Help With Clean Up After Fire Damage In Your Englewood Cliffs Home
Your Home's Fire & Smoke Damage Is Restored by SERVPRO Professionals
If your home has been damaged by fire, you likely find yourself facing some clean up tasks. Even after the fire has been contained and the building has been secured, there is still the job of cleaning and restoring your home and possessions as much as possible. While it is true that some items simply have to be discarded as non-salvageable, other items can be saved from soot and fire damage. It is likely that parts of the structure of your home itself may also need a thorough clean.
After fire damage in your Englewood Cliffs home, the thought of tackling the clean up can be daunting. Let our SERVPRO experts help you clean your home and possessions in Englewood Cliffs. Our IICRC certified professionals are fully trained in the various cleanup techniques needed to get the best results.
Every fire damage cleanup job is different. The techniques and products we use vary depending not only on the extent of the fire damage but the kind of materials involved too. Our professional technicians start by thoroughly assessing your home and belongings. We determine the type of smoke residue and how they coat elements and then decide on the most effective cleaning method for each item or area.
Some articles and materials can be saturated with cleaner, or even immersed in it. In those cases, we use the appropriate amount of cleaning products to penetrate the material and clean the smoke residue as thoroughly as possible. Using the incorrect amount of cleaner can damage materials and extend the drying time – that is why we professionally train our SERVPRO engineers to apply just the right amount of cleaner.
For surfaces and materials that aren’t fit for saturation, we use surface cleaning techniques. This can mean spraying cleaner on and then wiping it gently with a dry cloth or using a foam cleaner to cover the surface lightly. Fabrics and leather generally fall into this category of treatment. Surface cleaning makes it easier to control the exact amount of cleaning product, making it the best choice for more delicate surfaces. If a surface is too delicate to withstand cleaning spray or foam, our technicians use absorption techniques to trap and extract soot and odors gently.
Damage to belongings resulting from significant fires offers other means of restoration. Pack-out services provide a haven for your possessions while we clean the structure and also a workplace for cleaning at our facilities. We can utilize specialty cleaning machines such as the Esporta Washing System and also ultrasonic cleaning for hard surface elements.
