SERVPRO Uses Advanced Resources and Procedures to Help Salvage More Items After Fire

A large fire causes significant damage to structural elements and contents, leading to a high cost of fixing and replacing items. For a small fire, the damage left in your Syracuse home may be localized but still costly to fix, especially if you are paying out of pocket. 

Since there are no other practical solutions to fire damage restoration for your Syracuse home, the next best alternative is to find cost-effective ways to achieve the desired goals. It is crucial to note that cutting costs is not the same as taking shortcuts which can have disastrous results later. SERVPRO provides the right solutions when you are in such a fix.

Cost-cutting is possible through:

Although fire consumes entire materials, it can also cause superficial damage such as charring or deep soiling. While such damage may not be aesthetically pleasing, the materials may still be structurally sound to be salvaged. Materials like structural frames and joists can have significant cost implications if you have to replace them. 

Various actions can help salvage more materials, but restorative cleaning is the most cost-effective. Another alternative is resurfacing, especially for contents such as furniture. SERVPRO uses various approaches for restorative cleaning depending on the type, finish, and location of the material. Sanding can help eliminate charring for the unfinished wood materials. Our technicians may also prefer other alternatives such as soda or dry ice blasting, which effectively remove charring and greasy or deep layers of soot. 

Blast cleaning also presents other advantages like:

  • Deodorization of fire odors when using soda
  • No mess when using dry ice pellets
  • It does not wear off the materials being cleaned

SERVPRO of East Onondaga County helps deliver quality fire damage restoration by using advanced resources that also help reduce costs. Call us at (315) 446-8776. We’re Faster To Any Size Disaster.
