When your property has been damaged by fire, smoke or water, a quick and thorough restoration is an essential part of getting your business or residence back up and running. Fire, smoke and water damage can be more difficult to deal with than many people realize, so it’s important to have the help of a professional to prevent any future issues. Following a fire your building likely has significant smoke and water damage (from the firefighters efforts to stop the fire) in addition to the obvious structural damage. Fire, smoke and water restoration professionals can help you reclaim your space and get you back on your feet by offering different services for the different issues you are facing. Let’s take a look at the different services needed following a fire.
Fire Damage Restoration
Fire damage is not limited to the actual burn damage from a fire, but also smoke and soot damage/debris and restoring can be a lot of work and require hours of cleaning and restoration. A fire restoration company will check the structural integrity of your home, the functionality of the home’s utilities, and remove any debris or trash. The restoration company will also remove any damaged carpeting, drywall, structures, etc. In many cases the building’s roof is compromised and in need of immediate covering, and often windows need to be boarded up and holes secured to prevent additional damage while the restoration takes place.
Smoke Damage Restoration
The damage the physical fire does to your home or business can be devastating, but the damage does not stop there. Smoke can also cause significant damage in the event of a fire, and this damage needs proper care and attention. Following a fire smoke and soot settle on every surface of a home, and can be difficult to remove. Professional restoration companies can safely and effectively remove smoke and soot from even the most hard to reach surfaces, leaving your building or home free of harmful allergens and irritants.
Water Damage Restoration
The other major issue following a fire is water damage. Firefighters work tirelessly to stop flames using huge amounts of water, leaving behind water and water damage that needs to be dealt with. In significant fires this water damage equates to the damage of a flood, requiring a significant amount of cleanup and structural repairs. Following a fire drywall will need to be inspected and replaced, water will need to be properly removed from flooring, walls, ceilings, etc. Without proper removal of excess water any leftover moisture could lead to mold issues in the future, so water removal and damage restoration is an essential part of fire damage restoration.
