SERVPRO® Facilitates the Necessary Water Restoration in Marlborough

Marlborough is known for its diverse economy with businesses in technology, healthcare, high-tech, and biotech industries. Names like ConnectM Technology, EKG Networking Inc., and CenterWell Home Health represent some of these businesses. Despite limited warehousing and logistics businesses, there are several self-storage facilities and distribution services in town, like Kane Self Storage, Acorn Self Storage, and Mintra USA. Water damage in such storage facilities leads to inconveniences and financial loss for several people. SERVPRO has the resources to mitigate losses.

Various situations lead to water damage in Marlborough warehouses. Therefore, a standard response for all incidents is not the ideal solution. SERVPRO helps customize water restoration to match the type of property and the prevailing conditions. 

Crucial steps after water damage

  • Stopping the flow and making temporary repairs
  • Professional assessment of damage extent
  • Limiting further water damage
  • Cleanup and remediation

A storage facility may have vast open spaces or several small units. Each of these situations presents some unique challenges. For example, removing water spread over a vast space can take significant time, posing a substantial threat to the items in storage. SERVPRO addresses this challenge by deploying advanced equipment, such as truck-mounted water extractors, which expedite water removal. 

Self-storage facilities such as Storelocal hold wide-ranging items, so water damage can vary from mild to extreme. The response mounted after an incident also determines the level of destruction. Our crews can perform thorough evaluations, helping identify timely actions that can limit damage to your client’s valuables. Specialized equipment such as thermal cameras help reveal moisture trapped behind walls. Thermo-hygrometers help measure the humidity and temperature levels, thus determining appropriate drying procedures.

Cleaning up a property after water intrusion is essential to restoration since it helps remove deteriorated materials, halt microbial growth, and manage odors - crucial in restoring preloss conditions. Our crews use different resources, including rotating brushes and biocides, to manage the cleaning process. 

SERVPRO of Marlboro / Concord helps ensure water damage in Marlborough premises is fully controlled. Call us at (978) 369-8003.

Steps To Restore Water Damage at a Marlborough Business

Finding out your Marlborough commercial property has water damage, perhaps from a hidden leak, can be frustrating. Managing contents and structural components damaged by the water can be challenging enough for you. Therefore, finding a professional team, like SERVPRO, to repair the damage is vital.

It is necessary to ensure you get prompt water damage repair for your Marlborough business establishment because the situation can worsen if ignored. The damage can ruin your operating equipment, and electrical systems, destroy your walls, floors, and ceilings, and cause microbial growth. Rapid response helps limit the damages. SERVPRO teams have the equipment and skills to prevent further losses and ensure complete restoration. Our teams are IICRC-certified, so you can trust us to meet your needs efficiently.

Steps that restore water damage:

  • Extract the water
  • Perform structural drying
  • Clean and sanitize the affected areas
  • Repair and restore affected surfaces and contents

Hidden leaks may cause slow water seepage, which is absorbed by structural materials like drywall, flooring, or the contents in your business establishment. Moisture absorption into materials can extend without your knowledge, causing massive damage.

Dealing With Damages from Hidden Moisture 

It is possible to determine the extent of moisture damage in a property. Detection requires devices, which include thermal imaging cameras, moisture sensors, and meters.

Possible areas where moisture may remain hidden:

  • The underside of the floorboards
  • Within wall cavities
  • Inside ceilings
  • Structural supports and frames

We provide air-moving equipment and dehumidifiers to manage moisture in the air, thus drying out all wet areas and ensuring normal humidity levels are attained. Drying varies depending on factors like building style, type, and construction. We constantly monitor the process to ensure accurate results.

SERVPRO of Marlboro / Concord offers rapid commercial water damage repair, so you can trust us to handle all damages. Call us at (978) 486-9868. We’re Faster To Any Size Disaster.

Using Air Movers for Office Water Restoration in Marlborough

11/22/2022 (Permalink)

Drying Wood Floors Our SERVPRO of Marlboro / Concord’s rapid response team is available 24/7!

Effective Tools for Office Water Restoration

After leaks or burst pipes, offices can become heavily damaged by migrating water. We specialize in Large Loss cleanup and drying services and have tools to help with disasters of any size.

Understanding the Type of Drying Tools Needed

Water restoration for Marlborough offices starts with having the right tools. We have several units that can help with efficient drying like:

  • Axial – Air movers like this address a broader focus area, ideal for moist environments or a more general drying needed on an entire room rather than specific wall points.
  • Centrifugal – Unlike axial units, these machines are meant to have a target area to focus blasts of warm air. As such, they require monitoring and regular movement to be most effective.
  • Low-Profile – These machines are of the centrifugal variety but are designed with a smaller and shorter frame to better address cavities underneath fixtures or damp pockets in confined spaces.

The Proper Placement of Air Movers

Knowing where to position air movers can be an important part of efficient drying for your office. The objective is always to limit the time you are stalled for production. We place units several feet away from the wall at a 45-degree angle, so the blasts of warm air can impact a greater surface, not blast back at the device and reduce its effectiveness.

How Do You Know How Many to Use?

The frequency of placing air movers and where they will be most effective is part of an ongoing evaluation of the drying process. Our proprietary software SERVPRO DryBook helps us to track the progress of evaporation and drying in a structure and use this data to make decisions in real-time about the frequency of air mover placement and which type of machine is best suited to achieve the desired moisture content range.

Your office will need several drying tools to return to preloss condition, and one of the most heavily used and required of these are air movers. When disasters strike, we have hundreds of these tools available to help your business when you call our SERVPRO of Marlboro / Concord team at (978) 486-9868. 

We Help Clean Flood Damage from Marlborough Facilities

7/27/2022 (Permalink)

Warehouse Flood Call SERVPRO of Marlboro / Concord at (978) 486-9868 for assistance from a professional remediation company.

Extensive Loss Tools for Marlborough Warehouses

Commercial properties are a staple of the industrious areas of Marlborough. When disasters like flooding occur in these facilities, the result can threaten the structure and your equipment. SERVPRO works fast to overcome the immediate impact of flood loss and protect the wares within the building from irreparable harm. 

Finding Where the Moisture Damage Is

One of the first steps in managing flood damage in Marlborough warehouses is finding where the moisture threats exist. The best approach involves several moisture sensors and thermal imagery cameras. With these devices, SERVPRO professionals can track moisture migration, even in wall systems, to ensure that drying and extraction efforts are focused in the right areas. 

Overcoming the Threat of Standing Water

Standing water is among the most challenging representations of flood damage in your warehouse or production facility. Not only does this put the equipment and wares at immediate risk of exposure and contamination, but the pooling is a formidable obstacle in managing other cleanup needs after flooding. Extraction can rely on several tools, especially in more extensive commercial settings:

  • Engine-Driven Pumps
  • Submersibles
  • Wet Vacuums
  • Light Wands
  • Drying Mats

Portable Power for the Whole Jobsite

Much of the equipment used by our SERVPRO professionals runs on electricity, from air movers and dehumidifiers to electric submersible pumps and heaters. When flooding reduces available power for restoration, we continue operating fully with our trailered generator. 

Widespread Dehumidification Solutions

Humidity and moisture management can be a significant undertaking in open areas, making the need for Large Loss equipment to manage these concerns critically. Trailered tools like our desiccant operate with quick-connect, lay-flat hose sections to spider out from the formidable outside unit to simultaneously grab moist air from several areas of the structure. 

SERVPRO of Marlboro / Concord professionals rely on several effective tools to help after flooding. We are here to restore your business when you need it. Call now at (978) 486-9868.

HVAC Remediation Is Essential to Fire Restoration in Marlborough

6/29/2022 (Permalink)

 smoke detector Fire damage? SERVPRO is prepared with restoration equipment and experienced technicians.

Our Marlborough Fire Restoration Crews Can Do It 

Cleaning up after a commercial fire in Marlborough can be a tricky business. It involves not only removing the residues fouling interior surfaces and neutralizing odorous smoke particles but also ensuring that fire-related issues are not spread to previously unaffected areas. Fortunately, SERVPRO can help with the latter by thoroughly cleaning your HVAC system.

SERVPRO’s fire restoration technicians in Marlborough are experts in inspecting, cleaning, and sealing fire-impacted HVAC ductwork. They have successfully restored the ventilation systems of countless local businesses, effectively mitigating their overall fire and smoke damage and facilitating the progress of smoke remediation and fire restoration efforts. However, before SERVPRO gets to work on these fire damage restoration tasks, workers determine:

  • How long the fire continued, how close it was to the furnace unit or HVAC vents if the system’s blower was on during the fire, and whether or not the ventilation network was affected by smoke
  • What type of smoke residues, if any, are present in the HVAC system, their severity, and how odorous they are
  • If the ventilation network’s filters are clean or need replacing and if the HVAC system needs to be disassembled for effective cleaning
  • What ducts are made of and how to most efficiently clean them
  • Whether or not mechanical components have been damaged and need to be repaired or replaced

After our skilled technicians have completed their inspection and know what needs to be done, they:

  • Clean air intakes and vent registers, restore or dispose of dirty filters, and vacuum up dust and smoke particles on ductwork surfaces.
  • Wash all interior HVAC surfaces with a general-purpose detergent and clean mechanical components
  • Seal and deodorize ventilation ductwork with a ULV fogger
  • Place smell-neutralizing beads in the system

So, if you ever need fire restoration work, don’t hesitate to call SERVPRO of Marlboro/Concord. We are always ready to help at (978) 486-9868.

