When Your Granby Chain Restaurant Needs Professional Restoration Following a Kitchen Fire
A fire in your restaurant can leave behind severe damage and smoke odor leaving you in need of professional fire damage restoration services.
SERVPRO Works Quickly to Restore Your Business after Fire Damage
Your Granby franchise restaurant might not have slowed down much since you first opened your doors, but that does not discredit the possibility that even a minor disaster could derail this successful run for a short time. As much food as is cooked in the kitchens of your establishment, you ask a lot of the focus of your employees and the continued performance of the ranges and ovens that prepare the food for hungry customers in the dining area.
Even a small kitchen fire in your eatery can have widespread effects for both the employees you have hired and the customers that come to your restaurant. Fighting any of these fire damages in your Granby franchise can prove challenging on your own, not to mention incredibly time-consuming compared to the efficiency of professional restoration.
Our SERVPRO team can quickly identify the full extent of the damage that your restaurant faces and addresses these concerns in order of importance based on what keeps your establishment closed to the public and what concerns are most pressing to you the owner. In even small kitchen blazes, lingering smoke damage and a noxious odor can prove nauseating and unnerving to patrons, so this is a step that must get completed in the fire damage restoration process.
To deodorize the building, our SERVPRO professionals utilize thermal fogging. This process breaks apart smoke odor molecules and neutralizes them on contact. The chemical solution that comprises the fog is odorless, so no scent is left behind from the deodorization efforts.
Your restaurant is never going to get prepared for the possibility of a kitchen fire that requires professional restoration. Fortunately, our helpful SERVPRO of Hampshire County technicians can walk you through the entire process and work to ensure that your doors do not stay closed a moment longer than they need to. We can appreciate your need to serve your community, as we share this same obligation to you. You can reach our emergency response team 24/7 by calling (413) 324-1300.

Protecting Homes from the Effects of Stormy Weather with Water Removal Services in Westhampton
Don't Sleep on a Park Bench After a Storm in Westhampton, Call SERVPRO for Water Removal
Rapid Water Extraction Mitigates Storm Damaged Homes
Storms can bring tremendous amounts of water into Westhampton rather quickly, and at times cause minor flooding in lower areas. When this water ends up inside a home, it can create problems for the homeowner. Rainwater can end up in a house other ways, too.
Residences that sustain heavy rainfall might need water removal services. Besides flooding in Westhampton, rain can end up inside a home from roof leaks. During winter, ice dams can create loose shingles where water can come into the attic area. Strong winds can create gaps in siding which can also create problems during spring storms.
SERVPRO's IICRC-certified employees can bring this problem to a halt quickly. We not only remove the offending water, moisture, and humidity invading your home, but we also repair the places, for minor and fast closures, which permitted it to enter, keeping water from future storms entirely outside. When the structural damage is significant, then an outside contractor must rebuild the damaged house components.
In the unfortunate event that a tree lands on your home and makes holes in the roof, we can provide emergency services to remove the tree and then tarp the area, so damage remains minimal. Yard debris also causes problems, so we understand when customers desire that we eliminate this type of mess.
Removing the water from inside your home occurs with appropriate equipment and tools. When water evaporates into the air, SERVPRO can remove it with the equipment that finds it in the air. Absorbent materials also hold onto water, so we increase the environment's temperature and help it re-enter the air again, making it easier to extract. For huge messes like floods and caved-in roofs, we use larger equipment such as our truck-mounted pumps. No matter the size or kind of job, we have industry-leading equipment designed to solve the situation.
SERVPRO of Hampshire County technicians come from the families of Amherst, Ware, Belchertown, and others in our surrounding areas. We want to help those in our communities recover from storms, floods, and other water-related disasters with water removal services. Call us at (413) 324-1300 when your family home or business sustains such damage. We can help make it "Like it never even happened" for you in a fast and efficient way.

