deep cleaning and disinfection

Deep Cleaning and Disinfecti …

Most people expect a property to be safe and sturdy. It’s easy to take a structure’s condition for granted, even when that location is unfamiliar. Unfortunately, storms can shatter those expectations, with strong winds or flooding allowing moisture and mold to wreak havoc in the aftermath. Violent storms have the potential to cause severe damage due to lightning strikes, high winds, and rainwater that seeps into hard-to-see places.

Not that it takes a harsh storm to create an in-house disaster, either. In a more mundane scenario, faulty water pipes can create considerable damage to a property’s interiors at every level. Having water flood your home is bad enough, but the situation can turn dire when a sewage line backs up and bursts. Once this occurs, the problem escalates into a toxic scenario that requires expert handling. Soil-Away has deep cleaning and disinfection methods that can address damaged belongings and interiors.

Basement Water Extraction

If your property has a lower level, then you might know from experience how quickly belongings can become submerged during a flood. Timing is crucial here because the longer water sits, the easier it is for bacteria and toxic residue to permanently mark clothing, stuffed animals, and soft furnishings. Soil-Away can extract water successfully, with no residue left behind. Using high-tech equipment, our team can find even the most hidden of water pockets.

In the wake of a basement flood disaster, we can restore salvageable items to prime condition. Thanks to the highly effective Esporta Wash System, we can restore soft contents to a food-grade safe level. We take sports gear, children’s stuffed animals, and other soft materials from the site of the disaster and store them until clean-up can begin.

No Leftover Debris

We’ll inventory, document, and dispose of unsalvageable items with the debris. During the restoration project, our services can expedite your insurance claim process by providing accurate documentation and photos. This way, any damages and details of our restoration procedures will be there for reference.

One important step is to remove submerged materials. For example, porous building materials, such as drywall and carpeting, should be disposed of as soon as possible to avoid the further spreading of toxins. Once torn-out debris is handled, Soil-Away applies the best deep cleaning and disinfection methods to the remaining areas until the site resembles its pre-damaged state.

Deep Cleaning and Disinfection After Burst Pipes

Bitterly cold winters and high wind chills can cause pipes to freeze and burst. This is one of the most unpredictable and destructive conditions in nature. It causes millions of dollars in commercial damage each year. Hundreds of personal belongings see moisture, mold, and bacteria damage. Deep cleaning and disinfection is the only way to completely salvage any items pulled from the wreckage.

At Soil-Away, we use HEPA vacuums and air scrubs to wash away signs of grime. To be thorough, we also sand, dry-ice blast, and use whatever techniques the situation calls for. Once we dispose of any toxic materials, we dry the areas with large fans and dehumidifiers. With the property in the clear, we can replace any damaged components with fresh materials.

Restoring Your Property and Belongings with Deep Cleaning and Disinfection

Soil-Away Cleaning & Restoration provides full-service emergency restoration to combat damages that occur on your properties. Members of our team are certified by the IICRC. Our trained and dedicated staff will safely and efficiently remove excess water, clean the area, and disinfect your premises to a quality at least equal to its previous condition. Call us now at (603) 641-6555 if your property is at risk.

fire damage restoration

3 Common Causes of Fire Dama …

Fire damage restoration is the only way to completely address a fire and its aftermath. Whenever a property goes up in flames–whether it’s minor or major damage–there will be lingering effects. Water used to put the flames out can combine with smoke, soot, and the contents of your structure. The result is a toxic mix of hazardous damages that make the property dangerous to occupy. 

Unfortunately, the need for fire damage restoration is quite common. Soil-Away’s specialists have seen enough fire cases to know that there are commonalities between every scenario. Call the damage restoration experts at Soil-Away today for a consultation – 603-641-6555.

Fire Damage Restoration for A Space Heater-Related Fire

One of the most common reasons for fires is space heaters. These small but powerful devices easily blend in with other appliances. We forget they are there during the hustle and bustle of everyday life. However, leaving a space heater on can lead to terrible consequences. Firefighters cite space heaters as a major cause for fire damage in homes and offices. Despite the boasts of the manufacturers regarding their safety, leaving them powered up unattended can lead to destructive blazes. One reason this occurs so often is because we overlook them.

In the event of a space heater-related fire, Soil-Away can mitigate any damages and restore your belongings to pre-fire conditions. Following the water needed to extinguish the flames, our truck-mounted extraction units can remove any standing water. In addition, our team uses powerful HEPA air scrubbers, air movers, industrial fans, and dehumidifiers to remove excessive moisture and humidity from the premises. These thorough tactics can help prevent black mold or other biohazards from developing in your surroundings.

Cooking Accidents

As another common reason for fires, cooking accidents can happen within seconds. Before you know it, your kitchen wall might be marked with soot. Heavy smoke will linger behind, contaminating everything, including your foundations and cabinets. A kitchen fire is no joke, often causing extensive damage before being put out. Once this occurs, you’ll need to retain Soil-Away’s restoration services.

Our experts will use special hydrometers and other moisture detectors to find any hidden pockets of moisture within walls or under flooring. Any walls or flooring that are beyond repair will be disposed of. In turn, we can salvage belongings by way of a strict cleaning process, which completely eliminates the fire smell and soot spots. Once everything is processed, all salvaged and restored contents will be brought back onto the premises. This process includes a post-inspection to evaluate the results of our restoration.

