Fire and water damage can happen suddenly for any number of reasons, from a small grease fire or a backed up toilet, to a home fire or flooding. If you find yourself the unfortunate victim of a fire or flood, call a professional restoration company as soon as possible. An experienced fire and water damage restoration expert will be able to not only clean up the mess left by a fire or flood, but he/she will also be able to restore your home to its former glory.
Here is a summary of the professional services you can expect from a fire restoration contractor:
Smoke and Soot Removal: Unless it’s professionally removed, smoke from a fire can linger for a very, very long time. A professional restoration company will also use a deodorizer to remove the powerful odor left by smoke and soot.
Structural Inspections: While it may look hopeless, you may be surprised to learn that a large portion of your building structure can be restored. This will save you lots of money compared to expensive demolition and re-building.
Damage to the Floor: The floor is often the first area to be damaged in a fire. A fire damage restoration contractor will be able to assess the situation and let you know if your floor is salvageable.
Here is a summary of the professional services you can expect from a water restoration contractor:
Removing Moisture: A professional water damage restoration expert will utilize several specialty machines – dehumidifiers, blowers, truck mounted and portable water extraction units, moisture meters, and hygrometers – to remove any standing water as well as any lingering moisture. Even a little residual water can lead to a lot of mildew or mold growth and structural damage/weakness.
Inspection: A water restoration company will be able to examine your home and tell you what materials are restorable and what will need to be replaced.
