Fire & Water - Cleanup & Restoration

It's The Water Damage For Me - Lakeville 02347

Do you know what causes the most damage after a fire?

You’d be surprised to learn that it’s not actually the fire and smoke that causes the most damage, but the water damage that comes from trying to put the fire out. 

While the fire could have been caused by an electrical issue, or while cooking, when the fire is extinguished, the water that was used to put it out is still there; soaking and seeping through the walls and flooring. In the restoration process, this needs to be addressed first. 

When the crews at SERVPRO of Marion / Middleborough begin the restoration process after a fire, we always ensure that the structure is completely dried first. This includes setting up specialized air movers, dehumidifiers, and VELOs to speed up the drying process.

Neglecting to properly dry out residential or commercial spaces exposes the building to secondary water damage such as mold growth, the loss of personal items, and structural damage. This can lead to even greater issues down the line like black mold and even replacements of certain parts of the home or office.

When a fire occurs, the most important thing is making sure everyone is out safely and the fire is put out. The next step is to get the water out and completely dry out the space.

Once those critical needs are addressed, we can move forward with restoring your home or office after the damage caused by the fire. This includes cleaning up smoke and soot damage, removing odors, and of course, making it, “Like it never even happened.”

For proper fire and water damage restoration, call SERVPRO of Marion / Middleborough 508-946-2397.
