Does a Fire Mean Replace All Damaged Property?

Can a Wilmington Residence Be Restored After Severe Damage? 

Thanks to smoke alarms, most home fires are put out quickly with minimal damage. With some fast-burning fires, however, there is often an excessive amount of damage before the fire department can extinguish them. 

Wilmington fire damage response needs to be as quick as the fire itself. Upon arrival, SERVPRO technicians perform a fast inspection to determine what can be cleaned or repaired, and what must be removed immediately for disposal.

Eliminating Threats to Area Homes

After stopping a fire, soot and burned property can still cause damage:

  • Soot, if left on surfaces, can pit and otherwise scar surfaces. Technicians use an extensive inventory of cleaning agents that not only eliminate the physical threat but also remove the odors that these particles generate which can spread through the home farther than the fire itself.
  • Burned items like carpets and furniture also generate odors and can be especially pungent. Team members immediately remove them and set up fans to circulate the air to clear lingering odors. 

To begin fire damage restoration, contact SERVPRO of Hockessin / Elsmere at (302) 992-0104 today.
