Probably the worst experience you’ll have as a homeowner is dealing with fire damage in Del Mar. Even if your home isn’t completely destroyed by fire, just dealing with the aftermath of any fire damage to your home is stressful – and costly. You may not be allowed to live in your home because of structural instability, or you may be cramped in one small area of your home. However the stress and anxiety, you must deal with the situation immediately. You’ll have to contact your insurance company and a fire restoration specialist.
Before any fire damage restoration work in Del Mar can commence, the damage must be inspected to assess if any structures left standing are stable and safe to enter. If a damaged area is safe to enter, it’s best to release any lingering smoke odor and gasses by opening doors and windows. If there is still a residual amount of smoke within the property, the area will require use of an air filtration device (AFD) in order to properly exhaust the smoke to the outside. An AFD unit processes the air through a series of filters, reducing the potency of the smoke odor and thus any potentially harmful effects.
Also, before actual fire damage restoration work can begin, you will have to sort through any damaged items to see if they can be salvaged or should be thrown away. Obviously, anything completely charred and burnt must be discarded, items or materials which sustained smoke and soot damage may be repairable. Once all damaged items have been removed from the structure it will be easier to determine which materials should be repaired or replaced. Materials that were damaged by smoke or soot may be more difficult to determine whether they should be repaired or replaced, it can be too expensive to repair or restore such items, and replacement might be the more cost-effective approach.
Your restoration specialist will determine the type of fire and soot damage and will plan a course of action according to that specific type of damage. Knowing the type of fire damage will help technicians to determine the proper cleaning process.
