March 31st, 2017 · No Comments

Has your home in West Orange, NJ or elsewhere in Northern New Jersey been damaged by a fire? Not sure whether to perform fire damage restoration on your own or hire professionals for this task? Here are two major benefits of hiring a professional firm, such as ServiceMaster Metropolitan, to tackle the challenging task of fire damage restoration.

#1: Knowledge of Appropriate Cleanup Procedures

Fire damage restoration professionals are exactly that; professionals. They’re trained in the proper procedures for cleaning your belongings to prevent further damage. For Example:

  • Leather Goods: Experienced technicians know that drying leather goods straight under the sun can cause further damage. Therefore, they take the required steps to ensure these items dry properly
  • Documents and Books: Just drying the books is not enough since pages will crinkle during drying. Fire damage restoration professionals ensure that documents and books are properly piled and sufficiently pressed to avoid unsightly crinkling
  • Textile Materials: Experts are also aware of the steps they have to follow while cleaning your textile materials. For instance, technicians ensure that textile materials are thoroughly deodorized before any type of cleaning is performed, otherwise smoke odors will remain in those materials



#2: Equipment and Techniques to Remove Smoke Odor

Professional restorers ensure that your home is completely returned to its pre-loss condition by taking the following steps for complete smoke odor removal:

  • Step I – Trace and Remove Odor Sources: The first thing experts will do is discard items that have become primary sources of smoke odor in your home, like unsalvageable debris. This step is essential since, apart from causing smoke odor in your home, these items can continue to contaminate parts of your home that have already been cleaned
  • Step II – Sealing Inaccessible Surfaces: Experts know that inaccessible or scorched surfaces can lead to progressive contamination. As such, they will use sealers to seal off those surfaces, trapping the smoke odor, and preventing it from spreading
