What Does A Fire Damage Restoration Company Do?

1/21/2022 (Permalink)

Maybe you’ve heard of a fire damage restoration company before, but what exactly do they do? Why would it be helpful to hire one post-fire? 

What does a fire damage restoration company do?

  • Damage assessment 

First and foremost, a fire damage restoration company assesses the damage caused by fire and decides the most appropriate course of action to take to tackle the aftermath. 

  • Fire and smoke restoration

Anything damaged by fire is likely charred, smoke-filled, sooty, and potentially past return. Fire and smoke restoration technicians will restore any possessions that they can to their original state if desired.

  • Odor control and deodorization

Smoke can be hazardous to your health and is pervasive throughout your home or business after a fire. Controlling and removing this odor is a specialty of fire damage restoration companies. 

  • Upholstery and fabric cleaning

Smoke, soot, ash, and fire often severely damage and pervade upholstery and fabrics within your home or business. These can be cleaned and restored by a fire damage restoration company if they’re not past the point of no return.
