After extinguishing the flames of a house fire, there is secondary damage that comes from water during the firefighting efforts. We can employ thermal imaging technology to find hidden moisture so that we catch mold and mildew before it has the chance to grow and fester. Our trained SERVPRO estimator helps to determine the full scope of the damage, take photographic evidence for your insurance provider, and work on estimating restoration costs – all while keeping safety in mind.
Once extinguishing the fire, dry smoke can be easier to clean off because it does not stick to surfaces as wet smoke does. Wet smoke adheres to many surfaces and makes it difficult to clean with traditional methods. In cases where items are laden with wet smoke damage, we will make suggestions on what is salvageable and what needs disposing.
For the walls in your home, they could look clean yet hold foul odors after a fire. Hot air expands during a fire, and it forces smoke residue into the paint. SERVPRO technicians can try to use solvent-based cleaning products to remove the residue. However, if these products do not work, we can then suggest a sealant to help restore the wall to smell and looking like new again.
