One of the most devastating events a family or business can face is a fire. The shear destructive power of fire is often overwhelming.When fire causes damage in your life, ServiceMaster Restoration by PWF can help you restore both your property and your peace of mind.
Call ServiceMaster by PWF right away to get the process started. We will help you with a structural assessment to make sure that the building is safe to live or work in. Once that is determined, we can help you inventory and remove items so that reconstruction can begin without delay. If needed, they can also assist with immediate temporary needs like boarding windows or providing tarps for roofs.
After ensuring the structural integrity of the building, ServiceMaster by PWF will begin working on cleaning up the fire and smoke damage. Soot and ash can travel throughout all areas of a building, not just those directly affected by the fire. Smoke travels up through all the floors of the building, as well as the attic and crawl spaces. Duct work and ventilation systems also need to be checked and cleaned as needed. We will also clean and sanitize your floors and carpets to ensure that there is not lasting visual or smells in the carpets.
Along with the fire damage, water and smoke often accompany fire destruction. The water and chemicals used to put out the fire can require special disposal as well. If water was used to put out the fire, you have the additional issue of having to remove dirty standing water, which can develop mold and mildew. The mold can cause both structural and health issues. Once the standing water has been removed, dehumidifying and drying of all the spaces is a must. If chemicals were used to put out the fire, those can often be harmful if breathed in, so their disposal requires special training and the proper gear to complete.
Another issue with fire is that there can often be pipes or tanks that burst from the heat. When this occurs and mixes with the fire, soot and ash, the cleanup requires attention to both the damaged pipes or equipment and water damage.
Lastly, fire can often damage electrical wiring and equipment. As licensed contractors, ServiceMaster by PWF are equipped to test and replace wiring as needed. The last thing you want is to have damaged wiring cause another fire while you are cleaning up from the first one. Make sure you have a professional test the wiring in your building before you attempt to use any outlets after a flood or fire. Safety should always be the first priority.
In both cases, property owners should call ServiceMaster Restoration by PWF and have our trained technicians and special equipment do the work for you. Let us restore your property quickly and safely.
