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
