How to restore a fire damage

7/9/2019 (Permalink)

1. Remove Fire Damaged Materials

First, remove all the burned and smoke damaged materials. The obvious items are the pieces of furniture and appliances that look like they’ve been through a fire. They will look melted and blackened and like they’re from the set of the most recent Marvel movie. The not so obviously damaged items that also need to be removed are the smoke-damaged items. All of the items in the adjoining rooms to where the fire occurred are unfortunately probably going to fall into this category. This also means that the paint and probably the drywall from some of the rooms, depending on their proximity to the fire.

2. Air Out The Smoke Damaged Space

Second and possibly the easiest step is airing out the smoke damaged space. This step requires the use of industrial air movers which are giant fans that rapidly circulate air throughout an enclosed space effectively filling the space with new fresh air and getting rid of the old smoke-stained air. All that needs to be done is to place the air movers in the space, turn them on and let those air movers do their work!

3. Rebuild and Restore

The third and hardest of all the steps is the rebuild, restoring the fire-damaged space to all of its original glory and maybe even then some! This means replacing the building materials you had to remove like paint and drywall and all the appliances and furniture and carpeting. Building something is always harder than destroying it, which is why this step ranks harder than the original demolition of the fire-damaged space. That being said many people will take this opportunity to rebuild spaces more to their liking if that’s not making lemonade out of lemons then I don’t know what is!
