Fully Resolving Kent Fire Damage Concerns
Full-Service Fire Damage Restoration After Losses
Residents understand that several layers of restoration and recovery are required to return the home to its original condition after a fire. You need a full-service team of professionals, and our SERVPRO team is here to help. We start with powerful mitigation solutions like:
- Temporary construction
- Content removal
- Air filtration
- Water removal
- Debris cleanup
We must act fast with the severity of Kent fire damage incidents for homes, especially exposures to microscopic soot particles and structural damages. Our roster of FSRT-Certified technicians is ready to mobilize fast when disasters strike. Given our unique relationship with insurance providers in the area, we often have a team assembled and ready to roll out before the extinguishment of the fire completes.
Fire Damage Mitigation Services
Even after a fire gets extinguished, the damage to the structure does not stop. Circulating carcinogenic particles continue to spread, standing water absorbs into materials, and weak structural elements are ready to collapse. Our SERVPRO professionals use the mitigation process to reduce restoration times and further damage to the structure.
Insurance Claims Work
Most fire damage incidents fit the criteria for insurance claims, making much of the work to be done overseen and filtered through the specific processes and procedures companies require. We work directly with many of the areas insurance companies, understanding what the adjusters need to ensure your claim is approved and work can begin:
- Claims Inventory – Cataloging the condition of loose items and determining the salvageability of individual personal belongings. This would also indicate the need for relocation to our SERVPRO facility for further restoration work.
- Estimation – Combining the needed efforts and materials into a direct and detailed breakdown of expected costs and paid hours.
- Restoration Plan – The combined mitigation and restoration solutions necessary to return a property to preloss condition. This information tracks milestones and goals reached during the recovery process.
The Threat of Soot Damage
The incomplete combustion of fuels and organic matter can create smoke residues and soot that come to rest on surfaces. Under pressure, these can even become affixed to vertical planes like walls. Soot is a challenging obstacle for restoration professionals as the removal often requires several practices and products to achieve. Much of the decisions regarding the type of cleanup required relates to the kind of smoke damage present:
- Wet Smoke
- Dry Smoke
- Grease Residues
Counteractants and Deodorants
Malodors are often final considerations for the restoration process but no less an obstacle for recovery professionals working in the house. Harsh smells are often created by the combustion of woods, plastics, and chemicals. While counteractant products like beads and granules can reduce the severity of these threats, deodorization equipment and tools are often necessary to complete the job. We generally utilize products and mechanical means to eliminate malodors.
Fire Damage Repairs for Homes
Few fire disasters do not require some form of repair or reconstruction. Our SERVPRO IICRC-Certified team is equipped to manage these needs with a general contractor license and years of experience in the building trades to provide these efforts. From controlled demolition where damaged building materials must be removed and discarded to the reconstruction of wall and ceiling assemblies to make it “Like it never even happened,” we can help.
Kent fire damage might occur from many sources or ignition points, but the threat to your home or property should be anticipated. Post-disaster conditions are often volatile and overwhelming between soot and smoke damage threats spreading through the structure. Our SERVPRO of Kent team can help get life back to normal with effective cleanup and restoration services. Call us today at (253) 850-1500.
