Fire Damage Avoid Obvious Mistakes When Fire Damage Occurs in Your Keene Home Attempting to clean fire damage on your own can cause further damage to your home.

Rely on Professionals for Proper Fire Damage Remediation

Most of us are anxious to clean our homes after a fire damage incident, but did you know you might waste your time and cause further damage if you do not seek professional assistance? If you are insured, working towards reducing the claims is necessary at this stressing time. Not all buildings in Keene are safe to re-enter after such incidents; it is crucial first to do a pre-inspection.

Our SERVPRO technicians can help you prevent further fire damage in your Keene property. If there is some water on your property, we work towards drying the area. We achieve this by installing fans and ventilation in the rooms. If the incident took place during warm weather, we could run a dehumidifier once we have shut all the windows. Sometimes when the weather is cold, we can opt to operate your heating system, and the cold air can help in moisture removal.

If you fail to thoroughly dry draperies, floors underneath and carpets, mold can start to grow and lead to permanent damage. We also know that copper and brass can corrode after exposure to smoke, so we use a copper cleaner to do the cleaning. As a safety measure, we wrap furniture legs using aluminum foil and remove oriental rugs from wet carpeting.

Soot is oily and to protect your household textiles, draperies and carpets from possible stains, our SERVPRO team attempts to remove it before deodorizing and cleaning items. When removing it, we may hold an operating vacuum cleaner nozzle just above the area with the stain. We avoid using an upright vacuum or vacuum attachments since the soot may be forced into the fabrics by the brushes.

Our team from SERVPRO also performs deodorization to remove smoke odor from draperies, carpets, and upholstered furniture. The deodorants that thermal foggers dispense eliminate the odors by neutralizing and breaking up their molecules.

SERVPRO of Cheshire County is an industry leader in commercial and residential restoration. Call us at (603) 352-7251 when you need remediation services, and we can make it "Like it never even happened."
