Restoring Fire Damage with a Multi-tiered Approach in Bristol
SERVPRO IICRC certified technicians are trained and experienced in all phases of fire damage restoration for your Bristol home. We are Here to Help.
SERVPRO Has Experienced Fire Cleanup Technicians Just a Phone Call Away
Fires can cause extensive property damage. Often, these situations occur due to malfunctioning electronics, naked sources of flame such as candles and stoves, or issues with an indoor furnace. At SERVPRO, we believe in responding quickly to property emergencies and guarantee to arrive on-site within four hours of notification of loss.
When confronting fire damage in your Bristol home, it is vital to take a multilateral approach. Disasters like this can affect your home in many different ways causing physical damage in the form of charred or burnt materials, cosmetic issues in the form of smoke deposits on surfaces, and odor issues. We ensure our technicians have completed certification in various restoration areas to combat this. Our current areas of expertise include odor control technicians (OCT), water restoration technicians (WRT), and fire & smoke damage restoration technicians (FSRT). Since combusting materials can release toxins into the home environment, our roster also includes health & safety technicians (HST) and lead renovations (RRRP) specialists for older properties.
Using a multilateral approach is often achieved through stages. First, experienced technicians assess the property and pre-test materials to make informed decisions about salvageable belongings. Next, our team disposes of debris, including the organization of dumpsters or transportation of these materials to a separate waste facility. Once the space is clear of both non-salvageable and salvageable materials, we can begin performing the restoration. Drying any residual moisture from firefighting efforts is essential to combating smells and mitigating against further losses that the interaction of soot with moisture could cause. Cleaning is often performed in two stages. The first stage involves dry cleaning using light vacuum wands and dry sponges, followed by more nuanced cleaning products, including water-based detergents or chemical solvents. We can determine which cleaning products to use based on the type of smoke residue, either wet or dry.
Packing Out Belongings VS. Keeping Possessions On-site
- The pack-out procedure is usually reserved for severe disasters and involves documenting belongings before transporting them to a separate storage facility.
- All belongings stored in our climate-controlled warehouses are vetted thoroughly for potential vermin or pests and allocated to a specific area where they remain throughout restoration.
- Technicians may decide it is more efficient to clean and restore items on site by creating a designated clean room and bringing in portable cleaning equipment.
Cleaning and disposing of items subjected to smoke and soot is the most effective method of odor neutralization in most cases. But sometimes, odors can persist after these stages are complete. SERVPRO has various ways to tackle stubborn, persistent burnt odors in your home. Again, we rely on a multilateral approach that includes masking agents to spray directly onto surfaces, fumigation with ultra-low volume (ULV) foggers, or concentrated odor counteractant pellets. Odor particles are volatile, making finding a singular source of odor challenging and time inefficient. By adopting a multi-tiered approach, we can be confident of resolving an odor issue quickly and ensuring that your home is rid of any unpleasant reminders of the recent event.
Helping to Rid Your Home of Smoke or Burnt Odors
- Since odors are volatile opening windows and doors to allow air circulation can help to reduce their impact. Additionally, industrial venting fans can further encourage circulation.
- Smoke odors generally disperse within two to four weeks without any equipment or chemical products making masking agents a useful tool in the interim.
- Odor perception is enhanced when moisture is present. Dehumidification and drying can help reduce the impact of odors in your home.

Helping Residents of Bristol Overcome Water Damage
You need IICRC-certified technicians for any level of water damage in your Bristol home. Call SERVPRO today for help.
SERVPRO Can Help with Water Removal Following Pipe Leaks or Bursts
Water intrusion events require immediate attention to avoid excessive property damages. Fixtures that directly connect to supply pipes, such as washing machines, showers, and faucets, can result in large quantities of liquid entering the home if they malfunction. SERVPRO is here to help reverse the damages caused by leaks, pipe bursts, and faulty appliances.
