How Smoke & Fire Damage Restoration Works

Everyone understands the destruction a fire can do, but many do not realize that time is of the essence when it comes to restoration and cleanup.

Much of the material found in furniture, flooring, and appliances is synthetic. When burned, synthetics create a variety of complex corrosive chemical reactions that will turn these items from cleanable to non-salvageable in a matter of days. This is why it’s crucial to act quickly after a fire and hire a fire damage restoration service like Speed Clean. Here are the steps we follow to get the job done:

We use the latest equipment and supplies in our fire and smoke restoration process:

  • 1

    Our specialists will make a thorough visual assessment and inspection of the damaged property, including the presence of odor, soot, ash and other fire elements.

  • 2

    We will make an estimate for your fire damage restoration and upon approval, deploy our service technicians and cleaning specialists.

  • 3
    All affected building materials will be removed and contents will either be discarded or cleaned upon owner approval. Although soot and smoke odors permeate through porous surfaces and are difficult to get rid of, we understand what needs to be done to effectively clean and salvage belongings.
  • 4

    Any associated water damage will be addressed through our water restoration services, while we thoroughly clean and deodorize all affected areas.

Once the assessment and inspection has been done, we will have already discussed repairs with your insurance adjuster and will have a plan to rebuild and/or replace to restore your property to its pre-fire condition.

Carpet Cleaning FAQs

While it’s tempting to handle fire and smoke damage cleanup on your own, it’s highly recommended to seek professional help. Fire damage restoration requires specialized knowledge, equipment, and techniques to ensure proper cleaning and restoration. Professionals have the expertise to identify hidden damage, handle hazardous materials, and prevent further harm. DIY cleaning attempts may not fully remove all traces of smoke and soot, leading to long-term issues such as persistent odors and health risks.

The duration of fire damage restoration depends on the extent of the damage and the size of the property. Minor fire damage may be addressed within a few days, while more significant incidents can take weeks or even months to fully restore. Professionals will assess the damage, create a customized restoration plan, and provide an estimated timeline based on the specific circumstances.

Professional fire damage restoration services include the evaluation and restoration of your personal belongings and contents. Skilled technicians will assess the condition of items and determine which can be salvaged. They employ specialized techniques such as content cleaning, deodorization, and restoration to restore as many items as possible. However, certain items severely damaged by fire may need to be discarded for safety reasons.

Smoke odors can be pervasive and challenging to eliminate completely without professional assistance. Fire damage restoration experts use advanced techniques like thermal fogging, ozone treatment, and air scrubbing to neutralize and eliminate smoke odors. These methods effectively target and remove odor-causing particles from the air and surfaces, significantly improving indoor air quality and eliminating unpleasant smells.

In most cases, fire and smoke damage restoration services are covered by homeowners’ insurance policies. It’s important to contact your insurance company as soon as possible after the incident to report the damage and initiate the claims process. Insurance adjusters will assess the damage, and if covered, the restoration company can work directly with the insurance provider to coordinate the necessary services and documentation.

Exposure to fire and smoke damage can have both immediate and long-term health effects. In addition to the potential for respiratory issues, smoke contains harmful chemicals and particles that can pose health risks. Lingering smoke odors may also trigger allergies or respiratory sensitivities. Prompt and thorough fire damage restoration helps eliminate these risks, ensuring a safe and healthy environment for occupants.
