Fire Damage

Few events in life can be as traumatizing and overwhelming as a fire, since they are always unexpected, can spread rapidly, and your home, possessions, much of your life can be gone up in smoke in a matter of minutes. Fire leaves no stone unturned, damaging walls, ceiling, flooring, furniture, clothes, electronics, and other items of value. Many homeowners are amazed at the level of destruction that is left behind in the wake of a fire, and looking at their home in the aftermath, they quite correctly wonder if things will ever be the same again.

24/7 Water Restoration provides fire damage restoration services that go beyond industry standard, incorporating the latest equipment and techniques designed to clean up the damage left by fire and restore the property to its original condition.

Fires can start in all kinds of ways, either from a candle left burning, grease in the kitchen, an electrical short, or even a gas leak. Unlike water damage which can slowly grow unnoticed for a period of days, weeks, or even months, once a fire has started it can and will spread rapidly, devouring everything in its path and causing massive damage to the building and its contents. Even worse, smoke may be carried through the building’s HVAC system to other areas that were not immediately affected by the fire, causing smoke damage and unpleasant, irritating odors that will require specialized treatment in order to clean up.

There is also the emotional element of a fire, a property owners are often shaken by the sight of their most expensive investment going up in flames, and the loss of valuables and heirlooms, as well as the possibility of injury or death to loved ones. It is for this reason that 24/7 Water Restoration exists, to be able to work toward getting your property back in its original state while you work on recuperating and recovering from the emotional toll that you have experienced. You can rest knowing that your home or business is in good hands and will be well cared for.

Fire damage needs to be dealt with as rapidly as possible in order to avoid further damage to the structure. Fire often opens gaping holes in roofs and walls, making the property vulnerable to damage from rain, snow, and ice. Fire may also have weakened structural supports, making the property unstable and prone to collapse. Smoke and soot may also create toxic fumes that can be extremely hazardous if inhaled.

There is also the matter of personal possessions that may be damaged by fire. We can inventory these items and help determine what can be restored and what should be thrown away. Some items may require specialized attention and treatment in order to be salvaged, and our technicians can provide the guidance and care needed to handle your most important valuables.

Fire damage restoration involves a number of specific steps, to be taken in a predetermined order, to allow for the effective and efficient return of your property to its pre loss condition:

  1. Remove all structural components that were damaged by the fire. These elements cannot simply be repaired as they have been severely weakened by the flames. Trying to patch an area back together may end up causing more harm than good.
  2. Evaluation of the structural framing and subfloor material, allowing a full inspection and evaluation of the subfloor area for damage that might not be readily apparent otherwise.
  3. Treat all wall framing with counteractants, since there are instances where framing and support structures may be salvaged. This also includes odor counteractants to reduce the effect of smoke and soot odor within the structure.
  4. Restoration of the electrical and HVAC systems. This will require proper inspection by a certified professional, and will go a long way towards eliminating harmful dust and char particles in the air that may cause scarring or other types of damage.

It is important that each step in the restoration process be completed correctly, since failure to do so, or the overlooking of an element, may only result in additional problems later on. Fire damage restoration is a dangerous procedure that should not be attempted by homeowners, but rather left to those with the education, training, and experience in the handling of all types of fire scenarios.
