Home with exterior fire damage and boarded up windows. Emergency board-up services are essential after a fire or other disaster.

After a fire, one of the most crucial steps in the restoration process is emergency board-up services. Emergency board-up is the process of securing and protecting a property after a fire, flood, or other disasters. It involves boarding up windows, doors, and other openings to prevent further damage to the property and protect it from potential theft or vandalism.

SERVPRO of Oakville/Mehlville, a leading provider of fire and water damage restoration services, offers emergency board-up services to homeowners and businesses affected by disasters. Here's what you need to know about emergency board up and how SERVPRO of Oakville/Mehlville can help.

Why is Emergency Board Up Important?

Emergency board-up is important for several reasons. First, it helps protect the property from further damage. After a fire, water, and smoke damage can continue to spread and cause additional harm to the structure and contents of the property. By boarding up windows and doors, SERVPRO can prevent these elements from entering the property and causing further damage.

Second, emergency board up helps deter theft and vandalism. When a property is left unsecured after a fire, it is vulnerable to looting and vandalism. By boarding up the property, SERVPRO can discourage potential thieves and vandals from entering and causing further damage.
