Teamwork Boosts SERVPRO's Fire Restoration

When a home in Lynn burns, firefighters, work together to put the fire out as quickly as possible. They use teamwork, practice, and experienced, to extinguish the flames and regain control of the damaged areas. SERVPRO carries out fire restoration in a very similar way, using teamwork.

Relying on each other's strengths, SERVPRO's technicians work methodically, performing fire restoration tasks inside Lynn area residences. Each aspect of fire damage requires a specialized response:

  • Burnt materials and possessions,
  • Soot that formed from incomplete combustion of materials,
  • Elevated water in solid materials and moisture in the air, and odor.

Fire destroys a lot of what it touches. SERVPRO's crew takes an inventory of these items and then bags them. Then the team can carry them outside your home so your family can get a fresh start.

Smoke from burning walls, carpets, and anything else happens because some of these items disintegrate as they burn, and the heat carries these tiny pieces of wood, plastic, cloth, and so on into the air. We call this soot. It is greasy or dry, powdery or thick and clingy, depending on its source. We use special equipment to strip it from the surfaces throughout your house.

Fighting fire requires hundreds of gallons of water. When cold water hits hot, burning things, the steam goes everywhere. Moisture in this form travels far and wide, leaving areas of your home that do not require fire restoration in need of mold remediation and water mitigation. We handle both of these issues, starting with preventative measures.

Odor and strong, unpleasant smells come from burned plastics, soot, stagnant water, or a combination of those things. Much of the other work diminishes odor related to fire and smoke, but most homeowners continue to experience foul scents. We use thermal fogging, which is extremely effective at getting into the same places harboring soot particles. Without deconstructing these areas, we would never get to the hidden soot otherwise.

After a fire, call SERVPRO of Lynn / Lynnfield at (781) 214-3705 for fast, professional fire restoration work.
