The thought of a fire is truly terrifying because of the vast amount of damage it can cause in an instant.
The fire itself can power through homes and commercial buildings, causing very deep and extensive damage to the building and objects within.
The damage is not done when the fire is out as smoke, soot, and other corrosive byproducts will continue to make the damage worse until the restoration can begin. You must call for professional restoration services immediately after the fire department leaves your property to help stop the spread of the damage.
At Target Restoration, we provide fire and smoke damage restoration services to restore and rebuild residential and commercial properties affected by fire in Austin, TX. Our technicians will be on-site quickly to evaluate the damage and create a restoration plan that includes soot cleanup, deodorization, and restoration of damaged materials. As a licensed general contractor, we can also provide construction services to repair severe structural damage.
Emergency Fire Damage Response
When a fire occurs, time is of the essence because corrosive byproducts will make the damage worse in the aftermath of the fire. Smoke and soot can spread to new areas of the building after the fire is out and result in a higher volume of damage than the fire itself.
If the home or building has sustained structural or exterior damage, it is not only vulnerable to additional damage from outside elements, but it is also at risk for collapse. Our technicians will arrive on the scene quickly to stabilize and secure heavily damaged buildings and begin the pre-cleaning process to avoid permanent damage from corrosive byproducts.
Our technicians at Target Restoration are licensed and certified by the IICRC to provide fire damage restoration in homes and commercial buildings. Our staff includes Master Fire Restorers that have earned this title by completing at least 7 years of IICRC training, as well as licensed general contractors ready to provide complete construction services if necessary.
Fire Damage Restoration Process
The damage caused by a fire is often deep, expansive, and multi-layered, leaving your property an overwhelming mess.
Our technicians will secure your property to prevent additional damage and begin the cleanup and evaluation of damaged materials.
We will help determine if materials damaged by the fire, smoke, or soot can be saved or if they must be removed and disposed of. We will work to clear unsalvageable materials from your property and save what can be restored with our advanced techniques.
Our complete fire damage restoration services include the following:
- Content Cleaning and Restoration: Fire, smoke, and soot can cause very serious damage to furniture, clothing, electronics, artwork, documents, and other items found in a home or building. Our technicians will quickly identify what can be saved and provide cleaning and restoration to restore your damaged items.
- Soot Removal: Soot is an acidic byproduct from fire and smoke that spreads and settles after the fire is extinguished. Furniture, various personal items, and household surfaces can experience tarnishing and etching from soot and without proper cleaning, this can permanently damage your affected items. Soot is also a major health hazard because it pollutes the air. Our technicians use chem sponges to clean non-porous objects as well as thermal fogging to extract soot from porous materials.
- Smoke Odor Removal: The odor from smoke is one of the more annoying effects of a fire because the smell is so hard to eliminate. Smoke odors can get absorbed in various objects and materials, causing it to linger long after the fire. We use ozone treatments and thermal fogging to effectively extract smoke odor from the affected materials.
- Reconstruction: The damage to the structure of a home or building is often quite severe after a fire. We are a licensed general contractor that can provide complete exterior and interior reconstruction to repair the damage caused by fire and smoke. Our technicians can handle every element of the reconstruction inside and out to ensure your home or building gets back to its original state. We will also use building materials and designs that are consistent with the architecture of your home or building, including historic homes.
