When we get a call at RestorePro for fire damage restoration, we don’t know what we will find at the scene. We hope there will be no injuries or lives lost. It’s always good if the home or building can be restored to safe use. Our noble firefighters are on the scene to save lives and prevent the spread of fire. Saving the structure is not their primary goal. They are superb at their job so frequently the structure is salvageable with fire damage restoration. A fire may be small and still cause extensive smoke and water damage. Cleaning that up and making the building safe again is a job for RestorePro. Water damage may be extensive but we suction it out and treat the area to prevent wood rot and mold. It can take a while but drying out is an important final step in fire damage restoration.
The Hard Part of Fire Damage Restoration is the Smoke!
Smoke odors and soot will hang in the air and permeate everything in your home. It is best to not try to live in the house until we complete the restoration. Those with weak respiratory systems will be uncomfortable from breathing in the fouled air. Soot and water make a black inky substance that seems to spread with a life of its own. Therefore, we don’t recommend you try washing down walls and ceilings yourself. We have cleaning solutions and equipment at RestorePro to do a thorough job. Clothing, upholstery and carpet requires special dry cleaning techniques to get the visible soot and the invisible odor from your belongings. Our team are all professional and experienced, so the work goes quickly.
