Fire Damage Restoration

It’s hard to appreciate the extent of fire damage to your property. Fires can spread rapidly through a home or commercial property, causing widespread damage. Even in areas untouched by the flame, smoke and soot can spread, leaving behind potentially toxic residue, fumes, and odors. Even fighting a fire can cause damage. If the fire department responded to the fire or if a fire suppression system triggered, you might have water damage.

Professional restoration services ensure that all aspects of fire damage are treated properly and thoroughly.

Common Causes of Fire Damage

Fire is a recognized hazard in homes and businesses. Although there are fire safety steps you can take to reduce the risk, there is always a chance that fires will occur. Among the most common causes of fire are:

  • Cooking fires – Cooking is the leading cause of house fires in the US. It’s the cause of almost half of all fires. Stay in the kitchen and remain alert while cooking to avoid fires.
  • Heaters and fireplaces – Portable heaters can cause fires if placed too close to flammable materials. Older space heaters often lacked safeguards and should be replaced. Make sure your chimneys are cleaned regularly and use a sturdy screen in front of the fireplace.
  • Electrical fires – – Electrical fires can occur in faulty wiring or because of overloaded outlets. Have your electrical system inspected and make sure electrical work is done by an electrician. Don’t use frayed or damaged extension cords.
  • Candles and smoking – Candles and smoking introduce additional potential fire hazards to your home in areas that may not be resistant to catching fire. Don’t place candles near flammable materials, and always monitor candles as they burn. Don’t smoke in bed, and always have a safe and sturdy ashtray to place cigarettes and their ashes.

Regardless of how or where a fire started, it can spread through the home and cause considerable damage.

Common Causes of Fire Damage - Prevention Tips

What to Do After Fire Damage

Your first concern when a fire starts is getting everyone to safety. Once everyone is safe and you’ve contacted emergency services to fight the fire and deal with injuries, you can start taking steps to deal with property damage.

Follow these steps after fire damage at your home or business:
  • Stay off the property – There are many potential dangers on a property that’s been damaged by fire. These may include weakened floors, toxic fumes, residual hot spots, and more. Do not go on the property until the fire department has said that it will be safe to do so.
  • Contact your insurance company – Your odds of getting payment from your insurance company increase when you report fire damage promptly. The good news is fire damage is generally covered by insurance. Fire damage coverage typically includes not just repairs to the property, but compensation for short-term rentals or hotels to stay in while restoration work proceeds.
  • Contact a fire damage restoration company – After contacting your insurance, your next call should be to a professional fire damage restoration company. They can help get fire damage restoration started immediately, including limiting further damage to your property. Alpha Omega is standing by 24/7 to help with fire damage restoration at any time of day or night.
  • Recover your possessions – Our team will help you create a detailed list of damaged property so you can file a comprehensive claim with your insurance company. We can also accompany you into the damaged property for help in recovering essential personal documents, including birth certificates, social security cards, IDs, and passports. Make a list of anything you can’t find so you can replace it.
  • Seal the property – A fire can leave your home open to the elements. Destroyed windows, doors, walls, and roof can all be entry points for water, animals, vandals, and thieves. Alpha Omega can provide a temporary board-up service to protect your property from further damage.

After this, you may need to look for a place where your family can stay while repairs progress.

Addressing Smoke and Soot Damage

When you have a fire on your property, it isn’t just the flames that cause damage. Instead, soot and smoke damage might be even more extensive. Because smoke and soot are airborne, they can travel throughout the property and settle on any and every surface. The residue from smoke and soot can be sticky and oily. It enters your air ducts, and soaks into any kind of fabric or upholstery, including clothes, bedding, carpeting, furniture, and even a child’s beloved cuddle toy. The smoke can go through holes in sheetrock to get into insulation, which can lead to smoky odors that are very difficult to eliminate.

Removing smoke and soot residue can be challenging. It’s not only extensive, but its chemical nature resists many conventional cleaning tools. At Alpha Omega, we have the proper tools for smoke damage restoration. We can quickly and effectively remove soot residue and smoke odors from your property and belongings. We’ll eliminate it from hard surfaces, fabrics, and even electronics.

Our Fire Damage Restoration Process

At Alpha Omega, we have a thorough restoration process that ensures all restoration work is handled properly. With Alpha Omega fire damage restoration, you can expect:

  • Fire damage inspection – When we first arrive, we will inspect your property to determine the extent of damage. We’ll create a customized restoration plan that will include both the cost of restoration and its timeline. We may have to negotiate this with your insurance company.
  • Emergency board-up – A board-up protects your property from further damage due to weather, animals, vandalism, and theft.
  • Water extraction and removal – If water was used to extinguish the fire, your property may need to have the water extracted. We can quickly remove visible water and dry both visible and hidden areas affected by water.
  • Fire damage cleanup – We’ll remove objects and parts of the building damaged by fire. This clears the way for repairs and full restoration.
  • Fire damage repairs – We will repair the damage to restore the structural integrity and stability of your home or business.
  • Smoke and soot removal – Once repairs are complete, we can begin removing the residue from the fire. This includes visible soot residue and lingering smoke odors. In addition to smoke deodorization, we will eliminate any potential safety hazards caused by toxic smoke residue.

The exact timetable for your repairs will depend on the extent of the damage. However, the sooner you start, the sooner we can complete your repairs.

The time required for fire damage restoration varies based on the extent of the damage. If there was only minor damage to your property, the process can potentially be completed within several weeks. However, more extensive fire damage that has ravaged your entire property may take several months or longer to complete. It's important to hire a reliable and experienced restoration company to ensure that the process is done efficiently and effectively.

It is not recommended to attempt cleaning up fire damage on your own. Fire damage restoration involves specialized equipment and techniques to ensure that all traces of fire and smoke are properly removed. Without proper training and equipment, you could potentially put yourself at risk of further damage or health hazards.
