January 6th, 2017 · No Comments

Fires are destructive and can quickly engulf your home. After a fire is extinguished, the first thing you should do is hire a professional fire damage cleanup firm to restore your home and prevent further damage. ServiceMaster Metropolitan is proud to serve the residents of Fairfield, NJ, or anywhere throughout Northern New Jersey with our comprehensive fire damage restoration services.

Oftentimes, homeowners try to perform fire damage repair on their own instead of hiring a professional firm like ServiceMaster Metropolitan, but this can lead to further damage. Today we’ll talk about the importance of hiring professionals for fire damage restoration.


Why Should Fire Damage Restoration Only be Performed by Trained and Certified Professionals?

There are many important elements to treating fire damage that you may not be aware of. The professionals at ServiceMaster Metropolitan have been thoroughly trained and are certified to treat the different factors of fire damage, including:


  • Removal of Smoke Odor

Our restoration technicians will perform an examination to locate the materials and belongings that are causing smoke odor in the house. The next step involves judging whether these things can be properly cleaned or need to be discarded. Technicians will utilize their experience and knowledge to make these determinations.

The next step consists of cleaning all the surfaces to remove smoke and soot residue that is causing smoke odor in the home. Finally, different odor counteractants will be used to completely remove lingering smoke odor.

As a homeowner, you will not have the knowledge of these techniques or access to the required equipment to perform this level of odor removal on your own.


  • Selection of Cleaning Methods

Our experienced professionals have the required expertise to judge the type of fire that damaged your home so the appropriate cleaning methods can be selected for the specific damages caused by the fire.

For instance, low alkali detergents are more useful when treating damage from a high oxygen fire, whereas restoration technicians will use a high alkali detergent if your home was damaged in a low oxygen fire.

Moreover, soot will spread further if a dry sponge is utilized for cleaning residues left by a low oxygen fire. Experienced fire damage remediation professionals will ensure the right procedures, tools, and products are used for proper cleanup.


The Benefits of Hiring Certified Professionals

There are many benefits when you hire experienced, trained, and certified professionals for fire damage clean up, including:

  • Up-to-date training
  • Health and safety certification
  • Years of experience
  • Required insurance and licenses
  • Necessary tools and equipment
