- Emergency Contact
After the fire has been extinguished, be sure to call SERVPRO immediately. We understand that no fire is the same, which is why we work with you to ensure that we personalize our restoration services to fit your unique needs. Making SERVPRO your first call guarantees that we will arrive immediately with the appropriate equipment and resources to best serve your needs.
- Inspection and Fire Damage Assessment
When our team of fire damage experts arrives on the scene, they will survey the extent of the property’s fire damage. Depending on the scope of the fire, smoke, and soot loss, we will craft the most effective restoration plan for your home or business.
- Immediate Board-Up and Roof-Tarp Services
Fires can destroy objects such as windows, roofs, and doors, leaving areas of the home exposed and susceptible to further damage. In order to prevent any additional damage, our team will cover these areas with tarps or boards before we begin work, keeping your home safe during the entire restoration process.
- Water Removal and Drying
During the process of extinguishing a fire, it is not uncommon for the affected property to sustain some amount of water damage. If your home or business has experienced water damage, our team will first remove all standing water. Next, we will utilize air movers and dehumidifiers to thoroughly remove the remaining water in order to complete the process of drying the property.
- Removal of Smoke and Soot from All Surfaces
The next step in our fire restoration process is removing any traces of smoke and soot that remain on surfaces, including ceilings and walls, after a fire. We utilize special equipment in order to make certain that all smoke and soot is removed.
- Cleaning and Sanitizing
After removing smoke and soot residue, we work to clean and sanitize objects that have endured fire damage. We thoroughly clean, sanitize, and disinfect every salvageable item using a wide variety of cleaning techniques. Additionally, we make certain that all odors are eradicated by putting fogging equipment and industrial scrubbers to use. Our goal is to give your home or business a superior clean.
To finish our fire restoration process, we place the finishing touches on the project by completing major or minor repairs to restore your home or business to its condition prior to the fire. Major repairs can involve rebuilding areas or rooms of the property that have been damaged. Minor repairs may include replacing drywall, installing new carpet, or giving a room a fresh coat of paint.