Aggressive Storms

A high-level storm can be responsible for creating or spreading fires. Your property, no matter when it was originally built, can suffer from water, lightning, and wind damage. All three can create electrical shorts when walls or foundations are hit with enough force. An aggressive storm spreads fire across a property, which means soot and smoke will overtake every structure in the nearby area. While you can take some precautions to avoid heavy storm damage, it is impossible to protect everything 100%. Storms are obviously chaotic and unpredictable. A freak accident is just that, which means you need a follow-up plan to address the aftermath. 

Fire Damage Restoration with Soil-Away

Soil-Away offers commercial loss restoration, including solutions for damaged appliances, fixtures, carpets, floors, and other surviving contents. The goal is to return your items back to a quality at least equal to or better than pre-loss conditions. At Soil-Away, we also have experts for mold removal, remediation and prevention, HVAC duct cleaning, and other specialized areas. Call us at (603) 641-6555 or visit our website today if you have experienced fire damage.

mold remediation

Mold Remediation to Salvage …

Mold remediation is key to salvaging any soft goods in the aftermath of a flood. When a basement floods, the lifespan of your submerged belongings ticks away, and every second can make the difference between saving those items and tossing them in the garbage. Without the proper response, submerged belongings like stuffed animals, sports equipment, and backpacks will not have a high chance of survival. Professional remediation is the best way to properly clean the toxicity from your prized possessions.

While flooding is generally associated with total destruction, innovations in the field of mold remediation have led to more effective means for salvaging affected items. For example, dehumidifiers have increased the chance of restoration for textiles and soft contents. Basement flooding can be quite disastrous, with low success rates of restoration. However, Soil-Away has perfected soft goods restoration by following the important steps of removal and sanitation. In the event of flooding, the Esporta Wash System can sanitize soft contents from water damage or mold.

Restoring Textiles and Soft Contents

Better restoration of textiles and soft contents depends on factors such as odor, spot and bacteria removal. Soft goods like heavy clothing, camping gear, and regular bedding accessories can be salvaged by using efficient technology, like the Esporta iS4000 Wash System.

With the iS4000, jobs require 35% less water consumption than e traditional laundry methods. The Esporta is not as wasteful, making the restoration more successful. Financial and mental costs can add up whenever sentimental belongings are lost in flooding. The aftermath of such disasters is a prime period for mold to set in, which means you need to make a decision sooner rather than later. Soil-Away uses a fully-integrated closed system, with hardware (the machine), detergents, and software (the recipes) to achieve the cleanest job possible. 

The Esporta can save your child’s teddy bears and blankets. We can remove the majority of mold and mildew, without any lingering odors or spots. We aim to sanitize items to a food-grade safe. 

Mold Remediation for Sports Equipment

In the flooding scenario, sports uniforms and equipment are often vulnerable due to how they’re stored. After all, these items are typically put away seasonally, and basements are an ideal place to put them out of sight. However, a basement flood will expose them to bacterial elements, often penetrating foam and fabric, which makes removal very difficult. While traditional washing applications use components from various vendors (detergents) to remove bacteria on a physical level without scientific or laboratory considerations, our specialists use the Esporta Wash System to make a complete post-flood recovery. 

The chance of success is high that we can sanitize soft contents to a food-grade safety level. This eliminates excessive mold from your hockey pads, sneakers, and baseball gloves. We provide effective cleaning, freshening, and disinfection of the belongings you care about most. When possible, we have a 24-hour turnaround timetable on emergency and sentimental items. On top of saving the items, this speed also leads to faster claim settlements. We work hard to organize what is salvageable and what isn’t.

For example, we inventory, document, and dispose of any items that are too far gone. This removes the task from your list of responsibilities so you can begin rebuilding from a serious situation. Our mold remediation team will meet your timeline head-on. Once you regain your belongings, you can start to rebuild. We offer a thorough investigation and removal of all traces of mold. 

Soil-Away Erases Mold and Bacteria

Your belongings each have their own value, both sentimental and actual. Our goal is to help restore each one so you don’t have to associate them with something as terrible as a flooded basement. This is one mess that Soil-Away’s Esporta-certified operators can help you remedy. We have saved clients millions of dollars in replacement costs and erased the damage from just as many personal belongings. Our storm damage restoration, biohazard remediation, and furniture/carpet cleaning are top-notch services. Call us at (603) 641-6555 or visit our website for more information. 

soot damage

Why Is Soot Damage So Hard t …

You know what soot damage looks like. We have all seen nightly news reports of buildings that caught fire, with towers of smoke and wet interiors. Soot leaves dark physical markings, but it also works as an airborne pollutant due to microscopic particles floating around. In the wake of a fire, soot claims its territory, which means it takes an expert service to remove it.

Debris and soot go hand-in-hand in a figurative sense. You cannot have a clean and safe environment with either around, and leaving both unattended only leads to more damage. Delay just makes the problems worse. Contact Soil-Away when you have difficult-to-remove soot damage. Our leading-edge technology, proven restoration techniques, and industrial-grade cleaning products will guarantee quality results in less time than you might expect.

