Mitigating Fire Damage Calls for the Help of Skilled Professionals in Teaneck

3/10/2020 (Permalink)

"Fire" Your fire damage needs SERVPRO’s tools and reliability.

Our Fire Damage Experts are Trained in Fire & Smoke Restoration, Odor Control, Upholstery and Fabric Cleaning

The fallout of a fire in your home sends smoke and soot circulating throughout the structure. Once this residue comes into contact with cooler surface areas, such as your belongings and building materials, it adheres and causes damage. Unfortunately, this residue flows through cabinets, ceilings, and walls in your home, making it difficult to remove without the help of trained professionals with restoration skills and experience.

When you call the SERVPRO team in for help with fire damage in Teaneck, we get to work by assessing your interior. This allows us to determine the best and most efficient way to clean your home to free it from sticky smoke and soot residue. We often start by dry or wet cleaning of the ceilings and walls, followed by other structural components that require cleaning and restoration.

Kitchen Restoration

Many house fires start inside the kitchen, so our technicians work to remove soot residue from countertops and cabinets. We use techniques based on the materials and finishes throughout the space. Finished cabinets are addressed with a cloth and water-based detergents. Cabinets and drawers with unfinished wood interiors are cleaned with dry methods, such as a dry sponge or dusting. SERVPRO technicians remove all cabinet and drawer hardware to reach any areas where residues may have gotten trapped.

Lighting and Fixtures

As part of the restoration process, we remove lighting fixtures for proper cleaning. If you have specialty lighting fixtures, such as chandeliers, SERVPRO technicians use careful steaming or hand-cleaning techniques. 

Attics and Crawl Spaces

Smoke and soot may also travel into crawlspaces and attics. We make sure we never leave any space unchecked, including unfinished wood or insulation in these small spaces. Instead of costly cleaning of your insulation, our technicians may suggest removing the first 3 to 4 inches and replacing it with new insulation.

Never leave soot and smoke residue lingering throughout your home after you suffer from fire damage. SERVPRO of Teaneck/Englewood is here to ensure your interior is back to normal fast so that you can enjoy it once again. Call (201) 266-0482, and we will deploy a team promptly to begin an assessment.
