Crucial Stages in the Restoration of Fire Damage Incidents in Jacksonville

Because of the far-reaching implications, a fire loss incident might have, proper planning is necessary for successful damage restoration. Various stages are involved, and properly executing each stage is what helps guarantee a positive outcome. The four crucial steps of fire damage restoration when you hire a professional such as SERVPRO include:

  • Project initiation
  • Project Plan
  • Project Execution
  • Project Close-out

The initiation phase involves learning as much as possible about that specific fire damage incident in Jacksonville. The dynamics differ depending on the types of materials in the building and the intensity of the fire.  Other factors include how long the fire burns and other issues. You can provide some of this information to our SERVPRO customer service representative when you call for help. We also send technicians to perform a walk-through establishing the extent of damages. The information gathered helps determine the number of technicians and equipment type needed at the loss site.

The planning stage is also crucial to the success of fire damage restoration. The first step in planning is establishing the scope of work. For example, it is at this stage that we determine whether there is a need for a move-out, demolition, or even specialized cleaning processes. Another vital step is the scheduling of the different activities involved in the restoration. Proper schedules eliminate repetition or other redundancies. At the project planning stage, you have the chance to validate the information given by the restoration crew and also get an estimate of the total cost involved.

The project execution stage is when the actual work starts. However, before cleaning, moving, and rebuilding can begin, there is a need for site setup. Our SERVPRO technicians establish a staging area for the equipment, mark or isolate hazard areas, and perform other preparatory steps. We then embark on the restoration processes depending on the schedule we set earlier. Once all operations are over, we close out the project, which includes removing equipment and returning contents.

Planning is crucial for the smooth restoration of fire damage. Call SERVPRO of Jacksonville South at (904) 762-8066 to help you execute the restoration. We’re Faster To Any Size Disaster.
