Lower Your Fire Cleanup Costs After A Fire

3/22/2022 (Permalink)

A bedroom that recently suffered a fire loss, all furniture is burned and smoking SERVPRO of Bear/New Castle prioritizes restoring your structure and belongings over replacement after a loss, saving you both time and money.

A loss due to fire is terrible enough as it is without factoring in how much it can cost to restore the damage done to your home. As is the case with most types of loss, quick and immediate action through emergency mitigation services can save you money in the long run by minimizing further damage to both your structure and belongings.

Saving Fire Damaged Possessions

At first glance after the loss many of your personal belonging affected by the flames and smoke may look like they are beyond repair but in reality, they are often recoverable. Don’t give up too easily on saving your family heirlooms as a fire restoration company like SERVPRO of Bear/New Castle is trained to identify when items can be salvaged, and when they aren’t able be to be restored to preloss condition, we will reach out to you on whether you would like to still keep the heirloom/belonging regardless of condition. The most important thing you can do is call us quickly to service your belongings, because certain items in your home like drapes, furniture, carpet, walls, and ceilings can absorb smoke. If too much time elapses between the fire damage and fire cleanup, the effects of smoke damage can last for months or longer.

Time Can Cost You Many Possessions

By not securing a restoration company immediately after your fire loss, the amount of damage to property and structure as well as the cost to service them will increase. Less belongings will be salvageable which means they will need to be replaced which is more costly. Some of the items that decrease the chances of restoration with time include your clothing, leather, photographs, books, furniture, kitchen items, and many other things. However, we do not in any way handle firearms and ammunition

Restored To Pre-Loss Condition

As mentioned before, our goal is getting your damaged belongings to back to their preloss condition as it is usually more affordable to restore items than to replace them. That means you shouldn’t throw anything out until you know for sure that it will need to be replaced. Some of the additional services that are associated with fire loss include boarding up your property for security measures, inventorying all salvageable and unsalvageable items, packing and moving your belonging to our facility for cleaning and storage, and moving back your items when you are ready.
