SERVPRO® Provides Fire Sprinkler Water Damage Cleanup

Water damage is often small-scale, from pipe leaks or plumbing issues, but accidental sprinkler discharges are another cause that can cause setbacks for Merrimack businesses. While sprinklers are essential for preventing fire damage spread, water damage from a compromised system or accidental activation can quickly lead to mold and structural damage.

Restoration professionals at SERVPRO can provide water restoration for Merrimack businesses at any time of the day or night. They can respond within hours of a call to inspect damage and offer repair cost estimates. This firm’s availability aims to lower business downtime after a disaster and kick-start repairs after a business suffers damage.

Maintaining a Commercial Sprinkler System

While accidents can happen anytime, there are some tactics that staff and entrepreneurs can use to lower the risk of sprinkler-related water damage:

  • Examine gauges, valves, backflow preventers, and alarm switches yearly.
  • Inspect the pipes every five years.
  • Sprinkler heads require changing at least once every 20 years.
  • Areas that experience frequent high temperatures should have high-heat sprinkler heads installed.

For more information on commercial fire sprinkler requirements, check the National Fire Protection Association’s Code 25 for more details on sprinkler system maintenance and safety.

If a sprinkler discharge occurs in the dining area of a restaurant, SERVPRO technicians can perform restoration tasks like:

  • Wiping down and using extractors on wet surfaces, upholstery, drapes, and carpet.
  • Setting up air movers and desiccant dehumidifiers after extraction to dry the space.
  • Establishing containment zones with polyurethane sheeting to streamline drying.

SERVPRO Prevents Further Damage When Your Merrimack Business Suffers Water Damage

Commercial water mitigation services are essential in returning a business to normalcy. For instance, if a hotel suffers water damage from a burst pipe, it can impact the business negatively. A disruption in operations can occur, costly repairs may be needed, and sometimes there can be a loss of inventory.

Business owners in Merrimack need commercial water mitigation services such as those offered by SERVPRO whenever unfortunate events occur. We understand the importance of having a quick response to restore your business to its pre-damaged state effectively, and as a result, we have come up with various steps to do the job right.

The first step that our restoration technicians take is to stop the source of the water. Then, we assess to determine the extent of the damage and check whether there was any damage to the inventory, electrical systems, HVAC systems, and the building structure.

When we have a clear picture of the damage, our SERVPRO technicians formulate an action plan. Usually, the next step is to extract water from the building. The following are some of the methods we use during water extraction:

  • Portable extractors: we use them to extract water from upholstery, carpets, and other surfaces.
  • Truck-mounted extractors: They have a powerful vacuum that makes them suitable for removing a large amount of water.
  • Submersible pumps: Our SERVPRO technicians place them at the building's lowest point and are typically used to remove water from crawl spaces and basements. Water is channeled out of the building through a connected hose.
  • Injectidry systems: They use a combination of heat and pressure to remove water from porous materials. We usually use them to dry hard-to-reach surfaces, ceilings, and walls.

We are ready to use dehumidifiers, fans, and other specialized equipment to dry the affected surfaces. Conditions for mold growth and further damage are eliminated through moisture removal. Before we ensure the building is safe for occupancy, we clean, sanitize, and repair the affected areas.

As a company, SERVPRO of Merrimack is Faster to Any Size Disaster and can get your business back to normal within the shortest possible. Call (603) 262-9293 for professional and stress-free restoration services.

8/9/2022 (Permalink)

Inside of clothing store Protecting the contents of your fire damaged shop requires dozens of decisions. But SERVPRO can help!

Fire Damage Restoration for Contents 

Restoration and recovery after a fire in your shop can be overwhelming. Without a clear place to begin, the situation can continually worsen. Choosing the experience and fast response of SERVPRO professionals can help to protect the inventory and structure from more significant post-fire effects.  

The Benefits of a Quick Inspection

Beginning fire damage restoration for Merrimack boutiques always starts with evaluating the loss and the physical impact on structural elements, contents, and the environment. Our experienced production management inspects all impacted areas of the building for:

  • Odors
  • Secondary damages
  • Condition of contents
  • Salvageability
  • Need for off-site recovery

Relocating At-Risk Items

The destructive properties of post-fire effects can directly impact the contents and wares of the shop. When physical damage has not yet occurred, it is possible to relocate these items to a clean and safe area of the business to prevent avoidable harm.

Cleaning Objects On-Site

A desirable outcome for business owners for boutiques and shops is light and minimal cleaning needed to return their wares and inventory to their original condition. In some situations, establishing a staging area in an undamaged portion of the property allows a clean and stable location for surface cleaning and content evaluation. 

Moving Contents to Our SERVPRO Warehouse

When on-site cleaning and restoration is impossible, we have advanced restoration strategies available off-site at our SERVPRO warehouse. With tools like submersion tanks, ESPORTA Wash Systems, and deodorization chambers, fire and smoke damage does not have to destroy your shop's inventory, contents, and other valuable assets.

Protecting the wares and contents of your shop requires dozens of decisions between what is salvageable, what can be cleaned without relocation, and when more advanced restoration is needed. You can count on the fast mitigative response of SERVPRO of Merrimack to help when you call (603) 262-9293.

Shops Stay Open after Water Damage with SERVPRO's Help

As a boutique owner, you know that creating a feeling of warmth and luxury for your customers is essential. You have likely spent a long time getting your premises decorated and furnished to make just the right first impression. That is why water damage is so frustrating. It only takes one broken pipe or big storm to harm your enterprise and leave you unable to serve your customers.

