Swift Fire Damage Restoration Services In Jerome

When your home suffers fire damage, it is critical for you to call for help as soon as you can. The longer that the remnants of a fire linger behind in your home, the more damage they can cause. There are several aspects of a house-fire to think about when it comes to the damage that may remain after the flames. The initial scorching left by the fire itself can be challenging to remediate on its own, but there is also ash and smoke damage to consider. Plastics and paint can become discolored as they are exposed to soot, and fabrics must be treated for smoke damage. The quicker remediation happens, the more likely it is that all of your belongings can be saved.

The fire damage inside of your Jerome home was caused by faulty electrical wiring in your living room. A power surge caused a small fire to take place, one which you quickly put out with a fire extinguisher. Fortunately, only your curtains, some of your wall, and the insulation inside of the wall burned up, keeping the area of impact relatively small. Getting a professional team of remediation technicians to your home as quickly as possible is your best option.

Here at SERVPRO, we do everything we can to uphold our reputation of being swift, friendly, and effective. When we get your call, SERVPRO can put a team together as fast as possible so our technicians can travel to your home swiftly. We always take the time to explain our solution to your problem and keep you involved, so you always know what is happening inside of your home. Furthermore, our technicians can use advanced technology to address the damages inside of your living room.

Our SERVPRO techs can clean up any ash and debris that has been left behind, such as the remnants of your drapes, and then make drywall cuts to remove the damaged section and burnt insulation. We can use a gentle cleaning solution on the scorch marks on your wall first, and then gradually build up the intensity until we're able to clean the surface. Finally, our technicians can employ a thermal fogger, which dispenses a fog-like vapor made from deodorizer, to neutralize the foul scent left behind.

If fire damage strikes your house, quickly get help. Speak with SERVPRO of Twin Falls & Jerome Counties by calling (208) 735-1447. Day or night, we're open, and our technicians are ready to remediate your home.

Why it is Important to Quickly Remediate Water Damage in Twin Falls

2/21/2019 (Permalink)

Why SERVPRO Why it is Important to Quickly Remediate Water Damage in Twin Falls When flooding causes water to 'fall' inside your home, call SERVPRO to remove the water quickly.

Why SERVPRO Teams Arrive so Fast to Cleanup Flood Damage in Twin Falls

Disasters happening in Twin Falls can leave a lasting impression on our community. Floods can change the landscape, including the path taken by water flowing through our area. These changes can make a previously flood-free area prone to problems later.  

Why SERVPRO responds so quickly to homeowners in Twin Falls whose houses are at risk of flood damage is to help minimize the destruction experienced and to finish mitigation as quickly as possible. Getting your home restored so your family can return home, “Like it never even happened” is very important to us. We know that living away from home continues the stress from the flooding event, and only when everything is normal does this stop.  

Damaged areas inside a home after a flood continue to worsen steadily, with moisture spreading to previously dry areas which is why we cut above the water line after a flood when removing walls. Not only does this increase air flow through rooms but it also lets us dry out the framework, a crucial aspect in protecting your house.  

Within floodwaters, many pathogens mingle and then get laid all over your house's surfaces. These and other microbes can survive as long as moisture levels remain high. Extracting the water and then reducing the house's moisture content to within normal ranges helps eliminate many microbes. Doing this is easier to carry out early before mold has a chance to grow. Adding a microbial infestation to the situation not only increases the amount of work and time involved, but it also increases the cost of flood damage restoration.  

Our teams know the most effective techniques for restoring a home after flood damage occurs. Flooding does not always make your home permanently uninhabitable. We can make things safe again, both with the structure's integrity and the surfaces your family members come into contact with regularly.  

Helping residents in our community after a tragedy that affects every aspect of their lives keeps our community healthy and stable. Call SERVPRO of Twin Falls & Jerome Counties at (208) 735-1447 to protect your house in Buhl, Filer, or Clover from the devastation of flood damage.

”Great, Professional Company. We were very happy with their work and service from start to finish. Would highly recommend, if you have a remediation project.” –Spencer, ID

“We suffered extensive water damage to ceilings, fixtures, walls, and floors as a result of an overflowing shower upstairs.

   Luke and his team showed up promptly and worked quickly to get the situation in hand. Over four weeks of drying, removing damaged drywall, and installing and painting new drywall, they have always been highly professional and extremely personable.

   Luke was always immediately available to answer any question, and always specifically described beforehand, what needed to be done, and what the cost would be.

   We were especially impressed with how they contained the construction dust and debris from migrating into the rest of the place. We are very pleased with the quality of their work, would highly recommend them to anyone with the misfortune to need professional mitigation services, and will be glad to be a personal reference.” Joseph, ID
