SERVPRO Techs Have Vast Experience Handling Mendham Fire Cleanup

Among the many types of home disasters in Mendham, housefire cleanup is one of the kinds that homeowners should never attempt on their own. There are ways those innocent self-cleaning techniques can worsen fire and smoke damage.

During a fire damage restoration job in a Mendham property, there are many common actions SERVPRO technicians undertake. Before the cleanup can begin,  the technicians communicate with First Responders regarding known hazards within the party and confirm it is safe to enter.

Scoping the Damage in the home

The inspection during the fire cleanup by SERVPRO covers several layers of the restoration service. Not only are the techs ascertaining the safety to work within the structure but also:

  • Articles and building materials that need removal for disposal or cleaning
  • Areas of the home requiring controlled demolition
  • Portions of the property needing water extraction services and drying
  • Places that need temporary repairs or security measures taken

Controlled Demolition

Unfortunately, this action is often a large part of the fire cleanup process. Severely smoke-damaged or charred building materials have no potential for reuse through even the advanced cleaning methods employed by SERVPRO. The technicians carefully remove the minimum needed.

Air Quality Measures

While the odor from a grill on steak night smells great, a house post-fire smells horrible. SERVPRO technicians work to remove smoke damage and odors from homes as part of the restoration service. This phase of the mitigation can include running air scrubbers during the cleanup and the use of odor control equipment specifically designed to eradicate odorous soot particles.


Our SERVPRO location offers a general contractor license #13VH06013000. It can offer local property owners the option to have the technicians move from the restoration service to perform any repairs the home needs to remove all traces that a housefire occurred.

SERVPRO of Southwest Morris County at (973) 895-5000 is the company that Mendham residents trust for fire damage restoration services.
