House Fire Clean Up for Amherst Fire Damaged Homes 

Cleaning up after house fires can be a large undertaking, primarily because no two loss incidents are the same. As quickly as structure fires can develop and spread, we must stay prepared to respond immediately when extinguishment completes and the property is cleared for entry. We can begin vital mitigation and emergency services as soon as possible, which allows for the removal of standing water after extinguishment and cleaning the environment with HEPA air filtration devices like air scrubbers and hydroxyl generators. 

Are Repairs Needed After Smoke Damage in Amherst Homes?

Smoke damage can have a severe effect on building materials and content within a house. Smoke and soot particles can come to rest on surfaces and degrade the finish of underlying materials. These residues are often acidic in nature, allowing for staining and marring of the material, requiring controlled demolition to resolve. Our general contractor license can enable us to remove these damaged elements and reinstall them “Like it never even happened.”

Our Fire Restoration Process

Every fire damage event is a little different and requires a unique solution, but the general process stays the same. The steps listed below illustrate our process for the “typical” fire damage emergency.

Step 1: Emergency Contact

We are available 24 hours, 7 days a week. When you call, one of our representatives will ask a series of questions about the fire damage to your home or business. This information helps us respond immediately with all the needed equipment and resources.

Step 2: Inspection and Fire Damage Assessment

We carefully inspect and test adjoining rooms of your property to determine the extent of the fire, smoke, and soot damage. This step is crucial to developing a plan of action.

Step 3: Immediate Board-Up and Roof-Tarp Service (if needed)

Fire damage can often compromise windows, walls, and roofs. To maintain security and to protect against further damage, we can board up missing windows and walls and place tarps on damaged roofs. 

Step 4: Water Removal and Drying (if water damage is present)

The water removal process begins almost immediately and removes the majority of the water. We then use dehumidifiers and air movers to remove the remaining water and complete the drying process. 

Step 5: Removal of Smoke and Soot from All Surfaces

Your property’s ceiling, walls, floors, and other surfaces will likely have smoke and soot residue. We’ll use specialized cleaning products, equipment, and techniques to properly clean your home or business. 

Step 6: Cleaning and Sanitizing

Any restorable items will be cleaned and sanitized. We’ll use a variety of specialized cleaning techniques to restore your belongings to pre-fire condition. Our professionals will also remove smoke and other odors using advanced air scrubbing equipment and fogging devices with deodorizers.

Step 7: Restoration

Restoration is the process or restoring your home or business to its pre-fire condition. Restoration may involve relatively minor repairs, such as replacing drywall and painting, or it could include significant reconstruction of entire rooms.
