Fire Damage in your Worcester home and How best to Handle It
Call SERVPRO for Smoke & Fire Restoration Services
Every time a fire starts inside a home, some level of fire damage occurs. Even if the fire stays in a small area, the smoke and soot quickly spreads through the air into other areas and creates soot damage very quickly. Those living in Worcester can cope with this problem affecting their living spaces best by having certified experts carry out the work involved.
Worcester homes affected by fire damage and soot accumulation need experienced mitigation experts. SERVPRO technicians have extensive training and become certified by the IICRC in fields such as Fire and Smoke Restoration (FSRT), Odor Control (OCT), and Applied Structural Drying (ASD).
Even small fire cleanup requires the skills learned in the pursuit of these three certificates, and our technicians continually keep these certificates up-to-date to serve you and your family better. Working together, they can quickly make it “Like it never even happened.”
Technicians skilled in fire and smoke restoration remove only the charred materials within a home and leave those areas that sustained only smoke damage for our cleaning technicians. Soot removal requires several steps. Items with extensive or elaborate detailing require a bit more work than items with smoother surfaces before attaining pre-fire condition. The use of "dry ice blasting" is used, if you have never herd of Ice Blasting, it is a method that can be utilized under specific conditions.
Our technicians with odor control management training help complete restoration by eliminating bad odors caused by deposits from the fire's smoke wherever they occur. By following air currents inside your home, our technician finds the locations of the most substantial deposits. Treatment of these areas renders odor-causing particles inert and unable to continue causing bad smells.
Elevated humidity can make odors from smoke even more pronounced, especially when the furnace runs or on unseasonably warm days. The water used to extinguish a small fire in our home soaks into absorbent materials and also evaporates as steam when making contact with the fire. Every home with fire damage also needs the moisture removed and completely dried out. This part of the process also helps guard against secondary water damage from developing in the not-so-distant future.