Soot Versus HEPA Vacuums

Generally speaking, property post-fire needs a lot of attention because the removal takes several layers of work. After all, it’s likely that debris and soot have contaminated both the interior and exterior of the property, which complicates matters. 

In the event of a fire, it is commonplace for the HVAC duct system to be contaminated by airborne pollutants like residual soot, dust, and the beginnings of mold. When the goal is to restore a clean and healthy environment, Soil-Away’s technicians use HEPA vacuums and filtration systems to clean every affected area. For the air duct system, we thoroughly remove those airborne pollutants from the property.

In addition, we clean any salvageable items. This includes regular appliances, fixtures, carpets, flooring, and other surviving contents. During this cleaning process, we can restore each item to pre-loss conditions. We make sure your belongings are up to code and thoroughly sanitized and deodorized.

Smoke and Odors

After the fire is out, the smoke residue and other odors cling to every surface. Soot is difficult to remove because it’s only the beginning of the clean-up. That’s why we thoroughly follow the appropriate cleaning steps to remove all traces. You don’t want lingering odors to irritate you.

Over the years, we developed and perfected our techniques. This is because every scenario is a bit different in scope. For example, a small, confined fire will have a concentrated dose of soot, which makes it more difficult to remove. A large structural blaze will leave behind a pervasive smoky odor that tends to spread into unseen nooks, which means the approach needs to be more investigative. Regardless of the details, Soil-Away is certified and equipped to remediate the noxious odors from materials and contents, large or small.

Our employees are certified by the IICRC. We are NH’s first operator of the Esporta Wash System. Several team members work efficiently and safely to restore your contents. Our goal is to return your belongings and structures back to a quality at least equal to or better than pre-loss conditions.

Side Effects of Soot Damage

Damaged structural and flooring components often must be replaced with fresh materials because soot often comes packaged with side effects, such as moisture pockets that work as a breeding ground for mold and toxic particles. Historically, mold can settle in places where there is plenty of oxygen, excess moisture, and an untreated organic surface. In the wake of a fire, pipes are covered in soot and leak in hidden places. Removal only comes with a thorough sweep of the property. Soot is difficult to remove because contaminants can hide inside walls and go undetected for some time.

Pre-Loss Conditions Despite Soot Damage 

Soil-Away works with insurance carriers, property management companies, major corporations, and homeowners to restore everything to pre-loss conditions. While fires can cause costly losses for commercial property owners, our team can mitigate damages, clean up the disaster, and restore your facility despite soot contamination. We use state-of-the-art technology and methods to help you overcome soot damage.

Defeating Soot Damage with Soil-Away

Any unsalvageable soot-contaminated items will be removed and immediately, inventoried, and properly disposed of. We’ll use a HEPA vacuum to remove unwanted contaminants from the area. We also use HEPA sanding and dry-ice blasting to help remove any signs of mold or soot damage. Once we complete removal and sanitation, we dry the area with large fans and dehumidifiers. Soil-Away Cleaning and Restoration Services is one of the largest independent cleaning and restoration companies in New England. We have experts ready to respond to your needs at any time, day or night. Call us now at (603) 641-6555.

storm damage

Disinfecting in the Wake of …

Storm damage hits so hard because it’s unexpected. Even with weather reports, most people are unprepared to deal with the aftermath of a major storm. Strong winds and flooding can take a secure location down, soaking interiors and foundations, which leads to hidden water pockets. These affected areas can become breeding grounds for toxic mold growth. 

In the wake of a storm, you stand to lose clothing, furniture, and other susceptible items to mold and water damage. At Soil-Away, we offer mold removal, remediation, and prevention services. This includes HVAC duct cleaning, along with furniture and carpet cleaning. 

We are one of the largest independent cleaning and restoration companies in New England. No matter how hard the storm hits, we have ways of disinfecting and saving your belongings and property.

The Right Tools for the Job

Make no mistake: disinfecting property/belongings in the wake of storm damage is never easy. However, it is possible to save more than you might expect. This is accomplished by using the right tools for the job, along with methods that restore items to pre-damage conditions. 

For example, we use HEPA vacuums and HEPA air scrubbers to clean surfaces and the air within the areas that are hit the hardest. We mitigate damages, clean up debris from the disaster, and restore every item possible. Our equipment is tested and proven to be successful in places hit by flooding, fire, and strong winds. 

Stopping Mold Spores from Spreading

By using HEPA sanding and/or dry-ice blasting, our specialists can remove mold spores from interior structures such as wood framing and sheathing. This is followed by a full cleaning to make a space inhabitable once again. After the removal and cleaning, we dry the area with large fans and dehumidifiers.

Likewise, our Esporta Wash System sanitizes soft contents like clothing, bedding, and curtains. A person’s wardrobe may not be easily replaceable, especially if you have children. With the right steps, a high rate of cleanliness is possible. Our employees are certified by the IICRC, and we are the first company in the area that is certified for Esporta Wash System operation.

