Water Has Damaged My Home, Who Can Help?
Technicians in East Falmouth are finishing up a water damage house. SERVPRO does it again.
Call SERVPRO to Perform Water Removal in Your Falmouth Home
Whether it is a faulty water heater or a burst water pipe, it takes only a short time for water to damage the structure and contents of a Falmouth area home. Once you notice a water emergency, it is essential to act immediately to hire professionals who can restore your home to its preloss condition, whenever possible.
How do restoration experts extract water in a property?
It is crucial to note that it takes only a few inches of water or even a large spill to cause significant damage to valuable items. Since we understand how devastating water damage can turn out, our team of highly trained water restoration experts can perform water removal in your Falmouth residence promptly to avoid further damage. Our technicians have decades of experience and access to state-of-the-art equipment and tools that help us handle any magnitude of water damage. We use cutting-edge techniques that protect homes against mold, microbes, and odors. You can trust SERVPRO technicians to extract water, clean, and deodorize your residence effectively.
Can I remove water from my residence before the restoration experts arrive?
You can begin the water removal process depending on the amount of water present in your residence. A large puddle from a leak? Sure, try a mop and bucket. If the water levels are high, wait for us for extraction, you may exacerbate the situation. If the weather is conducive, open the windows to allow air circulation and remove the affected furniture outside. Remove items in the flooded area to safeguard them from damage. More extensive damage can occur to furnishings and building materials the longer water remains on them. Failing to remove the water fast can also encourage mold growth.
If the water levels are too high for your water removal equipment to handle, it is crucial to wait for the SERVPRO team to arrive. It takes a short time for clean water to turn to gray water, and then black water, which can cause unhealthy conditions for the residents. We have a wide range of advanced extraction equipment and tools that can handle any amount of water.
Can restoration experts help me file my insurance claim?
Many home insurance policies provide coverage for water damage if the cause is accidental and sudden. The Insurance Information Institute reports that homeowners insurance can help pay for repairs for reasons such as:
• If drywall gets drenched after a water heater raptures
• A pipe bursts upstairs and water saturates the ceiling underneath
Depending on what is destroyed, two kinds of coverage within a homeowner’s insurance policy can apply:
• Dwelling coverage – It helps pay for damage to the structure of a house if a covered peril damages it. Therefore if a pipe bursts suddenly and ruins a wall, dwelling coverage can pay for repairs.
• Personal property coverage – It helps pay for damage to your possessions if a covered risk ruins them.
Before beginning the water extraction process, you need to contact your insurance company to determine how much coverage is available. Our team can work with your insurance adjuster to make it easier for you to claim for compensation. The cause of damage and its extent may determine your coverage.
Our technicians have years of experience in dealing with local adjusters and insurance companies. Our technicians can document your loss by taking photos before we work on the affected area, during the mitigation process, and after completing the job.
As part of our water damage cleanup procedure, our team of experts can also include the drying logs and sketches. We work hard to make sure our customers enjoy a hassle-free experience from the moment you call us to the minute we complete the restoration process.
Which water restoration equipment and tools do professionals use?
Some tools we can use to handle water damage include
• Water extraction units
• Air moving equipment
• Inspection devices
• Deodorizing equipment
Water extraction is the primary process that SERVPRO technicians use to speed up the drying process and to minimize further damage in your property. We can use stationary tools that extract water from the carpet and pad. Since the tool needs weight to work effectively, one of our restoration technicians can stand on the device to help it extract as much water as possible. After using the stationary tool, our technician can use a carpet wand to remove residue water on the surface of the carpet. The machine is useful for extracting the excess water, leaving moisture only.
If the moisture left on the surface is not extracted on time, it can lead to mold growth. We can use axial air movers to speed up the evaporation process.
Water damage comes along with unpleasant odors, which can persist if not mitigated on time. Our team can use different equipment to eliminate bad odor from your property, including:
• Air scrubbers
• Hydroxyl generators
• Ventilating box fans
• Thermal foggers
• Scented beads
When dealing with water damage, you can rely on SERVPRO of Upper Cape Cod and The Islands for reliable water removal services that can restore your residence to its preloss condition. “Like it never even happened.” Talk to us today at (508) 888-5985.
How Do I Know if My Carpet Pads and Floors are Wet Under the Carpet in Falmouth?
Water can quickly ruin carpet. Fortunately, SERVPRO has the know how to dry and make it, "Like it never even happened."
Our Skilled SERVPRO Technicians Working in Falmouth Restore Your Carpet
Excessive water leaking onto your carpet requires quick attention. It is not always as simple as letting the carpet dry on its own, even if the water is clean. Effectively extracting water may be more difficult in a humid climate like that of Cape Cod.
