SERVPRO Has the Equipment and Manpower to Address Fire Loss, and Water Removal Needs in Your Twin Falls Home

After having a fire in your Twin Falls home, you get stuck with a lot of debris, along with a copious amount of water from emergency responders extinguishing it. Rather than trying to take on the restoration yourself as a DIY project, it is better to call in the help of skilled technicians who can get the job done in a fraction of time. Even if you have some do-it-yourself skills, nothing compares to the training and level of expertise that the professional restoration team brings to the job.

What Makes Your Team Qualified for the Job?

We utilize the latest techniques and remain up to date on all available training to ensure we provide our customers with the quality service they need in a time of crisis. We remove damaged materials, address staining and odors, and negate potential harm from mold and mildew growth by ensuring all moisture is located and dried. After mitigation is wrapped up, we set reconstruction plans in motion to restore your interior to like-new condition.

How Can I Be Sure Water Removal Was a Success?

Whenever your Twin Falls property has significant water on site after a fire loss, SERVPRO responds immediately by:

  •   Commencing with water extraction efforts immediately before moisture seeps into floorboards and behind walls. 
  •   Using specialized drying equipment like air movers, industrial fans, dehumidifiers, and drying mats
  •   Employing the use of moisture meters and sensors to locate any areas where water may have migrated.
  •   Removing saturated carpeting and the padding beneath for replacement.
  •   Cutting strategic holes in the walls to allow for full cavity drying.

How Long Can I Wait Before Addressing the Fire Damage in My Home?

The longer that you wait to execute fire loss cleanup, the more damage there is. Harsh residue from soot and smoke permeates through porous materials and sticks to non-porous surfaces. Almost immediately, grout and wooden surfaces begin to darken, and materials like fiberglass or your appliances can start to discolor.

The more time passes, you also have damage in the form of:

  •   Permanent staining of fabrics and upholstery
  •   Corrosion and tarnishing of metals
  •   Discoloration of paint on your walls and ceilings
  •   Deterioration of wooden furniture and flooring
  •   Crumbling vinyl
  •   Drywall and other materials throughout the house begin to discolor

We Feature IICRC-Certified Technicians

Our teams follow standards put forth by the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC), which ensures you have skilled professionals on your side. A fire loss is severe, but when mixed with water damage, it creates a unique situation best addressed by experts in the field of restoration. Safety is paramount, and our team arrives on-site wearing the appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE). We also take measures to ensure soot, moisture, and debris are not transferred from affected areas of the home into other rooms by wearing foot covers and tarping off workspaces.

Will I Still Smell Smoke After Fire Loss Restoration?

We know that air quality is imperative, so we pay attention to any areas where smoke may have traveled. We inspect your home’s HVAC system to determine if soot particles may have infiltrated and then take the time to determine whether your insulation must be replaced. In some cases, we can remove the first few inches of the insulation and replace it. In more severe cases of smoke infiltration, we may suggest removing all of the insulation for a full replacement. 

Following the full cleanup and drying, the final step is ensuring that your interior is cleaned and disinfected. Our skilled technicians deodorize your property and the contents. We use a range of specialized cleaning and sanitization methods by way of:

  •   EPA-registered cleaners and deodorizers
  •   Hydroxyl generators 
  •   Sealants
  •   Thermal Fogging, and more

When you are faced with fire loss, we are here to help with prompt restoration efforts and water removal. Call our team at SERVPRO of Twin Falls & Jerome Counties at (208) 735-1447, and we can send technicians out to begin the assessment phase.
