Restoring Fire Damage in Spokane
Fires can be devastating. Not only does fire damage surfaces, but the smoke generated and the water used to extinguish the fire can make things even worse. But fire damage can be restored. In order for that 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. Additionally, electrical wiring and plumbing repairs may be necessary. Restoring the structural integrity of the home is the first priority.
Minimizing Water Damage
Cleaning up the water damage fast is important since it only takes a matter of hours before mold can begin to grow. Removing all wet surfaces, including damaged drywall and flooring, may be necessary. Once this is done, those surfaces need proper cleaning and treatment to prevent mold growth.
Cleaning Up Smoke Damage
Fire damage cleanup nearly always involves smoke damage restoration. 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. This is not a task for untrained property owners. Doing this properly requires specialized training and equipment.
