Fires can happen anytime and without notice. If you have a fire that breaks out in your Malden home or business, it can be stressful to deal with the fallout and determine the best way to begin fire damage cleanup. DIY methods will often bring you more hassle than necessary, especially if you fail to address all smoke and soot odors adequately. Without proper soot residue and smoke remediation, you could have increased secondary damage and lingering malodors that create a constant reminder of the fire. SERVPRO wants area customers to know that we are here for all of your commercial and residential smoke and fire restoration needs. We offer long-lasting results and impeccable reconstruction to ensure your property is back in pre-fire condition.

24/7 availability matters for Malden residents

SERVPRO offers 24-hour restorations when you have fire damage in Malden. You can look to us for all restoration projects, including the moisture left from water that first responders use to put out the flames. We formulate a personalized plan for your fire restoration project to ensure everything is left “Like it never even happened.”

Why not go DIY for house fire cleanup?

In most situations, DIY fire restoration takes longer, especially if you are unsure how to start or handle every issue. SERVPRO offers IICRC-certified FSRT technicians to handle all the cleanup for you, never leaving any stone unturned. We can cut back on your restoration time and save you money overall. We also work with the mindset to restore versus replace so you can salvage as much as possible. Homeowners attempting DIY do not have the experience or methods to clean items properly, so they often throw them away.

After the Fire Gets Extinguished, Our Team Leaps into Action

SERVPRO is here to address businesses and fire damaged homes to give you peace of mind. We arrive fast to begin debris removal and address airborne threats, putting containment measures in place so that soils do not get tracked into areas outside the fire impact zone. The crew chief assigned to your project inspects and assesses damage to select the best equipment and processes to help the team reach their restoration goals.

Note: Until we arrive at your property, never enter your property unless the first responders on the scene tell you it is safe to do so. However, it is better to limit foot traffic to keep the tracking of soot residue to a minimum.

Our fire and smoke restoration technicians (FSRT) will be there to:

  • Wear personal protection equipment (PPE) for protection against debris, airborne particulates, and toxic residues. Our PPE consists of coveralls, boots, gloves, goggles, and respirators.
  • We thoroughly assess the building to ensure stability and safety, including joists, flooring, ceiling, stairwells, walls, etc.
  • The cleaning products and methods selected vary depending on soot saturation and materials burned. The composition of the fire and level of heat get factored in before we start cleaning.
  • Moisture inside your property gets handled with the help of drying equipment and extraction tools.

What Specialized Restoration Measures Does SERVPRO Take?

It is essential to know that no two fires are alike, so we adapt and adjust as needed to get the results you deserve. In many instances, our technicians will combine methods to restore your home or business, including your inventory and contents. This method may include:

  • Suspend and disperse –this gets used to help loosen soils on items that can withstand submersion in water and cleaning solutions.
  • Agitation is done with movement, cleaning products, or both to help loosen soils and wash them away. Some options include air or water pressures, sandblasting, rotating brushes, or wiping.
  • Chemical actions –this is where we use cleaning solutions following the ‘like dissolves like’ methodology. For example, water-based soiling will get water-based solutions.

Call SERVPRO of Malden/Melrose when you require assistance with fire damage. We can be reached 24/7 at (781) 665-6396.

Skilled Mold Remediation with SERVPRO in Malden Generates Reliable Results

6/3/2022 (Permalink)

tech wiping mold off ceiling trim Malden property owners trust SERVPRO to remediate mold damage.

Before you know it, a black mold infestation can turn into a significant issue within any Malden home or business. Mold growth may begin due to various causes, including a leaking roof from storms, failed water removal services, plumbing issues like burst pipes, and more. Should you suspect, mold or mildew growing inside your property, calling in the help of skilled professionals for a thorough assessment is the best way to get started. SERVPRO is locally-owned and operated, and we are quick to arrive so that you can get on track for a cleaner, disinfected home or business. We’re Faster To Any Size Disaster.

Why Not go DIY for Mold Damage in Malden?

Hiring trained, experienced professionals are the best course of action. One is that DIY alone could worsen the problem or not provide expected results. These are a few essential things to remember when it comes to mold remediation:

  • Microscopic mold spores are everywhere, and there are countless types of mold in our environment.
  • Given the right temperature, a rise in moisture levels, and an organic food source like wood, paper, drywall, etc., mold can thrive and colonize.
  • Proper mitigation and mold cleanup are imperative, or they could damage your building, contents, and critical structural elements.

Be Wary when you Hear Claims for Mold Removal

Any product or company offering total mold removal is offering false claims. While you can ensure safe, effective cleaning on surfaces and belongings to remove mold colonies, complete eradication is impossible. It is better to have skilled technicians like our IICRC-certified crew at SERVPRO to tackle the job. We not only come in for thorough cleaning and deodorization, but we also pinpoint the root cause. Fixing the cause of the moisture issue is imperative because failing to do so means that the mold can come right back.

