After a House Fire, Cleanup is the First Step

Fire Damage Restoration for a Jacksonville House

As most homeowners know, fires are one of the most devastating natural disasters that a residential property owner in Jacksonville can face. Following the fire, it is critical that you consult with a professional fire restoration company. To learn more about fire damage restoration and what you should expect during the process, review the following outline: 

What Exactly Does A Fire Damage Restoration Company Do?

After emergency professionals complete their extinguishing of the house fire and possibly rescue efforts, they will determine if your residential property is safe for reentry. Your first call should be to your insurance company. Your next one should be a call to action to a fire damage restoration team like SERVPRO. These professionals will assist you by cleaning up any damage caused by the fire. They will also ensure that damages from the fire do not spread throughout your property. In addition to removing fire damaged items caused by the fire, these restoration specialists will work to eliminate smoke damage, soot, and water damage. They will eventually also inspect your property to identify and eliminate any mold or mildew damage. 

The Clean Up Process

When SERVPRO arrives at your home, they will complete an assessment to determine the extent of the fire damage. They will inspect the property inside and out. The structural integrity of the house is of paramount concern along with other potentially existing fire hazards. Once these restoration experts have completed the property damage assessment, they can design and implement a plan of action. 

In the event that you have damaged roofs, doors, walls, or windows, the recovery team will secure the area. This action requires that they may board up windows, strengthen walls, or cover holes in the roof with tarps. Once these technicians have secured the premises, the restoration experts will start the clean-up process. In some cases, your property may require water extraction equipment like pumps or vacuums to initiate the drying out treatment. Additionally, company professionals will use equipment like dehumidifiers and air movers to limit damage to your carpet and upholstery. The recovery team will also remove soot and smoke from your property. 


If your residential property has been damaged by fire, it's important to retain restoration services from a professional company you can trust. The company to call is SERVPRO.
