SERVPRO Maximizes Pre-restoration Planning to Ease Fire Cleanup and Other Restoration Processes

Fire leaves Gilroy properties heavily soiled with different residues, from fine soot and ash to sticky or invisible wet smoke residues. Although cleaning is challenging in general, the effort put in planning influences the difficulty level. 

Planning for cleanup during fire damage restoration at your Gilroy property involves many aspects, which is why it is challenging. Since fires occur suddenly, they lead to confusion, impacting your plan-making routines. The planning process also requires you to anticipate issues ranging from scheduling to preventing adverse outcomes. The trained and experienced crews from SERVPRO have the appropriate skills and are not emotionally attached to the loss, which eases planning.

Planning involves many crucial aspects, including:

  • Establishing all necessary cleaning procedures
  • Setting the schedule for the exercise
  • Collecting cleaning resources 

Different procedures might be necessary depending on the type or level of fire damage. The cleaning goals also determine how the cleaning process is done. For instance, the resources needed to clean walls or ceilings depend on whether there is a plan to repaint the surface. When cleaning is the only procedure, thorough procedures are necessary.

The issue of scheduling might puzzle you since the earlier you start, the more beneficial the process. However, individual cleaning tasks may need to be prioritized or put off initially. In general, the process starts from the top areas of the property then progresses towards the ground. Our SERVPRO teams begin with the ceiling, walls, and contents we can clean onsite. We finish by cleaning the floors.

Planning the resources in time ensures no stoppage or delays. Resources vary depending on soiling and the materials in the property. Our SERVPRO crew chiefs also designate a staging area and work areas for maximum utilization of resources.

Some typical resources we use for fire cleanup include:

  • Chemical sponges
  • Air filtration devices
  • Blast cleaning equipment 
  • Trash cans

With the help of SERVPRO of Morgan Hill / Gilroy, fire damage restoration can progress as you expect, making it "Like it never even happened." You can reach us at (408) 500-0657.
