Fire Damage Repair and Restoration

Whatcom County structures can be surprised by fire damage, leaving a pressing need for fast mitigation and restoration services. As leading fire recovery specialists for Bellingham, our SERVPRO team can help when disasters strike.

Mitigating Fire Damage Quickly

Mitigation describes the full spectrum of actions our SERVPRO professionals take when reaching fire-damaged homes and businesses. Without immediate and deliberate action, rooms can be overwhelmed by soot and smoke damage. We must mitigate loss with a combination of dry and wet cleaning solutions. 

  • Smoke damage remediation
  • Environmental filtration
  • Soot removal
  • Extraction
  • Content cleaning

Removing Soot and Smoke Residues

Eliminating surface residues left behind after combustion employs some of our inventory's strong alkaline cleaners, detergents, solvents, and other cleaning solutions. We prioritize approaches that protect the underlying material supporting the settled soot particles.

Overcoming Post-Fire Malodors

After surface cleanup and other fire restoration steps are complete, one of the more considerable and widespread obstacles for restoration professionals is resolving lingering malodors. Counteractant solutions can help minimize the strength of an offensive odor, allowing our deodorization processes using oxidation and pairing with cleaning agents to be more effective.

Repairs Needed After Fire Damage Restoration

With the destructive capacities of fire damages, few structure fires occur without destroying building materials, contents, and fixtures. Combating this occurrence means choosing a restoration team capable of using a general contractor license to help in needed areas like controlled demolition, material reinstallation, remodeling, and other build-back services.
