Inspection and Fire Damage Process
There is a good chance that the fire damaged your building’s electrical components. It is possible that your home or business is no longer safe due to these compromised components. Wait for the Fire Marshal to clear the building for access before you go back inside. A licensed professional will have to examine the electrical system and natural gas system.
The inspection process also includes taking photos, so the damage can be documented for insurance purposes. Our Courtesy Care team can even provide power by way of a generator until the electricity is back on. If necessary, we will also board up and tarp portions of the roof to guard against rain, sleet, hail, etc. This is the structural protection your building needs following this unfortunate event in order to prevent even more damage.
Tending to Water Damage
There is a chance that the fire has caused water damage. Our team will remove the water and perform drying as necessary. If water damage is the result of the firefighters’ work to put out the flames, we will eliminate the leftover standing water. Our team will also dry the furniture, carpets, and flooring.
The Drying Process
Our team places plastic beneath the furniture legs to cover the dry portions. The drying process subsequently occurs without any additional moisture. Our team also makes use of dehumidifiers and fans to hasten the drying process. Our team will combat mold growth by eliminating wet insulation and drywall. We take the extra step of examining the wood framing behind the drywall to determine if its integrity has been compromised by moisture. If moisture is present, such interior materials will have to be removed prior to the installation of new drywall. Our fire & smoke damage experts go to these lengths to prevent the material within the walls from developing mold.
