Waynesboro, GA Fire Damage Cleanup and Restoration

Waynesboro's history dates back before the Revolutionary War, meaning that there are many historical properties in areas to the town that remain protected to this day. When threats like fire exist, these landmarks and protected properties can suffer substantial damages, even if the nearby commercial and residential structures suffer the worst of the disaster. Experienced smoke and fire cleaning technicians on our roster can restore the interior and exterior of properties after a blaze. After extinguishment, our SERVPRO team can work fast to get mitigation started. 

Fire Mitigation Approaches for Waynesboro Homes 

Providing a safe work environment for responding technicians is the ultimate initial goal. This is achieved by using air scrubbers and hydroxyl generators that can capture hazardous carcinogens circulating in the environment. Likewise, fire debris removal can reduce the concentrations of soot particles and smoke odors. As general contractors, we can also perform several emergency services upon arrival, including: 

  • Structural repairs
  • Extraction
  • Content relocation
  • Controlled demolition 

Removing Harsh Odors from a House in Waynesboro

Smoke and burning odors are among the most widespread effects that our restoration technicians must address. Several tools and pieces of equipment the player role and deodorization and the neutralization of harsh scents. Our technicians commonly rely on thermal fogging, hydroxyl generators, and ozone machines to handle the bulk of odor concerns. Odor-counteractant beads and granules can lessen the strength of noxious smells, making deodorization with these tools less time-consuming and taxing.
