How to Handle Rebuilds During Fire Damage Restoration in Newington Homes
SERVPRO Breaks Down the Process Ensuring Consistent Attention to All Aspects of the Restoration
Fire damage restoration can range from cleaning to rebuilding damaged areas of your Newington home. Every variation in the type of damage necessitates a different restoration approach. Involving a professional team eliminates guesswork, ensuring you get the desired results.
If a rebuild is necessary for any section of your Newington home during fire damage restoration, proper planning is as essential as having the right tools or qualified technicians. SERVPRO helps plan the process in addition to providing highly trained and well-equipped fire restoration technicians.
A properly planned restoration process should factor in:
- Protection of vulnerable areas or contents
- Controlled demolition
- Thorough cleanup
- Proper finishing
Although putting out a fire may reassure you, especially when it is done in good time, further damage might still occur in your property after that. Damages that happen while you prepare or during the rebuild of affected areas can crush your spirit. One way to avoid that is by prioritizing structure protection before starting the rebuilding processes.
Structure protection can be achieved easily by:
- Setting up containment barriers inside the house
- Installing roof tarps
- Boarding up windows, doors, and wall openings
The damage left by the fire determines how extensively you have to rebuild your home. For instance, the removal of charred wall panels, ceiling tiles, and insulation is necessary. However, if the removal of such unsalvageable materials is not handled carefully, additional destruction can occur, widening the scope of the rebuild. When our SERVPRO fire restoration technicians carry out controlled demolition, unnecessary damage is avoided.
Rebuilding and refinishing the areas damaged by fire solves the main problem and creates others, such as soiling and odor issues. Our SERVPRO teams use different approaches, including dry, wet, and blast cleaning, to remove soils and odors.
