Fire damage to a house comes from many directions such as kitchen grease fires, electrical malfunctions, lightning strikes, or live power lines falling on the house. The fire damage repair process includes cleaning, removing water damage such as mold and mildew, as well as sanitizing the area, and restoring the structure.
The Repair Process
Liam joins the host of Restoration Talks to explain the repair process. The first step is for the fire department to ensure the structure is safe for repair technicians to come in and work.
The damage will be soot and char from the fire in addition to the water used to quench the fire. The odor and smoke damage will have to be removed, too.
Next comes cleaning and sanitizing the area. Now the structure is ready for restoration. Restoring the structure consists of blocking off unsafe areas and rebuilding those areas. The removal of carpet, flooring, and drywall is done before replacement. Now all that needs to be done is repainting, and your house is good as new.
