Cleaning and Repairing Fire Damage Properly
Fire damage can stem from even small fires. If you've had something catch fire that was plastic or rubber based, it can quickly melt onto your carpeting or tile floor. While tile is much easier to clean than carpeting because it is less porous, it can still be damaged if cleaning is not done properly. Other parts of your home's interior can also be damaged in small fires that don't necessitate the calling of the fire department.
Middle Georgia homeowners who have mild to severe fire damage need to understand that it is not just the destruction of things from heat and flame, but also soot and smoke that can ruin textile furnishings like carpeting and draperies, as well as the finishes of interior walls and ceilings. These often need cleaning, but sometimes they need repairs, also. Restoring your home to pre-fire damage condition is a priority for us. In addition to our certifications in IICRC methods, we also have extensive experience in damage from all sizes of fires, and in any diverse settings.
We have equipment that can remove evidence of the fire damage, down to the scent of it. We use ozone-producing equipment for this as one of the final steps in fire damage restoration. It wouldn't be complete to simply look clean – we want it to smell clean and fresh, too. Even with small fires, damage can be extensive, and the smell left behind will never go away until the soot that causes it is eliminated. Ozone can do this by bonding with the soot particles, and helping to disintegrate them naturally.
We take pride in our workmanship and in knowing that the customer can live in his or her home again without the smell of smoke, soot, and burned items lingering. If you've had fire damage, please call SERVPRO of Thomaston, Forsyth & Fort Valley at 478-956-1214. We answer calls 24/7, and will set up an appointment for your convenience.
