My Raleigh Home Smells of Holiday Cheer… and Smoke!

As we welcome Fall, we start to change our homes into their end-of-year persona. We carve pumpkins, take pictures of changing leaves, and start burning candles smelling of cinnamon and apple. The whole air smells of holiday celebrations and gatherings with friends. However, you may suddenly smell more than that, only to realize that one of your candles ignites a nearby decoration, provoking flames and leaving you to rush for an extinguisher to put them out. As you survey the fire damage, it does not look quite catastrophic, but undoubtedly severe.

Thankfully, homeowners in Raleigh facing fire damage can call SERVPRO for assistance. Even when the fire in your home is not worthy of a fire truck, the remaining soot and smoke can be enough to puzzle even the most resourceful homeowner. Before you decide to apply cleaning products to your furniture and walls, consult with a professional team like ours to protect yourself from causing more damage to unsuitable abrasive cleaners.

Our SERVPRO fire restoration technicians (FRT) hold certifications by the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning, and Restoration Certification (IICRC) to address situations like yours. Apart from our expertise in the field, we have the technical framework to inform our action plans, and we apply them as soon as we arrive at your home. All you need to do is call our 24/7 hotline and allow our team to jump into action.

An essential step in cleaning each surface in your home includes understanding the nature of each one of them. A wood credenza does not burn in the same way your electronics do or your carpets. Knowing which chemical solution and cleaning tool to use with each item is the key to a successful restoration. Most homeowners fail at this step and end up aggravating the fire damage, ultimately damaging some items. When we restore your home effectively, we can save the value of your property, both actual and sentimental. All you need to do is rely on our expertise and allow us to work to your benefit.

SERVPRO of North Raleigh & Wake Forest is an expert resource ready to work for you when there is fire damage to your home. Call our team at (919) 790-1222 and let us prepare your home for the holiday season. With our help, your home can look, “Like it never even happened.”
