The Emergency Steps We Take After Fire Damage In Roxborough
Fire & Smoke Damage Mitigation with a Fast SERVPRO Response
Fire in the home is frightening. Even after extinguishing the blaze in a Roxborough house, it is natural to feel shaken and to wonder what comes next. The chances are that at least part of your home does not look like it did before the fire and it might not even feel like home.
SERVPRO understands how distressing the aftermath of fire damage in a Roxborough home can be. That is why we handle every call with sensitivity and aim to send our experienced restoration experts to your home as quickly as possible. We carry out our work with an eye on the final goal – restoring your home “Like it never even happened.” We always have the end in mind.
The first stage in restoration is carrying out a series of emergency steps after arriving at your home. These actions help secure your home and prevent further damage so we can complete the cleanup operation.
We start by evaluating your home for any health or safety hazards so we can create a safe environment for restoration. We also board up your home if necessary – such as if windows were blown out by the blaze – to protect it from the elements and intruders.
It is likely that the fire team used water to put out the blaze. As a result, your home might be damp in places. We use fans, air movers and dehumidifiers to dry out your home. Drying prevents further damage and also guards against mold infestation.
Next, the SERVPRO team establishes an emergency electricity supply. Electricity is necessary to provide heat and light and also to power fans, air movers and any other electrical equipment we need.
In some rarer cases, there is a concern about roaches or other pest infestations. In such situations, SERVPRO partners with pest control experts on your behalf to get the problem dealt with as soon as possible.
Once we have established a safe environment and addressed any immediate hazards, we get to work cleaning and deodorizing your home. Our IICRC-certified technicians use a broad range of cleaning actions including scrubbing, immersion, wiping, and HEPA vacuuming to clean your home.
After cleaning, we use air scrubbers, thermal foggers or ozone machines to deodorize your house and remove the smoke odor.
