Our 5 Steps to the Fire Restoration Process!
Whether it started in a nearby brush or right on your stovetop, a fire can wreak havoc on your home. That is why it’s crucial to contact your local SERVPRO of Flagler County fire restoration crew as soon as the damage is done. If you’re wondering how we repair commercial and residential homes, the guide below lists the steps of the restoration process.
5 Steps to the Fire Restoration Process
SERVPRO’s fire restoration crew will start by putting on safety gear so they can enter the site safely. Then, they’ll conduct a thorough inspection of the building, making a note of any soot, smoke, or water damage they encounter along the way. After the fire trucks leave, your home likely suffers from extensive water damage from firefighting efforts.
2. Containment and Board-Up Service
To prevent the smoke particles from drifting throughout the property and causing further damage, such as discoloration, the fire restoration crew will block off the most affected areas. If the fire consumed the roof, they will cover the area with a tarp to protect the property from the elements. Our team of professionals can also board up windows and doors in order to keep your property safe from other weather elements.
3. Water Damage Restoration
If water was used by the property owners or firefighters to stop the fire from spreading in your Palm Coast home, there may be water damage to address as well. The crew might have to rip out soggy carpets and remove wet wallpaper or insulation to prevent future mold growth. If mold has already begun to grow, they will execute remediation tactics to prevent it from spreading.
4. Fire Damage Restoration
This stage begins with soot removal on the walls, ceilings, and contents of the property. To remove particles already floating around, they may use an air scrubber. The crew will also work on restoring charred upholstery, window treatments, and mattresses.
5. Home Repair
Finally, the crew will wrap up the fire restoration process by addressing structural and aesthetic damage to the home. This might include reconstructing walls, frames, or support beams, replacing drywall or flooring, and repainting walls.
Home fires can be devastating both finically and emotionally, especially due to the fact that smoke and water damage from putting out the fire, often amplify the destruction to both the structure and the contents. At SERVPRO of Flagler County, we are highly trained professionals that will help you recover from devastating fire & water damage if you do suffer a structure fire, but we believe that prevention is better than a cure. However, we know that accidents happen. That is why our team is ready to respond to your emergency 24/7/365!