Many boutiques have beautiful carpet that is part of the ambiance. In the event of commercial water damage to your Amherst boutique, water removal is likely at the forefront of your mind. After all, you do not want to pay out for a whole new carpet if you can avoid it.

Is it possible to save a rug from water damage?

In our many years of experience, we have found that the key to successful carpet restoration is rapid water extraction before we start drying. We equip our IICRC-certified technicians with free-standing, truck-mounted, and submersible pumps capable of handling even high volumes of water. The volume and location of the pooling water dictate our actions.

We work carefully to prevent delamination during water removal. Delamination occurs when primary and secondary carpet backing become separated. It is much harder to save a carpet once delamination occurs. Commercial grade glued-down carpeting typically lifts and requires replacement.

After extraction is complete, we turn our minds to drying. We use a combination of carefully positioned air movers and fans to encourage evaporation and dry out your carpet. We also use dehumidifiers to lower the humidity in your boutique and hasten the drying process. Reducing the RH relative humidity in the space also protects the sensitive equipment and wares from moisture damage.

Do not pay to replace your boutique carpet quite yet. Instead, call SERVPRO of Merrimack at (603) 716-9246 for help and advice.

Can Water Damaged Documents be Restored in Merrimack?

wet pages of paper that are drying Document drying capability is necessary when mitigating a commercial water damage situation. Our trained technicians have the expertise to help.

Drying Records and Storage Contents in Your Merrimack Office

With so many offices fitting into smaller plaza properties throughout Merrimack, many owners have had to get creative with storage and hard copies of documentation. With groundwater and moisture being such a common issue with homes and commercial properties throughout the Northeast, storage of these documents and contents in basement areas can often lead to unexpected damages. Recovering from these effects requires a team of professionals adequately trained in the restoration of water-damaged documents and contents, which requires both specialized equipment and the experience of our trained IICRC-Certified restoration technicians.

Many business owners do not realize the ramifications or consequences of a wet basement until the water damage has spread throughout the entire Merrimack office space. Without the experience to successfully and entirely protect and dry damaged documents and paperwork, owners often do more harm than good to these affected contents. Our SERVPRO team has on-site and off-site solutions for recovering damaged records affected by a wet basement.

When our SERVPRO professionals first arrive at your plaza office building, we work quickly to identify the source of the moisture in the area. We must dry out the water damaged areas of your building and set up the appropriate approach to prevent the same situation from occurring again in the immediate future through sealing off vulnerabilities for moisture to penetrate the basement or identifying water leaks or breaks in plumbing moving through this portion of the building.

Freeze drying is an effective approach to completely removing moisture from affected records and documents without allowing them to become too badly damaged as they would with conventional cleaning approaches. With many of these documents getting written with pen ink, moisture can cause these words to bleed on the pages if the situation does not get addressed quickly. Best of all, we have the means of freeze drying with a mobile unit, ensuring that your documents do not have to leave the vicinity to get restored.

Quick drying damaged documents can be an effective means of protecting your records and documents damaged in basement storage when moisture and dampness get out of control. You can count on our SERVPRO of Merrimack professionals to make these damaging effects “Like it never even happened.” Give us a call anytime at (603) 262-9293.

Restoring Water Damages to Your Mt. Vernon Apartment Building

outside view of multistory apartment Water damage can quickly affect several properties at the same time in an apartment building due to all the rooms and areas being connected.

Help Keep Tenants Safe by Calling SERVPRO When Water Damage Affects Your Apartment Buildings

Your Mt. Vernon apartment building is home to several families that directly count on you to handle problems as they arise. As the building owner and landlord to those leasing properties inside, most of the facility's maintenance falls to you directly or to whomever you choose as a subcontractor for the tasks. You might not always be in preventative maintenance mode on your building, but failure to keep up with the plumbing inside can create some costly problems for you.

Water damage to your Mt. Vernon building can happen in several ways. You can have a compromised roof that buckles under the weight of heavy snowfall and ice that has not melted away. Appliances like washing machines in a central location for tenant use can overflow or malfunction. Pipes can freeze and burst or become too old to handle the fluctuating pressures and disconnect. Any of these scenarios can result in water damage to the building, but not only this, you have to clean the mess quickly before it affects the families living in the building directly.

Since all rooms and areas connect via walls, ceilings, or floors, it is not hard to see how a water emergency might quickly affect several properties simultaneously. In these situations, restoration specialists like our SERVPRO team can significantly reduce the damage that could occur and work fast to restore what has already happened.

Locating the source of the problem is the first step in our SERVPRO technician's initial assessment of the situation. If the problem was the plumbing, the water gets turned off to that section until the plumbing can get repaired. A hole in the roof can be boarded up or tarped to prevent further element interference while the restoration occurs, and the area is prepped for reconstruction.

With so many families and tenants to think about in your Mt. Vernon apartment building, call the restoration specialists you can trust. SERVPRO of Merrimack has an emergency response team that is available 24/7 to handle any water emergency that you might have. Give us a call today at (603) 262-9293.

What Factors Allow Mold to Grow in My Locker Room Showers?

a locker room in a gym Humidity in locker rooms needs to be monitored continuously. Should mold develop, call SERVPRO to assess and remediate the mold damage.

Commercial Mold Remediation for Merrimack Gyms Stops Microbes in Their Tracks

Locker room showers in gyms and Merrimack public facilities need to take mold remediation efforts seriously to keep the area safe and comfortable for customers. However, there are times when the microbial growth is more than daily custodial cleaning can fully mitigate.

SERVPRO provides mold remediation for Merrimack businesses in need of a higher standard of cleanliness. The Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC)-certified crews to perform mold mitigation services as well as remove any water damage that may be contributing to mold growth on your property.

