Understanding The Fire and Smoke Damage Process as it Pertains to Your Massachusetts Property
When it comes to fire and smoke damage and the eventual restoration of your contents and property In Massachusetts, there is a lot to consider including understanding that fire damage is destructive, but the damage smoke can levy on your property, even in places far from the area directly affected by the fire itself, can be equally, if not more, catastrophic. As smoke settles to property surfaces, even in far off unseen places, the process of pitting, etching, burning, and corrosion starts to unfurl. Making matters worse is any humidity and moisture present in the environment. When the humidity and smoke particles react with one another, further, more permanent damage occurs. When it comes to ash, the elements present in wood ash are quite inert and on their own in powder form don’t present any serious danger to material surfaces, however, when mixed with water, chemical changes create a toxic matter that can be extremely harmful to surfaces of all types. Chemical etching poses serious risk to material surfaces, and even simple morning dew and minimal condensation on ash is enough to start the chemical process down the road to damage. Timing is of the essence when it comes to fire and smoke damage restoration as the damage continues to increase as the hours and days pass after the event. When you partner with SOS Rescue Restoration, you can rest easy knowing you have chosen one of the region’s most experienced and accredited fire and smoke damage restoration experts. We can help you make critical decisions when it comes to replace or restore evaluations, communicate with your loss adjuster, navigate the insurance claims process, and understand how decisions you make now as it pertains to the cleanup and recovery process may influence future rebuild choices, and more.
To Restore or Replace, That is The Question
One of the biggest challenges in the aftermath of any fire or smoke damage event is the decision to either restore an item to it’s pre-loss condition if possible, or replace it if not. SOS Rescue Restoration can help you understand what the limits of restoration are for each item, whether it’s useful life has been degraded, and whether just replacing the item is the best course of action based on an analysis of the replacement value and the cost to restore. Some items are irreplaceable, in those cases SOS Rescue Restoration can advise on the best way to restore and salvage the item to bring it as close as possible to it’s pre-loss condition. We can also help you communicate these options and choices to your insurance company representative.
Smoke Odor Removal and Soot Damage Cleanup at Your Massachusetts Home or Business
Often overlooked is the damage done by smoke and soot. Smoke doesn’t only discolor and impact surfaces in the form of soot, but can also permeate in the form of smoke odor throughout even the most remote areas of your building structures, even those areas you simply can’t physically get to or see. Specialized equipment is necessary to deodorize your property to ensure that pesky smoke odor doesn’t persist. We use ozone and Hydroxyl machines to deodorize and remove the smoke particles and odors from your property. These machines also remove many other harmful viruses, bacteria and other particles from the environment that may be there from any humidity, water application during the event, and plain old lack of hygiene in the aftermath of vacancy.
