What does SERVPRO do after fire damage?
Mitigation Services—The goal of mitigation is to secure the structure and prevent further damage. Mitigation could include boarding up openings to secure the structure, winterizing the plumbing to prevent frozen pipes, and establishing a temporary source of electricity to the structure. Structures that are wet due to fire-fighting procedures will need emergency drying to prevent secondary water damage.
Structural Cleaning Services—Cleaning of a fire-damaged structure focuses on removing smoke residues from a building’s structural components and deodorizing odors given off by residues. The restorer and adjuster consult and advise the property owner on which structural components can be cleaned and which cannot be cleaned. Repair or replacement is needed for components that do not respond to cleaning.
Contents Cleaning Services—Personal property within a residence, office, or other building must be cleaned of smoke residues. In some fire situations, the contents can be cleaned on the jobsite. Other situations require contents to be packed and moved to a separate location for cleaning and storage. Pack-outs could occur because a building is not secure or is too damaged for on-site cleaning.
Specialty Restoration Services—Restorers of contents often subcontract specialty cleaning of certain contents: electronics cleaning, dry cleaning of clothing, furniture refinishing, and cleaning of expensive artwork.
Reconstruction Services—In some fire situations, structural components may be damaged to the point they cannot be restored to preloss condition. The work of reconstructing and repairing fire-damaged structural components may require different skills than those of standard home remodeling. Fire damage restorers typically perform cleaning services while licensed general contractors provide reconstruction services.
