Not All Fire Damage is the Same
In the aftermath of a fire or soot disaster, time is of the essence. That is why our technicians are on call to be available anytime, day or night, for fire damage restoration. First and foremost, smoke and soot present a health hazard. Smoke contains a mixture of gases and particulates - just think about the many different structural materials and contents - from framing studs, to drywall, wool, nylon, polyester, plastics, etc. All of these materials produce byproducts, many of which are carcinogenic.
Not only does soot have a strong odor, but it can continue to cause further damage after the fire has been extinguished if not addressed immediately. Protecting your possessions is an integral part of the process.
Fire damage restoration frequently involves both soot restoration and water damage restoration as a result of firefighting efforts. A trained restoration specialist will identify the areas to mitigate to prevent additional damage and future mold growth.
Common Fire Damage Causes:
- Cooking accident
- Furnace puff backs
- Electrical malfunction
Don't Try to Clean it Yourself!
The residue left behind after a fire is a biohazard. If not taken care of thoroughly and correctly, it can cause health problems. You don't want to attempt to clean up your property after a fire because you may cause even more damage. The experts have the right training and tools to ensure proper restoration.
A fire is a scary event, but Clean Rite is here to help you get back to normal as fast as possible. You can rely on our expert team to restore your home and work with your insurance company through every step of the process.
4 Steps in the Fire Restoration Process:
Step 1: Our project manager will review the affected area and ensure that any possible dangers have been eliminated. After a fire, there can be dangerous cleaning conditions such as electrified standing water, compromised structural elements, or hazardous contamination. Our priority is the safety of your family and our team.
Step 2: Once the area is made safe from structural hazards, our technicians will protect any areas, such as the roof, walls, or windows, that are open to the elements, and follow our water damage restoration process if water was used to put out the fire.
Step 3: We use commercial HEPA air scrubbers for odor removal. Air scrubbers will be used throughout the soot damage cleanup and restoration process to ensure that any soot particles that are released into the air during cleaning will be captured. Once the air filtration is in place, we will begin identifying which items will be moved off-site for cleaning and which items we will clean on-premises.
Step 4: While your possessions are being professionally cleaned, we will begin cleaning or removing any soot damaged materials in the affected area. Once your property is restored to its original condition, it's time to move your possessions back in!