What You Should Do When Your Easthampton Pizzeria Has a Small Fire
Don't let fire damage in your pizzeria close your doors for long. Contact SERVPRO for effective fire damage remediation services.
SERVPRO Arrives Quickly to Remediate Your Business Fire
Even a blaze of small magnitude can cause fire damage on your property. The nature of making and serving food at your establishment makes it slightly easier to have a fire break out. Food preparation takes place at all points of operation which means that a stove or pizza oven is running more often than it is not during open hours. Fortunately, should a fire have occurred, professional help is nearby to handle the cleanup and damage restoration.
An electrical shortage due to faulty wiring can cause a blaze to outbreak in your pizzeria and leave behind commercial fire damage in Easthampton. The fire can scorch the walls, floors, and countertops of your kitchen while also damaging the appliances. That kind of mess is merely too big to try and clean up yourself, but our IICRC-certified technicians can handle the trouble while allowing you to keep your doors open.
SERVPRO understands how essential it is to keep your doors open for business. Our technicians can work on cleaning up the soot that had adhered itself to the structures in your kitchen when it is best for you. We can operate during hours that your pizzeria is closed to the public. We can stay out of sight and out of mind while remediating your property.
SERVPRO knows that sight and smell are both essential tools to be used in a kitchen while preparing food. We can use advanced tools to dislodge the soot and neutralize the smells in your kitchen. When cleaning scorch marks, we can apply a variety of methods depending on the affected material, including chemical cleaners. We can use thermal foggers to remove stray odors, which penetrate the odorous particles and eliminates them. SERVPRO strives to return your business to its preloss state, including the way it smelled.
When a fire breaks out on your property, do not wait. Call SERVPRO of Hampshire County at (413) 324-1300. Day or night, we can rush to your property and begin the remediation process when it best suits you.

Water Removal Projects in Ware
If your home has two inches or more of water, SERVPRO uses submersible pumps to quickly and efficiently extract the water.
Rely on SERVPRO for Water Removal Services after Water Floods Your Home
Any time a pipe breaks, water possibly leaks into your Ware home. The presence of water can cause many things inside the house to get ruined. Unwanted moisture is also a way mold forms inside a building.
Any time water unexpectedly floods your home, extraction and drying within 48 hours becomes a necessity. SERVPRO's water removal technicians in Ware have all of the necessary extraction and drying equipment that helps prevent mold growth. After a water problem, if moisture levels do not get returned to preloss conditions within 48 hours mold likely develops.
The first step in mitigating any problem with moisture is to fix the issue at its source. If the initial problem was a pipe break, then water gets shut off so that it stops flowing into the structure. We then call in a plumber to fix the pipe break so that water does not leak once it gets turned back on.
After we keep water from flowing into your home where it is not wanted, we begin the extraction phase. During extraction, we attempt to pull out as much water out of your house as we possibly can. If there are more than two inches of standing water inside the building, then we use a submersible pump to suck up the water. To vacuum water out of upholstery and carpet, we use a heavy-duty extractor equipped with specialized tools made for getting the moisture out of fabrics.
Once the extraction process is complete, we begin the structural drying step. To dry the structure, our SERVPRO restoration team first uses monitoring equipment to test affected areas to determine how wet an area is. We always get readings of the area that was affected and areas of the home that were unaffected and compare the two numbers. The difference gives us an estimate of what equipment and how much time is needed to properly dry out the structure.
The dry-out process does not get completed until all moisture levels have returned to preloss conditions. Throughout the drying procedures, we use different types of moisture meters to test levels in various materials. To make sure your home gets dried out correctly after water issues call SERVPRO of Hampshire County at (413) 324-1300 for help 24/7.

