Rebuilding Your Raleigh Home after Fire Damage with SERVPRO

A fire is one of the most destructive elements of nature and can turn a habitable Raleigh home into a heap of dust within a short time. Even though there are proactive methods to control the destruction of the house, you cannot snub the damage that may have already occurred. Not only do the flames from a fire cause charring on things like cabinets, but you would be looking at the smoke, which causes widespread damage. The smoke penetrates carpets, clothing, furniture, upholstery, and other porous materials.

The ultimate goal of fire restoration in damaged Raleigh homes is to reinstate the property and contents to pre-incident condition, leaving a clean and safe environment. If cleaning is not done properly, the smoke odor lingers, and further ruin can occur to your contents and structure. SERVPRO professionals start by evaluating the situation, including the extent of the damage, to know what they are dealing with. Depending on the situation, our crews can use onsite and offsite techniques to restore your home.

Onsite restoration may include the removal of odor particles using the following:

Only some restoration projects require a pack out. Some contents can be manipulated and cleaned within their respective spaces. SERVPRO crews might even clean items onsite and then move them to a designated area that has not been affected to be stored. However, when cleanup requires multiple treatments, contents could be packed and taken to the Franchise warehouse for cleaning.

Types of surfaces requiring detailed cleaning include:

  • Wood surfaces
  • Porcelain fixtures
  • Metal surfaces
  • Plastics and synthetic surfaces
