Effective Fire Damage Mitigation in Waterford

Mitigating fire damage means a suitable solution for many pressing threats and concerns that homes experience after extinguishment. Once the house is cleared for entry by first responders, we can work fast to determine the need for helpful actions like:

Removing Soot from Surfaces and Contents

Soot deposits present an immediate threat to sensitive surfaces. The acidic composition common to many of these smoke residues can have irreversible effects on the finish of furniture, cabinets, and countertops. Our SERVPRO team quickly removes these threats as fast as possible to protect the underlying substrate and make the overall restoration process more streamlined. 

Deodorization Options for Trapped Smoke Odors in Waterford Homes

Harsh smoke odors are a common threat for homes and businesses following nearly all fires. Removing these formidable malodors is one of the final steps of restoring comfortable living conditions. As such, we arrive with multiple types of deodorizing products and equipment for fast and thorough neutralization of open-air smells and trapped scents in porous materials.

Our Fire Restoration Process

Every fire damage event is a little different and requires a unique solution, but the general process stays the same. The steps listed below illustrate our process for the “typical” fire damage emergency.

Step 1: Emergency Contact

The fire restoration process begins when you call us. Our consultant will guide you through the crisis and may ask several questions to help us better understand the type of fire damage you experienced, determining the equipment and resources needed.

Step 2: Inspection and Fire Damage Assessment

We determine the scope of the fire and smoke damage by examining the affected areas and by testing the adjoining rooms for smoke and soot damage. An accurate assessment is crucial to the planning process. 

Step 3: Immediate Board-Up and Roof-Tarp Service (if needed)

Fire damage can often compromise windows, walls, and roofs. To maintain security and to protect against further damage, we can board up missing windows and walls and place tarps on damaged roofs. 

Step 4: Water Removal and Drying (if water damage is present)

If needed, we can begin the water removal process with powerful pumps and extraction units. This removes most of the water. We complete the water removal and drying process with industrial-strength dehumidifiers and air movers. 

Step 5: Removal of Smoke and Soot from All Surfaces

We use specialized equipment and techniques to remove smoke and soot from ceilings, walls, and other surfaces. 

Step 6: Cleaning and Sanitizing

We clean and sanitize the restorable items and structures damaged by the fire. Our professionals use a variety of cleaning techniques to restore your belongings to pre-fire condition. We’re also trained to remove odors using industrial air scrubbers and fogging equipment.

Step 7: Restoration

Restoration is the process or restoring your home or business to its pre-fire condition. Restoration may involve relatively minor repairs, such as replacing drywall and painting, or it could include significant reconstruction of entire rooms.
