Local Fire Damage Restoration Specialists
Our Fire Damage Restoration Process
Fires can leave your home or business open to the environment and at risk of further damage be it weather, animals or even vandals. If you call Rapid Dry when a fire-related disaster is occurring on your property, our emergency response team will arrive at your home or business, ready to secure the building as soon as the fire fighters are done with their job.
As soon as we can get into your property, we will send one of our restoration experts to conduct a thorough inspection to evaluate the damage done by the fire, and the possible water damage left over from the firefighters’ work in extinguishing the fire.
From this inspection, we will be able to see the extent of the damage and make a itemized list of irreparable materials Then we can create a plan which will give us a view of the scope and timeline of the restoration.
Because water continues to create irreversible damage the longer it is allowed to sit, we have to extract any standing water before we can start addressing the actual damage to your property. Rapid Dry utilizes the highest quality water extraction and dehumidifying equipment in the industry, ensuring that every drop of water is removed from your home or business as quickly as possible. This step is crucial for decreasing any extra water damage that may be caused by a delayed response or inferior techniques.
Fires cause damage, that’s no secret. but what can be surprising is just how much of a mess they can make. Beyond the burnt building materials, smoke and ash spread to every inch of your home or business, leaving behind a shocking amount of damage and requiring serious cleaning. In order for us to see what has been damaged beyond repair, we need to clean up the entire area. This will allow us to begin strategically removing the damaged materials and set us up for deodorizing your home or business.
Even when the fire has been extinguished, the water has been extracted, and the damage has been cleaned, the residual smoke particles will create an overwhelming odor, sometimes rendering your home or business uninhabitable. Our team of restoration experts will use advanced deodorization techniques that salvage as much of your home or business as possible while eradicating the unpleasant odors.
The last phase of our restoration is rebuilding and remodeling your home or business. This may include structural repairs, plumbing or electrical work, and more cosmetic work like cabinetry and flooring. As a licensed general contractor, Rapid Dry is able to complete all of your restoration jobs, from start to finish, while working with your insurance company to make sure you are covered.
