Claymont, DE Fire Damage Cleanup and Restoration

How Destructive Can Fire Losses Be To Claymont Homes?

As unexpected and traumatic as fire losses can be when you experience them, restoring and recovering your Claymont home does not need to be overwhelming. We are a preferred vendor for local insurance providers throughout Delaware and the Greater Wilmington area, making our SERVPRO team a wise choice to begin damage assessment and documentation to secure claim approval. With historic properties in the Archmere Academy or the Robinson House, this inspection and ultimate restoration are meticulous and intricate.

What Actions Get Taken First to Restore a Fire-Damaged Claymont Property?

While you can depend on the Claymont Fire Co.'s fast response responding from Philadephia Pike, emergency services are still a vital element of recovery. With non-profits in the area like the Boys and Girls Clubs of Delaware, saving money is critical in getting your facility up and running again as soon as possible after an unexpected disaster. Between roof tarping and debris removal, we have multiple actions our professionals can take immediately to limit the severity of loss effects in the building.

What Repairs Are Needed After a Fire?

There are often several layers of reconstruction and repair necessary after a fire. Some needs are glaring, such as discarded drywall or holes in the structure. Public buildings like the Wilmington Montessori School or the Claymont Public Library need this reconstruction urgently. Money and progress with students get lost with prolonged periods away from the building.

We determine the scope of the fire and smoke damage by examining the affected areas and by testing the adjoining rooms for smoke and soot damage. An accurate assessment is crucial to the planning process. 

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.
