The National Fire Protection Association stated that a structure fire is reported every 65 seconds in the United States. As soon as an alarm sounds, fire departments and emergency responders answer the call for help with quick and decisive action. When the smoke clears fire restoration services team remains ready to help with the same rapid response – 24-hours a day, 365 days a year.
For the victims caught up in or affected by a fire, whether, at home or work, it can be one of the most traumatizing and frightening experiences. The speed and ferocity of a fire makes you feel truly vulnerable and can cause huge amounts of damage and loss to property.
The damage caused by fires doesn’t end when the flames have been extinguished. When dealing with fire damage, families often see their prized possessions and the roof over their heads destroyed, leaving them searching for a safe place to shelter. Meanwhile, businesses can find themselves in financial struggles and unable to trade. Quick fire damage restoration can be the key to limiting the emotional and financial struggles that are caused by a fire.
What Is Fire Damage Restoration?
With a fire, the “golden hours” of recovery are the first 24 to 48 hours after fire damage. The goal is to quickly stabilize the facility and ensure the recovery of as much property as possible. The smoke and acidic soot damage that is often produced in fires accelerate the deterioration and corrosion of building components and vital assets. To compound the problem, fires are most frequently extinguished with dry chemicals or water. Plus, the toxic smoke odor left behind must be neutralized and deodorized.
A fire damage restoration process includes mitigating damage, providing smoke damage cleanup, and water restoration as quickly as possible after the damage first occurs. Beyond the visible structural damage, contents inside the structure must be evaluated for recovery based on several factors including:
- Replacement Cost vs. Restoration Cost
- Effect of Smoke and Heat
- Loss of Use
- Loss of Value
- Decreased Life Expectancy
- Sentimental Value
Synergy Property Restoration’s fire restoration services can include emergency board-up, demolition, soot removal film application, deodorization to mitigate smoke odors, and complete reconstruction.
