How to Protect Your Home After Fire Damage

If your home has fallen prey to fire damage, it is important for you to address the issue immediately. As long as fire damage remains in your home, you are at risk from toxic elements.

Do not, under any circumstance, try to wipe down walls, eat food that was exposed to the fire, or turn on appliances such as air conditioners. Instead, open all your windows and move any pets or children to a safe, smoke-free environment. You may also want to make a list of any items in your home that will need to be replaced.

Fire Restoration FAQ

Read our FAQs below for insight on what's involved and when to act.

When should a business owner consider fire restoration services?

  • In the aftermath of a disaster, it can be difficult for home or business owners to get their bearings. Before long though, the shock will wear off and reality will begin to set in. It’s not easy recovering when a building is ravaged by open flames. However, most people are just worried about cleaning up the visible debris, discounting the major problems that ash and soot can cause. If the home or business owner doesn’t act within a day or two of the disaster, residue ash can quickly cause permanent damage.

What will happen to a building if the response is not immediate?

  • Ash is highly acidic and prone to dispersing through the air when it is disturbed, which can be as easy as simply breathing on it. When swept up into the air, the building’s climate control system will pick it up and blanket entire rooms, making it much more difficult to get rid of. Because it is acidic, it will eat away at a number of materials if it sits for long, especially glass, metal, and drywall. Within a couple days, ash can permanently etch glass, including windows, weakening them considerably and forcing replacement. During this time, any drywall covered in ash can permanently discolor, turning to a sickly yellow and becoming a major eyesore. After a couple of weeks, ash will corrode metals, which can result in water leaks or other expensive problems. And ash is not just a risk to the building. It can also irritate lungs, throats, and eyes, resulting in breathing difficulty, coughing, sneezing, and general discomfort. This is particularly troublesome for children with asthma, as the ash can trigger an attack.

How do technicians perform fire restoration services?

  • Most of the effort technicians put into the restoration are spent on cleaning up the building. A thorough cleanup is the only way to completely rid the building of ash and debris so the work is labor intensive. Technicians will first inspect the property to gauge where cleanup is needed the most and start there, working over every surface that may have been affected by the disaster. Professionals use special agents that are designed to neutralize ash and particles and apply them to walls, ceilings, countertops, furniture, and anything else that may be under siege by damaging ash and soot. Odors are another issue that needs to be dealt with as they can seep through walls and deposit on inaccessible areas. To deal with this, professionals sometimes employ thermal foggers, which are machines that release clouds of odor-neutralizing particles. These particles can go anywhere the smoke goes, wiping them out in spots that are out of reach.

Why should home and business owners consider certified professionals first?

  • It takes a lot of technical skill to effectively clean up the damage left behind by a disaster, and the best way for a technician to acquire this skill is by attaining certification. There is little time to waste when looking for a professional to clean up the damage and certification can provide an effective shorthand method in tracking one down.

Happy Customers

  • He was courteous, professional, and gave me an easy solution.

    “The blizzard of 2016 hit while I was out of town on business. My neighbors shared that while I would be able to get into the cul-de-sac my driveway had almost 3 feet of snow piled high that was now like concrete. I reached out to Abe while I was on the road and shared my situation. He was courteous, professional, and gave me an easy solution. By the time I arrived home the next day, he had personally gone to my home with his team, a plow, backhoe, and shovel and dug me out, driveway, walkway and all. Then, the office sent me photos so I could see the quality of the work and that it was completed. (Who does that?!?) I highly recommend Property Solutions and would call them again for snow removal and general contractor work.”

    Lisa M.

  • The job was done on time, everything was handled very professionally, they even sent a cleaning team to clean everything after the job was done.

    “Property Solutions company were really fantastic. After the bathroom pipe broke the whole condo was flooded. They came the same day to give me a quote and it was actually lower than all the quotes I got from other contractors. The job was done on time, everything was handled very professionally, they even sent a cleaning team to clean everything after the job was done. They were recommended to me by a friend, who also used their services a few times and was very pleased. Now I am happy to recommend them to my other fiends as well.”

    “I have no words to express how grateful and thankful I was to have Property Solutions respond to me within 45 minutes to take care of my mother's home in Alexandria.”

  • Everyone I talked to highly recommends them as well. Good company.

    “I am very thankful I found this company. They fixed my neighbor's house and they were really happy about their remodel. When my house flooded I called them. The crew came super quick, were very careful with removing furniture that wasn’t damaged. I have some antique pieces and it was important to me. Now my kitchen and dining look much better than they did before the flood happened. I know they did work for a lot of people in our neighborhood and everyone I talked to highly recommends them as well. Good company.”
