Flames The situation can feel quite overwhelming when your home and belongings are affected by fire damage. Contact SERVPRO for remediation services.

SERVPRO Handles the Cleaning of Your Lynnfield Home’s Contents Using Proven Fire Damage Restoration Techniques.

Fire is a destructive force that can leave behind thousands in damages, even if it only impacted one room of your home. When addressing the contents of your Lynnfield home, it is not always the case that everything is a total loss after a fire. SERVPRO features highly-skilled fire restoration technicians (FRT) ready to handle pack-outs and specialized contents cleaning services. We’re Faster to Any Size Disaster, giving us plenty of time to address soot and smoke damage before it has time to set in and create costly secondary damage. 

Why Do I Need Pack-Out Services?

Often, the fire damage restoration process in Lynnfield is more manageable when our crew carefully inventories, packs up, and transports items off-site for cleaning. This frees up space to allow our team the room necessary to address structural damages and debris. Not only that, but we also have specialized cleaning tools available at our facility to handle varying levels of fire damage from soot, smoke, and moisture left from the water or chemicals used to extinguish the blaze.

The way that we handle contents cleaning includes:

  • Appliances – Non-absorbent surfaces, such as metal, plastic, and glass, can get cleaned using water-based detergent solutions.
  • Books – The severity of the damage determines how we proceed when cleaning books. Light smoke residues are often handled with dry cleaning methods like brushing, compressed air, and vacuuming. Moderate or heavy residue calls for more aggressive measures, including alkaline surface cleaners or thermal fog deodorizing.
  • Upholstered Furniture – We always test materials before cleaning to select the right method for the job. Dry soils get cleaned first, followed by dry solvents to ensure no shrinkage, bleeding, or browning occurs.


SERVPRO of Lynn/Lynnfield is the team to call if you want help handling your contents during fire damage restoration. Call (781) 593-6663, and we can dispatch a crew 24/7 to get to work.
