Darien, CT Fire Damage Cleanup and Restoration

Fires can quickly threaten Darien homes, leading to a pressing need for restoration and recovery services. While single-family homes becoming impacted by an unexpected fire is destructive enough, buildings used for community events throughout the year like the Halloween Family Fest at the Darien Arts Center or Holiday Magic at the Grove Street Plaza affect hundreds in an emergency. The fast response of our SERVPRO team can make a difference in the time spent with restoration and the ultimate costs for an insurance company and customer.

Initial Fire Mitigation Steps for Darien Properties  

Mitigation is a vital stage of restoration and recovery for fire-damaged properties, especially in the earliest stages where these actions can impact total loss. Our involvement with area insurance providers helps us know what these adjusters need to approve damage claims. We can secure the structure through emergency services and begin our extensive evaluation of the property for damage cataloging and estimation purposes. Some of the initial emergency services that precede job scoping include:

  • Roof tarping and board-up
  • Fire debris removal
  • Air quality and HVAC cleaning
  • Controlled demolition

Soot and Smoke Odor Removal for Darien

Cleaning up and deodorizing after a fire loss involves managing and eliminating circulating particulates like soot, ash, and smoke residues. When these particles come to rest on structural elements and contents, several practices like abrasive cleaning, agitative cleaning, and the application of solvents and detergents can help.

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

We are available 24 hours, 7 days a week. When you call, one of our representatives will ask a series of questions about the fire damage to your home or business. This information helps us respond immediately with all the needed equipment and resources.

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)

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)

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 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.
