In the aftermath of a fire or soot disaster, time is of the essence. That is why our technicians are on call to be available anytime, day or night for fire damage restoration here in RI and Southeastern CT. Not only does soot have a strong odor but it can easily be ground into more delicate surfaces so immediate protection of your possessions is an important part of the process.
Fire damage restoration frequently involves both soot restoration and water damage restoration as a result of firefighting efforts. It is critical that a trained restoration specialist identifies which areas must be mitigated first to prevent additional damage to your property as well as prevent future mold growth.
Common Fire Damage Restoration Causes:
♦ Cooking accident
♦ Furnace puff backs
♦ Electrical malfunction
The Fire Damage Restoration Process:
Step 1: Our project manager will review the affected area and make sure that any possible dangers have been eliminated. After a fire, there can be dangerous cleaning conditions such as electrified standing water, compromised structural elements or hazardous contamination. Our first priority is the safety of your family and our team.
Step 2: Once the area is made safe our technicians will protect any areas, such as the roof, walls or windows, that are open to the elements, and follow our water damage restoration process if water was used to put out the fire.
Step 3: Odor removal is accomplished with our commercial HEPA air scrubbers, which will be used throughout the process of soot damage cleanup and restoration to ensure that any soot particles that are released into the air during cleaning will be captured. Once the air filtration is in place we will begin identifying which items will be moved off site for cleaning and which items will be cleaned on-premises.
Step 4: While your possessions are being professionally cleaned, we will begin the reconstruction process which involves cleaning or removing any soot damaged materials and rebuilding the affected area. Once your property is restored to its original condition, it’s time to move your possessions back in!
