Inspection and Damage Assessment
Before we begin our process of smoke and fire damage cleanup in Andover CT homes, we inspect and assess the damage. We understand that each fire is different and each home sustains damage in unique ways. During our initial walkthrough, we examine each area in your home to inventory the damage and establish your personalized restoration plan.
- Document visible fire, smoke, and soot damage
- Determine your need for emergency repairs
- Inspect structural issues
- Assess ambient air for smoke contamination
- Look for water residue and moisture
- Evaluate your need for immediate restoration services
Once we understand the full scope of your damages, we review the information with you and proceed with emergency measures.
Temporary Board-Ups and Tarping
Before we begin smoke and fire damage cleanup in Andover CT homes, we complete emergency protective measures. We board up damaged doors and windows and tarp any open areas on your roof. This step is critical because fires sometimes burn openings in roofs, walls, and other areas. Firemen also create emergency openings while putting out fires.
These openings leave your home exposed to adverse weather conditions and criminal activity. Even light rain can further damage your home interior and its furnishings. When a building is vacant and unprotected, thieves see it as an opportunity for criminal activity. Our protective measures minimize the potential for additional damage and theft.
Property insurance policies specifically require insureds to perform emergency repairs and protect property from further damage. Our emergency efforts help you ensure compliance with your insurance policy terms. We’re available 24 hours a day to assist you with board-ups, tarping, and emergency repairs.
Soot and Smoke Damage Removal
Fire, gas, and carbon particles create the soot that drifts throughout your home. Fire soot and smoke soot coat walls, ceilings, and fabric surfaces. They enter vents and closets, leaving behind a dark coating and a pungent smell. Soot and smoke contaminate everything they touch. As part of our fire damage and smoke damage restoration, we remove harmful residue and odors to save your belongings from further damage.
When fires release chemicals into your home, odors become a lingering problem. If they remain in your home, they sometimes cause breathing difficulties and other health problems.
When we conduct smoke and fire damage cleanup in Andover CT homes, we professionally remove chemical contaminants and odors. We use industrial scrubbers, foggers, specialized equipment, and odor-neutralizing products. We remove lingering smells from walls, fabric surfaces, furniture, and other affected areas.
Water Removal and Drying
Firemen need water to put out fires and minimize structural damage. It’s highly effective at extinguishing flames, but water often seeps beyond the immediate areas. Until you remove and dry out all the water, moisture allows mold and mildew to grow. They damage fabric, wood, photographs, furniture, and other porous surfaces; and they generate an unpleasant mildewy smell.
Water removal and drying are two important facets of smoke and fire damage cleanup in Andover CT. Because we respond immediately, we remove the moisture before mold and mildew have a chance to destroy your property.
Fire Extinguisher Cleanup
A fire extinguisher’s powdery compounds eliminate small fires, but they coat surfaces with a chemical residue. If not properly eliminated and cleaned, some chemicals irritate your skin, eyes, and mucous membranes. We clean and remove extinguisher residue when we perform smoke and fire damage cleanup in Andover CT homes.
