Spotlight on Fire Damage: Key Steps in the Restoration Process

Fire incidents can be devastating. After the initial shock and relief that no life was lost, the daunting task of cleaning up and restoring the property begins. This is where Bolden's, an industry-leading property restoration firm, comes into the picture. Bolden's specializes in fire damage restoration amongst other restoration services. This blog post aims to walk you through the key steps taken in the fire damage restoration process in a bid to give you a clearer picture of the journey towards reclaiming your property.

Understanding Fire Damage

Before we delve into the steps involved in fire damage restoration, it's crucial to understand the levels of damage your property could have sustained. Fire damage isn't just about scorched walls. It extends to smoke damage, water damage from fire extinguishing efforts, and structural damage to the building. These elements have to be addressed individually for successful fire damage restoration.

Steps to Fire Damage Restoration

  1. Emergency Contact

    Bolden's operates around the clock, demonstrating our commitment to serving our clients in times of emergency. Once we get your call, our team gets prepared to take immediate action to prevent further damage to your property.

  2. Assessment

    Upon arrival, the Boldens team conducts a thorough inspection to assess the extent of fire, smoke, and soot damage. This step is crucial for developing an effective plan of action.

  3. Secure the Property

    To prevent further damage – like exposure to weather elements or unauthorized entry, the team will board up missing windows and walls and tarp damaged roofs as needed.

  4. Water Removal and Drying

    If there's water damage as a result of firefighting efforts, we proceed with water removal immediately to prevent further destruction and mold growth. We use dehumidifiers and air movers for drying.

  5. Soot and Smoke Cleaning

    The Bolden's team employs specialized techniques to remove soot and smoke from ceilings, walls, and other surfaces.

  6. Cleaning and Repair

    After removing soot and smoke particles, we clean all restorable items and structures. We deploy a variety of cleaning techniques to restore your property to pre-fire condition.

    This is the final step, returning your home or place of business to its pre-fire condition. Restoration may involve minor repairs, such as painting and replacing drywall, or it may entail major repairs, such as the reconstruction of various areas or rooms.
