FIRE DAMAGE RESTORATION STEPS FOR RESTORING THE PROPERTY
You should never try to remediate your property on your own after a fire. SERVPRO of Litchfield/West Phoexnix, a fire damage restoration professional has the experience needed to observe the proper fire restoration process to make your home safe again.
There are certain processes professionals use when rebuilding a house after a fire and repairing fire damage, and as a homeowner, knowing what these processes look like is helpful.
1. CONFIRM THE PROPERTY IS STABILIZED AND IS SAFE TO ENTER
The first step of a remediation professional is to confirm that the property is safe to enter. They’ll check for signs of structural damage that compromises the home and carefully inspect the property from the outside before opening the door.
2. MINIMIZE DAMAGE
Smoke and soot can cause damage even after the fire has been extinguished. You and the professionals working in your home should be cautious of soot staining, mold and mildew, rust and corrosion and the air quality in the home.
3. REMOVE SOOT AND DEBRIS
Before any water damage or fire damage restoration processes can begin, all debris and soot must be removed from the home.
4. REMOVE PERSONAL POSSESSIONS TOO DAMAGED TO RESTORE
Any items that are too damaged to repair should be removed from the home.
5. ELIMINATE EXCESS WATER AND DRY WET SURFACES
Professionals should clean up any standing water as soon as possible before running other water restoration equipment.
6. BEGIN DEODORIZING, DEEP CLEANING AND REMOVING STAINS
It’s important to consider what items should be deep cleaned and restored and what items are too damaged and should be replaced instead.
