We are available to you 24/7 and ready for action.. After a fire is extinguished timing is critical. Fire damage restoration must begin quickly to maximize effectiveness.
If your house or commercial property has smoke or fire damage, it is important to call PuroClean Services as soon as possible to arrive on scene and start fire restoration. Our company serves our hometown of Cranford, NJ as well as other surrounding towns in Union County.
We can help you minimize claims for property and possessions by responding immediately. It is best to secure the premises from wind or rain, break ins or just curious neighbors.
After the is fire put out and the building is secure make sure you call the following companies:
Once your insurance company or local fire officials approve the remediation of the smoke damage, our IICRC trained technicians will assess the damage to your home or business, communicate with your insurance adjuster about what needs to be done, and develop a plan of action to restore your home or business to pre-loss conditions.
A typical plan of action for fire restoration includes the following:
An air scrubber helps with the quality of air in the building.
Depending on the severity of the fire damage, the contents of the building will be treated in one of the following ways:
Most fires also have water damage or even mold since water was used to put out the fire. The water damaged, soot filled areas must be removed in order to dry the structure in order to prevent further damage.
Air movers and dehumidifiers are usually needed in order to dry the structure.
If there are walls, carpeting, or ceilings that can not be saved, we will remove the charred surfaces and debris.
If the walls, floors and ceilings can be cleaned, we will clean them with appropriate smoke odor neutralizers, degreasers or chemical sponges depending on the finishes.
NEVER consume food that may have been exposed to the smoke, heat, or soot. This includes non-perishables!
It depends on your policy. If it’s covered, the insurance company will cover all invoices up to your policy limit, and you’re responsible for the deductible. Contact your insurance broker to find out if this loss is covered.
Wood that does not have a protective layer like polyurethane or a clear coat finish often takes on smoke odor that is hard to remove. Most furniture has a protective layer only on the sides that people see, like the top of the table, but the underside does not have a finish on it. The pores of the wood open up with the heat and then close as it cools, trapping the smoke odor within the wood itself. At PuroClean Restoration Services, we clean the wood and then use an ozone machine to try to get rid of any remaining odors. If necessary, we use an encapsulant to seal in any remaining smoke odors.
