Call Your Local Fire Restoration Team to Restore Your Home in Martin

You may think that your Martinez home is not vulnerable to a fire, but evidence shows that home fires can erupt quickly. A kitchen grease fire or an electrical short can damage your home in just a few minutes. Very often, the flames burn in only one section of the house, which makes your restoration needs easier to damage. However, even the smallest of fires require professional attention if you want to avoid future complications.

Locally, fire restoration services for Martinez homeowners are our specialty at SERVPRO. We coordinate with repairers and insurance adjusters to make your restoration process as seamless as possible. Our crew is available around the clock to minimize the time in which your home and its contents continue to absorb soot, smoke, and any extinguishing agents used to put out the fire. Every minute counts when we are trying to mitigate your loss in terms of time and money.

Should I call a restoration team even if the fire was small?

Yes! It would be best if you always let our SERVPRO team take a look at the damage in your home. It is best to have our knowledgeable team use the latest technology available in our field to inspect your home. Using tools such as hygrometers and infrared camera imagery, we can detect where water might be hiding in places such as subfloors and within wall cavities. Similarly, we inspect your ventilation system and follow the smoke path to determine how to mitigate the odor it left behind. This thorough assessment focuses on protecting you from developing an environment where your home or health could be compromised. Among the actions we can take to remove traces of the fire we include the following:

  • Use thermal foggers or hydroxyl generators to combat the acrid smell
  • Discard items, particularly porous textiles that might pose a danger to your health. Upholstery and carpets are especially vulnerable to being damaged beyond repair
  • Application of industrial-strength cleaning agents to remove stains and soot throughout your home

SERVPRO of Columbia County is at your service when accidents happen. Call us at (706) 868-5441 whenever you need us and let us apply our expertise to leave your home, "Like it never even happened."

air freshener being sprayed Our team of experts will have your home looking and smelling, “Like it never even happened.”

SERVPRO Understands That Martinez Homeowners Do Not Want To Suffer Bad Odours.

Any homeowner understands that pleasant smell is part of what makes a house feel like home. From freshly baked bread to flowers to your favorite essential oils, there are many ways to make your Martinez home smell lovely.

One of the worst things after fire damage restoration in Martinez is the lingering smoke smell. That is why deodorization is an integral part of the SERVPRO remediation process.

Why do smoke smells linger?

Any person who has the misfortune to suffer a house fire knows that the scent of smoke tends to linger. But why is that?

Smoke and soot contain microscopic particles that infiltrate deep into fabrics and are hard to remove.

Smoke and soot can bond to many different types of materials.

Increasing ventilation dilutes some of the smell but does not remove all of it.

Adding scents such as room spray or air freshener mask the smell but does not get rid of it.

What is the best way to get rid of smoke smells?

The best way to rid your home of lingering smoke smells is to give us a call. We train our technicians in a range of deodorizing practices designed to leave your home smelling so fresh it’s "Like it never even happened." Getting rid of smells is an essential step in our fire damage restoration process.

What can SERVPRO do to help?

We have many deodorizing techniques at our disposal, including:

Pellets and granules designed to absorb odors so they cannot return.

U.V. misters that release a fine spray of cleaning chemicals that can get into nooks and crannies and remove smells.

Thermal foggers that are strong enough to tackle even overpowering lingering scents.

Air scrubbers that use fine HEPA filters to pull soot and smoke particles out of the air and pump clean air back into the room.

We can also use fans to exhaust odors, spot cleaning for stubborn soot stains, or injection devices to tackle tiny problem spots, such as stains on the carpet.

We train our technicians to assess your home's condition after cleaning and restoration and decide on the most appropriate deodorization method.

If you are worried about a lingering smell of smoke in your home, give SERVPRO of Columbia County a call at (706) 868-5441.

5/27/2020 (Permalink)

Staircase in entryway of home Many homes in our area have beautiful staircases. Should fire happen, call SERVPRO to restore your home.

After a Fire, You Need Professional Help from SERVPRO to Restore Your Evans Home  

When a fire happens in a home, the key to lessening loss is to engage a professional service to mitigate the loss. If incorrect cleaning methods or agents get used, it can result in more significant losses to the structure and contents.  

What Do I Do First to Clean Fire Damage Off My Staircase? 

