Fire Damage Restoration Process in Fort Lauderdale Homes
Fort Lauderdale Fire Damage Restoration Including Damage Mitigation?
Fires in Fort Lauderdale homes cause significant damage to the house and contents. Much of the damage is caused by fire, smoke, and residues. In addition, extensive water damage is caused by the fire department dousing the flames to extinguish the fire. The damage can be mitigated after the fire department approves accessing the home.
SERVPRO provides fire damage restoration and mitigation services to Fort Lauderdale homeowners. We can be on-site within four hours after your call and respond to emergencies 24/7. The fire damage restoration process involves six significant steps and can only proceed once the fire department and emergency officials provide clearance. The process steps include the following:
- Damage assessment
- Property security
- Debris removal
- Demolition, water, and moisture removal
- Smoke removal and cleanup
- Reconstruction and Restoration
Damage assessment – confirm the building is safe to enter and assess the damage from fire, smoke, and water. Verify the full scope of work and inform our client and their insurance adjuster.
Property security – install fencing around the property if needed, board up windows and doors, and tarps on the roof to minimize additional environmental damage.
Debris removal – begin removing debris, including contents damaged beyond repair.
Demolition, water, and moisture removal – remove the damaged structure, including drywall, insulation, and flooring materials. Complete water extraction and dry the structure.
Smoke removal and cleanup – remove soot and smoke residue from all interior and exterior surfaces, do duct and furnace cleaning, and clean all contents.
Reconstruction and restoration – rebuild fire-damaged areas, including structure, cabinets, walls, and flooring materials. This step may also require duct, electrical systems, fixtures replacement, etc.
