Voorhees Fire Damage Recovery: What to Expect from Professionals

Recovering from the effects of a household fire is an experience with which most residents have no personal experience. After a fire breaks out in your home, finding reliable professionals who know the steps to minimize the harm and jump-start the restoration is crucial. Ordinary cleaning tactics do not fit the bill, but our Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC)-trained crews have efficient strategies that do. 

A surprise for many Voorhees fire damage victims is the significant water damage faced. Water, and to a lesser extent, chemicals, are the primary means used by firefighters to knock out a blaze. Water damage is just as or more destructive as fire damage, and when combined, the water damage must resolve first. Slip and fall risks and the risk of electrical shock in wet areas are two reasons why our full-service disaster recovery company responds immediately to your water removal and structural drying needs. Building materials left wet longer than 24 to 48 hours are prime mold breeding habitats, pushing for speedy water remediation. 

Certified Fire Damage Restoration Specialists

SERVPRO employees often hold more than one certification from the IICRC, so we make sure the crew at your home includes Fire and Smoke Restoration Technicians (FSRT). Completing the course prepares our team to implement industry best practices and technical procedures for completing the remediation of fire and smoke damaged environment. 

We match products and methodology to ensure the range of sooty residues presented resolve without worsening the damage. Paper and wood burn hot and fast, leaving ash that vacuums, brushes, and dry sponges off. Fires that smolder, slower-burning with heavy smoke, include electrical or fabric-fueled events. The thick, sticky soot deposited leads SERVPRO employees to use agitation and cleaning products with surfactants and wetting agents to dislodge. 

Kitchen fires are frequent, and the protein-based soot resulting from grease or food fire is thin, very foul-smelling, and tightly adhered to surfaces. SERVPRO employees use solvents and abrasive tools to loosen the bond. 

SERVPRO of Haddon Heights / Voorhees stands ready to assist homeowners with the complexities of fire damage remediation. For a fast response and a team that inspires confidence, call (856) 566-3388.