Let The Drying Experts Help When Your Marlborough Business Is Awash In Wet Carpets

Red Carpet On Stairs Keep the Red Carpet Dry with SERVPRO's Help

Business As Usual in Marlborough After SERVPRO Dries Wetted Carpets

Even as little as an inch or two of water in a retail or office setting can soak a vast amount of carpeting. A company’s cleaning or housekeeping staff rarely has the capacity to respond to this degree of water damage, but the carpeting must be dried quickly. SERVPRO offers business owners the tools and technicians to dry out even acres of wet carpeting fast and efficiently.

A pipe burst in the wall you share with an adjoining shop, pouring water throughout your retail area. Water damage extends for thousands of square feet in your Marlborough furniture showroom. You need professional water restoration help immediately, and reaching out to us, and our crews of carpet drying specialists is the first step to putting this devastation behind you.

Even if the subfloor in a mall or shopping center is concrete, a brisk run-over with a carpet cleaner is inadequate to manage soaked floor coverings. SERVPRO has industrial-strength water extraction and drying equipment designed precisely for the crisis you face. Our technicians receive thorough and up-to-date training on water extraction techniques that remove the majority of the moisture but also protect the integrity of the carpeting.

Furnishings in your showroom must also be protected during the restoration and prevented from staining or otherwise damaging the carpet. Our team moves through your store systematically, extracting the water and shifting your inventory so it and the carpet escape further harm. Using foam blocks, foil-backed cardboard squares, or other appropriate aids, SERVPRO crew members keep the wood from bleeding its finish or absorbing moisture and metal from rusting during the drying recovery period.

Chances are good we dry out the carpeting successfully in place. This task requires disengaging the carpeting enough from the subfloor to position air movers and dehumidifiers, directing the air floor over and under the carpet. We often replace the padding as it disintegrates quickly and adds a layer that impedes the carpeting from drying. Tack strips also must be monitored for retained moisture and may be replaced to avoid strips of dampness after the carpeting is returned and stretched.

Because of the risk of secondary harm, such as mold growth or delamination of the carpet from its backing, contact SERVPRO of Marlboro / Concord as soon as possible after retail flooding. A call to (978) 486-9868 sets up an inspection and implementation of a drying plan within hours.

Restoring Areas Impacted by Commercial Water Damage in the Historic Sites of Concord

House Reflection On Water Historic Homes in the Concord Area Deserve Water Damage Restoration from SERVPRO

SERVPRO Provides Quality Restoration to Unique Structures Post Water Damage

Maintaining a historic site requires many resources. When something damages or threatens to harm the integrity of such locations, immediate action is required. Sometimes, however, the damage is not genuinely evident until after it has already occurred.

When a historic site in Concord has developed commercial water damage, it is imperative that all signs of the loss be removed. SERVPRO has the know-how to complete any size job in any setting imaginable, including historical ones that need to be restored to a specific time period. We know that your site needs to remain authentic for aesthetic reasons relevant to visiting guests and continued registry inclusion.

Water damage can affect historic buildings and sites similar to modern buildings and homes and unique ways to the historic sites that remind our youth of their heritage in a unique, hands-on, tangible manner. Because of the requirements of many sites to remain authentic in areas that are not typically visible and those areas, we always stay in close contact with administrators of such places. We want you assured that we understand that these locations are unique and irreplaceable to our country.

A significant aspect of removing water damage is to stop any additional water from entering the site and creating future damage. We can take any contents at the site to a safe and dry location, mitigating or preventing harm to these items.

If anything within the contents is already damaged, we can work with you to determine each type's best course of action. SERVPRO's IICRC certified technicians are trained to clean under unique conditions, such as leather items like saddles that might need to be cleaned of mold but have any patina left in place, documents and books may need to be dusted off and vacuumed of dust and other debris. Clothing may need to be simply aired out in the sun. However, at all times, we make it a point to listen to our customers about how to proceed.

SERVPRO of Marlboro / Concord knows the climate can be harsh in our area and that it can bring unique challenges to any location when it comes to water damage. Call us at (978) 486-9868, any time, day or night, weekends and holidays included, as we are always available.

Crucial Considerations When Handling Water Damage at a Concord Premises

1/9/2022 (Permalink)

SERVPRO job site SERVPRO commercial damage restoration services are what you need. We will be on-site within 4 hours of the initial call.

Professional Water Restoration by SERVPRO Is Based on Convenience and Efficiency

Water damage affects structural materials and contents indiscriminately. However, a procedure approach is necessary when responding to such an incident to ensure a satisfactory outcome. Proper planning also helps improve time and cost management.

Responding to water damage at your Concord premises means handling processes such as removing any water pooling in the premises, drying wet materials, and cleaning or rebuilding and refinishing any deteriorating structural parts. Ensuring you have the right resources or involving a professional like SERVPRO is essential when managing such damage.

Some crucial considerations include:

  • Whether there are enough restoration equipment
  • Whether there are enough people to handle restoration
  • Whether appropriate site management resources are accessible

Water readily spreads over vast areas through gravitational flow, evaporation, or wicking through materials. Containing widespread damage takes more than one unit of each restoration equipment. For instance, every 70 square feet of wet flooring requires an air mover unit to dry. If it is a wall, an air mover is necessary for every 150 square feet. Other equipment such as dehumidifiers and water extractors are also subject to their unique coverage requirements. So it would be best if you considered whether you have sufficient equipment before attempting a restoration.

Human input is necessary when managing moisture damage. Having enough people to tackle different tasks is essential. Also, the training of these individuals matters. All members of the SERVPRO team handling the damage at your premises are IICRC certified so that you can expect better water removal, structural drying, and cleaning of the premises to sanitary levels.

After the damage from water intrusion, your facility needs proper management to avoid clutter and hazards. It would help if you evaluated whether you have the necessary site management resources before starting restoration.

Some useful site management resources include:

  • Portable storage units
  • Trash cans for waste management
  • Safety signs such as wet floor signs

SERVPRO of Marlboro / Concord helps you respond to water damage confidently since we have the resources to resolve it "Like it never even happened." Call us at (978) 486-9868.

Prioritizing Your Concord Business After a Water Damage Event

12/15/2021 (Permalink)

Here to Help SERVPRO techs are prepared for every commercial damage restoration service needed for your building. We are here to help.

We have money and time-saving mitigation strategies to protect Concord office buildings after water damage.

Water damage can occur in hundreds of ways, making the response of experienced professionals critical to evaluate the damage and determine the ideal restoration approach to help. With a 24/7 response of water damage restoration professionals, we can begin mitigation and emergency services as they are needed in commercial properties throughout Middlesex County.

Containment of the Damage Area

The need for water mitigation in Concord office buildings and facilities varies from one site to the next. We strive to provide immediate emergency services to prevent the situation from getting worse, such as moisture migration into otherwise unaffected building areas. Therefore, containment is a critical element of the mitigation we provide.

Repairs Wherever Necessary

We can also help with repairs and reconstruction your property might require after water damage exposures with a general contractor license. Office buildings can have many points of structural deterioration after prolonged saturation, so our experienced team can help with replacing or repairing:

  • Plumbing
  • Ceiling materials
  • Flooring
  • Fixtures

Clearing Surface Water and Moisture

Removing any standing water or surface moisture is critical to protect the property from greater harm. Often, standing water is not always present enough to require submersible pumps. Instead, we rely on traditional drying methods like toweling and mopping or the application of wet vacuums where some pooling exists.

Our professionals will waste no time in protecting whatever is possible in your office building after water damage. In these situations, urgent responses are critical. We provide direct mitigation for water exposure throughout the building, beginning as soon as we arrive. Our SERVPRO of Marlboro / Concord team is available 24/7 to help at (978) 486-9868.

Let's Dine Out at a Marlborough Restaurant Free of Water and Fire Damage Thanks to SERVPRO

fire sprinkler SERVPRO professionals are trained to every level of damage to your property.

Sprinkler System Damage to Your Marlborough Restaurant Dining Area

Sometimes disasters that can affect your Marlborough restaurant remain isolated to one area or another. While this might help regarding the efficiency of restoration, it can also put certain items and elements more at risk than even a widespread situation would. Sprinklers are spread throughout your entire restaurant to suppress fires as they start, but when these systems malfunction or become damaged, they can spread high volumes of water through specific regions of the restaurant, such as your dining area. Protecting your investment in this area of your business requires a fast response from trained professionals.

