SERVPRO Can Assist You to Handle Fire Damage in Your South Carolina Residence

After a fire breaks out in your residence, leaving the building immediately and having the local fire department extinguish the flames is essential. After the fire is out, using improper cleaning methods and products to clean your home can smear smoke residues and cause them to penetrate deeper into the affected materials. Call a restoration specialist like SERVPRO to stabilize your property and begin the restoration and rebuilding process.

We have the expertise, products, and equipment required to handle fire damage and return it to its pre-fire condition. The fire damage repair process varies slightly between cases and may involve the following activities:

  • Removing debris
  • Removing water and chemicals used to extinguish the fire.
  • Soot removal
  • Odor removal

During a fire, smoke and soot particles settle on and adhere to surfaces. Restoration involves removing the soot residues. Soot residues differ, and some types are easier to clean than others. The types of residues that our SERVPRO technicians usually clean include:

  • Wet smoke residues
  • Dry smoke residues
  • Dry and damp smoke residues
  • Fuel oil smoke residues

We use different cleaning methods to eliminate various kinds of residues. It is necessary to capture residues before removing them. Our SERVPRO technicians use fluids and air to release and carry soils away. Fluids and air carry suspended particles with them on contact. Dissolving and vacuuming are two methods we use to contact soils and carry them away. Vacuuming is effective in removing dry particles which are loosely attached to surfaces.

Our SERVPRO restorers can use thermal fogging equipment to remove odors.  Thermal foggers work by vaporizing petroleum-based or solvent-based deodorizers. They generate a fog or smoke that consists of small particles, ranging in size from one half a micron to 25 microns. They are approximately the size of odor-generating molecules. The particles make a fog similar to the smoke a fire produces, enabling the deodorizer to interact effectively with odor-causing residues.
