How SERVPRO Can Restore Your Fire Damaged Home in Albany and Americus

Once your residential property has been impacted by a fire, it's critically important that you start the fire damage remediation process. Fire restoration experts know that a house fire can alter the stability of the structure and safety of your family. Moreover, the complex processes necessary to restore your home make it important and advantageous for you to hire a professional team to complete this work for you. Learn more about fire damage restoration and how industry specialists from SERVPRO can assist you.

Fire Damage Restoration: Basic Techniques

In general, there are four basic ways that a professional remediation company will restore homes damaged by fire. These four ways include:

• drying your home
• removing debris
• cleaning your HVAC system
• rebuilding your home's structure

Learn more about each step in the process by reviewing the following data:

Drying Your Home

After a fire has impacted your property, water damage is the primary issue to address and resolve. Firefighters, for a large house fire, will spray vast volumes of water to extinguish the flames. Unfortunately, damp furniture, drywall, carpeting, and fabrics can all function as a breeding ground for unwanted mold and mildew. Professional fire damage remediation specialists from SERVPRO utilize water pumps, vacuums, dehumidifiers and other machines to make sure that your home becomes as dry as possible. This step is quite important given that the greatest financial burden following a fire results from secondary water damage.

Removing Debris

If you discover personal possessions and other items have been extensively damaged by the fire, these things must be discarded. If they are not, the items can contaminate other regions of the property. SERVPRO, upon request, will provide you an inventory report of salvageable and items that need trashing.  They also can offer you a "pack away" of personal items to be returned to your home upon completion of the fire damage restoration.

Cleaning Your HVAC System

Individuals who have HVAC systems in their homes should note that fires can clog the coils and filters with soot, ashes, and other debris. When this happens, the company handles replacing the damaged equipment. The kinds of repairs that will be necessary are contingent upon how damaged your property is and what kind of smoke the fire has generated. Soot requires skilled expertise along with the proper equipment to remove from the ductwork and air-handler.

Structural Rebuild

In the event that a fire has damaged sections of the structure of your property, they must be replaced. SERVPRO can either execute the repairs or set up an outside construction company. Bear in mind, it is usually less expensive and takes up less time to repair and restore damages to the home rather than to replace fire-damaged materials.
