Five Steps of Fire Damage Restoration
Tuesday, November 5, 2019
As of late, our weekly blog posts have been focused on fire damage, as well as the other types of property damage that can result from a fire. This week, we will continue our focus on fire damage, but this time, zero in on the job of restoration experts and the five steps of fire damage restoration:
- Remove all damaged components. If there are any unsafe components that cannot be restored, they should be removed from the home or property. Taking shortcuts here can cause these problems to worsen in the long run.
- Remove flooring. To prevent the collection of soot, dust, and other harmful elements, remove any floor coverings that could promote an unhealthy or unsafe environment.
- Evaluate the structural framing. It’s important to be sure that all unseen parts of the house, such as framing and subfloor material, are up to safety standards.
- Treat for odor and contamination. If the structure’s framing can be saved, treat it with odor counteractants that ensure no microbial contamination is present.
- Remove or restore the HVAC system. This is a critical step that will ensure no harmful particles spread through the air, causing future health problems.
