What To Expect From The Fire Restoration Process

What To Expect From The Fire Restoration Process

When you have a house fire, it seems that your life goes, well, up in flames. Through all the trauma of the situation, it may be difficult to even know where to begin to pick up the pieces. However, a fire restoration service, such as Champion Cleaning Systems in the Peachtree City area, can lighten the load tremendously.

Aside from dialing 9-1-1 and making sure your loved ones are safe and sound, calling a restoration service should be one of your first moves when you have a fire in your home. These companies are well trained and fully equipped to combat the fire damage that has plagued your home. They will run through several procedures to be sure your home is not only safe but as close to new as they can get it.

Hopefully, you have not had to deal with a fire in your home very often, if at all, so you may not be very familiar with the restoration process. After calling a service, you can rest assured knowing that an extensive analysis of your home will be conducted, and your fire damage will be handled in the best way possible.

There are a few things you can expect from the restoration process, though it may vary depending on circumstance and the level of damage:

  • Full Contents Cleaning and Restoration
  • Partial or Complete Pack Out
  • On-Site Storage Facility
  • Demolition
  • Deodorization
  • Ozoning
  • 24 Hour Emergency Board Up

Fire And Smoke Odor Cleaning

The service will immediately conduct an inspection to determine fire, soot, and smoke damage, as all three are very serious issues with different treatments. With state-of-the-art equipment and specialized training, a restoration service will be able to remove smoke and soot from walls, floors, ceilings, furniture, and as many surfaces as possible. Windows or other openings that may be damaged can be boarded up to keep your home safe. They will remove damaged items and possessions from the site of the fire, as prolonged exposure without action can lead to further damage. Deodorizing and ozone gas is used to dispel odors. The main goal of any restoration company is to get your home back to the condition it was in before the fire or better, if possible. They know fire damage is difficult enough to deal with, so they try to make the process as painless as possible.

If you have fire damage in your home, Champion Cleaning Systems recommend:

  • Contact Champion (or your local restoration service) to board up windows, roof, and damaged areas to prevent further loss.
  • Clean and protect chrome trim on faucets by washing with detergent and applying a coat of Vaseline.
  • Blow off loose smoke particles from upholstery, draperies, and carpeting.
  • Open windows for ventilation (if weather permits).
  • Empty refrigerators and freezers if electricity is off and prop doors open to allow circulation.
  • Do not wipe or attempt to clean fire residue from walls, ceilings, or absorbent surfaces.

In case of emergency, you can call Champion Cleaning Systems any time for Emergency Fire Response in the Peachtree City area.