Technicians use Moisture Sensors to Detect Excess Water
Water Removal in your Falmouth home first requires that you detect and then possibly measure moisture levels. SERVPRO technicians use moisture sensors with long sharp probes to penetrate through carpet and padding, reaching to the floor underneath to determine the presence of water. Then, they may use moisture meters to determine the amount of moisture present.
How Do Technicians Remove the Water?
- Water extraction is key. The more passes made with portable extraction equipment, the better as it expedites the drying process.
- Self-propelled extraction moves throughout the impacted areas as a technician stands on them, using their weight as they ride around the carpet, vacuuming up as much water as possible.
- Restoration professionals may also use stationary extraction equipment that uses the technician's weight as it removes water in one location. The technician then moves it to another section after 10-15 seconds.
Why Do SERVPRO Technicians Use Air Movers and Dehumidifiers?
- Air movement, ventilation, and dehumidification are all critical in effectively drying the carpet to prohibit mold colonies from forming.
- Air movers move warm, dry air over the impacted carpet while dehumidifiers pull moisture from the air.
Removing soaked carpet may be tempting; however, our professionals have the tools and techniques to dry and restore your carpet adequately. For 24/7 assistance, contact SERVPRO of Upper Cape Cod and The Islands at (508) 888-5985. We make it, "Like it never even happened."

What is the Best Way to Cleanup Smoke and Fire Damage in a Nantucket Garage?
The technicians arrive quickly and bring your property to its pre-fire loss condition.
SERVPRO has been helping Nantucket homeowners for decades with fire loss restoration
Garage fires can get out of control quickly, particularly when flammable substances get stored incorrectly. However, the number one cause of most fires in this area of the home happens due to the overloading of electrical outlets and malfunctions. Because of the lack of monitoring in many garages, the fire tends to burn longer and have more opportunity to spread. It is vital to bring in a professional mitigation company to ensure that soot and smoke residues get eradicated.
Can Fire Damage Spread to From the Garage to Other Areas of the Home?
When this attached garage in Nantucket had fire damage, SERVPRO techs found extensive charring and smoke damage on the walls and ceiling. Containment through the use of heavy plastic over doorways leading to the home is a beneficial method to halt the spread of soot and odors to the rest of the house.
Cleanup and Controlled Demo
Charred items that have no potential for restoration through cleaning get removed for disposal. Technicians needed to remove the plywood and sheetrock around the area of the fire epicenter, exposing the framework. Specific cleaning agents get used for removing the remaining smoke residues to ready the garage for repairs.
Odor Control is a Must
The techs have a diverse selection of scent neutralizing applications depending on the level of odor control needed.
Finding Reconstruction Services After Restoration Efforts Complete
With their general construction license #CS-108357, SERVPRO techs make it easy to go from restoration to rebuilding as soon as the cleanup completes. This enables life to get back to normal even faster.
When you need help with a garage with fire damage, contact SERVPRO of Upper Cape Cod and The Islands at (508) 888-5985. The technicians arrive quickly and bring your property to its pre-fire loss condition.

Fire Damage Clean Up In Falmouth
We have experienced technicians and advanced equipment to make losses “Like it never even happened.”
How Do I Clean Up Fire Damages in a Falmouth School Building?
Our SERVPRO team has efficient fire cleaning practices for your Falmouth school to get students and faculty back into the building as soon as possible.
Fires in a Falmouth school force immediate actions from faculty and administration to ensure the safety and wellbeing of students and teachers. Because fires can originate from many different sources, each of these situations is unique for firefighters, and even the restoration teams dispatched to help clean up the mess. Removing fire damages involves multiple approaches and advanced technology that often far exceeds the inventory of your custodial team.
Why Should I Choose Professional Fire Restoration?
• Fast Response
• Qualified Technicians
• Advanced Equipment and Technologies
When fire losses or any disaster occurs in a public school, it is vital to get professionals moving quickly to help. There is always a demanding timeline with public institutions because so many Falmouth residents can get directly affected by school closures or limitations. This need makes the fast response of SERVPRO professionals a vital resource in combating present fire loss effects in the school and preventing them from spreading farther than they already have.
One of the ways that our team stands out from traditional cleaning teams like your custodians maintaining the grounds is our extensive training and experience in fire recovery. The Fire and Smoke Restoration Technicians (FSRT) and Odor Control Technicians (OCT) of our roster have gotten accredited through the standard-setting Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) firm. These endorsements can show our knowledge and experience before we even begin work on the school.
