Washington, GA Fire Damage Cleanup and Restoration

A fire in your Washington home can be overwhelming, so much so that you might not know what to do first. Often, homeowners choose to contact their insurance provider to begin the tedious process of damage claim approvals. Our SERVPRO team can appreciate how challenging this phase is for property owners, and that is why we often suggest reaching out to allow us to complete the job scoping and damage assessment phase to provide your insurance company with the documentation and photographic evidence they require to approve a damage claim on your home. 

Emergency Services for Washington Homes 

As general contractors and Fire & Smoke Restoration Technicians (FSRT), our team can offer a comprehensive approach to both mitigation and restoration. When actions like controlled demolition are necessary, we do not have to leave this to subcontractors to complete on a different schedule. We can begin emergency services as soon as we arrive, allowing us to address immediate issues like structural openings or air quality concerns. Some of the standard fire damage emergency services are: 

  • Content inventory and relocation 
  • Air quality filtration
  • Controlled demolition
  • Roof tarping and board-up
  • Debris removal

Our Fire Restoration Process

Every fire damage event is a little different and requires a unique solution, but the general process stays the same. The steps listed below illustrate our process for the “typical” fire damage emergency.

Step 1: Emergency Contact

We are available 24 hours, 7 days a week. When you call, one of our representatives will ask a series of questions about the fire damage to your home or business. This information helps us respond immediately with all the needed equipment and resources.

Step 2: Inspection and Fire Damage Assessment

We carefully inspect and test adjoining rooms of your property to determine the extent of the fire, smoke, and soot damage. This step is crucial to developing a plan of action.

Step 3: Immediate Board-Up and Roof-Tarp Service (if needed)

Fire damage can often compromise windows, walls, and roofs. To maintain security and to protect against further damage, we can board up missing windows and walls and place tarps on damaged roofs. 

Step 4: Water Removal and Drying (if water damage is present)

If needed, we can begin the water removal process with powerful pumps and extraction units. This removes most of the water. We complete the water removal and drying process with industrial-strength dehumidifiers and air movers. 

Step 5: Removal of Smoke and Soot from All Surfaces

We use specialized equipment and techniques to remove smoke and soot from ceilings, walls, and other surfaces. 

Step 6: Cleaning and Sanitizing

Any restorable items will be cleaned and sanitized. We’ll use a variety of specialized cleaning techniques to restore your belongings to pre-fire condition. Our professionals will also remove smoke and other odors using advanced air scrubbing equipment and fogging devices with deodorizers.

Step 7: Restoration

Restoration is the final step—getting your home or business to its pre-fire condition. Restoration may involve minor repairs, such as replacing drywall, painting, and installing new carpet; or it may entail major repairs such as the reconstruction of various areas or rooms in a home or business.
