Fire Damage Restoration Process
Comprehensive Services for Fire Damage Restoration and Repair
Fire can cause major damage to your property. SERVPRO of Spokane County is the trusted professional resource for fire damage repair and restoration. Our experienced team uses exclusive technology to produce fast and effective results.
Potential Damage Caused by Fires
Besides the excessive damage to your structures, the smoke and soot produced by the fire can contaminate your entire property. Furthermore, the water used to extinguish the fire requires professional cleaning to prevent further problems, such as mold growth.
We use advanced equipment and techniques to remove and remediate all traces of fire and water damage. We are available 24/7 to provide emergency repairs and restoration.
Our Streamlined Process
We begin the fire damage restoration process as soon we arrive on the scene. First, your damage will be thoroughly inspected. If your home requires a roof tarp or boarding up, this will be carried out before performing water removal and drying. We then remove soot and smoke from the entire building, then clean and repair all damaged structures, followed by restoration to pre-fire condition.
As a locally owned and operated Spokane business, we are committed to doing the right thing by our community.

Every fire damage event is a little different, and requires a unique solution, but the general process stays the same. The steps listed below illustrate our process for the “typical” fire damage emergency.
Step 1: Emergency Contact
The restoration process begins when you call us. Our representative will ask questions regarding the fire damage event that will help us respond immediately with the appropriate equipment and resources.
Step 2: Inspection and Fire Damage Assessment
We carefully inspect and test adjoining rooms of your property to determine the extent of the fire, smoke, and soot damage. This step is crucial to developing a plan of action.
Step 3: Immediate Board-Up and Roof-Tarp Service
Fire damage can often compromise windows, walls, and roofs. To maintain security and to protect against further damage, we can board up missing windows and walls and place tarps on damaged roofs.
Step 4: Water Removal and Drying (if water damage is present)
The water removal process begins almost immediately and removes the majority of the water. We then use dehumidifiers and air movers to remove the remaining water and complete the drying process.
Step 5: Removal of Smoke and Soot from All Surfaces
We use specialized equipment and techniques to remove smoke and soot from ceilings, walls, and other surfaces.
Step 6: Cleaning and Sanitizing
We clean, sanitize, and disinfect all of the restorable items and structures that were damaged by the fire. We use a variety of cleaning techniques to restore your belongings to pre-fire condition. We’re also trained to remove odors using industrial air scrubbers and fogging equipment.
Step 7: Restoration
Restoration is the final step—getting your home or business to its pre-fire condition. Restoration may involve minor repairs, such as replacing drywall, painting, and installing new carpet; or it may entail major repairs such as the reconstruction of various areas or rooms in a home or business.
