Fire Damage Repair in Newark Is Efficient with SERVPRO

Some home structure and contents, like furniture and flooring, are made with synthetic materials. After a fire, these items can go from salvageable to unsalvageable fast, increasing your overall loss. Professional restorers offer an immediate response to combat such losses. 

Handling fire damage in your Newark home can be highly stressful. SERVPRO is here to guide you through the crisis. Fire damage restoration is a multi-step process that may include the following services: 

  • Inspection
  • Safety and prevention
  • Debris and soot removal 
  • Water removal and cleaning 
  • Reconstruct your home's physical structure. 

When beginning the restoration process, our SERVPRO team can account for the severity of the damage and determine the repairs we must do. We conduct testing to locate smoke residues. In most fire damage situations, we start testing the heavier residue deposits and work towards lighter deposits.  

After the fire, your home may be covered in soot and have a strong smoke odor. Soot is an oily substance that easily stains any items it lands on. Our technicians can use a heavy-duty vacuum to remove the soot. We can also scrub the ceilings and walls of soot using dry cleaning sponges. 

Smoke residues usually give off foul odors. The smoke smell can linger if you fail to remove all the sources. Our SERVPRO crew can remove all charred structural materials and clean all restorable surfaces before using deodorization products and equipment. We can use thermal fogging equipment to make a fog similar to the smoke produced in a fire. This enables the deodorizer to interact more effectively with smell-causing residues. In more difficult odor situations, we can seal the surfaces exposed to malodors. Sealants work by encapsulating the remaining odor residues. 

It is also necessary to reconstruct your home's physical structure. The tasks we can accomplish include removing and replacing ruined drywall, replacing doors and windows, fixing damaged plumbing, and replacing or repairing damaged roofing materials. Our SERVPRO technicians can create a complete list of the structures requiring repairs.
