How Can Soot and Smoke Damage Get Cleaned from Basking Ridge Properties?

It is not uncommon to see many surfaces and contents covered in smoke and soot soils after a fire gets extinguished. We have many wet and dry cleaning approaches to clear these residues and protect the affected surface. 

Can Smoke Odors Be Formidable in Basking Ridge Homes? 

Properties can often be overwhelmed by the spread of odors after a fire damage situation. Combustion of fuels, chemicals, and plastics can create even more volatile aromas than the burning of traditional building materials. Using counteractant products, we can reduce the severity of these smells to make the full deodorization process more efficient.

Can SERVPRO Complete Fire Damage Repairs? 

Damage repairs are not always required, but with structure fires, the probability of needing some form of build-back is high. With our general contractor license and availability, we can begin repairs and reconstruction shortly after fire restoration completes in the house.
