Hire SERVPRO for Commercial Water Damage Repair in Portsmouth

Moisture is among the most destructive forces in a building. Water intrusion can be particularly harmful in senior living facilities. Apart from the repair costs, waterlogged materials can present mold issues that must be safely managed. The facility’s operations can also halt. 

Structural damage is likely if the water intrusion extends to the walls and baseboards. You need experts to repair commercial water damage in your Portsmouth senior living facility. SERVPRO can respond shortly after your call. Upon arrival, our technicians can create a digital map for your property. 

Walking through the facility, we can mark the map to indicate the areas with damp building materials. This process offers a clear image of the affected areas. Using moisture meters for precise results, we can measure the moisture levels of all impacted surfaces like baseboards, subfloors, cabinets, furniture, ceilings, and walls. The other steps SERVPRO can take to restore your facility include the following:

  • Water extraction
  • Drying and dehumidification
  • Restoring contents
  • Repairing or replacing damaged materials.

SERVPRO’s team is trained and certified in water damage repair. Our team can use electric submersible pumps to extract water from the affected areas. We can use air-moving and dehumidification tools to dry the property. Our technicians can also inventory, pack and take damaged items like fabrics and furniture to our facilities to clean, deodorize and restore them until restoration work at your facility is complete.

We can repair or replace some building materials if they are severely damaged. When doing so, our SERVPRO team can set up containments for worker and occupant safety. The degree of containment can vary based on the regulations that apply to your facility and the safety of the residents. At a minimum, we can use a barrier to separate work areas to prevent debris and dust from entering non-work areas. We may also create negative air pressure within containment areas to prevent air from blowing out of the work area. 

As you create your emergency response plan after commercial water damage, keep SERVPRO of The Seacoast, SERVPRO of Dover-Rochester, and SERVPRO of Durham in mind. Call us at (603) 433-4300.

Portsmouth Water Damage Cleanup and Repair with SERVPRO

Water incidents happen, but it is how you address them that counts. Once you turn off the water from a burst pipe or begin the cleanup after a significant spill or flooding, know that reconstruction may be a factor. Rather than hiring someone without experience or putting the weight of such a project on your shoulders, SERVPRO is available in the Portsmouth area to handle water removal services, drying, and repair. We’re Faster to Any Size Disaster.

There is more to water damage repair in Portsmouth than removing standing water and putting on a fresh coat of paint. Hiring skilled water restoration technicians (WRT) from SERVPRO ensures all moisture gets dried and you have your interior back to the pre-event condition because we make everything “Like it never even happened.”

Controlled Demolition To The Rescue

Many water-related incidents call for some level of repair and reconstruction. Replacement is often required if you have saturated drywall or damage to your carpeting, wood floors, or subflooring. SERVPRO uses trusted area contractors to ensure all facets of your project get handled for quality results. 

How Does the Water Restoration Process Work?

  • Inspection/Assessment – Once we arrive at your home or business, we assess all damage and identify all hazards. We stop the source of the damage and develop an action plan.
  • Water Removal and Drying – All standing water gets up using pumps, extractors, and other powerful tools. At the same time, drying equipment gets set up to lower relative humidity and speed up drying time. 
  • Repair and Reconstruction – Unsalvageable materials get removed and disposed of while area contractors work on replacing them and rebuilding any damaged areas of your home. Our proven processes help you to restore versus replace, thus saving you money in the long run.

Never Wait to Call for Restoration Assistance.

Venues and event centers are prevalent throughout Exeter and its surrounding areas, primarily because people always want a dedicated location to host large parties, events, and celebrations. As an owner of a business like this, your primary focus is keeping the facilities in top form for the next rental group that happens to get scheduled. An unexpected water emergency could significantly derail your profits and your reputation if you are not handling it promptly and professionally.

The trouble with running an event venue is that you cannot always account for the activities or the responsibility level of those who rent your space. This risk is typical of every owner of a business like this. Still, one fundamental mistake could leave your Exeter venue with substantial water damage. If you have hopes of preventing last-minute cancelations of your scheduled parties and events, you need to react to the problem quickly and with the professional assistance of SERVPRO.

Our experienced technicians have gotten uniquely trained to handle all manner of water damages that could affect your property, from the latest equipment to make the process more efficient to the current strategies that work best in the restoration world. Our restoration process begins with an inspection of the affected area to better familiarize the team and you, the business owner, with what has to happen to remedy the damages.

In many cases, drying is the most crucial component to restoring water damages, and our SERVPRO professionals can accomplish this step in a few different ways. Typically, the drying occurs with the combined use of air movers and dehumidification equipment, though specialized tools like our drying mats for flooring or injectidry system for inside walls could also get implemented in this process.

Running a venue in the area is only successful when you can continue to meet the needs of the client base you have without compromise. This fact requires you to seek professional restoration, like what our experienced technicians at SERVPRO of The Seacoast provide, for any water damages you face. If you are looking at the effects of a recent water emergency on your property, give us a call today at (603) 433-4300.

SERVPRO’s Portsmouth Franchise Offers Commercial Water Restoration Scalability

Water damage to your Portsmouth business is not only stressful but also hazardous and expensive to handle and clean up on your own. The longer pooled water or hidden moisture sits, the more you have to deal with black mold growth, structural damage, and unsalvageable inventory or contents. SERVPRO handles all categories of water damage, and our disaster response team provides scalability to tackle everything from restoring a small retail space to a large manufacturing facility.