Once we complete the remediation process, we recommend you have an independent third-party perform a post-remediation verification (PRV) test. This confirms that the predetermined mold spore counts are appropriate before you move back in. After all, unresolved toxicity can affect occupant health in dire ways. Following this workflow and process will ensure optimal results and safety for building occupants. 

Disinfection and Restoration to Pre-Loss Conditions

Following storm damage, our team can efficiently and safely restore your commercial property back to a quality at least equal to or better than its pre-loss condition. Ideally, belongings will be at a food-grade safety level. We will remove and store belongings like sports jerseys, padding, boxing gloves, and other thick materials before cleaning them with our Esporta Wash System.

For your convenience, we work with insurance carriers, property management companies, major corporations, and homeowners. We want to handle your already-traumatic ordeal, so you can return to a normal life. In the wake of a storm, call Soil-Away so we can do the heavy lifting. 

Wake Up from a Storm Damage Nightmare

Our process uses dedication to help you through a tough time. We will inventory, document, and dispose of any unsalvageable items so you don’t have to deal with them. Call our experts now at (603) 641-6555 or visit our website. Your storm damage repair is our specialty.

mold remediation

Submerged: Water Damage, Mol …

As a mold remediation service, Soil-Away deals with hundreds of flooding situations. Bad things happen when a property is submerged in water. This might sound like an obvious statement, but no one realizes how much damage is possible until it happens to them. Sadly, in a flooding scenario, the aftermath can be just as destructive as the event itself. We’ve seen prized belongings, family heirlooms, and essential items like clothing fall prey to mold infestation. Learning the facts is the best way to begin the recovery process.

What Happens to Submerged Properties?

When water floods a basement, this is the beginning of a potential “breeding ground.” Basically, all those nooks and crannies can store shallow pockets of water. Locating these pockets is no easy task. Determining the threat isn’t possible with the naked eye, and the more time passes, the more the mold colonies can thrive. Colonies can spread into items of clothing and furniture. 

Ultimately, when water occupies spaces underneath floors, inside walls, or in the attic, you must use a mold remediation service. Otherwise, you’re risking the health of everyone that occupies the building. In fact, an unattended mold invasion can lead to an eviction. If it becomes excessive, the property could become uninhabitable.

Sample Tests with Mold Remediation

Soil-Away uses air and/or surface sample tests to determine the level of toxicity. In a submerged property case, an Industrial Hygienist (IH) will verify the level of mold contamination and establish a mold spore count baseline for the project. This way, our remediation specialists can proceed in a thorough way.

An IH can use sophisticated moisture-sensing equipment to find hidden pockets and stop mold from spreading. Time is of the essence. Our state-of-the-art equipment gives accurate results to ensure no mold goes unnoticed. After all, an incomplete job only causes more expenses in the long run. Clearly, you want to avoid such scenarios.

Water Damage Solutions 

Non-salvageable items must be completely removed. This includes porous building materials, such as drywall, carpeting, and insulation. Unfortunately, this is the only way to stop further contamination. Our experts will safely dispose of torn-out debris. The goal of this process is to leave remaining fixtures properly cleaned and sanitized. 

In many cases, we can save submerged belongings thanks to advanced cleaning and sanitization techniques. As part of the process, we can dry-ice blast and HEPA vacuum the structure, which removes and captures any remaining mold spores. With the help of large fans and dehumidifiers, we can dry out needed materials before replacing any damaged components. Our Esporta Wash System sanitizes soft contents to a food-grade safety level, thus eliminating excessive mold.  

PRV Tests for Mold Remediation 

Ideally, a post-remediation verification (PRV) test needs to occur before anyone returns to the premises. A PRV test can confirm whether the predetermined mold spore counts have been reduced to the desired level. Soil-Away stops working when everything is safe and clean. In most cases, we can erase signs of water damage and restore your property to pre-flood status. 

Erasing Mold and Water Damages

With Soil-Away, your heirlooms and fabrics have a good chance of surviving. Our Esporta wash system is 90% effective. In addition, we will inventory, document, and dispose of any unsalvageable items properly and safely. Call Soil-Away Cleaning and Restoration now at (603) 641-6555 if you’ve experienced flooding or storm damage.

apartment restoration

What Happens When the Apartm …

Managing an apartment complex takes a lot of work. This is an understatement, to be sure, but managers can take solace in the fact that every problem has a solution. Soil-Away specializes in major and minor apartment restoration projects. We keep things affordable and professional. When the apartments you manage fall victim to irresponsible tenants or even natural forces, we can remedy the situation.

Furnished Apartment Restoration

If you provide furnished apartments for tenants, then soft goods like bedding and furniture are sometimes lost due to various issues. Tenants might neglect to alert property managers whenever the kitchen sink leaks – or they might not even notice until lots of time has passed. Water damage is a common reason furniture and even the structure fall victim to rot or mold. However, with proper cleaning methods, we can stop damage from spreading into other units. We can also salvage the affected interiors.

To do this, we recover items like clothing and furniture, and then apply a cleanser. While items are removed, our truck-mounted pumps clear any standing water from the inside of your property. After all, standing water is a breeding ground for biohazards like black mold and mildew. No doubt you have invested plenty of money into furnishing your properties. Restoring these items is necessary to avoid hundreds of dollars – if not more – in loss.  

