Effective Fire Mitigation for Damaged Exeter Houses

The mitigation process for post-fire recovery starts with protecting contents from continued damage. The debris removal effort reduces airborne contaminants and soot particles to preserve these personal belongings and furniture contents as well. 

Soot Removal for Fire and Smoke Damage in Exeter Structures

Removing soot from surfaces can be a critical step in the fire restoration process. Many factors determine the type of smoke residues, the location of damage, and the thickness of these deposits. Having effective cleaning solutions for all of these scenarios allows our SERVPRO team to provide efficient and thorough results. 

Post-Smoke Remediation Odor Removal in Exeter Properties 

One of the ongoing challenges for fire and smoke damage removal and cleaning in area homes and businesses is harsh odors from combustion. We have multiple deodorization strategies suitable for single-family homes or larger commercial buildings like the Fox Hill Country Club. Neutralization can occur with foggers, hydroxyl machines, and ozone generators.

Our Fire Restoration Process

Every fire damage event is a little different and requires a unique solution, but the general process stays the same. The steps listed below illustrate our process for the “typical” fire damage emergency.

Step 1: Emergency Contact

The fire restoration process begins when you call us. Our consultant will guide you through the crisis and may ask several questions to help us better understand the type of fire damage you experienced, determining the equipment and resources needed.

Step 2: Inspection and Fire Damage Assessment

We determine the scope of the fire and smoke damage by examining the affected areas and by testing the adjoining rooms for smoke and soot damage. An accurate assessment is crucial to the planning process. 

Step 3: Immediate Board-Up and Roof-Tarp Service (if needed)

Fire damage can often compromise windows, walls, and roofs. To maintain security and to protect against further damage, we can board up missing windows and walls and place tarps on damaged roofs. 

Step 4: Water Removal and Drying (if water damage is present)

The water removal process begins almost immediately and removes the majority of the water. We then use dehumidifiers and air movers to remove the remaining water and complete the drying process. 

Step 5: Removal of Smoke and Soot from All Surfaces

Your property’s ceiling, walls, floors, and other surfaces will likely have smoke and soot residue. We’ll use specialized cleaning products, equipment, and techniques to properly clean your home or business. 

Step 6: Cleaning and Sanitizing

Any restorable items will be cleaned and sanitized. We’ll use a variety of specialized cleaning techniques to restore your belongings to pre-fire condition. Our professionals will also remove smoke and other odors using advanced air scrubbing equipment and fogging devices with deodorizers.

Step 7: Restoration

Restoration is the final step—getting your home or business to its pre-fire condition. Restoration may involve minor repairs, such as replacing drywall, painting, and installing new carpet; or it may entail major repairs such as the reconstruction of various areas or rooms in a home or business.
