Do Small Home Fires in Little Ferry Need Professional Restoration Services?

Fire raging in domestic kitchen at night SERVPRO of Hackensack / Little Ferry at (201) 742-5920 stands ready 24/7 to support local properties with fire damage.

Soot and smoke damage can spread throughout your Little Ferry home quickly, so bringing in SERVPRO to halt the issue should be priority number one

When a small exterior fire or a kitchen blaze that did minimal damage in a Little Ferry home occurs, the first impulse many homeowners have is to clean up the mess and replace the siding or sheetrock that received charring. However, in many cases, this works against the property owner because the fire odor remains as the soot and smoke residues did not get adequately removed. Some of the main issues with soot remaining in the home are:
    •    Soot particles can exist smaller than the eye can see and produce pungent odors anywhere they are in the home
    •    This particulate can get spread through the ductwork and foot traffic in the home
    •    Soot can be a potential skin and respiratory irritant for some people
    •    If not removed quickly, soot can pit and mar chrome and metal fixtures

What is the Best Method to Remove Fire Damage?
When SERVPRO techs clean up and restore Little Ferry homes with fire damage, the equipment and applications used depend on the type of smoke damage left behind; there is no single "best method." Dry smoke does not cling to surfaces in the same manner as wet smoke residues apply themselves, requiring the use of solvent-based cleaning agents to release its grip.

Also, care needs to get taken to match the cleaning solution to the type of surface or material getting cleaned to ensure the agent chosen will not harm the article getting cleaned. That is why the SERVPRO techs give detailed attention to testing fibers and learning the manufacturing components of items before cleaning, so it gets done right for the best outcome.
