Fire Damage Restoration FAQs
What damage can fire cause in a home or business?
Fire and smoke damage can devastate your property fast and wreak havoc through your home or business. But, most importantly, fire can lead to structural damage. It can even go through precious photographs, important documents, and family heirlooms.
Smoke will create toxic particles or soot that go into the air after a fire. Eventually, they can come back down and land on all your possessions in the home.
Some common toxins that damage your home are:
- Carbon Monoxide
- Sulfuric acid
- Lead and other heavy metals
Fire damage in your home or business can leave you feeling stressed.
What is fire damage restoration?
Fire damage restoration is a process where professionals handle the repairs of your property. Our goal is to bring your business or home back to its past glory. There is more to our strategy than simply cleaning and rebuilding the structure.
At CMS Restoration, we carefully handle every aspect of the process, including but not limited to:
- Assessment of the damage
- Securing the property
- Removal of debris and water
- Sanitize and remove smoke
- Repair and Restoration
We also provide interior and exterior building repair contractor services. For instance, we can fully restore electrical, plumbing, drywall, roofing, flooring, and more. We work to get your home or business as close to new again as possible:
An electrician specializing in fire restoration can detect old, melted, or damaged wiring. The breaker box, outlets, and fixtures will also need replacing.
It is crucial to have drywall professionals decide if any drywall can be clean and saved. Likewise, we decide what pieces may be easier to replace. Yet, sometimes we will also need to replace the wooden studs and install new insulation.
Flooring professionals can replace carpet, wood, laminate, and vinyl flooring. Also, a flooring professional will replace any charred wood subflooring.
We may use a plumbing specialist to inspect if there were any damages to the plumbing pipes in the property. Hopefully, some of the significant underground lines may have survived the fire. The fixtures in your kitchen or bathroom sinks will need inspecting and repaired if necessary. Also, it is essential to check that your faucets are all working correctly.
How long does it take to repair fire damage?
We will determine how long the restoration process will take depending on the extent of the fire damage to your property. For example, if there was only damage to one room, it could take several days to repair.
However, if the damage consumes most of your structure, it will take several months at least to rebuild and repair.
Why is it important to fix fire damage as soon as possible?
It is essential to repair fire damage as soon as you can. There is always the risk of a fire starting up again. Besides, mold and mildew can form after putting out the fire. Other than destructive damage to the building, there are dangers to your health.
Some damages from fire that could result in respiratory issues include:
- Carbon Dioxide:forms from the chemical reactions during a fire and is unsafe to breathe in large amounts.
- Carbon Monoxide:comes from chemicals in gas, wood, and oil and is bad for the lungs.
- Smoke Inhalation:can aggravate the areas of the respiratory system. It can cause trouble breathing and is the number one fire-related death.