There are many materials within the dining area of your Marlborough eatery that, after a fire, instantly become at risk when also exposed to water damage like a broken sprinkler system allows. This water flow can spread quickly across the floor, saturating carpeting, seating, tables, and booths. If not adequately extracted and dried, these saturated areas can begin to swell and distort, ultimately requiring removal and replacement. Our SERVPRO professionals can respond quickly to emergencies like this with fast extraction equipment and high-powered drying tools.

Smoke odors are never an inducement to good dining, so count on us to immediately place hydroxyl generators for neutralization. 

Fire and Smoke Damage Restoration and Cleanup

From the time that our professionals arrive at your business, we can work on assessing the full scope of the water damage by using moisture detection and thermal imagery. These steps can occur alongside our extraction efforts which would include the use of our portable sump pumps or wet-vacs with extraction wands. We can even utilize our remote-controlled weighted extractor to force moisture from carpeting and subflooring. Hidden moisture can typically be found in the hollows of seating booths.

The line cooking section of the restaurant usually is equipped with a dry powder fire suppression system in the event of flare ups. Water splashing onto hot grills and pots can endanger the cooks and spread the flames to a broader area. This is another specialized cleanup that our trained SERVPRO techs can accomplish to keep your doors open for business. Fire affects different restaurant areas in various ways, and we must be flexible to deploy the right equipment and efforts for an effective fire damage restoration. 

Drying out the damaged areas is not always starting equipment and leaving it to do its job. We must monitor the moisture levels of exposed and saturated wood elements like the booths and some flooring to maintain a specific moisture level. Wood naturally carries a set moisture content, and overly drying can be equally detrimental to the appearance and functionality of the material. 

Many steps are necessary to recover the dining area of your restaurant after a water damage incident. Let our SERVPRO of Marlboro / Concord rapid response team help you make this damaging situation “Like it never even happened.” Give us a call today at (978) 486-9868.

Equipment SERVPRO Uses to Clean Water Damage in Marlborough

9/12/2021 (Permalink)

burst pipe SERVPRO is the team for your commercial building restoration service. We specialize in all phases of commercial damage restoration.

Esporta Commercial Water Cleaning Applications  

Water damage to contents suffered by Marlborough businesses used to be a numbers game played with insurance companies. Conventional cleaning techniques fell far short when confronted with the challenges of Category 2 and Category 3 water, mold, and mildew. Dirty water-soaked inventory or other soft contents were destined for the landfill at least 60 percent of the time, often at a significant loss on the ledger. 

Introducing Esporta 

In the vast spaces of a warehouse or distribution center, even relatively clean water deteriorates if more than a day or two goes by before removal and drying completely. Entities that use offsite storage spaces struggle with a lack of control when commercial water cleaning in Marlborough becomes necessary because of burst pipes or storm damage. By the time the business owner checks on stored items, the damage is often already well-entrenched. SERVPRO’s Esporta washing system gives these businesses a second chance, its programmable hydraulic action gently but persistently eliminating soil, grease, pathogens, fungi, and odors. The final product emerges from the system “food grade” clean, not infrequently in even better condition than before the water loss. 

Dirty Gear? No Worries with Esporta 

Restoration companies like SERVPRO continually dig into filthy water damage scenarios for customers, outfitting our crews in personal protective equipment (PPE) to safeguard against incidental contact with toxic waste. Likewise, firefighters and other professionals who don waterproof gear that gets dirty and exposed to hazardous substances benefit from our Esporta washing system. The machine can handle a wide variety of protective gear and clothing across industries, using easy to program computer coding to clean and disinfect essential turnout gear and PPE. Challenging soils like soot, pathogens, hazardous chemicals, and other contaminants in Category 2 and 3 water are no match for the Esporta. Even safety equipment used in disaster recoveries like hard hats, We always have available goggles and face shields and are ready for use at another emergency after our technicians program the appropriate cleaning cycle.

Prepare to be impressed by the Esporta washing system now used as a valuable resource by SERVPRO of Marlboro / Concord. Call (978) 486-9868 for a consultation on how we can make this technology work for your business.

mold spore Any type of leaking water will cause mold if not fixed quickly. Mold remediation services for all commercial buildings are second to none by SERVPRO.

How Can There Be Mold in the Attic of My Marlborough Commercial Building?

Mold colonies can occur almost anywhere in Marlborough commercial buildings, especially where there is sufficient moisture, a food source, and warmth. These ingredients can be found in the attic of commercial buildings as well as residential houses. Small leaks in the roof, dryer vents that exhaust into the attic, and bathroom fans that exhaust warm moist air into the attic from broken exhaust pipes are examples of how moisture sources can contribute to mold colonies forming in the attic.

SERVPRO can send our mold and water damage restoration specialists to investigate the mold in the attic of your Marlborough commercial building. We are available 24/7. We respond in less than 4 hours of your call for assistance.

  • Complete mold inspection of your commercial building

SERVPRO vehicle Need assistance with fire damage cleanup? Call our skilled team of experts right away.

SERVPRO uses appropriate fire damage restoration techniques to restore commercial buildings

When scoping and estimating fire loss, SERVPRO separates Structure and Contents. They also get cleaned separately. The difference is anything that is permanently attached to the building is part of the structure. Walls, windows, cabinets, and light fixtures are all structural components. 

Cleaning to Pre-loss Condition

The goal of the restorer in fire damage cleanup in Concord is to return the building to preloss condition. That means removing the effects of the fire damage and removing smoke residue from the interior and exterior surfaces of the building. Fire restoration cleaning is done after our technicians determine what can be restored and what needs to be replaced. There are two methods of structural cleaning that we use:

  • Washable – This involves items that can be wet cleaned. Water-based cleaning products do not harm the item or surface area.
  • Non-washable – These are materials that would be damaged by a water-based cleaning agent. 

Residues on the materials impact the cleaning method used as well. If the residue is oil or grease-based, a dry solvent cleaning agent is required even if the item itself would not be damaged by water.

SERVPRO of Marlborough / Concord has the training and experience to determine which cleaning methods should be used to restore your business. Contact us at (978) 486-9868.

When Water Intrusion Damages your Property, SERVPRO Can Perform Water Restoration Quickly and Effectively

Marlborough is a city in Massachusetts with a strong reputation as a hub for some of the United States' most innovative tech industries. The region has always been synonymous with forward-thinking economic development. The 22 square miles that makeup Marlborough was a prime manufacturing hub during the industrial revolution, most notably for the mass production of shoes. Throughout much of the twentieth century, the region sustained its reputation for shoe production, which began with Samuel Boyd, with national brands such as Frye, Rice & Hutchings, and The Rockport Company. The official signet of Marlborough is a factory, a pair of boots, and a shoebox. Twenty-first century Marlborough is well known for its cutting edge industries that were planned and executed with the Massachusetts Turnpike, a burgeoning region for technological and scientific development. Notable companies in the area include Boston Scientific, AT & T, and Hewlitt Packard. 

The Marlborough region's first settlements began as early as 1656 when John Howe set up a shop between two Indian trails. Like many New England societies of the period, the primary settlers were puritans. The town garnered a nickname as a praying Indian tribe due to the high number of indigenous peoples converted to Christianity during the city's early life. The growth of this settlement was primarily due to its geographical location along the Boston post route. Over time the number of people stopping over between routes led to the formation of Inns and rest stops. It was not until the 19th century that the growing settler community began to industrialize, taking advantage of the stopover point to push trade across the US. The city has three main waterways: the Fort Meadow Reservoir and Lake Williams. 

The Lost Shoe Brewery on Weed Street is a popular destination for locals and visitors that refers to Marlborough's history as a shoe manufacturing town

The Apex Entertainment Center is a massive space designed for arcades and family fun. The 100 000 square foot space includes go-karting, laser tag, bowling, and cinema.

The World War Two Memorial Beach on Causeway Street has recently been refurbished and renovated to create a clean, family-friendly environment.

Can SERVPRO Help Protect My Stock During Water Restoration in My Store?

Clothing store; inventory displayed Water can not only damage the structure of your business, but also the inventory. SERVPRO can help! Call us today!

Marlborough Store Owners Want to Save Their Inventory During Water Restoration 

As any Marlborough store owner knows, inventory is the heart and soul of a retail business. Whether you deal with tires or ice cream, selling your products is your focus. Entrepreneurs channel a lot of time and energy into deciding on and managing stock levels and figuring out their best-selling items to maximize profits. 

It is natural to be worried about your stock during water restoration in your Marlborough store. SERVPRO of Marlboro / Concord is here to serve the local business community and help you through disasters.  

What is water restoration, and why would I need it? 

Water restoration means cleaning and repairing your premises and contents after water damage. Water damage can happen because of moisture leaking in from outside, such as through a broken window. It can also occur because of an appliance or plumbing mishap.  

