Bedford, Mass. Residents: Trust Our Professional Fire Cleanup and Restoration Team
Following a house fire, you will have many important decisions to make. You may be in shock, and you may not know whom to trust.
Bedford, Mass. Fire Cleanup
SERVPRO of Lexington/Bedford has over 35 years of experience helping Bedford residents recover from the trauma of a house fire. Our personnel understand the flood of emotions associated with disaster, and we help homeowners understand their path forward through restoration and recovery.
Your first concern will be the safety of your family, pets, and property.
You will want to secure your home if the walls have been breached. Our fire restoration technicians begin by boarding up exterior walls to protect your property.
You need to be aware of the ongoing threat to your safety from ashes and soot particulates in the air. Burning materials release harmful chemicals that you and your loved ones should not breathe.
We will set up air filters to clean the air. If you are occupying part of the home, we will set up containment to keep the contamination confined and protect your health.
Soot particulates may have entered your HVAC ductwork. We will block off vents to the ducts to prevent further contamination.
Drying Your Property
Many fire damage jobs include extensive water damage as well. Water used to extinguish the flames will need to be removed before fire cleanup can begin.
Our water restoration technicians will assess the situation and develop a plan for drying the building in accordance with Institute for Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) standards. If you can get everything dry within three days, many of your belongings can be saved.
Evaluating Your Property
Some of your property will not be salvageable. Our experienced fire crews will advise you on what can restored and what should be discarded.
Your soft goods may require cleaning by a fire restoration dry cleaning company. Your electronic devices may require inspection and restoration by a certified electronics restorer. We will help you understand which items need a specialist and can refer you to our trusted partners.
Soot has a way of getting into every space in a building. Even the back corners of closed cabinets will be coated with an ugly, oily residue.
You need special, commercial cleaning compounds to remove soot without setting stains into fabrics and wallcoverings. You also need to be sure all odor causing molecules are removed from the building, otherwise you risk unpleasant aromas lingering for years.
Our crews will clean every surface in your home and on your salvageable contents. We are trained to remove every trace of residue and know where to look for hidden soot.
We will also apply state-of-the-art technology to find and neutralize odor-causing molecules lurking in your building materials.
And we will clean your HVAC ducts to prevent redistribution of the soot.
