SERVPRO Professionals Perform Fire Restoration for Eagle Rock Residences 24/7

One of the most frustrating aftereffects of a residential structure fire is the strong odors left behind by soot particles, burnt debris, and fire suppression efforts. Unfortunately, Eagle Rock homeowners’ consumer-grade cleaners and deodorizers cannot fully combat the effects of fire damage residues.

SERVPRO is ready to render fire restoration services for homeowners in Eagle Rock that return homes to a preloss state. The Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) accredited techs are also licensed to provide residential contracting services (license #999460) as well as mold remediation (license #CMRC-82464).

How Can Homeowners Protect Against Residential Electrical Fires?

Eagle Rock property owners can minimize electrical fire risk with a variety of safety measures, including the following:

  • Avoid overloading outlets or power strips and the use of extension cables as a long-term power source.
  • Have your wiring inspected to ensure that it is up to code per the standards set by the National Electrical Code (NEC). A licensed electrician can mitigate potential faults such as rusty contacts in an outlet. A professional can also advise you on inspection intervals.
  • Use protective measures like surge protectors, ground-fault circuit interrupters, and arc-fault circuit interrupters.

What Deodorization Methods Do SERVPRO Odor Control Technicians Use?

SERVPRO odor control technicians (OCTs) rely on a diverse array of odor control tools for many surfaces. For example, thermal fogging addresses broad-spectrum deodorization needs with solvent-based deodorizers that are released in a dry smoke that penetrates surfaces.

Nonporous items, such as metals and plastics, benefit significantly from manual cleaning with agitation tools and EPA-registered antimicrobials. For heavier damages, such as charring on wood, abrasion cleaning may be necessary.
