Home with fire damage

The Fire Damage Restoration Process

Home fires can be psychologically and emotionally difficult. Our homes are more than the places we live. They are full of our memories, our belongings, and they provide a sense of safety and security. Because fires can weigh heavily on the people affected, Restoration Partners will always display professionalism and sensitivity during this difficult time without sacrificing the quality of the job. When a house fire occurs, our restoration professionals will fully address the disaster from beginning to end. There are critical elements to ensure the remediation has been done completely in the fire damage restoration process.

These steps outline the approach that our fire and smoke professionals take to mitigate fire damage properly.

1. Initial Assessment

The first step of fire damage restoration is to assess the damage and develop a plan of action. Our professional fire damage restoration team will inspect your property, assess the damage, and determine what needs to be done to restore your property to its original condition. Some questions that our professionals may ask you to better access the damage are:

  • When did the fire first start?
  • Do you know the cause of the fire?
  • Did the fire spread to several areas of the house?
  • Is there fallout and soot in your home?
  • Has someone tried to clean up some of the damage already?

2. Cleanup and Removal of Debris

Once the initial assessment is complete, our fire damage restoration team will begin the process of cleaning up and removing debris from the affected area. This includes the removal of smoke and soot, as well as any damaged furniture or other items that are not salvageable. All items should be removed from the property and placed in a secure area for further inspection or disposal. Once the damaged items have been removed, the restoration process can begin. This includes cleaning and sanitizing the affected area. Sometimes a fire can cause damage to the plumbing leading to water damage as well. We have experts across all of the restoration fields and are prepared to address any other needs caused by the fire.

3. Restoration and Repair

Finally, any structural repairs that need to be done must be completed. This may include replacing broken windows, repairing damaged walls, and replacing any destroyed items. Once all repairs have been made, the home must be inspected to ensure that it is safe and up to code. This final step of the fire damage restoration process marks the end of the repair step and the start of the recovery process.

Fire damage restoration is an important process for any property owner or business that has been affected by a fire. Not only does the process help to restore the property to its pre-fire condition, but it can also help to prevent further damage and losses. All of these steps are vital and need to be completed in order to get the property back to its original condition.
