Fire Restoration Starts with Basic Principles

While many variables can make every fire damage cleanup and recovery situation unique, at its core, handling post-fire effects is a matter of basic principles. Early mitigation and focused cleaning can help restore your home to preloss condition.

The Principles of Smoke Damage Cleanup

Multiple factors shape the necessary fire restoration in Indianapolis homes. Cleaning after extinguishment means overcoming smoke damage in several forms across many surfaces. We can choose the best cleaning implement with early discovery action:

  • Inspection of the Work Area - We must determine the extent of the damage and the severity of heaped debris to choose the ideal restoration solution to help. 
  • Smoke Residue Identification - Knowing the type of smoke damage residue can also help choose the best cleaning approach. For instance, wet and dry smoke damages require significantly different restoration solutions. 
  • Affected Surfaces - Understanding the affected material can influence the type of cleaning practice chosen to help. It is always our intention to preserve and protect underlying substrates when possible. 
  • Capturing and Removing Residues - We have several products intended to emulsify particles still on surfaces after brushing or vacuuming. 

Smoke Odor Removal After Fires

Another potentially challenging aspect of fire damage restoration and remediation is removing smoke odors. Combustion burns many materials, some releasing aerosolized odor compounds that are offensive and overwhelming in the affected space. We have several deodorization practices and products to help, but oxidation and processes like pairing with wet fogging equipment are among the most effective. 

With multiple types of smoke damage and the different ways it can impact your home, it is crucial to have a team prepared with various mitigation and restoration solutions. You can count on the swift arrival of our SERVPRO of Indianapolis South team to help when your home gets damaged. Call us at (317) 784-3008.
