Whether at home or at work, this can be one of the most traumatic and frightening experiences for victims caught or affected by a fire. The speed and severity of a fire can make you feel really vulnerable and can cause massive damage and property damage.
The damage done by fires does not end when the flames are extinguished. Businesses may find themselves in financial struggles and become unable to trade. Rapid fire damage restoration can be the key to reducing material and moral losses caused by a fire.
What is Fire Damage Restoration?
The first 24 to 48 hours after fire damage are known as the “golden hours” of healing. An effective emergency response that quickly stabilizes the facility ensures that as many structures as possible are saved. Acidic soot and smoke damage, often produced in fires, accelerates the deterioration and corrosion of building components and vital assets. To complicate the problem, fires are often extinguished with dry chemicals or water. In addition, the remaining toxic smoke smell must be neutralized and deodorized.
The fire damage restoration process includes reducing damage, cleaning up smoke damage, and providing water restoration as soon as possible after damage first occurs. Beyond visible structural damage, contents within the structure should be evaluated for recovery based on a number of factors, including:
- Replacement Cost vs. Restoration Cost
- Effect of Smoke and Heat
- Loss of Use
- Loss of Value
- Decreased Life Expectancy
- Sentimental Value
