Efficient Inspection Services Aid Dallas Fire Restoration
Fire Restoration Estimating Relies on Inspections
Estimations are one of the earliest expectations between the communication maintained from SERVPRO restorers to an insurance adjuster or homeowner privately paying for the cleanup and recovery of their property following a fire. Inspections help to provide a fast turnaround of these estimations and project objectives.
The Importance of Inspections
When fire restoration for Dallas homes begins, SERVPRO professionals must have a firm grasp of the property’s conditions and any safety concerns. The homeowner and insurance company expect precise, and itemized estimations and job scopes made possible with experienced assessments. The use of industry-wide Xactimate software expedites the accumulation and transfer of these data points. Inspectors are looking for:
- Damaged structure
- Soot risks
- Ruined contents
- Water damage
Early Mitigation Solutions
One of the advantages of starting inspection services as soon as our team arrives is the designation of priorities that might ultimately cause greater harm to the structure. Restoration can be slowed by a high concentration of soot particles in the environment or wet materials that must be removed and discarded before cleaning can continue. Inspections help determine where recovery efforts should begin.
Reaching Set Restoration Goals
Inspections and assessments are also critical in creating a restoration plan and setting recovery goals. Clear and concise milestones allow for easier tracking of progress in cleaning and remediating post-fire damage. The inspection conducted by our production manager ensures that the worst conditions get prioritized.
Working with Insurance Providers
The inspection process is critical for the relationship between SERVPRO technicians and office staff, and your insurance provider. The adjuster will need a detailed and itemized estimation and recovery plan to approve a damage claim. Getting this process started as soon as possible ensures an expedited approval turnaround, so restoration work is not delayed. Scoping the fire damage is crucial and of paramount importance.