Did you know that SERVPRO can handle the worst types of damage with our commercial restoration services in Portsmouth? There are three types of water situations we encounter, which include:

  • Clean water (category 1) – This is clean water from rain or a burst pipe in your business. The low level of contamination makes it easier to clean and less harmful when coming into contact with it. 
  • Gray water (category 2) – This is slightly contaminated water that may come from machinery or other water-using appliances. Various contaminants could exist, but are not as hazardous as blackwater.
  • Blackwater (category 3) – This is the worst water damage scenario as it is highly contaminated. It may come from storm flooding or a damaged sewer pipe. You must have skilled professionals with the best equipment to handle it.

SERVPRO knows how to follow the water’s migration path as it seeks dry spaces. We understand water seeps into crevices and cracks throughout your business, so we use moisture detection tools and careful drying techniques to help us restore relative humidity. You can also count on us to use the proper protocols when cleaning and disinfecting all areas so you can trust all surfaces are clean for your staff and customers entering the building once we get done. 

When you need help with spills and commercial water restoration, contact SERVPRO of The Seacoast, SERVPRO of Dover-Rochester, and SERVPRO of Durham by calling (603) 433-4300. We will make it “Like it never even happened.”

Off-Site Fire Restoration Content Cleaning for Portsmouth Shops

SERVPRO Professionals Clean Fire Damage from Portsmouth Shop Stock

Fires affect structures of all sizes, so whether it is a large box store or a boutique for specialty items, the same urgent fire damage restoration service is mobilizing to help. We can provide several mitigative solutions to protect your property and its contents.

The Pack-Out Process

Fire restoration for Portsmouth shops can often prioritize the need to protect the contents and wares of the facility to protect the investment of property management. For this reason, our SERVPRO team has a pack-out process that gathers all exposed items for focused cleaning, drying, and deodorization. Relocated inventory can include:

  • Wares
  • Furniture
  • Clothing

Submersion Tanks

Soot adheres rapidly to solid surfaces and non-porous elements like glass, porcelain, and similar compositions. Cleaning up after soot exposure at our SERVPRO facility can utilize our ultrasonic tanks that loosen and remove soot soils on these objects to restore their original appearance.


Soft materials impacted by soot and smoke solids must be gently cleaned and restored. Unlike the submersion tanks and how they can help hard surfaces, our ESPORTA Wash system delicately lifts soils from fabrics and soft materials for a deep clean without abrasive or aggressive mechanical action.

Ozone Chamber

Another obstacle for our restoration team with the items pulled from damaged shops is the exposure to airborne smoke odor compounds. These molecules can become trapped in porous elements like clothing and upholstery, making it vital to have an effective deodorization approach to manage multiple items simultaneously. Our ozone chamber does just that.

Protecting the wares and inventory of your shop after a fire damage incident is valuable. We appreciate how disruptive and destructive these events can be, so we prioritize any option to make the restoration process and recovery efforts more streamlined and cost-efficient. Give our SERVPRO of The Seacoast, SERVPRO of Dover-Rochester, and SERVPRO of Durham teams a call for large loss fire recovery at (603) 433-4300.

SERVPRO’s Mold Remediation and Cleanup is Best for Portsmouth Businesses

Taking care of your business means looking into every aspect of operations. Should you suspect that you have black mold developing anywhere within your Portsmouth commercial space, you need to have it inspected and cleaned as soon as possible. SERVPRO can get in and out with precision to carefully address all surfaces riddled with mold, and We’re Faster to Any Size Disaster!

Our team of skilled technicians has experience handling various situations, including contamination like mold. When you require mold remediation in your Portsmouth commercial building, you can trust that we know how to begin to get the best results. 

  • The SERVPRO team not only handles cleanup of all surfaces where mold is suspected, but we also find the source of moisture causing the problem. 
  • A common cause for fungal growth is persistent humidity. Mold brought on by moisture/humidity that develops in storage closets, under cabinetry in your employee lounge or bathrooms. 
  • Leaking pipes can be another cause of microbial contamination. This may bring on wall or ceiling mold, so our team locates the issue at the source to repair it before wrapping up the mold cleanup job. 

Mold Facts

Mold colonies contain hyphae, which penetrate various porous surfaces, including fabrics, drywall, insulation, etc. Never try DIY spray remedies like bleach or other cleaners when addressing mold growth within your commercial property. This can exacerbate the issue, dislodging the microscopic spores and sending them airborne. Once they travel through your building’s HVAC system, you have to worry about the potential health effects for employees and all areas they spread to.

If you require mold remediation at your commercial building, contact SERVPRO of The Seacoast, SERVPRO of Dover-Rochester, and SERVPRO of Durham today! You can reach us at any time by calling (603) 433-4300.

What to Avoid When Your Library in Hampton is Facing Water Damage

Here To Help SERVPRO IICRC certified technicians have the training and experience in all phases of commercial damage restoration.

