5 Categories of Fire Damage
SERVPRO has 5 Categories of Fire Damage
Mitigation Services: The goal of mitigation is to secure the structure and prevent further damage. Mitigation could include boarding up the area that was damaged to secure the structure and establishing a temporary power hookup. If the structure is wet from the water used by firefighters than emergency dry out procedures will begin to prevent secondary water damage.
Structural Cleaning Services: Cleaning of a fire- damaged structure focuses on removing smoke residues from the structural components and deodorizing odors given off by residues. The restoration company and the insurance adjuster consult and advise the property owner on the restoration process that will be cleaned and what will not be cleaned. This step determines which items can be restored and which items need replacement.
Contents Cleaning Services: All personal belongings will be cleaned of all smoke residues. If the contents can not be cleaned on the jobsite than items will be packed out and moved to another location to be cleaned and repacked and stored. Pack-outs usually happen when the home or business is not secure or is too fire damaged to clean on site.
Specialty Restoration Services: If items such as electronics, dry-cleaning or refinishing special furniture or art work will be sent to specialized subcontractors to be restored.
Reconstruction Services: In some fire situations, structural damage has occurred and restoring cannot be done to preloss condition, so rebuilding is necessary.
