Our Fire Restoration Process
From start to finish, our team handles your fire damage repairs with the highest level of care:
1. Immediately Stabilize the Site & Contain the Area
We hit the ground running and work to stabilize the site for a safe working area. In many cases, fire damage includes water damage caused by sprinklers and fire hoses. Site stabilization and containment include the removal of any standing water and waterlogged materials at risk for the development of mold.
2. Assess the Damage & Determine the Most Effective Restoration Procedures
With over 20 years of experience serving the region, we quickly assess the reach of the flames and the smoke damage from your fire to determine the fastest and most effective solutions for rapid restoration.
3. Protect & Secure Any Damaged Property
Fires often destroy windows and doors, leaving your property exposed to the elements and at risk for theft, vandalism and trespassers. We erect temporary fencing and board gaps in the perimeter of your building to protect the site until your fire and smoke damage restoration is complete.
4. Initiate Controlled Demolition & Remove Debris
Our experts are trained in precise, controlled demolition to preserve your remaining property and prevent further damage. Emergency restoration after a fire includes removal of any carpeting, ceiling tile, drywall and other unsalvageable materials damaged by flames or water or affected by smoke damage from the fire.
5. Completely Treat & Clean Soot and Smoke
In many instances, items that appear damaged can be salvaged with professional care. At URI, our emergency restoration after fire damage comprises services such as cleaning and sanitation to reduce your losses, including cleaning soot from electronics and eliminating smoke odors.
6. Clean Ducts & Decontaminate Indoor Air Quality
Your HVAC system is essential to employee and guest health. Because fires can fill it with hazardous substances, we clean the ducting through your entire building to make sure everyone breathes clean air when they return to work.
7. Provide Complete Structural Restoration
We provide the full range of general construction services to complete your fire damage repairs, including project management services, inspections, appraisals and estimates for repairs. Our team will communicate with your insurance company to get a resolution for your claim.
