Helping to clean Fire Damage Burnouts

Most fire restoration projects involve cleaning and restoring their contents and structures. Fire damage can be caused by fire, smoke, or water used to extinguish the fire. Repairing fire damage is a long and tedious process. The sooner you clean and repair fire damage, the better for you, your property, and your wallet.

Post-Fire cleanup can cause more damage

Fires cause significant damage to physical buildings and property. However, post-fire activity can cause greater damage. It's important to take immediate action, but it has to be right so you don't do more harm than good. Carpets, curtains, upholstered furniture, and clothing can usually be removed and cleaned after a fire with professional equipment and experience.

Cleaning Fire, Soot & Smoke: Chemical Reactions 

Not all fire damage is equal. The Red Cross offers advice to get you started, but it's important to remember that fires cause smoke damage - visible soot and invisible odors. Fire damage recovery techniques vary depending on the components of the fire.

Because every fire is different, providing uniform guidelines for fire damage recovery is impossible. The smell of wood smoke may react differently to some cleaning agents than the smell of plastic smoke. For property owners without experience in fire damage clean-up and remediation, it may be difficult, if not impossible, to restore the fire-damaged property and remove smoke odors without professional help and equipment.

Taking the first few steps to clean up and recover from fire damage will soon get you back to normal!
