Fire Damage

When your home or business becomes damaged in a fire, the aftermath can be extremely difficult to deal with. Fires often come along with a host of related problems. Smoke can travel from room to room through air ducts and ventilation systems, polluting the air and leaving a sticky residue behind that can damage and discolor anything it comes into contact with. The water and foam used to extinguish the blaze can mingle with soot and ash to create a sludgy mess that oozes into hard to reach areas. This residue can cause unpleasant odors, staining, etching, and discoloration to your valuable possessions, as well as the interior structures of your home or business. Last, and not to be underestimated, is the damage caused by the fire itself. Fires can consume materials in minutes, destabilizing entire structures around the affected area and making restoration efforts even more difficult and hazardous.

Contact VIP Restoration for your emergency fire damage restoration needs! Call (240) 512-9202 or email us at [email protected] as soon as possible following the fire, and we will send our team of smoke and fire damage restoration professionals right away! Our first response team arrives with the equipment they need for a complete diagnosis of the situation. Much like water damage (and because fire damage often includes water damage), time is of the essence. The longer you wait to get in touch with a professional team, the lengthier and expensive your restoration efforts will be. When you call or email the emergency fire damage response team at VIP Restoration you’ll know that help will be there soon! VIP Restoration only employs technicians who have undergone their certification by the IICRC (Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification)—the leading authority on fire and smoke damage restoration techniques. This ensures that our response team has both the equipment and the training they need in order to use it to its best effect. When you contact VIP Restoration for your fire and smoke damage restoration needs, you receive our 100% satisfaction guarantee that your property will be restored back to its pre-loss state.

In order to successfully restore a property that has been damaged by smoke and fire, your restoration team needs to be schooled in more than one field of restoration. The service technicians at VIP Restoration can handle the combination damage that is caused by fires. While the fire is burning, combustive chemical residue is released into the air along with soot and ash. These airborne hazards can drift far from the original site, causing subtle damage in areas that were unaffected by the initial fire. The smoke and combustive residue settles in layers, and those layers of grime can be sticky, acidic, and highly resistant to over the counter cleaning products. At VIP Restoration we have specially formulated cleaning agents that were designed specifically to remove this residue without causing further damage to your valuables and inventory. If this residue is not located and promptly removed, it can cause discoloration to clothing, carpeting, paint and wallpaper, as well as appliances (even plastics!) stone, metal, and laminates. Without professional-grade deodorization techniques, the smoky unpleasant odor can linger for years. At VIP Restoration we have the tools and training necessary to safely remove damaged materials, clean and deodorize the salvageable items, and restore structural damage to your property. Contact us today and find out why we are the #1 fire and smoke damage restoration company in your area.
One problem that nearly always accompanies fire damage is water damage. Water is the most common method of extinguishing a blaze and the aftermath and ensuing water damage can sometimes be more destructive than the actual fire. Water can carry soot, ash, and odors into places that were not otherwise accessible. When contaminated water seeps unseen into the spaces below the floorboards, between walls, into attics, crawlspaces, and basements, it can cause huge problems that are not immediately apparent. For example, water that seeps between the walls can be wicked up into your insulation, saturating it and causing a slow evaporation that raises the humidity levels between your walls and a lingering odor that cannot be covered up. The raised humidity becomes a playground for mold, mildew, rot, and bacteria, which can weaken the structure of your home and cause damage that will manifest over time as bubbling plaster, swollen drywall, soggy support structures, and burgeoning mold colonies—and all of this happens in addition to the fire that damaged your property in the first place!

The formation of advanced mold colonies is a serious problem that all too often follows water damage. Mold destroys organic materials, including the wooden structures that hold up your walls, your carpeting, and even some types of linoleum and wallpaper. Worse, mold spores can cause serious health risks to those who are regularly exposed to them. Children, the elderly, and pets are all particularly susceptible to the dangers of mold infestation, as are those with allergies and asthma. Symptoms of mold exposure include headaches, nausea, difficulty breathing, congestion, allergy and asthma attacks, itchy watery eyes, and flu-like symptoms. Some species of mold can even cause permanent health problems. The last thing you want to deal with following a destructive fire is a lingering mold problem. The best way to avoid it is to call in the professionals at VIP Restoration as soon as the fire department declares the structure safe to enter. The sooner our restoration efforts begin, the faster and less expensive your restoration will be. Call VIP Restoration as soon as possible following any event of property damage, and see what a difference our professional team can make!
