Emergency Fire Restoration: Your Complete Guide

Updated: Oct 27


If there is a fire, there will be smoke. The toxic combination of these two elements will lead to substantial property destruction. After a fire, the aftermath and resulting damage can be daunting and the residual impact of a fire can pose serious health risks to the home or business owner. If the damaged structure is not treated properly and with tremendous skill and scrutiny, the impending risks can be catastrophic to the inhabitants.


The primary goal in fire restoration is to remove any and all traces that the fire even happened. Fortunately, restoration services are quick in assessing, addressing and executing the cleanup needs after a fire. To wipe clean all indicators that the fire was ever there is precisely what the outcome should be once the process has been completed. The prevention of significant health risks is the prime focus and specifically the target of the assessment and cleaning procedures and protocols and the reason being that serious and even fatal health dangers are common in the after-effects of a structure fire. Health risks including breathing complications, asthma and bronchitis are prevalent. Additionally, long term and fatal conditions like cancer and heart attacks can easily occur if the toxic elements of smoke and soot are not remedied properly.


Specifically, children can be highly susceptible to the dangers of the residual toxic conditions of a fire and smoke damage. The harmful elements can have long lasting implications to their health. Brain, lung and heart conditions can go unseen for many years doing unknown levels of damage to a developing young system, if not treated properly. Simply put, there are far too many unidentified dangers present to not take this procedure seriously.


The finished product of a quality fire restoration process involves leaving the structure as it was or just as close to what it was before the fire even happened. To erase all footprints of the incident, fully involves making certain that the structure is stable and all utilities and elements within, are in full working order.
