Cleaning Up Smoke Damage in Pottsville Properties

Smoke and soot are formidable after a fire gets extinguished. With the high pressure created during combustion, soot and smoke residues can get forced into crevices and seams and plastered to vertical surfaces. Cleaning up after these conditions involves a combination of many remediation solutions beginning with chemical sponges and other dry cleaning choices. Wet cleaning is also possible with solvents and detergents when the present soil is deemed safe to clean in this manner, and more damage would not result. 

Fire and Smoke Damage Odor Threats in Pottsville Homes

Another considerable obstacle for responding technicians to fire recovery is lingering odors produced by the combustion of specific fuels and materials. Overcoming these harsh smells can be challenging even with the advanced tools and products available to our experienced SERVPRO professionals. Clearing foul post-fire odors use foggers, hydroxyl machines, and ozone generators.

Our Fire Restoration Process

Every fire damage event is a little different and requires a unique solution, but the general process stays the same. The steps listed below illustrate our process for the “typical” fire damage emergency.

Step 1: Emergency Contact

We are available 24 hours, 7 days a week. When you call, one of our representatives will ask a series of questions about the fire damage to your home or business. This information helps us respond immediately with all the needed equipment and resources.

Step 2: Inspection and Fire Damage Assessment

We determine the scope of the fire and smoke damage by examining the affected areas and by testing the adjoining rooms for smoke and soot damage. An accurate assessment is crucial to the planning process. 

Step 3: Immediate Board-Up and Roof-Tarp Service (if needed)

In many fire damage cases, it’s necessary to board up missing windows and walls and to place tarps on a damaged roof. This helps to maintain security and to protect against further damage. 

Step 4: Water Removal and Drying (if water damage is present)

The water removal process begins almost immediately and removes the majority of the water. We then use dehumidifiers and air movers to remove the remaining water and complete the drying process. 

Step 5: Removal of Smoke and Soot from All Surfaces

We use specialized equipment and techniques to remove smoke and soot from ceilings, walls, and other surfaces. 

Step 6: Cleaning and Sanitizing

Any restorable items will be cleaned and sanitized. We’ll use a variety of specialized cleaning techniques to restore your belongings to pre-fire condition. Our professionals will also remove smoke and other odors using advanced air scrubbing equipment and fogging devices with deodorizers.

Step 7: Restoration

Restoration is the final step—getting your home or business to its pre-fire condition. Restoration may involve minor repairs, such as replacing drywall, painting, and installing new carpet; or it may entail major repairs such as the reconstruction of various areas or rooms in a home or business.
