Fire Debris Removal in Salem Homes  

Emergency services in mitigation strategies can vary from one property to the next after fire losses occur. Determining what your home needs is a factor labeled during the job scoping phase in most cases. Specific pre-mitigation tasks, such as board up and roof tarping, can directly impact the time and overall money spent on restoration. The most direct cause and effect relationship is fire debris removal, which can reduce the concentrations of soot particles and smoke odors throughout the property.

Fire Damage Cleanup for Salem 

With the cold winters that New England states can often endure each year, your furnace's proper function is vital. Combustions in the ignition chamber of oil furnaces can lead to a concentrated blast of soot throughout the entire air duct network and the connected rooms. We specialize in the removal of soot and smoke residues.

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.

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)

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

We clean and sanitize the restorable items and structures damaged by the fire. Our professionals use a variety of cleaning techniques to restore your belongings to pre-fire condition. We’re also trained to remove odors using industrial air scrubbers and fogging equipment.

Step 7: Restoration

Restoration is the process or restoring your home or business to its pre-fire condition. Restoration may involve relatively minor repairs, such as replacing drywall and painting, or it could include significant reconstruction of entire rooms.
