The Fire Cleanup Process
A fire, even a small one, can end up causing many more problems than you might think.
At SERVPRO, we make sure to clean and check every aspect of fire damage and make sure that
your home or property is restored to its previous state, and we do so in consideration of two
critical areas: structure and content.
Structural cleaning includes removing soot, odors, and stains from walls, ceilings,
carpeting, and woodwork. Often, even if you can’t see it, a fire will leave residue and affect areas
of your home that need to be either thoroughly cleaned or removed in order to truly get rid of any
scent. We have the training to identify areas of potential damage, and a quick walkthrough will
establish what areas need cleaning. Our equipment is the best for the job, and we have the
strongest cleaning agents available. If we need to, we’ll remove any areas that are too badly
damaged, and get them ready for replacement.
We also clean the contents of your home. This includes furniture, drapery, and other
belongings that are affected by fire damage. We provide wet or dry cleaning, depending on the
nature of the material and the severity of damage. In addition to this, we can test your materials
to see if they’ve been damaged and need repair. Your items can be meaningful, and we will be as
respectful and careful as we can in the cleaning process to get them to their preloss condition.
We can also keep an inventory of your items for record purposes.
If you’ve had any kind of fire damage and would like to schedule an appointment, give us
