Odors in your Seekonk, MA office can come from a number of sources, inside and out! Here at SERVPRO of the Attleboros, we've smelled it all, and can handle it all!

Sometimes the source of the odors can be one too many people heating up fish in the office microwave, or chemicals, or even air ducts and mold.

The first step we'll take is to identify the odors in your office building. Once they are identified, we will not mask the odors, we will remove them once and for all!

We have the training and equipment to identify and eliminate offensive odors. By determining the conditions and cause of the odor, we will determine which products and technology needs to be used to remove the odor completely!

What happens after water damage in your Attleboro home

9/8/2020 (Permalink)

After a water loss, one of the main challenges that needs to be addressed is, of course, the water! Standing water can also lead to musty smells and mold growth…both of which nobody wants in their Attleboro business.

We are in the midst of Atlantic hurricane season, and while it’s been quite warm, we have seen a few bad, rainy days and with the fall season approaching, we can expect some more. As an Attleboro business owner, it’s important for you to be aware and prepared for what to do/ what we can do to help after a flood or other water damage to your property.

Water extraction

When you call us after you experience any water damage, we’ll start by getting rid of all standing water to reduce the initial and secondary damage.

Cleaning and disinfecting

After the water is gone, our technicians will begin cleaning and disinfecting the area. This is also in efforts to reduce the musty odor!

Drying

Typically right after the water is extracted, we will place our drying equipment such as air movers and dehumidifiers to start the drying process.

Our technicians will do daily checks to ensure the property is drying properly and is showing good levels of dryness!

Odor after water damage

Think about walking into an old basement…what do you smell?? Must… that’s because of all the moisture held down there. The same thing happens after a water damage, if any material is left the slightest bit damp, it will begin to stink.

Carpets, walls, furniture, and other material in your commercial space are likely to suffer from some damage if your building experiences any type of water damage. At SERVPRO of the Attleboros, we’re equipped, experienced, and trained to eliminate any offensive odors after a water loss! We have numerous types of deodorants and techniques to make sure your commercial property is smelling “Like it never even happened.”

When it comes to water damage, it’s kind of difficult to determine the exact source of the odor, but at SERVPRO, we use HEPA air scrubbers to remove all those tiny little odor particles from the air. Sometimes we may even use a fogging method to neutralize odors.

If you experience any water damage, give us a call at (508) 223-0505

Back to the basics of water damage | Swansea, MA

9/3/2020 (Permalink)

water damage restoration experts Check on your pipes regularly so if there is a leak, you may catch it before it's too late!

Thinking about water damage, we know there are many many causes, but let's go into the basics of how water damage is typically caused in a Swansea residential (or commercial) space

Pipe burst

Leaking or burst pipes are probably one of the most common sources of water damage. It's probably what came to mind first for you! Toilet and sink drains can easily be clogged and backed up, causing a lot of pressure in the pipes, causing a burst or leak. Old, rusty pipes are also common causes of leaking or burst pipes. It's important for you to keep an eye on or regularly check on your pipes so if there is a leak, you may catch it sooner rather than later when it becomes a massive issue. 

Plumbing issues 

Typically plumbing issues are very hard to catch early due to the pipes being in the walls and under the sink. Checking around the plumbing in your bathroom (and kitchen) can, again, help detect early signs of a leak and prevent further damage. 

Appliances 

As your appliances get older, so do their inner workings and pipes. Just like the ones in your home system, the pipes can rust and leak or burst. Washing machines, water heaters, and dishwashers are a few of the most common culprits of water damage that we receive calls for here at SERVPRO of the Attleboros

HVAC unit 

If your HVAC unit isn't regularly maintained, it can cause you quite some issues, including water and mold damage. Two things you really don't want in your Attleboro home or business. 

Weather & storm 

With the unpredictable weather in New England, you can never be too prepared for any season. Make sure you take all precautions before a storm, whether it be snow, rain, or hail. Trim hedges and trees around your home, check for any leaks and cracks in the foundation or windows and doors. 

If you experience any water damage, no matter the cause, SERVPRO of the Attleboros is here to help! We're your local water damage restoration experts! 

Office cleaning hacks for your Attleboro commercial space

8/19/2020 (Permalink)

As an Attleboro business owner, especially now, it's important for you to have a professional clean and sanitize your office space, retail space, or other commercial properties. However, sometimes you can go the DIY route. 

Steam cleaning

According to the CDC , using steam to clean and sterilize is a safe and effective method. 

Baking soda

If your office kitchen is a bit...stinky... break out the baking soda! Baking soda is the MVP of household (or office) cleaning supplies. Sprinkle some baking soda around the sink, in the trashcan, and in the garbage disposal, if you have one! 

You can also add lemon or orange peels to the garbage disposal and run it to get rid of any foul smells. 

Vinegar

Vinegar is another MVP of household, natural cleaners. Vinegar can help break down gunk and even clean windows! If you need to get those windows streak free and you are in quite a pinch, use some vinegar and wipe away! 

Vinegar can also help remove pen marks, and liven up some old furniture. Use a combo of lemon oil and white vinegar, spray it on your wood surface of choice and use a microfiber cloth to wipe clean! 

Sticky Notes 

Sticky notes are, of course great for taking notes, but they're also great for cleaning up little messes! Using sticky notes to clean crumbs from your keyboard keys, or clean up little tiny messes is very handy and a quick hack! 

If any smells, messes, or other cleaning goes beyond what you can DIY or what your janitorial staff can handle, give SERVPRO of the Attleboros a call at 508-223-0505, we're here to help!!
