Revive Your Home in Manteno After Fire Damage Using SERVPRO

At just an hour south of Lake Michigan, Manteno is a perfect, little town just off I-57. Residents and visitors call it picturesque, and they are correct. Even so, our community still has its share of fires and other disasters.
When a homeowner must deal with fire damage in Manteno, the only way to ensure complete restoration is to hire an experienced company with an extensive inventory of tools and cleaners. Every SERVPRO office has access to a nationwide support network. With it, our restoration specialists can perform nearly every task except for total reconstruction of a damaged home.
House fires usually start in the kitchen and either burn themselves out or get extinguished quickly. Common forms of damage include scorched ceiling and wall tiles, melted or warped flooring, and residue deposits from the smoke.
For physically damaged items, SERVPRO specialists quickly remove all drywall, appliances, flooring, and ceiling tiles. It clears the home so they can clean, but disposal also reduces the number of odors left behind after the fire. Our team members break down and bag everything when possible to avoid accidentally spreading ash or soot throughout the home.
After clearing out the kitchen, personnel clean everything remaining from floor to ceiling. If not removed quickly, residues can continue to eat away at surfaces while also continuing to generate odors. Specialists have access to cleaners tailored to both dry or wet residues and the type of surface they settled onto such as porous wood tables and nonporous surfaces such as marble countertops.
As team members clean the salvageable items, others begin construction where needed. Specialists replace interior wall framing that cannot be cleaned of residues and then hang new drywall panels to enclose the kitchen from the rest of the home again. As the walls go up, personnel can also lay in new flooring to include wood, commercial carpeting, or vinyl tile.
Regardless of the level of damage or where it may be, SERVPRO of Kankakee County quickly works to remove or clean it from your home. If you have had even a very small fire in your home, call us at (815) 935-0077 today to schedule a visit. We are here for you.
