Smoke Coming out Window Fire damage can cause long-term effects and reduce your property’s value if action is delayed.

SERVPRO Technicians in East Brunswick Can Handle the Fire Damage in a Home Competently.

The secondary damages of fire can lead to costly repairs. The smoke and soot residues can cause discoloration on various surfaces, and the charcoal-like odor can last for an extended period. SERVPRO technicians in East Brunswick have thorough training in handling fire damage of any size or scope.

How Long Does The Restoration Process Take?

Various variables and services are involved in restoring East Brunswick homes with fire damage. Thus, it is challenging to predict how long it can take to complete the restoration process. However, once you contact our technicians, we can inspect your property to determine the damage’s intensity. With that, we can predict how long it can take us to restore your property to its pre-fire damage condition.

Can I Clean The Affected Area Myself?

It is essential not to attempt cleaning any affected surface if you do not have the necessary skills. Handling the task yourself can cause more damage and lead to massive losses. Also, cleaning affected surfaces involves a few steps that can challenge property owners without the right skills and experience. It involves:

  • Pretesting using the right cleaning products for a specific surface or item.
  • Mixing cleaning solutions with deodorizing agents.
  • Using the correct dilution rates of fire restoration products.

Our cleaning systems and approved products can clean the affected surfaces better than home remedies and cleaning agents.

Should I involve a general contractor instead of a professional restorer?

General contractors do not have restoration expertise and the right equipment to restore properties after fire damage. Fire damage restoration is technical and requires thorough training and experience since a tiny oversight can lead to severe damage.

Can You Clean My Carpet?

With decades of experience, we have perfected various techniques for cleaning different surfaces. We understand that soot and smoke residues can settle on your carpet, and when mixed with water, the solution can stain the carpet. Our technicians can use a natural fabric brightener, a reducing bleach agent mixed with shampoo super concentrate, to clean oxidized stains from your carpet.

How Do You Clean Appliances?

Appliances are often made of nonabsorbent materials such as metal, plastic, glass, Formica, and composite materials. Therefore, our SERVPRO team can use water-based detergent solutions to clean the surfaces. We can use the wall and all surface cleaners to clean the residues from your appliances. For appliances with wood finishing, we can use wood crème paste to clean the yellowing caused by heat. These products can remove smoke residues without damaging the appliances.

Fire damage can cause long-term effects and reduce your property’s value if action is delayed. Contact SERVPRO of East Brunswick / Princeton Meadows at (732) 432-9800 for help. We’re Faster to Any Size Disaster.
