Firefighters warn homeowners not to try to fight fires themselves. Fires move quickly; don’t be fooled by movies where the heroes and their dogs outrun fireballs. They advise people to use fire extinguishers only when:
- The fire is small AND
- Contained AND
- Everyone else is out of the house AND
- The firefighters are on the way
Even under these ideal conditions, with the flames kept to a minimum, the smoke and soot can (and usually do) spread throughout the house. Anyone who has ever mistakenly turned the toaster level to “incinerate” knows what that is like. Even if the firefighters aren’t needed, and there is no water damage, the soot and smoke are likely to create enough damage and more than enough of an odor that you will need professional remediation. At SERVPRO of Fargo, we are always on call to provide emergency services. We are nearby, fast, friendly, and professional.
All team members go through training in cleaning, disinfection/decontamination, and remediation. We also have continuing education to ensure we stay up to date on industry best practices, current trends, how to use the latest equipment, and knowledge of the latest local, state, and federal regulations.
Our certifications that are related to restoration from fire damage are:
- Microbial Remediation (mold, mildew, other growth)
- Structural Drying
- Carpet Cleaning
- Fire & Smoke Damage Restoration
- OSHA General and/or Construction Industry Training Program
- Water Damage Restoration
These certifications show our readiness to attack the various types of damage that fires can leave behind. We also have equipment that removes odors if our cleaning and decontamination efforts fail to do the job completely.
Smoke and soot are corrosive materials. We arrive quickly so we can remove these materials, stop the corrosion, and repair the damage. If needed, we send fabrics out for specialized dry cleaning that ensures the odors from fire damage or mold do not set into the fabric.
We also supervise reconstruction and building services to help restore your home and belongings to their preloss conditions, including:
- Floor repair (tile, marble, linoleum, hardwood)
- Furniture restoration
- Fine art restoration
- HVAC services
- Document drying
- Drywall removal, drywall installation
- Tree removal
- Portable power
- Other (see our website)
After the firefighters, we’re your best friends and fire’s worst enemy.
