Effectively restoring a building and its contents after a fire requires a fast response. When it comes to insurance recovery, the first 24 to 48 hours are crucial to reduce secondary damage.
Fire restoration needs to consider the structural damage, as well as control ongoing contamination and eliminate persistent odours. As smoke and soot settle across surfaces, it’s vital to have the property thoroughly cleaned with the right chemicals and materials.
Damage caused by the extreme heat, as well as the noxious and corrosive residue left behind, can have a long-lasting impact on the property. Without timely remediation, there can be severe exposure to pollution and lung irritants if ash, soot and smoke linger in the property.