The severity of water damage in your Bristol home is determined by the quantity of liquid entering the property and the length of time it remains wet. Moisture contains microbes that can proliferate in your home's warm, humid conditions. The proliferation of microbes leads to stagnation and forces restoration to encompass decontamination, which can be damaging to your home. Porous materials, for example, are particularly susceptible to moisture contaminants and may require demolition with prolonged exposure to stagnant water. Burst pipes can damage your home through the sheer quantity of liquid they release. A broken pipe can release thousands of gallons of water in twenty-four hours. SERVPRO is a licensed service that has the experience to help with contamination issues, flooding from burst pipes, or smaller contained damages relating to liquid moisture.
Entering a flooded part of a property can be dangerous and requires attention to detail and experience. Our technicians wear thick, chemical-resistant gloves, full-body suits, and n-94 masks as part of our personal protective equipment. Steel-capped boots help protect technicians from debris, broken floorboards, exposed nails, and broken glass. Careful attention to slip and trip or electrical hazards from exposed wiring is equally essential. When working in a wet property, our equipment is run through ground circuit fault interrupters to prevent short-circuiting or other malfunctions during the extraction phase. To tackle potential contamination issues, we cut away sections of drywall from the lower portions of the wall and replace them with clean drywall once the area is appropriately disinfected and sanitized to a safe level.
Home Maintenance and Preventing Water Intrusion
- Checking that pipes are correctly insulating ahead of the winter months can reduce their propensity to split or crack.
- Clearing gutters from leaves or debris ensure that blockages do not backup causing harm to your home.
- Maintenance of appliances and hardware such as sump pumps can help to reduce the likelihood of malfunction.
The most effective mitigation tool in a restoration technician's arsenal is a practical understanding of the science of psychrometry. Psychrometry relates to how moisture, air, and materials act together. In a home environment, the practice of psychrometry could be through dehumidification, air movement, or heating. All of these practical techniques help to encourage fast drying through evaporation. However, drying the property as efficiently as possible is a balancing act. Warm air, for example, can hold more moisture than cool air. But once the air is saturated with moisture, the speed of evaporation is significantly reduced. This process is why dehumidifiers are often essential equipment alongside air movers or heating elements when attempting to dry a property.
The Mitigative Benefits of Correctly Drying a Property
- Thorough drying of a property can help to reduce secondary damages, including the growth of bacteria, fungi, or viruses.
- Ensuring that humidity levels remain below 60 grains per pound reduces the chance of vapor damage that condensates inside walls or ceiling cavities.
- Many materials in a home environment are significantly weaker and more prone to breakage when wet.

The Right Response to Mold Damage for Bristol Residents
You know who to call if you find mold in your Bristol home. Contact the professionals at SERVPRO today for mold damage remediation help.
SERVPRO in Bristol Has Expert Mold Remediation Technicians
Microorganisms are a natural part of any indoor environment. However, like fungi, some microbes can proliferate rapidly in parts of the home and become a nuisance. Molds are fungi that produce unpleasant odors, damage decor, and spread quickly from one area to another. If you suspect fungal growth on your property, it is wise to contact microbial remediation professionals as soon as possible.
Remediating mold damage in your Bristol home can be time-consuming and ineffective without the proper training and equipment. Identifying the root cause of a microbial growth issue can be challenging, but ensuring your home makes a full recovery is essential. If you cannot identify the source of the issue, there is a strong chance that the problem returns a few days after cleaning. Microbes have a short life cycle which can see a single spore grow to a full-size colony within 48 to 72 hours. Full-size colonies can produce between 200 and 500 reproductive spores meaning that a minor microbial problem can lead to exponential damage over just a few weeks. Spores can become airborne or travel on clothing, footwear, and belongings. Practicing diligence by avoiding moldy areas of the home or reducing potential airflow can help slow the spread of an infestation.
One of the core principles that we work toward for remediation technicians is containment. Containment prevents spores from spreading via airways or clothing from one home area to another. Since many of the strategies used to eliminate infestations involve demolishing materials or utilizing abrasive cleaning methods, there is a strong chance of spores becoming airborne during the remediation process. We use common-sense practices, such as changing out of personal protective equipment (PPE) when moving between affected and unaffected areas of the home. Other methods involve more advanced strategies such as placing negative air pressure machines in close vicinity when demolishing drywall. Negative air pressure machines use a vacuum to pull surrounding air into a storage space. These machines are handy at removing airborne spores from the air into a controlled area where they can be disposed of responsibly.
