Fire is the result of oxygen present in the atmosphere interacting with a combustible fuel, such as carpet, furniture, or drywall. Every form of fuel has its own its own ignition temperature. When the surrounding heat breaches that limit, a fire will ignite.
One result of this fire can be poisonous gases that are released into the air in the form of smoke. Not only that, fire is self-perpetuating – as it contacts other fuels, the chemical reaction is passed on to these components and the will fire spreads. In these cases, smoke and soot can cause damage, but heat is the most destructive product of a fire.
Fire Damage Restoration Solutions
When a fire occurs, the most importance thing is putting out the flames as soon as possible. Water is usually the best way to do that, but after the fire is out, you still have to deal with the water damage. Restoring soot and smoke damages should come on its heels very soon after as this is a corrosive substance. Without proper treatment, this substance can ruin surfaces, electronics, finishes, fabrics, and building materials, leaving further damage on your property.
Water must be removed and the structure thoroughly dried as soon as possible to prevent mold growth. Bio hazards like mold which grow rapidly in a high-humidity environment. All it needs is excess moisture, oxygen, and an organic surface.
Step 1: Inspection and Damage Assessment
Our team first examines the extent of the structural damage and the damage on the content caused directly by the fire and property degradation brought on by water damage. Our team will examine actual physical damage and the potential of microbe infestation within the affected areas.
Damp furniture, fabric and wood, will become the perfect environment for black mold or other harmful bio hazard to flourish if left untreated for a period of time. Before we proceed with our process, you will be given a reasonable estimate after our team has inspected the damaged building and contents and drawn up their plans for restoration.
Step 2: Board-Up and Roof Tarping
The next step in our procedure is making your home or business secured against outside sources that can bring on further damage to your property, such as weather and vandalism. Protective barriers will be set up and the roof covered with special tarps laid out to allow rain to flow harmlessly to the ground, leaving your home or building and all its contents unaffected.
We provide extra measures to protect our customers and their property. A burned building becomes a prime target for break-ins and vandalism as long as it remains unoccupied. The barriers also will help avoid injuries that might be suffered by intruders, which can lead to litigious complications for the property owners.
Step 3: Salvaging of Contents and Demolition/Removal of Debris
Many items in a home – heirlooms, family photos, wedding china – are an integral part of your family’s life and not just objects with no emotional value. At the same time, we work with you during this part of the process to safely dispose of any debris and unsalvageable contents in your property. Furniture, appliances, fixtures and any other possession that can be saved, restored and cleaned will be identified and set aside.
If we can save an item from damaging moisture and soot, we will do so because in your place of business everything is a part of your company’s productivity. You, no doubt, have your assets insured, but replacing something takes time. If it can be restored to use, it will be. So, each item salvaged will be another piece of equipment that won’t have to be replaced.
Step 4: Water Removal and Drying
If not dealt with quickly and appropriate with the right equipment and techniques, water combined with smoke, soot, and the contents of your structure can result in a hazardous living or work environment.
We will use professional-grade equipment to remove any standing water early in the restoration process. Powerful air movers, industrial fans, and dehumidifiers will be used to remove all moisture and humidity which might contribute to things like black mold or other biohazards.
Also, we will use cutting-edge technology in this part of the process. Special hydrometers, and other moisture detectors will find any hidden pockets of moisture within walls or under flooring, where micro-organisms might hide for a long period of time.
Step 5: Cleaning of Smoke and Soot from All Surfaces
Our primary goal is to create a healthful environment and return your property to an optimal quality at least equal to what it was before the fire. To this end, we use HEPA vacuuming as we clean air conditioning and heating units, removing airborne pollutants.
Then, all the residual smoke and soot is targeted for removal. At the same time the structure and contents are treated for microbial infestations. Everything is thoroughly sanitized, using powerful regulation-approved equipment, detergents, and antimicrobials to ensure a healthy environment before you occupy your home or business again. Finally, we clean any appliances, fixtures, carpets, floors and other surviving contents and restore them to effective use.
Step 6: Restoration
The Remediation Team will perform a last inspection of your home or business to ensure all water damage has been addressed. Afterwards, they will bring all salvaged and restored content back into the premises. Then, you will be given a walk-through to take a look at the restored and finished areas.
Step 7: Support the Insurance Claims Process
The final service we give is helping you process your insurance claim. We will do what we can in helping you secure the best possible reimbursement for your losses.
