Fire Damage Restoration Tips

Fire damage restoration tips are as follows:

  • Repair Smoke Damage to Walls—with fires there is a degree of smoke damage to your walls, wall paper, and paint. If the damage is minor, you can scrub it clean with detergents and bleach.
  • Eliminate Mold and Mildew—since water is used to extinguish a fire, mold and mildew can occur. We highly recommend our professionals to handle mold and mildew, because it can cause serious health problems, contaminate furniture, carpets, clothing, mattresses, walls, and vents. Immediately air out every room and clean out all vents and filters.
  • Repair Flooring and Carpet—in most cases, it’s recommended that you pull up any carpets that have water damage and replace them. 
  • Clean Clothing—ensure that you do not smear the greasy soot into the clothing or just throw the smoky clothes into the wash.

What are the Common Types of Fires that can occur?

By seeing your home and precious possessions consumed by fire can be one of the most severe losses that a homeowner can experience. The common types of fires that can occur are as follows:

  • Protein Fire—food from the oven or stove has burned, which leaves strong burnt food odors and smoke residue on contents and surfaces.
  • Complex Fire—multiple natural and synthetic items inside your home have burned causing black smoke residue on contents and surfaces and synthetic smoke odors. Here, emergency corrosion mitigation is needed to protect at-risk surfaces.
  • Natural Fire—trees, shrubs and bushes have burned and smoke has penetrated the structure from outside, so smoke residue and odor are present.
  • Furnace Malfunction—heating appliances, such as oil-fired furnaces have malfunctioned and caused smoke to be distributed throughout the property.

What is Fire Mitigation?

Fire mitigation is a series of steps that you can take to reduce the risk of a wildfire consuming your property. It includes assessing the risks around your property, recognizing the wildfire dangers and your responsibility in mitigating them, thereby creating a defensible space. It involves how and where you store materials around your property, and also consider the health of your trees to determine the need for trimming or removal.
