One of the biggest mistakes any homeowner can make is to wait too long to begin restoration. While fire damage restoration is never an instantaneous process, it is vital that the fire damage restoration team gets an early start.
Within a few hours of the initial damage, the situation will begin to worsen. It only takes a few hours for more damage to occur. Mold can even grow from the saturated building materials in 24 hours. While this can still be repaired, the cost of repair (and the time required) will go up exponentially with every moment you wait.
While it is very important that you begin restoration services quickly, it is not just due to the potential for damage to compound. Another major reason to begin early is because you will need someone to examine your HVAC system.
When a fire occurs the smoke and soot will spread throughout your home. Oftentimes some of these particles end up in your HVAC system. These tiny particles, in turn, can irritate your lungs as they are breathed in and potentially cause even more serious damage.
That's why the first part of any fire damage restoration project is actually an inspection of your HVAC system. Luckily, our disaster restoration professionals are fully equipped to deal with all aspects of fire damage. We'll be able to find a way to fully restore all the property we can and minimize future damage.
Disaster doesn't wait until it's convenient, and we know this. Our team is always ready and will be there when you need us. We'll address your problem quickly in order to minimize any future damage and can also board-up the building to keep out intruders.

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.
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 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.
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.
