Fire Damage: What to Expect in the First 48 Hours
FIRE DAMAGE: WHAT TO EXPECT IN THE FIRST 48 HOURS
For any family living in South Shore, Massachusetts, a fire can be devastating. While many fires can cause mass destruction (or in some cases total destruction), other fires only cause minimal structural damage to a home. Fires do, however, fill up a house with a smoke smell and stains and fire, which can cause burn stains without contact. SERVPRO of Milton/Braintree can arrive on site and begin the process of cleaning up the mess. SERVPRO of Milton/Braintree can restore the inside and outside of the home by providing cosmetic cleanup services in a fraction of the time that a homeowner can perform the work. The key is to act fast and call SERVPRO of Milton/Braintree as soon as possible.

We will perform an inspection for the purpose of confirming what the fire destroyed. We can also determine the scope and amount of destruction caused to the house.
When the insurance adjuster arrives to perform his or her inspection of the damage, SERVPRO of Milton/Braintree can confirm the amount of work that will be required to restore the house.

CALL SERVPRO of Milton/Braintree IMMEDIATELY:
One of the worst things you can do in the first 48 hours is to delay calling a restoration company. Fire, like water, can cause massive damage that only worsens the longer it goes without repair. Processing insurance payments and scheduling repairs can take time. So you need to act quickly in order to protect and restore your home. If a fire breaks out in the kitchen or bathroom, there can also be water damage from leaking pipes. Your ability to begin the process of restoration in a timely manner can save you more money in further damage caused by outside elements, mold, and pest invasion.