How Mold Accumulates in Locker Room Showers

  • Ventilation limitations. Ventilation is a must for keeping relative humidity below levels that are ideal for mold growth. Water vapor from showers instead clings to porous surfaces like towels, rugs, and cleaning brushes. Keep porous items clean and dry to prevent the spread of mold.
  • Excess humidity. Too much humid air combined with hours of hot water usage a day can quickly lead to mold growth—lower mold risk by setting the AC lower or investing in dehumidifiers for your facilities.
  • Dirt buildup. Mold is not an indicator that your showers are dirty. Still, it cannot grow without the right environment and consumption of organic material like dust and dirt—clean showers daily, especially in hard-to-reach areas like ceilings and grout. 

SERVPRO’s Sanitation Measures

Disinfection is key to eliminating or at least limiting, microbes and mold spores. After securing a mold-affected area for cleanup, SERVPRO technicians use a variety of tools to combat shower mold, including:

  • Agitating brushes to remove loose mold deposits
  • HEPA filter air scrubbers for catching and removing spores floating in the air
  • Wet cleaning with detergent solutions targeted at curbing microbial growth

Commercial Water Damage Merrimack – Wet Carpet and a Leaky Window

Imagine the surprise a guest of a motel recently received when he and his wife got out of bed one morning. Not only did the couple not get a lot of sleep due to the lightning and thunder the previous night, but the couple was also surprised to step onto a wet carpet. The carpet was soaked, and the water was cold as well. Fortunately, their clothes and suitcases were not on the floor.

SERVPRO responds to commercial water damage incidents in Merrimack and surrounding areas. The motel owner faced refunding the night's charges to the couple and taking that particular room off the availability list for at least a week.

Cleaning & Drying the Carpet

While the storm had moved on, there was still the wet carpet, and of course, the window needed to be repaired. It was not obvious where the leak occurred; however, the occupants recall a driving rainstorm that seemed to come straight at the window.

SERVPRO can respond to situations like these on a 24/7 basis and usually within 4 hours of calling our office. While the owner is making arrangements to have the window looked at, we can remove water and moisture from the carpeted floor using a weighted extractor. A weighted extractor is a heavy-duty water vacuum with a technician riding on it to add extra weight to squeeze every last drop of water from the flooring material.

After removing all of the water damage, we introduce air movers and dehumidifiers to dry out the room further and return the motel room to normal humidity levels. SERVPRO understands the urgency of completing the work quickly in cases like these as well as the need to minimize disruption to other guests. We can work closely with the motel manager to minimize any disruption as much as possible.

Spores can easily dislodge and spread during a DIY clean-up, but our team understands best practices to get the project done right the first time. These are some techniques that you may see us using during mold remediation:

  • Containment – Sealing off areas where mold is detected helps keep spores from traveling through the air and into unaffected zones. 
  • Negative Air Pressure – Setting up negative air pressure within a containment zone helps keep spores from spreading. We might use HEPA filtration to pull spores and other airborne contaminants from the area, which leaves clean, fresh air behind.
  • Vent and Door Sealing – Before starting remediation, doors and air vents in other areas of the business must be sealed off to prevent spores from spreading. This includes the HVAC system, which should get turned off the minute mold growth is suspected.
  • Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) – Along with foot cover, our crew wears protective coverings, eye protection, and breathing apparatus to ensure safety throughout the mold remediation at your business property. Wearing the PPE during clean-up and removing them before re-entering clean zones helps to prevent further tracking. 

Never spread mold spores unknowing with DIY commercial mold remediation. Contact SERVPRO of Merrimack at (603) 262-9293, and we can send our mold specialists out as soon as possible.

With Decades of Experience, SERVPRO Technicians Offer High-Quality Commercial Fire Damage Restoration Services in Milford

Milford is a small town on Souhegan River in Hillsborough County, New Hampshire. It is the manufacturing and retail center of a multi-town area that people unofficially refer to as the Souhegan Valley. According to the 2010 census, the area is home to a population of 15,115.

According to the 2010 census, Milford, which is the town center, has a population of 8,835. Located between routes 13 and 101A of New Hampshire, the town is defined as the Milford Census-Designated Place.

The Town's History

In 1794, Milford separated from Amherst. Similar to several towns Named Milford across America, the name comes from a mill on Souhegan River that people had built on a ford.

Before the town was established, the location was home to many granite quarries. People used the stones harvested from these quarries to build pillars for the United States Treasury located in Washington, D.C. At the back of a $10 American bill, one can clearly see the pillars. However, if the bill is redesigned, it is not clear if the pillars can remain. Nicknamed "The Granite Town," the town has only one small operating quarry as of 2017.

In the 19th century, the town developed many successful textile mills like most riverside towns in New England. In the Second World War, the industry left New England. However, Milford continued to be the commercial and retail center for most surrounding towns. Some of the leading employers included:

  • Hendrix Wire and Cable Inc., a cable manufacturer
  • Cirtronics Corporation, a contract manufacturing company
  • Hitchiner Manufacturing Co., a casting company

A firm in Milford known as Alene Candles was among the first companies in 2018 to apply "conscious leadership" in the manufacturing production setting.

The town also hosts the Milford State Fish Hatchery. Besides, the town is also home to Souhegan Valley Boys and Girls Club. The club was built on the previous property of the private theater American Stage Festival, which is now bankrupt. 

Most slaves who managed to escape from slavery sought refuge on the Underground Railroad at Milford. The town was also home to Harriet E. Wilson, who published "Our Nig” a semi-autobiographical novel. In 1859, she also published "Sketches in the life of a Free Black," It is the first novel published by an African-American woman in the country.

