Mt Airy, MD Fire Damage Cleanup and Restoration

Fires are a devastating force against Frederick County structures. Even with the involvement of insurance providers, there are initial actions that must occur immediately to protect and preserve affected Mt. Airy homes. Between the businesses and stores along the Baltimore National Pike to the homes of our several thousand residents, fire damages must be contended swiftly.  

Does Debris Removal Help Mt Airy Homes? 

While professionals can take several mitigative actions when our SERVPRO team first arrives, few carry the lasting weight of fire debris removal. The objective of mitigation is to reduce worsening conditions, and by eliminating heaped debris and charred remnants of building materials, we can reduce the presence of harsh odors and circulating soot particles.  

Fire Damage Mitigation Solutions Available for Mt Airy Structures

Mitigation can involve several actions designed to protect the property and its contents. Primarily, the phase reduces costs and time spent in restoration, which requires several focal points for immediate actions, such as:

  • Fire damage clean up 
  • Fire and smoke damage removal
  • Smoke odor removal
  • Soot cleanup
  • Content cleaning

Does House Fire Clean Up Include Smoke Odor Removal? 

Odors are a common staple of fire damages, making them something our SERVPRO team prepares to face and overcome. We have several deodorization practices that can reduce and ultimately remove harsh odors from the property.

Step 1: Emergency Contact

We are available 24 hours, 7 days a week. When you call, one of our representatives will ask a series of questions about the fire damage to your home or business. This information helps us respond immediately with all the needed equipment and resources.

Step 2: Inspection and Fire Damage Assessment

We carefully inspect and test adjoining rooms of your property to determine the extent of the fire, smoke, and soot damage. This step is crucial to developing a plan of action.

Step 3: Immediate Board-Up and Roof-Tarp Service (if needed)

In many fire damage cases, it’s necessary to board up missing windows and walls and to place tarps on a damaged roof. This helps to maintain security and to protect against further damage. 

Step 4: Water Removal and Drying (if water damage is present)

The water removal process begins almost immediately and removes the majority of the water. We then use dehumidifiers and air movers to remove the remaining water and complete the drying process. 

Step 5: Removal of Smoke and Soot from All Surfaces

Your property’s ceiling, walls, floors, and other surfaces will likely have smoke and soot residue. We’ll use specialized cleaning products, equipment, and techniques to properly clean your home or business. 

Step 6: Cleaning and Sanitizing

Any restorable items will be cleaned and sanitized. We’ll use a variety of specialized cleaning techniques to restore your belongings to pre-fire condition. Our professionals will also remove smoke and other odors using advanced air scrubbing equipment and fogging devices with deodorizers.

Step 7: Restoration

Restoration is the process or restoring your home or business to its pre-fire condition. Restoration may involve relatively minor repairs, such as replacing drywall and painting, or it could include significant reconstruction of entire rooms.
