Commercial Commercial Water Removal Can Mitigate Damage from Flooding in Your Grafton Antique Shop Call SERVPRO quickly to save your artifacts from damage after storm or water damage event.

SERVPRO Technicians Take Great Care When Dealing with Delicate Items

Antiques are high on many people's list of the more interesting things in life – the ability to see how generations of the past lived and functioned satisfies the curiosity of many people. Others also believe that things today are not made as well as they used to be, and find that they prefer antique items over more recently made equivalents. This creates a strong market for the antiques business. Damage to your inventory can create irreparable losses, simply due to the scarcity of the items comprising your stock. 
 
When your Grafton location experiences flooding, you need commercial water removal efforts to begin immediately. This is the best and most thorough way to protect your investment. Saving the most delicate items may not always be possible, but when efforts to remove water begin earlier, much more damage is prevented. We know that items such as letters, photographs, books, and even items that are special because of the autograph they carry may be damaged, so we will do our part in providing adequate descriptions of these items, aiding you in the process of recovering those losses through your insurance carrier. 
 
Our Commercial Drying Specialist (CDS) knows the complexities involved in regaining a dry state, even when many different items are involved. Because the time periods involved most likely are spread out over several decades at a minimum, we know that we must work as quickly as possible to provide you with the best results. Preserving the patina that shows use and age while also preserving the piece as a whole is something that only an expert can do successfully after a flood situation, regardless of the source of water. Flooding from external sources can create a mess no matter what business type you are involved in, of course, but internal sources can create inventory losses in settings where priceless antiques are displayed that other businesses might not face. Commercial water removal includes even the smallest stock items. 
 
Preserving years' worth of inventory and protecting your financial security is something you cannot afford to skimp on. Call us, SERVPRO of Shrewsbury / Westborough at (508) 757-7885, for any size disaster and we can help you protect your assets with commercial water removal services.

Fire Damage Did you Know UV Technology can be used to fix Fire Damage in our Local Homes? Even the worst of fire damage can be cleaned and fixed! Call SERVPRO right after the damage to make sure your home can be restored!

SERVPRO Technicians Have Many Methods at Their Disposal When It Comes To Smoke Damage Remediation 

When a fire breaks out in a residential building, It does not usually burn for long. In most cases, Help arrives quickly and neutralizes the danger. This reason is because, the most common challenge associated with the fire damage repairs is not burnt items . It is the lingering, acrid odors which hang around after the flames are put out. 

At SERVPRO, we use a broad variety of techniques to eliminate these smells. Deodorization is the most important because it introduces odor fighting chemicals to the affected environment. Crucially, they get dispersed throughout the space in a very specific way. we call this " recreating the odor conditions" and it is a big part of repairing fire damage. 

In some cases, UV lamps and detection equipment is brought on site to aid with the deodorization process. 

External Deodorization 

When it comes to large areas and whole rooms, the usual strategy is to deodorize the entire space. SERVPRO sets up ozone generators and leaves them running to fill the smoky room with odor-killing, neutralizing, masking, or pairing chemicals 

Sometimes, we use dry and wet foggers to distribute the substances in a "mist" like form. It ensures that they are small enough to penetrate porous materials like wood and fabrics. This is important because, If the particles are too large, they got trapped at the surface. 

UV technology becomes becomes useful during the later stages when we are trying to target he remaining pockets of odor. They may, for example, be inside cupboards, crawlspace, of crevices. UV lights, in some cases, are helpful way to find evidence of these odor trails. 

Internal Deodorization

In the event that external techniques are not sufficient, SERVPRO may temporarily pull the carpet back. As it is such a large piece of porous fabric, it has the potential to hold lots of odor particles. Often, it makes sense to lift it up, expose the padding, and extract any sections any sections of subflooring which smells bad. 

Following this, the technicians clean both sides of the carpet, seal the base floor the neutralize lingering odors, and replace the old padding with new material. Depending on the severity of the fire and the extent of the smoke damage, we may suggest a comprehensive steam clean for the carpet afterward. 

At SERVPRO of Shrewsury/Westborough, we have access to cutting-edge equipment and technology. If you need help ridding your home of stubborn smoke odors, just get in touch with our team. Call us at (508)757-7885.

The Usual Problems 

Figuring out where water can originate goes a long way in prevention water damage to your business. Some possible water sources to check out include:

Appliances

Common sources of water damage include air conditioner units, water heaters, clothes washer, refrigerators, and dishwashers. The age of these devices is a big factor. Over time, for example, appliances which make condensation can rust, increasing chances for a leak. Water supply hoses can develop leaks well. Hundreds of gallons of water can flow, creating significant damage to your building and the property inside. Waterlogged rugs, and desks can become a financial hardship. when this happens, SERVPRO can help you salvage much of the items inside, besides drying out your business and repairing the damage. Off-site cleaning in esporta industrial washing machines can salvage inventory. 

Drains and Pipes 

Your plumbing system can become clogged, leading to appliences that overflow such as sinks, toilets, and your washing machines. Kitchen sinks can have grease buildup, while the accumulation of lint dryers and roots in sewer lines are other reasons for clogs. Pipes can also freeze in the wintertime, burst, and damage your building and the property inside. A 1/8-inch crack can flood your property with up to two hundred fifty gallons of water per day. 

Roofing

Missing, deteriorated, or damaged materials on your roof and ice dams let water enter through your roof and damage walls, ceilings, and floors. Attic ventilation and insulation which is insufficient speeds up the decay of the roof, contributing ice dams forming. exposure to snow, wind, rain, ice and foot traffic also affects the ability of the roof to keep water out.
