*Although each fire damage loss is unique and requires its own specific plan of action, the general process remains the same. Here is a brief overview of our fire and smoke damage restoration process:
Step 1: Emergency Contact
The restoration process first begins when you call and speak to a member of our team. Our loss coordinator will ask you a series of questions regarding the details of your fire event, allowing us to dispatch our technicians to your home quickly., ensuring they arrive with the proper equipment, materials and resources needed to begin the clean-up and restoration process immediately upon arrival.
Step 2: Inspection and Fire Damage Assessment
The more prepared we are for your unique situation, the better plan of action we can take. Once we arrive on-site, our team will carefully inspect your home and conduct testing to determine the extent of the fire, smoke and soot damage.
Step 3: Immediate Board-Up and Roof-Tarp Services
To ensure that your structure does not endure further damage, we will board-up any exterior, missing walls or windows and place tarps on your roof, if damaged.
Step 4: Water Removal and Drying
Oftentimes there will be water damage to a home from firefighting efforts. If there is water present, the water extraction and removal process will begin immediately. We will then set all the necessary equipment, such as air movers and dehumidifiers to complete the drying process.
