The fire damage mitigation process can restore a blaze-damaged Corning, NY dwelling to its original condition. The trick is to start fire restoration services as fast as possible. Here’s what must be done:
Perform a Damage Assessment
A team of fire damage experts will conduct a thorough investigation of the premises and document all damages in detail. Each fire is different, so every restoration is customized.
The assessment may include damages that you can’t see. Overlooked structural damage, for example, can cause serious problems later that are not covered by insurance.
Create a Plan
After the evaluation is performed, a plan is implemented to restore the property to its prior condition. Armed with a precise directive, qualified professionals can proceed in an orderly and efficient manner.
Fire and water can damage a home’s structural foundation. Unsafe areas are isolated. Exposed property may be boarded up to protect it from the elements.
Dry Out the Premises
Unless the property is completely dried out, it will smell like wet socks. Pockets of moisture can give rise to mold and rot. The faster that water is removed, the better.
Extract Smoke and Soot
Specialized equipment removes soot from hard and soft surfaces and salvageable items. Ceilings, walls, and floors all become soot-free. Air scrubbing technology removes the smoky smell from indoor air.
Sanitize the Property
Items that survive the fire are thoroughly cleaned off-site. Unsalvageable items are hauled away. The area is prepped for restoration.
Fire damage reversal can include drywall replacement, painting, floor and carpet replacement, carpentry jobs, and remodeling projects. All restored items are returned to a fully refurbished space.
