Restoring Your Spokane Home from Fire Damage

5/30/2020 (Permalink)

Fires are devastating to structures. Not only does the fire damage surfaces, but the smoke generated and the water from putting it out can make things even worse. For fire damage restoration to happen, several things must be done.

Handling the Fire’s Damage

The fire damage itself may not only include the actual furnishings and items burned, but also the structural components of the home such as drywall, studs, floor joists and roof trusses. All damaged furnishings need to be removed. Additionaly, electrical wiring and plumbing repairs may be necessary.  Restoring the structural integrity of the home is a first priority.

Minimizing Water Damage

Cleaning up the water damage fast is important since it only takes a matter of hours before mold begins to grow. Removing all wet surfaces, including damaged drywall and flooring, is necessary. Once this is done, those surfaces need proper cleaning an treatment to prevent mold growth.

Overcoming Smoke Damage

Fire damage cleanup nearly always involves smoke damage care. This may include cleaning surfaces, sanitizing the HVAC system, and painting rooms to lock out the scent of the smoke. Discoloration on surfaces also needs to be taken care of professionally to restore the property.
