Park Hill Meeting House Cleaning
The Park Hill Meeting House is located in Westmoreland, NH and was built in 1764.
Recently, our SERVPRO of Cheshire County Team was contacted by a board member from the Park Hill Meeting House as the building was in need of professional cleaning services. The Park Hill Meeting House, located in Westmoreland, NH, was built in 1764, and is an example of Federal and Greek Revival style of architecture. The building has been moved twice since being built and has been significantly altered because of the moves.
With multiple events and occasions coming up this summer and later in the year, the representatives of the Park Hill Meeting House decided it was a good time to reach out to our team to provide a thorough cleaning throughout the building. Services included carpet cleaning, floor cleaning, vacuuming of flat surfaces, cleaning of bathrooms, kitchen, and other common areas, to name a few.
It was an honor for our team to work in such a historic building. We appreciate the opportunity to help spruce up this incredible southwestern New Hampshire landmark.
Fire/Smoke Restoration: The Most Thorough Cleaning Available!
SERVPRO of Cheshire County uses industry leading methods and specially formulated products made to battle the heaviest smoke damage.
Cleaning and restoration following a fire or smoke damage can be challenging. SERVPRO of Cheshire County uses a multi-step approach when cleaning heavy smoke. The SERVPRO Team first performs a dry-cleaning method to remove the majority of oily smoke residue from a given surface. This is followed by a wet cleaning performed by our technicians using SERVPRO's own specially formulated cleaning products. This is performed on most hard surfaces such as wood, metal, marble, and porcelain to name a few. Why is this important? If wet cleaning was performed prior to dry cleaning when attacking harmful soot, it is very likely that the process will spread the residue and smudge the surface. By using basic, over-the-counter products, that are not made specifically for handling soot, there is a high risk that it will stain thus making it more difficult, or impossible, to completely remove. If you experience a fire or smoke damage to your home or commercial property, contact the professionals at SERVPRO of Cheshire County to be sure you are getting the most advanced cleaning methods, by industry certified technicians, who use only products created specifically for fire and smoke damage restoration.

30 Years in Westmoreland!
2023 marks 30 years at our Westmoreland, NH location!
SERVPRO of Cheshire County has been providing Southwestern New Hampshire with industry-leading cleanup and restoration services since the late 1970s. When the franchise was taken over by the Paul Family, SERVPRO of Cheshire County shared a building with a local dog groomer on Court Street in Keene, NH. Having quickly outgrown the current location, Owner Richard Paul decided to move the business across town to Water Street. It wasn't long before the growing business outgrew the Water Street location and Paul was looking elsewhere for a larger building and a new location which would better accommodate the company's growing client base in Southern Vermont. What Paul found was a large red industrial building which would fulfill both needs. The decision was made in 1993 that SERVPRO of Cheshire County would be moving to Westmoreland, NH.
The location was great. Just off NH Route 12 with tremendous visibility, only 10 minutes outside of Keene, and easy access to Vermont, especially Interstate 91 which is a main north-south corridor within SERVPRO's Vermont territory. The building's space was a huge upgrade as well. SERVPRO was increasing personnel, equipment, cleaning products, and vehicles which the new space would better necessitate. The property required a lot of landscaping, tree removal and sprucing up. The building interior went through changes as well including small renovations, remodeling, and reconfiguring. This was all being done as SERVPRO continued to provide services to its clients.
It took a lot of hard work and patience, but the move to the new location in Westmoreland was just what the company needed. The business continued to grow and expand. Now with Ryan and Derek Paul at the helm, a satellite location has been added in Ascutney, VT to better serve the Vermont market. That move 30 years ago was an integral part of the success of SERVPRO of Cheshire County, and we look forward to what the future holds!

In this recent project, our team was contacted by one of our clients to carry out a top-to-bottom cleaning at their long-haul transport facility's extensive garage area. Over time, as their trucks are being serviced and are constantly entering and exiting the building, exhaust dust and debris accumulates on a variety of surfaces in the garage area. Our clients knew exactly how wo contact for this type of project.
Our skilled team, while working off of lifts, ladders and movable stairs, went through the affected areas and carried out an extensive cleaning, using similar methods and products that would be used following a fire or smoke damage. Our technicians used HEPA filtered vacuums and dense dry-cleaning sponges to remove the heaviest layers of debris and followed up with a more detailed wet cleaning in specific areas of the garage. The process not only removed heavy debris, but also helped to deodorize the area.

SERVPRO of Cheshire County: The team that is faster to any size disaster!
Winter in New England can bring a multitude of surprises and challenges when it comes to weather. Snow, slush, sleet, ice, and of course, frigid temperatures.
Last weekend, parts across New England experienced some of the most bone chilling temps in recent memory. Beginning Friday night and culminating into Saturday morning, temperatures reached negative digits. When the windchill was factored in, depending on the location, temperatures reached -20, -30, -40, and in some places even -50 degrees Fahrenheit. Now that is cold! On top of Mount Washington, the windchill pushed the temp to over -100 degrees. Incredible!
These frigid temps and high winds led to power outages and an extremely high quantity of frozen pipes throughout our team's coverage area. SERVPRO of Cheshire County received over 100 service calls due to burst pipes in the week following this extreme freeze event. Our team has been incredible with responding and providing service to as many of our customers as possible without sacrificing quality or professionalism. We want to extend a big thank you to our clients who have been patient and understanding during this event as we continue onward. Lastly, we want to give a heartfelt thank you to our dedicated crew for their hard work for the past week. We're grateful to have such an amazing team here at SERVPRO of Cheshire County!
