Our dedicated team of professionals have extensive experience in the field of smoke and fire damage restoration, and we handle jobs of all sizes from small kitchen fires to entire home reconstructions.
Restoration methods following fire or smoke damage vary based on the specifics of the blaze. In the case of smoke damage, the primary issue becomes smoke and odor control. In these cases, we apply ozone to control the smoke odor, and continue to work until the smoke smell is completely gone. For homes that have been directly affected by a fire, the restoration process tends to be much more intricate. In homes where severe damage, such as loss of windows and walls, has occurred, we offer board-up services as one of the first steps. Our team will come into the home, assess the damage, and begin by boarding up any missing walls or windows to protect the security of a home after a fire. Damaged roofs can be covered with tarps. If sprinklers were deployed during the blaze, our flood restoration experts will be on site to commence structural drying.
Rebuilding and the Restoration Process
Once the structure is secure and dry, we can work with you on a plan for rebuilding the damage. Whether you simply need a wall replaced, or the entire home must be gutted and rebuilt, our team of experts can work with both you and your insurance company to come up with a plan that fits your needs. Our restoration methods following a fire include structural soda blasting, which is a way of removing soot and ash from the home. Once the salvageable structure is dry and clean, we can begin to rebuild any lost areas of the home. If you’ve been thinking about a kitchen remodel, now would probably be the time!
