Restoring an Area with Fire Damage Protects Your Colonial Heights Home

8/26/2018 (Permalink)

Regardless of the size of the fire, proper remediation ensures that secondary damages and odors do not continue in your home.

SERVPRO Technicians Remediate Fire Damage Including Any Remaining Odors

A small fire caused by a charger for a cell phone or other electronic device can leave a terrible mess in your Colonial Heights home. These small-sized items can quickly overheat and their plastic components can melt, exposing interior parts. Small flames can easily catch surroundings on fire.
SERVPRO handles both large and small disasters, so mitigating fire damage in Colonial Heights from small electrical fires is the safest option for homeowners to choose. We can handle the mess and make things look like they did before, just “Like it never even happened.” We use special equipment to help us remove the damage, clean areas covered in soot from the fire, and deodorize when needed.
A crew of highly trained technicians carry any materials or furnishings that burned during the fire out of your home for disposal. We cut drywall in a manner that makes replacing the damaged area as simple and easy as possible. Damaged paneling also requires removal. We cut all of these materials into smaller pieces so we can bag them up with little risk of them ripping them. We also double our bags to increase their strength.
Sometimes, upholstered furniture also ends up wearing a coating of soot, but we can clean these items with the use of gentle brushes and a vacuum. More challenging pieces might require wet solutions to remove tougher deposits. We also clean wooden furniture pieces of soot deposits. Our cleaning technicians quickly clean up hard and non-porous items, like knick-knacks, hard plastic items that show no signs of melted areas or other damage, and any other locations or belongings where soot landed and clung to during the fire.
Any sized fire can create smelly spots in your house. We can send an Odor Control Technician (OCT) who can rapidly eliminate the scent left in your home. Thermal fogging can work for homes of any size and it is a highly effective method. For weaker but still persistent odors, other methods can produce the desired effects for you.
SERVPRO of Kingsport / Bristol serves our beautiful region, including Blountville, Blair Gap, and Long Island. When residents' homes sustain fire damage and other disasters, we are always on call to mitigate the damage. Contact us at (423) 245-5552 for 24/7 service.
