SERVPRO Techs Have Advanced Applications for Assisting Glen Cove Properties to Recover After Fire Damage

The first time a homeowner sees their Glen Cove home post-fire damage, it can seem overwhelming. Favorite pieces of furniture and items with sentimental value can be covered in soot and smoke residues. It is vital to engage professional fire cleanup to ensure that the property owners have the best outcome for reuse rather than a destination for disposal. 

Glen Cove residents rely on SERVPRO for fire restoration services because they know the technicians have extensive training for handling all types of cleanup post-fire. One of the main ways DIY cleaning ruins items is by using the incorrect cleaning method of the smoke damage present. For example, a hardwood end table may have escaped heat and water damage from the fire and extinguishing efforts, then get ruined beyond the restoration point due to a homeowner using the incorrect cleaning application on the furniture.

Careful Inspection is Paramount

The technicians know how to inspect the furniture and determine if it is structurally sound and the nature of the smoke damage removal needed. In some cases, the piece may require refinishing for reuse, but it will not have any signs of the previous fire damage or associated odors.

SERVPRO technicians never guess when handling the removal of smoke damage. They use both visual inspection and testing to determine the residue types present and the materials that make up the surface getting cleaned. Solvent-based cleaning agents may be necessary to remove some types of residues, but this type of solution may be too harsh for some surfaces, and another type of method needs to get used. The top-level cleaning methods used for soot and smoke damage on furniture are: 

  • Dry cleaning
  • Wet cleaning
  • Immersion
  • Agitation

SERVPRO of Glen Cove / Jericho at (516) 671-1919 brings professional fire restoration to Glen Cove properties. The trained, certified techs are available 24/7.
