After A Fire In Your Burlington Home, Our Professionals Can Save Your Damaged Possessions!
Salvaging Contents By Enlisting Professional Fire Damage Restoration Services In Burlington
Households are full of memories and valuables that have been built up over several years or decades. It is why a house fire can be so emotionally taxing for a homeowner who risks losing not only money but sentimental items. Our fire restoration technicians work with a restore over replace mentality that saves expense and possessions that may be irreplaceable. Our professionals communicate with you every step of the way. They can even help you with insurance paperwork by creating an inventory of items and conditions in the home.
A homeowner with fire damage in Burlington may be tempted to restore items themselves using household cleaning products. Unfortunately, on some smoke residues, household products spread staining around or push soots deeper into the material. SERVPRO uses a sublimation method that involves dissolving the soots in a solvent before wiping away both solvent and residue. We pre-test materials to determine whether soiling is oil or water-based and match our chemical agents to suit each type and ensure the best results.
The vast majority of smoke residues left behind by fire are present on walls and ceilings. During cleaning, paintwork may be worn away, especially if the smoke residues require chemical agents to remove. Removing soiling is essential to remove the odor. Still, once the property is clean and dry, a SERVPRO technician can repaint or refinish surfaces to get your home back to its pre-incident condition.
In slow-burning fires, usually the result of a synthetic material combusting, hot smoke can pressure surfaces for an extended period resulting in the wearing away of varnish or other wood finishes. SERVPRO can deploy sand or soda blasting techniques to remove thick soots before refinishing the wood later. At the end of service, our inventory of goods and services can be passed over to your insurance adjuster, reducing paperwork and letting you get back to your everyday life “Like it never even happened.”
A homeowner dealing with soots or smoke residues should prioritize professional restoration services to gain the best chance of restoring contents and structure to a pre-damaged condition. Contact SERVPRO of Bristol at (860) 582-3330 now.
