Do Fire-Damaged Materials in New Haven Homes Require Removal?

Our responding technicians' focus is to reduce the need for a tear-out and reconstruction as much as possible. Fires can already be destructive events, so maintaining as much of the original building materials in your home is a worthy goal for restorers. We evaluate affected surfaces one by one.

Condition of the Structure

It is important to determine the condition of surfaces and building materials when restoring fire damage in New Haven homes. Careful considerations are made to determine the ideal recovery and cleaning approach is to ensure the right steps promptly get taken to prevent greater harm to the property and reduce materials becoming unsalvageable. There are several ways materials can be impacted by smoke and fire damage, such as:

  • Soot damage
  • Staining
  • Blistered surfaces
  • Weakened integrity

Refinishing and Cleaning

Not all materials and contents affected by fire damage will require removal or replacement. Many of these can remain installed when refinished or appropriately cleaned. Wood créme paste and citrus oils can often revitalize the look of wood-like cabinets and shelves after soot and smoke damage exposure.

Controlled Demolition Saves Costs

Combining the restoration and reconstruction or repairs within the same roster of professionals allows us to do more to complete projects efficiently and within budgetary limitations. A large part of our full-service fire damage reconstruction and restoration solution is controlled demolition. This process allows us to remove damaged portions of building materials without total deconstruction.

Build-Back Services

In many cases, fire damage often results in repairs or reconstruction. The same contractor license that allows us to complete controlled demolition can also permit these experienced technicians to replace discarded materials and reconstruct where needed.

Fires can destroy many surfaces and leave others needing pressing cleanup and restoration. Whatever your home needs, our SERVPRO of New Haven team can help when you call (203) 234-1100.
