Services Involved in Most Fire Damage Cleanups
When you home or business has a fire, you call a disaster restoration company. But what many people don’t know is there are many steps that have to be taken before your property can be restored to its preloss condition.
When you call a fire department to put out a fire, they unleash a ton of water on your property. As a result, when we deal with fire cleanup, we generally also have to perform water mitigation services.
Whether it’s from the fire damage or the water damage, your possessions are likely either damaged or need to be removed for the duration of our services. Fortunately, our team is experienced and can pack out and store your possessions until they are restored and can be taken back.
Smoke and soot particles become lodged in your HVAC system after a fire. This can not only cause your system to overwork, it makes it virtually unusable. That’s why we perform duct cleaning services in most fire cleanup services.
The smell of smoke is unmistakable in a fire-damaged home, almost to the point of being nauseating. Unfortunately, this odor is engrained into the structure because particles become embedded in porous materials, such as walls. In order to make it “Like it never even happened,” we perform odor-removing services.
Perhaps the most obvious part of the process, our technicians perform specialized cleaning techniques to remove soot and clean damaged belongings. Except in extreme cases, our team is highly capable of cleaning most fire-damaged properties.
As you can see, the fire cleanup process is complex and has a lot of moving parts. Fortunately, SERVPRO of Catawba County East has years of experience restoring fire-damaged properties. If your home or commercial building has a fire, call us at (828) 465-6504!
