Our Technicians Assess the Fire Damage and then Create a Tailored Remediation Plan
A serious emergency, house fires in Wilmington leave you facing a major cleaning project once the fire has been put out. While the flames themselves can create extensive damage to your home, smoke is a primary cause of damage as well when a fire happens.
Scheduling a fire damage restoration service in Wilmington for your home fire is the smart thing to do. Companies such as SERVPRO are specially trained and certified to handle all kinds of fire damage correctly and help you salvage anything possible. Our technicians use clues to figure out the kind of smoke which has damaged your home. We can restore your home back to excellent condition after a fire.
There are various types of smoke damage that we take the time to identify before we begin restoration. Wet smoke damage is caused when a fire burns or smolders at a lower temperature. They produce few flames but usually put out much smoke. We distinguish wet smoke damage by its powerful smell and thick coating.
Dry smoke damage, unlike wet smoke damage, is created from high levels of heat. A dry fire in your home, when hot, creates a dry, thin, and powdery substance. The residue which is left by dry smoke damage, in general, is many times easier to clean than what is left from wet smoke damage.
A more unusual kind of smoke damage is fuel oil smoke damage. When a fire is caused by flames in an oil burning furnace, your home can be affected by fuel oil smoke damage. It creates a powerful odor and can wreck couches and other upholstered pieces. At SERVPRO, we can help you clean up even a mess like this.
We can also clean up smoke residues from protein fires and fire extinguisher residue.
