Never Panic After Experiencing Fire Damage

After experiencing fire damage, there specific professional services which can help to lower the costs of a claim. Restoration services work towards reducing the number of replacements which may be necessary after such incidents. If you live in Chicago, apart from being prepared to counter such situations, knowing your options counts and there is every reason to treat such issues with the urgency they deserve.

Let us begin by understanding the underlying cleaning principles that our SERVPRO technicians employ when dealing with fire damage in Chicago. When we are working for you, we always aim to return the materials to their preloss state, and we start off by inspecting the area and locating the smoke residues. When carrying out the inspection, we usually begin from the place where the fire originates from and analyze how far the smoke particles have moved.

After locating the smoke residues, it is time to identify the kind of smoke residues at the site. Given that fire consumes different types of materials, there is a possibility of finding a number of smoke particles within the same location. That helps our SERVPRO technicians to choose a suitable cleaning procedure. Before the cleaning process starts, it is equally important to identify the surface type. While some surfaces can allow abrasive cleaning methods, some area can deteriorate further if we subject them to such cleaning methods.

Certain restoration cases require move-outs before the restoration starts. Our SERVPRO team readily moves your items to a remote location if such a process is likely to protect your contents from further damage. On the same like, there are specific items such as guns, ammunition, and jewelry that we encourage owners to remove from the site before our team can start working.

Odors are a big challenge after a fire, and our team performs deodorization to neutralize the smells. To spread the deodorants, we may either use thermal foggers or ULV (Ultra Low Volume) Foggers. The equipment can also apply disinfectants and fungicides which help prevent chances of bacteria and fungi growth.

SERVPRO of Hyde Park / E. Bridgeport / Bronzeville is a proven leader in fire, mold, storm, and water damage restoration. Call us today at (312) 509-5000 when you need us to make it “Like it never even happened.”
