Wilmington, DE Fire Damage Cleanup and Restoration

Responding Immediately to Fire Loss Incidents in Wilmington Homes or Businesses

Saying that We're Faster To Any Size Disaster in Wilmington means little without proving it when it counts. We have a central location in New Castle County, making it easier for us to reach the heart of the city and its more than 70,000 residents right when you need us. While this fast response is critical for the thousands of homes that we stay ready to assist, it is also vital for structures that could become irreparably damaged by a single fire incident, like the historic Woodward Houses or the Cathedral of Saint Peter.

Content Relocation and Cleaning After Fire Damage

Fires can be as destructive to your personal belongings as they are to the structure itself. When you consider the technical equipment and resources for institutions like the Delaware College of Art & Design or the Delaware Technical & Community College, fire losses can be costlier. Part of our fast response is relocating contents and equipment in harm's way to prevent these irreversible effects. Many removed items like furniture can get cleaned and restored at our SERVPRO facility.

Post-Fire Air Quality Concerns

Fires can be hazardous after extinguishment without the appropriate personal protective equipment, which is why air quality control for high-traffic structures like the Delaware Children's Museum or the Grand Opera House is necessary. Regulating airborne particles and contaminants often require several tools, including air scrubbers and hydroxyl generators.
