How to Eliminate Smoke Residues After Fire Damage in Your Syosset Home

Any size fire can produce significant smoke, leaving soot and unpleasant smells that can penetrate carpets, clothing, upholstery, and other materials. After a fire loss, you can hire fire restoration experts from SERVPRO to help you deal with the problem. Our technicians can use different techniques to restore your home to normal, depending on the extent of the damage.

The fire damage in your Syosset home may include soot, smoke, and ash residues even in the rooms that the flames did not ruin. If you let the residues remain in the house for a long time, removing them can be more difficult. Soot can cause discoloration of clothing, draperies, walls, and ceilings the longer it stays without being removed. It can also discolor plastics and appliance finishes. Windows and glass surfaces may etch, and you may have to replace them.

Restoring your home after a fire requires special tools, enough workforce, and proper cleaning techniques. SERVPRO has the resources and skills needed to deal with soot damage. Our Fire & Smoke Damage Restoration Technicians (FSRTs) can assess the extent of smoke damage and inform you what we can do to bring your home back to its original condition.

Our technicians can use several strategies to clean up your home. We can pre-clean the affected areas through vacuuming or dry brushing to eliminate lingering dirt and ash. Our crew can then use general surface cleaners to wet-clean various surfaces such as appliances, painted walls, ceilings, hard surface furniture, countertops, plastics, and paneling. The alkalinity of general surface cleaners is low enough, and these products do not ruin semi-gloss interior paint.

We can effectively eliminate smoke residues from your home's interior and exterior surfaces. The fire may have severely ruined some structures in your home, such that it is impossible to restore them to the preloss state. Our restorers can dispose of the items that the flames have charred or heat has blistered. To eliminate odors, our technicians can use thermal foggers and air scrubbers.

We provide off-site restoration services for severely ruined contents. We offer move-out services, which involve removing affected items from the home and taking them to our facilities for complete smoke damage restoration. We return the items to a home after the restoration process. Regardless of the smoke damage cleanup services you need, we can coordinate with your insurer to minimize stress and provide you with peace of mind.

If you need to remove smoke residues after a fire loss in your Hicksville, Plainview, or Woodbury home, call SERVPRO of Hicksville / Plainview at (516) 733-1800 for prompt restoration. We're Faster To Any Size Disaster.