Mold Damage Cleanup and Safety in Your Easthhampton Home
If there is a leak under your sink, it is likely mold will begin to grow in 24-48 hours.
Call SERVPRO at Any Sign of Mold Damage in Your Home
Finding a leak under your kitchen sink in Easthampton is terrible enough, but when you also find that mold has been growing, you want to take action. Mold thrives in these moist, dark environments, and only needs a bit of time – about 24 to 48 hours – to begin growing. Once it starts, it just keeps going, spreading even to other areas of your kitchen if left long enough.
Mold growth and mold damage in your Easthampton home of any amount should be taken care of right away. It does not go away on its own and can eventually cause health effects for you and your family. Cleaning it on your own is not recommended, as regular household cleaners are not enough. That is why our staff at SERVPRO are ready to help you at any time. As experienced and trained mold remediation specialists, we can handle your mold problem, so it does not come back.
Our first step in remediation is to determine how severe the problem is. We inspect the area and talk to you, so you understand what is going on at all times. We may ask you if you have had previous problems with mold or noticed any strong, musty odors anywhere else. We need to know when you think the water damage first occurred as well.
SERVPRO workers are careful to protect themselves while working with mold by wearing PPE, or personal protective equipment. For a small area such as under your sink, an N95 or higher filter type respirator can be used. For more extensive areas, a half-mask respirator and cartridges are used. Chemical resistant gloves are always used, and we also wear eye protection.
We can quickly create a barrier around the mold damaged area when a small growth of mold is found. The main reason for doing so is to keep the mold contained in the area where we are working. We do not want it spreading to clean sections of your home while we are stirring up the mold spores during the cleaning process.
SERVPRO of Hampshire County works carefully and thoroughly to get rid of a mold infestation in your home in Ludlow, Ware, or Westhampton. You can be sure that when you contact us at (413) 324-1300, you are getting help from a knowledgeable and experienced company.

Fire Damage from Your Clothes Dryer Can Affect Your Entire Belchertown Residence
It is important to remove lint from the dryer vent after each use to prevent a fire from starting.
Rely on SERVPRO to Restore Your Home after Fire Damage
Pulling fresh, just-dried towels out of the dryer can fill the area with a fresh, pleasant scent. During the winter in Belchertown, this chore can become one of the nicer ones just because of the warmth felt. However, just like the aroma can spread, lint from damp towels can accumulate and cause heat to build up to dangerous levels inside your ducts.
After pulling each load from your dryer in Belchertown, the simple but mundane task of removing the lint in the trap can help prevent fire damage. When homeowners neglect this task, lint can eventually pass through and into the duct. Still damp, it often sticks to the interior of the duct, slowly building up. Continued use of your dryer and sporadic removal of lint from the trap can lead to a fire starting inside your ductwork.
Dryer fires can also affect the clothing inside the dryer in cases where heat cannot escape into the duct and out the exterior vent. Synthetic fibers produce noxious gases when they combust. When the basement holds the washer and dryer, fire can affect the floor of the ground level story in your home. Finished basements, of course, sustain a great deal more property damage than unfinished basements might experience. The materials used to complete a basement often help to spread the fire, which can weaken even more considerable areas of the ceiling above, and thus, the flooring above.
Because many homes do not contain functioning smoke detectors in the basement, or if they do, testing does not happen on a monthly schedule, a fire in this location can become quite large, even with the occupants at home. Just as home maintenance that takes place on a regular schedule helps prevent a great deal of damages caused by a multitude of disasters, acting early can help keep existing fire damage from worsening.
SERVPRO technicians hold IICRC certificates, including Fire and Smoke Restoration (FSRT). We continually maintain and check our tools and equipment to ensure they remain in working order. When a fire takes out your home's electric supply or only causes damage to the area we need to work in, we can supply our own to power our equipment.
After removing all charred and burned items from your basement, smoke odors can still permeate your entire home. This is because soot particles, as they disintegrate, become airborne and can enter your heating and cooling system, and then spread throughout your home. Our Odor Control Technician (OCT) can help you address this predicament and make your home smell normal again.
SERVPRO of Hampshire County wants to help homeowners in our area, from Northampton to Ware, recover from fire damage. Ensuring your family lives in a safe home, free of the carcinogenic properties inherent in soot particles is very important to us. Call us 24/7, 365 days a year, at (413) 324-1300, so we can help make your home "Like it never even happened." again.

