Kitchen Fire: Residential Fire Mitigation Project
Recently, our team here at SERVPRO of Windham & Windsor Counties received a service request for emergency mitigation services following a kitchen fire at a local residence. The fire originated and caused the most significant damage in the kitchen, but there was heavy contamination from smoke throughout the rest of the home. Luckily no one was injured in the fire.
There were multiple phases throughout the project with the first being the packing and removal of salvageable belongings and furniture to our location to be cleaned and deodorized. Items that were unable to be restored were inventoried and disposed of. The next step was to remove all the building materials that were damage from the fire. Our team carefully removed, bagged, and discarded these materials. All other areas were then professionally cleaned. While all of this was taking place, we installed large air scrubbing devices and deodorizing machines to assist with odor removal. Lastly, we applied a coat of our smoke sealant product in all areas where demolition was performed.
In the end, the areas were completely deodorized, sealed, and ready for reconstruction. Once the reconstruction phase is completed by a contractor, our team will deliver the furniture and belongings back to the property.
