Cleaning Residues – An Important Part of Fire Damage Restoration in Denville Homes
Fire damage restoration of Denville homes to their preloss condition involves many activities. Fast action and response can significantly affect the amount of secondary damage caused by water, fire retardant elements, and smoke odors throughout the home.
SERVPRO provides fire damage restoration to residents' homes in Denville and surrounding areas. Once the fire department leaves the scene, our experts quickly get to work following a standard industry plan for managing the aftermath of a fire. The activities we follow include:
- Assessment of the damage, type of fire, and types of items burned in the fire
- Emergency board-up of broken windows and doors
- Removal of fire damage debris that cannot be restored, water, and chemicals to help control odors
- Demolition of fire-damaged structures – cabinets, flooring, and wall materials as needed
- Cleaning smoke residues
- Restoration and repair to return your home to pre- damaged condition
Many items can be cleaned and restored. They may be undamaged by fire but have been exposed to smoke odors and residues. Experience has proven that it is less expensive for the homeowner if the contents are cleaned properly and returned to their original condition than replacing them.
SERVPRO applies these cleaning principles when restoring items exposed to smoke residues:
- Residues are located throughout the home
- Identification of the type of residue – fluffy, oily, water, and non-water soluble
- Surface type the smoke residues are on – porous, fabric, semi-porous
- Method of the capture of residues – vacuum, wipe, or a cleaning solution
- Removal of residues from top to bottom and disposal of residues and cleaning materials
SERVPRO technicians work closely with the homeowner and their insurance adjuster to discuss cleaning approaches and identify high-value items from a monetary or personal perspective that require special attention.
