Fire Damage Restoration in Brooklyn

During a fire, the smoke swirling out of any opened windows can illustrate how forcefully the smoke pushes away from the flames consuming an apartment in Brooklyn. Fire damage restoration experts from SERVPRO know that this same strength pushes smoke particles into areas that might seem completed unfazed. Smoke particles, as well as the smoke’s heat, can also damage areas far away from direct heat.

What Kind of Smoke and Fire Damage Might Happen to Unburnt Rooms?

In other areas, SERVPRO’s technicians work to clean away soot before it can cause permanent damage. Soot affects painted surfaces, metals, and wood. Both steam and smoke can leave oil-based paint surfaces bubbled, and affect wallpapers and trim in a similar manner.

    •    Other noticeable kinds of smoke and fire damage in Brooklyn leach odors into the air, namely from soot-saturated
    •    Carpeting and other absorbent flooring,
    •    Textured walls and other surfaces (brick, cork, acoustic tile, etc.),
    •    Tucked-away enclosures with hard-to-reach interior spaces.

How does SERVPRO Restore These Additional Areas to Pre-Fire Condition?

Our technicians use equipment designed to remove soot particles, oils, and the plethora of other chemicals produced when things inside your dwelling burn or with some synthetics, get too hot. With carpeting and other flooring, it is typical for these areas to become highly loaded with soot. This makes cleaning an intense activity.

Textured walls require brushing and vacuuming, followed by liquid cleansers in some cases. We use a hydrogen peroxide-based method on acoustic tiles that removes the soot from the tiniest crevices and pores. With enclosed areas, we generally refrain from opening these up and instead depend on powerful binding agents used during a deodorizing fogging session.

Staining can occur, making it cost-effective to replace materials. We discuss such situations with the customer prior to making any permanent changes or investing time into cleaning items that the property owner might instead prefer to eliminate and replace.
