Can Inspections Make Restoration More Efficient in Wilmington Homes?

By looking at the condition of a damaged home or business early in the restoration process, our experienced SERVPRO professionals can judge the necessary restoration practices. Inspections and damage assessments evaluate safety and health hazards present as well to prioritize mitigation work. 

How Do Smoke and Soot Get Removed from Wilmington Houses?

Smoke and soot residues are formidable obstacles to restoration. Depending on the type of materials combusted, soils and deposits will change throughout the property. We have many wet and dry-cleaning solutions to eliminate residues adhered to surfaces and contents. 

Can Odors Get Removed from Wilmington Properties After a Fire? 

Among the more challenging aspects of smoke, remediation is removing harsh odors from the property. Combustion of varying materials can leave several types of noxious smells behind. We have multiple counteractant products to reduce the severity and allow our hydroxyl machines and ozone generators to complete the deodorization.
