When Water, Fire, Mold, or Just a Good Cleaning Is Needed in Your North Kingston Home

For more than 15 years, our SERVPRO team has worked to provide restoration services that fully embodied the needs of North Kingston home and business owners. We have grown to become a one-stop-shop for recovery after disasters, but also for more specific threats to your property like air quality concerns in your HVAC system, biohazardous conditions in a structure, or a need for build back after a considerable loss incident. Not only have we found successes in building our report with hundreds of homes and businesses over the years, but we have managed to help those hit by devastating natural disasters elsewhere in the country as well.

Fire

North Kingston fires can be devastating for your home, and the restoration services that our SERVPRO team provides seeks to address every need of structure after a blaze. Once first responders have left the scene and turned the property back over to the customer, we can immediately begin working with you and your insurance company to get the approvals in place to start mitigation services as quickly as possible. The sooner that these steps can get started, the less devastating property loss becomes.

Mitigation is one of the most vital steps for a customer’s property, and one that features many different tasks happening simultaneously. When our professionals reach a fire-damaged North Kingston home, we can start by clearing out the debris. Beginning where the fire started, we can manage the densest concentrations of ash, debris, material remnants, and more. After the debris gets removed, we can turn our attention to other cleaning needs exposed surfaces might have.

Likewise, the contents of your North Kingston home must also get attention to reduce the total loss that the customer experiences. While we offer pack-out services that can allow for more intricate cleaning and deodorization off-site, it can often be most cost-effective to restore belongings at the job site and securely store them in undamaged areas of the property until full restoration and recovery complete. If soot cleaning and widespread deodorization are necessary, our warehouse features immersion cleaning techniques, and an ozone chamber to neutralize smoke smells in numerous items at once.

Storm

Here in Rhode Island, we have seen some of the best and worst weather conditions that nature has to offer. When severe storms occur, such as hurricanes breaching the coastlines, we know how important it is to respond quickly to crippled North Kingston homes. We have a comprehensive approach to restoration after storm and flood losses, offering both mitigation for water damage and efficient solutions for temporary board up and tarping.

We are a Large Loss provider for the area, meaning that we have a pool of resources and personnel to ensure that we can handle the full measure of restoration demands after devastating storm losses. Our team is experienced in helping homes and businesses get back on their feet, and that has extended to our traveling emergency responders who have managed to help out in other areas of the country after hurricanes and natural disasters threatened thousands. We even have efficient solutions for flooding in North Kingston homes.

Flooding can happen in different ways, but how the threat gets resolved involves the skilled SERVPRO professionals dispatched to your North Kingston home. With powerful extractors like our electric sump pump and gas-powered trash pump, we can reduce standing water and prepare the property for focused drying with a combination of heaters, air movers, dehumidifiers, and other specialty drying tools.

Mold

There is no mistaking the severity of mold conditions that could exist at any time in a North Kingston home. Under the right moist environmental factors, spores can set into organic materials and colonize in as little as 48 hours. With such a finite timeline from the onset of damp conditions, it is vital to manage moisture with drying techniques and inhibit the growth of microbes using antimicrobial products and biocides.

Remediation can help remove the colonies from your North Kingston home, and this can happen in several ways. Often damaged surfaces can become too severely eroded and deteriorated by the growth and expansion of mold colonies to be salvageable. In this situation, our licensed general contractors can remove these damaged construction materials and replace them at a later point when drying and microbial management have completed.

Cleaning a surface affected by mold is also possible, but usually requires sophisticated abrasive cleaning techniques like soda and media blasting. These practices can not only protect the hosting material from further mold deterioration but can reduce the severity of musty odors the former colony emitted. For more direct deodorization, however, we can utilize tools like our thermal fogger or ozone machine in North Kingston properties.

When a controlled demolition is needed to remove non-salvageable materials, SERVPRO technicians can erect containment barriers to inhibit cross-contamination. Polyethelene sheets, using tape and tension poles, can effectively isolate work areas from unaffected rooms of the structure.

Water

Water damaging events are the most common callouts that our technicians receive every week, and as such, has become a disaster, or at least an inconvenience, that we consistently stay ready to address. From stocked production trailers and work vehicles at our warehouse to the ongoing training of our technicians, we have experience and education in the recovery of water losses for North Kingston homes and businesses.

For severe water loss incidents, we rely on an array of extraction tools to prepare North Kingston houses for the drying efforts necessary. For clean water scenarios, we can often trust in our electric submersible pump to reduce standing water to less than two inches. Light wands and wet vacuums can resolve the issue from that point, and clear pooling surface water before our drying tools take over.

Monitoring is a large part of the efficient recovery we offer our North Kingston customers after a water loss incident. With thermal imagery and surface moisture meters, we can determine the success of air movers and dehumidifiers positioned throughout the residence. Each of these readings can help to guide our SERVPRO technicians to a new positioning for the equipment to continue maximally removing moisture and making water losses “Like it never even happened.”

As a reputable restoration team, you can count on our team to be there when you need us. Give our SERVPRO of Newport & Bristol Counties emergency response unit a call anytime disaster strikes at (401) 847-8145.
