Full Restoration of Fire Damage in Northampton Home

When there is fire damage to a property, it is vital that it has professional mitigation as soon as possible. The longer odor-causing soot remains on surfaces, the more it spreads and permeates porous objects.

Our SERVPRO location handled a fire damage remediation in Northampton for a house with both water and smoke damage over half the property. When we arrived on-site, we contained the entryways and registers in each of the affected rooms to stop any further spread of soot.  

We used portable pumps and extractors to remove the remaining water. Then our technicians used controlled demolition techniques to remove the charred sheetrock and contents too damaged by fire to restore. Our goal is to limit loss for homeowners by restoring the structure and contents through our proprietary methods whenever possible. This commitment to service is why we go methodically through rooms to determine the restorability potential for items.

After the completion of debris removal, we turned our attention to soot removal. Using both portable and hand vacs both with HEPA filtration, we cleaned the residue from the floors, surfaces and ceilings.

Soot particles range from large enough to see to microscopic. We use air scrubbers with HEPA filters to cleanse the affected areas of lingering soot by capturing these odor-causing particulates.

Even after removing charred items, ventilation and cleaning with HEPA filtration, a pungent odor often remains after fire damage, and masking and covering up does not work. We have equipment such as ozone machines or hydroxyl generators that remove fire odors at the molecular level.

Another odor control method we use is thermal fogging. Our technician used an odor-neutralizing heated solvent delivered as a fog. The fog is used to penetrate every place the smoke permeated to remove deeply seated odors thoroughly. In many cases, the combination of multiple methods of odor removal is necessary to eradicate all smoke odor.
