South Peabody, MA Fire Damage Cleanup and Restoration
With elevated level of humidity common to the North Shore area, our South Peabody properties that become impacted by fires can produce wet smoke that is a devastating force to the structure. These thick smoke residues can lay on surfaces and contents, and their acidic nature can tarnish textures and finishes to require widespread tear-out and reconstruction for affected areas of the home. Our SERVPRO team has a growing roster of fire restoration technicians that can respond quickly to emergencies and better protect the property and its contents from post-fire effects.
Fire Mitigation Steps for South Peabody
Fire mitigation can describe multiple actions taken as soon as our technicians arrived to lessen the length of time and money invested in restoration. Mitigation is crucial for situations like oil furnace puff backs that leave soot residues in multiple rooms of the house and throughout the HVAC system ducts. Cleaning up these impacted areas prevents the furnace from circulating soot particles that can be hazardous to the occupants of the house and damage structural elements.
Fire Odor Removal in South Peabody Homes
Removing harsh odors from the property after a fire was incident is often one of the final obstacles necessary in restoration. From open-air threats to trapped smells in porous materials like drywall or carpeting, there are several tools and products involved in deodorization. Some of these include:
- Hydroxyl generators
- Ozone machines
- Odor counteractants

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 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)
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
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 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.
