SERVPRO Fire and Smoke Remediation Uses Proven Practices to Cleanup Teaneck Houses 

Fire restoration in Teaneck frequently involves a cooking mishap or other kitchen ignition. Kitchen fire and smoke damage also deposit tenacious, toxic, and malodorous residues on surfaces throughout your home. The coatings are protein-based, representing the dehydrated remains of foodstuffs and oils. They transform into a rancid, ill-smelling yet transparent film requiring professional skills and products for removal.

Otherwise, building materials will suffer progressive deterioration, the corrosive action of the smoke, and sooty debris destroying the comfort, function, and integrity of your home.

  • Implementation of residue removal strategies such as:
  • Use of oil-based solvents to emulsify the lacquer-like coating
  • Increased dwell time of the cleaning products to facilitate the breaking of the bond between surface and residue
  • Addition of abrasive materials to cleaning products to enhance the breakup of the soiling through agitation
  • Employment of rough-edged and surfaced tools (steel wool, scrapers, stiff-bristled brushes) to loosen residues
