The SERVPRO Short Answer to Waterbury DIY'ers for Fire Loss Cleanup Is--DON'T--Call Us!
Should You Clean Fire Damage in Waterbury Homes on Your Own?
Fire losses can be one of the most destructive forces to Waterbury homes, especially when property owners are unclear of the best approach to navigate returning the house to pre-damaged condition. As rife with detrimental effects as a structure is, even after a minor loss incident, time is of the essence to get the situation resolved. As tempting as it might be to pursue cleaning and recovery efforts on your own, many owners must question their ability to handle the workload and pressing timeline to restore their home entirely.
Restoring fire damage to Waterbury homes begins with first appreciating how widespread and severe these damages have become since the fire got extinguished. With situations like soot and smoke effects, these conditions can worsen continually until the appropriate preventative actions and cleanup occur. To avoid choosing our certified SERVPRO team is your decision, but we want to make sure that you are making the safest and best choice for your property by addressing specific effects in the correct order, with the ideal equipment, and with effective cleaning products.
Because every fire loss scenario is different, our SERVPRO team must follow a loose outline to guide mitigation and recovery efforts from when our technicians first arrive at an address. If the firefighters used a significant amount of water to put out the blaze, call us immediately for extraction, drying, and restoration. As a self-driven DIY restorer, you should consider the mid and long-term negative impacts of a less than complete restoration.
- Inspect the property and assess the damage as best (and as safely) as possible.

- Determine the presence of more pressing concerns like water and mold damages that must get addressed first.
