A kitchen covered in soot and smoke damage after a fire disaster We have the experience, state-of-the-art equipment, and advanced training to restore your home to pre-damage condition after a fire.

How Professional Fire Damage Cleanup Works in Dallas Homes

Fire damage is not an uncommon occurrence in a home. Particularly on a small scale. Pans overheat and flame up, candles sometimes get knocked over, and cigarettes rolling out of ashtrays are all frequently seen reasons fires happened. When only a minor area gets affected, homeowners clean up the smoke and soot. However, any size of fire loss has the potential to leave behind unhealthy, odorous residue.

Even a seemingly small around of fire damage in a Dallas kitchen should have professional cleanup and restoration and the reasons why are many. First and foremost, soot spreads quickly, and anywhere it covers, it has the potential to irritate the skin, contribute to breathing difficulties in some individuals and cause unpleasant odors.

Stopping Cross-Contamination

SERVPRO techs cover doorways and vents to limit the spread of soot outside the loss area. In some cases, the techs set up negative air chambers to capture and port away soot and eliminate the chance of spreading throughout the property. If the HVAC system ran post-fire, the techs commonly inspect and clean if necessary as a part of the mitigation process.

Cleaning Smoke Residues

As fire damage spreads, anywhere the smoke goes, it leaves its mark. Testing the smoke for the type of residue and the kind of surface being clean narrows down the choice for the kind of application used. Just because an item has extensive smoke damage does not mean it is a loss. When SERVPRO techs carefully clean away the soot and smoke residues using their professional-grade solutions, things thought to be a loss can be a restoration success story. Wet smoke, in particular, requires deep cleaning with solvent-based cleaning agents to release its grip on surfaces.

Attention to Air Quality

This is one of the most significant differences between DIY cleanup and professional restoration services is in the ability to improve air quality. Consumer-grade devices do not have the power to eliminate airborne particulate at the same level as the air scrubbers.

SERVPRO of Southeast Dallas County at (972) 227-0800 has the certified techs with the equipment and experience to handle any type of fire damage and restore homes to their preloss condition, "Like it never even happened."
