SERVPRO Resources Ease Fire Restoration in Teaneck          

Fire threatens structures when burning and even after extinguishing them. That makes it critical to start fire restoration in good time and do it to completion. You need the right resources to restore your Teaneck property to its pre-damaged state. 

Before you attempt fire damage restoration at your Teaneck property, you need to understand what the broad term refers to so that you can plan the process appropriately. Restoration after fire incidents involves removing deteriorated materials, repairing salvageable areas, and cleaning residues like soot ash.

Crucial things to know about the fire restoration process:

  • It is likely to take longer than you expect
  • It can involve additional procedures that you may not associate with fire
  • It requires proper documentation

Many fires in homes are controlled before they consume the entire structure. Therefore, you might expect a quick restoration process allowing you to resume the ordinary life you enjoy before the fire. However, the process may take weeks or months because of the broadness of actions required to fix the damages. At the onset, protecting the structure or contents is essential. Tearing down materials, capturing soils, and drying any moisture accumulating in materials is also time-consuming. More time goes towards finishing processes such as deodorization and refinishing surfaces. SERVPRO crews help plan and execute these procedures.

Resources needed to complete fire restoration:

  • Hand and power tools to help teardown materials safely
  • Agitation tools to help dislodge soils from surfaces
  • Different chemical agents that break down soils and odors
  • Moisture management equipment

For a process involving several steps, it is possible to overlook some things when undocumented. Our SERVPRO crews start by evaluating the damage thoroughly and recording the problem's extent. We can assign the right technical skills, equipment, and other resources from the information obtained.

How Ample Resources Expedite Restoration

Resources can shorten the time it takes to complete a task or eliminate some of them. For example, when our SERVPRO crews use ultrasonic cleaners to clean your kitchen items or chandeliers, it takes a short time to clear soot residues leaving them spotless. Also, soda blasting unfinished surfaces removes embedded soot and odors.
