Raleigh, NC Fire Damage Cleanup and Restoration

The capital city of North Carolina, hundreds of thousands call Raleigh home. As leading restoration professionals for Wake County, we can help after traumatic fire losses, including large facilities and commercial properties for the city, such as the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences and the Carter-Finley Stadium. 

Mitigation Options for Raleigh Homes After a Fire

Mitigating losses after fire damage means getting several services and actions started as soon as our professionals arrive. The more we can do to prevent further harm, the faster restoration completes. Some of these efforts include: 

  • fire restoration
  • water removal services
  • air filtration
  • content relocation
  • smoke residue removal

Protecting Fire-Damaged Contents in Raleigh Properties

Protecting contents can be one of the priorities of our responding technicians, as many homeowners have keepsakes and treasures that are one-of-a-kind. When fires ravage a household, our team needs to relocate affected contents and clean them on-site when possible. We also have off-site restoration at our SERVPRO facility for more pressing cleaning needs.  

Removing Harsh Odors After Combustion 

One of the telling signs of a structure fire is the overwhelming burning smell present throughout the property even after much of the restoration work completes. While some of the cleanup, like soot removal, can help reduce the severity of odors, our deodorization equipment and products finalize this process.

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 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.
