Identifying the Focus of Fire Damage Restoration 

Fires are among the most destructive and overwhelming disasters a home can face, especially if the blaze spreads through multiple rooms or floors of the property. Restoration services must first focus on the most pressing concerns to protect the property and its contents from unnecessary harm. We begin cleanup tasks with a thorough inspection that can document hazards like:

  • Soot
  • Smoke
  • Structural Damage
  • Water Damage
  • Odors

What Does an Inspection Achieve? 

By dispatching skilled professionals like our production management to get Little Rock fire damage restoration inspections started, we can learn much about the state of the property and the needed mitigation. Objectives of the assessment include answering questions like:

  • Where is controlled demolition required?
  • Are there safety concerns?
  • What are restoration priorities?
  • What can be salvaged?

Washable Surfaces and Salvageability 

While part of the fire damage assessment determines the condition of specific contents and building materials, it is also necessary to document if these elements are salvageable. Washability is a low-scale part of this evaluation, as only superficial damage can often be cleaned on these designated washable surfaces. With more extreme damage, the likelihood of recovery drops respectively.

Getting Emergency Services and Mitigation Started

Armed with the information collected through the inspection process and the condition of the impacted materials in the house, we can start mitigation services. Keeping a quick pace with these efforts ensures that the data gathered by the damage assessment is still relevant and conditions do not worsen while restoration gets underway.

There is a benefit to getting post-fire damage inspections started as soon as possible. The more technicians can learn about the condition of the house and needed restoration actions, the more efficient these cleanup processes can become. Give our SERVPRO of Little Rock team a call whenever disaster strikes to help at (501) 803-9700.
