How to manage Fire Damage In Your Home or Business In Fort Mill/Rock Hill Area
Having a fire that damages your home or business can be scary and definitely costly in repairs.
The most important part of repairing your fire damage is to find a restoration company that will help put your worries to rest and then get to work on fixing the damage as fast and effectively as possible. Every fire damage event is different and requires a unique solution but the general process stays the same.
The steps listed below illustrate our process for the “typical” fire damage emergency.
Please call SERVPRO of Rock Hill & York County if you have any questions about the process.
Step 1: Emergency Contact 803-324-5780. You can call us 24/7.
Step 2: Inspection, Testing, and Fire Damage Assessment
Our Professionals will carefully inspect and test adjoining rooms of your property to determine the extent of the fire, smoke, and soot damage. This step is crucial to developing a plan of action.
Step 3: Immediate Board-Up and Roof-Tarp Service
Fire damage can often compromise windows, walls, and roofs. To maintain security and to protect against further damage, our SERVPRO professionals can board up missing windows and walls and place tarps on damaged roofs.
Step 4: Water Removal and Drying (if water damage is present)
After the Fire Department Leaves, there is often Water Damage. The water removal process begins almost immediately and removes the majority of the water. We will then use equipment, such as dehumidifiers and air movers to remove the remaining water and complete the drying process.
Step 5: Removal of Smoke and Soot from All Surfaces
The SERVPRO professionals use specialized equipment and techniques to remove smoke and soot from ceilings, walls, and other surfaces.
Step 6: Cleaning and Sanitizing
We will clean all of the restorable items and structures that were damaged by the fire, using a variety of cleaning techniques to restore your belongings to pre-fire condition. We’re also trained to remove odors using industrial air scrubbers and fogging equipment.
Step 7: Restoration
Restoration is the final step—getting your home or business to its pre-loss condition. As General Contractors we can handle anything, making it “Like it never even happened.”
Restoration may involve minor repairs, such as replacing drywall, painting, and installing new carpet; or it may entail major repairs such as the reconstruction of large areas or rooms in a home or business.
