Is Debris Dangerous in Fire-Damaged Bridgewater Homes?  

Debris can be one of the formidable obstacles for our responding technicians. Mitigative actions are critical to protecting a property and its contents, and that begins with removing heaps of charred remnants and ash from the floors of the structure. We have cleaning technicians and contractors to manage the safe discarding of damaged and ruined contents and materials. With the debris removed, odors and soot particle concentrations reduce, and cleaning becomes more manageable.  

How Can House Fire Cleanup in Bridgewater Get Started? 

Cleaning up after a fire often focuses on the soot and smoke residues that can affix to walls and horizontal surfaces. Solvents and alkaline cleaners can reduce acidity and help with dissolving thick soils for easier wet cleaning. Dry damage can be dealt with using chemical sponges. 

Our Post-Fire Cleaning Can Involve Many Other Actions and Efforts as Well, Some of Which Include:

  • Smoke odor removal
  • Fire and smoke damage cleanup
  • Content relocation and cleaning
  • Carpet cleaning
  • Water removal services

Our Fire Restoration Process

Every fire damage event is a little different and requires a unique solution, but the general process stays the same. The steps listed below illustrate our process for the “typical” fire damage emergency.

Step 1: Emergency Contact

The fire restoration process begins when you call us. Our consultant will guide you through the crisis and may ask several questions to help us better understand the type of fire damage you experienced, determining the equipment and resources needed.

Step 2: Inspection and Fire Damage Assessment

We carefully inspect and test adjoining rooms of your property to determine the extent of the fire, smoke, and soot damage. This step is crucial to developing a plan of action.

Step 3: Immediate Board-Up and Roof-Tarp Service (if needed)

Fire damage can often compromise windows, walls, and roofs. To maintain security and to protect against further damage, we can board up missing windows and walls and place tarps on damaged roofs. 

Step 4: Water Removal and Drying (if water damage is present)

The water removal process begins almost immediately and removes the majority of the water. We then use dehumidifiers and air movers to remove the remaining water and complete the drying process. 

Step 5: Removal of Smoke and Soot from All Surfaces

We use specialized equipment and techniques to remove smoke and soot from ceilings, walls, and other surfaces. 

Step 6: Cleaning and Sanitizing

Any restorable items will be cleaned and sanitized. We’ll use a variety of specialized cleaning techniques to restore your belongings to pre-fire condition. Our professionals will also remove smoke and other odors using advanced air scrubbing equipment and fogging devices with deodorizers.

Step 7: Restoration

Restoration is the final step—getting your home or business to its pre-fire condition. Restoration may involve minor repairs, such as replacing drywall, painting, and installing new carpet; or it may entail major repairs such as the reconstruction of various areas or rooms in a home or business.
