House Fire Clean Up for Amherst Fire Damaged Homes
Cleaning up after house fires can be a large undertaking, primarily because no two loss incidents are the same. As quickly as structure fires can develop and spread, we must stay prepared to respond immediately when extinguishment completes and the property is cleared for entry. We can begin vital mitigation and emergency services as soon as possible, which allows for the removal of standing water after extinguishment and cleaning the environment with HEPA air filtration devices like air scrubbers and hydroxyl generators.
Are Repairs Needed After Smoke Damage in Amherst Homes?
Smoke damage can have a severe effect on building materials and content within a house. Smoke and soot particles can come to rest on surfaces and degrade the finish of underlying materials. These residues are often acidic in nature, allowing for staining and marring of the material, requiring controlled demolition to resolve. Our general contractor license can enable us to remove these damaged elements and reinstall them “Like it never even happened.”

Our Fire Restoration Process
Every fire damage event is a little different and requires a unique solution, but the general process stays the same. The steps listed below illustrate our process for the “typical” fire damage emergency.
Step 1: Emergency Contact
The fire restoration process begins when you call us. Our consultant will guide you through the crisis and may ask several questions to help us better understand the type of fire damage you experienced, determining the equipment and resources needed.
Step 2: Inspection and Fire Damage Assessment
We determine the scope of the fire and smoke damage by examining the affected areas and by testing the adjoining rooms for smoke and soot damage. An accurate assessment is crucial to the planning process.
Step 3: Immediate Board-Up and Roof-Tarp Service (if needed)
In many fire damage cases, it’s necessary to board up missing windows and walls and to place tarps on a damaged roof. This helps to maintain security and to protect against further damage.
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
We use specialized equipment and techniques to remove smoke and soot from ceilings, walls, and other surfaces.
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 final step—getting your home or business to its pre-fire condition. Restoration may involve minor repairs, such as replacing drywall, painting, and installing new carpet; or it may entail major repairs such as the reconstruction of various areas or rooms in a home or business.
