Fire Damage Restoration Process

Comprehensive, Professional Services for Fire Damage Restoration and Repair

Fire can cause major damage to your property. SERVPRO of The Spokane Valley is the trusted professional resource for fire damage repair and restoration. Our experienced team uses exclusive technology and processes to produce fast and effective results.

Potential Damage Caused by Fires

Besides damage to your structures, smoke and soot produced by the fire can damage your entire property. Additionally, the water used to extinguish the fire requires professional cleaning to prevent further problems, such as mold growth.

We use advanced equipment and techniques to remove and remediate all traces of fire and water damage. 

Our Streamlined Process

We begin the fire damage restoration process as soon we arrive on the scene. First, your damage will be thoroughly inspected. If your home requires a roof tarp or boarding up, this will be carried out before performing water removal and drying. We then remove soot and smoke from the entire building, then clean and repair all damaged structures, followed by restoration to pre-fire condition.

We are a locally owned business with extensive national resources. That means no job is too big.  Because we are local, we are committed to doing the right thing for our community. That means no job is too small.

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 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. 

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.
