What is Fire Damage Restoration?

What is Fire Damage Restoration?A house fire is an unfortunate possibility for all homes, apartments and other buildings. Fires begin to burn for a variety of reasons, and if not controlled in matter of minutes, it can destroy a whole house, and everything inside. If the fire is able to be extinguished in a relatively quick manner there is a good chance the home still sustained some structural damage and definitely was subject to major smoke damage. Once the fire is out the danger hasn't necessarily been exhausted. In order to halt further destruction of the home it is important to call a fire damage restoration company who can restore your home's structural integrity and reverse the effects of the smoke.

It is important to contact an expert restoration company as soon as possible after the fire is put out. The longer you wait the more damage will be incurred. As smoke and ash linger in the air they will cause yellowing of walls and ceilings, light colored carpets, appliances and other materials. A lingering odor will also become harder to remove the more time has passed. After just a few days it may become impossible to remove the yellowing or smell and complete reconstruction will likely have to be performed.

Soot may build up throughout the home, causing extensive damage to whatever surface it lands on, including many metals that may be subject to rust. Because ash is acidic it will cause permanent damage to many objects in the home if not immediately salvaged. Professional fire restoration crews will use odor counteractant and deodorizing fog to remove the heavy smell of smoke and burnt wood. Furthermore they will seal salvageable items to prevent recontamination in the future.

The longer a homeowner waits to have a professional come assess and repair fire damages, the more expensive it will be. If you are the unfortunate victim of a house fire, be sure to act quickly so that your home and possessions can be properly salvaged and repaired as applicable.
