Lauderdale, MN Fire Damage Cleanup and Restoration

Many steps and actions are required to restore and recover a fire damaged Lauderdale home after a disaster. As overwhelming as this might initially appear, acquiring talented and experienced professionals like our SERVPRO team can ensure that the appropriate actions get taken immediately to reduce total loss and protect more of your personal belongings and the affected property. Job scoping plays a considerable role in this effort. This allows our project manager to thoroughly inspect the property and determine what restorative actions are required and estimates on time and cost.

The First Mitigation Steps for Lauderdale Homes 

Mitigation is often one of the most vital phases of every restoration project that our team begins. Usually, this process starts with emergency services that proceed even typical mitigative actions. Emergency services are designed to incorporate both the competent technicians on our roster as well as our general contracting division capable of completing several temporary and permanent construction requirements to move the restoration process along. Emergency services can sometimes happen before job scoping as well, and often includes:

  • Roof tarping
  • Board-up
  • Content relocation
  • Fire debris removal
  • Controlled demolition
  • Air quality control

Step 1: Emergency Contact

We are available 24 hours, 7 days a week. When you call, one of our representatives will ask a series of questions about the fire damage to your home or business. This information helps us respond immediately with all the needed equipment and resources.

We determine the scope of the fire and smoke damage by examining the affected areas and by testing the adjoining rooms for smoke and soot damage. An accurate assessment is crucial to the planning process. 

Step 3: Immediate Board-Up and Roof-Tarp Service (if needed)

In many fire damage cases, it’s necessary to board up missing windows and walls and to place tarps on a damaged roof. This helps to maintain security and to protect against further damage. 

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. We then use dehumidifiers and air movers to remove the remaining water and complete the drying process. 

Step 5: Removal of Smoke and Soot from All Surfaces

We use specialized equipment and techniques to remove smoke and soot from ceilings, walls, and other surfaces. 

Step 6: Cleaning and Sanitizing

We clean and sanitize the restorable items and structures damaged by the fire. Our professionals use a variety of cleaning techniques to restore your belongings to pre-fire condition. We’re also trained to remove odors using industrial air scrubbers and fogging equipment.
