SERVPRO Offers Willimantic Homeowners Rapid Response and Careful Safety Assessments with Fire Restoration Efforts

When faced with a house fire, homeowners may feel as though the damage is never-ending. No two fire damaged homes are ever the same, so proper fire and smoke remediation calls for a tailored approach. Part of the restoration process must include careful assessment and safety inspections for all involved in the cleanup process. Not only that, but you want to ensure your restoration project also addresses any structural damage that occurred during the fire. SERVPRO features trained IICRC-certified technicians ready to inspect your property while looking for crucial factors that will dictate the restoration outcome.

With any project involving water & fire restorations in Willimantic, our SERVPRO crew chief arrives on the scene to perform the initial assessment. This allows the team to formulate a detailed plan to approach each facet of the project, from debris cleanup and removal to odor control measures.

What About Soot?

Any soot that accumulates during a fire event will include acidity levels leading to soot staining, rust, and corrosion. You also must remain mindful of the indoor air quality (IAQ) throughout your home. As soot settles on textiles, wood, grout, appliances, and carpeting, discoloration may occur. While the level of discoloration and smoke damage varies from one material to the next, our SERVPRO team knows what methods to use to minimize damage, including:

  • Air scrubbers with onboard HEPA filtration help to improve indoor air quality
  • Hydroxyl generators and ozone machines are robust devices for odor elimination
  • Sanding or soda blasting may get done to remove tough smoke deposits on walls, beams, and other surfaces
  • Fans, heaters, and dehumidifiers get set up to dry out contents and remove the moisture left by liquids first responders used to extinguish the flames

When it comes to effective fire restoration and smoke remediation, nothing beats our team at SERVPRO of Norwich and Windham County. Give us a call at (860) 887-0447, and we can send our Green Fleet out for assessment.
