After first responders extinguish a fire, a home or business obviously has fire damage. In reality, for a fire of any size, there is also water damage and smoke damage to deal with. At Disaster Kleenup, our fire damage teams are experts in several steps needed to fully recover.
- Securing property: This can be more challenging than it sounds. Firefighters may have cut into walls or roofing in an attempt to douse flames with lots of water. That standing water needs to be removed, and boarding or fencing installed to prevent unauthorized entry. This is typically done at the same time a fire investigation is underway, which must be complete before restoration work begins.
- Assessing fire damage: Once first responders release the property, a Disaster Kleenup estimator looks at the damage to both the building and its contents. This can be factored into a plan working with your insurance company to clearly define coverage and the scope of a settlement.
- Extracting possessions: Items that are not completely destroyed by the fire are often salvageable. The contents of the home or business are inventoried, and brought to the Disaster Kleenup facility for cleaning and disinfecting.
- Cleaning up: After removing fire debris and water, sanitization and deodorization begins. This is a critical step to restoring a home or business; Disaster Kleenup teams use special equipment and techniques to eliminate odors and contamination.
- Rebuild: One unique aspect of Disaster Kleenup is our in-house contractors for rebuild and reconstruction needs. Instead of handing the job off, DK continues to oversee the fire damage restoration efforts until completion.
