Restoring your Dallas Home after Minor Fire Damage

A housefire usually burns two distinctive types of material. Natural materials like woods as well as synthetic ones like plastic. Both materials release smoke and can leave soot behind throughout the home, even when the fire itself is contained in a single room. Firefighting procedures often incorporate shutting off electricity and using water to control flames. The presence of excess moisture can set soots or residues into porous surfaces making them difficult to clean.

A homeowner with fire damage in Dallas should seek professional help to return their property and possessions to preloss conditions. During a fire, toxic gases like monoxide are released forcing inhabitants to evacuate the property. These usually dissipate within an hour of putting the flames out posing no threat to your health. However, the thick odors and soot deposits can be an irritant, particularly if you suffer from respiratory problems like asthma.

Local SERVPRO technicians can be with you within four hours of notification of loss. They immediately set to work restoring power to the property and conducting a visual inspection of the site. Using their training, technicians can pre-test fabrics to see which types of material have burnt in the fire- either synthetic or natural. Doing so helps to establish an effective plan of action that can save time.

Charring occurs when dense materials are exposed to naked flames. The removal and safe disposal of these items is an immediate task for your technician to do. In high-temperature fires, structural components can show signs of charring. Using sandblasting techniques, SERVPRO can remove these elements leaving behind smooth surfaces ready for repainting.

At the end of service, SERVPRO conducts a walkthrough as standard. This procedure is to communicate outcomes with you, as well as the work completed onsite. Any non-salvageable items can be added to an inventory for passing on to your insurance adjuster. We can also contact third-party general contractors on your behalf to conduct remodeling or repainting work.

Getting your property back to preloss conditions is what we do, contact SERVPRO of Southwest Dallas at (214) 463-5880 today.
