Berlin, CT Fire Damage Cleanup and Restoration

The First Steps to Secure Fire Restoration for Your Berlin Home

While our SERVPRO team seeks to stay ahead of changing situations in Berlin, including the development of active fires we might be called upon to assist, this can be challenging with a city of more than 20,000 residents. As a preferred vendor for insurance providers, we are a reputable choice to contact for both emergency services and the complete fire restoration needs of your property after a disaster. We stay prepared to mobilize quickly when you contact our staffed emergency line.

What Are Emergency Services Before Fire Mitigation?

Emergency services precede mitigation and even much of the job scoping to assess the damage to a Berlin property. When you consider many of the cultural centers and entertainment venues like the Connecticut Cabaret Theatre in the city, many of these buildings can benefit from preemptive recovery efforts such as temporary construction, repairs, debris removal, and content management.

How Can SERVPRO Help Aging Structures?

With a city that has been around since 1785, we have many historic and aging structures that can suffer fires the same as residences. Smoke residues and soot can stain and mar surfaces if the situation is not addressed quickly by competent professionals who know how to remove these residues and soilings. Protecting the underlying material is critical in these situations, so we pre-test cleaning strategies and utilize efficient approaches like soda blasting to protect underlying substrates while effectively removing surface soil.

Our Fire Restoration Process

Every fire damage event is a little different and requires a unique solution, but the general process stays the same. The steps listed below illustrate our process for the “typical” fire damage emergency.

Step 1: Emergency Contact

The fire restoration process begins when you call us. Our consultant will guide you through the crisis and may ask several questions to help us better understand the type of fire damage you experienced, determining the equipment and resources needed.

Step 2: Inspection and Fire Damage Assessment

We carefully inspect and test adjoining rooms of your property to determine the extent of the fire, smoke, and soot damage. This step is crucial to developing a plan of action.

Step 3: Immediate Board-Up and Roof-Tarp Service (if needed)

Fire damage can often compromise windows, walls, and roofs. To maintain security and to protect against further damage, we can board up missing windows and walls and place tarps on damaged roofs. 

Step 4: Water Removal and Drying (if water damage is present)

The water removal process begins almost immediately and removes the majority of the water. We then use dehumidifiers and air movers to remove the remaining water and complete the drying process. 

Step 5: Removal of Smoke and Soot from All Surfaces

We use specialized equipment and techniques to remove smoke and soot from ceilings, walls, and other surfaces. 

Step 6: Cleaning and Sanitizing

Any restorable items will be cleaned and sanitized. We’ll use a variety of specialized cleaning techniques to restore your belongings to pre-fire condition. Our professionals will also remove smoke and other odors using advanced air scrubbing equipment and fogging devices with deodorizers.

Step 7: Restoration

Restoration is the final step—getting your home or business to its pre-fire condition. Restoration may involve minor repairs, such as replacing drywall, painting, and installing new carpet; or it may entail major repairs such as the reconstruction of various areas or rooms in a home or business.