How to Prevent the Spread of Mold in Your Home
- Try to reduce foot traffic into rooms with musty odors or visible signs of microbial growth, and always wash hands or parts of you that come into contact with the infestation.
- Reducing ventilation in areas with infestation by closing doors and windows to block airflow.
- Avoid disturbing colonies without first placing vital containment protocols that reduce spreading.
Chemical action is becoming an increasingly helpful tool for remediation professionals fighting against microbial growth. There are several categories of chemical agents that, in theory, can reduce growth or destroy microorganisms themselves. Biocides are poisonous substances that, with controlled usage, can eliminate microbes. Common biocides include the herbicides or pesticides used in agricultural maintenance. Anti-microbial agents are also designed to kill microorganisms. The household product bleach is considered an anti-microbial agent. Using chemical agents should be completed sparingly if possible. For example, technicians may take extra care when selecting a chemical action if pets are on the property. Equally, some chemical agents are less effective on wet materials, which should also be considered when attempting to eliminate mold.
Alternatives to Chemical Remediation
- Dehumidification can be a valuable tool in remediation.
- SERVPRO utilizes refrigerant (cooling) and desiccant (gel) technologies in dehumidification.
- Controlled demolition and disposal of infested materials.

Water Removal from Bristol Office Elements and Materials
SERVPRO gives you access to expertly trained water remediation specialists that put vast resources and years of experience to work for you.
The Many Types of Water Removal
Water removal comes in many forms, especially considering the efforts of our Large Loss recovery team in properties like office buildings. From standing water on the structure's floors to removing moisture from the air, we must approach this restoration from several angles.
Removing Standing Water
Water removal from Bristol office buildings often initially means the efforts made to eliminate standing water from the property. Pooling can be destructive to sensitive building materials and contents, so extractors like pumps and vacuums play a part in restoring the property early on.
Overwhelmed Wall Assemblies
The migration of moisture can infiltrate wall systems and saturate materials like drywall. The path of moving water often finds its way into the wall cavities. Even with the metal track framing, drying is critical to prevent permanent damage. SERVPRO must:
- Dry the structural cavity
- Repair plumbing
- Eliminate ruined building materials
- Prevent mold development
Moisture in the Environment
While drying is a critical element of the restoration needed in the office, it also increases environmental moisture concerns. Evaporation raises the moisture content of the air, and there can be a point where this content plateaus and the drying process stops. Dehumidifiers manage humidity to keep drying measures productive, especially the trailered desiccant unit capable of operating in several office areas.
Saturated Office Carpeting
The carpeting in the office building, often a low-pile installation meant to be easy to clean and relatively cheaper to replace after a few years, can be quickly saturated by standing water. The objective of preserving wet carpets is to remove the trapped moisture as fast as possible with special equipment like wands and weighted extractors. Wands are a powerful attachment for wet vacuums or standalone pumps.
Several types of water removal services can help office buildings after disasters. With pooling water and absorption concerns, we must work fast to get mitigation started immediately. Our SERVPRO of Bristol team can help when you call (860) 582-3330.
Is Your Bristol Home Ready for Spring Flooding?
Spring rains can bring flood damage. You can trust the SERVPRO brand to restore your home.
What to Expect During Bristol Flood Damage Mitigation
At first glance, flood damage can look overwhelming. If there is one positive, the faster you start the cleanup efforts, the more potential for saving building materials and items affected by the excess moisture.
When SERVPRO handles flood damage in Bristol homes, the priority is to identify where the water has affected the home and remove it. Even though our emergency response teams arrive hours after the initial phone call, there is often little to no standing water, which can also be an issue. Drywall is notorious for wicking water, and it can pool behind baseboards and cause secondary damages such as mold and foul odors.
