Smoke coming under door; flames seen under door SERVPRO has the know-how to restore your fire damaged home and belongings.

SERVPRO Professionals in Newburg Can Handle the Fire Damage in Affected Properties

Fire can cause significant destruction to your Newburg property, and if you delay the restoration process, the secondary damage can be irreversible. It is essential to contact a reliable fire restoration firm like SERVPRO within 24 hours after the unfortunate incident. We respond within the shortest time feasible since we understand how fast the secondary damage can spread in your property.

How fast is the restoration process?

Every damage situation is unique. The time our restorers can take to handle the fire damage in your Newburg home depends on:

  • The number of rooms damaged by the fire
  • The intensity of the damage
  • Materials burned during the incident

Our technicians can clean your property quickly and efficiently. It can take a few days to complete the restoration process.

Can I inspect my property after the incident?

At SERVPRO, we advise our customers not to enter the property after a fire. Post-fire hazards include:

  • Inhaling smoke and soot residues
  • Spreading the smoke and soot residues on various surfaces
  • Risking collapse since the structure could be weak after the fire

Can I clean the affected area myself?

Cleaning various surfaces in the affected property using home remedies and cleaning products can cause more damage. Besides, the restoration process requires trained and experienced persons to avoid incurring huge losses and expensive repairs. Our restorers have innovative equipment and products that help us to minimize damage. We also have protective gear that protects us from inhaling smoke residues.

Surfaces with heavy soot and smoke residues can be challenging for inexperienced homeowners to clean. Our restorers can use abrasive powders or roto pads and brushes to agitate the surface for easy cleaning. We can then vacuum the massive deposits from the surface to keep the loose particles from spreading.

Can technicians eliminate the smoke odor?

Smoke odors can linger even after heavy cleaning. The smells can hide in hard to reach areas or confined spots. We can use injection devices such as syringe and needle to inject small amounts of deodorant into the confined area. Since the odor may continue to persist, we can use air scrubbers to extract the airborne particles, gases, and odors from the air. The equipment drives indoor air through several filters to capture the odor particles and gases. It then exhausts fresh air back into the structure.

Even a small fire can jeopardize the safety and comfort of your family. Call SERVPRO of North Orange County and SERVPRO of South Orange County at (845) 342-3333 for effective restoration services that can make the fire loss seem, “Like it never even happened.”
