Saugus, MA Fire Damage Cleanup and Restoration
A Fast Response to Fire-Damaged Saugus Homes
Damages to your Saugus home might be unavoidable when a fire forms inside the structure. Depending on the fuels available and the atmospheric conditions, you can contend with a wide range of potential cleanup and repairs. Because fire losses are unique from one site to the next, our experienced Fire & Smoke Restoration Technicians (FSRT) must tailor our response and restoration plan to your home. Our fast response post-fire can reduce the spread of hazardous contaminants like soot particles and noxious smoke odors.
Soot Removal Strategies for Your Home
Soot remains one of the most hazardous products of a structure fire, primarily because it is a microscopic carcinogen that can be harmful to those exposed without the appropriate personal protective equipment. Because of this, we have multiple strategies for contending with this threat, beginning with effective filtration of the open spaces. Using tools like air scrubbers and hydroxyl generators, we can pull ‘dirty’ air through HEPA filters onboard these machines to provide a cleaner environment. Surface soot removal strategies include:
- Abrasive cleaning
- Soda blasting
- Controlled demolition
Protecting Properties with Experienced Build Back
While many homes depend on our fast response, we must also consider the impact that nearby fires can have on our historic landmarks like the Saugus Town Hall or the Saugus Ironworks National Historic Site. From exterior cleaning strategies to our roster of general contractors for demolition and reconstruction, we can make it “Like it never even happened.”

Our Fire Restoration Process
Every fire damage event is a little different and requires a unique solution, but the general process stays the same. The steps listed below illustrate our process for the “typical” fire damage emergency.
Step 1: Emergency Contact
We are available 24 hours, 7 days a week. When you call, one of our representatives will ask a series of questions about the fire damage to your home or business. This information helps us respond immediately with all the needed equipment and resources.
Step 2: Inspection and Fire Damage Assessment
We determine the scope of the fire and smoke damage by examining the affected areas and by testing the adjoining rooms for smoke and soot damage. An accurate assessment is crucial to the planning process.
Step 3: Immediate Board-Up and Roof-Tarp Service (if needed)
In many fire damage cases, it’s necessary to board up missing windows and walls and to place tarps on a damaged roof. This helps to maintain security and to protect against further damage.
Step 4: Water Removal and Drying (if water damage is present)
The water removal process begins almost immediately and removes the majority of the water. We then use dehumidifiers and air movers to remove the remaining water and complete the drying process.
Step 5: Removal of Smoke and Soot from All Surfaces
Your property’s ceiling, walls, floors, and other surfaces will likely have smoke and soot residue. We’ll use specialized cleaning products, equipment, and techniques to properly clean your home or business.
Step 6: Cleaning and Sanitizing
Any restorable items will be cleaned and sanitized. We’ll use a variety of specialized cleaning techniques to restore your belongings to pre-fire condition. Our professionals will also remove smoke and other odors using advanced air scrubbing equipment and fogging devices with deodorizers.
Step 7: Restoration
Restoration is the final step—getting your home or business to its pre-fire condition. Restoration may involve minor repairs, such as replacing drywall, painting, and installing new carpet; or it may entail major repairs such as the reconstruction of various areas or rooms in a home or business.
