The Role of a Professional During Fire Damage

Posted at 10:06 AM

  After a fire the first thing many people wonder “what are the next steps?” Hiring a good restoration contractor is key when it comes to restoring your home back to normal. You want to be sure to hire a contractor that offers 24/7 365 days a year service. The company should also be able to provide emergency services like fencing, board up, and tarping. The professionals are trained to come in and get your home back to normal as fast as possible. That is why we go through certain steps to get your home restored.

Emergency Services

When the fire department enters a property they will add more damage to the home to ensure there are no hidden fires. Therefore, holes in ceiling, walls, or busted out windows are common. The fire damage could leave your home opened up to the outside world. Therefore, our emergency restoration team will head out to your home or business to perform temporary services. Those services include tarping, board up, or fencing. The team will make sure that the property is secure and safe from any secondary damages.

Fire Damage Deodorization

After a fire, there is always a lingering smoke smell within a home. A good restoration professional will use several air scrubbers, cleaning agents, and remove any charred items within the property. The careful attention the team uses will show when there is no smoke smell left in the house. A good professional team will take your contents out of your home and clean all of your belongings that can be restored. At Thompson Building Associates we have an on-site facility that we use an ultrasonic machine and an ozone room to release the smoke smell.

Reconstruction services

After the emergency services, the job is given to our estimator and production team. The estimator will go over the scope of work with the client and work with the claims adjuster to come to an agreed-upon estimate. Once the project has been approved they will be moved to our production manager. A time is schedule with everyone (production manager, project manager, purchaser, utilities, and homeowner) to attend a walk through of the property. From there the project can begin. The production team will work to get your home back to normal. The estimator, production team, and homeowner all work together until that client is back into their home.
