Manage Fire Restoration Handily in New Haven with SERVPRO

Fire damage is stressful when it affects your property since you have to deal with heavy soiling and damaged structural materials or utilities. Resolving such a situation in your New Haven property requires a systemic approach that controls the existing problems and prevents new issues from cropping up.

Fire damage restoration for New Haven homes can mean different things depending on the source of the fire, how long it burnt, and the materials involved. A professional intervention by SERVPRO addresses all issues comprehensively and conveniently.

Routine actions during a fire response:

  • Addressing the safety of your home
  • Securing the property
  • Dealing with fire residues
  • Addressing moisture accumulation

Your home can turn from a refuge to a hazardous trap in the aftermath of a fire. Problems like frayed electrical cables, shattered glass, and the jagged edges of charred materials can cause injuries to anyone venturing in - whether to explore or fix the damage. SERVPRO crews take action to improve safety, including stripping off electrical cables and supporting vulnerable structural sections, thus permitting other processes to run smoothly.

Safeguarding the Fire-Damaged Structure  

As the fire ranges, your home is at risk since some sections, such as ceilings or roofs, can collapse when the flames consume support systems. Even after the fire is controlled, the structure is still vulnerable, especially to intrusions through openings such as shattered windows or roof cave-ins. Making some effort to protect the building can prevent complications later on. Our technicians can install roof tarps or board up window openings for short-term structure protection before commencing other restoration processes.

Apart from the harmful aspects of fire damage, other issues such as soiling and moisture accumulation are another challenging dynamic of fire restoration. Planning how to handle these two aspects is essential since cleaning the premises to sanitary levels is critical for a complete renovation.
