Fires can be terrifying, because they can instantly cause a vast amount of damage.
A fire works its way throughout properties, extensively damaging the building itself in addition to any belongings inside.
Further damage ensues when corrosive byproducts, such as soot and smoke, affect the property even more, and this damage will only get worse with more time. Knowing this, it is crucial that you call for professional restoration services right after your local fire department has extinguished the fire.
Target Restoration provides homes and buildings affected by fires in Houston, TX with fire and smoke damage restoration services. With these services, we will rebuild and restore your property after a fire. Our technicians arrive to your property immediately to assess the damage and develop a restoration plan. The plan will include restoration of damaged materials, deodorization, and soot cleanup. We, as a licensed general contractor, can also conduct reconstruction to have severe structural damage repaired.
Emergency Fire Damage Response
Immediate action is important because corrosive byproducts worsen damage in a fire’s aftermath. Soot and smoke will damage new areas as they spread, causing even more damage than the fire did.
When a property suffers exterior or structural damage, there’s a chance the building can collapse. Upon our arrival, we will stabilize your property while also starting the pre-cleaning process. This will prevent corrosive byproduct damage from becoming permanent.
With licensing and IICRC certification, Target Restoration‘s technicians can conduct fire damage restoration for residential and commercial properties. We employ a staff that has Master Fire Restorers, who earn such a title by doing a minimum of 7 years of training. Our staff also includes licensed general contractors who do construction when needed.
Fire Damage Restoration Process
Fires often cause multi-layered, expansive, deep damage that makes your property a massive mess.
To prevent your property from sustaining additional damage, we immediately secure your home or business. Furthermore, we start to clean and evaluate damaged materials.
Our technicians will figure out what damaged materials can be salvaged. Any items that are not salvageable are removed from your property. What can be saved will be saved using advanced cleaning and restoration techniques.
The following are included within our fire damage restoration services:
- Content Cleaning and Restoration: Serious damage can be done to your furniture, documents, and other belongings when affected by a fire, smoke, and/or soot. We will determine what items can be salvaged and restore them.
- Soot Removal: Smoke will spread and settle on your property even after the fire has been extinguished. Likewise, soot, which is an acidic byproduct of a fire, will cause damage following a fire. Both byproducts can cause tarnishing and etching to household surfaces, furniture, and personal content. Furthermore, soot is hazardous to your health and pollutes the air. By using chem sponges, we can clean non-porous materials. Additionally, thermal fogging will be used to remove soot from any porous materials it affects.
- Smoke Odor Removal: Smoke odor is difficult to remove and can become absorbed by household objects and building materials. With thermal fogging and ozone treatments, we are able to extract smoke odor.
- Reconstruction: A lot of times, any structural damage to a property after a fire is significant. As a licensed general contractor, we are permitted to perform reconstruction to rebuild interiors and exteriors of homes and buildings. In addition, we make sure to use only building materials that fit your property’s design.
