SERVPRO is Available 24/7 for the Upper Cape Cod Community for House Fire Clean Up

As the narrator of this video points out, the co-owner Beth Russell, fire damage in Upper Cape Cod properties is never a pleasant subject and even more so during the winter and in the holiday season. However, that is exactly what a local property owner found himself dealing with when he contacted SERVPRO for fire damage restoration services in his Upper Cape Cod summer home. As pointed out in the video, SERVPRO received a call on Christmas Day to mitigate a chimney fire. So the techs could begin the house fire cleanup immediately at the Upper Cape Cod property instead of making the homeowner wait until the next business day.

Boarding up the Home During Fire Restoration by SERVPRO

Fast action by the fire department saved the Upper Cape Cod structure. When SERVPRO technicians arrived for the fire damage restoration, they boarded up the property to keep unauthorized persons from entering the premises and to protect against inclement weather.

SERVPRO Lowered the Stress of the Upper Cape Cod Fire Damage Clean Restoration

The narrator in the video explained that since the property owner was outside of the Upper Cape Cod area, SERVPRO worked with the insurance adjuster to develop a plan of action within the scope of coverage during the fire and smoke damage restoration and cleanup. This attention to detail regarding the type of insurance policy for the property means that the work done by the SERVPRO techs on the Upper Cape Cod property is always within the scope of coverage.

Removal of Charred and Fire Damaged Materials and Articles in the Upper Cape Cod Property

Because the homeowner used the property as a summer home, and the fire damage to the house happened on Christmas Day, SERVPRO had more than the usual window of time to perform the fire damage restoration services. It is vital to take articles out that are too burned for fire and smoke damage cleanup in Upper Cape Cod properties. The SERVPRO techs set up areas to collect items for disposal so the process can get done in an orderly fashion. The technicians take great care of the things that require removal as non-restorable. A detailed description gets written along with photographs to assist with the insurance claim filing. 

After confirming the maximum amount of water has been removed left behind by the fire extinguishing efforts. The technicians work on cleaning as much of the smoke damage as possible in the Upper Cape Cod summer home. This is a methodical process that relies on experience, skill, and a large selection of proprietary cleaning agents that SERVPRO has available. 

Doing the Rebuild After the Fire Damage Restoration for the Upper Cape Cod Summer Home

The video also covers the fact that after the house fire clean-up performed by SERVPRO on the Upper Cape Cod property, the techs also handled the needed repairs and rebuilding to ready the property for use as a vacation getaway during the summer months in Upper Cape Cod. SERVPRO technicians can handle major reconstruction, repairing drywall removal during smoke damage cleanup, or fine details such as painting walls or installing baseboards.
