Commercial Water Removal in a Durham Insurance Agency
The day-to-day at an office can be quite busy, especially if your day is full of telephone calls and interfacing with customers shopping for insurance plans. You may stop in the restroom to wash your hands after lunch, only to find that you forgot to turn off a sink that is prone to backing up, which can leave water all over the floor of your office's restroom that seeps into the hallway carpet.
If an unexpected pipe leak causes commercial water removal in your Durham insurance agency, SERVPRO technicians are ready to come to your business to mitigate the damage and leave your office looking, as we like to say, "Like it never even happened."
Tile is a semi-porous surface that is highly resistant to water, so cleaning up your company restroom can be performed with industrial-grade wet/dry vacuums. For carpet, in cases where the padding has not begun to separate from it, our SERVPRO team can use such tools as the Rover extractor to remove water. By using the body weight of the technician, moisture can be sucked up from carpet to prevent permanent damage or delamination of your office's carpet.
After removing the water from your floors, drying can commence with the help of our centrifugal air movers and low grain refrigerant (LGR) dehumidifiers. The LGR works much like the air handler in an air conditioner and works in tandem with polyethylene sheeting laid on the carpet and taped down to channel moist air to an exit point, such as a window. Moisture is evaporated into the air by air movers and continually replaced with dry air from the dehumidifiers. Our technicians can monitor the drying process carefully, particularly with carpet, using a variety of tools including moisture sensors and thermo-hygrometers.
SERVPRO of Durham is ready to help you with any size disaster. If you need our services to restore your commercial facility after suffering water damage, give us a call today at (603) 868-3343.

Newmarket Property Management Companies Count on SERVPRO for Rapid Water Loss Mitigation
That's Right! Call SERVPRO When You Need Water Loss Cleanup and Restoration in Newmarket
Fast Commercial Water Removal Minimizes Damage to Newmarket Apartment Units
Water damage can be devastating to a structure if it is not addressed as soon as possible after the initial water intrusion. Whether it is from a water line failure, broken dishwasher in a unit or other reason, you should seek help now or at least within 48 hours; any standing water needs to be handled as a hazardous black water situation if it is left to stagnate.
When you contact SERVPRO for commercial water removal in your Newmarket apartment complex, our local emergency response team arrives on site within hours to begin cleanup. Since drywall can absorb water, units that could potentially be affected by water are inspected. We do not rely solely on visual assessment to determine if building materials are compromised by moisture. We use digital probes that measure moisture behind walls and subflooring, so there are no hidden odor or mold issues when surfaces appear dry. The health and well being of your tenants is our priority.
Depending on the amount of standing water in the property, our technicians have various methods to extract water from the unit or units quickly. If it is a clean water spill, a weighted extractor pushes excess water from carpet padding, and we can direct airflow under carpeting to thoroughly dry subflooring and padding from the bottom up with the use of air movers and dehumidifiers in tandem.
Drywall is absorbent and pulls water up. If drywall between apartment units is affected, complete drying is crucial for the removal of moisture or structural damage and mold can be secondary damages that occur. If the drywall or building materials are found to be saturated, SERVPRO technicians drill weep holes to drain water and carefully set up air movers to direct air behind drywall to ensure there is not an ideal place for mold colonies to set up home which can happen as quickly as 24-48 hours after a water spill. At times, we can perform a controlled demolition to remove saturated materials or to inspect wall or floor voids.
Contact SERVPRO of Durham at (603) 868-3343 for fast and efficient commercial water removal from your property. Our technicians are available 24/7 and have the equipment to extract water quickly and the expertise to help avoid secondary damage from water through fast action. We're Faster To Any Size Disaster.

