Fire Cleanup

Many folks today take on tasks as do-it-yourself projects, learning from videos and classes at home improvement stores. Although a DIY approach works for many minor remodeling jobs, landscaping, and the like, fire damage recovery is a job for trained experts. The staff at SERVPRO have the education, experience, and equipment to restore your home safely and completely after a fire.

After a fire damages your Chicago home, it is crucial that all steps deemed necessary by the restoration industry be completed fast. The longer fire damage stands without abatement, the more likely it is that permanent harm to structures, contents, and air quality may make part or all of a home dangerous to inhabit. Our team trains to Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) standards, the benchmarks for safe and efficient procedures to return your home to preloss condition.

Our staff react within hours of your call and arrive with all equipment and specialized products necessary on board our full-service trucks. SERVPRO sends a crew large enough to begin and complete a full-scale fire damage cleanup swiftly before the acid residues of ashes and soot deteriorate building structures, fixtures, and your belongings. The technicians assess for safety first and then design a comprehensive plan that includes cleaning, sealing, and odor removal. Often both chemical and water damage from the firefighting efforts are part of the restoration package. Some structures may be too charred to be restored, and decisions to remove and replace need evidence transmitted to your insurance company to limit your out of pocket costs. We work with you and your insurer.

The technicians we send are proficient in the use of professional grade equipment, certified and experienced. A homeowner trying to accomplish the same with rental steamers or carpet cleaners risks making the situation even worse. SERVPRO employees also assess hidden areas, such as your HVAC system and recesses between and behind walls, under floors, and above ceilings for damage. Even small amounts of fire damage left unabated allow smells to linger and deteriorate the structures attached to them or items near them.

Odor elimination is a particularly complex skill set. Covering up with air fresheners is ineffective and deludes you temporarily that all necessary cleanup is complete. SERVPRO has odor elimination specialists on staff who use a range of strategies to neutralize odors for good.

A fresh smelling, restored home is the result when SERVPRO of Hyde Park / E. Bridgeport / Bronzeville takes on your fire damage restoration. Call (312) 509-5000 immediately after the firefighters leave to get the process started.
