Do I Know if I Have to Move Out After I Suffer from a Fire?
If You Ever Have Fire Damage in Your Largo Home SERVPRO Can Help Determine if Your House is Livable or Not
Our SERVPRO technicians can take several steps during the initial inspection process to determine if you can stay in your dwelling during the restoration process. It all boils down to whether your building's structure is sound or not and if you can still have your necessities available to you after the blaze occurs.
What factors can force me to move out of my home during the restoration process?
During any fire damage restoration in Largo, our SERVPRO team looks at several occurrences, including the following:
- Safety Hazards: During some situations, there can be hazards that can make your home unlivable. When the blaze severely burns sections of your structure, then you may have to leave your house during the restoration process.
- Structural Integrity Issues: Some fires can cause your wooden studs or ceiling trusses to get burnt. If the charring is deep enough, your structural components could become weak and deem your building not safe for occupants.
- Lack of Access to Utilities: Suffering from a house fire can cause necessary utilities to become unavailable. For example, burnt materials could cause electrical shorts, a loss of water, or natural gas resources. If you are unable to keep up your usual living situation after items burn inside your house, you will most likely have to move out during the remediation procedures.
If I move out of my home during the restoration process, do you have to remove my contents?
During more severe fire restoration procedures, it is more efficient to restore your structural components and personal items separately. It is much easier to clean contents in an unaffected area, just like it works better to restore a structure free of the moveable items in your house.
If you ever happen to have even a small fire torch items inside your house in Belleair Bluffs or Indian Rocks Beach, call SERVPRO of Largo at (727) 586-0060.
