Fire Damage We Use State-Of-The-Art Equipment To Restore Your Portsmouth Home We restored this Portsmouth house from soot and smoke damage in every room of the house with our expertise and equipment.

Discover How to Remove Fire Damage Odor from Your Portsmouth Home Effectively

Stubborn smoke odor is one of the detrimental consequences of fire damage. It can linger in your house for a lengthy period, compromising the air you breathe. If your home has a smoke odor, you should take steps to eliminate it effectively and quickly. Removing the smoke scent is challenging for the tiny smoke particles stick to all household surfaces and get embedded into porous materials like fabrics, carpeting, furniture, books and even paint. Removing the scent requires specialized cleaning equipment.

It is advisable to hire a fire restoration company like SERVPRO to remove fire damage odor from your Portsmouth home. Our experts can assess the situation and select the most appropriate remediation method while ensuring safety. We use state-of-the-art equipment like ozone generators to eradicate smoke smells. These machines generate ozone, which consists of three oxygen atoms. Ozone reacts with odor-causing molecules to oxidize residues and eliminate the scents.

Ozone can harm living things because of the way it combines with water. It may cause nausea and headaches among other health issues. SERVPRO technicians remove all living things from the area before setting up an ozone generator and sealing the rooms to prevent dissipation. After the deodorization process, ozone returns to the normal oxygen molecule quickly, without leaving residues. We also use high-velocity fans to ventilate the area until the smell of ozone is gone.

When it is not safe to use an ozone generator, our technicians use hydroxyl generators. These generators use ultraviolet light to produce hydroxyl, which is useful for removing fire damage odors. Hydroxyl generators do not affect the health of plants, pets, and humans. We can also seal porous surfaces that have absorbed smoke such as unfinished, raw wood. At times, odor remains in confined areas after the deodorization process is complete. In such a situation, our technicians can ventilate the confined space, place an activated unit in it overnight or thermal-fog the whole structure if necessary. Our goal is to deal with the fire damage odor to make your home smell “Like it never even happened.”

If your home has fire damage odor, SERVPRO of The Seacoast can assist you in eliminating it. We have years of experience in dealing with smoke odors. Contact us any time at (603) 433-4300 for fire restoration services in Portsmouth, Exeter, and Hampton.

Why SERVPRO What to Do Before Flood Damage in Hampton Taking steps to prepare for a flood can help to minimize the damage, SERVPRO can take care of the post-flood cleanup.

Steps to Take Before Flood Damage to Keep You and Your Family Safe

Flood damage is a frightening prospect for any homeowner. You do not know what to expect. Naturally, you hope to stay safe, but it is better to know what to do than to be caught short when a disaster happens. That is why SERVPRO recommends all Hampton homeowners get familiar with the following steps to take when you know a flood is coming.

Although flash floods sometimes occur, in many cases, there is a warning of flooding. Local news and weather stations frequently predict lousy weather or flood damage, so the local community in Hampton knows what to expect. Here are some steps to take as soon as you hear a flood is on the way.

Prepare to evacuate if necessary. Fill your car with gas. Put together an emergency kit with flashlights, nonperishable food, clean bottled water, money, first aid items, and three days’ dose of any medications you and your family take. Locate your nearest evacuation shelter and plan your route there.

If you have time, the American Red Cross recommends filling plastic bottles with clean water for drinking and filling tubs and sinks with water for flushing the toilet or washing clothes.

Many people do not realize that fire is a risk during a flood – a compromised propane tank can cause a blaze. Turn off all propane tanks. Floods can also damage electrical items in your home. SERVPRO recommends unplugging all electrical items and moving them to a high point in your home if you can.

Move all valuables to the highest point in your home that is practical. It is a good idea to keep all essential documents in a watertight box so that they stay safe in the event of flooding.

Limiting Mold Damage in Exeter

3/22/2019 (Permalink)

Why SERVPRO Limiting Mold Damage in Exeter  Mold can spread quickly through a home if the conditions are right. Should you see or smell mold, contact SERVPRO for an investigation of the cause.

SERVPRO Technicians Remediate Mold Infestations and Help Prevent Any Recurrences

Mold spores are equal opportunity damage causing agents, affecting homes old and new in Exeter. Understanding the life cycle of the more than 100,000 strains of mold that may co-exist with you is crucial to your quest to stop the spores from becoming active and growing colonies. We educate and remediate, striving to keep your home free of activated and multiplying mold. 
 
Your home has all the components necessary for mold damage in Exeter present at all times. Although this statement may seem defeatist and disturbing, it is true. Mold spores float on air currents with your other household dust and settle on surfaces throughout your home. As long as they remain dry, the presence of all these spores is of little concern. Only when they absorb excess moisture and begin to grow and produce more spores is there an issue. Our remediation specialists manage these growing concerns and work with you to stop the cycle. 
 
