Falmouth, MA Fire Damage Cleanup and Restoration

Efficient Fire Mitigation Approaches for Falmouth Properties

With all restoration and recovery efforts, there are initial actions possible to make the cleaning and recovery phases faster and less costly. Mitigation of fire damages can mean multiple efforts by our experienced restoration professionals, beginning as soon as our team first arrives at a damaged address. Emergency services include: 

  • Fire damaged homes
  • House fire clean up
  • Soot removal 
  • Content cleaning
  • Water removal services

Cleaning Soot and Smoke Damage in Falmouth Residences

After a fire damage disaster, cleaning up can often mean taking the necessary steps to remove soot and smoke residues from affected surfaces. Partial combustion can generate aerosolized solids that rest on or adhere to building materials and contents. We have solvents, alkaline cleaners, and aggressive cleaning tactics to help.

How Can Harsh Smoke Odors Be Removed from Falmouth Homes?

Smoke odors can be one of the final formidable obstacles to returning a home to its original condition. Aging properties in Martha’s Vineyard and similar areas are highly susceptible to this damage. We have deodorization practices to neutralize and sealing primers to trap odors within porous materials.

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

We are available 24 hours, 7 days a week. When you call, one of our representatives will ask a series of questions about the fire damage to your home or business. This information helps us respond immediately with all the needed equipment and resources.

Step 2: Inspection and Fire Damage Assessment

We determine the scope of the fire and smoke damage by examining the affected areas and by testing the adjoining rooms for smoke and soot damage. An accurate assessment is crucial to the planning process. 

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

Fire damage can often compromise windows, walls, and roofs. To maintain security and to protect against further damage, we can board up missing windows and walls and place tarps on damaged roofs. 

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

If needed, we can begin the water removal process with powerful pumps and extraction units. This removes most of the water. We complete the water removal and drying process with industrial-strength dehumidifiers and air movers. 

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.