The Milford Oval's shape is not oval or square but triangular. In American parlance, the name "square" denotes a town irrespective of geometry. The name "oval" has been in existence since the 19th century when it was oval. The town center is the Oval, with its centerpiece being the Pillsbury Bandstand, and its backdrop is the Souhegan River. The Oval's traffic flow has been a series of three one-way streets and three intersections for many years. This results in an uncommon argument where vehicles going into the Oval have the right of way over vehicles that turn left to go through the Oval. In the 1980s, this treatment was reversed to conform to traffic norms where vehicles in the Oval have the right of way over those entering the Oval. 

Milford culture

The town is famous for its early October "Pumpkin Festival." The event, which attracts more than 35,000 people, is held on a three-day weekend between Friday and Sunday. The festival has various attractions, which include:

  • Music stages
  • Carved pumpkin lighting
  • Food trucks
  • Wine tasting
  • Craft air
  • Haunted trail
  • Fireworks around the Oval

The Geography of Milford

According to the United States Census Bureau, Milford covers 66 kilometers square (25.3 sq mi). 65 kilometers square (25.2 sq mi) of the total area is land while 0.26-kilometer square (0.1 sq mi) is water, which covers 0.24 percent of the town. Souhegan River drains Milford town. The highest point of the town is 248 meters (814 feet) above sea level. This is close to its western border on Boynton Hill summit.

The town's demographics

Can Water Stains Get Removed From My Amherst Conference Room Carpet?

Close-up Photo Of Flooded Floor In Kitchen From Water Leak SERVPRO of Merrimack at (603) 262-9293 serves the local community as the go-to choice for commercial water damage repair.

SERVPRO technicians bring the equipment and cleaning agents to local Amherst businesses to restore them from any size water damage

Handling the restoration of an Amherst property after commercial water damage, even when attempts have already been made at cleanup, is something SERVPRO does best. The use of improper cleaning solutions or methods can make water stains worse or, in some cases, permanent. The technicians can test the fibers of the carpet and scope the existing issues to determine an accurate restorability factor.

What is the Best Method for Commercial Water Damage Repair of a Wet Conference Room?
SERVPRO techs perform several actions before they decide on a method for commercial water damage repair in an Amherst office. Conference rooms frequently have large tables, numerous chairs, and often carpet. Some of the most common primary tasks are:
    •    Extracting the water  
    •    Removing the chairs and placing the table on blocks
    •    Scoping the room for seepage under the carpet into the subfloor
    •    Double-checking for wicking of water in the walls
    •    Carpet fibers get tested to determine if dye bleeds or shrinkage is a possible issue

There is never a single method for water cleanup. The techs take each structural element and determine the activity for the best outcome. For example, the sheetrock may wick water, and the techs can remove the baseboards and cut only the saturated part of the sheetrock off, leaving the majority of the wall intact. This assists with drying the room and makes the needed cosmetic repairs quicker than replacing an entire portion of the wall, saving the property owner the cost of replacement and assisting in reopening the business faster.

SERVPRO of Merrimack at (603) 262-9293 serves the local community as the go-to choice for commercial water damage repair. The certified technicians work fast and efficiently to get your property restored and your business back to normal operations as quickly as possible.

Hire SERVPRO to Restore Your Merrimack Building After a Water Spill

How Quickly Can You Remove the Water?

The speed of commercial water removal in Merrimack businesses, a café for example, depends on the amount of water present, the size of the facility, and how long it rested inside the building. Once they have this information, SERVPRO technicians can work as quickly, and safely, as possible to remove water and moisture from the business.

Where in the Business Do You Start?

Our technicians begin where the water is at its deepest. Since there are drains in the kitchen and other food prep sections, water from a spill often pools in the area for customer seating. To remove it, team members bring in pumps for high water and extractor wands for amounts just covering the surface.

If there is a carpet present, technicians use a heating element built into the extractor wands to carefully begin drying it while damaging the surface or softening the glue holding it in place. The heating element is also very useful for drying wood flooring to prevent splintering or cracking of the individual floorboards.

Next, our technicians remove water from the kitchen and serving areas. They use long-handled squeegees to pull it out from underneath appliances, racks, and counters. For remaining trace amounts and to dry the underside of the property, team members install air movers to generate a warm flow of air that quickly forces moisture off surfaces and into the air.

Is That All That Is Needed?

Not yet. SERVPRO technicians finish the task with a moisture meter to check the humidity level in the air. If the level is above normal, they use dehumidifiers to draw moisture out of the air for disposal into the nearest drain. Our goal is to quickly restore the functionality of your establishment.

We Get You Back In Business In Merrimack After A Flood

2/21/2020 (Permalink)

A ceiling caving in from flood damage Torrential rains can cause water to leak into your home causing significant damage after a storm. Call us right away to prevent further damage.

Commercial Flood Damage Repair In Merrimack May Include Carpet Cleaning

If a big snowstorm hits the Merrimack area this winter, your construction company's office could suffer. When snow from the storm starts to melt it can turn into liquid H2O and find its way into your building, possibly causing you extensive commercial flood damage. Once your building materials and the contents inside your office get wet or saturated, problems can take place.

During a commercial flood damage project in Merrimack, moisture could have entered from the lower door seals after the snow melts. If this ever occurs, your carpets could get negatively affected. If your carpeting inside your business's office gets saturated, it could start to delaminate and have to be removed and replaced. In other situations, we can save your floors by extracting them and setting up drying equipment to remove all of the moisture.

Once the flood damage restoration work has been completed, professional restoration companies such as SERVPRO end the process with a final clean that can include various carpet cleaning methods. After your carpeting in your construction office gets wet, it can attract soils to it. Carpets can also get stained by dirt being in the water that entered from the outdoors.

