Speedy fire damage restoration in OH

It's vital that fire restoration is done quickly following fire damage. Within hours if possible. While the cleaning process should not begin until its verified that there is no further damage by professionals like ServiceMaster by Disaster Recon, it is still important to have experts on the scene quickly.

Mold damage can begin in as little as 24 hours after saturation of building materials. This damage can affect all organic surfaces and can be much more expensive than the fire damage itself. Waiting even a single day to begin can greatly compound the damage, cost, and restoration time needed.

Our proven fire damage restoration process

  • Inspecting the structural integrity of the building for safety.
  • Identifying the source to determine the type of fire that occurred.
  • Evaluating all areas that suffered water damage as a result of fire suppression efforts to identify those that may need treatment.
  • Remediating water damage (if any).
  • Evaluating sensitive materials that may be damaged as a result of smoke and soot particles.
  • Removing contents from the building, including:
    • Collecting immediate items you may need to operate your business remotely.
    • Securing removal, storage, and cleaning of sensitive files and data storage devices.
    • Salvaging of product stock, raw materials, commodities, and machinery.
    • Packing out the remaining contents for cleaning and storage.
  • Performing structural restoration, including:
    • Removing of any charred contents that may seal in smoke such as insulation and burned wood.
    • Evaluating carpets and floor coverings that may need to be removed.
    • Treating affected surfaces for smoke odors and sealing to keep any leftover odors from leaking back into the building.
  • Cleaning, eliminating odors and deodorizing surfaces to pre-loss condition
  • Returning items to the original location and helping to restore your normal operation.

Smoke damage removal and restoration

Smoke is probably the most effective way to quickly soil just about every surface of your commercial building, short of inviting a dozen preschoolers to lunch. While smoke and soot damage often occurs because of a fire, it can also stem from other causes like a malfunctioning heating appliance or flue spewing fuel-oil soot.

Unlike water leaks and flooding, damage due to smoke is not confined to low-lying areas. Hot smoke travels to cool areas. It also rises to levels above the source of the smoke, such as from the basement to the first and second floor. Often, plumbing chases and HVAC ducts serve as the conduits for getting from one floor to the next.

Fire Damage

The direct damage from any fire is caused by the fire itself, as well as the immediate heat damage from the fire.

Fire will char anything it touches. Noncombustible objects may melt, and paint and wallpaper will peel. Some fires leave corrosive substances behind when they're extinguished that can damage wood, plastic, metal, and other substances.

Smoke Damage

While fire may damage only a small area, smoke will permeate far and wide in a structure.

High temperatures during a fire can open pores that will bring the smoke deep inside your building materials, property, and inside the HVAC system. This smoke can be corrosive and potentially toxic, and it will lead to long-term smoke odors in the area.

Water Damage

Water damage and fire damage go hand in hand, as fire hoses flood the area at a rate of 95 gallons per minute.

Water damage will spread far beyond the fire-affected area, working downhill to flood lower floors and enter cavities and voids within the building. This will damage electrical components, insulation, drywall, personal possessions, and other property.

Mold & Rot Damage

Within 24-48 hours of the water saturation that goes along with extinguishing a fire, mold will begin to grow.

Mold will create an extremely unhealthy environment within the home while it destroys personal property and may even create a potential structural issue. By drying the area thoroughly and immediately, this damage can be avoided.

Smoke can leave behind far-reaching effects - we can help!

Smoke is probably the most effective way to quickly soil just about every surface of your home, short of inviting a dozen preschoolers to lunch. A malfunctioning heating appliance or flue spewing fuel-oil soot, a neglected pan of food catching fire on the range top or in the oven, starting up the fireplace without opening the damper – there are lots of ways to produce smoke and the soot and odor that accompanies it.

Unlike water leaks and flooding, damage due to smoke is not confined to low-lying areas. Hot smoke travels to cool areas. It also rises to levels above the source of the smoke, such as from the basement to the first and second floor. Often, plumbing chases and HVAC ducts serve as the conduits for getting from one floor to the next.

We're experts in repairing all types of smoke damage

Types of smoke can determine the best approach to smoke damage repair. “Wet” smoke, from slow smoldering fires, leaves a sticky residue that will smear, making it more difficult to clean than “dry” smoke from fast-burning fires. The latter leaves a more powdery ash. Smoke from food fires, also known as protein fires, cover surfaces with a fine film that's tough to see but easy to smell. The pungent odors of a protein fire must be dealt with using a trial-and-error approach based upon a variety of time-tested techniques.

Soot damage from fuel oil fires and furnace back puffing are easy to see but require special cleaning techniques so as not to make the problem worse. The smell from electrical fires can be persistent as well.

If you're planning to sell your home and there are lingering odors from past fire damage or from smoking cigarettes or cigars in the home, call us before your first open house! There are few things that will put off potential buyers quicker than a bad smell.
