SERVPRO Has Specialist Fire Damage Restoration Procedures for Residents of Riverhead

Hardwoods can be challenging to clean as they often have a lacquer or finish, which can affect their ability to counteract heat or smoke damages. Unfinished furniture can often respond poorly to solvents or other cleaning products, which, without careful pre-testing, can lead to staining or water absorption. 

When carrying out fire damage restoration in your Riverhead home, technicians pay special attention to hardwood furnishings. In some cases, the extent of the damage may be too severe for cleaning-based repair. These situations may be apparent when there are signs of blistering on the wood or extensive staining. SERVPRO can refinish hardwoods to return them to a preloss condition. 

  • The wood creme paste is a solvent cleaner that can remove cosmetic layers of finish with stains.
  • We use extra-fine steel wool to avoid damage to wood surfaces when agitating stains or smoke residues.
  • Semi-refinishing woods can help to remove water-marks or discoloration. 

Hardwoods can often be restored to a preloss condition with the correct treatment. Contact SERVPRO of The North Fork for fire damage restoration at (631) 591-3771.