When cleaning carpets after other restoration steps are complete, our SERVPRO technicians can start by moving all of the furniture within affected areas. For example, the chairs and desks inside your office may have to be moved if the carpets underneath them got wet and soiled. Next, we vacuum the entire area that we are planning on cleaning. Vacuuming can help remove dry soils that are on the surface of the carpet, such as sand, hair, or carpet fibers.

Once the furniture gets moved, and the area gets vacuumed, we then pre-treat areas that contain stains or high traffic areas with industrially specialized solutions. In some cases, this can involve scrubbing the stain with a brush and allowing the chemical time to set before cleaning. Next, we can begin the cleaning process using a carpet and upholstery detergent with a steam cleaner. After cleaning the area, we then run the machine on the carpets again with a rinse solution.

If you ever need professional help with your construction office after your building materials get wet, call SERVPRO of Merrimack at (603) 262-9293 24/7. We're Faster To Any Size Disaster.

Commercial Fire Cleanup and Restoration In Merrimack

When a fire damages the interior of your Merrimack, Amherst, Milford, or Mt. Vernon multi-use commercial building, the aftermath feels overwhelming. Your own enterprise’s space and contents suffer smoke and soot damage as do the retail, restaurant, and office space you rent to other businesses. Fortunately, structural cleaning and deodorizing in the 21st century is a highly-developed and continuously improving process, our team rapidly clearing away soiling and odors from most building materials and surfaces to reinvigorate your business.

Contents Cleaning Evolves

Similar cleaning success with the many soft items among the smoke and soot-damaged contents of your flagship location in the past was less certain. With a heavy heart, you might have agreed to send the banquette cushions, wall hangings, window coverings, table linens, and other soft contents of your destination restaurant to the landfill. Before you relinquish the custom-made decor that defines your bistro’s ambiance, consider this. We impressively improved the odds of favorable outcomes for commercial soft contents fire cleanup in Esporta with our investment, the premier textile restoration system available to the disaster recovery industry. 

Esporta Represents a Soft Contents Cleaning Revolution

Unlike a traditional industrial washing machine, Esporta’s design holds soiled items stable during processing, reducing incidental and friction-based damage. Specially formulated cleaning additives are phosphate-free and highly efficient, using half the water of conventional equipment to deliver 90 percent of soft contents back to pre-smoke and soot loss appearance and function. The innovative system arrives at these remarkable results through a computer-controlled, multi-stage process. It employs a combination of hydraulic action and environmentally friendly detergents to restore items to Food Grade Clean, removing 99 percent of contaminants.

Fire Damage Includes Water Loss and Bio-Contamination

Extinguishing a fire in your commercial space can leave filthy, Category 3 water, a broad range of toxic residues, and the chance of microbial infestation. The heat and structural damage can cause ruptures of pipes and subsequent backup of waste. The patented Esporta Wash System is scientifically proven to clean not only soot but also the residuals of water damage, food spoilage, sewage, water damage, and biohazards like molds, mildews, and waste-borne pathogens

Firefighting Equipment Esporta Cleaned

The First Responders, our brave FireFighters, are in the thick of things when extinguishing the blaze at your building. The Break-Out Gear that they don for protection against the heat, flames, soot, smoke, and water embeds with this contaminated debris. Many fire stations turn to SERVPRO to periodically Esporta Clean this protective equipment. The benefit of cleaning and sanitizing rather than tossing save our local municipalities expenses and keep our firefighters always looking sharp.

Fast Turnaround

Because we have eliminated the need for subcontractors and intermediaries for specialized soft content cleaning, we control the pricing, process, and speed of completion. Our team of Content Cleaning Technicians (CCT) embraces the Esporta technology, excited for the opportunities opening up to save you and your insurer time and money as we save your business property, one item at a time. 

Give SERVPRO of Merrimack the chance to transform the contents of your fire-damaged business back to “Like it never even happened,” with the cutting-edge Esporta system. Call (603) 262-9293 to explore how we can save your business without discarding thousands of dollars-worth of soiled textiles and other soft items.

Are Sump Pumps the Best for Damage in a Merrimack Store?

12/15/2019 (Permalink)

Wood counter of a store with the store shelves in the background. Water damage is nothing to play with, SERVPRO will walk you through every bit of the damage.

Let SERVPRO break down what your Merrimack store needs after water damage.

With a sprawling commercial property like a department store in Merrimack, substantial water loss incidents can quickly spread to affect a wide area of the building. As troublesome as this might seem, fast response to the emergency can limit the irreparable effect on your stock in the store and the possibility of restoring flooring and other shelving fixtures rather than tearing them out and letting our general contractors replace them. 

Many extraction tools can help in interior flooding scenarios where water removal for Merrimack department stores is vital. We strive to provide the best equipment for every disaster, and in many cases, the ideal tool for standing water loss incidents in your store is electric portable submersible pumps. These lightweight units boast a quiet, continual draw of standing water to a designated discharge point, allowing our SERVPRO team to gain control of a widespread water loss emergency effectively. However, sump pumps might not always be the best – or only – extraction equipment necessary to get the job done. 


While you can look to sump pumps to be a reliable option for any depth above two inches, even this small depth can still leave a substantial amount of water that air movers and dehumidifiers could spend weeks attempting to dry out. Instead, once down to the level where sump pumps can lose their prime, our SERVPRO technicians can switch to wet-vacs and light wands to remove the rest of the surface water. 


