a section of the property unless an extreme event such as flooding causes it. Identifying affected and unaffected areas can help structure the remediation process to focus only on damaged areas. Keeping the business running or minimizing the downtime is crucial to avoid disappointing your clients. Our SERVPRO technicians create exclusion zones and clean rooms to prevent cross-contamination during remediation. Such measures also help the facility to keep serving customers.

Dealing with mold requires a combination of steps such as removing excess moisture, cleaning up debris and killing spores to prevent immediate recurrence. Our SERVPRO technicians identify the moisture source in your facility and then use drying equipment such as LGR dehumidifiers and air movers to dry it. We also use professional cleaning agents with anti-microbial properties to help kill spores.  

In case of mold infestation in your Laconia, Belmont or Tilton dry cleaning facility, call SERVPRO of The Lakes Region to help with proper abatement. You can reach us at (603) 527-2518 any time. We're Faster To Any Size Disaster.

Franklin Businesses Rely on SERVPRO After a Water Loss

Franklin Businesses Avert Water Loss Shutdowns with SERVPRO's Help

A Burst Pipe Could Cause Water Damage in Your Franklin Cafe  

Pipes can begin to freeze with the onset of winter and, unfortunately, this means that they can burst and cause water damage to your property. Your cafe is located inside an old building, with an apartment above it, and the plumbing is equally aged. When temperatures began to drop below freezing at night but come back up during the day, the constant freezing and unfreezing caused stress to the old plumbing. Eventually, one of the pipes running through the ceiling burst, and leaked hundreds of gallons of water into your establishment.

If the water damage inside of your Franklin cafe is left for too long, it can cause extensive damage to the structure of your property. The wooden flooring can begin to absorb the water, allowing it to swell, split, and become generally misshapen. The water can run down the walls, providing a moist environment for mold spores to thrive in and create a colony. Mold can cause health effects, and therefore it is never wise to allow water damage to get that far. Calling for professional help as soon as possible can help ensure that the remediation can go smoothly.
At SERVPRO, we understand how essential it is for your establishment to be open to the locals of the city. Without foot traffic, your business is halted. Therefore, SERVPRO works around your schedule, whenever you need us to be at your cafe. Should you discover damage deep into the night, we can swiftly come to your property and work through it.
When our IICRC-certified techs arrive, SERVPRO can begin the remediation of the water damage inside of your establishment by using advanced equipment. We can use devices such as wet/dry vacuums and portable pumps to remove the standing water from your establishment. Once the bulk of the water is gone, SERVPRO can focus on drying out the structure of your cafe. Our techs can use equipment such as drying mats, air movers, and desiccant dehumidifiers to ensure that the moisture levels inside of your cafe are at the appropriate level. Once all the water damage has been remediated, we can return your cafe to you at its preloss state.
If your business suffers water, flood, mold, or fire damage, call for help as soon as you can. Get in touch with SERVPRO of The Lakes Region by phoning (603) 527-2518. 24/7, we hope to make you feel "Like it never even happened."

Being prepared to handle water-related damages in your business is very important to avoid the direct and indirect effects such damages have.

How You Can Prepare For Commercial Water Cleanup In Belmont

Having the contacts of a professional cleanup service like SERVPRO helps because when you detect a problem, you can call us to start the remediation process immediately. Fast recovery helps create a positive image for your business.

Extended exposure to water, even if clean, damages stock.

Our SERVPRO team that handles cleaning is also able to move items off-site or to another section of the property. Any stock that you save helps reduce the overall cost of cleanup.

Our SERVPRO team has the necessary tools for cleaning and drying, eliminating the effects from the loss “Like it never even happened.”

Team SERVPRO Understands That Time is of the Essence When it Comes to Remediating Commercial Water Damage

Running a restaurant can be a challenging thing to do when everything is working as it should, and things are relatively smooth. When something like a water emergency occurs, even on a smaller scale, your Belmont restaurant requires immediate attention to get things back on track before the profit side of your business starts to take a dramatic hit. Admittedly, many business owners often ponder the possibility of cleaning up water damage themselves, but if this does not get done appropriately, worse damages could result.

