Reducing Inconveniences After Fire Damage Incidents in Tucson

A fire incident in Tucson can have different outcomes, including forcing occupants to vacate the premises for cleanup, repairs, and other restoration steps. These movements create inconveniences and introduce additional costs to the original loss. A professional fire damage restorer like SERVPRO can help reduce the costs and nuisances.

Boarding up the premises
After the blaze that leads to fire damage loss in Tucson is put out, many homeowners believe the worst is over. However, deterioration is likely to continue and especially when the property is unoccupied. Some actions such as, heat from the flames that shatters windows or holes punched through the walls by firefighters to access the seat of the fire, leave openings around the property. Through these openings, weather elements can damage the interior of the house. Our SERVPRO technicians can prevent such problems by immediately boarding-up the property after the loss. We prefer more secure options such as bolt with tension board up instead of just covering openings with plywood under extreme weather or damage.

Restoring power
Unless it is a catastrophic fire incident, there is a need to run utilities such as heating in the house. Unfortunately, since fire is likely to damage cable insulations leaving bare wires, restoring power takes more than just flicking a switch. Our SERVPRO technicians can inspect wires for physical damage. We also use circuit checkers to verify normal current flow before reconnecting appliances. Safety always comes first.

Protecting surfaces
Apart from severe damages, minor issues can develop in the aftermath of a fire incident. Residues such as soot can stain some surfaces deeply, causing permanent damage. Stone surfaces such as granite countertops and metal finishes like chrome are susceptible to this type of damage. Our SERVPRO technicians prevent on-going damage by pre-cleaning surfaces and applying a thin film of lubricant. Such steps also help reduce the work needed to restore the property, thus improving the turnaround time.

A fire loss can cause many inconveniences. Call SERVPRO of Northeast Tucson at (520) 760-9352 to help take steps that deal with the damage, "Like it never even happened."