Our Fire Damage Specialists Can Restore Your Durham Bakery!
To combat the fire damage in your Durham bakery effectively, and efficiently, it is imperative for you to call for help as soon as possible.
What You Can Do When Fire Damage Strikes Your Durham Bakery
Dealing with fire damage is never something any business owner wants to deal with but, unfortunately, accidents can happen. A faulty plug attached to one of your ovens caused a small electric fire to break out. However, before the blaze could grow to disastrous proportions, your sprinkler system managed to snuff the fire out. While the fire was suppressed, some key issues remain behind, needing immediate attention from professional cleanup and remediation services. The back wall of your bakery is scorched from the flame, covered in greasy soot. Furthermore, your bakery is filled with powder, which came from the sprinkler system designed to snuff out the flames.
To combat the fire damage in your Durham bakery effectively, and efficiently, it is imperative for you to call for help as soon as possible. Getting professionals into your kitchen can allow them to remediate the scorch marks left behind by the flames, and the bits of melted rubber from the heavy-duty chord that caused the fire. The longer than it takes for professionals to arrive at the scene, the more difficult the job becomes. As soot sits, it causes discoloration, and it cools, allowing it to adhere to the surface. Quickly addressing the soot means that the remediation can be more likely to succeed.
SERVPRO understands how important your business is, and we will work around your clock. No matter the time that you find the damage, we can be there within a couple of hours to remediate. Our IICRC-certified technicians are ready to swiftly travel to your business and help you get it back to its preloss state.
Once SERVPRO arrives at your bakery, we can remove the malfunctioning commercial oven inside the kitchen. With it gone, we can have access to the scorch marks that were behind it. SERVPRO can use a chemical cleaning solution to spray onto the damage and begin to break up the soot. Our technicians may have to repeat this several times, but with each time we're able to remove a little more soot.
SERVPRO can clean up your kitchen after we have removed the soot. The powder everywhere is a problem, and we don't want you to have to do extra work. Our technicians can thoroughly remove all of the suppressant powder and then use an odor-sealing priming paint on the wall, to erase any evidence that a fire ever happened in your kitchen.
If malfunctioning equipment causes a fire to strike your business, never hesitate to call for help. Use your phone to call and speak with SERVPRO of Durham by dialing (603) 868-3343. We're always ready to swiftly help you.

You Have the Questions, SERVPRO Has the Answers for Commercial Water Loss Mitigation in Durham
Hey, A Big "Thumbs Up" for SERVPRO Water Removal to Our Commercial Center in Durham
Commercial Water Removal Can Solve Problems from a Leaky Roof Over Your Durham Office Building
Rain showers often leave Durham with a sweet fresh scent. Depending on your roofing type, any number of situations could have caused the leak. Last winter's ice dams, rodent and bird pests over the summer, or even shoddy work or faulty materials the last time your roof received any maintenance can all create a leaky roof.
When your office building holds a messy surprise for you after a rainstorm hits overnight, commercial water removal can help restore your Durham property. SERVPRO can get things back to normal and keep damages low. We do this by working together as a team, and also by including you in the restoration process. We realize that many people rely on your building for their daily operations and activities, and when it falters, a business can suffer. By minimizing interruptions as much as possible, this can keep your business thriving.
Our services are scalable, so if the amount of water requires a truck-mounted pump with submersible attachments, we can supply this for your needs. If hand-held units should suffice, then this can help keep costs lower than using larger pumps. Either approach is followed by SERVPRO technicians extracting all of the moisture out of the materials that sustained direct rainfall. Other materials nearby can also retain water, and we quickly dry these out, as well. Large air movers and desiccant machines get the moisture contained quickly. Dehumidification also addresses the moisture in the air and steadily decreases it back to normal again.
Wall and office dividers can also retain substantial amounts of water. We can take these outside so they can air dry quickly without loading the air with the evaporated moisture. Other furniture, such as upholstered chairs, sofas, and the like can also dry more quickly outdoors, in an unaffected area of the building, or whatever options are available to expedite the drying process.
Carpeting also needs to dry as quickly as possible. We often float carpets, where we can direct airflow both above and below the rug. The manner in which we do this prevents unnecessary stretching. This method requires us to move all the furniture out of the room. After we achieve dryness in the carpet, we can deodorize it. Water removal may leave furnishings and materials dry, but odor can linger. Hydroxyl generators using UV light offers treatments that can effectively remove these odors. When we bring the furnishings back in, they can also benefit from hydroxyl treatment. This gas is safe around plants, damp carpet and upholstery, and occupants, situations where we cannot safely use ozone.
SERVPRO of Durham assists businesses of all sizes in the Newmarket and Madbury areas with water removal services and other mitigation techniques. Contact us whenever your business requires professional services to remain safe. Our 24-hour service number is (603) 868-3343.

