Luckily, the basement was not over filled with personal items, which is often the case.

SERVPRO of Newtown & Southern Litchfield County remediates attic mold in New Milford, CT

Before working on the mold remediation, our estimator recommended that a leak that had caused the moisture be repaired. After the repair, our team was ready to begin cleaning up the mold.

Puffback causes soot and ash to spread throughout  Newtown, CT home

Puffback causes soot and ash to spread throughout Newtown, CT home

When the furnace had a puff back in this Newtown home, the soot damage was substantial. The clean up included walls, carpeting and personal possessions as well as the duct work. This filter shows the amount of soot that blasted through the house. Since the soot from a puffback is from the oil burner, it is sticky and thick. It cannot be cleaned traditionally (this will cause it to smear rather than lift).  Puffbacks require professionally cleaning and are typically covered under homeowner's insurance. 

Tractor fire in Sandy Hook, CT home causes smoke damage

Tractor fire in Sandy Hook, CT home causes smoke damage

When a tractor spontaneously caught fire in the garage of this Sandy Hook home, the smoke came up from below and filtration occurred in the carpet fiber in the den of the main level.

The SERVPRO of Newtown & Southern Litchfield County team has the experience to know what to look for after house fires to make sure it is cleaned up right.

Once we had the basement empty, we were able to begin the process to reduce mold spores in the air and on the remaining surfaces.

We clean HVAC ducts of pollutants, dirt and mold in Brookfield

SERVPRO of Newtown and Southern Litchfield County  just finished up a duct cleaning job at a local school. Ventilation systems are often the biggest culprit in poor indoor air quality. With the hours you spend at work and in your home, the air that you breathe is essential to your health! Make it a priority to schedule an inspection of the duct work in your Newtown area business on annual basis. While some systems remain clean and do not require regular cleaning, others tend to collect pollutants such as pollen, dust and debris and redistribute them throughout the home.

Floor mat system for restoring water damaged flooring

Floor mat system for restoring water damaged flooring

One way that we can restore flooring and eliminate the need for replacing it is through the use of the floor mat system. This system utilizes a strong suction by use of mats, which are attached to a vacuum with hoses, allowing the vacuum to draw out moisture from underneath the floor. The water  becomes vapor and is released into the air. Finally, its time for the dehumidifier, which draws the vapor out of the air, turns it into water and drains it out of the room.

One of the tools that we use is called a hydrosensor, aka moisture probe. When the probe tips on the HydroSensor are pushed into materials to penetrate the surface, an electric current is sent between the probes.
