Steps To The Fire Damage Restoration Process

A fire in your home or place of business is going to leave quite a bit of damage behind. Not only do you need fire damage restoration but also water damage mitigation. Here is what the fire restoration process is likely to entail when SERVPRO of Olmos Park San Antonio arrives.


The first thing technicians are likely to do is survey the damage. They inspect the whole property to find anything that needs restoration:

  • Walls and insulation
  • Ceilings
  • Flooring
  • Furniture
  • Contents
  • Cabinets / Countertops and more...                                               

Once they have an itemized list of everything that needs to be done, the cleanup can begin. Our SERVPRO® staff is able to help with the insurance process in getting the claim filed and approvals that may be required. 

Water Remediation

A lot of water goes into putting out a fire. Therefore, Fire damage restoration often starts with water remediation. Technicians also have to contend with the water the fire rescue team used to douse the flames. Restoring what the water destroys is part of the cleanup process.

Smoke and Soot Removal

Another aspect of fire restoration is smoke and soot. Technicians have techniques for removing soot from the cracks and crevices for a complete cleaning. Smoke will likely need to be removed from surfaces, and the air may need to be filtered to neutralize smoke particles in it.


After all damaged materials have been removed and all remaining surfaces cleaned, the final restoration begins. Walls that are torn out need to be rebuilt. Ceiling and floor tiles that are broken or damaged must be replaced. If the fire only affected one area, it must be made to match the surrounding area so that your home or business looks the same as it did before the fire.
There are several steps to the fire damage restoration process. Knowing what to expect before it begins can help you stay on track.
