Our Professionals Are Your Best Option After A Fire In Your Chicago
Restoration Of Fire Damage In Chicago Is Easier With Professional Assistance
Homeowners leaving stoves unattended when cooking, and other simple oversights can lead to severe fire damage. The time it takes to mount a response determines the level of damage, so in many cases, such incidents only affect items in the vicinity. A delayed response can spread the damage to other parts of the house or even bring down the entire structure. Seeking professional help after extinguishing the fire presents a better chance of restoring the home to its preloss state.
Since the dynamics in each incidence of fire damage in Chicago differ, there is a need for a thorough evaluation before taking any steps to restore the affected property. Evaluation can help establish the percentage of the property affected, the types of residues left, and the kinds of debris left. We have IICRC certified technicians who can handle such evaluation with ease.
A thorough cleanup exercise is another crucial step in the restoration process. This step involves several processes including removal of debris for cleanup or disposal, removal of residues, and extraction of water or other firefighting agents. Our SERVPRO crew separates debris into categories of salvageable, unsalvageable and questionable items thus removing everything from the affected area. We dispose of the unsalvageable items and set aside the others for cleanup or further evaluation. We use different drying equipment to remove any water remnants from the area affected by the incident.
Fires can be very destructive to the structure or fixtures such as cabinets especially when affected directly by the flames. Even when not completely burned, the flames can affect their structural integrity or finishes. Our SERVPRO technicians inspect the level of damage and decide whether replacement, refinishing or restorative cleaning would fix the problem. Restorative cleaning reduces the overall cost of fixing the damage. We use various approaches including soda blasting and dry ice blasting during restorative cleaning exercises because such methods do not cause additional damages.
