Fire & Water - Cleanup & Restoration

Not all fires are the same!

4/13/2020 (Permalink)

Not all fires result in the same level of damage. Subsequently not all fire damages require the same type of restoration.

Any particular loss could involve a range of damages from minor to major.

We categorize the levels of fire damage to 3 different categories: By categorizing the type of loss, we can provide you an idea of the restoration services required to address your level of loss.

Minor Fire Damage. Smoke residues affect only certain rooms or areas. The amount of smoke residues is light to moderate. Restoration may involve dry cleaning and/or wet cleaning of ceilings, walls, floors, and contents.

Medium Fire Damage. The amount of smoke residues is moderate, and more materials require wet cleaning to remove residues. The number of areas requiring repainting and items requiring replacement increase. Floors may need to be refinished. Heat damage to drywall, cabinets, and contents requires more materials to be replaced. Contents might be cleaned at the jobsite. Smoke odors are noticeable, possibly requiring additional deodorization procedures after cleaning.

Major Fire Damage. Fire and heat damage is severe near the source of the fire. Structural framing and finishes may be charred, requiring structural repairs. Smoke residues are distributed through a large portion of the building, and smoke odors are strong and possibly pungent. Emergency services might be needed, such as boarding up the structure, establishing a source of electricity, winterizing the building in cold weather, and removing smoke-filled and charred debris. Restoration will most likely involve extensive cleaning of the structure and probably require restorers to pack and move out all salvageable contents for off-site cleaning. Multiple methods of deodorization are needed to remove smoke odors.
