Fire Damage SERVPRO Provides Frederick Property Owners with Premier Fire Loss Mitigation Frederick Fire Damaged Homeowners Often Rely on SERVPRO for Cleanup and Restoration; We're Faster To Any Size Disaster

Carpet Cleaning After a Fire in Your Frederick Home

Even without a disaster, the carpets of your Frederick home can be magnets for dust, dirt, debris, dander, and other potential contaminants. While you work to keep up with these threats and hazards with regular vacuuming and cleaning of trafficked areas of your property, when situations like fires occur, this magnetism for soil can severely compromise the look and feel of your carpeted floors. Effects like soot and smoke residue can directly affect these areas of your home.

With a growing roster of IICRC-Certified cleaning technicians capable of handling the often traumatic and widespread effects of fire damage in your Frederick residence, we can approach every disaster with experience and confidence. We understand the risks of improperly cleaning soot and smoke residues, so our rapid response team arrives with the specialized equipment capable of carefully extracting this sediment and the high-strength cleaning agents, some specially formulated, to restore the look and function of your carpeting.

As soot removal is one of the priorities to restore damaged carpets after a fire, our SERVPRO team arrive with our premier carpet cleaning equipment to implement both dry cleaning and hot water extraction approaches depending on the severity of the situation. Not only can this practice help to remove soot/smoke particulates that could lead to staining of the fibers, but it can also help to thoroughly deep clean the carpets as well from other potential soiling, sediment, and buildup that could exist at the base of the fibers. We may be able to turn a bad situation into a much better one with cleaner carpets than before the fire.

Another concern for restoring damaged carpets after a fire is the smoke smell and foul odors that can get trapped through the material. Our SERVPRO team can utilize UV and thermal fogging machines to neutralize these foul odors on contact. These same machines can also address foul scents from the fire present in open environments, fabrics, and other materials throughout the house.

We attempt to offer the most efficient and thorough solutions to address every fire consequence that could threaten your property. With our expertise in the restoration industry and our growing inventory of recovery and mitigation equipment, our SERVPRO of Frederick County can make fire loss incidents “Like it never even happened.” Give us a call today at (301) 662-1747.

Aquarium Overflow

Water Damage Aquarium Overflow Set a timer when adding water to your tank!

Aquariums can be peaceful, beautiful and a focal point of a room; however, overflow or leaking can cause major damage to your home or office. We recently cleaned water damage from a 180 gallon salt water tank the homeowner was adding water to  with a hose and forgot.  Small leaks can also cause damage and mold around the tank.  IF you plan to vacation for a long period (even if you have automatic feeders), it's a good idea to have someone check on your tank periodically to ensure there is no water damage to your home.

Now, during these balmy fall days, is the time to do outside inspections of your gutters, downspouts, and your house's foundations.  Take a little extra time, to clean out gutters, or install gutter helmuts, check for obstructions to your downspouts and make sure they drain away from your foundation and to check for cracks around your home's foundation and to caulk and/or repair them before the winter arrives.
