SERVPRO Puts Safety First During Fire and Smoke Remediation of Raleigh Homes

Fire and smoke remediation of your Raleigh home are potentially dangerous. There are many known and possibly some unknown hazards in a fire-damaged home. SERVPRO technicians exercise special precautions to work around these hazards.

SERVPRO technicians are IICRC certified and undergo several hours of training to make fire and smoke remediation of your Raleigh home as safe as possible.

Common Safety Hazards SERVPRO Technicians Handle During House Fire Cleanup in Raleigh

Although many hazards lurk in a fire-damaged Raleigh structure, the most common ones include:

  • Electrical hazards- If the electric supply is still connected to the fire-damaged homes, SERVPRO technicians check the power distribution panel and turn off all circuit breakers. We use instruments called ground fault circuit interrupters (GFCIs) that can cut the power if they sense too much current while working in a wet environment.
  • Structural hazards- Fire and smoke damage can create structural issues in buildings. Restorers are equipped with hard hats and work safety boots to protect them from falling debris if present. In some cases, an engineer needs to verify the soundness of the structure before fire damage restoration can begin.
