What Should I Expect with Post- Fire Loss Cleaning of My Home?
SERVPRO Works Hard to Cleanup and Restore Our Vineyards Neighbors' Homes after a Fire-Damaging Incident
Many homeowners mistakenly believe that restorers like our SERVPRO team can approach fire losses in Vineyards residences with the intent to make the damages ‘like new.’ The idea here is that we clean and recover a property beyond the damages of the fire itself and even address pre-existing conditions in the structure that prevent the house from having the aesthetic appeal you might prefer. Knowing what to expect when preloss condition cleaning and restoration begins in your home can ensure that you can be satisfied that these known and realistic goals were reached.
Fire damage to Vineyards homes can be a devastating force that spreads from room to room quickly without the needed mitigation and containment steps that our professionals bring with them. When you get your first look at your damaged home after extinguishment efforts complete, you might be overwhelmed with the image. Our management can help you to make sense of this destruction and show you that widespread damage does not always equate to a total loss.
What is a key step in the restoration process?
Scoping is a pre-mitigation task that involves a thorough inspection and evaluation of the damaged property. With multiple layers of fire loss effects in a house after a disaster, each of these potential obstacles must get carefully documented and prepared for by our responding SERVPRO technicians. Much of this scoping of the work can happen alongside our customers so that we can establish any conditions in the house that might have existed before the disaster and do not need to be a part of the restoration process.
So, once scoping is done, does SERVPRO have the equipment to help get rid of the pungent odors from the fire?
• air scrubbers
• hydroxyl generators
• combination charcoal filtration units
• ULV ultra-light volume foggers
• Thermal foggers
• Deodorizing Beads and Gels
By determining what damages existed before the fire and the structural compromise it caused, we can streamline mitigation and restoration efforts to make a recovery as efficient and cost-effective as possible for our customers.
Cleaning up after a fire loss incident can be a necessary step in making these emergencies “Like it never even happened.” No matter how severe these conditions might be, our SERVPRO of East Naples team has the equipment and the experienced technicians to help.
