Where to go for Restoration Services in Taunton After a Property Emergency

Our team at SERVPRO is here to help the residents and commercial businesses of Taunton overcome property damages by providing expert restoration services. Harm to your property can come from several areas, and it isn't easy to predict and prevent. We offer tailored solutions for unexpected mold, fire, water, and storm incidents that affect your home. Using local technicians here in Taunton, we can significantly reduce call-out times and ensure our company remains "faster to any-size disaster."

Storm Damage Restoration

Storms are the least predictable of all damage-causing events. That unpredictability can make them among the most complex to repair. The impact of storm damage in your Taunton home can extend to water, fire, and even structural repair. Homes can often become unsafe. Particularly in scenarios where contaminated water enters from flash flooding or high winds, and flying debris affects the property's structural integrity. Our emergency, on-call technicians are here to help you navigate these situations safely and successfully.

When dealing with flash flooding, you must use a professional restorer. Contaminated water supplies caused by flash flooding or road overflow can contain any number of harmful pathogens. Avoiding contact at all costs is essential to your safety.  We provide our SERVPRO technicians with personal protective equipment (PPE) that allows them to interact with Biohazardous or infectious waste without putting themselves at risk. Upon entering the property, we can accurately determine a course of action to get your home back to the way you remember it.

In situations where there is evidence of contamination in your Taunton home, our team must set up a containment zone to prevent cross-contamination. We may use physical barriers like plastic sheeting as well as establishing clean rooms to prevent waste from being spread around the home. SERVPRO technicians can inspect materials in your home and assess which ones are salvageable and which ones need replacing. Porous materials must be disposed of to protect the safety of your home, non-porous items and structure can often be disinfected, cleaned, and deodorized.

Water Damage Restoration

Storm-related incidents may be the most unpredictable, but water damage to your Taunton home is among the most common. Clean water emergencies are those that are caused by leaking water pipes or valves. A malfunctioning heating ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) unit may result in condensation and advanced water damage in regions of the house. Alternatively, a structural cavity may allow rainwater into the home, soaking insulation and drywall. These are all examples of clean water emergencies that can, if left unchecked, present more severe issues.

The goal of our water restoration services here in Taunton is to act decisively by mitigating immediate losses. Once we have performed damage limitation, the next step is conducting a thorough drying and cleaning procedure for the existing damages. Mitigation procedure may include rapidly removing large quantities of water, shutting off the source of moisture, or removing furniture from the point of contact. Prolonged exposure to moisture can prove costly to many parts of your home, so acting quickly on your behalf is one of our main priorities.

SERVPRO can begin cleaning and drying the affected area once mitigation of damages is complete. Some materials need cleaning while wet to have the best chance of returning to a preloss condition. Others may need to be dry, or held at the dew point, to prevent permanent harm occurring. We train our SERVPRO technicians to identify which areas of your Taunton home need specific restoration services. They have access to the full range of cleaning products and drying equipment needed to get the job done with as few losses as possible.

Fire Damage Restoration

Fires can be devastating. Even a small, contained kitchen fire can cause the finish on appliances to melt away, releasing toxins and stain walls and ceilings with thick, black soot. When materials combust, they release all kinds of chemicals into the surrounding air in the form of hot smoke. Synthetic materials tend to cause more significant damage, but even natural smoke can cause general soiling. Firefighting procedure can compound the harm caused to your possessions with water or foam setting debris into fabrics and other porous materials.

After phoning the fire department, you should reach out to a professional restoration service immediately to repair the fire damage in your Taunton property. Time is of the essence when it comes to fire restoration, and you can begin mitigating the loss straight away by airing the property or covering expensive furnishings and fabrics. Removing valuables to an unaffected area of the home can be helpful. Be sure to layout covering when you store damaged fire items- these can quickly spread smoke and odor into previously unaffected areas of the home. SERVPRO fire restoration technicians can help to guide you during the cleaning procedure.

Some regions of your fire damaged Taunton home may require specific expertise. Usually, these areas are where the smoke residues are thickest or dealing with multiple items like electronics or fabrics. SERVPRO use pre-testing techniques to understand the type of smoke we are dealing with first to reduce the likelihood of spreading damages around during cleaning. In most cases, a thorough cleaning and drying procedure can effectively tackle malodors. Those that linger after cleaning procedure are complete may need deodorization which SERVPRO provide as part of the restoration service.

Mold Remediation

Microbial growth issues are unhygienic and can even pose health and safety concerns. When cleaning away, microbial fungi, the constant exposure to spores means you may need to wear respiratory protection. SERVPRO mold remediation technicians can not only remove the evidence of mold growth but address the source of the problem in a way that prevents it from coming back. There is no one-hundred-percent solution to microbial growth issues- spores are a natural part of any indoor environment. SERVPRO can prevent mold damage in your Taunton home from becoming a persistent issue.

Cleaning and removing mold colonies requires aggressive methods using scouring pads, controlled demolition of the drywall as well as powerful chemical agents. During the aggressive cleaning procedure, mold spores can become airborne and spread to unaffected areas of the home. SERVPRO address this cross-contamination issue by applying negative air-pressure during removal. We may also need to set up physical containment barriers and establish quarantine areas during the service. These steps can sometimes be inconvenient but are essential to getting a positive result.

After SERVPRO removes mold from your Taunton home, we need to thoroughly clean and disinfect all areas that may contact mold spores. Our restoration services incorporate preventative measures into the mold remediation procedure by using anti-microbial chemicals that secure the property against future harm.

By contacting us today, you can take the initiative in dealing with time-consuming, inconvenient, and stressful property damages. For anything related to storm, mold, fire, or water damage, contact SERVPRO of Taunton / Mansfield at (508) 824-0200.