Remediating Commercial Fire Damage To Durham Shops
Business fires in Durham usually extinguish thanks to sprinklers and other fire suppression systems quickly.
Remediating Commercial Fire Damage
Business fires in Durham usually extinguish thanks to sprinklers and other fire suppression systems quickly. That limits the physical damage from actual heat and flames, but there are still problems with smoke or soot residues and the odors they can cause.
Lingering odors are often the last concern after commercial fire damage to a Durham business. For a specialty business, like a coffee shop, SERVPRO understands that eliminating odors is just as, if not more, important than other restoration concerns. Fortunately, many of the methods needed to remove odors are the same for cleaning smoke damaged furniture and structural property.
The first step to eliminate odors is to remove damage property from inside the business and increase air movement. Team members remove tables, chairs, sofas, and other items to the outside if weather permits. Our personnel can set up tents on-site, move items to temporary storage, or bring them to our facility if needed to clean them. With everything outside, team members set up fans and air movers to increase circulation.
As the air starts to clear of odors, SERVPRO technicians begin cleaning surfaces. For metal surfaces on the coffee brewers and other appliances, wiping them down with a sponge and a mild cleaner removes the odor-causing residues in most cases. If the residue is very sticky or thick, the technician may need a stronger cleaning agent or a soft-bristled scrub brush. These remove the residue without marring the surface of the appliance.
Meanwhile, other technicians use sponge mops and cloths to wipe down ceilings, walls, and floors. If there are odor-causing residues in area rugs, specialists use commercial rug shampooers with a strong carpet cleaner to remove them. If the residues are exceptionally thick, the team leader may decide that it is cheaper to remove and dispose of the area rug than to expend the labor hours and materials to try and remove them.
Outside, technicians can wipe down most furniture using the same materials and tools as with the appliances. If there are upholstered items like some sofas and easy chairs, it may be necessary to use a fogger to force a cloud of cleaning particles through the surface of the fabric and into the padding underneath. For thicker residues, technicians can also use an immersion tank that generates bubbles and forces them through the upholstery.
If you have had a fire in your business, you should remove the residues left by it as quickly as possible. To eliminate the residues and the odors they cause, contact SERVPRO of Durham at (603) 868-3343 today. We are here for you.

Unexpected Water Damage In Your Durham Retail Store
Don't Be a Dummy, Call SERVPRO for Water Damage Cleanup at Your Durham Clothing Store
Durham Areas Businesses Rely on SERVPRO When in Need of Water Cleanup and Restoration
The strip center that you have your Durham store in likely was not constructed specially for your business. This arrangement of your store situated in the building likely came about due to several other businesses once existing in this spot and moving on for one reason or another. The trouble with aging buildings is that when you move from one leaser to the next, the upkeep up of the building suffers from a lack of concentrated attention.
Over time, elements intended to keep external threats out such as the roof of the building erode and degrade with the winter's freeze and the spring's thawing warmth. Without inspection of this building done on an annual basis, you might be entirely unaware of threats that exist in the immediate future when a severe weather situation occurs. Now you are contending with water damages in your Durham retail store.
Our SERVPRO professionals have the experience and rapid response to help you mitigate much of the damage that your building would receive from such an occurrence. This fact is dependent on the immediacy of your call, however. The objective is to remove the possibility of the situation getting worse by tarping or boarding up leaks and penetrations of your roof to allow our technicians to get to work on restoring what damage exists inside.
Our team of professionals focuses on getting the inside dry and the mess cleaned up so that your business can continue as you would prefer. Regarding getting the roof repaired, our SERVPRO team works alongside many reputable contractors in the area and can help you find a suitable commercial roofing team to repair the damage and assess for more pressing issues.
There are no good ways to prepare for even a small water emergency in your store. Insurance is always an option. With so many high traffic areas and investments that you have made in the stock of the store, there is no time to waste on getting the situation addressed. Give our SERVPRO of Durham specialists a call whenever you need us at (603) 868-3343.