While standing water, in general, can be addressed by the portable electric pump, oversaturation of carpeting in the primary shopping areas of your store cannot get absorbed by this popular option. Instead, our professionals utilize weighted ride-on extraction units that can move consistently through the area. This approach is even more effective if our team can move racks of clothing, standalone shelves, and tables to other unaffected areas of the store to allow unhindered access for moisture removal.  

Your department store can need many things to look and feel like it did before the water loss incident, and our SERVPRO of Merrimack team is here to help. We have sophisticated equipment and drying tools to make water losses “Like it never even happened” when you call (603) 262-9293.

Commercial Flood Damage For Your Merrimack Business

When flooding occurs in Merrimack, many times the focus is on the residents who are displaced, and the damage done to their properties. However, many commercial buildings also suffer. Besides property damage and the possibly displaced employees, flooding in your jewelry store can create a loss of revenue and profits, damage to your inventory, a decrease in production and more.

Since you can’t stop the storms from coming, you should learn what to do to help safeguard your commercial structure in Merrimack from flooding and related losses. When the waters do come rushing in, and your building suffers flood damage, you need to enlist the help of a professional remediation company, such as SERVPRO. Our staff has the tools and training needed to help get your business back to looking the way it was before the flooding.

To protect your business, the first thing to do is to make sure you are covered. Commercial property insurance typically isn’t enough protection against flooding. Look over your policy and think about adding flood insurance.

When we arrive, the SERVPRO staff assesses the damages. In many flooding cases, we can remove merchandise and furniture as needed, such as jewelry and display cases in this case, to an off-site location while we restore the rest of the building. Truck-mounted pumps help us remove as much standing water as we can, then we can proceed with drying and restoring the rest of the building.

If your building is in a flood plain or low-lying area, you could be at a higher risk for flooding than those atop a hill. However, any location can possess vulnerabilities, and you should address any risks your building presents and shield it as much as you can against floods.

Floods aren’t always at record heights, but even small amounts of water getting inside can lead to damage. You can limit the destruction by sealing any weaknesses and cracks in your structure and adding a waterproofing layer to the building itself.

Make a plan as well in case a flood does occur. You can establish an emergency and plan to help protect your property, you and your employees including evacuation routes and offsite backup plans for any critical documents and data.

SERVPRO of Merrimack is always standing by to dry your business building in Amherst, Milford, or Mt. Vernon after flooding. Our crew can be reached whenever you need us by dialing (603) 262-9293, so do please don't hesitate to ask us for help.

How to Take the Headache out of Water Damage Remediation in Your Merrimack Business

Keep your patrons loyal to your superb coffee shop by never displaying the closed sign due to water damage. Contact SERVPRO immediately.

Restoring Water Damage that Threatens Your Merrimack Coffee Shop

While it takes a great deal of effort to keep your Merrimack coffee shop moving at the pace of its customers, it can often be the areas you least expect trouble to provide you with a profit halting incident. Facilities like the bathroom are amenities for both your customers and employees to utilize, but this area can also be prone to damage from misuse or vandalism. When fixtures break naturally or get intentionally broken in the bathroom, it is important to begin cleaning up the resulting water loss as promptly as possible.

As your bathroom area is likely primarily tile, water damage in your Merrimack coffee shop can be less widespread with a fast response. Our SERVPRO team is available 24/7 to provide quick mitigation tactics to reduce the penetration of this pooling water through grouted joints in the tile flooring and damage to the drywall also used in the construction of the room.

With a fast response to the situation, our team can begin sopping up the water from the affected areas to reduce the penetration through vulnerable points in the tile. As this flooring material gets designed to be impervious to water, drying solutions beginning from the moment that our SERVPRO team arrives can keep water damage from affecting subflooring and concrete beneath the tile.

Drywall can absorb moisture quickly, especially when the broken fixture forces water back into wall cavities. Identifying this moisture involves thermal imagery equipment. It does not take long for sheetrock to become oversaturated, so using tools like our air movers, dehumidifiers, and the injectidry system can help to quickly drop moisture levels in these affected areas to preserve materials when possible.

With a higher volume of customers that rely on your baristas every day, it is important to have skilled technicians working to get your doors open quickly once you discover water damage in the bathroom. From initial cleanup and drying to reconstruction and plumbing repair, let our SERVPRO of Merrimack specialists help you restore your business. Give us a call today at (603) 262-9293.

Some Ways to Avoid the Spread of Mold in Your Amherst Business

12/12/2018 (Permalink)

If mold affects your business environment, the damage can spread quickly. Contact SERVPRO for containment and remediation services.

Commercial Mold Remediation Experts in Amhurst Stress the Importance of Containment

If a slow water leak ever develops inside your Amhurst distribution center, unnoticeable problems can occur. If organic materials inside your place of business stay wet for more than two days, it is possible that you will need a professional commercial mold remediation company like SERVPRO. A fungus only needs an environment with normal room temperatures, an organic food source, and moisture to thrive. Over time fungi can grow bigger and bigger and potentially cause more damage to your warehouse. Once microbes activate inside a structure, commercial mold remediation becomes necessary to prevent future issues.
Once a fungus forms, it builds structures called hyphae that release reproductive spores into the air that can contaminate areas throughout the building. Our SERVPRO team knows that one major part of commercial mold remediation in Amherst is to inhibit spores from causing fungi to form in other areas than the initial source. The key to accomplishing this is to contain the affected area. The first step to any fungal mitigation project is to build a containment chamber around the part of your warehouse that is contaminated so that no spores or hazardous dust particles created during the work process gets put in the building's airflow system.
We know that being in the distribution business requires a clean environment because items are constantly coming in and out of the center and they travel to many different areas. Packages that get contaminated by hazardous particles could cause extensive liability for your business. Anytime a problem with fungi occurs inside your distribution center it is important that we work quickly so that none of your packages or things coming in and out get affected. We also take extra measures to help make sure that all of your packaging and sorting equipment stays unaffected by contaminants.
Once any contaminated sections of your distribution center get properly contained with chambers made out of heavy-duty plastic, we begin removing any materials that got affected by the fungi. If you ever happen to notice microbial contamination at one of your company's distribution facilities, call SERVPRO of Merrimack at (603) 262-9293 any day of the week.

