Fire Restoration Process
The first thing you want to look for when contacting a fire restoration company is if they offer emergency services so that they are able to come out very quickly when initially contacted to provide immediate relief to the property.
It really is the job of the emergency services and fire department to put out the fire, but you will still need a restoration company to prevent the damage from spreading throughout your property.
The next step in the fire restoration process is assessing the fire, smoke and soot that has traveled throughout the building as well as checking walls and furniture.
This step is important because only by assessing the extent of the damage can the restoration company come up with a plan to execute upon and give you a quote for how much it should cost and an estimate of how long it should take.
When the restoration project first begins, the main priority will always be to prevent damage from getting worse. Also, for SERVPRO of Glendora / San Dimas we prioritize restoring rather than replacing and this can significantly reduce of the overall cost.
Sometimes fire damage restoration and water damage restoration go hand in hand. For instance if a building has a fire that causes a pipe to burst or a water tank burst then the restoration company will work first to stop the damage from spreading.
After a fire you will notice your property looks dark, stained and charred. First the restoration company will clean up all this damage and get your property looking as normal as possible. Also, during the restoration process, companies will make sure to remove any odors that are from the smoke & fire.
This next stage is where companies begin restoring furniture and repairing the damage cause by the fire. The goal of this step is to get your property looking as good as possible.
