Our team was called in to help restore a multi-unit apartment building in Worcester, MA. The property sustained significant fire damage to the first-floor apartment. The units on the 2nd and 3rd floors, as well as the common areas, suffered smoke damage from the fire. The property manager trusted the experts at ServiceMaster Dynamic Cleaning to get the residents back in their homes quickly.
Our technicians jumped into action, performing fire damage restoration services. More often than not, fire damaged homes also include water damage from the efforts to put out the fire. Because of this, the first floor and the basement required water damage restoration and mold remediation. Mold can begin to grow in as little as 24 hours after a water loss. Unfortunately, organizing the building's multiple tenants delayed the property manager in calling our restoration team in. However, the project manager and crew chief were well equipped to handle the job as they are all certified and specially trained to handle fire, water, and mold remediation. Dying equipment was set up in the basement to begin drying the structure. The first-floor unit required the removal of charred, soot crusted building materials like drywall and flooring. Once removed, the underlying structures were cleaned and sanitized. The 2nd and 3rd-floor remediation included cleaning and deodorizing the smoke damage.
