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.

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

The fire restoration process begins when you call us. Our consultant will guide you through the crisis and may ask several questions to help us better understand the type of fire damage you experienced, determining the equipment and resources needed.

Step 2: Inspection and Fire Damage Assessment

We determine the scope of the fire and smoke damage by examining the affected areas and by testing the adjoining rooms for smoke and soot damage. An accurate assessment is crucial to the planning process. 

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

In many fire damage cases, it’s necessary to board up missing windows and walls and to place tarps on a damaged roof. This helps to maintain security and to protect against further damage. 

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

We use specialized equipment and techniques to remove smoke and soot from ceilings, walls, and other surfaces. 

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.
