What is the Purpose of Pre-Job Scoping After a Fire?

Check list We’re Faster to Any Size Disaster.

Structure fires in Reading can be destructive, but with a better understanding of the damage and spread, we can arrive with the right tools and technologies to help. 

The first impression that we could provide Reading homeowners after a fire loss incident is critical. Thus, our project manager responds immediately to emergencies as they happen to ensure that we are there when you need us, even if you have not been cleared to re-enter the property. Job scoping is a method our SERVPRO team utilizes to understand better the damage in your home and what processes are required to return the structure to the preloss condition as quickly as possible.

What Happens During the Walkthrough? 

While fire damage in Reading homes might feel overwhelming, we can take these opportunities to work with our customers to identify both the source of the fire and any pre-existing conditions. Listening to our customers' concerns helps them through the expected anxieties and stresses of fire loss incidents while still allowing our professionals to document impacted areas. This data gets entered in our Xactimate and DryBook software for the consideration of responding technicians and insurance adjusters.

What Does an Inspection Seek to Provide? 

One of the reasons that job scoping and structure evaluation is critical in the earliest stages of recovery is how much safer it can make the recovery process. During our inspection of the grounds, we can identify not only the affected areas and service needs but also potential safety hazards and compromising environmental conditions that could impact the responding technicians. Also, scoping seeks to provide:

  • Addressing Customer Concerns
  • Documenting Damage
  • Cataloging Loss
  • Photographic Evidence of the Scene

Careful consideration in structural and content damage after a fire loss can prepare our restoration technicians for what to expect when they reach your damaged address. Our SERVPRO of Reading team is available 24/7 at (610) 779-8189.
