SERVPRO Offer Chicago Residents Fire Damage Cleanup for Disposal and Salvage of a Burnt Property

Are qualifications necessary for fire restoration?

At SERVPRO, our technicians hold qualifications from the Institute of inspection, cleaning, and restoration (IICRC) certifications. Our services assure that the cleanup of your Chicago home is professional, accountable, and expert. Typically, a house fire produces significant amounts of non-salvageable debris. Technicians can identify cleanable, disposable items as well as areas that may require additional inspection through demolition. Accurate assessments can reduce the overall cost of your claim by restoring things rather than resorting to replacements. The restoration process can involve cleaning items back to a usable state or mechanical Esporta washing.

What factors influence fire damage cleanup for Chicago residents?

  • Salvageable contents or structure
  • Non-salvageable contents or structure
  • Demolition to expose hidden areas

Is odor control a part of a restoration?

When we perform fire damage cleanup in your Chicago home, we take responsibility for contents, structure, and indoor air quality. Fire odors can be among the most challenging remnants of a property fire to remove without professional equipment. SERVPRO technicians can bring in portable air-scrubbers to the property to filter out dust or other odor-causing particles. This equipment can be especially in situations where demolition may be necessary to assess the home's inner cavities. If there are signs of smoke damage within the cavity, it may be required to remove porous materials such as insulation from the wall cavities. Equally, we may need to clean interior walls within cavities to ensure that odors do not last beyond the cleanup.

What can other methods be used to control fire odors?

  • Ventilation or air moving device
  • Negative air pressure or vacuuming using high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filters
  • Direct application of deodorant solvents

Bringing a home back to its preloss condition requires expertise and patience. Contact SERVPRO of Hyde Park / E. Bridgeport / Bronzeville at (312) 509-5000.
