Why Are Professional Restorers More Cost-Efficient After Agoura Fire Losses?

9/7/2020 (Permalink)

We’re Faster to Any Size Disaster

Our professionals have a fast and local response to emergencies, so there is no delay in the work that your Agoura property needs after a disaster.

Choosing to place your Agoura home in the care of professional restoration technicians and contractors might not always be a simple decision. With fire losses, especially, the damage to the property can be overwhelming and might lead less experienced homeowners to the belief that the house is a total loss. With our local restoration professionals' fast response, we can begin assessing the damage and taking the necessary steps to recover property loss.

Fire damage in Agoura homes might seem insurmountable once you have been cleared to enter the property after extinguishment. Between debris, rubbish, partial combustion, residues, and odors, fire restoration companies like our SERVPRO team must begin work immediately to prevent the situation from worsening through the continued spread of these loss effects. Determining what the home needs are the first step in this process.

What Must Happen to Restore My Damaged Agoura Home?
No two-loss incidents are identical, which means that assessment and evaluation must occur to determine the extent of damages and what can get done to remedy them. Pre-job scoping by our trained project manager is a process vital for multiple reasons. For one, this identifies areas and items in need of attention by the responding fire restorers. Additionally, documentation and photographic evidence can be collected to submit to your insurance company seeking to approve a damage claim to fund the majority of the restoration the property requires. Job scoping focuses on cataloging three main areas:

    •    Current Damages - Between residues and structural damages created by the spreading fire in the house, recording existing losses that our technicians must overcome can help develop an efficient restoration plan.
    •    Content Assessment - Personal belongings in the path of migrating fire loss effects can become destroyed. Deciding which items need to be relocated and restored can protect these belongings.
    •    Pre-Existing Conditions - By walking through the damaged areas with a homeowner, you can divulge pre-existing damages or conditions that do not need to be included in the house's recovery.

Is SERVPRO Faster to Any Size Disaster?
A prompt response to emergencies is not something that happens without careful planning and considerations. There are many steps vital to getting our certified technicians mobilized towards a fire-damaged structure.

    •    24/7 Availability - Our technicians understand that disasters can strike at any time. Because you cannot afford to wait for regular operating hours during an emergency, we are always ready to mobilize.
    •    Staffed Emergency Lines - Real people on the phones answering your emergency calls to our facility means that the right questions get asked, and the right information gets collected to provide a complete restoration response.
    •    Pre-Stocked Production Trailers and Vehicles - Fire restoration requires many products, equipment, and technologies. By keeping trailers and vehicles stocked with these items, the Green Fleet can roll out more efficiently from our warehouse.
    •    Experienced Fire & Smoke Restoration Technicians (FSRT) – The knowledge and experience of professionals can also make a difference in the efficiency of response and action once our team arrives. We waste no time getting started with the mitigation your property requires.

What Do You Need to Clean Up After a Fire Loss?
Cleaning is a vital element to every restoration project that our SERVPRO team undertakes, so fire damage recovery to a property is no different. Because there are so many layers to successful fire restoration for your home, cleaning and repairs are broken into larger sections taking place in both the mitigation and later phases of returning a property to preloss condition:

    •    Surface Cleaning - Soot and smoke residues are a considerable challenge that requires abrasive cleaning, dissolving, emulsifying, and oxidizing to correct.
    •    Content Cleaning - Your personal belongings and valuables in the house can fall victim to soot and odors. Relocation, on-site cleaning, and pack-out to our nearby SERVPRO facility can be viable solutions to protect these items.
    •    Deodorization - Removing odors is a common obstacle after structural losses and fires. Smoke and burning scents can become embedded in porous materials like gypsum and carpeting, requiring efficient deodorization techniques like thermal fogging.
    •    Repairs/Reconstruction - Repairs and reconstruction are both often inevitable with how destructive fires can become. Our experienced roster of general contractors can help with emergency services and full-scale build back as necessary.

Considering how quickly fire losses can impact homes and businesses, it is vital to get professional fire restoration companies like our SERVPRO of Agoura / Calabasas / Hidden Hills team on-site immediately. Give us a call anytime disasters strike at (818) 991-6292.
