Why Choosing SERVPRO for Fire Damage Mitigation in Chicago Gets Your Home Livable Faster

There are many reasons why SERVPRO should be your go-to mitigation and restoration partner after your Chicago home experiences the damaging effects of fire. Our training encompasses the full range of effects fire can bring about within a home, and the best methods to mitigate those effects. Bringing your home back to the same condition it was before the fire, “Like it never even happened,” is what we do best.
 
Residents whose home sustains fire damage in Chicago can rely on us to remove the charred areas, eliminate the soot, and deodorize your home. Other aspects of fire damage can make your home not only unsightly and ugly but also unsafe. We train our technicians to always keep their safety in mind and to examine the structure's level of safety before beginning any work.
 
During a fire, anything that becomes too hot can ignite and begin burning. Smoke permeates every inch of your home and leaves soot behind on all surfaces, including contents and structures. Odor-causing elements of fire include soot, burned plastics and synthetics, and in the fire damage involving a cooking fire, high-protein items, especially meat. Often, the water or foam used by homeowners during smaller fires or the much more considerable amount used by the fire department can also severely damage a home's interior.
 
SERVPRO gets to work on a home with fire damage by removing the water from the home. This process includes eliminating the high humidity often left behind after a fire. Saturated carpets need a proper and thorough examination to determine if we can save them or if we should instead replace them.
 
Cleaning surfaces until they are free of soot and removing any damaged materials and contents helps keep it from spreading and also decreases the odors. Soot can also cause health effects if not removed promptly, as well as dull the surfaces of shiny or glossy items throughout your house. To further improve the healthy condition of your home, our Odor Control Technician (OCT) uses special chemicals that bond at the molecular level with any soot particles it comes into contact with during thermal fogging. Like all our other techniques, this method produces highly effective results.