Soil-Away team members know removal is a priority, so we won’t waste any time. Our remediation techs will identify any water damage, both on the surface and in hidden pockets. Our moisture-sensing equipment finds moisture forming behind or inside the walls. The same goes for other places where microbial infestations might take hold and flourish, like under flooring and foundations. Ideally, you want to stop damage from accumulating. The health and safety of building occupants could be at risk until we restore everything to pre-flood status.

Destructive Tenants

At Soil-Away, we work with apartment managers and their insurance companies. We have experience helping major corporations and companies in the process of emergency property damage restoration. In many cases, irresponsible tenants are the cause of interior damages. As a property manager, you might find an apartment in bad shape following an eviction or abandonment. While these are not pleasant scenarios to consider, it’s good to have a gameplan when such a thing happens.

Focused Apartment Restoration 

With HVAC duct cleaning, carpet cleaning, and other services, we can take care of most scenarios. For instance, small kitchen fires will leave behind smoky odors. If an apartment shows signs of a fire, chances are you’ll find it difficult to rent out. 

Our experts are certified to remediate any noxious odors clinging to interiors and furniture. Our goal is to erase any signs of damage your tenants have caused; this way you won’t have to worry about complaints (or extra costs down the line). Focused apartment restoration is one reason Soil-Away is the go-to for local managers. 

Apartment Restoration On-Call 

At Soil-Away, our team has perfected innovative removal and prevention tactics for any interior damages. To do this successfully, we use step-by-step tactics. Our employees are professional and thorough. If your apartments are damaged by tenants, mold, or odors, call us at (603) 641-6555 or stop by our site for more information.

commercial loss restoration

Commercial Loss Restoration: …

Commercial loss restoration is a necessity for property owners. Any business or workplace can become the site of an out-of-control fire. There are many origin points for such occurrences, including electrical wiring, space heaters, and on-site accidents. Carpet, furniture, or structural wood will easily go up in flames if exposed, and fire can spread very quickly. As a result, damage can spread to everything that is nearby. 

Such disasters tend to destroy property foundations and interiors, along with personal belongings and furniture. Obviously, this much loss can be traumatic, so it is important to know that there are ways to restore a percentage of what was lost. Heat is the most destructive product of a fire, but smoke and its residue can also cause damage. In addition, contamination is a side effect of fires in the workplace.

Soil-Away works with insurance carriers, property management companies, and major corporations in commercial loss restoration. Our process means we can restore many items damaged by fire to their pre-loss conditions. Our expert team will mitigate damages, clean up the disaster, and then restore your facility to a habitable state.

What’s the Damage? 

First, you must consider the extent of the structural damage, along with any damage to the contents caused directly by fire and smoke. In addition, there could be extra damage created by water jets and materials firefighters used to extinguish the blaze. 

Our expert restoration team will examine actual physical damage and the potential of microbial infestation when identifying water damage in the surviving structure. When it comes to a fire, there’s a high chance of debris and soot contamination, including the HVAC duct system. With Soil-Away, you’ll receive a detailed list of services and photo documentation for insurance purposes.

Disposal of Commercial Losses

We’ll work with you during this part of the process to safely dispose of any debris and unsalvageable contents on the premises. We will evaluate individual pieces of furniture and fixtures. If possible, we will restore and clean them for later retrieval. 

Unsalvageable components, like damaged drywall, are torn out and replaced with fresh materials. Our Esporta operator can save and restore hundreds of items that may have suffered fire and smoke damage. This includes special items like favorite clothing, stuffed animals, and footwear. 

High-Tech Equipment for Commercial Loss Restoration

Water combined with smoke, soot, and the contents of your structure is a bad mix. Dealing with these hazards can damage a property’s indoor air quality. Thankfully, Soil-Away Restoration is fully equipped to deal with all the above. 

Our truck-mounted extraction units can remove any standing water. In addition, our team uses powerful HEPA air scrubbers, air movers, industrial fans, and dehumidifiers to remove all moisture and humidity. This step helps prevent black mold or other biohazards from taking hold. Commercial loss restoration includes appliances, fixtures, carpets, floors, and other surviving contents.

Post-Restoration Processing 

Soil-Away Restoration Services will perform a final inspection of your property to ensure all water and fire damage has been addressed. We use special hydrometers and other moisture detectors to find any hidden pockets of moisture within walls or under flooring, where micro-organisms might hide for a long period of time. 

In the end, we will bring all salvaged and restored contents back onto the premises. This process includes a walk-through to review the results of our restoration to ensure your satisfaction. We provide comercial loss restoration that is as complete as possible. 

Certified Cleaning for Commercial Loss Restoration 

Our employees are certified by the IICRC, so you know we will do the job well. These are Esporta Wash System certified operators who work efficiently to restore your commercial property. The goal is to return your items back to a quality at least equal or better to pre-loss conditions.

mold remediation

Evicting Water and Mold From …

Here is a scenario you might recognize: you go out of state to visit family. When you return, you discover that a sewer pipe has burst in your basement, causing knee-high levels of water to invade each room. Since you were gone for a few days, the water has been sitting long enough to cause a lot of damage. Not a pleasant surprise, to be sure. After all, mold remediation can be a complicated process, and there’s the possibility that many of your belongings will be in poor condition, with little chance of saving. All your heirlooms, best clothing, and soft goods will be goners once mold takes hold.

