Fire Damage Restoration Services in Montgomery
SERVPRO's Five Categories of Fire Damage Restoration
Most Montgomery house fires do not cause massive damage to the structure itself. The majority of the time and money spent on restoration and remediation is to clean and preserve personal property.
Our overall goals are to restore the home and its contents to its pre-damaged state and prevent any secondary damage where possible. To accomplish this, SERVPRO divides Montgomery fire damage restoration efforts into five categories.
First comes Mitigation Services to secure the home and prevent additional damage. We can do this by wrapping exposed pipes to prevent freezing and rusting and boarding up broken windows or doors the fire department had to force open to combat a fire. If needed, we can set up a temporary source of electricity and then install pumps to remove water and set up fans, air movers, and dehumidifiers to begin reducing the humidity level to dry out property and lower the chance of a mold infestation.
Now, SERVPRO technicians begin Structural Cleaning Services to remove smoke residues and odors from the house. We do so with a combination of dry and wet cleaning methods to remove residues and a variety of cleaning agents and ozone generators to destroy odor particles. If we determine that a section of wall or a furnace is not restorable, we recommend replacement.
Replacement is part of our Reconstruction Services. For minor items like hanging new drywall or installing a new appliance, we can do the work. For major reconstruction, our team leaders recommend engaging a licensed general contractor.
Other technicians begin Contents Cleaning Services to remove residues and odors from personal property. Where possible, we attempt to clean and restore items at home. For items with heavy residues, or if the structure is unsafe or cannot be secured, we remove the property to our facility for cleaning.
If an item is exceptionally valuable, it needs what we define as Specialty Restoration Services. That includes artwork and high-end electronic equipment. We include dry-cleaning in this category since we do not perform this type of restoration.
Even when a fire does little structural damage, restoration work for your home still requires a professional team. SERVPRO of Montgomery has returned area homes to their pre-fire condition for over two decades. Call today at (334) 273-0992 to schedule a visit from one of our inspectors. We are here for you.
