Fire Damage Restoration
Protect your property from the lingering effects of fire damage by calling us right away.
Time is of the essence when dealing with damage from a fire. So don’t delay in calling Dennis Emergency Restoration for help, we certainly won’t delay in responding to your call. In fact, we can typically arrive on site within an hour, even if you call in the middle of the night. Please don’t hesitate to place an emergency call even if the fire was relatively minor, as soot and smoke damage may still be extensive and require immediate attention.
What You Need to Know About Soot Damage
As a fire burns, it releases acidic soot residue and volatile vapors that spread throughout the burning structure. Layers of this residue will build up on every imaginable surface, sometimes cooling into a lacquer-like substance that is very difficult to remove. The longer this acidic residue sits the more damage it will do:
- Within minutes plastics and highly porous materials like marble will discolor.
- Within hours tile grout will become stained, countertops and appliances can yellow, and uncoated metals will begin to tarnish.
- Within days permanent damage will occur to painted walls, vinyl flooring, and upholstery. Metals may corrode and wood will need refinishing.
- Within weeks synthetic carpets will be permanently discolored and glass will be severely etched and pitted.
The good news is that Dennis Emergency Restoration will do everything in our power to help you keep your restoration costs down. We do this by sending certified fire damage remediation technicians to your property right away to begin removing acidic sooty residue from various surfaces inside your home as quickly and thoroughly as possible.
In addition to damage from acidic residue, you will also need to deal with lingering smoke odors, water damage from firefighting efforts, and of course the removal and replacement of any materials burned or otherwise damaged by the fire itself. Fortunately, Dennis Emergency Restoration can handle all of these activities for you. We follow industry best practices for smoke and water damage remediation as per the IICRC, and we can also offer expert reconstruction services to replace damaged structural materials and other elements.