SERVPRO Provides Proven Methods and Industrial-grade Equipment

We arrive at your property with a full selection of EPA-registered antimicrobials, cleaning solutions, and advanced equipment with any mold cleanup call we receive. We determine and monitor all moisture levels, both surface level and sub-surface. Our team works on a detailed mold remediation plan that includes moisture extraction, mold contamination cleanup, and drying. Some of the steps that we follow include:

  • A thorough assessment of your mold development. This scoping involves containing the spores to keep them from moving into unaffected areas of your Malden property with the help of negative pressure and poly sheeting.
  • Humidity control measures help us to halt mold growth. This effort may get done using water extraction with strategically placed dehumidifiers and drying equipment.
  • After the mold impact zone gets dried, our team starts cleanup efforts with the help of vacuums and air scrubbers with HEPA filtration to capture tiny particles.
  • Each surface then gets detailed cleaning with antimicrobials and disinfectants to eliminate musty odor development and the possibility of future mold growth.

What Happens to Building Materials that are Mold Damaged?

If the mold damage or moisture saturation is severe, we may have to perform controlled demolition to remove and replace some materials. Whatever we deem unsalvageable gets extracted and then disposed of according to local guidelines. This may include carpeting, drywall, trim, flooring, and contents that became fully infested with mold. Trusted area contractors and vendors carry all the work for a finishing touch, “Like it never even happened.”

Mold damage cleanup and restoration are services we do best at SERVPRO of Malden/Melrose. Call us at (781) 665-6396 to mobilize a crew to your door when you need it.

Fire Damage Repair in Malden is Easier with Experts 

Fires in homes can be catastrophic and devastating. The biggest challenge is replacing damaged structures and contents and repairing the property to its normal condition. SERVPRO can help you recover from the disaster.

The goal of fire damage restoration in Malden homes is to thoroughly clean and repair all the affected areas. Much of the fire damage restoration concentrates on eliminating the persistent smoke smells and the accompanying residual water and soot. Taking action helps minimize loss and damage. Here are the steps we can take to deal with fire and smoke damage in your home:

  • Inspection
  • Debris removal
  • Cleanup
  • Deodorization
  • Repairs

Inspection

Fire damage restoration often goes beyond the surface. For instance, your floors might appear fine to the naked eye, but the fire might have weakened the support beams. Covering up such an issue can lower your property’s value or lead to expensive repairs in the future. SERVPRO’s proper inspection ensures that the repair work is thorough.

Debris Removal

Our SERVPRO fire restoration crew can remove debris, including charred materials like furnishings, ceiling tiles, and rugs. Removing trash from a fire-damaged home also mitigates the odors by eliminating burned waste, microscopic dust particles, and soot deposits.

Cleanup

Our SERVPRO crew can use different cleaning techniques and equipment to eliminate smoke residues from affected surfaces like walls and ceilings. Soot removal can minimize the likelihood of permanent discoloration and prevent replacement costs.

Deodorization

Our team can use thermal fog deodorizers to counter the odors a fire leaves behind. These are a blend of odor counteractants, aromatic phenolics, and fragrances in a solvent base. We use a thermal fogger to apply them and allow a reaction period from thirty minutes to overnight to allow the fog to penetrate materials and eliminate smoke smells.

Repairs

We can repair or replace damaged building materials and complete many restoration services to ensure your home is in its preloss condition.

SERVPRO of Malden / Melrose has the specialized fire repair knowledge required to restore your property to its normal state. Our 24-hour emergency helpline is (781) 665-6396. We’re Faster To Any Size Disaster.

Water Damage Repair in Malden Homes Requires Expertise

Home experts usually say that water always wins because it can easily get through even small cracks. Therefore, water damage might go undetected for weeks or months, leading to structural damage like wood rot and mold growth on porous materials like drywall. 

The key to effective water damage repair in your Malden residence is seeking help quickly from an experienced restoration firm like SERVPRO. We can send a remediation team immediately after we receive your call. Our water damage technicians can handle water damage of any severity. As part of the restoration process, we can assist you in documenting the damage for your insurer. Our water damage repair services include:

  • Mapping moisture 
  • Water extraction 
  • Structural drying 
  • Contents cleaning 

Mapping Moisture

Our SERVPRO technicians can inspect the damaged area to determine the loss using non-penetrating or penetrating moisture meters. 

Water Extraction 

Residual water can contribute to further damage, including mold infestation and deterioration of porous materials. Our crew can use portable pumps to extract it.

