Any size fire leaves significant damage to your home, and you need to act as quickly as possible so that you can minimize the loss. If you wait too long after the fire gets extinguished before cleanup begins, you are left with pungent lingering odors. Additionally, the water used to extinguish the fire poses a potential hazard to materials in your home and possible mold growth.

Debris throughout your home, along with airborne threats, can hinder restoration and makes DIY methods nearly impossible. We can perform a walkthrough assessment of your home once it is deemed safe to record conditions and identify the best steps to proceed. We also bring advanced tools and equipment that allow us to get rid of stubborn residue from soot and smoke. Early mitigation helps cut back on the severity of the damage as well as the potential for long-lasting, hazardous effects.

What Cleaning Methods are Used to Restore My Interior?
SERVPRO is trained to formulate a plan that best suits the unique fire loss situation at hand. We perform an assessment, and technicians are instructed on each step to provide you with the best results.

    •    Wet Cleaning: is done to address hard surfaces that are not easily damaged by water. Technicians may use a combination of water and specialized cleaning agents to strip away smoke and soot residue, leaving the surface clean and refreshed. If necessary, we also have ultrasonic cleaning machines that use ultrasonic waves that pass through an aqueous solution made up of mild detergent, softener, and water. High-frequency sound waves create pressure that results in millions of bubbles to loosen grime.
    •    Dry Cleaning: is done to clean items that may become damaged when they come into contact with water, which includes electronics, antiques, and books. In some cases, our skilled technicians carefully use sponges, brushes, and towels to loosen soot and residue from your belongings.
