Everything happens fast when a fire damages your Logan home or business. Flames can devour and destroy property in a matter of minutes. The ensuing damage will only worsen as time goes by, so it is important to respond as quickly as possible. Fire damage restoration services from professionals like the team at Sierra Restoration, can reverse the damage caused by a fire in a fast and timely manner.
Most restoration companies have emergency fire damage restoration services, and will arrive on the scene of the disaster quickly. Why is immediate service important for fire damage cleanup? After the local fire department and emergency response teams have put out the fire, it is critical to have a restoration team on hand to prevent any further damage from spreading throughout your home. Holes burned through walls and rooftops will leave the home open to additional damage from the outside elements. Standing water left from the extinguish process can cause irreversible water damage if not removed quickly. Damage to your home will continue to increase until these things are taken care of, so it is important to get immediate emergency restoration services.
After the restoration team has addressed these immediate problems, and stopped the further spread of damage, they will assess the extent of the damage to your property. This step is important when it comes to making a plan to reverse the damage as quickly as possible. By inspecting how far the smoke and soot has traveled through the home, and seeing how severe the damage is, the restoration team will be able to come up with a plan of action and give you an accurate quote for how long and how expensive the restoration process will be. Because safety is a huge concern when it comes to structures that have suffered from fire damage, it is extremely important that you do not enter the home until the professional cleanup company has inspected the property.
Following the inspection and assessment, immediate action begins. Again, the main priority of restoration teams is to mitigate damage and prevent its spread, so tarp and sealing services will begin. Any areas of the home that are exposed will be covered and sealed off. This step ensures that your home is safe and protected from other elements that could cause further damage. Once the home is secured, cleanup can begin.
Fire damage cleanup is a big process. Smoke and soot can penetrate walls, and travel throughout the entire home – even to areas that the fire did not affect. Cleanup begins with getting rid of smoke, dust, and soot from ceilings, walls, and other surfaces in the home. Items that are not too badly damaged will be cleaned using a variety of cleaning techniques to ensure that all ash and soot is safely removed. In this step they will also remove and eliminate the smoke odor that lingers after a fire. If water damage has also occurred, water removal and cleanup will also be performed. With the use of commercial grade equipment, all the moisture will be removed from the area, stopping any further damage that could come from water. Once cleanup has been taken care of, it is time for repairs and restoration.
The restoration step is the final step in the fire damage cleanup process, and returns your home or property to its pre-loss condition. Restoration involves repairing what can be repaired, and replacing what cannot be salvaged. This covers anything from carpets, to walls, to cabinets. The whole purpose of this entire process is to get your home looking as good as new so that your life can return to normal.
