December 19th, 2016 · No Comments

A fire can result in significant damage to your property. The first thing you need to do after the firefighters have extinguished the blaze is call ServiceMaster Metropolitan to perform fire damage restoration. We proudly serve homes and businesses in Wayne, NJ and across Northern New Jersey. Acting quickly is essential to the successful restoration of your building and belongings because, as time passes, soot and smoke from the fire continues to damage everything it has touched. If left too long, the damage can become permanent.

In the following sections we will outline the fire damage restoration processes ServiceMaster Metropolitan follows, starting with the initial call and ending with the completed restoration.


Step #1: Calling ServiceMaster Metropolitan for Fire Damage Cleanup 

The first step in treating fire damage is calling an experienced fire damage restoration firm, such as ServiceMaster Metropolitan, and providing details of the fire. Some of the details you should provide include:

  • Where the fire occurred. Was it isolated to one room, or did it affect the entire building?
  • What objects were burned during the fire? The strategy for restoration will be dependent on whether synthetic, protein, or natural substances were burned during the fire.


Step #2: Initial Inspection 

After the fire has been extinguished and your building secured, our restoration team will visit the property, perform a thorough inspection, develop a restoration strategy, and establish a timeline for the work being done.


Step #3: Content Pack out 

Fire damage cleanup technicians will collect undamaged items and store them in a secure offsite location for the duration of the restoration. Any items that were damaged will be collected and properly restored or discarded if deemed unsalvageable.


Step #4: Begin Restoration 

Our professionals will estimate the cost of restoration and provide detailed documentation of the damage and services needed. We can also work directly with your insurance provider. Once everything is approved, our technicians will begin the restoration tasks such as soot removal, air duct cleaning, and smoke damage remediation. While fire damage restoration is performed onsite, damaged items stored offsite will also be restored.


Step #5: Finish Restoration and Final Walkthrough 

After the fire damage restoration and cleanup has been completed, belongings that were restored offsite will be returned to the property. At that time, we will conduct a walkthrough with you and, if you wish, your insurance adjuster to ensure everything has been cleaned and restored to your complete satisfaction.
