How Quickly Does SERVPRO Respond to Talleyville Homes and Businesses After a Fire?

Fires can be one of the most destructive forces that Talleyville properties face throughout their lifetimes, making it a situation best left to fire restoration companies like our SERVPRO team for the recovery and repair. As a standard callout for our professionals, fire mitigation must start as soon as possible for your home and many of the larger commercial properties and institutions in the area like St. Edmond's Academy and Brandywine High School.

Emergency Services Limit the Damage to Talleyville Structures

From Forwood Manor and Sunrise of Wilmington facilities to thousands of homes in communities like Talleys Corner, Welshire, and Holly Oak, our central location ensures that we can reach these damaged structures quickly after a fire loss. Experienced restoration professionals and our general contractors can limit the destruction to buildings through temporary construction solutions, debris removal, content relocation, and necessary repairs. Effective emergency services can spare the time restoration ultimately takes, ideal for medical facilities like the Nemours/Alfred I. DuPont Hospital for Children.

What Processes Make Up Fire Mitigation?

Initial cleaning and mitigation can vary based on the affected building and the severity of the situation. Venues on a timeline, such as Blue Ball Barn, Brantwyn, and The Waterfall, benefit significantly from our efficient mitigation solutions. This process can include cleaning surfaces and contents, air quality control, and controlled demolition. Our contractors can replace discarded materials in the final stages of restoration.

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

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.

Step 2: Inspection and Fire Damage Assessment

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)

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)

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. 

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.
