SERVPRO®’s Steps to Fire Remediation

6/6/2023 (Permalink)

Let’s be honest, nobody steps into homeownership anticipating losing everything in a fire. Fire damage is never, ever part of a plan because it is so unpredictable. There isn’t a way to predict how a fire will start or affect your home and sentimental items. The following are the initial steps that SERVPRO® will take to get your home back to preloss condition.

  1. Board-Up

Windows and doors can be destroyed in a fire, leaving a home open to the elements and pests. SERVPRO® will come out as soon as the sight is released to board up the home to prevent additional damage if it is needed.

  1. Dry Out

People don’t associate water damage when a fire occurs; they often go together. Not only can fires cause pipes to burst, but firefighters can also cause damage when putting out the flames.  Our crews have the proper, specialized equipment to stabilize the environment.

  1. Cleaning & Deodorization

In addition to setting equipment for the drying process, SERVPRO® will clean the and deodorize the area. During a fire, soot tends to blanket the home and it does require a specific process to properly clean.

  1. Contents Pack-Out

The structure is not the only thing that is destroyed in a fire, a lot of the times belongings are also impacted. When SERVPRO® arrives onsite, the technicians will inspect contents to determine salvageability. If a pack out is needed, contents are immediately inventoried.
