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.

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

We are available 24 hours, 7 days a week. When you call, one of our representatives will ask a series of questions about the fire damage to your home or business. This information helps us respond immediately with all the needed equipment and resources.

Step 2: Inspection and Fire Damage Assessment

We carefully inspect and test adjoining rooms of your property to determine the extent of the fire, smoke, and soot damage. This step is crucial to developing a plan of action.

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

Any restorable items will be cleaned and sanitized. We’ll use a variety of specialized cleaning techniques to restore your belongings to pre-fire condition. Our professionals will also remove smoke and other odors using advanced air scrubbing equipment and fogging devices with deodorizers.

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.
