Fire & Water - Cleanup & Restoration

Advance Residents Trust SERVPRO for Professional Fire and Smoke Damage Restoration and Cleanup

This SERVPRO video shows the devastation that even a small-scale fire can deliver to Advance properties. The flyover shows a home on fire and mentions that after the flames get put out, the fire restoration tasks begin in Advance properties. 

Common Issues in Advance Properties During Water & Fire Damage Restorations

SERVPRO technicians are Faster to Any Size Disaster, and that includes fire damage remediation. A damaged roof is often part of the fire restoration process. SERVPRO technicians make temporary repairs to ensure that rain does not enter the property during the fire and smoke damage mitigation. Removal of the charred building materials is not preliminary action by SERVPRO techs in Advance structures. Sheetrock, flooring, and carpet that received burns usually have zero potential for restoration, and the presence of these items only increases the smoke odors in the home or business. 

Water damage is a frequent companion of fire damage in Advance properties. As the video shows, copious amounts of water may get used by the fire department to extinguish the fire. Afterward, this water mixed with soot needs to get extracted from the home. Another tactic used in fighting fires that leaves an enormous mess in homes is pulling burning articles in the property to the center of the room and repeatedly wetting them down. This stops the fire from spreading in Advance structures but usually ruins everything in a pile with water damage. As part of the fire and water cleanup process, SERVPRO techs inspect each item to see if it has the potential for reuse through their various professional cleaning methods. As stated in the video, SERVPRO technicians are specialists in fire damage cleanup and water damage restoration. They carefully inspect the property and determine if the water and fire damage needs controlled demo to dry interior wall cavities or subfloor. 

Fire Restoration and Odor Control by SERVPRO in Advance Properties

When a residential or commercial property receives fire and smoke damage in Advance, as stated in the video, the technicians from SERVPRO work quickly to turn around the damage and restore the home and contents. One of the key elements in fire restoration services is removing the smoke odors in the house. Airborne soot molecules exist in sizes smaller than the human eye can see in Advance properties but produce large odors that are readily recognized. 

SERVPRO technicians have different types of odor control applications to use in homes. In many cases, removing all fire odors in an Advance property may take a multi-layered approach. The methods of scent control depend on the surfaces and objects that need treating. SERVPRO techs have equipment for penetrating embedded particulate within porous things such as cushions or upholstered items and devices to neutralize airborne soot and render its odor-causing ability inert.

As the video draws to a close, a restored Advance home is shown as a couple walks through a living room that was gutted with fire damage is now fixed. Because SERVPRO technicians made the fire and smoke remediation process in Advance turn around the disaster into "Like it never even happened."
