The Focus of Fire Restoration Inspections in Farmington
Fire Restoration Relies on Thorough Inspections
It is often important for responding SERVPRO professionals to grasp the nature of the restoration project and the efforts required to return properties to preloss condition. Fires are particularly destructive to the building materials and contents, making early actions like thorough inspections a crucial part of the total recovery service we provide.
Understanding the Scope of the Work
Fire restoration of Farmington properties is not the same for every structure. We must calculate the condition of specific areas, work on restoring contents and building materials, and create a restoration plan including vital elements like:
- Debris removal
- Structural drying
- Surface cleaning
How Damaged Is the Structure?
Structural elements can be severely damaged by migrating fire loss effects. From surface damage like soot deposits to combustion severe enough to warrant controlled demolition, the inspection process must choose how to manage threatened building materials. In some situations, SERVPRO must utilize our general contractor license to remove the compromised structure.
Can Contents Be Restored?
Contents are another focus of the inspection process. Production management conducts an item-by-item review of personal belongings and furniture in the house to catalog loss. Some affected items are unsalvageable and must be discarded. Other objects with only mild damage can be cleaned on-site or relocated to our nearby warehouse for intricate cleaning, deodorization, and safe storage.
How Can SERVPRO Help with Cleanup?
Once the inspection process has helped determine the damage to the property and the appropriate response, our SERVPRO professionals must get started on mitigating loss. Cleaning up after fire damages means providing powerful solutions to threats like soot deposits like solvents and detergents while minimizing the damage to salvageable elements.