Pack-outs Protect PCs and Literature in Your Hampton Library

Whenever water loss incidents occur in your Hampton library, you need to react quickly to protect the investment that you have made in the countless novels and publications throughout the building. With how quickly water effects can spread throughout the library, many areas can become affected over a brief period. Reaching out to professional restoration technicians can help to not only protect the structural integrity of the building but also offer effective, rapid solutions that can protect the contents of the facility as well.

Water damage in Hampton can present a hazardous condition for the contents of your library. Moisture itself can be substantially damaging to books and other literature that you might have in the building, making it pressing for the right personnel to work quickly on mitigation tactics that can protect them. Our SERVPRO professionals have a 24/7 response to water loss emergencies, arriving with the full measure of our effective extraction and drying equipment and IICRC-certified recovery team.

Water Clean Up

Once our team first arrives at your library, we must assess the spread of the damage throughout the building to begin establishing containment. We can stop the spread of water damage with the right barriers and running equipment. During this assessment, our Contents Department can begin to remove contents and publications at risk of exposure to moisture and direct saturation. We can work to get these either to a point where water damage can no longer affect them or take them to our nearby facility for focused drying and storage.

This recovery solution is also vital for electronics that you have in the computer lab portion of the building. With these public access PCs, moisture and dampness in the vicinity can penetrate and ruin internal wiring and motherboards, causing the computer to suffer irreparable damage. The pack-out procedure can help our SERVPRO team to protect these items in your library as well.

While you might have many concerns when water loss incidents occur, protecting your investment in the library with its electronics and works of literature must be a priority. Our SERVPRO of The Seacoast team can quickly protect these items from the detrimental effects of water damage. Give us a call anytime at (603) 433-4300.

Infrared Cameras Aid In Commercial Flood Damage Restoration In Portsmouth

Let SERVPRO Show You the Ropes When it Comes to Your Portsmouth Commercial Flood Damage

If Mother Nature ever decides to wreak havoc on your office building in Portsmouth by sending a vicious storm your way, rainwater could get into many places inside your structure. Whenever our SERVPRO team conducts commercial flood damage mitigation procedures, we know that half the battle is finding what got wet. If water enters your office complex from the ground up, many of your building materials like your subfloor or wall studs can retain moisture.

Wet structural components can be hidden behind carpet or wall coverings. When conducting commercial flood damage mitigation in Portsmouth, our SERVPRO technicians use advanced technology and specialized tools to determine where the moisture went once it entered your office complex after the storm. We can use a wide variety of different moisture sensors and meters to detect the presence of water in drywall, wood, or carpet. However, certain areas could be wet that might be difficult to test using penetrating meters.

Especially when dealing with storm-related problems at your office building, an infrared camera can come in handy during the inspection process. Thermal imaging with these cameras can help us find where the rainwater could have gone. The camera works by showing the temperature of surfaces in different colors for hotter and colder materials.

Storms Bring Moisture

Thermal imaging can enable us to find wet materials by showing us temperature changes. When moisture contacts a surface, the temperature often changes and remains different from unaffected areas. When water evaporates from a wet surface, the temperature of the material drops. Water can also hold thermal energy longer than dry surfaces, so wet surfaces could also be warmer than other dry materials.

Unlike moisture meters, infrared cameras do not cause any destruction to your office complex because it eliminates the need to puncture holes for probes. Thermal imaging is also useful when detecting difficult areas such as high, hard to reach ceilings. Using thermography also allows our SERVPRO crew to detect moisture contents in more areas of your office in a shorter amount of time.

If your office building in Portsmouth, Hampton, or Greenland ever suffers after a severe storm, call SERVPRO of The Seacoast at (603) 433-4300. We can return your office complex to the way it was before the storm struck, "Like it never even happened."

Check list SERVPRO can help with your damaged inventory after a water mishap.

Rely on SERVPRO to Mitigate Storm Damage

Inventory management is an essential task for any store that sells goods in Exeter. A proper inventory management system monitors sales, generates reports about the stock on hand, and schedules replenishment of products. A storm, sudden or not, can lead to damaged inventory due to the flood damage incurred. When this happens, you should adjust your books to reflect the shrinkage and then call a good restoration company to assess and remedy the situation. 

If a storm has hit your warehouse or store, you may sustain considerable inventory destruction that can compromise your business. When this happens, SERVPRO can send a team of flood removal experts to Exeter for assessing the situation and restoring your property. We follow IICRC guidelines in every emergency, thus ensuring a smooth and efficient restoration process. 

How Flood Damage Affects Inventory

Inventory loss occurs when the stock count is less than the original number that the business carries on its books. While some flood damage situations can ruin merchandise beyond repair, SERVPRO can salvage particular property most of the time. One way you can reduce damage to your inventory is by protecting your stock from flood damage beforehand. This involves conducting periodic inspections of your store and then repairing it as needed. Ask us about our ERP Program, the Emergency READY Profile Plan.

Flood damage caused by a storm is considered a casualty. SERVPRO can help you sort out the damaged items from your inventory without adjusting the value of goods sold. We can also perform tasks such as document restoration (with a freeze-drying process called lyophilization) and water damage repair, which are essential for the continuity of your business. 

Our catalog includes water removal from walls, furniture, ceilings, sub-floors, ducts, and carpets. We have specialized moisture detection equipment that can come in handy in areas where standing water is not immediately visible. If the water remains unattended for too long, SERVPRO has a team of mold remediation experts who can treat the mold growth that is bound to occur.

