Potential risks to your home or business from smoke after a fire:
It is highly recommended that smoke or soot damage should be cleaned up as soon as possible to prevent secondary damage to your property. Smoke particles left on surfaces will react with the environment, especially where water moisture is present in the air, and become acidic.
The acidic by-product will etch and ‘eat’ into a wide range of surfaces increasing the chance of a lingering odour even after redecoration. In addition as unprotected wood surfaces expand and contract the longer smoke or soot is present the further this will work its way into the wood increasing the cost of sanding down and redecoration if not cleaned effectively. Soot damage can also have serious adverse effects on any textile materials that are left untreated and cleaned increasing the change that they will become unsalvageable.
Our fully-qualified technicians have years of experience and use only state-of-the-art equipment to carry out a full restoration process, including odour removal, to restore your belongings and make your property safe again.

Fire damage repair
Our professional fire restoration specialists have assisted countless clients in getting their business trading again or moving back into their homes quickly following fire damage.
A property consumed by fire will not only suffer damage to its furnishings, structural integrity and any items held within in the short term before the blaze is extinguished, but there are also various time-sensitive dangers to be aware of in the aftermath.
All leftover traces of soot and smoke on the walls, floors, ceilings and contents of a room will continue to wreak havoc after a fire incident. Ash residue corrodes any surfaces it is in contact with over time – if this is not professionally cleaned quickly, furniture, walls and more will be left permanently discoloured and worn. Clothes and upholstered furniture will be unsalvageable and any wood finishes, paint etc. will need to be re-administered.

Last but certainly not least, as well as leaving behind unpleasant odours, leftover smoke particles from fire damage are very hazardous to the health of a building’s occupants. Inhaling them can block lung airways and cause serious irritation. It is important you contact a fire damage cleaning service to ensure the building is safe and will not harm you or anyone else.
We work directly with the insurance markets and have years of disaster recovery knowledge when it comes to fire damage repair. We provide a 24-hour emergency response, clean-up and building restoration programme which can be delivered at short notice.
Once you have provided us with your insurance company details we can bill them direct for the works so you will not have to wait for loss adjusters, surveyors or other trades to make appointments or visits which could delay getting you back in business by many days.

Useful and Important tips

After any fire damage situation, your primary focus should be safety:
* Is it safe to stay in the house?
* Electrical and “slip and fall” hazards are some of the most prevalent concerns.
* Only do activities that are safe for you to perform.
* Wet materials can be VERY heavy. Be careful!

Every fire damage event is a little different, and requires a unique solution, but the general process stays the same. The steps listed below illustrate our process for the “typical” fire damage emergency.

Step 1: Emergency Contact
The restoration process begins when you call the CVSS Crime Virus Scene Clean-up, which is staffed 24 hours a day. Our specialist will ask a series of questions regarding the fire damage event that will help us dispatch the nearest CVSC Professional with the appropriate equipment and resources.

Step 2: Inspection and Fire Damage Assessment
Our team will carefully inspect and test adjoining rooms of your property to determine the extent of the fire, smoke, and soot damage. This step is crucial to developing a plan of action.

Step 3: Immediate Board-Up and Roof-Tarp Service
Fire damage can often compromise windows, walls, and roofs. To maintain security and to protect against further damage, the CVSC – emergency – team can board up missing windows and walls and place tarps on damaged roofs.

Step 4: Water Removal and Drying (if water damage is present)
The water removal process begins almost immediately and removes the majority of the water. They will then use dehumidifiers and air movers to remove the remaining water and complete the drying process.

Step 5: Removal of Smoke and Soot from All Surfaces
The CVSC TEAMS use specialized equipment and techniques to remove smoke and soot from ceilings, walls, and other surfaces.

Step 6: Cleaning and Sanitizing
They will clean all of the restorable items and structures that were damaged by the fire. They use a variety of cleaning techniques to restore your belongings to pre-fire condition. They’re also trained to remove odors using industrial air scrubbers, ozone generators and fogging equipment.

Step 7: Restoration
Restoration is the final step—getting your home or business to its pre-fire condition. Restoration may involve minor repairs, such as replacing drywall, painting, and installing new carpet; or it may entail major repairs such as the reconstruction of various areas or rooms in a home or business. All CVSC teams have a list of trusted repair and building companies, ask for assistance and advice.
