SERVPRO Tarps Fire Damaged Roofs, Boards Up Structures during Restoration Work in Montgomery

Steps We Take to Secure Fire-Damaged Homes in Montgomery

The security of your home plummets after a disaster. Newly created openings give a wide berth to both the weather, critters, and trespassers. Many of our customers in Montgomery choose to use our building services team alongside our mitigation and restoration specialists. Using our extra services, under General Contractor License # 41839, decreases the length of time your family remains inconvenienced, regardless of the type of disaster.

When your house in Montgomery sustains fire damage, you need more than mitigation and restoration. You also need services that make your home secure, even as work progresses. SERVPRO understands the concerns of homeowners, and we offer several options that effectively keep your property secured against further damage.

The majority of people stay outside of the perimeter of fencing, including the temporary kind. When fire damage is located in other areas of a house away from the street, neighbors might not realize the extent of the damage. Highly visible fencing lets them know that the area is off-limits, at least until we finish working and your family moves back home.

To protect your belongings from the few individuals who disregard such visible signs, we also provide move out services, as well as temporary warehouse storage for non-damaged items. We store your belongings near the same area where our smoke and fire restoration technicians work at cleaning and deodorizing the things damaged in the fire. To help your family, we move all of your belongings back at one time, complete with updated inventory sheets.

The techniques approved by the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) are incredibly useful in the restoration of homes and businesses. Securing tarps over openings in the roof after a fire helps ensure that our IICRC-certified teams retain their efficiency throughout the mitigation process. Our building services team can also help rebuild or repair the roof and its components, eliminating another facet of a fire-related disaster.
Boarding up any broken windows can help ensure security, as well as help us maintain strict environmental conditions inside your house while mitigation technicians work. We use three different methods to secure windows and doors. Screwing sections of drywall directly onto the exterior frame is the fastest method, but leaves permanent holes. Instead, we prefer to either cut boards that we can slip into place. Sometimes, however, our employees cannot do this. When we need a third method, we use the tension created between an exterior piece of particle board combined with a 2 x 4 placed on the inside of the window. In between these two, a set of longer screws hold both tightly in place.

SERVPRO of Montgomery's mitigation, cleaning, restoration, and rebuilding specialists all work together to make fire damage a thing of the past, “Like it never even happened” for homeowners. If your residence is in Chisholm, Highland Park, Highland Gardens, and Centennial Hill, call us at (334) 273-0992, 24/7, any day of the year, so we can help your family recover as quickly as possible.