Our Technicians Arrive Quickly to Tackle Drying Out Your Property After a Flooding Event

Quaint and imbued with decades of dining memories, fine restaurants housed in historic Hampton buildings are precious to their owners, the staff who work in them, and the loyal clientele who arrive for anniversaries, birthdays, and other special occasions. A significant water event can place all three groups of individuals in peril of losing a treasure. Our crews are up to the task of remediating the water.

The strain of a hundred years of freshwater flow finally breaks a vital pipe in your restaurant, pouring gallons upon gallons of water into your kitchen and food storage areas. Immediate commercial water removal in Hampton is essential to the continuation of your business, run for more than a century by your family. Our locally owned restoration company appreciates the severity of this crisis and responds as soon as possible.

You limit the damage by shutting off the water flow before we arrive to do a thorough assessment and begin the work of water removal and structural drying. Because many appliances in your kitchen are wired, power may be shut off. This is not a problem as SERVPRO’s submersible pumps and water extractors are truck mounted. Our technicians commence pumping and extraction operations while other workers take moisture measurements and use scanning technology to locate any hidden pockets of water.

Resolving the trapped water issue is crucial as if left in this warm and high-nutrient environment, mold could become a problem in as little as 48 hours. We work quickly and steadily to make water removal the primary task by minimizing the secondary damage that typically arises when water stands. SERVPRO managers also work with you, the city inspectors, and the insurance company to ensure that the restaurant is running again as soon as possible.

An intense session with industrial-sized air movers and desiccant dehumidifiers reduces the moisture in the structure to normal levels. Only stone and tile floors were affected, meaning no carpet or rug remediation was necessary. Working as a team, SERVPRO and your staff look forward to welcoming diners again for their special events and romantic dinners.

SERVPRO of The Seacoast is a committed member of our community, ready to assist with any water emergency. Call our staff at (603) 433-4300 immediately after a crisis to schedule an assessment.

Mold inspections and removal strategies provide efficient remediation for Portsmouth businesses. 

Understanding your need for professional mold remediation begins with appreciating the many ways that active colonization can impact your business. While every situation is different and might require various mold removal tactics and approaches, the threats that spreading microbial organisms can cause are similar from one damaged site to the next. Obstacles we must overcome include:

  • Damaged materials
  • Noxious odors
  • Moist conditions
  • Structural vulnerabilities

How Can Mold Removal Get Started? 

Removing microbial colonies and beginning mold remediation in Portsmouth businesses requires careful evaluations of the property and its condition. We actively pursue the most efficient removal tactics based on the state of hosting materials. Organic matter can become deteriorated from hosting colonies over even a brief period. Surface treatments like sanding and antimicrobial cleaning can remove superficial colonization, but controlled demolition can also be necessary for some situations.

As challenging as mold remediation needs might be for area businesses, our SERVPRO of The Seacoast team can help with fast and effective removal options. Give us a call today at (603) 433-4300.

Can My Hotel Carpets Be Restored After a Pipe Burst?

8/10/2020 (Permalink)

person removing carpet padding and carpeting Don't let water damage close your hotel. SERVPRO has the know-how to quickly remediate the damage.

SERVPRO Can Efficiently Remove Water from Your Exeter Hotel

Exeter is home to many hotels providing luxurious rooms to travelers and those on vacation. If water damage from burst pipes impacts your hotel carpets, you need water mitigation quickly. You want as little as possible disruption to your guests coming in and out of the hotel. The last thing you want is guests writing bad reviews because of water issues. 

How Do You Restore Carpeting After Water Damage? 

More than just your carpets get impacted by water intrusion in your hotel. Hallways, staircases, and wooden structures such as the service desk can be damaged. Water restoration in Exeter involving carpeting begins with the right water extraction process. The proper extraction tools can remove water faster than drying alone. SERVPRO has trained water restoration technicians (WRT) who precisely know what is needed to restore your carpets.  

Stationary Extraction Tools  

While moving extraction tools help certain types of materials, they are not always the best thing for plush carpets. Stationary extraction methods involve using the technician's weight to apply downward pressure and push the water to the surface. The water then gets pulled through a vacuum system attached to the device. Our largest stationary units can cover 200 square inches at one time. Other extraction methods our WRT techs can use include: 

  • Portable or truck-mounted units
  • Carpet wands
  • Self-propelled extraction tools 

Leaving Your Hotel "Like it never even happened."

What Should I Do Once Black Mold Has Developed Inside My Exeter Office Bathroom?

7/20/2020 (Permalink)

For Help in Exeter From One of the Region's Best Mold Removal Companies Call SERVPRO

Slow water leaks or spills in your Exeter office's bathroom can get organic materials wet and be the cause of fungal formations. Once fungi form structures called hyphae, develop and spread in all three directions. As the fungus grows, it releases spores into the air for reproductive purposes.

How can you remove the mold from my office and keep it from spreading?

