Fire Restoration Safety

6/10/2019 (Permalink)

After a fire, our technicians want to get to work right away to help get your home to its pre-fire condition.  But safety for our technicians and anyone else that will be on site is our main concern.  Safety hazards are present at every fire damage work site.  We need to take safety concerns seriously and need to address them properly before starting.  Every fire damage is different so our highly trained technicians will take time to identify and resolve safety hazards before proceeding with the project.   Doing restoration work in fire-damaged buildings is potentially dangerous.  Some hazards that call for technicians to exercise special precaution are:

  • Electrical Hazards
    • Fire-damaged work sites are frequently wet if water was used to extinguish the fire. Mixing water and electricity is extremely dangerous!
  • Structural Hazards
    • Fire often causes damage to the structure of the building. The technicians will be cautious of loose or falling debris.
  • Slip, Trip, and Fall
    • Slip or fall accidents are a common cause of injuries. These can be avoided by following some simple preventative measures.

SERVPRO of Eastern Lake County technicians are highly trained for fire restoration.  They will plan ahead for a safe work process.  This may take a little extra time and we appreciate your patience during this difficult situation.
