Brandywine, DE Fire Damage Cleanup and Restoration

Job Scoping and Insurance Documentation After Brandywine Structure Fires

After a disaster like a fire, many Brandywine homeowners and property owners look to their insurance providers to cover the bulk of the cost to restore the property. To accomplish this, evaluations and damage documentation must get conducted by our SERVPRO project manager. When you consider high-traffic areas that must temporarily be closed for cleaning by fire restoration companies, such as the Widener University of Delaware Law School or the Siegel JCC community center building, a prompt response is critical.

Fire Mitigation Steps to Help Damaged Brandywine Homes

Understanding the individual needs of a structure is not as straightforward as it seems, as the type of fire, produced residues, and location of the damage all change factors in how to most efficiently clean. Challenges in mitigation tasks like surface cleaning soot or removing circulating smoke particles can be even more challenging in the HVAC system of larger accommodations in the area like the DoubleTree, Courtyard, or Days Inn Hotels off of Route 92.

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)

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.