Most professional mold removal companies in Exeter, including SERVPRO, follow strict guidelines set by the Institute for Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) and the EPA when mitigating fungal contamination. The following steps can be performed by our technicians to remove the fungi and keep it from spreading to previously unaffected areas of your house:

    •    Containment: One of our main goals during the remediation process is to prevent mold and its spores from spreading. Once a fungus develops, it releases spores into the air that can cause further contamination if it runs into a wet organic substance. Therefore, before we begin any mitigation efforts, we can set up a containment chamber with thick plastic to trap in any particle that is present in the atmosphere.
    •    Sanding/Sodablasting: If black mold is already visible inside your office's bathroom, then we can remove the formations. Depending on the severity of the contamination and the surface affected, we can either sand down or soda blast off the contaminants and then seal the affected surface with a specialized sealant like Killz. Soda blasting uses baking soda to strip out and chemically neutralize fungal formations.
    •    Applying Antimicrobial Chemicals: Some household chemicals such as bleach can help eliminate mold itself, but the spores created are best destroyed by using a phenolic such as Sporicidin. These chemical products can get applied to all of the surfaces inside your affected office bathroom.

If black mold starts to develop anywhere inside your office bathroom, call SERVPRO of The Seacoast, SERVPRO of Dover-Rochester, and SERVPRO of Durham at (603) 433-4300 immediately.

My Exeter Hotel Has Mold. Who Can Help Me Remove it?

6/14/2020 (Permalink)

hotel room with key in the door Make sure to contact SERVPRO at the first indication of mold damage in your hotel. We are available 24/7.

Call One of the Leading Commercial Mold Removal Companies in Exeter to Handle the Issue

Travelers typically expect a refreshing and clean hotel room to rest. What they do not expect is mold infestation. If your Exeter hotel has mold damage, you should hire a restoration company like SERVPRO to eliminate it so that your guests and employees do not experience health effects.

Why should I hire a professional mold cleanup service?

When you notice the signs of a mold infestation in your hotel, it is vital to seek assistance from commercial mold removal companies in Exeter. Although mold treatment devices and cleaners are available in hardware stores, you cannot be sure which ones are effective. Also, you do not want to expose yourself to mold. Professionals have proper training and advanced mold remediation products and equipment.

What causes mold to grow?

Mold enters a building as tiny spores that need moisture, nutrients, favorable temperatures, and oxygen to start growing, digesting, and destroying. Molds grow best in areas with lots of moisture or humidity. The bathroom is the likeliest place where mold grows in hotel rooms. Humidity and moisture from constant use allow mold to grow between the grout. Molds can grow on many surfaces, including:

  • Ceiling tiles
  • Wood
  • Paint
  • Wallpaper
  • Sheetrock
  • Carpet
  • Insulation

Hotels usually rely on repeat customers and word of mouth referrals to remain in business. Mold in your hotel can lead to loss of customers because of negative reviews. Our SERVPRO team can take the right measures to eliminate the mold.

What does mold remediation involve?

Mold remediation is the process of removing or cleaning up mold from an indoor environment. When removing mold, it is vital to understand that when you disturb it, its spores can get into other areas of the building, creating new mold problems. Before we remove the mold, we can build a containment using negative pressure. We also wear the right personal protective equipment and follow the stipulations of the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) with regards to mold removal.

Our team can eliminate the mold by physically removing the affected porous materials and drying the environment effectively. We can also use disinfectants to remove some molds. Direct contact between certain molds and some disinfectants inhibits or slows mold growth.

How long does it take to remove mold?

The time it takes to remove mold depends on various factors like where the mold is growing, how much mold is present, and the materials it is growing on. Mold removal can take anywhere from one to five days.

If you need to remove mold from your hotel, call SERVPRO of The Seacoast, SERVPRO of Dover-Rochester, and SERVPRO of Durham at (603) 433-4300. Our staff is certified in mold remediation and mold removal by the IICRC.

Prevent and Mitigate Portsmouth Water Losses with SERVPRO's ERP Emergency READY Profile Plan

2/20/2020 (Permalink)

App ERP shown on a tablet SERVPRO's Emergency READY Profile Plan (ERP) Has Commercial Properties in Portsmouth Ready for Water Damaging Occurrences

Be Proactive Before Commercial Water Damage in Portsmouth

Business owners in Portsmouth plan for many contingencies. Employees call in sick or quit, equipment breaks, income ebbs and flows, suppliers fail to meet deadlines, seasonal demand disappoints, or surprises. One crucial concern under the radar until it demands attention is an unexpected water loss. Whether leaky plumbing, storm activity, or appliance malfunction drives the disaster, the future of your business depends on minimizing harm and a fast remediation.

How to Prepare for Water Emergencies

The perfect solution for commercial water damage in Portsmouth is to avoid it. Unfortunately, plumbing lines and appliances age and exteriors cannot withstand every severe storm. There are common-sense steps a business owner can take to limit the harm to structural components, contents, and operations. Here are a few ideas you and your staff can implement:

  • Locate important documents off-site in secure storage or digitize
  • Encase records in waterproof bins and store away from plumbing and spaces prone to flooding
  • Dedicate space for inventory above flood lines and far from plumbing, windows, and doors that could admit water
  • Raise equipment off the floor
  • Ensure all staff know the location of the main water shutoff
  • Invest in regular inspection and maintenance of water risks such as plumbing, roofs, gutters, and appliances

Partner with Us -- the Emergency READY Plan (ERP)

