Fire Damage Restoration

In the unfortunate event that you experience a fire in your home or business, it is important that the cleanup begins as soon as possible. Smoke residues are acidic in nature and with time they will cause surfaces to corrode and stain permanently. 

Each fire loss is very complex because of the unique behaviour of smoke. It is important to have trained technicians at the loss location. 

  • Hot smoke migrates to cooler areas and upper levels of a structure.
  • Smoke flows through plumbing, electrical, and HVAC systems, using holes around pipes and ducting to go from floor to floor.
  • The type of smoke will greatly affect the restoration process.

Restorex Disaster Restoration professionals have years of experience dealing with fires of all types and sizes.

Tips:

Do

   

  • Limit movement in home to prevent soot particles from being embedded into upholstery and carpets.
  • Keep hands clean. Soot on hands can further soil upholstery, walls and woodwork. 
  • Blow or brush-vacuum loose soot particles from upholstery, drapes and carpets. 
  • Place clean towels or old linens on rugs, upholstery and high-traffic carpeted areas. 
  • If electricity is off, empty freezer and refrigerator completely and prop doors open.
  • Document all items before disposal.  
  • Clean and protect chrome on kitchen and bathroom faucets, trim and appliances with light coating of Vaseline or oil.
  • Wash house plants on both sides of leaves.
  • Change HVAC filter.

Don't

   

  • Attempt to wash any walls or painted surfaces without first contacting your RESTOREX Professional. 
  • Attempt to shampoo carpet or upholstered furniture without first consulting your RESTOREX Professional.
  • Attempt to clean any electrical appliances, TV sets, radios, etc. that may have been close to fire, heat or water without first consulting an authorized repair service.
  • Use any canned or packaged food or beverages that may have been stored close to fire, heat or water.
  • Turn on ceiling fixtures if ceiling is wet. Wiring may be wet or damaged.
  • Send garments to an ordinary dry cleaner. Improper cleaning may set smoke odor and cause permanent damage.
