The Fire Damage Assessment
One of the primary components of the fire damage restoration process is determining the extent of smoke damage. SERVPRO of Tracy will complete this step by doing a thorough assessment of your property. During this time, you'll also need to contact your insurance agent to ensure that they are aware of the fire damage.
In many cases, the insurance company will refer you to a professional fire damage restoration company that they work with regularly. In this case, the two companies will likely collaborate to draft a cost-effective settlement. SERVPRO works in a cooperative manner with many insurance companies. This may lessen your out-of-pocket expenses.
Cleaning Your Home
After performing a thorough fire damage assessment, the remediation company will move forward with the cleanup process. It is critically important that the cleanup project is initiated as soon as possible, starting with water removal. Otherwise, you will give mold and harmful bacteria an opportunity to start growing at your property. After powerful extractors remove the bulk of the water, dehumidifiers in your home will be used to remove excess moisture. Additionally, the remediation specialists will make use of cleaners, foggers, and deodorizers to eliminate the odor caused by soot and smoke.
