Yakima, WA Fire Damage Cleanup and Restoration

When fire damage impacts Yakima County, we have professionals to help with the thousands of homes that might be affected, and Large Loss technicians for massive structures like Marquette Stadium and Yakima Valley College. 

Mitigating Fire Losses for Yakima Homes

The mitigation process following fire damage varies based on the property's condition. Not every emergency requires extensive emergency services before restoration work can begin, while others might need debris removal and HEPA air filtration to manage contaminants and a volatile environment. 

Pre-Job Scoping for Estimations 

Our SERVPRO professionals must provide insurance providers a complete estimation and restoration plan to get the green light to begin cleanup and recovery. Our pre-job inspection conducted by the crew chief or production manager documents the full measure of affected surfaces and contents. Often, our process can help expedite damage claim approval. This process focuses on several areas needed in the estimation, such as:

  • Damaged structure
  • Fire and smoke damage
  • Location of soot deposits
  • Ruined contents
  • Water removal needs

Eliminating Surface Soot in Yakima Properties

Soot is an unwelcome sight for homeowners, as these corrosive soils can destroy underlying substrates after a short exposure period. We understand the urgency of cleanup, and pre-test with strong solvents and detergents to find the ideal cleaning solution to limit needed reconstruction and repairs. Dry smoke damage can benefit from HEPA vacuuming before surface cleaning begins.
