Fire Damage Remediation in Stafford: Should You Use Professionals or DIY?

7/18/2019 (Permalink)

It is tempting to want to make fire remediation a DIY if the fire is small. But you need the correct equipment and cleaners to complete the job.

What Tools Professionals Use for Fire Loss in Stafford Homes 

Fire recovery can take many different forms for Stafford homes, and more specifically, for those homeowners working on trying and overcoming loss effects on their own. It is not impossible for property owners to restore fire loss damages without training and restoration experience, but having the right equipment is essential. The more prepared you can be for these disasters, the less likely they are to spread and get completely out of control. 

Fire damage in Stafford homes can appear in many different ways from soot and smoke residues to air quality concerns, structural compromise, and degradation. Addressing even one of these challenges can be difficult without the appropriate equipment and tools that can help. Our SERVPRO technicians arrive at every fire loss emergency with the full measure of our mitigation and recovery tools, products, and devices. We know how important it is to get the situation contained and displaced families back in the property, so there is no delay in getting cleanup and restoration started. 

Recovery for these emergencies is multi-faceted and should often get completed by competent and qualified professionals like our SERVPRO team.  Here are some of the tools that can help you to make a positive difference quickly in your fire-damaged home: 

  • Thermal/UV Fogger – These vital tools can help to immediately address odor concerns, even in soft materials like clothing and fabrics. These machines release a dense chemical compound that breaks apart foul odor molecules on contact. 
  • Chemical Sponges – These cleaning implements are vital for clearing away soot and smoke residues (wet smoke) after a loss incident. Traditional cleaning methods can lead to smearing and staining of this coating. 
  • Hydroxyl Generators – These machines are two-fold by both helping to filter out a substantial amount of hazardous debris and particulates from the air inside of your home and working also to address lingering odor concerns as well. 

Whether you choose to handle fire loss effects on your own or seek the experience of our SERVPRO of North Stafford County team, we are always available. Call us at (540) 720-1535.
