The Importance of a Detailed Inspection Following a Fire

Just after a fire, it is difficult to say how much damage has occurred. In some cases, all the debris and smoke residue may look like a war zone, but the damage is just superficial. At other times, the surfaces may appear to be primarily fine, but there is underlying structural damage. This is why an in-depth inspection by professionals is critical. Our fire remediation specialists begin by inspecting the property to assess the overall damage and ensure that the basic structures are safe. 

If there are places where the building is unsound, these areas must be taped off to protect people from falling debris. Our experts then discuss their findings with the owner of the property. Once the work is approved, it is time to begin bringing the home back to normal.

What Is Involved in Comprehensive Fire & Smoke Cleanup?

The process of cleaning up after a fire needs to be detailed to account for all damage. First, a thorough evaluation of the structure’s security must be conducted. After the initial damage plan has been put in place, our specialists will take a step-by-step approach to clear away the debris.

During the cleanup, you can count on our experts to:

  • Set up immediate board-up support to protect the building from suffering additional damage
  • Tape off any areas where the structural integrity has been weakened
  • Separate scorched items that need to be thrown away 
  • Use powerful but safe deodorizers to control the smell of smoke and soot
  • Get rid of all traces of soot, ash, and acidic smoke from building surfaces
  • Clean up any water that has leaked from burst pipes
  • Pack any salvageable items and valuables