Restoration of Commercial Water Damage Protects Durham Bakeries from Future Crises
Keep the sweet treats in stock with water damage restoration with SERVPRO.
Water Damage Restoration by SERVPRO
Fresh bread out of the oven smells terrific, but few people can take the time to do this on a regular basis. Most residents in Durham rely on local bakeries to supply the needs of fresh baked goods, from loaves of bread to sweet doughnuts and other treats. Bakeries must adhere to strict standards of cleanliness regarding both equipment and building interiors.
One disaster that can make continued production difficult for a bakery in Durham is the existence of commercial water damage. This kind of damage comes in many forms and can cover a large area in a bakery's building, sometimes before you notice its presence. SERVPRO professionals know how to remove the effects of this and other kinds of damage that can happen within a business' interior. Removing such damage and anything affected by it starts the restoration process.
We clean damaged or otherwise adversely affected equipment, including mixers, bakeware, utensils, counters, and cabinetry. SERVPRO works with many local businesses so they can remain vital parts of our local economy and your bakery, like other food-producing businesses, must follow regulations to provide a healthy product to the public. The friendly restoration experts at SERVPRO know how to mitigate such damaging effects and keep them from spreading further.
Crumbling walls and other structural components, flaking paint and varnishes, deteriorating plastics and rubber trim, and other problems may not seem substantial enough to create concern. However, such decay can permit rodent and insect infestations to develop. These problems can undoubtedly pose health hazards to your employees, also, and create an unsafe working environment. SERVPRO understands the enormity of such situations and works quickly to restore safe conditions for both your employees and your customers again.
Removing such materials and replacing them helps restore the state of your building, but we also must locate the source of the water. In rare cases, we find that the water's intrusion was a one-time event, such as an overflowing basin, but in the majority of situations, ongoing leaks or drips cause water damage. We stop these after locating them with our moisture detection devices, including infrared imaging scanners.
SERVPRO of Durham wants to help your bakery rise to the top once again after you discover signs of water damage in your building. Call us at (603) 868-3343 if your bakery is located in or around Newmarket or Madbury and we can help you make it "Like it never even happened."

Tools For Water Damage Remediation In Your Durham Business
When there has been a plumbing failure of any kind in your Durham business, it can create a lot of commercial water damage.
Water Damage Remediation
Plumbing fixture failures or faulty installations are the primary cause of interior water damage to businesses in Durham. Minor clogs and leaks should be handled properly since they can be the signs of more severe issues in your Durham deli. If an appliance, pipe, fixture, or hose contains running water, it must be maintained correctly and to prevent any losses related to water.

Letting our staff at SERVPRO help you instead is the smart choice, as we have all the tools needed to not only clean up the damage but to find any hidden moisture, too.

The goal of SERVPRO technicians is to return all materials to their normal moisture content levels. We use moisture meters to find the moisture content of various materials to help us figure out if a structure is dry.

A moisture sensor is used to detect excess moisture in soft materials. It has sharp probes which penetrate through carpets and padding so we can figure out how far the water has gone. We can only detect that water is present with this tool, however, and cannot measure the amount of water that is there.
Thermo-hygrometers measure both relative humidity and temperature. Some can even measure the dew point. With the readings from these devices, in conjunction with a psychrometric chart or calculator, helps us to figure out the specific humidity.
SERVPRO of Durham has the necessary tools to help us determine where the moisture in your water damaged business in Epping, Kingston, or Newfields is. You can get in touch with us anytime you need by dialing (603) 868-3343.

Power Outages Can Cause Water Damage to Your Durham Grocery Store
Your customers depend on your store location to provide them with groceries for their meals. When facing water damage, it is best to contact SERVPRO
Team SERVPRO Arrives Equipped to Tackle Water Damage on Your Commercial Property
Grocery stores in Durham offer a steady supply of food and produce to the residents here. As with any grocery location, there are often several aisles of frozen fare. When a power outage strikes, these units offer the potential for severe damages to your store when the foods inside start to thaw. This problem continues to get worse the longer that your establishment is without power.
When you are dealing with commercial water damages to your Durham store, you are often concerned about the losses in profit that you are going to sustain. While the immediate water damage is apparently one of the primary concerns that you have, you also have to think about the loss of the products as they spoil in the cooling units and the loss of customer traffic as the mess is cleaned up.
While local utility companies often promptly work to restore power to your building, often the damage has already been sustained. Before you get your doors opened back up again to customers, you have to clean up and restore the area to eliminate the possibility of customer injuries and to mitigate further losses from damage from lingering water on electrical units and the flooring of the store. When facing a considerable mess like this, you should consider giving our SERVPRO team a call.
No matter what time of the day it is, our team is ready to help you bring your store back to preloss conditions. While our SERVPRO professionals might not be able to restore the damage to the frozen products that you have had within these units that were shut down, they can ensure that the water damage that it caused gets dried completely.
As you know, the sooner that this damage gets restored and you remove the water in the affected area, the sooner that you can allow customers back into the store and continue making money as usual. Allow our emergency response team to quickly assess the damage and get to work on cleaning up the mess. Clean-up allows you to get things back to normal much more quickly than attempting to resolve the problem on your own.
You cannot predict when incidents like extended power outages are going to occur. When the ensuing water damage affects your business, give SERVPRO of Durham a call. We can be reached 24/7 at (603) 868-3343.

