Fire Damage Restoration

Home fires happen fast and can spread even faster; they can gain momentum with alarming speed and can cause a large amount of damage within a matter of minutes. Fire damage is very destructive because it is always a combination of fire, smoke, soot and water damage. Don’t let a fire do any more damage than it already has. Call a professional restoration firm immediately to prevent any further damage, eliminate health risks, and restore your home to its pre-damaged state.

Within minutes of fire and smoke damage, appliances and many items will discolor to a yellow hue. After a few hours, acid will stain bathrooms and many other areas of the home or business. Within days, walls will discolor permanently and items will begin to rust due to the acid residue. If left for weeks the cost of clean-up will greatly increase due to all the additional damage that has occurred. Soot residue will be layered throughout the home, plus the interior, appliances and furnishings can be permanently damaged by the acid left behind.

The damage that the fire inflicts on you and your property can go on long after the last flames have been doused. Fire produces thick clouds of smoke and soot debris and caustic substances that can threaten the building’s structure, its contents and the people occupying it. Lingering traces of soot leave a burnt smell in the air that permeates everything that enters the house. You may not notice it immediately, but the smoke’s acidic components corrode metals, eat away wood, discolor textiles and can even cause skin irritation.

Fire restoration technicians require training, skill and experience

Water Damage Minneapolis™ has lots of experience dealing with fire and water restoration in homes, apartments and commercial buildings. Our crews use only the most recent and effective means in treating these types of disasters. Even a small fire can produce smoke and soot that will spread into every little nook and cranny and become more intense as the humidity increases. Without the proper equipment it is impossible to remove the smell left by the smoke and soot. Our trained technicians utilize large HEPA certified vacuums and thermal fogging machines that effectively remove all traces of the burnt smell.

Our trained technicians also know how to properly inspect a home in order to uncover problem areas like damp materials and ash. Damp materials can foster mold growth, while ash can corrode metal, etch glass, and if left untreated, cause a strong, unpleasant odor. The restoration technicians at Water Damage Minneapolis™ remove the source of the odor, clean any items that can be salvaged and can even remove residual damage from a prior disaster.
