SERVPRO Starts the Remediation Process Quickly After a Fire for Best Results

Outdated outlets, wiring, and appliances can cause a blaze in your home and then leave fire damage behind. When it comes to the safety of your home, it is always best to check the plugs of your old appliances for damage or potential fire hazards. While harder to detect, it is also possible for outdated and faulty outlets in old homes to cause electrical fires. However, despite caution accidents can still occur. It is important to know that when these accidents happen, help is nearby.
While you may be tempted to wait and think about your options after your Durham home suffers fire damage, it is never a good idea to hesitate. Soot adheres to surfaces with the help of the heat from fire; the longer it stays in contact with whatever it is attached to, the more damage it can do. Soot can discolor your wooden cabinets and expensive countertops. Ashes can get inside of your vents and stove. Leaving the damage alone for too long can result in the loss of your belongings. It is best to get professionals into your home quickly so they can inspect the damage and get the remediation process going.
SERVPRO can use advanced technology to handle the soot, ashes, and odor left behind by the blaze. We can sand down the smoke off of your wooden cabinets and, afterward, they can be refinished to restore them to their pre-fire condition. Our SERVPRO techs can employ the use of thermal foggers to address the odor that clings to your kitchen. Thermal foggers trap the particles in that air that cause the odor and neutralize them. Lastly, SERVPRO can make sure to clean any ash from the vents in your kitchen.
Do not delay when you have a small fire in your home. Dial (603) 868-3343 to contact SERVPRO of Durham. No matter what time, we can take your call.
