Fire and water restoration requires special skills and tools to restore a property. During the fire restoration process, our professionals identify not only the visible damage but also the hidden or potential issues that need to be addressed. This comprehensive assessment helps to minimize additional damage and save on the overall cost of the restoration.
When the fire department uses a fire hose to put out the flames, there is often water that seeps into walls, floors and ceilings. When this water is not removed quickly, it can cause extensive water damage and increase the risk of mold, mildew and other pathogens. Our technicians are trained to properly remove and dry waterlogged items, so that these pathogens do not have a chance to thrive in a moist environment.
If left unresolved, water damage can lead to structural damage and even more severe problems like mold growth that can compromise the integrity of a building and pose health risks for occupants. Mold spores can start to grow in as little as 24 hours, which can further eat away at building materials and exacerbate existing damage.
During the fire restoration process, our pros take out what cannot be saved, including damaged drywall down to the studs and carpeting down to the pad. They may also remove ceiling materials such as sags and stains that are caused by water leaks, soot or both. This is normally done before the drying out of a property starts, as it can speed up the overall process. fire and water restoration
