Fire Damage Raleigh

Despite the size, fires are extremely traumatic and stressful events. Even the smallest fires in your homes or businesses can cause significant damage to the property and the belongings inside. During a fire, soot will quickly spread throughout the home and settle into all surfaces in the area. If these particles are not removed properly, the acidity of the substance will erode and destroy the structure and your belongings.

Professional Restoration Services will give you some relief after a fire has struck your Raleigh home. Our team is fully licensed and insured fire damage restoration experts who are here to help in any fire emergency. We offer a 24-hour emergency hotline and response team that is ready to respond 365 days a year. 

What is Fire Damage Restoration 

Smoke and soot damage can destroy your Raleigh home from the inside, out. The residue that is left inside a fire damaged property is highly destructive and acidic which will cause staining of the surfaces inside your home or business. If left untreated or if improperly remediated, the acidic properties will begin to break down and erode the structure of the property and personal belongings.

The fire damage restoration process will always begin with a walkthrough and full assessment of the property. The process can be a long, complicated, drawn-out process, so using a professional fire damage restoration company in Raleigh is crucial. Our team will use all the appropriate methods of cleanup to ensure your home is secure and returned to normal.

Fire Damage Restoration Process

After completing the initial walk through and a full assessment of the property, our team will secure the area. This includes tarping-up damages that have occurred on the roof, and boarding-up windows, doors, and other openings. This step is essential to keep unwanted water out from storms and will protect from other natural factors.

Many homeowners will forget about the potential damages caused by the water used to extinguish the fire. If necessary, our team will remove all standing and remaining water from the property with vacuums and pumps. After all of the excess water is removed, the technicians will start the drying process – which includes drying with hot, dry air and dehumidifying the area. We will also treat and remove any areas that have begun to grow mold.

To remove smoke and soot damage, our team will use air scrubbers, thermal fogging, and ozone treatments to remove soot and smoke from the property and belongings. To deodorize, we will treat all affected furniture, fabrics, and other affected materials.

Our last step includes restoring and rebuilding the property. We will restore and replace drywall, cabinets, carpets, and other floorings. This step will also include repainting your Raleigh home to restore the property back to normal.

Professional Restoration Services, like so many other small businesses in our community, is doing our part both to stop the spread of Coronavirus and remain focused on the safety of our employees and growth of our company.  Over the last few weeks, we have taken the necessary steps to limit our staff’s presence in the office allowing everyone to work remotely.  The foundation of our scope of work is to help customers with water damage and the repairs that follow, no matter when they happen.  Our employees are now working in our customers’ homes wearing the proper PPE (Personal Protective Equipment).  With that in mind we are continuously monitoring the rapidly evolving situation regarding this pandemic and we are continuing to make the necessary adjustments.

  • Our amazing staff is working remotely.  We are so thankful for technology that allows this to happen.
  • We will be continuing to meet with potential customers and inspect properties, wearing masks, gloves and shoe covers.

  • While jobs are in progress, if you have any questions or concerns, we ask that you contact your Project Manager by phone or email directly.  They will address them immediately.

During these uncertain times, we remain hopeful.  We believe these efforts are in the best interests of our employees, customers and the community.  We will get through this.  Our Mission remains the same:  To provide exceptional service during all aspects of the restoration process through clear communication and always putting our customers first.