SERVPRO offers a unique safeguard for our commercial customers. Contact us far in advance of any water event and schedule a no-obligation assessment of your physical layout and a discussion of how you conduct business. We use this information in a couple of ways to ensure a water disaster does not destroy your life's work:

We make recommendations for adaptations you put in place now to reduce the effect of any water damage on your day-to-day routines and money-making opportunities

How Winter Weather Causes Flooding in Portsmouth

2/1/2020 (Permalink)

SERVPRO drying equipment in water damaged commercial building Snowmelt, frozen pipes, and ice dam can cause water damage to your property. We are always on call for emergency restoration,

Winter Flooding in Your Portsmouth Bed and Breakfast 

Many potential threats could always lurk during the extreme weather expected during the winter months here in Portsmouth. Biting cold snaps rarely deter travelers from stopping by your bed and breakfast as they take in the sights of New England in the winter. However, flooding in your accommodating house can lead to cancellations, bad reviews, and damaging publicity. Our SERVPRO professionals can help you to manage these emergencies quickly to reduce the spread and severity of the situation when possible. 

While snowmelt alone can lead to some compromising flood damage to Portsmouth homes and businesses, there are more direct paths for substantial water losses. The more aware you are of your B&B’s potential inadequacies in areas like insulation, the better able to protect it from these debilitating disasters when conditions become ideal for permitting them. 

Ice Dams 

It is always ideal to ensure that your bed and breakfast stays adequately heated for the patrons using your facilities for the evening. Inadequate insulation on the attic floor can make heating your upper rooms a challenge but also overheat the attic space, which can lead to ice damming on the roof. This phenomenon is a result of melting snow by heating the roof internally in frigid temperatures outside. This frozen dam continues to back up, damaging shingles and allowing water to flow back into the property. 

Frozen Pipes  

The basement area of your house is often the most susceptible to freezing, and when pipes burst, it can be impossible to provide adequate service to your guests. Our SERVPRO professionals can help with fast water extraction and drying techniques, but this cannot recover damages fast enough to preserve a ruined reservation. It is important to know the condition of your pipes and how well insulated they are against cold snaps. 

Water loss incidents inside of your bed and breakfast can be damaging to your reputation. We’re Faster To Any Size Disaster, so if you are already dealing with a flood loss in your house, we work to make sure that it does not affect more of your reservations moving forward. It is our business to get you back in business, and our SERVPRO of The Seacoast team can help by calling (603) 433-4300.

Commercial Mold Damage Experts In Dover Spell Out The Four Steps To The Remediation Process

1/8/2020 (Permalink)

Anytime you have a slow water leak, fungi can develop. Anytime you have a slow water leak, fungi can develop.

As buildings age, it is possible that places such as your assisted living facility in Dover can develop a small water leak that can lead to worse problems over time. If any organic materials such as wooden items inside your facility get wet, you might eventually be forced to have commercial mold damage restoration conducted by a professional company such as SERVPRO. We can arrive promptly and help you mitigate your issues with fungi.

Our SERVPRO team knows that mold can cause health effects and that keeping your facility sanitary is essential. During any commercial mold damage project in Dover, we use a standard set of procedures to reduce the chances of mold spreading to previously unaffected areas during the restoration process. We conduct our work processes in ways that allow you to keep your business functioning as usual.

During every mitigation project, our SERVPRO technicians always use the same following four procedures during the remediation process.

1. Establish Containment
The first step during the remediation process is to contain the work area so that spores released during the process do not spread across your building. We can use plastic to establish containment and air scrubbers to create negative air pressure inside the contained area. The air scrubber includes a HEPA filter that traps particles like mold spores and pumps out clean air.

2. Remove Mold Contamination
Anything that contains mold must be removed so that spores coming from the fungus do not keep getting released into the air. Sometimes surface fungi can be soda blasted or sanded off. However, if items such as your facility's drywall get contaminated, then the affected items could have to be removed and replaced. Any time we take away portions of your building's drywall that got contaminated by mold, we dispose of them properly inside a sealed plastic bag.

3. Clean Dust And Settled Spores
After the contaminated materials have been removed, spores could still exist inside the dust created by work processes. To clean the soil, we can use a vacuum equipped with a HEPA filter or wipe the dust off affected surfaces.

4. Dry The Materials
Once the mold contamination and spores have been cleaned and removed, we then dry out any wet building materials so that the fungus does not form again.

Anytime you have a slow water leak, fungi can develop. To make sure your assisted living facility remains to be a healthy place to stay after a fungal problem, call SERVPRO of Dover-Rochester at (603) 743-4301 any day of the week because We’re Faster to Any Size Disaster.

How SERVPRO Removes Water From Auto Repair Shops

8/26/2019 (Permalink)

Inside of auto parts store Water intrusion events into an auto garage can create a hazardous situation. SERVPRO has the know how to safely remove the water.

Precautions that Help During Commercial Water Removal in Exeter Auto Repair Shops 

When people bring vehicles to your auto repair shop, they expect solutions for a wide range of problems. A water loss incident can prevent you from serving clients when they are in dire need. In some cases, an incident can cause additional damages to the vehicles that they did not have when they arrived at your shop. Being cautious when handling spilled water at your Exeter auto repair shop can help deliver better results.  

