Supervising Fire Damage Restoration at Your West Hartford Premises
SERVPRO Unburdens Your West Hartford Fire Repairs
Recovering from fire damage is a delicate process that requires the proper balancing of several factors, including time, people, and costs. It would be best if you had good supervision to get everything right and facilitate restoring your West Hartford establishment to its preloss state.
Of the three highlighted factors, managing people during fire damage restoration of your West Hartford premises is perhaps the least of your concerns since you would expect them to exercise their free will and common sense to take appropriate actions. However, in the aftermath of property disasters, employees and customers might not know what to do. Besides handling restoration, SERVPRO offers essential supervision to ensure the process runs smoothly, saving time and money.
Essential supervision actions
- Providing information and context
- Ensuring safety adherence
- Completing necessary documentation
Most of the damages caused by fires are apparent to everyone. However, some aspects of the damage, such as the hazards they pose or the work needed to resolve them, are not always apparent. SERVPRO crew chiefs explain the expected restoration timelines and the actions necessary to facilitate restoration. For instance, pre-cleaning surfaces and applying protective substances are essential in the immediate aftermath of the incident to prevent secondary damage like soot stains and corrosion. Later on, some structural areas may need to be demolished.
Dealing with people
The people visiting your business during fire restoration need direction so they do not hamper the recovery efforts or expose themselves to the hazards such an environment poses. Safety for everyone is a priority, so our SERVPRO technicians set up warning signs around the loss site. We can seal off some sections by boarding them up or setting up containment barriers.
Keeping proper records is essential before and during fire repairs. Records help track progress and costs. They also make the process of filing insurance claims much more straightforward..
