Inspections Determine the Salvageability of Fire Damage in Falmouth Properties

Our technicians first arrive at fire-damaged stores and inspect the building for several possible damages. It is vital to scope out the fire's impact on individual construction elements to get mitigation and restoration actions started quickly. Fire, smoke, and related threats affect porous materials with:

  • Odors
  • Soot
  • Smoke Residues
  • Water Damage

Can the Material Be Wet Cleaned?

The term washable refers to the ability of responding technicians to overcome fire damage in Falmouth shops using chemical products in our inventory. Wet cleaners are often the type to dissolve or emulsify soils on the surface to wipe them away, but all affected services cannot withstand added moisture. Washable contents and building materials make salvageability more affordable and manageable without requiring replacement or intricate off-site cleaning. 

What Dry Cleaning Methods Exist?

Dry cleaning is when no added moisture is used to overcome soot deposits on surfaces. Typically, equipment from our inventory, like chemical sponges, is used to remove loose debris in cleaning these structural elements. Dry smoke damage is often removed using dry cleaning approaches.

Demolition and Repairs of Non-Salvageable Structure

The affected building materials of your store can also show too much damage for cleaning and restoration services to be effective. We rely on our General Contractor License #: CS-108357

to perform controlled demolition and necessary repairs in these cases. We offer a wealth of build-back services to overcome the reconstruction needs of commercial properties and get your shop back open as soon as possible.

Fires affect several surfaces in your shop differently. While some will require dry cleaning approaches like chemical sponges to remove residues, others will need more complex wet cleaning solutions using potent chemicals from our inventory. However, our SERVPRO of Upper Cape Cod and The Islands team can help, we are ready to get you back in business when you call (508) 888-5985.
