2. Inspection and Assessment

We quickly inspect all affected interiors as well as contents and personal belongings. Based on that assessment, we outline an action plan for cleanup and restoration.

Our technicians explain the details, encourage your input and answer any questions.

3. Board-Up and Tarping Services

With your go-ahead, we get started by boarding up any broken windows and doors. If needed, we tarp the roof and take whatever steps are necessary to secure your property. We also confirm the condition of interior structures.

4. Structural Tear-Out and Disposal

Next, we clear out general debris and establish a safe working environment. Our teams tear out ruined walls, floors and ceilings. We gather up unsalvageable contents and belongings. Everything is hauled away for disposal.

5. Water Damage Mitigation

Extinguishing a fire leaves behind widespread water damage. Our technicians take care of it with highly efficient water extraction techniques and industrial-strength drying equipment.

We also eliminate mold from wet materials with certified removal and remediation.

6. Smoke and Soot Cleanup

Stains and contamination from smoke and soot are addressed with an arsenal of cleaning agents and tools.

Our teams remove all traces of smoke and soot damage using specialized degreasers, metal cleaners, stain removers, odor absorbents and soot sponges.

With this last step, we return your home or business to its pre-loss condition. Walls are rebuilt, floors repaired and ceilings replaced. Every detail, from baseboards to wainscoting, is carefully finished.

This is the second time I've used ServiceMaster. I needed the walls and ceiling in my kitchen to be removed due to a water leak from the unit above me. They were super cautious of my furniture and covered everything with plastic. I hired them to do my reconstruction as well and am extremely happy with my new cabinets!

I had 4 inches of standing water in my basement. ServiceMaster was able to pump all the water out of the basement and cleaned and sanitized my floors and walls. I’m extremely impressed by how quick they worked and how clean they left my basement!

While we were out of town our vanity mirror fell and turned on our sink faucet. Water was running for days, we're not sure when it happened, the fire department was alerted when the house sensors got wet and set off the alarms. our neighbor came over when she saw the fire department. We were called immediately. Our agent highly recommended neil at service master. He came out with a huge team and a general manager. I felt very comfortable with him and all office staff to get the job done while we were still out of town. My neighbor checked in on them until we returned. 80% of my entire house was gutted. I have a lot of custom wall paneling, crown molding and trim. They were able to save it all. They also did my packout and duct work cleaning. Everyone at service master was extremely knowledgeable and professionaland very helpful.
