SERVPRO visits Brookfield Fire/EMS for HTC Fire Academy Training
We recently visited the Brookfield Fire & EMS department to take part in HTC Fire Academy's Salvage & Overhaul training Session.
Our marketing representative Meghan presented on After the Fire, what SERVPRO can do for our first responders as well as our customers in a fire or water damage emergency situation. Jim and Rodd talked about our contents processing center and how we can help restore textiles with our Esporta Wash System.
Our Fire Damage Restoration Process:
Step 1: Emergency Contact
The restoration process begins when you call us. Our highly-trained restoration technicians are dedicated to responding immediately to any fire or water damage emergency. We’re on-call 24/7 to respond to any size disaster.
Step 2: Initial Inspection
We carefully inspect the structure and identify type of smoke (wet, dry, protein, fuel oil soot, etc.) and develop a plan of action
Step 3: Immediate Board-Up and Roof-Tarp Service
Our dedicated board-up crew is on-call 24/7. To maintain security and protect against further damage, we can board up missing windows and walls and tarp roofs without causing unnecessary damage to the structure.
Step 4: Contents Evaluation
We have the capacity and resources to inventory, pack out, clean and store contents from any size loss.
Step 5: Water Removal and Drying
The water removal process begins almost immediately and removes the majority of the water. We then use commercial grade dehumidifiers and air movers to remove the remaining water and complete the drying process.
Step 6: Removal of Smoke and Soot from All Surfaces
Step 7: Odor Removal, Cleaning and Sanitizing
Step 8: Restoration
Reconstruction may involve minor or major repairs. We’re here to make damage “Like it never even happened.”
