The secondary damage of a fire can be more severe than the damage caused by the flames that engulfed your Lynn property. If left unattended for an extended period, your valuable items may get damaged beyond repair. Professional restoration within 48 hours minimizes or prevents further damage.

When is the best time to contact the restorers?

After the firefighters extinguish the flames, do not waste time. Contact our restorers immediately to handle fire damage in your Lynn property. We respond fast to our customer's emergency calls and begin the inspection and fire cleanup process. Our highly skilled restorers always aim to get our customers' homes to their preloss state as fast as possible. SERVPRO is a leading fire restoration firm. Some of the things we do when restoring fire-damaged homes include:

  • Comprehensive odor removal
  • Soot and smoke cleanup
  • Water damage restoration

How can you protect my home and its contents?

Our priority during fire damage restoration is to secure the building. We can board up all openings to secure your property from intruders and extreme weather. Our restorers can use plywood enforced by two-by-fours to board up any openings. We can separate the salvageable contents from those damaged beyond repair. The content restoration team can take care of your rugs, furniture, among other possessions, for maximum recovery.  

How do you remove smoke and odor?

Soot and smoke residues can reach just about anywhere, including inside ductwork and walls that look unharmed. The smoke even makes its way into stereos, appliances, computers, among other electronics. If not removed on time using advanced cleaning solutions and techniques, smoke residue can corrode metal surfaces and stain porous surfaces. Our technicians can use cleaners like stain scrub to clean high gloss surfaces and stainless appliances. 

Immediate odor removal is essential since odor-causing compounds penetrate surfaces deeply, making it difficult to remove them. If you attempt to handle the process yourself, you can force the compounds deeper into the surface. Our technicians can employ several procedures involving multiple professional equipment and products to eliminate odors. For instance, if there are lingering odors on carpeting and upholstery, our SERVPRO team can use a pump and injection needled to inject small amounts of deodorant into confined spots. This odor removal method is effective in situations where restorers cannot lift the carpet easily to get to the backing material or padding. 

Fire damage can be devastating, primarily, if not handled on time. Contact SERVPRO of Lynn / Lynnfield, to restore your property "Like it never even happened." Talk to us today at (781) 593-6663.
