Fire damage mitigation is essential after a fire to reduce further damage to your Upper East Side, NYC home. Today, we’re going to look at the steps the professionals at ServiceMaster Metropolitan take to ensure successful fire damage mitigation!



Step #1: The First Call – Evaluate Severity of Damage

When we receive your call, we respond right away. First, we try to collect as much information as possible to determine the type of fire damage scenario we’re dealing with.

Normally, our experts ask a few questions during their initial call to get a better idea of the severity of the damage. These questions include:

  • What caused the fire and when did it occurred?
  • Is there extensive soot in your home?
  • Has the fire penetrated throughout your home?
  • Has anyone already attempted cleanup?

By getting answers to these questions we’re able to develop a plan of action for proper fire damage mitigation.



Step #2: House Visit and Pretest

The next step is visiting your home and inspecting the fire damage and conducting a pretest.

After the inspection we’ll provide the paperwork you’ll have to fill out. These documents include:


  • Client information form
  • Authorization form so we can perform fire damage mitigation work at your home
  • Fire damage information form. This form will outline when the fire damage remediation work begins, the procedure we’ll be following, and the cleaning agents we’ll utilize


The fire damage information form will also detail items including important documents, jewelry, firearms, and heirlooms. This way our team will have record of specialty items that require special care during the mitigation process.



Step #3: Scoping and Estimation


Next, our technicians will be scoping the property to clearly outline what services we’ll be providing as part of the mitigation process.


The scoping will be used to develop an estimate and workorder.


Once you sign all the necessary documents, the fire damage mitigation work can begin.



Step #4: Fire Damage Mitigation Work


Finally, our experts will start and finish the restoration within the set time frame.


Once the fire damage mitigation is completed we’ll conduct a final walk through and inspection with you to ensure the work has been performed as specified. You will then sign a certificate of satisfaction if work has been performed as required.


The experts at ServiceMaster Metropolitan have the required expertise and training to conduct all processes and procedures required for thorough fire damage mitigation on your home in the Upper East Side. Just give us a call at (855) 560-7999 for immediate assistance!
