Inspection and Damage Assessment
Before we make recommendations for fire damage cleanup in Vernon CT homes, we inspect the property and determine what types of tasks we need to perform. We do a walkthrough, and we document visible damage, smoke contaminated air, and structural issues. We review our findings with you so you'll know what we need to accomplish.
Temporary Board-Ups and Tarping
Fires sometimes burn holes in roofs, walls, windows, and doors. Firefighters also create openings while attempting to put out a fire. These open areas leave your home vulnerable to additional loss. Rain can enter your interior, or your home could become a target for break-ins. Insurance companies understand this dynamic. That’s why property insurance policies include a clause that requires the owner to make reasonable repairs after their home sustains damage. Property owners must also "...Protect the property from further damage…”
We’re available 24 hours a day to assist you with board-ups and emergency repairs. If a fire caused a hole in your roof, we do emergency tarping to prevent additional problems.
Soot and Smoke Damage Removal
During a fire, gas and carbon particles form soot. Smoke and soot are so lightweight, that when a fire produces them in one room, they easily drift into other areas in your home. They coat your walls, floors, and fabrics, and they enter spaces, cracks, and air vents. They contaminate your personal property and home interiors with dark discoloration and acrid odors. If left in place, smoke and soot cause escalating damage and deterioration.
Even if your home has only minimal fire damage, smoke and soot don’t respond well to ordinary cleaning techniques. At SERVPRO, we use specialized equipment and commercial cleaning products specifically formulated for soot and smoke removal.
As a fire burns, it releases chemicals into the air. The odor they generate is a nuisance, but it’s also a health hazard. If you don’t have smoke odor professionally removed, the smell and the chemicals can contaminate your air indefinitely.
When we conduct fire damage cleanup in Vernon CT, we remove odors using industrial scrubbers, foggers, other specialized equipment, and odor-neutralizing products. We remove odors from furnishings, walls, fabric surfaces, and all other affected areas.
Water Removal and Drying
Water is important for extinguishing large fires, but it also causes problems. Water saturates drywall and seeps into crawlspaces. It leaks into living and storage areas, destroying appliances, wood, fabric furnishings, treasured family photos, and documents.
Water creates the perfect conditions for mold and mildew to thrive. As they grow, they release an unpleasant smell. They damage porous surfaces and eventually destroy them.
We respond immediately after a fire to help prevent water damage before it begins. We remove water from saturated surfaces and dry out wet areas before mold and mildew begin to grow. We remove, sort, and dry-out personal property. When necessary, we remediate mold and mildew.
Fire Extinguisher Cleanup
When you spray a fire extinguisher, it leaves a powdery chemical residue. Some extinguisher chemicals irritate the skin, eyes, and mucous membranes. When we do a fire extinguisher clean up, we eliminate potential problems by eliminating all of the residues and cleaning affected surfaces.