We use different types of moisture detection devices to determine the areas that need to be dried. We certify our SERVPRO technicians in the science of psychrometrics or the study of air and water vapor. The preparation for the drying phase is a detailed process to ensure no extra residual moisture remains. We make flood cuts in the drywall that is retaining water. Generally, our technicians use probes or thermal imaging to determine where the moisture has penetrated and cut several inches above that area to ensure adequate airflow during drying. We set up specific configurations to direct airflow into small spaces, such as behind baseboards, when necessary.
Air movers are more potent than fans and perform a function no regular fan could do. They force air at high speeds across surfaces, and this causes the water vapor to rise where one of our dehumidifying methods captures and expels the moisture. Then, thorough cleaning with our antifungal and disinfectant solutions drastically reduces the potential for mold after the fact.
SERVPRO of Bristol is ready to help you with flood damage cleanup in your home. Call us at (860) 582-3330, and our technicians can be on-site quickly because we are “We’re Faster To Any Size Disaster.”

SERVPRO Responds Fast When Broken Appliances Require Water Removal in Bristol
Although storm damage and overland flooding in Bristol grab the headlines, statistics show that most water losses in residential properties are linked to burst pipes or malfunctioning appliances. Just because a leaking water heater or a faulty pump in a washing machine is a commonplace problem does not mean the damage possible is not severe. Hiring a water damage mitigation and remediation company familiar with extracting significant quantities of fluids is the first step.
How Much Water Can Escape from a Broken Appliance?
The need for water removal in your Bristol home after an appliance malfunction is urgent. For example, if you think about the capacity of a traditional tank water heater providing hot water for showers, dishes, laundry, and handwashing for a family, 50 to 75 gallons is typical. A top-loading washing machine uses 40 gallons, while a front-loading machine uses 20. Dishwashers come in lower at 4 to 6 gallons. If the tank, drum, or outside housing ruptures on any of these appliances, that amount of water flows out, creating a substantial mess even if you notice the event immediately.
What Happens if the Appliance Breaks Overnight or When You Are Away?
Most appliances are plumbed directly into a supply line. If the water is not shut off, it continues to flow into the appliance. Water heaters draw from the line in response to the outflow, and the supply water then adds to the gallons already spilled. If a pump continues operating in the clothes or dishwasher, the same additive effect occurs. Suppose no one is at home or near the appliance. In that case, hundreds of gallons of water fill the space of origin and then spread throughout the rest of your home, causing additional water damage issues in Bristol.
Once safety concerns are addressed, our crews rapidly remove the standing water. If electricity is shut off in your residence, our gas-fueled and submersible pumps avoid delay in our response. After the water level dips below two inches, our truck-mounted heavy-duty extractors also can operate off generators. Team members systematically move through the wet spaces, using wanded attachments to suction liquids. Squeegees push the decreasing quantity of water towards the extractors.
Moisture Detection and Metering
Our technicians use their Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) training to sketch out the extent of the water migration using sensitive devices first to locate and then measure the remaining moisture. Thermal imaging also helps detect the presence of trapped water. Moisture data is charted to provide a baseline for the final stage of water removal and structural drying.
Eliminating Trapped Water
The final stages of a water removal job involve evacuating moisture not easily extractable. Two main challenges present:
Releasing Trapped Standing Water
Water can collect in a wide range of building cavities, untouchable by pumps and truck-mounted extractors. When we locate these caches, several strategies permit success:
- Portable extractors with wand extenders can improve efforts in confined spaces.
- Controlled demolition such as partial removal of drywall or paneling (flood cuts) or drilled or cut holes release hidden water for removal.
Evaporating Absorbed Moisture from Structures
Our Applied Structural Drying (ASD) technicians determine drying goals based on the moisture data gathered earlier, including moisture levels in similar materials in an unaffected area of your home. We strike a scientifically-based balance of air movement, temperature, and humidity that facilities the movement of moisture from building materials into the air as a vapor. The vapor is then collected and discarded. Equipment operated to achieve the balance and effectuate the removal includes:
- Air movers
Our crew monitors the process, counting on the homeowner to leave the equipment on and in place to reach the drying goals.

Water Mitigation for Burlington Businesses
Water mitigation services for your business should be left to the pros. Call SERVPRO for their expert techs for the job.