When something happens, it is tempting to think you and your staff can handle it. However, there are many advantages to calling in the professionals: 

  • We train our technicians in industry best practices, so you know you are getting the best results
  • We have specialized cleaning products and equipment such as pumps and extractors that your business most likely does not have
  • We can test for moisture in hidden places such as under carpet or inside walls, which means we get to the cause of the issue
  • We understand the risk of mold growth and can take preventative steps 

We equip our teams with the correct personal protective equipment for a safer working environment. Calling in remediation specialists means you can get your business back up quickly, leaving it, “Like it never even happened.” 

When should I call for help?  

Call SERVPRO as soon as you notice signs of water damage in Marlboro. Even if it is just a small leak or damp patch, call us immediately. Fast action means less damage to your store and less risk of fungal growth. We are available 24 hours, so do not delay. 

Can SERVPRO protect my stock? 

Unfortunately, if your stock is already water-damaged, you cannot sell it. You will need to dispose of it and replace it.  

However, we can help protect your undamaged stock by: 

  • Covering everything with plastic sheeting while we work
  • Moving items to a safer place within the store
  • Packing your inventory out to our off-site storage facility if necessary 

We understand how important your inventory is to your store. Our technicians will take every precaution to protect your stock and prevent it from getting damaged. 

Are there Other Ways SERVPRO can Assist Me? 

We can help you with every aspect of water restoration, from start to finish. We start by assessing your premises, logging moisture and humidity levels, and looking for hidden moisture sources.  

The next stage is extraction – we use pumps and extractors to draw out as much water as possible. We have powerful truck-mounted pumps for deeper water pools and light carpet wands for hard to reach areas. Thorough extraction means we can dry your store more quickly. 

We use a variety air movers and dehumidifiers to dry every corner of your store. Finally, we use air scrubbers, carbon filters, and sometimes fogging machines or ozone generators to deodorize your premises. We know that a fresh, clean-smelling store is vital. 

Can I do anything to prevent the need for water restoration? 

You cannot always prevent disasters. But you can be vigilant about potential problems. For example, it is good to regularly check doors, windows, gutters, and roof tiles and repair any issues. It is also essential to check for plumbing or appliance problems such as leaks, blocked drains, or running toilets. 

Never ignore a warning sign of water damage. 

How can I help my staff prepare? 

To ensure your staff is prepared for any eventuality, create your own SERVPRO Emergency READY Profile (ERP). Your ERP contains all the vital information about your business: 

  • The chain of command and who to call in an emergency
  • Insurance provider details
  • Premises information such as water shut-off points and assembly points
  • A plan for getting your business running after a disaster 

It is easy to set up your ERP. Create a free profile, download the app, and follow the on-screen instructions to pre-fill your profile with all the essential details. The app will guide you on a walk-through of your premises to gather information.

An ERP means staff knows what to do and who to call when disaster strikes. You can set us as your go-to water restoration specialists so that you can get help quickly.

After a Fire in Marlborough, How Can I Safely Clean Away All of This Soot?

8/29/2020 (Permalink)

Flames SERVPRO of Marlboro / Concord is the team to call when you need fast, effective fire and soot removal.

SERVPRO Comes to Your Marlborough Business and Uses the Latest Techniques for Fire and Soot Removal

When SERVPRO gets called to manage a fire cleanup project, we have technicians trained to handle all of the intricacies of such a task. We work carefully intending to restore versus replacement, which means cleaning as much of the structure and contents of your Marlborough business possible. This gets done with the help of our proven methods, powerful equipment, and advanced cleaning agents. All of this gets handled as quickly as possible because the longer it takes for total cleanup of smoke and soot, the less chance we have of a successful, full recovery.

How Do You Assess the Fire Damage?

After your interior is deemed safe for entry by the first responders on the scene, our crew chief does a walkthrough to scope the damage. When it comes to fire and soot removal in Marlborough, our technicians have been trained following guidelines of the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC). What this means is that we know how to determine what to salvage and what to dispose of.

The walkthrough gives us a better idea of the structural damage and any office furnishings, fixtures, and items that call for restoration. We also make sure that all documentation and photographs of the damage get handled carefully by the project manager on the job so that your insurance claim goes as smoothly as possible.

We Secure Your Property

Fire damage often weakens your building structure, which can leave any openings in a vulnerable position in regards to outdoor elements. We can go around your business space to close off any areas of potential exposure with our tarp up and boarding services.

What About Wet Areas of the Interior?

Fires are fought with either water, chemicals, or a combination of both. Depending on the size of the blaze, there could be extensive water damage left behind. We address the water left after first responders extinguishing the flames by:

    •    Utilizing specialized hygrometers that help us measure moisture saturation
    •    Using infrared camera technology that allows us to locate hidden pockets of moisture
    •    Employ the use of powerful equipment for water removals, such as truck-mounted extractors, pumps, and wet-dry vacuums

After our team is confident that we have removed enough water, we then put industrial-grade air movers and dehumidifiers into place. We always consider humidity levels and adjust our equipment placement accordingly to help achieve our drying goals. As with any project that involves moisture, mold prevention is part of the process.

Could There Be Soot in the Ductwork?

Before we arrive at your business, you can shut off the power to your HVAC system to reduce the transmission of soot and particulates to unaffected areas of your building. You can also close off the doors to the fire zone and carefully remove any relevant paperwork and other important items, if it is safe to do so.

Our team will take the appropriate steps to clean out your ductwork and seal the interior if necessary to help keep odorous elements from lingering. It is not unusual to have several smoke residue types within one space, all of which may require different applications and products for removal. It is important to note that some DIY cleaning methods may also result in further damage, such as:

    •    Wet cleaning solution used on dry smoke particles can embed them into surfaces causing stains
    •    Haphazardly dusting or vacuuming can cause particulates to become airborne, posing a health threat as well as moving them into other unaffected spaces in the building

We have the right equipment to use in each situation, including solvent mixtures that work on stubborn, sticky residue. Our team chooses the best process for mitigation during fire and soot removal to reach our restoration goals on time.

What About Wood Furniture?

For unfinished wood items within your commercial space, it is easy for smoke odors to penetrate them. Our team uses a few different cleaning options, including denatured alcohol and dry cleaning sponges on bottoms of office furniture, inside desk drawers, and any untreated wood shelving or other items.

There are some signs that your wood furniture may not be salvageable, which may happen after exposure to high heat. This will include:

    •    Joints that have taken on water or have cracked from exposure to heat
    •    Heavy surface blistering
    •    Permanent staining that is moderate to extremely dark

We do offer semi-refinishing techniques that can help to bring your wood furnishings back to life. This process is best for taking off watermarks and slight stains while using a solvent-based cleaner over the finish layer on top. When carefully executed, this process helps to remove chalky spots and light stains.

SERVPRO of Marlboro / Concord is the team to call when you need fast, effective fire and soot removal. Contact us 24/7 by calling (978) 486-9868 to have a crew deployed to your building.

Can SERVPRO Stabilize Our Concord Warehouse After Water Damage?

5/15/2020 (Permalink)

A warehouse with blue shelving. Concord Businesses Protect Inventory from Water Damage with Rapid Response from SERVPRO.

SERVPRO Extracts Water and Preserves Contents in Concord Structures

Concord warehouse owners know all too well the risk of water damage to their premises. Water that enters a storage area might damage both the facility itself and everything stored there. Concerns about water damage are justified no matter what kind of warehouse you run – and it is even more worrying if you happen to store food or flowers or anything else that needs to be kept under controlled temperature and humidity.

The first thing to do after a leak or flood in your Concord warehouse is to call SERVPRO for water removal services. Our expert teams arrive ready to remove all the water using a combination of free-standing, truck-mounted and submersible pumps. However, water removal is only the first step in remediating the situation. Our overall aim is to restore your warehouse “Like it never even happened.”

We understand how important it is that your premises have optimum conditions as concerns temperature and humidity. That is why our IICRC-certified technicians pay such close attention to measuring the moisture and humidity and devising an appropriate drying plan.

We equip our teams with a range of perfectly calibrated instruments, including thermal hygrometers, moisture meters and probes, and thermal imaging software. Thermo hygrometers measure the humidity in the air, or in other words the amount of moisture the air is currently holding. Meantime, we use moisture meters and probes to measure the moisture content of particular parts of the warehouse, such as the walls, storage units, or under the floor. Finally, thermal imaging techniques allow us to see hidden patches of moisture that we could not detect with the naked eye.

Once we have a clear overview of the situation in your premises, we devise a drying plan to restore it to the best temperature and humidity. Drying out something as large as a warehouse is a challenge, but do not worry. Our experienced teams are well versed in how to calculate the correct number and placement of dehumidifiers and air movers for maximum effect.

Stabilizing the conditions in your warehouse is a vital part of recovery after water removal, and you can rely on SERVPRO to get the job done right. Protecting the contents is our highest priority.

