What is Fire Damage Restoration, and When Do You Need It?

Fire damage restoration involves the process of repairing and restoring your property, residential or commercial, after the damage caused by fire or smoke. Fire restoration may content cleaning asbestos and lead abatement, property board up, eradicating soot, smoke odors, and debris removal, demolition, and reconstruction. 

The best option for addressing a fire damage situation is by immediately calling a professional fire damage restoration company, like SERVPRO of Greater Northern Charleston. Delayed restoration after even small fire damage might lead to many issues, including decay of your property and structural issues. You might also face other problems such as mold growth, water damage, and even theft.

Sometimes a fire may not seem to have caused enough damage to involve a professional team or your insurance company.  Here are some common signs that you should get a restoration company involved.

  • Dirty or Stained Walls: One of the easiest ways to trace fire damages is through checking ceilings and walls where the fire originated. You should immediately address the matter if you notice your walls have black or gray stains days after the fire. A fire damage restoration contractor will be able to conduct a quality fire cleanup service that will also enable you to avoid replacing the material in some situations.   
  • Cloudy Air: If you still see cloudiness even after turning on your fans and opening your windows call a professional to conduct a fire damage cleanup. Breathing this kind of air can be very dangerous to your health.
  • Persistent Smoke Smell Smoke: odor in their homes gets absorbed into many materials and can remain for quite some time, even after a thorough cleaning. Fire restoration services are equipped with the proper cleaning and equipment supplies to ensure proper cleaning.
  • Rusting: Metal hardware that was on the pathway during a fire might start to rust a few days later. If your personal property relies on this hardware, the deterioration can be dangerous. Experts from a restoration company will guide you on whether to clean them thoroughly so that you can minimize rust or replace them altogether.
