Fire & Smoke Damage
Inspection of damage caused by a fire is vital as exposure to high temperatures cause different changes in materials, appliances and can impact the structural integrity of a building. In a detailed evaluation, our technicians find the source of the fire, and test materials that may have been damaged by the heat produced. These tests allow us to find out whether materials have hardened or softened after a fire. We check whether appliances and rooms have to be repaired, or if they are safe to use after the removal of fire remnants.
After you have received permission from the fire department to enter your home or business, ventilating the space is the first step you can take to remove smoke. Calling us at this stage allows our adjusters to accurately assess damage and create insurance reports. Smoke removal by our technicians is done using the latest cleaning products and techniques. The efficient removal process ensures that damage resulting from smoke entering porous substances, such as wood, is kept to a minimum.
Removal of fire remnants
The first task that our technicians do in the aftermath of a fire is drying out the space using the latest equipment and removing remnants. Mold starts growing within 48 hours, so we implement an effective dry out process to stop its growth. When water hoses and sprinkler systems are used to fight a fire, the drying out process is vital. Our experts ensure that any loss is minimized. Removal of remnants such as soot, damaged floors, furniture and appliances also helps in identifying and dealing with structural problems.
Odor Control/Ozone Treatments
The smell of smoke never really goes away and can be quite an unpleasant experience. We sometimes use Ozone machines which generate O3, which adds an extra molecule to the oxygen environment in your space and the resulting reaction cleans out the residual odor you get from fire and smoke. Residents and pets cannot be permitted back until our experts deem it safe to return. There are different methods of odor control available and our advisors can suggest the best possible solution once they visit your premises.