There are many ways that traditional wipe cleaning and conventional cleansers can cause more damage to the facility after a fire. With situations like soot residues, wipe cleaning can smear the affected surface and cause staining. All aspects of cleaning after a fire loss emergency involve varying levels of our advanced equipment and technology with the focus on protecting as much of the exposed materials and contents as possible.
How Does Content Management Work After a Fire?
• On-Site Cleaning
• Pack-Out Process
In your public-school system, the resources and supply of books are finite and precious. Protecting these contents involves a wide array of actions and possible approaches, beginning with on-site cleaning. The most cost-effective solution for your Falmouth school is restoring items and equipment on-site rather than relocating it or moving it to our nearby warehouse. With the use of potent cleaning products and practices, we can evaluate the effectiveness of on-site cleaning to determine how we can help without higher costs or more significant time expenses.
There are many instances when relocation can solve many of the pressing concerns for contents in fire-damaged areas of your school. Moving books, furniture, and soft fabrics to unaffected portions of the building can reduce the severity of odor and residue damage to these items.
Pack-out processes involve relocating damaged belongings and items to our SERVPRO facility. Content management professionals oversee more deliberate cleaning approaches, from immersion cleaning for soot removal or our ozone chamber for the deodorization of multiple contents simultaneously. Recovered and restored items can get stored safely in our climate-controlled warehouse until full cleaning of the school has finished.
How Can You Clean Up Fire Loss Effects?
• Ash and Debris
Cleaning up after a fire, even one that stays localized to a specific area of your Falmouth school can be a challenge without the right equipment and products. Soot is one of the most significant obstacles after a fire because it requires specific methods for cleaning, all while presenting potential hazards for those exposed. With approaches like soda blasting, our technicians can remove soot from painted concrete masonry units (CMU) used for the walls of individual rooms.
Likewise, residues that are not caused by soot can also be a hurdle for responding fire restoration technicians. Our SERVPRO professionals must determine the appropriate cleaning product, typically related to the type of soil affecting the material surface. Oil-based residues require specific chemical agents to trap and clean.
Fire debris might be minimal in your school setting, primarily because CMUs are natural deterrents for spreading fire, and the inclusion of fire-retardant insulation at the tops of these wall systems can reduce the movement of fire effects from one room to the next. Where debris does exist, it is beneficial to remove it quickly to reduce the severity of related conditions like odors and circulating soot or ash.
Will the Building Air Out or is Deodorization Required?
• Ventilation and Airflow
• Open Area Deodorization
• Trapped Odors
A common misconception about fire losses is that specific effects go away on their own, but this is not usually the case. For odors, the immediate harshness of these conditions can lessen with ventilation and moving air through your Falmouth school, but it does not always address the full measure of the concerns. Materials like drop ceiling tile can absorb smoke odors and amplify this scent long after the disaster when warmer conditions cause pores in the material to expand.
Among the most immediate odor concerns for the facility circulate in the environment where the fire took place. With air quality being a focus as well for our SERVPRO team, we can utilize dual-purpose machines for these open area needs the school. Hydroxyl generators can not only produce UV cleansing with the production of hydroxyl radicals that neutralize odors, but the machine also features onboard HEPA filtration.
Between flooring and ceiling tiles, odors can become trapped and might even appear to be gone. An assuring step that our professionals can take to ensure that fire odors get sufficiently neutralized is utilizing our thermal fogging equipment. The gaseous deodorization compound created by this machine can penetrate porous materials to eliminate trapped odors in surfaces and contents.
There is a demanding timeline to get the school back to full functionality after fire emergencies occur, and our SERVPRO of Upper Cape Cod and The Islands professionals can help. We have experienced technicians and advanced equipment to make losses “Like it never even happened.” Give us a call today at (508) 888-5985.

When Washing Machines Bring Water Damage to Falmouth
Washing machines cause many homeowners to experience water damage each year. Inspect your hoses often and look for signs of water damage.
Water Damage Falmouth – Washing Machine Malfunction
Washing machines and dryers reside in many homes. It is not uncommon for homeowners to begin a load of laundry and then run out to complete errands, drive the kids to activities, or even go to work. Virtually all manufacturers caution buyers never to leave laundry machines unattended, yet many people do every day. Occasionally the results can be disastrous, causing significant flooding in their home from an overflowing washing machine or laundry tub.
SERVPRO provides water damage mitigation and reconstruction services in Falmouth and surrounding areas. We respond in less than four hours from your call and are available on a 24 / 7 basis. We have over 35 years of experience in the industry and also provides full repair and reconstruction services in conjunction with water, fire, mold, and storm mitigation services. Our contractor's license is General: CS-108357.
