SERVPRO Can Help Evaluate the Loss at Your Premises to Determine the Fastest Restoration Approach

After a fire ravages your business premises, you are likely to focus on cleanup and restoration to reopen as fast as possible. If all goes according to plan, your business can resume within the desired time. Sometimes, the opposite happens, delaying your plans.

Can my actions delay recovery after a fire incident?

Although immediate action after a fire damage incident in Toms River is essential, your actions can end up lengthening the recovery process, especially if you do not understand the loss clearly. From the experiences our SERVPRO crews have resolving such incidents, a typical restoration exercise involves:

  • Cleaning fire residues and other soils
  • Drying wetness introduced during cleaning or firefighting
  • Demolition and rebuilding of damaged sections
  • Odor management

Overlooking any steps or mixing them up can delay the outcome you desire. For instance, cleaning before demolishing walls or ceilings to remove damaged materials would be a waste of resources since you would end up repeating cleaning.

How do I tell the right restoration approach?

Each fire damage incident is unique depending on:

  • How long the fire burns
  • The type of materials you have at the premises
  • The method used to quell the fire

One way to restore the damage with confidence is by first doing a thorough scope to establish the specific details of the loss. Our SERVPRO technicians help with such scoping to reveal factors such as whether residues deposits on surfaces are predominantly wet or dry smoke, the extent of charring or materials, or the level of water intrusion into materials. We also determine whether there is a need for content move-out. The information gained from the evaluation helps identify any issues that may delay restoration.