SERVPRO of Bristol Provides Commercial Water Mitigation Services
Water damage in businesses can get costly. An untreated faucet leak alone can emit a whopping 250 gallons of water per month, impacting upkeep costs significantly, especially for small business owners. Worse still, winters in Burlington put pipes at risk of freezing and bursting, creating even more costly repair and replacement needs.
SERVPRO can begin water mitigation for Burlington commercial properties within hours of initial franchise contact. This firm is staffed with the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC)-certified technicians that use industrial-grade tools and OSHA-approved antimicrobial solutions to prepare spaces for repairs.
Pipe Burst At The Burlington Library and Elsewhere
In early January of 2018, the Burlington Public Library endured damages resulting from a frozen sprinkler pipe bursting in the facility’s children’s section. The pipe was successfully repaired, and the surrounding area was restored. However, the building required several days of closure to perform repairs. A total of 78 books were damaged, and the library backdated returns to avoid accidental late fees.
According to a study of over 400 burst pipe insurance claims by Philadelphia Insurance Companies:
- Sprinkler pipes caused-51% of claims studied.
- Sprinkler-related claims were 33% more expensive than domestic pipe failures on average.
- Average losses caused by frozen pipes were approximately $27,000, with the most costly claim in the survey generating a whopping $1.7 million in damages.
- Damage is more costly for sprinkler failures that occur in multi-story structures, particularly residential facilities and properties that require specialized equipment maintenance and sterile conditions.
- The older the building, the more likely it needs code updates that can lower the risk of frozen pipes bursting.
Tactics businesses can take to safeguard against potential losses include cost-effective measures like:
- Installing leak sensors
- Implementing flow detection and shutoff systems
- Improving heating and insulation on the property, especially in cold and drafty areas
It is imperative for businesses to ensure that their buildings are up to code to avoid costly disasters as much as possible.
How Does SERVPRO Clean Furniture and Fixtures Affected by Burst Pipes?
SERVPRO implements commercial water mitigation with the help of a variety of tools and techniques. A frozen pipe bursting in a restaurant kitchen, for example, can require the following:
- Inspection of floor tiles for signs of damage to the grout
- Extensive water extraction to prepare the damaged area for drying
- Sanitation of surfaces with EPA-registered biocides, including SERVPRO’s proprietary solutions
- Removal of cabinet toe-kicks and wall baseboards for structural drying
Drying commences with the help of centrifugal air movers positioned at 45-degree angles in relation to walls every 10 to 16 linear feet. These devices act in tandem with commercial-grade dehumidifiers to remove moisture from surfaces, pull it into the air, pass it across refrigerant coils or desiccant materials, and expel dry air that returns humidity to normal levels. Moisture is isolated as condensation and collected for disposal in a treated sewer.
SERVPRO of Bristol can be reached at (860) 582-3330 for commercial water mitigation services.

Mitigating Effects of Flood Damage in Bristol Homes
Flood damage can wreak havoc on your Bristol home, affecting the structural components and contents. Hiring a professional restoration company like SERVPRO can help limit the extent of the loss and prevent any secondary damages.
SERVPRO techs use a multi-step approach to mitigate the flood damage to your Bristol homes. Removing the standing flood water is the first step of the restoration process. SERVPRO techs use several types of extracting equipment and pumps to get the water out of your flooded home as soon as possible. However, controlling microbial growth is a significant challenge as floodwater after a storm is always contaminated.
Steps in Controlling Microbial Growth During Flood Restoration
SERVPRO techs stick to the guidelines set forth by the IICRC during the restoration of flood damage to your Bristol home. Since the presence of water promotes and sustains microbial growth, the primary steps in mitigation of the damage are:
- Removing any contaminated material
- Removing the residual moisture by reducing the humidity
SERVPRO techs focus on drying the structure as soon as possible rather than relying on chemical agents to control microbial growth. Although the antimicrobials can be a good defense against the proliferation of microbes, they are helpful only if considered as an additional step after the primary mitigation steps mentioned above.
SERVPRO techs only use EPA-registered broad-spectrum biocides when water damage presents a potential for contamination, such as in a flooded home. Techs also ensure that the customers are briefed regarding the professional biocides being used on their property, and we never apply any product without your prior consent.
