Proper Techniques for Home Restoration After a Fire | SERVPRO® of Western Dutchess County
Any time of year is a good time to practice fire preparedness, but homeowners should be especially careful during the winter months. The highest number of home fires are in the winter, with December being the peak.
Planning for a fire in advance is one of the best ways to keep yourself and your loved ones safe. A fire escape plan and emergency precautions are helpful in the moment, but knowing what to do after the fact can also provide valuable peace of mind. That is where picking a restoration company in advance comes into play.
When you pick your fire restoration company in advance, you want to know that you can call them at any point and have them respond quickly. Not only does SERVPRO of Western Dutchess County guarantee that for our customers, but we also guarantee that we will send highly trained technicians to the scene who are well-versed in a variety of cleanup scenarios. Here are the ways we can help:
Correctly repairing a home’s structure after a fire is essential, and it is something we take very seriously. By first performing testing to determine the true extent of the damage, we will then move in with our equipment and begin the restoration process. We handle reconstruction, soot removal and more on walls, doors and floors, and can even prepare surfaces for fresh paint.
Restoring contents is typically less costly than replacing all your belongings, and allows you to keep the things you already own and like. We have both wet and dry cleaning tools to ensure each item gets the care it needs, from art to area rugs and most things in between. A full cleaning and deodorizing ensures the items are still safe to use and do not have any lingering odors.
The smoke and soot left behind in the air after a fire are more than just harsh scents—exposure to them has been linked to health issues such as cancers as well due to the chemicals and compounds in combusted material. We utilize air scrubbers to take care of these particles, making the air quality healthy once again throughout your household.
