House fires can be devastating. The combination of smoke, flames, and water damage from the fire being put out can cause significant damage while smoke, odors, residue, and biohazard contaminants left by the disaster also pose serious health risks if kept untreated.
Fire damage restoration is the process of reinstating the property damaged by fire and smoke to its original state. It can take weeks or months to finish depending on the extent of damage sustained as it involves more than just salvaging lost or burned possessions.
Specifically, the process also includes rapid response mobilization, cleaning, deodorization, debris removal, odor and soot removal, controlled property demolition, board-up, reconstruction, and water extraction and drying out.
The water used by firefighters can also be damaging to the property, not just the flames of the fire itself. From furniture and fixtures to linens, clothes, appliances, and gadgets, water can wreak havoc and cause significant damage. If left on the property long, the damage may also worsen more and more.
Water damage restoration involves a full range of water damage remediation techniques for water removal, drying, and dehumidifying to prevent further damage to the property.
In addition, this type of residential restoration services may also include restorative and specialty drying techniques, structural drying and deep cleaning, and rapid response mobilization.
Soot and smoke are a toxic combination of dangerous gases and a deadly enemy to all those exposed to them. Prolonged exposure can cause a wide range of health issues such as breathing issues, eye irritation, asthma, and cancer. They can even be fatal to some people.
This is why soot and smoke damage restoration involves the use of a combination of services, processes, and techniques to remove all signs of toxic soot and smoke.
The process includes deodorizing the building, cleaning the affected areas, recreating malodor, sealing the air space with oxidizers like ozone generators, shoring and bracing, boarding up the structural damage, and installing safety tarps.
House fire can wreak havoc on the contents of the property. From furniture, gadgets, important papers and documents, linens, and clothes, the damage caused not just by the flame but by the water used by the firefighters can be destructive.
Content restoration can help remedy that. It’s the application of the best techniques for treating the belongings, depending on the source and extent of the damages.
