Restoration for Your Home in Metairie After Fire Damage
Experiencing a home fire of any size is scary and overwhelming. You have a lot to deal with now in keeping your family together and safe while you are unable to reside in your home. However, dealing with the damage as soon as possible is essential to prevent further damages to your structure and belongings.
Fire damage to your residence in Metairie needs to be addressed by professionals as soon as the fire is out. SERVPRO’s technicians have the training and tools required especially for this type of situation. We also understand that it is a stressful time for you and your family, so we strive to take some of the pressure off.
Many homes have various types of wood surfaces, which require a variety of cleaning methods after a fire depending on how the wood was finished. Our SERVPRO FSRT technicians follow IICRC guidelines to maximize recovery. When it comes to unfinished wood, it is porous so it can absorb smoke residues which cause discoloration or staining. Apply wet cleaning products can allow the residues to penetrate deeper. For light residues, we use dry cleaning methods like brushing, vacuuming, and dry sponge cleaning. Thicker residues can be cleaned with denatured alcohol. If all else fails, sanding and sealing the wood may be required.
Finished wood can usually be wet cleaned. Pre-cleaning by vacuuming heavily soiled areas or dry sponging will assist in the overall process. Massive smoke damage requires more aggressive procedures and may respond to a wood crème cleaner. For severe damage, the wood can be stripped and refinished.
Laminated woods are constructed of particle board, pressed wood, or plywood, to which surface veneers adhere. We can pre-clean with the same dry-cleaning methods and wet clean using a general surface cleaner. When finished the cleanser can be rinsed, and we dry the area.
When it comes to the structural integrity of your home, the framing may need replacing after severe fire damage. If there is a significant loss, we ensure that a structural engineer or building inspector approves the restoration.
