What Should I Do First If There’s Been a House Fire?
The shock, emotional distress and possible physical injury leave many property owners unsure of what to do after a house fire or commercial building fire. The most important step you can take is to contact a professional fire restoration service. The Team at Austin Water Damage acts quickly to get to the property and begin assessing the damage immediately. You will also need to open all of the windows and find a place to stay until the fire damage cleanup is complete. The fire soot and carcinogenic gases of fire smoke can pose serious health risks.
Do I Need Professional Fire Restoration or Can I Do the Work Myself?
It’s understandable that property owners want to minimize cost and get to work right away after fire damage. Unfortunately, they don’t know what to do after a fire or what step to take first to safely and properly begin the remediation process. Professional fire restoration services are needed due to the significant risk associated with handling smoke soot and ash. Fire damage cleaning and restoration professionals use special safety equipment at every stage of the process. Our technicians have also received training in the specialized techniques and equipment that are needed for complete fire and smoke restoration, including subsequent water damage. Not all fire restoration companies can also offer water remediation services. With Austin Water Damage your home can be fully restored to its pre-fire condition by working with just one company.
What happens during the fire restoration process?
Every situation is unique, but Austin Water Damage has developed a streamlined process that helps us start the fire damage clean up as quickly as possible.
Inspection of the Damage
The first step is for one of our experienced inspectors to assess the damage to determine what fire cleanup services are needed. Often water and fire damage restoration is needed because of the firefighting efforts.
Securing the Property
Our team will provide temporary roofing and board up the property if needed to protect against further damage.
Water and Fire Restoration
If there’s a need for water damage restoration, Austin technicians that are certified in water removal and remediation will be utilized first. Once all moisture is removed we’ll begin the process of soot and smoke removal from all surfaces. We can then begin cleaning smoke damage and making repairs.
Do Your Technicians Know How To Get Rid of Fire Smoke Smell?
Smoke damage smell removal is no easy task. Our highly trained technicians know how to get fire smoke smell out of a house or commercial building to minimize the cost of restoration. In fact, needing to know how to remove fire smoke smell from a house is why many customers contact us. We use specialized, odor-removing equipment that can get rid of fire smoke smell from walls, ceilings, carpets and upholstery.
Do I need to contact my insurance company before fire restoration contractors come out?
You’ll need to alert your insurance company as soon as possible, but that is not required for the fire and smoke damage clean up to begin. To minimize residual damage it’s important to begin the fire, water and smoke remediation process immediately.