Controlling the Spread of Dissolved Chemicals  

Caution is necessary during commercial water removal from affected Exeter Auto repair shops because the water might dissolve oils and other chemical agents used in day-to-day operations. Relying on lifting mechanisms such as water extractors and pumps is better than using mops and buckets because they limit the transfer of agents throughout the property. Spreading may not seem like a big deal, but it can prolong the cleaning process. Our SERVPRO technicians use water extractors with storage tanks to ease removal without spreading contamination.  

Managing Humidity Levels  

High humidity levels can be detrimental to the vehicles left at your store. It can cause different kinds of deterioration to car upholstery, including the development of mold. It can also cause rust in components with metallic parts. Once the water spills, evaporation starts, which increases relative humidity levels in your repair shop. Our SERVPRO technicians use different approaches to extract moisture from different materials restoring normal humidity levels. For instance, doing calculations helps ensure we place the right number of air movers and dehumidifiers to manage humidity.  

Inspecting Hidden Areas 

Once water spills, it spreads quickly throughout the affected premises. A proper inspection can help identify whether such water reaches hidden areas where it can cause long-term problems. Our SERVPRO crews use advanced equipment such as FLIR thermal cameras to identify wetness in concealed areas. We can also use advanced equipment such as injecti-dry systems to remove such hidden moisture while minimizing the demolition needed.  

Managing a water loss situation in your auto repair shop can be tricky. Call SERVPRO of The Seacoast at (603) 433-4300 to help. Our combines skills and equipment ensure we handle the incident, "Like it never even happened."

Quick Extraction to Save The Contents of Your Exeter Clinic

With a medical facility servicing the Exeter residents, you have many obligations to the patients and the staff to protect their information and records if disaster strikes. While many of the modern facilities have upgraded to using a digital format for record-keeping, most clinics and medical buildings predate this change and have a storage area with many hard copies of patient records and other sensitive data. When a water loss incident occurs somewhere in the facility, these stored items might be a top priority to protect and remove from harm’s way as efficiently as possible.

What you need in this situation is a professional restoration team that can offer fast water extraction for your Exeter facility, but also can remove these sensitive documents from the area to protect them from the present water damage. If they have already become affected by the water loss incident, our SERVPRO professionals have strategies and equipment to safely dry these documents to return them to your building once the restoration has completed.

Ideally, our SERVPRO professionals would strive to reach the emergency in your building promptly enough to remove these stored records from the area before the water damage could affect them.

When the documents and records have gotten affected by water damage, we have strategies that can help to preserve the information and the physical copy of the document itself. Freeze drying equipment flash dries these documents inside of a vacuum, which can protect the ink on the pages and keep them from smearing or becoming illegible.

Our Experts Can Help You Restore Your Flood Damaged Furniture In Hampton

11/5/2018 (Permalink)

We can extract the water, clean the dirt, dry the structure, and perform necessary repairs.

Commercial Restoration Services In Hampton To Salvage Your Furniture

Commercial flood damage restoration services are meant to help a business to return to its normal operations after the disaster. To get your business to pre-damage condition, you need to act quickly and minimize further damage, get the dirt removed from the building and have the damaged areas repaired. We are going to look at how we can help you restore the furniture of your Hampton business after the unfortunate water event.

When our SERVPRO technicians arrive at your Hampton business to perform commercial flood damage restoration, we have to find out if the property is safe to re-enter. We also have to evaluate the damage and record everything since your insurance provider may need a report before making any compensation. When restoring your furniture, we must inspect to find out what is restorable and what is unrestorable. Sometimes, it is not the water that causes all the damage; excess humidity can also cause some degree of destruction.

Where possible, we can move the furniture to a dry location to enhance the drying process. If the furniture cannot be moved because of its weight or any reason, we place a wood block or aluminum foil under the legs. By doing that, we prevent contact with the wet carpets. If upholstered furniture was wholly submerged in the water, its fabric coverings may form favorable conditions for mold growth and become hard to salvage. They can be saved if it was a slight flood, so, we separate colored items from the upholstery fabrics to limit chances of color bleeding.

Our SERVPRO technicians hose off the dirt and mud from furniture before drying can take place. Drying the wooden items under the direct sun is not a good idea since wood is likely to warp. To speed up the drying process, we can disassemble drawers, doors, and back panels. In case they are stuck, we wait for the wood to dry and shrink before taking them off.

Call SERVPRO of The Seacoast when you need to return your business to its normal operations after facing any size disaster. We can extract the water, clean the dirt, dry the structure, and perform necessary repairs. To get an immediate response from an industry leader, call (603) 433-4300.

Any Commercial Water Damage Jobsite in Hampton Could Contain Structural Hazards

7/14/2018 (Permalink)

Your construction company office needs to be hazard free for you to be able to safely meet with potential and current clients. Call SERVPRO.

