SERVPRO® Techs Mitigate, Clean, Restore Post-Fire

Maintaining your home in Slidell is something many homeowners do themselves. Learning the nuances of your own home can make you more adept at spotting problems early. Checking outlets and ensuring power strips are not overloaded can help prevent fire damage. Knowing your appliances can also help prevent anything from becoming too hot and igniting surrounding materials.

Knowing the intricacies of your family's home in Slidell cannot guarantee fire damage never takes place. SERVPRO has technicians who can work in teams, so your family can soon move home "Like it never even happened." We use international standards to mitigate the existing damage. We remove soot, ash, and other fire by-products so your family does not see or smell anything unpleasant. Physically damaged structures and many personal belongings also require restoration work, and we're highly skilled in every step.

Before doing a final walk-through with your family to show you the work we have accomplished, we must complete some crucial tasks, including:

  • Deodorization, and
  • Drying

Removing the sharp odors from a fire can require several different but simultaneous approaches. There are other reasons for the need for various applications. New odors can come from charred wood, melted plastics, natural fibers (clothing made from leather or fur), and other synthetics (upholstery/carpeting). The heat from the fire forces smoke from partially burned items into inaccessible locations. For this, we use thermal fogging. It copies the behavior of the smoke while introducing bonding agents that hinder the particles from making additional odors. Another method uses scented gels we inject into carpeting or upholstery.

Even when fire departments use foam, a house fire can leave your home with water damage if plumbing fixtures melt or warp enough to release water unabated. SERVPRO knows how to mitigate, clean up, and restore homes exhibiting both situations, saving you time and money.

You can trust the restoration of your home to the experienced team at SERVPRO of Slidell. For this and other services, including water damage restoration, call us at (985) 649-1516. Here to Help®.
