Dehumidification >> Fire Damage

Any case of fire damage that the fire department or the use of fire sprinklers have been involved will require a certain amount of Fire Damage. When a typical fire breaks out and the fire department arrives, in almost every case water will be employed to put out the fire. The utilization of the water sometimes can cause more damage than the fire itself, but of course without the water, there would be complete destruction.

  1. With immediate action following a fire some of your possessions like draperies, carpets, clothing and upholstered furniture can be refurbished. As long as these items have not suffered severe water damage or have not been scorched. And creating a Fire Damage strategy plan will help to minimize the amount of items lost. There are two types of smoke damage that fire creates, the invisible odor and the visible soot and because every fire is different it is impossible to provide a particular set of guidelines for removing odor and soot.
  2. Plastic that has sustained smoke odor will require certain cleaning products, but wood will react differently to those same cleansers. Professional Fire Damage technicians have the experience to restore a home that has sustained fire damage, but also can extract all of the moisture from the premises to begin the restoration. Homeowners that do not possess these skills may not know how to deal with different smoke odors and soot. The recommendation for removing such as smoke odors from clothing would be to take your articles to a dry cleaner, but that might not be the answer in every case.
  3. So after you clean up the damage from the fire and remove all of the soggy particles from the water damage now it's time to extract whatever moisture is left and start to Fire Damage. So the first step is what could be called the manual water extraction involving high-powered wet dry vacuum cleaners. These vacuums are considerably bigger than the ones that you buy down at your local hardware store. Because of their weight they will have to be on wheels and in extreme cases, they will be mounted on or in the back of a truck. The truck mounted vacuums will only be needed in cases of extensive Fire Damage.
  4. Once the vacuum cleaners have sucked out all of the water in your home or building that dehumidification process will begin using commercial dehumidifiers and ventilation fans to remove any residual moisture from the walls and floors of your rooms. Fire Damage cleanup professionals would make an assessment of all of the damaged inventory that will need to be restored. Some of these items may be taken to a location that is off site, they can use ozone machines to extract the smell of smoke from your personal possessions. Some of these possessions could be documents that would undergo a certain process. Or maybe you have electronic equipment that had sustained Fire Damage, this equipment would need to be taken to professionals that can deal with this.
