Fire Homeowners have to deal with many things which may include fire damage. Contact SERVPRO right away.

Agitative and abrasive cleaning methods can reduce cleaning times and make restoration more cost-effective for customers. 

Even though We’re Faster To Any Size Disaster, our SERVPRO team is always looking for ways to make fire loss recoveries more efficient for Chicago homes and businesses. Because cleaning is such a vital part of the restoration of your property after a structure fire, it is crucial to take preventative steps to lessen the severity of residues, soiling, and debris settling on surfaces and contents throughout the residence. 

We have multiple options regarding pretreatment, and all of these options ensure that fire damage restoration for Chicago homes goes as quickly and cost-efficiently as possible. Agitative cleaning efforts are specifically designed to lessen the thickness and severity of residues and soiling present throughout the property after a structure fire. Especially with damages like soot, effectively reducing this threat can protect the occupants of the house and our responding technicians from the health hazards they present.

Among the most popular agitative cleaning steps are:

Is It Faster to Rebuild Than to Restore? 

Assessing the structural integrity of exposed elements in your house is one of the objectives of pre-job scoping. Certain materials can become affected by migrating conditions like smoke residue and soot that will cost more to restore than to replace. Drywall and particle board cabinetry are often within these categories. With the low cost of replacement materials against the expense of restoring these same materials from thick residues, controlled demolition is usually the desired path. We make these decisions based on the most efficient solution to get your property back to preloss condition.

We offer a comprehensive approach to restoring your home after a fire. Give our SERVPRO of Hyde Park / E. Bridgeport / Bronzeville team call whenever disasters strike at (312) 509-5000.
