SERVPRO Makes Every Effort to Work Around your Needs During Fire Restoration While Maintaining an Efficient Service

Can restorers work around my schedule?

Restoration is a time-sensitive task that could lead to permanent harm of possessions or structure if there are delays. But we understand how technicians, chemical agents, and equipment can be an inconvenience to the homeowner. When it is safe for occupants to stay in their homes after a fire, SERVPRO performs emergency cleaning to make it livable. This cleaning may include essential rooms like kitchens or bathrooms, as well as laundry and dry cleaning services. Frequently, we can seal off areas of the property where damage is most severe while leaving the main functional areas of your home free to use. 

What should I do first when cleaning fire damage?

The first twenty-four-hours of fire restoration in your Gaithersburg home is crucial to controlling the extent of harm. Water, which may have been used as part of a firefighting procedure, can begin to damage fabrics or textiles, bond with soots, or create a microbial growth issue. Equally, odor particles may still emanate from the worst affected areas and spread throughout the home. SERVPRO can perform the emergency drying of the property. We can also seal or remove fire debris to prevent them from causing further odor issues while cleaning takes place. 

How can I remove fire odors from the house?

- Locate and remove the source of the odor

- Clean surfaces thoroughly to clear away odor-causing residues

- Use deodorant solvents ideally with misting or fogging equipment at sites of odor

- Apply odor sealant primer to surfaces that continue to produce fire smells

Fire and odor issues can be a massive inconvenience to your everyday life. Our technicians can make your home livable while performing the efficient restoration. Contact SERVPRO of Gaithersburg / Germantown at (301) 963-8474.