Laundry Room Floods
Water inlet hoses can leak; outlet hoses can fall out of the receptacle, or the laundry tub or the tub drain can become clogged, preventing water from draining. The result is a great deal of water on the floor that quickly spreads to adjacent rooms, soaking flooring and weeping into the drywall of your walls.
SERVPRO utilizes a variety of equipment in situations like these. We use shop vacs to remove water on hard surface floors and weighted extractors to remove water from carpeting and underpadding. We utilize moisture meters to check for moisture inside walls and hard to reach areas. Our technicians may need to remove baseboards and drill access holes in the walls to check for moisture as well as blow dry air into cavities to absorb moisture.
We deploy air movers and dehumidifiers throughout the area of your home, impacted by water damage to absorb moisture and lower the humidity levels to dry your home. We may ask homeowners to turn on the AC system to manage the humidity levels further. Our team of subcontractors can also assist with repairs and reconstruction to save time and reduce the total cost of water damage mitigation in your home.

We Put The Flames Of Worry Out In Falmouth After A Fire
We have state of the art equipment, expertise and experience to restore your home right away to prevent further damage.
The Smoke Smell is Driving Me Crazy!
Home fires are more commonplace than one would imagine. Among the traditional culprits, you find cooking mishaps, flammable liquids, candles, and smoking. However, many homeowners fail to realize that the use of portable heaters can also increase the risk of fire damage in your home. We usually operate under the assumption that our space heater is just a small appliance designed with safety in mind, unknowingly exposing our home and family to a potential catastrophe. Even when the ensuing fire is a small one, the effects of the flames can be long-lasting and a constant reminder of our vulnerability.
If your home in Falmouth falls victim to fire damage, your top priority should be to enlist the help of a professional service of our technicians at SERVPRO. The accident in your home can leave a wide array of consequences, including smoke and soot, as well as soaking wet items as the result of the extinguishing agents and sprinkler system. Luckily, our team is ready to apply the latest techniques to restore your home and make the fire a thing of the past. Our business acumen prepares us to tailor our solutions to your needs, regardless of the scope of the fire damage.
Very often, our SERVPRO team hears our clients complaining about the smell the fire left behind. Most people are unaware that the path of the fire, as well as the chemical composition of what burned, dictates the characteristics of its remnants. The variability in fire damage is a crucial consideration when we determine which techniques to apply in your home. For example, as we deodorize your house, we may choose to remove particles in the air by scrubbing it with filtering equipment capable of capturing small particles. Alternatively, we may choose to use a thermal fogger that deploys molecules to interact with the smell particles and counteract their strength.
SERVPRO of Upper Cape Cod and The Islands keeps up with the latest in restoration practices, so you don’t have to. When you call us at (508) 888-5985 after a fire, you access a team of experts working in your best interest.

The Speed of the Water Removal Makes the Difference in Falmouth Homes
We can get your property back to the state it was in before the unfortunate incident.
You Need SERVPRO’s Experts For Quick and Thorough Water Removal and Remediation
When water damage occurs, the timer starts ticking on the degrading of the water and the loss occurring to the carpet, walls, and contents of the home. Airborne mold spores can germinate as quickly as 24 hours, and after 48 hours, the water can have bacteria that make it unsafe to handle without personal protective equipment.
SERVPRO technicians know that the more thoroughly and faster they perform the water removal in Falmouth properties, the more loss they can help the property owner avoid.
Types of Water Extraction Equipment
The equipment makes the difference in how rapidly the water removal phase of restoration goes. SERVPRO techs have access to an extensive array of equipment designed for use on specific surfaces. Centrifugal pumps have the pulling power to extract deeply embedded moisture, and the addition of a weight extractor head makes it ideal for use on wet carpet and padding. Thus, saving homeowners from the stress of having to replace their carpet as a water loss. They also have the equipment to work on flooring made of tile, wood, and other substrates for the best results.
Controlled Demolition Actions are Necessary
When water wicks into sheetrock, there is a limited time for removal and drying before permanent damage results. Once the interior core of the building materials gets wet, often, that is the point of no return, and it requires removal. SERVPRO techs halt the water loss through the use of actions such as flood cuts. This controlled demolition cleanly removes damaged sheetrock and leaves as much of the wall intact as possible.
Going from Restoration to Reconstruction
A significant stress factor after a water loss in a home after the restoration is the repairs and rebuilding necessary to return a home to its preloss condition. When a property requires any type of repairs, the certified technicians have a general contractor license #CS-108357 and can perform anything needed to undo the results of the water loss.
Contact the certified techs at SERVPRO of Upper Cape Cod and The Islands at (508) 888-5985 when you need rapid water removal in your home. Their advanced equipment and restoration methods make the loss, "Like it never even happened."