Plan to Survive

Thankfully, a well-planned mold remediation service can give you an advantage, even if time has passed. With the right approach, a service can restore valuable and cherished items to pre-flood status. Mold remnants can be kicked out like a bad tenant.

For example, a Certified Industrial Hygienist can use sophisticated moisture-sensing equipment to find potential “breeding grounds” where mold colonies can thrive. If it’s hidden in places like underneath floors, inside walls, or in the attic for extended periods, then your problems will only continue.

Before Remediation

As stated, you need a game plan – one that saves many of your belongings and the property itself. After all, a bad mold invasion can end up evicting you from a place if it becomes uninhabitable.

Before remediation can occur, you need to schedule an air and/or surface sample test. An Industrial Hygienist (IH) will verify the level of black mold toxins before beginning remediation. As a result, the remediation company will establish a mold spore count baseline for the project, which gives the remediation company an idea for how to proceed.

Put a Stop to Further Mold Damage with Mold Remediation

Mold will continue to grow on your property if you don’t eradicate it. To do this, a service will need to remove porous building materials, such as drywall and carpeting, to stop further contamination. Any torn-out debris is safely disposed of so that remaining areas can be properly cleaned and sanitized.

At Soil-Away, we typically use HEPA vacuums and HEPA air scrubbers to remove and capture microscopic mold spores. However, we will also sand, dry-ice blast, or will use other methods to remove and capture remaining mold spores. Next, we dry the areas with large fans and dehumidifiers before replacing any of the damaged components with fresh materials. Our Esporta Wash System can sanitize soft contents to a food-grade safe level, thus eliminating the mold issue.

This means that any heirlooms and fabrics have a good chance of surviving, because the Esporta is 90% effective. We will inventory, document, and dispose of any unsalvageable items. Thankfully, past experiences show that our clients tend to keep more than they lose.

Evict Water and Mold from Your Space with Mold Remediation

Once the remediation process is complete, a post-remediation verification (PRV) test is needed before anyone occupies the premises. The goal of the test is to confirm whether the predetermined mold spore counts have been eradicated. Soil-Away aims high, with a thoroughness that is mandatory.

Let us effectively banish mold from your flooded home or office. We also provide storm damage restoration, biohazard remediation, and furniture and carpet cleaning. Call Soil-Away Cleaning and Restoration now at (603) 641-6555. We have a mold remediation plan that is just right for your scenario, no matter how dire it seems. 

fire damage

Fire Damage and How to Retur …

Fire damage adds yet another layer to a terrible experience. Following the trauma of such an event, you will have to face the aftermath of flames and the damage it causes to your property. This can be a complicated process if you’ve never encountered a property damage situation before. 

Thankfully, there is a process to erase the damage from your property. First, you must assess the damage, sort your belongings, and then begin to clean up the mess so you can return to normalcy. Soil-Away can help.

What is the Fire Damage?

You’ll need to assess structural and contents damage caused directly by the fire. Smoke can cause as much damage as the flames themselves. Any water and materials used to extinguish the fire leaves a mark as well.

For the air duct system, we thoroughly remove airborne pollutants such as residual soot, dust, and potential mold spores. Our expert restoration team can examine actual physical damage and the potential of microbial infestation in the surviving structure.

To start with, an Industrial Hygienist (IH) will conduct a property evaluation to detect issues such as asbestos, lead paint and/or mold. This process may include air and/or surface sample tests. The goal is to confirm the level of toxins before beginning remediation. This will help determine the size and scope of the restoration process and ensure proper safety protocols are established prior to the project commencement. 

What Survives from Fire Damage?

We’ll work with you during this part of the process to safely inventory, document and dispose of any debris and unsalvageable contents on the premises. We tear out damaged drywall, flooring, and other components for later replacement.

Certified Esporta operators save and restore tens of thousands of fire- and smoke-damaged items a year. Soft goods like heavy clothing, camping gear, and regular bedding accessories are a priority, and often more can be saved than expected.

However, any unsalvageable items are inventoried, documented, and disposed of with the debris. Our clients benefit from 24-hour turnarounds on emergency and sentimental items, leading to quicker claim settlements. Contact us and begin rebuilding to normalcy.

From Fire Damage Clean-up to Normalcy 

Traditional washing applications cannot fully restore belongings and property in the wake of a blaze. This is why operators use the Esporta iS4000 Wash System, a state-of-the-art tool to even the odds. This technology boasts 35% less water consumption than traditional laundry jobs. 

This results in better restoration of textiles and soft contents, restoring 85% of the contents that traditionally would have been unsalvageable. If not dealt with quickly and appropriately with the right equipment and techniques, water – combined with smoke, soot, and the contents of your structure – can result in hazardous effects to the indoor air quality. This can hurt building occupants—pets, children, and others.

