Fire Damage Restoration
Even the smallest fire can create significant property damage or loss of business. Depending on the source, clean-up and restoration can vary and require meticulous care.
We are on call 24/7 for Fire Damage Restoration
Soot particles can quickly spread throughout the area and settle on surfaces throughout the property. Prolonged exposure increases the chances of more severe damage. When necessary, tear out of damaged ceilings, walls and floors is done and treatment may include thorough cleaning and sanitation, smoke and odor removal, professional deodorization and encapsulation.
Water Extraction & Dry Out
If necessary, we will remove water associated with extinguishing the fire. After pumping or extracting out the water, we use commercial grade air movers and dehumidifiers to dry out areas and materials that can be salvaged. Dry out may take several days depending on the extent of the water damage.
If removal of ceilings, walls and/or floors is necessary your contractor will be happy you called in Tri-State Restoration. We always take the time to remove nails and screws and leave our work area clean and ready for reconstruction.
Deodorize, Sanitize and Encapsulate
Our fire damage restoration technicians use specialized equipment like air scrubbers and ozone treatments to treat the structure and personal property affected. If there was water damage due to firefighting efforts, we sanitize the area to prevent mold growth. We can also deodorize affected furniture, fabric, and other materials that were exposed if necessary.
Often when there is fire damage, personal property contents of a home or office need to be removed and stored while the restoration and reconstruction process takes place. We can arrange for a portable storage unit to be placed on site so you still have access and possession of your property.
Ultrasonic cleaning is a very efficient form of cleaning where dirt and soot particles are completely and rapidly removed from a variety of objects. It is a process that uses ultrasound to agitate a fluid. The items are submerged in a tank. The sound waves create a gentle yet powerful scrubbing brush action in the fluid that not only cleans surfaces of the objects deep into crevices as well.
