Fire damage restoration is the only way to completely address a fire and its aftermath. Whenever a property goes up in flames–whether it’s minor or major damage–there will be lingering effects. Water used to put the flames out can combine with smoke, soot, and the contents of your structure. The result is a toxic mix of hazardous damages that make the property dangerous to occupy. 

Unfortunately, the need for fire damage restoration is quite common. Soil-Away’s specialists have seen enough fire cases to know that there are commonalities between every scenario. Call the damage restoration experts at Soil-Away today for a consultation – 603-641-6555.

Fire Damage Restoration for A Space Heater-Related Fire

One of the most common reasons for fires is space heaters. These small but powerful devices easily blend in with other appliances. We forget they are there during the hustle and bustle of everyday life. However, leaving a space heater on can lead to terrible consequences. Firefighters cite space heaters as a major cause for fire damage in homes and offices. Despite the boasts of the manufacturers regarding their safety, leaving them powered up unattended can lead to destructive blazes. One reason this occurs so often is because we overlook them.

In the event of a space heater-related fire, Soil-Away can mitigate any damages and restore your belongings to pre-fire conditions. Following the water needed to extinguish the flames, our truck-mounted extraction units can remove any standing water. In addition, our team uses powerful HEPA air scrubbers, air movers, industrial fans, and dehumidifiers to remove excessive moisture and humidity from the premises. These thorough tactics can help prevent black mold or other biohazards from developing in your surroundings.

Cooking Accidents

As another common reason for fires, cooking accidents can happen within seconds. Before you know it, your kitchen wall might be marked with soot. Heavy smoke will linger behind, contaminating everything, including your foundations and cabinets. A kitchen fire is no joke, often causing extensive damage before being put out. Once this occurs, you’ll need to retain Soil-Away’s restoration services.

Our experts will use special hydrometers and other moisture detectors to find any hidden pockets of moisture within walls or under flooring. Any walls or flooring that are beyond repair will be disposed of. In turn, we can salvage belongings by way of a strict cleaning process, which completely eliminates the fire smell and soot spots. Once everything is processed, all salvaged and restored contents will be brought back onto the premises. This process includes a post-inspection to evaluate the results of our restoration.

Aggressive Storms

A high-level storm can be responsible for creating or spreading fires. Your property, no matter when it was originally built, can suffer from water, lightning, and wind damage. All three can create electrical shorts when walls or foundations are hit with enough force. An aggressive storm spreads fire across a property, which means soot and smoke will overtake every structure in the nearby area. While you can take some precautions to avoid heavy storm damage, it is impossible to protect everything 100%. Storms are obviously chaotic and unpredictable. A freak accident is just that, which means you need a follow-up plan to address the aftermath.
