Whether it’s the very first fire you’ve experienced or you’ve gone through this type of situation before, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed. Nothing seems normal and it’s difficult to get your bearings to navigate the restoration process. That’s why ServiceMaster by TLC is here. More than just licensed, insured, and highly experienced professionals, we’re a team of caring individuals. We see these disasters regularly and are honored to share our restoration skillset to help members of the Bridge City community.

After all, even though we have support from a national brand, we are local. And not only does that mean we have a strong pulse on the weather in the area, but it also means we’re available for rapid response. Emergencies don’t wait until business hours, which is why we answer phone calls 24/7. If you need assistance, we will quickly dispatch a specialty crew to mitigate any damage. It does not take long for damage to extend beyond the flames. Within minutes, surfaces become discolored. In a matter of hours, your appliance finishes can turn yellow. And ash and smoke cause etching in materials that can permanently damage them. Plus, the odor left behind from fires lingers and permeates, meaning it will require professional treatment to fully eradicate. Don’t hesitate to reach out and get help!

Restoring Your Home and Possessions After a Fire

House fires occur in any number of ways, whether it’s a kitchen accident, electrical hazard, or a wildfire, you name it. What’s important is understanding the proper recovery procedure for each situation. Even though we will create a custom plan for restoring your home, our process typically includes:

  • Site security with tarps and boards
  • Assistance securing temporary housing
  • Removing items ruined beyond recovery
  • Carefully relocating possessions to an offsite facility for cleaning
  • Inspecting the home for structural stability
  • Drying and dehumidifying water left from firefighting efforts
  • Assessing for mold growth and eliminating it
  • Performing construction to bring the property back to pre-loss condition
  • Deodorizing and sealing to keep out smoke odors permanently
  • Cleaning and sanitizing possessions before bringing them back to the home
  • Help getting through any tricky insurance claims
  • Returning everything to its original position

We’re here to do what it takes to help you get back to normal life. But you don’t need to take our word for it. That’s what these reviews are for! That, and they keep us accountable to our high standards of excellence. No two houses or fires are going to be the same. That’s why we’re here.

Preventing Future Fire Disasters in Your Home

At ServiceMaster by TLC, we understand the devastating effects of fire disasters on homes and families. While we are here to provide professional fire damage restoration services in Bridge City, we also believe in the importance of prevention. By taking proactive steps to prevent fires in your home, you can protect your loved ones and avoid the need for costly restoration.

Here are some tips to help you prevent fire disasters:

  • Install smoke detectors: Make sure you have working smoke detectors on every level of your home, including inside bedrooms and outside sleeping areas.
  • Create a fire escape plan: Develop a fire escape plan with your family and practice it regularly. Make sure everyone knows the fastest and safest route to exit the house in case of a fire.
  • Keep flammable items away from heat sources: Store flammable materials, such as gasoline, cleaning products, and paint, in a cool and ventilated area away from heat sources.
  • Never leave cooking unattended: Always stay in the kitchen while cooking, especially when using the stovetop. If you need to leave, turn off the heat or ask someone to watch over the cooking.
  • Check electrical cords and outlets: Regularly inspect electrical cords for fraying or damage, and replace them if necessary. Avoid overloading outlets and use surge protectors for added safety.
  • Practice safe smoking habits: If you smoke, make sure to properly extinguish cigarettes and dispose of them in designated ashtrays. Avoid smoking in bed or when feeling drowsy.
  • Keep space heaters clear: Maintain a safe distance between space heaters and any flammable objects, such as curtains or furniture. Always turn off space heaters when leaving the room or going to bed.
  • Store matches and lighters safely: Keep matches and lighters out of reach of children and store them in a secure place.

By following these fire prevention tips, you can significantly reduce the risk of a fire disaster in your home. However, if a fire does occur, remember that ServiceMaster by TLC is here to provide professional fire damage restoration services to help you recover and restore your home.
