Bedroom Blaze Leaves Fire Damage Cleanup Challenge In East Bridgewater Home

Candles set the mood in a room, have a pleasant fragrance, and have the potential to cause significant fire damage. The speed at which the cleanup and restoration of fire loss begin can increase the number of items saved.

SERVPRO technicians worked on fire damage in the bedroom of an East Bridgewater home caused by a candle to get it ready for rebuilding. After containing the affected area, our technicians moved out the charred window treatments, mattress and bed frame as the longer they remain on the property, the more soot and odor they have the potential to spread.

The carpet was deemed a fire loss by the adjuster and required removal but was too heavy to move as it retained water. We extracted the water from extinguishing the fire from the carpet and cut it into strips for easy removal. We needed to perform controlled demotion to remove the charred sheetrock. We photographed, cataloged, and removed items in the room that had the potential for restoration to another area for cleaning and odor control.

As the bedroom was dried, we deployed air scrubbers to remove airborne soot particles. Once dry, we wiped down and disinfected the surfaces. These actions go a long way towards lowering odors left by the fire, but to rebuild, full removal of all offensive odors must occur.

We used a combination of an ozone machine which neutralizes odors at the molecular level and thermal fogging, which delivers a heated solvent that moves through the room the same way as the smoke did. Once we removed the odors, the room was ready for rebuilding. Our technicians gave the homeowner and adjuster a list of the tasks completed for mitigation as well as the repairs needed to return the bedroom to its preloss condition.
