Fire Damage SERVPRO Provides Expertise Fire Loss Recovery to Pittsboro Property Owners SERVPRO Advice: Pittsboro Cooks--Be Observant to Prevent Kitchen Mishaps and Fires

Recovering Your Pittsboro Kitchen After A Fire

Disasters that occur within your Pittsboro home’s kitchen offer some challenging hurdles to overcome for a homeowner. From the soot and smoke damage that can permeate the air, the construction elements, and the contents of the room to structural concerns from intense exposure, there are many effects from the incident that must get addressed to return a property to preloss condition.

Returning to your home once fire extinguishment has completed gives you the first look at the fire damage to your Pittsboro property and the lengths necessary to recover it. From this point, you might consider calling your insurance company. Moreover, then contact our SERVPRO response team. We have highly-trained technicians with the knowledge to assess the integrity of the structure, photograph the incident, catalog the damages and record losses. This documentation is a requirement of your insurance provider to approve a damage claim on the property, so this speeds that process along. You will rarely find that the cost to restore the incident is not worth filing a claim over. Our estimator or project manager can interface with you and your insurance adjuster to expedite the recovery and remain within a given budget.

Our SERVPRO professionals set out to take care of the structural concerns right away, which often have affected the cabinetry, flooring, ceiling, and walls of the room. We can use controlled demolition techniques to prepare the room for rebuilding to follow, removing only the damaged portions to limit the amount of time reconstruction takes.

Removing the smoke and soot damages often means contending with residue matted to surfaces and contents throughout the affected area. Premier cleaning solutions with advanced equipment and industrial-grade solvents help to break this buildup loose and prevent staining of surfaces otherwise unaffected by the fire.

Cleaning the atmosphere also helps to make the restoration process more efficient and safer for our technicians on-site. We can utilize equipment such as hydroxyl generators and air scrubbers to clean the environment of particulates, debris, smoke damage, mold spores, and other potential threats.

Fire damage is something that homeowners should not face on their own. With our SERVPRO of Lee & South Chatham Counties experienced fire restoration technicians, we can get you back into your house quickly. Give us a call anytime at (919) 533-6776.

Pittsboro Properties Can Benefit from SERVPRO's Rapid Water Removal Efforts

Water Damage Pittsboro Properties Can Benefit from SERVPRO's Rapid Water Removal Efforts SERVPRO Says to Pittsboro Homeowners--Make Sure You Have a Shut-Off Valve to Mitigate Water Damage

Lacking a Shut-Off Valve Can Cause Severe Water Damage in Pittsboro Homes

Older Pittsboro homes may not always have the modern conveniences in areas like plumbing and construction to help keep them protected in case something goes wrong. For example, many older homes got constructed without the installation of a shut off valve inside of the house to prevent flow from the main water line outside through the water meter and into the plumbing network. Should something occur that ruptures or damages any portion of this plumbing line, you then have to wait until workers can arrive to shut off the flow through the meter itself to prevent more water from spilling into your house.

While it might be simple to suggest that you should have a shut-off valve installed in your Pittsboro home to help prevent water loss, many homeowners do not realize this fact until disaster strikes. With no time to react to the situation, the best solution is to contact our SERVPRO rapid response team to get our Green Fleet rolling out to your address. We have the advanced equipment to help dry up the damage and to make minor repairs to the plumbing network as well, which can help to preserve construction elements within your home from requiring replacement.

The faster that our IICRC certified technicians can arrive at an emergency like this, the easier it becomes to mitigate the damage that has occurred within the structure. Regardless of the severity of the problem, waiting too long for water removal and restoration work can allow for secondary effects like mold growth to begin. This situation of intrusive water requires industry-leading equipment and techniques to reduce the damages. We strive always to restore and not replace whenever possible.

We have truck-mounted pumps in our SERVPRO Green Fleet to rapidly extract water from affected areas of your home. We can combine the efforts of our air movers that force moisture into the air and our dehumidifiers which pull that vapor out of the environment, for fast drying efforts to protect your home.

Our SERVPRO of Lee & South Chatham Counties rapid response team is available 24/7 for any emergency that your home faces. We have the advanced equipment and highly-trained technicians to make a difference quickly. Give us a call anytime at (919) 533-6776.
