Call center needs restoration and cleaning

large room with cubicles Call centers never close. SERVPRO of Lawton worked in shifts to accommodate the businesses requirements.

Call centers never close. So when water damage struck this call center after a remodel, they called SERVPRO of Lawton.

Our team of highly trained technicians responded immediately and began extracting water from the wet areas.

They also documented the post construction cleaning that was needed, and we created two separate jobs to document each item thoroughly.

The "wet" team documented the size of the area they were extracting so they would know the exact number of air movers and dehumidifiers they would need.

The "cleaning" team set up containment between the two areas and also documented the size of the area and the level of cleaning required.

Both teams worked in shifts to accommodate the call center and their customers.

When this job was complete, the staff and employees were grateful they had a new, clean work area, and thanked us for working with them during this loss.

Yesterday's blog discussed three of the seven steps SERVPRO of Lawton takes to restore your home or business after it has suffered fire damage.

Today, we'll address the final four steps:

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

We clean, sanitize, and disinfect all of the restorable items and structures that were damaged by the fire. We use a variety of cleaning techniques to restore your belongings to pre-fire condition. We’re also trained to remove odors using industrial air scrubbers and fogging equipment.

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.

Fireplace fire causes extensive damage

fire damaged wall, chairs Fireplace fires are common in cold weather.

It's not just fire damage. It's smoke, soot, and even water from firefighting efforts.

And it means there's a lot of work to be done in order to restore your property.

At SERVPRO of Lawton, we break down the fire restoration process into 7 basic steps:

Step 1: Emergency Contact

The restoration process begins when you call us. Our representative will ask questions regarding the fire damage event that will help us respond immediately with the appropriate equipment and resources. 

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

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.

Fire, smoke, soot and water damage

10/14/2019 (Permalink)

burned walls and ceiling Damage this bad typically requires SERVPRO emergency tarping and boarding services.

Unlike a water damage claim, fire damage claims and the restoration process will take a lot of time, and a lot of patience.

Because these claims typically involve fire, smoke, soot and water, the initial inspection and recommended course of action will be quite intense.

When you call  SERVPRO of Lawton, our team of professionals will thoroughly inspect every room and every surface of your property to document smoke and soot damage, water damage from fire fighting efforts and damage from the fire itself.

We’ll document all damages digitally and provide the information to your agent and adjuster.

This will help with your loss claim and ensure you receive the restoration and compensation you’re entitled to under your policy.
