Mold growth in bathrooms and wetrooms can be a common problem for landlords. Mold can make a property unsanitary for tenants while also causing physical damage to drywall and other organic matter.

A commercial mold removal service in Bristol could help you restore your property and prepare it for prospective tenants.

Using a commercial mold remediator is an efficient way to tackle mold problems as their qualifications and knowledge allow them to select the right cleaning approaches for specific materials. SERVPRO can help by:

Clearing Water from Flooded Bristol Basements

flooded basement Floodwaters in your basement can be very dangerous. Call SERVPRO for fast and immediate storm damage repairs.

With multiple extraction tools, we can mitigate flood loss in Bristol residences. 

After floodwater enters a home, there is a finite timeline to mitigate before irreparable damage occurs. As trusted flood restoration professionals, we have a fast response when every minute counts.

Fast Extraction Solutions for Natural Flooding

In finished or unfinished spaces alike, flood damage to Bristol basements requires immediate extraction assistance. Our skilled SERVPRO professionals cannot identify the extent of the damage and the presence of secondary effects like mold without first removing pooled water. Because this lower level of the property sits under the grade of the ground outside, when penetration points exist, it could result in several inches or feet of standing water.

Clearing Surface Water Threats from Concrete Floors

As one of the low-porosity materials commonly used for flooring in unfinished basements, water can pool along the surface without considerable concerns about endangering saturation. This concrete material encountered in flooded Bristol properties makes for faster extraction and water removal, even when the size and magnitude of the flood damage do not constitute larger removal units like truck-mounted extractors. Some of the tools for the remaining surface water include:

  • Squeegee wands
  • Mops
  • Towels
  • Evaporative drying tools

Flooding is an unexpected and destructive force against area homes and businesses. Our SERVPRO of Bristol storm response team can help clean up the mess and return you to the property as soon as possible. Give us a call today at (860) 582-3330.

How Our Crew Restores Your Burlington Home To Pre-Fire Damage Condition

"Here to help" SERVPRO understands how important it is to get your home back in order after a fire. Call us at (860) 582-3330, right away.

Advanced Mitigation Methods For Properties With Fire Damage

Property is not just bricks or mortar but a collection of memories and possessions; often, put together over several years or even decades. That is why fire damage can be so upsetting for homeowners. Not only is there the stress of making sure everyone is safe but also the prospect of discarding the things that made it a home, not just a house. We are a leading restoration provider that works with a restore-over-replace mentality that can get your home back to preloss condition, “Like it never even happened.”

Our duty in helping homeowners overcome fire damage in Burlington is to bridge the gap between firefighting services and getting your home back to its best. As restoration technicians, we enter the property, check for safety hazards, remove charred materials or debris, deodorize, and clean. In significant fires, we can prepare a job site for third-party contractors to enter safely while also carrying out crucial mitigation tasks.

Water & Fire Damage Restorations

A conventional method of firefighting procedure is to douse flames with water. Unfortunately, porous surfaces can absorb that moisture and set residual smokes or soots into the fabric. SERVPRO responds quickly to these issues by drying the affected area properly and applying foam cleaning methods to prevent soiling to upholstery or furniture from becoming permanent.

Mitigation against water or soiling is time-sensitive, so it is essential to use professional services to restore your property from smoke or soot damages. Possessions are often salvageable with the proper care. SERVPRO can use immersion cleaning for dense materials. Immersion cleaning methods help restore valuable metals by using ultrasonic technology. Equally, Esporta washing machines can remove up to 90% of soft contents.

SERVPRO can take personal items, including artworks, photos, ornaments, or fabrics, to an external cleaning facility. Your technician can create an inventory of items and damages sustained to be passed on to your insurance adjuster or third party to guarantee you only deal with one company throughout service. Get your home back after property damages; contact SERVPRO of Bristol at (860) 582-3330 today.

Water Damage Can Be Insidious In Onset In Your Bristol Home

Unexpected Water Damage Problems in Bristol Solved by SERVPRO

Water troubles can be brewing in your Bristol house unnoticed. Small leaks under a sink, behind a wall, or around the sides of a poorly caulked tub eventually become more significant issues. When a homeowner realizes that water has soaked into fixtures and structural components, considerable harm can need attention. Our Institute of Inspection, Cleaning, and Restoration Certification (IICRC) trained technicians are ready to address any water damage in your home fast.

When we arrive at your water damaged Bristol residence, our experienced crew assesses the damages. Because pipes and drains hide within building cavities behind walls and under floors, we employ sensitive moisture measuring and thermal imaging devices to map out the perimeters of the saturated building materials. We want to stop the migration of water to even more unaffected spaces and dry out the wet areas.

Water Removal Services

If we discover pooled water under cabinets or between walls, pumps, and extractors from our fully-stocked SERVPRO service vehicles, remove it. We disassemble kickboards beneath fixtures and consider controlled demolition of the lower sections of walls to access the water. Systematic reuse of detection devices ensures we make progress and avoid missing damaged areas.

Water can make its way through layers of hardwood and even ceramic tile if the grout is missing or cracked. SERVPRO uses negative air pressure equipment to suction water from several levels of flooring. We attach floor mats to the surface, connect hoses to the mats, and pull the water out with extractors for power.

