Apartment Fire Damage

8/21/2018 (Permalink)

SERVPRO of East Louisville was recently called out to a fire at an apartment community. The leasing office had experienced heavy fire and smoke damage throughout the entire building. These are some of the steps SERVPRO of East Louisville is taking during the cleanup process.

One of the first steps is securing the building. We start by boarding up all of the windows and doors as needed. Next we implement emergency services: cut out any and all drywall affected, remove carpet and pad, extract water, and then start the drying out process. In some cases we are asked to remove and clean all contents.  Crews will work on packing out contents one room at a time. Once all contents have been inventoried and packed properly SERVPRO of East Louisville will bring them back to our warehouse. Once back at the warehouse they will be cleaned, deodorized, and properly stored.

The next step is to start cleaning the structure that was affected by the fire and smoke. When the area has been cleaned thoroughly, we set ozone machines to eliminate any odors as some may linger even after the extensive cleaning and removing of all damaged areas. A SERVPRO Project Manager will oversee that all of the scope sheets of work have been filled out and turned in daily. When the above steps have been completed a supervisor from SERVPRO will do a walk through with the crew to make sure every aspect of the job has been completed.  The last step is to do a final walk thru with the business owner, and sometimes the adjuster, to make sure all the work is up to their standards and expectations.

Call SERVPRO of East Louisville the next time a disaster affects you or your business.
