SERVPRO Provides Complete Fire and Smoke Damage Restoration

With the colder weather here in Montgomery, many families are turning to their fireplaces to add warmth and atmosphere to their homes. It is perfect for keeping utility costs low while keeping the family toasty and warm. However, this convenient form of heat has its drawbacks, including dangerous fire hazards which could damage your whole home. It is essential to do preventative maintenance on your fireplace and chimney each year to prevent accidents from occurring.
 
If your fireplace has caused fire damage to your Montgomery home, the effects can be daunting and overwhelming. What once was your cozy shelter from the world is now possibly unsafe and significantly marred. The professionals at SERVPRO are ready to help you return your home to its usual state and get you back in a safe, warm sanctuary as quickly as possible.
 
Not every fire leaves the same level of damage behind. With a minor fire, smoke residues affect specific areas or rooms only. The smoke residues are light to moderate, and restoration could involve dry cleaning and wet cleaning of walls, ceilings, flooring, and possessions.
 
The amount of smoke residues is moderate after medium fire damage, with wet cleaning being more needed to get rid of residues. Areas needing repainting and items needing replacement increase. We may need to refinish flooring, too. Heat damage to cabinets, drywall, and contents means more materials to replace. Smoke odors are noticeable, so SERVPRO techs have to deodorize the home and items in it.
 
After a major incidence, fire and heat damage are severe near the source of the fire. Charring may be present on structural framing and finishes, which could mean structural repairs. Smoke residues are spread throughout a large portion of your home, and the odors from smoke are strong and quite pungent. We may need to board up the home, establish a source of electricity, winterize the building, and get rid of smoke-filled and charred debris. Extensive cleaning of the structure is done by our techs as well, and we might need to remove salvageable contents off-site for cleaning. SERVPRO features extensive experience in pack-out, cleaning, and storing of your belongings. Multiple methods of deodorization are used to get rid of smoke odors. Thermal fogging, ozone machines, and hydroxyl generators are techniques and equipment deployed for this purpose.
 
SERVPRO of Montgomery South realizes that fire damage remediation is multi-faceted, and we have the tools and experience to go through each step. Residents in the areas of Downtown, Wynlakes, and Matthews can trust us to thoroughly take care of your home after a fire when you call us at (334) 284-1612.
