Is my home safe after a fire? 

Fires can affect the structural integrity of your Bridgewater home as well as producing potential accident causing debris. It is crucial to wait for a fire marshall's approval before re-entering your home after a house fire. Once you gain re-entry to the home, it may be safer to avoid the affected area altogether. By arranging a call-out from a professional fire technician, you can ensure that your home returns to its safe, preloss condition without incidents or accidents. SERVPRO technicians can scope the building, remove any fire debris, and potential hazards like faulty electrical equipment or wiring from home safely. If there is a power outage, we can work using portable generators initially until electricity returns. 

Can I arrange fire restoration and remain in the property?

When fire damage affects your Bridgewater home, it can become an inconvenience, especially when essential rooms like bathrooms and kitchens are fire victims. SERVPRO technicians organize our restoration strategy around you to ensure that you can continue with your everyday life during the process.

If fire damage affects your kitchen or bathroom, our team can first work on these areas to ensure that you keep access to essential areas of the home. Any areas that require longer-term restoration use physical barriers as well as plastic sheeting for containment. During aggressive restoration activities, our team can deploy negative air-pressure to the affected area to prevent debris and dust from spreading. 

How can I prevent soots and smoke residues from spreading? 

  • Cover any surfaces using old sheets
  • Avoid unnecessary foot traffic in the affected area
  • Use negative air pressure to ensure any air-borne specks of dust do not escape the area