This decision ensures that the situation gets handled as efficiently as possible, and you can expect the highest quality of work to prevent the possibility of worse damages resulting from inadequate restoration of the affected areas.

When you serve up food to hungry locals, these same patrons expect that your facility is accommodating and kept up.

Commercial Water Removal Services After a Sewer Backup in Your Belmont Business

3/27/2018 (Permalink)

Need Water and Sewage Cleanup in Belmont? Call SERVPRO for a Safe, Sanitary Solution

Sewage and Water Damage Often Provide a Double Challenge for SERVPRO and Your Enterprise

One of the most unpleasant things that can happen to your Belmont clothing boutique is a sewer backup. A blocked sewer pipe can cause wastewater to back up into your shop. The contaminated water damages your building and the contents inside. It can also create health effects for you, your employees, and even your customers.
A sewer backup leading to water damage in your Belmont building is something you want to get taken care of immediately. Besides being unpleasant, you need commercial water removal services as soon as possible to prevent further damage to the building or your merchandise and displays. SERVPRO technicians are always standing by for emergencies like this, so you can call us as soon as an urgent situation arises.
During some remediation jobs, biohazards are present. Many of them are invisible to the naked eye and can only be detected under a microscope. Many biohazards are harmful upon exposure which is why we always wear protective gear while working in a water damage situation like this.
Any water damage can have organisms which create a health threat to occupants and workers. Sewage water is certainly problematic, and SERVPRO techs realize that this type of water is highly infectious waste material. The water could contain several different diseases and living organisms. Besides this, the water can emit methane gas and other sewer gasses that are harmful to breathe. When working in environments like these, we follow all proper safety precautions.
When working in contaminated environments with any biohazards materials, it requires that we use personal protective equipment-PPE. It includes wearing a full-body suit with hood, latex or rubber gloves, and eye protection in the form of goggles or a full-face mask. Our technicians are also required to go through safety training before we begin working in a hazardous environment. The final result is that by being trained, equipped and prepared we can expedite your water damaging event to a rapid conclusion.
SERVPRO of The Lakes Region is always cautious when working around a sewage backup situation in your business in Tilton, Laconia, or Gilford. Please contact us right away at (603) 527-2518 after a water damage loss so we can help get your business cleaned up again.

Remediating Commercial Water Damage in Belmont

2/12/2018 (Permalink)

When you have a small manufacturing facility, any downtime due to damage is costly. Should your facility suffer a water damage event, call SERVPRO.

SERVPRO Technicians Quickly Dry Out Your Business to Minimize Any Closures

To a Belmont business, any disaster is double the loss, or more, than when the same problem strikes a home. Besides the structural damage, there is damage to inventory, and the loss of income for every day shut down.
Commercial water damage in Belmont can close a small business quickly unless the owner has a very good insurance policy. It does not stop closure though, only slows it down. Each of our offices is locally owned, so SERVPRO managers know exactly how important it is to reopen the doors and begin helping customers as quickly as possible. For a small manufacturing company, we understand that the emphasis is to dry out the facility so employees can safely return to work and begin turning out a finished product again.
Since this is a structure with multiple exits and entrances, we can use that to start drying out the facility. If the weather permits, we open every door and window possible not just to help drain water but to establish a crossflow and circulate the air inside. Our technicians augment this natural process by installing exhaust fans at key exit points and air movers inside to force warm, dry air into the circulating cooler, damp air.
As team members set up these devices, other SERVPRO technicians remove any standing water inside the business. For deeper water levels, we can start with commercial grade pumps which draw out most of it. Then, we change to a smaller device called an extraction wand. These can draw water off concrete and linoleum floors until there is very little moisture remaining.
To completely dry the floor, team members push the last traces of water out the nearest exits with large squeegees designed for this task. In corners and other areas where it is difficult to remove the water, technicians set up more air movers to force warm air over the spots to dry them. We carefully control the temperature since too much heat can generate more moisture.
With the water removed, we can then redirect air movers to dry water from under shelving, storage units, and mechanical equipment. If needed, we also have the option to place dehumidifiers inside the building to help dry out equipment and the surrounding air.
If you are trying to work around water damage in your business, stop, and contact a professional restoration company immediately. SERVPRO of The Lakes Region has served New Hampshire businesses for over twenty years and can help you get back up to normal operations. Call (603) 527-2518 today to schedule a visit with one of our teams.

