How Do I Get Rid of this Soot and Fire Damage?

11/6/2023 (Permalink)

At SERVPRO, our goal is to restore your belongings, home or business to it’s pre-fire condition. Depending on the amount of damage and its severity, our SERVPRO experts must assess the needs of your property and find the most efficient clean up solution. But where do we begin? 

First, our highly qualified team locates smoke residue by inspecting the affected area. This inspection starts at the source of the fire. We then follow its path and trace the distance of the smoke throughout your property. Next, we identify the type of residue left behind. Depending on the type of fire, residues may be powdery or sticky.  Several types of residue may exist even within the same affected area. 

Additionally, the type of affected surface is identified. Our restorers will choose the best cleaning solution to address each type of residue based on the type of material affected.  Some examples include sheetrock, metal, plastic, wood, brick, cloth, granite, concrete, etc.   We carefully inspect each aspect of this process to ensure that your materials are preserved. Using wet and dry cleaning processes, we are then able to remove residue particles from your surfaces before carefully disposing of all cleaning waste used in the process. 

Each step of our Fire Restoration process is important to bring your property back to it’s preloss condition. Our detail-oriented team ensures that all of these steps are applied appropriately and that the most efficient methods are used to best ‘SERV’ you.
