Complete Restoration after Fire Damage in Pearl River

Lit candles during the fall and winter holidays play a role in creating a warm and inviting environment in many homes around Pearl River. During the excitement of entertaining family and other guests, often after long absences, accidents might happen involving one of the candles. Fire can get out of control quickly, especially if natural materials like pine boughs or wispy decorative fabrics ignite.

When decorations or other items in a home in Pearl River ignite, causing fire damage, SERVPRO does more than clean things up for the homeowner. We also dry the area doused with water and deodorize the smoke smells coming from the charred items. 

Because smoke can linger inside a home and pollute the air, we work with at least one air scrubber running. After testing to locate any damp areas, we know where to set up and direct air movers that dry these areas. We position the air scrubbers downwind, per se, to collect smoke, airborne soot, and any dust we generate as we restore your property.

Smoke might look like a gas, but it is really made of microscopic particles that can penetrate into the pores and openings of otherwise unaffected materials like wood trim, carpeting, and brick. SERVPRO's Fire Damage and Smoke Restoration Technician (FSRT) use different methods to get surfaces cleared away of soot. 

Depending on the type of soot, we use different methods. Pine and many other plants contain a lot of oils ad resins that can make cleaning it up challenging. We use special cleaning agents that cut through the bonds when we encounter this. We also use ultrasonic technology to clean many items at our facility.

Inaccessible areas can also harbor smoke deposits or soot. Cleaning accessible areas and having our building services department replace charred walls and ceilings eliminates much of the soot that causes strong and constant odors. Our Odor Control Technician (OCT) uses fogging as a way to bind soot so it can no longer cause odors.

We work on your home and its contents in teams to ensure that we provide you with a dry, clean, and odor-free residence as quickly as possible. SERVPRO of Slidell is Faster To Any Size Disaster near Abita Springs and Lacombe. After fire damage ruins your house, call us at our local number, (985) 649-1516, 24/7.
