Strategies for Optimal Fire Damage Cleanup
Strategy #1: Evaluation of Damage
Our experts examine the amount of heat that was generated during the fire that caused damage to your possessions, fixtures, and structure. They also find the heat line passing through the wall since this indicates that the drywall’s structural integrity has been affected.
Our technicians also analyze plumbing chases, duct work, and wall cavities to verify whether these sections have suffered fire damage. Additionally, equipment such as a borescope is used for tracing fire damage without the need to take apart a structure. Similarly, thermal imaging cameras are used for detecting hidden warmer areas that indicate possible locations where fire damage has occurred.
Strategy #2: Analysis of Smoke Damage
Our technicians examine the locations where soot and smoke traveled, such as whether smoke made it into your home’s HVAC system, attic, or basement or crawlspaces. Other information considered include the length of time that the structure was exposed to soot and smoke. This fact tells us how deeply odors and smoke residue have seeped into porous items.
Our experts also check the intensity and concentration of smoke odors. For instance, in a small room, the smoke odors tend to be more concentrated and intense. In addition, items that burned are analyzed since odors are different depending on the materials burned. such as plastic, protein, or wood.
Our professionals measure both chemical and particulate residue as part of their comprehensive examination of contamination, which helps them utilize more effective cleaning strategies.
