Combustible Materials Cause Haverhill House Fire
If you don't believe the warnings that combustible materials should not be left in direct sunlight, think again. When this homeowner took a break from staining his deck, he left the rags in the open container of stain, in the direct sun. When the toxic chemicals heated up, the rags ignited causing a fire on the deck and extensive smoke damage throughout the first and second floor.
Once the fire was contained, SERVPRO of Danvers/Ipswich crews began the meticulous job of mitigating the fire and smoke damage, cleaning the interior from ceilings to floors, and subcontracting the rebuild of the deck where the source of the fire occurred.
Every fire damage situation is a little different and requires a unique solution, but the general process stays the same. When various materials burn, the soot they create differs greatly and requires a specific cleaning procedure. The steps listed below illustrate our process for the “typical” fire damage restoration.