No matter how the fire damage happened in your Evans home and spread to the stairs, they may have restoration potential if the cleanup begins quickly enough. The longer building materials get exposed to water and soot, they can deteriorate. The following factors are determinants if SERVPRO can restore your stairs: 

  • If there is charring to any of the components
  • If the treads or risers have damage from water or heat exposure 
  • The type of construction materials  

In cases where the stairs have carpet and padding, SERVPRO techs carefully remove it to expose the treads underneath. The wood gets inspected to determine the need for extraction of water or drying due to swelling from moisture absorption has occurred. If necessary, the techs can dry the staircase using their equipment before moving on to the next step in the restoration process.  

The technicians have access to a vast array of specialized cleaning agents, particularly for hardwood. While the carpet and padding may have protected the treads and risers on a staircase, the rails may need detailed cleaning to remove all traces of smoke residues. It is vital that cleaners with the power to release the grip of the smoke get used but also do not harm the wood.  

Fire damage needs fast action for the best outcome, SERVPRO of Columbia County at (706) 868-5441 has certified techs available 24/7 to restore your home to its preloss condition.

Calling the Experts at SERVPRO for Fire Restoration in Evans Gets Prompt, Professional Results!

If you have a fire in your kitchen from a mishap while cooking, it can leave your interior with much destruction. Before you even notice something catches fire, the flames move quickly, and smoke fills the kitchen and other rooms within your home. Even if the firefighters extinguish the fire fast, you are still left with a mess of debris, saturated surfaces, and sticky smoke particles.

How Does Your Team Perform Fire Restoration Services?
When you contact our team at SERVPRO, we can come to your home 24/7 to assess your fire and smoke damage in Evans. Not only are we experts in fire and smoke restoration, but we can also make sure that your structural elements are sound.

What Should I Do Immediately After the Fire?
It can be frightening and stressful to deal with a fire in your Evans home, but our team is available whenever you need us. These are some of the initial steps to keep in mind to help you navigate the process:

    •    Ensure that the fire department deems your structure safe for entry after the fire is extinguished.
    •    Turn off the main electrical panel to your home if it is not already done. This helps to safeguard against fires that may spark within the walls due to electrical damage.
    •    Even if the kitchen fire was small, do not run the HVAC system in your home. This can cause the smoke particles to travel through your ductwork.
    •    If possible, close off the fire loss area within your home.
    •    Contact our team of skilled fire damage restoration technicians to assess the fire loss and start the cleanup process.

Why Does the Smoke Residue in My Home Seem Sticky?
The type of smoke residue left after a fire depends on a variety of factors. Our team has different classifications for smoke left after a fire, and we have specialized cleaning techniques to help us address each one.

    •    Protein Smoke – This is most likely the cause of the smoke and pungent odors left behind after your kitchen fire. This residue may be difficult to detect with the naked eye, but it sometimes presents in discoloration on the walls and other surfaces.
    •    Wet Smoke – This happens when there are synthetic materials like rubber or plastic that burn. These fires are often lower in heat and have a strong odor. We use wet sponge cleaning methods to wipe away this sticky smoke residue that tends to smear easily with dry methods.
    •    Dry Smoke – This is often left whenever there are organic materials like wood or paper that burn. This is generally a high-temperature burn that is fast-moving, leaving behind a dry film.

When we come in to assess the damage from fire and smoke within your home, we often use a plan of action that includes several layers of cleaning techniques and equipment. This multi-faceted approach allows us to neutralize these tough odors to leave your home in preloss condition “Like it never even happened.”

What Happens to My Belongings During Fire Restoration?
Our team can work to treat your belongings, either on-site or using our pack-out services. We determine the best course of action depending on the availability of space and the level of damage present.

    •    Pack-Out Service: If your belongings require pack-out services, SERVPRO arrives with all of the packing materials and boxes necessary to move your items off-site safely. Items that have been impacted by tough smoke odors and soot residue may be addressed using our powerful submersion techniques. We also have a range of advanced deodorization tools at our facility that allows us to restore your items carefully.
    •    On-Site Service: We understand how vital it is to you that our items are cared for carefully and efficiently. For on-site cleaning. We can move your belongings and furniture to an area of your home unaffected by the fire. By quarantining off a particular area, our team is able to clean the items without smoke particles and debris impacting other areas of the interior.

