Raleigh, NC Fire Damage Cleanup and Restoration

From the downtown district to dormitories and student housing of North Carolina State University, fires can quickly spread to be traumatic and destructive events. Our central location allows us to quickly reach Raleigh homes and all of Wake County when water disasters strike. 

How Do Fire Damages Get Mitigated?

Fires can be a rapidly destructive situation, so mitigative actions are essential to creating a safe and stable environment to begin restoration as fast as possible. We work directly after first responders and communicate directly with insurance providers during mitigation actions like:

  • smoke residue removal
  • content relocation
  • air filtration
  • fire restoration
  • water removal services

Effective Soot Cleanup in Raleigh Structures

Soot is one of the most challenging hurdles for restoration after a fire loss incident. Partial combustion of fuels can create thick residues on surfaces and contents in the house. A combination of dry and wet cleaning strategies must often be used to restore hosting elements, including our potent solvents and detergents.  

Removing Smoke Odors Trapped in Raleigh Homes

Smoke can be detrimental to a property in more ways than soot particles, however. Harsh odors are another formidable obstacle our professionals must overcome, and we can do so through an intricate process of reducing the severity of malodors and ultimately neutralizing them. We have several deodorization tools in our inventory ideal for smoke odor removal.

Step 1: Emergency Contact

We are available 24 hours, 7 days a week. When you call, one of our representatives will ask a series of questions about the fire damage to your home or business. This information helps us respond immediately with all the needed equipment and resources.

Step 2: Inspection and Fire Damage Assessment

We carefully inspect and test adjoining rooms of your property to determine the extent of the fire, smoke, and soot damage. This step is crucial to developing a plan of action.

Step 3: Immediate Board-Up and Roof-Tarp Service (if needed)

Fire damage can often compromise windows, walls, and roofs. To maintain security and to protect against further damage, we can board up missing windows and walls and place tarps on damaged roofs. 

Step 4: Water Removal and Drying (if water damage is present)

The water removal process begins almost immediately and removes the majority of the water. We then use dehumidifiers and air movers to remove the remaining water and complete the drying process. 

Step 5: Removal of Smoke and Soot from All Surfaces

Your property’s ceiling, walls, floors, and other surfaces will likely have smoke and soot residue. We’ll use specialized cleaning products, equipment, and techniques to properly clean your home or business. 

Step 6: Cleaning and Sanitizing

We clean and sanitize the restorable items and structures damaged by the fire. Our professionals use a variety of cleaning techniques to restore your belongings to pre-fire condition. We’re also trained to remove odors using industrial air scrubbers and fogging equipment.

Step 7: Restoration

Restoration is the process or restoring your home or business to its pre-fire condition. Restoration may involve relatively minor repairs, such as replacing drywall and painting, or it could include significant reconstruction of entire rooms.
