Fire Damage Restoration Process
We Mitigate Fire Damage in Coral Springs Properties
SERVPRO's fire damage cleanup process is designed with you in mind: to return your Coral Springs home and its contents to a safe and comfortable preloss condition. We even have the tools and techniques available to restore water damage from firefighting efforts. Our all-in-one service not only streamlines the claims filing process but can also save you time and money.
Trained To Tackle Fire & Water Damage
Our restoration techs undergo extensive training in the scientific theory behind water and fire damages as well as how to combat these disasters in structures. This education is also based on the standards set by the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification, an accredited body that sets the benchmark that all disaster mitigation specialists must follow. This ensures that homeowners and business owners in Coral Springs who have been affected by disaster can receive a consistently high standard of cleanup every time.
Why Remove Water Before Fire Residues?
Our mitigation process addresses water damage first in a situation where firefighting efforts extinguished your property's fire, and for a good reason:
- Water can cause soot residues to become acidic and corrode surfaces
- Not addressing water damage first can lead to further structural damage and mold growth
- Water damage to contents can destroy otherwise salvageable furniture and possessions
- Soot deposits that may have been harder to clean in a wet structure may be more easily removed after drying the affected area

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
The restoration process begins when you call us. Our representative will ask questions regarding the fire damage event that will help us respond immediately with the appropriate equipment and resources.
Step 2: Inspection and Fire Damage Assessment
We carefully inspect and test adjoining rooms of your property to determine the extent of the fire, smoke, and soot damage. This step is crucial to developing a plan of action.
Step 3: Immediate Board-Up and Roof-Tarp Service
Fire damage can often compromise windows, walls, and roofs. To maintain security and to protect against further damage, we can board up missing windows and walls and place tarps on damaged roofs.
Step 4: Water Removal and Drying (if water damage is present)
The water removal process begins almost immediately and removes the majority of the water. We then use dehumidifiers and air movers to remove the remaining water and complete the drying process.
Step 5: Removal of Smoke and Soot from All Surfaces
We use specialized equipment and techniques to remove smoke and soot from ceilings, walls, and other surfaces.
Step 6: Cleaning and Sanitizing
We clean, sanitize, and disinfect all of the restorable items and structures that were damaged by the fire. We 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.
