The Right Restoration Company Makes a Difference | SERVPRO® of Western Essex County
Winter has many positive associations, including increased time with family and exciting holidays. However, the Red Cross notes that winter has the highest volume of house fires as well, urging families to be prepared.
While planning ahead for house fires might seem dismal, it is a wise choice for homeowners. You should create a fire evacuation plan for your household, and also consider the restoration company you will work with to restore your home if it’s ever needed. Picking a company that can respond quickly and restores thoroughly is highly recommended.

Fire damages are multifaceted—not only can they affect the structure of your home, but they can also damage your things and be detrimental to air quality. Finding a company that can handle all these aspects is vital to having the proper restoration completed. Here is how we restore after a fire:
It is important that the structure of your home is prepared quickly and well following a house fire because these are the elements that support your home. We will start with tests to get an overview of the damage severity so we know what repairs should be completed. By using industry-grade equipment, we will then begin to remove soot and damage from surfaces.
Because we know how important your belongings are, we make sure our technicians are able to restore most items as well. Wood and upholstered furniture can be cleaned and deodorized thoroughly. Oftentimes, we are also able to restore paintings, photos and electronics as well by utilizing appropriate tools and methods to protect them.
The smoke smell after a fire can linger for ages, but that is not the only concern. Fires can leave soot particles behind that cause some concern. That is why instead of trying to mask the scent, we use air scrubbers to fully purify and deodorize the air. Our technicians will work with you to develop the best deodorization method for your needs in order to provide your family with healthy air once more.
If you’ve been affected by a fire, reach out to us right away! We are here 24⁄7 to help you recover.
