Fire Damage Restoration

Rebuild Your Peace of Mind When Disaster Strikes

Fires are one of the most catastrophic disasters your home can face. With water damage from fire extinguishing efforts, caustic smoke odors, and burned belongings and infrastructure, you need a carefully coordinated fire damage restoration effort. One call to Valley Restoration immediately begins the process of recovery.

 

A Comprehensive Approach to Fire Damage

Fire damage can spread much further than it seems at first glance, and even a small fire can cause catastrophic damage to walls, electrical wiring, cabinetry, flooring, and even plumbing. There are three major types of fire damage that our restoration team will address:

  • Thermal injury to and/or destruction of belongings and infrastructure 
  • Lingering smoke and odor
  • Water damage from extinguishing the fire

No matter the extent of the damage, Valley Restoration will restore your home to its previous condition. We promise to never just sweep the damage under the rug — our priority is your long-term peace of mind, not short-term non-solutions.

24/7 Emergency Fire Damage Restoration Services

Fire restoration requires working knowledge of structural components of a building, odor control techniques, and specialized cleaning procedures and products. The Valley Restoration fire team understands how heat, smoke, and soot affect the structure, as well as any personal belongings left inside.

Our Fire Damage Restoration Process

Smoke and Soot Damage Removal

Smoke damage can spread almost as quickly as the fire itself. The Valley Restoration team will evaluate the smoke damage as soon as we arrive, and immediately begin mitigation procedures. We target five types of smoke and residue to ensure containment while replacing or restoring any damaged surfaces:

  1. Wet smoke residue: Low heat and smoldering fires that leave behind smoke webs and a sticky residue. The pungent residue requires specialized care to fully remove.
  2. Dry smoke residue: When fast fires burn at high temperatures, they leave behind powdery ash. While it doesn’t smear like wet smoke residue, it has a pungent odor.
  3. Protein residue: Kitchen fires frequently leave behind protein residue from food and oils that ruin paint and varnishes if it isn’t removed quickly. Left unchecked, this type of residue can grow rancid and spread pathogens.
  4. Fuel oil soot – When furnaces malfunction and puff back, they can distribute fuel oil soot in the space around it. This dangerous soot can spread stains, and even act as fuel for another fire. 
  5. Other residues – Fire extinguishers, chemicals from firefighters, and fingerprint powder all leave behind residue that can cause damage. 

We have thorough treatment plans to address every form of smoke residue and odor resulting from a house fire and its aftermath. Because our team looks for each type of residue, your home can avoid the long-term structural risks and odors of smoke residue.

Restoring Your Peace of Mind

Once our team ensures your property is safe enough to begin cleanup and repair work, we can then salvage and clean as many items in your home as possible. From there, any necessary demolition and cleanup work removes unsalvageable or destroyed building materials, paving the way for repairs and reconstruction to fully restore your property to its former condition.

How long does fire damage restoration take?
Depending on the size and extent of the fire damage on a given property, as well as the potential structural safety issues, fire damage restoration can take anywhere from a few weeks to a few months.

On average, fire damage restoration can take anywhere from a few weeks to a few months. Minor damage may be restored in a matter of days, while extensive damage could take up to a year in the worst residential cases. We know you want to move back into your home and start to rebuild your life.

How much does fire damage restoration cost?
The size and extent of the fire damage on a given property can complicate the cost of restoration efforts. Minor damage may be restored in a matter of days, while the worst structural damage can take up to a year to full restore, so individual restoration costs can vary greatly. Valley Restoration customers can expect a free estimate to avoid any surprise costs as well as direct correspondence and billing to insurance companies for accurate reimbursement.
Is anything salvageable after a fire?
Yes, items like clothing, glass, ceramic, hardwood flooring, and furniture can usually be salvaged if they were not directly exposed to a fire, but smoke can easily penetrate these substances. Any items salvaged after a fire should be assessed and treated by a professional.
Can smoke damage be removed?
In some cases of minor smoke damage, you may be able to wash materials like plastics, wood, and marble to remove any stains and avoid irreversible harm. But a professional fire restoration company can assess more severe smoke damage and determine whether a given item or area of the property is repairable.
What is the first thing I should do after a fire?
First and foremost, you should make sure you, your family, and anyone else on the affected property is safe. No item is worth the cost of personal safety. Once the fire is out and the property deemed safe, you may want to start cataloging salvageable items and areas of the property. However, severe structural damage can put your home and any individuals inside it at risk. Valley Restoration is available 24/7 for emergency response, to begin immediate fire restoration efforts.
