Our Specialists Explain Our Five Point Plan For Your Foster City Home After A Fire
The Five Point Fire Damage Plan For Foster City Residences
Unforeseen events at home can result in lengthy restoration procedures and testing to ensure it is safe for you to return. Often starting in the kitchen, a fire can be contained to one place, but smoke can spread outwards causing significant damages to furnishings or other areas. Using professional services with experience can help to mitigate losses and reduce the amount of time it takes to remediate your home.
When it comes to fire damage in foster city residences the majority of cases are minor or medium in scale. SERVPRO classify a medium scale fire as significant smoke residues which may require repainting, restoration, and replacement to ceilings, fittings, contents, walls or floors. Thankfully, in most medium losses, contents restoration can be done onsite without the necessity for expensive pack outs or relocations.
SERVPRO has technicians with IICRC certificates in fire damages and operates with a five-point plan to bring your property back to preloss conditions. We begin with mitigation which could involve performing temporary board ups or drying properties that are wet due to firefighting procedures. Temporary electrical generators can be provided if the property's primary source of electrics is shutoff.
Mitigation procedure is about preventing further damage and performing immediate, albeit temporary repair. SERVPRO follow it up with structural and contents cleaning. Repainting damaged walls and ceilings or removing items to a clean zone to allow both in-depth cleanings of the structure and restoration of personal possessions.
Some property owners may need specialty restoration. This restoration could include valuable items like artworks to be packed out and treated to advanced methods. Ultrasonic cleaning can be provided where necessary to help remove ingrained soot from valuable metals or woods, mechanical cleaning for clothing or refinishing furniture.
It is rare for medium scale fire damages to require reconstruction. However, where it is necessary, SERVPRO can leverage our trusted third-party contacts to perform architectural remodeling if areas of the structure are beyond repair. Odors left behind after a fire can be treated at the source or neutralized using industrial grade foggers.
A detailed plan of action is part of the journey to restoring your property to preloss conditions, contact SERVPRO of Belmont / San Carlos at (650) 591-4137 to begin.
