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.

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!

The Unique Needs of Commercial Business

Imagine you are a Dry Cleaning Business located in a strip mall location. Your business model is to keep other peoples clothes clean. With business booking you decide to do an expansion of your services and a mall sends in a crew to help you with the build out.

Things seem to be running smooth. You are still able to provide service to your clients and the build out is happening on the over night shift. What could go wrong?

Well, a lot. Next thing you know, the fire department is calling you at 1:30 am and it appears old wiring has triggered a fire.

This is just what happened to Marshfield's locally owned Dry Cleaner/Franchise Operator, Kim Wilkinson. Fortunately, we were her first call!
