Fire damage

While fire damage can easily be seen, parts of your home or business may have soot and smoke damage in areas that aren’t noticeable.

Our teams will inspect and test the soot and residues left behind a recent fire, making sure to stabilize damaged areas and taking preventative measures before corrosion and deterioration spread throughout the structure.
The structure evaluation will be based on several factors, including:

  • Replacement Cost vs. Restoration Cost
  • Effect of Smoke and Heat
  • Loss of Use
  • Loss of Value
  • Decreased Life Expectancy of Building

Fire damage restoration fundamentals:

“Restoration golden hour” The first 24 to 48 hours after fire damage are known as the “golden hours” of recovery. An effective emergency response that quickly stabilizes the facility ensures the recovery of as much property as possible.
Structural Cleaning: ASDT will use the specific equipment and cleaning products required to clean and protect the different types of surfaces. This process, correctly done, may reduce the cost of recovery by cleaning lighter soot deposits found on some surfaces, eliminating the expense incurred with repainting or refinishing. Includes ceilings, walls, woodwork, carpeting, and floors, among others.
Contents Cleaning: Using wet or dry cleaning services, ASDT will take care of the cleaning of restorable contents, these will be cleaned and deodorized to pre-loss condition. This includes area rugs, furniture, draperies, and upholstery.
Deodorization: Through this process, odors will be removed by seeking out the damaged origin sources.

ASDT is equipped to address immediate structural damage, as well as any subsequent reconstruction requirements.

ASDT specializes in damage control after a fire, followed by temporary structure protection, evaluation of structural damage, contents removal and cleaning, deodorization, deconstruction of all damaged materials, and settling the property loss claim on your behalf.

Equipment

It is important to deal with several factors of damage while, preparing to restore the property safely. Air quality is one of those factors because it tends to be in bad shape after a fire. Restoration, in this case, will require the best air movers, air scrubbers, negative air machines, ozone machines, and dehumidifiers to dry out and remove smells and toxic residues from the affected area.
In some cases, burned out areas are flooded by water from firefighters’ hoses or burst pipes. Among the equipment that ASDT technicians use in these cases, we can find the use of water pumps, extractors, or truck-mounted vacuums to remove all the water from the flooded part of the property.
For the cleaning process, ASDT’s team of experts will use the best cleaning equipment to recover your items: truck mount carpet cleaners, vacuums, certain chemicals, and special sponges to pick up the finest soot particles stuck in walls, floors and furniture.
