Apart from the threat of physical harm, fire accidents also damage your property. Smoke and soot are the major culprits when it comes to property damage. So, what happens when you experience fire damage—do you buy a new home, or do you move out? These alternatives are costly and unnecessary. A professional fire damage restoration company can make your home as good as new.

What Happens After a Fire Accident?

A lot of smoke and soot is produced from the items in your house that burn up. As smoke and soot linger in the air, they are deposited on various surfaces in your home. Walls, carpets, appliances, and ceilings begin to yellow and absorb odor. With prolonged exposure to these elements, it becomes harder to remove them.

Handling the aftermath of fire damage might seem a simple task to you, but it is a lot more involved than you think. Hiring a professional will help ensure quick and efficient restoration.

What Does Fire Damage Restoration Involve?

The focus of a fire damage restoration company is to take your home back to its original state. They take a series of steps guaranteed to leave your home free from any smoke damage or soot. Here are the steps:

Post-damage Inspection

The specialist inspects the structure to determine the extent of damage. Your premises are checked for smoke damage and any structural damage. The aim of inspection is to understand the extent of the damage and determine the proper cleaning method.

Protection of Unaffected Areas

There may be items in your home that were not touched by the fire. The specialist separates the items that can be salvaged and covers them to prevent further losses.

The Restoration Process

It’s up to the specialist to determine the type of restoration to use in your home. The specialist then removes any damaged materials and debris that resulted from the fire. After removal, extensively damaged structural elements are replaced.

During the fire incident, firefighters use a lot of water to put out the fire. The specialist performs water extraction to remove any excess moisture. Afterwards, the specialist removes soot and ash and performs any remaining, necessary steps for successful restoration. The process culminates in a new paint job.
