Ogletown, DE Fire Damage Cleanup and Restoration

Being only three miles from Newark, Ogletown serves as a bedroom community for this larger municipality and even larger Wilmington in the region. When fire debris and damage situations develop, we have effective mitigation and restoration solutions for homes and larger businesses like Christiana Hospital and the Center Pointe Plaza. 

What Actions Are Taken Against Fire Debris in Ogletown Houses? 

Debris can be one of the first effects noticed in a house after a fire gets extinguished. The presence of heaped charred remnants, ash, and smoke solids creates a volatile environment for occupants and technicians. Removing fire debris and safely discarding it reduces smoke odors and soot concentrations.  

How Does Fire Mitigation and Restoration Begin for Ogletown Properties?  

Mitigation and restoration of damaged elements in your New Castle County home have the same objectives. Our immediate actions serve to shorten the overall restoration process and prevent the spread of harmful effects to new areas of the house. Some of these emergency services and focal points include: 

  • smoke damage removal
  • content relocation
  • controlled demolition
  • fire damaged homes
  • smoke remediation

Soot Removal Services for Ogletown Homes

Removing soot and smoke residues is a product of multiple wet and dry cleaning strategies. Our trained restoration professionals introduce alkaline cleaners and chemical sponges to wipe away soot and protect the underlying substrate from marring whenever possible.

Our Fire Restoration Process

Every fire damage event is a little different and requires a unique solution, but the general process stays the same. The steps listed below illustrate our process for the “typical” fire damage emergency.

Step 1: Emergency Contact

We are available 24 hours, 7 days a week. When you call, one of our representatives will ask a series of questions about the fire damage to your home or business. This information helps us respond immediately with all the needed equipment and resources.

Step 2: Inspection and Fire Damage Assessment

We carefully inspect and test adjoining rooms of your property to determine the extent of the fire, smoke, and soot damage. This step is crucial to developing a plan of action.

Step 3: Immediate Board-Up and Roof-Tarp Service (if needed)

Fire damage can often compromise windows, walls, and roofs. To maintain security and to protect against further damage, we can board up missing windows and walls and place tarps on damaged roofs. 

Step 4: Water Removal and Drying (if water damage is present)

If needed, we can begin the water removal process with powerful pumps and extraction units. This removes most of the water. We complete the water removal and drying process with industrial-strength dehumidifiers and air movers. 

Step 5: Removal of Smoke and Soot from All Surfaces

Your property’s ceiling, walls, floors, and other surfaces will likely have smoke and soot residue. We’ll use specialized cleaning products, equipment, and techniques to properly clean your home or business. 

Step 6: Cleaning and Sanitizing

We clean and sanitize the restorable items and structures damaged by the fire. Our professionals use a variety of cleaning techniques to restore your belongings to pre-fire condition. We’re also trained to remove odors using industrial air scrubbers and fogging equipment.

Step 7: Restoration

Restoration is the final step—getting your home or business to its pre-fire condition. Restoration may involve minor repairs, such as replacing drywall, painting, and installing new carpet; or it may entail major repairs such as the reconstruction of various areas or rooms in a home or business.
