Fire in your Prairie Village, KS, home can be a traumatic experience, requiring time to emotionally recover from. However, after the fire is extinguished, fire damage remediation needs to begin as soon as possible. The professionals at ServiceMaster DSI know that the longer fire damage is left untreated, the more likely it is to become permanent.
Taking urgent steps will help to minimize the damage caused by soot residues and smoke odors.
Today, we’ll look at the steps the professionals at ServiceMaster DSI take to ensure successful fire damage remediation in your home.
Step 1: Call the Fire Damage Remediation Experts
Fire damage remediation begins as soon as you call a remediation firm. Because we understand that disaster doesn’t follow a schedule, we’re available 24/7/365.
During the call you will have to provide some details, so our restoration team has a clear idea of the type of fire damage you have experienced, including:
- Information about the extent of the damage. Was the entire house engulfed by fire or only one room?
- Materials (such as natural, protein, or synthetic substances) that were in the house during the fire. These details will help our restoration team determine the type of cleaning your home needs.
Step 2: Home Inspection
Once we arrive at your home, we’ll perform an inspection and develop a timeline for the restoration work that needs to be performed. We look at things like the extent of the damage, materials burned, and what type of fire occurred. All of this will influence how we proceed and what types of techniques and equipment we use.
Step 3: Content Pack Out and Storage
We’ll begin going through the belongings affected by the fire and perform pack out on items that can be restored. They will be taken to a secure, off-site location where we’ll restore them to their pre-loss condition. Everything is meticulously recorded and tracked to ensure nothing is lost or damaged.
Step 4: Fire Damage Remediation
Now, we’ll get started with performing the necessary fire damage remediation tasks. Throughout the work, we’ll keep detailed documentation of what we’re doing for you and your insurance company. Some of the tasks we may perform include:
- Smoke damage and odor removal
- Soot damage removal
- Board up services
- Restoration of affected belongings
- Water damage cleanup (if water was used to extinguish the fire)
Step 5: Final Walk-through
After the work is completed, a final walk-through will be completed by your insurance adjuster to ensure that all the tasks have been completed as documented.
