SERVPRO Can Help You Clean-Up Smoke and Soot Damage after a Fire

7/1/2019 (Permalink)

Have you been the victim of a fire?  Here a SERVPRO of Hackensack / Little Ferry, we know that every fire disaster is different. Some fires produce a lot of smoke, while others involve intense flames that leave lots of soot and ash in their wake.

Whatever kind of fire damage you’re dealing with, we know that what’s most important is that your recover as much as you can as quickly as possible.

Our team at SERVPRO of Hackensack / Little Ferry approach every scenario with a “restore first” mentality – and our specialized training and equipment makes it possible for us to restore your property to its pre-fire state as well and as quickly as is possible.


If a chemical fire extinguisher or water was used to put out your fire, we will remove any standing water and dry out the affected area as quickly as possible. Sometimes, some of the worst damage in the wake of a fire is the water damage that comes from the firefighting efforts.


Once everything is dry, we vacuum up as much of the ash and soot. Remember that smoke often extends further than the flames, so we make sure to clean in areas nearby to where the fire hit. 


Once the loose ash and soot is cleaned up, we ventilate the affected area.


It’s typical for soot and smoke to settle on surfaces in the form of an oily powder. SERVPRO specializes in and has special solutions to clean this residue from your home.

If you’re ever in need of fire damage restoration assistance, you can rest assured knowing that our team here at SERVPRO of Hackensack / Little Ferry is always close by and able to help!
