Call Today 781-834-7707

Every water damage event is a little different and requires a unique solution, but the general process stays the same. You can click on any of the steps below to learn more about that process.

Step 1- Emergency Contact

When you call, our representative will guide you through several questions that will help us respond to your water emergency more quickly and efficiently. This initial contact is an important part of a fast, effective restoration.

Step 2- Inspection and Water Damage Assessment

We carefully inspect your property’s water damage, determining the type of water damage and the areas affected. This is a crucial step to creating an effective plan of action that will result in a successful restoration.

Step 3- Water Removal/Water Extraction

Typically, hundreds of thousands of gallons of water are removed using our powerful pumps and vacuums during the water removal process. We start this process as soon as possible to minimize further damage and to help prevent mold growth.

Step 4- Drying and Dehumidification

After the bulk of the water has been removed, we use specialized equipment to target the water that’s harder to access. They use less intrusive, scientific drying methods to draw the remaining water and moisture from your property with air movers and dehumidifiers.

Step 5- Cleaning and Sanitizing

Water damage also affects your belongings, like furniture, clothing, and personal items. We can clean restorable items using a number of specialized cleaning techniques. They also sanitize with antimicrobial treatments and remove odors using industrial air scrubbers and fogging equipment.

Step 6- Restoration

The last step is restoring your home or business back to its pre-water damage condition. The restoration step can be relatively minor, such as replacing a few drywall panels or could include major reconstruction, such as rebuilding entire rooms of a home or business.

Does Your Marshfield Home Have A Mold Problem?

4/13/2023 (Permalink)

Some restoration businesses advertise "mold removal" and even guarantee to remove all mold, which is a fallacy. The fact is microscopic mold spores naturally occur almost everywhere, both outdoors and indoors. This makes it impossible to remove all mold from a home or business. Therefore, mold remediation reduces the mold spore count back to its natural or baseline level.

Consider the following mold facts:

  • Mold is present almost everywhere, indoors and outdoors.
  • Mold spores are microscopic and float along in the air and may enter your home through windows, doors, or AC/heating systems or even hitch a ride indoors on your clothing or a pet.
  • Mold spores thrive on moisture. Mold spores can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water. These colonies may produce allergens and irritants.
  • Before mold remediation can begin, any sources of water or moisture must be addressed. Otherwise, the mold may return.
  • Mold often produces a strong, musty odor and can lead you to possible mold problem areas.
  • Even higher-than-normal indoor humidity can support mold growth. Keep indoor humidity below 45 percent.

If your home or business has a mold problem, we can inspect and assess your property and use our specialized training, equipment, and expertise to remediate your mold infestation.

Don’t Stress About Water Damage Remediation

1/4/2023 (Permalink)

We have the water removal equipment and experience to make it look like it never even happened.

When you realize your tub overflowed or the water heater leaked all over your basement, you want to dry your home as fast as possible. Too often, homeowners call us after deterioration sets in instead of when the initial event took place. We have the proper equipment needed to keep such harm from happening to your home.

Protecting your home from the harsh effects of water damage often requires the use of water removal and drying equipment. Water that escaped from pipes and basins and soaked into floors and other surfaces inside your property does not disappear from your home merely because you no longer see it. Just as it can soak into things, it can also evaporate into the air and move to other areas of your home.

Water that becomes water vapor can condense on other surfaces and cause damage. Damage can begin to take place within only a few hours of the initial incident. However, the effects might not become apparent for some time. The damage that can happen as a result of water left to work its way around your home costs much more than removing the water before such damage can ruin your home and contents. We use equipment that draws the water out of these spaces. 

SERVPRO of Marshfield/Rockland uses these and other useful tools to mitigate homes when water removal must take place. Preventing damage from occurring saves our customers expense and aggravation. Contact us at 781-834-7707 for all your water removal and damage needs.

Ice Dams

1/4/2023 (Permalink)

Winter in New England can cause a number of issues on homes. Ice dams can cause extensive water damage to your home.

