Contact SERVPRO Technicians in Wilmington to Perform Fire  Restoration in Your Property.

Many fires begin in the kitchen, and they can lead to severe destruction in a home. Immediately soot and smoke residues get into contact with water, the solution begins to discolor surfaces. SERVPRO technicians can help you to not only get your property back to its former glory but also minimize as much loss as possible.

What is fire damage restoration?

It is the process where professional restorers repair and restore homes after damage resulting from smoke, soot, fire, and corrosive byproducts. When you contact our technicians to perform fire restoration in your Wilmington property, we can take every restoration step seriously.

The water used to fight the flames may soak into various surfaces, weakening the structure while the charcoal-like odor may start to get stronger each day the fire damage mitigation and restoration process is delayed. Our restoration procedure involves water removal, cleaning soot from affected surfaces, and deodorization.

How do you prevent further damage from occurring?

Our technicians have decades of experience and access to state-of-the-art equipment that helps us mitigate fire damage of any size or scope. Our team of technicians comprises of:

Fabric and upholstery cleaning technician

Water damage restoration expert

An odor control technician

Our priority during restoration is to stop further damage. Heavy rains in your area can put your property at risk of water damage. Our technicians can protect your property from moisture by boarding up any openings, and weakened surfaces. We are proficient in water damage mitigation and restoration. This includes removing water from affected surfaces and drying them thoroughly.

We also check for moisture in a home during the fire restoration process. An eyeball test is not accurate for detecting moisture or areas affected by mold. SERVPRO technicians can use thermal imaging cameras to check for moisture in the affected property.

How do restorers clean surfaces covered with smoke and soot residues?

The soot and smoke residues that accompany a house fire can be impossible to clean without advanced cleaning products. That is because the staining that occurs during the unfortunate incident goes beyond the surface. We can use brown out mixed with shampoo super concentrate to remove colored spots and stains on carpet and fabric.

Cleaning the affected area does not necessarily mean that odors cannot linger throughout your property. The charcoal-like smell can hide in your furniture, carpets, and upholstery. Our technicians can use instant odor counteractant pellets to control the odor in your property. The pellets ensure your home smells fresh and clean.

A fire can cause irreversible damage to your property. Contact SERVPRO of Hockessin / Elsmere at (302) 992-0104 for help. We can restore your property to its preloss state in a brief period, making the fire loss seem "Like it never even happened."
