In Need of Fire Damage Experts?

Did you know that the number one thing people need for survival is shelter? Yes, especially if you live or work in a four-season environment. Unfortunately, fires are not just a threat when it comes to your property. Businesses can end up in financial trouble, and families/tenants would end up in dire straits without a roof over their heads.

The National Fire Protection Association has reported that a structural fire occurs every 65 seconds. It is said that when an alarm sound or a 911 call is made, fire departments & emergency responders spring into action.

There’s no doubt a fire not only can be the most traumatizing & hazardous thing to happen to you or your loved one, but it can also be the worst thing for your property. Sadly, it does not end once the flames and smoke are extinguished.

During a crisis like that, families are left with nothing but a damaged home or even no roof over their heads; meanwhile, businesses are left in financial limbo with little to no means of doing commerce. Therefore, a responsive company like The Fire Restoration Team (TFRT) is the silver lining that mitigates the financial & emotional burden that comes with such a plight.

Once the smoke clears, our crew responds to a call in the same manner as the emergency responders. We spring into action when necessary 24 hours a day, seven days a week, throughout the year. Whether it would be a small burst of flames in the oven or a wildfire eating away your property, we got you covered with the most advanced equipment & trained individuals to restore your home or business from any levels of damage repair. Fire damage cleanup, reconstruction, smoke damage inspection, & soot cleanup are just some of the endless amounts of services that we provide relating to fire.

Full-Service Property Inspection and Cleaning

In addition to our offered services, our team always provides a complimentary thorough inspection of the property that involves sanitizing the place after toxins & contaminants like soot & smoke damage have filled the property with carcinogenic and often airborne substances.

Additionally, this inspection may detect other things you may not have noticed, such as mold or water damage. Luckily, we can fix those issues as well. Our team will arrive within the hour to cover all the upholsteries & dry furnishings with sheets while keeping some openings to the outside world (if weather permits) for ventilation. That way, we take care of your possessions. Our crew also boards up your property during the recovery process.

You May Ask, “Why Can’t I Fix My Property Up Myself? (DIY)”

In America, the average age of a home is around 40 years & a commercial building is 50 years old. With that in mind, it can be easy to see that infrastructure is subject to maintenance that only the flames can exacerbate. However, it isn’t that simple to fix it yourself.

You certainly can approach a damaged property DIY style. Keep in mind that you are dealing with hazardous chemicals & materials of all types that developed after being scorched by flames. You could clean the wrong material with the wrong product if you are not properly trained. Rather than saving money, you would be spending more time & money than if you had called emergency response technicians immediately to do the job. However, if you feel that your cleaning methods are the way to go, we would advise you to at least talk to certified disaster mitigation experts beforehand.

Before you do that, remember that effectively treating a damaged property involves a flexible approach to materials. You can’t just have any service contractor come out to your property, inspect and fix the problem immediately. You need a service that thoroughly cleans up the toxic minerals left from this disaster. Not only will there be environmental & health consequences when not appropriately restored, but they will also cost more. As the saying goes, “don’t go for the cheap option in the short term, as you might end up paying more in the long run.”

Frequently Asked Questions

Do You Allow Fire Insurance to Cover Your Services?

The short answer is “Yes.” Unless your property was damaged by arson or it was vacant for a month or longer, you will most likely be covered. Fire insurance is included in most coverage plans. It all depends on the policy limit of the insurer.

Does Fire Insurance for a Homeowner Also Cover Water Damage Remediation & Mold Removal?

The answer is, “it depends.” If your insurance sees that the circumstance was preventable, they will not cover it. Typically, this is the case for mold that formed as a result of preventable sources such as a leaky pipe. On the other hand, most board up services come included with an unforeseen event such as a fire. Therefore, boarding up services can be bundled up in the fire damage restoration job your contractors are hired to fix.

What Is The First Thing I Should Do As Soon As the Flames Are Out?

Besides thanking the fire brigade, you should call your insurance to submit a house fire claim if you are a homeowner. Once there, they will provide instructions on what needs to be done in regards to your damaged home & getting in touch with a restoration team like ourselves.

How Long Does it Take to Restore My Home or Business?

Unfortunately, we cannot give a specific length of time as it all depends on the nature of the problem. Before restoration professionals such as ourselves can come in to do our work, local authorities and insurance representatives will need to come in to inspect beforehand.

Should I Move Out of My Home While It is Being Restored?

Depending on your insurance, you may be covered when staying at a hotel, bed, and breakfast, or another home during the restoration process. However, we at The Fire Restoration Team will allow the occupants to stay if the degree of damage and the property’s layout permits it. Lastly, we also want to make sure you are comfortable with your decision. Therefore, we will support the recommendations you give.

If I am Not a Homeowner, How Would Cleanup Services be Insured (i.e. Commercial Property, Apartment Building?

If you are a business, it works in much the same way as a homeowner. However, if you rent a property, then it would depend on your renters’ insurance. Talk to them on how you would be covered.

Even if the fire damage is small, Would I Still Need Repair Services?

As long as there are smoke and flames, there is always a possibility of soot and toxic/odor lingering, therefore causing damage that can become permanent to your property and body. Moreover, act fast by contacting certified restoration technicians.

What not to do after fire damage?

Do NOT enter the fire-damaged building as soon as the firefighters clear out the fire. They will tell you whether your utilities are safe to use or not. Even if they give the green light to enter, hidden but hazardous components and toxic chemicals can still be fuming after a fire is often put out. To be safe, wait for professionals like us to come and inspect the property, as we often have ETAs within one hour.

How do you deal with the aftermath of a house fire?

Before anything, stay calm. Deep breathing and not letting your emotions and impulses can help a lot. Never forget that object is replaceable. Make sure everyone is safe and in a secure place until emergency services come. TFRT will arrive immediately after you make the phone call to take care of the rest, as firefighters can only do so much when they service many emergencies throughout the day.

What is salvageable after a fire?

Any object sturdy enough to survive triple digits of heat and flames without being susceptible to water & smoke is salvageable. Some stain cleaning may be necessary, but there are tons of products that you or we can use to resolve the issue.
