Emergency Fire Restoration for New Haven
SERVPRO Fire Cleanup Teams Can Help
Most residential fires occur in enclosed spaces with minor to moderate damages. It is quite rare for a fire to cause actual structural damage to your home. However, gas leaks and other fuel-based fires can lead to severe damage. SERVPRO has an adept team of technicians that can help prepare your property for restoration after a fierce fire.
Before performing fire restoration in your New Haven home, our technicians enact emergency service procedures. Emergency procedures can help to prevent further losses in your home by stopping soot or smoke from traveling into unaffected areas. These procedures also prepare the job site by ensuring it is safe to enter and lay the foundations for a restoration procedure. Our goal is to reduce losses and claims expenses and to minimize inconvenience to the homeowner. Prepping a fire-damaged property helps to increase the overall efficiency of restoration and is the first part of our planning stage. It is normal for emergency procedures to take place during:
- Fire damage restoration
- Fire debris removal
- Smoke removal
The specific parts of prepping a job site can include conducting inspections of the property and neutralizing potential hazards from faulty structure, loose wiring, or debris that may be present. Boarding up parts of the structure and establishing emergency electricity can also help to ensure that technicians can bring in equipment and have sufficient lighting to perform cleaning or deodorizing tasks. Secondary duties that may emerge from the initial inspection of the structure could include drying the property, which may have become wet due to the firefighting procedure. Equally, initial cleaning of the structure can be beneficial. The initial cleaning is most useful on textiles and furniture, which provides a basis for more aggressive cleaning action later in the restoration.
- Cleaning acidic residues from porcelain materials or metal work can help to reduce damage to the property.
- Carpeting can often be pre-conditioned shortly after the inspection phase to help reduce potential damage from residual soots.
- Getting rid of fire debris helps to provide a clear working space for restoration of the structure and reduces potential slip and trip hazards.
