House fires are every homeowner’s worst nightmare. Not only does a house fire put your family’s lives at risk, but you could also potentially lose all of your prized possessions. Fortunately, there are several measures you can take to prevent house fires, as discussed in our previous blog post. But when the worst does happen, it’s best to be prepared with the knowledge of the fire restoration process from the professionals at Tom Madsen LLC.
1. Assess the Damage
Once we have deemed that the structure is safe for re-entry, our team will provide a thorough inspection to determine and document the damage. This includes both fire and smoke damage, as well as damage from the water used to extinguish the fire. We then take photos of the damaged areas to document it for your insurance company. Lastly, each room of the home is tested for soot and smoke damage through a dry chemical cleaning method.
2. Clean Up
Having developed the most effective smoke damage restoration and cleaning methods in conjunction with the use of the highest quality cleaning compounds, our team is able to remove charred stains, debris, soot deposits, and even water-damaged surfaces. Immediate cleanup is extremely important to both the structural integrity of your home as well as the health of your family. The Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration recommends having professionals do the work from day one, to avoid further damage and to completely revitalize your home.
Often, after a house fire, construction is needed as well as fire restoration. Luckily, Tom Madsen can provide both services, making it faster for you to get back into your home. Our experienced contractors know how to get the most value out of the restoration process, even if that means starting over and rebuilding a large portion of your home.
The fire restoration process is a combination of cleaning, repairing, and making tough decisions. Don’t make those decisions on your own; instead, find a company like Tom Madsen LLC that you can trust with all the tools and options needed to recover your New Jersey home.
