Premier Fire Damage Restoration in Mahopac
SERVPRO Technicians Can Restore your Home
Housefires happen when stoves are left on, electrics malfunction, or candles and cigarettes are not put out. While these occurrences may feel like a disaster, they are often controlled quickly with minimal harm to the occupants. However, fire does produce smoke which can cause significant damage to walls, ceilings, and belongings. Much work is ahead to get your home back. That work includes removing charred materials, cleaning soot or smoke, and removing odor. SERVPRO technicians are experts for:
- Smoke Restoration
- Fire damage
- Odor control
Since the immediate impact of fire damage in your Mahopac home is smoke, it makes sense to hire professional technicians that understand how smoke behaves and how to remove its residues. High temperatures cause combustion, which releases smoke. The type of smoke it releases depends on what each material is made from. A fuel or grease fire releases oily, greasy smoke. Dry organic matter like wood releases a dry smoke. Each type requires a different set of cleaning equipment and chemicals to remove.
Removing smoke residues is challenging, so we recommend waiting for SERVPRO technicians before tackling residues on walls or ceilings. General cleaning methods such as light vacuuming or ventilating the space can be helpful and are unlikely to exacerbate the damages. We usually perform these prep cleaning services first before moving on to tackle more stubborn damages. For odor control, our team uses various equipment and chemicals to remove burnt smells.
- Oily smoke deposits require the removal of oil-based cleaning solvents, sometimes called dry solvents.
- Dry soot can often be removed with vacuuming, scrubbing, or a household detergent.
- Odor-counteracting pellets, hydroxyl generators, and vaporizers are different methods of dispersing deodorants to counteract malodor.
