What To Expect From Professional Fire Damage Remediation In Hicksville

After you and your family endure the chaos and fear of a fire in your Hicksville dwelling, it is natural to feel overwhelmed and perhaps a bit hopeless. The emotions are real and the concerns understandable, but lining up a reliable fire mitigation business can significantly ease stress. Innovative equipment and well-trained and prepared technicians can transform a badly damaged building to “Like it never even happened.”

Our team of experts prepares for effective fire damage restoration in your Hicksville home through training offered through the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) and on-the-job experience with our seasoned managers.  We are ready to take on all aspects of your remediation project with skill and compassion.

Water & Fire Damage Restorations

The first task in a fire damage recovery job is often water and chemical extinguisher residue removal. Firefighting uses large quantities of water, and for safety from slip and fall and electrical shock risks, the water must go. Then a SERVPRO IICRC-certified Fire and Smoke Restoration Technician (FSRT) evaluates the sooty residue coating surfaces, matching characteristics with appropriate cleaning techniques, products, and tools.

Light and ashy debris from wood or paper fires respond well to dry sponging and HEPA-filtered vacuuming. Thicker coatings from fires started from overheated electrical cords and connections, or smoldering burns-consuming fabrics need loosening with wetting agents and surfactants in some cleaners. Agitation also helps dislodge the soot. SERVPRO frequently sees protein-based residues as well, deposited after kitchen and grease fires. Difficult to remove and highly odiferous, this type of soot needs abrasives and even solvent to dissolve and wipe away.

SERVPRO team members attempt to retain as many original structural materials as possible. If deeply charred and weakened, some structural components and fixtures need demolition and replacement. We can brush and sand down the charred wood in less severe instances and ready it for restoration.

Smoke Damage

The lingering smell of a fire needs SERVPRO’s professional expertise. Once cleanup completes, we use various strategies to eliminate the remaining odors, not just cover them with perfumes. Thermal foggers, ozone machines, and hydroxyl generators change the odor-bearing particle’s chemical composition to rid your home permanently of the stench.
