What Happens in a Room Totaled by Fire Damage?
From Structural Issues to Ordering Replacement Furniture, SERVPRO Can Help with Every Step of the Process
In some fires, very little can be done to contain the blaze, and entire rooms or portions of a home may be lost at a time. Although our fast-responding mitigation strategy helps to drive down costs for any fire damage restoration project, some fires simply cannot be stopped. When this happens, we make sure to work closely with insurance providers and the homeowner in order to repair and replace everything we can.
New Materials and Structure
Severe fire damage in White House often requires replacement of materials and structural elements in order to return the home to its natural and normal appearance. Our technicians can carefully survey a damaged room so as to know what materials are needed where, and can help to install new materials in the home. This can vary greatly in amount and type, from limited wall repainting or repair to full-room replacement and brick relaying. No matter the obstacle, our technicians are prepared to surmount it to help get your home back to a livable state.
Across the entire room, intense and thorough cleaning is necessary to get a clear look at the materials underneath and to understand the exact specifications of the project. In many cases, heavy soot and ash may obscure a surface and appear as a burned-out region, while in reality, the area is virtually untouched by flame. We implement a thorough and extensive cleaning process when dealing with any fire, and will know what to replace when we're done.
Furniture and Belongings
We employ both in-house and contracted experts to help salvage and restore furniture and belongings that have sustained fire damage, and many items will typically be viable for restoration in your home. Should we not be able to restore or repair an item, we will always consult you and your insurance provider before ordering or making replacements. The homeowner always gets the final say in what is and is not replaced or thrown out following a fire.
