The Risks of DIY Fire Restoration for Your Uptown Phoenix Home

One of the characteristics that define homeowners in this modern age is their drive to take care of issues and damages to their Phoenix residences on their own. The savvy homeowner can overcome minor situations that occur in their house, often by just searching online for advice. A fire in your house is not something that the average person can contend with on their own. The effects from a fire require experienced restoration technicians to restore to preloss conditions.

While this is not intended to discourage those looking to take care of the problems that their Uptown Phoenix home experiences, fire damages are often hazardous and challenging to restore by even the most experienced of technicians. Our SERVPRO professionals undergo extensive training in fire restoration to ensure that we approach conditions with a safety-oriented attitude and have the best techniques to overcome and restore the damages that your home has sustained from the blaze.

One of the things that you should know about a fire loss to help you appreciate the risk involved with DIY methods is the environment that you are walking into once the first responders leave the scene. The atmosphere inside of the house is full of debris, smoke, noxious odors, and possibly even chemical or toxic gases unsafe to inhale. Our SERVPRO technicians utilize the appropriate personal protective equipment to keep the team safe while we assess the damage and begin work to remove these harmful effects. After significant house fires, we await the okay from the fire marshall before attempting to enter the structure.

Another consideration that you should make is the stability of the structure itself. Some materials can become irreparably damaged, creating a persistent hazard for collapse or structural failure at any time. Our technicians get prepared for this possibility and can assess these risks safely while we formulate our plan for restoration in your house.

It is impossible for a homeowner to prepare themselves for a fire in the house, but you can remind yourself that the widespread effects should get left to trained professionals. Our SERVPRO of Phoenix emergency response team can arrive quickly and get to work on returning your home to preloss conditions as efficiently as possible, "Like it never even happened." Give us a call 24/7 at (480) 503-2090.
