Cleaning Up the Mess After the Fire Trucks Leave

A home with fire damage Initially, firefighting efforts can turn your home into a disaster. The SERVPRO goal is to make the house look "Like it never even happened."

Cleaning Up After The Fire Trucks Have Left

The fire fighting process is seldom pretty. The fire department has a job to: put out the fire, rescue people and animals and limit property damage. Sometimes to do this the firefighters must bring down doors with axes, break windows and open holes in roofs. Then there is the damage caused by the fire itself. For these reasons, a board up is often needed to secure your home from additional damage. In this precarious state, your home in Burton, TX, is vulnerable to storms, vandals and even wild animals.

A Job for Professionals

An emergency board up is not a simple task. Your home after a fire is a notoriously unstable place. Climbing up on the roof with boards and nails is best left to a professional fire mitigation franchise. Not only can trained workers with the appropriate equipment do the job safely, but they can also make sure all gaps are closed. Once the home is secure, the mitigation crew will take the following steps:

  • Inspection and assessment of the property
  • Water removal and drying
  • Removal of soot and smoke damage
  • Cleaning and repair services
  • Restoration

A secure board up allows workers to perform their tasks in safety. They often must contend with water damage as a result of the fire department using fire hoses to put out the blaze.

A Solution to Fire Damage

Both fire and fire fighting efforts can make a mess of your home at first. With the help of trained professionals, though, your home can be restored to its original condition. The goal of a SERVPRO company is to make the home look "Like it never even happened." This takes advanced cleaning methods and specialized equipment.

Technicians employ a variety of cleaning techniques that eliminate smoke odors and clear away soot from all surfaces. A board up is often the beginning of an important process to get your home back in shape.
