Call SERVPRO to Restore Your Home or Business and Minimize the Damage after a Fire
Fires in a home or business can be dangerous and frightening at the same time. Acting quickly is key to salvaging your residential or commercial property and belongings. Getting out quickly and calling your local fire department is the best way to minimize structural damage. Also, contacting fire damage restoration specialists right away is the best way to restore the affected area. Plus, calling professionals can help save many of your belongings that were not lost in the fire.
SERVPRO technicians are experienced in fire damage cleanup in Alexandria. They arrive at your home or business ready to conduct a full inspection. Luckily, the firemen put out the fire rather quickly. Thankfully, damage to the structure and to most of the belongings is minimal. However, it is unfortunate that there is much smoke in the attic and soot on the walls, floor, and ceiling. Our technicians are trained to remove unsalvageable items such as burned-out boxes, charred furniture and clothing. Saved items are cleaned, sanitized and preserved.
We suggest that you do not wash or wipe down the walls, floor or ceiling. Leave that to our expert fire damage team. Also, try not to turn on the lights or ceiling fans because the electrical wiring may be damaged. We also suggest that if any clothing has smoke damage that you allow us to clean them for you because normal laundering or dry cleaning will not eliminate strong smoke odors. You can rely on us to thoroughly inspect the entire attic to determine the level of damage, which includes fire, smoke and soot damage. SERVPRO technicians can perform minor repairs such as boarding a missing window to protect the affected area of the home. For big carpenter jobs, we call a general contractor.
Our certified SERVPRO team is well experienced in fire damage restoration. Industrial air scrubbers, fans, and fogging equipment quickly remove offensive smoke odors. Also, industrial cleansers wash soot and dirt from the walls, floors, and ceiling. Items affected by the fire are cleaned with our powerful and effective odor removal products that neutralize and fully remove pungent and lingering smoke odors.
When possible, SERVPRO of Alexandria can restore your fire damaged home to its preloss condition. It is our goal to make you feel “Like it never even happened.” Contact us 24/7 at (318) 427-7511.
