Mitigating Fire Damage

6/26/2023 (Permalink)

The aftermath of a fire is a stressful situation and may leave a homeowner uncertain about how to mitigate a situation that complex. The first step during the mitigation process is to ensure the safety of the homeowners and restoration professionals. Our team will go over any potential hazards that are present along with securing the property. This may involve boarding up windows and disconnecting utilities to prevent further damage or accidents.

When the property is determined to be safe, our team will conduct a comprehensive assessment of the fire damage. Restoration professionals will document the extent of the damage, both visible and hidden, including structural, personal belongings, and areas affected by smoke and soot. Documentation is a crucial step that needs to be done for insurance purposes and helps guide the restoration process.

When a fire is extinguished, means water was most likely used to put it out. This means water damage can be present on the site of a fire loss. Water extraction and drying are critical to preventing further damage and mitigating the risk of mold growth. We will use special equipment to remove standing water along with dehumidifiers to control any moisture within the air. By doing this on the property, it allows us to lay the foundation for effective restoration.

After the water damage is dealt with our team can begin to work on the areas of the property that were affected by soot and smoke. The soot and smoke can permeate every surface, leaving behind stubborn stains and pungent odors. Our mitigation process includes the cleaning and removal of any smoke/soot residue from the walls, ceilings, floors, and any personal belongings that can be salvaged. We will utilize special cleaning agents combined with our experienced technicians to restore your home to its preloss condition.

Fire loss mitigation is a comprehensive process that involves assessment, safety measures, water extraction, drying, soot removal, smoke removal, content cleaning, and final touches in order to put your property on track to being fully restored.
