Fire and smoke assessment

Our SERVPRO technicians can perform a full inspection in all affected areas of your residence. Accounting for all the fire and smoke damage enables us to develop an action plan.

Board up and roof tarping

We can protect your home from further damage by boarding up openings in the walls, doors, or windows and tarping the roof. The covering materials we can use include roofing tarpaulins, exterior grade plywood, and rolls of polyethylene sheeting.

Water removal and drying

If there is water and moisture from fire suppression efforts, our SERVPRO technicians can remove it using portable extraction units. To dry the affected areas, we can use air movers to increase evaporation and the surface level and desiccant dehumidifiers to remove water vapor from the air. Desiccant dehumidifiers use chemicals called desiccants that have a high affinity for water. The chemicals readily absorb moisture from the air that the dehumidifiers process.

Soot removal

After smoke settles on surfaces as residues, it is known as soot. Soot residues may contain different acids that can cause corrosion and discoloration if they remain on materials over time. We can use dry cleaning sponges and specialized techniques to remove soot from every affected surface.

Rebuilding or reconstruction

This involves repairs like replacing drywall, carpet replacement, and painting.
