Tackling Fire Restoration in Wilmington
SERVPRO Can Help with Fire Restorations in Wilmington
If a fire ignites inside your apartment complex, more than one unit could be affected. Fires in apartments can easily torch surrounding units and those above and below them. Even if the flames coming from a fire that starts in a unit other than yours do not make it into your dwelling, the smoke from the blaze could still enter your unit and cause problems.
Sometimes fire restoration in your Wilmington apartment must occur even if no fire starts inside your apartment. For example, smoke particles can get very small and seep through the individual apartment units' walls. The smoke can also seep through lower door seals or enter from the outside via your door or window seals.
Once these partially combusted particles enter your home, several issues could arise. For one, smoke can solidify when it touches cooler surfaces such as your walls, ceilings, or contents. Secondly, smoke can also become the source of unpleasant, burnt smells. Microscopic smoke particles can penetrate deep into your porous items like your upholstered furniture or carpets and cause malodor particles to linger.
We can help restore your home after fire-related issues in the following ways:
- Fire Debris Removal
- Fire and Smoke Remediation
- Water and Fire Damage Restorations
- Setting Up Thermal or Ultra-Low Volume (ULV) Foggers
- Running Ozone Generators
- Packing Out and Cleaning Contents
- Cleaning Soot Residues from Walls and Ceilings
When dealing with smoke-related problems, the first step our SERVPRO technicians take is to remove any soot residues present. If foul odors still exist, we can use foggers to break deodorants into microscopic particles to mimic how the smoke traveled.
If you ever notice smoke entering your apartment from an adjacent unit, call SERVPRO of Hockessin / Elsmere at (302) 992-0104.
