SERVPRO Can Assist with House Fire Clean Ups in the Telluride Area

Once a fire ignites in your kitchen during cooking, the flames can quickly engulf many of your contents and building materials. Even if the fire gets extinguished quickly, many items in your home could still get damaged. Some blazes may not burn many materials, but they could put out smoke that travels through your structure and causes several issues.

When conducting fire damage restoration in Telluride, our SERVPRO technicians start by inspecting the area of your home where the fire started first. Then, we can use wipe tests on other parts of your structure to see if any soot residues are present. Once we determine the extent of the damage, we can then begin the following restoration efforts:

If any of your contents or building materials got severely damaged during the blaze, we could remove anything that we do not think we can save. Next, we can take steps to sand off or soda blast charring that is only present on the surface of certain items, such as your wooden studs. Then we can use a combination of wet and dry cleaning techniques to remove any soot residues we find on the surfaces of your ceilings, walls, or floors.

In some cases, the smoke from the fire can penetrate non-porous materials deeply, and foul odors can remain after all burnt debris and soot residues are removed. We can use thermal or ultra-low volume (ULV) fogging methods to dispense deodorants into a mist to mimic how the smoke travels. Or, we can set up an ozone generator that neutralizes malodor compounds.

If a fire ever breaks out in your house while cooking dinner, call SERVPRO of Montrose / Telluride at (970) 240-6970.
