Building Damaged By Fire? See Why SERVPRO is the Most Trusted Name in Texas

According to the National Fire Protection Association, there are nearly a half-million structural fires in the United States annually. In Austin, Texas, approximately 600 homes and businesses are destroyed by fire each year. If a fire destroys or damages your building, it can be a devastating experience that leaves you wondering where to turn for help.

Fire restoration companies like SERVPRO, can help you navigate how to rebuild after the fire department has rolled up their hoses. SERVPRO has the expertise and experience to restore your home or business after it suffers fire damage, as well as the water damage that results from firefighting efforts. 

SERVPRO operates from a "restore first" philosophy that focuses on restoring — rather than replacing — your home or business to pre-fire condition. 

Why SERVPRO for Fire Damage Restoration?

After firefighters extinguish a structural blaze, the building typically is left with serious fire, water, and smoke damage. SERVPRO can take care of everything from reconstructing rooms and eliminating smoke odors to water cleanup and mold removal. SERVPRO can work directly with your insurance company to reduce your stress and expedite the restoration process.

Although every fire damage situation demands a customized restoration plan, SERVPRO’s typical fire damage restoration service includes:
