Schools out, so are the renters.

The rain on the coast has finally stopped and the neighborhood is drying out. Speaking of drying out, the college kids are moving out, and as you can imagine; dorms, apartments and other personal and commercial property needs to be cleaned up swiftly and properly.

Property damage this time of year is crucial, parents don’t want big surprise bills for outrageous clean up and disposal. Property owners want to be able to turn over their property as quickly as possible.

The little fire that Junior started with the hot plate and hastily extinguished, isn’t cleaned up properly ~ unless you’ve already called a professional. Smoke damage can be undetectable until at the end of the year you find your painted walls and surfaces a different color and you just can’t find where that hideous smell is coming from.

That’s Protein Fire Residue, it’s caused by the gases in the smoke. Junior isn’t fooling anybody. SERVPRO comes in quickly, assesses and remedies the damage - we can even check for mold under the carpet while we’re there. 

SERVPRO offers 24/7 restoration services to customers experiencing difficulties with water, fire, smoke, or mold damage! We are always readily available to take care of any emergency restoration needs in a timely and professional manner possible to restore any property to pre-damage conditions and quickly make your property ready to rent again!

A culinary fire and a burned ego!

Recently we had a quick little culinary fire, lucky for us it was a dessert and only my ego was injured.

Home fires often are devastation and cannot be traced to human error. All you know is everything is burnt, and it stinks!

After the fire quick assessments need to be made about the structural and physical damage.

Professional clean up is a must. There are different types of smoke damage.

  • Wet Smoke, caused by plastic and rubber.
  • Dry Smoke, caused by paper and wood.
  • Protein Fire Residue, caused by evaporation of materials in the heat of the fire.

The latter is virtually undetectable aside from the unbearable odor it leaves behind. SERVPRO is your local South Shore, reliable source for clean ups. Residential and commercial, we’ll take care of all!

Summer Shack Backyard Showers

5/29/2017 (Permalink)

Backyard showers and old timey bathrooms in cottages are hot spots for moisture buildup. We have plenty of crooked floors and leaky pipes on the south coast of Massachusetts!

Being the vigilant pilgrims that we are, oftentimes we fix it ourselves, moving rocks around and caulking bathroom fixtures. While it may satisfy our need to homestead, more often you need professional help.

The outdoor shower still leaks and frankly has probably damaged the shingles beyond help. We can always hope moisture and mold hasn't built up too much behind the bathtub. The very best thing you can do to keep your cottage ready for weekend fun and money-making rentals is to call SERVPRO.

Do you own a property in Eastern Massachusetts along the coast? Are you concerned about water damage and mold? Call SERVPRO, we are the fastest and most reliable, locally owned and operated clean up service in Eastern Massachusetts.

Call us today and get your Summer Shack back in tip top money making shape!