Kitchen Fire Tips
After a kitchen fire, it is best to remember that your interior calls for specialized care. Our team of skilled and IICRC-certified technicians is available to ensure that everything is done as safely and efficiently as possible. Please remember:

    •    Do not turn on any of your ceiling fixtures after the fire has been extinguished. There could be moisture around the wiring that could lead to electric shock.
    •    Do not consume any food or beverages found within the cabinets or stored near the fire. Any consumables that might have been impacted by the flames, smoke, water, or heat could be contaminated.
    •    Do not attempt to clean anything on your own without the proper tools and methods. Improper cleaning could cause the fire and smoke damage to set in. Our team knows how to make sure that your walls, ceilings, appliances, and all surfaces are carefully cleaned and restored to like-new condition.

Small Fire, Big Smell

Fire and smoke can be the result of many different things. Maybe you get distracted when cooking and grease fire ensues, or a mischievous teen is playing with a candle in the living room, and suddenly his experiment bursts up in flames. In more extreme cases, an electric malfunction can cause a more significant issue requiring the help of your local fire department. Regardless of the culprit, the smell left behind is often enough to remind you day after day of the event.

In Augusta, fire and smoke damage is best left to SERVPRO. Our team recognizes that the size of the flames is not always commensurate with how much they affect your life. The disproportionate impact is generally evident in the smell of smoke left in your home once it travels through air vents and clings to upholstery and fabrics. Despite your best efforts, the stench may prove to be a worthy opponent, leaving you in need of professional services like ours. As soon as the emergency happens, reach out to our crew and let us begin the restoration process as soon as possible.

Most people do not realize that deodorizing a home takes strategy and know-how. At SERVPRO, we know that ventilation is critical, but we also know that specialized equipment makes all the difference. When we enter your home, we bring tools such as air scrubbers, which utilize carbon filters to remove gases and odors from your home. We may also bring thermal foggers, which contain solutions to prompt a chemical reaction that eliminates the smell, as opposed to covering it. By placing your trust in us, you find yourself with a catalog of deodorizing solutions capable of obliterating the offending smell.

Smoke and fire damage does not need to be massive or catastrophic to disrupt your life. SERVPRO technicians understand the intricacies of each event and apply their expertise to resolve the situation as quickly and effectively as possible. As a homeowner, you are in good hands with our crew. All you need to do is contact SERVPRO of Columbia County at (706) 868-5441 and let us leave your home “Like it never even happened.”

How Advanced Technologies Work for Fire Odor Removal in Augusta

1/21/2020 (Permalink)

Art/ House Fire Trust Our Professionals With Fire Odor Removal In Your Augusta Home. Call Us At (706) 868-5441.

Deodorizing and Improving Air Quality In Your Augusta Home

The charring and warping of building materials and thick layers of soot are overwhelming evidence that your Augusta home suffered from a fire. Restoration professionals have many strategies to clear away the residues, deep clean, and refurbish burned structures. But to succeed at making it “Like it never even happened,” lingering odors from the blaze must be banished as well.

Persistent Odors a Common Challenge

Struggling with fire odor removal in your Augusta home days, weeks, and even months after the restoration of the visible damage is all too familiar a story. Partnering with our professional deodorization experts is essential to prevent long-term issues.

First Deodorization Efforts

Odor management begins when SERVPRO crews arrive at your home. During the residue cleanup phase, we reduce a significant amount of odor-bearing particles. Deodorizing industry best practices recommend debris removal and deep cleaning, which we do as a matter of course. As we clean, rinse, and, importantly, remove the debris and soling the odors reduce substantially.

Final Challenges and Solutions

Tiny, odor-carrying particles are the incompletely combusted fuels burned or, in the case of kitchen fires, evaporated in your home. They continue to float in the air and infiltrate porous materials, cracks, and crevices even after cleaning. When they deposit into HVAC ductwork, they can be circulated continuously throughout your house. SERVPRO can use masking agents, granules, and sprays to distract from the smell, but we also continue to improve our response by seeking out innovative technologies.

Advanced Deodorization 

Ways that SERVPRO goes beyond conventional cleaning procedures include the integration of air quality equipment and chemical reaction strategies that change the odiferous particles at the atomic level. Elimination, not covering, the smell is the goal.

Air Scrubbers

Negative air pressure machines seal spaces, using suction to force the airborne and smelly contaminants through HEPA filters before venting to the outdoors.

Thermal Foggers

Heated chambers combust deodorants, causing the resultant fog to seek out the soot particles in the air, on surfaces, and within crevices and porous materials. The fog molecules pair with the soot molecules, rendering them non-offensive in smell.

