Anacortes, WA Fire Damage Cleanup and Restoration

While structure fires can be destructive while raging in Anacortes homes, the potential damage does not stop when extinguishment occurs. Many of the most hazardous conditions that exist because of a fire occur after the flames have been snuffed. This situation makes efforts like fire mitigation all the more pressing, as our experienced team of SERVPRO professionals can begin protecting your home and its contents from the post-fire hazards of soot, smoke, and ash. 

Fire Mitigation and Repairs for Anacortes 

Because the city serves as a hub for many other nearby islands like Lopez, Shaw, and Orcas, protecting accommodations is as critical as restoring family homes after a fire. Mitigation for fire losses involves several actions that vary based on the severity of the damage and the impacted materials. Because we also have licensed general contractors available, we can offer other essential emergency services to protect the property, such as:

  • Temporary construction
  • Board-up
  • Controlled demolition
  • Fire debris removal

Fire and Smoke Odor Removal in Anacortes Properties 

Removing harsh odors in the house after a fire can be a substantial obstacle. Because these effects can travel through pathways like the HVAC system, many areas of a home can become affected even without being directly damaged by the fire. Several deodorization practices can help with this process, though most often involves applying thermal foggers and hydroxyl generators when occupants do not need to get relocated.

The service page has more information about fire restoration, mitigation, and odor removal.

Our Fire Restoration Process

Every fire damage event is a little different and requires a unique solution, but the general process stays the same. The steps listed below illustrate our process for the “typical” fire damage emergency.

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.

Step 2: Inspection and Fire Damage Assessment

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)

If needed, we can begin the water removal process with powerful pumps and extraction units. This removes most of the water. We complete the water removal and drying process with industrial-strength dehumidifiers and air movers. 

Step 5: Removal of Smoke and Soot from All Surfaces

Your property’s ceiling, walls, floors, and other surfaces will likely have smoke and soot residue. We’ll use specialized cleaning products, equipment, and techniques to properly clean your home or business. 

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.

Step 7: Restoration

Restoration is the final step—getting your home or business to its pre-fire condition. Restoration may involve minor repairs, such as replacing drywall, painting, and installing new carpet; or it may entail major repairs such as the reconstruction of various areas or rooms in a home or business.
