Fire Damage Cleanup Is Much More Than Removing Smoke Residues in Raleigh Properties

Many consumers believe fire damage in Raleigh homes and buildings is limited to smoke damage and lingering smoke residues. There are three main types of damage related to fires that can impact different rooms. The actual harm from the fire is usually limited to the immediate area of the fire. Damage from high heat is included. The second type is water and chemical damage caused when firefighters put out the fire. The third is smoke damage which can be found throughout the home in various concentrations depending on air currents and proximity to the fire.

SERVPRO provides fire damage restoration in Raleigh, covering all three types of fire damage.

  • Fire damage, including structural and heat damage
  • Water and fire retardant damage
  • Smoke damage, including residue removal, discoloration, and smoke odor removal

Damage caused by the flames and heat can cause various materials to melt, warp, and burn, destroying them. We use controlled demolition techniques to remove these items and any structural materials damaged by the fire.

Water and fire retardants can damage areas of the home untouched by the fire. Furniture and other items must be cleaned and dried quickly to avoid secondary damage from water absorption and mold growth. Doors and windows are often broken during the fire and must be boarded up to prevent additional damage caused by the local environment.

Smoke particles and odors vary depending on the temperature of the fire and the material burned in the fire. These particles are usually distributed throughout the building requiring cleaning of every surface and all contents using the appropriate techniques for the type of smoke residue.

Our highly skilled IICRC-certified technicians assess the damage, contain the area to prevent further secondary damage and provide cleaning, restoration, or replacement of contents and structures damaged by the fire.
