Fire, soot and smoke damage may have great impact on the structure of your home or business. In addition, the odors created by the fire can linger for many years. Our exceptionally well trained technicians incorporate their knowledge and the latest equipment to protect your property and belongings from any further damage and restore what can be saved.
The process begins immediately upon your phone call to us. We assess the present condition of your property and start by boarding up the areas with the most damage. A tarp is placed over the roof surface if applicable, and we proceed to remove the smoke and soot from all surfaces. In many cases, water damage accompanies the fire damage. We remove any excess water, then dry and sanitize the property to eliminate the odors. Repairs are performed after the structure is free of debris and is safe to enter.
Every restoration process is unique and requires particular solutions. A plan of action is developed after the property is fully inspected including the adjoining rooms and other structures around the damaged building. Missing windows, doors and walls are boarded up to assure security and prevent any further damage from the elements such as wind or rain.
If any water damage is present, the overflow is pumped out followed by the use of dehumidifiers and air movers to complete the drying process. Soot and debris are removed from floors, ceiling and walls. Fogging equipment and air scrubbers may be used to eliminate the odors and prevent mold from forming. The final step is the restoration to bring the property to its original pre-fire condition. It may consist of minor repairs, such as carpet replacement or major repairs such as complete reconstruction of the home.
After the fire is extinguished, visible damages are typically severe. Many victims are faced with arrangements for interim housing, insurance matters, health issues and salvaging their belongings may not be a top priority at the moment. However, timing is important as the delays in fire damage removal may have harsh consequences. Within minutes after the blaze is contained, acidic soot begins to settle on all surfaces. Within days, it will cause corrosion and rusting. Within weeks, it may cause irreparable harm.
We have high standards when fire restoration is concerned. We understand how devastating the damages can be, and we work quickly to rebuild your home and rescue your belongings. The entire process is explained in detail to the property owner to assure satisfactory outcome.
