Fire Damage in Helena Den Gets Full Restoration Services

Sometimes the worst part of fire damage in a home is not due to the actual flames and heat but the soot and smoke that gets left on every object in the area of the fire.

When cleaning up fire damage in a Helena den that started from a candle too close to the curtains, SERVPRO technicians found many issues more related to smoke and soot rather than charring.

First Action: Containment

The techs put up barriers over the doorways and vents in the room to contain the soot within the den area. Air quality is another essential part of fire damage cleanup, and the techs deploy air scrubbers. These machines grab airborne soot particles and trap them in a maze of HEPA filtration.

Documenting Damaged Contents

Items in the area where the fire began, such as the curtains and nearby items with too much charring for restoration, get removed from the premises. Before doing so, the techs get the approval of the homeowner (or adjuster) and also photograph and document the condition of the item to make filing for insurance claims reimbursement even quicker.

Move-Out of Items for Cleaning

The fortunate part was the homeowner was able to extinguish the fire quickly. However, there was a significant amount of smoke residue left behind. SERVPRO techs sorted through the contents of the den to determine items with restoration potential through cleaning. As the pieces get moved to another area for cleanup, they get photographed, and the techs note the location in the room, so they get returned to the precise spot in the den.

Smoke Residues Need Proper Cleaning Solutions

The removal of smoke residues is never a one-size-fits-all process. Different types of residues can exist side by side in the same room as they are dependent on the kind of things burned and the heat of the flames.

SERVPRO of Helena & Great Falls at (406) 458-6008 restores homes with fire damage of any scale. Through the use of their advanced cleaning methods and equipment, the techs make the loss to the house, "Like it never even happened."
