A bathroom sink with fire and soot damage. Let SERVPRO help get your bathroom back in working order.

SERVPRO Can Help You Remediate the Fire Damage in Your Newport Bathroom Today! 

Fire damage can be scary for any homeowner to experience, regardless of how long they have owned their home. A blaze can happen slowly, or it can roar to life suddenly. However, no matter how sparks begin to fly inside your house, what matters most is how you deal with the problem. When it comes to the longevity of your Newport home, you need to get help as soon as possible. Fortunately for you, there is always professional help nearby. 

What would you do if a hot flat iron left on in your Newport bathroom caused fire damage? 

Immediately calling for help can mean a world of difference when it comes to fire damage in your Newport home. The damages begin to set in while objects cool. For example, plastics that sustain intense heat can begin to discolor as they cool, changing to a dull yellow color. Here at SERVPRO, we base our entire business model on getting to your home when you need us most. From the moment we receive your call, we can begin to put together a team of talented fire and smoke damage remediation technicians. We're Faster To Any Size Disaster, and we stand by those words. 

How Does SERVPRO Get To My Home So Quickly? 

Our technicians go to great lengths to ensure we can depart our facility quickly, including: 

  • Loading our advanced technology into our vans in advanced 
  • Using GPS to take the quickest route to your location 
  • Assembling our team while we're first on the phone with you 

When is it Best to Call For Restoration Services? 

Should the fire in your home be severe enough to call the fire department for help, consider calling SERVPRO of Newport directly after. The quicker we can get to the fire damage and begin the remediation process, the better it is for your home. If the fire in your home was relatively small and put out with a fire extinguisher, immediately after. No matter what scenario you find yourself in, it's best to get help immediately. 

How Can SERVPRO Remove Stains From Burnt Cosmetics? 

Unfortunately, a fire in your Newport bathroom can sometimes lead to the destruction of cosmetic products. Whether your favorite foundation has burned on the surface of your sink, or a container of soap has melted into a sticky mess, we have a way to help you. Our technicians can begin remediation by removing charred debris from your bathroom and then moving onto the soot stains. Our techs can remove soot stains with devices such as:  

  • Scrubbing pads
  • Lubricative cleaning agents 
  • Chemical cleaning agents

Removing soot can be a complicated process. However, our fire damage restoration technicians are certified by the Institution of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration (IICRC.) Our SERVPRO techs can investigate the cause of the soot and then apply that knowledge to breaking it down with specific cleaning products. Soot stains can vary depending on the burned material, so not all cleaners work the same. Working with professionals can help ensure your home might be able to return to its preloss state. 

What About the Smell? How Can SERVPRO Help With That? 

Fires that burn through cosmetic products, and other packaging, can leave behind a putrid odor. The smell of burning plastics and chemicals is never pleasant. For this reason, SERVPRO can help reduce odors by using devices such as: 

  • Air Scrubbers with Carbon Filters 
  • Thermal Foggers 
  • Sealant Paints 

Sealing and removing odors can help you continue to live in your house, "Like it never even happened." Air scrubbers and thermal foggers both eliminate malodors on a particle-level. Air scrubbers pull particles from the air and entrap them. Thermal foggers dispense a vapor as a fog, which can also entrap and neutralize the odors. Should a smell be particularly persistent, sealing paints can help our technicians seal away the particles causing the unpleasant odors. 

It is always the goal of our technicians to thoroughly clean and remediate your home so you can go back to living your life. Furthermore, we're here with you every step of the way through the remediation. If you have questions, concerns, or comments, our technicians are willing to listen and answer, so you know what is happening inside of your home at all times. 

If your home sustains fire damage, never wait to get help. Reach out to SERVPRO of Newport & Bristol Counties today by calling (401) 847-8145. Our technicians are always here to help!
