Why Fire Restoration is Time Critical
When a fire is finally extinguished, it is important to recognize that the damage is far from over. Synthetic materials create an array of chemical reactions during the burn process. In just a few days, things that might have been salvageable will be ruined. Our technicians know the proper chemical agents that will effectively clean your belongings without damaging them. This includes soot and stain removal from items made from brass, chrome, aluminum, tile, marble and many fabrics.
The Fire Restoration Process
While every fire restoration project is unique, there are several phases of the process that will help to restore your property to its original condition.
- Emergency Pre-cleaning: When our technicians arrive at your home or business, they will make sure the building is secure by sealing the windows and doors if necessary. In some instances, they may install temporary walls or roofing to prevent additional damage from occurring. When the building is secure, their efforts will focus on limiting the damage resulting from soot and water.
- Contents Restoration: Once the structure is secure, we will assess the damage to the contents of your home or office. We will separate the items that haven’t been affected by the fire from those that have been exposed to soot, smoke or water. Every damaged item will be documented, dried, cleaned and deodorized.
- Water Damage Restoration: Water is an essential part of extinguishing a fire, and it is also very corrosive. When water flows freely, it can quickly cause damage to both the structure and contents. Our technicians employ a process that includes complete water extraction and concentrated drying efforts.
- Odor Elimination: Airborne soot and smoke will penetrate even the smallest cracks in the building. These contaminants must be traced along their entire pathway and thoroughly cleaned and deodorized before the finish work can begin. ServiceMaster Restoration by the Disaster Response Experts technicians are trained to detect and eliminate odors, which is an essential part of every fire restoration project.
