Cleaning Your Electronics and Contents After a Fire

Fire damage, including smoke and soot, affects not only the structure of your Hampton home but also your belongings.

SERVPRO of Elizabeth City/Outer Banks understands your family’s furniture, clothing, keepsakes, and other belongings make your house more than a structure; they make it home.

The belongings are boxed and inventoried and taken to our warehouse.  We use various cleaning techniques to help restore your items.

SERVPRO of Elizabeth City/Outer Banks will clean and help in restoring contents damaged by water, fire, or mold.

Grease Fire in Your Elizabeth City/Outer Banks Kitchen

An unattended pan on the stove caught fire and ignited other surrounding materials which caused a kitchen fire to erupt in this home.

After any fire damage situation, your primary focus should be safety first:

  • Is it safe to stay in the house?
  • Electrical and "slip and fall" hazards are some of the most prevalent concerns.
  • Only do activities that are safe for you to perform.
  • Wet materials can be VERY heavy. Be careful!

Cleaning Your Textiles and Electronics After A Fire

The restoration process begins when you call your SERVPRO of Elizabeth City/Outer Banks.

In this photo, our Textile and Electronics crew have begun to collect, inventory, and categorize all household items that will soon be cleaned at our warehouse.

Our belief is to Restore, not Replace.  Restoring helps to save the insurance industry money and you to keep your keepsakes.  

During a "typical" fire damage emergency, we carefully inspect and test adjoining rooms too, to determine the extent of the damage.

If necessary, roof-tarping and boarding of windows and doors are put into place to secure the home or business. Read more about the process

Structure Repairs After a Fire

In this room, you notice that the ceiling and window framework is exposed and the walls are covered. 

This is the structural restoration process to help get this home 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 a room or rooms in the home or business.

The fire damage restoration process begins after you call SERVPRO of Hampton North. 

We carefully inspect and test the adjoining rooms to determine the extent of the fire damage and make preparations to protect the property against any further damage.

Drying Out Your Home After a Fire

After the fire trucks have left, your Hampton home or business is likely suffering from not only fire and smoke damage but extensive water damage from the firefighters efforts.

The fire damage restoration process begins almost immediately following a fire once we receive the emergency call. 

In this photo, you notice one of our dehumidifier machines that is pulling out the remaining moisture in this particular room while the structural restoration is taking place.    The "DeHu" as we like to call it and air movers are used to remove the remaining water and complete the drying process.
