Your Local Fire Restoration Company
Fire causes great losses, but even greater damage may be caused by secondary causes: water damage due to firefighters efforts, rain flooding the premises through the damaged roof, smoke and soot damage the property in parts of the building that were not even affected by the fire. Immediate fire damage restoration is necessary for the best possible recovery from an unfortunate event.
Erie Environmental provides fire damage restoration services in Sandusky OH 24/7. We use professional equipment and our experience to clean up all smoke and soot and restore the fire-damaged building to the previous conditions.
Fire Damage Restoration Process
Fire Damage Inspection
The first step in the fire damage cleanup process is contacting local remediation professionals. They will begin the fire damage restoration process with an inspection as soon as the fire marshal confirms that the property is safe to enter.
Fire damage experts will inspect the affected premises to assess the extent of damage and determine the best course of action. Professionals have to inspect the home for structural hazards, damage to walls and roof, and the presence of water damage.
Mitigation of Further Damage
It is vital to take steps that will prevent secondary damage after the fire. If water damage is present, immediate water removal is needed to stop mold growth. If walls or the roof are damaged by fire, restoration experts should address the issue by boarding up and tarping the holes to prevent further damage by wind and rain.
To minimize the spreading of smoke, the affected area is contained. Any possessions that are too damaged to restore are removed and disposed of.
Soot and Smoke Cleaning
Fire restoration professionals then use suitable cleaning procedures to clean debris and soot from the surfaces: ceilings, walls, flooring, tiles, furniture and other personal possessions are restored to pre-fire condition.
Air scrubbers are used to remove smoke from the air and improve air quality.
Fire Smoke Odor Removal
Fires tend to leave pervasive odors that remain in the affected building for years if not addressed properly. Erie Environmental fire restoration crew will use specialized equipment to fully eliminate the foul smoke odors.
Fire Damage Repairs
The last stage in fire damage cleanup is fire damage repairs. Erire Environmental handles repairs for any type of project, including painting, drywall, replacement of carpets, cabinets, and finishing with major reconstruction. We reinstall the flooring, lay tiles, repair roofs and ceilings, restore wooden and upholstered furniture, and much more.
