What happens during fire damage remediation?

The first step in fire damage remediation is to conduct a comprehensive assessment of the destruction. An inspector from Damage Services will identify all areas of your home that have been affected, create a detailed remediation plan, and explain what will be necessary to restore your home to its pre-fire condition.

Every home is different, and no two fires are the same. The process of restoring your home will depend on the size of the fire, and the structure of your home (wiring, plumbing, windows, HVAC system, tiling, and mechanical systems).

When will the restoration process start?

It is important that the restoration process begins as soon as possible to minimize the overall cost of repairs. At Damage Services, we understand the importance of restoring your home to its pre-fire condition quickly. Our team will arrive promptly and give you a realistic timeline for repairs before the restoration process begins. We are very responsive to your needs and there may be projects we start on the spot. 

Can I Do the Clean-Up Myself?

If you attempt to do the cleanup yourself, you could potentially be causing further damage due to unseen water hidden in your walls, ceilings, and floors. This can lead to mold contamination, or structural damage.

Because of this, it is important to have trained professionals do the work for you.

Damage Services specializes in water damage restoration and cleanup. If you experience unwanted water in your home, call us at 800.292.5777.

Will the smell of smoke ever go away?

Just because the smoke residue has been removed doesn’t mean your home will smell like it did before the fire. But the pros at Damage Services have the tools and techniques to permanently remove the smell of smoke from your home.
