Fire & Water - Cleanup & Restoration

Fire Restoration Process

1/25/2022 (Permalink)

The first 24 to 48 hours after fire damage are critical for a quick recovery. An effective response that stabilizes the facility ensures the recovery of as much property as possible. Soot and smoke damage which can be very acidic increases the breakdown and building materials and personal property. To add to this, fires are most frequently extinguished with water and dry chemicals, which while effective in putting out the fire, often creates additional damage. Also, you cannot forget about the odor that is left behind. While the odor will vary depending on the both the cause and degree of damage, it is always a significant factor. The smoke odor left behind is toxic. In addition to the acidic nature of soot and smoke, they contain known carcinogens. The odor left behind after a fire may increase if the odor is not neutralized and deodorized properly and immediately. 

While all damages are unique, the fire damage restoration process is best if begun immediately following the fire. By quickly mitigating damage and providing smoke damage cleanup and water restoration after the damage first occurs, more of the property is able to be restored versus replaced.  In addition to the building damage, the personal property must also be taken into account. Our team will develop a plan to restore the personal property by evaluating several factors such as replacement cost vs. restoration cost, determining if the item is truly salvageable, loss of value or use, and sentimental value.
