Fire Damage in Bokeelia - Emergency Services
SERVPRO Offers a Comprehensive Fire Damage Service
When it comes to cleaning up and restoring a home or business, there are some services that fall under the category of emergency. These are necessary to prevent further damage, provide a safe work environment and prepare a structure for the restoration process.
In any fire damage to a Bokeelia home or business, there are some services that need to be accomplished immediately. When it comes to these emergency services SERVPRO has three objectives:
1) Prevent fire and smoke damage from causing further destruction to property.
2) Provide a safer work site for people who enter the structure.
3) Prepare the site for mitigation and restoration work to begin.
These services depend on the extent of damage to the structure. The following are those actions we will immediately take.
Conduct Inspections - Evaluate the structure for any health and safety hazards.
Board up the Building - We do this to prevent trespassing, vandalism, and (in some cases) looting.
Dry the Structure - If the fire suppression system was engaged or if the fire department was called in, there will be an excessive amount of water and moisture in the structure. We will set up pumps and other drying equipment to reduce these levels.
Establish Emergency Electricity - Set up a temporary power source using generators or generator trucks to provide light, heat, and electricity for personnel and equipment.
Deodorize the Affected Areas - On some work sites, the amount of smoke odor present may make the structure uninhabitable. We use a combination of thermal fogging and air scrubbers to make the areas breathable without assistance.
Initial Cleaning - If it's a personal home, some possessions (clothing usually) will need to be cleaned immediately for the occupants to use while living in a hotel or other temporary housing. We have Esporta washers designed for this, and our technicians will also perform pre-cleaning on carpets and furniture to prevent heavy soot and soil from causing further damage.
Pest Extermination - If there are any insects in the property, we will have trade partners who are licensed to perform an extermination before allowing out employees to move property. Besides the health issue, if infested property is boxed up and placed into storage, the infestation will continue to grow and render some property unrestorable.
