Assisting You After A Fire
The cold Winter weather is blending into the warmer afternoons of Spring here in North Carolina. We’re spending more time outdoors and less time sitting around the fireplace! However, staying safe around flames and fires is not seasonal. Here are some ways that SERVPRO of Franklin, Vance & Granville Counties can help make it “Like it never even happened,” in your home or business if you experience a fire!
Taking Note of Damage
Once everyone is safe from the structure, firefighters work to ensure that the blaze is extinguished. Once we are on the scene, we work to survey to damage’s extent. Often, this can include board-up services to windows, doors, or affected walls to help seal the home and prevent looting or vandalism.
Repairing the Structure
If there are any safety concerns, those will be addressed first before any focus can be made on cleaning soot from walls. Fire-related water damage can cause floors to buckle and walls to sag, so when the structure is stable, SERVPRO will begin to focus on removing smoke odors and soot from the home or business.
Cleaning Personal Belongings
We know that your home is made up of more than walls and roof. Your belongings are important! Technicians from SERVPRO of Franklin, Vance & Granville Counties take salvageable personal belongings off-site to clean. These are stored and cleaning takes places over time while your home or business is being repaired.
Removing Remaining Smoke
Odors from a fire can remain if restorers aren’t careful to remove them. We make sure to do a thorough duct cleaning to make sure that lingering soot and smoke is removed from your HVAC system and doesn’t recirculate through your home. Special filters and air cleaning machines are put to work to remove smoke and soot particles from the air.
We always hope that our friends and neighbors in our communities are safe! However, if you experience damage from a fire or smoke, give us a call at 252-433-0005 or 919-339-4848. Vance County, Granville County, Franklin County, we are always here to help!
