The process of fire damage restoration by professionals

Confirm that the property is safe to enter.

The first step for remediation professionals is to ensure that the building is stabilized and safe to enter. The first inspection of the property comes from outside the building and then they’ll check for structural integrity.

Minimize damage

Even if the fire has extinguished, smoke and soot can still be a problem and cause damage. Should be aware and careful of soot staining, mould, rust, and the air quality in the home. Depending on the surface material soot staining usually can completely be removed, but there are other situations where it can leave a permanent stain.

Professionals will make sure to look for all materials and give them a proper clean to reduce damage. Also, mould and mildew become a problem because of the fire extinguished procedure. If water damage is suspected, the removal process should begin as soon as possible to prevent more damage.

Another major problem is air quality, and it should be the focus of every professional while remediation.  Cleaning the smoke requires using air scrubbing and air mover to clean the air.

These kinds of products should be used on every surface that has been absorbed by the smoke.

Remove soot and debris

The longer the soot remains on a surface, the more damage it can cause. That’s why it’s recommended to remove soot and debris before beginning the restoration process.

Removing them will also be helpful to improve air quality.

Remove too damaged items

Any personal item that is highly damaged should be removed from the home. Take caution in electrical machines or other objects because they may still be unplugged. A fire damage restoration professional can clean contaminated items and make them ready for re-entering the home once it’s finished.

Eliminate excess water

Since the water can soak into flooring or walls, professionals should clean up as soon as possible any water problem or wet surfaces.

Deodorizing, deep cleaning, and removing stains

This is the part where prioritized items come first. It is important to consider that items that are highly damaged should be replaced, and the rest deep cleaned. Professional cleaning comes with specific products depending on the product, but they always consider the type of material and the time that it was penetrated by smoke.

Usually, carpets and other fabrics are the most easily ruined. In some cases, they can be washed and cleaned, but you can tell with a quick look if it is too damaged or it can be restored.