SERVPRO of Marlboro / Concord is on hand to help with any water removal process for Marlborough, Concord, and Littleton. Simply call us today at (978) 486-9868 for help and advice.

How Do We Get An Odor Out Of Our Marlborough Business?

5/6/2020 (Permalink)

A man with a white clothespin on his nose. SERVPRO Eliminates Odors that Affect Commercial Buildings in Marlborough

SERVPRO Assesses and Eliminates Sources of Odors and Improves IAQ to Commercial Buildings.

Maybe you are coping with a lingering smoke odor after a fire at your Marlborough business. Moldy areas can emit that musty smell even after remediation. Traumatic or criminal events also have residual aromas that are unpleasant and upsetting to employees and customers. Use the expertise of our deodorizer specialists to eliminate the odor.

When planning for odor removal in your Marlborough shop, hotel, restaurant, factory, or other business our crews follow a step by step process. Each step may be repeated until the odor is removed entirely. Some of the processes involve cleaning and disposal of smelly residues. Others use advanced technology to rid the area of the smell in other ways. We are confident that our crews can find a solution to even the toughest odor problems.

The first attempts to rid the areas affected are pretty intuitive. We discuss what the owner, manager, and employees of the business feel might be the source of the smell. Then we scour the area to look for remnants that may have gone undiscovered. Odor removal typically improves Indoor Air Quality, IAQ. For example, if the smell is linked to dead animals all carcasses must be found, bagged, and discarded properly.

The SERVPRO team also looks for residues that make surfaces smell. Soot and smoke are typical examples, but a crime scene could have pepper spray or tear gas remnants. The residues are cleaned off as thoroughly as possible, and we may use heat to drive the odor vapors out of porous articles.

Next, persisting odors may respond to professional air spray deodorizers. SERVPRO employees try to replicate the way the odor was dispersed originally to capture and eliminate the smell. Smoky odors are often defeated by thermal fogging, where deodorants are combusted in a heat chamber, and then fogged in an area. The deodorant particles cling to odor particles and neutralize them at a molecular level.

Hydroxyl generators emit tiny particles that also latch onto the smelly bits, airborne and on surfaces, and change the chemical composition to eliminate the odor. SERVPRO may use ozone in certain circumstances, but only when other attempts are unsuccessful.

Sealing in odors is an option when you do not want to discard articles that may carry the smell. Sealing is not always the perfect solution but can work well with other strategies. SERVPRO crews are relentless until one of the efforts works and the smell is gone.

If persistent odors plague your commercial space, rely on SERVPRO of Marlboro / Concord to find a deodorizing solution that is permanent. Call (978) 486-9868 to schedule an odor eliminating consultation.

Is Your Marlborough Bank in Need of Water Removal?

4/13/2020 (Permalink)

Bank sign inside of commercial building What do you do when your bank experiences water damage? Cal SERVPRO!

Commercial Water Removal in Marlborough Could Have Been Caused By Your Sprinkler System 

Construction engineers design the sprinkler system installed inside your Marlborough bank to pump water into your building if a fire ever happens to occur. However, if these systems get triggered by a minor blaze or due to a system malfunction, your company may be required to conduct commercial water removal. Sprinkler systems pump several gallons of liquid H2O into a burning structure, but if they malfunction, problems can result. 

If there is a significant amount of H2O present, it may be wise to call in the professionals like our SERVPRO team to conduct your commercial water removal in Marlborough. Sometimes when sprinkler systems go off, the results can be catastrophic. The sprinklers can cause the floors beneath them to accumulate a large amount of moisture. The moisture can then travel to your bank levels that are below. In some situations, your sprinkler system could cause building materials and contents on multiple floors of your bank to get wet. 

When dealing with emergency water damage calls at your bank, our SERVPRO technicians know that mitigating issues before they get worse is vital. We can show up right after you get notified of a problem and begin assessing your situation. We know that since you are in the bank business that you must keep your financial institution operating due to federal regulations put in place during the Great Depression era. 

When dealing with severe moisture-related cases, our SERVPRO crew could have to set up several air movers and dehumidifiers on multiple levels of your bank as a part of our applied structural drying or ASD procedures. Since your bank must keep operating, we can often conduct the ASD process in small sections. For example, we can start our mitigation efforts by extracting and drying offices in your bank away from your main lobby. We can then work on the building materials and contents inside your lobby once other areas are dry, enabling your staff to move operations to the remediated areas. 

If the sprinkler system ever gets triggered and sprays water all over your bank's interior, it is wise to call SERVPRO of Marlboro / Concord at (978) 486-9868 24/7.

SERVPRO Performs Commercial Water Cleanup for Marlborough Businesses 24/7

Ceiling water damage in retail spaces can be tricky to clean. Whether the leak is from a damaged pipe or faulty sprinkler system, the stains and potential odors caused by this damage can be unsightly and require rapid mitigation to prevent the onset of contaminants like mold. 

If your business needs commercial water cleanup in Marlborough, SERVPRO techs are always available to remove the damage and keep your business safe and clean for customers and employees alike. SERVPRO employs high-tech measurement tools and cleanup modalities to ensure precise mitigation while keeping costs for business owners low. 

What Can I Do To Mitigate Damage Until Technicians Arrive?

  • Collect leaks in a bucket or tray. Even if you use a water-resistant ceramic tile or polished concrete in your storefront, extended exposure to water can eventually seep into grout or flooring under vapor barriers. 
  • Remove affected ceiling tiles. Water-damaged tiles can eventually warp and crumble from exposure to water.
  • Protect the floor. Ceiling leaks can spread over time, so take care to protect your flooring with rubber mats, tarps, or other floor coverings, even if there is a vapor barrier finish on the flooring. Water can seep into cracks and damage flooring or subfloors over time.
  • Take care of inventory. Move inventory near the leak to a clean, dry location to prevent water damage to your salable goods. 

How Can SERVPRO Restoration Techs Dry My Storefront?

After extracting water with portable extractors, SERVPRO can deploy high-powered centrifugal air movers and low-grain refrigerant dehumidifiers to dry your business. Techs can remove damaged ceiling tiles to keep your business safe and encourage ventilation in the affected area. If the insulation in your ceiling is also compromised, technicians can vacuum it up, clean and dry fiberglass or rock wool insulation, and reimplement it in your structure.

SERVPRO of Marlboro / Concord preserves businesses with cleanup that is Faster to Any Size Disaster. Call (978) 486-9868 to begin mitigation within hours of your initial contact.

Storm-Damaged Documents and Contents in Marlborough May Regain Pre-Loss Condition When SERVPRO Provides Cutting-Edge Equipment and Methods

1/27/2020 (Permalink)

black containers stacked by office cubicles SERVPRO Helps Rescue Document Storage in Damp Marlborough Basements

Storage and Records Recovery for Marlborough Offices After Storms

While you might not use the lower levels of your Marlborough business headquarters as additional space for offices or breakrooms, this subterranean level can be ideal for keeping hard copies of records and storage of older equipment. As many businesses and residences have learned throughout our area of the state, it can be challenging to keep basement levels dry. From natural springs in the ground surrounding structures to flooding situations, moist lower levels are a common threat to area properties.

You might have already taken measures to address these threats, such as installing a sump pump, but this rarely fully resolves the wet basement of Marlborough office buildings. Dehumidifiers can be a useful deterrent to excessive moisture. With documentation and client details stored in files in various segments of this lower level, persistent wet conditions can cause these records to deteriorate, or worse yet, allow for hazardous development of mold colonies. SERVPRO advises storing paper documents in dry, conditioned spaces.

Pre-mitigation strategies involve any of the pack-out or movement of these records that can happen without damaging their integrity. We understand the sensitivity of the information contained in these documents. In many situations, they do not need to get entirely removed from the premises, even if the papers have become water damaged. We have freeze-drying capabilities for documents and books that can preserve handwriting and type by rapidly removing the moisture from the material. This can be a complicated process and not always successful.

With a team of in-house contractors, our restoration process can also include waterproofing strategies and the installation of permanent fixtures to help remove higher moisture content. Permanent dehumidifiers, for example, can continually draw moisture from the air before humidity levels increase to the point where they can destroy stored records in the basement or allow secondary effects like mold to take hold.

In some situations, paper records pre-date the information that you have stored on your computer servers, making the protection of these documents vital to your business. With the likelihood of structures battling wet basements, our SERVPRO of Marlboro / Concord team has become well trained in moisture removal and material drying sciences to help.

Cold Weather Can Spell Trouble For Your Marlborough School

1/8/2020 (Permalink)

school after damage We have the skills and the equipment to make even widespread water losses “Like it never even happened.”

Freezing Temperatures Can Threaten Marlborough School Plumbing

Extreme temperature drops are unfortunately par for the course in the heart of the winter months here in Marlborough, and some of the aging commercial structures like the schools can feel the worst of these conditions. While many of these structures are perpetually heated to prevent situations like freezing pipes and other complications, a lapse in the power or other oversights can leave supply lines feeding the property susceptible to these steep temperature drops.

