Harrisonburg, VA Fire Damage Cleanup and Restoration

From James Madison University to historic properties like Harrison House built in the late 1700s, fires impact each property differently. We work fast to determine the necessary mitigation and restoration actions to help. 

What Mitigative Actions Help Harrisonburg Properties? 

Mitigation involves several of our most direct actions simultaneously to reduce soot and smoke concentrations in the household. From managing air quality with HEPA air scrubbers to clearing smoke and fire debris from the floors of the residence, mitigation ultimately helps with: 

  • Fire Damage Restoration
  • Fire Damaged Homes
  • Smoke Remediation
  • Fire and Smoke Damage

How Can Smoke Malodors Get Neutralized?

Smoke can affect the property in many ways, one of which is through a lingering odor present in many open areas other than the ignition point. Neutralizing and deodorizing these threats involves more than a thorough cleaning of the house. We have odor-eliminating products and equipment like ozone generators and hydroxyl machines to help. 

How Can SERVPRO Remove Soot Damage in Harrisonburg Homes?

One of our professionals' most considerable and complex restoration challenges after fire damages is removing and managing soot damage throughout the property. Partial combustion creates these particles that come to rest on surfaces and can ruin the underlying substrates due to their acidic nature. We combine wet and dry cleaning products and techniques to loosen and remove stubborn soot soils.

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

We are available 24 hours, 7 days a week. When you call, one of our representatives will ask a series of questions about the fire damage to your home or business. This information helps us respond immediately with all the needed equipment and resources.

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

Your property’s ceiling, walls, floors, and other surfaces will likely have smoke and soot residue. We’ll use specialized cleaning products, equipment, and techniques to properly clean your home or business. 

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 process or restoring your home or business to its pre-fire condition. Restoration may involve relatively minor repairs, such as replacing drywall and painting, or it could include significant reconstruction of entire rooms.
