The cleanup process includes the removal of any charred contents that may seal in smoke such as insulation and burned wood. Carpets and floor coverings may need removed, and the framing of the house and subfloors will need a safety inspection. These areas should also be treated for smoke odors and then sealed to keep any leftover odors from leaking back into the house.
You also need to consider the water damage from putting out the fire, and the drying process. Have a ServiceMaster Restore® professional determine the extent of any water damage and bring in the equipment to dry the house out before mold starts to grow.
The last part of the fire damage restoration is controlling any odors. Odors due to smoke and fire will need cleaned out. ServiceMaster Restore® professionals are trained to follow the smoke trail to find the source of the odor and eliminate it.
Fire & Smoke
After all the commotion has died down after a fire, you will be likely left with a huge mess to clean up. There are several different types of fire damage that can occur during and even after a fire, including burned items, smoke and soot damage, and water damage. It is also important to note that not all fire damage is the same. Different materials inside a home will burn differently and because of that, they need different cleaning process.
After The Disaster
In the aftermath of a fire, it is important to begin working with a professional. The fire restoration process is a specialized one that needs an experience person with the right training and tools to do it properly.
The residue left behind after a fire is a biohazard and can cause health problems if it is not taken care of correctly and thoroughly. You do not want to attempt to clean up your home on your own after a fire or you may cause more damage.
Immediately after a fire, you should call your insurance company and ServiceMaster Restore®. It is important that we assess:
- Additional Damage from Smoke, Water, & Other Factors
- Damage To Find Out The Costs For The Fire Restoration
Once the amount of damage is determined our team will come up with an estimate for the cleaning and restoration.