Ozone Machines

When ozone is introduced, it reacts with and destroys chemicals that cause pungent odors. Inhabitants must evacuate the space treated during the process.

Hydroxyl Generators

Hydroxyls occur when ultraviolet rays react with water vapor (H2O) and oxygen (O2). They rapidly decompose harmful organic and inorganic compounds by dismantling the molecular structure of odors and volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Hydroxyl generators operated by our certified technicians are safe to use around people and pets.

Rely on SERVPRO of Columbia County to work with you to find the answer to odors that remain problematic after fire restoration. Call (706) 868-5441 to schedule an evaluation.

fire damaged home If your apartment ever gets negatively affected by a fire in another unit, it is wise to seek professional help.

After A Fire In Augusta, There Are Ways To Lower Costs

If a fire ever burns somewhere in your apartment complex in Augusta, your unit could suffer from minor or more severe problems. Something burning anywhere inside your apartment building could cause fire damage to your unit, depending on how far the flames and smoke spread. Professional restoration companies like SERVPRO often find issues in more than one unit inside a large building. For example, smoke can spread from one dwelling to many others quite quickly.

Once smoke gets inside your home, it can leave behind foul odors and soot residues. During most fire damage projects in Augusta, our SERVPRO technicians find themselves conducting soot removal on many affected building materials or contents. In some cases, pungent aromas can be eliminated once every surface that smoke touched gets cleaned with specialized chemicals. In other cases, when you can still smell smoke after all residues are removed, we can conduct further deodorization procedures.

When the majority of your apartment unit gets affected by smoke, we could have to move all of your contents out of your home so that we can clean them and your structural components separately. In some cases, we can move the contents to another place in your apartment that was not affected. In other situations, we can put a temporary storage unit on the property to help reduce costs.

Other cost-saving strategies during move-outs include storing your affected possessions on the premise. Sometimes we can move contents to a safe area in your unit and leave other things in place. We can also move all the furniture items to the center of the affected room and shrink wrap them, so they do not get damaged.

Another method to save you and your insurance company money is to clean the items before they get packed up. If everything can get cleaned in place then put in a box to get removed, then it can reduce the labor costs of the overall project. Cleaning items before packing them can save our SERVPRO technicians time they would have had to spend unpacking and repacking before returning the items.

If your apartment ever gets negatively affected by a fire in another unit, it is wise to seek professional help. After the fire gets extinguished, call SERVPRO of Columbia County at  (706) 868-5441 any day of the week, and we can help restore your home to the way it was before, “Like it never even happened.”

Home Remedies That Do Not Work for Fire Damage Odor in Augusta Homes 

After a small fire in a home, once the cleanup of the fire damage completes, many people assume the odor diminishes over time. They could not be more wrong.  

When fire damage odor is left behind in an Augusta home, the method of treating the smell successfully depends on the type of fire. Common culprits are a fire on a stove or a candle catching something nearby on fire. These are two different fire types; protein fires that mostly occur in the kitchen respond to distinct cleanup and odor control methods from other kinds of fire loss, for the successful eradication of pungent scents.  

Why Waiting It Out Does Not Work

Once homeowners clean up fire loss in a home, just because it is not visible does not mean it is not there. Soot holds odors, and some particles are smaller than the human eye can see. Cross-contamination occurs when the particles find their way to other areas of the home via foot traffic or the HVAC ductwork. While homeowners wait for the odor to diminish, it is spreading. 

Spray Fresheners

Most spray fabric fresheners work by having chemicals that attach to odors, and when the spray evaporates, so does the smell. The problem with treating smoke odors in this manner comes when deeply embedded scents are the culprit as the sprays do not reach them and are ineffective.  

What Works for Fire Damage Cleanup?

In cases of protein fires, there is a nearly invisible but very pungent mist that coats almost everything in the vicinity. If any remains, so does the odor. SERVPRO technicians use specific cleaning agents such as solvents that cause the residue to release from surfaces and removes them. Technicians also inspect the ductwork to determine if it necessitates cleaning to rid the home of smoke odors. 

Special Applications for Stubborn Odors 

SERVPRO uses professional equipment such as air scrubbers with HEPA filtration, hydroxyl generators that neutralize odorous molecules with the power of UV rays or thermal fogging, which attacks and eradicates deeply embedded odors with a heated solvent that behaves as the smoke did during the fire.  

