After a fire destroys your property, your focus is on clean up, restoration, and getting back to good as fast as possible. If everything goes according to plan, your life can resume fairly quickly. Sometimes, the opposite happens, possibly delaying your income and chances of returning to normal at all.

Could I be delaying recovery after a fire incident?

Immediate action after fire damage is essential. Your actions can end up lengthening the recovery process, especially if you do not understand the loss clearly. Our SERVPRO teams have 25 years of resolving such incidents, a typical restoration involves:

  • Cleaning fire residues 
  • Packing and inventory of salvageable items
  • Drying the water damage caused during firefighting
  • Demolition of fire-damaged materials
  • Odor elimination
  • Reconstruction & rebuilding

Overlooking any steps can delay the fire restoration process. For instance, cleaning before demolishing walls or ceilings and removing damaged materials would be a waste of time and money since you would end up cleaning again.