The State of New Hampshire requires any company promising to help residents with mold outbreaks to be certified by a third party. SERVPRO owners and technicians hold certifications from the IICRC in Mold Mitigation, Understanding Mold in the Restoration Industry, and the crew members we send to your home are all Applied Microbial Remediation Specialists. We follow the EPA protocols of containment, removal, off-site disposal, and sanitation to rid your home of currently growing colonies. 
 
More importantly, we spend the time necessary to locate the source of moisture that feeds mold spores initially, creating the probability of repeated infestations. SERVPRO knows the key to mold elimination over the long term is moisture elimination. Sometimes it is an obvious water issue like a roof leak, ice dam, or plumbing fail. Other times the cause is more subtle -- a few tablespoons of the dog’s water spilled in the mudroom daily that causes the subfloor to mildew, overly high humidity in a sick baby’s nursery, a dirty drip tray under the refrigerator. Until we find the water or moisture, we have not completed our mold remediation successfully. 
 
Once the mold is gone, we also help clean up the staining or peeling of paint, or other reminders that mold used to live here. SERVPRO pledges to return your home to pre loss condition, down to a fresh paint job or a thorough deodorization of any lingering musty smells. 
 
SERVPRO of The Seacoast is your partner in remediating mold. Call our 24-hour number, (603) 433-4300, for assistance whenever you discover a mold problem and want certified and caring technicians to assist.

Understanding the Deodorization Process After Flood Damage to Your Hampton Home

3/22/2019 (Permalink)

Why SERVPRO Understanding the Deodorization Process After Flood Damage to Your Hampton Home   After facing a flooding event, contacting SERVPRO is your best bet towards total remediation including any lingering odors. Call right away.

SERVPRO Professionals First Dry Out Your Flooded Home and Then Tackle Remaining Issues Including Odor

Even after the floodwater is cleaned and residual moisture is taken care of following flood damage, the odor can linger on for quite some time. The flood water from heavy rains and storms is often filthy and can cause your home to reek if it is not appropriately mitigated. 

Professional restoration experts use a variety of techniques and strategies to combat the odor problems after flood damage to your Hampton home. Whether the odors are real or imaginary, SERVPRO technicians can eliminate them using some of the best deodorizing equipment on the market. Here is some of the equipment that is used in the deodorization process following a flood. 

Ventilation box fans 
One of the most critical factors that cause odors after a flood is moisture content in the air. If the air has a high relative humidity, the door vapors can dissolve in the moisture and reach the nose making them more noticeable. As a result, drying the air can reduce the perception of odors to a great deal. Ventilation box fans achieve this by drying the contents and helping to ventilate the rooms after application of deodorant. 

Pressure sprayer/ Electric sprayer 
Technicians often use pump-up or electric sprayers to dispense deodorizing compounds and masking agents at a pressure of around 50 psi. This equipment allows the deodorizing agent to be sprayed directly onto the surface being deodorized. 

Portable ozone machine 
An ozone machine generates a form of highly reactive oxygen called ozone, that can neutralize many odor-causing molecules in the air. Chemically speaking, ozone reacts with the odor-causing molecule and oxidizes them. It is a great technique to eliminate the toughest of odors after a flood, but it can be used only in case of a move-out. All people, pets, and plants need to be evacuated from the premises before SERVPRO technicians can use this technique. 

Air scrubbers 
Air scrubbers can remove many airborne odor-causing particles and gasses from the air. The device works by drawing in the air through a series of HEPA filters trapping the odor-causing particles. The filters can eliminate particles as small as 0.3 microns in size with an efficiency of 99.97%.

Small Scale Fire Damage Leaves Big Odor Problem in Greenland Home

Fires that do not do much in the way of actual fire damage may seem like something a homeowner could take care of on their own, but they should not. The reason has nothing to do with the water cleanup, but rather the smoke and soot that permeated porous materials and left an odor and a residue that cannot be just wiped away.
 
When SERVPRO tackles the odor left behind from fire damage in a Greenland home, we first determine if there is any residual moisture left in building materials or possessions and ensure the area is thoroughly dried using our specialized techniques. Then our certified technicians access how much the odor has spread and implement measures to contain the smell and particles from any further spreading by setting up containment around the area.
 
SERVPRO Odor Control Technicians are specialists in eliminating offensive odors and have many resources to attacking stubborn scents left behind by a fire. Our technicians perform a complete wipedown of affected areas using professional grade cleaners with both wet and dry sponges as determined by the type of residue. We often use HEPA filtered air scrubbers with an additional activated charcoal filter can capture odor-causing particles as small as 0.3microns.
 
If the smell left behind proves stubborn, thermal fogging a very effective method we utilize to eliminate unpleasant scents. The thermal fogger delivers a solvent-based deodorizer that is heated and the dry fog acts in the same manner as smoke from a fire. The vaporized solution permeates and neutralizes foul odors in porous items and building materials leaving no trace of smoke odors.
 
Foul odors do not have to be a reminder of fire damage in your home. Call SERVPRO of The Seacoast at (603) 433-4300 and talk to one of our certified technicians.
