After the fire trucks leave, your home likely suffers from fire and smoke damage and extensive water damage from firefighting efforts. SERVPRO of Western Lehigh have the specialized fire restoration training needed to restore your home to pre-fire condition.

Every fire damage event is different, and requires a unique solution, but the general process stays the same. The steps listed below illustrate our process for the “typical” fire damage emergency.

Step 1: Emergency Contact: The restoration process begins when you call the SERVPRO Customer Care Center, which is staffed 24 hours a day. 

Step 2:Inspection and Fire Damage Assessment: Our Professionals will carefully inspect and test all rooms of your property to determine the extent of the smoke, soot, and fire damage

Step 3: Immediate Board-Up and Roof-Tarp Service:  To maintain security and to protect against further damage, we may board up missing windows and walls and place tarps on damaged roofs.

Step 4: Water Removal and Drying (if water damage is present): The water removal process begins almost immediately and removes the majority of the water.

Step 5: Removal of Smoke and Soot from All Surfaces: We will use specialized equipment and techniques to remove smoke and soot from all surfaces. 

Step 6: Cleaning and Sanitizing: Our professionals will clean all of the restorable items and structures that were damaged by the fire.

Step 7: Restoration: The final step—getting your home or business to its pre-fire condition.
