Fires often result in significant property damage. That’s why it’s so important to hire a professional fire damage restoration firm, such as ServiceMaster Metropolitan, to evaluate the damage and restore your home to its pre-loss condition. ServiceMaster Metropolitan has proudly served Hackensack, NJ, and all of Northern New Jersey for many years. Our training and experience allows us to quickly and effectively treat different types of fire damage in your home.

Fire damage cleanup is a very challenging and complex process. Let’s look at some of the challenges our experts face while restoring a home.

Evaluating the Type of Fire

Did you know there are different types of fires and fire damage? Determining this is an essential step to ensure the restoration efforts are effective and don’t cause additional damage.

For example, our technicians will be able to easily clean smoke residues in the case of a high-oxygen fire, as the residue will be quite dry. However, smoke residues left by a low-oxygen fire will be wet and therefore more difficult to clean.

Additionally, if the fire was extinguished by water, there will be high levels of humidity in the home. This high humidity will cause the pores in wood to open up, resulting in increased smoke absorption.

Challenges of Smoke Damage Cleanup

Our fire damage restoration professionals take great care to remove smoke damage from your home and ensure there are no lingering odors after restoration work is completed.

To effectively remove smoke odors form your home, our experts take the following steps:

  • Remove Source of Odor: We understand that to remove smoke odors, we need to start at the source. This means taking objects affected by smoke odor to an offsite location to be cleaned separately. This step alone significantly reduces the odors in your home
  • Use Proper Cleaning Methods: Cleaning objects affected by smoke damage can’t be achieved by simple soap and water. Depending on the object and the type of smoke, our technicians determine which techniques and products will be most effective. By using advanced techniques such as ozone treatment and specialized equipment like hydroxyl generators and thermal foggers, our technicians are able to achieve the best results
  • Use of Sealants: After cleanup is complete, our experts use sealants to seal different surfaces, such as framing, to ensure odors do not leak out of those surfaces

If your home has experienced fire damage, contact the professionals at ServiceMaster Metropolitan.
