Wilmington, NC Fire Damage Cleanup and Restoration

This bustling port city is home to countless warehouses, industrial parks, and manufacturing facilities.

When disasters strike Wilmington, SERVPRO can respond quickly to help with:

Mitigating Fire Losses in Wilmington Properties

Mitigation is an important step in fire and smoke damage recovery and removal. From the initial actions our professionals take upon arrival, we can evaluate the condition of the house and its pressing concerns that could lead to greater damage to installed structural elements and contents. Early actions focus on debris removal and standing water.

Neutralizing Offensive Smoke Odors 

Another pressing concern for structures after a fire is the overwhelming odors that can move through the property. With openings and pathways like doorways or the HVAC system, offensive malodors can find their way into connected spaces far from the ignition point. We have powerful deodorization equipment and products to help.

Removing Soot from Wilmington Homes

Partial combustion can create carbon particles that come to rest on vertical and horizontal surfaces in varying capacities. Atmospheric conditions like humidity and pressure influence the smoke damage your home can receive, making the needed cleaning and removal action different for every property.

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)

Fire damage can often compromise windows, walls, and roofs. To maintain security and to protect against further damage, we can board up missing windows and walls and place tarps on damaged roofs. 

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

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 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.
