Four Ways To Remediate Your Property After Fire Damage
When something drastic happens in our homes or businesses, such as a fire, we aren’t always thinking of the next steps involved to repairing the damage done. This is when SERVPRO of The East End is often called in to make sure that the fire remediation process is executed as efficiently as possible and the property is brought back to its original state.
Fire remediation is the process of cleaning up the debris and damage caused after a fire occurs. According to enlightenme.com, there are four main steps that a restoration company can take to remediate the fire damage on your property.
1. Drying the home
Water damage is one of the biggest concerns following a fire. As the water sits, it collects bacteria, contaminants and becomes the perfect place for mold to grow. SERVPRO of The East End has the proper equipment to dry out the area. We have dehumidifiers, large fans and other machines that quickly circulate the air, filter it out and thoroughly clean your home or business.
2. Cleaning the HVAC system
If an HVAC system is present on your property, it is a strong possibility that the filters or coils in the equipment will get clogged from the soot and debris caused by the fire damage. Depending on the severity of the damage, we may have to replace the filters or perform extensive repairs.
3. Rebuilding the damaged structure
The structure of a property is very important to keeping your family and employees safe. If the structure is damaged, it may need to be rebuilt, restored or replaced. We can assist in the steps involved to making sure your property's structure is safely restored or rebuilt.
4. Removing the last of the debris
Any contents that are unable to be salvaged will need to be removed to make sure that they don’t contaminate the rest of the home or workplace. Some contents may be difficult to restore back to their original state, but this is also something that SERVPRO of The East End is able to assist with. We make sure that everything is cleaned properly before putting it back into the home or workplace to ensure that there is not debris contaminating other belongings on the property.
