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

The fire restoration process begins when you call us. Our consultant will guide you through the crisis and may ask several questions to help us better understand the type of fire damage you experienced, determining the equipment and resources needed.

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)

In many fire damage cases, it’s necessary to board up missing windows and walls and to place tarps on a damaged roof. This helps to maintain security and to protect against further damage. 

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

The water removal process begins almost immediately and removes the majority of the water. We then use dehumidifiers and air movers to remove the remaining water and complete the drying process. 

Step 5: Removal of Smoke and Soot from All Surfaces

Your property’s ceiling, walls, floors, and other surfaces will likely have smoke and soot residue. We’ll use specialized cleaning products, equipment, and techniques to properly clean your home or business. 

Step 6: Cleaning and Sanitizing

We clean and sanitize the restorable items and structures damaged by the fire. Our professionals use a variety of cleaning techniques to restore your belongings to pre-fire condition. We’re also trained to remove odors using industrial air scrubbers and fogging equipment.

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.
