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 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.

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

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