Performing Fire Damage Cleanup Can Prevent Destruction In Teaneck
Performing Fire Damage Cleanup In Your Teaneck Residence Can Prevent Severe Destruction
After firefighters have extinguished a fire, there is no time to waste. You need to begin the restoration process immediately to prevent future damage. SERVPRO fire restoration experts can assist you in restoring your residence after the unfortunate ordeal.
As you prepare to clean up your fire damaged Teaneck home, make sure it is safe to enter. Assess your property for smoldering spots that could ignite a fire. A fire that may have released asbestos fibers into the can air put your health in danger. Your local fire marshal can inform you if it is safe to enter your home to start the cleanup process. To know which cleanup tasks to perform, you should assess the damage. Common household materials react differently to flames, heat, and smoke.
Fiberglass and plastic
They turn yellow because of a chemical reaction that happens when they are too close to a fire. This is not something that you can wipe off, even with strong commercial cleaners.
Walls can get permanent stains if you do not clean them promptly and correctly. Improper cleaning can impact the residue, worsening the damage.
Appliances and metal fixtures can tarnish after a fire. If you do not clean them up properly, etching and corrosion can damage them permanently.
Carpets made of synthetic fibers may melt in extreme heat. If they do not melt, they can hold the unpleasant smoky scent for a long time. Removing the smell is difficult, and even commercial cleaners may be ineffective. Carpet fibers can also become discolored after a fire.
Glass can appear etched after a fire. Ash, heat, and smoke combine to ruin the chemical composition of glass.
It is often necessary to sand and refinish the surfaces of wood exposed to fire to eliminate soot. A majority of homeowners do not own heavy-duty sanders that can handle this restoration project.
Removing all traces of smoke and soot damage from your property is essential to make it habitable once more. Apart from the visible soot, affected areas may have an unmistakable smoke odor. It is impossible to cover up the smell with air fresheners or candles because it is buried in the fibers of carpeting, textiles, and household surfaces.
With our advanced equipment and cleaning products, we can salvage most of your items. Our SERVPRO team can use immersion cleaning to remove residues from affected household items like glasses, dishware, and chandeliers, which can withstand being saturated in cleaning products. Foul smells are irritating if not professionally eliminated. Our technicians can deodorize your home using equipment like the Electro-Gen Thermal Fogger from Legend Brands. We use it to ensure deep penetration of deodorizers to areas where cleaning cannot reach.