Hidden Mold Damage in Your Granby Home
Mold growth can be overwhelming. Contact SERVPRO at the first sight of mold for an investigation and remediation efforts.
SERVPRO Locates the Source of the Mold Infestation Before Remediating the Damage
Sometimes, you can have mold growing in your Granby home and not even realize it. One way in which this can happen is if you have a slow pipe leak. Pipes are usually out of eyesight and buried under flooring or behind walls. If one of them starts leaking slowly, you probably won’t even realize it for a while, and in the meantime, mold also has a chance to grow.
If you have discovered mold and mold damage in your Granby home from a hidden leak, the faster you get it taken care of, the better. Your home continues to sustain more damage the longer the mold and moisture are present, so get in touch with our technicians at SERVPRO when you see a problem. We have the training and the tools to take care of the problem for you quickly.
Upon arrival to your home, we do a careful inspection of your property for visible signs of mold. It feeds on water and cellulose and can be hidden from plain sight, so we use various technologies to find hidden water sources and mold.
SERVPRO techs also use various containment procedures to stop the mold from spreading. We might use containment methods that are advanced such as negative air chambers, so the area which is contaminated is isolated with barriers, plus negative air pressure to stop the spores from spreading to clean areas of your home. All cooling and heating systems or fans are turned off to stop the spread of the infestation.
Specialized air filtration equipment is also used to catch microscopic spores from the air. We use HEPA vacuums and air scrubbers to stop the spread of mold as well during the remediation process.
Our process of remediation depends on how much mold growth there is and what kinds of surfaces the mold is on. We use antimicrobial and antifungal treatments to get rid of the colonies of mold and to stop new ones from forming. Removing and getting rid of porous materials that are mold-infested, such as carpeting and drywall, can be necessary when massive mold growth is present.
Restoration may also involve minor repairs like painting, replacing drywall, or installing new carpet. Major repairs include the construction of various rooms or areas in your home.
No matter how small or large your mold issue is, SERVPRO of Hampshire County ensures they are thorough in cleaning up your home in Belchertown, Ware, or Hadley. Get in touch with us as at (413) 324-1300 as soon as you see a problem so we can help.

Restoring Your Home and Your Life after Flood Damage Happens to Your Ware Residence
Contact SERVPRO as soon as possible to minimize the effects of flood damage in your home.
SERVPRO Works Hard to Restore Your Home Back to Safe Conditions for Your Family after Flood Damage
Nature often comes to mind as a beautiful, peaceful force that people in the Ware community travel out of their everyday environment to experience. Nature sometimes makes house calls and a substantial amount of costly damage might take place instead of a calm and relaxing interaction.
Ware residences in low-lying areas can sustain flood damage at any time of the year, but Spring can mean a much higher chance of this happening than other seasons. Increased rain and melting snow can mean the ground becomes too saturated to hold additional water, and this all too often results in flooding of our local homes and businesses.
Just like a quick response before flooding occurs can save many of your more valuable possessions, a timely reaction after a flood can also decrease you and your family's overall frustration. This includes lower restoration costs, a reduction of possible health risks, fewer damages to personal belongings, and also a shortening of the amount of time your home remains unlivable. Responding slowly can only bring increased damages and more significant loss of property, among other consequences.
The water in a flood does not only look dirty, but it also carries pathogens and chemicals that can cause health effects. Elimination of these microbes and chemicals through proper handling of your home's interior can adequately decrease exposure to these elements and protect your family. However, we must address many other aspects of flood damage in your home before we can consider it completely restored "Like it never even happened."
Structurally, your home must provide adequate shelter that poses no risks to the occupants. Homes where water remained for lengthy periods often sustain severe damage to walls, floors, wiring, and electrical features, and many other situations that all need competent workers to restore safe conditions.
Odor also plays a role in disasters affecting homes, even when the culprit is clean, and not dirty, water. Our Odor Control Technician (OCT) can help you resolve this specific problem, also, so your home smells fresh and clean when the restoration work ends. Removing the damaged materials eliminates a considerable portion of the odor-causing microbes and other particles, but when an odor lingers, we can assure you that we can go that extra step for you and your family.
Helping the communities of Granby, Ludlow, and Hadley, SERVPRO of Hampshire County takes flood damage very seriously. We want individuals and families in the surrounding areas to live in safe, clean, dry homes. Call us at (413) 324-1300, at any time, day or night, any day of the year, whenever flooding affects your home.

