Fire and Smoke Damage
First Things First: Fire Mitigation can be the start of a long process with your insurance company. Most insurance companies will send their own investigator prior to any work starting to comply with their in-house fraud departments.
Fire and a water loss?
Most fires are extinguished using water or liquids. This water instantly becomes contaminated with ash and char. To avoid secondary damage the wet materials, need to be removed as soon as possible. For more information on water loss, check out the Water Damage page.
Ash, Soot, and Smoke Odor
Ash and Soot are typically more harmful to the structure and your personal content then the heat or the flame. Smoke odor attaches itself to dust which requires us to completely clean the environment.
