Which is why we provide a reliable and friendly emergency fire damage cleaning service. Once the relevant emergency services have given the all clear to enter the property, we’ll take charge of the situation to ensure the fire damage is dealt with quickly to prevent any further damage.
Our technicians are often praised for their empathetic approach in emergency situations. The team are all highly trained and will ensure you are kept well informed throughout.
When dealing with both fire and water damage, safety is our priority. Safety procedures are adhered to at all times and all technicians will wear full Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). A Risk Assessment Method Statement (RAMS) will be produced prior to undertaking any works.
In the event of a fire, there are different types of damage that can occur. These can damage the structure of the building, as well as having a detrimental impact on people’s health. They need to be dealt with quickly in order to minimise the risk of any secondary damage.
Water damage can be as a result of the water used to put out the fire, including sprinklers, as well as fire extinguishers.
Fire water needs to be treated as contaminated water as it will contain harmful substances, as well as possibly containing sewage water.
Fire damage is the damage caused by the actual fire. This includes damage to the building and furniture.
Soot and smoke are formed as a result of a fire. When there is a fire and porous materials expand, the pores will open. Soot, smoke and odours can then enter. Once the material has cooled down, the pores will close again and these substances will become trapped. This means if there is an increase in temperature later on, the pours can open again and release them back into your environment.
This extends to other areas not directly affected by the fire, but those where smoke has travelled to.
It is therefore imperative that all materials are thoroughly cleaned, to ensure all traces of soot and smoke are removed. This needs to be carried out by a fire damage cleanup company as they will have the knowledge and expertise to ensure all areas are fully remediated.
If the fire and water damage are not dealt with quickly, this can lead to secondary damage. Secondary damage is not caused by the actual incident, it is a result of the initial damage.
Smoke, ash and soot removal need to be completed swiftly. They are all acidic and can continue to cause damage to all different surfaces they come into contact with, including walls, ceilings, floors and furniture.
If water damage is not fully dried out, it can result in materials rotting and expanding, potentially damaging the structure of a building. As well as providing ideal conditions for mould growth.
There is always a risk of electrical faults, with both fire and water damage. This can be very dangerous, so it is always best to ensure these are assessed by a professional.
Fire damage can result in a building becoming unsafe. It can damage the structure, causing floors, walls and ceilings to collapse as well as creating falling debris.
Soot, ash and smoke are formed as a result of a fire and can cause health problems.
The impact of fire damage on your health should never be underestimated.
Inhaling smoke and soot can cause irreparable damage to your lungs. You can inhale these without even being aware of it. This can lead to respiratory problems, which can be fatal, as well as skin and eye irritation.
