Shreveport Residents need a Supportive Fire Damage Restoration Crew

Damage to your Shreveport home is devastating. SERVPRO of South Shreveport understands that a home disaster leaves you feeling shaken and wondering if your life will ever be normal again. That is why supporting you and helping with every aspect of remediation is a core part of our philosophy.

Even a small house blaze can cause a great deal of damage. A Shreveport fire damage restoration company can help you deal with the damage and restore your home “Like it never even happened.” It is hard to believe your house could ever feel like yours again, but we always aim to restore it to its preloss condition.

When you call a restoration company, you naturally expect them to clean up the mess from the fire. That is their job! But there are other benefits of working with a restoration company.

How can SERVPRO help you get your home back faster?
We understand how stressful it is when you have to go and stay somewhere else after a fire. Being unable to enter your home is upsetting.

Because our technicians are remediation experts, they know the most efficient ways to get the job done. Unfortunately, we cannot press a button and have your home back to normal, but working with us is much faster than cleaning up by yourself.

How does working with us keep you safe?
There are many potential hazards in the aftermath of a fire:
• Soot particles in the air
• Structural damage such as sagging ceilings or damaged plaster
• Holes in the roof and walls from firefighting
• Leftover firefighting chemicals
• Debris and jagged edges such as glass or metal shards or broken wooden beams

Our teams are safety-conscious, and we equip them with a full range of personal protective equipment. Do not put yourself at risk – let the professionals handle it.

How can SERVPRO help you with insurance?
Dealing with your insurance company can be stressful. Although the final decision on what will be covered is between you and them, SERVPRO can support you by:
• Securing your home by boarding up windows and putting a tarp on the roof – many insurers need evidence that your home is adequately secured
• Taking pictures and helping with inventory
• Giving a professional opinion on what we can salvage – insurers like it when we can repair rather than replace
• Talking to your insurance company on your behalf to provide information

How can we help with air quality?
Air quality is low after a fire. Unfortunately, securing your home makes it worse, as there are fewer places for air to escape. We use air scrubbers and negative air machines to trap harmful particles in the air and prevent them from re-entering your home.

How can SERVPRO help with cleaning?
Cleaning is a significant part of fire damage restoration. Of course, you expect a remediation company to clean up the walls and ceilings of your home, but we can also clean:
• Furniture and upholstery
• Personal belongings and keepsakes
• Textiles and clothes

We can complete many cleaning tasks on-site, but we can send items to our facility for specialist cleaning if necessary. We use a range of cleaning methods, including dry brushing, wet wiping, HEPA vacuuming, soda blasting, and spot cleaning. We can also call in professionals to clean and certify electronic devices.

We can also clean carpets, rugs, and upholstery with hot water extraction, specialist shampoos, or spot cleaning. We can run your blinds through our ultrasonic cleaner to rid them of sooty residue.

How can we help with smoke odors?
Our customers tell us that the smell of smoke is one of the worst parts of a fire. Your home cannot feel like yours again when there is a lingering smoke smell. Thankfully we know how to deal with those stinky odors. We might use air scrubbers, ozone generators, hydroxyl generators, dry fogging, odor-eating pellets, or any combination of these to rid your home of smells.

How can we help with home repairs?
Your home might look ravaged after a fire. Wallpaper might be soot-stained. Fire can damage insulation and supporting beams. Firefighters often have to cut holes in the roof or walls to control the fire and ensure it is completely extinguished.

Our technicians can help with structural repairs and with tasks such as re-hanging wallpaper or replacing carpet. If we cannot carry out a job, we will call in other professionals. We supervise all sub-contractors and ensure they work to our high standards.

The aftermath of a fire is very stressful. Let us take some of that stress off your shoulders and get your home liveable once more. For a fire restoration company that cares, call SERVPRO of South Shreveport at (318) 865-4655.