Seasonal Favorites May Be On Hold Because Of Water Damage In Belmont

11/3/2017 (Permalink)

An unpleasant surprise can await if the ice and snow make their way inside the building during the off months.

Commercial Water Damage Restoration

Belmont enjoys the change of seasons, and residents and visitors alike look forward to seasonal shops and restaurants reopening when the weather warms. An unpleasant surprise can await if the ice and snow make their way inside the building during the off months, damaging the structure and threatening to postpone opening day. Work with a seasoned restoration company to remediate the damage and plan for repairs to avoid issues in the future.

Water damage delayed the opening of Belmont’s handmade ice cream treat shop in the spring. During the days leading up to the traditional grand opening, the interior walls showed dark staining, and an unpleasant smell pervaded the air. A simple touch up with paint clearly would not be enough to freshen the area. Our professional water damage specialists inspect the affected areas and link the damage to ice dams that built up in the gutters over the winter.

Regardless of the cause of the water intrusion, SERVPRO restoration specialists plan to bring the sweet shop back to life. Moisture meter readings taken by our crew determine drying goals for the wooden rafters soaked with winter precipitation. Commercial sized air movers and dehumidifiers positioned strategically by our technicians reduce the moisture content of the load bearing walls to return them to proper condition. SERVPRO project managers have a restoration mindset, working hard to design project plans that avoid the need for demolition and instead rejuvenate original building materials. This approach saves time and money.

Moisture does work its way through ceiling tiles and softens the gypsum board lining the interior. These composites are usually made of chipped or pressed wood fibers and water-soluble adhesives. We work with your insurance company to decide whether all efforts should concentrate on the restoration of every building material. SERVPRO counsels flexibility in its remediation approach and takes a practical position when the damage is irreversible and requires replacement of some of the damaged components. A few ceiling tiles and portions of drywall easily switch out and complete the interior reclamation after the drying of the building studs.

With the reopening date secured, SERVPRO looks forward to the end of the season in the fall. Repair of gutters and installation or replacement of adequate insulation keep warmer interior air from melting snow and ice near the edges of the roof. This action prevents water from pushing under the shingles of the roof and into the upper reaches of the building. Closing up the store for the winter then avoids the threat of continuing water damage.

SERVPRO of The Lakes Region not only assists with current water damage issues but also helps you plan to close the portals water uses to get inside to commence the problem cycle. Call (603) 527-2518 for a practical and proactive solution.

A speedy response is crucial to assure the comfort of all guests vacationing with you. We have the equipment and the trained technicians to get rid of the water fast without a ripple in the experience of your visitors.
Water flowing from tub to floor not only damages the room where the accident happens but also threatens other areas in your resort. SERVPRO understands that water removal is an immediate need so that the tub contents do not leak into other rooms or common areas. The water in a whirlpool is also considered gray, a moderately contaminated level. This designation is important as it means there is a heightening possibility of microbial growth if it is not managed swiftly. Soaps and other bath products, offer nourishment to the mold spores always present indoors. The water must be removed and all affected areas dried within 24 to 48 hours or mold growth is probable.
Our water removal team arrives with the power and the know-how to remove the water fast. Professional grade water extractors pull moisture from the floors and carpeting.
