Restore or Replace?

We focus on restoring versus replacing because restoring the affected areas of your property is substantially less costly than demolishing and replacing those areas. This “restore first” mentality also allows us to get your home or business back to pre-fire condition quicker and with less disruption.

This image shows the aftermath of a kitchen fire. SERVPRO was able to clean and deodorization the kitchen and most of the items in the kitchen.

The image is of one of the walls in the kitchen that had significant smoke and soot damage. SERVPRO was able to clean the wall to look white again and remove the smoke smell in the kitchen.

When Fire Strikes

SERVPRO was dispatched to a job in this past week to a fire. This fire ended up being a total loss but our crew still had many tasks to do on this jobsite before the home is taken down.

The crew performed an inventory list of all items in the house whether salvageable or not. This list includes all items from silverware to furniture and so much more.

After the inventory has been completed our staff performed a pack out of the items to bring back to the warehouse for Ozone Treatment and Cleaning of salvageable items.

An Ozone Treatment deodorizes, disinfects, and kills or removes dangerous or irritating airborne particles in indoor environments. 

The crew finished up with cleaning out the house of all the debris that was left from the fire.

Cleaning Up Debris After The Fire

This picture shows one of our technicians cleaning up debris in a house after a fire.  The insulation from the ceiling above and the drywall had to be bagged and removed from the house for disposal.  The fire department had broken down the ceiling to get to the ceiling joists in the attic above to check for hot spots. 

We were called in to clean up the debris.  It is important to wear proper personal protective equipment to protect yourself when working with materials possibly affected by fire.  We also bag up the materials to contain the mess from being spread through the other work areas.

You, the homeowner, have only one contact during the entire process. We oversee every step to get you back into your home as quickly as possible.

Vent Cleaning After A Fire

It is incredible how much soot and smoke can get sucked in by a vent in a residential HVAC system during a fire.  Depending on the location of the opening in relation to the fire, a return can circulate the smoke throughout the house causing more damage.  

For this reason a complete cleaning of the duct system is usually required to keep from recirculating airborne smoke and soot throughout the house. Generally a good indicator for if the system needs to be cleaned is by taking a look at the filter.
