Fire & Smoke damage Restoration
rebuild your property
after a fire
Damage to property and contents doesn’t end when the fire is extinguished. Chemicals contained in the soot residue will continue to degrade materials and finishes, and water used in the fire suppression will continue to permeate porous materials. As a result, mold can begin to form within 24-48 hours. Connecting with us immediately will help our teams respond to your situation with mitigation and remediation services that stabilize and secure your property. After the controlled removal of damaged contents and building materials, we will begin the process of reconstruction and return your property to its pre-loss condition.
Steps to Take After A Fire
First Onsite Fire and Smoke Damage Recovery Process
Our qualified professionals have decades of experience restoring properties that have been impacted by fire and soot damage. Here are some of the actions you can expect from our teams when we arrive at your site.
As soon as the property is safe to enter, we’ll be able to assess any damage, including fire, soot, and water damage. This will allow us to build a roadmap that determines the size and scale of a project, providing a scope of work and an estimated timeline for completion.
If the fire is extensive, we will secure all entrances to the property, board up windows, and cover any major gaps in the structure.
Hundreds to thousands of gallons of water are used to put out the fire. For any standing water, we’ll extract it and begin the drying process.
Depending on the situation, we may demolish any major structural damage and remove the debris.
Clean every surface affected to remove any remaining soot, toxins, oils, and odor-causing residues.
Depending on the extent of the damage, the property will be repaired and rebuilt back to its pre-fire condition.
