How To Conduct Fire Debris Removal In Paramus: Tips For The Homeowner

If a spark ever ignites inside your Paramus home, the blaze can go from minor to enormous in a short amount of time. Once ignited, flames can use many of your contents and building materials as fuel, which can force you to have to conduct fire debris removal on your property. After something burns at your residence, the best idea is to call in a professional restoration company such as SERVPRO.

However, there are some ways you can conduct fire debris removal inside your Paramus home on your own. If the area burnt was large, it is possible that many things got ruined as a result of the blaze. Charred materials such as drywall or wooden cabinets often have to be removed and replaced after the burn.

When items are severely burnt, our SERVPRO technicians recommend that you remove them as soon as possible. If things like your charred contents remain on your carpet or next to a wall stay put, they can affect previously unaffected areas of your home. Your torched contents can also become a source of pungent aromas if left inside your living area for too long.

The first step our SERVPRO experts recommend to take when handling fire debris removal is to inspect the area for any potential safety hazards. It is always wise to shut off your electricity, gas, and water running to your house after a fire takes place. Next, look for any other potential hazards, including falling light fixtures or drywall and remove them so that they no longer pose a threat. Clear any debris from walkways so that there is a safe path running through your home.

Once you have mitigated any potential safety hazards in the affected areas, it is time to start removing burnt material. Begin by discarding any severely charred, loose contents by putting them directly into a sealed trash bag before moving to prevent the spread of soot. Next, if you notice any severely burnt building materials such as carpet or drywall, it is wise to cut off the burnt sections and put the charred pieces in a sealed trash bag.

Structural burns can be a massive burden on you if you don't call in the experts. For all of your professional restoration needs, call SERVPRO of Paramus at (201) 445-5588. We can return your home to its preloss state, "Like it never even happened."
