Needed Restoration After Fire Damages

Across the nation, it is estimated that more than 350,000 house fires occur every year. Varying degrees of damage might not always warrant the full designation of a structure fire, but the frequency of these emergencies requires our SERVPRO team to stay prepared.

To recover after Harrison residential fire and smoke damage in a residence, our responding technicians must offer:

  • Emergency Services – The first step our team can take in disaster relief is protecting the structure and its contents through pre-inspection board-up, air filtration, and debris removal.
  • Mitigative Strategies – Mitigation follows emergency services and coincides with a detailed record of the damage to the property and the necessary steps to restore the residence. From water removal to content management, mitigation is a critical process.
  • Cleaning Needs – Surface cleaning and soot removal are one of the universal needs after a fire. We have powerful cleaners and solvents to help achieve this. 
  • Repairing the Structure – Structure fires are known for their destructive impact on the building. Combustion creates situations where extensive build-back services are necessary to return a property to preloss condition.

Harrisonburg fire damage events require a team of restoration professionals capable of making fast changes and navigating hundreds of restoration questions and obstacles. From the first notice of loss, our SERVPRO professionals are beginning to provide necessary restoration and mitigation solutions.

Can Emergency Services Help Fire Damaged Homes?

Emergency services are a combination of the earliest efforts to prevent situations like structural collapse or hazardous conditions for occupants or responding technicians. The urgency of these actions often has them preceding pre-job scoping.

How Does Fire Damage Mitigation Occur?

Mitigation is one of the more critical restoration phases, as it seeks to resolve pressing concerns that threaten the structure and its occupants. This can include the careful management of damaged contents and personal belongings. Mitigative actions can also describe needed efforts for removing water after extinguishment.

Focused Cleaning After Fire Damage

Cleaning is a way to return a property to its original condition. There are dozens of proven approaches, much of which are created to overcome formidable effects like soot and smoke damage.

  • Removing Smoke Soils and Soot – Residues can be a difficult obstacle to overcome, especially in wet environments. We have multiple products to help emulsify or dissolve soil deposits. 
  • Deep Carpet Cleaning – Hot water extraction cleaning breaks sediment loose at the base of carpeted flooring and removes it with the high-powered onboard vacuum.
  • Deodorization – We must also work to eliminate overwhelming and offensive odors that have developed in the living space. These smells do not naturally dissipate, so direct action with deodorants and neutralizing tools is necessary.

Post-Fire Build-Back Services

Structures fires can be disruptive and destructive. Damage to construction materials and the house assemblies is expected, so we arrive with experienced professionals that can help. We have a general contractor license to perform needed build-back services after home fire damage. From the initially controlled demolition to the reinstallation of missing structural elements to return a property to its original condition, we can seamlessly transition to repairs and reconstruction after restoration.
