Stabilizing the Structure
Fires often cause damage to the windows, walls, and roofs, so next in the course of action is making sure that your home is structurally sound. We’ll bring in tarps and boards to keep your home safe and prevent further damage while we restore it.
If water was used to end the fire in your home, we’ll clean up any water left in your home and restore any damage it may have caused. It’s important to get the water removed quickly to prevent further water damage and make sure that mold and mildew don’t have a chance to enter the picture. Our team at GRAP has experienced and certified water damage experts that will take care of drying out the water in your home.
Smoke and Soot Removal
Next, we’ll remove smoke and soot damage. This is one of the most important (and labor-intensive) parts of cleaning up after a fire. We use professional-grade equipment to remove all soot and smoke damage to all parts of your home. We’ll first scrub all of the surfaces with soot cleaners specific to the surfaces in your home. We’ll then use industrial air cleaners and various fogging techniques to clean the air. We’ll test the air at multiple points in the process to make sure that every trace of fire is gone.
