Fire damage occurs during situations where lives are often in danger. Due to such stressful situations, thinking on your feet is not an easy thing to do, because getting out alive is obviously the priority. Belongings will be damaged when a home or commercial building is ablaze, and there is nothing to do but pick up the pieces afterwards. Once the flames are extinguished, one must mitigate the losses and salvage whatever suffered the least amount of damage.
In order to do this, a professional fire damage restoration service must be brought in. There are too many mistakes to be made when dealing with fire after-effects, as well as more danger. For example, trapped water can create a hazardous atmosphere that may affect you. Soil-Away can salvage your belongings from the leftover water needed to extinguish the flames. With our truck-mounted extraction units, we can eliminate standing water from interiors so the rebuilding can begin.
Our Cleaning Process for Fire Damage
Salvaging belongings from fire damage requires a strict process in order to properly address both seen and unseen damage. On the surface, there are soot spots and the pungent smell of burning that is almost inescapable. Soot can be difficult to remove because contaminants can hide inside walls and go undetected for some time. With so many issues to deal with all at once, it is necessary to remove foundational sections and items that are too far gone. Basically, everything needs to be processed before the property can be re-inhabited.
Once we process everything, we can return all salvaged and restored contents. Soil-Away will remove or replace damaged structural and flooring components because soot often aligns with moisture pockets and settles in for further damages. These areas can be a breeding ground for mold and toxic particles thanks to oxygen and excess moisture. Our cleaning process takes care of each unsavory element, with a high chance of returning belongings and locations to pre-fire conditions.
How Does This Damage Occur on a Large Scale?
We have all heard and seen examples of fire damage. However, it is easy to assume that large-scale fires are rare. Unfortunately, the opposite is true. Storm-prone locations can create and spread fires when lightning strikes outside structures or nearby trees.
Nature also brings wind and water damages, both of which can lead to electricity-sparked fires that develop into a full blaze. While you can take precautions to halt these effects, it is impossible to be 100% protected against Mother Nature. On the man-made side of things, common space heaters can lead to major fires in a home or office. Make no mistake: you need a gameplan just in case a fire occurs. Soil-Away offers an easy-to-book service that can step in and rescue your belongings from larger fires.
Lingering Effects of Fire Damage
Smoke and soot can affect certain appliances within your structure, creating a hazardous property. Fire damage will linger long after the fire department extinguishes the blaze. In order to be 100% sure of your family’s safety, a professional needs to assess and eradicate the damages. Otherwise, these issues will continue to plague your property. Soil-Away works with insurance carriers, property management companies, major corporations, and homeowners on each case. Our experts can mitigate damages and restore belongings despite various contaminations.
