Fire Damage Removal And Cleaning In Homewood 

Being just off I-80/295, Homewood is a great community to live in, with access to not only a certain big city to the north but also Lake Michigan and nearby forests for recreation. Flooding is not usually a problem in our neighborhoods, but a fire can be just as damaging. 

Treating fire damage in Homewood neighborhoods means dealing with not only the physical damage from heat and flames but also the residues and odors they leave behind. Dealing with such a wide variety of damage and repair requirements takes a full-service operation with trained, and experienced personnel. Every SERVPRO team meets those requirements.

Our certified FSRTs (Fire & Smoke Damage Restoration Technicians) can perform every task needed to clear a home of debris, clean the restorable surfaces and items, eliminate odors, and make the home look new again.

SERVPRO team members begin clearing each home as soon as the fire department, and sometimes the insurance company gives the Okay to enter. They sweep out the entryways and hallways first to prevent grinding cinders and residues into carpets and floors. Where needed, specialists also carefully demolish burned structural property still attach to the wall framing and other support structures.

After completing debris removal, technicians clean the home. In a bedroom fire, the items there are usually destroyed, but everything else in the home has various layers of smoke residues. Close to the flames, some items often strong cleaning agents and even some level of scrubbing to remove the residues completely. Farther away from the origin of the fire, the residue layers require milder cleaners. Technicians can often remove them with a sponge and simply wiping down each surface.

The same is true for removing odors from home. Close to the fire damage origin point, odors are very pungent. Depending on the value of an affected item, the insurance company may prefer the replacement cost instead of attempting removal using expensive methods like neutralizing them with an ozone machine. In rooms on the other end of the home, away from the fire, odor removal can be as simple as wiping away the smoke residues that cause them before they can penetrate the surface of walls, ceilings, and furniture.

For SERVPRO of Matteson – Homewood customers, our goal is to put each homeowner and resident into a clean, safe structure as quickly as possible. Call us at (708) 747-9925 today when you need us here or in the nearby communities of Flossmoor, Country Club Hills, and Olympia Fields.
