When fire strikes your Amherst home, you are left trying to cope with a disastrous situation. You need professional help you can trust to come alongside you and handle the cleanup and restoration. We can provide that help every step of the way.

Can you take care of the multi-level needs of a fire-damaged home?

A fire of any size can be cause for concern. The more extensive the fire, the more severe the devastation, both to the home and the family. A fire that has spread throughout the residence can leave homeowners in shock, not knowing what to do first. Immediate fire and water mitigation are required. At SERVPRO, we take you step by step through the entire process. We interact with your insurance company, provide move out services, and handled the complete fire damage restoration to your Amherst home. Here is a list of things we often deal with when a fire has occurred:

    •    Making it safe – a safe workplace is needed. May require boarding up the home to protect it.
    •    Water intrusion – water damage from burst pipes and efforts to put out the fire. Water extraction takes place as needed.
    •    Structural damage – floors, walls, woodwork, framing, and stairs become weakened by fire.
    •    Build back services – rebuilding areas that collapsed due to things like the weight of the water from firefighters
    •    Debris removal and disposal
    •    Decontamination
    •   Smoke damage and soot cleanup – using the correct chemicals for the type of soot involved.
    •    Deodorizing
    •    Move out services – the contents of the home may need to be removed to our warehouses for cleaning and restoration
    •    Restoration and cleaning of furniture, drapery, and personal items if possible.

Understanding the Levels of Fire Damage

Every fire is different, and the extent of the fire will determine what takes place. Smaller contained fires are going to require much less fire restoration services than a fire that spreads throughout the home. Understanding the three main types of fire can help you grasp what may get done in your home.

    •    Minor Fire Damage – Smoke residue is contained in a small area. Light to moderate soot damage. Dry and wet cleaning techniques can get used. Minimal replacement of items. Repainting may not even be required.
    •    Medium Fire Damage – Smoke residue is moderate. Repainting may be needed. A higher level of things may need replacing. Heat damage is present in drywall and cabinets. Deodorizing takes place as the smell of smoke is much stronger. More wet cleaning happens.
    •    Major Fire Damage– Severe damage is present Structural repairs are needed. Smoke residues spread through the home. Premises may need boarding up. Debris removal is necessary. Content move out is required.