Once standing water exits your home, SERVPRO focuses on techniques mastered by team members certified by the IICRC for Applied Structural Drying (ASD). Creating a restorative drying environment requires leveraging the scientific principle that wet moves to dry. We position air movers and heaters to reduce your home’s interior humidity, facilitating the movement of absorbed moisture out of porous building materials into the drier air. Our commercial-grade dehumidifiers then absorb or condense the water vapor created for permanent removal.

SERVPRO of Bristol is ready for your water damage needs, invested in the training and the equipment for the job. Call us at  (860) 582-3330 when you suspect unseen water damage.

Our SERVPRO Team in Bristol Handles Smoke and Fire Damaged Properties

Eliminating smoke and fire residues can be a highly technical process that requires years of experience, purpose-made tools, and careful monitoring of environmental conditions. This article looks at some of SERVPRO’s best equipment for the job.

Perhaps the most important equipment we use when handling fire and smoke damage in Bristol is our personal protective equipment (PPE). Hand and eye protection are a must throughout most stages of the restoration process, with some steps even requiring industrial respirators. SERVPRO technicians know how to stay safe on the job, so always take their advice.

Removing smoke particles can be difficult work. One tool that we use to eliminate them is the air scrubber. This machine draws in copious volumes of air, captures smoke particles in a HEPA filter, and uses adsorption techniques to remove tiny particles that can get through the filter. These devices may be used alongside Vaportek systems, which use advanced membranes and oils to eliminate and neutralize odor molecules in the air. SERVPRO technicians may use these devices for:

  • House Fire Clean Up
  • Smoke Damage from Tobacco
  • Smoke remediation in the attic

SERVPRO of Bristol provides fast and affordable fire and smoke damage remediation services. Call us at (860) 582-3330.

Extraction and Drying Equipment for a Flooded Bristol Basement

Basements are a common element in many homes, but they are also a frequent location for flood damage. While you might not have the expertise or equipment to manage effects from a disaster like this, extraction and drying are vital components to begin the process of returning your property to preloss condition. Our professionals can arrive quickly with the full measure of our industry-leading equipment designed to make restoration more efficient by protecting your property and reducing damage. 

We have IICRC-certified restoration specialists that can arrive quickly to begin flood removal efforts in your Bristol home. Our SERVPRO technicians have extensive training and education to obtain their certifications for water restoration, disaster relief, and mitigation tactics. We encourage each member of our experienced team to pursue educational opportunities to further their knowledge in the industry and provide customers with exemplary service that exceeds their expectations. 

For the high-caliber employees that we dispatch to your home, we equip them with high-powered tools and machines to make mitigation and restoration phases of recovery faster and more cost-effective. With a flooded basement, many residents often have to face several inches of standing water. Our SERVPRO team arrives with several levels of extraction equipment, from our portable electric sump pumps and wet-vacs to high-volume extraction equipment like our trash pumps and extractor truck mounts. 

The objective is to remove all excess water as promptly as possible to understand the severity of the damage facing the rest of the basement and begin water damage mitigation. With moisture detection equipment, we can find the ideal location to set up air movers and dehumidification units. Together, these two machines can work to force moisture into the air and collect that vapor into a tray for removal from the premises. Drying concrete is a slow and exacting process to ensure that drying goals are met.

Overcoming the obstacles of a flooded basement is nothing that a homeowner should face on their own. With our advanced equipment and experienced professionals, you can count on SERVPRO of Bristol to make this damage “Like it never even happened.” Give us a call today at (860) 582-3330.

How SERVPRO Will Restore Your Bristol Home After Water Damage

SERVPRO - Water Cleanup Procedures For Bristol Residents

With its location in the middle of our state, Bristol enjoys the benefits of being near the coast without having to suffer through the storms. Despite its ideal location, that does not mean residents do not deal with water intrusions from broken pipes and other plumbing failures. 

When dealing with an inside water problem like a broken, shut-off water heater valve, water cleanup in a Bristol home can be more straightforward. SERVPRO response teams do not have to deal with soil and other contaminants in water that enters through a flood. 

That does not eliminate cleanup, though. Depending on which appliance failed, there can still be rust, food scraps, or even human waste if the problem was a backed-up toilet or failing septic tank. When that happens, the water is contaminated or ‘black’ and a health threat. To eliminate the problem, our personnel use shampoos and other cleaners containing antibacterial and anti-microbial chemicals. 

If the water damage was not from one of these two sources, then it is considered ‘clean.’ This water makes up most of our service calls for residential water intrusions. After quickly removing any standing water, SERVPRO technicians use shampoo machines and mild cleaning agents to clean any carpets that absorbed the water. The cleaner eliminates the threat of active mold and helps lift out anything trapped in the carpet. 

After cleaning, team members roll up the carpet to remove the pad underneath. Pads disintegrate quickly after absorbing any liquid, so water cleanup and replacement are much more cost-effective than attempting to dry them. Most insurance companies also support this option. 

With the pad removed, technicians unroll the carpet for drying. They lift it at opposite sides and use an exhaust fan to draw out moisture and damp air at one end while installing an air mover to replace it with warm, dry air. By carefully adjusting the temperature and speed of the airflow, they can quickly finish without causing delamination or separation of the carpet layers. 

At SERVPRO of Bristol, we understand that proper cleanup involves much more than renting a shampoo machine and spending your weekend walking on butcher paper after you finish. Every home deserves a professional response to any water intrusion, no matter the size or its origin. Call us at (860) 582-3330 today to get started restoring your home. We are here for you.
