Controlled Demolition By SERVPRO Technicians in Shreveport Can Be the Quickest Way to a Full Restoration

Demolition is a scary word. However, it can often be part of the process we take to help homeowners get their properties back "Like it never even happened," after a house fire. Fires that affect multiple rooms in a property are usually considered to cause moderate damage. Moderate damage affects the outer layers of a building's assembly but may not reach the building's framework nor put the structure itself in jeopardy. While limited fire damages may feel like a disaster, the effects can often be fully-restored within a period of four to five weeks. It is vital to wait for the approval of a fire marshall before entering a burnt building, and we recommend arranging for an immediate inspection of damages from a qualified restoration professional. Our team help with:

  • Fire damage restoration
  • Fire demolition
  • Home restoration

One essential part of fire damage restoration for your Shreveport home is to remove any unsalvageable materials. Parts of a home, like drywall, can be permanently damaged if exposed to fire and can interfere, or slow down, the restoration process. SERVPRO technicians can strip an affected room using a combination of claw hammers and razor cutters. We then quickly removed the fire debris leaving just the framework exposed. From this point onwards, we can rebuild the room, adding layers of insulation, drywall, and paint to return the property to its preloss condition. 

  • Fumigation using ULV foggers is common in homes where drywall or other building assembly materials are removed for disposal. 
  • If affected areas are not essential, such as washrooms or kitchens, homeowners can often remain in the house during restoration.
  • Odor sealing primer paint can be applied to the framework of a home if there is evidence of persistent or chronic odors. 

We are experts at putting the pieces back together following a fire. Contact SERVPRO of South Shreveport for fire damage restoration at (318) 865-4655.
