The Steps We Take When Dealing With Fire Damage Restoration

/, Smoke Damage/The Steps We Take When Dealing With Fire Damage Restoration

If your home or business has been through a fire, it might seem as if all is lost. The challenge of getting your property back to the way it was might seem overwhelming. As we all know, It’s more than fire damage too, as there will be smoke damage as well as water damage to deal with.

What you need right now is an expert who knows how to take care of everything and get your property back to pre-fire condition. 

Our team has been handling fire damage restoration in South Florida for over 25 years, and we have the expertise to get your home back to normal as quickly and safely as possible.

The following steps are what it will take to mitigate and repair your fire-damaged home or business.

1. We come to your home or business and assess the fire damage.

We will first make sure the property is safe to enter by looking for structural damage. Then we assess everything, paying attention to every detail to develop a thorough plan for recovery. This initial inspection is critical to allow us to develop a plan to quickly get your life back on track. 

This process will allow us to determine what the priorities are to safely restore your property. Our goal is to get it done right so your property value stays the way it was before the fire.

2. Install temporary boarding.

It is most likely that you will have broken windows and doors. There might even be holes in the exterior walls. Fire damage could also occur on your roof leaving openings and damage that will need to be repaired. During this step, we will board up any openings on the home or roof to make sure everything inside is safe.

3. Water removal is the next step in fire damage restoration.

Removing the water that was used to put the fire out needs to be done quickly. If not, you will have even more problems on your hands. There could also be leaks in the plumbing system due to fire damage. 

Mold and mildew do not take very long to form, and this can create a health hazard if it is allowed to develop. If we do find mold or mildew growth, we will initiate processes to remove that as well.

Another thing that can develop is rust. Water damage can cause any metal to oxidize making it corrode and rust. This also includes the electronics in your home. Circuit breakers and alarm systems could fail over time if rust is allowed to develop in their components.

Our team of experts will use special equipment and processes to make sure everything gets dried out quickly. That way mold, mildew, and rust won’t have a chance to create problems for you later on down the road.

4. Removal of fire-damaged possessions.

Unfortunately, there will be some items in your home that will have to be thrown out. Some things might just need to be repaired which could save you money instead of having to replace them.

Some things may have been damaged by smoke, fire, or water and though they may still look safe to handle, it might be the exact opposite. Our experts will thoroughly assess all of the items in the house to ensure they are safe for handling. 

5. Cleaning and removal of soot and smoke damage.

The odor of smoke can last a long time if not treated correctly. We will use specialized equipment to remove the smell and leave your property free of any lingering odors.

We will also remove soot from all the surfaces and salvageable items. Finally, we will clean and sanitize everything to ensure it is safe. 

When you come back to your home or business you’ll be able to start fresh and get on with your life.
