Water Damage Extraction – Bedford, NH

Water – when we think of water, we usually think of its soothing qualities; a relaxing bath; dimming the lights, putting on soft music, stepping into a fragrant tub and just letting your body soak in a warm soft blanket of clean water. Many times we picnic near a stream of running water or near a lake; staring into the tranquil blue; or we go for a walk near the ocean, taking in the salty air. Those are some of the upsides of water. What about the destructive nature of water? Like the scenario of a flooded property; one that needs emergency water damage extraction. We must take the good with the bad.

Mold after Flooding – New Boston, NH 03070

As the deep freeze of winter sets in, it is important to keep in mind the dangers of not only water damage but also mold after flooding. It can be easy to write this off as something that happens more in the spring but property damage from water in the winter can be extremely high depending on harshness of weather patterns. Large storms, such as Nor’easters, can dump several feet of snow in New Boston and the surrounding New Hampshire communities. Power outages, ice dams and frozen pipes result in millions of dollars in property damage every year. Many people are unaware of these facts and thus don’t prepare for flooding in the winter. Add mold to the equation, and it is very easy to feel overwhelmed by the situation. This is why it is important to have a plan and a service in mind to call to take care of the problem.

Cleanup After a Flood - Portsmouth, NH 03801

Cleanup After a Flood – Portsmouth, NH 03801

Spring thaw: a term that is no stranger to New Hampshire (NH) residents, but what exactly does it mean? How will it impact your Portsmouth, NH home or business? When should you prepare? According to Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), spring thaw typically occurs during the early spring months, when increasing temperatures give way to melting snow and ice. Since the ground is still frozen during this time, the melting snow cannot be absorbed into the ground; therefore, runoff from bodies of water (lakes, streams, ponds, etc.) can cause quick flooding and costly damage to structures. Is your home or business prepared for the annual NH spring thaw? If not, you may need to prepare to cleanup after a flood.
