Living Room On Fire Handling fire damage without proper skills and equipment can be challenging.

Talk to SERVPRO Technicians in Falmouth to Handle the Fire Damage in Your Property.

Dealing with fire damage can be overwhelming to property owners. However, regardless of how far the damage has spread, professional restorers can help you bring your property back to its original state. SERVPRO professionals in Falmouth can handle fire damage using approved techniques and advanced equipment to restore your home safely.

How can I help with the restoration process?
Most property owners want to begin restoration and do everything they can to make it more efficient. However, using household cleaning agents can worsen fire damage in your Falmouth property. The cleaning agents and unprofessional restoration techniques can cause the soot and smoke residues to smear and seep deeper into affected materials.

It is best to let SERVPRO technicians handle the restoration process since we have the proper equipment, advanced products, and resources to restore the structures and contents of your house. However, you can help set aside contents that must be restored. That helps our restorers to be more efficient during recovery.

Which items should I carry with me?
We advise our customers to keep items with a high monetary value close to them at all times. They include contents such as:

    •    Credit cards, checkbooks, and cash
    •    Personal documents
    •    Medications
    •    Artwork

Can you remove the ash-like odor?
The ash-like odor can last for an extended period if not handled by professionals. Odors can linger in confined areas as well as other surfaces such as furniture. We can combine several deodorization techniques and products to eliminate the odor. Some of the products and devices we use to remove odors after fire damage include:

    •    Deodorant pellets or granules
    •    Odor counteracting beads
    •    Water-based odor counteracts
    •    Thermal foggers
    •    Hydroxyl machines

Is it okay to turn on my air conditioner?
We highly recommend our customers to leave the HVAC unit off until our technicians inspect and clean the system. Fire damage may affect the unit, and turning it on can spread smoke residues throughout the property. Our technicians can use augers, brushes, and air whips to agitate and remove soils from all parts of the ventilation.

Handling fire damage without proper skills and equipment can be challenging. Contact SERVPRO of Upper Cape Cod and The Islands at (508) 888-5985 for fast restoration services. We can make the fire loss seem, “Like it never even happened.”