Because water lines get piped to every floor of the building, a singular incident of freezing in the water lines can burst pipes in the Marlborough school and compromise a wide area. How fast this situation gets responded to is vital to ensuring that the school is ready to accept students, even if the primary work area must get sealed off. Custodial professionals are great caretakers for the school, but lack the advanced equipment and specific training of professional restoration services, making the securing of our SERVPRO service vital to protecting the property.

There are no situations where burst pipes do not require repair to the plumbing network and often to construction materials as well. While our technicians work in mitigation tactics like removing surface water standing in the affected areas with submersible pumps and wet vacuums, our licensed general contractors on our team can work on controlled demolition tactics to reach the damaged portion of plumbing.

In addition to toothing out blockwork to reach and repair damaged plumbing, our SERVPRO team can also drill weep holes in the cells of the bottom exposed course to drain out water held in the walls and to give access points for advanced drying tools like our positive pressure systems like the InjectiDry unit. This equipment forces heated air into the structural cavity to ensure that it gets dried out completely.

There are hundreds, if not thousands, of people to consider and accommodate when a water loss incident impacts the school. Our SERVPRO of Marlboro / Concord team can help with a fast response any time disasters strike. We have the skills and the equipment to make even widespread water losses “Like it never even happened.” Give our skilled professionals a call whenever you need us at (978) 486-9868.

How Air Scrubbers Are Used in Commercial Mold Remediation in Concord

9/23/2019 (Permalink)

Plastic sheeting barricade around sink and dishwasher; SERVPRO equipment A slow leak caused mold to growth. We set up a containment field to prevent the mold spores from traveling to unaffected parts of the home.

Commercial Mold Remediation Crews In Concord Explain How Air Scrubbers Get Used

If organic materials inside your Concord fabric store ever get wet, fungi can develop and cause your business many problems. If wooden or paper items inside your store stay wet from a storm or water leak for longer than 48 hours, then you might be in a situation where you need to call in a professional commercial mold remediation company such as SERVPRO. Once a fungus develops, it can quickly spread throughout your building.

Once your structure gets contaminated, it is wise to conduct commercial mold remediation inside your Concord retail store as soon as possible. The longer you wait, the more time the spores coming from the fungus can get airborne and spread throughout your structure. Once fungi form they start growing structures called hyphae that release tiny seeds or spores into the air. These spores float around before settling onto another food source where they can develop and contaminate a new area.

Whenever our SERVPRO team mitigates mold-related issues, we take measures to prevent spores from spreading and contaminating your fabric store's products and structural components. One piece of equipment we use during the mitigation process is an air scrubber equipped with a HEPA filter. This machine "scrubs" the air by creating negative pressure and sucking the contaminated air inside your store into a HEPA filter that is designed to trap microscopic particles, including spores released by fungi.

If removing existing fungal contamination is required, our team sets up a containment chamber and attach an air scrubber to create negative air pressure within the affected area. The machine sucks in any particles that become airborne during the removal process.  Air scrubbers also clean the area that might have already been contaminated by spores.

In some situations, air scrubbers can also be used to ensure clean air inside your fabric shop. Since the majority of your products are porous cloth materials, we use air scrubbers to remove any potentially harmful airborne particles so that they cannot penetrate and contaminate your contents.

If you ever notice the presence of fungi inside your fabric store in Littleton, Hudson, or Boxborough, call SERVPRO of Marlboro / Concord at (978) 486-9868. We are available 24/7, and We're Faster To Any Size Disaster.

Water Damage in Your Commercial Building in Marlborough? SERVPRO Cleans and Restores until It Smells Like a Rose!

Odor Control in Commercial Water Removal Services for Marlborough Businesses

All types of water carry microbes. In the restoration industry, it has become common-place to offer a two-sided service that tackles both moisture and odor. Even clean water emergencies, those that have come from water-pipes, can become unpleasant particularly if it is allowed to sit for a prolonged period. For a customer facing business like a cafe, bar or restaurant, odor management is crucial to getting their business back to preloss conditions.

When you need commercial water removal in Marlborough, it is likely because your requirements go beyond the scope of your in house janitorial team. In these circumstances, SERVPRO offers businesses a smooth solution that can help to get your business back on track sooner rather than later. Since water emergencies are time-sensitive- mold growth can occur in as little as 72 hours- SERVPRO is available by phone twenty-four hours a day.

Odor issues are common in water emergencies. However, it is often the case that odor dissipates once the affected area has been thoroughly dried. Soaking of flooring, furnishing or fabrics can often loosen pre-existing soils that cause an unpleasant odor since The moisture is often beneath the surface of the item, so we use dehumidification as a proper drying method that controls both odor and mold growth.

By reducing the relative humidity (RH) in the affected area, SERVPRO not only inhibits the onset of microbial growth but we can also dry saturated fabrics. Using desiccant dehumidifiers, we can reduce the relative humidity to below 40GPP. The drier air pulls moisture out from fabrics because water molecules naturally move from wet to dry. We can speed up this process by placing air-movers that blast hot air at a surface level to help dry concrete and hardwood flooring.

The SERVPRO commercial unit is adept at controlling unpleasant odors after a water spill. We use thermal foggers that vaporize deodorants which can fumigate a large surface area quickly and effectively. In difficult to reach areas we can place pellets or industrial air fresheners that can mask an odor until it dissipates naturally over time.

Guard your business against unpleasant odors and microbial growth. Contact SERVPRO of Marlboro / Concord at (978) 486-9868.

SERVPRO Will Get You Back In Business After A Concord Fire

Office equipment and books in this office were covered in soot after a fire our crew can remove these items in an attempt to restore them.

Soot Sediment in the HVAC System of Your Concord Office

Multiple effects can keep the doors of your Concord office building closed after a fire has occurred. We strive to work quickly to get any business back up and running, but fires can present many levels of damaging concerns that require much of our specialized equipment, experience, and IICRC training to overcome. Even situations like soot and smoke residues can coat surfaces, contents, and many of the pathways between areas of your facility, requiring specific techniques and personnel to address.

No matter what time of the year that fire damage occurs, the Concord office building that you own is likely using its HVAC system to condition the temperature of the air to be a suitable environment for both clients and employees. With this system running regularly throughout the year, when fire loss incidents occur, the effects of these disasters can move through the air ducts to affect more areas of the facility and coat these pathways with soot and smoke particulates.

We understand the importance of removing these detrimental effects from your HVAC system, regardless if your ductile network already required cleaning or not. Addressing these concerns can not only prevent further spread of fire damage effects, but it can also help your air ducts to allow a greater flow of air to allow the unit to run with less energy and higher efficiency.

With our cleaning system for air ducts, we can quickly address concerns that already existed in this network before the fire effects, as well as the most recent deposits of soot and smoke particulates. Our brushes can adjust to the size of the vent that they are cleaning, ensuring complete clearing of sediment and buildup. Our high-powered vacuums can also quickly remove these freed particulates, keeping them from circulating through the air and affecting your employees or facility.

Removing fire effects from the HVAC and air ducts within your office building can reduce hazardous particulates and contaminants circulating through the facility after this disaster. Our experienced SERVPRO of Marlboro / Concord professionals have the cleaning system and expertise to overcome these effects in your office. Give us a call anytime at (978) 486-9868.

After A Pipe Has Burst In Your Concord Church, Call The Professionals At SERVPRO!

3/4/2019 (Permalink)

Let our SERVPRO of Marlboro / Concord rapid response team help by calling us whenever disaster strikes at (978) 486-9868.

Water Restoration From Burst Pipes In Your Concord Church

While many Concord residents and those responsible for your church believe that burst pipes only typically occur during the harsh winter months, this is not the case. Many conditions can allow for pipes to break and burst, and many of these include weakening of the metal plumbing on account of scaling, buildup, or rust affecting the inside and exterior of the pipes themselves. Breaches caused by any of these conditions can occur at any time of the year, so keeping yourself informed about the conditions of your plumbing and where repairs could be necessary is advisable.

Unfortunately, you might not regularly inspect the plumbing and individual pipes of your church, primarily because many of the portions of this network get hidden behind walls and underneath flooring. Whenever a pipe does burst, responding quickly to the situation can help to keep the damage from getting out of control. Our SERVPRO team offers a 24-hour response to emergencies, ensuring that all of our customers have access to the full measure of our restoration and mitigation tactics regardless of when disaster strikes in Concord.

This assurance begins with our fast response to the situation with leak detection equipment that can identify the point of the break and allow our team to remove the materials around this portion of plumbing exclusively. This fast identification of the source can allow our technicians the opportunity to repair the damaged portion of the pipe and get started on other mitigation tasks designed to preserve affected materials.

Our SERVPRO team aims to preserve damaged and saturated materials instead of tearing out and reconstructing. This practice can ultimately save our customers money and time by restoring saturated materials like hardwood flooring, carpeting, and furniture.