During a clean-up, it is important to clean and sanitize the remaining areas once torn-out debris is taken away for disposal. Debris and soot will contaminate any property marked by flames. In order to restore a clean and healthy environment, operators can use HEPA vacuums and air filtration systems to clean all affected areas. We thoroughly sanitize and deodorize everything. Once we finish the cleaning, we will take photos for the insurance company so you don’t have to. This saves you time and creates a speedier claims process.

storm damage restoration

Storm Damage Restoration in …

Storm damage restoration can be an intimidating process. Whenever the locals of New Hampshire are hit with Mother Nature’s worst, there’s always a mix of interior and exterior damages to handle. Depending on the extent of the storm, losses can range from minimal to severe. We can handle both in a logical way that saves your belongings and property.

For example, dehumidifiers alone have led to better restoration of textiles, thanks to new methods and upgrades to equipment. Soft contents like plushies and clothing have survived harsh storms due to expert removal and sanitation tools like the Esporta Wash System, a device that sanitizes soft contents from water damage or mold brought on by flooding. While places and belongings changed by nature can seem like a lost cause, there is hope.

Soil-Away’s Esporta Wash System is just one of the ways our certified operators have saved clients tens of millions of dollars in settlement costs. For clothing and other soft goods, we use a fully-integrated closed system, with hardware (the machine), detergents, and software (the recipes) to achieve the deepest clean possible. With our step-by-step process, storm damage restoration can return your goods to their pre-storm conditions.

Storm Damage Restoration

Storm damage brings a variety of results. Each situation requires its own specialized action plan, so an assessment can provide a clear way to proceed. After assessing the damages, our restoration team will use a targeted approach to restore your property to its previous state.

For example, our team has experience in basement water extraction. Flash flooding is a terrible surprise, but our expertise allows us to act quickly before any secondary damages or biohazards take hold.

Our restoration teams work in extreme conditions in a variety of structures: single- and multi-family housing, commercial property, and more. Whenever this is the case, you’ll have less to worry about. We’ll inventory, document, and dispose of any unsalvageable items.

Possibilities of Restoration

At Soil-Away, we don’t like to give up easily. No matter how badly damaged your belongings might seem, we have ways of returning them to their original state. Soft goods like heavy clothing, camping gear, and regular bedding accessories are salvageable thanks to our cleaning methods.

As part of the recovery process, our truck-mounted pumps will remove the water from your basement, along with any other standing pools inside your property. Standing water is a cesspool of biohazards like black mold and mildew, so removal is a priority.

Our restoration/remediation techs will search for any toxic molds. We use moisture-sensing equipment to eliminate any hidden moisture pockets forming in the walls, under flooring, or other places where microbial infestations might take hold and flourish. Eliminating excessive and/or hidden moisture is key to stopping further damage and preserving the occupants’ health.

deep cleaning and disinfecting

Deep Cleaning and Disinfecti …

Deep cleaning and disinfection are a big part of picking up the pieces in the aftermath of a disaster. Whether it’s from flooding, fire, or an unseen mold invasion, loss restoration is a step-by-step process to save your properties and belongings.

It’s not easy to prepare for destructive nature. What is important is how you proceed once the damage has run its course or been discovered. After all, extreme natural conditions can lead to financial losses on commercial properties and can impact their ability to do business. Each cause of damage has its own hallmarks that will force a decision:

  • Storm Damage: Violent storms passing through the region have the potential for causing severe damage from lightning strikes, high winds that knock down structures, and rainwater that seeps into every crack.
  • Freezing Temperatures: Bitterly cold winters and below-freezing wind chills cause pipes to freeze and burst. This is one of the most unpredictable and destructive conditions in nature and causes millions of dollars in commercial damage each year.
  • Flash Flooding: An invasion of excessive rainwater requires specialized handling. Not only will it create mold and damage structure foundations, but it can also bring toxic materials to your door, including oil, chemicals, and debris.

At Soil-Away, our team will properly mitigate damages, clean up the disaster, and restore your facility. Deep cleaning and disinfection aren’t easy, but we know how to do them in a cost-saving way so you can reach your goal.

Deep Cleaning and Disinfection: Removal

One touchpoint is the removal of affected materials. For example, porous building materials, such as drywall and carpeting, should be disposed of ASAP. Once torn-out debris is taken care of, the remaining areas must be deep-cleaned and sanitized.

We use cutting-edge tools to accomplish deep cleaning and disinfection, including HEPA vacuums and air scrubs. For the sake of being thorough, we also sand, dry-ice blast, and use other expert techniques to give you maximum cleanliness. Excessive mold spores are never a good thing, so it’s important to completely clean the area to avoid further long-lasting damage.

Once toxic materials have been disposed of and the areas are cleaned, we dry the areas with large fans and dehumidifiers. With the property in the clear, we can begin replacing any damaged components with fresh materials.

Deep Cleaning and Disinfection: Salvaging Belongings

Following the removal of ruined materials, we will identify any salvageable items. With the effectiveness of the Esporta Wash System, we restore soft contents and textiles to a food-grade safe level. We’ll store and then properly clean belongings like sports gear and other thick materials. If you act quickly, there’s a chance that you won’t lose too much in the way of belongings.

