Hiring the best air duct cleaner for your specific needs can be a daunting task. We understand this and that is why the team at Soil-Away tries to make the process easy on you. One relevant example can be seen with a new client of ours from Auburn, New Hampshire (NH). The young, married couple just bought their first home. They were renting an apartment in Manchester for several years while they saved to buy a house in Auburn. The couple was obsessed with maintaining a clean home. Indoor air quality was very important to them. Before settling into the house, they agreed to hire a professional air duct cleaner.
Many Hudson, New Hampshire (NH) residents rely on wood pellet stoves as a secondary source of heat for their homes. They create a nice ambiance and also provide warmth for functional rooms of the home. Unfortunately, as is prone with many mechanical devices, there is always chance for malfunctioning. This was the case for one of our recent clients who we performed smoke damage removal services for. The pellet stove for these Hudson residents malfunctioned. The pellets in the automatic feeder caught on fire. The smoke from the fire filled the house. A severe burnt smell consumed the entire structure. We were called in by their insurance company to perform the smoke damage removal services.
Heavy snowfall this winter will result in a watery mess this spring. A commonly accepted model is that 10 inches of snow equates to 1 inch of water content. Many areas of southern New Hampshire and northern Massachusetts have had 70 to 100+ inches of snow this season. It will melt eventually. The pressing question is how quickly will it melt? A “fast melt” could be devastating as both public and private drainage systems and infrastructures are not designed to sustain such an influx of water. Flooding and water damage to properties is a real concern.
Over 60 inches of snowfall during late January and early February had the city of Manchester, New Hampshire (NH) in a bind. Snow piles rose higher and higher. Schools and business struggled to remain open. The harsh winter conditions were wreaking havoc on the entire southern NH region. Worst of all was the rampant occurrences of property damage insurance claims. The leading cause of claims was due to ice dam water damage. Hundreds of claims had been submitted by Manchester residents because of water damage from ice dams on roofs.
