What’s Involved in a Professional Fire Damage Cleanup?

March 2nd, 2018

Fire damage cleanup can be extremely devastating. Emergency responders are quick to act in order to put out the fire, but possibly leaving behind significant water damage. The initial destruction that is done only becomes magnified by lingering smoke and soot. The traumatic experience can leave individuals desperate for help. Certified restoration professionals can help restore a house or office building back to its original condition.

Fire damage cleanup is extremely hard for any homeowner. That’s why we recommended calling a professional fire damage cleanup company for the cleanup task.

Many homeowners in Rice Lake don’t understand how a professional fire damage cleanup differs from what they can do themselves.

For those homeowners, we’ll discuss the process of professional fire damage cleanup.

1. Fire Damage Evaluation

The first thing a professional fire damage cleanup company will do is evaluate the damage.

  • How much damage has been caused?
  • Is there smoke damage only or water damage as well?
  • How much cleanup is required?

The extent of damage varies so a professional fire damage cleanup company always evaluates the damage and then plans accordingly.

2. Isolating the Areas

The areas that are hazardous are then isolated to protect individuals from harm and prevent the damage from getting worse.

3. Water Extraction

The next thing a professional water damage cleanup company will do is dry all the water that came in the home from extinguishing the fire. Professional water damage cleanup companies provide emergency restoration services because the water can cause significant damage to a home if it not dried promptly.

4. Fire Cleanup

After the water has been completely extracted, the fire cleanup process begins. Professional fire damage cleanup companies eliminate soot and smoke from the home to protect from future damage. Generally, walls, furniture, ceilings and carpets get exposed to smoke and soot and it can be hard to clean them.

Professional fire damage cleanup companies have the tools to clean the soot off the walls, ceiling and other salvageable items. They completely eliminate the soot to minimize the damage to the integral structures of a home and other items.

5. Smoke Odor Removal

The smell of the smoke lingers in the home after the fire has been extinguished. Professional fire damage cleanup companies don’t allow the smell of the smoke to stay in your premises. They use high-tech equipment to eradicate the smoke smell and deodorize the premises to ensure that you breath in clean air after fire damage cleanup.

6. Reconstruction

Your Rice Lake home may have incurred significant damage from fire and require reconstruction to get back to its original state. A professional fire damage cleanup company will not only cleanup the home and remove odor after fire damage, they’ll also help reconstruct the home.
