Fire Restoration in Raleigh Demands Professionalism

A fire has ruined several building materials and items in my home. Who can help me bring things back to normal? You can trust professional restorers to repair your residence.

SERVPRO is available 24/7 to perform fire restoration in Raleigh homes. Working with specialists is vital because a fire can ruin your home’s structural integrity in ways that are not visible immediately. Some signs that your home might have structural problems after a fire include the following:

  • Cracks in concrete, masonry, or bricks,
  • Cracking or warping steel 
  • Visible charring in wood
  • Warped drywall

Apart from the apparent issues a home fire causes, like blackened walls and melted plastic or glass, smoke and soot can keep causing damage. Soot has acidic properties that can ruin your home’s structure. The acids in sulfur and carbon corrode items like locks, cabinet pulls, and door knobs. This damage can make your home unsafe or difficult to sell.

Smoke also discolors porous materials in a home. Plastic and some types of stone, like marble, can become permanently discolored after exposure to smoke. Smoke may also discolor carpets, walls, clothes, curtains, and upholstery.

The water from firefighting efforts can create ideal conditions for mold infestation. Mold can be difficult to manage and requires expert remediation. Our SERVPRO technicians can remove the standing water in your home using equipment like electric submersible pumps or wet/dry vacuums. We can use air movers to sweep saturated air away from surfaces and replace it with dryer air. Once the moisture is in the air, our SERVPRO team can use dehumidifiers to remove it.

Another concern after a fire is air quality. Removing all hazardous chemicals and toxins from small enclosed spaces like closets and cupboards is essential to ensure safety. Our SERVPRO technicians can use air scrubbers to remove airborne particles, gases, and odors from the air. We capture these particles and introduce clean air back into the environment.