SERVPRO Technicians Arrive on the Damage Scene Quickly to Help Prevent Any Secondary Damages From Forming

Having your construction company's office located on the first floor of a multi-level office complex in the center of Hampton has its advantages and potential risks. The advantages include easy access to the ground level making it easier to move large items in and out. One major setback to being on the bottom floor has to do with the law of gravity. Any problems that take place on floors above you can potentially negatively affect your office as well. If a water leak takes place on any of the floors above your level, the moisture will be pulled down the building by gravity. When water pours into your office from above, several problems can take place.
Any time excessive moisture gets into a structure, it can create various safety hazards to exist inside the building. The first step in dealing with every commercial water damage job in Hampton is to inspect the area for the presence of safety hazards. For example, water coming from the ceiling can cause light fixtures to fill up and short out. Water conducts electricity, so if electrical wiring or light fixtures get wet, it can be dangerous.
Despite the electrical hazards, water can also cause structural components to fall apart and create risks. When certain materials get saturated, they lose their structural integrity. Materials that make up your ceiling such as drywall can break and fall creating safety hazards for your employees. Wet drywall can also fall into gas pipes and create a leak. If any of these conditions exist inside your place of business, we block off the area to foot traffic.
If the water coming from offices above yours collects on top of your drywall ceiling, our SERVPRO technicians drill drain holes into the material to let the moisture leak out, hopefully preventing saturation. However, other problems resulting from water that make your structure dangerous are not mitigated as easily. Moisture can cause particle board subfloors to weaken creating falling hazards. Broken glass and other debris created by the water leaking and coming downstairs can also present hazards for our SERVPRO team and your employees.
Before beginning any work, our SERVPRO professionals repair any hazards or block off the area until the problem gets fixed. We strive to ensure the safety of your workplace throughout the entire restoration process. If you ever see safety hazards inside your office after a water leak, call SERVPRO of The Sea Coast at (603) 433-4300 any time.

Expert Restoration Of Retail Water Damage In Historic Hampton

6/8/2018 (Permalink)

The team at SERVPRO is ready to roll to your water damaged building.

When water damage affects your business, call SERVPRO for restoration

Nearly four hundred years after the township’s charter, Hampton remains a vibrant community and beachside destination. Local retailers, restaurants, lodging, and other enterprises depend on both local and visitor traffic daily. Downtime connected to water loss affects business sustainability. Working with an established restoration company eases concerns about permanent damage to the property and business relationships.

Our town is a one-of-a-kind, as is your business situated in a historical Hampton building. Water damage is a challenge wherever it strikes, but when the structural components and contents of affected premises carry the weight of more than a century of tradition everyone stands to lose. Our highly-qualified technicians employ up-to-date methods, equipment, and products to ensure continuity in the community as we restore your business investment.

The water damage in a commercial building can have an immediate cause like broken plumbing, and then reveal longer-term issues found when SERVPRO project managers complete an in-depth assessment. We begin removing water with pumps or industrial-strength wand extractors. As those tasks get underway, our team takes moisture readings of structural elements and scans for hidden recesses that contain water. The data noted helps us determine drying goals and also helps locates spaces where we need to release the water and expose the dampness behind walls, under floors, or above ceilings.

Once the now visible water exits your business's spaces, SERVPRO stages air movers, heaters, and dehumidifiers to regulate moisture. Our crew members use their combines experience and knowledge of typical moisture levels of a broad range of building materials and contents to guide the progress. A balance of temperature, ambient humidity, and air movement comes together to normalize any excess moisture found in your business. We revisit decisions about the spacing and operation intensity of the drying equipment and make our best effort to contain our work so that your business can remain open for commerce or customer services to some degree during restoration.

If the current crisis and vestiges of past water damage remain even partially unresolved, you risk progressive deterioration of supporting structures, fixtures, and decor. Unabated water harm also threatens your commercial property with the possibility of microbial growth, including dry rot of the heirloom floors and woodwork that lend such charm to your retail or other space.

The team at SERVPRO of The Seacoast has years of experience in dealing with water damage in a business setting -- both current and the footprints of former unmitigated water issues. To improve the chance of a successful outcome, contact us at (603) 433-4300 immediately upon discovery of water losses.

Commercial Flood Damage Cleanup

Heavy rains in Hampton can wreak havoc on your Hampton bookstore. Not only do water and books not mix, but floodwaters getting into your structure can cause damage to the building itself and cause you to have to shut your doors for a time while you clean up. You cannot always avoid these things from happening, but you can at least prepare for such a disaster by storing things such as important documents in sealable plastic bins up and away from the floor.

If you experience commercial flood damage inside your Hampton business, you need the assistance of professionals with the cleanup and repairs. SERVPRO are the ones you should call. Our crews disinfect, clean and dry out your building using the latest in technology and tools. Training, high-powered equipment, and experience make us the company to trust with your valuable merchandise and the integrity of your building.

We use truck-mounted pumps to extract any standing water, and place fans and dehumidifiers to dry your property quickly to prevent additional damage like mold growth. Moisture meters are also used to keep track of the moisture content in your structure to ensure that we get the levels back down to normal. After all the moisture is removed, we can start any restoration of merchandise, plus demolition, and reconstruction of your building if it is needed.

Dehumidifiers, heat, and fans are used in the drying process and get all the moisture out of your structure. We monitor these devices daily and move them around to ensure the fastest drying time. The combination of air and heat movement helps us get any moisture out of the walls and floors as well. Our dehumidifiers remove the moisture from your building.

SERVPRO of the Seacoast work efficiently and quickly so that you can open the doors of your bookstore again and not lose much business in Exeter, Greenland, or Portsmouth.
