Steps To Restore Your Home After A Fire

Expert fire damage remediation includes many steps to restore your Billings home and property following a fire. Faithful Disaster Restoration will be there every step of the way during any fire damage disaster. Here are some of the general steps we take to restore your home following a fire:


Step 1: Emergency Response

Depending on the severity of the fire, every minute that passes has the potential to cause more damage to your home. This is why it is so important that you choose a fire damage specialist capable of responding to your emergency quickly and proficiently. With our 24-hour phone service, you can call us at any time and we will be ready to respond.

Step 2: Inspection and Pretesting

A Faithful Disaster Restoration certified technician will arrive at the scene and begin to pretest while inspecting the property to determine the extent of the fire damage. This inspection will determine the scope of cleaning needed, and plan out the restoration and repair process.  We will test the soot to determine which type of smoke damage occurred. Cleaning will be based on the information identified during the fire damage pretesting. 

Step 3: Temporary Protection and Board-Up

Holes in walls, ceilings, and floors can allow additional damage to your home and property. To prevent any further loss and damage, temporary protection, use of tarps, and board-up may be required. Faithful Disaster Restoration will be sure to keep your home secured, and will ensure proper and efficient board up.

Step 4: Fire, Smoke, and Soot Cleanup

The cleanup part of the restoration process begins with removal of smoke, dust, and soot from surfaces of your home. After sustaining fire damage, your property will look dark, stained, and charred. Even walls and surfaces that were not in the same room as the fire can be damaged and dirty. Special cleaning agents and equipment must be used to adequately remove soot and smoke. Our team is trained in proper cleanup and has the equipment and tools necessary to get everything cleaned as quickly as possible. 

Step 5: Smoke Odor Removal

Smoke leaves lingering odors than can travel throughout the entire home. Smoke can permeate walls and surfaces leaving unseen odors. Our professionals will neutralize and remove odor from your home, leaving your home smelling fresh and clean and making the air quality safe and breathable.
