Remediating Fire Damage in Boulder
Team SERVPRO Remediates Fire Damage Regardless of the Severity Level
Every Boulder home is at risk from a fire. Accidents occur each day, and despite the best efforts of homeowners and insurance companies, the worst still happens.
Boulder home fire damage is not the end of the world though. Few homes ever suffer complete destruction, and SERVPRO restoration teams are ready to clean and remediate the damage to area homes regardless if it is considered Minor, Medium, or Major.
With Minor fire damage, there is little physical damage from heat or flames. The smoke residues left on the property after the fire are only light to moderate. Restoration efforts by our specialists are primarily dry or wet wiping down of walls, floors, ceilings, and personal property inside the home. Perhaps one or two walls and the ceiling might require new paint and only small items like books and magazines need replacing.
If a home suffered Medium fire damage, the smoke residue damage is moderate, requiring more wet wiping and cleaning by SERVPRO specialists. Wood floors near the point of origin of the fire may need refinishing and the number of rooms that require repainting increases along with the increase in smoke residues.
At this level, there is more heat and flame damage to a structural property like cabinets, ceiling tiles, and drywall panels. The personal and structural property requires intensive cleaning now, but specialists can still accomplish it at home. Odors from smoke residues are strong enough to be noticed and may require further deodorizing efforts after specialists complete cleaning the structure.
When the fire damage is considered Major, property near the point of origin burns severely from heat and flames. Finishes on cabinets and floors need replacing, as does a significant portion of the Interior wall framing and the drywall that covers it. Specialists perform extensive cleaning throughout the entire home to remove smoke residues which not only affect every room but penetrated into the cooling and heating ducts as well. Odor removal is much more intensive and expensive as well.
There is often enough physical damage which the homeowner may require SERVPRO emergency services as well. Specialists may need to board up windows, doors, and even sections of the roof with plywood.
