FIRE & SMOKE RESTORATION
When rebuilding is urgent!
The first 48 hours after fire damage is the best time for recovery because acidic soot and smoke damage that is often produced when fires are extinguished accelerates the deterioration and corrosion of building components and vital assets. To compound the problem, fires are most frequently extinguished with dry chemicals or water leaving toxic smoke odor behind that must be neutralized and deodorized.
The fire damage restoration process includes mitigating damage, providing smoke damage cleanup and water restoration as quickly as possible after the damage first occurs. Beyond the visible structural damage, contents inside the structure must be evaluated for recovery based on several factors including:
- Replacement Cost vs. Restoration Cost
- Effect of Smoke and Heat
- Loss of Use
- Loss of Value
- Decreased Life Expectancy
- Sentimental Value
BMS fire restoration process includes:
- Prompt damage assessment, pretesting, and estimates.
- Emergency board-up and structural stabilization.
- Environmentally friendly methods for cleaning soot and other residue from fire damage
- Smoke odor removal, sanitation, and air purification.
- Careful removal and securing of damaged goods, personal possessions and other contents for cleaning and restoration.
- Industrial grade water extractors, dehumidifiers, air movers and other equipment used to efficiently remove water resulting from fire extinguishing efforts.
- Reconstruction of the affected areas.
- Disinfectants and antimicrobials used to prevent mold and mildew.
