Mt Airy, MD Fire Damage Cleanup and Restoration

Fires are a devastating force against Frederick County structures. Even with the involvement of insurance providers, there are initial actions that must occur immediately to protect and preserve affected Mt. Airy homes. Between the businesses and stores along the Baltimore National Pike to the homes of our several thousand residents, fire damages must be contended swiftly.  

Does Debris Removal Help Mt Airy Homes? 

While professionals can take several mitigative actions when our SERVPRO team first arrives, few carry the lasting weight of fire debris removal. The objective of mitigation is to reduce worsening conditions, and by eliminating heaped debris and charred remnants of building materials, we can reduce the presence of harsh odors and circulating soot particles.  

Fire Damage Mitigation Solutions Available for Mt Airy Structures

Mitigation can involve several actions designed to protect the property and its contents. Primarily, the phase reduces costs and time spent in restoration, which requires several focal points for immediate actions, such as:

  • Fire damage clean up 
  • Fire and smoke damage removal
  • Smoke odor removal
  • Soot cleanup
  • Content cleaning

Does House Fire Clean Up Include Smoke Odor Removal? 

Odors are a common staple of fire damages, making them something our SERVPRO team prepares to face and overcome. We have several deodorization practices that can reduce and ultimately remove harsh odors from the property.

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

The fire restoration process begins when you call us. Our consultant will guide you through the crisis and may ask several questions to help us better understand the type of fire damage you experienced, determining the equipment and resources needed.

Step 2: Inspection and Fire Damage Assessment

We determine the scope of the fire and smoke damage by examining the affected areas and by testing the adjoining rooms for smoke and soot damage. An accurate assessment is crucial to the planning process. 

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)

If needed, we can begin the water removal process with powerful pumps and extraction units. This removes most of the water. We complete the water removal and drying process with industrial-strength dehumidifiers and air movers. 

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

We clean and sanitize the restorable items and structures damaged by the fire. Our professionals use a variety of cleaning techniques to restore your belongings to pre-fire condition. We’re also trained to remove odors using industrial air scrubbers and fogging equipment.

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.