When pipes burst inside of your church, you want to ensure that restoration work can begin quickly to remain available to your congregation and their needs. Let our SERVPRO of Marlboro / Concord rapid response team help by calling us whenever disaster strikes at (978) 486-9868.

Wet Basements in Concord Can Ruin Important Business Documents--Call SERVPRO for Drying and Restoration

Protecting Stored Records in Your Concord Clinic’s Basement

Since your clinic moved into a space just big enough for all of your equipment and necessary examination rooms in the Concord business district, you had to utilize all of the available space out of the immediate main floor for storage of records and documentation in hard copy form. As promising as the basement area of the building seemed to be for the boxes of records, the aging blockwork has provided perpetual dampness and moisture that could threaten these documents. Our professionals can help.

As simple as it might seem to deal with a wet basement in your Concord clinic, there are some severe consequences to perpetual dampness that extend far beyond the records that you are keeping there. Dampness can allow for the production of mold, and with the cardboard boxes of paper records and documents, it does not take long for the spores present in that environment to seat into these materials and damage them permanently. Our SERVPRO professionals can help you to protect these records and to resolve the wet basement issues.

From the time that our professionals arrive at your facility, we can get to work quickly on identifying the source of the moisture in the basement of the clinic. This process can help our team to determine what can get done to prevent further dampness, whether that is sealing up penetration points in the blockwork with hydraulic cement or installing permanent equipment like sump pumps beneath the concrete floor of the basement to divert water from leeching up through the concrete.

To protect your documents, our contents department can remove them to the safety of a nearby facility of ours until the wet basement has gotten resolved. Our SERVPRO professionals on-site can set up air movers and dehumidifiers to quickly remove the moisture from the affected areas and monitor our progress to ensure that our long-term solutions remain effective at eliminating the penetrating water. We may suggest installing a permanent dehumidifier to maintain a steady Relative Humidity.

As vital as your clinic is, many patients might become uneasy at their records becoming destroyed by mold colonization or water damages. Let our SERVPRO of Marlboro / Concord restoration technicians help you to preserve these vital documents and the structural integrity of the building. Call anytime that you need us at (978) 486-9868.

Expert Help For Marlborough Office Wet Carpet Woes

SERVPRO's Water Extraction from Wet Carpets Mitigates Damages in Marlborough Commercial Properties

Wet and Water Damaged Commercial Carpets Get the Professional Service Needed for Restoration from SERVPRO in the Marlborough Area

Wall to wall carpet gives a professional look to your Marlborough office or hotel, but adequately maintaining it is necessary to preserve its appearance and function. Leaving the cleaning and repair of damage to your floor coverings to your housekeeping staff might not be the best choice, especially if a significant water incursion soaks your carpet. Our crews are experienced in resolving wet carpet issues and are available to help quickly.

If a water cooler or lobby aquarium breaks and spills in your Marlborough office, restoring and drying the wet carpet must be job one. Merely mopping up the moisture or renting a cleaner cannot give you the peace of mind a professional restoration delivers. Carpets take a beating even without the addition of excess water but are expensive and time-consuming to replace. IICRC trained technicians from our production teams approach the job of removing the water and drying the floor and carpet with strategies back by research and best practices.
Removing the carpet is an option, but that is disruptive to your business operations. SERVPRO crews receive advanced training on in-place drying of the floor, padding, and carpeting. When we arrive, we assess the extent of the water saturation and take steps to minimize further migration of the fluid to unaffected areas of the carpet. Drying the several layers of floor covering requires the operation of weighted extraction wands, using pressure to force the moisture out of carpeting and padding. Only certified technicians can ensure the repeated passes of the extractors do no damage the carpet further, including potential rips, tars, stretching, and delamination of the backing from the fibers. When commercial grade glue-down carpeting has been affected by a large water spillage, the requirements are different and can be covered in another blog article.
Sometimes it makes sense to remove and replace the padding, particularly when the water holds contaminants. This can be done in stages without requiring the entire carpet to be taken up at one time. As the areas under the padding are exposed, examination and drying of the underlying floor can occur. SERVPRO crews work closely with you, and our office provides a liaison to your insurance company as we complete the job to ensure the restoration efforts chosen, including replacement of parts of the carpeting system, are covered by your policy.
Cleaning, sanitizing, and thorough drying must also be a part of the procedure. SERVPRO uses effective and dedicated carpet cleaning solutions and EPA registered disinfectants after the water removal to ensure clean and sanitary conditions. We position supports and air movers to direct warm airflow over and under the carpet while running dehumidifiers to speed the water vapor migration out of the fibers.
SERVPRO of Marlboro / Concord is ready to assist when a water spill or crisis soaks your office carpet. Call (978) 486-9868 immediately to avoid secondary damage -- reach us 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Returning A Marlborough Hotel Room To Non-Smoker Odor-Free Status

SERVPRO Can Eliminate Odors from Marlborough Hotels and Residential Properties

SERVPRO Remedies Odor Problems in Commercial Establishments in the Marlborough Area

As a hospitality and lodging provider, you want each of your guests to find comfort and relaxation in their Marlborough hotel room. You make a promise to guests that request a non-smoking room that their environment is free of the smell and residues associated with cigarettes while staying at your hotel. Our deodorization technicians and innovative equipment may be your answer.
When guests check into the non-smoking room your staff prepared for them, the success of any odor removal techniques used in your Marlborough hotel is on trial. If a previous guest ignored the signs and smoked in the room, your non-smoking customers may be upset at the lingering odor. Effective odor removal often requires trying many approaches until one works, and our OCT, odor control technicians, IICRC-certified crews are familiar with this process.
Upon arrival, SERVPRO’s crew lead assess the room or rooms that need odor removal. Although it may seem that the smell is airborne only, we seek out other, remediable sources. Furnishings and carpeting attract and hold the tiny particles of ash, tar, and other substances incompletely burned. We start with a thorough cleaning, including the upholstery and carpet using our commercial strength steam extractors and professional cleaning products.
Nicotine and other substances can stain walls and from there emit smells. Our crews wash walls with appropriate cleaners. SERVPRO might suggest repainting the walls and sealing wooden portions of furnishings and headboards to keep odor penetrating beneath these surfaces from vaporizing. Frequently each room has a separate heating and cooling system, and we also inspect and clean the vents and any ductwork to prevent the smoke smells from recirculating.
SERVPRO also can access resources that eliminate odors by changing the chemical composition of the minute particles floating in the air and embedded in surfaces and fixtures. One option is thermal fogging, a process where air cleaners combust in a heated chamber and then bond with and render smell-free the particles remaining in the room. Other resources include hydroxyl generators and other oxygenation systems. A form of UV light creates the hydroxyl radicals that then react with solid pollutants like cigarette smoke and help destroy them. These processes eliminate the odors, not just cover them up like most air fresheners.
Efficient and profitable management of your hotel requires all rooms possible are available, and SERVPRO of Marlboro / Concord is ready to deodorize areas of your premises damaged by previous guests smoking in spaces designated “non-smoking.” Call for a consultation at (978) 486-9868.

Deodorization For The Odors That Imperil Your Concord Business

5/29/2018 (Permalink)

Make Your Concord Business Center "Purr with Purity," Call SERVPRO for Odor Control and Improved IAQ

Concord Enterprises Turn to SERVPRO for Odor Control and Abatement

Businesses come and go throughout Concord, and some of the ones that are on their way out of the picture can leave an unwelcome reminder of their presence by a lingering odor in the building or strip center unit that traditional cleaning and deodorizing spray cannot overcome. Your new office could have recently experienced a fire before you acquired it, for instance. Your new restaurant dining area could get positioned in what used to be the locker room for a local athletic team. The list goes on. Fortunately, in circumstances where you have a persistent odor to overcome, and you cannot seem to handle it alone, you can count on professional restoration.

Regardless of what is causing the lingering foul odor in your Concord building, you want to be able to separate your new business from whatever happened in that space before. Our SERVPRO restoration specialists can help you through our expertise and sophisticated equipment to remove this persistent problem once and for all.

When our team arrives at your building, we go over the entire facility to ensure that there are no apparent sources of the odor, and to assess how widespread this effect is throughout your building. To remove this odor, our SERVPRO technicians often employ thermal fogging machines throughout all of the affected areas. This process integrates open areas, surfaces, furniture, fabrics, and textiles into the deodorization efforts.

This machine emits a chemical compound that can break apart foul odor molecules in the air and those that embed into surfaces and fabrics. This process neutralizes the molecules and leaves no discernable smell behind. Our SERVPRO OCT odor control technician may set up an air scrubber or two that utilizes several different types of filters. A HEPA, high-efficiency particulate absorber filter, can capture airborne motes as small as 0.3 microns that may contain smoke, dander, pollen, mold spores, and varying odorous materials. The second filter is activated carbon, well-known as an odor eater. Purifying the ambient environment and improving the IAQ indoor air quality offer benefits to employees, clients, customers for a sense of well-being and even less sick days.

