Building Services From Start to Finish From damaged homes to desired results!

Here at SERVPRO of Milton/Braintree we are committed to making the rebuilding process for our customers as simple and organized as possible. After the removal of the effects from water, fire, or smoke damage, our Reconstruction team steps in to finish the job; leaving your home or business in the condition it was prior to the incident. This means it will seem “Like it never even happened.”

Our Reconstruction Project Manager (RPM) will take the lead on handling any of your construction needs, from rebuilding your home or business to its original condition, to installing any and all remodels and upgrades that you, the customer, request.

As construction begins the RPM will work closely with you and your insurance adjuster to guarantee the highest level of satisfaction and most time-efficient execution of any and all construction requirements and needs. Our service will start with replacing the home or business back to its original condition, but also allow for any changes or upgrades to the property at your request. We will communicate directly with you to inform you of the coverage to be expected from the insurance agency, and then offer you a range of options from professional and effective contractors from all trades to remodel your property. This will afford you the opportunity to make any alterations to your property that you desire during the reconstruction phase. This will save you time and money on any of those home or business improvements you may have been putting off!  

The reconstruction process is one that may seem intimidating to many homeowners and/or business owners, but we at SERVPRO of Milton/Braintree assure you that this is our specialty. Our mission is to leave you with the home and/or business you recognized before any damages, as well as to remove any stress or strain associated with handling a construction project on your own. Our services will allow you time to consider any remodel upgrades without the hassle of juggling contractors and insurance adjuster requests and needs.

The RPM will be in contact with you daily to keep you apprised of the job schedule and progress as well as take the time to sit with you and discuss your options. It is important to us that you can trust and rely on us during construction. Our RPM is always available to speak with you, either over the phone, via email, or in person, at your request.

We at SERVPRO of Milton/Braintree hope that you choose the experts at emergency restoration to complete any and all jobs with our Reconstruction division.  Please visit our website, follow us on Facebook, call our main office, or reach out directly to our Reconstruction Project Manager at: 617.842.8793.

 Thank you for giving SERVPRO of Milton/Braintree the opportunity to make any damages to your home or business seem “Like it never even happened.”

Blown-in Insulation Removal

Blown-in Insulation Removal – Disaster Situations

In many disaster situations, you need to have the insulation removed from your house.  When disaster strikes, often times, the insulation has suffered water damage in addition to your more noticeable possessions. Wet insulation can promote the growth of mold which exposes compromised residents to potential health risks.

 

Blown in Insulation Removal – Animal Infestation

Rodents, birds and bats can also compromise your insulation. In some cases, rats, raccoons and mice can chew through the insulation, preventing it from working properly. Rodent, bat and bird droppings in the attic or under sub-flooring also have the potential to spread contaminants and diseases inside the house.

 

Blown in Insulation Removal – Old Insulation

If your insulation was installed 20 or more years ago, it will be far thinner than insulation installed today, and may not have the standard R-value (the measure of the insulation’s thermal performance) necessary for today’s homes.

Why it’s important to clean your air ducts?

Building Services Why it’s important to clean your air ducts? Before and after of an air filter from a duct cleaning job.

Cleaning you air ducts is an important part of maintaining good air quality.  A typical home will generate and average of 40 pounds of dust each year.  In the Milton and Braintree area we have our windows closed for a good part of the year because of the cold temperatures, helping keep that dust inside our homes.  When it gets warm out, its pollen season, and this pollen can find its way inside our homes and HVAC systems.

While dirty ducts don’t necessarily mean unhealthy air in your home, school or workplace, they may be harboring contaminants that could cause problems for people with respiratory health conditions, autoimmune disorders or some environmental allergies.

Dirt and debris trapped in your HVAC system should also be removed not only for the quality of the indoor air, but for the efficiency of the system itself as a system with cleaner ducts will perform more efficiently.

It is also important to clean your air ducts if your house or workplace has been affected by fire, smoke, soot or mold.  Any of these conditions may have affected air ducts as soot, smoke and mold spores can be airborne and end up in the duct system.

Having your heating and air conditioning system cleaned and replacing your systems filters with high quality filters can make a huge difference in the quality of the air that is circulating in your home.
