Durham's Fire Damage Restoration Services
SERVPRO Offers Cleanup and Restoration for Durham Properties Post House Fires
Any time something burns inside your Durham home, multiple types of damage can take place. Some materials get burnt so severely that they must get removed and replaced. Other items get partially charred so that they need to get resurfaced and repainted.
Smoke created by the fire often travels to various rooms inside the house leaving behind soils and soot residues. SERVPRO's fire damage technicians in Durham offer a variety of services related to smoke and soot restoration. The full restoration process after a blaze requires following several steps.
The first type of service that gets performed after a house burns is mitigation. The goal of mitigation is to secure the structure and prevent further damage. Mitigation includes boarding up windows and emergency drying any water damage that occurred. For large scale building security outside contractors can be called in for those actions.
Next, structural cleaning takes place. The purpose of this step is to remove smoke damage from all components and deodorize them. In some scenarios, cleaning contents occurs when items are severely smoke damaged. Sometimes contents get cleaned on the job site other times they get transported to another location to get cleaned and deodorized. SERVPRO offers an excellent pack-out, storage, and rehabilitation service.
In certain situations, specialty restoration services get used to restore specific items. Some contents that need specialists to restore include electronics, dry cleaning of clothing, and resurfacing of furniture. At times artwork requires particular attention to restore to original conditions and can be sent out to a specialized company that excels at this cleaning.
In many scenarios, reconstruction takes place as a final step in the restoration process. In cases of severe fire damage, building contents get burned to the point of becoming non-salvageable. After all burnt materials get removed, the area is painted with a sealant paint so that any remaining foul odors get masked and encapsulated. Then the structural components get rebuilt which at times is more complicated than basic home remodeling.
The final goal of any fire restoration process is to bring the home back to preloss conditions whenever possible. For professional assistance with fire restorations services, call SERVPRO of North Durham at (919) 467-0880 seven days a week.
