The Importance of Acting Quickly
If your property has a fire, the next 24 to 48 hours are crucial, and they’re the difference between recovery and complete loss. As fires are usually put out with chemicals and water, this can combine with the soot and cause further damage to your property. However, a quick response cleaning corp can execute a strategy to recover your property.
Toxic smoke leaves behind a strong odor, and if you leave this smell to settle, it will be near impossible to completely neutralize the property and restore the air quality.
Working with us means you have the best opportunity to return to life before the fire. Our team performs a range of services and takes a tactile approach to get your property back to pre-loss condition.

Fire Damage Classes
When there’s a fire in your residential or commercial property, there will be smoke damage, but the extent of this damage depends on numerous factors. We use a fire damage class system to identify the severity of your fire and the steps we need to take to recover your building – and personal property.
When a fire occurs from fabric, wood, rubber, or other flammable materials, this often results in a relatively minor fire.
Class B fire damage is when a fire begins from flammable liquids or solid materials that liquify when heated. Some examples of class B materials include petrol, wax, paint, plastics, and grease.
More severe than Class A and B fire damage, these blazes occur from flammable gasses. Common gas types include coal, hydrogen, butane, and propane.
Fuel metals, including sodium, magnesium, and potassium, cause these fires. Class D blazes can be pretty severe.
When Class E damage occurs, it’s often a combination of Class A and B fires, but there’s also the added risk of electrical elements. This means that fighting these fires and restoring a property afterward is more complicated.
Class F fires are often more dangerous than Class B fires because they involve fats and oils. One of the most common fire types usually occurs when someone is cooking and can be very difficult to control the blaze.

The process in more detail…
The process will assess whether any restoration work is needed, what kind of restoration is required, and what the cause of the fire was. The team needs to take an inventory of all items in the building that were damaged by smoke, water, or other hazards caused by the fire so they can be restored or replaced properly.
File the Insurance Claim
After the fire department leaves, it is important that you file your insurance claim as soon as possible. This needs to be done quickly in order to prevent further damage or loss of property in their care. You will need to submit an inventory list detailing all damaged and undamaged items.
Drying out the Water and Chemicals used in Firefighting
The fire restoration process starts with removing as much standing water as possible from the affected areas. This is done by using pumps, air movers and dehumidifiers to extract the moisture left during extinguishing efforts.
After the area has dried, the next step is to remove all of the debris left by the fire. Depending on how severe it was, this could include anything from ashes and charred wood to melted plastics or metals.
The area affected by the smoke will be cleaned to remove all traces of odors and soot from things such as carpet, drapes, upholstery, and even ceiling tiles. Specialists have to determine if there are any sections that need replacement or whether they can be restored to their original condition.
If the fire and smoke has damaged any structural components of the home, they will be restored to their original condition. This includes things such as drywall, insulation, roofing materials, and other specialty items
Once the structural restoration has been completed, contents that may have undergone fire damage will be restored or replaced. This includes everything from furniture to dishes to clothing or anything else that was in the home or at the business.
