How Do You Tackle the Overwhelming Job of Fire Damage Remediation in Your Merritt Island Home?

There are so many obstacles that come into your path after dealing with fire damage. Let SERVPRO help you make life easier.

The Role of the Restorer in Mitigating Loss after Fire Damage in your Merritt Island Home


For most homeowners, the role of first responders and general contractors are clear cut during a restoration procedure. In between those two roles is the restorer, whose job it is to bridge the gap between firefighters and third-party remodelers. It is an essential part of the regeneration of your home which could save you unnecessary expenses and limit further damages after a fire.

A property with fire damage in Merritt Island is first treated to firefighting procedures. It is then the role of a restorer, like SERVPRO, to mitigate against losses and create a safe environment for third-parties or contractors to enter. As well as limiting potential damages that have been caused by fire and firefighting efforts, professional restoration technicians prepare the site so that crucial remediation can start.

One of the first jobs of a SERVPRO technician is to conduct a visual inspection. Any potential hazards like loose electrics or weak structure need to be cordoned off. Debris must be removed as well as securing the property by boarding up broken windows or cavities in the exterior structure. Bringing in generators is also vital to ensuring remodeling work can be completed in as little time as possible.

We can also conduct initial cleaning procedures in your home before remodeling. Sometimes, cleaning surfaces can prevent soots from setting and causing permanent damages. Equally, water residues used during firefighting procedures can quickly become hotbeds for mold or mildew growth. Remedying these areas can help to guard against permanent losses in the short-time between firefighting and full restoration.

Where areas of the home are deemed to be inhabitable for homeowners while restoration is completed, SERVPRO can thoroughly deodorize the area. Bringing in water-based thermal foggers is a solution to smoke and soot odors that do not damage your indoor air quality. Using our training, we can significantly reduce the likelihood of permanent damages and increase the chances of getting your home back to preloss conditions.

After a property emergency, contact SERVPRO of Central Brevard at (321) 638-4947 to guard against permanent losses.
