Smoke & Soot Cleanup
Soot is a byproduct of the combustion process. It's a dark, fine powder that can contain toxic chemicals that can cause respiratory problems if inhaled and skin irritation if it encounters the skin.
If your home or business has suffered damage from a fire and you’re thinking about hiring a restoration company, consider this: After your home or business has been cleaned up and restored, many of the items that were not damaged will need to be packed up and moved out by a professional.
The reasons why this is important are many. First, it’s best practice for safety reasons — if something isn’t properly packed up after cleaning, mold could grow on the surface of an item that was exposed to smoke damage during the cleaning process. Second, packing items can help speed up insurance claims because it allows you to submit photos showing all your property before beginning repairs. Thirdly (and most importantly), having professionals pack-out both parts of your claim helps ensure everything is documented correctly so as not to lose any coverage due to lack of evidence for what was damaged or lost during the incident itself or through subsequent activities surrounding repairs/cleanup efforts.
If there are any questions about whether or not an item needs packing services before being moved out by professionals after being cleaned up following fire damage at home or work, then please contact us today!
Content Cleaning & Restoration
After fire damage, there is often a large amount of residual soot and smoke inside the building. This soot can cause permanent damage to furniture, carpeting, drapes, and other household items if it is not removed quickly. This type of content cleaning is also known as “de-soiling” or “home restoration”. The goal of content cleaning after a fire is to restore your home or business back to its original condition for you to return safely and comfortably.
Odor Removal & Deodorization
Odor removal is a process that aims to eliminate malodors in the air. Odors can be caused by several things, such as fire damage and smoke damage. Smoke contains volatile organic compounds (VOCs), which are chemicals emitted into the air by burning products like furniture or carpeting. Once these VOCs are released into the air, they begin to settle onto items like walls, ceilings, and floors throughout your home—and they stick around for quite some time!
To remove odors from your home after it’s been damaged by fire or smoke, you need effective odor removal services that use specialized equipment to clean away smoke particles from every surface of your property. Deodorization is another type of odor removal service provided by professionals at our company; however, deodorization uses heat instead of chemicals for odor reduction purposes.
Back to Pre-Loss Condition
If you own a home business, the fire damage restoration process is likely to be more complicated than if you have a regular residence.
While your primary concern is to make sure your family and pets are safe, there are other concerns that can arise from a fire in your home. For example, if your business was damaged in the fire, then there may be damage to equipment or inventory as well as lost income due to disruption of normal operations. The first thing you'll want is for an insurance specialist on site who can quickly assess these types of damages and begin documenting them so that an adjuster can determine what's covered by insurance policies and what isn't—and how much it will cost for the repairs or replacement items.
