Fire & Water - Cleanup & Restoration

SERVPRO Makes The Rounds

6/14/2023 (Permalink)

When you've suffered a fire or water, your first step is to hire an experienced fire and water cleanup and restoration company like SERVPRO.

SERVPRO maintains highly qualified and trained professionals to deal with the mitigation after a fire or water damage.  The mitigation includes specific protocols, processes, actions, and activities that are taken to reduce or eliminate long-term risk to people and property from hazards and their impacts.  Once the personal property has been properly removed from the loss, the first step in mitigation is having a demolition performed correctly.  There is a proper way to remove a variety of materials without damaging adjacent materials. 

At SERVPRO, our crew chiefs and production managers have the knowledge, skill, and experience to ensure home or business mitigation needs are handled correctly.  There are seven reasons why SERVPRO removes materials:

[1] we remove materials to eliminate safety hazards,

[2] we remove materials that have suffered primary damage and are not restorable,

[3] we remove porous materials that have come in contact with contamination,

[4] we remove porous materials that are holding odor,

[5] we remove vapor barriers to assist with drying efforts,

[6] we remove materials to reduce drying time, and

[7] we remove materials to open cavities or areas to provide additional needed services. 

AN IMPORTANT REMINDER DURING WILDFIRE SEASON:  Many families choose to live in remote, wooded forests or wildland areas surrounded by trees which can create a real danger to your home due to wildfire.  It is important to know how to protect your home.  One of the many steps to consider is the fire resistance of your home, the land surrounding your home, and the nature of the vegetation that grows near it.  You can locate a homeowner's checklist on the FEMA website that will help you learn what you can do before a wildfire happens in your area.  Do not hesitate to contact your local fire department for information about local fire laws, building codes, and protection measures.  Everyone needs to be ready for emergency evacuation as it may be the only way to protect your family and business in a wildfire. Know where to go and what to bring with you. You should plan several escape routes in case roads are blocked by a wildfire.

SERVPRO specializes in the cleanup and restoration of residential and commercial property after a fire, smoke or water damage event. Our staff is highly trained in property damage restoration. From initial and ongoing training at SERVPRO’s corporate training facility to regular IICRC-industry certification, rest assured our staff is equipped with the knowledge to restore your property.
