Fire & Water - Cleanup & Restoration

Initial Post-Fire Obstacles for Restoring Melrose Homes

3/11/2022 (Permalink)

Building on Fire with Smoke Fires can be devastating. After ensuring your safety and the safety of your family, contact SERVPRO to inspect the property right away.

Pressing Loss Effects in Melrose Properties can Make Fire Damage Restoration Difficult. 

From the time our professionals are first notified of fire losses, our talented roster is mobile and active in mitigating the impact of damage effects and protecting the property. Fire and smoke damage can show in several ways throughout the house. Emergency services that we provide include: 

  • Debris cleanup
  • Content relocation
  • Controlled demolition
  • Water removal services

Structural Damages and Weakness

Fire damage restoration for Melrose homes can be made more difficult by degrading structural elements and physical damages to the property. Blistering of materials, for example, requires these affected surfaces to be removed and ultimately replaced. Pre-job scoping determines structural weaknesses and deterioration, including the need for controlled demolition. 

Water Damage from Extinguishment

Fire suppression can also create immediate obstacles to the fire restoration process. First responders lean on water from nearby hydrants to overcome active structure fires in many cases. While the water is clean, the high volume can create water damage and structural damage resulting from the spreading blaze. We help in many ways like:

  • Removing surface water
  • Material drying
  • Moisture monitoring

Air Quality Health Concerns

Post-fire recovery also means addressing the soot particles and smoke solids circulating in the environment. Because of their risky nature, these particles should be removed before property owners can return to the home after a severe house fire. We have HEPA 500 filtration equipment to trap particles as small as 0.3 microns. 

There are several pressing conditions in the house after a fire that must be addressed by our professionals. Early actions can help to streamline our restoration process and save the customers time and money. Our fast response to these emergencies allows us to mitigate loss quickly. We mobilize our Green Fleet at the first notice of loss. Give our SERVPRO of Malden / Melrose team a call today at (781) 665-6396.
