It starts with an inspection from a trained fire damage specialist. Damage from a fire can come from many sources: smoke, heat, the actual fire itself, and water and chemicals used to put the fire out. A trained professional can identify each source of damage and determine how far the damage has spread, as well as anticipating the cost of possible repairs. This should include an accurate assessment of what damaged components can be cleaned and repaired, and what components need to be completely replaced.

From there, the fire restoration begins in earnest. The service technician’s move through the house step by step to repair or restore what was lost. Any material that can’t be repaired needs to be completely removed while keeping any salvageable parts of the house intact.  Soot and smoke residue needs to be cleaned up quickly before the soot becomes too difficult to remove. The servicemen must also remove the smoky smell form the house, which means identifying any residue causing the odor and removing it promptly. Waterlogged components such as carpet need to be cleaned up and dried before bacteria sets in. Once these things are covered, the restoration professional can rebuild removed components or repair existing ones, restoring your home to its former status.

Suffering from a fire is a terrible event, and when it happens, it helps to have a knowledgeable specialist on your side.