What to Do When You Discover Mold Growing In Your Amherst Clothing Boutique

Mold Remediation Can Save Your Clothing Boutique in Amherst from Closing Permanently--Contact SERVPRO for Help

SERVPRO Works Hard to Keep Your Customers Shopping During the Mold Remediation

Mold is a common occurrence all over the country, and unfortunately, mold damage is something very real that can impact your business. While the back room of your clothing boutique is not typically a place customers would roam, having mold growing near your stock is never safe for business. Mold can cause health effects, and it can also bring a musty odor with it. Musty odors and new clothes do not go hand in hand, and it can turn customers off at a swift rate. Luckily, there is professional help nearby to deal with the small mold problem in the back room.

Our IICRC-certified technicians can handle the damaging mold on your Amherst property whenever it best suits you. We understand how important it is for you to keep the doors of your business open and we strive to be unobtrusive as possible while keeping the flow of your business natural. Our technicians are flexible and can work around your schedule, at all hours. If it is needed, we can work while your store is closed to keep out of the way during business hours.
Our SERVPRO technicians can section off the part of your store that has been infested with mold damage. It is essential to separate the area because mold spores become airborne once again when agitated and can then attach themselves to new surfaces. To be as thorough as possible, SERVPRO uses antifungal agents to eradicate mold spores.
After cleaning the mold, our technicians can employ the use of air scrubbers to neutralize the musty scent left behind. If dampness caused by water damage was the source of your mold problem, SERVPRO could use advanced equipment to dry out the area. Making sure the environment has been returned to standard levels of humidity helps reduce the chance of mold growing again.
If mold damage has struck your business, do not wait. Call SERVPRO of Merrimack at (603) 262-9293. 24/7 we can take your call and send our technicians to your property to get the remediation process started.

Commercial Water Damage from a Leaky Refrigerator in Your Amherst Deli

12/4/2017 (Permalink)

If you notice a leak in your commercial kitchen, call SERVPRO immediately to assess and remediate the damage.

SERVPRO Thoroughly Dries Your Commercial Space after Water Damage

Leaks in your commercial kitchen are not always indicative of a sink or dishwasher leak. A refrigerator that is faulty in your Amherst deli can be to blame, even if there is no water maker or an ice dispenser. A puddle of water inside or underneath the fridge indicates a problem which needs attention right away. Not only can it slow down your operations, but it can also halt them altogether if you do not have a properly working refrigerator to keep your foods fresh.

Commercial water damage is a serious problem since it creates a loss of money when you have to close up shop for a time or slow down operations. You rely on your Amherst deli to provide you with your daily living expenses, so you should contact us at SERVPRO right away if you realize you have a broken fridge. 

Most water damage we encounter comes from defective appliances or broken water pipes. These problems can flood your business fairly quickly, especially if you are not present when it begins. The amount of water that the leak puts into your building is significant, along with the source of the water.

With a leaking refrigerator, the water is clean, or category one. Clean water is treated water which does not contain waste products, so it is safe to work with and around. 

Once we have the source of the leak fixed and the standing water extracted, it is time to dry your structure out again. Using air movers positioned for optimal drying, we can have your shop dried back out quickly. SERVPRO technicians are trained on airflow and how the machines need to be placed so that the air is circulating in a circular pattern to dry the structure evenly.

For trying to dry areas, ventilation is essential. Walls are the most common areas that require ventilation. Slight wicking of water on walls near the baseboard is standard but does not necessarily mean water is inside the walls.

We remove the baseboards if water is inside the walls. We then drill a 1 ½” hole between each stud in the wall at the level of the baseboard. The holes are drilled through one side of the wall, so air is forced up into the wall cavities as it enters. We force air into the wall by attaching an air mover to a wall venting system.

SERVPRO of Merrimack ensures your building is thoroughly dry again before leaving the job. Businesses in the areas of Mt. Vernon, Merrimack, or Milford should call us right away at (603) 262-9293 if you have a water damage emergency.

Duct Work Maintenance in Merrimack Pays for Itself

Duct and Exhaust Maintenance Keep Businesses Hot or Not in Merrimack

SERVPRO Can Inspect, Clean, and Prepare Your HVAC Commercial System for the Winter Months Ahead

As the months finally start to cool, the HVAC duct work for every New Hampshire business needs inspection and maintenance. Lower temperatures at night in Merrimack mean that the metal duct walls begin to contract and expand with the changing seasons. Gaps form at the joints, and restraining brackets start to loosen.

Winterizing the duct work in your Merrimack business is usually a fairly quick process and saves money in heating costs every month. SERVPRO technicians are trained and have extensive experience in maintaining and repairing HVAC ducts; depending on the size and amount involved, we can inspect and repair each system over several days. For large warehouse or industrial facilities, our work crews can still get the job done in a week or less. Industrial structures that utilize furnaces for heating large volumes, puff back is always waiting to happen. Maintenance can keep your business in business.

In most cases, the repairs are relatively straightforward. To relieve pressure on the duct joints, our technicians tighten up the brackets holding the duct work in place. If the screws are beginning to pull out of the wood, we drill new holes and reset them. If tightening the ducts does not completely close the gaps, we bend the edges back into place, so the sections join tightly. For larger systems, it may be cheaper to replace the bent section than to spend time trying to repair it.