We’ll inventory, document, and dispose of any unsalvageable items. During the restoration project, our services can expedite your insurance claim process by providing accurate documentation and photos. This way, any damages and details of our restoration procedures will be there for reference.

mold remediation

4 Keys to Safe, Effective Mo …

Mold remediation is vital to the process of restoring a flooded property back to its original condition. Perhaps you’ve had friends who have experienced a mold invasion or you’ve seen it first-hand. This kind of damage can be difficult to rectify without a good gameplan.

Realistically, you might not understand how fast untreated mold can damage your property and cause potential health issues for any inhabitants. Mold moves quickly, invading hard-to-see crevices. It can slip under the surface of flooring materials or behind drywall to continue its growth. Basically, mold may continue to affect your property unless you enlist a mold remediation service.

commercial loss restoration

Commercial Loss Restoration: …

Commercial property damage restoration is the solution to returning your commercial business back into a stable condition. Since your property is likely to have public visitors or employees, you need a safe environment. Unfortunately, damages brought on by flooding, fires, and mold can make a place near-uninhabitable. Winding back the clock, or restoring your property and items, needs to happen sooner than later.

Mold remediation is one way to help restore affected areas. Commercial loss restoration is an innovative moisture-sensing process that helps to find potential “breeding grounds” for mold colonies. These can thrive in hidden places for extended periods. Basically, this means your commercial property is under attack in every area: beneath floors, inside walls, or stowed away in storage areas. Wherever there is excessive moisture or untreated organic surfaces, there’s a high risk of mold that needs attention.

Costly damages brought on by devastation can only lead to stress in your already-busy life, so we will help ease your situation with loss solutions. We can inspect your property and provide a detailed estimate. Commercial loss restoration is effective, even under the worst of circumstances, with a proven high percentage of success.

To help combat commercial losses due to nature and accidents, Soil-Away can provide you the best remediation tactics to ensure a rewind. We have a strong track record of successful restorations, regardless of object type or property layout.

To do so, we use regulation-approved techniques and equipment. For example, heavy-duty pumps can clear all standing water from the flooded premises, which allows us to thoroughly check water-damaged areas. Excessive rain or violent storms might have a major impact, but you do have a chance of controlling the aftermath with commercial loss restoration.

Soil-Away can help restore your property to its pre-damage quality. This isn’t time travel, but we can rewind the damage that has turned your life upside down. Once the commercial loss restoration process is finished, you won’t know the difference between pre-loss and post.

Restoration to Rewind the Damage

Once a structure fire has damaged your business, there’s nothing to do but initiate a clean-up. Commercial loss restoration removes any lingering soot residue or smoke odors from the premises. Soil-Away is certified and equipped to eliminate the noxious odors from materials and contents that suffered from burns or smoke.

soft goods restoration

How Soil-Away Saves Property …

Soft goods restoration in the aftermath of a flood is no easy task. Without the proper care and tools, trying to save submerged stuffed animals and backpacks rarely has a satisfactory conclusion.

However, modern times have led to more effective means of doing so. The Esporta Wash System has led to more success when it comes to the restoration of textiles and soft contents. While the old success rates were low (or nonexistent), Soil-Away has perfected soft goods restoration over the years thanks to advancements in technique.

Technological Advantages

There are important steps to follow once removal and sanitation is complete. In the event of flooding, the Esporta Wash System can sanitize soft contents from water damage or mold.

The Esporta iS4000 Wash System boasts 35% less water consumption than traditional laundry jobs. This results in better restoration of textiles and soft contents, restoring 85% of the contents that traditionally would have been ruined.

What does this mean? Soft goods like heavy clothing, camping gear, and regular bedding accessories are salvageable, which avoids the need to replace everything. This helps you avoid financial and mental costs – the latter being a common experience whenever sentimental belongings are lost.

Soil-Away can help you restore your child’s belongings despite the flood. The Esporta Wash System can save beloved teddy bears and blankets. For sports-playing families, we can ensure your gear is free of excessive bacteria with no lingering odors. Using bacterial swabs before and after the Esporta process will squash any misgivings you might have.

Our services can provide effective cleaning, freshening, and disinfection of the belongings you care about most. Our clients benefit from 24-hour turnarounds on emergency and sentimental items, leading to quicker claim settlements. Contact us and begin to rebuild to normalcy.  

Soft Goods Restoration Means Less Stress

After a flood, you face many stressful decisions. Dealing with lost belongings on top of environmental damage can turn into a costly and lengthy process. To avoid unnecessary issues, you want a fully-integrated closed system, with hardware (the machines), detergents, and software (the methods) to achieve the cleanest job possible. Whenever this is the case, you’ll have less to worry about.

While traditional washing applications must use components from various vendors, such as detergents, and are limited to a physical assessment of stains and odors without scientific or laboratory considerations, the Esporta Wash System is on another level. It can sanitize soft contents to a food-grade safe level, which eliminates mold issues.

At Soil-Away, we inventory, document, and dispose of any unsalvageable items so you don’t have to worry about them. Along with soft goods restoration, we also provide storm damage restoration, biohazard remediation, and furniture/carpet cleaning. We pride ourselves as a community-oriented business – one that’s ready to work for you. Let us remove the stressful bacteria, biowaste, and clingy mildew from your comforters, linens, and leathers.
