Fire Damage Restoration
One of the most common disasters there are, with 1,345,500 fires reported in the United States in 2015, no matter the cause, Inch Construction & Restoration is the solution. Over the years we have gained skill, expertise, and demonstrated compassion in our work making us a leader in fire restoration services and customer care.
A destructive element that can cause injury and even death, we take emergency restoration seriously. In the case of disaster whether caused naturally, intentionally or by negligence, it is important to clean, restore and get your life back on track.
When assessing the damage caused by a fire we consider a few characteristics.
- Quantity of flames
- Distribution of flames
- Ventilation of the building
- Size and surface area covered
- Thermal characteristics
Another major influencer is of course combustible materials, which can cause a smaller fire to blaze through a home in minutes.
After the initial assessment, we devise a plan of action dealing with fire, smoke and soot damage. Water damage may also be present if hoses were used to extinguish the fire. This will be dealt with first via humidifiers and air movers so mold does not grow.
Smoke and Heat Damage
Damage from both these factors can be devastating. Smoke will leave behind soot and charring, bubbling and blistering, and an unpleasant odor.
Heat is spread by the flame itself and will char and melt anything in its path.
During a fire, a room’s temperature will range between 100 degrees at floor level and 600 degrees at eye level.
Qualified fire and smoke damage removal teams like Inch Construction & Restoration will take the utmost care that we do not cause further damage when entering a home where charring, melting and structural damage has already occurred.
No Job Too Small or Too Large
When it comes to fire damage repair, no job is too small or too large for Inch Construction & Restoration. In the case of minor fires, we recommend you call us within 72 hours. After this, unexpected damage that you may not even spot at first caused by corrosive byproducts will be irreparable.
If you do plan on staying in your home after a minor blaze, air your home out, but avoid touching anything with your bare hands. Do not attempt to do cleanup directly at the site of the fire, or you could risk compounding soot residue or even harming yourself on electrical appliances that don’t show damage at first glance.
If you have suffered a major fire, evacuate the property and call us when the blaze has been extinguished. Inch Construction & Restoration team members are on call 24 hours a day, every day of the year and can arrive immediately to assess the situation.