We are committed to helping you in these trying times and restoring your home “Like it never even happened.” Call SERVPRO of Bristol with questions or queries at (860) 582-3330.
How Can Larger Bristol Office Complexes Contend with Mold?
For the threat that mold can become to your office staff and your clients, professional mold remediation companies like our SERVPRO team can help.
Microbial threats can be a hazard and destructive to structural elements, making it a substantial concern for your Bristol office complex.
Regardless of how diligent custodial staff might be in your Bristol office complex, water disasters can often leave moisture and dampness concerns out of sight. Even though the surface water gets addressed and the facility seems fine, absorption might have moved water to areas that you cannot easily see or inspect. Often it is most beneficial to seek out professional restoration companies for water disasters and emergencies. However, after the incident occurs, you should ensure that you have fully addressed the concerns. Without removing moisture from structural cavities and trapped water in materials, you could contend with mold growth on a severe scale.
While you might seek mold removal for Bristol offices, what is really necessary is mold remediation. We cannot remove all naturally occurring spores in every environment, but we can address the immediate damage that these organisms can cause to the structural elements and contents within your office building. We can help with efficient recovery practices from the damage to documentation and records to structural deterioration of drywall, carpeting, and other sensitive materials. Understanding the standard methods for remediation and site recovery can help to showcase the need for these services as soon as you believe mold exists on the property. Addressing microbial threats often involves:
- Evaluation and Testing
- Content Inventory and Containment
- Remediation Solutions
- Post-Remediation Repairs and Reconstruction
What Can Environmental Testing Tell You?
Sampling and testing the environment where mold might exist can be very beneficial in determining your facility's state. Often, when you believe that mold damage exists, it can be a pressing concern for your staff and clients' safety and well-being. Industrial hygienists can help in this regard through a series of air samples examined at a laboratory to reveal pertinent information about the structure and any microbial threats present. Results of these tests often convey:
- Likelihood of Mold Growth – Mold growth is not always visible and might not appear on surfaces for weeks after colonization begins. Testing the air reveals when experts believe mold colonization has likely started.
- Spore Concentration – The concentrations of spores in the affected environment can tell our technicians and the property owner what measures should get taken to alleviate these concerns. Air scrubbers and other filtration equipment can often help in this regard.
- Type of Mold Present – Testing the specific kind of mold is beneficial to understand the measures necessary to remove it efficiently. With thousands of structural mold and fungus types, the right approach and cleaning measures can save time and money.
What Pre-Remediation Tasks Benefit Your Office?
Several measures can help your office building to reduce loss during a mold growth threat. Our remediation professionals can oversee several initial tasks to protect both the structure and its occupants. These practices also fixate on reducing the deterioration and irreparable damage that contents and documentation can often suffer when exposed to microbial threats. Some of these techniques include:
- Content Management – The relocation and removal of potentially damaged content and records from your office space can eliminate irreparable damage concerns. When exposure has already occurred, on-site drying and recovery methods are needed.
- Containment – Establishing a drying zone can help not only regulate airflow and humidity but can also prevent the migration of mold spores.
- Establishing a Staging Area – An adjacent space to the work area is ideal for storing equipment and drying tools necessary for remediation and cleaning.
What Remediation Tactics Are the Most Effective?
Mold remediation can involve several different approaches depending on the materials affected and the condition of your office space. Drywall in individual offices often requires a different approach to microbial concerns on glue-down carpets in the communal areas shared by many employees. Usually, removing mold colonies involves several practices working simultaneously, including sanding, media blasting, surface cleaning, and demolition.
When Does Build Back Occur?
Reconstruction is one of the final stages in getting your office doors back open again after a mold damage situation. We can seamlessly transition to rebuilding and repairs after remediation and cleaning, from replacing wall systems and flooring materials to long-term solutions to prevent recurrences.
For the threat that mold can become to your office staff and your clients, professional mold remediation companies like our SERVPRO of Bristol team can help. We have experienced technicians to respond quickly to these emergencies when you call (860) 582-3330.
