Fire Damage Restoration Process

There are several steps within a fire restoration process, which guide the direction of the project.

The Fire Damage Restoration Company is Notified

The fire damage restoration company is notified as quickly as possible after emergency services have finished putting out the fire and investigating the cause. Once the emergency services have declared the property safe to enter, the restoration company and smoke damage cleaners can act accordingly.

Assessment of the Situation

An assessment is carried out by the restoration company and loss adjusters to determine the extent of the property and contents damage. This step gauges the route that will be taken to restore the property by the smoke damage cleaners and the associated fire damage estimated time frame.

Prevent Further Damage

Initially, action will be taken to prevent further damage. For example, if there is a water leak, the source must be identified and dealt with before the fire decontamination can commence. Fire damage cleaning costs will be reviewed at this stage to complete the necessary preventative work.

Smoke, Dust and Soot Decontamination

The fire damage repair will begin with decontamination of smoke, dust and soot. Methods for this may vary but include using appropriate fire damage cleaning products for tasks such as pressure washing, air scrubbing/cleaning, steam cleaning, dry cleaning or thermal odour removal. The restoration company will remove damaged furniture to be decontaminated or disposed of if unrepairable.

Contents and Property Restoration

Fire restoration will then take place for the contents and the property. When cleaning up after a house fire, the priority will be to restore and renovate the property to a pre-fire state as accurately as possible, without the need for replacement.
