What is Fire Damage and Fire Damage Restoration?

Fire and Smoke Damage

Fire and smoke damage is the physical destruction of property caused by direct or indirect exposure to fire. Three things happen when your property is directly exposed to fire:

Minor damage from fire, soot, or smoke

Small to large areas of the property suffering immediate damage

The majority of the property burning to the ground

Fire can start from many things, with the leading causes being electrical, candles, space heaters, smoking, boilers, and oven/stoves.

A fire damage restoration company will assess the damage and decide on the best way to fix things. If the fire only affected parts of the property, the fire damage restoration company can provide complete cleaning & renovation services to get the building back to safe, livable conditions. In terms of your valuables, a fire restoration company would need to evaluate each item to determine if the items are salvageable.

Besides fire damage to your property, smoke and soot from the fire can stain your walls, carpets, and other surfaces in your home. But this isn’t all; you’ll also notice a distinctive odor throughout your home. You need to call in a fire damage restoration company in time to help you clean the soot and smoke from porous materials and remove the odor.

Fire Damage Restoration

Fire damage restoration is the act of remediating any property damage caused by fire and getting it back to its pre-fire state. With that, the fire restoration company should begin as soon as safely possible after the fire is put out.

When fire damages your property, you need to call our fire damage restoration service within 24–48 hours for emergency response. These are the “golden hours of recovery,” and it’s the best time for the fire restoration to recover the property as much as possible. The longer you allow the water and smoke damage to sit, the more damage it will cause.

It’s risky to take on fire damage restoration without professionals. If you inhale the soot and smoke trapped in your surfaces, it can potentially negatively affect your health and cause complications for you and your loved ones.

A good fire damage restoration company will immediately mitigate the fire damage by providing fire & smoke damage restoration and fire damage cleanup. The fire damage company will prioritize damage that could lead to further damage. If your property is affected by soot and smoke damage, the restoration company will decontaminate that first. Then, it will go ahead with deodorizing, deep cleaning, and smoke damage cleaning for the building.

How Our Fire Restoration Services Work

Our fire restoration process depends on what type of property you have, how severe the damage is, and the amount of time since the fire happened.

1. Emergency Services

Every second is crucial when it comes to dealing with fire damage. As soon as we arrive at your property, we’ll provide emergency services to prevent the damage. These services include using high power extraction equipment to extract moisture from the damaged areas to prevent mold growth, identifying the type of fire, and assessing the damage to the property.

2. File a Claim

Next, you’ll file a claim with the insurance company and set up a physical inspection meeting with the insurance adjuster and us to inspect the property and assess the damage.

3. Dry the Property

Typically, the property will be wet or flooded due to the amount of water the fire department used to quench the fire. If this isn’t well taken care of, it can cause mold growth leading to structural damage and health conditions. We prevent this with air filtration devices and drying equipment.

4. Smoke Cleaning

Once the property is 100% dry, we’ll clean up any soot and smoke on your surfaces, including tiles, walls, ceilings, carpets, and slabs. We’ll also get rid of the toxic smoke odor that can affect your family’s health.

5. Rebuild

After performing our fire damage restoration services, you can focus on rebuilding your home and getting it back to habitable conditions.

How Our Fire Damage Repair & Restoration Services Can Help

We know how devastating fires can be, to both your home, health and daily life. A reputable restoration company can help to minimize the impact the fire has on your home, by doing everything to restore it.

Using our fire restoration services means you can get back to everyday life quickly.

1. Confirm Stability and Safety

The first thing that needs to be done is to confirm that the property is safe to enter. Here, you should inspect the property for possible structural damage caused by the fire. You can ask the fire or building department to take a second look to ensure the property is safe, but our team will do a full inspection.

2. Reduce Further Damage

The job of a fire damage restoration company is to prevent further property damage. We’ll start with soot removal and cleaning smoke off the different items and materials that have absorbed smoke.

Next, our specialists will look for any signs of moisture and mold, then start drying out the property. We’ll also need to deodorize the air using air scrubbers.

Speed is everything, and our specialists are skilled at providing speedy, yet effective restoration services. We will do our best to immediately perform our fire damage restoration services to increase the chance of complete property restoration.

3. Discard Debris and Soot

Soot and debris can affect the fire damage restoration process, so it’s best to get rid of all of it first. The longer the soot stays on a surface, the quicker it will begin to etch metal and glass.

Our fire damage restoration experts use a specialized Hepa Vacuum Cleaner and Hepa Air Filtration Device to clear up the soot. They also need to dry sponge and wipe all the surfaces.

4. Remove Personal Possessions

Our fire damage restoration team will remove personal possessions from within the home. Some items may be beyond salvage point, so our fire damage professionals will carefully inventory them and take them off the premises until the restoration work is complete.

If your items aren’t severely damaged, they’ll clean them up and set them aside for when the home is back to its pre-fire state.

5. Cleaning

The cleanup process first starts by clearing out the soot and smoke from the house. The fire remediation team has to do a deep clean, which involves sanding, cleaning, disinfecting and deodorising your materials to remove all the traces of smoke and smoke odour. After doing this, they’ll drain the excess water and dry all moisture to prevent mold growth.

6. Repairing

Our property experts will salvage as much building materials as possible. If they don’t need to be replaced they will be restored instead.

The wooden beams, studs and joists often retain smoke and water damage therefore they need to be sanded down, then dried. Then they can be encapsulated with a special fire damage encapsulant paint. The purpose of this process is to keep any smoke odor from permeating.

7. Renovations

Once the restoration team has completed all the repairs and cleaning, property renovation can start. This is the point where the experts work to get the property back to livable conditions. The restoration company may need to reconstruct parts of the building that suffered extensive fire damage and continue renovating the property.

A fire damage restoration company remediates different types of fire damage to salvage your property, prevent further damage and get the property back to its original state. They will also assess the damage, clean up soot and smoke, dry out the property to prevent mold growth, and repair damaged parts of your home to get it back to its pre-fire condition.

Fire damage restoration can take a few days to a couple of months, depending on the type of fire, the extent of damage, type of property, and when the damage happened. The fire damage restoration company will assess the damage and give you a timeframe for how long the process would take.

Although there’s no hard and fast rule for this, it’s best to move out of your home during fire damage restoration. Staying in the property at this time can expose you to different health hazards like soot, odors, mold, and smoke.

To mitigate fire damage, the fire damage restoration experts will remove all soot and debris from the property. Then they will get rid of the excess water and dry out any moisture to prevent mold growth. Finally, they’ll deep clean and restore the home or business.

Most home insurance policies will cover restoration costs for damage caused by smoke, ash, soot, and flame. This means the insurance policy will pay for the cleaning, repairing, and replacing of any items damaged by exposure to smoke and soot.  

It is recommended to check your insurance policy to determine what it covers and how much coverage you have.

No. Fire damage restoration should only be done by professionals who have expert knowledge on fire restoration. Your home insurance policy should cover the cost of hiring professional restoration service providers to get your home back to its original state.

    Within 2 hours of our basement flooding, iFlooded was there to survey the damage. Within 24 hours they had removed all of our contents and began the remediation process. They worked with our insurance company to ensure that all of our damage and remediation was covered. iFlooded was responsive throughout the process and helped to limit our damage so we could quickly begin the restoration process. Thanks iFlooded.

    We had a totally flooded basement. The company responded quickly, removed all the water, the waste, cut off the sheetrock at 2 and a half inches from the floor, left a dozen high-powered fans in place and completely dried the floor. They came back a few days later to remove their equipment. Great, thorough job.
