    What Is Fire Damage Restoration?

    Fire Damage Restoration Service is a method best completed by professionals to restore your home to its condition before the fire. The fire damage restoration process includes property safety checks, assessments, debris removal, necessary demolition, and eventual restoration. These essential steps make up the entire procedure for the best results.

    Do’s and Don’ts After a Fire

    After a house fire, there are specific procedures you should follow. However, while there are some things you should do, there are also some things you should avoid. Below is a comprehensive list of post-fire fire damage restoration tips of dos and don’ts.

    • Call fire damage restoration contractors to schedule your fire damage restoration process.
    • Take pictures (when safe) of any damages for insurance claims.
    • Let fire servicers open windows and doors.
    • Throw away food, drink, and other items for consumption.

    Don’ts

    • Turn on any appliances, including stoves, washing machines, microwaves, electronics, etc.

    Our Fire Damage Restoration Process

    The fire damage restoration process is thorough to ensure your safety and the optimal home restoration. Our residential and commercial fire damage restoration company protects your home and business.

    Assessment

    First, after fire professionals confirm your space is safe, our team performs an assessment. This assessment includes criteria like how much smoke and soot there is, the extent of the structural damage, and any water damage. The goal of the evaluation is to have an estimate for our customers so you know not only the restoration costs but also the time frame to get your house or business back to previous conditions.

    Securing the Property

    Once the team completes your assessment, we secure the property. Generally, securing the property includes keeping your home or business closed off from outside elements. This way, your home is protected from inclement weather and further damage until the professionals at Attic Projects & Crawlspace Experts begin the debris removal process. We secure the property by putting boards, fences, and tarps covering open areas of the roof and space.

    Debris Removal

    Unfortunately, some items in your residence may have irreversible damage. If there are any items or belongings in this condition, our team removes them in this step. Next, we remove any dangerous debris inside and outside the home so the process may continue.

    In addition to the removal of debris, our team must remove smoke from your home. Complete remediation of smoke damage is harmful to one’s health. For these reasons, please leave it to the professionals.

    Demolition, Water Mitigation

    During this step, we demo any structural areas inside the home that require removal, like fire-damaged floors, walls, and windows. At this point, we also work to remove any excess water lingering in the space because it prevents mold growth. After the water removal is complete, a fire restoration contractor ensures the home is dry, clean of smoke damage and debris, and ready for the final part of the fire restoration process.

    Construction & Restoration

    Finally, the construction phase begins. In this last step, we work tirelessly to return your residence or business to its pre-fire conditions. During construction and restoration, you may expect to see the replacement of various items in the home, like the roof, electrical components, floors, fixtures, and appliances.

    Fire Damage Restoration Costs

    The average fire damage restoration costs range from $3,000 to $26,000. The price is a broad range for various reasons. Some of the factors that may affect the cost of your fire damage restoration include:

    • The extent of the fire.
    • The magnitude of smoke and structural damages.
    • Costs for loss of furniture and various household items (including appliances).
    • Damages to clothing, carpets, and floors.
    • Level of cleaning needed.
    • Construction costs for materials.