Ice Dams form along the eaves of a roof preventing the snow from adequately draining and creating a backup. When Water is trapped it seeks a way to escape. The escape route often being an opening in your home.  The water seeps into your home, getting into the insulation and eventually damaging walls and ceilings. The results can be extensive damage to your home. 

How To Prevent Ice Dams:

  • Seal air leaks and ducts
  • Add more insulation
  • Ensure attics are properly ventilated

If you suffer from an Ice Damn, we can help. Give us a call at 781-834-7707.

Preventing Dryer Vent Fires

1/4/2023 (Permalink)

More than 15,000 fires are sparked every year by clothes dryers according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission. Lint and other debris can build up in your dryer vent, reducing airflow to the dryer, backing up dryer exhaust gases, creating a fire hazard.

Here are some of the signs that it's time to clean your vent:

  • Clothing does not dry completely after a normal drying cycle.
  • Drying time for clothing takes longer than 35 to 40 minutes in duration.
  • A musty odor is noticed in the clothing following the drying cycle.
  • Clothing seems unusually hot to the touch after a complete drying cycle.
  • The dryer vent hood flap does not properly open as it is designed to do during the operation of the dryer.
  • Debris is noticed within the outside dryer vent opening.
  • Excessive heat is noticed within the room in which the dryer is being operated.
  • Large amounts of lint accumulate in the lint trap for the dryer during operation.
  • A visible sign of lint and debris is noticed around the lint filter for the dryer.
  • Excessive odor is noticed from dryer sheets that are used during the drying cycle.

Clean your dryer vents regularly and keep an eye out for these signs in case you need a professional dryer vent cleaning to decrease your risk of fire.

If you do experience a fire, smoke, or soot damage call SERVPRO of Marshfield/Rockland at 781-834-7707.

Marshfield Residents: We Specialize in Flooded Basement Cleanup and Restoration!

11/3/2022 (Permalink)

A basement can flood at any time, although flooding most often occurs during heavy rainfall. Basements are inherently prone to flooding because they are the lowest level of a building and are normally built partly or entirely below ground level. There are a number of reasons why your Marshfield or Rockland basement could flood, including: 

  • A blocked or failed sewer lateral pipe
  • Heavy rain causes surface water to pool around your home
  • Storm sewer backup
  • Sanitary sewer backup
  • Foundation drainage failure
  • Water supply-line break or hot-water tank failure
  • And many more

If flood water is not handled quickly and properly, it can jeopardize your health and safety, and cause severe damage to your home’s structure. Remember, the longer you wait, the worse the problem will get.

The bottom line: a flooded basement can jeopardize your health, safety, and your home’s integrity.

Commercial Water Damage Tips

9/22/2022 (Permalink)

Water damage can be a threat to commercial buildings. It's not just a threat to the safety of the occupants, but it's also a threat the finances of the owners.

In Marshfield, Rockland, and surrounding towns that means water damage can affect plenty of medical buildings, professional buildings, restaurants, hotels, and small businesses. In times of severe flooding or plumbing failure this damage could even stop your business from daily tasks, which means you are losing money!

Preventative Measures

In the office there are some things you can do to minimize the risk of damage due to water leaks. For example, educate your office managers on water damage preparedness. This means that your managers should know how to turn off the water, electric, and gas supply. If they don’t have access, then they should know who to call in order to have these items completed. It’s also a good idea to have some basic tools in the office so that they are readily available in the event of an emergency. Lastly, it’s important to have a list of emergency contact phone numbers for all employees, as well as local fire and police numbers, so that in the worst case the loved ones of those injured can be notified, and they can get medical attention if needed.


Just as with residential structures, rapid response is critical to water damage in an office. The longer you wait before the area is restored the more of a chance you there is that you will have mold, which is another problem altogether.

The best course of action is:

  1. Call a plumber to fix the source of the loss;
  2. Call SERVPRO of Marshfield/Rockland to remediate the damage.

Of course, you can call your insurance first, but remember, we are also experts at the insurance side of damages as well, and can help you get the best coverage, so you can call us to work with your insurance as well.
