May 17th, 2017 · No Comments

If your home in Clifton, NJ, or anywhere across Northern New Jersey has been damaged in a fire, you’ll need to initiate fire damage restoration quickly to prevent further damage to your home and belongings. Today we’ll explore the importance of hiring the professionals at ServiceMaster Metropolitan to treat fire damage, and how we can effectively remove smoke residues and smoke odors from your home.

Why Hire Professionals for Fire Damage Remediation?

Analyze the Nature of the Fire

Our fire damage restoration professionals analyze the type of fire that impacted your home to better understand its effects. For example, a confined or smoldering fire will leave a thick smoke odor for our technicians to treat.

With this type of fire, smoke will seep into your belongings, like the padding in upholstered furniture, and cause discoloration or permanent stains.

Our experts will use their experience to determine whether an item can be salvaged and, if it can, the appropriate cleaning methods based on the type of fire that occurred.

Evaluate Residue to Determine Appropriate Smoke Odor Removal Method

Our fire damage restoration experts will utilize their knowledge and experience to understand the types of smoke residues in your home.

This will help them decide which odor mitigation technique will be the most effective for removing smoke odors from things such as walls and upholstered furniture.

Understanding of Different Smoke Residue Categories

Professionals divide smoke residues into 3 categories which helps them determine the appropriate treatment required. These categories are:

  • Light smoke residues
  • Moderate smoke odors and residues
  • Severe smoke residues and odor

Our experts use the following methods to treat upholstered furniture, depending on the category of smoke residue:

  • Light Smoke Residues: Thorough vacuuming of affected surfaces and the use of a water-based smoke deodorant to remove smoke odors from upholstered items
  • Moderate Smoke Odors and Residues: The complexity of the cleaning will increase when there is a moderate amount of smoke odors and residues. Our technicians will perform deodorization, such as fogging the location with a smoke counteractant before actual cleaning is performed, to achieve the best results
  • Severe Smoke Residues and Odor: Our experts will know they’re dealing with a severe smoke problem when smoke odors remain, even after a smoke counteractant is used during the cleaning process. In such situations they’ll utilize their knowledge to spray-deodorize surfaces plus vacuum from top to bottom to achieve the most effective cleaning and deodorization
