East Hampton CT Home Suffered Fire Damage? Rely on SERVPRO for Cleanup, Restoration, Pack-Outs, and Content Cleaning

East Hampton CT Homes and Effective Fire Loss Mitigation and Recovery

Fires, regardless of their origin and severity, present multiple hazardous and challenging consequences to overcome in your East Hampton CT home. Mitigating these concerns and returning a property to its pre-fire condition is the priority of our professional restorers upon arriving at your house. The cleanup and restoration services require premier, cutting-edge equipment, products, and techniques. Our fire recovery team continues to grow as more of our field technicians become certified through the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) as Fire & Smoke Restoration Technicians (FSRT) and Odor Control Technicians (OCT.) 

The many facets of fire loss recovery

Fire damage to East Hampton CT homes involves many processes and approaches for a successful restoration. Overcoming the damaging presence of soot, smoke residues, odors, and possibly water removal from the extinguishing efforts can be a challenging task. Content management and protection are among the most intricate and involved duties for even our skilled professionals to achieve. Our SERVPRO team works to assess the full scope of the damage and determine the most efficient approaches going forward.

If the house fire was limited in structural or cosmetic damage, the fire marshal typically allows our team to begin mitigation services as the fire trucks are pulling out. A rapid removal of charred building elements, fixtures, and contents minimizes the effects of moisture and odors and helps ensure an acceptable recovery from the blaze. We can also quickly secure the exterior of the structure from weather, animals, and trespassers. It is incumbent upon the property owner to limit potential safety hazards.

Fire Insurance, Authorizations, and a Plan

Our SERVPRO representative must receive work authorization before we can begin the recovery. This Service Authorization Form allows us to take immediate action, once signed. Protocols must be followed, and these commence with a survey and walk-through, a detailed scoping and an inventory summary that you, the homeowner, can present to your insurance adjuster. We work to preserve and protect and prevent on-going damage, but the final decisions on cleanup, demolition, restoration, and repair are decided by you and your agent.

Pack-Out Services Protect Treasured Possessions

Numerous homeowners can agree that the most considerable investments on their property are their belongings and personal treasures that may be impossible to replace. We have a comprehensive content management team that can carefully remove damaged or at-risk items from a home after documenting them with our CCIS Customer Content Inventory Service process. We transport the contents to our nearby facility for focused cleaning, deodorization, and safe storage. While in our care, we can use our advanced techniques and equipment to restore each item to its preloss condition, whenever possible. Once our technicians have completed the cleanup of water and fire debris from the residence, we can return the items and place them exactly where they were, "Like it never even happened."

Staffed Facility, Advanced Cleaning Equipment, and Storage

We have ultrasonic submersible tanks in our facility that function on vibrations creating microscopic bubbles to completely clean porcelain ornaments, silverware, and other high-end soot-covered items. The exploding bubbles create abrasion-free cleaning of delicate items. We also have a full ozone chamber at our warehouse, allowing us to deodorize large lots of items simultaneously with the production of ozone that bonds with the molecular structure of odor compounds and neutralizes them. ?

Meaningful Structural Cleanup and Restoration

The obstacles and challenges of cleaning soot from the interior surfaces of walls, ceilings, furnishings, decorations, and possibly fine art are done on a case by case basis. Our technicians can use special sponges, vacuums, cleaning, and deodorizing products to complete the interior restoration. We may recommend hiring an independent curator for expensive artwork.

Our team understands the need to eliminate malodors after a house fire, the lingering effects after the fact, that can be difficult to remove. We can inspect, clean HVAC ducts with our advanced equipment and change the filters. A fogging of a deodorizing agent can improve the indoor air quality. The SERVPRO team has the experience, equipment, and goal to mitigate all the negative effects caused by a fire.

Deodorization, cleaning, and other restoration needs that your property has after a fire loss incident can be challenging for homeowners to face on their own. At SERVPRO of Middletown / New Britain, We’re Faster To Any Size Disaster, and we are here to help you 24/7 by calling (860) 826-5169.
