Fire Damage Restoration in Vancouver
Fire is something no one wants to deal with, but Fresh Start Restoration can immediately assist you and guide you through every step of the fire damage restoration process. It is important to know that a fire damage has to be carefully and quickly addressed.
The IICRC (Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification), a globally recognized leader in all types of remediation, identifies these time windows:
- Within minutes
Porous materials and synthetics must be immediately addressed to prevent permanent discoloration.
- Within hours to days
Wooden furniture, flooring, painted walls, and clothing can become permanently stained if not addressed within hours to days of damage, and metal surfaces will at this point begin to rust, pit, and corrode, requiring refinishing or replacement.
- Within weeks
Prolonged soot exposure will embed itself in the fibers and surfaces, resulting in a longer, more costly restoration with a higher likelihood of replacement.
Necessary cleanup measures will depend on temperature, type of fire (smoldering or blazing), as well as materials burned. Further complicating matters, smoke particles can easily penetrate any crack and crevice, and left untreated, leave particles behind that will smell of smoke odor for months after a fire. Proper ventilation, debris removal, and cleaning and odor neutralizing efforts are critical to saving as many of your belongings as possible. Another thing to consider is that both fire and water damage restoration are needed after a fire has taken place.
