The Immediate Consequences of Fire Damage
If you have suffered fire damage in a home, business, it is imperative to act quickly. Fire damage causes the immediate spread of toxic chemicals that are harmful to humans and animals alike and can lead to serious health concerns if left untreated.

Dealing With Insurance Agencies After Fire Damage
Many families are faced with how to handle insurance agency questions and paperwork after a fire. Assistance from a reputable restoration company is vital to preserving records and documents and ensuring you do not face any repayment issues during or after your claim.
To properly prevent further damage or losses in the event of a fire, it is important that all companies involved with your case be familiar with the American National Standard for Emergency Management (ANSEM). The NFPA recommends that restoration companies carry certifications from the International Association of Certified Home Inspectors (InterNACHI) and the National Association of Insurance and Financial Advisors (NAIFA).

Dealing With The Smell After Fire Damage
After a fire, smoke can spread throughout the air. You may notice that you have a hard time breathing and are wheezing or coughing after a fire. This is normal, but even if you don't feel like you have any negative symptoms, it is still important to deal with the smell.
As soon as the damage has been cleaned up, open windows to let fresh air in. Keep in mind that the smell can stick inside the building for a long while after a fire. Remember, odor removal is the most important step in the restoration process.
Cleaning Up Fire Damage With Chemicals
Once you have removed the smoke and soot, removing the remaining contaminants from your home is possible. We use safe chemical-based products to remove smoke and odors to help reduce any potential health risks in your home.
Cleaning Up Fire Damage With Water
Fire damage can lead to the spread of the most harmful bacteria and mold. Mold is a widespread issue after a fire, and it is tough to remove if left untreated. If cleaning up residue from smoke, make sure you use only water once the remaining soot has been removed. Hot water and strong detergents will not be effective in removing mold spores. Not only are harsh detergents ineffective, but they can cause serious damage to the home's structure if used in large amounts.