How Do Professionals Take Care of Odor Problems After Commercial Fire Damage to Your Amherst Store?
Customers definitely don't want to purchase clothing items that smell bad or burnt. Contact SERVPRO should your store have a fire incident.
Team SERVPRO Quickly Arrives to Tackle Damage at Your Store
One of the most significant problems after a fire incident to your store is the odor. Whether you own a garment store, a restaurant, a grocery store or any other business, if your establishment smells like smoke, it drives the customers away. Even after the cosmetic and structural restoration after fire damage, it is crucial for your business that your store does not smell of smoke and soot.
Thankfully, SERVPRO technicians can use some of the best equipment to have your store smelling like usual in no time after commercial fire damage in Amherst. We employ different methods to eliminate even the most potent odors after a fire incident. Deodorization is a multistep process involving the following steps.
Removal of the odor source
The best way to deal with the odor problems after a fire is to eliminate the source of the odor itself. SERVPRO Professionals can remove any charred material from the building in an attempt to eliminate the source of the odor. The burnt debris can continue to give off odors if they are not disposed of promptly.
The next step in the odor elimination process is to clean the surfaces with odor-causing residue on their surface. Cleaning is especially challenging in case of protein residue and wet smoke residue. Various cleaning techniques need to be employed to eliminate these residues in an attempt to remove the residue.
Recreation of the conditions that cause odor penetration
One of the reasons for deeper penetration of odor after a fire is the fact that the smoke can carry the odor causing particles deep into the pores of surfaces. To neutralize those odors, professionals use thermal foggers that create a vapor of a deodorant. This process takes the deodorant particles to the same place as the odor causing particles. The deeper, hidden odor-causing particles can lead to foul odor in your establishment driving customers out. So, it is necessary to use foggers to combat these.
Sealing the surfaces
If the odor removal is too expensive or impractical, the odor causing particles can be sealed by painting over them. Inaccessible ducts can also be often sealed to eliminate the odor after a fire incidence in your establishment.
Call SERVPRO of Hampshire County at (413) 324-1300 today to consult with our odor elimination experts.

How do Professionals Mitigate Mold Damage in Your Amherst Home?
SERVPRO has a four step process to properly rid your home of mold damage and help prevent future damage.
SERVPRO’s Mold Remediation Process to Rid Your Home of Mold Damage
Mold damage is one of the worst things to happen to any home. Not only can it spread quickly, but it can also cause health effects. The best chance to control mold damage is to start the mitigation process as soon as possible. Restoration experts can help you get the damage under control and prevent any further damage as well.
Professional restoration experts use a multi-step process to clean the mold damage from your Amherst property. SERVPRO experts have all the necessary equipment to get the job done safely and efficiently. Here are the steps involved in professional mold remediation that you should know.
One of the essential steps in the whole process, containment refers to physically preventing the spores of the mold from spreading to unaffected areas. Our technicians use plastic sheeting to create a physical barrier and prevent the mold from spreading to uncontaminated areas during the cleanup. We can also use a negative air pressure to avoid the airborne spores from spreading to other areas of your home. Our technicians can also seal HVAC vents and establish ‘clean rooms' during the mitigation process to prevent the spread.
Once the damage has been contained, the next step is to remove the mold itself. The methods of removal depend on the type of the material involved. While porous material needs to be thrown out, the non-porous material can be cleaned by HEPA vacuuming and then clean with a detergent solution. The semi-porous material can be cleaned by sanding, wire brushing or damp wiping. SERVPRO professionals can use a combination of these methods depending on the nature of the surface involved in the damage.
The next important step in the mold remediation process is the cleanup. The settled spores and dust can be cleaned by vacuuming the surfaces with a HEPA vacuum. The cleanup is usually done in multiple rounds as the spores in the air take time to settle down. SERVPRO technicians can allow several hours between two rounds of HEPA vacuuming to get rid of most of the settled spores.
The last and perhaps the most critical step to prevent further contamination is drying. Mold loves wet and damp spaces. Professionals can help you to remove the residual moisture and try to prevent the mold from coming back.
