Our Fire Damage Technicians Can Restore Your Home To Pre-Damage Condition
Why SERVPRO Specialists Remove Burnt Items First When Mitigating Fire Damage In Westville
During a house fire, any variety of both personal belongings and structural components can sustain damage. Westville residents might find severe damage in the form of charred and blackened doors or blackened walls and grimy windows.
Why SERVPRO helps families in Westville recover from fire damage quickly is because of the powerful and pervasive odors left behind. These odors can prevent us from restoring your home “Like it never even happened,” so we include odor removal and control methods from the start. SERVPRO specialists used tested and IICRC-approved methods to easily rid homes of such odors.
One of the first steps involves inspecting the many materials that exhibit charring, blackened surfaces, or blistered surfaces. While objects that seem otherwise unharmed except for surface marring, these can also produce foul smells. Plastics can release gases and fumes because of the chemical changes that began taking place during exposure to the heat of the fire. Many items like this continue to produce such gases long after the firefighters put the fire out and left the home.
To make the process more efficient, when we inspect the items inside a fire-damaged home, we consider the ability of these items to come clean again. When we come across damaged items that require replacements, removing them accomplishes the removal of an odor-producing article that may have also contained safety issues such as newly exposed metal fasteners or sharp and jagged edges.
The same is also true for the personal belongings and other furnishings that a house contains. Inspecting the contents of a residence can help us determine the initial costs to replace essential items for your family, as well as remove items that create noxious odors inside the home. Many of the things can become clean again through the use of different techniques while in your home.
