What to Expect During The Restoration Process After A Fire
A fire in your home is a traumatic experience; not only do you lose treasured mementos, but there’s a chance you may lose your home as well. After the fire, you must work quickly to avoid losing more due to smoke damage. Mammoth Restoration explains what you can expect during the process when you contact our restoration company in Flagstaff, AZ.
The first step in restoring your home or business is to contact your local provider of emergency restoration services so they can assess how much smoke or fire damage you sustained. This assessment considers how deeply the fire affected the home, if there are signs of heat damage to furniture, walls, and other items, and how much soot and smoke cover everything.
Securing The Property
Once we finish our assessment, the next step is to secure the property. This means you should plug or cover any holes in the roof or walls to protect against pests and rainwater. The first priority is to prevent further damage to your home, making fire damage restoration easier after.
Cleaning And Removal
It’s challenging to remove soot and smoke on your own after a fire as the staining goes deep beyond the surface. If your home also has water damage from the act of putting out the fire, our cleanup process also includes removing the water and airing out the structure with special heaters and fans.
No matter the size of the fire, there will always be a need for repairs. With finished wood items, the finish is stripped, sanded down, and then refinished to remove the odor and smoke damage. With unfinished wood, one option is to apply a sealant to cover the odor, but that doesn’t always work.
When it comes to restoring your home after a fire, it helps that you choose a company you can rely upon to help. We offer comprehensive restoration services in Flagstaff, AZ, and can help restore your home to its former condition. Contact us today to schedule an appointment.
