Fire Damage Restoration Wichita
After a property has been damaged by fire, smoke, soot, or other perils, fire damage reconstruction is the method of returning it to its pre-loss state. Several factors, such as affected building materials, time after the actual loss, and governing code/ordinance specifications, can intensify these losses.
Fire Damage Restoration Wichita uses a thorough inspection, assessment, and testing procedure to identify and carry out a scope of work that will result in the salvage of building materials and the restoration of your home or building to its pre-loss state.
We are proud to provide an odor-free guarantee on our fire and water restoration projects based on this validated procedure and the use of specialized machinery, cleaning materials, and methods.
Steps on How to Restore Fire Damage
Your fire damage repair contractor must first obtain permission from a licensed authority before entering the property to determine the extent of the fire damage.
Otherwise, a contractor could be putting himself in a dangerous position and risking injuries.
Here's a standard look at how the fire damage repair process is carried out after they've been given access to the property:
1. Damage Assessment
The first thing a fire damage contractor would do after ensuring the property is safe to enter is assess the damage caused by the fire and subsequent water intrusion. This usually entails determining how far the flames and smoke have penetrated the building, as well as the scope of any cleanup required.
The restoration company would have a clearer understanding of the nature of the work, how long it will take, and formulating a cost estimate after completing a detailed evaluation.
2. Property Security & Debris Removal
The next step is to secure the property after the appraisal has been completed. Installing fences around the house, clearing debris from the perimeter, boarding up holes in the building, and tarping or sealing off sections of the roof to shield what's left of the property from the elements are all part of this process.
If some parts of the property were not affected by the fire, restoration professionals must ensure that this area is isolated from the fire-affected site to prevent cross-contamination.
3. Demolition, Flood Mitigation, and Drying Out
During this point, the aim is to remove water and dry out the property to prevent further mold or corrosion damage. Personal belongings will be excluded from the structure's interior. As required, damaged drywall, flooring, and other materials will be removed down to the studs.
To dry out the structure, water extraction crews can use commercial equipment. During this time, roof tarps will be maintained to prevent further water intrusion.
4. Clean-up & Smoke Extraction
The clean-up phase of a fire damage reconstruction project is the most time-consuming. To properly clean smoke and soot from interior and exterior surfaces, this move usually requires a lot of manual labor. In certain cases, it would be necessary to clean every inch of the affected area.
Smoke odor eliminator Wichita uses deodorizing agents to eliminate any residual smoke odors after careful cleaning entirely. If water damage repair has already been completed, sanitization or the application of antimicrobial chemicals may be required to prevent mold growth.
5. Building & Restoration
Doing any required fire damage repairs or rebuilding fire-damaged areas is the final step in restoring the property to its pre-loss state. During the initial evaluation of a fire and water restoration, sections of the structure can be unsalvageable, necessitating their removal and replacement.
To restore the property to pre-loss condition, this could include repairing and replacing the roof, replacing electrical, replacing and painting drywall, replacing flooring materials, replacing internal counters, fixtures, and so on.
