They had not been in their Windham house for 24 hours and they already had a carpet cleaning emergency. The young married couple was moving into their new townhouse. It was everything they had hoped for when building it: three bedrooms, master bathroom, granite counters, and a man cave in the basement. It had wood floors one the first floor and high-end carpets in the basement and upstairs bedrooms and hallway. The movers had just arrived with their furniture and were starting to unload into the Windham home. Absentmindedly, the couple put their dog in the basement to be out of the way of the movers. Anxious about his new surroundings and the commotion upstairs, the dog decided to turn the brand new carpets into a personal commode. Hours later when retrieving the dog from the basement, the couple detected a strong odor and started to notice numerous spots on the brand new carpet.
A warehouse crew was wrapping up their shift at a 90,000 square-foot, Manchester facility. The crew chief was making his final rounds when he picked up on a haze moving throughout the building. This was followed by the distinct smell of smoke. Quickly, he picked up his pace towards the back of the building. Before he could find the source of the smoke, the fire alarm sounded. Something was terribly wrong. Shortly after evacuating the building a dumpster fire was discovered outside. The dumpster shoot connected to the warehouse was channeling smoke and soot into the building. Extensive fire damage restoration was needed for this Manchester warehouse.
Optimism was renewed for the sellers of a Nashua home. Their house, which had been on the market for over three months, was finally under agreement.

The anxious sellers hung on every word of the agent as she passed on the news. Most of the outlook was promising except for one issue: Mold was found in the attic. According to the inspector, extensive mold remediation was needed for this Nashua property. The property sellers knew nothing about the mold removal process or where to turn for answers.
