SERVPRO Does Not Leave Anything to Chance When Restoring Suffern Properties After Fires

If you have never endured a fire incident, you may have a wrong or inaccurate idea of the damage left in your Suffern home. It is a significant disadvantage since you cannot prepare or execute the restoration correctly if you have the wrong information.

One reason for seeking help with fire damage restoration at your Suffern home is to ensure nothing is left to chance. Restoration technicians from SERVPRO undergo training from the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification, IICRC, so they can quickly identify the type of intervention necessary at your property.

Typical restoration tasks needed after a fire include:

  • Textile cleaning
  • Duct cleaning
  • Reconstruction
  • Deodorization

Most textiles are highly vulnerable to heat and flames action, which destroy. They are also affected by residues such as soot which soil them deeply or cause staining. Therefore, textile restoration mainly involves cleaning and removing stains. Our SERVPRO technicians can help you habilitate upholstery, carpets, rugs, and draperies.

Soot and other smoke residues find a way into all house sections, including the air ducts. If not cleaned, the system can keep recirculating residues or foul odor in your house. Cleaning the system and replacing some accessories such as filters resolves this. Our SERVPRO technicians section off the supply and return line of the HVAC system. Then we use negative air pressure systems such as vacuums to extract the soils. Rotary brushes are also helpful in dislodging soils.

Fire leaves structural areas such as walls and ceilings destroyed. Removing the deteriorated materials and replacing them with similar materials is essential. SERVPRO can handle such reconstruction directly or supervise local tradesmen to do it. We also deodorize the property to remove smoke odor or any traces of odorous cleaning products. 

Deodorization procedures vary from

  • Ventilating the house with strong air movers
  • Dry fogging with solvent 
  • Applying water-based odor counteractants
