No More Exposed Wiring After Fire Damage. Here's What Fire Damage Restoration Really Looks Like In West End

6/22/2022 (Permalink)

The charred remains of your West End home or business can leave a scar on your mind and heart. It's unfathomable to think it can happen to you and even more devastating when it does. You would need an expert to guide you through the crisis if and when the unthinkable happens. At SERVPRO of Belle Meade and West Nashville, we are the fire damage experts, carefully weaving our way through disaster to help you recover contents from the rubble of ash and soot. As your Nashville neighbors, we're here to help YOU! By bringing our advanced tools and seasoned team to the scene, we make it "Like it never even happened!"

What Does The Fire Damage Restoration Process Look Like In West End? 

  • The first step starts when you call us! You will be asked a series of questions by our rep, so we know what your fire damage situation looks like. Not all fire scenarios are the same, so we want to know all the details to know what to bring on to the scene. 
  • When we arrive, we'll inspect the property before conducting the fire damage assessment to examine the scope of the damage. This step is integral to developing a course of action. 
  • We offer building services which include immediate board-up and roof-tarp services. Fire damage can compromise windows, roofs, and walls, so this step is critical to protect against further damage for security reasons. 
  • If water damage is present from firefighting efforts, we provide water damage restoration services during this step in the fire damage restoration process. We use air movers and dehumidifiers to extract excess water and commence the drying process. 
  • Step 5 involves us removing smoke and soot from all surfaces. Inhaling the scent that permeates from smoke and soot smells is unhealthy, so this step is vital to the fire damage restoration timeline!
  • Just because the dry, musty odors of smoke and soot are gone doesn't mean we can ignore sanitizing! We clean, sanitize, and disinfect all restorable contents damaged by the fire. We use air scrubbers and fogging equipment to remove odors effectively. 
  • The seventh and final step is restoration! Based on the damages, we can do minor repairs like replacing drywall or installing carpet or major repairs like full-scale restoration across your West End home or business. 

How Can You Avoid Fires Caused By Electrical Outlets, Leading To Exposed Wires?

Out of the estimated average of 346,800 home structure fires a year during 2015-2019, many of these fires were caused by electrical outlets

  • It's critical to spot the signs of electrical wiring issues that can start a fire. Some of these signs include unexplained burning smells, shocks or sparks from appliances or outlets and intermittent power cuts. 
  • It may seem like a no-brainer, but installing a high-quality smoke detector can save a lot of headaches down the road. It can be easy to procrastinate when you are disaster-free, but you never know when the unpredictable can happen, so investing in suitable smoke detectors and fire extinguishers can go a long way! 
  • Keep fixtures away from textiles like curtains or bedding! Additionally, you should never decorate a lamp with paper or cloth that could catch fire.
