The Highlands, MA Fire Damage Cleanup and Restoration

Hundreds of different sources can cause fires, we as leading fire restoration professionals, have seen multiple scenarios that impacted properties in The Highlands in different ways. Our reliable response 24/7 has helped us to ensure that mitigation and other emergency services get started as soon as possible when every minute counts. With both restoration technicians and a division of building contractors, we can offer a comprehensive approach to the work that your home requires after a destructive fire.

Removing Soot Damage from The Highlands Homes  

One of the most significant obstacles for responding technicians at a recently extinguished fire is soot and smoke particles coating surfaces and contents in the building. While smaller fires can keep these particles and odors contained to the ignition source's immediate area, situations like furnace puff backs introduce soot throughout the entire household through the air duct network. We have strategies for localized soot damage and widespread concerns alike. Some of the most common cleaning approaches we utilize include:

  • Dry vacuuming
  • Abrasive cleaning
  • Solvent cleaning
  • Controlled demolition

Smoke Odor Removal Tools for Homes in The Highlands

 There are multiple strategies for removing harsh odors left behind after a fire gets extinguished. Deodorization is among the last phases of restoration for our technicians. Smaller odor concerns can often be addressed with the mobile thermal Fogger units in our inventory, while greater effects can be neutralized with larger hydroxyl generators.

Our Fire Restoration Process

Every fire damage event is a little different and requires a unique solution, but the general process stays the same. The steps listed below illustrate our process for the “typical” fire damage emergency.

Step 1: Emergency Contact

The fire restoration process begins when you call us. Our consultant will guide you through the crisis and may ask several questions to help us better understand the type of fire damage you experienced, determining the equipment and resources needed.

Step 2: Inspection and Fire Damage Assessment

We carefully inspect and test adjoining rooms of your property to determine the extent of the fire, smoke, and soot damage. This step is crucial to developing a plan of action.

Step 3: Immediate Board-Up and Roof-Tarp Service (if needed)

In many fire damage cases, it’s necessary to board up missing windows and walls and to place tarps on a damaged roof. This helps to maintain security and to protect against further damage. 

Step 4: Water Removal and Drying (if water damage is present)

The water removal process begins almost immediately and removes the majority of the water. We then use dehumidifiers and air movers to remove the remaining water and complete the drying process. 

Step 5: Removal of Smoke and Soot from All Surfaces

We use specialized equipment and techniques to remove smoke and soot from ceilings, walls, and other surfaces. 

Step 6: Cleaning and Sanitizing

Any restorable items will be cleaned and sanitized. We’ll use a variety of specialized cleaning techniques to restore your belongings to pre-fire condition. Our professionals will also remove smoke and other odors using advanced air scrubbing equipment and fogging devices with deodorizers.

Step 7: Restoration

Restoration is the final step—getting your home or business to its pre-fire condition. Restoration may involve minor repairs, such as replacing drywall, painting, and installing new carpet; or it may entail major repairs such as the reconstruction of various areas or rooms in a home or business.
