You are suddenly startled by the high-pitched shriek of the fire alarm in your home. You jump up and run for the kitchen, realizing you forgot that you had a pie in the oven. As you reach the doorway, you are met with smoke and flames. You scramble for the fire extinguisher and are able to put the fire out, but there is definitely damage to the surrounding area. Shaken, you think, “What am I supposed to do now?”
Fire damage, including odor and smoke destruction, in your home or business can be widespread and overwhelming. It can affect every kind of surface, including furniture, carpeting, faucets, and even stainless steel fixtures. In addition, fire can release toxins into the environment causing eye irritation, respiratory aggravation, or making existing medical conditions worse. And the emotional effects of fire damage can be equally as harmful, particularly when treasured personal effects are marred or lost. We understand the delicate nature of fire damage restoration, and intend to handle your situation with the utmost care and compassion, simplifying the recovery process as much as possible.
The Fire Department, of course, is your first line of defense when facing a fire. But once the fire is out, the professionals at Joe Taylor Restoration are ready to respond to your fire emergency within 2 hours of your call, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. These restoration technicians understand the need for quick response. When it comes to fire, smoke, and soot damage, urgent remediation is key to controlling any escalating costs. The longer the neutralization, corrosion control and cleaning is delayed, the more extensive the damage and the higher the cost of restoration. Our professionals will utilize the latest technology to assess the damage, appropriate to the kind of fire that occurred, and get to work immediately on the fire damage restoration process.
Though the recovery process for fire and smoke damage can vary depending on the type of fire that took place and the extent of the damage, our technicians are fully trained to handle fire damage restoration under all circumstances. Most situations require specialized cleaning to rid the property of soot residue, preventing permanent damage or discoloration of objects that have not been directly affected by the flames. In addition, ridding your home or business of smoky or other fire-related odor is also necessary to ensure the restoration of air quality. This process includes removal, cleaning, and sealing of various surfaces within the property.
