Our Fire Damage Experts Will Clean, Replace or Restore Your New Britain Home
Cleaning, Replacing or Restoring New Britain Fire Damage
How our restoration professionals choose to treat each of the structural elements and construction materials in your New Britain home after a fire is vital to ultimately saving both time and money. These choices for each of the affected surfaces are not made lightly, as choosing incorrectly means a higher cost to our customers or a longer restoration time projects take. After a fire loss incident, some structural elements can get cleaned, refinished, or replaced entirely.
The choice between these options traditionally occurs during the initial inspection and planning phases happening before mitigation of fire damage in New Britain homes begins. Working in conjunction with insurance providers for our customers, we can catalog losses and maintain a record of all affected surfaces as well as pre-existing conditions. This information is valuable when determining the best possible approach for making these losses “Like it never even happened.” Our SERVPRO management can choose among three potential choices depending on the severity of present residues, charring, and blistering.
As much as our team focuses on restoration work that we can do, it is also essential to concede when controlled demolition and build back are the most cost-effective solutions for the customer. Overly damaged structural elements, construction materials, and contents can often benefit from replacement instead of costly restorative practices.
Resurfacing is an option for a select few items that could become damaged during a fire. Wood furniture, for example, can show surface damages that do not allude to more severe deterioration. When found quickly enough, refinishing is an option to restore these items.
Cleaning is the ideal approach for most lightly and moderately damaged possessions and construction materials throughout a fire-damaged property. Our SERVPRO team has potent cleaning products and practices for removing soot and smoke residues as well as eliminating malodors. We lean towards restoration over replacement whenever possible.
Understanding what to expect during the mitigation and restoration phases of fire recovery in your home can help our customers to have peace of mind about the work that needs to occur. You can trust in the experience of our SERVPRO of Middletown / New Britain team to help you through nearly any hurdle after a fire loss incident. Give us a call anytime at (860) 826-5169.
