The Fire Damage Restoration Process

Since 1997, RestorePro has been one of the most trusted property restoration companies in the area. Our clients know that they can count on us to bring their property back to pre-event condition as smoothly and efficiently as possible.

One of the reasons that our neighbors call on us is our predictable and transparent process. While every property restoration project is unique, the process itself is similar in any case.

The first step is assessment. Our experts look over your property, and determine the type and extent of damage. In many cases, you will find that there is more than one type of damage present. Firefighting efforts often leave behind significant amounts of water. Water damage that is not promptly handled can turn into mold. Fires also leave a lot of residues behind. Smoke and soot, ashes, and chemicals from extinguishers can coat surfaces and leave nasty residues. When mixed with water the sludgy mess can be even more difficult to remove. Our experts can determine what areas of the home are affected, what types of damage there are, and how extensive the affected area is.

The second important step is securing your home. Open walls and roof areas will be covered with tarps and other materials. Damaged windows or doors might be boarded up. Securing your home is vital to protect against weather, prevent thieves and vandalism, and protect unwitting wanderers from injury. In some cases, we might even install temporary fencing to secure the area.

The third stage is planning. In some cases most of the damage can be eradicated with some minor cleanup. In others, areas of the property might require a total re-build. What can be restored? What needs to be removed and replaced? What items needs to be sent out to specialists? The answers will be different in every situation. We will create a plan to restore, repair, or replace both the structure of your property and the possessions within.

The fourth stage is the actual restoration. Water is removed using pumps and other equipment. Any materials and items that can’t be restored will be hauled away. Drywall, carpeting, and other materials that are absorbent or heat-sensitive usually have to be replaced. Our property restoration experts will work to return the structure to pre-fire condition as quickly and efficiently as possible.

The final stage is putting the finishing touches on your property. From choosing the right wood finishes to putting on the final coat of paint, our team makes sure that everything is clean and completely restored. You can count on us to leave you with a property that is fully functional and as close to original condition as possible.

While no one wants to experience a fire, at least you know who to call in if you do. The RestorePro team can be reached 24 hours a day, 7 days a week at 781-664-9800.
