Nothing is quite as devastating as the aftermath of a fire. Seeing your home destroyed by smoke, soot and water can leave you reeling and unsure of where to turn for help.

When it comes to repairing residential fire damage Durango has been relying on the professionals of SERVPRO to provide support in their time of need. Residents here know that the key to repairing fire damage is acting quickly and using the right approach and nobody does that better than SERVPRO.

There’s no wonder why Durango is the most populous municipality in La Plata County. There is so much that this community has to offer, from its breathtaking natural beauty to its rich historic heritage.

It’s even attracted the attention of Hollywood, serving as the setting for more than 30 films over the years, including the iconic scene when Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid plunged into the waters of the Animas River off of nearby Baker’s Bridge.

With all of that natural beauty surrounding us, it’s hard to imagine the devastation of fire intruding but unfortunately it can sometimes happen. Those are the times when SERVPRO can make all the difference by responding faster to any disaster and helping to make you whole again.

Know What To Expect When Fire Strikes

Fire damage can take many forms and it’s important to understand them all so that you can be sure you’re taking the right approach to restoration.

The most obvious effect is from flames, which can reduce wood and other materials to cinders and weaken structural supports. Smoke permeates surfaces and leaves behind noxious odors.

As it sinks deeper under the surface it will require industrial strength cleaning materials and techniques to be completely removed. Soot can cover every exposed surface and even seep into the tiniest of cracks and crevices.

Even worse, it can also become airborne, making it a serious health concern if it’s inhaled.  

While water is essential to help put the fire out, it can cause its own damage, from weakening already damaged structures to producing potentially hazardous mold infestation.

A thorough, professional restoration will address all of these potential sources of damage so that your property can be completely restored to its previous state.

We’ll even employ specialized techniques to treat everything from carpets, drapes and wallpaper to electronics, clothing and works of art. If there is anything that we deem unsalvageable we’ll put it aside for you to make a final decision.

We’ll never throw anything out without your permission. Once the work is done we’ll perform a complete walkthrough of the property with you to make sure you’re completely satisfied.

We understand how upsetting this process is for you and how important it is to get your life back to normal, which is why we won’t sign off on any job until we know you’re pleased with the results.
