SERVPRO has been helping Nantucket homeowners for decades with fire loss restoration

Garage fires can get out of control quickly, particularly when flammable substances get stored incorrectly. However, the number one cause of most fires in this area of the home happens due to the overloading of electrical outlets and malfunctions. Because of the lack of monitoring in many garages, the fire tends to burn longer and have more opportunity to spread. It is vital to bring in a professional mitigation company to ensure that soot and smoke residues get eradicated.

Can Fire Damage Spread to From the Garage to Other Areas of the Home?
When this attached garage in Nantucket had fire damage, SERVPRO techs found extensive charring and smoke damage on the walls and ceiling. Containment through the use of heavy plastic over doorways leading to the home is a beneficial method to halt the spread of soot and odors to the rest of the house.

Cleanup and Controlled Demo
Charred items that have no potential for restoration through cleaning get removed for disposal. Technicians needed to remove the plywood and sheetrock around the area of the fire epicenter, exposing the framework. Specific cleaning agents get used for removing the remaining smoke residues to ready the garage for repairs.

Odor Control is a Must
The techs have a diverse selection of scent neutralizing applications depending on the level of odor control needed.

With their general construction license #CS-108357, SERVPRO techs make it easy to go from restoration to rebuilding as soon as the cleanup completes. This enables life to get back to normal even faster.
