How Our SERVPRO Team Handles Disasters in Fitchburg

With hundreds of thousands of residents sharing Worcester County, having a team of qualified and experienced professionals to help when disasters strike Fitchburg and other communities in our area is vital to protecting our customer's property and keeping their families safe. We know how readily situations like water, fire, storm, and mold losses can occur, and we keep a full roster of trained professionals to address these concerns swiftly and thoroughly. Additionally, we can offer solutions for biohazard cleanup, insulation abatement and removal, and advanced cleaning for homes and commercial properties.

The location of the entire state of Massachusetts leaves areas like Fitchburg prone to severe storm damages in every season of the year. We understand how quickly a strong storm system can become traumatic to properties, and strive to offer our customers the most comprehensive approach to recovery, beginning with a fast and confident response despite the conditions in the area. From Nor’easters to hurricane-like scenarios, homes and businesses can become quickly and thoroughly damaged within a short period.

With winter being such a particularly devastating time for storm damage and Fitchburg homes, our SERVPRO team must remain prepared with the tools and resources needed to overcome any situation, including freezing and power loss. We can offer temporary heating solutions for properties damaged by storms, or those that have suffered frozen pipes. It can be dangerous for your family to go without adequate warmth through certain times of the year, so our team ensures you have it while restoration and recovery work continues in the house.

Our restoration services can continue into offering temporary power solutions as well with portable generators for storm-damaged Fitchburg properties. Not only can this be instrumental in running mitigation and recovery equipment used in the house, but it can help to maintain heat, air conditioning, and lights when relocation is not necessary, and restoration persists.

Much of the award-winning service that we have offered to Fitchburg residents over the years stems from our commitment to provide customers with knowledgeable and helpful technicians in a crisis. This dedication to have skilled and well-trained technicians has encouraged the majority of our team to pursue acquiring their Water Restoration Technician (WRT) accreditation through the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC.) These certifications allow us to be the most readily prepared for water loss incidents that occur in the area, and we can dispatch experienced professionals in this niche of the restoration industry 24/7 from our facility.

Much of the work that we do during water damage in Fitchburg homes begins with establishing a moisture baseline and working all drying, extraction, and recovery efforts off of this goal. With an understanding of how quickly these loss incidents can get out of control, residents need a team that can arrive with powerful extraction and drying tools like our shaft-driven truck-mount pumps and heavy-duty dehumidification units.

Moisture detection tools and discovery devices help to monitor the success of drying efforts in your Fitchburg home through every phase of restoration. With our restoration over replacement mentality, we can arrive quickly in a crisis to protect your original construction materials and contents to prevent unnecessary reconstruction.

Mold damage in Fitchburg homes can occur from multiple sources, but this moisture and dampness present substantial risks to both the structural integrity of your property and those exposed to the active colonization. Considering the humidity levels that damage many homes and properties throughout all seasons of the year, there is no set time where your residence is less at risk for this potential microbial growth.

Basements and crawlspaces are particularly susceptible to mold growth and microbial threats. Fitchburg properties can struggle to ventilate these areas properly, and they are also less likely to get enough sunshine and traffic. Dark and damp are ideal conditions for the facilitation of mold colonies, which can spread quickly to threaten far more than the immediate materials and contents of the area.

We have IICRC-Certified Applied Microbial Remediation Technicians (AMRT) that can work to quickly identify the full spread of mold damage in Fitchburg homes and the best plan to overcome these effects. Our SERVPRO team has multiple approaches to remove active colonies, including soda (bicarbonate) and dry-ice pellet blasting, antimicrobial sprays, and controlled demolition techniques. We can meet the high expectations of industrial hygienists involved in helping clear homes, and especially commercial structures like clinics, dental offices, and hospitals after mold damage.

While all of the potential disasters that could affect Fitchburg homes can be traumatic and overwhelming in their unique way, fire loss incidents become multi-faceted threats. Not only can these situations present significant structural concerns, but there are additional effects that must get addressed as well, including deodorization, residue removal, content management, and debris removal. With no two disasters being exactly alike, our SERVPRO team must create a fire loss recovery plan tailored to your property and the damages that must get overcome.

Part of our success in recovering fire damage in Fitchburg homes begins with our commitment to having the best available equipment in the industry. From our industrial steamers that can help to thoroughly clean materials like tile and upholstery to our gas and electric fogging machines that are vital to deodorization efforts, we can approach each loss situation with confidence and the right tools to help.

We strive to offer Fitchburg residents a comprehensive and knowledgeable approach when contending with fire loss scenarios, and that is why our technicians have IICRC certifications in multiple areas, including:

-    Fire & Smoke Restoration (FSRT)
-    Upholstery & Fabric Cleaning (UFT)
-    Carpet Cleaning (CCT)
-    Odor Control (OCT)

We know how quickly your home and your family need a response when disaster strikes, and that is why our team of professionals, in every niche of the restoration industry, stay prepared 24/7 to help. Our SERVPRO of Fitchburg-Leominster team can make any loss incident “Like it never even happened.” We have a full roster of dedicated professionals with cutting-edge equipment to offer restoration services that can save you time and money.
