SERVPRO Uses Approaches Such as Resurfacing and Refinishing to Help Save More Items

Fire affects items in a property in many ways, including soiling, charring, or depositing strong odors. Any of these effects can be minimal and thus readily reversible or severe to the point of necessitating the disposal of the affected item. The number of items disposed of in your Carol Stream property may depend on the restoration approaches used. Finding ways to save more items can be essential in keeping your insurance claim low or saving several items with sentimental value.

Various fire restoration approaches help Carol Stream property owners restore affected items. They vary from the simple ones such as cleaning to the more advanced ones like resurfacing. With professional assistance from SERVPRO, it is possible to start such restoration without doubts whether the outcomes would be satisfactory. Our technicians conduct evaluations to determine whether any affected item requires advanced cleaning or resurfacing before taking any steps.

Resurfacing Fire-Damaged Items Such as Furniture Might Involve:

  • Repainting surfaces
  • Reupholstering items 
  • Refinishing surfaces such as wood

One of the guiding factors that help our SERVPRO technicians during restoration is relying on the basic principles of cleaning. Relying on established guidelines makes it easier to identify a problem and also choose a response plan correctly. 

The Main Principles Of Cleaning Include:

  • Identifying surfaces
  • Identifying residues
  • Capturing residues

When the intervention is done properly, it can help save items that would otherwise be disposed of immediately. For instance, when our SERVPRO crews use soda blasting to clean charred wooden furniture, we can remove all the traces of the charring and traces of odor, “Like it never even happened.”  Various other approaches help with several other unique problems. 

SERVPRO of Carol Stream/East Bloomingdale works hard to help you achieve the desired goals during restoration. Call us at (630) 830-6236 when you need assistance.
