What Are Fire Mitigation Options for Forest Hills Homes?
Mitigation describes all the earliest actions taken by our SERVPRO team to protect the house and its contents from migrating fire damage. House fire clean-up is spread out, removing debris from the flooring and continuing into air filtration. We help with:
- Smoke Remediation
- Fire and Smoke Damage
- Smoke Damage

Smoke Remediation of Forest Hills Homes
When smoke residues and soils exist throughout the property, the objective of experienced fire restoration professionals is to eliminate these surface concerns. To accomplish this, these professionals use various recovery methods beginning with wet surface cleaning with solvents and detergents. In heavily damaged areas, controlled demolition is possible.
Does Smoke Remediation Mean Odor Removal?
A challenging obstacle for responding technicians is a lingering odor after extinguishment. While initial efforts like debris removal can reduce the severity of these conditions, ultimately, smoke remediation requires deodorization equipment like thermal fogging, hydroxyl machines, and ozone generators. Surface cleaning can often begin this process in reducing present odors.

Our Fire Restoration Process
Every fire damage event is a little different and requires a unique solution, but the general process stays the same. The steps listed below illustrate our process for the “typical” fire damage emergency.
Step 1: Emergency Contact
The fire restoration process begins when you call us. Our consultant will guide you through the crisis and may ask several questions to help us better understand the type of fire damage you experienced, determining the equipment and resources needed.
Step 2: Inspection and Fire Damage Assessment
We determine the scope of the fire and smoke damage by examining the affected areas and by testing the adjoining rooms for smoke and soot damage. An accurate assessment is crucial to the planning process.
Step 3: Immediate Board-Up and Roof-Tarp Service (if needed)
Fire damage can often compromise windows, walls, and roofs. To maintain security and to protect against further damage, we can board up missing windows and walls and place tarps on damaged roofs.
Step 4: Water Removal and Drying (if water damage is present)
If needed, we can begin the water removal process with powerful pumps and extraction units. This removes most of the water. We complete the water removal and drying process with industrial-strength dehumidifiers and air movers.
Step 5: Removal of Smoke and Soot from All Surfaces
We use specialized equipment and techniques to remove smoke and soot from ceilings, walls, and other surfaces.
Step 6: Cleaning and Sanitizing
We clean and sanitize the restorable items and structures damaged by the fire. Our professionals use a variety of cleaning techniques to restore your belongings to pre-fire condition. We’re also trained to remove odors using industrial air scrubbers and fogging equipment.
Step 7: Restoration
Restoration is the final step—getting your home or business to its pre-fire condition. Restoration may involve minor repairs, such as replacing drywall, painting, and installing new carpet; or it may entail major repairs such as the reconstruction of various areas or rooms in a home or business.
