What You Can Expect During Fire Damage Cleanup in Your Closter Home

Fire damage is one of those home disasters that tend to look worse before it gets better. Numerous actions are necessary during the cleanup and readying for repairs and reconstruction.

One of the most common steps taken in Closter homes during fire damage restoration comes in the form of controlled demolition. This is a method that SERVPRO technicians receive a large amount of training in during the certification process. The cutting away of charred sheetrock or building materials that buckled from either fire or water damage is a necessary step in reducing odor, limiting the spread of soot, and prepping the property for reconstruction.

How Much is Too Much Fire Damage for Restoration?
There is no one-size-fits-all rule for fire loss cleanup. SERVPRO technicians examine each item and area of the home for restoration potential through various cleaning methods and techniques. Nonporous items generally fare better than things that can take in smoke odors and soot.

Stay Out of the Fire Loss Area
One of the first actions technicians practice involves establishing containment or a negative air barrier space around the area in the home with fire damage. This limits the accidental spread of soot to currently unaffected areas of the house.

Let the Technicians Know What is Important
SERVPRO knows that some things in the home are invaluable to homeowners, and when someone tells them to save their favorite 75-gallon aquarium or wedding photo album is priceless, the technicians work to find those items and ascertain the restoration potential. Through their various cleaning solutions, often complicated restorations are possible.

Taking the Stress Out of Rebuilding
After fire damage cleanup, the property receives treatments against odor and mold to ensure it is ready for reconstruction. Because SERVPRO has a general contractor license #13VH001305854800, they can lessen the anxiety for property owners from having to find, vet and hire builders to perform the needed repairs and construction to restore the structure entirely.
