New Year, New Storms
The year of 2021 was full of storms all over the United States. Our teams were busy away and at home between serving our fellow SERVPRO franchises in Houston, TX. following the freeze, to helping out our local community with storm damage due to the ever changing New England weather.
It’s no secret to us that this year will be no different. As cold fronts and rainstorms continue to make their way across our region, our team also continues to be prepared for when disaster strikes. Though we always wish our community a happy, healthy, and safe New Year, we know that accidents happen, which is why we’re here.
If this new year welcomes you in with damage caused by storms, you can call our team at SERVPRO of Dartmouth/New Bedford to make sure it doesn’t ruin the rest of your year. We’ll be right by your side helping you, from mitigation to restoration to reconstruction!

This is why when you call SERVPRO of Dartmouth/New Bedford, our team will be readily available to expertly assist you in your disaster.

Trust Us For Deordorization
In our experience, smells are narrowed down to two basic categories, good smells and bad smells. Good smells are the ones that comes from candles, essential oils, perfumes, and our favorite foods. Bad smells, on the other hand, can come from anything such as smoke, urine and feces, rodent droppings, or worse, rodent decay, or even worse, human decay, or even worse than that…
Okay, you get it. Things that smells bad, smell… well, bad!
And sometimes you need an extra nose to know where the smell is actually coming from. Thankfully, the technicians at SERVPRO of Dartmouth/New Bedford can help. Not only can we confirm if the smell you’re smelling is a very bad, no good, smelly smell. We can also help remove the odor with our advanced technological equipment such as air scrubbers, thermal foggers, and deodorization agents.
Not only does this help remove powerful odors, but these machines also help us remove airborne contaminants and control the air quality in a given room.
If something smells… smelly, give us at SERVPRO of Dartmouth/New Bedford a call, and we’ll see if we can sniff it out for you. As always, we’re Here to Help.
Freeze and Heat
There’s nothing quite like winter in the south coast. Although the snow and freezing temps force us indoors, it's a great time to get cozy by the fire surrounded by friends and loved ones. After all, if it gets too cold, you can always turn up the heat.
While your intention may have been to escape the cold, did you know that the holiday season is the peak time for residential fires? With holiday gatherings, more time spent at home cooking, and increased use of fireplaces, these scenarios increase your risk of your home catching fire.
At SERVPRO of Dartmouth/New Bedford, our crews are able to handle any kind of disaster no matter the weather. While these are never fun, they don’t have to ruin a special south coast season. If you find yourself escaping the cold but heading from the freeze into the fire, call SERVPRO of Dartmouth/New Bedford to ensure fires don’t ruin your winter season.
November Is Fire Season
Did you know that November not only kicks off the holiday season, but it’s also the start of fire season?
That’s right. With the holidays coming in full swing, and cooking dinners and gatherings become regularly scheduled events in our calendars, it’s also the time when our fire fighters are most often called. Cooking fires are the leading cause of house fires — and this is especially in part because of all the holiday cooking that takes place. From amateur turkey chefs to distracted cooking to candles and Christmas trees and decorations catching on fire, there are plenty of ways a home can catch on fire during this season.
While these situations can be traumatizing and life altering moments to the homeowners, the technicians at SERVPRO of Dartmouth / New Bedford are trained to look for what we can restore rather than replace. Trained to see what is salvageable in the scraps, our crews’ mission is to put back the pieces of your home or property and make it “Like it never even happened.”
Too Much Heat
Winter is the season for locking up the windows and keeping in all the warm air. Or in many cases, cranking up the heat because the air is too cold to bear.
It’s no secret that during the winter months, in an attempt to escape the harsh and bitter cold, most people leave their space heaters running all hours of the day — whether they are home or not.
While that’s a great way to ensure your home is always hot, hot hot, it’s also a great way to increase your risk of an electrical fire. Space heaters, like any other type of heat source, need to be vigilantly monitored. Neglecting your space heater can put you at big risk for a fire. Make sure to regularly monitor your unit to ensure the only thing it’s warming up is the air in your home.
It would be pretty ironic if a space heater were to put you out in the cold due to a home fire. Which is why we at SERVPRO of Dartmouth / New Bedford hope this leaves you aware of the potential dangers a space heater, if not closely monitored, can cause.
While we are not heating professionals, our technicians are thoroughly trained to deal with fire and smoke damage restoration. Call our office for a free estimate, and 24/7 emergency board up services.
Have You Cleaned Your Air Ducts Lately?
Recently, our techs were called to the rescue at a local veterinarian’s office. Thankfully it was not for a biohazard case! But what they saw was a true crime: dusty air ducts. Because of the nature of the business, pet dander and fur contributed to the excess amount of dust trapped in the vents.
We’re glad they called SERVPRO of Dartmouth / New Bedford to handle the clean up and get the vents looking brand —or, you know, “Like it never even happened.” Our techs walked out of that office breathing better and cleaner for the fur babies that walk in.
In additional to air duct cleaning, SERVPRO of Dartmouth / New Bedford also offers carpet cleaning and tile stripping services for our commercial clients, outside of our disaster restoration services.

Documentation Restoration - We Do That Too
Ever think of what happens to the important documentation in a home or office that suffers of a disaster?
Well, we do! Which is why in addition to disaster restoration services, we also offer document restoration services! In the event of a disaster it’s likely important documents, photos, and even yearbooks are damaged. If they’re not kept in a fire and waterproof safe or filing cabinet, these materials are subjected to the same elements as your home or office when a disaster strikes, such as water damage.
While one my think those documents will never be restored to their original, preloss condition, SERVPRO of Dartmouth / New Bedford thinks otherwise. By utilizing vacuum freezing techniques, IICRC certified and HIPPA compliant technicians are able to restore water-damaged documentation. Basically making it, “Like it never even happened.”
Hopefully you’re never in a situation where you would need to utilize any of our disaster restoration services, but if you are, you can rest assured we got you covered and we are Here to Help.
