SERVPRO Can Help You Repair Structural Components after Fire Damage in Danbury

Fires can start in homes due to various mishaps, such as electric shorts, appliance failures, or cooking accidents. Once a fire ignites, it can spread throughout your house quickly using your building materials and contents as fuels. The fire's heat and smoke can also cause damage in places far away from the source. 

When working on fire restoration in Danbury, our SERVPRO technicians first inspect the building to look for potential safety hazards and the extent of the damage. Once we mitigate any possible safety risks, we can start formulating a plan to restore your home to its pre-damaged state, "Like it never even happened." We begin by determining which of your affected building materials and contents we can save and which ones we must remove and replace.

For example, if only the drywall surface got affected by heat or smoke, we could seal and repaint the exterior and save your drywall. But, if the charring is deeper than the surface or on both sides of your drywall material, we can remove and replace a section of your walls. If your wall studs have more than a quarter-inch of charring, the studs could lose their structural integrity, forcing us to remove them. However, if the burnt material is only on the surface of the studs, then we can wire-brush, scrape, or abrasion-blast the wood framing until the surface is clear wood. After the soot and charring are removed from your studs, we can apply a specialized sealant paint like Kilz to seal any malodor particles.