Structural Drying 

We customize each drying plan to return the affected area to its preloss state using proven industry techniques. Our SERVPRO team can remove porous materials from the site and dispose of them properly. We can place air movers and dehumidifiers in your home to expedite drying. We often use refrigerant dehumidifiers at the start of the job when humidity in the building is high. We use desiccant dehumidifiers when porous materials are dry, but structural materials are still damp. We can leave the water damage remediation equipment on site for a few days. We can check in to conduct moisture readings or adjust equipment. 

Contents Cleaning 

After water damage, many items may require cleaning. Our SERVPRO team can evaluate all contents exposed to high humidity or water for cleaning needs. We can clean and polish wood furniture that has been exposed to high humidity. We can also check clothing, closets, and storage areas for items that need cleaning and deodorizing. 

When water damage strikes your property, call SERVPRO of Malden / Melrose at (781) 665-6396 for help. We can make the water intrusion seem “Like it never even happened.”

SERVPRO Can Counter Mold Damage in Your Melrose House

The air contains mold spores, and they only grow when they get the right conditions of nutrients, moderate temperatures, and moisture. Mold can grow anywhere on furnishings and interior surfaces of a building, eventually causing damage to the materials.

Allowing the mold to grow and spread in your house can cause physical damage to the structure of the building and the contents found within. You need to contact SERVPRO to counter the mold damage in your Melrose residence. We offer a swift and cost-effective remediation process. Our mold damage restoration process involves steps like repairing the water problem, isolating the contaminated area, and dust suppression.

We categorize the damages into:

  • Damage to the structural components and the building materials.
  • Damage to personal property.
  • Damage to ventilation and heating systems.

Mold feeds on organic matter and breaks it down, which might lead to serious structural damage. Therefore, our SERVPRO team can remove infested walls, paper backing, insulation, carpeting, and other materials. We pretest all the affected materials to determine what we can restore and what to dispose of, with close adherence to EPA rules.

We can use disposable wipes to clean non-porous moldy surfaces and scrub them using detergent solutions. Our SERVPRO team can also use air movers and desiccant dehumidifiers to dry the indoors. In a desiccant dehumidifier, moist air gets into the process air inlets and passes through a rotor full of a silica gel substance, which attracts water. The gel is a drying agent, and it captures water from the air, causing the air to dry.

Upon attachment to porous materials, mold becomes very hard to remove or clean off, so we dispose of the affected materials. Mold can also enter the ventilation and heating systems which are usually hard to access for cleaning and inspection. Our SERVPRO team can thoroughly clean the HVAC systems to prevent the transfer of the spores to other areas.

Letting mold remain in your home for a long time is escalating a problem requiring swift action. Contact SERVPRO of Malden / Melrose at (781)665-6396 for effective restoration.

Storm Flood Damage Must Get Addressed Safely in Malden

SERVPRO logo Flood damage must be addressed safely. SERVPRO storm damage restoration specialists are here to help. Call now!

SERVPRO’s Disaster Response Team Helps Malden Residents with Flood Damage

During a significant storm front that brings wind and heavy rain, your Malden property could be susceptible to flooding. This contaminated floodwater coming into your home calls for safe removal that DIY methods alone cannot achieve. SERVPRO offers a rapid response to water damage and flooding from storm events, ensuring you have a team at-the-ready. Emergency response 24/7 with skilled water restoration technicians is the best way to return your home to pre-flood condition.

What makes storm flood damage in Malden unique compared to interior water damage? Outside floodwater infiltrating your building can bring many contaminants, including bacteria, chemicals, silt, and debris. SERVPRO works to assess the flooded portion of your home with precision to identify and eliminate all safety hazards. This includes putting containment measures and signage in place, followed by the entire crew wearing personal protective equipment (PPE).

Measures we take with flooding events:

  • We carry specialized disinfectants to spray on any affected areas where floodwater touches. 
  • Standing silt, debris, and water get removed with truck-mounted extractors. In some situations, we may utilize shovels and rakes to get up the bulk of the contaminated matter.
  • Our team goes through your interior to identify what contents can go through the decontamination, cleaning, and restoration phases. Restoration generally depends on the porosity of each item, as porous items cannot be safely disinfected and require disposal. 

What About Damaged Building Materials and Structural Elements

Any structural components touched but not damaged by contaminated water can go through the pressure washing process. We also clean surfaces using powerful disinfectants. However, any materials deemed unsalvageable will get replaced during the controlled demolition/reconstruction phase. All of this work gets carried out by trusted local contractors that we partner with if needed.

SERVPRO of Malden/Melrose has you covered when you need someone to help with storm flood damage. Call us at (781) 665-6396 for emergency service. We’re Faster to Any Size Disaster.
