What to Expect During Fire Damage Restoration

The Fire Damage Restoration Process
The Fire Damage Restoration Process

Fire damage has a way of leaving behind a permanent imprint on our minds. Not only is it dangerous, but the process can also be rather difficult if the right home restoration company isn't contacted. Typically, a fire damage restoration process can include a wide range of services.

Here is an overview of what you can expect when you hire a fire damage restoration service in South Jersey.

1. The Initial Contact

When you contact a company such as Mammoth Restoration, we determine what you need on the call and send out our emergency teams right away. If you haven't contacted the fire department yet, we do that on your behalf as we rush over to you.

The goal of contacting us quickly is so the restoration process can begin as soon as the fire department is done, so as to recover as much as possible. One of our first actions is to secure your property by boarding up any broken windows and/or doors. Many times there is also a need to tarp the roof to prevent further damage from the elements.

2. Assessment

We will then assess the extent of fire, smoke and, water damage. This involves determining the damage's radius and how badly your home and contents have been affected.

3. Clean Up Begins

Once our assessment has been completed, we move on to cleaning the smoke residue, debris, and soot. Everything is inventoried and organized for easy identification and recovery.

4. Removing Odors

Once all of the demolition has been done and everything has been cleaned and inventoried, we remove lingering odors in the property. Odor removal related to contents is typically done off-site at our facility. This includes sanitizing and deodorizing all contents such as garments, bedding, curtains, carpets, furniture, and more. Items damaged beyond repair are disposed of once there is an agreement with the insurance company.

5. Repair/Renovation

With your help, we determine the extent of repairs that need to be made. We also determine what needs to be replaced and what can be restored. This includes wallpaper, cabinets, carpets, furniture, and more. Communication with your insurance carrier is key here. We communicate with the client and insurance company representatives, helping both parties come to a mutual agreement.

Over the past 25 years of working in the property damage restoration industry, we have developed an efficient process to keep everyone apprised of our progress throughout the life of the project. This leads to improved quality and pleased customers and insurance professionals.
