Steps of the Fire Damage Restoration Process: Piecing Your Life Back Together

Fire is scary for many people and the thought of a fire destroying your life is even scarier. If this tragedy has happened to you, you may be looking for answers and you may be wondering just how you can recover and piece your life back together. As your fire damage restoration experts, we wanted to sit down and talk to you about the steps of the fire damage restoration process, so that you understand them and know what to expect.

Step One: Contacting the Proper Authorities

The very first step in the process is contacting the appropriate emergency authorities to respond to the situation. It is extremely important that you contact 911 as soon as you know the fire has started or is out of control. You do NOT want to fight it on your own and the sooner you contact emergency services, the quicker they can get to your home.

The fire department will put out the fire in your home, but the aftermath of the process can be quite devastating. If the fire alone wasn’t enough, now you have to worry about smoke and water damage on top of that.

Step Two: Assessing the Situation

The next step in the process is to assess the situation. Once you have secured us as your fire damage restoration company, we will respond to your home and look over the damage. We take into consideration everything from how much water damage is present to how much soot has been left on the walls and where it is located.

At this point, we will be able to let you know what our next steps are and how much it will cost you to restore your home. If your home is deemed a total loss, we will work with you on the next steps to take.

Step Three: Protecting Your Home

This step in the process will include sealing off your home and placing tarps and boards where needed to help support the home structurally and to provide a bit of security for the home. We do not want the damage to get worse either, so our sealing and tarping services will help to protect your home from further damage.

If we find any problems in your home along the way, we will correct the situation before the home is sealed off.

Step Four: Clean Up and Restoration Begins

Now the cleanup and restoration services will begin. Our team of professionals will navigate your home and clean up any and all areas that have smoke, soot, fire, or water damage. We do our best to remove all residue and instances that will remind you of the tragedy that once happened in your home.
