Fire Damage Restoration Process
Fire in house is the owner’s worst nightmare. Just the thought of most of the house stuff going up in flames is enough to make most people’s skin crawl. But a faster response is the key to help prevent further damage and reduce the restoration cost. Damage from water is also common in the event of a fire, as the fire department will have to douse your home when putting out the fire. SERVPRO of Tracy specializes in both fire and water damage restoration. Our goal is to restore your home to pre-fire condition and make it “ Like it never even happened.”
The following strategy is followed by SERVPRO of Tracy in order to achieve its goal.
Initial Inspection: The very first step is the initial inspection by our team. They inspect not only the immediate affected area but also the adjacent rooms or areas to see how far the smoke and soot has travelled. All this information is used to create a plan, cost estimate and time frame for the cleanup process.
Removing Debris and Safeguarding Property: Once the initial assessment is finished, we begin clearing out the debris from the property. If the doors, windows or ceilings were compromised by the fire, our team will use tarps or boardups to secure them before they move on with any other cleanup efforts.
Restoration of Belongings and Furniture: Then the next step will be restoring the valuable items and belongings. Our team will make list of inventory of what is salvageable and what isn’t. The restorable items get a detailed cleaning. Some of the items are packed and moved out to warehouse for special cleaning.
Deodorizing : To neutralize the odor particles in the porous and non porous surfaces, the following methods are used for deodorizing.
- EPA registered cleaning agent.
- Air Scrubbers with HEPA filtration.
- ULV Ultra-Low Volume fogging equipment.
- Hydroxyl Generator
- Ozone equipment.
