Recovering from Fire Damage
A fire in your home or business can cause a lot of damage very quickly, and not just from items burned directly by the fire. Damage is also caused to your property by smoke, ash, and even the water used to extinguish the fire. Left untreated, ash and smoke residue can etch window glass, discolor plastics and appliances, and leave behind a persistent, difficult to remove odor. This secondary fire damage can only be prevented if a fire damage restoration professional treats your property right away.
After the Fire: What to Do First
Once the fire is extinguished and everyone is safe and accounted for, call your insurance company to report the loss. And then call Flood Damage Pro. We're available 24/7 to respond to your emergency. We'll arrive at your location ASAP, ready to begin the cleanup and restoration immediately.
While waiting for us to arrive, it's crucial to ensure safety and prevent further damage.
- First and foremost, do not enter your property unless it's been declared safe by a fire marshal.
- Try to limit movement within the property to prevent soot particles from getting embedded into upholstery and carpets.
- If it's safe to do so, cover your furniture and carpets with plastic or sheets to protect them from soot and dust.
- Remember, do not attempt to clean anything yourself, as improper cleaning can cause permanent damage.
- Keep any receipts of expenses for your insurance company.
Our restoration professionals can give you advice on if it is safe to stay in your fire damaged property during the restoration. Besides possible structural damage, smoke and ash residue can significantly decrease air quality. If the water used to extinguish the fire is not dried quickly, it can cause mold and mildew growth in addition.
Fire Damage Restoration Services
The team of skilled technicians at Flood Damage Pro is dedicated to delivering comprehensive fire damage restoration services. Our experts are here to provide the utmost care and expertise in restoring your property to its original condition.
Fire Damage Cleanup
Our meticulous fire damage cleanup process goes beyond just surface cleaning. The residues left by fire, including soot and ash, are highly acidic. Leaving these materials untouched can lead to the corrosion of metals, fading of colors, and a persistent, unpleasant odor. We thoroughly sanitize affected areas to halt damage. This also removes harmful particles that can cause respiratory issues, so you can feel reassured that the area will be safe for you when we are finished.
We remove all debris that can't be cleaned or repaired, like curtains, drywall, carpeting, and other materials. As part of our commitment to environmental responsibility, discarded materials are handled and disposed of in accordance with local regulations.
Deodorization & Decontamination
The worst part about fire damage is that the smoke goes everywhere, and the smell lingers. With our specialized techniques, we treat your property to eliminate any lingering smoky odors.
