As the “Paramedics of Property Damage®,” we get a lot of calls about damage to both residential and commercial properties, whether it’s fire damage, water damage, mold, or anything in between. But what exactly happens when we arrive on-site? How do our technicians go about beginning the restoration process?
Restoring a Home in Frisco, TX
Recently, our team headed to a residential property that had suffered a fire. It was a rental, so the owner hired PuroClean to assess the damage and restore the home.
Upon arriving at the scene, our technicians get to work surveying the extent of what areas of the home were affected by fire damage, which includes both interior and exterior damage. We take photos of the damage for documentation purposes.
Once we’ve inspected the entire property and taken note of all the damage, we begin the restoration process by boarding up any exposed areas and securing parts of the property that might be deemed dangerous due to the fire damage. Doing so can prevent accidents and discourage people and animals from entering.
Next, our skilled team gets started with demolition. This includes removing all affected structural materials. Sometimes, we find that materials we initially thought wouldn’t need replacing do need to be thrown out. In this Frisco home, for example, we discovered that the tile under the carpet, while previously deemed salvageable, sustained so much heat damage that it was beyond repair.
After removing all the debris from the property, our technicians start the rebuilding process. Because it depends on the extent of the fire damage, this step can take anywhere from a few weeks to a few months. In the case of the Frisco home, although the restoration is still ongoing, it’s looking better every day!
