Fort Collins Property Owners Turn to SERVPRO for Fire Loss Mitigation
Steps to Cleaning Up Fire Damage in Fort Collins
As if the blaze in your home wasn't disastrous enough, the fire damage is not the only problem after the fact. Smoke, soot, and water residue from extinguishing the fire all need to be addressed, not to mention neutralizing the odor.
When you call SERVPRO technicians to your Fort Collins home, they will immediately access the fire damage that requires attention. Our technicians suggest what items can be restored versus replaced, our goal is to help you save money as well as your possessions in every instance.
After the fire, any remaining standing water and wet areas need to be addressed as quickly as possible to avoid warping wood, drywall damage and setting up an environment for mold growth. Depending on the amount of water, our technicians use either portable pumps or industrial truck-mounted units to extract the water quickly. Once the water is out, powerful air-movers are brought in to remove residual moisture from the affected areas in your home. We have state-of-the-art equipment to measure moisture to determine if a room and objects are truly dry or not before the next phase of fire damage cleanup happens.
Smoke and soot not only leave a residue the surfaces of your home but can penetrate objects leaving an unpleasant odor. Your SERVPRO technicians utilize both dry and wet cleaning methods to effectively remove all traces of residues left by the fire while deodorizing. Upholstered items need special consideration to remove all traces of the fire damage, and foam cleaning is often an effective method to restore your furnishings to their preloss condition. A very effective method for removing offensive odors left by the fire and objects soaked by water is the use of fogging. Much like smoke that traveled through areas and saturated the surfaces of your home and possessions, fogging works in the same manner. The mist penetrates a deodorizing cleaning agent to remove offensive odors in your home.
Once the evidence of the fire damage has been neutralized, the technicians can begin restoration. We can replace drywall or carpeting that was too damaged to save through cleaning. Your SERVPRO technicians access every room and give a detailed report of what it can take to return your home to its preloss condition, "Like it never even happened."
