Transforming Desolation Into Renewal: How Do I Recover From Fire Damage To My Property?

11/8/2023 (Permalink)

Damage from a fire to your Hermitage/Donelson property can be one of the most devastating experiences. The aftermath leaves you with belongings destroyed, soot and smoke odors - which are also unhealthy to breathe in - and a building that may be uninhabitable. It’s also very likely that you will face water damage due to firefighting efforts. It’s a lot to handle alone.

At SERVPRO, we understand how this will affect you, your loved ones, your workforce, and anyone closely associated with the disaster. We are uniquely positioned to handle all damage you may experience on your property. Such situations cause stress, confusion, and a feeling of vulnerability. Our team will treat you with respect and empathy and your home and belongings with the utmost care.

What Is SERVPRO’s Fire Damage Restoration Process?

If a fire occurs at your location and you need help, this is what our fire damage restoration process looks like:

Step 1: Emergency Contact

  • The restoration process begins when you call us. Our representative will ask questions regarding the fire damage event to help us respond immediately with the appropriate equipment and resources. 

Step 2: Inspection and Fire Damage Assessment

  • We carefully inspect and test adjoining rooms of your property to determine the extent of the fire, smoke, and soot damage. This step is crucial to developing a plan of action. 

Step 3: Immediate Board-Up and Roof-Tarp Service

  • Fire damage can often compromise windows, walls, and roofs. To maintain security and to protect against further damage, we can board up missing windows and walls and place tarps on damaged roofs. 

Step 4: Water Removal and Drying (if water damage is present)

  • The water removal process begins almost immediately and removes most of the water. We then use dehumidifiers and air movers to remove the remaining water and complete the drying process. 

Step 5: Removal of Smoke and Soot from All Surfaces

  • We use specialized equipment and techniques to remove smoke and soot from ceilings, walls, and other surfaces. 

Step 6: Cleaning and Sanitizing

  • We clean, sanitize, and disinfect all the restorable items and structures damaged by the fire. We use various cleaning techniques to restore your belongings to pre-fire condition. We’re also trained to remove odors using industrial air scrubbers and fogging equipment.

Step 7: Restoration

  • Restoration is the final step—getting your home or business to its pre-fire condition. Restoration may involve minor repairs, such as replacing drywall, painting, and installing new carpet, or significant repairs, such as the reconstruction of various areas or rooms in a home or business.
