Taking the First Steps after a Fire
For Fire Damage Restoration Inside Your Woodland Park Home Call SERVPRO.
Depending on the severity of the blaze that burned inside your Woodland Park house, you and your family may be able to stay living in your home during the restoration process. For example, if the blaze was small and the building is still safe to be occupied, then you can live in sections that did not get affected.
What safety steps do you take when we can stay in or house during restoration?
During some fire damage restoration projects in Woodland Park, your insurance adjuster may ask that a professional company like SERVPRO conduct emergency cleaning procedures to make part of your home livable. In some cases where strong odors exist from protein-based residues, we can perform deodorization procedures. We can also clean areas of your home needed, such as your bathrooms or kitchen, as well as any clothing you need. We can establish a containment chamber to keep contaminants from the affected portions of your house getting into your living area.
What precautions can you take when I cannot stay in my home?
When the damage proves to be excessive, you may have to move out of your house because it is not safe to be occupied. When this occurs, we can do several things to secure your home, such as boarding it up and making sure the power and heat work. We can also prevent structural issues by doing things like reinforcing your floor joists.
How can you board up and secure my home?
Cover Over- One method we can use is to cover over the opening by attaching a piece of plywood to the surfaces surrounding the opening.
Insert. We can insert plywood inside the opening, which provides more security than covering over.
Bolt with Tension- The most secure way to board up an opening is to bolt the wood by nailing 2 x 4's around the piece of plywood.
If you ever notice that your structural components got burned during a fire, call SERVPRO of Clifton at (973) 928-3705 24/7.
