Waterford, CT Fire Damage Cleanup and Restoration

Fires can be rapidly developing and destructive to homes and businesses alike, impacting homes for more than 20,000 in Waterford and larger commercial buildings like the Lawrence Memorial Hospital. We can help with all aspects of fire restoration and repair. 

Effective Fire Damage Mitigation in Waterford

Mitigating fire damage means a suitable solution for many pressing threats and concerns that homes experience after extinguishment. Once the house is cleared for entry by first responders, we can work fast to determine the need for helpful actions like:

  • fire restoration
  • water removal services
  • smoke residue removal
  • content relocation
  • air filtration

Removing Soot from Surfaces and Contents

Soot deposits present an immediate threat to sensitive surfaces. The acidic composition common to many of these smoke residues can have irreversible effects on the finish of furniture, cabinets, and countertops. Our SERVPRO team quickly removes these threats as fast as possible to protect the underlying substrate and make the overall restoration process more streamlined. 

Deodorization Options for Trapped Smoke Odors in Waterford Homes

Harsh smoke odors are a common threat for homes and businesses following nearly all fires. Removing these formidable malodors is one of the final steps of restoring comfortable living conditions. As such, we arrive with multiple types of deodorizing products and equipment for fast and thorough neutralization of open-air smells and trapped scents in porous materials.

Our Fire Restoration Process

Every fire damage event is a little different and requires a unique solution, but the general process stays the same. The steps listed below illustrate our process for the “typical” fire damage emergency.

Step 1: Emergency Contact

We are available 24 hours, 7 days a week. When you call, one of our representatives will ask a series of questions about the fire damage to your home or business. This information helps us respond immediately with all the needed equipment and resources.

Step 2: Inspection and Fire Damage Assessment

We carefully inspect and test adjoining rooms of your property to determine the extent of the fire, smoke, and soot damage. This step is crucial to developing a plan of action.

Step 3: Immediate Board-Up and Roof-Tarp Service (if needed)

In many fire damage cases, it’s necessary to board up missing windows and walls and to place tarps on a damaged roof. This helps to maintain security and to protect against further damage. 

Step 4: Water Removal and Drying (if water damage is present)

The water removal process begins almost immediately and removes the majority of the water. We then use dehumidifiers and air movers to remove the remaining water and complete the drying process. 

Step 5: Removal of Smoke and Soot from All Surfaces

We use specialized equipment and techniques to remove smoke and soot from ceilings, walls, and other surfaces. 

Step 6: Cleaning and Sanitizing

Any restorable items will be cleaned and sanitized. We’ll use a variety of specialized cleaning techniques to restore your belongings to pre-fire condition. Our professionals will also remove smoke and other odors using advanced air scrubbing equipment and fogging devices with deodorizers.

Step 7: Restoration

Restoration is the final step—getting your home or business to its pre-fire condition. Restoration may involve minor repairs, such as replacing drywall, painting, and installing new carpet; or it may entail major repairs such as the reconstruction of various areas or rooms in a home or business.
