Restoring Contents After Fire Damage In Your Dallas Home Can Help You Save Money

In many Dallas homes, flammable liquids like solvents, fuels, thinners, cleaning agents, paints, and adhesives are present. These liquids can ignite or explode if homeowners store them close to stovetops, candles, and other sources of heat. Their vapors can ignite easily, even from weak ignition sources or high temperatures, leading to fire damage in a house. A fire disaster can cause financial, physical, and emotional challenges to you and your family.

If a flammable substance has ignited and caused fire damage in your Dallas home, it is critical to schedule restoration services as soon as you can to prevent further destruction of its contents because of smoke and soot. Smoke and smoke particles are products of incomplete combustion, and they can degrade the contents of your house within a few days.

It's more cost effective to restore the contents than it is to replace or refinish them. A content restoration firm like SERVPRO can salvage items like antiques, furniture, bedding, books, carpets, and clothing, among other items. We can remove smoke odor, ash, and soot from such items and dry the ones that water from firefighting efforts may have damaged.

When fire burns rubbers, plastics and other products containing oil, soot can turn into a greasy, sticky substance that smears instead of going away when you attempt to wipe it. Soot can also be resistant to water-based cleaning products since it contains oil. We have appropriate and environmentally products that can eliminate soot from your possessions. Our restorers analyze the contents in all the rooms to identify which ones to restore and which ones require replacement. We use several methods to clean different items in a house, including:
• Dry cleaning

• Wet cleaning

• Foam cleaning

• Spray and wipe

• Abrasive cleaning

• Immersion cleaning

Our Fire & Smoke Damage Restoration technicians (FRST) follow a unique cleaning process to eradicate harmful particles from contents. To restore rugs and carpets, we can use commercial grade vacuums to remove ash from the fibers and then utilize natural cleaning solutions to remove soot marks. We can also restore soft products like clothing, bedding, and draperies by taking them to our facilities for cleaning with an Esporta wash system.

Some contents like upholstery can present challenges during the restorative cleaning process, such as shrinking because of dampness. We can restore such items using foam cleaning instead of other types of wet cleaning. If the fire damage in some of your contents is severe, our SERVPRO crew can document the non-salvageable items and place them on a non-restorable list to streamline the insurance claims process so you can be free from stress.

When a fire has ruined the contents of your property, call SERVPRO of Southeast Dallas County at (972) 227-0800 for restoration services. Our technicians can help you restore the salvageable items to their preloss condition. We can deal with the effects of fire damage to make it appear “Like it never even happened.”