Whether you are overcoming a disaster of your own doing or trying to separate your business from its distinctly smelly past, professional restoration can help you through every step. When it comes to deodorization and restoration for your business, regardless of the source, SERVPRO of Marlboro / Concord can show you how to reclaim your space. Give our experienced restoration specialists a call 24/7 at (978) 486-9868.

Odor Removal Experts can Make Your Commercial Setting in Marlborough Like New Again

Buildings in the Marlborough Area Rely on SERVPRO for Odor Control and Good Indoor Air Quality

SERVPRO Restores Good Indoor Air Quality with Commercial Odor Control

Circumstances beyond our control can lead to unwelcome developments, including odors that seem to come from nowhere. When your commercial building in Marlborough develops such a problem, knowing that solutions exist can set your mind at ease. Welcoming clients and potential partners to your business can happen more easily when you and your employees feel confident and at ease. An odor permeating your building can prevent that from happening.
Marlborough businesses in need of odor removal can get help. SERVPRO specialists include IICRC-certified Odor Control Technicians (OCT) who can combat the odors making your business' atmosphere unpleasant. The cause of such odors helps determine the most appropriate methods.
Our methods use the latest in technological advances so you can rest assured that your building's odor problem becomes a thing of the past. We work hard to improve IAQ indoor air quality. Some causes that may exist in your building include vermin in enclosed spaces, smoke from fires or hidden smoking of cigarettes, and cooking odors that permeated into non-kitchen areas. The list goes on with dirty HVAC or furnace systems that caused puff-backs.
After we discover and solve the cause of such odor, we can begin eliminating the residual effects left behind. Rodents and other pests leave nests behind, as well as other debris. Raccoon urine latrines require the discarding of tainted insulation. Removing this, then sanitizing the area often removes the source of the offensive odors. However, when liquids permeate into absorbent materials, these may require removal, followed by replacements, to solve the problem.
Smoke can deposit tar, from cigarettes, or soot, from the burning of wood, papers, and plastics, which combusted during a fire. Thermal fogging can help in this situation, as its forced fog carries deodorizing agents into the same small crevices that the smoke entered. This method produces excellent results and does not require a building to remain closed for long periods, if at all.
Cooking odors, including those from grease fires, require special cleaning agents that remove the grease and soot produced by the fire. When odors travel on air currents to non-related areas, as in a hotel, these areas also require treatment.
SERVPRO of Marlboro / Concord can help your business smell as it should once again. Call us at (978) 486-9868 for odor removal services tailored to your exact needs. We are always available to answer your questions, from that first phone call through the completion of the job.

SERVPRO Delivers On Odor Removal For Concord Businesses

3/27/2018 (Permalink)

Call SERVPRO to Eliminate Unpleasant Odors from Your Concord Office

From Eateries to Offices, SERVPRO Eliminates Odors

Any number of different causes can underlie an odor problem for a Concord business. Water and smoke damage after a catastrophic event are obvious reasons, but other sources of unpleasant smells can include mold, decaying organic matter, and even volatile organic compounds from remodeling or planned maintenance. We invest in the training and equipment to solve these smelly challenges.

Odors in a Concord commercial location are unacceptable, especially if your customers or guests notice and it decreases their approval of your business. Our odor removal specialists complete IICRC certification as Odor Control Technicians and then employ a number of strategies to eliminate malodors.
Removing debris and thorough cleaning often does the trick. Odor control is almost always one of the final steps in a fire, water, or mold remediation, becoming the focus after cleanup and other restorative tasks fail to eradicate lingering smells. Professionally formulated sprays and treatments that use enzymes work on some smells. Our SERVPRO also invests in innovative equipment such as thermal foggers and hydroxyl generators to neutralize odor-bearing particles at the molecular level if necessary.
Understanding how the smell invaded is the key to elimination. If the smell traces to a dead animal discovered in a storage area, the surfaces it infiltrated can need sealing. Smoky smells respond to thermal fogging, as the super-heated delivery of the deodorizer replicated the way the smell spread through the space. Equipment is available to produce neutralizing particles that seek out odiferous airborne or settled and embedded molecules, an exciting and compelling option that manages a broad range of stenches. Our SERVPRO employees are well-versed on the tactics the restoration industry finds to be best practices to deal with hard to eliminate smells.
Do-it-yourself remedies a business or a traditional cleaning service might try often result in a short-term effect. The smell can fade, but then return over time or when the indoor environment changes. Cover-ups are not a sustainable answer and can add to the unpleasant odor load and even cause irritation to your customers and employees. SERVPRO odor removal services offer a permanent remedy to this frustrating problem, not just a temporary masking solution.
SERVPRO of Marlboro / Concord is ready to get to the root of your odor issues and resolve them. Call (978) 486-9868 for an evaluation and to schedule odor removal treatments that work.

Marlborough Duct Work Maintenance Avoids Winter Woes

9/2/2017 (Permalink)

Duct Cleaning in Marlborough by SERVPRO Saves You Many and Provides Better Indoor Air Quality

Keep Cool & Warm When SERVPRO Inspects and Cleans HVAC Systems

The duct work in Marlborough homes and businesses is designed to handle changes in temperature, even extreme weather like we have seen over the last couple of years. There are still weak points in every system though, and they are not always easy to see until the seasons change and suddenly the monthly heating or cooling bill skyrockets.

Preparing the duct work in a Marlborough home or business for the winter is not technically challenging, but the task still needs a professional service to ensure the job is completed right the first time. SERVPRO has extensive experience with duct work and HVAC systems in Massachusetts. Proper circulation of air in furnace systems helps reduce the chance of puff backs resulting in messy, costly cleanup. Checking for clean filters, and vacuuming out ducts when needed can also ensure a better quality of indoor air to the structure.

Often, the problems are caused by water from a leak in the roof or along the eaves of the home or commercial building. It can happen over a single season, summer or winter. When water collects on the surface of the ducts, nuts, bolts, and screws can rust. If the water drips down over the brackets, then the damage to the wood beams suspending the conduits can cause the screws or bolts to pull away and shift thanks to the weight of the system.

Moving ducts means they bend and the joints start to twist. Now, the inside air that is supposed to heat your home or business is leaking into the crawlspaces. Our technicians are trained to spot these problems and the potential for them.

The cost of replacement parts is usually cheap. Individual brackets and several handfuls of nuts and bolts only run a few dollars. Depending on the size and extent of the ducts, we can usually finish each job in a day or two. For large, commercial buildings, a full inspection, and repair may take four or five days total.

Our area has not been hit as hard by weather as other parts of the country, and the forecast looks fairly good as well. Now is the perfect opportunity to contact SERVPRO of Marlboro / Concord to prepare your HVAC ducts for the coming winter. If you need our services, call today at (978) 486-9868.

Stabilizing A Concord Warehouse After Water Removal

8/23/2017 (Permalink)

Concord Businesses Protect Inventory from Water Damage with Rapid Response from SERVPRO

SERVPRO Extracts Water and Preserves Contents in Concord Structures

Concord warehouse owners know all too well the risk of water damage to their premises. Water that enters a storage area might damage both the facility itself and everything stored there. Concerns about water damage are justified no matter what kind of warehouse you run – and it is even more worrying if you happen to store food or flowers or anything else that needs to be kept under controlled temperature and humidity.
The first thing to do after a leak or flood in your Concord warehouse is to call SERVPRO for water removal services. Our expert teams arrive ready to remove all the water using a combination of free-standing, truck-mounted and submersible pumps. However, water removal is only the first step in remediating the situation. Our overall aim is to restore your warehouse “Like it never even happened.”
We understand how important it is that your premises have optimum conditions as concerns temperature and humidity. That is why our IICRC-certified technicians pay such close attention to measuring the moisture and humidity and devising an appropriate drying plan.
We equip our teams with a range of perfectly calibrated instruments, including thermal hygrometers, moisture meters and probes, and thermal imaging software. Thermo hygrometers measure the humidity in the air, or in other words the amount of moisture the air is currently holding. Meantime, we use moisture meters and probes to measure the moisture content of particular parts of the warehouse, such as the walls, storage units, or under the floor. Finally, thermal imaging techniques allow us to see hidden patches of moisture that we could not detect with the naked eye.
Once we have a clear overview of the situation in your premises, we devise a drying plan to restore it to the best temperature and humidity. Drying out something as large as a warehouse is a challenge, but do not worry. Our experienced teams are well versed in how to calculate the correct number and placement of dehumidifiers and air movers for maximum effect.
Stabilizing the conditions in your warehouse is a vital part of recovery after water removal, and you can rely on SERVPRO to get the job done right. Protecting the contents is our highest priority.
SERVPRO of Marlboro / Concord is on hand to help with any water removal process for Marlborough, Concord, and Littleton. Simply call us today at (978) 486-9868 for help and advice.
