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

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 carefully inspect and test adjoining rooms of your property to determine the extent of the fire, smoke, and soot damage. This step is crucial to developing a plan of action.

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)

The water removal process begins almost immediately and removes the majority of the water. We then use dehumidifiers and air movers to remove the remaining water and complete the drying process. 

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

Any restorable items will be cleaned and sanitized. We’ll use a variety of specialized cleaning techniques to restore your belongings to pre-fire condition. Our professionals will also remove smoke and other odors using advanced air scrubbing equipment and fogging devices with deodorizers.

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.
