How to Minimize Recovery Time When Dealing With a Fire Disaster

Understand Your Insurance Policy

Pre-Testing: Determine the non-salvageable items that have been burned. Then, determine how far the smoke and soot has impinged the remaining materials in the structure. We check all surfaces thoroughly and take samples to determine how far the soot has traveled and how widespread the damage is.

Removal: Perform cleaning and source removal ( demolition of materials non-salvageable). This should always be done before post-testing.

Post-Testing: Repeat the pre-testing process, and look under a microscope to ensure all soot and smoke has been removed for a true deodorization process.

Our Process

Assess the Damage: When a fire breaks out in Ionia, MI and you call one of our restoration experts, they’ll dispatch a team to your home immediately. Once we can ensure that the fire has been put out, we’ll work quickly to begin assessing the damage to your property.

Salvage Personal Items: A fire could destroy your property, which is why it’s critical to save everything possible. Our team members will peel through your property and remove anything possible, where we can then determine if it’s worth trying to save or salvage the piece.

Remove as Much Damage: Once we’ve removed your personal items, we’ll then begin removing damaged parts of the property. While doing so, other team members will assess the situation to determine the best course of action is moving forward. These moments are critical, as they allow us to craft our restoration strategy.

Remove Irreparable Materials: We’ll immediately rip out anything on your property that we deem irreparable. If we allow irreparable materials to stay in your home or business, we risk the structural integrity of the building significantly. Quickly removing irreparable elements enables us to begin the rebuilding and healing process.

Insurance Process and Rebuild: After removing irreparable materials, we’ll begin rebuilding your property. Other members of our team will start working with your insurance company to ensure they receive the correct claims forms. We do this for you so that you don’t have to stress or worry.

Follow Up: Even after we’ve restored your home to its’ pre-fire condition, we’re not done working together. We’ll check in and follow up periodically to ensure that there is no lingering soot, ash, or smoke damage. We’ll also confirm the smell of the fire is eradicated

Technologies We Use

Thermal Fogger: This machine introduces a heated fog to your building, replicating the fire. The fog carries a deodorizer. When heated, the pores of your home, which are currently housing soot, will reopen. Then, the deodorizer will enter the pores to clean soot and ash.

Negative Air Machine: This machine gives us pinpoint control over the airflow in your home, allowing us to isolate smoke damage and prevent cross-contamination. The device also contains a 3-stage HEPA filtration system to purify the air, keeping your family and our workers safe.

Chem Sponge: This state-of-the-art cleaning tool is embedded with special cleaning tools that are designed to tackle soot. Using the tools allows us to clean your personal items quickly, removing all traces of soot or ash. The machine will enable us to remove carbon safely.

Lift Tape: We use the lift tape both pre and post-cleaning. The tape picks up soot, which we then allow a third-party to examine underneath a microscope. The third-party analytics company will tell us whether we need to continue removing residue. This holds us accountable and helps ensure your home is clean.

Ultrasonic Cleaning Machine: This machine consists of a metal tank that we can use to dip materials covered in smoke or soot. The device utilizes water, cleaning agents, and sound waves to create tiny bubbles meant explicitly to remove all traces of the fire.

Specific Services

Document & Media Recovery: If you did not keep your valuables in a fireproof safe, we could work to try to recover sensitive information.
