Our SERVPRO Technicians Create a Plan to Tackle Your Particular Home's Fire Damage Situation


Whenever a fire ignites in Pembroke Pines, various types of damage can occur to your property. The heat and smoke created by the blaze can ruin building materials and contents. A major part of restoration is the cleaning of items covered in soot instead of replacing them. Most projects involve a combination of replacing burnt structural components and removing soils that adhered to surfaces.
 
Before any work begins, our SERVPRO technicians inspect your house to determine the extent of the damage. The first part of mitigating any fire damage problem in Pembroke Pines is to complete a scope of the overall project. The initial project scope outlines all of the work needed to completely restore your home to preloss conditions.
 
The purpose of scoping is to list the work that must be performed in restoring the damage to the property. The actual itemization of the loss is always detailed and accurate. Our SERVPRO restoration team always uses a consistent system when scoping. A consistent scoping process helps ensure accuracy, avoiding missing items on the estimate, and allows the estimator to review the estimate easily.
 
When we are completing the initial scope of the job, our SERVPRO experts always follow some basic guidelines. First, we find out what the source of the fire was. Next, we start our inspection at the source and then work outwards. Then, we start taking inventory of the structure and keep a record of how severely structural components got damaged. After that, we take inventory of all of the affected contents of the building.
 
Since heat rises, smoke usually affects the ceiling and tops of the walls first. Therefore, we start inspecting the ceiling first; then we move downward towards the floor. Next, we move inside a room from left to right so that the order remains consistent.
 
We keep our records on a scope sheet, and we use a different scope sheet for each affected room. The scope sheet includes both structural items and contents that are inside each room. Whenever you need help with extensive smoke or fire problems, call SERVPRO of Ft. Lauderdale South at (954) 776-2000 seven days a week.
