Fire Damage to Your Home: What to do.

After you have determined that your family is safe, it’s vital to listen to all appropriate authorities. Even when fire damage in your home seems minimal, there could be underlying safety issues that can compromise your home, and more importantly, your safety.

When we’re contracted by our clients to repair a fire-damaged home, our first mode of business is to ensure that you and your family have a plan in place. We then begin to assess the fire damage and initiate repairs. Fire damage can be a complicated process, and we have found that having a direct line of communication for our clients to their project management team helps reduce any gaps or errors in communication. Our PM team will speak with you regularly to update you on any major milestones during your fire restoration project.

Our Fire Damage Restoration Process

The fire damage restoration process for a home can vary depending on the extent of the damage, but here are some general steps that are typically involved:

What To Expect During Your Fire Damage Restoration:

  1. Safety Assessment: The first step is to ensure that the property is safe to enter. As a professionally licensed restoration company, we will assess the structure and determine if any hazards exist, such as unstable floors, weakened walls or ceilings, or electrical dangers.
  2. Water Removal: Most of the general public that has not experienced fire damage won’t even consider this, but yes, you will need a water damage restoration team along with your fire damage restoration team. Thankfully, we’re a full-service restoration company and can help you with both. If the fire was extinguished using water, we will need to remove any standing water or moisture to prevent further damage to the property.
  3. Smoke and Soot Removal: Smoke and soot can cause extensive damage to a home, and they can be difficult to remove. Smoke and soot can get into all areas of your home, even if the fire damage is located in a set and confined area. Soot has been known to damage HVAC systems as well. Our certified team will use specialized equipment and techniques to thoroughly clean and deodorize the affected areas.
  4. Structural Assessment: Once the smoke and soot have been removed, our team will assess the structural integrity of the property to determine what repairs are needed. This may include repairing or replacing damaged walls, ceilings, floors, and roofing. This portion is essential not only for the plan of action when it comes to restoring your home but also for the timeline by which your home can be fully restored. Our Project managers will walk with you through the entire outcome of all assessments.
  5. Content Restoration: Fire damage can also affect personal belongings and furniture in the home. We will remove salvageable items and repair them using expert equipment and solutions. You may also have items that carry sentimental value but may be badly damaged. Our team can help you recover any/all items and we will make the best recommendations for you.
  6. Repairs and Reconstruction: Once the structural assessment is complete, our team will begin repairing and reconstructing the property. This may include painting, flooring, plumbing, and electrical repairs, as well as replacing damaged fixtures, appliances, and furniture. In many cases, our team will work with you not just to repair your home to it’s pre-damage status, but we can work with you to help refine key areas that will need to be remodeled.
  7. Final Cleaning and Deodorization: After all the repairs are complete, our team will conduct a final cleaning and deodorization of the property to ensure that it is safe and habitable once again.