It is not just the cost savings that are important. If an interior wall is not heated properly, the bitter cold, we experience in January and February can freeze an inside pipe or flexible water line. When they burst or split, the flooding can quickly cause thousands of dollars in repair and restoration costs. If the spill happens over a weekend, business owners can open their doors on Monday to a disaster that may shut down their business for days or weeks.

Cooling temperatures mean that the HVAC system is dormant for many hours. It is the perfect time to contact us here at SERVPRO of Merrimack to inspect your duct work for maintenance and repair. To schedule an inspection, call us at (603) 262-9293 today.

Limiting Loss For Local Amherst Veterinary Clinic

7/3/2017 (Permalink)

Continue caring for your pet clients in a clean, great smelling office by calling SERVPRO when you have a fire on the premesis.

Our Trained SERVPRO Technicians Focus on Recovery and Not Just Replacement

Modern small animal clinics feature a growing array of electronic equipment to diagnose and treat their patients. As with other electricity-powered machines, veterinary medical tools have the potential to start fires through improperly wired connections or faulty or overloaded circuits. No matter the cause, SERVPRO restores your animal hospital after a fire.
One of the diagnostic devices catches fire, and commercial fire damage spreads through your Amherst veterinary clinic. Unfortunately for you and your patients, smoldering wiring ends office hours. Your staff stopped the fire quickly with a chemical extinguisher, but a thick and unpleasant smelling smoke moved throughout your facility, including surgical suites and recovery areas. Our highly-qualified technicians know how to clean up the fire residues completely and safely, and restore fresh ventilation so that your business of caring for animals continues.
The SERVPRO crew arrives and ensures the clinic HVAC system halts operation. Our experts inspect the ductwork and arrange for a thorough cleaning, removing as much soot as possible using brushes and powerful vacuums. Areas impossible to clean are sealed using professional products and techniques learned in Institute of Inspection, Cleaning, and Restoration Certification (IICRC) approved courses all our workers attend.
Surfaces covered with smoky and chemical extinguisher residues receive treatment appropriate to the characteristics of the coating deposited by the fire. Our crews use a systematic approach, spraying and wiping away the debris or carefully employing abrasive methods when the soot is sticky and difficult to remove. We understand your exam and treatment rooms must be sanitized, and your boarding kennels, offices, and lobby spaces require a restoration to preloss condition.
SERVPRO deodorization experts use one or more strategies to eliminate smoky smells. Animals are sensitive to the disturbing aroma left after a fire, necessitating comprehensive deodorization. We recommend removal of the damaged equipment's wiring as a first step and then use airborne deodorants. Thermal fogging, a procedure that requires a certified technician to complete, replicates the way the odors first pervaded and neutralizes them.
The medications and foods your office stocked before the fire are likely to be compromised by the smoke damage. We work with your insurer to make hard decisions about the supplies and treatments to be discarded. Our pledge is to have you back to caring for the community’s pet population swiftly.
SERVPRO of Merrimack helps you sort out the challenges an equipment fire poses for your veterinary practice. Call us at (603) 262-9293 as soon as your clinic is cleared by local authorities for fire restoration work.

Stay Calm And Call SERVPRO For Black Mold Remediation

4/21/2017 (Permalink)

When our mold remediation team arrives, they pinpoint the locations of suspected microbial outbreaks.

When Dealing with Black Mold Remediation, SERVPRO Will Help!

Say the words black mold and panic ensues. In reality, over 100,000 different types of mold spores potentially exist in commercial buildings. Rather than concentrating on the precise type of mold infesting your company, SERVPRO offers business owners a proven method for removing a current outbreak and limiting the recurrence of similar mold growth in the future.

The cleaning staff complains that black mold overruns your Merrimack health club. Streaks of fungal growth invade the locker room areas, particularly in the showers and changing areas. Their efforts are insufficient to eliminate the sight and odor of the mold. Individuals and families with children are the lifeblood of your swimming, workout, and running the complex. Keeping your staff and client safe is of the utmost importance. We know how to remediate microbial outbreaks, including issues with the dreaded black mold. Our staff comes to your rescue with efficient strategies to put mold concerns behind you.

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) developed a protocol to remove mold colonies in schools and commercial buildings safely and to minimize the likelihood they return. The mold remediation specialists at SERVPRO receive ongoing training in these methods. Following the instructions precisely gives commercial clients the best chance to conquer an ongoing mold problem. Our staff has not only the training but also the equipment necessary to effectuate proper EPA mold remediation. Routine cleaning procedures are inadequate to manage mold, especially within large areas and where HVAC systems threaten to spread the problem.

When our mold remediation team arrives, they pinpoint the locations of suspected microbial outbreaks. Containment of the colonies is crucial, and keeping the air in the remainder of the facility uncontaminated as the crew works to remove the mold is essential. We set up SERVPRO air scrubbers that use negative air pressure and a series of filters to trap offensive particles. The technicians remove the visible mold and investigate for hidden growth in other areas or within your club's venting, heating, and cooling systems. Sanitizing procedures follow. A search for the water source that fed the mold then ensues.

In a health club, water is everywhere. Our staff consults with our supervisors and you and your staff to ensure water drains away quickly, is properly treated in spas and pools, and that humidity levels remain below 60 percent. All of these efforts limit the possibility of mold regrowing within your facility.

Locally Owned Company with National Resources

Reach out to SERVPRO of Merrimack when black mold overwhelms your attempts to keep it in check. Operators await at (603) 262-9293, ready to schedule an inspection and consultation.
