This gives you peace of mind knowing that expert restoration is available when needed. Not only are we Faster to Any Size Disaster, but you can also count on us to make sure we do what we need to save you money with fast, efficient cleanup and recovery. A lot of this can be achieved with the on-site cleaning methods that we have perfected and convenient, controlled demolition services.

What Happens with My Belongings?

It can be devastating to know that you lost a lot of personal belongings in a house fire. However, we do whatever possible to ensure that we salvage what we can once you call us for help with fire damage in Cliffside Park. Our skilled technicians have a lot of training in advanced techniques, tools, and cleaning methods.

Most of the time, we do what we can to clean fire-damaged items on-site. However, we sometimes have to remove items for further cleaning with our pack-out services. We can bring things to our warehouse for detailed cleaning of items stricken with smoke, soot, odors, and other degrees of damage.

For on-site cleaning, some of the different strategies that we use to remove odors and soiling from your household contents include:

Chemical Agents: Some products are better at eliminating residues than others by emulsion. We have a range of chemical agents for protecting the surface while quickly rinsing away soot and smoke residue with the help of pressurized water.

Deodorization: Even items not directly within the fire-loss zone become penetrated by foul odors. We have EPA-registered products and advanced equipment that help us to neutralize odors, including:

  • Hydroxyl machines
  • Thermal foggers
  • Ozone generators
  • Air scrubbers

Agitation: There are many cases where on-site cleaning is more accessible when our technicians can reduce soil buildup on surfaces. Light, medium, or heavy agitation is beneficial because of dusting or working on surfaces with steel wool.

What About Moisture from Extinguishing the Flames?

Something important with any fire damage project is ensuring no moisture lingers throughout the cleanup process. Odors and mold can spread, which boosts the chances of secondary damage that creates added costs and potential health hazards. SERVPRO technicians can access various moisture detection tools to ensure no hidden moisture pockets are left behind.

  • Households naturally contain mold spores. However, these spores remain dormant until germination occurs, such as when materials get soaked from dousing the flames of a house fire.
  • Mold spores increase within 24 to 72 hours after exposure to increased moisture levels.
  • Our team utilizes specialized moisture detection technology to locate any areas where water may have migrated in your home. Common areas to check to include the areas behind walls and baseboards, under flooring, and hidden nooks and crannies.
  • Not only do we dry all areas thoroughly and apply EPA-registered anti-microbial solutions that work to inhibit mold growth.

Will My Home Still Smell Like a Fire Happened?

Fire is a common concern for many homeowners. Soot and smoke residue left after a fire can create a constant reminder if not addressed adequately. If the particulates made their way into your HVAC system, merely turning on your heating or cooling can cause foul odors to resurface. We have specialized cleaning techniques and sealants that we can use on your HVAC system to ensure this does not happen.

Many particles remain invisible to the naked eye, so our IICRC-certified technicians use a multi-layer approach for smoke odor elimination. This gets done using thermal foggers that heat chemical deodorants that bind to odor molecules. We also have air scrubber machines with powerful HEPA filtration to pull particulates from the air throughout the loss zone.

Will My Home Be Structurally Sound?

We only enter your home after first responders deem it safe for entry. With any fire damage project, our crew thoroughly inspects all structural elements to ensure safety and integrity. Additionally, we often use controlled demolition for materials that are not salvageable, including carpet and drywall. If the insulation within your walls has taken on a great deal of smoke damage, we can remove the first few inches to replace it with all brand-new materials.

The goal of any fire damage project is to make it “Like it never even happened” so that your home gets restored to pre-fire condition. Call us at SERVPRO of Fort Lee at (201) 496-6024 to have a crew deployed to your location for emergency restoration services.
