Fire and Smoke Damage Restoration - FAQ
What Goes into Fire Restoration?
Professional fire damage restoration is a complex process that requires the expertise of trained professionals. The first step is to assess the extent of the damage and identify the areas that need to be restored. Once the scope of the work is determined, the next step is to clean up the affected area. This includes removing all charred debris and cleaning all surfaces to prevent the spread of soot and smoke.
Next, any damaged structure must be repaired or replaced. Finally, the area must be deodorized to remove any remaining smoke smells. Fire and smoke damage restoration is essential to restoring your home or business to its pre-fire condition.
What is Salvageable After a House Fire?
Although it may seem as though everything is lost after a house fire there are some items that may be salvageable. Metal objects such as jewelry and cookware often survive the flames and can be cleaned and reused. Wood furniture may also be salvageable if it has not been burned too badly.
In addition, clothing and other textile items can often be restored through professional cleaning. Finally, family photos and other sentimental items may be damaged by smoke and soot, but they can often be cleaned and restored by a professional. It is important to note that salvageable items need to be cleaned thoroughly as soot can lead to severe health risks.