Student Tenants Cause Water Removal Challenges In Durham
Apartment and Store Front Buildings Benefit from SERVPRO 's Rapid Water Removal Services in Durham
Durham Apartments Benefit from Swift SERVPRO Water Extraction Services
Landlords who cater to college students may be able to chuckle after a crisis is averted, but rookie tenant mistakes can result in the need for Durham commercial water removal services. Overflowing sinks and tubs or malfunctioning toilets are common causes of water problems in student housing. Our fast and trained teams of technicians help subdue the damage.
Inexperience with doing laundry caused some of your freshmen tenants to overstuff a couple of washers in the basement utility area, requiring emergency water removal in your Durham apartment building. The abused clothes washing equipment spewed many gallons of water throughout the basement of the complex, threatening storage areas, other machines in the laundry room and the HVAC system. Our experienced crew arrives within hours of your call and gets directly to work removing the water.
We assess the safety of working in several inches of water before putting our equipment to work. If the power must be shut off to prevent electrical shock, SERVPRO workers take full advantage of our truck mounted pumps and water extractors to suction out the water using our vehicles to provide electricity. While the pumps and extractors work on reducing the volume of standing water, our technicians take baseline moisture measurements to determine drying goals for floors and walls in the affected area.
Air movers and dehumidifiers positioned professionally begin the task of moving moisture out of structural elements and fixtures like flooring or wallboard. SERVPRO technicians also evaluate the flooded area to discover if any hidden water remains. The cinder block construction of many lower levels can retain water inside the open cells of each block or behind paneling or drywall. We extract this water when found as it risks microbial growth and material deterioration. Tactics like drilling through mortar joints and removing sections of wall covering releases the water to avoid secondary damage.
Tenant storage areas pose a challenge, but SERVPRO responds by packing out boxes and items in harm’s way, staging it in another area of the apartment building for renters to review their possessions. We can extend the option for exclusive drying techniques like freeze drying when the water damages documents. We work with your insurance to help you and your tenants make decisions on which items are worth expensive drying efforts and which may need disposal.
When your renters turn laundry day into a flood, call SERVPRO of Durham for reliable water removal services. Our office staff dispatches crews as soon as possible after your initial contact at (603) 868-3343.

Commercial Water Damage Signs to Look Out For in Your Durham Business
Retail and Grocery Stores in Durham Do Not Need Water on the Floor, Only in Bottles
SERVPRO Provides Removal After Water Intrusions Mitigating Damage and Odors
A faulty plumbing system is a serious threat to Durham retail stores. The water leaking from the broken pipes can ruin the walls, roofs, tiles, and any documents it comes across. The results can be terrifying. It could set the business several months behind and potentially cause the loss of important files.
A competent restoration company is the best weapon against commercial water damage in Durham. As a locally-based business, SERVPRO is a part of your community and understands your needs. We have a stock of up-to-date water damage restoration equipment, as well as highly trained technicians on standby. Following IICRC recommendations, we can return your business to normal conditions within no time, "Like it never even happened."
There are many methods of determining the presence of commercial water damage. In some cases, you may be able to hear water damage without actually seeing it. For instance, it may sound like creaking floorboards, rushing water, or dripping water. Of course, these sounds may also be present with a perfectly functional plumbing system. The idea is to identify signs of a change in the plumbing system.
You can also use your sense of smell to detect water damage within the store. Dampness has a distinct odor that sometimes comes with the pungent smell of mold. Watch out for other indicators of moisture damage such as a pool of water from a leaking or dripping pipe. If you come across an unusual puddle, keep an eye on it after cleaning it up to see if it returns. If it does, you may be dealing with a seepage or leakage.
Mold growth usually goes hand in hand with water damage. The presence of mold suggests that the area has too much moisture that needs to be removed immediately by drying. Mold has a unique, irritating smell, and can cause health effects. Discoloration on certain materials or surfaces in the store is a strong sign of water damage. SERVPRO professionals can help you repair the problem and restore the water-damaged materials.
In your efforts to push your business to the pinnacle of success, you cannot afford to lose time due to commercial water damage. SERVPRO of Durham is strategically located and has many years of experience offering water damage restoration services. For any emergency, we are available 24/7 at (603) 868-3343.
