Cleaning Your Electronics and Contents After a Fire

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

SERVPRO of Chesapeake North 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 Chesapeake North specializes in restoring contents damaged by water, fire, or mold.

Grease Fire in Your Chesapeake 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!

Drying Out Your Home After a Fire

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

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 water removal process begins almost immediately following a fire and removes the majority of the water.  The "DeHu" as we like to call it and air movers are used to remove the remaining water and complete the drying process.
