Our Professionals Can Return Your Belleville Home To Pre-Damage Condition After A Fire
SERVPRO Tackles Fire Damage And More In Belleville
Fire damage leaves behind not only a charred building structure and contents, but there is also the stress of cleanup and restoration; plus the task of replacing fire loss items. And there is the pungent smoke odor.
Our emergency response team handled fire damage and the aftermath in a Belleville home. The fire started in a bedroom when a candle placed too close to a window treatment ignited. The homeowner extinguished the fire quickly; however, discoloration and odor remained from the fire extinguisher residue and the smoke.
When the homeowner contacted us, we advised her to let as little traffic as possible into the room before we arrived and to close the door to the bedroom. When we arrived on-site a short time later, we immediately contained the bedroom using heavy plastic around the doorway and over the registers to stop the spread of odor-causing soot throughout the home.
The damaged curtains and an ottoman under the window were both removed as they sustained too much damage. The area rug showed no signs of charring but emitted a strong smoke odor. Our technicians used handheld vacuums with HEPA filters to clean up both the white, powdery residue from the fire extinguisher as well as the soot from all exposed surfaces.
SERVPRO technicians undergo extensive training in various restoration sciences including Fire & Smoke Damage Restoration Technician (FSDR). Our techs utilize different types of equipment and techniques to ensure the best outcome possible and save as many home contents as possible from fire loss.
Fire odor can be a huge problem after a fire. It should not be covered up and needs neutralization. We rely on equipment such as ozone machines or hydroxyl generators, both devices latch onto odorous particulates and eradicate them.
Thermal fogging is another frequently used method for odor control as it is ideal for small or large applications. The emitted fog goes anywhere smoke went and eliminated the odor. So any time the homeowners enter the room, there are no pungent reminders of the fire.
