Things to Know About Fire Damage Restoration

You’ve just experienced a fire in your home. It’s scary, you’ve lost important possessions, and you don’t know what to do next. That’s where Restoration 1 of Durham comes in. If you’re unsure about the next steps following a fire,here are a few of the things you’ll go through during the fire damage restoration process.

First Steps Following a Fire

To begin, everything that cannot be salvaged needs to be removed from the property. Technicians will strip flooring, appliances, irreparable HVAC components, and anything that is deemed unsafe. They will also clean up any sort of water damage that has occurred while eliminating the flames. From then on, they will assess various components of the house, like the framing and foundation, to see if it is structurally safe and sustainable long-term.

During the Restoration

If any part of your property is not as it was before the event, the team will make all of the necessary repairs until it is fully restored. For example, in many cases, drywall is damaged from the water used to put out the fire. The team at Restoration 1 of Durham will assess the damage, then will work to replace all affected drywall until it’s ready for the next steps. The same process is also utilized for things like reinforcing structural framework, restoring the HVAC system, and repairing or replacing flooring.

Restoring Air Quality

Arguably the most important thing after a fire, beyond the structural integrity of your home, is restoring the air quality. As previously mentioned, Restoration 1 of Durham technicians will remove and replace any affected HVAC components to prevent residual soot and smoke from circulating through your newly repaired property. Along with air quality, you may require odor control services to eliminate any remaining smoke smells.