When you have a fire damage odor in your property, contact SERVPRO of Columbia County at (706) 868-5441. The certified technicians have both the knowledge and equipment to neutralize odors and leave your home smelling like new, "Like it never even happened."

Revolutionize The Fire Damage Remediation Process in Augusta

Fires can easily happen in your garage and cause serious damage to your entire house. Contact the professionals at SERVPRO for remediation help.

Fixing Charring and Odor Issues after Fire Damage in your Augusta Home Garage

A fire in your home garage can cause severe damages, especially if you store paints or other chemicals in the area without taking proper precautions. These chemicals emit fumes that can ignite easily in case of a spark. The chemicals also cause intense fires that might affect the structural integrity of your home or produce excessive smoke creating various problems. We offer professional mitigation of fire damage, which can help restore your home to its preloss state.

An intense fire can reach the structural support of your home, including beams and joists. Restoring such fire damage in your Augusta home can be challenging because, even if the structure is still stable, removing the charring and smoke deposits left is a tedious process. Our SERVPRO technicians check the depth of charring to determine whether there is a need to replace any structural supports. If it is less than 1/4” deep, we can resolve the problem through cleaning.

Abrasion of charred surfaces is the straightforward solution that comes to mind when restoring fire damage. However, in certain situations, it might not be appropriate because it can cause further damage to the affected materials. Our SERVPRO technicians can apply advanced cleaning solutions such as ice blasting. This method utilizes dry ice pellets, which cause the top layer of the charring to shrink, leading to cracks. As more pellets are blasted at high pressure over the surface, they are exposed to lower, warmer layers. The pellets expand as they revert to carbon dioxide gas removing the layers of charred materials.

Removing charring on surfaces and any other debris from the loss site eliminates most of the problem. However, aesthetical problems might persist. Fires tend to leave pungent odors and also damage paints or other finishes on surfaces. Our SERVPRO technicians can help resolve these problems by painting walls, ceilings, and other surfaces. We also use advanced equipment such as Ozone generators and hydroxyl generators to deodorize your home.

For the complete restoration of your Evans, Martinez or Grovetown home after a fire, call SERVPRO of Columbia County to help. You can reach us at (706) 868-5441 any time. We’re Faster To Any Size Disaster.

Our Fast Response Will Restore Your Augusta Kitchen To Pre-Damage Condition After A Fire

Our technicians have the expertise and equipment to restore your property to pre-damage condition.

Fast Action Limits Fire Damage In Augusta Kitchen Blaze

Fire damage left behind by a protein fire remains one of the most common types of fire loss. It can be one of the most deceptive as the residue often is invisible yet pungent. Many homeowners toss the burned meal, clean the oven or range and assume the odor will eventually go away.

When SERVPRO mitigates fire damage in an Augusta stove or oven, one of the first actions performed by our technicians is containment of the area. This step stops any further spreading of odor-causing particles in other areas of the home. There is often no water to dry or clean up. If there is powder-like residue from a fire extinguisher, our technicians carefully remove it using handheld vacuums with HEPA filters so that they can address the heart of the issue: the odor.

Because of the nature of protein fires, they do not produce much smoke, the flames usually are not significant, and the fire itself extinguished quickly; often the cleanup needed is not done correctly regarding the odor-causing residue. The protein-rich fibers in meats and other protein-based foods turn into a fine mist when exposed to heat high enough to combust. This misty residue is nearly invisible but carries a foul odor that gets progressively worse the longer it remains.

It is vital to have professional mitigation done for this type of fire loss. SERVPRO technicians use EPA-registered cleaning formulas that cut through the residual film left on surfaces and neutralize the odor.

Odor removal after a protein fire is not a one-size-fits-all application. Our technicians have multiple methods for odor removal. When cleaning is not enough to completely eradicate cooking odors, we have machines such as the Hydroxyl generator that uses the same techniques as UV rays from the Sun to eliminate odors at the molecular level.

When pungent odors prove stubborn, thermal fogging is a very effective tool our technicians use. A technician uses a fogger to deliver a heated solvent that neutralizes foul odors. The key is, our technicians do not stop until you are satisfied with the remediation efforts for your fire loss.

Timely mitigation of fire damage lessens the loss. Call SERVPRO of Columbia County at (706) 868-5441, and our technicians have the expertise and equipment to restore your property to pre-damage condition.
