SERVPRO Improves Fire Restoration Outcomes by Providing Technical Skills and Sophisticated Equipment

Even though fires are not an everyday event in homes, there is always a risk of one starting at your Mississauga home. Like most people, responding to a fire incident is not something you have at the top of your head, so you may not know what to do or what you can salvage once the flames die down.

The decisions you make when addressing fire damage at your Mississauga home depend on the resources you have and the extent of damages left. Professional help from SERVPRO is advantageous since we have state-of-the-art equipment that simplifies restoration or improves the chances of salvaging more items.

The main factors that determine the response include:

  • Various costs
  • Materials involved
  • Availability of skills and equipment

Different categories of costs are crucial when addressing fire damage. The cost of replacing the affected items is one such category. If the materials can be replaced cheaply, there is no need to waste time and money attempting restoration, especially if a positive outcome is not guaranteed. Soiled insulation is a perfect example to illustrate this since it is better to replace the top layers rather than spend time cleaning. Another cost-related issue is the time it might take to complete the restoration, especially if such effort might delay other restoration processes.

Sometimes materials dictate the fire restoration action you can take. Some materials may be delicate, and leaving them unaddressed can worsen the damage. For example, metallic trim such as hinges, door handles, and knobs might survive the fire but leaving them covered with soot increases chances of irreversible damage through corrosion. Our SERVPRO technicians pre-clean such vulnerable materials and apply a thin oil film before focusing on other aspects. Other materials might be too delicate to survive cleaning procedures. For instance, cleaning acoustic tile ceilings can permanently damage them due to over-wetting. Our technicians use specialized procedures such as peroxide active cleaning.
